The Topic I Rarely Like to Touch
I'm reaching a very grievous point when it comes to politics. What does one do when politics no longer represent? Democrats don't have the answer. Nor do Republicans! So who's representing me? When does the point come where the American people say enough is enough and let's have a little more of that constitutional stuff we originally were based on-- true representation. So far in the latest run, nobody is talking my language and it's the same old Democrat-Republican hodgepodge that keeps our country from being truly good. Truly good how, you might ask? Tell me, how in the world did our country end up supporting those who violate human rights laws? How did our country create fear in those fleeing from poverty to the very dream that our forefathers came to. Our forefathers were lucky enough to come at the right time, I suppose. Too bad some of these chose the wrong century in which to be born. Let's keep our country secure. I'm all about background checks and regulations. But how about being a nation who cares? How about being a nation that defends human rights and cares about people inside and outside of the borders? I know, you may have seen my paper where I admit that there's little a government was ever made to do but to look inwardly, but I suppose that is only the reflection of its people, who apparently continue to look inwardly. At times I am proud to be an American. I just wish that meant that I too could be represented, as someone who cares about both my children and the children under human rights persecution across the world. Is that a possibility?
