Time to go to the caucus. Time to make your voice heard. Time to be a loudmouth, or a wiseguy, or even a rhetorical bomb-thrower if necessary. We have to decide this year what kind of government we're going to have. Do you want public servants or do you want the self-serving? Do you want people who understand that government ought to be limited, or do you want unlimited government? Do you want to be represented by someone who lives in the real world, or by an orange-clad, pie-eyed perpetual graduate student? Do you want to send a flawed but generally decent man to the Senate, or do you want to send a parasitic lawyer or a professional smart-ass to replace him? And what of the White House? Do you want a Clinton restoration? Do you want the man in the fancy suit behind Door #3, chanting a mantra of change? Do you want something better than that?
It's time to rouse your inner Cincinnatus and get involved. It's easy to say that it doesn't matter, that the decisions that are made at City Hall, or in St. Paul, or in Washington, don't really matter that much. Easy and wrong. Here in Minnesota, the day to speak your piece is tomorrow. Don't miss your opportunity.
