Keep an Eye Out!
There is something about victory over impending doom that makes the world seem a bit better.
Some folks have difficulty adjusting to the uptick in the political climate since the recent election. With a big win under their belt the Dems appear poised to bring balance back into the political arena that for the last six years has been dominated by one party.
The sudden shift to positive polarity has created many a sceptic. Sceptical of the motives of the new Congress. Many times in the past there have been huge letdowns after elections requiring the electorate to suck it up and move on.
This time it is different. Now after six years of being led down the path of attempted fascist overthrow, we have been returned to a better place, a place of Democracy, a place for a change in direction.
It must be kept in mind that the neo-cons are still there, lurking as only they can do, waiting to bash any effort to redirect their own agenda. Though we have gained victory, we cannot let our guard down. We must remain connected to the wonderful folks we elected. Keep in touch with your senators and representatives, let them know what is important to you.
Those of you with flaky congressmen, like Doolittle for me, would be better off directly challenging their actions when they serve their cronies rather than their constituants, not just the rich ones either. The attitude by some career politicos toward the underfunded public must not be tolerated. We must hold their feet to the fire of progress for ALL Americans, not just the rich few.
It is our duty as citizens of the USA to become active members in our government by writing and contributing to progress. Otherwise we will be back in sinister hands in no time.
As the past weeks events indicate, Democracy works when citizens get involved.
Keep up the great work!
