2020 and 2021 have been very political. President Trump and others have exposed a lot of government corruption, and the general public is fed up. People post on social media pages about how change is needed, but lets face it, Facebook likes and shares have nothing to do with government change. Yeah, it may spread the opinion, but often on social media, people use scare tactics and graphic photos to attract attention. This often causes the readers to get riled up and then the negativity starts… This is not the way to make change people
Change on the Federal Level:
Change on the Federal level is done through the senate and House of representatives. The best way to make change is to vote in the right people. Read up, and do your research. ONLY vote for someone you want for the job. Remember, they work for you.
Change on the State Level:
As far as the Governor, The President, in effect the central government, has the power to remove a Governor at any time without giving him or her any reason, and without granting an opportunity to be heard. However, this power cannot be exercised in an arbitrary, capricious or unreasonable manner. This means the central government has to really have a good reason. In the United States, federal officials can be removed from office before their term is up only by the process known as impeachment. However, state and local officials can be removed from office through a procedure known as a recall. Recalls are typically carried out by special elections called for by voters
When it comes to state laws and ordinances, these are changed through petition. As a citizen of the United States, we all have the right to start a petition to have any elected official removed from office. Our petition will require a certain amount of signatures for it to get on a ballot. Once there are enough verified signatures, then it can be placed on a ballot for vote. Then the people in the affected area vote on the resolve. Yes, it is a process, but that is how things are done. If you want a law to be put on the books, or removed from the books, there is a process for that. Again, you need to start a petition, nothing gets done without signatures.
Change on the County Level:
The Board of Supervisors, pretty much make the county laws and ordinances. You need to vote out supervisors that are making bad choices, and vote in good ones. Write to your supervisor, see if they can help you. Again, go to the county board meetings. You will learn how the board makes decisions.
Change on the City Level:
The best way to make change on the city level, is to get involved. Go to your city council meetings. You will see there how things are getting done in the city. Also, if you want some local change, go to your city council and let them know what your idea of change is. By attending often, you will learn how to present your idea of change in a way that they will listen to you.
Another way to make change is to pay attention to the companies that are paying politicians to promote their agenda. Boycott those companies that are pushing agendas that you disagree with. Money talks people. If you are the only one offended by something a company does, yeah… You boycotting is not going to affect much, but when a company insults a large group of people, those people should take their money elsewhere.
As you can see, the common factor is to get involved if you want to make change. Posting memes and blowing up peoples Facebook Page are not the way to make change. Some changes take a long time. Talk with your children about the issues, so they will make more educated choices when they are old enough to vote.
