OVERVIEW OF THE ISSUES:
Today, some Issues have a ~70% approval rating, but get absolutely no movement at the Federal level (approval rate of Congress ~10%). The framework of our Constitutional Government (Gerrymandering, etc.) and the lack of Democracy within Political Parties (Superdelegates, etc.) have resulted in bottlenecks which effectively redirect, blunt, or outright block the will of the People. The Challenge facing the People stems from the question: How can more direct pathways of Citizen choice be injected into these Institutions and Restore control of our Electoral Process to ensure it reflects the Voices of Citizens?
Society faces one of the largest instances of Wealth Inequality the Country has ever known; where Families in the top 10% of wealth distribution holds 76% of all Family wealth. And we haven't even begun to talk about Corporate wealth, Campaign Finance corruption, or the impacts of the Citizens United case. The Challenge facing the People stems from the question: How can we blunt the influence of Money in Politics and Restore control of our Electoral Process to ensure it reflects the Voices of Citizens and not Organized Wealth?
