New Year! Is "change" here? No, I fear!

Just a suggestion as the new year is underway.If you're not visiting Legistorm,please make use of it.It's a great reference tool for tracking where politicians spend taxpayer money.As they say,it's never been more important than right now to keep close tabs on our Government.It should be every individuals responsibility as an American to hold their elected officials to account.People need to take a more active role in educating themselves.That doesn't mean everyone has to be an activist and march on Washington,just be aware of the process.Politicians certainly are aware of how much they can get away with due to apathy and ignorance.People just want everything to be OK and let someone else worry about it.Or they think they can't do anything about it.I haven't been around long enough to know for sure,but I don't think it's ever been that way.It's just a slow slide of greed that erodes liberty over time.But the tipping point will occur.Can we reverse it and keep it in check?More to come...
