The remarkable Charley Reese wrote that there are 545 people responsible for what goes on in the United States.
"One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of the 235 million - are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country."
He may well be right, but make no mistake - every one of us who are of voting age bears responsibility also. Whether we voted or not, whether we've contacted our senator or representative, whether we've written a brief note to President Obama - each of us carries a degree of personal responsibility.
If you haven't expressed yourself - write a letter to the editor of your local paper or send an email to your federal representatives. This is the time - Charley's waiting. Whatever your viewpoint regarding our economy and political situation, stand up!
