People spend more time and energy these days trying to avoid politics than it would actually take to pay attention and be informed on them. On one hand, who can blame them? Politics have become nothing more than a ridiculous power struggle, culminating with people pointing fingers and placing blame on everyone but themselves. It’s hard to trust politicians and it’s hard to vote for most of them. However, on the other hand, people who avoid politics are avoiding something MUCH deeper… the future. Most people don’t realize that by not doing their due diligence and studying the issues and where the candidates stand on them, they are actually putting their lives, their children’s lives, and their grandchildren’s lives in someone else’s hands. If you don’t vote, don’t complain!
If you do vote and you do complain, get more involved! We are SICK and TIRED of the corrupt public officials that too many of us have in office. HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE! Go to your local school board meetings and town council meetings! Listen and witness for yourself what’s going on, and what isn’t going on that should be! SPEAK UP! Too many of us think we don’t have a voice. WE DO! Too many of us think we can’t make a difference. WE CAN! Do YOUR DUTY and TAKE A STAND! BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
