America’s Government

 

 

 

 

IS BROKEN.

 

 

 

 

 

Many of Our Leaders are the Cause.

 

 

LyingLying, as a political strategy, is entrenched in our political system. We need to expose it and reject leaders who lie. We should add to the oath of office the legal commitment to – speak the truth.          Money Corrupts Politics Money has corrupted politics. It must be our priority to take money out of politics.           Lack of IntegrityWe must become intolerant of low integrity. When I hear a Congressman lie, I call him. We need a million people to call, and if need be, demonstrate outside their offices.         Ideology Replaces FactWe must not run our government on ideolgy. It is folly to make decisions based on ideolgy, rather than accurate information.           Unlimited Re-election = DysfunctionTerm limits are necessary to force our leaders to focus on serving the people, rather than special interests, who are funding continuous re-election.

Even Our Best Leaders…

 

 

Have Remained Silent,

When Conscience Demanded They Speak Out.

 

More…

 

 

 

 

 

Too Many of our Leaders are Driven

 

 

By the Ideology of Power,


Not the Ideology of Service.

We Must Fix It.

One Person… Can’t Fix This.

 

But Millions… Can!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Must Become

The 4th Branch of Government,

 

Setting Unmistakable Expectations

For the Other 3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is Our Government…

 

 

It does Not Belong to Special Interests or Our Leaders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are the Hope for Just Governance…

 

 

 

 

If Not Us…..Who?   If Not Now…..When?

Decisions Must Be Based On Accurate Facts

Politics stands alone among all disciplines, in choosing not to seek accurate information to guide it.  Why has our government never created a reliable source of information on America’s issues, to educate our people and our leaders?

Congressional & Supreme Court

Term Limits With Recall

It is a mistake to allow U.S. Congressmen to stay in office for unlimited terms?  15 states have state congressional terms.  46 states limit state Supreme Court terms, from 6 to 14 years.  No U.S. Congressional and Supreme Court term limits fosters dysfunction and corruption in our government.

On Political Abuse Of Facts:

but not his own facts.”

Declaration Of Independence

States that the People have the Right to Change our Government…

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
