Here is an easily accomplished step that anyone can take to shock people in all three branches of the federal government:
(1) Read the letters in the following letter list that state existing facts that did result in catastrophic harm for people and the nation (the most recent would be the letters detailing the deep-sixing of advance information on terrorist attacks, that did occur, and resulted in 4,000 deaths and two wars);
(2) send letters to the recipients, demanding to know why they did nothing with the information;
(3) Publicize their response.
The blowback from this effort, if enough people participated, could be political suicide for the power bloc.
