It is now mathematically impossible for this campaign to appear on the ballot in all 50 States this fall. I did not get into this race to play spoiler and STEAL votes from anyone.
Therefore, I am suspending my campaign for President of the United States in 2020.
This fall, VOTE for the candidate that would NOT abuse their power while serving THE PEOPLE of the United States.
VOTE for the candidate that would treat ALL PEOPLE as equal, and would not seek to inflame divisions to further their own political agendas.
VOTE for the candidate who demands ACCOUNTABILITY for the actions of Sexual Predators, and who holds themselves to a HIGHER STANDARD… demonstrating the actions our Commander-in-Chief should ALWAYS take while in Office.
I cannot tell you who to support for President this fall. The only thing I can tell you with 100% certainty is…
VOTE for the candidate who is NOT
Donald J. Trump.
That is the position I will take this fall. I suggest everyone else do the SAME.
Thank you to everyone who has supported my endeavor over the course of these two years and four months, especially my wife. Though she has not believed in my idealism, she has allowed me to do what I believed was necessary… and I am forever grateful.
“ON MY HONOR, I will do my best to do my DUTY to God and my Country, and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at ALL TIMES; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” — The Scout Oath. (BSA)
That was all I ever wanted to do… thank you for allowing me to.
CHAINED by an oppressive MASTER… your struggle, is now OUR struggle.
Forced to work AGAINST OUR WILL… your fight for SURVIVAL, becomes OUR fight as well.
“Free at last! Free at last!” It cannot be… it will not be, until ALL of us are.
If it is not for ONE of us, then it is not for ALL of us. Those chains that bind have been found throughout Human History, burdens forced upon OTHERS because of who they ARE, or the GOD they worship. In every ancient text found in every religion, there once was a PEOPLE who were oppressed… and then they were SET FREE.
That struggle is now OUR struggle.
That FIGHT is now OUR fight…
May OUR STORY be revered just the same.
The WORLD has heard your story… and the citizens of the WORLD feel the same. They now turn to the United States for leadership, saying “Well, it’s about bloody time the Americans showed up… we’ve been doing this since 2010!”
… eventually, we find our way.
Because we ALREADY have the answer! It’s written within our Founding Documents… Hidden for those with EYES TO SEE!
How we DEFINE IT, is how it will BE.
Every Commander-in-Chief has brought with them their own unique interpretation of the Constitution. Some interpretations have been POLAR OPPOSITES, seeming to make illegal, actions undertaken by the previous occupant… almost overnight.
It’s nothing new. It goes all the way back to Jefferson’s era. And certainly, it will continue… well into the future. The stoking of impassioned political fires drives our National Dialogue, it feeds our Body Politic. The phrase “Red Meat” sums it up well. Whatever the issue is, “Gin it UP” and throw it to the Political BASE.
And come NEXT ELECTION… we can “Talking Point” it, and “Field Test” it, and find out how the PEOPLE really feel about it.
This issue will bring the DONORS out in DROVES!
As it is with Immigration Reform.
As it is with Reproductive Rights.
As it is with Election Security.
As it is with Civil Rights.
As it is with the Right to Bear Arms.
As it HAS BEEN since the 1994 Crime Bill was PASSED…
… as it was in 1968.
“But where are the SOLUTIONS?”
“How can we continue to raise MONEY on a problem that’s already been SOLVED?”
Besides, we can’t worry about THAT when there’s WAR, OIL, CLIMATE CHANGE, RECESSION, BAILOUTS, SOCIAL SECURITY, WELFARE… distraction on top of distraction.
That’s part of the reason I’ve been so patient. I knew… I was planning on BLOWING UP their entire “game”. Could you imagine… THOSE TWO, on a debate stage, squaring off against one of their own CONSTITUENTS?!
Someone bring a BUCKET… we’re about to watch a couple SNOWFLAKES melt!
I believe that is what the American People want to SEE. That is why I launched this campaign, and I have found NO EVIDENCE to show otherwise. Left or Right, Red or Blue… we ALL know what the problem is.
And one day, I hope THE PEOPLE of this Nation find what they are looking for.
We are called to HONOR our Sacred Duty, as we have PLEDGED we would. We fight for the Liberty of ALL MANKIND, to live their Lives in Happiness.
That is OUR STORY. That is the SPARK of this Nation… to believe so deeply in an IDEA that you would be willing to risk it ALL, just to see it come to PASS. Pursuing such an outlandish concept as allowing THE PEOPLE to govern themselves, all while surrounded by men who still BOW BEFORE A KING…
Theoretical. Blasphemous! OPPOSED by the majority time after time, until one HOT day in July… it was not. UNANIMITY. The BEST IDEAS won the day.
And how do we know that the BEST ideas are OURS? Because of the genius found within their design… they knew they would get it WRONG.
That is why it is WORTHY of our celebration, because it can be CHANGED!
Everything GOOD that can come from this Nation ALREADY EXISTS, right NOW. What becomes manifest, we decide… every day.
Equality, not revenge. With malice toward none and with charity for ALL. We, THE PEOPLE… with Liberty and Justice FOR ALL.
Esse quam videri.
Let OUR vision be Future Focused, and let us STAND UNITED.
LONG LIVE THE CONSTITUTION!!
Long live the OFFICE of the President of The United States.
I’ve always wondered that myself. If we want to go back to the Moon, we have the BLUEPRINTS to do so! One or two manned missions… knock out a few scientific errands, tie up a few computational loose ends, snap a few selfies, then call it a day.
It almost seems like a wasted opportunity not to do some location scouting, while we work on a machine that can be used as a reliable workhorse for establishing a permanent human presence on the Moon.
“It’s the way in which the WORLD has moved on since the engineers first created those F1 engines.”
Screenshots from the YouTube video
Every piece of that machine was HAND CRAFTED, custom fit, built to order. A one-of-a-kind that could not be replicated TODAY… the skills and knowledge of the process, now LOST to the passage of TIME.
Still one of the most powerful rocket engines ever made. Still one of the greatest engineering accomplishments of human history. 400,000 people, years of planning and design, trial and error, countless hours manufacturing each part… the Saturn V stands as a testament to the ingenuity of the American People.
“… because engineers can do just about anything.”
5,600 individual pieces, hand crafted, precision welded by skilled American Engineers.
Now, with the knowledge gained over half a century, aided by computer assisted design…
… we can build it with only 40 pieces.
“It’s sometimes easier to redesign something from SCRATCH, than it is to try and remake the PAST.”
At some point it becomes detrimental to hold on to the past simply out of nostalgia. Even the Space Shuttle, as amazing as it was, began to show its age by the end of its service.
Once the cracks have been found, turning a blind eye to potential danger is unacceptable… especially when we know we can do it BETTER.
“A retired Navy admiral charged along with eight military officers with corruption in the ‘Fat Leonard’ bribery case hosted and paid for a lavish sex party in the MacArthur Suite of the Manila Hotel in the Philippines — and used ‘historical memorabilia’ in the room during sex acts, according to a 78-page federal indictment.”
“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,”
the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”
“The money will have to be cut from other city operations; Garcetti, backed by City Council President Nury Martinez and his new Police Commission president, said as much as $150 million would come from the Los Angeles Police Department.”
“The councilman said the proposal could cut about $100 million to $150 million from the police department’s 2020-21 budget…”
“Which is currently $1.86 billion.”
(May 14, 2020… eleven days before the death of George Floyd) “Others are borrowing to cover certain cost increases. California, for example, has already borrowed $348 million from the U.S. Treasury under the federal backstop for states’ unemployment insurance funds. On Thursday, Gov. Gavin Newsom also said the state would have to cut spending on education and other government services.”
“There was ocular proof of what happened. It seemed compelling,” he says of the videotape. “And yet, we saw a verdict that told us we couldn’t trust our lying eyes. That what we thought was open and shut was really ‘a reasonable expression of police control’ toward a black motorist.”
The problem is systemic. It is not isolated… and it’s nothing new.
It touches every aspect of our LIVES.
What we are witnessing is the undoing of hundreds of years of injustice, shattering societal norms that have stood for centuries. We must be patient and not judge too harshly those who are willing to understand… because they must understand. That is how we ensure this change is REAL.
The “Experiment” is not our Constitution… we are the experiment. Because it had never been tried BEFORE. To allow the PEOPLE to choose their Chief Executive, to empower the PEOPLE to choose their DESTINY.
As a means of Last Resort, should evil ever overcome and ascend to POWER, the Electoral College was envisioned to secure the THIRTEEN COLONIES from a BAD ACTOR who sought to destroy their newly found Independence.
Does the Electoral College continue to fulfill that role?
The problems that have developed over the course of the last 230+ years can be solved, but we must have CLARITY.
… how can we expect to SEE IT with the resolution we currently have?
There beneath the patchwork of rectangles, lies the TRUE POWER behind our Constitutional Democracy. They did not know it THEN… but they had a hunch. All that was necessary was the passage of TIME, to gain knowledge and acquire MORE DATA.
We now have what the Framers did not… we have the DATA!
Let us pledge once again our Lives, our Fortunes, and our SACRED HONOR, and ensure it STANDS for another 200.
It makes us angry. It makes us frightened. It makes us fear OTHERS.
It makes us see others as entities, instead of recognizing their HUMANITY… and it steals a piece of our own humanity every time we allow it to do so.
That’s in THEIR community. That doesn’t happen HERE.
Where…? In CALIFORNIA… in NEW YORK?
In MINNESOTA. In KENTUCKY. In GEORGIA.
Civil Forfeitures. Stop-and-frisk.
Mandatory minimum, felons CAN’T VOTE.
Private Prison Industry. School to Prison Pipeline…
(*… cash only, please.)
In the balance, on a razor’s edge, we walk this line. We know for what it IS we fight. It has been demonstrated to us time and again, witnessed by families in countless cities in every State. Documented now by a seventeen year old girl, BRAVE enough to stare down a GROWN MAN. No, we do not need to resort to violence…
The Cause is of such value that it commands its very ascent.
On a day where over 101,000 Americans now STAND SILENT… we should do the same.
Never underestimate the Strength of the American People. Never underestimate the power of SILENCE.✊
STAND UP and SPEAK OUT… for PEACE!
When we commit to the pursuit of PEACE with the same level of PASSION we commit to the pursuit of JUSTICE… we will see BOTH.
May peace and justice come for the family of George Floyd, and for every American, in every city across this Land.
