Save Democracy in America Now

Stop what you're doing right now and read this essay by America's Voice of Democracy Bill Moyers. It may appear a little long, but Moyer builts his case in a clear and unambiguious manner so no one reading can miss his meaning.

Go read it now and return. I'll wait.

Now take a few moments to do a google search for your local congress-critter then send them an email, leave a voice mail, or even better, drop an old fashion hand-written note in the mail to them. Write something on your own, or use the following as a template:

Dear Honorable _____,

I am writing to you in regards to a matter that gets to the very heart of what makes America a shining example of Democracy to the world. As President Lincoln stated so well in his Gettysburg Address, we are a government of the people, by the people, for the people. When that equation is compromised by corrupt politicians and big money our democracy is threatened.

A movement is growing across the United States to put the power back in the people's hands. This movement is for goverment funded political campaigns. As your constituent, I would like you to know that this is the time for you to get infront of this issue and sign your name to a bill that would put ____*your state* firmly in the camp of Democracy and out of the hands of lobbyists.

Please read this amazing essay by America's Voice of Democracy Bill Moyer's ( http://www.commondreams.org/views06/0224-20.htm ). You'll see the proof of how far we've fallen from the golden standard of voter elected government. The time is not too late to take action. So join your constituents and work toward public funding campaigns on all levels elected officials.

Thank you,

John Frost

It will take a miracle, the people in power right now see no incentive to change. But we must change in order to take back the power from the elite. So please, act today.
