Have you ever heard someone say that when things get bad enough, “they” will fix it? Well, We are “They”
We Are They is on a mission to unite Americans by promoting positive and peaceful participation in our system of government while ensuring our elected officials are accountable to the people. We are pro-American, non-partisan, non-profit, and for the people.
Did you enjoy this past election cycle?
You’re not alone. Many Americans have thrown in the towel with apathy, or protest angrily – with no real impact on the situation. Most think the system is too broken to fix. However, If we do nothing, our system will continue to deteriorate. The fact is, many Americans don’t remember how our government was designed to work. The question is why?
“Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories” – Thomas Jefferson
How did it get this way?
Over the past 20 years, data shows that the will of the general public has nearly no impact on whether federal legislation is passed or blocked. However, corporate interests impact the passage of legislation over 60% of the time when they favor it, and can block it nearly 100% of the time if they oppose. And to make matters worse, 90% of the mainstream media outlets are owned by six major corporations which are among the biggest political contributors impacting our laws. Can we trust their portrayal of political news as unbiased? And can we blame the average, over-worked American for being disconnected from politics-as-usual.
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty” – Thomas Jefferson
What do we do about it?
We Are They is a media and technology platform designed to reach out to the American public and inspire them in an engaging way so they can express their opinion and simultaneously learn about what our government is doing and how it actually works. We wrap this with a feel good brand that all American’s will want wear and financially supports the movement. Knowledge is power, and the numbers still rule!
