The Citizens of the United States vs. the United States Government:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
The current political and economic system in the US serves a tiny minority of wealthy and corporate interests to the detriment of the 99% of US citizens as well as most of the citizens of the world and the environment we all depend on for survival. At a time when most citizens (regardless of political party affiliation) want a universal health care system, and end to our endless wars, more investment in education and in clean energy technologies, reforms to our criminal justice system, campaign finance reform and a return to Glass-Steagall like regulations of Wall Street our "representatives" in the government fight against all meaningful reform and investment in our nation.
Due to this willful neglect and the anti-democratic policies pushed by those holding power, we the people hereby wish to file a class action lawsuit against the US government for violating our constitutional rights.
