Whenever I talk to people about politics, it tends to focus on what they don’t like about our government. People on the right or left both have issues that upset them, and one major complaint I hear is about how dysfunctional our Congress has been in the last few years. The weird thing is, most people who say this are resigned to the dysfunction. They don’t think they can change it, and they don’t do anything to try. Obviously, they can’t just change the constitution or kick all congressmen out of office. But regardless of what your politics are, you can try to implement them by voting or volunteering. If you’re going to complain, then you should actually do something. Just because the status quo is pretty depressing doesn’t mean you should avoid thinking about the situation altogether. If you want things to get better, then you have to play a part.
