Please.



I used to be optimistic. But now I believe We The People truly have no say much like communism, with govt surveillance & all...


Average U.S. Citizens Have “Little Or No” Influence On Government Policy
Is the U.S. the democracy it claims to be? A study finds that monied interests and big business call most of the shots in U.S. public policy and the average citizen has very little say.

Personally, I think I just need to work only on Getting $$$ out of politics. Its the only thing that will help us. It's the bottom-line basis of most every problem we face.

And after Fast tracking away the Democratic Process, it was the tipping point for me, I'm no longer able to call myself a Democrat. I'm a progressive independent without representation.

Its sad for me. But there it is.
