Hell yeah it sucks, and it's yet another product of Wall St. greed.

Our gov't IS BOUGHT.


Folks keep sayin' we gotta save democracy, but that ain't true.
We don't have a democracy anymore.

ProTip folks: you live in an oligarchy. Our gov't hasn't worked correctly for decades.

If it did, we wouldn't be here right now.


Because it's BOUGHT.
And why?

Because we DON'T VOTE.

I ain't bringin' receipts for this one, you know the truth.


Sure you and your family might, but all of us are adding up to about 40%.

In a fucking DEMOCRACY.😡
And frankly, (bubble burst comin' so be ready) this Twittersphere just ain't enough people.

You gotta take your voice OUTSIDE this place too.

Muster up the courage to talk to strangers, and kindly.

Let your guard down.


We LIKE each other remember?
And kindly tell people what's wrong.

Start easy, "Man these roads. Wy can't they get them fixed?"

YOU know why, so tell 'em, and use NAMES, not parties.

Folks vote for PEOPLE.

Remember that.

All politics IS local. Folks know what they SEE, not some esoteric DC stuff.
Or conversely, if the roads are being fixed in your neck of the woods, you might say, "I sure am glad these roads are finally getting fixed. Thanks Obama."


His stimulus plan made that happen. Folks should know that.

And tell them KINDLY, they prolly don't know.
Know one of the biggest lies perpetrated on us nowadays?

"Don't talk religion and politics."


WE are the government, the PEOPLE.

If we don't talk religion and politics then we're not doing our duty as citizens.
ESPECIALLY if you live in a red state.

This nation used to have tiny democracies EVERYWHERE, even in church organizations.

Americans voted on EVERYTHING, from what a union might do, to how to run a Sunday school schedule.
But we stopped. We got happy, lazy, and demanding.

So we ignored the continued injustices perpetrated against us by those who've USED us.

For money.

Now they're cool with burnin' up the only rock we live on.

It's NEVER too early to tell folks to vote, or to share something you've learned.


The opposite of what our adversaries want.

Tell everyone to vote, even casually.

Be comfortable in the knowledge that there ARE MORE GOOD PEOPLE than hateful ones.
Our strength IS our democracy.

There ARE more well meaning folks than hateful ones, you just gotta get them passionate about democracy again.


Rekindle patriotism, and we'll take our democracy BACK from Wall St.

It's #DemocracyYo. 🇺🇸

My friend inspired this rant with her FAR better words:
