First, go here
Mr. Lessig is actually more than qualified to run for what we are still calling high office here in the good ol’ US of A, but his real goal is not all the accolades and power that come with the job.
Are you even more impressed now?
With all of the excitement in the current presidential derby I was caught up in the whole Donald Trump escapade. I wasn’t going to bother voting until Trump stepped in when I thought, “What fun!”
Now, some might take that particular attitude as the words of an irresponsible, flippant, nay nihilistic 2nd class citizen, but with a dimes worth of difference between the two parties, the banks and corporations holding all the cards and money, we’re not living in a free society, a democracy or even a republic anymore, Trump at least shook things up. C’mon, he admitted paying politicians to do his will, the media should have been all over that statement like white on rice, but the media is owned by guys just like Trump; worse even, who buy and sell politicians for lunch. They aren’t going to talk about the puppet-masters on the corporate owned MSM news channels! Dictatorships never do. Thing is, we know what Trump said about buying politicians is true, we’ve known for a long time it’s all true, yet when one of their own says it out loud we can actually taste it, we can experience the truth behind his words physically, like a punch in the face.
So Freedom: what exactly is that? Here’s someone who can soundly explain the idea of what robust citizenry is supposed to look like.
Oh, and don’t get me started on the Diebold Machines.
Yes, that HBO Documentary is dated, but it has only gotten worse and computers easier to hack by nefarious underlings, and Congress has done absolutely nothing to fix this.
Anyway… along comes Lawrence; I think some call him Larry; been following and watching this guy for over a decade now, anyway he comes up with this idea of how to take our government back.
Now I had already resigned myself in great part to secession. I figured after the next election the banks will own everything including us, it’s the next step in this taking-forever-unfolding-economic-collapse, but I rolled Lessig’s idea around in my nut and I thought, ‘Here is a secret magic door that could actually be a game changer!’ cause let’s face it, eventually we will have to come to our senses and do the right thing, right?
The Bottom Line: Give it a go, you got nothing to lose, seriously, unless you’re the 1% you have absolutely nothing left to lose and absolutely everything to gain. We have to get the money out of politics, you can’t change one thing until this happens first.
You’re in a boat in the middle of a lake, the boat is filling with water and a bucket won’t do, you got to fix the holes. As long as the money keeps pouring into our political system we’re going to sink and the hole is getting bigger and bigger with every election. There are too many people without a life jacket for the current system to continue.
Lessig is going to blow your mind, his campaign requires you to think differently about political campaigns. This is definitely not what you’re used to, but you have to be if you want to fix the boat and enjoy the lake.
Remember: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Lessigs approach will put an end to the insanity. The only question you have to ask is, are you tired of being insane?
Here are some more in-depth links I offer up for your exploration, do the research! I’ll add more as time goes on.
