Clichés are clichés because they express obvious or Universal Truths.
There are two sayings in Politics that I am certain are familiar to all of us.
One person can not make a difference,
All politics are Local.
The first we are continuously told.
The second is an Article of Faith in the Political World.
The reasons for that dichotomy should be obvious, we have power that they do not wish us to realize.
Recent events have proven to me that one person, what they think, do, say, write, can institute change,
Maybe not in the entire system, but in the way people think.
When one person says what others are thinking, people realize that they are not alone in their thoughts, and that together, they DO have a power to initiate Change.
Now it is true that we here on the Local Level can not change the entire system,
But we CAN change what happens in our neighborhood and act as examples to people elsewhere.
When enough neighborhoods take control of their destiny on the Local Level, then the entire system WILL change.
I have presented to Linn County Iowa, the idea that there are things we need to change,
There HAS been a response, People HAVE been listening or rather reading. I can tell that by my server logs.
So we must gather together to address the problems in our neighborhood,
Those of you from elsewhere are responsible for your neighborhoods and your own destiny.
We all change our own backyards for the better, everything change.
Baby steps to start, when we have our side of the street cleaned, then we can move on to the District, State and National Level.
Just remember that bit about one person not being able to make a difference?
Is a LIE.
