In America, we can do something about it

"What can I do about it?"

How often have you heard that from a friend or neighbor or family member? You may have been discussing local government, state government, federal government, Common Core, public/private school systems. We all feel somehow incapable of doing anything that will be effective.

We're besieged with so-called "facts" brought to us from right and left. What's true? What's false? What's twisted? What should we choose to believe?

The Internet gives you information based on historical "facts" (If it really happened, its results were measured, and the results are clear). We have become two generations of people who have been "propagandized into believing what is often not the truth."

Election Day is coming. We can support those who promise to tell us the truth whether we want to hear it or not. We can look for candidates who are honest, who know and care about the people they're planning to represent, who stand for things we believe in, and oppose the things we oppose.

"What can I do about it?" You can make the time to learn the facts for yourself, get to know candidates and their positions, then find the time to do something for you and your family.

You can go and vote!
