If Not Us, Who Will Fight for Real Justice?

By Lenny Brody, Michael McGee, Cynthia Papermaster, Mitchell Rabin, Laura Bonham, D  Posted by Daniel Geery (about the submitter)   3 comments

At the core of the Declaration are justice and the rule of law, or the lack thereof. Many of the listed injuries speak to the loss of legislative and judicial avenues to seek redress. Our American ancestors wouldn't stand for it--they risked all to fight for freedom. 

Our ability to recognize injustice remains as strong today as it was in colonial times--we all know something is very wrong. But what has changed in the course of human events to prevent us from joining together to secure and expand our democracy for future generations?

Politicians from both major parties and their appointees, in league with powerful corporations and the uber-wealthy, haveeviscerated the public trust by creating policies that benefit only the very wealthiest at the expense of the rest of us. King George would have approved.

The Occupy Wall St. movement is giving voice to the many injustices visited upon the middle class and poor in recent decades. The Justice Party is building anelectoral arm to represent our collective cause: a cause for justice and the rule of law, a cause to perfect and expand our democracy, a cause to restore a system of checks and balances; a party for we the people--all of us.

We need your help to succeed. If you don't have time to volunteer or can't afford to donate, please take a few minutes to spread the word about the Justice Party throughout your network.
