Answer all the question.
1. Explore your representative's substantive representation (i.e. values and voting record).
A. Using their official website, find a policy issue that your representative has taken a stand on. Explain the issue briefly. Once you have explained the issue, provide information regarding the stance of your representative on the issue.
B. Compare/contrast your position with that of your representative. Where do you stand on the issue? Is your stance conservative or liberal? Next, try to articulate the opposing view. What might their objections be and what are the merits of their argument? Finally, respond to these objections while explaining-with logic-why your perspective is correct and theirs is mistaken.
2. Now that you have officially staked out a policy position, you need to think about how to get it put into action.
A. Who in the government OR community should be involved? What specific actions can you (and others) take? Why is it important to get people involved in this cause and what will be the benefits of this action?
3. Let's assume that you are successful in your efforts, and you achieve your policy goal. Now it is time to assess the impact of this potential change.
A. What do you believe will be the consequences of putting this policy into practice? How would this improve your community, state, and country?
B. What do you think will be the short-term effects (within the next year or two)? How about the long-term impacts (beyond 2 years)? Finally, what are some negative unintended consequences that might result from this course of action?
