I Believe in the Power of One

Why do the poor care the least who holds power? Why do you care about who's in or out of government? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 560).

Currently in the United States there are radically divergent views about a number of matters. In the news today was the issue of whether or not to increase government regulation of firearms. One major representative of the opposing view even said that tragedies such as the mass killing of students with firearms is simply status quo "stuff" that just "happens." There is no distinction made between egg beaters and assault rifles when discerning regulatory implications.  While I am only one, I know that my vote matters because I am one of those who helped Obama get elected for two terms.  His sentiments regarding most issues – perhaps with the exception of infanticide as a means of birth control – align with mine. It is deeply reassuring to know that even during the most acrimonious periods, the simply sane can hold significant power despite constant thunderous blasts from the wacky opposition questioning the basic legitimacy of government to cultivate health and safety.
