Where Do Americans go When The Government Fails Them

 

I have heard the debates about the state of our economy. I have heard about the debt ceiling and how the Social Security checks might not go out on August 3rd,2011. What the president and treasury don't understand by not sending those checks out the devestating effects on our economy as bad as it is now will be extremely worse. There are millions that receive Social Security and other types of government checks that they rely on. For some it is their sole income. If the checks do not go out this is what will happen. People that pay bills will have their lights and gas turned off. If they live in apartments they will be evicted with possibly have no other place to go. This leads to the homeless epidemic in our country. We already have in the United States millions of homeless people and now we are about to add millions more. Tent cities had started popping up in various states when homes started to be foreclosed on. We as a nation have seen what bad politics have done thus far.

The second thing that will happen since the government is also threatening to cut food stamps. These same people that are now homeless won't be able to get food either. Add this to an alarming situation. People are going to panic. They will be hungry and homeless with no place to lie their heads at night and the constant grumble in their stomaches. The American people that once had their home and food for the first time are homeless and hungry. The ones that had medical care and on medication will no longer have the means or the medication and this leads to death and deadly diseases.

The health care industry will slump even further because the people that where on Social Security won't be coming in and since medicare and medicade are threatened as well the doctors that make their living off of these people will lose money. The people in the nursing homes that are covered by these programs will no longer be covered and where do they go? What happens to the elderly in these facilities? There are people that are mentally disabled and a lot in mental facilities. Where will they go? No medication and roaming around with every one else.

Then there are the inevitable possiblity of rioting, loitering, and stealing. There will be more crimes committed by first time offenders. Mostly to get food and clean water. Theft will be out of control and there will be no place to put these people because our prison systems are already over crowded. How safe will America be?

What happens to the humanity of our country when we start taking away from the poor and elderly that receive these checks? Where is compasion and where is the right and wrong of this? Americans fought England to gain their independance from an over controlling government that over taxed and placed restriction on our religious freedoms.

Where do the American people go now that the government has failed? The government was so quick to give out loans to the big car dealerships and to the banks that don't loan out money and the lending companies that are now facing default. When that money was being giving out what ever consideration was their for people hungry and in sheleters? The money could have gone to help out the people not the greedy interests of those now not able to repay their debt.

The american people are getting tired of this over zealous government that has just about dictated every aspect of life. We have banned prayer in schools and separation of church and state and have decided to impose a health care program that makes it manadatory for every citizen to have. How do the citizens have the money to pay for it? How can any one tell another person where they can and cannot pray? Where do we go when our government has failed us? 

In my conclusion I believe that every citzen should be treated with equality not how much money they have. I know what is going to happen to the millions of people that will be without a place to live and eat. I know what will happen when you work your entire life and the things you have now in two short months it will all be taken away. I know what it going to be like not having a shower or food in my mouth or money to pay to see the doctor. I am one of the millions that will be effected by this American Tradegy.
