When am I going to get a freebie?

January 10th, 2007

I do everything I’m supposed to do.

I pay my taxes.

I pay my health insurance.

And, sildenafil prescription soon, ailment if Senator Kennedy gets his way I’ll pay more taxes to pay for other people’s health insurance because they can’t (or won’t) pay for their own.

Government almost always makes me feel like the “good” son. I do everything I’m supposed to, but it’s the prodigal son who gets the rewards.

I am the middle class and no political party is on my side.

When Republicans are in power, they only want to do things that primarily benefit the haves.

When the Democrats are up, they only want to do things that benefit the have nots.

Which is why both sides must keep taxing the middle class to the point where they may as well just call us the “hads.”

I’m sick of being the packhorse.

I’m sick of working for everyone else.

I’m sick of politicians spending MY money to take care of the people who vote for THEM.

Unfortunately, there is no one I can vote for who can ever do anything for me.

My only chance is to get rich enough that the Republicans will represent my interests or wait until the Democrats’ policies impoverish me so much that I’ll finally qualify for all the freebies they give to everyone else.

    You are right on the money! No pun inteneded. I whole heartedly agree that in the bi cameral system neither side is really for the middle. Although at least the republicans usually don’t want to tax me into being under priviledged. Maybe the libertarians are on to something…government leave me alone.
