Re: Theos-World TS members’ power

Well said. It is up to the members to wake up and realize that if we are
passive and do not do nothing, we would lose our power. What the elected
leaders are trying to do is to consolidate their power so that they can do
whatever they want in the future and if the changes go through, there is no
way to stop it. It is now or never. Let us all mobilize and contact our
elected representatives and tell them that what they are trying to do is not
acceptable and they should openly come out and tell the public that they are
against it.
