Have you noticed that your elected representatives in government say the things you want to hear while they are campaigning, but once they get elected, they forget about your issues and seem to do whatever they want? That's because they only need you once every campaign cycle, at voting time but they need their corporate backers, who pay most of the freight for their campaign ads on national and local TV 365 days a year. The logic your elected uses is, “Why worry about and please one voter at a time which would be getting the votes retail when I can please a corporate lobbyist who will get his corp. to buy campaign advertising for me and get lots of votes wholesale?” Using that logic, we have no say because bucks mean more than ballots.
How can our votes compete with corporate cash and bogus campaign ads from equally bogus public service “organizations” that are fronts for and financed by self-serving corporations? How can we get our elected public servants to realize that they are public servants, not corporate servants? How can we get our ballots to shout louder than corporate bucks? In other words, how do we get the bastards to listen to us? The answer is that as voters, we follow the same model as organized labor.
Workers formed unions to create a level playing field when negotiating working conditions and wages. If an individual employee, doing the same job as many other employees felt that he or she did a great job and deserved a raise wasn't represented by a union, he or she had to go to the boss, beg for a raise and pray. The boss, representing the raw power of the entire corporate organization had the employee at a severe disadvantage. Unions spoke for large blocks of employees and negotiated from a position of strength.
Similarly, we have to create what is, in essence a union of voters. Not a labor union, but a giant national voting bloc organization that represents the bottom 98% of Americans who, while in the majority, have lost control of our country due to the unethical methods used by many of the top 2% to gain total control of our electeds. An organization that doesn't represent corporations and the rich, but does represent the struggling and hard-working American Voting Families also known as the rest of us. An organization that represents America's workers, small business owners who are being squeezed out of business by the corporate big box stores, the retired and the poor who, despite the best efforts of the rich, still have a vote. Imagine the power of your vote when it is combined with the rest of the bottom 98%. If the present two parties do not represent us, we can spawn and support a new party and its candidates. No more corporate divide and conquer!
