The degree to which change will happen is proportional to the degree to which engineers get involved in the political process. At the last SIA dinner I attended the speakers practically begged the audience to get involved more in politics. Engineers tend to eschew politics and dismiss politicians. You don't see too many in Congress that are EEs. Mostly they're lawyers or doctors. Mr. Ottelini asking for reduced taxes is good. But real change will only happen when EEs A: Start leveraging their collective strength and B: Start running for office and making logical changes from within. In many ways engineers show their intelligence by not get involved in politics. But we may be too smart for our own good.
