<<I personally think that we get the government that we deserve. If we don't like it, we can change it. But it's easier to find out what's on TV than to write your Congressperson or go to meetings to make productive change in the system.>>In theory, yes. In practice, it is very tough for regular citizens with no fortune to influence gov't at the fed level. Believe me. I work for a non-profit whose mission is to increase voter turnout. We've been trying for years to get support for ideas that 95% of citizens agree with. We've had limited success with local and state gov'ts, but none on the fed level. I agree that we're here on this board to make the best of what we have. This is a place for pragmatism, but a little idealism never hurts! :-) Also, I want everyone to know that I appreciate the Fool boards very much. I just need to bitch occasionally.Jasonthe Impoverished Fool
