What’s the FIRST THING that comes to mind when you see one of these?
“SWEET… hey! Can I plug my phone in?”
“OUCH! Don’t put your finger in there!”
Or maybe, just simply “… does it WORK?”
There are MANY questions that can come to mind. An endless stream of possibilities of all shapes and sizes. Thankfully, there’s one question no one has think about:
“If I plug this in, will it be destroyed?”
A consistent flow of POWER. From my living room here in KCK, to the halls of Harvard or Yale. Wherever you see one of these, whatever device you plug into it will get a pre-determined, regulated flow of power. No matter what State you’re in, in every city, in every building, as required by law.
This assurance makes creating ways of utilizing that POWER much easier and more effective. Producing products tailor-made to work specifically in EACH STATE would be costly, and consumers would have to remember WHAT can be used and in WHICH State. Every time we move to a different State, we’d have to ADAPT to a different regulation of POWER. Some States would have MORE power flowing to the PEOPLE, and others… LESS.
Some States believe government isn’t the answer to ANY of our problems, so there might be some States where the guarantee of an even distribution of POWER doesn’t exist. Some cities in that State might receive TOO MUCH power at one particular time, while at the SAME TIME other cities have NO POWER. Of course elected officials would want to make sure ALL citizens had access to SOME power. After all… the interests of the people who DOLE that power out have to be considered, too…
The establishment of a nationwide infrastructure to provide consistent POWER for ALL PEOPLE paved the way for advances in technology that were unimaginable before it was accomplished. People lived their entire lives not knowing that power was available to them. Once it was established that EVERYONE should have access, people began to see the POTENTIAL that power held, and they IMAGINED new ways for that power to be harnessed, directed toward making the lives of EVERYONE better.
Our Government ensures the flow of POWER for THE PEOPLE.
Un-regulated flow of POWER is dangerous. If not given PROPER OVERSIGHT it can spark flames that can consume entire cities. That’s why great care and attention should be paid to EVERY STEP of the process; from the point of creation, to its distribution, to the utilization of that POWER by the products we’ve created from it… as well as what will BE created from it.
The good realized from an un-regulated flow of power is miniscule compared to what CAN be achieved when that SAME POWER is harnessed and guided under a watchful eye. Today, we CELEBRATE because it’s equally available for ALL, and we’re appalled when we find it’s been withheld from others.
Before the last World War, the impetus for what would eventually become the infrastructure for the electrification of the entire country, came from OUR government. The advancements in the lives of every citizen since have been astonishing, and it begs the question: “Is your life better off NOW than it was 75 YEARS AGO?”
If we spend just a little bit of time NOW, and focus ALL of our passions toward achieving the unthinkable… imagine what could be 75 years FROM now.
Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.
End The Electoral College.
