IN HIS OWN WORDS: Jesse Ventura on DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans
In the words of the late great Pete Seeger, “Songs won’t save the planet, but neither will books or speeches.”
Words are meant to inspire, but you can’t rely on them alone to bring about change.
Talk is cheap. Anyone can say what people want to hear.
Take President Obama’s State of the Union address, for example. He’s a great speaker, but he’s an empty suit. He doesn’t have the know-how to accomplish the goals he promised the American people back in 2008, let alone 2012, let alone 2014.
Obama ran on change. Folks, I hate to sound negative, but there will be no change unless we change. Not changing from one party to another, but actual change. Regardless if a Republican or a Democrat takes office in 2016, we’ll still be in the same mess. If we stop voting for them, we’ll see change.
Who are you really voting for when you vote for a Democrat or a Republican? Not ideas. Not ideals. Not values or common goals. They are bought by the same corporations, the same lobbyists, the same special interest groups.
It doesn’t matter if a candidate is pro-choice or anti-abortion because the same people who backed him also backed his opponent. Do you get my point? You’ll always get the same government, because the same people own the Democrats and the Republicans. End of story. That’s why nothing changes and nothing will unless you remove that factor from the voting booths.
Send a message to these DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans.
Aren’t you tired of empty suits and sellouts?
We keep saying enough is enough, but guess what? Talk is cheap.
Actions speak louder than words. #VOTE
