You Want a Revolution?

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.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)
