We have witnessed far to long the struggles of the 2 political parties for power and plunder, while grievous wrongs have been inflicted upon the suffering people. We charge that the controlling influence dominating both parties have permitted the existing and dreadful conditions to develop without any serious effort to prevent or restrain them. Neither do they now promise any real reform. They have together agreed to ignore almost every issue. They purpose to drown out the cry of the peoples voices. They purpose to alter and sacrifice our homes, lives, and children to destroy the multitude in order to secure corruption funds from the rich. As part of our Nation and filled with the spirit of freedom and liberty and justice for all I seek to restore the government of the republic to the hands of "the plain people" with which class it originated.
No more big wig politions that get paid to screw the people we should have men and women who work a real 8 hour day and know the meaning of a hard days work, working for and representing the people of our country. All politions do this day and age is take money(corrupt money) while only doing what bennefits them and their pockets. They forget "the people and our interests.
Out with the old and in with the new
Maybe they should let the people on welfare in office those people can manage on next to nothing while the big wigs can't manage mega funds.
Yes our country is messed up but it doesn't have to be. Make a choice and make a change people it's your country start acting like it.
Do we really need "big shots" or are we capable of running our country our way???
STAND UP!!!!!!!

I think it's disgusting that veteran's will lose there bennefits because of a government shut down.
Why don't they run our country and the funds after all they put there life on the line while on duty for this country.
How can the people and "Big shots" allow this to happen? To sit still and do nothing and watch our people fall apart???
Perhaps if the Big shots salary was cut to an hourly wage like a majority of the American people have to work for there would be more money for the veterans and every other area they want to cut funding on...
If people don't ban together and do something about these god forsaken wrongs than they are like the German people and the Nazis. Allowing it to happen and don't cry when it affects you because eventually it will.

We should change our rules too on ousting elected officials.
Once there is proof of Wrongs to the people they shouldn't have to wait for "proceedure" to fix it. They should immediatly be replaced without waiting to the end of term or going through some grievous and burdensome process to do it.
That's part of what is wrong with our system and in this country everybody knows but pretends not to care.
Wake up people we all have the power if we use it together. That's how a lot of Civil rights came about people had to fight for and demand them.
It's not as simple as common sence any more or even a written letter it's about the peoples will to make a stand and a change. So until it happens I will be praying for and dreaming of that day.

Anyone interested in co-ordinating a "meeting"/rally/prot est what ever the propper word is, where everyone in support of the above mentioned could make a statement? I hear many complaints about our government but it's all lip service other than voicing opinions no one wants to even try to "make a change".

It's very wrong for people to allow corrupt officials to continue what they are doing to this country. Our jobs our sent over seas so businesses can pay cheaper prices while some poor person in another country works themselves to death in some "sweat shop" so the greedy company can than sell it overpriced to americans. So instead of paying americans to manufacture items it's cheaper to pay the sweat shops. Than you have countries like China because over seas stuff is not made in America it's not held to the same saftey regulations as if it were made in America that's why we had lead poisoning in little childrens toys. So the greedy business gets to save the money they didn't have to spend to be "up to code" and inspecting merchandise. I picture the over seas countries laughing about the "stupid Americans"
Then because most Americans are struggling financially they can't afford those top name brand.
There are so many examples I'd spend weeks typing them all if not years.
Here's another the portable showers for the Military. Soldiers being electricuted to death because of KBR not propperly grounding waterpumps.
It took more than a couple "frying" before anyone even attemped to do anything about it. Is it any surprise KBR is international Company??? I wonder which sweatshop they were made in and why our government would let anyone other than them making the military stuff? Maybe they could start a "manufacturing Unit" so at least the soldiers can no they will be in safer hands. I mean really why not?
It's also disturbing how many Americans are ignorant to all these issues and our legislatures for that matter.
Heres another example of Americans getting screwed by officials.
Eminant Domain, that's where the government can legally steal your land for there own interest such as for the sake of this example, of building a building (maybe shopping mall, dealerships, whatever). Only to have the buisness shipped over seas now you have the useless buildings sitting desolate.
Every one who does know about this and pretends not to care one day when it affects you than I hope you all have the guts to not only care but act also.
Any one in favor of picking a day and meeting at the Capital building or outside of the legislature office???
If we could gather in a massive crowd maybe they would listen. Even if it took more than one meeting???
