I Believe That If We Don’t Participate In Changing Our Government Nothing Will Ever Change

One thing I have always noticed about the way politics work in this country is that everyone gets all “Gung Ho” at election time and then after the election is over all of the principals we all said we believed in and would support fall by the wayside. I find this very depressing. We elect someone to be our leader and then don’t help. Then after we don’t help we complain that he couldn’t save the world, does anybody really believe one man can change everything all by himself? If they do they are amazingly delusional, no one man has that power, do we really think we elected God? I don’t think so. So why do we think a president can do what God hasn’t done for our country? It takes all of the villages to build a “good world” and that will never be a perfect world because perfection is most likely impossible, but wouldn’t f***ing near perfect be a wonderful thing to achieve if we would all put our collective energies into doing so? This is my hope and my dreams for this country and the world. It seems to me that it shouldn’t be impossible if everyone cared and everyone tried to make this world the best it can be!

  1. A president certainly can’t change “politics as usual.” That’s one of the beautiful things about our government. No one person can control it. A solution to the problem is to teach citizenship in school.
