Just browsing the DP and this caught my attention on the side bar merely by coincidence.
My new motto, "Go LOCAL!" That doesn't mean "Local" as in Agenda 21 or Plan Maryland or supporting local merchants or local produce. It means getting involved locally with your lowest levels of government where "YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!"
Make this your New Year's Resolution and start today.
1. Identify local county council person and other members of the County Council. (Every person on the DP should know this information.)
2. Identify your locally elected Republican Central Committee members. (Ditto -- you should know this.)
3. Identify your locally elected school board members. (Same -- your tax dollars are paying for the education/indoctrination our future voters are receiving.)
3. Determine when these three meet and mark your calendar for 2013. GO TO THE MEETINGS. Stand up and speak. You will encourage and inspire others. Go have a beer afterwards with some like-minded friends.
4. Start studying your County's budget.
5. Write to your local elected officials. Comment wherever you can on local news sources.
6. Raise awareness especially when it comes to education and what the kids are learning. There is too much focus on grades and not enough on content. We need to take stock in what these kids are being taught.
6. Contact Maryland Liberty PAC and start your own group.
7. Run for office. Start small when running for office and shoot for Central Committee first -- something that is attainable.
Reorganize your life to get informed and involved. Be a part of Ron Paul's legacy and get off the couch. 24/7 you are either contributing or contaminating to the cause of liberty. "Doing nothing" = contamination.
Don't burn out. Keep family and liberty balanced.
Most important, have fun!
