Once in a while, you come across a video clip that stands out above the cacophony of outrage/sensationalism and really strikes a chord. Let me admit from the outset that I know nothing about Carey Wedler outside of this video she put together on YouTube. I did a bit more research about her and found out that she was banished by Twitter recently, which makes sense given the viral nature of her video and the most insightful way she broke down the broken nature of our political system. A vast majority of us believe that our political system no longer works for us, but too many hang on to personalities and partisanship that get in the way of a true revolution #WhatSheSaid Click To Tweet
She was once an avid Obama supporter who eventually realized that she was duped by the banks first president. Her story, in some ways, echos my own. Sometimes the people who push back against a corrupt system the most are the ones who fell head first for it before. This video below is a parody but I really hope that people listen to what she is saying. This is not some slick attempt to sheepdog people from one party to another nor is she trying to ridicule others. She uses wit to break down the manipulation that is at the core of this duopoly and implores people to pay attention to policies instead of being transfixed on personalities. Give her a shot and listen to what she said.
