Regardless of the outcome of this election, we must continue the fight post election!

We have discovered that our Representative Democracy has been stolen by big Donors who now control government through the politicians that they bought. The monied interests have played the long game on us because they never stop whittling away at our rights. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce started spending big money in state and local elections to win from the bottom up. Those elections were cheap to buy and eventually resulted in control of many of the state's by Republicans.

We on the other hand have been going to sleep and wake up only for Presidential elections, and even then seem half asleep as to what was going on behind the scenes. This has to stop! We have to remain committed to continuing the fight, forcing coverage of events by the networks and staying very active on social media. We need to keep pointing out the politicians who sell us out in exchange for more money. We need to support media outlets who do fairly cover the situation and let them know they can count on us to keep them afloat since they will not get the big ad dollars that corrupt the system and cause the media to go right

We need a long game too if we ever want to end the corporate control!

1. We the people must build some sort of apparatus

that can compete with our corporate overlords and field candidates that want to serve the public interest.
