democracy? Never Had It!
Written by: Victor E. Moseley
My own astonishment is one thing, but absorbing all the shock and profound disappointment from Democrats, Independents and like-minded citizens is curious. My last digital article spoke about those people that have only one lot in life which is their pursuit of ‘POWER’. First the rest of us that are witnessing the birth of a nation that truly gives to all people their value know this ‘period of time’ this arc is necessary to reach Dr. Martin Luther King’s ‘DREAM’. ‘Content’ means… to look intellectually at what’s before you and discern it’s worth truthfully.
Achieving equality through the ‘content of character’ means ‘power’ must not be ‘hoarded’ as it is now. My loyal readers to whom I will forever be grateful know that as a Black man I believe America‘s goal or her ‘ideals’ are obtainable. Obtainable with the participation of everybody. That’s why I believe America has never truly been democratic. Hold on a minute. Let me explain.
When fighting a war history tells us every battle will not be won. The greater focus as it should be is to win the war. Sure there are pockets of democracy in America, but it isn’t a sure thing to last long. It is not enough to point to examples where full representation for a diverse community thrives. Economic growth (more topics to be examined later) is what I’m trying to help bring about here. I believe it is possible to have 3 hundred and fifty to 5 hundred thousand high paying jobs created every month in America. The key is having everybody knowing their voices are heard and acted upon.
That is why those who now have the ‘power’ the Republicans are and will use every devious and demonic trick they know to hold onto it. Now this is the part where I piss off some people. Evangelicals or as I call them ‘EVANDEVICALS’, you all better hope God has a sense of humor. Just because old white men told you that power belongs to you just means you will share their spiritual fate. For God’s sake you are voting for people who don’t have a problem with children being murdered.
Read that last sentence again. Just because you want to hold onto ‘power’ you are also saying it’s okay for children to be slaughtered. Yeah you are! If you believe I’m lying on you prove me wrong. Do something right for a change. Vote straight Democrat from dog catcher to city council to Federal representative, Senator and United States President.
White women and men voting Republicans in office have caused all our short comings. Do you want a prosperous future for yourself and your children? You have got to see that what President Biden and the U.S. Congress has done to pass legislation to pull our prosperity from the unseen world into reality! Help yourself if that’s all you’re thinking about. Just vote those people out of the way that are afraid of the change that will come sooner or later. No matter what, change always comes.
Do you want China, Russia, Europe to lead in innovation? Clean energy and restoration of our natural resources? Do you want to sit back and say somebody else will do it knowing ‘that’ somebody else ‘ain’t thankin bout chu’!
democracy? You never had it. It is possible though to have it one day.
