Webinar: Protecting the American Voice – November 26
By former Iowa State Senator Neal Schuerer – January 2021
The people are speaking, but no one is listening. America’s national government over-reaches while the states readily abdicate their authority. Most citizens know that big business and lobbyists wield too much control. America’s election processes are in question. Many believe the future of this country is in doubt.
Article V of the US Constitution empowers the state governments and the federal government equally. The best advocates of the American people have been, and must continue to be, the locally elected state legislators. The people of the United States must be acknowledged and protected as the sovereign leaders that they are.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt understood this obligation saying, “Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.” Today, all elected officials must listen to both President Roosevelt and the American people.
