Anyone who hasn't done so should read the following URL.

I'll wait.

Now read this, too.

Done? Good.

I'm not going to get on a soapbox and start ranting a la Dennis Miller here, but I am going to say this.

Every year, every day, every minute more and more of our fundamental rights are taken away from us.

The vast majority of people don't even realize it.

This country has a wonderful little safety feature, somewhat akin to a built-in revolution every four years. It's called an election. It's a chance for every person in America to wake up, stand up, and in every combined voice and dialect in this land, say, "We will not take this anymore!"

When that right, the right to freely choose our own leaders, the right to freely choose our own destiny, is the one being not just taken, but stolen from us, it's time to stand up.

It's time for a change. I, for one, don't intend to wait for the election.

It may seem useless, but write your congressmen and women. Write your governor. Write your newspaper. Write your locals news stations. Write your cousin in the sheriff's department, but for god's sake, do something.

Don't just stand there and let this shit be pulled on you.

Go make some noise.

For all our sakes.

Read this link. It's posted above, but dammit, I want to make sure this gets noticed.

It is the story that I had posted in this writeup before. Since the website is now working, the story has been removed from this daylog until I can secure permission from the author to repost it.

This isn't a bug, it's a feature.
