If only we were dealing with a tangled web. This web was woven with thick ropes that are sticky and it somehow it has wrapped itself around every part of you, suffocating you with worry about it's heaviness, tricking you into panicking and surrendering to apathy:
This is hard to watch and literally makes you feel heavy - as if it's all never going to change. It's us against the big bad THEM.
Max Baucus' is a Democrat. Max Baucus is the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. He is "in charge" of the health care reform bill in the Senate. He is our mouthpiece for health care reform.
He appears to have been bought and paid for. It appears as if he doesn't give a rat's bum about real change and getting "health care for all".
Here's the thing, all of this? It's designed to make us apathetic. Guess what? Those heavy sticky ropes? All an illusion! There are way more of US than them!!
Don't let apathy kill your spirit or strangle your voice. Do NOT go quietly into the sweet night - fight and fight like hell. Struggle against the tendrils of this web and break free, fight for the public option, let's ALL DO SOMETHING.
Let's Get Busy!
Great, do something, get busy, just do it. Nice slogans but what the heck can one person do?
One person can make their voice heard. One person can inspire another to make their voice heard. One person can influence a lawmaker, a journalist, a community organizer, a blogger, a neighbor, a spouse. One person can forward this info to their friends and family. One person can start a domino effect.
One person can make a difference. YOU are that one person!
Call, fax, e-mail, write, Twitter/Tweet to Senators & members of Congress that:
1. We MUST have a strong public option,
2. The American people WANT health insurance that's as good as theirs,
3. We are watching them and we will campaign FOR those that support health insurance for all and AGAINST those that don't.
When you are done doing this, look up your representatives and call, text, fax and e-mail them too!
p.s. I adore Bill Moyers!
