My Analogy of The Midterm Election 2010

October 19th, 2010

There once was a large group of people that were very happy with their lives and things were sweet… they decided to all go on a bus trip to a sunny beach in California.  There were so many of them that they had many buses and they were heading from the east coast to California viva a large bus convoy.

Somewhere along the way the bus drivers got together and decided to detour the convoy through Vegas. They gave the passengers all kinds of reasons why Vegas is the place to go, and even though the passengers didn’t fully understand, they had no choice but to go along for the ride.

About half way to Vegas all the buses drive off the side of the road into a ditch and flip over.  The call goes out to every EMT in the area.  Soon every ambulance available was urgently racing towards the wreck.

Once there they quickly started a triage emergency room to deal with the overwhelming number of emergencies at hand. After a short period of time, even though the EMT’s were doing everything possible to save the lives of the most serious injured, it seemed that some just were not happy with the decisions being made during triage.

Soon there was talk about taking over the ambulances and kicking out the EMT personal and replacing them with the old bus drivers… these were the same drivers that high jacked a well planned trip to the beach and while heading in a different direction drove the convoy into a ditch.

These drivers talked the people into thinking that the EMT’s were taking too long to clean up what was really their mess, and that they could do better. The people being part of the new internet society of wanting instantaneous gratification, quickly forgot about how they got into this mess and were ready to toss out the EMT’s and allow the bus drivers to take over the ambulance and follow them… but follow them where?

I would bet to the next wreck! I don’t want to be on that ride, but it seems there is no tolerance for not being able to correct a disaster that was 10 years in the making, in just 2 years.

Sadly with the invention of the Internet, and 24 hour cable news, coupled with the fact that the truth no longer is relevant and if you just keep repeating a lie it has a crazy way of being accepting by a sector of the American people as the truth.

Because of CNN and FOX news this country is in a constant state of election, and there is no way that anything good will be accomplished when all our elected officials are running for office.

How do we fix this?
