CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT INTO AN ACTUAL DEMOCRACY
RID US OF THIS FAILED REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC
You have never voted for a law and you have never voted for the President or a Judge.
You have only voted for representatives to vote for these for you.
It is our responsibility, privilege, and right to vote directly for the laws under which we live, to directly vote for our President and Vice President who administer the laws, and to vote for the Judges that interpret the laws: to live in an ACTUAL DEMOCRACY.
Today's technology now makes this possible. For example, American Idol, X-Factor, The Voice, and America Has Talent have the public cast votes for the best entertainer. If we can vote for the best entertainer we can vote for the best laws, or vote against them. Politics requires open debate, raucous discussion, lies, truth, and opposition from many, many points of view. We do that today on social media, blogs, instant messaging. So we do debate politics and form our own views. We directly vote. Since we debate and vote we can debate and vote on the laws, the President, and the Judges. We do not need representatives to make our laws, choose our President, and appoint our Judges.
Since it is our right to live in an ACTUAL DEMOCRACY and it is possible to live in an Actual Democracy, this Association is committed to making our nation a 'more perfect Union', by making this nation an:
The association seeks political equality and personal freedom for all. Therefore, a Constitutional Amendment mandating that the people must vote on any bill before it goes to the President to become law, to directly elect the President, Vice President, and elect the Judiciary is the objective of the Association. An Amendment somewhat along these lines will be required:
1. The legislative function of the United States shall be performed directly by the people according to Article I of the Constitution and legislation that the people enact. If a bill is passed it is then sent to the President for signature, veto, or pocket veto, following Article I Section 7 of this constitution.
2. The President and Vice President of the United States shall be directly elected by the people to four year terms and shall not serve more than two such terms.
3. One ninth of the Federal Judiciary shall be elected every year by the citizens of their respective jurisdictions. Currently filled judgeships will be elected in reverse order of their years of service, longest serving is next to be elected until all have been elected.
4. The right of citizens Of the United States to directly vote for the laws under which they live, to directly carry out all other legislative functions stated in Article I of the Constitution, to directly vote for the President and Vice President, and to directly vote for the Judiciary, shall not be abridged by the United States or by any State.
A simple majority will pass the bill on to the President for his signature or his veto; a simple majority will elect the President and Vice President as well as the judges.
It is essential to quit begging for representation and to represent ourselves.
It is essential to quit begging for equality and freedom and vote for them directly.
The very idea that the people are to exercise their power and freedom to directly vote on their own laws, their Executives, and their Judicial Officers will be opposed by the existing power structure with all the time, money, and energy they can muster.
Those of us who believe in freedom and justice, who understand and are willing to work for ACTUAL DEMOCRACY may well not succeed in the effort to make it a reality unless we pool together, pool our individual power, talent, and money to succeed in electing representatives who will vote to put themselves out of work and make us, the People of the United States, the legislature --- directly, without representatives, and to directly vote for President and Vice President, without the electoral college, and vote directly for Judges.
To accomplish passage of an Amendment giving the people direct control of their government will require us to elect two thirds (2/3) of our Representatives under our current Republic who will vote for the Amendment and three fourths (3/4) of the State legislatures to pass the Amendment. We must begin the work now, plan to have Association offices around the country, yearly National Conventions beginning in a year from now (first in 2015), and committed elected candidates from any and all parties in Congress in 3 years, and then the Amendment passed in 5 to 7 years.
If you are of a mind for this Nation to be really free and the people to be really equal before the law, and for all of us to live in an ACTUAL DEMOCRACY, join us now as a member, as a volunteer, or contributor; even as a critic. We need startup financing, a board of directors, etc. If you know of sources or willing participants please email firstname.lastname@example.org and show the website to them.
And, of course, please send a few dollars, we make them go a long way and we're just starting....
