And just as true today as it was then.

^^ THIS^^

The past months have convinced me that much of our national problem is that good, decent people don't want to get into the mess and hassle of local politics.  School boards are the biggest example.  I just want to enjoy my life and family, avoid hassle, and use my free time to work and play without government intrusion.  I don't want the added nuisance and hassle of board meetings, disagreements, ugly accusations and responsibility that comes with school board, county supervisor, city council, etc.  So the people with an agenda take those positions, most of them leftists. 

Case in point:  a wealthy couple recently moved here from California, no kids, retired.  In our election two weeks ago, she ran for local school board, UNOPPOSED!  My boys, DIL, myself, and many of my friends are far better qualified, know this area, have kids in the system, etc. and none of us want the hassle and responsibility of being on the school board.  It looked to me like half of the candidates for city and county offices were recently moved here from Seattle or California.  So, we get people from San Francisco telling us the rules we have to live by.

Not sure what to do because I DON'T want to run for office, yet mere talk is not going to cut it.

 If you are not willing to run or get behind the person you feel is right for the job and support him/her 100% then you are also part of the problem.  However, a .308 will also work.
