As you know by now, I have been spending my days in the cold, rain and snow trying to collect enough signatures to get on the ballot in November for Congress. In case you don't know, the system is tilted towards the 2 Parties and away from the average individual who believes Democracy should include all persons who wish to try and make a difference in the world and don't fit in the 2 party system. Although my beliefs are more towards the left, it does not mean that I can't make decisions based on reality and common sense.
I believe that we can find a better system for healthcare!
I believe that we can find a more fair system of taxation!
I believe that we are killing our planet, through pollution and exploitation of our resources, fueled by greed!
I believe that we can find a better way of caring for the elderly, the marginalized, the poor, the hungry! Actually I feel that we must!
I believe that our infrastructure is crumbling, to the point of utter failure. Our roads are shot, our bridges are rusting away, our sewer systems and water systems are failing, and there is no money to repair all these problems because our politicians keep giving it all to the wealthy, who don't need it! Who continue to roll back regulations that would protect us so they can make more money that they don't need! And tax us more, because we have no one in our interest that has the money to influence Congresspeople. I'm willing to bet that you can't find a road in New England that doesn't have potholes or cracks in it!
How much longer, America, before you stop thinking of just yourselves and think of others?
You don't see that your lack of interest is not only killing others, but may soon come for you. You are not the only persons on this blue marble. We are in this together and what you do affects many others, every day!
We must change the way we look at the world as a whole, not just our little portion of it!
I am but one voice, but I know there are millions of you that feel the same as me, Speak up, scream at the top of your lungs that this is not right, the way we are going!
WE MUST CHANGE!
