The only lone voice that can be heard within the masses are the words of a psychopath. The rest of us yearning for change and acknowledgment need more than one whisper riding the wind, we need the roar of friends.
I don’t have patience for politics. I don’t know the issues and when it comes to government office I see only two options, run for it, or burn it. Everything else, talking, complaining, watching-pointless. Recently I listened to a sort of public service announcement explaining lobbyists and their various roles in Washington. A delegate was asked by a voter, “how can my (one) voice be heard?” The delegate said, “if your not a lobbyist with connections, resources, money and fame, then you need to build a coalition.
Americans hate this sort of honesty. But matter how just the freedom fighter he will fail if he doesn’t get more soldiers to believe and die for his cause. Think Jesus, think King, think Lincoln.
Five years ago, CrossFit had no Army, but today is different, today CrossFitter’s have a voice. A voice the country is hearing loud and clear. Just look at all the new folks tying to profit off us everyday. Five years ago, the phone never rang,today, I am tempted to take it off the hook. In the past I would ask for things we needed, today I demand things I know will make others heal.
Our platform is health, now we need to put someone in office.
It’s time to introduce CrossFit style legislation. CrossFitters are the walking and talking examples for community out reach, nutrition, fitness, charity, and a spirit of “can” that is contagious. We have brought the limelight to us, now we need to keep it bright, and shine it on the planet.
With rep after rep, and Fran after Fran the road lies paved with the sweat of a billion workouts. The only way to lose integrity now is to leave the that road. To keep fighting the good fight, just CrossFit. Never stop preaching, making converts and building a coalition that we can march to the steps of the whitest house in the country shouting, drowning out the voices of those sucking the life from our beautiful nation. Or, act like the reigning majority; do the opposite of what you say, live beyond your means, and pick on the other guy so that no one notices how bad you suck.
I am taking votes now- CrossFitter for President.
