Moved to the Locker Room....that's where we keep our non-football related topics for future reference. Thanks!

That's an excellent article, I wrote an email for my friends and family after the shootings and pretty much said the same things. I'm a veteran and watching what's been going on in this country since 9/11 has made me sick. Does the Bill of Rights even exist anymore? For years my inbox filled up with jokes, bitches and complaints from people that have done absolutely nothing for this country, and yet speak like they actually know what they are talking about. If you hate something about this country, I guarantee you that there are 100,000's of people that agree with you and are working in a positive and non-divisive way to fix the problem. Instead of sitting behind your computers spreading hate with a click of a button, get off your asses and do something about it.

Our founding fathers demanded that we remain active in our countries success, and yet we allow ourselves and our country's reputation around the world to be tarnished out of shear laziness. From the baby boomer generation forward, there is this entitled attitude that we don't have to do anything for our freedom and that we are the greatest country in the world (voting once every 4 years for a R or a D doesn't count). Well guess what folks, we're not and it's our lazy apathetic attitude as the reason why we're not anymore. If any positive is to come from this tragedy, let it be that the American people wake the F*** up and start taking some responsibility for the state of our union. Next time you want to tell a joke making fun of the right or the left, do me a favor stand up and look in the mirror and ask yourself, "What have I done to make this country better?" If the answer is nothing, just keep your mouth shut. Looking at how many people vote and serve in the military, I'm guessing the political rhetoric would go completely silent. Just think then you might actually have enough time to at least look up some info on the drones you keeping voting into office.

I think the internet is largely designed for bitching and moaning about national and international politics. And, let's face it, the two major parties have that locked up nice and tight and completely out of public control. There's no point in doing anything but bitching and moaning.

To your point, Cali, local activism is where it's at. Going to city council, PTA water board meetings, etc... these things should be a part of everyone's weekly calendar.

And always vote third party. Always.

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.
