Jennifer Lawrence Quote

“Be strong. Don’t be a follower. Always do the right thing.” Jennifer Lawrence


“We are witnessing a total political system failure in America. If you’re anything like me you may find yourself constantly overwhelmed by everything that’s wrong with politics. And when I say politics I’m not talking about Democrats or Republicans. I’m talking about the flaws that exist in our political system regardless of which party is in power. And I know, it’s hard to talk about politics these days, but look: The government is ours. We pay for it, so it needs to work for us. And right now it doesn’t. And I mean it really doesn’t.

So, what’s going on here? Is it Russian meddling and social media? Is it him? Is it her? No. Those two were the least popular presidential candidates since they began keeping track of such things. Only 4% of Americans have a great deal of confidence in Congress now. Just 4%. America is no longer even considered a full democracy. We are witnessing total political system failure in America. Which is the complete opposite of what our nation’s founders had in mind.

So I’m going to show you three lines that show what’s causing this failure, how we can fix it, and what you can do about it. So, here’s your first line. What I want you to do is take any issue you really care about and picture it on this line. This line comes from a Princeton University study that shows how public opinion influences the laws that Congress does or doesn’t pass. They looked at eighteen-hundred public opinion polls over a twenty-year period, and we took their data and plotted it in this chart. See this horizontal line?

When you plot it for the average American, you get a line that looks like this.
