Awakenings |


I believe my fellow Democrats are finally awakening from “the long winter’s nap” and finding their voices. Further proof of this is that the consciences of the moderate Republicans are starting to bother them.

The polls are showing it and the letters to the editor are beginning to show it. When they start speaking against the term “We the People,” I know we have hit a sore spot. After all, they like it much better when “They the People” control everything, get all the breaks, and we remain silent.

We must increase our crescendo, speak out and just be overtly annoying to our fellow citizens. Their consciences will finally make them face the music, so to speak, and confront the monster they have created.

“We the People” will not go away. After all, why should we? We are the masses. Carry on, fellow Democrats. Nice to have you back.
