We The People Stimulus Package

Democracy is not a spectator sport...

In 1776 one of our founding fathers Thomas Paine, anonymously published a pamphlet entitled “Common Sense” which challenged the authority of the British government and the royal monarchy. The plain language that Paine used resonated with the common man and was the first publication to openly push for independence.

Maintaining “the cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind,” Paine passionately argued for independence from Great Britain, and painted the picture of a prosperous future, if freed from the oppressive and economically draining English government.

Now two hundred and thirty three years later, America once again finds itself being taxed without representation, and being drained economically by an oppressive government.

This time, it’s own government run amuck.

What would Thomas Paine say about America’s plight today?

Great video! I have to say I agree with about 95% of it. People have to say "We are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore" or things will continue business as usual. Thanks for posting that.

No problem Mason, although the post doesn't seem to be very popular. LOL! I agree with most of what he said except for eliminating the electoral and the national service idea.

I'm with you. I like what he is saying all except for the national service, our voluntary force does quite well as it is and if it ain't broke don't fix it.
