The United States government has built-in accountability. We have three branches of government and each provide a system of checks and balances.  Ultimately we the people hold the greatest form of accountability to our government. We do this through elections.   But what happens when people don't vote and disengage from the process?  Politics can be frustrating but to give in to despair or just throw up their hands in apathy… only hurts the integrity of the country and hinders the possibility of human flourishing.  Albert Einstein once said,  ”The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” Giving up won’t help American society flourish.  So let me ask you: what are you doing to strengthen your community?  Our commonwealth?  This nation?
