Democracies fail when they lose the trust and confidence of the people—and trust and confidence in the American democratic process is now at or near an all-time low—an estimated 17%.
A strong and healthy democratic process is one that has the trust and confidence of the vast majority of the people–think 75% or more.
Normally, we would rely on our elected representatives to address the issue. However, when it becomes evident our elected representatives are not going to address the issue, its up to We The People to step in, amend our constitution, and re-direct our government.
ThePeoplesConvention.org is about
- EMPOWERMENT – Providing the American people with the possibility and opportunity to fairly, honestly and respectfully upgrade their democratic process themselves.
This may seem daunting in and of itself. However, it is actually only one piece in the BIGGER PICTURE of restoring trust and confidence in the American democratic process.
Other pieces include
- RELIABLE INFORMATION – Providing the American people with an immediate, reliable and independently verified, source of complete, honest, accurate and intelligible information (CHAI) on matters of public policy
- RELIABLE ACCESS – Providing the American people with an immediate, nationwide, reliable and secure, online system of voting and voter registration
- EVERY VOTE COUNTS – Replacing the “winner-take-all” system of voting that effectively disenfranchises up to almost 50% of all voters with a voting system that makes sure “every vote counts” – or at least 95% of them
