Revolution by online
Millions of others do too. I will
make the assumption that you are familiar with the Justice Party (JP), its
platform, and Rocky Anderson in particular, the party's nominee for President.
If my assumption does not apply, please check the links below and explore them
to the extent you can.
I likewise present this brief
summary of the JP goals:
- Transform our government so it works in the interest
of the people, including later generations.
- Elevate awareness of the corrupting influence of
money in our government, along with the fact that there is no longer a "lesser
of two evils." Democrats and Republicans pander to the same interests, which
are not "of or for the people."
- Demonstrate that grassroots organizing, including
social media and other democratized communications, can trump the taint of
money in our form of governance.
- Educate people about issues having the most impact
on ourselves and people of the world, later generations included.
- Obtain governing authority through vigorous election
campaigns, rather than watching the elimination of the public interest by those
now buying Congress and the White House.
- Convince others that this can and must be done, for
their own sake and to rebuild the foundations of our country.
As Rocky has noted often,
this is a grassroots movement, not his but ours (although he has excellent leadership
qualities, including speaking skills, experience and proven track record,
charisma; he also consistently speaks the truth and faithfully does his
homework on the issues).
So if you want a revolution
you can get behind, feel good about, and realistically hope to succeed, I ask
your help on behalf of the Justice Party. We need to reach out with JP ideas to
as many people as possible in language they understand and can relate to. We need
to them to shout, "Right on!" and convince them our goals are both responsible
and possible, as we know they are.
Your ideas articulated,
multiplied by thousands or tens of thousands of others, makes all the
difference in the world. So please let's not sit on our hands and give our
future away to the all-too-present forces of darkness.
Contributions from each of us
will vary, so picking reasonable personal goals is a recommended place to start.
Lighting matches in the dark seems like a good analogy of what we need to do.
If we all lend a hand in making The Justice Party and what it stands for appear
in as many places as possible, we have a real chance to elevate awareness of
this unique possibility before us.
Writing articles and opeds is
great, but not for everyone, nor is it necessarily best. Oftentimes, the
comment you read at the bottom of a major article will be what you actually
remember, or it might redirect you to something as important--in this case, such
as what the Justice Party would do once in office.
