Response to H2O Man (Original post)

Wed Oct 22, 2014, 06:29 PM

29. I am far more interested in our local elections now, than I used to be. I used to focus on the

national elections. The 'us' v 'them' 'our team' v 'their team' stuff. But now we've seen it all play out at that national level, I realize finally that it is our fault for not BUILDING the blocks that might have made a difference at that national level.

So this election season, I am way, way more interested for the first time, I hate to admit, in what happens right here in our county/state and hoping we can begin the process of producing candidates who, IF, they eventually get to DC, will never become tools of Corporate America.

It's going to be a long, long process, and we've started a bit late, but better late than never. One thing I know, the lack of faith in the system voters now have is REAL. And those who try to dismiss it, are not to be trusted imho.

Thanks for the OP. It has become clear that we have been wrong to think that just voting in national elections was enough. Which we have now learned.
