McAulay: “The Birds of a Feather, Flock Together”: Ending the Divisions

What if we lived in a world that no one cared about what “their group” was telling them to do, and instead they just did what was right? Everyone knows the phrase, “Birds of a feather, flock together.” But why do we let that define us? Why are we not willing to work across the aisle? This is an everyday issue, and in the political world it is extremely evident.  It is time we end this bi-partisanship. We must fight for what is right, no matter who the opposition is.

In our current political situation there is a major line drawn between the two political parties, and instead of voting for a person, people vote for “their” party. I firmly believe bi-partisan politics is tearing this nation apart.

When people enter the ballot box the majority simply vote a straight party ticket, without any knowledge on the person’s record or qualifications. We need to stop this blind voting and elect officials with proven leadership and a willingness to stand up for what is right, even if their own “team” is opposed. We need leaders to represent “We the People” in our Local, State and Federal Governments.

Within the upcoming elections, 2011 and 2012, America’s future is at stake. It is time for “We the People” to stand up and tell our Government, “You work for us, not for yourselves!” We are at a cross roads and I challenge every American to make an impact in these next elections, by voting, getting involved, talking with friends, and staying informed. 

Let your voice be heard, do not back down. Forget the fancy rhetoric, and vote for someone who is going to fight, not for their own selfish gain, but for America.
