How To Step up

In school we are taught about the men and women that have made a difference in society and the world but yet, we are ourselves are not taught how we too can make a difference. We Americans, live in a country that can achieve so much but are blinded by the advancing technology that consumes our weekly paychecks. As the youth of the country, let alone the world, we need to ask ourselves how we can change the world and make it better. Our country's two main political parties supposedely represent a bit of every American citizen. But where is the American party, a group where the rich are not necessary to have the opportunity to run for office. A party that allows, the average American, the real American, the opportunity to make things right, to step up and make a difference? That party is within all of us, but is pushed aside by the idea that "I am only one person, what can I do?" All it takes is one person to make a difference in the world, if your point is well received you will receive support. As the saying goes, Rome was not built overnight. It takes time to make a difference, to better the lives of not only American citizens but people all over the world. The basic principles of respect, honesty and perserverance can help you achieve the strongest of your goals. Together, our baby steps and small acts of kindness can change the world for the better.

I am 26, from the UK, and I think I will NEVER live to see the day, when a REAL person of the people, rises to the role of Priminister or President in the UK or US. Surely we need someone in power who actually knows whats going on beyond the walls of their PRIVATE EXPENSIVE Education, where they are basically TOLD what is good for us, and what is bad. I believe the best education, is the education of life. Yes we all need to learn to read and write, do math etc. But the MAJORITY of people in EVERY country live below the so called WEALTHY, or UPPER CLASS line. And in the 3rd World countrys the VAST MAJORITY live below the poverty line. We need REAL leaders with REAL life experience to take us forward.

its not really expected for an honest person or by what vellam said, REAL, because politics is a dirty job. if you dont do some things, you get eaten alive. i think the only way there will ever be a peaceful agreement between politics and the rest of the world, is if the world is about to end, and there is nothing left to fight for. unfortunately, even if you do get enough people to try to change the world, there will always be killings, violence, guns, and politics. its just a thing thats there to stay, and is near impossible to fix

Lets start with prison food, school lunch programs, and food stamps. Our medicaid is struggling under the weight of bad nutrition, our government is putting mass quantities of money that we dont have into corporate pockets. I suggest the government create a network of farms, vegetable farms can provide feed for live stock and fish farmers, and in turn receive manure, emulsions, and bone meals. The farms will grow what ever does well in the region, or what is needed from it. The farms should be ran independently by experienced, accredited farmers who have applied to run one. The farms would freeze their products, and sell them to the government by weight at a cost far less than retail, or even wholsale would be. With all of the farm hands neccacary to run the farms, and all the truckers needed to ship the products, it would be sure to create jobs, and put the money into different communitys rather than into corporate pockets. Keep in mind that these farms will only provide food for government food programs, this is the government taking care of itself and in no way infringes upon the free market. people on food stamps would need receive only a fraction of the food credit of before, as meat, cheese, and produce would be provided by the farms. this would also insure that these families are eating healthly (giving medicaid little brake) And who wants their kids eating unnutritious low quality foods? I know its not a good idea to have corporations profit off prisoners, lest rehabilitation become secondary.
