Yes the world is watching America go through this Political Insanity which is Damaging our standing Globally more than both Middle East Wars, but more importantly we are losing our Future Standing amongst our most precious resource, our Young Americans. Young people see the politics of destruction and no compromise as more “In Your Face” style Warfare that has been popularized and forced fed to them for years now on Reality TV. I would like to think that a majority of Young Americans will rise above this hostile behavior but if even a small percentage follow down this road and into politics America will be ungovernable and control only possible by something resembling martial law.
Demonizing rhetoric and out right Lies about our President has tarnished the Presidency itself in a way that it will take generations to rebuild the polished image that all Americans once shared for the office.
The 2012 presidential election which should have been a proud moment to all Americans in history regardless of politics has given way to a far more powerful force of negativity and disrespect for the President and America, that is now being embedded in our Youth.
The Law of the Land, in this case “Obamacare” should not be subverted or used as a bargaining chip because then the example that we give our young Americans is one that says a minority can derail any law it doesn’t agree with and that would tear at the very fabric of our Democracy. The Republicans need to stand up to the extremist in their party, send a strong message that concession and compromise is a bitter but necessary pill that has to be swallowed by both parties from time to time. To back away from this politically made crisis would actually do wonders for not only America but it would go a long way towards repairing the image of The GOP also.
Young Americans are also being constantly reminded that unless you are rich and privileged you are a very low priority, they witness constant cuts to Public Education and Social Programs, College Tuition Increases and now suicide politics that are meant to deny Healthcare to millions of Americans. The teachers who teach our youth are Vilified and treated like a problem by the same politicians that cut their budgets and resources. We should stop and think about how this political climate is affecting our younger generations mindset instead of marching on to the next partisan battle with only one objective, to Win at any cost.
Their are no winners but plenty of losers when we deny hundreds of thousands of American government workers their jobs, plus young people see this shutdown and threats of default disaster as a reason to fear our political system and not respect it. In order for America to grow and regain it’s greatness we must have politicians who inspire our young to be the best that they can be even when faced with political defeat, to govern not for selfish pride but for the love of country. Americas future depends on it’s young, young people will rebuild America, young people will govern America, young people will decide on whether to be diplomatic and civil in their disagreements or behave in the way that they are witnessing now.
