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

    When’s the last time you actively participated in politics? For the purposes of this discussion, please exclude things like on-line debate, over-a-beer debate, on-line petitions, etc. I'm talking about time served for the masses. Please select all that apply.

    I'd also like to hear something about what you did, if you're willing.

    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

    I vote occasionally. Aside from that, I've never participated in politics.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I always vote but since I almost never find any candidate I can endorse, that's all.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

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

    I find most instances to participate, per the options listed, unethical and/or immoral and/or useless.
    So I don't.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I work for the government overseas. Sometimes I wish I didn't.

    I just turned 18 so I haven't voted yet. I plan on doing so whenever possible, though.

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

    I am unable to participate in politics because of a legal conflict of interest.

    I picked this one but it's not 100% accurate. My wife's job is at the will of the mayor so it's best for me to stay on the sidelines.

    I vote every election. I am a volunteer at the moment and I lead the county leader for volunteers right now.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
