Today anyone can make up an accusation or allege inappropriate conduct about a person. Misinformation has become the main frame to discredit individuals, companies, members of the media, even our country leaders, among others. Cyber attacks, your co-worker hearsay all are apart of the New World Order. We live in the Information Age, the problem misinformation is information. Does not sound like the United Sates, my fellow citizens it is the United States. People are not being held accountable for not truly understanding the rules and their role in maintaining a great nation.
We still have people from all over the world flocking to our country asking can we become Americans. Can we work hard hold our family dear and some day say we are American Citizens ? Like all countries, there are contradictions of laws and social structure. Having noted that we must review how our progress in the world is causing huge problems. Technology has already taken away all aspects of our constitution.
Democrats and Republicans conventions are over now. The nominees have presented their case as to what they can do for us. No candidate spoke of how they can restore our civil liberties. The reason why, they cannot do it alone. Only you and I can rebuild our lost liberty.( The parents of the fallen US Army soldier held a copy of ACLU pocket guide for The Constitution.) They can lead, but we must use the laws that are available to protect us. Not look away when the other guy takes a hit. If wrongdoing develops in your life stand for what’s rights. The laws are there to protect you. Don’t just go on twitter. Write a letter to your representatives, local state federal. Hold them accountable to your cause, complaints wishes.
The history books have many countries who populations look the other way. It’s not me, not my problem. One such country was Nazi Germany. No major body did anything during the period from 1926 until 1933 after which the party control Germany. Our present social and economics problems demand input, trust, patients. This is not a commentary posting. All hands on deck for a better America. Become proactive for whatever cause. for if we procrastinate, freedom can slip away. It can happen like lightning. Don’t give America away. Thanks for stopping by and continuing good health. ( James Jenkins Counselor Emeritus, Freelance media New York Press Club)
