This year has shown us that things can quickly change. It is important that we see these changes clearly and think about how to make the best of our new reality. The covid relief package politicians came up with to help us is a perfect example of why we should not trust them to think for us. The bill contains thousands of pages of pork that resulted in a measly $600 payment costing us around $3,000 per person. America is bankrupt with over $20,000,000,000,000 in debt. Our public resources are collateral for that debt to foreign nations. Now is the time to start thinking about how we can use our public resources to secure financial and political freedom for future generations.
The internet gives us an opportunity to make doing the People’s Business, the people’s business. We can elect true public servants that do what we say. We can think for ourselves and practice self-governance. Local control is key. Independent thinkers could easily elect our own public servants to represent us at local levels. Our public servants would do what a 2/3 majority of us agree on. Failure to reach supermajority agreement on an issue would result in no action being taken. Our local representatives could influence the way state and national politicians do things.
Think about the potential revenue we could create by managing public resources in ways that benefit everyone and the environment. We could earn a steady paycheck for paying attention to doing the people’s business. Look at our public roadways with the potential for collecting wind and solar energy from them. We could benefit from this new energy industry rather than subsidizing global corporations to do it for us. We could blend the best of free-market and common-good principals to promote freedom and prosperity for everyone.
