How come a nation of the people, by the people and for the people could
How come a Nation built on the premise that all people are created equal and on the act of throwing off kings and royalty could end up with a government that in fact completely ignores the rights and needs of it's people? A government which for all intent and purpose has a new royalty made up mostly of the families of robber barons and bankers? Mostly people who have never worked a day in their lives and have only a thin varnish of education?
How did we get from "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." to a government by the rich, for the rich and the hell with the useless eaters?
How can a government which was created n fact by the throwing off of a government which no longer served the people with these words "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its

I propose a convention held in every neighborhood, every community, every ward, every state and every group of men, women, black, white, yellow or purple. I suggest that WE SET ASIDE THE GOVERNMENT WHICH NO LONGER SERVES THE PEOPLE AND that everyone have a say in setting limits on and making completely open a new government which will renew the covenant between people and the government that they empower.

Neither the system of courts, the system of legislature or the system of management of the government. Above all we need to do away with secrecy which for the most part separates government from the people.
This from someone who it is very doubtful that i will live to see such limits put upon government. I have passed on many times. the last I was asked to come back and bring peace to the world and justice to the American People. I was not told how, I was not asked to do anything else. I still have no idea how to accomplish this other then I was told world peace depends on making the government of the United States subject to it's people.
