to Speak ~ to be Heard

   As overwhelming and, quite frankly, stomach churning as the flow of political posting on facebook has been, I honestly believe that the recent years' increase of social media has been extremely beneficial in preparation for election time. 

   Syndicated television talking heads and newspaper publishers are no longer the only voices heard across the nation. Honest, hard-working people and lazy, shiftless bums alike are given fair opportunity not only to speak but to be heard through unedited, unfiltered, raw social media.

   The ugliness of political banter will not necessarily change, but the privilege as Americans to choose our local and national leadership is a privilege not experienced by most of the world... and with it, we bear the responsibility to speak, for We the People govern our nation.
