You are not powerless, you can effect change.
But not by sitting on the couch hoping some politician will do it for you.
Put a different way: YOU have to make change.
But how? By writing your congressman?
Give me a break.
Knocking doors for a candidate you believe in? Okay, that’s a great thing to do.
But take Congress. Puh-lease. Even if you find a solid congressional candidate, and your candidate wins, and even if she or he stays true to principles, you’ll have helped change 1/435th of that lawmaking body.
