How come corporations and labor unions lobby the federal government such that modern advancements in many areas - magnet trains and ethanol for autos for transportation being just one of them - and are allowing many other nations to get socially and/or scientifically ahead of the United States today?
How come the American people continue to allow the large American labor unions, and/or American corporations, to literally own most of the federal politicians; tragically, at their very real dire expense?
How come some states allow motorcycle riders the God given “freedom” to go without head helmets, while those who do wear a helmet have the God given “freedom” to help pay the extra cost of injury to those people who do not wear the helmets?
How come the American people don’t listen to Senator Bernie Sanders - the Independent from Vermont - and form a new political party that will represent “THEIR” wishes, desires, and/or needs?
How come the American voting age population doesn’t insist that the new “Citizens United” legislation - just approved by the Supreme Court by a 5-4 decision - foster an Amendment to the Federal Constitution disallowing unlimited political contributions?
I remember the words of a song sung by Janis Joplin a while back:“Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose”!
Am I coming through?
