I recently read an editorial in my community newspaper about how some local politicians do not act in accordance with the wishes of the community. I'm sure we've all felt that way at one time or another.
There is no excuse to not have your voice heard. Every elected official has an email or a toll free number to call. I see people everyday yakking on their cell phone, thumbing through messages on their BlackBerry every chance they get about who knows what. Loads of people are complaining they don't have time do anything let alone be involved in their community. Well, take 5 minutes while you're walking around the grocery store or idling your car needlessly in front of it and call your local politician or send them an email and let them know what you think. With the technology we have today we are at the closest point in human history to participative democracy. That requires some of you to participate. It won't take to much of your time and maybe things can change for the better.
