I am was looking into some different information here and there, and have come to a conclusion that running for some seat in the senate or some kind of government official could be the most positive thing I could ever do for my country. I have always been willing to join the Military if they ever went to a draft, but these days I am not sure that is the best way to make a difference. I have used this SITE for many different discussions over the years and now I hope I am able to get some good information from you all about what would be the best most likely position to get elected for to actually MAKE A DIFERENCE !

Please help in this deliberation, as I am not sure as to where to turn or how to start what I am wanting to do. Although I am super good with people and I have read that is the most hardest thing for people to do is be able to speak with people.

I guess I should have made this THREAD some catchy title to get everyone all ramped up about something. SAD. People don't care enough to put thier thoughts on something that really matter.

Procrastination doesn't accomplish anything, just DO IT if you really want to make a difference.

Okay, first of all, you have not always been willing to join the military if you were waiting on a draft, being drafted is not joining it is more like having to be in the military.

Since I don't know anything about you, I would say you need to take some classes in political science or know a current congressman or senator who could talk at length with you about government.

Being a people person is good for politicians and probably gets them a lot of votes but you need to get involved in stuff like obtaining grants to benefit the people of your area and get your representative or senator to approve of your efforts. Find out what your people want from their local and state governments.

Or...lie, cheat and the rest of the politicians.

First OFF, I would not be drafted, as I am an only born son to carry on my families name, and I am 26 years of age and have a SON. I would not now join the MILITARY but before I would have joined before they had to send me a letter to have me DRAFTED if we went to a draft if my country needs me here I am. Second off, now that I have a 1 week old son, I have started to think really truthfully about how to make a difference the only reason I came to the conclusion of joining a polictical group and really becoming ACTIVE in the government, Although I have always been very interested and opinionated about certain things with friends and family and anyone who really wanted to have a conversation about such things.

THIRD off, Thanks for the information about the senator, and what I would need to get involved in.

AND FORTH AND FINALLY, I am not really interested in what the PEOPLE WANT as people are much like 3 year olds in what they want and what the NEED that is why government was formed in the first place instead of just letting everyone have what they want. It has gotten to the point that everyone WANTS AND WANTS and the people that have taken care of us i.e. MILITARY and Grandparents are getting forgotten about or being given enough expenses to do nothing.
I KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT !!! And what needs to be done and what needs not to be done. Although I know it woudl be nice to be able to HELP every person out there, that cannot and SHOULD NOT be the case. Anyways, I will not get off on a RANT about Healthcare reform and so on but I will say CHANGE is needed. But it is not in giving the government power over healthcare; as they have power over the MILITARY and SOCIAL SECURITY and look at how that is PLAYING OUT. Like I said not going to go there, but there are ways to run a country and things to do that doesn't involve giving total CONTROL to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Each state should have its own addendums to control thier said PEOPLE. Then again they should not be given that much control either. I.E. CALIFORNIA.

ALthough in my OPINION and reminder this is just my opinion. The people REAP WHAT THEY SOW and they got a MOVE ACTOR as a governor; how COOL is that !?!? When they really needed someone to come in and take control and SAVE THEM. They got an ACTOR; enough said.

Okay...I am not going to yell any particular words

First to address your definition of volunteer and draft:

"I have always been willing to join the Military if they ever went to a draft, but these days I am not sure that is the best way to make a difference. "

You did not elaborate on your "son with son" status when you made your first post. What you said was...see above.

In regards to your fourth and final point:

You probably won't get anywhere announcing you want to be czar before the voting begins.

The very best advice I have for you is the following.

Don't be a politician - own one.

Unless you're rich and/or famous, you'll have to start at the bottom.

Become a HOA Nazi or get involved in local politics.
Volunteer in a local race and see how things are done.
You'll need lots of money which will come from like-minded people or people who want to own you.
Running around saying, "I KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT !!! And what needs to be done and what needs not to be done", I don't think will get you too far. Like all politicians, you'll have to get people to vote for you, once you're in you can do "what needs to be done and what needs not to be done"
