Why do we refer to ourselves as consumers? Because we consume, yet this isn’t what we really are. It’s like trying to make sense of a person by looking at their water bill. It doesn’t tell you much.
What we really should call ourselves are citizens. We members of great nations who look to improve our standing in the world. Collectively North America has long been a great place to achieve dreams, but it’s now lacking that somewhat. We have forgotten true greatness doesn’t come with a new TV on credit but rather great people which starts with our leaders.
So remember to vote in your upcoming election. There is no such thing as a wasted vote. Find which party most agrees with your own beliefs and then vote accordingly. Be a citzen and not a consumer and remember to vote.
