How would you like to become more politically influential than ninety-nine percent of the population?
Would you like to become so influential for the things you care about that candidates and public officials come to you for support, seek out your opinions and come to know you on a first name basis. Or so important that your opinions help shape the political debate. How is this possible? By getting involved in a political party.
Political parties in some form or another have existed since the foundation of our country. Their “philosophies” have changed over time however, as members come and go. In other words, they're no better than the people that comprise them at any given time.
For example, think of a political party as a bus that a group of people use to get from one place to another. Every few years the bus pulls over to the side of the road, people get on, others get off, they fight over the steering wheel, and then it goes down the road for a few more years
