Prepping, Politics & Patriots – You Need to Get Active

What does Politics & Patriotism & Prepping have to do with YOU & Why do you need to pay attention to any of it?

To some the connection is quite clear to others not so much.

I would hope that you are in fact registered to vote & actually do so every campaign & town budget.
Failure to vote means that you are part of the problem that you might be complaining about – especially at the local level where your vote counts the most.

Do you know who your state level elected officials are?
When was the last time you paid attention to what they were in fact planning to pass in the way of laws?
Have you spoken up to your elected officials at the state level by either writing a letter or sending an email or making a phone call?
When was the last time that you actually went up to the state capitol to voice your opinion at a state hearing on a bill?

We have the most voice at the local level.
You may live in a state that has a state capitol that is far away but your town hall is in your town & you should at least get up there a few times a year.

The laws that your elected officials affects your lives on all levels – you should at least know what is going on in your town, state level government levels.
We may not have a voice at the federal level other than to vote every 6 years for a Senator & every 4 for President but it is quite different at the State & Local levels.

You need to speak up to your town & state level elected officials & that is where change can & will be made

Pay attention because what your elected officials are doing raises your taxes & changes laws that may affect your Constitutional Rights or even your ability to grow your own food
If you prep but keep your head in the sand & keep silent are you any better than the “sheeple” so often made fun of in the professional prepping websites & blogs?

This year the blogging got put to the wayside as I got up off my duff & ran for office
That was quite an “interesting” experience to say the least
