Are we a country whose democracy is active, or are we at a point where our democracy is approaching a state of inaction?

Silent Majority

Speak up!

“The Silent Majority is a phrase used by Homer to describe the dead”

“The silent majority are not silent. Their voices of apathy are louder than the courage of their convictions.” Samuel Koranteng Pipim

We are busy.

Busy

Rushing where?

The truth is incontrovertible,
malice may attack it,
ignorance may deride it,
but in the end; there it is.
Winston Churchill

Work. Home. Kids. Parents. TV. Games. Social Events.
I wish there would be a mandatory time-out – one hour every day for all the adults.
No TV. No work. No driving. – just stop, think.
What is it all about?
What are you doing in life?
What is really important?
What would you really like to do with your life?
Think about the future, the present, the past.
Where are we going as a Nation? As Humanity?
Stop pretending that everything around you will be just fine. The world around us is always in motion, always changing. Regardless whether we admit it or not.
What is really important?
What do we need to do to make it a better world for us and our children?
We need to understand that if we stay busy with our daily little routine the world is still changing and one day you will face the changed world that may not be friendly to you.
People sometimes remind me of the ant's colony – every ant is very busy doing what it has been doing for the whole life, no ant has time to look up to see the coming tsunami.
My dear Ants.
We are at the cross roads of history. The silent busy majority please look up, the tsunami is coming.
It may not be too late. Please find time to act.
If you are disappointed in Democrats – fine, please vote not for but against:
Against the hate, intolerance and bigotry.
Against stupidity, grid, homophobia and xenophobia.
Against mediocrity and incompetence.
Against complacency and inaction.
Vote against plutocracy.
Vote against the global grid of corporations
Against demagogues who incite mass hysteria.
Please find time to build the future for your kids.
The future is not cast in stone, the future is to be built by you.
