Power Remains Vested in the People - We the People

Wherever the human species reside, it should be remembered that the power to maintain and to sustain good governance, rests squarely with the people - we the people.

This fact of humankind has been reiterated over the years via the effectiveness and will of the people for a government of the people, by the people and for the people, based upon the unique characteristics of their culture. 

From the French and American Revolutions, to the Cuban Revolution, to the founding of the People's Republic of China, to the color revolutions of Europe and various political movements in Africa, in Asia, in Latin American and in the Caribbean, the people, whether acting on their own behalf, or assigning their will to a party or group, have exercised their vested power on a number of occasions. This year, 2018, could be another such occasion.

Thus, today's chaotic current affairs and issues could easily be solved by the people who have the power to change the present trajectory of discord, agitation, classism, impunity to the wealthy and abuse of human rights.

Under the political systems where the power of the people is vested in the right of the people to vote, then, we the people must turn up for upcoming elections in unprecedented numbers so that expressed desired changes could be enacted with a view toward bestowing much needed checks and balances upon a "runaway Executive". 

But nothing will get done until enough of the people do re-affirm themselves to the proposition that all political power remains vested in we the people.
