“LET’S TAKE THE HOUSE IN NOVEMBER 2008” by Carol Wolman.

We the People, under the US Constitution, are self-governing. We delegate our sovereignty to our elected officials, the president, vice president, senators and representatives. These individuals are supposed to be public servants, carrying out our will.

The system has broken down. We the People elected a Democratic majority to Congress last November for the purpose of getting us out of Iraq and curbing the power of the Executive Branch. Instead, Congress OK’d and funded the “surge”, ok’d increased warrantless surveillance, ok’d an attack on Iran way before the fact.
