    Not sure what your actually trying to ask. Who does the USA represent? Hopefully every citizen. Who owns the USA? Well, everyone, to some extent. Perhaps you might clarify what you want to know.

    Constitutionally, it is "by the people, for the people." But from what I am hearing and seeing, it seems more like "by the politicians, for the politicians." Republican or Democrat, though not all of them, the end goal is a higher salary, it would seem. And they do it through the guise of seeking welfare for the people. When a politician like Pelosi won't even give the other side a chance to speak their minds on an issue, let alone won't listen to US Citizens, whether they're right or wrong, you begin to wonder just how bipartisan they really are. The only bipartisanship I see is them and their money. I personally think that we need to reform. Not start a revolution, but reform our government and weed out the self serving politicians who do not listen to the rightful owners of the US. Our politicians are elected stewards, not kings or queens or princes or princesses. They are elected to represent our majority rule, not do whatever they damn well please!

    it is for the people by the people. unfortunately, like an uncaring landlord, we somehow forgot what we have. we just leave it to the hired help to make all decisions and left it alone. now we finally look at it and say "WHOAH, HOLD ON THERE" what the f@$& happened?
    it is time we took it back, actually that time went by us in our sleep. now we have so many restorations to make it is almost overwhelming. now we have to hire some really good people to clean it up. we can all start this year. find the conservative person running for congress and the senate. if none are running, well put your name in. no one knew scott brown 6 months ago. now he is a national figure and may be a hero.find someone in your area or jump in yourself if you can.

    The constitution of United States has clearly stated “it is by the people, for the people”. To day the citizens of US were the citizens of the Globe – the constitution has not defined who would be the people to be migrated to US to build up the Nation because it is for the people of the Globe. With the change of time, the government formed by the people has brought the laws of immigration because it is the peoples’ right as the Constitution has stated – it is by the people. By the lapse of more than two hundred years, the grown up citizens of the Nation should think of the democracy, should send right persons to the White House to look to the interest of the Nation, the economy and the dignity of the country.

    If I recall correctly the quote 'of the people, by the people, for the people' actually comes from Abraham Lincolns Gettysburg Address.

    The internet is a wonderful thing.
    A transcript of the US Constitution is available on-line at http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charte … ript.html.
