We always had the power. We don’t need to sleep in the streets. We don’t need to protest anything.
If we organize ourselves, write about what we want, and tell our representatives what we expect from our government, then we have only to elect public servants who will carry out that imperative.
When people complain about their government, they have only themselves to blame because our government was designed to be of the people, by the people, and for the people. If we believed what they said, but it didn’t work out the way they promised, then maybe they lied to us. If they lied, then how do we know they won’t lie again?
Take back your vote and exercise your patriotism! Vote out the people who have disappointed you. Write in the candidates who don’t kowtow to special interests!
