About Citizens for Self Governance Our mission boils down to this simple question. “Who Decides?” Who do you want making important governmental fiscal and policy decisions for you? Washington D.C., the State, your city or town? Get involved in asking “Who Decides?” and become a ‘Citizen for Self-Governance’. Citizens for Self-Governance CSG _491857b8-a43e-11e1-bd35-fece1a36e22a Citizens for Self-Governance (CSG) is a grassroots organization that provides support for independent-minded Americans who want to see power taken away from big government and large institutions and returned to the people. Citizens for Self-Governance Believes that there are four interrelated factors that need to be changed in order to restore America’s luster as a respected, strong, stable, vital and helpful world citizen. If any one of these 4 changes is not achieved, this vision is doomed to failure. These factors are: 1. To reduce the political inefficiency of a Right vs. Left, Republican vs. Democrat paradigm. The focus should be ALL Citizens holding Incumbents accountable for their representation of us. 2. To engage and increase involvement by American Citizens in the political process across all parties. 3. To disperse power from the Federal and State Governments where appropriate, closer to those of us directly affected by the fiscal or policy decisions made or legislated. 4. To end the cycle of incumbency. Make it practical for the citizens to replace legislators at all levels of government when they don’t represent the will of the people. _49185c0e-a43e-11e1-bd35-fece1a36e22a To return American governmental power to the people _49185c90-a43e-11e1-bd35-fece1a36e22a Dispersal of Power Disperse power Engagement Engage the citizens in the political process Centrism Break the Left vs. Right Paradigm Anti-Incumbency End the cycle of incumbency Devolution Devolve power from the Federal to the State and Local level as appropriate. _49185d08-a43e-11e1-bd35-fece1a36e22a 1 _49185d76-a43e-11e1-bd35-fece1a36e22a 3022b6ab-cf89-4a23-9c67-3b9beb60e1a4 Influence Reduce the influence large public and private institutions have on government. _49185dee-a43e-11e1-bd35-fece1a36e22a 2 We also focus on reducing the influence large public and private institutions have on government.
