What are we supposed to do? We have out of control inflation that our salaries can not keep up with. Jobs have been shipped overseas for the past 30+ years. The federal government has made it easier for businesses to screw us both as employees and customers. Our "elected" officials do not listen to us. Our RIGHTS have been stripped from us. Vote and election fraud is rampant. Our sons, daughters, cousins, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, mothers and fathers are sent overseas to die based on lies. The police serve and protect the money interests rather than the people and we are molested if we want to travel anywhere.
At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked by a woman, "Well...what have we got a republic or a monarchy?" His purported response was "A republic - if you can keep it." He didn't say "Don't worry about it - go shopping, watch American Idol, root for your favorite football team. We've got this." Whether the quote is true or not, our Founding Fathers designed a proactive political system - one in which We the People were in the driver's seat. We have been complacent for too long and look at where we are.
