Don’t like how your elected officials are voting? Wish candidates would at least speak about issues you work on/deal with every day? Need to see some political will in action?
well you have the opportunity, right now to expand your activism into the electoral arena.
The Green Party ballot line is set up and waiting for people like you to participate in the democratic process.
yes, the system is rigged, and skewed, and gerry-mandered, and full of big bucks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get into the game.
Don’t think you are qualified? Look around you – are you more aware than your elected officials? then my friend, you are totally qualified!!!
what’s in it for you? Well if you are an activist, you will expand your reach into the media, voters guides, candidate forums, etc. and give your community something worth voting for. If you are just an average person, you can still speak truth in these same arenas and be the change you wish to see.
Regardless you will help create the democracy you wish to see. (which we all know doesn’t even exist yet!)
So step up, take a chance, embolden each other.
Another world IS possible, but we have to create it!
