Condition your vote

If the guns in the hands of people turned out to be the best resource to defend democracy in the 18th century, in the 21st century the best weapon turns out to be the electoral vote. But not to elect the supposed best candidate with manichean prejudices, but to condition the political parties to effectively promote the updating of laws that the people demand (the optimal proposal is now the Second Amendment) before the day of the election, to vote for their candidates.

Observing that what the Founders sought to avoid with the Second Amendment, is precisely what corporate moguls have achieved with it: a dictatorship of capital with a huge military power at its service.

A powerful update to the Second Amendment, preserving the spirit of the Founders, would have to release the democracy of capital, because simply the capital has bought to democracy.

Therefore, it is necessary to convert the Second Amendment in a preventive transparency law, to ending the discretionary management of public resources through consensus of the citizen communities involved before making any project and exert any budget.

And only like this the citizenry will be able to confront the challenge of the climatic change, implementing a citizen or community economy by means of cooperatives of companies that in coexistence with the capitalism overcome the economic crises of United States and around the world.

It is now when the American people must ratify its global political leadership to move the world towards a better future.

You'll need to be more persuasive than that and maybe a little more conclusive.

I didn't notice the rest of the World requesting USA Global Leadership and I don't think we run the USA well enough to deserve such leadership. You allude to broad statements that require specific narrow answers and do not follow through.

I didn't notice that anyone requesting me suggest this, nor I have more deserve than anyone else to do so. Now we live in an electoral process in the United States and the American people have the opportunity to assume such leadership, just as other Nations it will taking in each electoral process.

These specific narrow answers need first to be creative and constructive actions to then be able to be more persuasive, conclusive and coherent.

What I suggest is that already it’s time and urgent (primarily by climate and environmental threat) to take the next step in the advancement of democracy, through a rationalization of public expenditure by replacing its discretionary management of the rulers by citizen consensus and participation, potentialzing the community or voluntary work.
