The litany is endless. It's discouraging.
"We can't change anything in Washington DC."
"The govt. doesn't listen."
"We have no say."
Or many, many words to that effect... As I said, the litany is endless, and discouraging.
You want to know what I hear when I hear people say that sort of thing?
"I don't care enough about my future, or that of my children, to get off my ass and work to make a change.
That's what I hear.
In just over a year, mid term elections roll around one more time.
We, once again, have a chance to send a message to the congress critters infesting Washington DC. We have a chance to tell them that we are tired of
them not listening, ignoring our wishes. ...and not just the critters in Congress either, it'll be heard in the Oval Office, too.
If we can be bothered to send it. Big if...
I'm not about to tell you who to vote for, though I would urge you to vote out incumbents.
That is the only message these clowns will understand... The looming specter of unemployment. The looming specter of no longer being "special".
This is our undeniable power, should we bother to utilize it.
But the key is not just voting. It also involves helping get a candidate that you can wholeheartedly support. ...and at the same time, not be
pigeonholed by establishment PTB's...that means getting involved in party politics people. Whether Dem./Rep. or other, you must be ready to get down
and dirty. Are you? Or are you going to roll over and show your throat?
After all that, and voting your guy/gal into office, it doesn't stop there. You must communicate your wishes to him/her...constantly.
This is our POWER. It can't be taken away, it can only be given away. What we give, we can take away, and it's about time we
"I'm angry about..."
"I don't like..."
How often have we heard it? Read it?
Lots. ...and lots.
Well, folks, it's time to step up, and let that anger and displeasure be felt. Felt in the only way a politician will feel it. By taking away their
offices, and putting someone else in it. It's time and past to utilize that very real power we seem to have forgotten we have.
It's not up to some nebulous other... It's up to you. ...and you. Yes, you, too. Not to mention me.
If we don't do it? Who will? If we don't do it next November, when will we?
I think you know the answer as well as I. No one, and never.
