Every time I see a call for this kind of change, I shudder in fear of what will come after and who will actually be put into authority over the
country. In all of this talk, there is never a discussion about what happens after the dust has settled, no discussion on the cleanup, no discussion
about what the general outcome and the kinds of change that people are wanting, or the solutions, both easy and painful that would need to go into
The general population is lazy, fat and in short content with their way of life. Not one of them are willing to step up to the plate, to be a leader,
or make the argument that would even get the general public to support such an action. Such actions are doomed to fail from the get go, due to the
fact that those who would advocate such actions, while the espouse the founding fathers, fail to realize that the actions that the founding fathers
took, did so with certain ideas behind it.
The first idea, is that they were willing to stand up and lead, not sit back and let someone else lead, but lead from the front. They were leaders,
and people of learning first and foremost. The Declaration of Independence was more than a document to King George III and the parliament of England,
but also a document to explain to the known world and the European powers, why an illegal action was perfectly legal. It outline in English and
language so plain, the arguments could not be refuted. That any legal minds who were to read such, could say yes the colonies had a valid complaint
and that the United Kingdom was in the wrong.
Even in the history of the USA, the protests of the past era, such as the civil rights movement, there was a leader, who spoke with one voice for all
of those who followed, whose goals were something simple that it hit the majority of the country. Those who would throw the first punch, often lose
the argument and support from the very people they need.
Take what is going on in Ferguson, if they did not loot and riot, then the general public, those who are not in that area, would have more concern and
the demands for justice would be more unanimous. But as those who are calling for such, within their ranks are calling for more violent extremes and
it is making the public pull away.
There are several problems that affect this country, the first is the lack of people willing to vote, to be involved in their civic duty. In the eyes
of many, there is nothing in it for them to vote. And often they are uninformed, and failing to do the research to make an decision and be confident
in such. The next problem is the very mentality of the general public of not in my back yard. It is never my rep or senator that could be the
problem but the other states rep or senator’s problem. And far too often those who get elected, tend to get comfortable in their chairs, and it
takes an upset public to get them out of office. If you want change, then there needs to be politicians like in the old days, there for one term and
then they move on.
Judges need to be appointed, to be not political what so ever, so they may do their job, not worried about having to run for re-election. Far too
often many judges below the federal level, have to go with popular opinion, rather than what is right. Far too often that often leads to an imbalance
in the justice system, where sometimes those who are more affluent get off with crimes, where others who do the same crime tend to end up with the
book thrown at them.
If you want to change the country, it has to start with the people, and then watch it spread.
