DOING THE SAME THING OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN, AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT.
That is just what the people of Rhode Island have done for 160 years. First there was about 110 years of corrupt Republican rule. Then there was a revolt by the Democrats and what followed was 50 plus years of corrupt Democratic rule.
But is it really insanity, or merely apathy. Have we all been deadened to the point that we can not get outraged about it anymore? Have we all stopped paying attention? Or, have we all put on the rose colored glasses, put our eyes to the sky and started reciting to ourselves “It’s all in our backyard” “It’s all in our backyard” while trying not to trip on the piles of crap that lay before us?
I know that you all think that Fed Up in RI is very negative about our state, but nothing could be further from the truth. Our negativity is our attempt to wake you all up. To take you by the neck and shake you out of your apathetic fog and show you that despite all that has happened, Rhode Island is still here and that it doesn’t belong to them. With very little effort we can take it back and make it into anything we want it to be.
Get informed. Get involved. Get excited. Get angry. But most of all, get them the hell out of office. By them, I mean the 52 so called Representatives which voted against our wishes and agreed to bailout the bondholders of the 38 Studios fraudulently obtained bonds. All we need is 18 or so removed in this November’s election to get a majority and take back control of the entire State.
It’s do-able – it’s very do-able; and with your help, maybe this time next year we won’t need those rose colored glasses to start reciting to ourselves; “It’s all in our backyard” “It’s all in our backyard.”
