Knock yourself out

If politics interests you go ahead, I agree that Ron Paul having the national bully pulpit was an eye opener to many. If you can stomach the people that you have to associate with in politics more power to you.

The most powerful way to change society is to educate enough people to just say no. The percentage needed is much smaller than the 20% or 30% needed to win the presidency.

Samuel Adams: (paraphrase)
Ignite brushfires of liberty in the minds of men

More people did not vote than voted for the winner of the presidency. What is needed is to activate enough of these maybe 5% of the voting age population to just say no.

THE POLITICS OF
OBEDIENCE:
THE DISCOURSE OF
VOLUNTARY
SERVITUDE
By Etienne de La Boetie

quote from the essay

Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I
do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple
him over, but simply that you support him no longer;
then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose
pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight
and break in pieces
