Our country is $18 trillion in debt, fighting a war against an enemy our president refuses to acknowledge, and turning to the left faster than a NASCAR driver. The House and Senate are led by unprincipled self-indulging liberals, and almost every good person we elect to DC becomes a turncoat as soon as they see the marble hallways.
Washington DC is a mess, no doubt. Money and time, both limited commodities, are spent in absurd quantity to change the nature of Washington. Nonetheless, the maleficence in DC has become a distraction to conservatives’ quest to ensure the liberties our founding fathers sacrificed for are protected.
Washington DC and its thousands of politicians, lobbyists, and bureaucrats will never effectively be capable of solving our problems. We need to stop misusing time and energy trying to find the next national leader who can save us from ourselves. Instead we need to reallocate the governing authority to lower, smaller, more accessible governments. (Tweet this)
Smaller more localized governments are much more responsive. Our founders knew that the best and most honest government was the government closest to the people. Patrick Henry said “The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.”
The most efficient way to ensure our conservative values are represented in Washington is to make certain they are represented in City Halls(Tweet this), County board rooms, and the State Capitol. If we pursue local issues and candidates with the same enthusiasm we do national ones, we absolutely can make a difference.
