You can also start grassroots movements, use the internet (it is a level playing field) for support of your ideas and ideals, and heres the big one:
Run for office yourself.
Even if its city council or mayor, its getting in the system and being able to effect change.
Why is it people whom complain about "the man" never decide to go and make changes anyhow...the answer is, they do. Almost every person you see in
an elected office was a person whom felt passionately (at least at one point) about the country they live in and certain ideals..they made it their
life to try and effect change.
Now, some lost that love and now just stick in it for the power/bribes/a steady paycheck, and those are the ones that need to be voted out.
So, if you truely are fed up with how things are, and want to revolt...get those banners ready and start your campaign for office, local or
otherwise...or find someone whom you do believe in and help him/her out to get office.
Otherwise, what you wrote of voting and sending letters, well, thats all you can do...oh, and of course yack about it on forums on the internet if
that makes you feel better.
