IS AMERICA FAILING ITS DEMOCRACY?

Is the interest of the American people authentically and ethically represented by our Government? The general public is dissatisfied with politics, yet feels helpless to effect change. Yes, we have allowed our democracy to drift unnoticed into dysfunctional political theater. Preservation of the party line is more important than the well-being of the American people.
In Reclaim American Democracy, I explore critical breakdowns in American politics and encourage the American people to reclaim their democratic rights. We, the people, are fully responsible for change and cannot afford to sit back.

to reclaim their democratic rights.“

WHY CAN’T AMERICA ELIMINATE POVERTY?

My eye-opening theory on poverty traps reveals the hidden betrayal of the American people. The working poor are trapped in a vicious cycle created by politics and policy and held in place by institutional mechanisms. If we do not put an end to these poverty traps quickly, we will create an even greater gap between the rich and poor.

The failure of American social legislation to protect its people is now impacting even the middle class. Inadequate health care coverage drives people into bankruptcy and poverty. The lack of mandatory savings for retirement leaves many citizens struggling in old age.

The minimum wage was created to ensure basic income for the lowest wage earners. Today, employers and politicians lobby and manipulate the minimum wage to keep labor costs low. Without a sufficient minimum wage, foodstamps, Medicaid, and other social programs must fill the gap.

American policy has been ineffective at eliminating poverty.Half of the Federal budget now supports the poor and the elderly all over the country.

HERE’S THE TRAP

Did you know that in the end you are indirectly supporting the bottom line and executive pay of companies who intentionally underpay their employees? Hardworking American people subsidize an insufficient minimum wage with their taxes through government programs. You, the taxpayer, are currently underwriting 200 welfare programs that help prevent people from failing into hunger,homelessness, and poverty.

THE DISTORTION OF DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES

The American political system allows the economic elite and big corporations to influence legislation in the form of lobbying. Lobbyists influence lawmakers to adjust or manipulate economic principles in their favor. Economic conditions increasingly favor the rich.

As American democratic principles are distorted, the priorities of the American people are neglected.

THE VOTING PARADOX

Too many voters are blinded by the American Dream. Struggling citizens vote against their real needs and interests and, in the end, sabotage their own well-being and democratic rights.
