“If you can’t say anything nice about someone, say nothing at all.”
That’s a tough mother-ism to live by in today’s world.
I do think that silence is a blessing seldom appreciated. In fact, I could say nothing about many things and many people, and I would be the better for it.
But…. also in today’s world, saying nothing allows the more vocal hordes to flood the airwaves with venom and lies.
Democracies aren’t maintained by the silence of its members. It takes willing voices and willing voters to make serious changes in our world.
The next couple months will be a nasty time for impassioned outcries and claims, true or non. I have my own opinions on much of what is occurring politically and in our government, as well as having my own thoughts on how best to change the current problems.
However, none of my opinions matter other than on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018 when we the people have the opportunity to express our beliefs on voting ballots across the nation. THAT is the day for expressing opinion. THAT is the day when what you think really matters.
So you can be as vocal as you wish—or as allowed by laws until that time—but the only time what you think really matters is on November 6th, 2018.
Vote! It can be the single most important thing you can do for yourself, for your loved ones, and for the world in which we live.
VOTE Tuesday, November 6th, 2018!
And if you are really impassioned with your candidates, then get involved in those campaigns and help others understand why those folks most appeal to you.
Those are things that you can do.
When it comes to the President of our country, I honestly can’t think of anything nice to say about him—NOTHING—NADA. So I will actively promote positive changes for the people that I can easily speak well of.
Recognize that this is your chance to make a difference around you—get involved in positive change and work toward a better future for ALL of us—not just for the richest 1 percent, of which I will also say nothing good about, so they shall remain unmentioned.
Stand up—speak out—and organize your friends to make positive changes in our world. These are things that you CAN do.
So just DO IT!
