so, now we are in a pickle. with every wave of ‘new’ corruption scandals from our leaders,and every indication that our infrastructure is crumbling, and every bit of evidence that we have sold our souls to the chinese for cheap dollar store stuff, we become more and more like deer caught in headlights. we are out of our comfort zone. we don’t make decisions- we pop pills to be happy all of the time. come on now. we cannot sit and pretend that all is well and that things will right themselves. what we need is true leadership. where that is to be found- i have no answer. but, we can be leaders in our own lives. take some personal responsibility. it’s a start. we are not going to be able to save the world- the corruption runs too deep, but we can take back our homes, our lives and our communities and make a stand there. it’s possible, but it has to come from us. we have seen that electing the same people over and over again has cost us our country. let’s think outside the box and effect some real change. let’s be the citizen leaders that the forefathers had in mind. our democracy is in our hands.
