Wereflea, I believe many in this country are just Zombies listening to MSM and corrupt political parties that pit one against the other. They have bought into that mentality and they're on cruise control. Their interest in politics is mostly reserved for the few months before the election and then it's back to whatever boring little life they had before.
Sure, there are some of us who helped bring about an earlier end to the Vietnam War than would have if we hadn't put our bodies on the line, but most just read the papers and watched the tube.
Most people our age had careers, worked hard, have retired or are close, and are comfortable off.
Are our spirits fading? Absolutely. Many have fear looking towards the future. I haven't bought into that. I refuse to be fearful of the Orange Meanie s madness. I'm pissed. I'm not young anymore but I'm ready to put my body on the line again.
There will be actions to come my friend, and they will be driven by those with the most to lose if they don't start soon. That would be our Youth, those 18 to 35 with their whole lives to live. I am energized by many things, one of which is the Draft Bernie movement.
It's becoming clearer by the day, that a true representative government for all of us and not just the 1%, will never come from the Democrat or Republican parties. Never.
A new party, a 'People Party' must be formed and soon. And there will be work for everyone to do to prepare to remove the 'cancerous' party that now infects our entire country.
This country will survive the surgical procedures we must perform in order to regain and promote the health and wealth of our nation.
Laws will need to be created that never allows the corrupting influence of 'money' to bring about another Trump.
My wife read me a line from one of Ralph Naders books,'Breaking Through Power', and it went something like this, 'How often do police accidentally shoot and kill Bankers who are committing financial crimes, stealing homes, and plunging the nation into economic instability and recession?'
If we ever trust another Democrat or Republican in the offices of Congress or the White House, we are supporting the continued destruction of our Democracy.
