With consumer spending accounting for 70% of the United States’ GDP, the American consumer should be the single most powerful force in this economy. All too frequently, however, consumers find themselves disadvantaged by American companies that use their financial support of the political system to create an uneven marketplace.
In spite of decades of this treatment, consumers too often rely on the government to intercede on their behalf and make the marketplace more equitable. Consumers need to establish themselves as a vigilant force for marketplace reform and use education, organization and commitment to combat the seemingly endless proliferation of marketplace abuses.
According to The Militant Consumer, “American consumers get no respect. We are responsible for 70 cents of every dollar made by everyone in the United States. The American Consumer should be the single most powerful force in this economy yet we have remarkably little clout. Studies show that consumer’s frustration and rage is at an all time high. The Militant Consumer’s goal is to redefine the marketplace, leveling the field so that companies and consumers can speak with an equal voice.”

Numerous times, the United States has witnessed the power of activism when millions of people raised their voices together. In the enlightening words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” The mission of The Militant Consumer is to give a positive voice for change to consumers’ anger and frustration and to help the U.S. economy not only remain the world’s most vibrant and powerful but become its fairest.
