Over a year after Katrina, after a year of thoughts of how our government should act. I am able to say that I can say that I have a new view on government policy. The past 60 years our government has been all around the world trying to help other people. There is nothing wrong with that policy, but we have to take care of our people first. When I used to hear that I would think that people were selfish; but after Katrina and New Orleans, Shreveport Missisippi, and all of the damage to the Gulf Coast (all places that should be rallying cries for revolution) I've come to the realization that not only does the government look stupid for not being able to help the residents on the gulf coast. And our country looks much worse for the quagmire in Iraq, where we tried to help them and we can't even help ourselves! In Lebanon, Hezzbollah is helping Lebanese citizens re-build their communities after they caused the destruction of their towns. Comedians have made jokes about Hezzbollah next big project will to be to re-build new Orleans. The sad thing is that Hezzbollah probably could do it. What is even more sad is that We The People of the United States of America look like sheep for allowing the government to do no good for the people of the Gulf Coast citizens.
We the People of The United States, in order to form a more perfect union should rise up and tell the government that we will not accept this neglect of our Gulf Coast brothers and sisters. We the People will not stand for the stealing of Landowners' land in the Gulf Coast. We should stand up and fight this to our last breath because if we allow this to happen in New Orleans, the government will come to our homes and take our land and take our freedoms piece by piece. We cannot allow this to happen. It is time brothers and sisters to stand up and make the government know that we won't let them hurt our brothers and sisters in the Gulf Coast anymore than they already have. We have to fight for our Gulf Coast friends like we are fighting for our own survival, because when it comes down to it we are.
