A Princeton study reports “We the People” have no influence on government policy. LOL, really, it didn’t take a study from an Ivy League university to determine that. The study does confirm what we should have already known.
Does that mean your vote means nothing when electing government office holders? Yes, when “We the People” aren’t running for office or finding our own candidates, your voice isn’t being heard. Those on the ballots are individuals who are in the pockets of corporate America and the wealthy, they are groomed as such (dah, Obama). Many of the candidates are lobbyist and from special interests groups. Oh, they campaign with your interest…..a facade. The elected official’s bread is buttered by corporate money, the wealthy; the same are members of the Council on Foreign Relations (not your relations), the Bilderberg Group.
We still have a democratic form of government in place. Having it in place is one thing, actually being practiced is another. When your voice is not heard and the interest of American citizens is ignored, that isn’t democracy, that is socialism.
Getting our candidates on the ballot is easy, you run, you find common sense people to run; it doesn’t matter what party, common sense prevails. Winning elections won’t be easy……we still face corporate, wealthy money. They have the funds for campaign ads, and name recognition gets you elected. Here is where the rest of us come in. We need people who will go door to door speaking on behalf of “our” candidates; passing out fliers…..they don’t have to be expensive, just have a common sense message. This is a form of peaceful revolution.
There are many issues facing our country, that our government does not consider or ignores “the will of the people” , Obamacare, gun control etc….., too many to list here, oh, one I must mention, border control.
Demonstrations, protests, if organized in mass will create more public awareness (hopefully nationally). Protesting should not be practiced only when we get angered about a black man being killed on the streets. You have a constitutional right to protest, peacefully, exercise that right. We don’t march about jobs, poverty, healthcare, foreign policy, for or against.
We the people need, must take control. Together black, white, Asian, Latino…..we can take our country back from corporate bought off self-serving government. Together we can make a difference.
