Thought For The Day: after listening to Bernie Sanders

I came across a novel idea while listening to a Bernie Sanders speech on Democracy Now.  He suggested that in order to have a fair and equitable society it was necessary for all adult citizens to be able to vote.  His idea was that if enough of voting age population were not dissuaded by law or simply by choice to forgo voting that a positive change may occur in the lives of the average citizen.  Is that crazy or is that revolutionary or is it just more foolish talk to placate those who will never get a fair shake in a society run the way America is run?

As I listened to Bernie I became inspired.  I imagined all the poor and dispossessed coming together, ditching Clinton the elitist candidate, in favor of a chance to improve their own lot.

If you are a poor person just take time to imagine what so many of the votes of the disenfranchised could do to effect a positive change in your future.  There's a lot more voters down on their luck than there are Americans riding the gravy train. But you have to ditch Clinton to do it.  She's part of the network of oppression that Bernie is offering a way out of by introducing the idea of one vote for each citizen of voting age.

That's the way I see it anyhow.  Can America become the land of enough for everyone, or does it have to stay the way it is? After listening to Bernie I realized it's up to the voter to take the bull by the horns.  And you know, that bull lives on Wall Street where Hillary gets a lot of support. I also realized that those who wish to deny the right to vote to citizens are enemies of the people plain and simple.
