Solutions for U.S. is a non-partisan public service organization, with no outside funding, or hidden agenda dedicated to disseminating factual information and developing meaningful, and achievable solutions for us and for U.S.
Never in the history of America has congress had such a low approval rating, currently 9%. Our government is bogged down with in fighting, continual campaigning, fund raising by selling their votes to the highest bidder; and attempts to position each party for re-election, all at the expense of the People. We, you and I, have lost our voice in government. No one in Washington is working for us. Today, during this election cycle, the Supreme Court has personified big business with the Citizens United decision. 96 severely wealthy individuals control the Super Pacs that are influencing the choice of the republican candidate for President of the United States. Those 96 write and pay for most of the media advertising that bombards the airways on a continuing basis 24 hours a day. Each of those 96 undoubtedly have some expectations of their candidate, should he be elected to the most powerful office in the world.
Our basic expectation is that our elected officials, especially those campaigning for re-election, should be able to tell the truth, and they should be attempting to impress us with great meaningful solutions for solving some of our structural problems such as getting America back to work, incentivizing reinvestment in productivity enhancing technology for our manufacturing industries rather than looting the corporate treasury, reducing spending, requiring real ethical standards and accountability in government, providing regulatory over sight on our financial institutions to insure that we never allow Wall Street to cause a melt down of the entire world economy, reversing Citizens United, so that one vote, one voice means something once again, meaningful campaign finance reform.
With few exceptions our congress has no higher goal than being a career politician, being perpetually re-elected. They want to feed their egos and bask in the power of elected office. In doing so they quickly forget who they are supposed to work for, and become pawns for big business, special interest groups, PACs, trade unions, and the lunatic fringe (base) of their own parties. Today their behavior reminds me of inner city gangs, it's the us against them warfare, devil be damned, to heck with the People, it's all about me and my inner circle. Well, we need to remind them who they work for, and who really has the power, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and pledge to fire each and every elected official that does not represent the will of the People!"
We ask that you join us in developing real, meaningful, and achievable solutions for America, and communicating those solutions to our elected officials. If it is to be, it's up to you and me................Our volunteer base is growing daily as citizens have found a voice and renewed sense of hope. You too can make a difference. Sign up for our newsletter, which will be coming soon, and let's get to work fixing Washington D.C.
We warmly invite your suggestions.
Vote wisely, and that's probably not along party lines.
