Brings me to the last ingredient in the functioning democracy

Brings me to the last ingredient in the functioning democracy

Town if you find yourself only hanging around with people of your own race or ethnicity or religion include people in your circle who have different backgrounds life experiences you'll learn what it's like to walk in somebody else's shoes and in the process you will help to make this democracy work.

 Brings me to the last ingredient in the functioning democracy one that's perhaps most basic it has already been mentioned and that is participation class of  I understand that one effect of today's poisonous political climate is to push people away from participation in public life if all

 You see when you turn on the TV is name call if all you hear about is how special interests lobbying and partisanship prevented Washington from getting something done then you might think to yourself.

 What's the point of getting involved here's the point when we don't pay close attention to the decisions made by our leaders when we fail to educate ourselves about the major issues of the day when we choose not to make our voices and opinions heard that's when democracy breaks down that's when power is abuse that's when the most extreme voices of our society fill the void that we leave that's.

 When powerful interests and their lobbyists are most able to buy access and influence in the corridors of power because none of us are there to speak up and stop them participation in public life doesn't mean that you all have to run for public office though we could certainly use some fresh faces in Washington but it does mean that you should pay attention.
