As America grows increasingly divided, politicians push to divide us even further instead of focusing on the solutions to most of our problems. Government isn’t the answer to someone’s life being in ruins, and it isn’t the problem either. If our leaders wanted to help us, they could start by offering some sound advice, namely, to take some damn responsibility.
The problems with already-diseased Americans isn’t the government’s fault. The problems with the crime in black communities isn’t the government’s fault. The problem with Americans not earning enough in wages isn’t the government’s fault. It falls on the shoulders of each individual who makes choices and takes action to either better themselves, or stay where they are.
