Research. Network. Support. Vote. How are all of those related to wartime tactics?
Have you ever heard the term that complacency kills? If you haven't, think of it this way:
When an individual gets comfortable, they are not motivated to move. As a result, they don't take action when they should and horrible things happen that very easily could have been avoided.
For an example, take voting. If you don't take the time to research, support and vote for everyone that you have power to, you end up with people in office that not only do a horrible job, but intentionally destroy the country and rape your rights.
Likewise, you can grow your network by seeking out and working with those locally campaigning for office that you feel would do the job the best.
You see, it is one thing to read about someone. It is something totally different to step out of your bubble and make a point to meet them. This enables you to see through the words and look at the actions. How better to judge a person's credibility than to spend time with them?
If every individual on the planet knew the power of ONE voice, our world would be completely different.
You don't have to have money to support those in office that you feel would be great for your community/country. There are numberless ways that you can volunteer your time and abilities to help with their campaign.
And honestly, when it boils down to it, just opening your mouth a few times helps more than anything else ever could. Just ask any small business owner (if you aren't one yourself.) Word of mouth goes farther than ANY ad ever could.
If you haven't seen already how this can impact a war, let me share with you a few quick points.
1. War can be avoided when you do your part to make sure the right people end up in positions of authority.
2. When there is corruption in the government and there is nothing more that you can do to stop it, that network that you've built can help unite your community so that you can fight back. ONE MAN ALONE CAN'T FIGHT TYRANNY.
Volunteer Security Services
The other day I volunteered my time to support Mr. Jackson in is campaign for sheriff.
He has been in several local parades and I've been taking my protection star, Athena with me to offer my services for security in the parades. Furthermore, it helps Mr. Jackson show his desire for making our county a safer place.
I met Mr. Jackson several years ago when I heard that he was running for office. I made a special point to meet him because he seemed like the right guy to vote for but I wanted to be sure.
Subsequently, we've become quick friends. It took me no time at all to feel confident that he was the right person to vote for simply by talking to him.
Do you part. Research the right candidates and grow your network. You'd be surprised how quickly strong and powerful alliances can grow from something that seems small and insignificant.
So here is my voice. If you live near me, vote John David Jackson for Sheriff and please share this post to encourage others to do so as well.
