One thing is clear.  If you do nothing helpful in this election, you have failed your duty as an American.  As previously posted, the current bad dream involving one of our major parties, is also an open opportunity to fix what was broken….  it is in this battle you must enlist and you must fight… There are many ways to show your support, just like there are many ways to support America when it had to go to war, even if you can’t pick up a gun and jump out the back end of a plane…

Financially.  It is so easy today… And $3 goes a long way if enough people do it… You most likely can spare $3. Find the person’s website, and securely transfer some money… You have done significant damage to your opponent.

If strapped financially but endowed with ample time, volunteer.  Any candidate you support, if you work for them, is helping make “America Great Again”….. America is the summation of its people.  Working with people to help people is the amalgamation of the American ideal.

All can see clearly now.  The enemy is money and those with lots of it.  Freely given to people of either party, it has made all government monogamous. The real battle (as those in the education wars can tell you) is between investment capital and human beings…. Investment Capital is winning because they have more control over our representatives than we do…

If you do nothing, the trend must continue. For it is like a train running full steam that remains unstoppable until it is stopped… Most societies across history, whether totalitarian, democratic, or tribal, were run by the oligarchs who own the most capital. That includes the Byzantines, Romans, Greeks, Hebrews, Babylonians, Egyptians.  That seems to be the evolutionary trend of all societies.Take Rome, it was a democracy for its first 250 years than a despotic tyranny its next 500… The momentary inability or its democracy at one time to compromise, thereby resulting in its inability to solve serious problems facing them, resulted in that democracy’s removal and the formation of a strong autocratic leader which remained until Rome’s fall 500 years later.

So it is a constant battle which must be waged against our natural desire to just leave our fate to others and accept “whatever”.. The bottom line is that this is not set in stone.  We can take action and we can control our fates, if we have the energy to do so.

The crumbling of the Republican party has opened a new door to reclaim power back to the people… All the money donated and spent by big donors, will be wasted either unseen or trashed in kitchen’s trash cans. But human beings working and outreaching, based on a love of nation and not financial pandering, can touch people and change them…

This is an opportunity that comes rare in a lifetime and if you love America, if you want a better nation, if you hope your children can achieve their dreams with nothing holding them back, then you need to accept that the only way that can happen, is if YOU, lead by example, and do something different to make that change…

All to often we sit back, complain bitterly about how nothing we do or say makes any difference without thinking why that is so…

The answer is obvious…

In today’s scheme of things leading up to this election, We The People really held no power with which to be held in respect…. Why should someone listen to us when there were hundreds of millions at stake?  But time, and time, and time again over this last four year election cycle, we have seen with our own eyes, that people organized DO have power and CAN make changes… whether it was to keep Wilmington’s Port unionized and owned by the state; whether it was to be allowed to opt out of the Smarter Balanced Assessments, whether it was to shut down a cancerous belching smokestack in the center of a 30,000 person city, when people came together and fought for their rights, legislators had to listen back down and the people won…

So you have to do something…  That is all… AS a citizen of this nation, this state, this country, your district… You have to become active.

And it’s fun… If you’ve never been to an open meeting where they are discussing things that DIRECTLY pertain to you, you cannot know how inspiring it is to see government dirty and up close, either working for or against you…

But YOU, need to get off your butts, and do something… That is the only way we will ever get people to listen to us… which is, that they fear us… Only then, are we in control over our government and not our government in control over us…
