The first step in transferring power back to the people starts with a mindset. And that mindset is that the people are empowered when the people are able to make the majority of the decisions for themselves and their families.
Transferring power to the people means putting the people in the driver seat.
The people do not have the power because politicians no longer work for the people as they are supposed to, rather, they work for the system and their own benefit.
One very popular proposal amongst the people is term limits, for obvious reasons. However, We The People Coalition advocate for something even better, putting true public servants into office and politicians who do not want a career in politics or government.
Our Constitution is the framework of our country and clearly defines the roles and powers of our government. Furthermore, it explicitly outlines the concept of federalism.
Unfortunately, our Constitution has NOT been adhered to for a very long time but we must adhere to it once again as a country if we are to take our power back.
Money has corrupted our political process, it always has. Millions and millions of dollars are spent just to keep corrupt politicians in office who do not care about the people.
Undoing this nightmare will put an end to the system’s power and the power of the corrupt politicians.
An empowered people are an educated and informed people, and it is simply not possible for the people to be educated and informed when bills are hundreds, if not thousands of pages long and written to where only legal experts can understand them.
Any bill our politicians introduce and vote on must be simple, concise, easy to understand and consist of no more than one subject per bill.
