    My Grand-mother suggested to..

    "You cannot change the USA.. you can change your local Community"..

    I can only assume this is what you mean.

    It's truth is dependent on your influence.

    To me it means if the politics effect me at my home then it is important.

    That is why cities vote democrat they need the government from everything from food to transportation.

    The rural area vote more republican because they don't want the government controlling how they farm or how to run a factory.

    But because they voted democrat now there are no garment factories or steel mills in the big cities.

    Great question you just made me learn something lol. When former speaker of the house Tip O'Neill said that he meant that a politicians success is directly tied to his ability to understand and influence the issues of his constituents.
