Get Involved

PLEASE, stand up and get involved in both of these political parties. Run for precinct committee chair in 2012, and take control of your chosen party.

In any given community it is just a handful of people who control the local party. On election day the entire party decides who controls the party. Even if you don’t win precinct committee chair, insist the party do the right thing in your local area, in our state, and for our nation.

Do not let these parties do what’s right for their chosen candidate. Make them have open debate. Make them have competitive primaries. Make them play the game for the country not their careers, or monied interests.  If your chosen party doesn’t want you, or you don’t feel comfortable there, do it without a party.

This country is too important for good men and women to stand by idly, while others push this country towards the edge.  We are near the brink.  We know we are not on the right path.

It is possible the GOP has seen the light.  They, however, are not who led us to this point.  The people led the politicians in this election.

The way forward is for “We the People” to lead, and we do it from the ground up.  We do it by taking control of our local parties and make them responsive to the local communities.  It will not be easy, but there is no more worthwhile pursuit, than to responsibly steward our localities and thus our nation in such a way that future generations of Americans can strive for the American dream.

Do not listen to the nay-sayers.  Do not believe you cannot make a difference.  Do not listen to those who say there is nothing we can do.  You can make a difference.

About votescottwise

I love Columbia City. I was born here, spent most of my life in and around Columbia City, and chose to make our community home after college. I want my children and grandchildren to be able to take advantage of what this country and our community have. I am running for Mayor of Columbia City in 2011.
