What Happens Every 4 Years?

Here's my question: What happens only every 4 years? Most folks will probably say either the Olympics or our Presidential election. While both answers are true, I want to focus on our elections.

I think it is sad that many Americans only care about politics every 4 years. So much happens in those 4 years that if you are not involved or at least in the know, it can impact you.

Our form of government was never designed to be a spectator sport. Our form of government was designed for we the people to be involved and active in what our elected officials do on our behalf. In the Federalist 22, Alexander Hamilton wrote, "The fabric of American empire ought to rest on the solid basis of THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE. The streams of national power ought to flow from that pure, original fountain of all legitimate authority."

Come on America - get in the game!
