Proposed Electoral Reform Demand Statement for Consideration by All Occupy Groups

Posted by & filed under .

 Proposed for Consideration & Further Development

The system is rigged now for the 1% against the 99%.  There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be fixed by the simple restoration of integrity to our electoral process and hence to our government, restoring the representativeness and integrity of that government.

Electoral Reform 2012

Whereas the two entrenched political parties have excluded the other 63 political parties and made it impossible for true democracy to exist in America;

Whereas the U.S. Government, irrespective of which of the two entrenched political parties has been “in power,” has failed to represent We the People and instead legalized high crimes and misdemeanors by Wall Street and various special interests;

Whereas the U.S. national budget is out of control and being used by the two entrenched political parties to reward speculators who contribute to re-election campaigns (with 5% of the taxpayer-funded earmark being the standard “contribution”)

We the General Assembly and all related citizens who place citizenship above party; principle above party; and integrity above the now-standard corrupt practices of both the U.S. Government and the varied corporations that have “exploded” not only the U.S. economy but the global economy,

Demand

As of 6 November 2011, that the President of the United States of America and the Congress of the United States, shall introduce and then pass, no later than 15 February 2012, the Electoral Reform Act of 2012.  The elements of this Act are not negotiable and will include all nine of the provisions as set forth in the Act now online for public review, discussion, validation, and as desired, revision and extension.

If the U.S. Government fails to enact the Electoral Reform Act of 2012 by 15 February 2012, a nation-wide General Strike will be called for, and We the People will immediately begin to work toward the impeachment, recall, and/or public disenfranchisement of each Senator and each Representative failing to support the passage of the Electoral Reform Act of 2012.

 Suggestion: That as many as are inspired to do so take individual action to see these two pages properly presented at Wikipedia/Electoral Reform.  That will in turn be picked up by DuckDuckGo as well as Google and other search engines, and lead to more public dialog & deliberation.

Russell Ackoff:  Don’t keep doing the wrong thing righter, do the right thing.
