• OP ED: Stop looking for the US government to fix … anything. YOU are the government.

    WASHINGTON, DC (Herald de Paris) — ¬†Sorry to burst the bubble of a lot of wild-eyed media publishers hell-bent on sensationalism (And CNN), but there is no, “Transition of power,” in this country. There is no, “Rise to power,” in this country. ¬†If you think there is, you are wrong. ¬†You have been hoodwinked. ¬†The American government is a government BY THE PEOPLE. These politicians work for us, not the other way around.

    I, for one, am sick of all this apathy – I have seen it in local government, and I have seen it in federal government – the power resides with the people. As long as we demand that the officials we elected uphold our Constitution, no power is transferred. The DNC and the GOP want us all to think they control our government. Why? Because they don’t want you to remember that WE control our government. Not them.

    Perhaps you now see why it is so important for EVERY American to vote.

    Ergo, you can’t rally AGAINST the government. You can’t look to the government to solve … anything. ¬†WE are the government. ¬†YOU are the government. ¬†The elected and appointed officials merely represent us. I think most people have forgotten this.

    We have not had a transition of power in this country in 241 years.  This makes us unique in the known history of our species.  This year is no different.

    Stop waiting for the Congress or the Supreme Court or the President to do whatever it is you want them to do; what you hope they do, whatever it is. ¬†You elected these people. ¬†If you don’t like how they represent you, have them recalled. ¬†Repeal them. ¬†In a government by the people and for the people, you – the people – are the government.

    Don’t waste another second¬†waiting for “The Government” to do¬†… anything, really. ¬†YOU are the government.

    You see, it’s you. ¬†It’s always been you.
