We the people, are told if we do not vote, we are the problem . We are reminded if we do not vote, we have no voice. That if we are not in the booth , to pick a side , a person, or a presented stance, your right to be upset with the status quo is no longer valid.
You see, this here, this, precedence that voting solves all problems, that it cures all woes, is in fact, a complication of our founding principles. . Most people have no idea what they are actually filling in a box for. Voting has turned in to a way to express this notion you oppose the other “side”, or “the lesser of two evils”.
We the People – Have the power over Congress, our Senate, our President – our Government. It was designed that, the People had the say in laws and representation. The United States Government was designed to serve the People. What currently exists is, the People serve the Government. We serve their special interests, their health insurance, their lobbying, and their campaigning.
How can we say, our leaders are For the People by the People, when the vast majority of the People only voted because they felt they had no other option. Because the People felt it was their civil duty to vote , yet did not even agree or know the policies on which they are voting for?
Maybe its time we stop choosing sides, just to choose a side you dont even agree on. Maybe its time the American people stop letting a stance on who and what they vote for , be the imminent factor of what defines their morals and overall influence. Maybe, just maybe, its time for The United States to start speaking to our neighbors once again, regardless of our political opinions.
We the People – have no power, have no control, and have no voice, when the only reason we vote is because we felt we have no other option. We cannot come together as a country, as friends, families, and communities with such hostility that we cannot even fathom to speak to anyone who has opposing view points.
We the People- have a voice. But we continue to feed in to the divisiveness , name calling, and blaming that we vote in to office. We the People have the ability to change this country, but it starts with us. It starts with how we treat those around us and those we do not know. Those we elect in to office is a reflection of us collectively. If We the People cannot work together – how can we expect our elected officials to work together? For if our Government IS made up of the People, we are hate filled towards one another.
We the People- expect our Government to act accordingly- on policies we do not read. On bills we do not know and laws we do not understand.
