You can always change something. For instance in 2005 a lot of people gather together around the
organisation FFII and convinced most MEPs ('diputado europeo' in Spanish) to say no to a law
proposal to allow patents on software. Sadly, the battle is not over, but we can win.

You don't need to dedicate much time to help. If you are interested in stopping software patents for
instance, you can
    a) sign and promote
    b) Become a member of the FFII
    c) ask how to help more to the people most active

If everything political you want to do is to spend 30 minutes every 4 years voting, don't
expect a good politic out of it.
