So besides not voting, what can we possibly do to change anything BEFORE it's too late?
I have a box of dry food,
and few supplies,
a couple chapters of a survival manual printed out,
a skeleton of a plan for where to go (temperate, in the woods, with lots of plants, animals, and water, preferably in a nice big cave),
dreams of learning how to grow my own food, make vinegar, alcohol, soap, candles, and anything else useful that would make me and my kids less of a liability in a group.
I read up on Agenda 21 the other day. Spent pretty much the whole day reading everything I could about it. It seemed to make everything that is wrong with the world make sense instantly. Especially in the US. Wow. I look around, and while I become far more aware politically and socially as time goes on, I can not ever remember a time it all seemed so bleak. Our electoral process is a sham, so we are pretty much guaranteed four more years of the same crap either way. Nobody in power cares about humanity, really, when it all comes down to it. The rich keep getting richer, while everyone else is slaving and getting poorer. The corporations pump out toxins and poisons into our environment, food supply, and bodies. The police have become militarized, and it seems the government, and our military, is preparing for mass civil unrest. We have no more rights that were guaranteed us by the Constitution, and people who stand up for liberty are hauled off to mental institutions, silenced, censored, or worse. Our prisons are for-profit, and vow to stay at 90% capacity, primarily through the war on drugs. We are routinely lied to, manipulated, abused, and distracted. Our economy is literally on the verge of collapsing, and all people seem to care about are celebrities, division, and themselves. While I'm all for suicide, I plan to save that for something like speeding up the end to a terminal illness, so that is not an option, before anyone thinks that's where this is headed. I also have 3 kids I need to protect from all of this madness. Voting isn't going to change anything, so I jumped on the Presidential election boycott bandwagon, much to the horror and dismay of many of my friends.

I know I get upset when I watch a nightly news show, or read the paper, so I've stopped. I've found a few internet sites with decent news without the fear, hate, and suspicion. I've learned to enjoy studying clouds for their beauty. You have three kids? What a job, and what a joy, you'll have filling them with love, and goodness, and hope.
Don't let fear into your life, it can eat you alive. Run from your sources of fear if you have to.
There is so much more to say. You have been given, and have given, life. Celebrate that.
