I sometimes wonder what people are thinking. How could you do this? What were you thinking? Really? Instinctively I would like to hug and love all people, but through a lifetime of conditioning I have unfortunately learned to keep a “comfortable distance”. It’s sad actually. Why is it that our society has a collective cold shoulder to the world? We quickly judge one another and lay down verdicts without taking a moment to discover an underlying truth.
The political world is the perfect example of shoot first, ask questions later. Worse, it appears from this vantage point, no questions are even bothered being asked, at least not the truly important ones. For instance: How will this benefit the betterment of humanity as a whole?
The government as a whole has a head so big, how they fit it through any doorway is beyond me. This could be reason why they feel the need to blow the doors off somebody’s home before taking the time to knock, and politely ask to come in.
With all sarcasm aside; we cannot go on living life this way any longer. Where is the compassion? I see a lack of value for human life. The government’s answer to conflict is to create more of it. Eye for eye they say. One group hurts another, and what’s the answer? Make them pay, it’s their turn to suffer. And then to justify their means it’s always the same game; Who’s on board? Are you with us or against us? Patriot or traitor?. It’s a simple power play. They push us to take a side, peddling fear like it was our last meal. Eat this or else. Enjoy what we have to offer or suffer the consequences and be labeled a traitor starving alone, on your own.
I say We start asking the questions. Tell Me why we should believe those who have consistently lied to us. Blatantly told us one thing and done another. How can we even begin to trust someone, or a group of someone’s that only use words to empower themselves? We cannot. Now is the Age of Transparency. If these politicians make promises to “We the People”, they should be held accountable. If there promises fall through the deep cracks upon Capitol Hill, then we the majority will have the choice and the power to vote them out. Where honor is a precious commodity, it’s high time we take action and restore justice to a country that was built upon such principles.
Our collective voice has been hushed too long. We do have a voice, and it’s time to be heard is now! Take action. Let the government know we do not agree with their agendas. No longer will we sit quietly and live under a hood of injustice. If the present leaders cannot lead, then we as a whole must find those who can. A leader who is humble enough to be willing to speak and act upon the best intentions of the whole, these are the people we desperately need to guide us into a brighter world.
I am a peaceful person at heart, but do not mistake my nature for that of someone who is willing to have the wool pulled over my eyes. I am awake and my eyes see the discontent within our Nation’s people. In a land built upon freedom and liberty, I look around and see these precious gifts being pulled out from under our very feet. It’s a smoke and mirror show. The government disguises their true intentions within a cloud of lies and deception. They strategically pull at our emotions to engage us to get on board with their questionable politics. All the while their motives are being fueled by efforts to further promote agendas that lie hidden behind closed doors.
For some of us it may seem easier to wear rose colored glasses and say to our self that all is fine and the government has our best interests at hand, but these glasses are no longer serving us. We are falling prey to those who are but a few, compared to the many of us. With so few people pulling the strings that have a power to control so many, we must questions their ethics and moral standings on life. If what we see is creating unease within us, then it is our duty to make a difference. Power is meant to be diverse. It should reflect the highest intentions of the whole. I believe that we absolutely need key advocates to represent that of the greater good. It is those that choose to lead with a humble heart and a fierce courage that will best be able to carry forth the torch of true freedom and liberty.
If we care about our self and the well being of our brothers and sisters in life, then it is you and I that must carry the torch to a brighter future for our self, our children, and our children’s children forever more.
