How to...

Change.  

Not many people enjoy it.  Mostly because it means finding a different way to do something.  But in the long run, change is usually a good thing...  

I want to change some things.  

I want to change myself.  I want to change my country.  I want to change the world.  

I want to change teacher's unions, lobbying, politics (including politicians), our economy, our fuel dependency, our environmental neglect, corporate welfare, and farm subsidies.  

I want to change our foreign policies and our domestic ones.  I want to change the way our education dollars are spent... and our medical ones.  I want to change the way people see their value in society.  I want to change people's spending habits.  I want to change the way we view child care givers, including stay at home moms.  

I want to change the fact that people with money get everything for free and people who are living paycheck to paycheck, pay for all.  I want to change that a person needs millions of dollars to be a serious politician.  I want to change the rules.   

I want to change this image we have that we are the greatest country, and make it real.  It is not real, you know.  I want to change the belief that our way is the only way.  It's not about winning or losing, its about doing what is right.   

I want to change this idea that the more new stuff we have, the better we are.  The more debt we accumulate, the more we own.  You do not own it if you still make payments.  

I want to know how to do all this....

I wish I could tell you how to do it but I have no idea!  You have WONDERFUL ideas and every one of them are deserving of change!  I hope that the people with the money see that these things need to be changed and DO IT.  
Hugs,
Colleen

I'm where you are at the moment. I made a mental list of a bunch of things that need fixin'. And I fully intend to work on them as soon as I find the instructions sheet. I wonder if we should pool our resources...
