Democracy Awake: The Time is NOW

Democracy Awake: The Time is NOW

by Ted Lund

We see and hear it all the time.

“The system is broken.” “Elected officials aren’t listening to us.” “I have no idea what that candidate even stands for.” “Why bother to vote? They just do what they want anyway.” “The Government is defying We The People.”

11070922_1117519341607873_8777186441861472698_n-300x236For the most part, it’s true. The system is broken. “They” aren’t listening to “We”. Special interests have become so ingrained on both sides of the political aisle that it seems almost impossible to effect any kind of change.

Until now.

Decorated-veteran Daniel Davis (Lt. Col. US Army-Ret.) and his dedicated team of patriots at DemocracyAwake.org want to empower the electorate and help us take our country back.

“For the first time ever in American history, the voter will have access to a concentrated power, The Power Hub, to select the candidate that most represents their views,” said Davis.

Davis and his team are nearing completion of The Power Hub, but still need our help.

“Upon completion of the crowdfunding campaign, our designers and engineers will complete the work on The Power Hub, which will reside at www.DemocracyAwake.org,” says Davis. “But even at these early stages, we are pleased to discuss what this powerful device will do for for the American voter.”

Davis says that although there are a number of excellent voter-oriented organizations and services available via social media, few Americans know what’s available or where to find them.

“Democracy Awake assembles the best of the most useful tools, placing them into one, easy-to-use location,” says Davis. “We’re going to put that power in your hands.”

The Power Hub allows voters to evaluate each candidate on a level playing field, issue-for-issue, promise-for-promise.

“You can get as much or as little information as you want, including a link to each candidate’s website for more information,” says Davis. “We also provide the option to examine in-depth candidate history.”

Key components of this level of The Power Hub are the ability to research and examine the voting records of previous office-holders, as well as detailing who backs them financially, and if they are beholden to any special interest groups. In the major races, The Power Hub will also point you to quality ‘fact-checker’ services, to assist in assessing the veracity of public statements and campaign materials.

“Our revolutionary system rides on the power of a new voter app that presents candidate information in a consistent, fair, and impartial venue,” says Davis. “Each candidate will have the ability to present a given amount of key information for voters to assess their qualifications and vision.”

But there’s one key component: The Power Hub will not reward a wealthy candidate by allowing him or her to have an extravagant presence.

“In our forum, everyone will be presented in the same format. This allows the candidate’s qualifications and vision for the future to do the talking, not the strength of their pocketbook.”

No longer will wealthy candidates and their special interest backers be able to guide the discussion based on the level of saturation in TV ads they can afford.

There’s another added benefit as well: neutralizing the impact of negative advertising.

“Well over half the ads in the recent past – as we all know too well – are negative, attack ads,” says Davis. “On Election Day, voters are essentially asked to choose the candidate they hate the least.  The ads rarely give an indication of the candidate’s vision for their district and country, or stance on critical issues.  The Power Hub will drive your ability to make an informed choice.”
