Please join me and hundreds of others on April 11, 2019, in Jefferson City, MO, for the Rally to demand ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in the Great State of Missouri!
With only ONE MORE STATE necessary to reach the required 38 States for ratification, Missouri Legislators need to hear from EVERYONE, because their VOTE speaks not only for citizens of Missouri… but every citizen in THE NATION!
74% of the States have ALREADY DEMANDED Equal Rights for Women and Girls.
Let them know- a vote AGAINST EQUALITY means a vote AGAINST THEIR RE-ELECTION.
STAND UP and SPEAK OUT for EQUAL RIGHTS!!

Below is the text of an email I recently sent to the organizers at project28mo.com to voice my support for the Equal Rights Amendment. It may not be much, but I will do ALL I CAN to help ensure EQUALITY for Women and Girls… let’s get it DONE!!
Not one more generation!
I wanted to voice my excitement, both publicly and privately, for the upcoming rally in Jefferson City. As I said, I hope my presence at the rally will help move legislators to allow a vote on the Equal Rights Amendment, and I am happy to offer my assistance in anyway I can while I am there.
Since my independent presidential campaign is currently running on less than a shoestring, I will only be in town for the day. But that day will be dedicated to serving the cause of Equal Rights and doing all I can to ensure ratification.
About a month after I began my initial campaign, (I was not ‘exploring’ anything, except how to make it official, so I hesitate to call it that…) I became acquainted with Erin Eddy and her work advocating for ratification of multiple bills protecting the Rights of Women and Girls. I have lived in the Kansas City Metro almost all of my life, my wife as well… and neither of us were aware of the pending Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), the still unratified international treaty establishing basic rights for children named the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), or the unratified Convention Ending Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
I would be lying if I said I was surprised to learn this. For me, it only confirmed how rotten the system has become. I began my campaign to raise awareness about the damage being caused by The Speaker of The United States House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, and his use of “The Hastert Rule” in blocking a vote on gun safety legislation in the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. A subject that touches me deeply, as my high school, Olathe North High School, had to deal with gun violence while I was a student.
Speaker Ryan’s cold and calculated refusal to even allow debate on legislation, laid BARE the intentions of this agenda. It is not to further the lives of American Citizens. It is not to protect children and make their lives safer. It is an agenda that promotes fear and division via legislative inaction, in an attempt to ensure a political advantage. On February 14, 2018, that agenda took the lives of 17 CHILDREN in Florida. Unlike the numerous other tragedies before that day, something happened that CHANGED the political landscape. The survivors… children… became The Speaker on that day, and they said NeverAgain.
I knew they would need help.
I wanted to share some of my thoughts, to clarify my position, so as not to appear to be a political opportunist. The corruption caused by our current campaign finance laws, or lack there of, has tainted every issue in our country. Remove the corruption in our national elections and candidates with honor will seek office, not for self-enrichment, but to serve the people, and make change in the interest of the PEOPLE, and not the DONORS. Any agenda that works to empower the PEOPLE and make their voices heard MORE CLEARLY, is an agenda I want to be a PART OF!
When we have UNIVERSAL, FREE and OPEN ACCESS to the ballot, the TRUE INTENT of the people will be realized. We will have CLARITY in our NATIONAL DIALOGUE, and this will lead to action and solutions, as directed by the people… all of them.
Thank you for your time,
