This public servant concept could be applied in state and local governments. We could pick an articulate, apolitical person to speak on behalf of citizen legislators. We could empower people to govern ourselves rather than relying on politicians to rule us. We could set an example for self-governance that shows others across the globe how they can have more control over their own lives and destiny. Freedom requires more personal responsibility than political servitude. Citizen legislators would have a personal interest in preserving the individual liberties that collectively make us free people.
Politics has become so toxic that it is tearing families and our nation apart. It is time we started thinking about ways to move beyond the two party system that often leaves us with only the most extreme voices "representing" us. Our voice can be heard IF enough of us are willing to coordinate our efforts. We can be the voice of reason that is missing in politics today. Would you rather have more control of your life or trust politicians to take care of you?
