I am looking, as a registered Independent, at both sides of the political system. A system ruled by the few or by a full representation. What does America need or want? How would you choose? Therefore we need to make a decision on how we are governed. Who or what do we want to be?
Do we want to be a nation all inclusive or a nation ruled by the few? This is irrespective of which party you belong to and is in charge but how we are governed. By Autocracy or democracy?
Do we want just a hand full of leaders telling us how we are to be governed and who is part of the ruling class? Or for us to be represented by a full house and senate reflecting our wishes? Hundreds of representatives acting on behalf of our state and local interests.
So if you are intending to vote in future elections it is your responsibility as a voter to determine which political philosophy bets represents your ideal of America. A country ruled by just a few individuals or by total representation from each district. Forget Republican or Democrats. Vote what you think is best for America, your neighbors, and yourself. As for me, I am voting for a full democracy. I certainly want to be part of the decision making. Don’t want any one or two small groups telling me how to live my life and without my input. Plus the more we include diversity the more competitive, stronger, and more capable America will be.
Think of it this way: Could you imagine sitting down to a meal everyday just with meatloaf and potatoes? A meal without the benefit of Mexican food, Chinese food, Italian, German, French, or a good Ruben or Cuban sandwich? Will it be pizza or just potato chips every day? How dull it would be with the same thing day after day. Diversity is key and the answer.
Democracy is where we began as a nation and Democracy is where we need to be now. God bless America and the rest of the world.
