Politics – Are We Getting What We Deserve?

If we are not willing to do the heavy lifting, we deserve what we get.

How many times have we thought or heard someone else say: “Politics is a dirty and nasty business. I don’t want any part of it.” “I don’t want to put my family through that mess.” “I’m not going to waste my time to vote because one vote doesn’t count or make any difference.” Or, “All politicians are crooks, and I won’t vote for any of them.”

Do we realize that these are the thoughts and attitudes that allow bullies and tyrants to gain power and dominance? If we want to maintain freedom, we have to work and fight for it. If we are not willing to do the heavy lifting, we deserve what we get.

  1. Many of those who are doing the heavy lifting are lifting the wrong things for the wrong reasons. In other words, it seems to me that the “lifting” of many people is in ignorance and makes things worse.
