We in America are sitting on a precipice. There is a duly acknowledged oligarchical dictator in power who is guilty of high crimes & misdemeanors. We have 2-2, people, it's not just Iraq-wars we are blundering through with no clear end in sight or in definition. Our economy is failing for the general populace, booming for the wealthy & the corporations. Yet, the voice of protest is strangely muted. There are a few here and there, we have Dennis Kucinich delivering articles of impeachment on the House floor, there's Air America and other left wing media outlets. But, still the opposition that needs to present is not being heard. Is it the media's fault? Yes, but are you doing anything to change that? Is it the Congress' fault? Yes, are you doing anything to change that? Is it your fault? Yes, are you changing? You need to write letters, you need to form protests. It's a very individual set of actions, but it needs to be done. Don't wait for a large group to join, ACT. I like America, it's a great nation. Democracy is a great idea. We have to preserve it from people who see it as an opportunity to grab money and power. We have to live in this world, even if they don't think they do.
