I've seen this country being ruined by “Fat Cat” Billionaires bribing politicians. It needs to stop. We can't have a Democracy when the only legislations that are passed are for the people who can purchase influence. This is not a Democracy. None of the problems in America can be fixed without first removing money from the equation of politics. There is no sense in debating an issue when the issue can be resolved by simply removing the bribe money. I become so frustrated when I hear politicians and the media talking endlessly on a subject, never getting to the root of the problem. They never talk about how to end the money influence because they themselves are receiving the money to keep the subject unresolved. My motive for starting this site is to call this problem out to people, hoping to get people to vote for Democracy and to do something about this injustice.
I have an American flag hanging outside my house to show my allegiance to our country. The realization that the American flag had been co-opted by the “hate-based fascists” concerned me. So I decided to also hang a flag saying “Democracy” along with the American flag. I could not find a Democracy flag. There is an abundance of hate speech paraphernalia, but nothing that supported democracy, free speech, and the real American way. Because I couldn't find what I was looking for I decided to make Pro-Democracy products myself. I developed this site and a store to promote items for the elimination of money in politics and to promote democracy with a progressive ideology. I believe to save America we must support democracy; nothing can be accomplished as long as politicians are taking bribes and making decisions that go against the good of the public for personal gain.
I developed this site and the affiliated STORE site to help support the cause of Democracy. The main purpose site is to provide a resource when talking to people about how money (bribes) is influencing everyone's life whether they realize it or not. The site is designed with a search to quickly find information when talking to people about any subject. That way you can inform people of the truth. I use it for that purpose. The store is to get the word out by creating clothing, bumper stickers, and messages people can use to call to attention the need for change. I personally wear the clothing and use the merchandise myself, it inspires conversations with the people I meet. I keep extra magnetic bumpers stickers in my car's trunk and whenever someone compliments me on the bumper sticker I'll give it to them for free, and put a new one on my car.
There is also a personal reason for me to see that the world is a better place. I have three beautiful and wonderful granddaughters. I don't want to leave them in a world where freedom and democracy are diminishing as the world is getting hotter due to climate change. People are more important than money.
I'm just one person trying to make a difference. It's called the Rule of One; where one person throws Star Fish back into the ocean knowing he can't save every Star Fish, but it makes a difference to the one he saved. I am not supported by anyone, endorsed by anyone, nor do I seek any funding. I'm not supported by a secret organization or a Political Action Committee. My purpose is to see that America's democracy survives. I feel we're on the precipice of losing our democracy if the common citizen doesn't stand up for Democracy.
I receive a small amount of money from the items I sell. I plan to use it to recoup some of my costs, any excess I plan on donating to worthwhile causes supporting free speech and democracy, as well as progressive candidates not accepting corporate money.
Maybe one person can make a difference. I don't know if I don't try.
