I am a firm believer in letting your voice be heard in local and national politics. Let the elected officials (um, they work for us) know how you feel, but (and this is a BIG BUT), please educate yourself and then choose your point of view on each issue.
Republicans are not right 100% of the time and Democrats are not right 100% of the time. Do not follow just to follow. Educate yourself, show our elected officials that we truly are on top of things and voicing rational opinions/ arguments.
One last quick note, always, ALWAYS be respectful in your communications with elected officials. Now, educate and inform yourself, form an educated opinion/ argument, and write letters, email, and/ or call your elected officials. Let your voice be heard!!
