Quote of the Day: Doing Something.

This one comes from Robb Allen:

 ...I don’t want to hear it any more from either side. You want to stop the government from doing things you don’t like, stop giving them the power to do it. Sure, life would be all peaches and unicorns if we could stop the gays from marrying / provide free medical care / send every child to Disney World / ad nauseam, ad infinitum. But if you truly believe in something, then get out there and do it yourself. Stop believing that simply walking into a voting booth once every few years and punching the X for “your team” is all that’s required to get shit done. Because each time you tell a misrepresentative that yes, you would like them to be able to control the other side, eventually that other side gets their turn on The Levers of Making You Do Shit.

Yep, what he said.  RTWT
