Candidate PoolSubmitted by MikeLawson on Fri, 01/02/2009 - 14:08
Let's assume (and hope) that things don't get so bad that we no longer even have elections and start seriously developing a pool of candidates for office, ANY OFFICE.
If government on all levels is run by sheeple and the corrupted, then it can be healed on all levels with awake, aware people filling the seats of power.
I, Michael Lawson, will run for an elected office (again) in the next 2-4 years and work even more diligently from my post for real change than I ever did before.
Who else will committ to running for office? Don't start listing people you've read about or seen on TV, this is about YOU!
Will YOU committ to running for office, any government office, in the next 2-4 years??
Elections and politics may be worthless BS, but when you are represented, you have a much better chance of waking up far more people and turning the tide. But it's up to YOU. If YOU don't run, you really don't know what you're getting.
The support base here is invaluable. Beyond financial support, other DP members can proofread your literature and any speeches, they can help you find info on innovative ideas to share locally, and they can create a buzz around you that will surely not go unnoticed. There are more members here than voters in the last election I won. You WILL have the support of me and a sea of intelligent,, alert and aware people and YOU will be unbeatable.
