ATS and the rest of the US finally seem to be fed up. For the first time in my memory, a considerable number of those normally uninformed are becoming
informed. Although the MSM continues it's tendency to choose sides and then obfuscate (love that word) the facts, they are reaching and educating
more members of the general public than every before. Virtually every politician, the congress as a whole (or hole, depending on the intent of the
statement), the president, and all of politics as usual is taking a tremendous slapping at the polls. It has become almost impossible to find anyone
content and/or approving of their own party lines or representatives.
With so much venom in the consciousness of American "democracy", will we really do anything about it this time? The rest of the world is watching,
and I would like to suggest we have a unique opportunity to undo a great deal of "bad faith" political maneuvering and intrusions piling up outside
congress' window. How long has it been since the PTB actually made positive decisions regarding world peace and truly demonstrated empathetic or
sympathetic consideration for anyone other than themselves?I am personally ready to get to the voting booth and send quite a few packing. Clearly, we
in Texas have plenty to choose from but we don't seem to be able to monopolize the hold on corruption or injustice in our representatives so are you
willing to give your own local, impotent, or unwilling to do their job officials? Will you accept that your vote really DOES count and go when the
polls are open next time? Or are you more likely to sit at your computer and be content browsing sites such as ATS or even contributing your distaste
but doing nothing tangible about it?
It is my hope that the American people have once and for all finally had enough. The question remains: am I wrong?
