We the sovereign people are powerful beyond imagining, if we're organized for anything. Not just casually organized for anti-war protests, flash mobs, NGOs that prop up the failed status quo, and the corrupt political parties, but formally organized into cross-country citizen action groups for every proactive anything, as well as for remedies outside the box of mega-corrupt representative govt.A hundred years ago, such citizen organizations were driving the Reform Era -- the greatest democracy movement in recorded history. Citizens then put together the greatest corruption-fighting machine ever devised by ordinary people. (See especially, "2nd Look--State Govt Unconstitutionalities Against Citizen-Proposed Law", 08 October 2006, on this blog.)
Massively, seriously, formally organized outside the corruption box of of pure representative govt and its two major political parties, we can do any of the many things that have to happen so that we get our country back from the fascist superrich, corporate predators, and predator politicians. And not only get the country back, but prevent any future recurrence of a three-branch fascist despotism.
Unorganized, we're nothing.
Organized, we can field third and fouth parties whose roles will be as minimally corrupted focus points of reform idelolgies within a national govt of direct democracy melded to nonpartisan rep govt. The DD/nonpartisan-rep-govt political dynamic is the only way to eliminate the systemic problems that led to the Bush-Cheney fascist despotism. And we desperately need third and fourth parties whose "genuine candidates" will supply the reservoir of human resources for a heavily regulated, subordinate, but still-strong representative govt.
Unorganized, we can't reach minimal corruption -- or the fascist despotism cure and preventative of DD/nonpartisan-rep-govt.
Why do you want to go on grinding your same old axes, wringing your hands, pointing fingers, doing nothing, waiting for govt to save you, staying unorganized? Why the insanity of constant repetition that always gets the same failed result in corrupt rep govt? Why put servile and failed consumerism above societal improvement -- above citizen responisbility? Why do you want to be unorganized?
Organized, we could attract most of the 100 million withdrawn, non-voting citizens to help take back our country. Unorganized, we can barely attract the failed status quo's servile of the left. Unorganized, we're nothing.
Organized, we can form across state lines to review, question, and attack every little unconstitutional thing that our corporate-predator-owned governments are doing to us. You know that's a lot. Unorganized, we can barely see across our towns. Unorganized, we're nothing. Why do you want to be unorganized?
Saul Alinski's efforts, 1940s-1970s, organized ordinary people of the left inside the system and did great things. It won't work for us. The corruption machines won. The system is sewed up. Every traditional approach inside the failed rep govt system, that we could use to break the tyranny of fascist money-power, has been anticipated and blocked. We have to work outside the system, outside the political party corruption machines. So organizing inside the system won't work. But Alinski had two other ideas that are still good for us. The first was -- see the world the way it is -- and organize. The second was -- fix on the world that you want to have -- and organize.
Nation-ranging citizen action groups (CAGs) can bring us that tandem vision.
Organized, we can have anything. Unorganized, we're nothing.
Organized, we can make political mountains move. Unorganized, we can barely make spit. Why do you want to be unorganized?
Organized, we can get our Reform Era legacy of constitutionally-defined, corruption fighting, direct democracy away from the unconstitutional and arbitrary controls of state govts. Organized, we have the legal power to make state govts stop the unconstitutional delays, alterations, and rejections of the constitutionally-defined, citizen-proposed law that has the power to kill corruption machines. Unorganized, we're nothing. Why do you want to be unorganized?
Organized, our direct democracy can kill corruption machines and make representative govt strong, adding the sovereign people to the checks and balances of co-equal branches of public servants.
Unorganized, we have to sit and watch as corruption machines in all three branches of national govt collapse checks and balances, make a mockery of our rule of law, obstruct justice for constitutional and felonious criminals, privatize and negate our electoral system with fascist computer hacking, violate our Constitutional rights, commit the constant bribery of "money equals free speech" in our politics, commit felony murder against our soldiers in Iraq, commit felony murder against kidnapped detainees in a worldwide torture/murder gulag, make unconstitutional and treasonous ex post facto law to block their criminal prosecution for torture/murder in their gulag, illegally wiretap US citizen communications and bank transactions to ultimately criminalize dissent, and financially rape our nation in a hundred ways for the benefit of their globalized and stateless superrich, fatally weakening our nation for collapse in any catastrophe.
Organized, we can stop the race of fascist corporatism and the international central banking cabal into Bush's media-hushed North American Union of US, Mexican, and Canadian fascist governing elites. Unorganized, we will just sit and watch as the treaties establishing Canusmex and central banking's Amero currency do here what the French referendum barred from happening to the EU member nations last year.
The French 2005 referendum rejected the EU Constitution, which was nothing but an enslavement document ending all national sovereignty in the EU member nations for the benefit of fascist corporatism and its superrich owners. If we remain unorganized and Bush has his way, the NAU will set up with all of the EU Constitution's corporate-nazi features -- all of them dirty, ugly, mean, and nasty -- locked up in a Canusmex treaty that we will be powerless to stop and that will become fundamental constittutional law under the US Constitution's treaty clause.
Organized, our direct democracy and sovereign, fully independent, citizen lawmaking can end the Bush-Cheney fascist despotism, rip its unAmerican laws out of our legal fabric, imprison its treasonous constitutional criminals, heavily regulate corporations and the misuse of money in politics, prevent any recurrence of fascist despotism, and make our representative govts strong for the people. Unorganized, we're nothing but meat on the hoof for the superrich's slaughterhouses.
Why do you want to be unorganized?
Pick a national CAG name -- CAG-USA, Direct Democracy League, I&R Federation, Citizen Law Society, Unity America, Citizens Union -- whatever. Then start a chapter in your small town, city neighborhood, side of the city, local library, rural county, whatever. Claim that you are the so-and-so chapter of the national CAG name you've chosen. Begin organizing and advertizing your group online -- and network with any other chapter using the national CAG's name. Change your national CAG's name if some network with a different name is attractive.
Play it by ear. Just organize, fellow babies, organize.
