Uniting The United State of America

The Solution to all our problems ?

Recently one question has been in the forefront in my mind...

Why cannot we get public policies that benefit the majority implemented ?

After spending many hours studying the data I finally began to understand the situation.

The Good News is that WE HAVE A SOLUTION !

Here is the summary of my findings :

1Politics 101 - 95% of the time the person who wins an election is the person who has the most money 

2. Money
Only 0.01% of the people in the US have large amounts of money.

The average income of a working family is only 50K
46.5 million of Fellow Americans live below the poverty line ($1.25/ day)

Politicians need money to win elections.
And just now only the 0.01% and large Corporations have the money.
So they are forced to hob nob with them and cater to their needs.
Otherwise they (the politicians) will loose THEIR livelihood.

They (the politicians) gain nothing by hanging out with us.

3. Customer Service
In addition to the politicians not wanting to listen to us - they do not even have the MAN POWER to listen to us.  Most of the petitions that are sent to their offices go unread.  The ratio of customer service personnel to the number of people they have to listen to in an electorate is something like 100,000 to one - and most of these are minimum wage folks or interns.

4. Media
Main stream media now belongs to 5 Corporations.  Everytime WE donate money, they end up in their coffers - majority of this money then end up with the 1%

5. Us vs Them mentality - this is the scariest fact
The "main stream" media, facebook and other Social media have been very successful in dividing the 99%

Conservatives vs Liberal
Muslims vs Christians
Male workers vs Female workers
Pro choice vs Pro life
Union workers vs Non Union workers  etc etc etc

For the first time in the US we have been brainwashed into thinking that a person with a different ideology is "OUR ENEMY" 

Not a fellow American with a different point of view

We in turn play in to this theme by demonizing folks that have a different point of view.  And this theme gets reinforced.

Scientists are beginning to prove that we are BORN with a set of basic values. We "hear" and "talk" a different language depending on what we believe in.

Here is my ONE PAGE blog on this topic

Two practical examples I came across recently -  
a. Some Conservatives who truly believe in GMO labeling are unwilling / scared to sign a "Move on" petition
b. A person who desperately need medical care is refusing to sign up for "Obamacare"  

"We the people"  need to understand what is actually happening to us.
Then we need to take steps to reverse this situation.

The Solution -  We need to UNITE and bring people with different political ideologies together 

And here is one way we can do that 

We need to share this knowledge with everyone we know.
One person at a time.

Please click here to learn the 6 steps that you could take to have this conversation.

Yes it is an uphill battle
But it is a battle we can win

We have to have this conversation with one person at a time

Together we can create a ground swell that will be hard to defeat

And that my friends is the only way we will win this battle ...
