I want to pass this along to you all because, well, because here and at many of our sites we are well off in the weeds, we tend to presume a knowledge of history and politics that many don’t have. I suspect many of the folks that wander in looking for information read a bit and go-what on earth is he talking about?
References to Henry II, and Burke, and Franklin, and Coolidge, and all. I just want to know what the darned government is doing to me NOW. Kathy does a great job of explaining it for them. We were all there sometime, last year, or last decade, or when we were kids; we all started sometime, and I’ll bet it was because somebody took the time to explain it to us.
Kathy does that, send them to her, or they’ll go back to sleep. I’ve tried to do it, and I wander off into the weeds all over again. Jess does it better here than I ever do but, she too assumes a certain level of knowledge. Liberty Trail doesn’t. It’s a valuable reference for us all
When I started writing this blog, my stated purpose was to reach out to a large sub-set of the group we have come to refer to (lovingly) as Low Information Voters. These are Americans who realized a long time ago that their elected leaders were lying to them, the people who work for those leaders were lying to them and the media was lying to them.
These LIVs are good, decent people who love America and used to believe in the promise it offered to all of us. But they have families to care for and bills to pay. They have lives to live. They don’t have the time or desire to watch every move made by every crooked politician. Ask them what they think of the people running the country and most will tell you they are dirty, rotten scoundrels.
They certainly got that part right, didn’t they?
I talked to one of these people over the weekend – a dear friend who is not afraid to admit she falls into this group. She told me that years ago she became so disenchanted with the lies and deceit that she simply tuned out. She said it was just so hard to figure out who was representing her best interest and not their own.
Now, she says there are times when she would like to jump back in, but she feels that she’s so far behind that she doesn’t know how to catch up and where to turn for some truth. And I don’t think she’s alone. I think there are millions of Americans just like her. I also believe that this is part of the grand plan – make it too difficult for the average citizen to follow their government and they will eventually give up.

This is where I send busy LIVs, you should too.
