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)

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
