I wished I could say I thought of it but I didn’t. It was on CBS’s Seal Team. Loosely quoted, it is corruption and indifference are powerful allies. Although I certainly agree, I would add two words. Corruption and indifference are powerful and dangerous allies.
Let’s all remember to vote. If we don’t, we will most certainly face corruption and likely lose the precious right to vote. Even the smallest vote is important, even for the proverbial dog catcher. In some ways, the small contest is even more important. The smaller the number of voters, the more that your vote counts.
However, even in the big elections, you vote counts. Think of it. according to Clinton, President Trump lost based on popular vote. A few more votes for Trump and they would not have that argument. Moreover, every vote sends a signal, a mandate. Had president Trump won by ten million, we just might have our wall now and maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t have to pay 1000 dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance. Because he lacked the large margin, he lacked the political capital. He even had to face republicans, of all things.
To be sure, there were three major reasons that President Trump won the election: taxes, the wall (as well as immigration), Iran and the globalists. Under the heading of globalists, we can include, the Paris accord the TPP. May I remind one and all, any time we enter a treaty, that treaty exceeds our constitution. For that reason alone, all treaties should be entered with great care. In these treaties, the US would be giving up a much of our sovereignty and we would gain nothing. It would have been a big step toward one world government. That might be good, but for one thing. That government would likely be run by very corrupt people, as the UN is today.
Remember, a vote for a dem is a vote for globalism, more regulation and less freedom. It is not just important to beat them at the ballot box, but we must send them a message that we don’t like a government that takes our money, gives it to the like of Iran and then tells us what to think.
