Some people this morning are marveling that the Supreme Court did not stop the execution of Troy Davis based on all the evidence supporting his probable innocence.
I am not one of these people. This is just proof of how far the judicial branch will go to prop up a system that needs serious overhaul and a long serious look at upholding the death penalty. Troy Davis is the symbol of our broken judicial system and rather than admit it, the members of the Supreme Court choose the path of willful blindness–to pretend as if “justice” had been served.
We see almost daily how far our legislative and executive branches go to prop up the multilevel marketing scheme that they call the US economy–a scheme that continues to make them richer by taking from those in our society who can least afford it.
Yes, we can stop their criminal assault on America, but only if we are willing to stand up and run as Independents for Congress ourselves. It is stupid to continue to appeal to any of the people in Washington. They don’t give a damn. How many more examples of it do we have to see before we finally understand who they are and what they really represent?
Don’t just be angry. Do something about it! Go right now to your State elections and candidate information site. Find out what the process is for a person in your state to run for U.S. Congress. Then follow those steps and get yourself elected as an Independent candidate to represent your own U.S. Congressional District.
Believe me. The American people are angry enough at BOTH parties to select just about anyone other than a Republican/Tea Party or Democratic candidate in 2012. GO FOR IT.
One of the best things that anyone can do for Troy Davis is to run for office and work to change the system. You are NOT going to change the system by appealing to the ones who are running Washington. They are deaf and willfully blind to any of your pleas.
