I am just an everyday American person. Like many of my fellow Americans, I am tired of money and power running our government. Big business, Lobbyists, and the well off population fill our government offices. Why?– Because it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to run a state campaign and millions to run a successful Federal campaign. Then, those elected “owe” someone or something or they desire re election and the money and power groups can ensure, so again someone with money and power is controlling OUR Government. Where is our representation? For example, are there any Senators who worked at a mid level position, made under a 100k annually, not from family money and not supported by a wealthy business or organization? Where is the representation for this group of people? Who cares about their foreclosure notices or the difficulties they are having clothing their children for the upcoming school year? Who can understand and empathize and thus make certain something substantial is done? Another example for ya'”Name a Senator who is of Senior age, depends on Social Security and Medicare, can’t afford the uncontrolled prices of pharmaceuticals and has to decide whether to pay the mortgage or purchase the needed prescriptions for the month? Again, there are none! So who represents this segment of society? Point is'”money and power elect people into office. There is not any government for and by the people as I can attest, we are not all wealthy business men, attorneys or come from family money and we certainly are not all supported by a wealthy organization that has selfish motives for the election of one of us.
I recently created and have circulated a very simple petition for Change. The intent'”for people to come together and demand a new era, one of the people taking back government for ALL people. This is a Non Party, All People are Valuable, ACT! Imagine if Power, Money, and Politics were no longer inter linked? Imagine if lobbyist meant someone who a particular group sent to talk to the elected official about an important issue of that group and the elected official heard the individual because he represents THE PEOPLE of a particular culture or belief? NO More Favors because of Money and Power or the ability to get someone re elected! Imagine a place where You or your neighbor could be elected to office because you are a factory worker or mid level manager and represent this segment of society? What if all money raised was placed in a pool and equally split amongst all candidates. As well as tv time, etc.'”for example. I am no super intellect or genius. I am certain that there are many who would and can do more with this innovation or should I dare say Revolutionary movement?! This is the time, each of us can make a difference when we come together to agree on the simple things first. The People, NOT Politicians must lead and determine the course of this country for all peoples. Here is a small chance to have every voice heard and unify all American peoples.
