Welcome to ChezRepublic.
This blog was created: Of the People. By the People. For the People.
2. preposition, French: “at or in the home of; with.”
1. noun, Latin origination: “What America used to be”
2. noun, (Latin: res publica): a form of government in which the country is considered a “public matter,” not the private concern or property of the rulers, and where offices of state are subsequently directly or indirectly elected or appointed rather than inherited.
In short, this is your “home” for commentary relating to the people and things that make up our Great Nation.
I’ve always held a version of America in my mind that closely resembles a “utopia.” And, I’ve always approached life saying, “Why not strive for greatness?” Why settle for less than your full potential? After all, we only have one shot at this. We have this one, single life… SEIZE THE DAY!
All that positive stuff aside–let’s cut to the chase:
For the love of all things holy, what is happening in this country?…When did we become so useless, lazy and apathetic? Why are people afraid to speak their minds? When did we become so arrogant and wasteful as a society? Why this preoccupation with being politically correct? Since when did the word “compassion” overtake principle?
A former journalist, I’m curious by nature. I’ll provide commentary–and hopefully spark the thought process–on a variety of topics of interest: Health. Sports. People. Politics. Current Events. Fitness. Business. Education. Spirituality. Environment. Travel. Philosophy. Style. Books. Writing. Relationships. If nothing strikes your fancy, then we’re collectively out of luck…No harm. No foul. Move along. (Freedom of choice is a beautiful thing).
“We the people” must play a proactive role in shaping society. Half of the battle ahead of us is basic awareness…After that, it’s all about taking action.
Here’s to building a solid America,
