Your Interests Represented Here

Posted By on Mon, Sep 13, 2010 at 9:34 PM

Why this blog?  Because ignorance is contagious. 

How did we get politicians who advocate for the richest 2% in this country while advising the nation's beleaguered unemployed--in the worst economic recession in 80 years--to simply get some jobs?  Because apathy is contagious, too; particularly the voter variety.

It takes an informed and motivated electorate to fully participate in a democracy.  Without such a citizenry, those who are motivated [read: top 2%] are the only ones whose voices get heard.  Because make no mistake: in our representative democracy, in the absence of an engaged electorate holding their reps accountable, representatives are for sale.  So my modest goal here is to shine a klieg light on the political issues--local, state and national--that affect the other 98% of us.
