"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

-Constitution of the United States

Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus and spurred a year long political bus boycott that helped later change the U.S. Constitution. A mother with a cause rallied a million other moms to march onto Capital Hill and lobby legislators for gun control. There are amazing situations in which one person made a huge difference in today's politics merely because a value-driven belief; but is there more to it? Can one person really make a difference just by believing in something strongly, or does the success of your cause rely upon how much money you have, what your last name is, or if you know the right people?
