Our Political Process is Broken Beyond Repair
Our Political Process is Broken Beyond Repair! The time is Upon Each & Everyone of Us, to Rise Up & begin to Reset, Renew and Restore it!
Our political process is broken beyond repair. The government and our representatives no longer work for us. Gridlock, high levels of corruption, record breaking debt, people of all walks of life and their children being killed in their schools and in the streets, and just when we thought that it could not get any worse, we wake up to a new virus epidemic rapidly traveling around the world and an ill equipped government more concerned with the stock market, than saving American lives.
We as Americans are being forced to have to confront a new reality that we have become a nation full of indecisive, fearful and helpless Citizens, with little recourse. Americans easily divided and pitted against one another in order for a one party or the other party to win elections and power. That being the case, we must begin to ask ourselves the hard questions: Where do we go from here? What will we be leaving for our children tomorrow? What will our future legacy be?
Let us start with the wise words of Thomas Jefferson, “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness) it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government”. We must always remember that governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed and that in that equation the Citizen rules supreme.
We must remember and begin to reclaim the fact that the American Citizen is the most important individual in the entire United States of America. They are not dependent on the corporations, political parties, the government or anyone. We are not a burden on the social system, we are the main reason that the social system exists in the first place. They purpose why all of these things exist is because without them there would be nothing. We may have originally come from all parts of the world. And yet we are not outsiders in our country, we are the most important part that makes us a country.
Within the main features of the Declaration of Independence there is a great moral, intellectual, legal and spiritual responsibility. It is a declaration of equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man, these are not elements which we can see and touch. They are ideals. The have their source and their roots in the strength or weakness in the quality of the Citizens civic convictions. They belong to everyone. Unless the faith of the American people in these righteous ideals and convictions can endure, the principles will perish. We cannot continue to enjoy the result of our freedoms if we neglect and abandon the American cause, and the Citizen’s role in protecting it.
How do we do this? How do we stop all of this madness and preserve all of the things that the founding fathers got right, while at the same time removing all of the things that they got wrong in the original design of this great nation? We will start by reclaiming our individual freedoms and independence to self-determination while acknowledging the challenges that we will be facing and then set out a plan that allows each and every one of us to be able to become part of the solution, one Citizen and one step at a time. We will work on building from the ground up a new independent political process with a personal political position model that will make the old political party model obsolete.
