Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.


Well there you have it.

Ninety percent of the people in this country have told Congress that it is time to do something about background checks on buyers of guns. So what difference did that make to the people we send to represent us? Obviously not very much. The Senate has decided that what the people want doesn’t matter as much as getting reelected does.

They have shown us that big money from the NRA and the big business’s that make and sell guns can buy their votes and override the will of the people. I don’t believe there have ever, in the history of this country, been such a blatant disregard of responsibility and the ignoring of the will of the people as we have just witnessed by the Senate’s latest vote.
