Politics make me so tired. Mainly because it is terribly evident that at least 70-75% of the American public doesn’t actually understand how our government works.
The elections today were far more important than the presidential election, yet only a fraction of the people who came out in 2008/2012 showed up, people didn’t know who or what was on the ballot, and because they didn’t stand up and show out, they have allowed the GOP to control both the senate and the house for the last two years of a democratic presidency.
The same GOP that stalled damn near every piece of legislation on the table for 4 years because they were too busy trying to oppose the PPCA. Wasting. Time. and Playing. Games.
The same GOP that voted to not give women equal pay for equal work.
The same GOP that doesn’t want women to control their own bodies.
The same GOP that thinks people can actually survive off of $7.25 an hour in 2014.
We, the People–as a collective–are dumb as hell. Voting against your own best interest just to pledge allegiance to a party that hates a Black president. I truly understand why dictatorships are the rule in other countries–and I can’t say I blame them. Hell, would YOU trust a nation of idiots to run it successfully? SMH
