Re: The Little Girl Killed in Arizona: Your Fault. and Mine
You are dead on right sir. Starting locally is where the change can happen and where we need to start. Imagine if everyone was fully engaged in their local governments and NGO's, eventually that attitude would carry to the state and federal levels and we could fix our broken republic. Politicians have no financial incentive to change their ways, so unless we do it for them nothing will change. I'm not a fatalist - yet -although I'm leaning a little more that way after this weekend.
Vote 3rd party, 4th party, 5th party...however many parties it takes. Know who you are voting for, and know who is funding their campaigns. When you hear one say they are funded from a grassroots effort...pull back the grass and check the roots.
