We're All to Blame: A Brief look into American Politics

It is amazing that the one band that voices a political opinion that I can agree with is Sum 41. I mean who knew that out of all the groups that try to sell their political ideologies Sum 41 is the band I find common ground with. As I watch the news I hear about Senators and House members pointing fingers at who they think is to blame for the mess that has become our government, and the course of action it has taken. I listen to people talk about who is to blame for the War in Iraq, and the slow response to Katrina. I read about who is to blame for the moral and ethical downfall of our society. All of this American politics, which has become nothing more than one giant blame game. We should all put down our fingers, and open our eyes and ears to the truth, and that is in some way, which could include even the smallest of ways, we are all to blame. No one wants to stop and think about it, because no one wants to admit that maybe we are all part of the problem, and any opposition to what is happening is only adding fuel to the fire, because that is all most people will do. All they will do is object and voice their opinions, and show no sign of actually taking action. This is government by the people, for the people or at least it is suppose to be. All I see is government by the people for the Bureaucrats. This is government created by us the people. We are responsible for the people who are allowed to run this country. When only 26% of the eligible voters actually take the time and small effort to get to the polls idiots and assholes are elected. We as a people need to stand up for this country that provides us with so much freedom, freedom that you cannot experience anywhere else. I love my country and it's people. It is a shame to see it go to hell because Republicans and Democrats can't find some middle point to agree on. The liberal media doesn't help the situation and the true conservatives remain silent knowing that their words will only be drowned out by the liberal masses, and these asshole Republicans who think they are conservatives. True conservatism is a rare thing to come by in today's America. I like to think I am a true conservative. I believe in small and limited government, I love capitalism, and I am a strict Constitutionalist.

We're All to Blame
by: Sum 41
"How can we still succeed, taking what we don't need?
Telling lies, alibis, selling all the hate that we breed.
Supersize our tragedies! (You can't define me or justify greed)
Bought in the land of the free! (Land! Free!)

And we're all to blame,
We've gone too far,
From pride to shame,
We're trying so hard,
We're dying in vain,
We're hopelessly blissful and blind
To all we are,
We want it all with no sacrifice!

Realize we spend our lives living in a culture of fear.
Stand to salute; say thanks to the man of the year.
How did we all come to this? (You can't define me or justify greed)
This greed that we just can't resist! (Resist!)

And we're all to blame,
We've gone too far,
From pride to shame,
We're trying so hard,
We're dying in vain,
We're hopelessly blissful and blind
To all we are,
We want it all.
Everyone wants it all with no sacrifice!

Tell me now, what have we done? We don't know.
I can't allow what has begun to tear me down,
Believe me now, we have no choice left with our
Backs against the wall!

And now we're all to blame,
We've gone too far,
From pride to shame,
We're hopelessly blissful and blind
When all we need
Is something true
To believe,
Don't we all?
Everyone, everyone,
We will fall.

'Cause we're all to blame
We've gone too far,
From pride to shame,
We're trying so hard,
We're dying in vain,
We want it all,
Everyone, don't we all?"
