It is time for Americans to get their heads out of the sand and commit to changing our nation!

Corruption has seeped into every form of our government and is turning us into a tyrannical nation void of constitutional rights!

For instance, our court system is corrupt in that judge's will prosecute in favor of being paid off! Did you know that income tax is illegal? Yes that's right, the bill was never legally ratified. 3/4 of the states have to approve of the bill. At the time, there were 48 states, which means that 36 states had to approve of the bill for ratification. Only about TWENTY states legally approved of the bill.

For instance, in Kentucky, the legislature approved of a faulty transcription of the bill that left out the part about income tax. When that was cleared up, Kentucky actually REJECTED the bill, but it was counted as being approved. And this is just one example.

Yet people go to prison for not paying something that was never made legal in the first place...

We are paying trillions upon trillions to the bankers that continuously steal from us through over complicated MADE UP derivatives and interest on money that was never there in the first place. Our economic system is based upon DEBT. They are ILLEGALLY stealing from us.

We are being lied to and kept from the truth. There are 36 levels ABOVE top secret. What are they hiding from us?

Military and police officials are being trained for CIVILIAN takeovers, gun confiscations and quarantines!

Homeland Security has bought 1.4 BILLION 40 caliber rounds of ammunition recently. That is over 10 times more than they have bought in previous years. That is way more than what is needed for training.

There are videos of MILITARY officials working with the police force to make arrests at a protest. This is unlawful and denies the Logan act.

They are just following orders.

There are two mottoes that seem to be at the precipice of the elite's mode of attack. " Divide and conquer" and "problem reaction solution" <---- THINK ABOUT THIS.

We are divided from each other in every way we can think of. Race, Class, Sexuality, Religion, Political views. Think of the shootings at the sihk temple and how the media twists these events to divide us further.

We are heading toward an orchestrated economic collapse if we don't stop the corruption and go back to a constitutional, true democracy.

People are being arrested for video taping the police which is perfectly legal!

Our freedom is slipping away. People in the military are already being required to use RFID chips and they are being put into many credit cards. We are being scanned at airport terminals. 20,000 drones are going to be placed across America to spy on us! Face Recognition software is coming onto the market in order for people to get "discounts"

The ARMY ADMITS to leaked documents about creating RE-EDUCATION CAMPS. DING DING DING.. does that ring a bell??? Goodbye America, hello Kim Jong Il 2.0!!! Hello worshiping a dictator as if he is god while we are being used, controlled, and starved!

This is already long but I'm just at the tip of the iceburg with what has been going on.

We need to stand the f*ck up, stop fighting amongst ourselves, and bring a change to our governmental system. We need to tell the people that are running this country that we won't let them take away our constitutional rights. That we won't let them steal from us, kill us and control us. We are free people full of power and we just need a kick in the butt to start moving things back in the right direction and away from an economic crisis!

I think most people here know all that and agree and follow the advice of the late George Carlin. Become a spectator.
That's the route I've taken at least. Most people are stupid and we've fallen into a pure democracy and the stupid majority sheep get to decide for everything for everyone.

We cannot really control a lot of this, I am sorry.

The only way I've ever heard of to do this would be to eliminate elections and choose legislators by random lottery. Corruption in government comes from involving money in the election (re-election, really) process which creates a quid pro quo mentality. Eliminate the dough and you eliminate the corruption.

This is how juries are chosen, and when given all the relevant facts, juries tend to make good decisions, and most people on juries take their roles seriously.

With 550-whatever legislators, random draw is more than likely to pull a representative demographic sample of the population, and before anyone makes the obvious objection, I'd like to remind everyone how few rocket surgeons are among the ranks of our legislators.

Either that or public funding for all elections (which would be cheap since WE OWN THE AIRWAVES on which TV/radio/internet stations broadcast, and the vast majority of expenses in a political campaign come from media buys). Municipalities are already doing this, and McCain basically begged for it in '08 since Obama was a campaign funding juggernaut that year, lest any from the right object on grounds of liberty.

Money, especially with the oligopoly the DNP and GOP hold, would still lead to quid pro quo in an election system.

Though, the one federal, elected position left, president, should switch to 1 6-year term (since president is now a popularity contest, might as well let it go full-on pop and give the people what they want...the newly appointed congress should be taking away all the illegally seized power from that office by the time they get sworn in, anyway.)

Lotteries would also need to be staggered as we couldn't have 500 newbies every X years...1/4 replacement every year with 4 year terms in the senate and the house.

It's not nearly as ridiculous as you portray it. Again, this is how juries are chosen, and I'd take 12 random citizens in a jury over 12 random members of congress in a Jeopardy tournament slanted toward civics any day.

I highly support Lottocracy, based solely and how much more exciting it would be.

We should have a Lottocratic 1 year-term dictatorship.

It's not nearly as ridiculous as you portray it. Again, this is how juries are chosen, and I'd take 12 random citizens in a jury over 12 random members of congress in a Jeopardy tournament slanted toward civics any day.

All political organizations are ridiculous.

This would eliminate political organizations and simply leave us with a legislative body focused on the civic good.

My concept of political organization is apparently more expansive.

Government entities needn't be political organizations. If you're saying any entity which involves politics, then we need to start including The Mickey Mouse Club in our discussions.

The courts, until recently, we devoid of politics. Now, not so much, be we can eliminate politics and still have a government. Or, in theory we can.
War is over, if you want it.
