In the elections that follow, “The People’s Party” could then present candidates who pledge to take zero money from any interest groups and represent the majority interests of their constituents. I’d love to see what that election might accomplish. It’s time to heed the voices of our own forefathers and alter our government so we don’t end up abolishing it.
Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis made a statement many years ago that is as true today as the day it was penned: “We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” I think it’s time to ask ourselves whether we have the former or the latter, because I agree with Justice Brandeis that we can’t have both, and if it’s the latter, it’s time to take real action for real change.
Happy July 4th and let’s remember why we declared our Independence in the first place!
