Okay, so a bitch has noticed an increase in the number of 'this world has gone to shit...fuck it!' comments lately.
As much as I agree that things are beyond fucked up, a bitch just can’t settle on that position and set up camp.
I’m political because politics is personal. I give a shit about policy, candidates and causes because policy, candidates and causes impact me and mine. Thus, a bitch can not afford to holla and throw up both my hands (wink).
And neither can y’all.
Rather than dwell on what isn’t and build a case for what will not be, I hope that we the people can see what could be and build a case for how we can make that shit happen.
A bitch truly believes that there are powers at play that encourage voter apathy and that seek a disinterested electorate so that they won’t have to answer to the masses.
And who the fuck wants to make The Man’s day?
***pause and listen to the sound of crickets getting their grove on***
This bitch recommends that we all explore what matters to us, why it matters and how policy/government plays a role in that shit. Then we need to evaluate local, state and federal candidates based on how their positions match up to that shit.
Ask questions…get involved…challenge staffers and supporters…and be citizen activists.
What matters to you?
Why do you vote?
What do you hope for…
…and what do you fear?
Let’s not get so caught up in the Presidential elections or federal fuck ups that we forget that politics is local and we have a role to play where we stay.
Otherwise, we’re all going to wake up this time next year to the sound of The Man getting his party on…again.
