I am spending my day watching Hamilton to remind myself of what this country is all about. Granted, it was not built with me in mind, but I’ll take it. Our idea of government was designed for white male landowners. It had to ensure that the people of Rhode Island had the same power as the people of Pennsylvania. But from this people came ideas like the story of Alexander Hamilton.
I early voted so I am sitting back and waiting on the results like everyone else. What I love about it is we are seizing the opportunity to make the system work for us, even though it is not easy. People have ideas of what the United States is all about, but we are all beginning to see that it is not what we thought. It is even better. We gotta werk!
I have participated in the voting process since I was 18. I love it. I believe in it. I have seen it work, but you have to commit to it. I am excited that so many people have registered and voted. It is going to make the jury pool look amazing.
This country is designed to work with citizens participating in the process. We have gotten lazy and wanted someone else to do it for us. We have settled for the lazy, criminal element and have lived with the consequences of it. 2020 is the year we hold people accountable. It is the year we take back our process.
Remember ya’ll we are still a relatively a young country. Lets not throw away our shot.
