Re-claim  the Citizen role in the political ecosystem. 

As Americans, we the people, continue to be troubled by an array of problems facing our nation and the failure of the political system to address them. Trust in our governing institutions has reached historic lows as Congress’ approval ratings sinks into the single digits. Gridlock and hyper-partisanship have paralyzed our governing bodies, resulting in the least productive Congress in recent history and a political climate that makes problem solving all but impossible. The public’s voice is increasingly drowned out as political leaders become ever-more dependent on a relatively small group of large donors and special interests. A growing number of Americans are becoming alienated from the political process. 

 

Yet we are facing major challenges that need to be addressed:

 

  • Distrust and alienation from the federal government and the toxic political process

  • The fiscal health of the nation: The budget, debt and deficit

  • Unfairness of the tax system: tax code of 64, 000 pages

  • Inequality of opportunity, income, wealth and employment

  • An unjust, dysfunctional and expensive healthcare system

  • An out of control legal system, police and prison system

  • Failure to respond to climate change

  • The surveillance state: Privacy and dignity under assault by government and corporations

  • A decaying infrastructure of roads, and bridges

  • A declining public educational system out of reach for many Americans 

 

We the people can and must do better...and we need you to take part in an effort to ReImagine the Constitution to reflect the realities of the twenty first century. With so much at stake for our nation, it’s time to stop kvetching and start acting.
