Taking Our Country Back: Regaining Our
These Are Important Steps To Regaining
Our Constitutional Rights
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 081911
Our forefathers are more than likely rolling in
their graves as they watch our government turn into a police
state. A country that they worked hard to perfect, and fought
and died to protect, is no longer the land of the free. Despite
the cries of uneducated pundits, we are not moving to a system
of socialism, we are moving to a strengthening fascist state.
The only socialism threatening our country is the bail-out of
the ultra-wealthy. The only welfare state dragging this country
down is clearly corporate welfare. "We the people" have been
passed over for the privileged few.
If we ever hope to regain what we have lost,
here are five points that we can start with:
1) Take back the media! Under the current
corporate media we have no 4th Estate watchdog to save us from corrupt
politicians, rich oligarchs and government tyranny. Without this
necessary overseer of democracy we have no accountability for
2) End the
Federal Reserve System and restore the power to issue money
to the U.S. Treasury Dept. End the illicit bank cartel that has
bankrupted our country.
3) Enact sweeping campaign reform and get the big money out of
politics, particularly corporate money. Politicians are elected
to serve "we the people." not corporations. Rescind
Citizens United Act!
4) Kill HAVA! Until it is gone, we have no ballot box
accountability. Electronic voting has been proven to be highly
vulnerable to hacking. Every election cycle since HAVA has had
documented cases of hacking where votes have been stolen, or
added, to influence the outcome of key elections. Give us back
our right to representation through honest, free elections.
5) Get rid of the PATRIOT Act, the Military Commissions Act, and
all other Constitution threatening legislation that have
neutered, if not killed, the dream of our forefathers.
These five points would be
positive steps in restoring the republic of the United States.
Improving Life For
Everyone, Rather Than Just A Select Few:
If you really want to make life
better for us all, here are just a few things to think about...
Rescind the corporations right to
be a person. Make big pharma accountable for their drugs that
are sickening and killing so many. In addition, prohibit them
from lobbying doctors. Prohibit the fluoridation of our water, a
process which is documented to lower IQ. Ban all genetically
modified foods which are harmful to humans. Prohibit the adding
of BGH (bovine growth hormone) to milk. Get us off the
antiquated combustion engine, improving our air quality and
seriously neutering the power of the big oil companies. Stop
giving steroids to animals that are for human consumption.
Return integrity to our government agencies, such as the FDA,
CDC, SEC, FTC, EPA, and the FCC, to name but a few. Do away with
TSA and Homeland Security. Clean up the FBI and the CIA. Reform
our judicial system, including the Supreme Court. Initiate
banking reform and credit card reform. Strengthen our social
programs that benefit mankind, like Medicare and Social
Security. Bolster needed public assistance programs, such as
food stamps, welfare, and unemployment insurance. These are
programs for all people, regardless of political
affiliation. Reform our public education system. Implement free
healthcare for all, regardless of income. Provide free college
for all, educating our society as opposed to dumbing it down.
Get rid of NAFTA and bring our jobs back home. Stop off-shore
corporations from exploiting our country and hurting our
economy, while not paying any taxes back into the system, all so
that they can profit at our expense without paying their fair
If this short list seems a
bit long, it should give you an idea of how backward our society
currently is. We have the capability to do all of these things
in this country, yet a free-for-all system of unchecked
capitalism restricts us from achieving these necessary needs and
improvements. When less than 1% of Americans are allowed to own
all the wealth, that is not a fair system of capitalism. It is a
clear indicator of a flawed system that is exploitable by those
with the means and capability to do so.
If all of this seems too extreme for you, just ask yourself one
thing, WWJD (What would Jesus do?) If you're not religious in
faith, then perhaps check into Gandhi; anyone with a moral
conscience that cares for the many and not just the few.
We are capable of so much more as a species in developing a
society that is beneficial to all. Maybe one day we can come
to an agreement on what is good for everyone.
