What else do I need to say? If you don’t like how things are, do something about the things you don’t like. In the example of Burden, you could serve your country in the military, support the economy by working as a professional consultant, create one of the best outposts of reality about the military and defense on the internet, or run for office. Those are all things I call doing something.
Right now, you could consider giving Burden’s campaign some money. Then, go do something yourself.
