                                   Wake Up Georgia is NON-Political.

We recognize that nearly everyone in the USA is affiliated with one of the two predominant Major parties (Democatic & Republican) and that most of us HAVE to choose one of these when we go to cast our Votes.
   Of course, there are many OTHER parties in the US.  Three of them are also considered Majors, the Libertarian, Green and Constitutional  Parties, and the rest are Minors.    
(Note:  A 3rd Party is any Party other than the Democratic or Republican Parties and an "Independent" is a Candidate that ran not with a Party)
   It can be said, probably, that there are very few people that truly believe the ENTIRE platform of ANY party.
   BUT, when it comes time to vote - they usually HAVE TO CHOOSE  - either the Democratic or Republican Party - as there are few places where "3rd party" Candidates are "allowed" to run, less where Candidates even "bother" to run and even less that have a "chance" of winning.

With that said, we will go on to say what most people believe about Parties:
1.   Most parties are more interested in their own "self-preservation" than
       they are with the Rights & Liberties of "We The People".
2.   Most Policians are more interested in the "welfare" of themselves, their
       families, their friends and their business "cronies"  (also known as
      Wealth & Political Power) than they are with that of The People.

It appears that in most cases they are RIGHT!
We know that there ARE some HONEST Politicians but they seem to be few.
And, the "political environment" makes it very difficult to identify them.

                           This is The REASON for Wake Up Georgia.

More and more, it appears that even the Supreme Court is biased:
   They have sworn "To Uphold the Constitution as the Law of the Land", which clearly defines & limits the Powers of the Federal Government and gives ALL OTHER Powers to the States or to "The People".
   But, many of the decisions handed down in recent years contain clauses, written by the Justices themselves, that contain "It is MY opinion" or even "It is MY belief", both of which are PROHIBITED by the Constitution! 

                       The Constitution says it is NOT interpretable!
                                  Either it IS there  or  it is NOT there!

   If we want to CHANGE what it says, it gives us ONE, and ONLY one, way to do it:   By means of a Constitutional Amendment.

Many citizens are concerned because they believe a significant portion of the Federal laws passed in recent years are clearly UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

   The Federal Government has been "overstepping" its DEFINED Powers , slowly taking away the "Powers & Sovereignty" from the States and from the Citizens.
  We offer, some insight into Political Parties.

We will list their Official Websites as well as other sites or articles that have something to say about them, what they represent and/or how they work.

THE QUIGLEY FORMULA
This leads to the greatest example possible of leading one’s own opposition: It is the deception of a two-party political system.
   The net effect of Against All Enemies (a book by Richard A. Clarke) was to implement a strategy described by Professor Carroll Quigley (President Clinton’s mentor when he was a student at Georgetown University).
   In his book,
Tragedy and Hope,
Quigley explained the value of allowing people to believe that, by choosing between the Democrat and Republican parties, they are participating in their own political destiny.
  
To a collectivist like Quigley (the political principle of centralized social and economic control, especially of all means of production.- the opposite of individualist), this is a necessary illusion to prevent voters from meddling into the important affairs of state.
   If you have ever wondered why the two American parties appear so different at election time but not so different afterward, listen carefully to Quigley’s approving overview of American politics:
    The National parties and their presidential candidates, with the Eastern Establishment assiduously fostering the process behind the scenes, moved closer together and nearly met in the center with almost identical candidates and platforms, although
the process was concealed as much as possible, by the revival of obsolescent or meaningless war cries and slogans (often going back to the Civil War).
   The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers
   Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election
without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy. …
   Either party in office becomes in time corrupt, tired, unenterprising, and vigorless.  Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.
Are the Two Parties actually THE SAME? 
Does it MATTER which We Choose?

    These videos were made in 2008 and were never finished but their message is RIGHT-ON! 
    They basically agree with Wake Up Georgia, that we need INFORMED VOTERS to bring back the Three (3) Important Bases of our Government: 
             1.   Sovereignty of The People,
             2.   under Rule Of LAW,
             3.   with Checks & Balances;
to keep the Government (and the People within it) Honest and working "FOR The People" instead of "For Themselves" (at the Expense of The People).

Political Cards are tactics used in politics, the media, and other adversarial settings in order to appeal to emotion or even prejudice rather than reason.
Within our society and our political system we have two very different ways of thought:
