The new flag of civil rights, human rights, is blue. Our rights. The hammer of SCOTUS. The idiocy of congress and the hubris of POTUS, make this real. But there was quiet whimper of democracy that was brutalized last week … The voice of the people was beaten into submission by politicians who evolve, waffle, lie, deceive and dissemble. It is high time we took take back our voice, not the screeching voice of the intolerant (left or right). But the quiet call to arms of our fellow man….without righteous indignation, but a quiet will to listen, we will survive…. If we can take our faces out of the mirror for just moment. We might see the future and all its possibilities. Keep this in mind while you are wondering if your socks match your underwear There is something bigger than you. Your country. This country. And if you would take the time to temper your own desires, we, all of us…of every kind, will sustain the legacy of our founders……..”by the people, for the people”….”the pursuit of liberty, happiness” …..not from the government, but from us and from god!…….We are driven by political words corrupted by other word of division, race and class warfare…… made worse by a magnifying lens of deceit.. the truth is……we get what we deserve…..we elect, accept and are cajoled into submission…..In this, the greatest democracy on the planet, flaws and all….we decide how, why and who will govern us…..so, we do get what we deserve……but…If you care more for your country than yourself…..we have won the day……yet should you care more for yourself than your country…we have lost…..and that loss will shape our children’s lives and those to come after in a way that we could never imagine…….the moment you close your mind to the possibility of the truth, or the willingness to talk about the possibilities is the moment you begin to die.
