USA: The United Slaves of America

The more I read into the direction this country is headed, who is leading us there and why, the more I feel the need to stand up and be heard. One voice is nothing, a fly-speck on the Great Wall. One hundred voices, one thousand voices, one million voices, now that is what it will take to regain control of this country. I am calling for every citizen of these great 50 states to take peaceful action and assume the office into which we are all born: public office. A government of the people, by the people and for the people. The majority is ignorant, feels small and ineffectual and just doesn't care anymore. They've lost faith in the system and have lost their voices. We can all take back America from the Authoritarians. This web is so large and sticky that one simply goes crazy trying to find where it is attached to the wall. We have to find that attachment and pull it off, let the web unravel. Stop letting this kabal of fear-mongers scare us into believing that sacrificing our liberty is necessary for safety. The immortal words of Ben Franklin, "Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither".

We all have a voice, a single loud and effective voice. If our elected officials don't act on the issues we want, they lose elections, period! We have the power to run this country, we DO run this country. We must educate. We must organize. We MUST UNIFY!!!!

America, it is time to drop that cheeseburger and remote control, pick up the telephone, grab that pen, type that letter.

This is our country and no one shall take it from me, from us, from We the People....

How many times have you come to realize that your actions were perceived completely opposite of your intentions? I've recently made decisions that have caused me some emotional distress. Apologies cannot reclaim the trust one holds in another. In storybooks, a good deed can erase a bad one, but in the real world, nothing of the kind exists. "I'm Sorry" doesn't cut it, and the road to redemption is wrought with personal peril. All in the name of vanity, so I could sit with the big boys; because of this my name is soiled and a wonderful person's heart has been broken. Free advice: don't lie, even if you think it isn't a big deal, even if you cannot imagine that this little lie could hurt someone. Regardless, lies cut deep and the wound heals slower than you may think.
