The revolutionary war. Started and fought and won. Cause? Was corruption of leadership and misrepresentation of the colonies here. The abuse and exploitation of the colonists. This was the cause of birth for the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.
Result: We have abuse and misrepresentation to this day, only being committed here by our own elected officials being bought by American business.
The Civil War, largely fought for the same reasons. North practices against the practices of the South. One truly humane action taken was to free the slaves.
Result: The Federal government and the population at large turned a blind eye on the continuing practice of slavery being continued under another name. This continued widely unchecked until the 1940's. It has still not gone away completely. Debtors prisons are still around they just are not identified as such. This also fueled by business greed and a timid Federal Government.
We have sent men to outer space. We have landed on the moon. We are capable of doing the incredible the what was thought impossible.
Now we have the technology and the wealth to change our fuel base from fossil fuel which is killing us to a clean energy structure that would include Solar Power, Wind Power, Tidal Power, Geo-thermal technology, and Hydrogen fuel and power generation.
We are not pushing this or embracing this. WHY? Again a timid Federal Government and corrupt Business.
We are still the richest country in the world and yet we have a multitude of homeless people. And are tearing down abandoned Homes. Why? A timid government being influenced by corrupt and greedy Business. Again things have not much changed since the original revolutionary war.
What has been missing all this time? Alertness to creeping corruption a timid Federal Government, and a lack of proper involvement of the Population at large.
Now we have movements with the proper motivation and communication like never before.
Let us not drop the ball this time.
Lets take it all the way!
