Tytler's Cycle of Nations May be Nearing Completion!
"A Democracy can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship."
Are we not here? Read more about Tytler's theory of "Cycle of Nations" that says our country is on a direct path for collapse if we fail to change our course. We have already know that many if not most of our elected officials have promised and often have delivered benefits in the form of welfare and special privileges for corporations. But, WE THE PEOPLE can use this same leverage to REVERSE the trend of decline that have set our country on a course for economic and societal decline or even demise.
What is it we can do? WE THE PEOPLE, the bottom 90-99% of citizens that is being massively leveraged by Billionaires and the top 1% of income earners, can vote new leaders into office to pass laws that will reverse this unbelievable trend of wealth distribution that has taken place over the past 35+ years.
Preamble to the United States Constitution
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
CitizensReUnited Identifies America's BIG Problem
A government that enables corruption is one that is not serving the will of the people. A democracy is no longer such when citizens do not have A TRUE CHOICE in the election process for a lack of a TRUE VOICE. BIG MONEY controls RED and BLUE. One cannot get support from either party to run for office unless one has BIG MONEY or a BIG RESUME. Unfortunately our commerce system is corrupted by BIG BUSINESS, MEDIA and GOVERNMENT. All three work in conjunction to maintain the will of the STATUS QUO over the will of the those that buy their products and services, read their publications and elect them into office. This leaves us with no TRUE or ACTUAL CHECK and BALANCE on CORRUPTION and INJUSTICE, which is exactly what our government is supposed to protect us from in the first place. How can we possibly have a REAL and VIABLE chance to gain LIBERTY and JUSTICE for all when the mass majority of citizens will is ignored by those in power? Our government was created to protect the rights of citizens and our elected leaders are supposed to serve those that elected them first and not submit to creating laws that give the rich and powerful special rights and privileges. See the Declaration of Independence for a glimpse of where we are REVERSING back to.
To reform a more perfect union that ensures freedom, justice and liberty for all citizens. To connect American citizens under a common cause to enact solutions that will generate liberty and justice for ALL Americans, not just the famous, rich and powerful. To embrace the leadership and values provided by our founding fathers and leaders that trusted in and gave credit to God for all the blessings we now have. To uphold the constitution of the United States and to amend it so as to correct the corruption that has beset our nation and robbed most Americans of their liberty. To share the truth and love of God and pledge as a nation to repent of our ways and embrace the God of the founders of our nation. To preserve the freedom given unto all Americans as instituted in our Constitution to practice our belief in God as we see him in our homes, places of business, in the public and houses of worship.

More About CitizensReUnited
CitizensReUnited was established to reform our country back to the state in which it once existed. An America that is more secure, more just, more generous and more loving towards our neighbors, near and far.
With the Bible as our guide and firm foundation for obtaining wisdom, truth, justice, fairness and love, we shall move to seek to do God's will to reestablish a more fair and just society whereas oppression, prejudice and corruption have less of an impact. To uproot corruption be it in government or business.
To honor our founding fathers and great leaders of our country, by respecting and acknowledging as they did, that the God of the Bible is the 'Creator' as mentioned in our Constitution, halls of justice and legislation. To truly be in word and deed "One Nation UNDER God, indivisible with liberty and justice for ALL." To once again truly believe and live, as it says on our coins, "In God We Trust." To maintain and uphold the Constitution and it's amendments so as to preserve the rights and liberties that enable freedom and justice to rule and reign. To enable people the freedom to live their lives as they see fit, without taking away the rights of others to do the same, while still not ignoring the words of God as spoken in the Bible.
For without a sound basis of right from wrong, we are left with chaos and corruption. Moral relativism has no firm foundation, but in fact opens the door for injustice. Our founding fathers knew that what they penned would not stand without leaders of honest conviction and a fear of God in their hearts. But without WE THE PEOPLE banding together once again to form a more perfect union, our nation shall surely soon perish from the nation we once knew, and more and more now seems very unfamiliar and unfriendly to the causes of love, life, liberty and justice. If we do not ALL, rich and poor alike repent of our ways, God will soon judge our nation. But "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)."
Our leaders need to open their heads and hearts to new ways of governance, for the current and modern ways have enabled corruption to take hold. Without THE PEOPLE having a TRUE VOICE in the conversation, FREEDOM is disabled, not enabled by the INNOVATIONS that could be if only we were heard. Without fresh innovation, like oxygen rich blood in our body, a company, a country, a culture will become corrupted, depleted of energy, and soon collapse. The top barriers to innovation are not the lack of solutions, but rather the main barriers are pride, prejudice, envy, fear and greed. When any of us allow such in our heads and hearts, we block our best innovation from ever becoming reality. Indeed we need a SOLUTION-CENTRIC focus and PUBLIC FORUM, rather than a PARTY or POWER-CENTRIC focus which has left us in a place where the INNOVATIONS WE NEED to solve our biggest problems is not being heard or adhered to only because they have not originated from those with GREAT TITLE, POWER, REACH or INFLUENCE. This prejudice against INNOVATION is the BIGGEST BARRIER to break down because of the way we ALL pay TOO MUCH ATTENTION TO THOSE WITH WEALTH AND POWER. We act and believe THEY HOLD AN EXCLUSIVE ON WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE, when if fact HISTORY HAS PROVEN THE OPPOSITE TO BE TRUE. It is hard to imagine what our country would look like today if or 5, 10 or 15 years from now if such constraints against INNOVATION, LIBERTY and FREEDOM were removed, ideally REVERSED or in the very least restrained.
Corruption has taken over our land and we ALL have played our part, mostly by our apathy, lust for luxury for self and the blatant disregard for our fellow citizens and neighbors, near and far. With income disparity at all time highs, we have reached a point whereas the hope for obtaining the 'American Dream' is just that, a dream for all but 1 in 6 or 7 Americans. God has blessed our great nation abundantly, but if our CASH RICH CORPORATIONS and SUPER RICH continue to extract wealth as they have in an abusive and oppressive manner, it will surely kill our economy and country. Such oppression has gone too far! Our current governors need to turn course to embrace this reality, to chart a new course towards smaller government, a more fair, simple and eventually flat tax rate, a balanced budget, a plan to pay off our national debt so future generations do not have to pay the price. CORPORATIONS and SUPER RICH are mostly responsible for getting us into this mess and lead us out of the mud they must, lest WE THE PEOPLE will.
At this time in our country 43% of all wealth is controlled by the top 1% of income earners and only 7% of wealth is controlled by the bottom 80% of Americans. But these statistics speak only to personal wealth and not corporate wealth or government wealth or ability to control or generate money. Perhaps as little as 10,000 people hold up to 99% of the power and wealth that control most decisions made in business, the media and our government today. The decisions made by these 10,000 or so have direct and often compromising effects on the whole of society and it's ability to achieve the American Dream or have true liberty and opportunity to innovate and achieve at any scale. Such a concentration of power and the abuse thereof without check and balance or accountability is the cause of our ills.
We the People, no longer ignorant or apathetic, hold you accountable to correct our course and re-balance the inequity that you have taken to your advantage. It's time to give back to the people that worked so hard by sharing your wealth with them and those is poverty and by investing it back into our country to pay for innovation and fiscal renovation in education, healthcare and small businesses.
Let the wise among you see the turn of the tide. Now is the time to embrace generosity and caring in both corporate and personal affairs, without requiring the government enact laws that you must comply by to maintain a fair, competitive economy, middle class and hope for any American, that is willing to work hard, passionately and persistently, to achieve the dreams set forth in their heart. In so doing, without having need to form laws to regulate the corruption that has so devastated our nation, you will surely reap an abundant reward far more than you could ever imagine possible to meet and beat expectations from shareholders, your employees, your fellow citizens, your community and country.
