” GET INVOLVED”


Go Ahead And Put It Off

We can always find excuses for sitting back and letting the world pass us by. “I work too hard and need to relax”, “I don’t have time to get involved”, “It won’t do any good anyway”, and a host of others provide substantial validation to those looking for it. If our founding fathers had been as anxious to get involved,

I ought to love my wife today,

and spend some time, do things her way.

And pull my share, I really should,

but TV’s just too good.

I ought to spend time with my son,

teach right from wrong, and have some fun.

Quality time, I think I could,

but TV’s just too good.

I ought to see my minister,

and ask him now to administer

A prayer for hope, I really would,

but TV’s just too good.

I ought to write my congressman,

and let him know how fed up I am.

And speak my peace, I really should,

but TV’s just too good.

I ought to scream my thoughts out loud,

let others hear, create a crowd..

And do something, I really could,

but TV’s just too good.

I ought to hate my complacency,

getting late, for you and me.

Losing my rights, and you are too,

TV’s just no damn good!

Big business rules our world today,

could care less, who’s in the way.

Minimum wage, almost all they pay,

Repo’d TV away.

I got no way to fight or run,

lost my car, they took my gun.

I‘m just a slave, long as I live,

Got nothing left to give.

Why’d I stall, it makes no sense,

couldn’t start, come off the fence.

Procrastinate, thought it could wait,

But now it’s just too late.

 

A Quick Note…

No, the world isn’t going to end tomorrow. “Rome wasn’t built-in a day” and we won’t take care of our nation’s weak spots overnight!

However, what’s wrong with getting involved and starting the wheels turning? We’ve got a great country, but as with anything, it’s got to be maintained properly to run smoothly. There’s a lot of gunk clogging its injectors right now. It just needs some maintenance!

How about setting a two term maximum for both the Senate and the House of Representatives? There’s way too many lifelong favors and relationships built with industrial and special interest lobbies. How can we be represented when there are others ahead of us in line with different agendas?

The exceptionally wealthy have made politics a rich man’s game starting with the multi-million dollar campaigns. Instead of grass-roots politics, it has become “Silver Spoon” politics. Do you really think they have your best interests in mind?

Slowly we are becoming cattle. Business has coined the concept of “Political Correctness” to eliminate freedom of choice. Why should we be forced to give respect to someone who has not earned it? Are basic manners, that come with proper upbringing, so far gone that now laws replace them? If we don’t follow this concept for whatever reason, we are guilty of a crime and either terminated or prosecuted. Freedom of speech is also in danger in this concept! If the wrong person thinks you’ve said something that you haven’t, there is such a fear factor running loose for fear of lawsuit, that once again, you will be terminated or worse! If this doesn’t create a society of cattle, afraid to act, afraid to speak, afraid to express..”What Does?”

You can instigate change! But, you’re not going to do it watching reality television.

GET INVOLVED!
