Complainers need to be heard at the polls

"We in America do not have a government by the majority. We have a government by the majority who participate." -- Thomas Jefferson.

If it was obvious all those years ago, why haven't we caught on? You need to participate in government, both by voting and supporting ideas and individuals we believe in. The entitlement class has it figured out -- vote for those that will give them the best things in life.

Those of us footing the bills aren't smart enough to campaign and vote to stop it. You can complain all you want, but until you at least vote, you aren't actually doing anything about it. Voter fraud, or should I say deceit, seen to be quit common around here. By the time the courts get around to dealing with it, the damage is already done. Just how many cases are simply ignored, or no-billed, by sympathetic prosecutors?

Time for the working class standing up and taking the country back from the politicians and the entitlement folks. No, I don't mean Social Security or Medicare for those that contributed, as this isn't an entitlement but an earned benefit.
