What Is Insanity?Posted: 20 June 2012
There is always that well used quote (by Einstein, I believe)….the definition of insanity is ‘doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome’……..but in American politics we seem to stick with the insane!
Insane? Yep! Since the 1980′s we have been told that if the top 1% gets tax breaks that it will benefit everyone…..same for the 1990′s….and the 2000′s and now in the 2010′s we are still selling this idea to the American public…..let us look at some stats…..since the 1980′s wages have been stagnant…..and corporate profits have soared….even in times of recession…..but yet it is still a campaign promise that the American people buy into every election…….is it insane?
You bet your butt it is! People are voting on a promise that has not come true in 40 years and we vote on it every election….(doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome)…….it is fine to be optimistic but at what point does it become delusional instead of optimistic?
‘Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome’………
Voting for the two party system……they promise and seldom deliver….yet the American voter once again believes that the campaign promises of the election well somehow translate into a better life for them and their family……but yet each time that are optimistic and vote for the promise they have been disappointed and yet they will do it all over again in the next election and the next batch of promises that are hollow and unrealized. Is that insane?
Once again….you bet your butt it is!
