Currently, people across the nation are expressing their frustration with the political nonsense going on in Washington. There are several hot-button issues, including the government shutdown, the debt-ceiling limit, the lack of a federal budget, Obamacare and our foreign policy. However, what we have yet to do as a nation is come up with an effective way to address the problems we face.

Regardless of the issues, the blame for the problem lies with us, the American public, not with either major party. We the people have allowed the political process to become corrupt, and because of this, no honorable person who has the best interests of America in mind will participate. Instead, we continue to put in office the same self-serving oligarchs who are only looking for ways to serve themselves.

This problem is not unsolvable; we have an opportunity in front of us. State elections are coming in a few weeks, and in those we can either continue to exacerbate the problem or choose a new direction and start to drive the change to save America.

If you feel like you could put the interest of the country above your own, volunteer to be a write-in candidate for an office at any level in the upcoming elections. Email your friends, post it on Twitter, Facebook and any other medium possible. If you know someone who you think could do this, talk to them and encourage them to take the challenge. If you are not a candidate, then support the write-in fully and encourage everyone you know to do the same.

If we do this, we can take back our government and once again live in a republic where the government is truly representative of the people.
