From Democracy to Hypocrisy and Back in 500 Words or Less

Our Constitution never mentions the word democracy, it says we have a right to a republican form of government, we live under a republic not a democracy. Republic means elected officials have supreme power, no sitting president has ever been arrested for any of the crimes they instigated, they operate like a crime family. At the urging of Presidential and Vice Presidential war profiteers; on October 16, 2002 the US Senate and Congress passed the Iraq War Resolution. From February of 1991 when daddy’s Iraq war ended until March 19 2003 when Junior’s Iraqi war began, the United States conducted a war of attrition against Iraq, UN weapons inspectors couldn’t find any weapons of mass destruction, other than weapons made from chemicals the US and allies sold Saddam before Bush Sr.’s Iraq War. No Iraq connection to the 9/11 attacks was ever verified. We know they lied to us and those lies cost American lives and national debt. Yet big chunks of money remain in the pockets of criminals holding public office. From 2004 to 2006, a total of 151 Congress members invested between 78.7 million dollars to 195.5 million dollars in companies that had contracts with the Pentagon, which brought them profit of between 15.8 million dollars and 62 million dollars, according to a nonpartisan study. The Iraq war is a war of aggression against international treaties and of US law prohibiting war crimes codified:18 U.S. Code § 2441. They say money did not influence their decision making. If you go in front of a judge and claim stupidity as a defense the judge will say in effect, Ignorantia juris non excusat, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Expecting poor uneducated Americans to have better morals than themselves is not a valid republic let alone democracy. They know they are criminals so they use Article 1 sections 3 and 6, Article 2 section 4 claim immunity from prosecution for their crimes. Yet other Sections read they can be held liable and subject to indictment according to the law just like any other citizen. So it becomes obvious they are no better than common criminals and they are unwilling to police themselves. That is why We the People need to organize and demonstrate that a majority of us believe it is a crime for our so called leaders to vote for a war of their choice and profit. As much as I believe the system is criminal and needs to be changed, I also believe that our only choice is to try and work from within the system. That is why I’m collecting signatures to get on the ballot for Wisconsin’s 7th District Representative in US Congress. As the first Direct Participatory Democracy candidate I’m building a system where the every citizen of our District can vote on law and appropriation before Congress and when elected will enter the vote of the majority.
