The Morning After

Standard

I’ve stayed out politics, but I have to say this. Congratulations to all of those who ran. It was a hard-fought battle and you have made the democratic process stronger by bringing your ideas and engaging in meaningful discussions – you should be proud.

The election is over and we need to move on. If your candidate didn’t win don’t sit back and complain for the next 4 years. Get out there and make a difference! Call your elected officials and tell them where you stand on issues. Get informed on the issues from the source and not the media (social or otherwise) and let your representatives know how you feel. Support organizations that believe what you believe in. Create an organization to bring the change you wanted to see in your community. It can start with you.

If you candidate won don’t sit back and cheer for the next 4 years. Get out there and make a difference! Call your elected officials and tell them where you stand on issues.

Like it or not we are all in this together. Democracy is not a spectator sports my friends. Get involved and stay involved. Bitching on Facebook or Twitter doesn’t bring change in red or blue states. Working together brings change to the UNITED STATES.
