Actions speak louder than words. We all know the say by now. What happens when no actions follow with any words from those we elect to speak and make the best decision for us? When will a senator, mayor etc. choose to make a decision because he or she knows that’s what best for the country, especially if that decision determines if you die or live tomorrow?
It is time that officials take their emotions, beliefs out of vital decisions and understand the constitution of this country. As much America has to offer, the rights granted as a result of the constitution. It is sad to see so many immoral, chauvinistic and incompetent elected officials claiming to represent others, when deep down, their interest is what matters.
Six months ago, WoC told you about the purple party America needs. If you have been watching the two parties in our country, you’ll know now is the time to seize the moment to start a new political party. It was Andrew Jackson who says “I’ve got big shoes to fill. This is my chance to do something; I have to seize the moment.” And now is the time for America to seize the moment. It is time that we accept America is changing and change as people and politically.
“Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime.” – W.E.B. Du Bois
“Growing is the result of learning.” Malcolm X
Let’s face it, when it comes to improving things like politics, inequality, taxes, social justice, America leads, but we are hypocrites too.
- We know war means deaths (more children, women will died), economic distress and hunger, yet we love wars. The men and women serving this country are well capable of using their skills to change lives globally and at home rather than using force.
- Countries like Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya and others have horrible policies toward women. We agree something should be done. In America, however women and minorities are still fighting many 1920 inequalities, e.g. one’s rights to vote.
“America is the best half-educated country in the world” Nicholas M. Butler
Our so-call elected leaders who constantly use Race and Religion when they run out of options to discriminate and hate, should be banned out of office. These are people who hinder progress, forget what America was founded on and who made up this country. If a leader is not about bringing people together and stand for freedom and peace for all, he or she should not be trusted. Shame on those who choose to use our tax dollars for selfish and personal reasons, what’s new?
Let’s assume that you have been following what is going on in America today and the top issues are the following:
- Socioeconomic status
- Gender Inequality
- Racism and Multiculturalism
- Global Warming
Do you ever wonder how things could have been different IF President Barack Obama was a republican instead of a democratic elected president? Would we be better off or worse off and why? Please tell us.
Some of the complexities surrounded by race are due to lack of cultural and race education that have been missing in our world education system for too long. We learn more about wars than we learn about peace, how people live and why. We need to change the way we think in a globalized world by accepting what’s different from what we used to at times. “The crucial thing is we tend to look at people from other groups and stereotype.” Racism isn’t a disease, it is a natural sin we born into”— David Brooks. Only you know if you were born into a sin or not and CHANGE it. The death of Trayvon Martin brought us together to fight for justice, justice we all believe America will bring. This tragedy is an indication that America as we know it learned a lesson since Emmett Till brutal killing.
Our ancestors Dreamed for today. We are dreamers for today, tomorrow and a 2016 woman for America & the world
Last night I came across a very nice gentleman. After few exchanges, I handed him my card. He asked if I was a feminist. I asked, what’s your definition of a feminist? He responded by saying “women who are for women progression, justice and rights and so on.” I responded by saying YES, and I think everyone should too and he agrees. He asked do I believe Secretary Hillary Rodham should run in 2016. The answer is I love Hillary, she has fought for all of us; however I do not believe she should run.
