|Occupy Wall Street protestors are finally giving voice to what Americans are REALLY upset about|
The country believed him and elected him and it's all been down hill ever since! Obama seems to think that we elected him because he wasn't John McCain. He forgot that we elected him to fight for the working poor and the middle class. Time after time after time he has sold us out in the name of compromise. He is more concerned with working with a bought congress than fighting against a bought congress! I really could go on and on about the mistakes this president has made but that's not the point of this post.
REAL people are unhappy with Obama because The economy is still awful if not worse than when he took office, the rich 10% are still getting all the breaks while the rest of us are suffering, the wars have not ended, health care reform forces us to get health insurance through greedy insurance companies instead of a public option through the government. More than this I think it just feels like he talks a good talk but when it comes right down to it he caves and compromises our principles away so he can score political points and say,"Look at everything I've accomplished."
The mainstream media deceives us when it says that Obama's approval rating is low due to government spending and a liberal agenda. I can promise you that his approval rating is low because he hasn't fought for the people who put him in office and we're voicing our disappointment.
I won't vote in 2012! First of all I live in Utah so my vote doesn't matter either way. Utah is obsessed with conservatism and religion two things I despise! I'm not voting for Jim Matheson either, time and time again he has sold out his base supporters and he deserves to get kicked the hell out as do 95% of the rest of congress. People who run for office need to get it in their thick heads that if they don't stand up for the people they're gone end of story!
We need the democratic party to fear it's base! Democrats get into office and promptly ignore and chastise it's base supporters! Why? Look where it has gotten us. I am in know way saying that I hope that the republican wins the next election. I'm saying that I'm sick and tired of having having a political system that tells me that it supports me and then turns around and works against me! I have a feeling I'm not alone either. Just look at Zuchotti Park in New York! If I lived their I would have joined them weeks ago!
