THE US DEMOCRACY CORPS HAS MOVED HERE!
US DEMOCRACY CORPS
The USCD has been revived! Once on the now defunct website, www.uschamberofdemocracy.com, it has a new home, HERE!
About the USCD
America has a Peace Corps but no peace. America has a State Department with its diplomatic corps but nations fear and loathe us. But now, America has a new, symbolic U.S. Democracy Corps. Members of the Corps are, figuratively speaking, ambassadors for democracy who have in their own ways been promoting peaceful and lawful means of reclaiming social and economic justice in America and establishing peaceful relations with other nations sharing this one earth, the home of humanity.
Anyone who considers themselves a) an advocate for democracy and the general welfare of all Americans b) is anti corpocracy and antiwar, and c) believes in "my country please do right and no wrong" and not "my country right or wrong" is eligible to become a member of the Corps. Use this e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org to join. Being a member does not require any additional activities beyond already being an informal ambassador for democracy. Neither does being a member mean an acceptance of all the views and activities associated with this website.
The U.S. Democracy Corps is Not the Democracy Corps (http://www.democracycorps.com). It was founded in 1999 by James Carville and Stanley Greenberg and “provides free public opinion research and strategic advice to those dedicated to a more responsive Congress and Presidency.” Mr. Carville was a campaign strategist for William Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign. Mr. Greenberg was a polling advisor to President Clinton. Membership in the U.S. Democracy Corps signifies symbolic support of democracy and neither commits members to anything more or any responsibility for this website.
Below is a long list of current members group by interest groups.
If you aren't listed please join the U.S. Democracy Corps. Tell me which group best represents you.
E-mail me at email@example.com Thank you!
