Slackers Uprising and Uproar Slacker Uprising copyright © 2008 Betsy L. Angert. BeThink.org Big businesses try to silence them, and these influential institutions succeed. Brazen persons, abundantly affluent, and government officials, content with the status quo also wish to secure the stillness. The hush from the hordes of those who do not vote does not disturb those who are well off. Undeniably, the quiet of millions calms those who want only the few and proud to vote. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are seemingly apathetic. Many of those who actively participate in elections are grateful. Some might say the young, the disenfranchised, or the everyday average citizen does not care. Indeed, most feel as though they have no power. Half of the public, are not counted as constituents for they do not vote. Many have not bothered to register. Those who did file the proper papers do not appear at the polls on Election Day. Nor do they cast an absentee ballot. Throughout this country, people have no faith that they can change the system. Several say, "You cannot fight City Hall; nor can one little person affect what Congress does." Certainly, these persons believe they will not choose the President of the United States. Politics is a game. The machine is fixed, and not in favor of the grunt, the peon, or the poor people who do the labor. What is, sadly, for those with less time, currency, or clout will persist.

The hype may heighten; still there is work to be done. Americans already confident that their chosen candidate will win the Presidential election, may wish to assess what happens quickly. People are fickle. A voter can vacillate. Someone may say they will cast a ballot for one candidate or the other. However, when a constituent finally places pen to paper, punches a card, pulls a lever, or touches a computer screen, one never knows what that person will ultimately do. No matter what any individual tells a pollster, every citizen must remember, people change their minds. The only certainty is the notion nothing is constant. Each of us must recall, how capricious any human being can be and how imprecise public opinion polls are. Even election results can be other than they appear to be. When humans are involved, anything can happen. People are emotional, not necessarily rational. Constituencies are more easily swayed than we might imagine or wish to believe. We each may justify, intellectualize, and seem resolute. Indeed, every being is strong. Men and women are strong-willed. If the public harnesses this vigor, we, the people will have the power to change the county. If as a united force, the populace is to transform America, every one of...
