How do you propose that we, the American people, get Washington to listen our wants and needs?
In order to get things actually done to our betterment.
The American people need to become politically active. Go to meetings, bring people to the meetings, discuss, work for and with the groups you want to support.
No-one should sit on the sidelines. The Republic is ours and we need to see ourselves as the bosses in this country. Politicians are mere employees. If they cannot explain their reasons to act effectively then we need to vote for people who will.
It won't take many years for incumbant politicians to see that their job is on the line every election if the people keep a close eye on them and vote them in or out according to their abillities and success.
We the people cannot let the politicians off the hook for one moment, by letting them do what they want without explanation. That is the fundamental promise of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. That Government serves the people and power is only given under the consentof those people.
