Join DemocracyAwake.org in its Declaration

 

Daniel L. Davis is an American patriot.

After serving more than 30 years in the U.S. Army, Davis retired as a Lieutenant Colonel who was decorated for his years of service, twice being awarded the Bronze Star.  Inspired by the Government Shutdown of 2013, Davis — with a group of like-minded lovers of Democracy — founded DemocracyAwake.org with the goal of helping win back the political system  for the people of the United States. In order to wrest control from special interests and entrenched politicos, Davis invites  like-minded citizens to join him in signing his 2015 Declaration. To learn more, sign The Declaration or get involved, visit www.DemocracyAwake.org.

 

We the People: A 2015 Declaration

 

 

11070922_1117519341607873_8777186441861472698_nIn 1787 our original governing generation declared American independence.  In the preamble to this declaration, they vowed: “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”  Today’s American citizens are grateful to our forefathers for the Union and the blessings of liberty they established.  But the current governing generation has lost faith with the ideals and values we once held sacred.  As a result, we the people of 2015, do hereby make a declaration of our own:

 

“We the people of the United States, in order to restore an effective union, reestablish justice, rebuild domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare of all citizens, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do hereby declare that the politics of dysfunction, which have had a suffocating effect on our nation for too many years, will no longer be tolerated. 

 

“We the people are now awake.  We will begin anew to employ our birthright as American citizens to hold our government and its representatives accountable for what they do or fail to do.  We will make clear that the people of this country are what matters most, and by rights ought to have decisive influence over who is elected to serve us and what policies they pursue while in office.

 

“We the people declare that beginning in the 2016 election cycle, we will demonstrate that the power and spirit of the American people are greater than the power of the American dollar in electoral politics.  The time for dysfunction, hyper-partisanship, and a failure to solve our nation’s pressing needs is coming to an end.  We the people declare we are now awake to our constitutionally-derived authority and will do our civic duty beginning in 2016 to return effectiveness and accountability to Washington.”
