Is there a move underway to take the power out of politics and again place it in the hands of the people?
We believe such a movement is in the development stage and we likely will see major changes in the future.
Everyone seems to be in agreement the people of this nation are wanting change and may be in the early stage of demanding change.
The popularity of President Obama is one such indication. His popularity has been on a continual decline and all reports indicate it is the lack of bringing change as the voters had earlier indicated they wanted and he had promised.
Not only Democrats are paying attention, Republicans are also beginning to feel the pressure. Both are paying close attention to the upcoming elections.
The national debt continues to rise to unheard of numbers and yet, no one seems to have the answers or rather the courage to present the answers and stop their spending.
Social security is in dire trouble but all politicians admit they are scared to touch it in fear of their own political future.
They are afraid of their own welfare rather than the future of this country.
The state of California passed a new law that shows just how much the people are dissatisfied.
California voters have passed a law that gives the voters the power to take over their schools.
The new law provides if the majority of the parents are dissatisfied and sign a petition to do so, they may take over the school system and actually fire the administrators and teachers. We are not saying this is good or bad for school systems, we are simply saying people are beginning to demand attention be given to their requests.
We believe the future will show more such voter driven laws in our future and we believe the future will show politicians finally showing more attention to their constituents and less to their own political future.
The day of the old time politicians may finally be drawing to an end, not only on the national and state level, but also on the local level.
Many political figures, once elected, seem to feel they have been handed unlimited powers and may do as they please.
It is time they are given notice otherwise.
