This comment is to introduce http://coach-1640280.newsvine.com/ (A series of political comments)
Coach-1640280 takes sides.
“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” This translates politically to ”the needs of middle America outweigh the needs of the few”.
All comments will always and consistently side with middle America.
There are no democrats or republicans, liberals or conservatives, red or blue, radical or cauline. There is only middle America and two significant extreme fringes, the desperate poor and the wealthy elite.
Therefore, there are three political distinctions only, desperate poor, middle America, and wealthy elite.
Full disclosure: Middle America rules both extremes.
This series of political comments bashes no one, no party, no conservatives, and no liberals. Participation or debate in the political process is patriotism sufficiently demonstrated.
All comments are message and consensus centered. All comments are “no malice” comments. Messengers are never punished.
The practiced assumption is that every messenger has an honest message and all dishonest messages will eventually be found out and discarded.
All comments advocate the re-citizenization of America’s democratic institutions. Here’s why:
The 1776 constitution was first practiced by 90 congresspersons for 2.4 million Americans. This is one congressperson per 26,666 citizens. This was the founder’s best guess at proper citizen representation in democracy.
Today’s 2010 constitution is practiced by 535 congresspersons for 306 million Americans. This is one congressperson per 572,000 citizens.
Today’s 2010 constitution practices citizen representation at less than 5% the 1776 founder’s best guess representation estimate. Today’s American democracy is practiced at 5% the citizenization of the 1776 democracy. Herein lies the crutch of America’s difficulties.
To practice the constitution today at the citizenization level of 1776 requires a congress of 11,500 membership. To put 11,500 into perspective, walmart has 2.5 million employees, the pentigon has 26,000 employees, and the presidential executive has 1.5 million employees. Over a thousand existing American corporations have more than 11,500 employees. 11,500 is the size of a small university system.
When service in a restaurant suffers, more waiters are required. When fire breaks out everywhere, more fire fighters are required. When crime becomes rampant, more police are required. When democracy tanks, more congresspersons are required. Be proactive. Check out plan-b.
Citizen is coach to team democracy. Coach is responsible for success. It’s your call, coach.
