Get involved in Politics at all levels
Contrary to common belief, Politics has great Return on the Investment in time and effort you put in. The rewards are not direct but indirect.
There is a saying: Politics is too important to be left to Politicians.
Don't let Politicians decide our destiny. Don't let them put constraints on us, divide us, over-tax us, distract us, and sell out all of us.
Above all, don't let them tell us that 'it can't be changed', or 'it is the law'. It is their job to change the law. If they make excuses or delay, tell them to step aside and let someone competent and honest do it for us.
Everyone of us can be involved in local and national politics to ensure pressure is kept on the Politicians to deliver. Not everyone is expected to rise to a Cabinet or Congress position. However, all of us can be involved to whatever level we can.
