The problem really isnt with all news channels it really is a problem with us, as citizans of this country that we have our heads too far up our butts to think for ourselves. We have all been fighting for our political party to succeed, arguing that one is right and one is wrong. Who is right when everything has been all handled so obviously wrong? We can argue that our preferred party is the superior one, the correct one and the financially responsible one. Well I sure have had my thoughts and I still do, but who really is to say that my opinion is any better than someone elses, let alone the correct one. Seriously though, it runs so much deeper than our current political situation. The majority of our country has lost hope. So many have given up on personal responsibility. Our once strong and independent people now look to an imaginary source of comfort. I am ashamed and heartbroken by the spirit that has been sucked out of our people. What happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave, it is forgotten. I am still hoping that the despair and loss of self preservation will be lifted and we can once can all once again learn to stand on our own two feet. Gone are the concepts of taking care of others, so many now expecting the government to do this. When we could be helping others individually, instead of all fighting about which way the government should step in. What happened to our dreams, the countries sense of pride and entrepreneurship? My parents came to this country based on an ideal of what the United States of America represented. They were in search of the path of self improvement and achievement. Yes, we all have failed; the buy now, pay later buisness plan that so many corporations and individuals have based their lives on is an epic fail. Certainly there must be a way to fix this, I dont see any ideas from either party that does really address the core of the problem. Instead they are just providing band-aids, which will eventually fall off. So really instead of being angry at the government, for what we feel is wrong, and relying on our television programing to inform us. Wouldnt it be better to work together to solve the bigger issues. By being angry with our government we are allowing ourselves to be dependent. Of course, it will never change, and it is very, very sad that a very large portion of us can only see one view or side of things, instead of embracing concepts and showing empathy to others. It is really time to send the irresponsible politicians home, it seems like so many, are so out of touch with reality that they are useless to our country's needs. Unfortunatly none of this can happen, if we really truly cant see past the news or the political party we are registered under. Okay now, I know this extended way beyond which news station is the most accurate, but it just drives me crazy that we all and I am including myself here, just firmly believe that our own interpretation, of a fact, is the correct one.
The deepest human defeat suffered by human beings is constituted by the difference between what one was capable of becoming and what one has in fact become
