In order to fix what is broken we need only vote for those persons of same mind and conscience, those willing and able to create, amend and/or enforce laws that will change the Plutocracy we have become to the Democracy which is our birth right. We need not dodge bullets, suffer torture or live imprisoned. We need only drive around the corner and cast our ballots. Should the election of 2012 not motivate you to vote, the election of 2014 may well find your vote of no consequence. If we do not emerge in record numbers to cast our ballots for our own protection, those that have rendered our Democracy almost unrecognizable will assume by our silence that we agree to continue to be the host to their parasitic nature. America is teetering on a great precipice. Have you heard of the 99%? Bottom line, it’s you and me. What happens next is up to all of us.
I’m just saying…
