I know I have talked about this before, but it really bothers me. For some reason, I thought that if we were able to get the president re-elected and as many democrats as possible into the congress, that it would all be over, boy was I wrong. Its really only starting and then I wonder how do we capture those people that are still unsure of what side to believe in? What do we do to keep the people interested and involved, because its going to take a majority of the people to enact the kind of change that is needed.
Someday, like today, when the different sites I go on are particular mean sported and downright ugly commenters I get really sad. I had always know that not all areas of the country were like where I lived, I really never even dreamed that there was this whole sub-culture I call ‘fox news zombies’. These people are unshakeable in their ideas and they have been so brainwashed that even when faced with the truth about fox news, will still claim its really the truth and its only icky people like me that say otherwise, because we are jealous.
Most days I can end my research and travels on the sites I like with some little bit of confidence that enough people will wake up and see that the GOP plan for our country would be disastrous, but today, not so sure.
I guess it all boils down to keeping my energy focused on learning and sharing all I can and hope that somehow a seed will be planted that will encourage someone else to do the same thing and on and on. Maybe that is what is really meant when I refer to ‘we are the new media’. Hopefully, we will be able to keep this movement going forward and do what in the past a movement called the ‘populist movement’ did and reclaim our government before its completely owned by corporate dollar. History has always been a favorite subject to me and it can teach us so much. Just the fact that we have gone down this road before in our history should actually give us all hope, because they succeeded and so can we.
NEVER FORGET THAT WE ARE NOW THE NEW MEDIA AND ITS UP TO ALL OF US THAT HEAR AND SEE TO PASS ON WHAT WE LEARN SO OTHERS CAN SEE AND HEAR
