Volunteer

Today I had some extra time at work and so I decided to go volunteer for the McCain campaign. My super-important duties consisted of doing phone surveys. Yep... I think I pretty much won McCain the presidency single-handedly.

Even though my work wasn't important, I knew that simply getting involved was important. It doesn't matter whether we support Obama or McCain. It doesn't matter if we live in a battle-ground state or not. We should do what we can to participate in our governance. The Constitution, the most fundamental principles of our nation begins.... We the People....

This is what makes this nation great. Not our politicians or our money. The people. We are a nation of nobility and peasant living side by side. The great melting pot of the world. For any American to name their exact heritage is difficult. We're British, German, Irish, Italian, Chinese, Pacific Islander, African, etc.

If we are apathetic and don't do our part, then the sacrifices of our forefathers was for not. Get out and do something for your neighbor, community or country.

Well done, Lucky. You're "walking the talk."
A good example to each of us.

I'm with you: I am officially off the sidelines and in the game. I want to help our country be all that it can and should be as envisioned by our Founding Fathers.
