Ok, so people are disaffected, disenchanted, and feel disenfranchised. The big power interests have taken over the country, the world, and the government.
They didn't take it over, they always had it - but -
Your vote does matter. Yes it does - because if it didn't, there wouldn't be such a fuss. No - it is not all a sham - a play - it is not done just to fool you.
Sure we have come close to dismembering the constitution - yes, I certainly do despise the current administration and what it has done to civil liberties and human rights.
Sure - there is money and power on both sides, and the one thing that we know about money and power is that money and power likes to stay the holder of money and power.
But - there is - in my mind - a big difference between the two sides running. Yes - your vote matters.
Well, you say, between the candidates in each party - who cares? My answer is - you should. Your vote sends a message - not only between Hillary and Barack - (I could care less what Republican wins) - but the number of votes casts sends a big message.
Hillary and Barack both represent real change for Washington from the horror of the past 8 years. Both - together - represent the best we have to offer in terms of compromise and moving forward. Both - together - stand a chance of stopping a major war.
They need to stand shoulder to shoulder and fight the Republicans - and they will I would hope. But they need to hear from you - they need to know that whichever of them takes the most delegates to the convention, that a huge voice yelled across the country - I have had enough of this - I won't take it anymore.
Hillary or Barack - it needs to be an overwhelming vote - not an overwhelming victory of one of them over the other - that isn't the point and it doesn't matter - but we all need to hear the sound of the feet of the people moving - walking - running - to be heard. Yes - you - the people - you on your computer - you in your chair - not some American companies and their flight to offshore havens to hide their profits from American auditors, not the insurance industry which hires thousands of lawyers to avoid paying health claims, not the oil companies with record profits and soaring prices, but you - sitting there - with your real spending power eroding and your protection under the constitution slowly leaking away.
Please - if you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Missouri, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah, West Virginia , Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho Illinois, Kansas Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana New Jersey, New York, or Tennessee - then get your butt out of your chair and vote.
Be heard - make a very loud noise - say - NO - no more war no more destruction of the lives of the middle class no more moving profits and accountability offshore to protect the special interests. No more packing of the courts with toadies who will vote not their judicial consciences but their political interests. No more no more no more.
Please help everyone be heard and respected. Bring America back to its people.
