Citizens must step up

In these days of bitter political divisions, rampant dishonesty, failed business ethics, religious bickering, prejudice, disregard for meaningful regulations, lack of common sense and civility, greed, failed international leadership, unfair tax laws and special interests in control of our government, we find ourselves in a deep economic recession which will lead us into a “Third World status.” Collectively, we need to correct the above.

Question: “Are we part of the problem or can we be part of the solution?” Good citizenship requires we should be part of the solution. It is too easy to blame others for our shortcomings. Get involved. Write letters. Make calls. Vote.
