Stand Up and Speak Out
Doesn't Iran make you a little ashamed? We who live in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave act like a bunch of depressed teenagers. Are we mad at Congress? Sure we are. Are we disappointed in politics as usual? You bet. Would we like to have a system of health care that we can afford? Oh yes. Are we doing anything about it?
We watch CNN and Fox, we yell at the TV, we shake our heads and argue on Facebook and Twitter. But when does outrage and indignation become action?
Try this. Add your name to a list that's going to be televised, a list of people who are demanding Congress act on health care reform.
It's easy. It's painless. You don't even have to get out of your chair.
When you're done, you can go back to watching the latest political follies, from the governor/Argentinian jetsetter to the playground brats who call themselves the NY Senate.
You are in awe of the bravery of the protesters in Iran. Okay, then why don't you do something, too?
