I think the only way to take back our countries (I'm in Australia) is to ban ALL political parties.
In truth they are undemocratic because they force the party line on all reps.
We are all entitled to a LOCAL voice in the Goverment and that was stolen by the major parties..

Oppps, s&f for u

I must say.. as an American..

I 100% AGREE!!!!

honestly, they serve no purpose in a Democratic system.. it is simply a way to control .. politics and political coffers = control by the wealthy.

Eliminate political parties, and put a hard cap on the amount of money you're allowed to spend on a single campaign, differing caps by level of position. Then give equal air time for political advertisements to ALL candidates running for that particular office.

It would truly revolutionize politics, and give a much broader range of opinion in our Representatives..

Some would say "but no one could agree, and nothing could get done" .. well, a no vote on every bill is better than a yes vote only on bills that harm this country.

"british national party"

....yeah wtf man?

YAY! Somehow I fixed it. I changed it now so people will stop questioning where I live. I live in Florida, USA! I meant to post 'British National Party sucks!' But it turned out only 'British National Party'. When I tried to change it it came saying error, but now it's fixed after months.

I've been saying for ages that we shoud not necessarily ban political parties, but that when we list a politicians name on a ballot or in advertising, they not be allowed to state which party they represent.

That way, people would actually have to look at where a politician stands on issues regardless of just blindly voting for whomever the Republican or Democratic candidate is each time.

If we introduced this at the same time we introduced a two term limit for all elected officials, people wouldn't get used to voting for the same person over and over because of knowing the party they represent, rather than the actual issues they represent.

I think we'd see some surprising results.

Actually, the Federal Reserve was not created by FDR. It was created by Woodrow Wilson, who was MUCH worse than FDR.

This is one of the frew things I agree with Glenn Beck on - Woodrow Wilson was probably the WORST President in US history and completely sold out to big banking interests.

Our Constitutional Republic was dismantled in the earlier 1900's with insanely written bills and with the advent of the Federal Reserve and all of its associated laws (crimes). Thank you, FDR.

The Federal Reserve Act came into existance during 1913 and was instituted by Woodrow Wilson. Even more important the ACT OF 1871 turned america's sovereign constitution to a corporate charter.

Ever since then, Congress and the POTUS has called this country a Democracy and all told, they've been trying to spread "democracy" all over the world.

So the democrats want a democracy and the republicans want a republic?

Obviously we need our Republic back.
But the feeble, complacent, so-called Americans have let it slide out from underneath them for generations with their ever-evolving chase for the "American Dream".

One of the big problems with government being accountable to everyone is that most of the money, if not all of it, comes from corporate donations and according to some right wingers its ok because its "freedom of speech".

It seems you can do EVERYTHING under "freedom of speech" and never be held accountable for ANYTHING! I am sorry but freedom of speech in the strict/literal sense means freedom TO OPEN YOUR MOUTH and freedom to type/write your message. NOTHING MORE!

This global disaster that is occurring in the gulf is being conducted by forces that caused it to begin with.

The Gulf of Mexico and North American Plains are weather machines for the entire planet; complete with hurricanes and tornadoes.

How many drills in the Gulf of Mexico or open pits in the Peace River Valley for a little over 5% of global oil are there to satisfy this ego for it?

Somethings wrong. And it isn't the weather.

That is what I think is the best way to restore our Constitutional Republic.
This seems apt.

As an outsider to all this I note that this was not mentioned (unless I missed it) does not = 21 or 294 but 1776 the Declaration Of Independance. (Or was that so blindingly obvious to you all that no one mentioned it?)

Very fitting indeed however!

I find the points in this thread meaning more to me than ever before. I encourage this thread to grow again and see more comments.

1776 isn’t just a year… any more.
