American Democracy and Politics gone astray! - YJ Draiman
In reviewing the current political mood and elections in America (that includes city state county and federal), it clearly reveals, that in recent elections, that some of the divisions of our country and culture, as framed by politicians and special interests - often pit people, job security and health benefits against taxpayers and corporate interests. No matter what we believe might be best for our communities, cities, schools, jobs or country - near term or longer term - the forces of change are here.
Take a close look at one of the largest inter-generational protest gatherings of our times as the drama between well-financed political forces and hard-pressed budgets collide with proposed cuts in educational programs. This political drama is accompanied by the silencing of workers that often trade salary for longer-term benefits. What does the future hold for a country where tens of millions believe that only the rich and powerful shuffle the deck while others are dealt frequent losing hands? What is our purpose?
The mega-selling of American democracy is the major political Parties invention, and the political machine of the two major parties are its beneficiaries.
Moreover, the major losers are the American people.
You need to make a ruckus. Do not fall into the seductive trap of cynicism. That is what the sellers of American democracy are counting on. If you give up on our system of government, they win everything.
Let us present qualified candidates, where money is not the criteria.
Register to vote and vote; the masses outnumber the special interests at least 8-2, by our massive voting block we can take back our government and have it serve all the people, not just the select few.
Power to the people!
