What gets people politically motivated?

At our ICRP (Island County Republican Party) meeting tonight a question was asked about what gets people politically motivated. Theories were spoken but basically it comes down to this- when people feel their rights are at stake, they get political. When basic needs are left to dangle in the wind, people get vocal. When they become concerned about a problem, they investigate. I see many issues and ideas that are not addressed. I see the need for good candidates who are committed to serving the public. We must all become involved in politics or nothing will get done. People complain about things all the time, not realizing the power they have to solve the problem. They hold back because they think it ought to be solved by someone else. The "ghost" my kids always blame can not only cause these mysterious problems, but we think he ought to also solve them leaving us free to enjoy the fruits of his labor. Except he is a myth. We are the ghost- creating and solving problems. Maybe we have just become a nation of whiners! Whine, Whine, Whine, but never do! Do we look at our own actions, in the first place, to see if we are part of the problem we are whining about? Do we then see what can be done to help those who are afflicted? Do we reach out to be part of the solutions?I hope we can reach out to others and help solve problems. We will never solve them by continual whining!
