Don't think you can make a difference in politics and government? You're wrong, of course. Take it from a veteran: every vote you cast, phone call you make, or letter you write does have an impact. Don't expect to get your way on every issue with every candidate and elected official -- the word for people who demand that is 'immature' -- but don't let frustration silence you. In this case, silence may not equal death, but it does equal irrelevance.

Take a lesson from my new hero, Brian at Faggoty-Ass Faggot. And make sure you follow the links. It's a fascinating example of how an individual can make a difference.

Will it determine the outcome of the election? Maybe... maybe not. But there will be at least one candidate in Ohio who will know that playing the Gay Card as a cheap political tactic has consequences.

And you can bet that others will learn their lesson, too.
