Change is the unified force of our actions
What is change?
It is only when we choose not to participate that the reverse of progress is possible but as long as we're participating progress becomes the unified force of our actions.
Democracy is the process by which governmental power is politicized by citizens under a free electoral system, which means if we the people do not exercise our rights to challenge governmental powers to secure our rights under the constitution, than the electoral system which we knew as “free” will gradually dismissed our votes to become captive by those in power.
We the people are the constitution which constitutes "the legal authority underlying the existence of the United States of America and the Federal Government of the United States”. So if we want change we can’t demand it we have to take it through our actions which are not advocating violence but rather strategic means.
In my humble opinion the constitution represents a set of laws which specifies the authority of all three branches of our government. These branches are there to execute and enforce the law and we the people are there to make sure of it.
However, what makes the constitution more valuable is the fact that it's there to direct the people in making decisions that goes in accordance with the law. In a sense, it is the people of a country who gives the constitution value; members of congress are there to uphold those values that the people hold true, and to ratify the constitution when those values are no longer applicable to all.
As society develop so will our values because if society is not stagnant we can’t expect our values to be. Therefore, when the people ask that accommodation for members of society be made according to their values, members of congress will be encouraged to ratify the law to suite a collective purpose.
The issues that we are facing today are not subordinate to one group of people, they are the world issues. A change in US laws can be viewed by some as an advantage or a disadvantage to many friendly nations. As Jacque Fresco stated "There are no Negro issues, Jewish issues or women issues, they are only human issues". Therefore, if we look at the world from the view of one collective purpose, we'll become aware that all issues are interrelated.
We have to face our issues together as citizens while at the same time mindful of the policies that are signed into law. It does not matter what our differences are we can always unite for a common purpose.
We say " united we stands divided we fall " and so far the country seems to have been falling, because we are so into ourselves that we're not aware of this division. We're so distracted with our niche that we neglect anyone who is not part of it. Our distraction have made us fail to realize that unity is what give birth to change, and that being a democrat or a republican does not add or remove anything from our elected officials, but being part of a niche with one sided view does add and remove from the unified force of our action.
This is why those with political status are described as being an empty vessel, because their purpose is to carry us over to their destinations of preference. If we were to separate the political status of the candidates and just contemplate on ideas and belief, we might notice that it is not the status of the candidate that we honor, but only the values that they have shared with the people.
Presidents don’t change countries folks, that has never happen nor will it ever occur. A president must have the people on his side to carry out his action. Those who carried out actions without the people’s approval were never presidents, but instead dictators folks. No one can run a country without the people's approval, because the amount of opposition they would face would be enough to make them feel insignificant.
Presidents can only serve as an enforcer to public demands, making certain that the citizens’ wishes are achieved. But as far as change is concern, it is only the people of a country that can redirect the country's course of actions. If you were taught that a president can change a country in school you were lied to, that is simple as that.
Yeah! Come to think of it Obama was right, it is change that we can believe in for that change starts with us; otherwise we couldn't have believed it. Remember that it is we the people who decides what the change will be, the people we elect as members of government help push the change we seek and those members have very little power if we the people do not keep the pressure on.
