Problems with Representative Government

Problems with Representative Government

From the beginning of the institution of representative government, sovereignty was supposed to be inherent in small communities, and then only through consent of the governed where representatives supposed to lead. At the time, prior to modern technology, representatives were necessary to ensure the will of the people was ensured for national issues. Today however, representative government is a failure and the general consensus of the people is opposed to what the government is doing. The answer is to to learn how OUR consensus will become the new law of the land.

The model of "Democracy" has failed when it has been implemented in the form of representative government. It hasn't had a fair trial in the USA, and our nation needs more educated voters. Democracy without debate that is factual, balanced, impersonal and non-manipulative has not had it's fair test run, and so the Activism Truth organization seeks to unite people for a new type of true "representation" on deliberative issue specific, non-partisan issues.

A main shortcoming of Representative government today is that we live in a Left/Right paradigm with conservatives and liberals who arbitrarily link issues on their platform that are non-related. Furthermore, there is no actual law that the representatives have to act in regard to the platform they ran for office under. What we commonly find is that people are stuck in this paradigm to vote for candidates that are good on some issues and bad on others, and when they get in office, they only act on behalf of the bad policy choices. How can we vote for Republican's that are Pro-Life but who are frothing at the mouth for nuclear war? How can we vote for Democrats that are for equality of the middle class and in support of retirement benefits for example, but who are equally pumping money into the military industrial complex leaving nothing to help the seniors with? Such policies of the two parties are morally absurd. Both parties are pro-war and pro-authoritarianism. There are however a few decent libertarian minded or progressive candidates who are in favor of being liberally social and fiscally conservative and who are pro-constitution, but they are out numbered today and are not truly offering full solutions the people of the USA can act on.

Direct Democracy allows the true will of the people to be acted upon. Constitutional Direct Democracy give people a real solution that can allow us to protect the constitution, to end all corruption in government, and improve our world. The power of the people is strong with direct democracy, but with representative government, it is nothing. We can't force our politicians vote, they can lie and sell out and there is nothing we can do about it. But with Direct Democracy, we can bypass the legislature and start making real strategic moves to stop lobbyists with the Anti-Corruption Act, we can Nullify the Federal Reserve with State Bank Initiatives, and we can stop all the environmental attacks from Chemtrails, Fluoride, GMOs, Fracking, Uranium mining and more, one by one, using constitutional initiatives. No representatives can do this for us today. The people have to unite, we have to collect signatures and sign petitions, or it will be all over. We will see the same problems in representative government over and over, and the world will become more dangerous and less peaceful.

The power to formulate laws and policies must be delivered to the people and Activism Truth is working on providing the digital framework for a modern E-Democracy system that will allow us to exceed prior possibilities. Polls will be used to let the public define our important issues and decisions, and they will be established by well informed choices. A Quorum will be established to allow facts to be presented in a non-personal and non-manipulative, well balanced factual method. We will seek public participation in our polls to ensure representation in our quorums and with our E-democracy tools cover a diverse group of people. The results of our polls will form our direction and actions to initiate constitutional Legislation, Referendums, Recalls, Nominations and Citizen Grand Juries where available.

Our nomination process will ensure a victory for representative government because unlike government of the past, the future representatives will not carry ideologies as much as they will pledge to vote on behalf of their constituents, using our E-democracy platforms to engage the public in deliberative quorums and debate, arriving at consensus that their constituents agree upon. We seek to save the constitution, by amending it, to create laws that stop corporate abuse and lobbyist influence over the influence of the people. The politicians will simply become button pushers for the people, rather than power elites for their own self interests. Constitutionalists seek to shrink government power and taxation and to empower communities sovereignty over the state and federal government. We need a grassroots up system of government and direct democracy is the solution to create a true constitutional republic. We must end the top down control system, representative government can not be left alone to create it's own checks and balances. Unbridled power corrupts absolutely and the people must become the 4th system of checks and balances.

You and I need our communities to take back our states rights, we need to replace the judges, the sheriffs, the city councils, and all politicians with candidates like Greens, Libertarians and new Representative Direct Democracy candidates.

Regardless of what politicians are in change, the people can always overcome with direct democracy. Technology ensures we don't have to wait for politicians anymore. A true Quorum E-Democracy is on the horizon. Stand with Activism Truth and witness the evolution of governance.

"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

— Thomas Jefferson, 1816.
