Grass Roots Reform

Most people go through life oblivious to the world around them outside their little existence.
They only know what is told to them through the mainstream media, T.V. , Radio, Newspaper, etc.
If it's not in the mainstream, then as far as they are concerned, it never happened.
Anything told to them that is counter-intuitive , causes confusion , fear, and anger.
Since most people are mis-informed and uninformed about issues of utmost importance to mankind , issues like war, poverty, racial divide, economic plight, etc., they tend to react to alternative ideas and solutions with angry words and insults, and ignorant suggestions.
Such is the case with Tequesta Councilor-elect Basil Dalack .
Mr. Dalack is a member of Veterans for Peace , and the non-profit Catholic Peace movement Pax Christi, and is a Korean War Veteran, and he has been repeatedly attacked in the local newspaper :the Jupiter Courier, as well as it's sister web-site: tcpalm.com, by people who only insult and defame, without ever addressing the issues that Mr. Dalack has brought forth.
The 76 year old semi-retired attorney who is to be sworn in on Thursday April 13 , filed a Federal lawsuit with the U.S. District Court in Ft. Lauderdale to remove oppressive wording written into the Tequesta Village Charter.
Mr. Dalack has stated that he would take the oath to join the Tequesta Village Council if the phrase 'support' the U.S. and Florida Government was removed, stating that that oath would impede his Constitutional rights.
Mr. Dalack has already proposed a resolution to withdraw the U.S. Troops from Iraq, and to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney, and to try them for war crimes.
Mr. Dalack is only one of hundreds of people throughout the U.S. who have started a grass roots campaign to peacefully force change from the bottom up.
The people of the U.S. have waited patiently for their elected Representatives at the highest level of government to carry out the will of the people and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.
Since no one at the top has been able or willing to force change, it is up to people at the bottom of the government , people like Basil Dalack.
It is time for the people to get informed on the important issues , like war, and poverty, and racial division, and stop waiting for our "Leaders" at the top of our government to end the problems that we all confronted with .
Instead of insulting and attacking people that we don't agree with , we should get informed on the issues and discuss and debate each other on these issues.
An informative alternative news site with facts and insight on the War in Iraq , Afghanistan, and soon to be attacked Iran , is www.informationclearinghouse.info
The mainstream media has already started the hype on the upcoming bombing and invasion of Iran by the U.S. ,conditioning the masses to accept it as necessary and unavoidable ,even while most people would agree that the bombing and invasion of Iraq was based on lies and was illegal.
You have the power to choose whether to accept or resist the next war in Iran and to stop the continuation of the previous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan , by supporting this grass roots reform. www.tcpalm.com
