How much into politics do you get? Do you ever call or write to your representatives? Do you sign petitions, lobby, or donate $$ to any political causes?

No, I've actually (until recently) never cared about politics at all. It's more after I got married and had kids that I've started paying attention. Now I do read about the representative and make sure I am educated (more or less) on what they have to offer, but I don't go crazy. It's just not for me.

I try to keep up on emailing and calling my representatives if a pro-life issue comes up. And before voting I research each candidate. But otherwise, I don't go crazy about it. Politics tend to annoy me!

How much into politics do you get? I am very involved with local politics as I am a municipal employee, and my job may depend on who is in local government. It is a fact that you will have to shell out 1.5M for a new ladder truck every 3 years people....

Do you ever call or write to your representatives? Yes I do, and if I get one more form letter written by the college puke intern which does not clearly state my congressional reps stance on an issue I will scream; but they thank me for my continued support for the clown I did not vote for.

Do you sign petitions, lobby, or donate $$ to any political causes? You bet I do.

Nope - we just vote down or against anything/anyone we don't believe in.
