Stop Drinking the Kool Aid

Rock on Russell Brand.  Let's hope there isn't an Illuminati because if there is here's their next target.   The comedian (that I'll admit I fell in love with thanks to the Rock of Ages movie) had plenty to say about his political views.  Brand admits he doesn't vote and calls for a Revolution.  With the way things have looked in Washington recently, I'd say his words might resonate with the people.  Obviously our current political system isn't working for "We the People." 

We can't get an honest answer from the media because their pockets have been lined by the respective parties.  "The truth" is  a Hollywood script in the press lately.  Benghazi, Obamacare, and the inability of our leaders to act like adults has most of the people I've talked with sick of politicians and the games they play. Perhaps it is time for a Revolution.  Main stream media can't give unbiased opinions so maybe it's time that bloggers fulfill their rolls.

No matter what side of the fence you choose, it's hard not to notice that things aren't working for the American People.  That leaves two options.  Stick your head in the sand and continue drinking the Kool Aid, or wake up and start taking an interest in fixing the problems.  I'm all for a good fiction book but the reality is this country has serious problems that need to be addressed and our leaders seem more interested in lining their pockets than coming up with real solutions.

I don't have the answers but what I do have is a love for this great country and watching it being destroyed breaks my heart.  So is a Revolution the right way to go?  When you look at the path we're walking down I don't see any other alternative.  I'm sure there are smarter people than me reading this blog, so give your opinions.  Perhaps the greatest Revolution is the average citizen just waking up enough to realize that something is very wrong in this country and taking a stand?
