If your hand sits simmering on a hot stove, saying you will eventually do something about it will not do you much justice. Before long and more certainly with rapid discomfort, your hand will be burnt (perhaps to a point of permanent damage), and you will have only talked about preventing burns instead of doing anything for yourself.
And so this is the case for taking action against climate change within the Democratic Party.
President Obama has made pandering out great ideas on climate control to the public while seemingly not doing anything about it an art form. In a smooth tone, he gives his audience what they want to hear, and unfortunately, that is giving him the votes he needs to continue his pandering out of more allegedly great ideas.
Do you see a pattern, and, much more, a process?
Again, and unfortunately again, this process appears to be about the art form of vote getting. That’s what it is; we cannot deny that. All parties do this in some way, and rightfully so, as it is what you need to win an election.
However, as a nation, we have reached a point where the main concern is no longer a matter pertaining only to who gets what votes and why and how they did it. If it was all about the ballot, we would be… exactly where we are now—making promises to do something because it sounds like the right thing to do but disregarding the doing part.
We’ve evolved too much, and we need to take a few steps back to get the objectivism this country started with and now ultimately needs. With today’s rapid use of resources, when we talk climate control, we are talking about the future and safety of our planet. That may sound dramatic, and many would deny this, including a number of those in the Republican Party.
Regardless, it is important to come to an agreement on the matter. We should not deny the evidence around us for the sake of money, or much of anything else for that matter.
Science does not rule everything, but we have it for a reason. If business is the only thing holding us back from preventing worldly damage, then what is there to lose really? In the long run, what can be said about us in reflection if we continue this way?
We need initiative, removal of the fear of failing to get a vote, and a party that stands for doing, not saying, as Patrick Walker of OpEdNews writes in this article:
“Like Tea Partiers, climate activists must become hard-core desperadoes, willing even to wreck Democrats’ electoral chances if their climate action demands aren’t met.”
So, what are we going to do about this? If Rand Paul can capture the conservative movement and show the liberals that he not only will make a promise, but do it, too, we will be taking a step in the right direction.
Now is the time to prevent, not tomorrow.
