Never before have we seen so many ordinary citizens standing up for issues we believe in. I love Grass Roots Democracy! It is that radical resistance of seeking the unattainable.
Over the years our government seems to have lost the true meaning of the word Democracy. Its people became complacent and Democracy fell asleep. It grew a single minded focus.
Since November resistance has come calling. Marches and daily actions have become the focus. There has been an awakening to be persistent in holding our elected officials accountable.
We must continue to push back. When they try to take our right to vote away, we push back with automatic voter registration. When they have cut school funding, we have passed referendums to show how important our local schools are to us. The list goes on and we are gaining ground. This gives me hope.
Public opposition is a very effective tool in making policy!
