More Two Cents

To be honest, I was hoping Rebecca would be a more active part of this blogging thing.  How can it be a "He Says She Says" column when only the "He" is posting?  So I have read the comments, and I have had numerous conversations "off-blog" and am ready to offer my two cents about the whole political spectrum of things.  

As disappointed as I am that the American people basically got duped into voting for a completely incompetent moron, I believe we are being counted on to just lay down, roll over and play dead for 4 years and possibly 8.  I think the majority of dissatisfied America is just taking it as it comes and complaining on the side, waiting for time to fly by and hope the least amount of damage is done.  

I disagree with this approach.  I believe one person can make a difference.  Not by themselves, but it takes one person to rally others to move into action.  Letters, emails, phone calls to senators are great, but I think that often times these senators/representatives are set in their ways and stick mostly to party line beliefs.  I think the better ways to make a difference are to get people involved.  Rallies?  Perhaps.  Though not practical.  We need to be watch dogs and hold those accountable to perform the way we voted them in to perform.  When they don't do that, we need to let them no and stay true to our belief systems and ideas.  This Republic was created by men with complete fairness and individual representation in mind, and so many checks and balances were placed into our Constitution to ensure that we keep the proper leaders in place.  When things start going "South", like they have been for years now, we need a strong voice to stand up and direct people to enforce change.  I am hoping those that read this will spark something within them to begin to demand change... or if you are not looking for change, then let this work within you to ensure your views, opinions, and ideas are heard...and not just one who will roll with the punches.  

That said.... I am throwing this out there.  It requires no explanation.... Vasectomy or Hysterectomy?  Maybe this will get Rebecca to participate again.  If not, then I am going to just launch a blog for me to share my opinions with any who care to read.  I love to write.  I love it more if people are reading it, getting entertainment from it, and encouraging thoughts and participation from readers.  That's that.
