America has a Problem
With it’s government and it is not the problem you think it is.
There is a huge disconnect between what we want our government to provide and what it thinks it is suppose. The things we want from are government are easy to figure out. The list is provided for us in the preamble to our most important founding document.
- Form a more perfect Union
- Establish Justice
- Insure domestic Tranquility
- Provide for the common defense
- Promote the general Welfare
- Secure the Blessings of Liberty
This is the What, what needs to be done. The rest of that amazing document is the How. The problem, is that we seem to have lost sight of the most important part. The Who, it is the first three words.
How did we loss sight of this? When did this happen? Why did we hand over the keys to the kingdom to career politicians? This was not how things we to be done. This was not the plan.
Now we are in a quagmire of shit. The two parties, that have been running the place into the ground, have given us the worst possible options. Sure there is a third party, and maybe enough people will vote for that candidate that it will get matching dollars in the next election. But, if you think for a second they have a chance this time you are as crazy as, ….., as the two leading candidates.
How do we fix this? There is only one way, we need to put the We back into “We the People”. We need to start doing our civic duty. We need to start running for whatever office interests us. We need to set an example. We need to live by the document that founded our government. It doesn’t have to be for multiple term, you just have to do it.
If we don’t, if we don’t step up. That document will not be able to hold us together much longer.
