American democracy is under attack; tyrants wielding money as free speech and power have taken over. America grew strong on democracy through the hard work and sacrifice of the American people and the people have thrived on the fruits of the democracy they have created. In recent decades those fruits have been poisoned by dishonest politicians who value money and power over the trust that the American people have placed in them. The poison has leached the curative properties from the fruits of democracy and the people who are the democracy are suffering. Americans require honesty and fairness from its representatives to properly care for and nurture their democracy and these are missing .
Washington DC: Once the shining symbol of a thriving nation has become a festering wound spreading disease through America using a media that propagates dishonesty rather than keeping their government honest. Investigative reporting is nearly a thing of the past, the government threatens those who are working for honesty with imprisonment and even death. We have a misinformed people who lack the knowledge needed to properly exercise their right to elect a government that represents them. Americans are poorer, sicker and hungrier than they have been in decades. Their government now holds money, health care and food as ransom to feed its own greed and desire for power. It has taken hope from the people and turned it into dispair then wields that despair as slaver uses a lash. Hopelessness leads to submission, submission leads to oppression and oppression leads to slavery.
However, the people still have the ability to heal the wound they only have to hold of the power and apply it. Openess, transparency and honesty must be restored to Washington and the media so the wound can heal. The people cannot expect the government to help, to give up easily. Expect it to use everything within its power to destroy any hope the people may have in restoring democracy. But there is power in truth and it must be used to return American to the shining example it once was.
To restore democracy the people must unite. They must stand up and loudly declare that they have had enough of the lies and misuse of power. That democracy is theirs and they will have it represent them. As we speak the forces of unity are gathering for the people. Many are organizing and many more must participate. On January 20, 2011 a coalition “For the People” will kick off with events in Washington DC and throughout the nation. Join the “For the People Coalition” ( http://www.coffeepartyusa.com/content/for-the-people) and let your voices be heard.
