what y'all need to fix this

we are readjusting up here but our infrastructure is gonna suffer beyond our will to repair
much like what is happening right now in the rust belt
i gotta admit i don't have any sense of kinship for what is viewed as a majority down there
only towards my friends in the states
do you think there is too much splintering for a revolutionary movement?

To put it right out there. We're fucked. FUBAR'd
The rest is a pony show. The left/right paradigm, the wars, the unemployment, etc....all means nothing once we hyperinflate teh currency to keep the shell game rolling and international trade partners leave us behind.

i'm not that old but fuck me thirty years ago we had to store our garden vegetables in a root cellar over winter
we could not get a tomato in january and we went to a butcher shop for groceries
we had a four acre wood lot for fuel with a house in the centre of it made of ash trees insulated with newspaper
neighbours were dairy and beef farmers, we would trade labour for product
all this i remember fondly today as i sit here in a semi detatched townhouse burning natural gas discussing the end with folks
in another country. i wonder what i will have for lunch as my choices are so vast it confuses. within one block i can get any number of foods
filled with wood or enjoy delicacies from other nations which naturally wouldn't be able to be created within 1000 km's of here
not much fun but i do remember and if i have to i will
before the grid falls off of us

there'll certainly be a final boom before everything goes bust. i'm all-in as far as the stock market is concerned. might
as well ride it up one last time to enable a smooth and reliable transition to a self-sustaining life far off in the woods. this shell game
has been perfected and can continue for a long time.
climate change will be the earlier downfall. just look around. we're doomed.
in the meantime i'm moving to an organic vegan diet, cutting back on alcohol consumption and staying out of the sun as access to quality medical care will be one of our first luxuries to dry up.

but the little voice inside kept repeating it over and over again.
I wonder if it is possible.... it definitely has to start somewhere, and usually it's with an idea. Wait, not usually... always.
The problem with that idea it seems is that if it was possible for that to happen and change the country in a good way, it would also be just as possible for it to happen and completely destroy the country... sooo... yeah that's where I'm at with this idea.

Anyone else who gets elected will have to learn the ropes, first, and then campaign for the rest of the time just like Obama has had to.

Yup, he had a shot to do something early and dicked around. He should have siiRb when he had the chance.
I was explaining to someone why I feel our sitting President is/has seemed so impotent and it basically boiled down to that he didn't ram his campaign agenda through. Pretty much along the lines of the sentiment of the op.
You'd think they'd learn from the Reps in that regard
