Jennifer Lawrence Claims There’s a ‘Total Political System Failure in America’

As an opinion piece outlines, a group called RepresentUs claims to be non-partisan — does its goals convince anyone of that?

Actress Jennifer Lawrence has a plan on how to save the United States from the awful political climate we see before us.

Lawrence has joined a group called RepresentUs, which has created a number of goals to start fixing the system many Americans feel is broke.

The goals include creating laws to end political bribery, which usually ends up destroying political elections; ending gerrymandering advocacy; and implementing ranked choice voting, automatic voter registration and the ability to vote from home.

Some Americans feel voting from home is dangerous — but I’ll let her continue.

If you are anything like me, you may find yourself constantly overwhelmed by everything that is wrong with politics. And when I say politics, I’m not talking about Democrats or Republicans. I’m talking about the flaws that exist in our political system regardless of which party is in power.

It’s a corrupt system in which we the people have near zero influence over our own government.

And that is sad. That is not the country I feel like I grew up in.

America was founded on the promise of self-governance, but instead we have statistically non-significant impact on public policy.

We can fix our corrupt political system, save America, and get to work on fixing everything else that’s broken in our country.

RepresentUs claims to be non-partisan.

But matching up with Lawrence, who has been a beacon of liberalism for a while now,. means that remains to be seen.

Unless Lawrence has repented of her former ways, I don’t know if anyone is going to give this new venture a chance.

Here’s a video if you want to see more of what RepresentUs is all about:

Lawrence is a board member of this group, RepresentUs — which also employs a co-founder of Buzzfeed, John Johnson.

That alone should give people pause.
