Step with us into new era

No single president or person is going to change the world or the way politics in this country work. In fact, it seems as though the only thing a president can do by himself is decide to go to war. Picking sides right or left is the surest way to create indecision and slow down the progress of the nation. If you want progress, the people must agree on what is important. To do this, you need to use critical thinking and have an open mind; these are the two most important tools when making a good decision. If you want to make progress as a nation, don’t expect someone else to do it for you. Start focusing on teaching your kids how to think with an open mind and think critically. Start thinking about how we are going to change the curriculum to engage students, and find a way to send every child to college. Every succeeding generation will bring change for the better. Change doesn’t start at the top and trickle down, it starts with the people and the government reacts. So, while many older “adults” argue over which idiot should pretend to run the country next, the youth of the nation (like they always have) are sparking positive change through the “Occupy Movement” and the group “Anonymous.” They’re making change happen for the benefit of society as a whole! So check your preconceived notions at the door and step with us as the paradigm shifts into the New Era of freedom and opportunity not held back by the those who created our current system to benefit only themselves.
