Cause? Effect?

Standard

Can an advocate or “regular” person become an elected official
w/o losing sight of being a public servant? What better person than one that
has seen the different systems work and not work for the people they were
intended for. I have seen a military system for families grow and change for
the better over 14 years, and it was because of advocates fighting for those
changes. I have seen domestic abuse go from “it’s between a couple, we don’t
interfere”, to it being a chargeable offense and publically talked about. This
also, was because of “regular” people.

Over the last year we have heard more and more that there is no way “the
regular people” can win or can change the direction of government. We’ve been
told we will be inefficient as an elected official because we won’t dictated
by the “good of the few”. The idea of making those accountable won’t work
because they have lawyers and congress in their debt. We have heard the words
“can’t” or “you can’t do that” over and over again. It is hard to believe that
my neighbors, our country, have lost hope that emphatically. Our government,
corporate enterprises, media and those our citizens see as “all powerful” must be
held accountable for the effect they have on our nation.

Cause and effect, causality, causation…the negativity of the
world is ruled by this. But what if we were to take cause and effect and put it
to a positive use. Ignore the standards of what can’t be done because the media
says so, or because corporations are too big. What if we were to take cause and
effect to bring about a change in the people you see running for office, a
change in the way we fight “problems” by going after those responsible instead
of making the nation responsible. What if we demanded better representation in
our governments?

There are a growing number of citizens that demand a “government by the people
for the people” type movement.  This type of movement causes responsibility and
participation, and effects humanity and morality. To do this, the advocates,
the “regular” people need to step forward
and enact the cause and effect. It is the only way we will bring our nation
back together.
