All Politics is Local

American Protesters! We hear you; none of us want to live in an authoritarian police state. Now go home and do what you are doing THERE! You live in a representative, constitutional republic and there is no more freedom under any other system. I guaran-damn-tee you that if you put this energy into your LOCAL city, county and state governance and elections and HOLD ACCOUNTABLE your elected representatives, you will have an impact....this is the app for achieving lasting and meaningful improvement. The people have the final say and the buck ultimately stops with us. So go home, go to church, go back to work and use the app.
Here is just one example on HOW some have made an impact, picture is from this post: https://www.ocalapost.com/entire-county-board-arrested-following-citizens-arrest-by-2-military-veterans/
