It's up to the people, not the politicians, to save America.

As CNN reports in the link I posted below, the 2016 Election is breaking all the rules.

So what's changed? Why? People are angry and tired---of the lies, the blame, the politics, the corruption, and the bullshit. Well, that's nothing new but it's really much worse than I've ever seen it. In my adult life, I have never known so many people who have no idea who they will vote for and this comes from people from all parties. Many can't, in good conscience, vote for anyone in their own party nor anyone in the other parties. 

In my opinion, if there was ever an election where the vote will be more about the lesser of two evils than who is best qualified for the job, this is the one. We're all at fault for this mess. So, how are we going to fix it? For one, stop putting faith in politicians to fix things. We the people...all of us...need to get off our asses and do our part. A good start would be taking better care of ourselves and our families; and reaching out to people in our communities and helping them. It starts with people!!!!

So many things we rely on government to do, we can do ourselves and we'd be much better at it. We have the power, we don't need a law to tell us what's right and wrong, we already know it. So let's just do it!

It's about helping ourselves and helping each other. 

This isn't a Democrat THING or a Republican THING, this is a Human THING. Do you realize how much better this nation would be if we just took the time to do our share? To empower ourselves and help others so they can be empowered too?

Human beings are so amazing--they are resilient, strong, determined and they are survivors. And it's amazing what they can accomplish when they work together. I truly believe that "no man is an island" and that in order to achieve greatness, we have to work together, ALL of us, without exclusion. Sure, we'll have differences, we're human beings---we're rational, we have minds of our own, we have free will...and that's how it should be. But having differences doesn't mean we can't find common ground. Yes, there will always be people who refuse to compromise but let's not let it get in the way. We have to keep trying. If we stop trying, if we give up....we don't even deserve this nation.

It's up to the people, not the politicians, to save America. Yes, we can do better. We have to.
