Forum Post: We Are Our Own People

The government is set up so we the people avoid joining together and beginning a revolution. If this happens, then corporations stop making money and everyone else stops paying their debts. The best system that was made was the political system in which we don't elect people or run for positions based on current issues, but rather which color is to our liking. The people in turn have been separated into nice groups of democrats, republicans, libertarians, green party, etc. where they will never agree on anything and simply constantly argue about colors - avoiding the scary possibility of revolting.

Now is the time to put away childish things. It doesn't matter if someone is a republican or democrat and it doesn't matter if someone sounds like a libertarian or conservative. We need to join together without allowing our differences to become our fatal flaw. I propose we occupy our government. We have more than enough people to actually run for positions and once elected to bring about our own reformations. We the people are our own leaders - never forget that.

Wrong. The system is so corrupt that you would never be able to win. Look at the Tea Party. Did they change things for the better? No,

Reboot. Start by not reelecting ANYBODY. Kick them all out.

We have better chances reforming this way than anarchy. Why? Because people won't actually go around fighting police, breaking windows, shooting at the White House, killing all of the representatives etc. Our current system is set up similar to a monarchy, encouraging tyranny. This is the only non-aggressive way.

In my opinion, you are exactly right.... So long as we restore the Constitution as planned.
