Change We Can Believe In

Many people maintain the assumption that Americans are complacent and stupid. Seeing the crazy things that happen in this country on a daily basis, it is hard to argue with that sometimes. But Americans know when they are being threatened and know when they are being lied to. They abhor hypocracy (usually) unless they are in love with the hypocrite. Once committed to an idea or an ideal they are frequently unmoved by fact or reality. But all notions, ideals and belief systems have tipping points. All of them. Actions have consequences but so do inactions. It is time we put honor and dignity back in our lives, hold each other accountable and educate ourselves to the sometimes bitter truths of common sense and a plain talk. Cheers

  1. I do not know if it is bad blog ju ju to comment on your own post but an other thought occurs to me. We all make our own reality. Each of us is unique in our perspective and understanding. When we all, more or less, share the same reality you have a religion, a political movement or a nation.
