BEING A CITIZEN REQUIRES ACTION
Holding our elected officials accountable necessitates asking for answers — no beating around the political bush — straight answers. For far too long it has been the monetarily influential —through expertly done lobbying — who have gotten legislative results. It’s our turn. Become an effective citizen lobbyist.
Take actions now to help take back control of the lawmaking process. We the People are the only legitimate source of authority in our republic. Our elected officials have forgotten whose consent is proper and necessary for this democratic republic to survive and prosper.
Being a citizen lobbyist is as easy as picking up the phone.
