Reasonably educated, late-30s American male voter, working full-time, with no political connections. What are the most effective ways I can support a shift to single-payer health care in the United States?

I read on the blue this morning, and just getting sick (har har) of hearing myself rant to my girlfriend, I'm itching to Do Something already, but I don't know where to start.

Help?
