Are we Whiners or Solvers?

By MoMnmb
We need to be involved in political life. We are in control of our laws and policies by electing representatives and making our voices heard. Our founders were wise to allow us the chance to vote for our own leaders. It forced us to be accountable for them. When we vote we become responsible. Our support is desperately needed to make sure politicians stay on the same page as the citizens they represent. Our elected officials and political parties need our participation in order to work effectively. An effective political party will force politicians to respond to the needs of citizens.
Call up the political parties, what ever your persuasion is. Try out a variety until you find a good fit. Leave them a message if you have to. They work at regular jobs too. Be patient. Be helpful. Be pro-active. Take some initiative in making your community what you envision it to be. I have found since becoming active in party politics that far from the popular perception of a bunch of corrupt power-mongers, they are full of sincere people who want to help their communities be successful. They are people who work tirelessly, and often without thanks, on behalf of the whining populace who would rather be an arm-chair quarterback than become involved in solving the problems he complains about. When we have a stake in an issue we can responsibly seek out ways to become more educated and we can then see logical remedies. Do we like complaining more than solving?
We will be electing a new President in 2008. Political parties need help now. Getting involved now will help determine who is running in 2008. It may seem early, but the early bird gets his worm.
