you ought to say it. That’s what I believe, and what I’m doing. I’ve been sitting here on the couch engaging in my Sunday morning ritual watching political talk shows. As I watch I am reminded over and over again how little our elected officials care about the people who gave them their jobs. It’s all about one-up-manship. The Republicans can’t stand the fact the Obama and his Democratic crew handed them their ass in 2008. So now the only concern for Republicans is to deny any and everything the Democrats want, and plotting on how they get reclaim their former glory. The Democrats for their part, are too wimpy to stand up for the things they campaigned on, and promised us when they wanted our votes.
This leaves us on our own. I’ve spoken about it before, we have effectively given our power away. The greedy and selfish politicians who we put in office will not look after our interests unless we force them to do it by reclaiming what we have apathetically given away. So how do we fix this mess we find ourselves in? We first have to believe that we can fix it. This is the most important point. Far too many people think that there is nothing they can do. They believe that the politicians are going to do what they want no matter what, and the politicians count on that kind of hopelessness and apathy.
Secondly we have to get informed. That doesn’t mean we have to become political experts, it simply means that we have to know what our own interests are, and what the politicians are doing about those interests. So…the action plan is this… give some thought to what concerns you. Don’t be corralled into what talk show hosts say, pay attention to your own personal interests. Once you’ve determined that, go on the Internet and get the email and or phone number of your elected officials and contact them regularly, informing them of what your interests are. Let them know that your vote cannot be taken for granted, and that if your interests are not fought for, you WILL vote for someone else.
Another thing you can do is talk to your friends and family. Encourage them to be vocal about their own interests and to resist being told what to think by radio and TV talking heads. If we as a people can get to a place of belief in our own personal power, then we can change things in this country for good. If we don’t, then we can look forward to more abuse by the Overlords…these government officials run amok.
If you have something to say…say it. If you don’t have something to say…you’re part of the problem…I’m just saying.
Stay Fly and Fly High!
