Latest post of the previous page:I appreciate the thoughts - and admit, that I do have a lot to learn. And have learned a lot here, on this site. But how do you multiply it? We've got, what .... I'm guessing 40-60 active posters? I can improve my knowledge and hone my debating skills here, but my circle of influence here, is only 40-60 people. How do we go 'out in the field' so to speak, and really make the effort count?
Not looking for a 10 step process, but think it would be cool if folks would share their stories of how they marched for something, or how they volunteered for a political campaign, or how they got involved in a cause. What inspired you to get involved? What did you feel after you got involved? Did you feel that you accomplished something? How long did you stay involved? Think it would be cool if we could create a repository of these inspirational experiences as it could inspire others to do the same.
As for myself, yes, I consider myself a neophyte....but am not oblivious I am at the bottom of the pack as far as this audience is concerned, but would consider myself more politically astute than 50% of most Americans (yeah, I know, that's a pretty low bar).
My point is, instead of having this post evolve into one where people are defending their political beliefs, I would like to see it become an inspiration where people took their beliefs (what ever they are) and put action behind it ... made a difference - made an impact.
Reading my morning news this morning.....anyone out there participate in something like this? If so, how did you get involved, what was the outcome?
