"Dog and Pony Show" of a Government

In response to:

Put another way big business’ greed is more important to the 1% than Americas’ well being. Or yet another way: big business owns big government and greed is more important to both than America’s well being.
So when are Americans going to short circuit this insidiously unhealthy connection with big government and big business?

Let’s see: the repeal of Glass-Steagall, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the mortgage meltdown of 2008, bank bailouts, failed health care, loss of jobs, failed budgets, failed immigration, Citizen’s United, NDAA, 40 years of drug wars, and a government who thinks it is OK to do drone murder without probable cause, just to name a few.

How much more evidence do we need? Isn’t there at least one substantial reason that all Americans should not be furiously mad at this “dog and pony show” of a government for?

Who is going to start talking about what we are going to do rather than what they continue to do to us?
We need to step out of this cycle of madness in order to stop it. More talk and debate will not save our country as it swirls around the already draining toilet.

We need to demonstrate to those who don’t give a damn about our well being that we do. We need to make it perfectly clear that we not only give a dam our well being, but we care deeply about our country and the futures of our children and grand children too.
