“Evil prevails when good men do nothing.” As I see it apathy and passivity are not the sustainers of liberty, because “freedom is not free.” Freedom needs to be maintained and protected.
This last presidential election saw many voters sitting on their hands and not getting involved.
I was given a lot of reasons and excuses for their lack of involvement, here are a few I heard:
“I felt that there were no good choices and that all I would be doing is voting for a lesser of two evils.”
“The government is so corrupted and the system so screwed up that I don’t trust it anymore.”
“My vote is meaningless.”
“I don’t have a good feeling on way or the other, plus it is so confusing anyway.”
I don’t think people are uninterested in their own futures.
I think many just feel limited and pressed in their choices and ultimately boxed in because of that lack.
Don’t give up! Become a voice for change.
I think that it is unconscionable for the government to have so many people dependent upon it while simultaneously rushing toward financial collapse.
We need to demand fiscal sanity and prioritize!
What we need to do is keep the system from collapsing!
I believe that people would sacrifice a little if it meant future security.
Unfortunately, the biggest loss is the loss of trust, all good relationships rely on trust.
We need to find some new blood that we can trust, a true statesman.
They are among us. Find them and support them.
Help them get their message out.
Get off your hands, let’s take this country back!
