Not even close! Not for over fifty years, we haven't been, but instead have allowed our elected professional politicians pretty much free rein with our government, our money and our freedoms, which they have slowly been eroding since the 30's.
What can we do? Vote them all out, every single one, at both the state and the federal level, and replace them with people whose goal is to serve rather than to solidify their oppression. We need people who don't feel they are entitled to rule, who still remember what it's like to work for a living, and who have the common sense to run this country for the betterment of all, rather than the privilege of the few.
Join the revolution!
