So far we have discussed matters of civil rights, civil liberties, public opinion and political participation. By now, I think you get the idea that politics and political behavior operate within institutions. We citizens interact with governmental institutions on a regular basis through the goods and service we utilize, the quality of our air, our streets, our parks etc.. Is there something that you personally care about? Is their something that you have read which has hit close to home? Is there an issue that you care about? How does it interact with your local, state and/or federal government? Share with me your issue of concern. Why does it matter? Who does it affect? What should be done to address the issue?
