Today, as the weekend was drawing to an end, I was musing on the Peoples strong desire for change. Not for the mere folly of change but change as significant as that of an inspired revolution. A groundswell of women rising to make sure democracy is served.
President Abraham Lincoln once said, “The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.”
This is our occassion. This is our time to send our vote to all politicians, not just the White House. We will not go quietly into the night. We will not put our constitution to a frivolous test. Instead we will honor democracy with the power of voice in the purchases we make. We do not need an election day to exercise our vote. We the People of the United States of America choose to stand up and be counted.
Thank you to those who have written us via email and commented here. It is time for the PEOPLE of AMERICA to take America back from the Media Machine. Do you watch CNN and find yourself shaking your head as THEY accuse the media of being unbiased? What is CNN but not one of the long tentacles of the media? The next few days we will weigh in on the equality for all campaigns — democratic, republican, and independent. Let’s do our own fact checks. I am tired of not being taken seriously as a voting force. Women have EARNED the right to vote, to hold high office and be the backbone of America by our blood and the blood of the children we have sacrificed in war.
We won the right to vote. Why do we often choose to not cast it? If you have not registered to vote, please do so today. Click here to find a non-partisan list of places you can register to vote. Some states stop allowing registration on October 4th. Won’t you take 10 minutes today and register? This is our occasion. Cast your vote not only at the polls but with your shopping dollars. This week we will be adding a money saving column to our website. We feel the crunch every day of a weakening dollar.
