So I was on facebook this morning and I shared this picture.
An apparently well intentioned member of the democratic party posted the following comment:
“Better STOP hating and start being POSITIVE. Saying that neither the Demo nor the GOP can do anything for you, you are setting yourself to FAIL!!! Starting over from scratch is a lot harder than working from within!!!!”
“David, I appreciate your comments. But I have heard them many times before in the 66 years of my existence. Wisdom instructs that working within the system for change has not worked.
Continually voting for the lesser of two evils will always result in more evil.You may not appreciate this until you have observed the growth of evil over the course of a lifetime.
I am now convinced we, the people, must with a devout and spiritual intention take back the reins of sovereignty from a system which exercises it only to benefit the 1%. We must weed both the Republican and Democratic parties from the garden of government so that we can nourish leaders who share goals of the people; not the goals of an out of hand empire which already has 6 1/2 times the military might of the rest rest of the world combined and still wants to spend virtually all of the people’s money on building a bigger and better war machine (rather than feeding and educating its people).
David, my motivation is not hate (although I do feel anger and sadness about the two party corruption of America). My motivation is meaningful change. We need to take our country back from the empire which has captured it. Doing so mandates that we act with love, not hate, in weeding out what does not work and is not in the best interests of the people.”
After I wrote and posted this comment, I talked about it with several people. We concluded that it is self evident the spiritual evolution of humanity mandates that we forsake the materialism and corruption evidenced by both the Republican and Democratic parties. Evil cannot be made into good. Therefore, it is with both a spiritual purpose and religious intent that the people should take back their nation from the evil forces which have made it an empire.
Historical precedent supports our movement.
