I find it very humorous that we pushed and pushed to get change now. We wanted for everything to be revamped and fresh. Everything to be fixed and nothing to go wrong again. Many thought that the wave of the future was coming with the era of a new president. For some reason people thought that the color of someone’s skin would change how the political arena would be run. Well the change did come and in a big way.
No one wants for us to be in a recession yet we are, even cement prices have dropped out, the economy is undisputedly in trouble. We have more people unemployed then ever before. There is no way that everyone will be employed tomorrow but there is no sign of any vast improvement anytime soon. People are taking less paying jobs just to put food on the table. They are not making enough money to pay their bills and are thus falling deeper and deeper into to debt. Houses are being foreclosed on every day. More and more repossessions are happening. So now people have no car to drive to get to their minimum wage paying job and no house to sleep in when they get off of work. That is a big change. It’s a huge one.
There are few to no benefits that have come thus far. We are still fighting in another country while our country is still having attempts made to destroy it every other day. People’s family members are dying or being injured while over there because they feel as though it is their only option. There is no chance of them making it here because there are no jobs for them. Without a job they will not survive so they stay. We need this great change we were promised to come and come now. Stop hiding behind the political jargon and just do something. It’s time to just step up and fix our problems instead of worrying about every other country’s problems.
