CHANGE (Who Cares?)

leave a comment »

As they say “..those that can’t remember history are doomed to repeat it.”

That’s a good warning for third-world nations and developing democracies.

New democracies tend only to survive for a limited period anyway.

But what difference does that change make…

Who cares if democracy thrives – somewhere, around the world ?

Who cares if citizens overlook history only to repeat it to their own demise?

Who cares if their statesmen succumb to merely personal gain and politics?

Who cares if politicians use political correctness to spin truth, gain status?

Who cares if leaders take their country into shambles and citizens into panic?

Who cares if in panic, citizens cast their fate into the hands of those traitors?

Who cares if that happens in developing democracies or third-world nations?

Certainly not those in developed countries, who don’t recognize it – at home.

Certainly not those who aren’t clear on what has ‘changed’, or still might!

CHANGE doesn’t have to be beneficial – but benefits can come from REFORM.

– –

The answer to the current financial crisis – or any other local or global crisis is ‘transparency’. That starts with the press and culminates in legislation. Even within the process of legislation, those who are elected may mis-represent the voters.

In DEMOCRACY – it’s your vote that counts,
in Feudalism – it’s your Count that VOTES.

Until and unless each facet of every vote they cast is actually “counted” (line-item voting), they can not be easily held ‘accountable’ (for ‘packaged’ rubbish). That’s why how ‘we’ vote and then how ‘they vote for us’ COUNTS.

And dare we complain or express our dissent?

Do we even get a voice in our own destiny?

Whether we can maintain freedom of the press will influence whether we maintain free democracy. If either is ‘crooked’, one cannot express any opposition since that can be seen as ‘abusive, obscene, threatening, libelous or defamatory’ and castigated or denied by those so ‘offended’. At first it is just ‘politically incorrect’ then Unpopular, then TYRANNY when everyone else (including the press) has been ‘won over’ to ‘one side‘.

So it is vitally important that when you get that

most precious opportunity to vote, remember:

o It is not whether you vote with the majority that may really count
o You might be voting for or with the ‘majority of folks who are wrong…’
or those whose intentions are purely selfish and might entice you to
…democratically vote away your rights to have a democracy.

Without democracy – even your voice will be silenced…
– first by political ‘popularity’

– then by the pressure of the ‘press’

– then by the power of THEIR ‘governance’ !

In some cases that may already be true…

=============

How can we establish and maintain individual freedom – ASK for it

Where can we go to find existing solutions or create new ones – ASK for it

It’s not that difficult – isn’t it about time to:

Question Prior Answers – it’s Liberating!

Answer Current Questions – it’s Empowering!

Create Future Solutions – it’s Fulfilling!

Share these Benefits – it’s SUSTAINABLE!

What’s about YOU? – care to comment?

We need it real bad and real quick!..

…and we nearly got both of those – together in the 2008 bailout ‘package’.

Among other causes, the record confirms that well-intentioned individuals acted in concert to create or permit (and in many cases also personally benefit) from results that now suggest the need for other (and greater) ‘panic’. In some cases, those perpetrators may now (what, again?) be acting in concert or perhaps in a covert manner.

The KEY questions remain – as to what type response is actually needed NOW – and then what type punishment (if any) may be needed TOMORROW – for the original AND current perpetrators.

PANIC is the culmination of well-intentioned individuals gaining the emotional momentum to act together to create results that re-create the perceived need for other ‘urgent’ or panicked reactions, etc.

LEADERSHIP is the clarity of purpose and management of thought to create viable solutions and take well-reasoned action on behalf of EVERYONE.

Leadership looks like introspection and research – while panic looks more like a ‘war dance’ – loud, active, energizing, and entirely inconclusive.

None of the noise, warpaint, or feathers are impressive if there is still an imminent risk or shortage of some kind.

Here’s a little ‘tribal knowledge’ from back inside the ‘Tee Pee’:

– our scalps are at risk and we have no weapons

– our tribal loyalty will only last if we are well defended

So, here’s some Sharman ‘insight’ that just might work:

– listen to the scouts who know where the enemy ‘lies’

– look under the war-paint and see if each warrior is ‘trustworthy’

– make sure everyone lines up so they don’t wound each other

or worse yet – hurt US (again?).

War-paint on a two-faced traitor might be even worse…than lipstick on a pig…

Right – Kemo Sabe?

The answer to this financial crisis might not have to cost us our favorite beads – or require that we sell off our Manhattan island holdings (so to speak)…- at least according to Dave Ramsey.

And finally (speaking of ‘pork’) – CONSIDER THIS:

What would happen if Congress had to actually vote on each LINE ITEM ..instead of being allowed to insert bundled “pork” into every piece of legislation and then avoid any true ACCOUNTABILITY to us?

What if your grocer REQUIRED that you purchase a few “bad eggs” in each dozen…like Congress keeps doing with our legislation ‘packages‘…?

Aren’t we ENTITLED to know…who truly defends ALL OUR INTERESTS..

instead of secretly serving only their ‘political party’..?

NOTE: for “PC” and more honorable purposes – my apologies to any real patriots, tribes, Sharmans, warriors, or swine).

============

How can we identify and then utilize common sense – ASK for it

Where can we go to find existing solutions or create new ones – ASK for it

It’s not that difficult – isn’t it about time to:

Question Prior Answers – it’s Liberating!

Answer Current Questions – it’s Empowering!

Create Future Solutions – it’s Fulfilling!
