Tales of How Badly Our Systemic Corruption Hurts Countless Americans

I keep writing about the systemic corruption in our politics and economics, trying to open people’s eyes on the sources and extent of our troubles and what we can do to repair it all. Yesterday’s article was a deeply personal account. But there are sad stories of so many people these days. Represent.Us, which bravely […]

When People of Power and Money Think That Nobody is Watching…

… children die: (Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “We Demand Better”) Represent.Us fights against corruption in politics. You can join the fight and, if you can, please do. I have written about Represent.Us on numerous occasions. These upstanding people merit as much exposure as they […]

Three Punches for the People: #2 Direct Action

(Note: If you have already read my long essay State of the Revolution, you will find this piece largely redundant. This piece presents a certain portion of the former article for the logistic reasons of focused reading and a focused reference I and others can link to from other articles.)

Oh, President! We Have a Tweet for You! A Real Treat!

Two weeks ago, Represent.Us, which fights for anti-political-corruption laws and a better voting system, came out with a grand idea to take President Trump at his word (about draining the swamp) by doing what he likes the most: issuing an executive order. Now they have a video appeal for you and me and all our friends to send him via […]

President, My President, Drain the Swamp! — With an Executive Order!

Represent.Us, which fights for anti-political-corruption laws and recently added a tactic for overcoming our “lesser” choice voting system, just came up with another grand idea (though it may not amount to more than a grand joke in this case): a petition of Donald Trump to stop political corruption (at least of executive agency appointees and […]

Don’t Overlook This Anti-Corruption Battleground

With all the fuss surrounding Donald Trump, it’s easy to overlook this important American battleground. But we should be aware of it and do what we can there. I have written about it repeatedly.

Breaking: A Delay in South Dakota’s Anti-Corruption Repeal – We can still weigh in!

As I reported two days ago, the state house of “representatives” in South Dakota this Tuesday voted that their corruption is sacrosanct and the will of the voters, who passed an anti-corruption ballot initiative to keep their politicians honest, counts for nothing. In the article I called for a barrage of phone calls of these […]

Rampant Corruption: Nearly this Entire State House of Representatives Should be Impeached

South Dakota is being choked in the strangle hold of its state house of “representatives” who declared a bogus “emergency” in order to not only repeal the anti-corruption ballot initiative passed by voters last November, but also to block any veto referendum from the voters. Yesterday, the crooked politicians voted 54 to 13 to repeal […]

Demand an Anti-Corruption Act in Your State in 2018

Last year, Represent.Us members passed America’s first statewide Anti-Corruption Act in South Dakota. Now we’re going to multiply that success and pass Anti-Corruption Acts in 4-8 states in 2018. Congress won’t fix corruption. We will. The quote from Represent.Us says it all. Working through ballot initiatives we can bypass the corrupt “representatives” to bind them […]
