Listen up, all who complain...kvetch...point fingers..etc...

by Jim McKinney

Saw a post a friend had on FB...once again complaining about the Obama administration...pointing fingers...all but accusing the current administration of blasphemy and leading us down the toilet...I am not here to defend or refute the claims made there...what I am going to say will anger some...rile others...but maybe...just maybe...my comments might also prompt someone to action...at least I hope so...

Here it is...for all who have taken Obama and Co. to task for all they have done to apparently destroy this country...my throwdown to you is simple...THEN CHANGE THINGS. Tell your representatives that you will be holding them accountable for everything they do...that they need to remember they work for us...that your party...whatever it might be...needs to straighten up and fly right...stop saying and doing stupid things...

Choose candidates who are electable...help them get that way by insuring they have positions and beliefs that will stand the test of time...yet be flexible enough to allow give-and-take with those who do not agree...get out and campaign for them...make sure voters know the whole story...hold candidates' feet to the fire to make sure they can handle the pressure...and do everything LEGAL you can to elect your candidate...as it was said in "Remember The Titans"...LEAVE NO DOUBT...

If you win...then use the victory to make sure the law is followed...WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT...make sure EVERYTHING you and your elected officials do is the right thing for America...and remember that working together and compromise are not dirty words...they are the key to making sure America stays on track...if you lose...then urge those of your belief system to exercise that compromise and working together thing...and don't point fingers that you were robbed...if you did the above...then democracy worked...and you just didn't win this time...but under no circumstances should we ever have the finger pointing and name calling we have now...from either side...time for a change...whatever that might be...
