Hopeful Democracy


Every falling leave brings us closer to the climax of the 2006 election cycle. The voices of democracy are sprawling for action. Engrained in our heads we are taught that is the fundamental right of the people. To some peoples in other lands, the right to vote is something to die for, but in America the great champion of democracy so few actual will turn out to vote. Statistics show that when higher numbers turn out to vote the great likely hood Democratic candidates will win, lower turn outs Republicans win.

This election is marred by a deep urge for drastic change in the direction of the country. There is hope from many that the Democrats will sweep the nation. Historically elections during non-presidential years receive lower turn outs. I hope this trend changes and Americans realize that every vote we make makes a difference. While the President is the predominant voice for the country, it is the other elected officials who have the power to shape the direction of our nation. The current Republican led Congress is nothing but a mere rubber-stamp for the President. We the people need to put a check on his power. The checks and balances of our system were set up to prevent over zealous use of the Presidency and it's time our government get on the same page as the population. We the people please get out and vote, our constitutional democracy is ridding on it.

Peace, Justice and Prosperity

Robb, we are hoping for positive outcomes here in Oregon as well, but there is a GOP candidate for Gov here that has a lot of people worried. He got some major media endorcements. I hope the people show them and him just how out of touch they are.
