Seven Types of Political Capacities CW 74

Political Capacities

There is so much that can be done on the activism side of politics to help make lasting change in your local community. Today on the Commonwealthy podcast we are going to be talking about seven types of political capacities that the right side needs to be involved with in order to bring our vision of a free market limited government to reality.

I am excited to talk to you today about political capacities because I know that not everyone is going to run for local political office, but so many of us can make a real difference by fulfilling one of these capacities for the right.
