During the elections, for many years now, we have all relied on our media coverage to keep us up to date with the"who is running" and the "what they stand for". They have decided how much time was to be dedicated to which candidate. The media has given huge platforms to faces and names that have become some of the most powerful people in America, and in the world.
We have sat and watched each person in awe, wondering in day dream on how they will lead. Each one of us fixated on only that which we have been told by the News stations that tell us whatever it is they wish for us to know. Much like Bush and Obama, we have no more attachment to those running than what little we see on the late night news stations of our choosing. Although the field is crowed with many capable candidates, we only see and hear from a few. With little to no recollection of any of the others who may be running for the very same position.
We all complain about how the elections are "rigged" or how we are "tired of the same old thing", or my personal favorite, "their is no reason to vote, they are all the same any ways". Well, how about we begin by taking a new approach to the whole shebang. It is time for everyone to get out and make their vote count, this would throw more than just a wrench in the plans of "those mysterious guys behind the curtains". The "they, them, those people", everyone is so eager to blame everything on.
Next, all you as the "FREE Citizen of America" has to do is, look up each and every candidate that wants to run. Take five to ten minutes and read up on each person that seems to be of interests to you (whether it be because of party affiliation or more personal reasons). Each person has the right to find a personal attachment to a candidate but you should really know more about the individual you are going to put in charge of protecting you, your family, your jobs and your country. Emotions can cloud ones judgement.
I would also prefer for each person who is going to the polls to consider another thing, leave behind any feeling of pride or attachment towards a label. For instance, Democrat, Republican or whatever it may be or how ever you may choose to swing. The label thing is broken. The ideals that we are to believe that a said party carries, has not been so for many years now. I could get more indepth on this, however your attention span and mine are much to short to carry this on here.
We finally should take the next step and get out there for the individual that we find, on our own and show them support by sharing who they are and why they are right for us. After all, if the media is only going to share who they want, how else will everyone else hear about your candidate? How are we going to get something different by the same old election process if we do not get involved?
Do your part and change this country for the better. You have been shown that the media obviously has an agenda. Whether you are a skeptic, a conspiracy theorist, or just another concerned American... Get out there and do the right thing. After all, it is your duty.
