The basic person in the USA is feeling sick in the stomach. We have lost faith in our leadership and it hurts. We have all grown up believing that our leaders at all levels of our lives have goodness and our best interests at heart. The recent revelation that the country’s leadership at several levels knew what has become “The Big Lie” on the activation of the Affordable Health Care, or named Obamacare. This program is really a democratic dream program that has been in the works for over 30 years. Obama just became its Sales manager.
The real question is why “The Big Lie” and what we are hearing is that it was conceived by the drivers of this program deliberately because the truth would have defeated its passing into law. In other words, deception is OK if the end means are best for all concerned. What hurts the most is the end means appears to be causing massive emotional hurting and robbery at the wallet of many people who are struggling to stay afloat.
So who’s to blame for the great deception. Some say the politicians, others want to blame the Secretary of Health and Welfare demanding they fire her. Some of us see a different failure….the Press. Our founders knew that political systems will always use deceit when it comes to control over the population and money. It is the nature of the beast and there is lots of history to prove it. The staff is also often very political and suffers from being required to follow the leader at any cost.
So our founders put the freedom of Speech and PRESS into the constitution believing they could count on it being the watchdog over the process outside the control of the three power structures of the government. What has happened however, the PRESS has largely fallen in love with many leaders in Government, and tend to support rather than report when the general public is being lied to. There are many that believe that lying is a form of freedom to speak and report. OMG.
I guess that leaves it up to us to be learned, read the documents for ourselves, and use the ballot box to stop the bad stuff. As Pogo once said: “We have discovered the enemy and the enemy is US!” Or close to it…was some time ago!
Have a great day, be kind to yourself and be happy!
