Apathy is the playpen of the devil.
If you think you don’t have time to pay attention to politics, you are contributing to the demise of this country. Don’t just blame the corrupt politician; somehow s/he got elected by the people.
If you think you can’t change anything, it’s for damn sure you won’t.
If you think things need to change for the better, the only way to start on that path is to educate yourself and vote.
If you are the disenfranchised, you absolutely need to do something! Don’t waste your voice; stand for something, write something, and get out and vote!
