Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) July 10, 2007 -- With a turn out of eight-percent, the March 2007 Los Angeles City Council and School Board election is a reflection of a national and local democracy in decline. An Associated Press poll found that 75% of Americans believe the United States is moving in the wrong direction.
After twenty-eight years involved in local politics, campaign consulting, and city government, author and candidate Roland Aranjo with the support of national democracy networks is initiating a historic 50 state National Democracy Revival Tour.
According to Aranjo, âthe 2008 Presidential election could easily have four strong national candidates, causing a situation similar to 2000 in which the candidate with the most popular votes does not win enough Electoral College votes to become President. However, this time the top candidate might not concede as Democrats Al Gore and Lieberman did in 2000, causing a Constitutional crisis. It is time for us to focus on the state of our democratic institutions to revive our democracy.â
On Saturday, July 21st at 11:00 AM, at the Antigua Coffee House, 4836 N. Huntington Dr., Los Angeles CA 90032, Aranjo with local democracy activists will announce the schedule and purpose of Democracy Revival Tour. âInstead of us complaining about our democracy, we have the power to come together to find creative solutions to our democracy crisis. It is our goal to move us from division to unity, from disconnect to connection and from despair to hope.â Aranjo proclaimed.
In his innovate book, Democracy, Declaring Our Power; How the Law of Attraction Applies to Society and Democracy, Aranjo traces the 2,500 year history of democracy with all of its variations from the ancient city state of Athens Greece to now. Once the world model, the book describes how American democracy has been taken over by powerful special interests. Through applying the law of attraction, Aranjo discusses how all citizens have the power to revive democracy. âDemocracy at the most fundamental level is we the people empowered.â stated Aranjo.
Roland Aranjo has been active in politics, campaigns and government service for the past 28 years, making government and democracy work for the benefit of the people. Aranjo is a candidate for the Democratic nominee for President of the United States of America and the author of the innovative book, Democracy, Declaring Our Power.
