I actually lost my job working for the Obama campaign in 2008. I became a Field Organizer, and when I came back in January 2009 that job was gone.
I was 25.
In these 4 years I have grown... a lot.
Life is very difficult. My jobs are menial and my last one was Subway in June. Since June, I have not been able to find a job. I have been to about two interviews a week. WAIT, I had a cleaning job - right - I did. But, I don't have a car. So after a few weeks they said they didn't need me to 'buddy up' etc etc.
I had an interview today, Pool cleaning gig. Guy said he got 44 responses in one day off the Paper for a $8 an hr 40 hr a week job. I meet him Wednesday.
I do not get government aide... not because I don't want too. But because it's gone, gone like a fright train - gone like the a 59 cadilliac - like all the good things - that ain't ever coming back.
So. I'm considered one of those "Not Reported" numbers.
My landlady has been super nice to me for months... but she told me Saturday I gotta go. Tuesday. That's tomorrow.
Now, mind you, I'm a good looking, 28 year old, healthy non-smoking young male. Sure, I've got some past demons - no car - but I go to the gym every day, smart about what I eat -- extremely intelligent.
I have no idea where I'm going tomorrow....
Maybe the salvation army?
It's scary. I'm very scared. I haven't had money in weeks. When I do 'hustle' money (like painting curbs... heh) it goes to cellphone bill, food... and yeah, cellphone and food.
I'm scared as hell.
I do not have a college degree.
I'm a handyman, I can fix anything - work hard...
I'm so scared.
I don't know what to do.
People like me are perfect tools in revolutions.
Dont beat yourself up to badly, working as an Obama organizer isnt as bad as voting Republican again. ( unless it was Ron Paul)
What we had with Bush WAS NOT WORKING. He was the president when the crash happenned and involved us in trillion dollar wars were not needed nor justified.
Everyone seems to forget what we had with Bush. Idiots. I can forgive someone who wanted to work for the change Obama promised. He just did not deliver, neither party ever will.
Many of us knew the score and realized the system is rigged and voted for Ron Paul in 08 as well as this year.
Both parties are corrupt beyond repair. But at least Obama said he would try to change things.
You did the right thing in that respect. Now you just need to keep your head up and wait for a revolution. Its the only thing that will brong the change you wanted.
Your response is precisely one of the many reasons I feel there will not be elections this year. It is obvious to all what or who the problem truly is now and it is the PTB and the people now see that no matter who they vote in they are screwed either way.
The PTB see this oncoming tsunami of chaos coming after whoever wins as there will be no change in circumstances but only further hardship and so something has to be staged to masquerade this coming onslaught.
The other worrying bit is that even the PTB aren't even attempting on continuing the charade of normalcy like they used to do in the past otherwise they would have improved the economic situation under Obama. So after all the following Obama received and nothing happened after 4 years, who would buy into another sales tactic? Add to this Romney insulting 47% of the voters whose circumstances are as a result of the orchestrated economic crisis. I mean, you have to be really sheeple to vote for Obama or even Romney in this election. I'm sure people's consciences won't allow this, that is, if they still have any left.
Please verify you're human:
