I live in a small rural town in northern Pennsylvania, and it seems like I am surrounded by people who believe they know what this nation needs based on...  I don't even know.  Now, I will be heading off to college come August, and I am very excited to get away from this environment where I am seen as a "radical".  I have great conversations with a certain young man in my class who has the exact opposite viewpoint on everything political, but we cannot seem to see eye-to-eye on everything.  Now, I have done some good things.  In my AP American Government class, I was elected President based on an original campaign, and I was nominated to be Speaker of the House in various activities...  I don't know what people fear anymore.  People say that tyranny is about all the time, but is that evident here?  no.  People seem to be stuck in the late 1700s, I don't know about anyone else, but I am ready to move forward.  Change is necessary

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
