We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better. - - Thurgood Marshall
Absolutely positively AGREED! The United States is filled with people who believe election cycle after election cycle that others will do what they continue to fail to do. More to the point, I believe that now, THIS YEAR, 2016, people are finally starting to wake up, realize that politicians will NEVER do the jobs that the people need to be doing in the first place!
These issues will NEVER go away if we hope in government to solve them. These issues will NEVER go away if we fail to act.
The ONLY way these issues are solved is if WE THE PEOPLE solve them.
In the preamble to the United States Constitution, it says:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
WE THE PEOPLE shall establish Justice. WE THE PEOPLE shall insure domestic Tranquility. WE THE PEOPLE...........
It does NOT say we the people shall abdicate our responsibilities and entrust that politicians will do right by us. No, we have to make this happen, this is our job. Thurgood Marshall had it absolutely correct when he made this statement, and while it was true previously, this year, 2016, we all need to remember what is at stake, and I challenge everyone to re-read the quote and determine exactly what he/she can do to help The United States of America do better. Not because we can, but because we have to do better.
Like I stated before, there is a lot of work to do, not much time to make it happen. Come work with me and make our world a better place for us having been here!
