Thats it. One hour of work. This is what most Americans think is "self governance". Its not. Its not even close to being that simple.

Corporations spend billions lobbying. And hundreds of hours. We cannot compete with the money. But we can compete with the time. And to all those that claim people are too busy- thats bullshit. Turn off the TV. Put down the laptop. If someone told you that you'd get an extra $5,000 for finding 5 hours a month to volunteer, 99% of people could make it happen.

It's time for people to get off their asses and start doing. Stop bitching. Start doing.

The worshipers of the Church of the State have faith in their holy leaders, and faith in their ability to change the tide of massive amounts of money and corruption by checking a box. It's a tough hill to climb to get believers to open their eyes.
