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 Republic.
I’ve always held a version of America in my mind that closely resembles a “eutopia.” And, I’ve always approached life saying, “Why not strive for greatness?” Why settle for less than all that you can be? After all, you only have one shot at this. You only have one 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?
These questions slam my mind, daily–so I’ll entertain them with personal speculation and answers.
Curious by nature, I’ll provide commentary–and hopefully spark the thought process–on a number of topics: Health. Sports. People. Politics. Current Events. Fitness. Business. Education. Spirituality. Environment. Travel. Style. Books. Writing. Relationships. (I’ll write about all of these things, from time to time). If nothing listed strikes your fancy, then we’re collectively out of luck.
“We the people” must begin to play an active role in shaping– and reshaping– society. Half of the battle ahead of us is basic awareness…Once we are aware, we have to take action.
Here’s to building a solid republic,
