There is always a choice!
Ignoring the politics of your country is NOT going to accomplish anything.
Being informed even if you are under the impression you can not make a difference is never WORSE than just not paying attention at all. It only takes one person to make a difference.
Freedom is responsibility. If you know whats right and stand by it then you are NOT ignoring politics.
If you feel the current government is truly beyond hope then its time for new government. That is the fundamental foundation that this country was originally founded on.
Standing by and allowing them to enslave you is simply apathy. And what you will get from that is exactly as much as you put into it, nothing.
I don’t believe in their promises BECAUSE I pay attention. I know enough to make a difference BECAUSE I pay attention. I know when the opportunity arises BECAUSE I pay attention. I can influence my OWN life BECAUSE I pay attention. I know there are options beyond the “two evils” BECAUSE I pay attention.
And when it is so bad that all is assumed lost it is those of us that DO pay attention, that will be prepared to stand our ground, demand our rights, and defy tyranny.
The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
By giving up, and giving in, then you will indeed loose. Not only will you loose your rights, and your freedom, but you will loose your dignity, and your self respect.
I choose my own path. And I choose to be informed of ANY violations that would choose to block that path.
I am free. And I will NOT sit silently in a corner and watch as I am enslaved.
If the future holds nothing more for me than slavery, I choose death.
When my Valkyrie comes for my soul, and takes me to my place among the gods, they will welcome me.
And I will take my place among them with pride, and with NO regrets.
