Well uh I do...haha
It saddens me how inactive people are in their own rights. Most people drift through life and let these people stomp all over their rights. I see people all the time complaining about our president and such, yet 1/20 will actually do anything about it. The first question I ask someone if they are complaining about the president to me is did they vote? Did you even take advantage of the right that was one of the founding principles of this country. While in its original state only white land-owning men could vote, people have fought hard and even died to get equal voting rights. Back to the point, most people just sit here and complain about what Bush has done wrong (most of the time problems that are completely unrelated to Bush ie Katrina, Global Warming, Inflation, etc.) yet they do absolutely nothing about it. They don't know who their senators are, in fact, take a step back...how many of you reading this right now actually know the senators and political members who represent your area? We can say the government is corrupt all we want, but it won't do a god damn thing. We can complain and complain, but it won't change anything. Politicians will still use the same sneaky tactics that have been used for decades and the US population is still too ignorant to see.
How can we get around this? How can one person help? How can we change the way this country is headed?
Read, read, read. Understand the issues that are going on. Form an opinion instead of having one spoon fed to you. Find out who your congressman is and send them a letter. While they may not read all of it, they definitely read the basic ideas. Politicians don't like to receive letters that go against their current policies. Sure one letter won't change their actions, but if you tell someone and get them interested enough, they tell another person and soon you have a large group of people willing to make a statement.
Americans and Canadians both need to wake the fuck up and realize politicians OWN YOU until you do something about it. For your own future, take 5 minutes out of the day and just glance at a newspaper. Hell, go to a news website and just look at the titles. Just find out what's going on, the articles may be slanted, but they give you a general consensus of what is happening. Form your own opinions and vote accordingly. I don't want to see a generation screwed over because of ignorance.
