So it would seem as though I took a cue from this fine online community and ran for local government in June 2009. I succeeded in becoming the youngest Councilman sitting for my tribe, the Huu-ay-aht First Nations.

Politics has been very... informative and humbling. In the time that I've been a part of the government, I've learned much and feel as though I've matured past those last vestiges of adolescence that constantly plague we twenty-somethings.

Leadership is serious work. I always understood that I would be helping to make decisions that would affect more than six hundred and fifty members of my tribe, but the reality really soaked in a few weeks after the election.

I hope to post more of my thoughts here in the future, too.

I am working in the Ohio Statehouse, it is interesting to see how things get done in state government. I must also say that there are some very hard working people in the Ohio Assembly. One thing that bothers me is the fact that politicians spend so much time lambasting their own organizations (i.e. congress, state assembly, etc.)--no corporation spends its time bashing its own brand, but that is essentially what many politicians do.

Just wanted to let everybody here know (as this is the best forum that I could ever hope for) that I will be reviving the Bull Moose party.

Here is a link to the platform of 1912:
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/presidents/26_t_roosevelt/psources/ps_trprogress.html

Most of it is already still relevant, but I will be updating it in the coming months, for a new party. If anybody would like to know more about it, and possibly contribute to the re-creation of such a party, don't hesitate to message me on this site. Also, am trying to start a group on this site called The New Bull Moose Party.

Keep an eye out.

Thanks!

Are there any Canadians in this group? We have no problem discussing American politics, but Canada has a nice political mess of its own.

My update:
My trip to the Colorado State Capitol was fantastic. I got a chance to sit in on the intense legislative session in the State House and even got invited to the floor of the Senate by my state senator. I got so much out of the trip and was able to dine with a couple lobbyists as well. It has definitely bred a greater political sense in my self and ignited a larger desire for civic involvement.
This weekend I will be looking through the massive catalog of Colorado Citizen Boards and Commissions and will apply to be invloved at that level at first. If that doesn't work, then certainly I will be involved more on the county level.

At the end of the month I will be attending the Republican State Convention in Richmond, VA. This will be my first real run in with anything highly political, and I'm very excited.

This Wednesday, I have a tour and and inside session at the Colorado State Capitol. This is for my work as a Town Government employee. While my employment nixes me from running for office anywhere, this is a good way for me to be involved. I also have emailed my state Rep and Senator to see if they would be working down in Denver that day and if they would want to meet.
It'll be good to be involved.

I'm in. Going to the Tax Day Tea Party on Wednesday, and gonna try to ensure that it's an actual representation of the problems, rather than a "Bash-Obama-Party".
Check my blog at http://tomjoad.newsvine.com, some articles are archived. Look under the politics tag.

I love politics, I once ran for mayor of Mount Vernon, Kentucky, but I did not win the position.
