Two-Headed Dragon I

The Two-Headed Dragon
Pt. I

The left and the right are obsolete.

Democrats, liberals, etc., feel like they are under attack, like they have been lied to and betrayed. They don’t trust the authority.

Republicans, conservatives, etc., feel like they are under attack, like they have been lied to and betrayed. They don’t trust the authority.

But the distrust of Partisans lies only in the opposing side. Cons hate Clinton. Libs hate Bush. They blame the country’s re-occurring problems always on the opposing side, no matter that they never are solved, no matter which of the supposed “two sides of the aisle” are in power.

The left/right distinction is obsolete.

Everyone in-between, Libertarians, Greens, Socialists, etc., and the many masses who don’t vote and have no involvement in the political system KNOW they are under attack, have been lied to and betrayed.

The lack of trust is evident everywhere. I offer this: It is not each other we should distrust.

It is not true Democrats are Communists in disguise, and it is not true Republicans are closet racists and homophobes.

Not most of them, anyway.

As for the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, they both receive massive amounts of campaign cash, favors, incentives and “lobbying” from the industries or individuals whose interests they coincidentally tend to represent by passing favorable legislation and deliberately ignoring the voices of “we the people” whom they supposedly represent.

Nowadays, many voices are arguing about who, what and why are behind all the troubles we face.

We argue about what exactly it is behind the curtain – but more and more people are convinced the curtain exists.
