Swiss Democracy Brings Liberty

At last, a solution to police brutality!
Switzerland is the most prosperous, freedom-oriented nation in the world and it is a true decentralized confederation as was the United States under the Articles of Confederation...

The very successful Swiss model of confederation government, citizen direct democracy & the devolution of power & programs to state & local jurisdictions best limits government power, special interest and bureaucratic control over free citizens. - The Swiss Confederation Institute
