Final Countdown: Saving America With The Ballot
For too long now, Americans have assumed that whomever they elect for public office will protect their rights and represent their interests. What they fail to consider is that a political party has an agenda that is usually contrary to that of the People's.
Political parties are funded by special interest groups, political action committees (PACs), and by individual member dues and donations. The entire system is designed to produce power within the party and by consequence, eliminate independent candidates or third-party candidates from contending with the party's nominees. As a result, the representation of the People becomes incidental to the party platform, which of course is designed to benefit the party's largest donors.
In order that We the People are represented by our elected officials, we must be educated and informed in the duties of citizenship and self-governance. Just because we elect people to take responsibility in government does not negate the duty of the People to hold those we elect accountable for their actions, especially so when, those actions are contrary to the law and the will of the People.
The government says they want to fix the economy. The problems with the economy were created by government through mandates, laws, regulations, and taxes. Businesses were forced to close because they could not afford what government forced on them. Those that were able to, moved out of the United States to nations that offered better business environments. Result in America is loss of jobs and loss of tax revenue.
Government says it wants to fix education. It created the problem and now it wants us to trust that it can fix it with more money. It hasn't worked in over 100 years so what makes anyone think that it can be fixed by more money?
Government wants to fix health care and look at the mess they have created with that. What will it take before enough Americans realize that government is not the answer?
Every election, American voters go to the polls and vote for promises instead of reality. Neither party has improved the quality of life for Americans. Neither party has cut spending, in fact they have all increased it. And every day we hear and see more and more stories of corruption, fraud, intimidation, cover-ups, and lies. The very People we elected to protect us are in fact the very ones who are harming us in every aspect of our lives. And yet I still hear People speak of their Party as if it is all the fault of the other party.
In 2010, a change was made. People chose candidates who promised to represent the People and vote in Congress according to the will of the People and not the Party. Those who kept their promises were demonized by their own Party and the press. Those who buckled to the Party were rewarded as was Paul Ryan who, as a candidate promised to oppose any debt ceiling increase and then once elected, voted in favor of the increase and then justified his lies to all of America.
With wide-spread reports of voter fraud and intimidation, no outrage was reported in the media. With many reports of voter machine fixing by unbiased universities, these machines are still in use and being implemented in more districts. This will assure a vote outcome that will be determined by software control and not the actual votes of the People. The Esteemed Readers of this blog will recall several posts that described the fraud and the remedy.
If We the People are to make a difference in the restoration of America, it will have to b by those we choose to represent us. We can no longer allow party politics to divide us. We can no longer trust technology used in elections to reflect honesty and integrity. It is incumbent upon us all to verify that what we are told is in fact accurate and true.
What to do, what to do?
