An open space for global conversation
I have been thinking about how we can make a significant change to our current system very quickly.
While i know many of our comrades have forsworn the current political institutions, I think that we can make a very fast change by organizing a "Sweep the Congress" initiative.
In this we would elect citizen representatives who are non-party affiliated, who vow to serve one term and return to the citizenry and help the next citizen representative with the knowledge of the system they have gained and to only take funds from the local community. They would make decisions based on what is best for their children's children children. They would respect the voices of the other citizen representatives and work to find consensus on issues. imagine a house of representatives made up of grandmothers, shop keepers, wait people, and bricklayers! Normal people doing the peoples business.
with a 14% favorable rating congress is primed for the taking! (or the taking back as it may be)
