Have you ever put actions where your heart is politically speaking i.e. boycotting polling for somebody or anything like that?

I always argued with a teacher I had in fifth grade. She was insanely environmentalist and also gave out tons of busy work. One day she gave us a fill-in-the-blank poem (really?!), so where it said "I would get rid of___" I put "recycling and teachers' unions".

I contact my representatives, try to keep up with current bills, and proudly display my Independent colors damnit! ????

I take several hours out of one weekend every month to go down to the state Capitol and open carry at monthly gun rights rallies.

Yes, but I was young, stupid & idealistic.

Now I don't care as long as they leave me alone.

Oh! Also helped circulate petitions, including on healthcare and closing puppy mills/making them illegal in Ohio. Been to a few protests too. I can at least honestly say I've tried.

Yes, I have. We don't buy nestle products, went a bit without Pepsi until they reformed one of their policies (which was sad, i love a lot of their products!). Also don't patron certain local stores that are stupid level anti gun. I don't care if you don't want guns in your store, but act right.

Wink- nestle loves handing out formula to women in third world countries until they are dependent and no longer able to breastfeed, then charging them, leading babies to starve to death and die of disease (unsafe water).

in testing different flavor options and products. Problems since been resolved, but it's not the kind of thing I'll support (if I know about it, at least. Can't do anything about what I don't know!).

My youngest son's friends drive me crazy, I think they're called hipsters, they complain and complain and complain about the government but they don't even as much as a vote let alone take political action. My daughters ex hated the government but had his hands out for everything he could get.

I can't stand that! Either shut up, or love by your beliefs. If you don't stand for something...

I don't care for their coffee at all. And they burn tea.... But I also don't see it as a support for a belief system. The guy was kinda a huge jerk, which I don't support. Think the same way I do, or I don't want your business! Go away! Yea.... Even holding the same beliefs, makes me not want to go.

I boycotted the evil teacher and his evil schemes to brainwash us everyday in 3rd grade by crawling under my desk and refusing to do my work. I guess you could say I was some kind of hero. :)

Door what did your mom say. Too funny. In the fourth grade my son refused to sign the bill rights because kids do not have enough rights. His teacher said she would call me so he signed it I told him he should not of signed if you don't sign which you don't believe it.

I did campaigning in the 2008 election (I was too young to vote so I got my butt out there).

I campaigned in 1968. At 18 I was too young to vote. I'm very proud of you for being active that's very good.
