Power to the People Cos Sometimes the Only Answer Is a Revolution

A few thousand sleeping giants have awakened; where we were once snuggled into eight-hundred thread count sheets and fluffy duvets, drinking our ginger-kale smoothies on the way to yoga or an awesome surf sesh, we are WIDE AWAKE.This is democracy in action.Weve come together as one voice, a tribe of local citizens who sayNO F***ING WAY.Its time for a change.Its time for a REVOLUTION.Power to the people.ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.I have never been more proud to live here.

All the Davids took on Goliath and we WON.What am I talking about?In my not-so-little-anymore coastal town of Carlsbad, a mega-developer (Rick Caruso, father of the debate hot guy who really isnt very hot, but whatever.) who owns a mega-yacht tried to work his way around the normal processes for development (with the blessing of our mayor and city council) to build a mega-mall on Agua Hedionda Lagoon.

Agua Hedionda is a sensitive ecosystem that feeds into the Pacific Ocean.Read more HERE Im not impressed by men in fancy suits with fake tans.And HERE: Something Sorta Stinks in CarlsbadSimply put, one does not build a mega-mall on a lagoon.

No matter how much I love to shop at Nordstrom, NO WAY.A movement was born to fight the onslaught of questionable tactics and democratic processes that had been subverted while dozens of citizen volunteers stepped up to spread out throughout the city from dawn to dusk to acquire signatures for a referendum to overturn the Caruso initiative and put to a vote OF THE PEOPLE.On Thursday, we met in the library parking lot and marched as a group to Carlsbad City Hall to deliver boxes and boxes of signed petitions.

We were stalked the whole way by Caruso goons and his campaign lawyer that guy lurking behind the fence in the black suit and mirrored sunglasses.It was a moment Ill never forget when one of our leaders announced the tally; more than nine thousand signatures, well above the sixty-five hundred needed (ten percent of the registered voters.)Strong arm tactics and million dollar TV and print ad campaigns didnt deter our citizen warriors.

WE DID NOT GIVE UPWE WILL NOT GIVE UPWE ARE STRONGWE ARE CARLSBAD STRONGThe collective whoops and yells were caught on video. This is one of many, and much thanks to one of my sons best friends, Bryan Snyder: local TV: cbs8.
