Let ’em Hear It!

ShoutThe United States’ mainstream media is unequivocally biased and steered by ideological intent.

NEWS USED AGAINST YOU

The major U.S. broadcasting networks composed of ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, and MSNBC are driven by majority share holder’s agendas. The daily news disseminated through these networks is nothing more than carefully engineered proselytized rhetoric meant to persuade viewer’s political opinions towards positions that benefit majority shareholders. Most would define this as propaganda. In actuality, it’s a more ominous and maniacal form of capitalistic social engineering.

MORE ACTION, LESS CONSUMPTION

The time to begin the dialogue is now! We, the American citizen, must dive into our rights of free expression and start by asking the most basic of questions: “How are we doing as a society,” “Is the United States headed in the right direction,” and “Are future generations going to be better or worse off?”

If you, the reader, are not asking your friends, family, and co-workers these basic barometric questions, you’re failing as a citizen. The myriad of excuses such as disliking politics, having adversity to confrontation, afraid of being stereotyped, or not wanting to be the cause of dividing friends or family are grossly unacceptable when considering the serious state of nationalistic decay within the U.S.

APATHETIC ALTERNATIVES

What about the alternative of keeping quiet through the daily practice of repetitive ritualistic restraint? This action is akin to dying slowly at the hand of a terminal disease and is the path of the coward. Elaboration of this point is needed in order to understand the cancerous carnage it quietly inflicts within all Republic societies.

More than fifty percent of Americans struggle daily to make fiscal ends meet within their household. This vicious cycle of daily survival leaves little emotional capital to spend on such things as supporting new bills in Congress, protesting unjust laws such as the NDAA, start grassroots campaigns, or work to elect a local official to Congress. Unfortunately, as the poverty level expands within the United States, the loss of liberty grows in lockstep. Many politicians take advantage of growing poverty and diminishing liberty by grasping more power through Trojan horse style pieces of legislation, a.k.a bills.

SIMPLE SOLUTIONS

To begin righting the wrongs put upon the people by greedy, two-faced, back stabbing politicians is to simply create conversations with other citizens about political subject matter near and dear to you. No longer is it up to the U.S. Congress, the President of the United States, governors, mayors, or city council members to solve the very serious problems plaguing our communities, states, and nation. Instead, it is the duty of the citizenry to inform those that are uninformed and/or misinformed about political topics negatively affecting your life. How do we do this? By exercising our first amendment right and creating meaningful conversations with anyone willing to listen.

Let this type of discussion become normalcy within your life. Don’t let your conjecture be shunned by “I hate politics” or “that stuff doesn’t interest me.” Be creative. Make it your duty to have the listener bridge their own conclusions with the growing trend of an impoverished U.S. citizenry. Don’t forget to listen. Discover from the conversation what’s important to your counterpart and help them understand that bigger deficits, a weaker dollar, a foreign policy built on war, a corrupt money supply, eroding national borders, and unconstitutional governmental laws (NDAA, Patriot Act, Federal Reserve Act, Federal Firearms Act to name a few) will equate to the loss of those things near and dear to him or her.

    I’ve been doing something similar to what is talked about in this article. Often times I get rejection or sighs. Any ideas on how to improve my tactic?

      Mark,
      My suggestion to you would be to dig a bit deeper. Ask pertinent questions to discover his/her’s interests. Figure out what is affecting them and help them understand how public policy is exacerbating their situation.

      Make the conversation about them and your role is to help them answer the question why!
