I first thought of the IDEA of Upgrading our Democracy to FULL Version of a Direct Democracy during the Viet Nam War. Lyndon Johnson and then 'Tricky Dick' Nixon told us we had to go murder innocent people for democracy. Yet, both these tyrants ignored millions of people like me who were protesting that war. A very BLATANT contradictory in fact. They told us to go kill for democracy, yet, we had NONE here in America. So, I kept pressuring the politicians to give us NATIONAL INITIATIVES and REFERENDA so that We could have REAL DEMOCRACY in America and then we could have more people weigh on on the merits of war and the costs of same, among other things like National Health Insurance, Illegal Immigration, the Energy Crisis. All these problems of today, were problems of my youth because they never do anything in our DO-NOTHING CONGRESS. Of course, the marginalized me and ignored me all these years. EXCEPT, now there are actual rumblings and grumblings about VOTING ON THE INTERNET from people with real power and influence. I want to make sure WHEN we do it, we do it right. Therefore, I have devoted myself, almost full time to STANDING UP on this BLOGGING SOAP BOX until people in this country understand what is at stake; the FREEDOM of ourselves and our children and our children's children. NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS! I will go to my grave, knowing that my little voice has amounted to hundreds and then thousands and then millions of Americans demanding True Democracy so that when we do go to war somehwere, it might be for a real and just reason and not something THEY MADE UP! And that when we give our lives, it will be for real FREEDOM and not just the illusion of freedom they allow us now.
