Opportunity and obligation to think for ourselves


The greatest thing about the country that we live in is our undeniable right to be the individual that we want to be. We can form and express our own opinions about anything in the world that we want to. We are all united in this ability, and as a group we should honor our individuality. It is our duty to ourselves and to those who have made this country what it is.

We all have the power to create and form opinions on our own. But in the political system that exist, the voice of the individual is often unheard and even more often never created. In politics there are two parties, Democrats and Republicans. Within these two parties there is a broad sense of collectiveness and participation. Sometimes these obligations to the party become larger than the obligations to ourselves. It is easy to forget that the political system is supposed to work for us. Not just us collectively but individually, and individually we should form our own opinions.
