there be no mistake, the fight relating to the integrity of OUR voting system is the initial battle in waking up Americans
to their basic rights ... to true American values ... to taking back America from special interests ... demanding that the
elected serve the interests of the electors ... We the People!
This is not a battle about machines but of and for Democracy itself ... taking
corporations, controlling moneyed interests out of politics and having the voices of the people fully heard ...
we must stand for the principle of striving to prove every vote truly counts and is counted, fully and accurately ... even
if it be a single voice/vote speaking out differently from all the rest. We must work to initiate other changes that hold
OUR representatives and system of government (including civil servants) responsible for serving the interests of citizens;
renewing and building on core American principles, especially freedom, opportunity, and a truly representative government.
We must re-ignite the spirit of innovation, courage, and active involvement of every citizen
... a commitment to building something greater, together. Of course, this in turn requires that each American take responsibility
to become informed and involved, including casting his/her vote with knowledge, care, and with the view of fulfilling
a sacred responsibility; to participate in as well as oversee our governmental process; to contribute, each in his or her
unique way, to continually improving America, fulfilling the promise of what America can be, for each of us and all of us.
REQUIRES RESPONSIBILITY AND PARTICIPATION ON CITIZENS' PART
Recipe for Responsibility (Empowerment)
1 Need … Important to do … must be done
2 I/We must do it
… we are responsible to act, participate in some way
3 I/We can do it
… or learn how!
We must change “I/WE CAN’T”... (BECAUSE…)
to… “WE MUST, CAN, AND WILL!”
