Want to make a difference in your world, your country, your community? Get off Facebook and put down the TV remote. Talk to your neighbors. Talk to your children. Talk to your elected officials. Above all, don’t let others tell you what to do or think.
Stand firm by your principles. Articulate and defend them publicly with great vigor, even in the face of vociferous opposition from those who would prefer that you be silenced. Don’t speak TO the corrupt media complex. Speak OVER and AROUND them.

It’s YOUR First Amendment.
