Real Change, Do we Have The Will?

This sign without a doubt signals the current mood of the country. The people are angry, mad as hell to be more precise.

Career politicians who have held office for many years are electing to retire. Recognizing times are a changing, and fearful of loss at the polls, they know their useful days are behind them.

What an incredibly great thing for the nation. A significant part of our national problem is the corrupt and unethical congressional  politicians and leadership on both sides of the political divide. Replacing these retiring pols can only strengthen our country.

Yet the change must run deeper than just replacement of a few retiring lawmakers. The national electorate needs to retire lawmakers en mass and replace them with honest and independent thinkers. Men and women who are not owned by the political machinery and special interests. Individuals that place principal and ethics above political expediency.

And perhaps most important is that each and every one of us stop looking at our representative and senators as though they are not part of the problem. They are probably as guilty as the representatives and senators from other congressional districts and states.

Change is not easily accepted as staying in ones comfort zone and sticking with a known quantity is always easier than taking that risk. However, it is time to take the risk and put a new congress, and President on notice we do in fact mean business.

The mood of the country is right. The time for real change is now. The remaining question is, do We The People have the will to force such change?

Read the article on the Anti Incumbent Mood here , and then take real action to effect real change.

  1. We need you, Rational Nation, for all these reasons. I hope you will reconsider, and I promise to do my part to make it work. Cheers, my friend.

  2. Octo - Thanks for for your kind words. A forum with your and others that share a desire for real, workable change, such as Pamela would be a great bi-partisan endeavor.

    On this I wish you all the luck in the world. Unfortunately, reconsidering is OUT of the realm of possibility.

    My principals will simply not allow me to share the same forum with... well lets just leave it at a certain collective posturing as an individual.

    Again thank you.

  3. hey,,just noticed, your link is updating now. seems funny not having you at the bottom of the list anymore. welcome to the web amigo. lol

  4. Griper - I changed it this morning with a little help from the good people at Link Within.

    They responded to my e-mail on my widget not working and as soon as I did what they told me to do the up dares started working.

    I'll shoot you an e-mail explaining it.
