And people are mad.
These are not fringe tea party types anymore. These are people, like you and me, but willing to stand up and get involved.
This movement, the energy of it, is BEAUTIFUL! I am mad. We are mad. And we're not going to take it anymore!
But there's a glitch.
The problem is there doesn't seem to be any organized agenda or message. They're just mad. They're just marching. It makes them feel like they are actually doing something when they don't have control of anything else happening in our government. We are severely underrepresented at this point. Taxation without proper representation. But a good majority of us feel helpless. So some march. Some get arrested for it. And no one knows what this is going to accomplish.
Which is a problem. Here's why - when there is no clear message or real leadership it leaves the movement wide open for disappointment. Nothing happens. Again. Also, it leaves the movement open for fringe radicals to come in and take over. That's another problem. It needs a message. It needs to have demands. It needs to ask for something, or fight for something. Something needs to come of this, something that empowers us and gets this country back on track. And in a way where no current greedy leader with their own agenda or well-funded corporate campaign can swoop in and take credit.
