We’re mad as Hell…!

Wall Street controls Congress and runs this country.  Main Street suffers because Congress is dysfunctional.  Too many elected officials have their hands in the pockets of corporate America.  Our government is broken, and this threatens our democracy.

Actions taken by both parties have been self-serving and detrimental to Main Street goals and aspirations. The Republicans’ abuse of the filibuster, blocking all of President Obama’s agenda, and the Democrats’ inability to come together to beat the Republicans at their own game, is not only ludicrous, it’s frightening.  But the real downer is whenever our nation needs real social change, it seems the Republicans are the ones who block our progress and prevent us from moving forward.

Meanwhile, President Obama has some choices:  govern by executive order, make more recess appointments, hold more press conferences, and address the nation not only on the progress of our economy, jobs, and health care, but on the greater crisis of values.  Our national security is at stake.  At every opportunity, Obama needs to explain to the American public that we’re in a crisis mode and spell out the reasons why.  He needs to rally the support of the American people.  The Silent Majority must wake up and help the President.  We must find our Voice and restore our democracy.  We, the people must take back our government by getting involved.  This is a responsibility of citizenship.  We must participate by writing and calling our elected officials—shouting “we’re mad as Hell and not going to take it anymore”—then march on Washington and demand changes in the status quo and more immediate solutions to major problems that can’t wait any longer. 

The strongest voice in Washington must be that of the People!  Let’s get to work and get the job done.  Call, write, tweet, and march!  Call, write, tweet, and march!  Call, write, tweet, and march!
