www.votestrike.com/We the people...The Constitution of The United States of America spells out in the first line where the power of our great democracy lies. Unfortunately we the people have allowed the power to slip away to special interest, lobbyist, corporations and career politicians. It is time to reclaim our democracy from the people that are destroying it. Thomas Jefferson said that “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent” now is the time for all people to be heard.The framers of our democracy did not intend our representatives be career politicians. They foresaw the danger in this. The constitution states that “The Congress shall assemble at least once in every year.” The framers intent was for our democracy to be governed by everyday people not career politicians for obvious reasons. Legislators would meet enact laws and go back to their chosen profession. Career politicians will do and say anything to keep their power. Power corrupts even those with the best intentions.Individually we find that we are powerless against corporate media or Big Oil or Washington. Our choices are limited. Our effectiveness diminished. This is not by accident. Unions, social gatherings, clubs that all flourished before the 1960s have all been destroyed by those who find you & me to be a threat.Without direct action, republican democracy is truly disempowering: our only means of influence are to beg the Very Serious And Important Intermediary - the congressman, the governor, the president, etc. - to do something on our behalf. www.votestrike.com/
