I am so totally in love! I want to spend the rest of my life with a certain special somebody. I am 100% sure. I met her almost 2 years ago and we have been dating on and off since then. She is amazing and makes my world go from one day to the next. We are great together and want to share our lives with one another and live life and discover adventures together. We want to do it all, good and bad together and we know that we can help each other out through the tough times. We compliment each other’s qualities and in short we are an amazing pair. We are a super-couple. She is the girl!

Why Do You Litter?

Okay, okay, I know YOU don’t litter, of course not, but somebody does… I’m not accusing anybody of littering here. Instead, let me ask: Why do people in general litter?

Littering is common everywhere, but why does it happen? It must be that people who litter just don’t care.   That’s the only conclusion that I can come to.

What Has Happened To Democracy?

Posted on June 8, 2008. Filed under: Misc | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The current state of democracy is an abomination of what democracy means, what it is all about. It is more an elected autocracy where a king or queen is elected for a term to make all the decisions. The government is supposed to serve the people, not the people serving the government. The government cannot exist without the people, period. But it is possible for the people to exist without the government. Think about that.


What Democracy is About:

Democracy isn’t about laying on your couch and getting up to vote every 4 years. Democracy is about citizens’ involvement and autonomy. It is about activism, getting involved at the local, grassroots level. Democracy is about citizens taking an active role in the country, even though manning the couch is easier.


Change:

Governments are bureaucratic. They are not effecient and they are not effective. They spend a lot of resources and don’t get much done. You cannot rely on the government to solve problems or bring change. Change happens on the local level with regular people.

It doesn’t matter who the president is
; what matters is what the people do. People taking action about things they are passionate about is far more effective than any government or president could be.

It is up to the people, you and I, to make the changes we want, not simply vote for whoever promises to bring the change. The people do have a say, but nobody will hear you unless you voice it. Join or start groups and organizations that get involved to take control and make the changes they want.


Get involved:


Take action on matters that you strongly believe in.
Don’t expect or assume that the government will make the change for you; it won’t.
