    IS DEMOCRACY POSSIBLE? WITH GREG WASSON

    in Politics

    Contary to popular opinion, the US Constitution not only failed to produce a democracy but did not even create a representative democracy. In addition to the exclusion of women, the propertyless, slaves and indentured servants from the right to vote, the original Constitution had built-in protections against democracy, which was just as now was considered then by some to be "tryanny of the majority."

    The failure to educate our children about the genuine history of the US and the systematic brainwashing to convince them we live in a democracy has obscured the fact that we could have a much more representative government if we would give up worship of the Founders and abandon the ridiculous notion of "original intent" that suggests the constitution was written on stone tablets and handed down by God.

    In this episode, Greg Wasson of Committee for Petition Rights in Oregon discusses how we can create a more representative government and the pros and cons of various ideas.


    This show will be rebroadcast on April 11 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio Network.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of corporate control of the US government.

    Democracy for All Video Contest: Lunch with Louden, 8/6/15

    in Politics

    Coffee Party USA is proud to be a partner organization on the $64,000 Democracy For All Video Challenge – a contest seeking to tap into the creative potential of Americans of all political stripes with short, powerful videos in support of the Democracy For All Amendment to get big money out of politics.


    The goal is two-fold: to encourage activists and filmmakers, both brand-new and experienced, to create videos highlighting the need for money in politics reform and to use those videos to inspire action in support of the Democracy For All Amendment.


    The Democracy for All amendment restores the ability of Congress and state legislatures to regulate the raising and spending of money in elections. It overturns misguided Supreme Court decisions that threaten the integrity of our democracy.  This has allowed wealthy and powerful corporations and individuals to purchase outsized influence in our political process.


    LWL guest Rio Tazewell will tell us about the Democracy for All Amendment and $65K Democracy for All Video Contest. You may have seen Rio in his video promotion for the contest!


    You will find even more information on this subject on the Lunch with Louden Facebook page.

    Is America a democracy in the truest sense of the word???

    in Politics

    Another Monday...snow on the ground...politics in the air.  America has been called "the greatest example of democracy in the world." One man, one vote!!!  Canadians fashion their government after the people of Great Britain without the monarchy. After all, Canada was once part of Great Britain. Israel, like Canada and Great Britain is a Parliamentarian form of government. When the party in power loses its popularity, the opposing party may call for a "vote of confidence." The result are new elections. However, in the United States, we elect a leader, the President, for a four year term. He or she may serve by the will of the people for  two terms, eight years, at which time new candidates may run for the elected office. American government is an example of the Roman form of democracy or a Republic. Let's get the discussion moving. Call us at 646-595-3275.

    Democracy VERSUS Justice? -Especially for YOU!

    in Social Networking

    Host Doretha Mary from the 13th colony and Host Tehuti of Your Bookstore for Justice, interviews Mr. Neely Fuller Jr., author of The United Independent Compensatory Code System Concept. Mr. Fuller provides information for the individual about what a person can do and say in day to day life to produce justice. Justice meaning no one mistreated and the person needing help the most receives the most constructive help in all areas of people activity in society including economics, education, entertainment,labor, law, politics, religion, sex and war.


    The matter sometimes referred to as the 'Race' problem is the original, basic initial unfinished business among people of the known universe. To eliminate any major problem among people we must first eliminate the problem of Functional Racism which is White Supremacy. Not all white people. The White men, women and children who practice and promote mistreating Black and all non-white people because of greed and this thing called 'Race'-a political strategy.
