You are absolutely correct. We talk. We don't do.Silent majority is just that.... silent. Absent from the fight we have had and have. We had so many chances...... nada.
We feel that it's wrong to take extreme measures to accomplish good things. Until recently, I've never believed the time was right. Now, with the extremes that the socialists are pointing to, it's time.
No, I'm wrong. As you said in your post, the time was many moons ago. I felt then that the voting booth was the place to accomplish these things but the problem is, there are too many who won't even do that very easy thing. And yet, these same believe that they will do the hard thing.
They won't. We won't. We have seen that.
Someone posted a meme on here the other day which said something like, "We're near the time which good men will have to do bad things to worse people."
We're likely past that time.
But we're good people. It's tough to decide to do hard things. We also have a lot to lose. We have houses, families, possessions, paychecks, responsibilities and if we do hard things, we risk losing all of that. The socialists have little or nothing to lose and they also have the support of monied, powerful people in high places to support them.
The question becomes, how far do we have to be pushed before it prompts us to act? And what is the right action, anyway?
