CURRENT ISSUES

Is America Fair? Are you using Democracy? Are we losing Democracy?

These are questions being asked by citizens across the country. Many Americans feel the government has forsaken them and works only for the wealthy. This website is devoted to identifying and exploring the issues and informing citizens of ways they can work together to rescue and strengthen our Democracy.

Watch these videos and decide for yourself if as great as America is overall, do we as citizens need to work to increase fairness?
