The Peoples Platform
The principles of the Peoples Platform are based on the Constitution – “WE THE PEOPLE”. The government is for and by the People. We must return our government to the people. It’s not about party or politics, its about the People. The People elect representatives – not politicians. The Google definition clearly makes a distinction between the two:
Representative: a person chosen or appointed to act or speak for another or others, in particular.
Politician: a person who acts in a manipulative and devious way, typically to gain advancement within an organization.
Freedom is not about the rights of one but the rights of the collective – the “People”. The constitution of the United States of America was carefully crafted to create a representative government. As time goes by, its up to the People to understand and defend their rights.
Understanding our rights is more difficult than defending them. We have the right to a government that represents our freedom as a country, not as an individual. Think about it – without a country where does freedom come from?
It takes a country to defend our freedom. If each of us had to defend our rights one on one, 50% of us would loose. That’s why it takes a country – lots of people willing to do what it takes to keep America free. To understand freedom we need to take a serious look at what freedom means to each of us. Free to speak, free to worship, free to work, free to not work – at a personal level, what makes you free?
Let your thoughts dwell on what makes you free, then stop and think about how a government organization can support your vision of freedom. It probably has nothing to do the headlines in our media. Freedom comes from the heart. It’s an emotion, something we internalize because of our surroundings. Put your thoughts into bullet points, you don’t have to determine their importance, but as we progress developing an understanding of our freedom we will gain a better understanding of when, where and how to define our freedom.
Defending our freedom can only begin when we understand what we are fighting for. We can’t elect representatives unless we understand our own personal values – the emotions that become our feeling of being free. Then we will start the realization of how to defend our values.
We have to start somewhere. Politicians (not representatives) use change as an adjective – a word to make something sound good as compared to using change as a verb – meaning it defines an action. Change doesn’t have to take forever, it can and should happen quickly. If we don’t like what’s going on in the political arena, lets change it – now!
This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!
I am really enjoying reading your well written articles. It looks like you spend a lot of effort and time on your blog. I have bookmarked it and I am looking forward to reading new articles. Keep up the good work!
t appears that you have placed a lot of effort into your article and I require more of these on the net these days. I sincerely got a kick out of your post. I don’t really have much to say in response, I only wanted to comment to reply wonderful work.
I’ve been involved in taxes for lengthier then I care to admit, both on the individualized side (all my employed life-time!!) and from a legal viewpoint since satisfying the bar and following up on tax law. I’ve provided a lot of advice and righted a lot of wrongs, and I must say that what you’ve posted makes utter sense. Please uphold the good work – the more people know the better they’ll be equipped to cope with the tax man, and that’s what it’s all about.

Once again an excellent written post from you. Keep it up!
Hmm… I read blogs on a similar topic, but i never visited your blog. I added it to favorites and i’ll be your constant reader.
Sounds like a good outline, especially in regards to Local control. To enact such ideas, you need to replace the people in Washington. Please visit WilliamLee2014.org.
Amen to the above. We must raise future leaders who Put God, Country and Family First. Defend our constitution and Bill of Rights and support our troops who make all our freedoms possible.
On this, the 4th of July 2009, we re-declare our independence. We will no longer live in slavery to any government. We do not accept “change” describing a vision but demand change define rules, regulations, laws and taxes that are erased from our lives. We insist on a simple government that does not need to be “transparent”. We require a life without government intervention and excessive taxation. The Peoples Platform is the beginning of the end of America’s two party political system. The People will no longer submit to the platforms of either the Democrats or Republicans. We will mandate… Read more »
