Beware the Rising Ire of A Forgotten Generation

Confusion, frustration and outright anger are the only words I can think of to describe and define the undertones of a generation forgotten in the tides of history. These words are more than just a collection of letters with meaningless application; they depict the feelings and moods circulating through a group of people that have become disgruntled to the point of anger amidst the fog of deception emanating from our political systems past and present.
Distrust in our government grows by leaps and bounds, sparked by the actions of people who are bent on monetary allocation and blatant self-service. These “politicians” are the soldiers of a two-party political system that has become a farce, using popular media as a tool to promote their brand of control over the people. Republicans and Democrats alike call on us to protect the interests of our nation when they are, in reality, only asking that we give them the right to use us as fodder in their personal agendas. The time has come for real change and the deconstruction of the old ways and practices of a bygone era that has failed us all.
