The power of the people

The problem with American politics today
The government is supposed to derive its power from the people’s will, but the people have essentially given up their authority. Having divided itself into two parties, they no longer hold politicians accountable but blindly follow the sound bites of a few who look to obtain power as long as that individual claims represent their party. While simultaneously taking only a casual interest in truly educating itself on the day’s issues instead, the majority of them allow their opinions to be molded by cable news personalities who profit by espousing the viewpoints of the politician on the side of their preferred viewers.
Inform yourself on the issues
Educate yourself on the options
Hold your representatives accountable.
Take control of the government; it is, after all, your government
