What is Political CHANGE??

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditmailby feather

The priority of CHANGE is prevalent in the rhetoric presented by all politicians, regardless of party or position of office, be that Presidential, Congressional or other. Incumbents or candidates; they promise to change the system for the better, and need voters to provide support to ensure their constituents will be represented by “Someone who cares and understands their plight”. Sound familiar? Do they all make the same claims? But what changes do they refer to???

As an example; Marco Rubio is a strong proponent of CHANGE. He describes Hillary Clinton as a “Candidate from Yesterday, leading people back to Yesterday”, indicating that at the age of 43 he is more suited to the highest office than an aged 69 year old opponent. (Incidentally; was Mr. Rubio’s political hero, Ronald Reagan, not elected into the Presidency at the age of 69 years?)

Let’s examine Mr. Rubio’s platform of change….. The majority of the U.S. populace understand and support a woman’s right to abortion, but Mr. Rubio is opposed, due to his faith beliefs. —¬† 61% of the populace are in favor of same-sex marriage, but Mr. Rubio is against passing this law, once again because the Bible tells him so. (In that same vein; Does Mr. Rubio ever wonder why gays and homosexuals were not mentioned in the 10 Commandments?) — The American public have been in favor of legalizing marijuana use across the nation, but Mr. Rubio is a dissenter of this change as well, electing to dismiss the obvious wishes of the majority. — All citizens want Immigration Law changes, but Mr. Rubio and his party members have shown little urgency to assess and solve this most important issue. — Americans without a monetary interest recognize the danger of climate change and are in favor of Clean Energy Reform, but Mr. Rubio states that he does not believe that human activity is causing climate change, regardless of scientific proof. These few topics and more are at the forefront of controversial dialogue and would they not be good references alluding to CHANGE??

So what CHANGE is Marco Rubio referring to?? He recently promised Grover Norquist that if elected President; he will NEVER raise taxes, and signed a confirming pledge. Is this a change or a political ploy designed to separate himself from Jeb Bush, who refused to sign the pledge?? Mr. Rubio and other¬† GOP leaders are in favor of amending the Inheritance Tax Law that will exempt 5,500 billionaires from presently taxed wealth passed on to heirs. Is helping the rich get richer an example of Rubio CHANGE?? Why would this political amendment be a factor ahead of the representation of over 330,000,000 American citizens enduring unemployment and poverty? ? Is it reasonable to imply that any political positions put forth by Marco Rubio will not be changes, but rather a continuation of his dogged quest for power, and more evidence of his attachment to individuals with the wealth to buy him into the White House?? What changes on Mr Rubio’s agenda reflect the unselfish needs of the common people of the country, and do not cater to the privileged?

Should the “Greatest Country in the World” not have a verbal, voiced right to to demand honesty from their Government and their lawmakers? Should candidates be required to substantiate all claims and intentions of positive improvement in American society that are not beneficial only to the wealthy? Should the American public become more aware of the political landscape and cast a vote based on common sense rather than believing empty promises?? Is to do otherwise not shameful and irresponsible???
