Action Radio is the synergy of radio broadcast technology, the internet, the radio audience, articles, podcasts, news videos, social media, expert guests, state and federal legislators, the governors, and even the President, in an entirely new way to make our laws. The citizens, that’s you and me, write the bills, online, and on the air, for submission to the various legislators. We comment on the ones that are accepted and fix the ones rejected. We track and lobby the bills that are in process with as large an audience as we can build around them, and try and build a consensus over bills that are not as popular.
There are no guarantees. We can not write a bill and demand that it be accepted and passed. That is why we have legislators. What we can do is be a source of laws different than the usual powerful corporations, special interests, rich individuals, and way out there activist groups. They all have a vested interest in the outcome. Generally a citizen written bill is for better government or something that benefits every citizen.
“We the People, Give Our Consent to be Governed, Through Writing the Laws by Which We are Governed.” Is this from the Founding Fathers? Sounds like it. No, it’s my quote. It’s also the guiding principle of my radio show, and the mission of Action Radio. Never in the world has there ever been such an experiment in populist legislation, where people, regular people, will actually be crafting the laws that we consent to live under. And it all begins here.
If you want to take part in a historic new adventure in our Constitutional Republic, and actually write the laws you will live under, then you need to join us at Action Radio. It starts with Citizen Bill Ideas. This is an open comments section where you may propose any bill to the group. You can add language to an existing law, take language away from an existing law, you can add an entirely new law, or you can remove an entire law. That goes for government departments as well. Any enabling legislation for any department, local, county, state, or federal, is fair game.
Model Legislation is where you will find my postings of legislation from various legislators around the country. These are bills that have been filed, but are not passed into law. Or, they may be state laws that should be federal. They could be laws in other states. They could be federal laws that need to be in the states as well. They could be local ordnances that adapt well to federal departments. We just have to see what develops.
The Legislation section is where we actually write the bills. I will be controlling what goes in the bills. You will be commenting on the side of each bill. If you have a good addition, correction, or deletion, I will make that change in the bill. When the bill is ready for filing, I will submit it to the appropriate legislator. Should the bill pass and be signed into law, I shall note that on the bill, and probably create a new section on the site for passed bills.
Your input is critical to make this work. You may comment on the site, or send your comments to me. Putting them on the site will get you a faster and better response, as everyone is open to comment on all parts of this website, and this experiment in freedom.
