Congress is broken. But we can fix it.

There’s no denying that our Federal government’s systemic corruption, dysfunction, and inefficiency is intolerable. The Problem gets worse and harder to correct each year that the People fail to take action.

Nationwide Initiatives are the only permanent way to solve the Problem. Neither the President nor the Supreme Court have the power to solve the Problem, and Congress will not solve it. Though the States do have the power by repeated Constitutional Conventions, they do not use it. This website defines and proposes an Initiatives Amendment Solution for adoption by a single Constitutional Convention limited to this single Amendment, then ratified by the States. It uses features already proved reliable and successful. It describes how the People can implement this Solution over vigorous opposition from Congress, corporations, the ultra-wealthy, and some of the States. It will not be quick or easy, but it is feasible and ongoing.

The People will manage and operate this Solution, independent of the Government, without risk of corruption, funded as an entitlement. People can periodically improve the Initiatives Solution, and if it fails to meet their expectations, the People can gracefully repeal it and return to our current system.

Problem

Congress is in a grave state of systemic corruption, dysfunction and inefficiency. In return for reelection esteem and quid pro quo non-contemporaneous compensation, Congress has willingly ceded control of our Great Nation to a Plutocracy of large corporations and the super-rich, fronted by their hordes of lobbyists and media propagandists. Today, the problem has no solution; Plutocrats’ control strengthens while they placate the People with inconsequential appeasements and entertaining distractions. (more…)

Solution

The only solution that can address these issues is to establish a Constitutional Process for checks, balances, and remedies by the People. We know that a workable system of checks and balances was a primary focus of our Constitution when it was ratified in 1788. Today, the regulating laws meant to curtail government power and prevent corruption are completely irrelevant and ineffective. However, the Declaration of Independence gives the People the right and duty to alter our Government. We the People must stand up and reclaim our government. (more…)

The Campaign

It is absolutely possible to reinstate the power of the American People and regain control of our government. Are you ready to take action?

United States Constitutional Amendment – We must first amend our Constitution in order to return to its original objective of creating an effective system of checks and balances. This amendment will allow for Nationwide Initiatives governed for the People and by the People.

The People Have a Major Strategic Advantage

State Initiatives enable 70 percent of the 34 States needed to call for the Amendment and 63 percent of the 38 States needed to ratify the Amendment. If we use State Initiatives well, we are more than half way to passing this Amendment!
