Hey Donald, You’re Not The Boss of Me

This is well written and worth the read. Too often it seems like we have no choice when it comes to government, but contrary to what most believe, we have all the choice (and the power).

I'm a middle aged technology geek with a life long passion for computers, technology, politics, science and all the bits in the middle between 0 and 1. I used to be a liberal but have mellowed in my advanced years to be more of a moderate conservative with a side of progressive for variety. What that means? Well, that means I carefully weigh all points, listen to what people are saying, then make an informed opinion that makes sense to the largest number of people without being fundamentally unfair. I run a personal blog, help manage and write for a community blog, and manage many other sites for various local businesses. I'm not perfect and failure is always an option, it's how we all learn.

  1. “In your Inaugural speech, you said that ‘We are transferring power from Washington, D. C. and giving it back to you, the people.’ While it became apparent during your campaign that your knowledge of the Constitution and how our government works were limited, at best, this statement only substantiates it.”

    whether you like the guy or not, this statement he made really doesnt “prove” anything.

    the fact is, the constitution always has power, but the more unconstitutional laws are passed (theyre illegitimate, but theyre not removed yet) the more trouble we are in.

    a statement like trumps could be intended to signal a return to a status of constitutional laws, with threats to the constitution like tpp being taken down.

    im far from that optimistic, but trying to make it out be rhetoric based on pure ignorance– i just dont agree. his statement could be interpreted that way, but its only one interpretation. you seem to be saying that americans havent lost power– to lobbyists for example. they certainly have. as ive said before, “great” is fine and all– id like to make america *constitutional* again.

    1. I agree with you some of the statements on the original post were, at best, author opinion, what I got out of this was energy to keep going. Too many Americans have forgotten or written off the government and, if properly informed, would likely not grant someone doing the opposite of what they wanted a re-election seat. There are so many problems that need to be solved, that are integrated with other problems, it really is like untangling a spider web. We’ll get there eventually, I hope, but “we the people” need to invest some effort to make it happen.
