    Re: When’s the last time you actively participated in politics?

    I vote every time I can. Local, regional, national, and EU. If there is no candidate who actually represents my views, then I hold my nose and vote either for the candidate who best fits, or even against the candidate I dislike most. For example, I have never voted Conservative. In the absence of a candidate who shares my views, I have voted for the person most likely to beat a Conservative, even although I don't agree with all of that person's platform.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Got my clock cleaned running for US House of Reps. as a write-in candidate in 2010.

    I participate in Green election campaigns and donate small money occasionally. Always volunteer for the committees where I can be most useful. Sometimes I vote Democrat. Mostly I vote Green. I voted for Nader. I would vote for Ron Paul.
