    Sign #MakeItShort Before Midnight December 20th!

    The countdown for yet another election cycle has already begun.

    After 2 arduous years of mudslinging the election is finally over. Like many others across the country, I was surprised with the outcome, but I for one have not lost hope.

    Today I see a whole population of people not giving up. I see people who will not be disgruntled and hopeless for the next four years. I see people who will not remain on the sidelines. I see people who are ready to get involved.

    On November 8th we voted, but it does not stop there. Our government has been chosen and their job now is to represent us. They have been hired to work for us! To remind them we must continue to raise our voices by way of the media, by way of petitions that represent our needs.

    It doesn’t seem that many Americans are proud of the election cycle we just emerged from and agree that there has to be a better way. Whether you want to change the electoral college, change term limits, or change the election cycle it is important to put our voices and our time behind these movements.

    Today, I’m asking once more for your voice on my petition to shorten the election cycle. It’s a small piece of the puzzle, but one that is important to me and that I believe could make a real difference. If you agree with that we deserve a better system and a limit to our campaign cycle, please add your voice to the #makeitshort petition at change.org/makeitshort by midnight on Tuesday, December 20th. On Wednesday the 21st, I will send our names to the leaders of the DNC and RNC and request a thoughtful discussion about how we can make our election cycle more efficient.

    Remember, we vote for our government and they in turn are supposed to represent us, not the special interests. Now is the time to let them know they work for us by telling them what we would like to see changed.

    Please go to http://www.change.org/makeitshort. Share it with your friends and ask them to join us as well. Together we can make a change.
