Independence Day?

Perhaps it's time we revisit the idea. Are we still independent? The revolution was against a nation that imposed massive corporate parasitsm upon us.

Who could argue that we are under a similar affliction now? But today, our afflictor is given its rights and power by the congress and the supreme court.

We face injustice in every direction. The coast guard protects BP from the media. Traitors like Joe Barton protect the oil giants from a weak president who does too little.

I subscribe to one tea party mailing list. Yesterday, one came, pointing out that only 17 percent of people in 1776 actually participated in the revolution. That's that eighty twenty rule. Eighty percent of just about everything gets done by twenty percent of the people. Funny coincidence that liberals make up about 20 percent of the electorate.

We CAN make change happen. It is not going to happen because a majority makes it happen. It will happen because a dedicated minority stands up and holds strong.

The weapon must be the truth and it must be broadcast widely and shone upon with a lot of light-- the light that the transparency movement and blogging have forced the powers to be to contend with.

We may be a minority. We may have little or no representation in congress. But the truths we expose will prevail.

Today is a day we remember courage that started the first contemporary Democracy. Let them remind us that Democracy is a living thing that requires care and feeding and love to survive. It is our job to rescue democracy from the parasites and carrion that would kill it... that are eating away at its heart and soul.

You are in a position to make a difference. Ask yourself, every day, what you can do, what you have to offer. And find something.
