The Problem is You
The biggest taboo for any American politician is to demand responsibility from the people themselves. This is a nation of five-year-old crybabies. They see their Presidents as all-powerful Daddies who are expected to magically solve everything, instantly and without any sacrifice. "Daddy! Gulf bwoke! Fix it!!"
The last elected leader in this country who demanded responsible, grownup behavior from the crybabies was Jimmy Carter. He told you to stop consuming oil, stop worshipping materialism, and put on a sweater. And for that, he was practically tarred and feathered.
The crybabies want all their problems solved, but God help you if you ask them to take responsibility for it. Whaah!! Whaah!! I want my toy!!
You wanna do something about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? You wanna save the arctic ice and stop global warming? Then stop consuming, stop wasting, stop polluting. Give up your cars. Give up your a/c units. Give up your big-screen tv's. Give up your red meat.
Fat chance on that. The crybabies won't budge an inch, which means nothing will change, absolutely nothing. And your children and grandchildren will suffer and die as a result.
