The Power of the People

A few days ago I cancelled my social media accounts with the big three. I was a moderate user who would scroll through the feed, post vacation pictures, and occasionally recount a funny story. The minute I did it I felt an immense wave of relief. It was an unexpected surprise. I thought I would immediately regret the loss of contact with friends from near and far that I don’t have frequent contact with via text or phone. I didn’t.

In recent years, the social media giants and main stream media have developed a god complex. They have decided that they have control over who says what and when, and clearly favor their personal opinions. Sound familiar? I’ve lived in a communist country. This is eerily familiar to those years. We cannot head down that road.

Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms. These are all rights that certain people in power are trying to take from us. They are trying to bully us into submission. We, however, still have the ability to have our voices heard. Whether that is actually speaking, or through action. As we all know, sometimes actions are larger than words. How does that feel Fox News? How is that trip down the rabbit hole working out for you?

In this time of turmoil we have learned that some do not have any qualms with lying, cheating, and stealing. Openly and blatantly. Unfortunately for them, not very intelligently. It will all come to light. Regardless of who our next president is they have shown their hand, and in the long run they will suffer from their mistakes.

Those of us who believe in our constitution. Who do not believe in changing our constitution. Who believe in the principles our country was founded on. The time is now. We have the power.

The power of the people.
