    I went to Halloween dressed as the Empire State Building once. Even brought King Kong along.

    Ok, let’s try a dose of reality. Who do you propose to put in their place? And if your answer is “no one”, then what do you propose for our system of government?

    I think in this case, it’s you pay for what you get.
    Maybe this is Homeland Securities idea to make the castle more impregnable.

    I don’t know if you’ll see this, but you’ve put a lot into engaging in the US political system. I think that’s laudable and I hope you don’t give up. It is difficult when the media is so biased. I see that here in both directions. I suppose that’s better in a way because you always have an outlet. As Pollyanna as this sounds, change can happen, but it takes time, a lot of hard work, and building good relationships. Good luck!

    Hippogriff, I applaud your care and passion. The Texas BoE is particularly difficult because it’s a state-wide office and it’s a very politicized board. Have you found like-minded people you can work with? Are there lower level boards or positions that would allow you to work your way up?

    My state (MA) has local Boards of Ed and I’ve been on my town’s for nearly 9 yrs. It’s a much lower bar.

    The items in that list I spewed are some of the different ways you can try to make a difference. Except for voting, none of them is necessarily easy and even I haven’t done everything on it. That doesn’t mean they’re not worth trying.

    I hope you don’t give up.

    So those of you who are complaining about how your taxes are collected and spent, when did you last vote? When did you last run for office? When did you last talk to a local, state, or federal representative? When did you last show up at a local , state, or federal government hearing and testify? All of these actions are your constitutionally protected rights and allow you to influence your governments actions. If your answer is, “I haven’t even voted”, I’m personally not interested in hearing what you have to say.
