"...when more than one hundred million of us don't bother to vote in a federal election, it certainly underscores the 'apathy' portion of a nation's fatal sequence."
"President James A. Garfield...'Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.' "
These excerpts were taken from the book "How Do You Kill 11 Million People" by Andy Andrews.
Very thought provoking, short read. I recommend it.
Andy Andrews' "political agenda" is for "America's present and future leadership to embrace and live up to America's core principles as written by our Founding Fathers and set forth in our Constitution...(and to have the public) vigilantly hold them accountable for doing so."
Ah, now that's a good agenda.
Off to bed.
