With all the negativity in the media, staying positive can be a challenge. Despite President Trump’s historic election, many conservatives feel the country is still on a downward spiral.
Yet, relying on politicians to fix everything is a sure-fire way to be disappointed. In order to make America great, average Americans need to take the lead.
Consider These 6 Strategies to Improve the Country
Making America great again won’t be easy, but you can do your part. Here are six places to start, some political and some not:
1. Talk to Your Neighbors
One of the main problems with our fractured society is the lack of genuine connection we have with one another. Social media has replaced face-to-face conversation. While social media sites like Nextdoor work to create local connections between neighbors, don’t just keep it online. Endeavor to meet your neighbors in person and engage them to create more connection.
2. Take Back the GOP
The historical “do-nothing” Congress run by establishment GOP hacks is still voted in by regular people. In order to make Congress great again, these RINOs need to be booted out of office in the primaries. The Mitch McConnells and Paul Ryans of the world feel justified in continuing their behavior because they keep winning their primaries. Get involved and talk to your neighbors to change this.
3. Go to Impoverished Areas and Volunteer
If you want people off welfare, then you consider that this won’t happen without some leadership and help. Remember the saying “if you teach a man to fish.” Go to communities where welfare is dominant and support people in getting off the dole. This could be through education, job opportunities, or volunteer childcare.
4. Teach Children the Value of Liberty
Don’t just leave your child’s mind in the hands of a teacher you don’t know. Get involved in your school and demand better education. In some cases, you might need to remove your child from your local public school if it is teaching anti-American hatred and demonizing our Founding Fathers. Libertarian Ron Paul offers a homeschool curriculum online.
5. Support Conservative and Wholesome Media
If you are offended by Bill Nye’s infamous “sex junk” video, why do you continue giving money to Netflix? As long as they keep getting your money, they will continue to make media that spits in the face of conservative values.
Perhaps you shut off your cable already and have turned to streaming as an alternative. Consider supporting CRTV, which features Michelle Malkin and Steven Crowder. Christians can subscribe to Pure Flix, which streams wholesome entertainment that is safe for the entire family.
6. Start Your Own Business
With your own business, you get to control the agenda for your work. You are also less likely to feel pressured by an employer to support causes that you don’t want to support. If your business becomes a huge success, you have more influence. Look at the power Jeff Bezos has due to Amazon.
You Can Make America Great Again
Don’t just rely on President Trump to do everything for you. You can make a small but meaningful contribution to making America a better place for you, your family, and your neighbors. Or, think big. Plan on becoming the next Jeff Bezos. Maybe someday you can buy The Washington Post and set the mainstream media agenda.
