Re:“The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference” said by Obama gearing up for campaigning for mid-term elections on his quest to save American democracy.
One thing to be sure about the world today, especially in America, there is no indifference – not from anyone nor any sector.
People from all walks hold strong views about everything.
Protests are more common throughout the land than ever. Social media is lit with power hungry reactionaries, wanting to change your thought process into theirs – again from all walks.
Americans are not standing still – no matter their agendas.
Words used in the past to stir a nation (such as ‘indifference’) are no longer useful.
Obama acts desperate to be president again, like Bill Clinton did. Once you have that power you never want to let it go. So hey, use it in a new, better way, not a way that didn’t work. Nobody is indifferent. Not now.
The biggest threat to democracy is people in authority using fear tactics to tell the populace how to vote. How about we hold those who campaign for an agenda to the same standards we demand of Donald Trump? It looks to me like nobody is playing by their own rules.
Politicians want Trump to solve all the problems they didn’t solve or currently can’t solve. So, they lay all the blame at his doorstep instead of their own. Rather than work with him, to change what they couldn’t or won’t, they attack and resist for the sake of resisting, till they get into office and everybody elected forgets what they promised to do to get that vote. The democrats are playing the same resist and wait till the next elections game that the republicans did.
What’s new and better about that strategy? Nothing. It’s more of the same. That’s why voter turnout is low, and has been for a long time. It’s not because of apathy on the part of the voters, it’s because of slow moving politicians who delay making decisions that will provoke change.
Tactical Abuse is the new strategy to produce that change. Hit them over their heads till they cave to your way is the lazy person’s game plan to change the world. That methodology used to be called the end justifies the means, or ‘whatever it takes’ as long as it gets done is worth the price of life and limb.
Has planet earth been invaded by a silent war organism that strips the brain of all logic and common sense and decency, so it can occupy the minds of humans for the purpose of taking over the planet?
It sure looks, walks and sounds it to me.
Not all democrats are worthy of the office they seek. Not all republicans are worthy of the office they seek. Yet each side pushes all their candidates down your throats till you choke and end up voting for no one.
Everybody knows that no matter who you vote for, not much is going to change, regardless of the party that lands the coveted seats.
Why did Obama promise Israel that he would move the American embassy to Jerusalem? To get the Jew vote he lied.
