The current political realm is a messy and disgusting web of manipulation. Whether how we got here was the intent of any of our past leaders is not certain. What is certain is that we are on a dark path. The wealthy have lined the pockets of our leaders. Our leaders listen to the voice of the highest bidder. The voice of the majority, your voice, is ignored. Even our elections are compromised with a flawed system that is statistically proven to always end in a two party system.
We are deadlocked and powerless to change our government unless we break the grip big money has on our leaders. We must regain our say in how we are governed or forget any notion of democracy we’ve come to expect.
Inform your friends and family that voting out those who give up their voice to big money is the only way to save our country. This will not be enough though. I have an idea that could level the playing field for the few honest politicians out there. A symbol that politicians who refuse big money can point to. A symbol the voter can use to discern politicians who are much more likely to listen to more than their pocket-books.

Revolution is what happens when a government ceases to listen to its citizens. It is the government who should obey the people, not the other way around. They’ve curbed this in the past by controlling information, lying to us. The internet age has finally shown people the truth, allowed them to see what the majority believes (and that it is not what our governments are doing). We finally have the power to hold government accountable.
Let’s be real Americans, just like our founding fathers- standing up for our rights and demanding this country be run by us, and not lobbyists and politicians.
(here I’ve used the term “American” to mean U.S. American, but if you are in any other country odds are your situation is similar, and the U.S. founding fathers are a great example to follow)
At my last staff meeting, this happened:
G: “When I was in Korea I used to think that they smelled, and eventually I just got used to it. Then I learned that it was all the garlic they used in their meals.”
J: “They probably don’t have any vampires there then.”
T: “Wait, vampires aren’t real are they?”
(a few minutes pass)
T: “Ok, I have another questio—”
Me: “-no, werewolves aren’t real either.”
