A new group on Facebook is tracking political violence and working to minimize it. There is a lot more going on than being reported in the general media. And it is not all aimed at just Democrats — like the doors of the GOP HQ that got superglued shut.
I really needed to sleep in; however, when I woke up, this violence was still continuing. This time, it seems that the GOP offices were being targeted. I knew this would eventually happen, and it’s exactly why I want us all to demand that our representatives stand up and speak against this publicly.
Until our politicians stop their own bickering, they are setting the wrong tone and serving as bad examples for their constituents. This needs to STOP… NOW! Somebody is going to get hurt… or worse!
There are other groups that are not red or blue… just waiting, and loving every minute of the discourse. WE NEED TO BE BIPARTISAN in this effort and quell this, for our own safety and our national security. If we are too busy bickering with each other over petty crap, how will we see the real threats when they just calmly walk in? And by “petty” I don’t mean to suggest that one party losing their stand is nothing to be upset about. Far from it. But in the broad scheme of things, it is not the most important thing. The USA has historically made many of its important decisions with a “winning side” and a “losing side.” But by design, if we don’t like the changes we have made, we can revisit them. THAT’S our strength in this country.
We really need to get back to debating like adults in our government. Yes, sometimes things get heated, but when they do, we need to take responsibility for our OWN actions and not pass the buck. If our elected leaders aren’t willing to do this, we need to find some who ARE willing. Again, I don’t care if you are red or blue. I’m not saying that if you are a Republican you need to vote for a Democrat. You just need to find a better Republican to represent you AND OUR COUNTRY. We need leaders who will make us proud!
Again, there are groups just waiting for the right times to take advantage of any weaknesses we show. This world becomes a smaller place every day. The way I look at it: remember when you were a tiny child and your home was your whole world? Then you got a little older and it became your block (or farm). As a teen, wow, you got to travel to town… all by yourself! Then one day, you got your drivers license. You got to travel as far as you wanted. And your block was an instant, and your town was only a few minutes away… and the world… then entire world, was at most a day away! The world became a smaller place to you, without you realizing it.
So, if you don’t think the world is watching us… if you don’t think they see what is going on…. especially with news 24/7, and the Internet… REAL terrorist groups abroad, and yes, at home… then you are being naive. And I know my members are NOT naive. That’s why you joined — to make a difference!
I have said it before, and I’ll continue to say it. I am unbelievably grateful and humbled for the support this group has gotten. It has grown into something much more than I could have wished for. Out of more than 1,100 members (as of last night) there have only been four troublemakers, and three were banned. FOUR out of more than 1,100!
Here comes my shameless plug now (lol): Please, whoever you haven’t sent invites to (yet), please send them out. Please post the link on your page, and repost it after a few hours. Ask your friends to cross-post (repost themselves). Promote the HELL outta the site! We need so many more people to be effective.
I would love to organize a phone call day when we get the numbers high enough. One or two people calling their reps, while great, isn’t all that effective. However, if we can get THOUSANDS to call on the same day?? THAT would make a difference!
My mailbox is always open if you have questions or concerns that you can’t resolve within the group.
I wish you all a great day, and more importantly… a safe day!
