We, the voters, must enact positive change


It is an accepted fact that effective people in positions of power know the art of when to lead, when to follow and when to just get out of the way.

Take a quick look at Washington. They can’t lead, and they refuse to follow.

Just one thing left to do. And if they’re not smart enough to get out of the way for now, we should be smart enough to ensure at the next election that they be kept out of the way for good. It has been said that people get the government they deserve.

We certainly deserve better, but only we can exercise that power and force that change. Between now and the next election, flood your senator’s and representative’s office with a clear message of your disgust.

Are you really still willing to just settle for this ongoing embarrassment? If you are not willing to be part of the change, who do you expect to do it for you?
