Progressive Action Spot

"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

Powerless

That is how I have felt for quite some time.

The acknowledgement that winning seats in 2008 was more important to the House of Representatives than Impeachment and protecting the Constitution, has left me in a place of apathy towards it all.

I still have a hard time believing that everything that they do is campaigning. I honestly thought that they had the best interest of the Country at the forefront of their agenda. I believed that they took their oaths to Protect the Constitution seriously...

I find it hard to believe any of this anymore when they have taken Impeachment off of the table.

You cannot take a large part of the Constitution off the table. Yet they have done this.

As a result, I find it hard to continue to participate as I once did. I still study but it is not with the same intention behind it. It is more with a secret desire to prove myself wrong. It is with a desire to find those who still put the Country before politics.

If I believed that we the people were still in charge of our government, I would have much fervor behind actions to make a difference. I find this difficult to believe anymore.

I would love for someone to prove me wrong.
