I see a lot of talk on here about capitalism, democracy, republic ,socialism, and etc. So many people trying to make so many solutions. The solution has been laid out for you. If you think what we have here today is a result of our system, you are partialy correct. Thing is, this is not the vision that was set forth for us. The visonaries lived under real oppression, real monarchy, real destitude(first arrivals) real war(in our homeland), real revolution, real free markets, and real death threats. Then they really did a lot of work. They drafted a document that set forth a vision. To let the people control the government. Instead of letting government control the people. They did not intend for elections to elect leaders, Rather they intended to elect public servants.

This country belongs to and is supposed to be run by WE THE PEOPLE. Over the years, generations of Americans have let elected public servants to enact laws that allow forces other then WE THE PEOPLE to influence laws and regulations. Forces that have not always had Americas, or your, best interest at heart.

We don't need a new system. We need to FIX our system. The only way to do that is to ensure that our elected public servants are not sussesable to such influence. Reversing those laws, and getting money out of politics, would be a huge step. Removing and reforming campaign finance laws restores the power to WE THE PEOPLE. If enough Americans demand something, our servants MUST listen.

There is no other system in the history of man that allows for more opportunity for more people than what this country was supposed to be.

In 2002 Rockefeller authored his autobiography “Memoirs” wherein, on page 405, Mr. Rockefeller writes:

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as "internationalists" and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order." - David Rockefeller

The Declaration of Independence was written colonial elites and the Constitution wasn't exactly written by paupers. Saying they lived in destitution is a big, flat out lie.

All very well. But it wont change that this system is a leech to this planet, and might very well deplete all its resources within 100-150 years. When that happens were so deep in the shit that we wont be able to get out anymore.

Hello SS. I did not intend the anger comment about your article. Thank you for this. What are your ideas about how to fix and how to get accurate representation?

Well,I laid a few out in the blog. I do not have the answers. However I do believe that if we can get enough people behind the sigular idea, of only U.S. citizens should be allowed to donate to political candidates. We can get on the road to fixing it. If enough people get behind an idea, they will have to listen.

You hit it on the head! We need campaign finance reform first and foremost!

It would then allow us to handle the social issues. Being truely represented to our government by our servants.
