In Response to We need a new president and administration now by alfalfa109
I totally agree with the changeout. BUT I think what I am going to say is going to incense the hell out of a lot of sides.
I think the system of our government as we know it today is BROKE. Think about it. It is the only "machine" in the entire world that can operate while broken, parts falling off of it, etc, and it defies the laws of physics. Worn out, missing pieces yet it continues to run on and on. Whereas the system may have served its time to us in the beginning and throughout history til today, it is NOT serving us now. We have no accountability in any office today. It seems this nation is now banging a Not my problem, not my fault, drumbeat. Things that are wrong, that are known wrong, or simply detected, should have accountability all the way up the food chain. But sadly it isn't. No one loses their positions unless it is a media debacle to begin with. But for everyday issues that cost us as taxpayers and their constituents money, or resources, or flat out infringe onto our way of life should be dealt with just like a corporate plan.
I truly believe that there are those candidates whom really start out wanting to make a difference. Those that sit peering through a proverbial window and say "I can do better than that!" And possibly can. Problems lie with once becoming sworn in to office, the "machine" takes over and runs them over flat. They either conform to the ways of the government cronies,crooks, and unethical individuals or they get shoved to the side, never to pass anything, and eventually losing position in office. Happens all the time.
We need a TOTAL changeout of ALL positions in government. Some of these individuals have been in office for over 25 years or more! What clue do they really have about what is going on in life? They are surrounded and insulated by those whom steer them down the path. They eventually forget why they ran, and what they were or were not going to do, and just fall into a rhythm of the machine.
Besides a total changeout, we need reform of the entire constitution, and the mechanisms that are in place. They no longer serve this day and age, and I get it, the basics of constitutionally speaking of our protections. But we dont have necessary guidelines and rules in place to prevent this absorbtion of good people, who really try only to get put in their places if they want to stay.
No I agree with a total changeout. but also a complete teardown and rebuild of our way of government needs done. Because as it stands right now, we are basically voting for the LESSER of the evils and in the case of president we are not voting at all.
Fire all of them, and start from the ground up.
