It's Not About Coffee and Tea: It's about Representation

We believe that the federal government--despite its many shortcomings--MUST get its act together, and start solving the enormous problems we face as a nation. It's not because we LOVE the federal government. It's just that it's the ONLY apparatus that we have at our disposal to counter the special interests and multi-national corporations that wield way too much power over a government that was intended to be of the people, by the people, and for the people.

We cannot solve the health care crisis at the state level. If the insurance corporations' were limited to state borders, then perhaps. But these are national and multi-national companies that have been gaming the system for decades. As consumers, we have been abused. We all know it. These corporate practices are literally making us sick and killing us. They have no shame. We cannot allow this to continue. No way. We cannot take the abuse anymore!

Think about it. In 1773, Americans revolted over being taxed too much for tea, a beverage. At this point in history, we are talking about our physical well-being, our BODIES, our lives, the lives of our families, friends, neighbors, co-workers and employees. What could be more important?

The American people must have a say in the way our nation moves forward on issues like health insurance reform. If our elected officials choose to represent the interests of mega-corporations instead of their constituents, we must hold them accountable. No one else will. It's our job, and it's up to us. We've got to stand up and demand representation. We must practice democracy. Let's STAND UP together.
