The best public policy is made when you are listening to people who are going to be impacted
I currently serve as the senior policy advisor to the Chief Executive Officer. I am a licensed clinical psychologist who facilitates the CEO's involvement in policy issues, government relations and inter-organizational affairs. I also coordinate policy initiatives, serve as the internal point person on policy matters, and oversee the Office of International Affairs. Before attaining this post, I spent eight years as the associate executive director for public interest policy. I was actively involved in the development of federal policy initiatives pertaining to special populations, all while acting as co-director of the internal fellowship initiatives. I previously served as a consultant on federal policy matters, after having held several senior policy positions at the association in the mid-1990s.

"Americans have long believed that if all the world’s countries were to become democracies, everyone would live safer and more prosperous lives."
Why do you think American version of democracy is not favored by other countries?

Somewhere along the way, we have lost sight of this part:"Promote the general Welfare".
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

That doesn't mean more welfare...And your complaint doesn't mean the gov. doesn't promote the general welfare pretty much daily and in policy.

I don't think general welfare in the context of the constitution is the same as welfare in the context of the welfare state.

Where does she say"promote the general welfare" means"more welfare"? And, yes, her"complaint" DOES mean she believes the government is not promoting the general welfare. I think she's right.

Thank you, anyone, that studied the Constitution would know that.
It's not even the right path for us. Our democracy has been corrupted by money. It no longer works.
