Democracy is what we do, not just our form of government.
"Labor is prior to and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration."
President Abraham Lincoln in his first State of the Union address, December, 1861.
Beliefs and Values
Be a citizen, not a consumer. Take part in our democracy for your own benefit, but also in doing justice for the least of our brothern (and siste-ern, too).
Join a group like Organizing for Action to do your part for your community, state, and nation.
Get money out of politics. How? By helping pass a Constitional Amendment to read: Corporations are not natural persons; money is not speech. Large majorities of Americans agree, but the supreme court (in its Citizens United decision) ruled otherwise. We can overturn the power of big money through our actions. The politicians won't do it; only we, the people can. Many amendments started as citizen movements in response to bad Supreme Court decisions. www.Movetoamend.org will help you get involved to make a difference.
