GET UP OFF OF YOUR ASSES (AND VOTE!)…

In 2008 we voted for Change… and, we would have gotten that change had everyone followed up in 2010,  by voting in the congressional elections…

Do you wonder why the same radical leaders continue to hold their positions of power?  It’s because people do not take voting seriously; while those of us who do vote grow weary at the complacency of Americans who do not vote.

Hello America.  Are you tired of the way our country is being held hostage by corrupt politicians?  Are you tired of corporate money influencing politics?

The American people are being dismissed.  The leaders elected by the majority of the voting public are not doing what is best for the citizens they represent.

Let’s face it; Lobbyists (not the American people) have the most influence in Washington.  Do you want to do something about it?

Then get up off your asses and VOTE!

Americans continuously wonder why things aren’t getting any better-yet, the power to change all of this lies within their own reach: the ballot box…
