I'm not sure if i'm posting this in the right area as this is my first post, or if a topic like it has already been posted (I didn't find anything)
so if I did either please direct me to the right area / topic. This is also not an attack on any members.
Viewing these boards the past few months I have seen a majority of you talk about how our government officials are no longer representing us, that
they're corrupt, part of certain organizations and taking away our rights while violating our constitution. While i agree with those views I wonder
how many of the members who talk of how our government is betraying us are actually doing something to prevent it.
How many of you go to your local state or county republican, democrat, libertarian, etc party to volunteer or get politically active? How many of you
have considered running for a seat in office? Even if you just run for a local seat in your state assembly have you considered how that could help you
stop laws you disagree with? If you aren't politically active but still preach about how our government is taking liberties (which they are) why
aren't you politically active?
It's clear by the amount of people who visit these boards and for the most part agree with a lot of the topics posted, and that our government is
taking liberties and stripping us of our rights, that if many of you ran for office there would be plenty of support as long as you had a proper
platform. I don't want to hear reasons like the NWO controls everyone who runs because I don't believe that, or there wouldn't be people like Ron
Paul. I want to hear why you do or do not get politically active and hope to hear that some of you have considered running for seats and intend to in
If a lot of us stood up and took seats in office it would be easy to restore our country to what it was, easier to stop these absurd laws such as the
National service bill, from passing. So while I'd love to know your reasons, i'd also like to encourage anyone reading to get politically active as
soon as possible, and definitely consider running for office in the future. We have control, we just need initiative to get things done.
