Time to Wake Up

Ballot 1I saw the meme above posted today on Facebook and it made me think,

“For the moment, at this point in the history of America, it would be prudent for every man and woman to put aside their personal political opinions, their leanings and inclinations, their personal “pro’s and con’s” about either party and just wake up.”

I believe America is at a crossroads. It is “now or never” for America. How our country moves forward will determine, in my opinion, not only the future direction of our country but if our country even HAS a future…

The time has come for political parties to fall away and for every elected official in DC, as well as at state and local government levels, to begin working TOGETHER in a bi-partisan way for the betterment of our cities, states and country. Two centuries plus of political bickering and bullsh*t have brought America to this point – is there anywhere to go from here but up?

Politicians are elected officials, put in place to do a JOB. If you or I don’t do OUR jobs, we lose them. The same should be true for politicians. Those men and women in DC are OUR EMPLOYEES, and I feel they all deserve to be put on notice. It’s time to cut the crap and make America “work” again.

I like to think I am a good wordsmith but these quotes say it all for me:

“Actions are the seed of fate deeds grow into destiny.” – Harry S. Truman

“It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their own selfish purposes.” – Andrew Jackson

“The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.” – Woodrow Wilson

“Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.” – Harold S. Geneen

“Democracy is still a radical idea in a world where we often confuse images with realities, words with actions.” – Hillary Clinton

Please pay attention to what is happening in America. We need to…
