Seldom do I go to town that I don’t find myself talking with someone, friend or stranger, and to a person they are lamenting the sad situation of America. And I’m often asked, “What can we do?”
My suggestion: continue doing what you are doing. Continue to fail to contact your legislators and county/city representatives about issues important to you. Continue to sit in front of the television when you should be voicing your opinion at a public meeting. Continue sitting in the coffee shop with like-minded folks who have the same complaints as you. Continue to ignore what is being taught to your children in the public schools.
Continue to sit idly by rather than attend rallies and protests against issues affecting our lives. Continue to fail to hold our elected representatives accountable or to thank those deserving such. Continue to be too busy to be involved. Continue not to “make waves.” Continue to allow our Constitutional freedoms to be usurped piecemeal. And especially, continue to fail to speak up. And we will continue to get the type of government we deserve.
If you want things to change, then change what you are doing for that’s the only way we won’t continue to get the same failed policies and the mistrust of our government will continue to build. All you have to do is to continue exactly what you’re doing now for things to continue as they are. And by all means, continue your silence which implies your consent.
