By the People, For the People, We the People!
For some reason, in this great Country of ours, we got off track with just who runs the country. When the brilliant forefathers of this great Republic thought about how this government should work, they knew that it must be controlled by the people. However, in the late 1700′s, it was a little difficult to communicate one’s wishes from the distant lands of the newly formed United States of America. So, in their infinite Wisdom, they created a government with representatives elected by the people to be their proxies in Washington.
This system of government has suited us well until the most recent Congresses. I’m no historian but sometime following WWII our leadership in Washington started us down a path of increasing socialism that has brought us to the brink of disaster today. Our Values and our democracy are at stake, here, and it should be the most important issue to every American.
I conceived this website as a forum modeled after the Open Source Software movement. It occured to me that involving the People in the Congressional process is not that difficult if we stop and take a close look at the problems and develop an application to solve them. The intention of this site is to focus on the records and positions of the currently elected Congress and allow the people to determine if they are satisfied with these representatives and the legislation they have put forth or not.
As we grow in numbers, the people that participate in this process will increasingly have their voices heard as we’ll present every piece of legislation for review and vote right here. Our hope is that we’ll create such an involvement that the Voice of the People will have to adhere to and our representatives will have to listen to US over the special interest’s and lobbiest’s. If they don’t, we’ll start the impeachment process right here and right now.
Please join us in representing the true Voice of the People. Let’s take back our government from the greedy career politicians and the special interest groups and lend that power to people we can trust. But, most importantly, lets have our voices heard.
