Chained by Choice

When we exercise our right to vote, we retain the power of our voice through their legislative actions. This is why we must vet those we choose to represent us determining their intentions.

We as people have allowed these things to transpire by not using the power of voting our constitution grants us. Rather, we point out others’ incompetence instead of looking at our own. Chained by debt we did nothing to accrue, shackled to moral and social injustices, held against our will through beatings and killings. Many say this is the current climate in our country. But we are chained by choice.

We have allowed ourselves to be herded like cattle, called from our pins. Black voter, Latino voter, White working or White suburban voter, only to be milked for our vote and sent back into our stalls until we’re needed again.

The power of the people is best used in the process of voting, for all those that hold true the beliefs of our United States Constitution.

To remove the old oligarchical beliefs that oppress the people with unjust laws and ordinances, through beatings, shootings, or calling it what it is, ethnic cleansing of those not from Anglo descent, as a means of silencing the voice of the people.

We are a republic under a representative democracy, having representatives that legislate on our behalf. When we exercise our right to vote, we retain the power of our voice through their legislative actions.

This is why we must vet those we choose to represent us determining their intentions. This process is going to require an intentional effort to make the necessary changes in our democracy by eliminating the nuisance of inconvenience. We must be bold in your approach to make a difference.

Being chained by choice is not the answer, because of its inconvenience.

Don’t let being lackadaisical validate the wrongs that have been thrust upon us. Keep in mind that knowledge is power. Know what they are doing and go vote. Be Great, and make it happen.

Let us know what you think.
