My inspiration for this post comes from various quotes but has the same theme. It is easy to sit back and complain about this or that. We all do it and I am certainly no exception. But just complaining about something seldom has the effect of actually resolving what you complain against.
Here are some words from those much more famous than I am regarding this topic:

Well done is better than well said. ~Benjamin Franklin
The punishment which the wise suffer who refuse to take part in the government, is to live under the government of worse men. -Plato

When you are right, you cannot be too radical; When you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative. -Martin Luther King, Jr.
The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crises maintain their neutrality. -Dante Alighieri
Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility. -Sigmund Freud
