What’s the difference between us and the Russians? They don’t care about politics or politicians, as long as they have an apartment, a good paying job and food. They’ve withstood life under the czars, the Revolution, Stalin, and now Putin. The Russian people are ok as long as their lifestyle remains untouched. Tamper with their right to life, liberty and their pursuit of happiness and the Russian people will not tolerate their governments lack of concern for their rights. Take away the apartments of 1.6 million Muscovites and they take to the streets.
They’re different then us. We are consumed with Politics and politicians and quietly accept our fate, like frogs boiling slowly. Otherwise, how can you explain our denial of the facts. American rights have been eroding since the 80’s, yet most of us didn’t realize the harm done to us till recently. Some still believe in the “goodness” and capability of Donald Trump and his Administration. They’re accepting the Party line. They deny their reality and believe with all their heart , as he continues to destroy our Institutions and degrade the rights of labor , that he will produce “good” paying jobs for them.
One has to wonder why are Americans so tolerant? The rest of the World appears to be demanding an end to cronyism and corruption, while we accept it and shrug off it’s effects at our peril. Our economy is not improving. Wages are stagnant. Good paying jobs at the management level are non existent.
Wake up America! We’re being swindled. The alt right will not stop their crusade against the poor and the Middle Class till we’ve all taken to the streets or we’re dead. Stop deluding yourselves, change is slow. I understand. After 9 yrs of being patient myself, I realize there are no white knights to save us. I was hoping for a 3 rd Party to emerge and that never happened either.
I am now my own advocate for change. Enough is enough. Bills are passing the House that make my hair curl and few say anything. Every decent Congressman on both sides of the aisle should be denouncing these assaults on “we the People”. I hear some opposition on the GOP side but not many. We need real dissent to counter this extreme agenda. We need centrists.
I’m no politician and I will encourage decency no matter who says they stand with the American people. Everyone else should get out of our way as we advocate for Legislation that improves the lives of the poor and the Middle Class. I’ll detail how to generate revenue on Periscope at 11am.
Together we can build an America for the 22 nd Century. Wake up and join me before we’re boiled alive, ” just like the Frogs”.
See you at 11am and we’ll chat. More to follow. Other thoughts to be published tomorrow. Have a great night.
