WHY YOUR REPRESENTATIVE CANNOT REPRESENT YOU,
AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.
By Charles Key
1: Representatives Cannot Represent
2: The Tyranny of the Rules
3: Protecting the Status Quo
4: How Good Legislators Go Bad
5: Government by the People – the Proposal for Open Government
6: Three Avenues for Change
7: Answering Objections
8: What Can I Do?
The person you elected to protect your interests and propose policy on your behalf has no assurance of being able to do anything because all the legislative power in the state is concentrated in the hands of the Senate President Pro Tempore (Pro Tempe) and the Speaker of the House of Representatives (Speaker). It does not matter what our elected officials want to accomplish on our behalf. The Pro Tempe and the Speaker meet in secret caucuses and in private offices to decide which bills to hear and which bills to kill.
I will outline for you one of the biggest reasons why representative government does not work as it once did. This problem exists in almost every state and in Congress. When you understand what this problem is, you will clearly see that it underlies many other issues, and that changing it will help make other reforms possible. I am going to teach you the step-by-step system you can use to fix this problem in your state. Once you see what needs to be done, you will be prepared to take action and remove a major barrier to true representative government.
