Mr. Fairey is certainly not the only American who has become disillusioned with the Criminal-in-Chief over the past six-and-a-half years of wanton destruction of American values and freedoms. But he is perceptive enough not to blame the Soros puppet in the White House entirely.
“We also need a public that isn’t so uneducated and complacent. I hate to say Americans are ignorant and lazy, but a lot of them are ignorant and lazy," Mr. Fairey told Esquire.
“What frustrates me to no end" he continued, "are people who want to blame Obama or blame anything that is something that if they were actually doing anything as simple as voting, it might not be as bad as it is. There’s a lot of finger pointing and very little action and very little research into the dynamics that created the situation that they’re unhappy about.”
While I can't give Mr. Fairey high points on coherent locution, his basic point is well taken. Too many Americans are "ignorant and lazy." Too many Americans would rather point fingers at whomever their political den mothers tell them to point their fingers than to research the causes of our problems and do something about them.
Other people don't cause our problems. We cause our own problems, and only we can solve them. Blaming other people is not only cowardly, it's counterproductive.
The nation is broke not because Democrats spend too much, but because we allow Democrats and Republicans both to spend too much. In fact, we encourage them to spend too much by voting for them if some of their excessive spending benefits us. Benjamin Franklin said, "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic."
But more than greed lies at the root of our problems. As Mr. Fairey correctly pointed out, too many of us are "ignorant and lazy." The opening words of the Constitution of the United States, "We The People," is more than a declaration of the uniqueness of the American Republic. It is a call to action.
We The People are the government. Whatever the creature we created in Washington DC does, it does in our name. It is our responsibility, as We The People, to guide and control that creature. We are free republicans, and if we want to remain free republicans, we must be informed and active republicans
Instead of lolling on our sofas watching Parks and Recreation or whatever other "prolefeed" we use to anesthetize ourselves, we've got to get up off our duffs, find out what's going on in our country, and get involved in running it.
It's our job.
