On Fire...

You wanna know what lights my fire?...

POLITICS!!!!!
Nothing irritates me more than when people sit around and bitch about what is happening to our country, but yet they won't do anything about it!!!
What people need to realize is that you CAN'T fix anything on a national level until we fix the problems on a LOCAL level!!
SO...
before you start your ridiculous complaining ask yourself...
"When was the last time I actually went to a local board meeting?"
"When was the last time I donated money to a good candidate or to the politcal party I belong to?"
"When was the last time I actually contacted one of our local/state political leaders and questioned them about their voting record?"
"When was the last time I actually attended a political forum to meet the candidates?"
and most importantly...
"When was the last time I considered running for a local/state position?)
BOTTOM LINE...
If you are NOT willing to participate and do your part...
SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!!!!!

I have done several and so I do have a right!!! I am PISSED too! I could not be more sick of how our country is being run and I am nervous of how it will affect our future!
If people don't know what to do, people for sure need to get out and vote in November to get some of the yahoos out of office!

p.s. I have recently talked to one of my lds friends (who voted for B. Hussein O.) and I think she got an earful but is very receptive:)

EXACTLY PEOPLE!!! I know we all have our busy lives, blah, blah, blah, but really how hard it it to write up a little letter, make a phone call, volunteer your time at a call or mailing center {its actually quite fun!!}, or even be familiar with the facts of the issues around us! Sometimes I want to be blissfully ignorant, but Tiff you'll love this... "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was, and never will be." {Can't remember who said that... I will have to look it up!}THANK YOU so much for your post! I wish more people would actually live like this! Too many people just don't care! Grrrr!!!!
