Lately all I have been seeing in the political articles is about how there are so many seats coming up for election next year and I am wishing I was qualified to run for and win a seat as a congresswoman. There are so many things I feel need to be viewed differently in our country and wish that I could be a bigger part of the change than just my vote.
In NYS we struggle with the politics in the country. I live in Rochester, NY which is called part of Upstate NY and we have good voter turnouts typically but will NEVER be heard. According to things I have read about 64% of NYS population lives in NYC which gives NYC residents the majority vote on ALL NYS laws and political choices.
I think this is total bunk… but how does a single person change this? I don’t have the background, academics, or mouth to run for elected office although as of late I really wish I did! I would love to run for office and win even if I didn’t get the enormous pay that the elected officials typically get. I actually want to run on principle.
Wishes, wishes, wishes…
