Let me get this straight: Moments before a fragile vote in the American House of Representatives, a member of one political party decided it was the perfect time to give an incendiary speech criticizing members of another political party which in retaliation decided to let a critical piece of legislation fail and potentially throw the world into the next great depression?
Are you kidding me?
Couldn’t we Americans come up with better people to run our country than this? The problem is that, instead of voting for whoever we think would best be able to govern, we let ourselves be tricked by political parties into thinking that the opposing candidate is secretly a child molester or possibly even a dog-doo sniffer.
Are we really that stupid? Do we really believe such nonsense?
The first thing we need to do is abolish all political parties and force every candidate to personally explain their positions without the influence of groups; secondly, we need to allow whipped-cream pie fights in congress so that every time somebody does something stupid they are immediately slammed in the face like Soupy Sales answering the doorbell.
Who’s with me?
I’ll bet it would be a lot more productive–and a lot more entertaining–than the constant name-calling and finger-pointing that goes on now!
