Americans are a lazy bunch.
And it's very evident when you look through catalogs with plus-sized living furniture and clothes, minute attention spans with our facts coming from instantaneous sound bites and no skills in physical research that make us intellectually lethargic.
We see an over abundance of treadmills, ellipticals and other equipment at yard sales, consignment shops and even stores that are dedicated to selling your used equipment.
We see more and more bookstores close that used to stimulate our intellectual pursuits.
After years and even decades of supersizing portions, houses and the like, America is starting to see that being overweight in your body and in the economy is not necessarily a good thing.
During this political season, for just one day, we need to get up off our couches, get out and vote.
The walk to your car is a good thing. The interaction with other people in positive debate gets your heart going and keeps your thought processes in gear.
Voting gives us a common unified goal that we do have our own functioning thought processes and can solidify our positions behind our beliefs via a candidate.
It also shows that we care about the future of the United States, the next generation and the world community. If we don't voice our vote, I fear that our activity of inaction will bring forth elected officials that will not be right for many of us.
So when November 6 comes along, remember this, that people have died and are continuing to die to give us this privilege and hard won duty, and the least we can do to honor them is get up, get out and VOTE!
