Do We Want Change?

Do we want change in this country? Do we want to get out of Iraq, where we shouldn't have been in the first place? Do we want policies across the board that reflect our best interests? Do we want support for President Obama?

If you answer yes to these questions, you might need to step up to be the "ones we have been waiting for."

President Obama will need a congress that supports the policies he wants to enact--policies that support the average American's interests over the corporate leviathan that Washington has been feeding for decades. If Obama hopes to get anything done, he'll need support. That can come by electing Democrats across the board in every state. To do that, the Democratic National Committee has put out a plea for contributions. Not only that, the DNC is listening to Obama's call for change in how it raises money itself, just as his campaign did in such a huge revolutionary way.

Obama is asking the DNC to not accept lobbyist! If this comes to pass, how would that change the political landscape in Washington? Would there be less corporate influence? Yes. Would politicians be more accountable to their constituents? Yes. Would policy revolve around our shared interests? Yes. Remember Abraham Lincoln's, "A government by the people, of the people and for the people." This is still what we want here, right?

If we want change, we need to step up ourselves. Put your money where your mouth is. Do you want to end the war? Give. Do you want to have cleaner, aggressive energy policies? Give. Do you want reasonable judges on the Supreme Court? Give. Do you want America to have a positive influence all over the world? Give.

You know what is wonderful in light of the compact? If you're spending less money on stuff, you have more money to give to causes and groups and people who need it badly. Cool, huh?

Give some change, to get some change.
