Being Left Behind – The American Experience
A continuation of an article originally published on our sister site RedWolf’s Hall.
On July 18th 2013, a capital city in The United States has gone under. The capital city of Detroit seeks to file for bankruptcy.
Now, in most other countries this would be a crisis, that the countries leader would seek to address.
You would think that a financial plan by The United States would be hatched to save the city? Sadly, you are wrong, below is a 17 minute video of President Nero from July 19th 2013:
What you get from President Nero is a nothing story on an event that does not matter in American history. What happened on July 19th 2013 sadly, the people of Detroit and the retired Detroit police officers, fire fighters, city employees, and school teachers, were left behind.
Now at the start of 2014 people who have been on extended unemployment insurance will not receive any further benefits. Millions of people who have used extended unemployment insurance to survive will now be left behind. The worst part is when you listen to the politicians, some are dismissive and just say that benefits should be extended notice how they will not say will be extended., to the worst some of these Tea Party Republicans simply degrade these people as parasites, sucking the marrow out of society. Neither of these opinions by the political class is acceptable.
These people who have been unemployed are not parasites, they are victims. These people did not deserve what happened to them, their jobs was stolen, their equity in their homes was stolen, the loss of their pensions was stolen, the loss of their homes was stolen.
The people of Detroit, the firefighters, the police officers, the school teachers, the city employees, are not parasites, they are victims. They did nothing to deserve their employment being stolen, their pensions to be stolen.
The United States of America is a nation who takes care of their own. When our people fail, we pick them up, we are a community, we are a people of the melting pot, we stand together in the good times and the bad times.
I do not know what has happened to the politician class in America. In this nation we do not degrade people, we do not lay the blame for an economic collapse brought by the bankers and politicians of this nation on a people who had nothing to do with it. These people in Detroit, these people who are stuck on extended unemployment are victims of a crime they did not commit. I believe in America, I believe that we take care of our own, I believe in “United We Stand”. I believe in the strength of America, and if the politician class does not believe in the strength of America then they need to be replaced.
If we show the world that we cannot take care of our own, then we show the world we are weak and vulnerable. See a fine example from Red Flag News.
A start for everyone else is to let the politician class know that their beliefs are unacceptable. Let your voice be heard, so contact your congressmen or congresswomen. Feel free to use this link to reach out and let them know how you feel. Do not be afraid to Raise Up, from Tragedy and Hope.
Always remember, each and everyone of us have the power to make change.
Strive to do more, instead of fighting for your right to do nothing.
