No matter what your country or nationality, everything mentioned in this web site pertains equally to the political situation in your country. You are totally powerless and completely irrelevant to the political process. Changing this situation will be the greatest political challenge facing us in the 21st century.
Democracy and The Personal Representative: A New Democracy For The 21st Century. A Proposal To Reform Democracy and Make Democratic Institutions Relevant To The People. It Will Matter What You Want and It Will Matter What You Think Because You’ll Have The Power To Make It Matter.
No Act of the Congress of the United States or any State Legislature is law until it has stood before the Will of The American People – which will is represented solely by The Personal Representative. This means the Will of 100% of The People. If only one person of The American People – one Personal Representative – can make the statement that a bill did not stand before his/her will or that he/she was not allowed to freely express their will on that bill then the bill is not law.
These are the two requirements for a bill – an Act of Congress or a State Legislature – to become law. The bill must stand before the Will of The People – 100% of The People and each person of The People must be able to freely express their political will on that bill. At present no bill passed by the Congress or any State Legislature is law either legally or constitutionally since none of these bills has ever stood before the Will of The People and not one person of The People has ever been able to express their will on any bill.
The Elected Representatives either federally or from any State do not represent the Will of The People of the United States.
The theory of Democracy is that when a bill is passed by the Congress, that bill has stood before the Will of the People as expressed by their elected representatives, that the People of America have spoken through these representatives and therefore the bill is law. This is not true. It is the greatest lie that’s ever been told.
In the 235 years since 1773 and through close to 100 Congresses and hundreds of State legislatures not one of these Congresses, or legislatures, have ever represented the Will of The People of or the Will of The People of their States. During the entire history of this country, well over 100,000 people have been elected to these institutions, and not one of them has ever represented the will of their constituency either Federally or in any State or collectively the will of the country. During all these years hundreds of millions of people have lived, died, or are presently living in the United States and not one has ever been allowed to express their will politically on any bill passed by any Congress or legislature. And throughout this entire period not one elected representative has ever represented the will of any one of his/her constituents. .
These bills are just worthless pieces of paper.
When you reach the age of 18 you become your own person. You represent yourself. You represent your own will. Nobody else can represent your will since nobody else can be you. At no time in our long history has any bill ever stood before the Will of the People and at no time has any one person of the People ever been allowed to freely express his/her will on any bill. This means that since 1773 not one bill – not one Act of Congress or any State Legislature – is law. There is no legal or constitutional foundation for the functioning of the state.
The Personal Representative will provide the legal and constitutional framework through which all bills will become law. The Personal Representative will put “The People” back in “Of The People, By The People And For The People.”
Although the Elected Representatives will still be an integral and important part of the political process – Now all people will be an important and integral part of the democratic process. Leadership will no longer be totally dependent on and the quality of their candidates. It can come from anywhere in the country. A group of grade 10 students could reach out with a good idea, grab the imagination of The People and change the history of this country.
You will no longer be a political corpse to be dragged out of the morgue at election time, unthawed just long enough to vote and then quick frozen and immediately returned to the morgue with absolutely no say in any decisions affecting the political and economic future of this country. It will matter what you want and it will matter what you think because you’ll have the power to make it matter.
You have the constitutional right to represent yourself. Indeed without the constitutional functioning of this right no bill – no Act of Congress and no Act of any State Legislature is law.
The establishment of the Personal Representative is absolutely essential to the legal and democratic constitutional functioning of the country. It’s establishment will require all people especially young people to stand up and yell at the President and all professional politicians:
“YOU DON’T REPRESENT ME. I REPRESENT MYSELF.”
As will be explained further in this write-up, the establishment of the Personal Representative will also entail the constitutional right for every person of The People, from the richest to the poorest, from those who live in mansions to those who live in the streets, to public access to a computer and the internet to be followed by the constitutional right to personal access to a computer and the internet for every citizen of this country. It will be the cornerstone for a New Democracy.
A Personal Representative is any person who is over the age of eighteen and has the right to vote. Upon their 18th. Birthday, these Personal Representatives will take their rightful seats in the Congress of Personal Representatives nationally and Legislatures in the states where they reside. Having reached manhood or womanhood, they will take their rightful place in society for the consideration and approval of all national and state issues of the day. The State Legislatures, President, Governors, members of the government party, members of the official opposition either in whole or in part do not represent the People of the United States. The People of America represent themselves. They are each their own Personal Representatives.
Direct Democracy is the inherent right of all citizens to represent themselves. Without the right of Direct Democracy – the right of the people to politically represent themselves then no bill passed by any Congress or legislature is law. As will be explained further in this write up – “Direct Democracy and the Democratic Right of Non-Participation In The Political Process” – direct democracy includes the democratic right of any citizen not to be forced into participating in the political process provided that choice is made of their own free will. The Personal Representative allows all citizens to participate if they want to in the political process without fear that their non-participation will result in a minority (no matter how well intentioned) seizing control of the political process. This is direct democracy – of the people, by the people, for the people.
