I’m well read thanks.

You think Obama is going to go away because of a protest?

You think all the Americans who want socialism are going to change their minds because we come up with a nifty chant for the Tea Party?

Obama isn’t the problem. He is simply an outcome of something that is much deeper. Obama is in office not because Americans were misled. He is in office because that’s what Americans wanted.

Now, how do you cut that sort of rot out of you when it’s like a cancer that has spread throughout the entire system? A protest isn’t enough. Calling the Europeans ‘smelly’ doesn’t fix anything either. But maybe in a really childish way it makes people feel good for a few seconds?

The problem won’t get fixed as long as we are suffering from this delusion of ‘We’re America! We’re A-O-Freaking-K! Because we’re the USA!’

No, man. We’re not ok. We are in really, really bad shape. And it’s not like Obama losing the next election is going to fix that. It’s much deeper than just that and the problem will never get fixed as long as people pretend it’s not there- or as long as they pretend it’s only those rascally Europeans who are to blame and we’ll be ok as soon as we get ‘our guy’ in office.

Now, you can defend the state of things in the USA all you want. But not me. I’m calling it like I see it. We are in a world of sh!t.

“I’m well read thanks.”

Clearly not on the period I mentioned, or you would’ve noted the protests, riots, and various missions sent to Parliament. That went on for YEARS.
