… while you still can.

This is Ink Girl.

From Wikipedia:
Dong Yaoqiong (Chinese: 董瑶琼; born 1989), who owned the Twitter account @Feefeefly, is a young woman who previously lived in Shanghai and was born and raised in Zhuzhou, Hunan province, People’s Republic of China. Before her disappearance, she had been working as a realty agent and had been a dissident in China for a while.

She went incommunicado from 4 July 2018 after uniformed men visited her apartment on the same day that she streamed live video from the square of HNA Group headquarters. The video showed her criticizing the Chinese communist party-style high-pressured governance, authoritarianism as well as brainwashing process imposed on Chinese people. She is also shown splashing ink on a poster of Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, whom she called a dictator on social media.

 

“Right now there are a group of people wearing uniforms outside my door. I’ll go out after I change my clothes. I did not commit a crime. The people and groups that hurt me are the ones who are guilty.”

— Feefeefly

 

She’s on my mind everyday when I’m on Twitter. I see the President’s Tweets as if they were his re-election posters. The ink I hurl STAINS his face with TRUTH. A stain that cannot be washed away or simply papered over. A stain that will last… long after he is gone.

TODAY we are truly writing our Nation’s HISTORY.

 

 

I was moved to speak today by this piece from www.forbes.com:

A $1 BILLION A YEAR INDUSTRY.

 

… and HERE in the United States, we have civil forfeiture, for-profit prison systems, legislatures beholden to DARK MONEY for re-election… is it THAT much of a stretch? As inconceivable as it might seem right NOW, can you SEE the path?

Can you see that destination from HERE?

 

STAND UP and SPEAK OUT!

When you defend the rights of OTHERS, you defend those rights for YOURSELF.

 

 

 

The United States must reclaim its place as a LEADER and DEFENDER of Human Rights throughout the world… that STARTS when we hold ourselves accountable.

LONG LIVE THE FIRST AMENDMENT!!

 

— Jack L. Charbonneau,

INDEPENDENT candidate for President of The United States of America.

Where Will They Draw the Line?

 

22 Veterans commit suicide everyday in the United States of America.

 

Why.

 

Is it a lack of leadership in the VA? Is it the political games played by elected officials with the FUNDS allocated for their care? Is it a lack of opportunity back here in the States when they’ve finished deployment? Is it an incompatibility between training received in the military and training required in the private sector?

While I believe all of these play some role, I believe it’s DEEPER than that. I believe pride in our mission objectives has been lost. When we see our soldiers ordered to abandon a key ally, abandoning families and communities… we see only a small piece of an even larger, camouflaged problem.

When it’s reported that FUNDING for military defense in Ukraine was being withheld until their government complied with demands made by OUR elected officials, remember… there’s MORE to that story. What’s NOT being reported? We are lucky that we have this SMALL glimpse of what is being done in our name. They stored transcripts of conversations in a highly classified server in the White House, specifically conversations they KNEW could put them in legal jeopardy…

 

What else is on that server?

 

The corruption suffered in our government now bleeds over into our military, forcing men and women of HONOR to do DIS-honorable things… because they know the dangerous place where we STAND today, and they want this nation to endure.

Blood AND treasure expended… and members of the Senate say, “The President did nothing wrong. I see no quid pro quo. Well OF COURSE I didn’t read the transcripts… even if I did they would show he did nothing wrong.”

 

 

… and we STILL fight in Afghanistan.

 

Would President Trump have asked Osama Bin Laden for dirt on his political opponents? Would the GOP find THAT acceptable? What IS “acceptable”? Is there NOTHING sacred to them anymore, other than retaining POLITICAL power?

What would it take… is there STILL a red line that no one should be allowed to cross?

 

Vindman

 

 

STAND UP AND SPEAK OUT!

 

Thank you to the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces for securing my right to STAND here today and do just that. FOR THEM… let us restore HONOR in our mission abroad and hold OURSELVES accountable, raising the bar for everyone else.

“Original Intent”

I’ve wrestled with the idea of undoing all that has been done… and I’ve been taught that elections have consequences. Win OR lose, RESPECT should always be given to the Will of The People, and there’s no better time to figure out what’s on their mind than right AFTER an election.

But this moment is different. This moment is unique for MANY reasons, but most importantly, the trials and tribulations we’ve experienced so far have ALL been initiated with INTENT. Actions have been taken to create this situation…

This wound is self-inflicted.

I wonder, if given the chance, would President Lincoln have sought to UNDO the Presidency of James Buchanan? If it would have saved all the LIVES lost during his Presidency… if it were ME, I might have jumped at that chance, especially knowing what we know NOW.

What comes from our actions TOMORROW, begins TODAY. We hold the LIVES of millions in our hands right now. Do we choose to ACT, or do we let time march unopposed, dragging us ALL toward some pre-determined fate?

 

Liberals from the far left cheered and rubbed their hands in delight when Barack Obama was elected President in 2008. “Finally! We can UNDO the Presidency of George W. Bush and restore Justice.”

Conservatives cheered and rubbed THEIR hands with glee after GWB defeated Al Gore, ending 8 years of rule by the party of Bill Clinton. “Finally! We can UNDO the Presidency of Bill Clinton and restore Justice.”

But that DID NOT HAPPEN in either case. What happened was a CHANGE in legislative agendas, pursued by elected officials brought into power as THE PEOPLE saw fit. Never before in our NATION’S HISTORY has a newly elected President worked to erase EVERY legislative accomplishment of the PREVIOUS sitting President…

 

That was before Donald J. Trump.

 

Our system relies on legal precedent. No one was more keenly aware of this than George Washington. He knew every action he would take as President would be emulated by EVERY successive President. The limits of the Chief Executive and the expansive nature of the powers of The Office were established within those first 8 years.

How should we view the presidency of Donald J. Trump? Should any of the actions taken by him and his administration be viewed as legally relevant by a future President?

 

TODAY it’s immigrants from Mexico.

YESTERDAY it was immigrants from JAPAN.

BEFORE THAT  _______. (insert ethnic group HERE)

 

It’s disgusting that it HAS happened. It’s disgusting that it has happened AGAIN. Right now, there is NO WAY to limit what could happen in the FUTURE.

A strong Chief Executive is necessary for the defense of our nation. From foreign enemies to economic instability, from social unrest to natural disaster preparedness and response. The President must have unlimited access to whatever is necessary to defend our nation. In this, the Powers of the Presidency should NOT be constrained, we do so at our own peril in an hour of crisis.

A strong urge to DO SOMETHING, but an inability to ACT due to bureaucratic cowardice, STANDS as the legacy of The League of Nations. 100 years later, that legacy remains intact.

 

Article 1, Section 8, clause 12:

“The Congress shall have power to raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to that use shall be for a longer term than Two Years.”

 

… and then came WWII.

 

And then we saw what evil truly looks like. And now we recognize, the only way to defend against it is to BE PREPARED. Never again can we sit idle as we did after WWI. The technological achievements realized during WWII have re-enforced that. Our nuclear arsenal must be manned at all times… so long as they are ARMED.

If we choose to pursue with reckless abandon, a political paradigm of revenge, we will devour ourselves rhetorically. PURITY will be prized over LIBERTY, and LEVERAGE over opponents will win the day instead of CONSENSUS or COMPROMISE.

 

 

When it comes to Justice and Equality, white men in this nation don’t particularly NEED an advocate… the Constitution was originally written with them in mind! And being ONE of those, I don’t want to see ANY of my rights degraded or removed… and I would fight like hell to ensure them! Speaking as a middle-aged white man, I’m outraged that EVERYONE in this country does NOT enjoy these rights EQUALLY.

EVERYONE who believes in the democratic principals this nation was founded upon should be outraged that the rights of HALF of its citizens can be so easily manipulated and disregarded. That’s STEP ONE of the dictator’s guide to CONQUERING nations…

STEP TWO is Rinse and Repeat.

 

The SHAPE and the COLOR of the body we inhabit should not determine the VALUE of the SOUL within it. Nor should it determine if an individual is WORTHY of Equal Justice Under Law. The Individual Human Experience is shared by ALL of us. What horrifies ME should also terrify YOU. Ensuring Liberty and Equality for EVERYONE guarantees it will continue… when you defend the rights of OTHERS, you defend those rights for YOURSELF.

 

So forgive me…

How can anyone justify locking up over 5000 CHILDREN for NO CRIME, other than doing what they were told to do by their guardian? Mother, father, aunt, uncle… they made a journey over thousands of miles and are taken from the ONLY familiar face they know.

An Obama-era policy, strictly enforced under a new administration, has led to KIDS in jail in a FOREIGN LAND without their PARENTS. Obama… Trump… Who CARES… is it WRONG. Should it STOP? Damn straight it should.

 

ONE is too many. One more day is TOO LONG.

 

Just as it was with the Bush-era practice of the President ordering Drone Strikes. A horrible precedent being established, it was then continued under a new administration and reworked to increase the efficacy, in ways previously unimagined.

 

U.S. drone strikes

 

Could NO ONE in power foresee the possible outcomes of allowing KIDS to be taken away from their parents? Have they never watched The History Channel?

 

ICE

Our government can’t even manage to get THE BASICS right anymore. Courtesy, common sense… decency and civility. Ideas and concepts American Citizens take for granted in everyday life, our Federal Government seems to have forgotten. It is as if we must teach our government how to WALK all over again.

 

Every step we take toward Equality brings us one step closer to realizing the Founders’ ORIGINAL INTENT. They were right in THEORY, if not in PRACTICE. Now, in order to secure it, we must have BOTH… we must PRACTICE what we PREACH. I don’t know about YOU… but that should be a pretty easy thing to DO, seeing as how ALL of us have already pledged an OATH to do just that:

“… with Liberty and Justice for ALL.”

Let’s get it done!

Official Campaign Announcement: I Am Resuming My Campaign.

… ding ding.

 

I am pleased to report that after 10 days of steroids and pain medication, Charlie has regained the use of his back legs! Though not 100%, he is responding well to the treatment… it might not be cancer after all!

His recovery will be slow it seems, and I will have to continue helping him more than usual, but I am confident I can resume my campaign and give it the level of attention it deserves. Unfortunately, Charlie will be focusing on his recovery and will not be returning to his role as my “campaign manager”, effectively cutting my staff in HALF.

 

ATTN: “NOW HIRING!”

 

“Jack Charbonneau 2020: Political Revolution” is now accepting resumes from candidates interested in the following position:

Presidential Campaign Manager

Hours are FLEXIBLE and the pay is… flexible, as well.

 

… but THAT does not matter right now, it’s NOT cancer!

My Paternal Grandmother died of bone cancer… after she had successfully survived THREE heart attacks! Grandpa Loren died of a heart attack just a year or so before her. My step-mother’s dad died of cancer caused by years of chewing tobacco. My Maternal Grandfather died of lung cancer. Back in the early 1980s, the cause was thought to be cigarettes. Twenty years later his son, my Uncle Ron, was diagnosed with Stage 4 prostate cancer. It had spread up his spine and throughout his body.

His doctor, recognizing the family history, told my mom, “Your son should start his yearly prostate exams when he turns 30.” And guess what… they found an “irregularity”. A nodule of some sort, that I must monitor yearly.

Cancer is vicious. It’s indiscriminate and it’s relentless. The incredible team that treated my uncle gave him an extra five years. Beyond all odds… it was quite a feat! But that is rarely the case.

Grandpa Loren died in January 1993 from a heart attack after shoveling snow. That summer, my parents insisted I stayed with Grandma to help her with the chores. By the end of that summer, she was starting her battle with bone cancer of the spine.

9 months later she was gone.

So many stories go that way, “Nine months later…” and the roller coaster stories that fill up those weeks, all the triumphs and setbacks. That time I spent with grandma left quite an impression. At 14, it was the first time the full picture had been painted for me. It’s the same lesson that everyone of us at some point in our lives HAS learned, or will eventually learn, as cancer rates are expected to CLIMB. It’s predicted that nearly 50% of us will be diagnosed with some form of cancer at some point in our lives.

… when is that “Moonshot” going to LAND?

If it were up to ME, I’d like to see it happen SOONER, rather than LATER.

 

 

As I’ve spent the last few days contemplating life or death decisions for my DOG, based on MONEY… it’s not that hard to consider the situation if it were ME. I am fairly new at being diabetic (T1D), but I was fully aware of how dependent I had become the FIRST time I filled my prescription for insulin and needles. Through no fault of my own, my body decided to attack my pancreas and shut down my ability to produce insulin.

 

If I cannot fill that prescription… I will die.

Those prescriptions cost $1000 per month out of pocket.

 

This Presidential Candidacy… 100% brought to you by Elli Lilly and Co, at whatever cost they decide to charge. For me, money has lost all value. Whatever the cost…

It is quite humbling. I’m not sure what happened to the strapping young lad who used to inhabit this body, but I can see WHY he left… this ol’ body’s not quite what it used to be!

 

Without the scientific and technical achievements that have emerged from within this FREE and OPEN society created by our Constitution, I would not be here. I owe my continued existence to this nation, and I am more than happy to do all that I can to ensure its continued existence as well.

So… now you know my “ulterior motive” for seeking the Presidency. The United States must continue to THRIVE and grow technologically to a point where EVERY type one diabetic can once again produce Beta Cells and create their own insulin. I believe someday it WILL happen, but only if the United States endures.

 

There are fights in this world that are STILL worth fighting. We must not forget- OURS is truly a BLESSED NATION! It is a GIFT with which we have been entrusted, to SHARE with all humanity…

 

I would not want to be derelict in THAT duty.

Official Campaign Announcement: Family Emergency

Our dog, Charlie, has become ill. He either has a disk issue that is causing swelling next to his spine, or it’s a tumor. He’s not able to get around very well at the moment on his own and will require extra help while he’s healing. That’s if it’s a ruptured disk. If it’s not… well, there’s not much we’ll be able to do.

We don’t have $5000. Thankfully, we have enough to cover the ER expenses.

So, at this time I am suspending my campaign through the end of October. I will need the extra time to help Charlie and give him the best chance at recovery. I will re-evaluate the situation come November 1st and go from there.

Regardless of the outcome, I will be back on the stump. Right now… family comes first.

Thanks for understanding.

Penny For Your Thoughts

I think I’d rather see a system where someone is able to receive MORE than they should, than a system where someone who is DESERVING of assistance is denied. In time… say, two years down the road when investigations uncover wrong doing, it’s easier to recoup losses from someone who took advantage of the system, than it is for us to say to the family of FOUR with NO income:

“Hey… remember that time two years ago, when the head-of-household for your family LOST their job and you were DENIED assistance? Yeah, sorry about that! But here’s a check for all the irreparable damage that caused… unnecessarily.”

I would feel MUCH better knowing everyone who needs it, regardless of race color or creed, has an equal shot at receiving HELP. Rich or Poor, Christian or Atheist… trials and tribulation come to us ALL, and as a GOOD and CHARITABLE nation, we should ALWAYS lend a hand. Because it’s in the BEST INTEREST of the nation-at-large when everyone succeeds. When the community is successful, more individuals can be successful, each dependent upon the OTHER for their continued prosperity…

Some people might even go so far as to suggest that their relationship COULD be classified as symbiotic… but that wouldn’t have been very much fun now, would it?

 

 

gerrymandering_2It seems to me, the GOP has created the situation they find themselves in today. While BOTH PARTIES have used redistricting in an attempt to secure a political advantage, the Republican Leadership has perfected it. They’ve maximized possible political gain by manipulating the districts through gerrymandering. Now, after DECADES of planning and effort, they’ve managed to reach “critical mass”. By creating Ultra-Conservative districts that will reliably elect Republicans every election, the only thing an incumbent running for re-election has to worry about is a PRIMARY CHALLENGE from within the PARTY.

 

Political purity now prevails over ALL OTHERS.

 

The Ultra-Conservative districts have been more than happy to allow this to continue because their districts are often very wealthy, and communities benefit from the TAX REVENUE generated from those large, wealthy, conservative communities… and making sure that Ultra-Conservative Representative gets re-elected for their FOURTH or FIFTH TERM?

“Well now… that just seems to be in EVERYONE’S interest! At least, everyone from around HERE, wouldn’t YOU say?” (… wink.)

 

As in government, so too in business.

 

Successful businesses MAKE MONEY… year over year, strength is seen in PROFITS. Higher profits, higher STOCK VALUE, more equity, more BUYING POWER. FLAT numbers create doubt. FALLING numbers create JOB OPENINGS. From this point of view ALONE, it’s understandable why businesses hesitate to SPEND MORE MONEY on quality health coverage for employees, or updating equipment to ensure a SAFE working environment, or hiring more people to ensure compliance with federally mandated rules and regulations, inspections, etc. The BOTTOM LINE becomes more important than the PEOPLE who contributed to the success.

 

“What makes YOU so special? There’s TWENTY OTHER PEOPLE who’d love to have YOUR job. You know… you don’t HAVE to work here.”

 

Thereby forcing you into compliance with ___________. Whatever fills in that BLANK. Your financial security becomes their LEVERAGE over ALL of us.

The business sector is starting to get WISE to the situation, though. They’re realizing it does no one any good to continue to devastate the poor and middle classes by paying them a wage that’s BELOW the current standard of living, by NOT offering affordable health care coverage, by NOT paying women EQUAL PAY. Even billionaires like Tom Steyer say they need to be taxed more for the benefit of the nation.

If no one makes enough money to SPEND, then there’s nothing the private sector can DO… starting the cycle down its very predictable path once again. Threatening both businesses AND individuals alike with recession. Sadly, most people aren’t blessed with a GOLDEN PARACHUTE.

Doing the right thing should NOT financially burden businesses. BUT, it is obvious that if we force upon the country a new, legally required, LARGE EXPENSE that was not present BEFORE, our economy would surely contract.

 

You have to SPEND money in order to MAKE money.

 

More people with more money in their pockets means MORE DEMAND… GROWTH. Ensuring WOMEN HAVE EQUAL PAY will expand the economy. Therefore, the Federal Government should initially ASSIST the private sector financially. This will ensure businesses don’t have to make a choice between doing what’s right or making a profit.

Our government should be the referee between CONSUMERS and PRODUCERS who’s interests are best served when BOTH SIDES are strong, stable, and SECURE. When ONE SIDE is far superior to the OTHER, it creates IMBALANCE. It should be the role of the United States Government to anticipate these imbalances and ACT before they occur.

Ensuring SAFETY and SECURITY is vital to our nation’s existence. RIGHT NOW, a lack of personal accountability and mandated safety and security is causing carnage in the form of mass shootings in EVERY STATE, without regard for political affiliations. The Federal Government will NOT be coming to take your guns away because it is REQUIRED of the United States Government to ensure that right continues to EXIST…

So long as THE PEOPLE say it should.

Recklessness and irresponsibility puts our Rights in jeopardy. NO BLAME lies solely with ONE group or entity. NO BLAME lies solely with gun owners. NO BLAME lies solely with gun manufacturers. As well, NO BLAME lies SOLELY with our current legislators, because this problem has been brewing for GENERATIONS. Right now, BLAME only matters if it will help us SOLVE THIS PROBLEM and SAVE LIVES, and at the same time ensure our National Security.

We allowed it to get out of hand because we were LIED TO. We were lulled into a false sense of security about the intentions of the people and entities to which we’ve surrendered the defense of our RIGHTS. They made us believe that GUN MANUFACTURERS and GUN LOBBYING ORGANIZATIONS have the SAME VALUES as American CITIZENS. Individuals… PEOPLE.

Gun manufacturers don’t go to jail for MURDER, but they DO profit from it though… that and ENDLESS WAR. There must be a CLEAR LINE between PRODUCER and CONSUMER, and a CLEAR set of laws specifically designed to hold BOTH SIDES accountable for their actions or inactions… that requires LEGISLATIVE ACTION.

Law and Order. THESE are the tools we use to ensure our security. There’s a reason the Framers wrote that a WELL REGULATED militia is essential to the security of a FREE STATE. They could have simply stated the right to bear arms shall not be infringed, but they knew warfare would advance the methods mankind would employ to secure a strategic military advantage. They also knew our nation would need to defend itself.

These two thoughts are within the SAME SENTANCE.

To overlook ONE HALF in order to argue in support of the OTHER HALF makes no sense, and the discussion that comes from this misguided argument gives rise to a lack of accountability that is killing our CHILDREN. Before this session of Congress, the House had NOT held a hearing on gun violence in 10 YEARS.

CDC_gun_control

The problems we face are not simply BLACK OR WHITE. We can have BOTH safety AND security. We do not have to sacrifice ONE for the OTHER. The influence of DARK MONEY in our system has given rise to legislators that are BEHOLDEN to MONEY that comes from entities that prefer LESS REGULATION, thereby creating legislators who prefer the same. We need leaders who are not in the pocket of gun lobbies and will say NO to their MONEY.

 

 

That requires LEADERSHIP to do it right. That will require a selfless devotion to TRUTH, an unbreakable WILL, and a dedication to doing WHAT’S RIGHT instinctually.

 

 

I know now… that SEED has always been there, just as it is within EVERY American. I suppose all that was necessary for it to TAKE ROOT was a sufficient amount of FERTILIZER. It’s AMAZING what you can get to GROW out here in KANSAS!

If I May Be So Bold…

 

What would you do IF? What COULD you do IF? Sometimes it takes a massive amount of WILL to make IF happen. Where would we BE if no one had TRIED to make IF happen?

… what if no one dared dream what IF could BE?

Sweet-dreams and lullabies are fine for some… if that’s your sort of thing. Sometimes the tales we best remember are born of struggle and misery. If joy was all we ever knew, would we appreciate it as much if we had never known the pain that comes from loss?

 

 

“… you’re going to be so sick and tired of WINNING!”

Once we fully understand what LOSING looks like, we can more fully appreciate what winning CAN be.

 

 

Of course, my sight is limited. If it were up to ME, the motivation behind the initiatives I would pursue would stem from my desire to make things better for the people I see in my life everyday. Speaking as a “housewife” from the suburbs of Kansas City… if it were up to ME? My goodness… things would look a whole lot DIFFERENT!

But right now… it’s not up to me. Right now, it’s not up to the MAJORITY of this nation. Right now it’s all up to ONE MAN, and his control over a handful of powerful legislators who remain loyal to HIM…

… and by PROXY, they give AID AND COMFORT to the man who put him into office.

 

It’s not about what I want. It’s about what SHOULD BE. We should have foreign diplomacy of the PEOPLE, but we are stuck with foreign diplomacy of the DOLLAR. If a private citizen were to KNOWINGLY undertake an action that caused the deaths of hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of lives, that citizen would no doubt face charges and be held accountable. Yet our President abandons a vital ally and a coalition of partners AS HE SEES FIT… consequences be damned.

Is THIS the best our nation can produce? Is this really the BEST WAY to choose the leader of our nation? Donald Trump is only a SYMPTOM of the greater problem within the BODY POLITIC. Don’t forget- there WAS interference in our democratic process in 2016.

Would we be in this situation IF Bernie Sanders was the 2016 Democratic nominee?

What gave RISE to Donald Trump?

 

“The President shall not be the shiniest of TWO TURDS.” -ERB, ‘Abe Lincoln’

 

 

It is my intention to appear on the ballot as an Independent candidate for President of the United States in ALL 50 States. IF I cannot appear on the ballot in ONE of them, I WILL NOT appear in ANY of them. I will not employ the “Home Field Advantage” strategy and run only in the State of Kansas… I have more RESPECT for the people of my State than to do something FOOLISH like that!

 

Ballot access for independent presidential candidates

Screenshot (84)

 

Some State laws require a cash payment to appear on the ballot, while some State laws require candidates to petition their citizens directly. States like California require candidates to collect a number of signatures equal to 1% of the total number of votes cast in the previous election. Kansas requires candidates to collect all petition signatures within a 90 day window. All 50 States have a filing deadline in or around JUNE 2020.

This means my candidacy has an “expiration date”… but then again, don’t we all?

We already know who will be on the ballot in 2020. Right now, as it stands, it will be:

 

Trump (or a supporter of HIS agenda and HIS party)

VS.

ONE of the Democratic Candidates…

 

That’s who our next President WILL BE.

 

In a “normal” time… sure. Generic Democrat all the way. But this is no NORMAL time. Ours is no normal day. We’ve been called upon to do something that will be seen by the eye of History, and judgements will be passed upon us by generations unborn. The path we follow now soon splits into TWO.

Do we continue down paths walked BEFORE? Well trodden by the likes of France, and Germany, and Rome… or do we RISE and dare follow the path that’s NEVER BEEN? By striving for equanimity within our government, we will re-affirm our commitment to Equal Justice Under Law.

What we see NOW is born of the decisions made before us, our thought processes and narratives derive from conversations old as TIME. Grudges held against OTHERS based on concepts and passions our Great-Grandparents once held. Continuing to fight ideological battles generation after generation brings us DOWN.

And now it’s being used AGAINST US by our adversaries in a Propaganda War.

 

 

Our nation was founded with a simple Declaration. Today, I propose we TAKE ACTION to secure this nation, by doing THE SAME:

 

We must END the Electoral College.
