Using IT for Political Advocacy

While many citizens choose Twitter and/or Facebook to advocate for important causes (or just vent), it’s definitely not the only weapon in the advocacy arsenal.

Countable and VoteSpotter are two apps enabling social advocates and political junkies to obtain info regarding issues and bills, so citizens can respond in real time to their elected officials.

We need everyone to fight for our Rights. Please contact your elected officials and tell them what’s important in your life. Remember, they work for you.

Do the elected officials in Washington stand with ordinary Americans – working families, children, the elderly, the poor – or will the extraordinary power of billionaire campaign contributors and Big Money prevail? The American people, by the millions, must send Congress the answer to that question. -Bernie Sanders

 

 

 

Angry Activists VS Smug Sheep #DemExit

It’s amazing to me that people who support Hillary Clinton, a cheating liar, can be so smug and self-righteous; but I guess their votes were counted, and they don’t have the capacity for outrage for those who were unable to vote.

I wanted to vote in the primaries, but I couldn’t. Like many others, I was disenfranchised and because of that, there is no way I’m going to give my vote to the DNC, a party who should be jailed for voter fraud. I’m angry at and disappointed by the leaders of the DNC, especially President Obama. You allowed voter suppression and disenfranchisement, fraud and collusion. When I voted for hope and change, I thought it would be positive change, not a war monger and thief’s coronation.

At least we have a chance with #Berners who won’t lie down and accept the lesser of two evils for President of our country.

So, we know the two-party system is corrupt; it’s time to just say no to parties, reverting to #OnePersonOneVote in a #DemExit. But first, please sign this petition to investigate DNC election fraud.

Thank you, Bernie and Jane Sanders, for waking citizens up and fighting for the future of America.

 

 

 

Citizenship Doesn’t Stop at Voting

If you’re like many Americans, you’ve had enough with the politics of the day intruding upon and negatively impacting our daily lives. Some wonder why government and its elected officials don’t just do their jobs. At times like these, it’s important to remember that we are citizens who have a job to do as well – not unlike those before us. Each of us has to fight for what’s right in our country. Yes, citizenship doesn’t stop at voting.

Get involved with your local community boards and learn the facts about what is happening in your neighborhood. Then move up the ladder and investigate what is impacting your town, city, state, country, and our world.

Then see if you can you imagine…

a world where people make, at the very least, a living wage.

Then see if you can you imagine…

our soldiers receiving proper care and being at home more often than not.

Then see if you can you imagine…

living in an environmentally-friendly world with no fear of fracking our environment.

Then see if you can you imagine…

you and your family receiving proper healthcare.

Then see if you can you imagine…

a world with gun control.

Whether you can or can’t imagine these possibilities, contact your elected officials and tell them what you are for and against. If you are in a party, re-investigate what the party platform is and ask yourself if you still align with the party line. Remind your elected officials that they need to focus on what can be agreed upon. Advise them to stop the partisan bickering and find common ground. Ask them to consider citizens’ issues – not party politics. The influx of “artificial emergencies” over the debt ceiling, sequestration and government shut down spark real emergencies for the rest of us, and it has to stop. Remember, the squeaky wheel gets the oil. If you don’t use your voice, then your elected officials are not hearing your concerns. Instead, they’re hearing the voices and concerns of others.

Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.  – John F. Kennedy
