It is time that America returns to a true system of checks and balances. A system that is fair and just! A system where every one is equal regardless of how much money one has. A system where each person has an equal right to the most extensive total system of equal basic rights and liberties for all. However, justice requires the maximization of the total or average welfare across all relevant individuals. Something that has been missing in today's corporate world.

The people of this world are yawning for equality and justice!
