We should be PEACABLY protesting the idea that we are being called traitors!!! We should be PEACABLY protesting the idea that we all need mental
health screening. We should be PEACABLY protesting for a better, more affordable healthcare system. We should be PEACABLY protesting for the end of
incentives that encourage companies to move their production processes overseas. We should be PEACABLY protesting the outrageous debts that are being
made in our names. We should be PEACABLY protesting the many attempts that are being made to undermine our constitution!! We should be PEACABLY
protesting for our right to carry on as a species and for changes in our environmental standards. We should be PEACABLY protesting for a quick end to
Gee, if we were as organized as the christian coalition, we could be protesting a different issue every day for a month!!
What we need to do is do some research on how the far christian right has manged to gain so much control and well copy their plan....get interested
and involved in local politics, start some really good talk shows, make a few thousand shady deals with the business sector, take back our local,
state, and federal offices.....
Write a few hundred letters to our representatives.....who cares if the read them or not, if their mail system gets backlogged enough, I'm sure they
will eventually open a few to find out why. I ran across a quote the other day, I can't remember who said it, but basically it was a warning from
one of our founding fathers...a capatalistic society will eventually lead to a small portion of the population holding most of the resources, and when
that happens, there will be a need for creative people to come forth to pave a way to a better why......do you really want those "creative people"
to be hard line conservative republicans who seem to be unwilling to have any meaningful dialogue with those who we ( close to 50% of the population)
send to represent our views simply because they don't agree with the views of the conservative. Write letters. If you have a son or daughter
struggling, trying to find a way into a college, without beginning thier life hopelessly in debt....tell them and well also inform them of your doubt
as to weather or not they will be albe to pay their fair share of that ever growing debt they insist on raking up in our name. If your son or
daughter has stayed home from school simply because you had to wait till payday for the medicine they need to function, well, write and let them know,
this is adversely effecting their earning potential. If they have been denied entry into military service due to "lack of medical records"(file
clerks too lazy to go into their storage areas to look for them since well, you've declared bankruptcy on them and haven't seen them in
ages)....write and ask them if once the draft starts, if their lack of records will be reason for them not to be eligible.
Write to your local radio and tv stations, mention stories you see poping up on the net....like servicemen writing home asking family members to hold
fundraisers, ask them if it's true, and well, if so, why there is hardly any news coverage on it, since hey, if the community knew that our troops
were in such dire need, we would probably get organized and be helping out. Or France indicting Chaney. OR, that a law appears to be passed
requiring all of us to be psychologically evaluated and treated. OR that laws are up that change the balance of power outlined in the constitution.
Write to ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Fox, ask them to look into it and suggest they do a story on it, and well, let them know, you beleive that they are
purposely overlooking some stories, unwilling to run them. And, well, if one of their competitors is brave enough to run with it and they aren't,
you'll be watching their competitor from now on.
Why waste your time out in the cold marching?
