The USA was formed as representative democracy. A ”government of the people, by the people, for the people”.
America has ceased to be a representative democracy. As shown by a Princeton study which concludes that ”economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence”.
That our government no longer cares what its people think is evident to almost anyone who is not in the top 1%. It has ceased to be our government and is now bought and paid for be the top 1% of the wealthy. The deck is stacked and systems in place to protect the establishment.
Revolution99 is here to help take back our democracy and restore a progressive nation that is for the people. We will do whatever is necessary to wrestle control back from the establishment and make government responsive to its citizens.
We will fight to reform our government by working to:
- End rigged elections
- Eliminate money in politics
- Defend and expand voting rights
- Establish publicly funded campaigns
- Break up banks and mega corporations that control our politics
- Promote a truly independent media that is not influenced by corporate control
- Support progressive issues that are important to the 99%
In a system that heavily favors the 1% we intend to fight a guerrilla media war to take back our government.
The time for revolution is now!
