My nerd crush gets me. When she puts her words down on paper, she gets me even more! Yes...you guessed it. Melissa Harris-Perry.
In a letter to Sen. Reid she stated, "...senator, with all due respect–please grow a pair. Of ovaries. Maybe that’ll help you woman up and be more like your colleague, Sen. Dianne Feinstein."
Now, whether you are on the far right of gun control or to the far left you have to appreciate what's going on here.
1. How my wife MHP (in my mind of course) called out Harry Reid, and told him to grow a pair of ovaries
2. Calling out a democrat that has connections and close ties with the NRA (which I think is awesome because one party should not own anything)
3. Politics will never let you down when it comes to one thing - POWER!
So do you really think Sen. Reid will stick his neck out there for what the "party" believes is right but will make him unelectable? He barely won last time.
Overall, I am not here to dive into the gun control debate because it shows how people can be insensative on one side and totally innacurate on the other.
What I do want to dive into is how leaders need to be CALLED OUT! With that being said...do we have any leaders? Any leaders that can't be bought? Fearless when it comes to making the right decision? I know it's important to DO THINGS RIGHT, but we also need leaders that are ready to DO THE RIGHT THING?
I hope this movement begins today. When you get a chance, write down the contact information on a leader you follow or don't follow (or a so-called leader for that matter) and CALL THEM OUT!
If we do not keep our "leaders" accountable...WHO will? The NRA that uses the 2nd amendment as a defense even if it doesn't make common sense? Or the environmental groups that stop power projects that can create jobs and lower our energy costs?
It's 2013. Be heard. Don't be silenced. The Monikarchy is real...and if you don't know...you better ask somebody!
