Cookie-Cutter Tin-Pot Dictatorship

Imagine the possible outcome of that… Isolated pockets of ideologically pure groups, spread over a VAST distance and unable to organize. Barriers erected, both physical and mental, stopping the free flow of ideas and the communion of countrymen, matriarchs and mothers.

Laws passed to suppress one group of people are seen as frivolous and not impactful in ONE city, and in another… families are terrorized and live in fear, constantly keeping watch, to avoid being destroyed by a family member being deported to a country THEY’VE NEVER KNOWN.

But, that city that does not fear the unfair deportation of “OTHERS”, faces other laws that can destroy THEIR way of life. To artificially shift the judgement, shift the blame… to speak out against oppression is difficult to justify when “money is TIGHT”, and “good jobs are hard to find”…

“Keep your head down, don’t draw attention, and this, TOO, shall pass.”

When MOUTHS need fed and BILLS need paid, that fear of losing it ALL focuses the mind… just as intended.

The only hope for anyone trying to make ends meet, especially with dependents, is the STRENGTH found in a team. Two people, COMMITTED to making a family successful, working to make things better for themselves and also, the future…

“Let’s make sure HALF of the population can only make $0.75 on the dollar compared to the OTHER HALF.” — Lawmakers.

And as we see more families with TWO PARENTS working full-time jobs just to make ends meet, in the middle of it all stands the FUTURE of Our Nation, watching the insanity and only wanting ONE THING- To live in PEACE with their parents in safety.

But the answers they are given don’t seem to fit in with the realities they face. The anxiety at home due to the stress of the family, the anxiety at school due to the constant fear of the unknown assailant.

 

Q: Who knows BEST how to provide the safety these children need at school?

A: Wealthy, geriatric men in the District of Columbia who DEPEND on money from gun lobbies to get re-elected.

 

Q: Who knows BEST how to break the cycle of BOOM and BUST our financial institutions are ENABLING? When they SPECULATE on barrels of FUEL, or WHEAT for our BREAD, or CORN for our CATTLE… Who should be TRUSTED to legislate a SOUND framework, to protect BOTH the people AND the financial institutions from Criminal Behavior?

A: The ELECTED OFFICALS who rely on DONATIONS FROM the SAME financial institutions, and oil companies, and Agra-business. DONATIONS from organizations composed of a… Complex. Of producers and manufactures who supply the Military and Law Enforcement communities… FOR THEIR RE-ELECTION.

 

“But… this is an OUTRAGE! We should PROTEST!”

And, as we saw during the Occupy movement, Laws have been created to keep THAT to a minimum. Any susstained effort make REAL and LASTING fiscal policy change happen in the interest of THE PEOPLE is SILENCED by any means necessary.

 

“We’ll camp RIGHT HERE on this PUBLIC LAND until…”

“… that’s no longer public land, move along.”

 

So it seems pointless to SCREAM and SPEAK OUT, as a single mother loses her home to the bank through foreclosure, and as a grandmother is tossed from her home, with so little to fall back on… After a while, the story is repeated. A new face, another community. Houses boarded up, cul-de-sacs empty. “Things were just starting to turn around from the LAST TIME this happened.”

… and the time before that.

In times past… yes, back in my day… the knowledge of the past was a privileged resource, available only to those with the means to attain it. So, children with parents who had education and upward mobility would naturally be exposed to knowledge and receive guidance, but also take them TO THE KNOWLEDGE… at the library.

The ability to provide the opportunity to learn was dependent on the knowledge of the parents. Children of single-parent homes, or parents with minimal education, work MORE HOURS and have LESS TIME to devote to important support for their kids… and the CYCLE CONTINUED.

Today, the KNOWLEDGE OF THE PAST is fully available in the POCKET of EVERY CHILD. Where, as a child, I would ask questions of my parents and if they didn’t know, the out-of-date encyclopedia from 1971 MIGHT have the answer… The knowledge known only to a few in times past, is now TRIVIAL PURSUIT to the youth today. The political hypocrisy of the past is simply OUTDATED RHETORIC in the eyes of a kid with an iPhone-

 

“Voter fraud is a threat to democracy!”

“… I have FIVE SOURCES that say THAT is a lie.”

 

“Abstinence is the best way to prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancy.”

“… statistics show that EDUCATION starting at an early age AND safe sex practices work more effectively… FALSE.”

 

“A ‘Good Guy’ with a gun is the answer to a ‘Bad Guy’ with a gun.”

“Hold on. Let me ask David Hogg about that one… he just said “that’s bullshit”.

 

The advancement of technology has SKEWED the playing field. The “adults” now have the knowledge and skills of a child, and the child now has the knowledge and TOOLS of a Statesman or a Diplomat.

The ability to deceive and successfully manipulate messages to fit different audiences has become an Historical Artifact, a relic of a time gone by. To “play to the base” inorder to secure a primary nomination, then swing your political views back to a moderate stance for the general election, is FANTASY in the era of live stream, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.

GOOD RIDDANCE! to the liar and manipulator! Two-faced and deceptive, they play their games and keep score with the LIVES lost. They pick up the pieces that were lost by families who’s lives have been shaken and destroyed, put them back together, then sell them to the highest bidder… for personal gain.

And MOST of us can only GRIN and BEAR IT. Unable to do ANYTHING because we are the provider for a family, we swallow our pride… hoping to provide a strong foundation for OUR CHILDREN to one day RISE UP and DEMAND the change…

 

demand the change.

The Space Between

I have reached an impasse. I have a desire to learn and grow, to gather all the knowledge and knowledgeable people necessary to define the processes involved in creating Constitutional Law. And I have to gain the INSIGHT of communities across this Nation. Thankfully I live in Kansas City. The diversity of the Kansas City Metro is why I love living here, but I know there is more I MUST learn, and soon.

There is so much to do! And I don’t want to be the weakest link. I want to spend the next few months leaning about the weaknesses in my ideas. Flaws in the legislation. Points of importance that a skinny white kid from Kansas could not have learned. See… It’s a question I know I should be asking, but do not even know what to ask or to whom it should be addressed! But I KNOW I CAN and I know right now I should.

I need a campaign advisor. And unless they all DONATE their services, first I need funds.

I am still currently taking care of a family as I run my political campaign. I am raising two sons, taking care of housework, grocery shopping, school, et al… And my wife, Jessica, works as a Pediatric Critical Care Nurse. She works nights, so she sleeps during the day. Living with someone who works a night shift automatically shifts your own schedule, so my “hours of operation” revolve around her sleep schedule. We understand the risks involved in such an endeavor. But we also understand the LIMIT to how much risk we can take, for the sake of our children. The benifit for EVERYONE is why I risk anything at all right now.

We WILL find the answers, but ONLY if we try!

What do we want to do… This fall, when we decide the next Congress in November, we will have two months… Of waiting? Of fighting? Of treading water while children remain detained? Or two months of planning, and preparing, and understanding that DIVISION is the root of all this evil. Rage fueled with intent, hell bent on pitting brother against brother. Questioning EACH OTHER instead of THE LIAR. Allowing the dread and drudgery to bring us to our basest instincts- fear and anger.

NO! Do not do that! We MUST look higher than that! We’re on a mission! It’s a WAR ON OUR CONSTITUTION, being fought online and at our ballot box. It’s leaders giving citizens lip service while bowing to our ENEMIES. We have to SECURE OUR LIBERTY. I want to LEARN MORE so I can EDUCATE everyone, to explain EXACTLY what must be done!

… because we CAN! I have learned enough so far to know it’s true. I BELIEVE we can do it. I see the path from HERE to THERE… THAT is the first step!

Help me do it, please! I just ask for the chance to be in the fight, and let the PEOPLE decide.

Keep your head UP!!

To Be Honest…

I may have underestimated the enormity of what I have sought… is that even possible?!! I have chosen a new career, that of “Leader of the Free World”, and somehow underestimated the job. It is fitting. Like the dog who catches the car.

As I look at this moment, I can only be honest- It’s not MY idea… It belongs to EVERYONE. I’m just attempting to give it voice. And the more I interact with people, I FEEL it. It’s there… just out of reach. Have you seen “The Truman Show”?

Mayoral Candidate Jason Kander is having a Door Knocking Rally on Saturday and I REALLY want to go, but I don’t think it would be appropriate. I think I got lucky going to the “March For Our Lives” rally in KCK. If I had done that a few months from now, I could have ruined someone else’s event. That’s the LAST thing I want. And that makes me think “Maybe everyone’s right. Maybe I should shut up until after the midterms.”

Muddled messages, confused electorate, all valid arguments… I just think they are wrong. Be it tomorrow, be it December, either way… Let us start the journey NOW, united and focused on Our goals!

The Ship of State steers like the Titanic. The sooner we turn to avoid the iceberg the better. Right now we are plowing into it HEAD ON. So… wait. In that framework, I think we’ll be ok. The watertight compartment will hold. Wow! That metaphor ended abruptly, and in an unexpected way…

I continue to question it myself. I cannot forget- “Twitter is NOT IRL.” And until that bridge is a bit more “real”, I cannot move forward. In my mind, I cannot afford another misstep. But knowing I am helping to shape the national dialogue is HUMBLING. I’ve seen it twice just recently, and I am forever grateful! Thank you!

AND THAT IS CRAZY TALK! I am some guy with a Twitter account in Kansas! How is that even possible? (… aluminum foil.)

How does one explain to an everyday average person exactly what I’m doing? Fortunately, more and more people are waking up to the idea and explanation is NOT necessary! If I were to go and knock on doors and introduce myself, I could get quite a few votes… on my block. In my City. I am attempting to make every character count when I Tweet, showing my mindset for what future policy would look like. I am discussing and debating points of my platform with “real” people, in a “room” full of politicians, celebrities, journalists, heads of state, and delusional headcases. I am speaking my thoughts and feelings on prescient subjects, and making progress toward change.

For WHAT? For WHOM? For ME? Ha…! The level of INSANITY I am causing my wife is NOT what I want! The insatiable drive to gain a small note of accomplishment, to show her a glimmer of future prospects… and I can’t even get my identity verified on Twitter. I think many believe I am a Russian Bot… yet, I WILL persist.

And THAT is one of my faults… LIKE A MULE! I can be convinced when my thoughts are in error, but the argument must be solid. I am stubborn and my Sons are as well. It’s an unfortunate male Charbonneau trait it seems. I am attempting to direct that family trait by ensuring that stubbornness in my boys, is paired with EDUCATION.

Maybe that is how it works…

As I sit here with pencil and paper, thinking of what I am attempting… Am I insane, or just ahead of the curve?? It is an unnatural feeling, for a mere mortal. I hope I am worthy of such an awesome task. Just some random thoughts about my feelings. I need to go eat dinner so I can finish cleaning the house. It’s so bizarre to be doing dishes and get distracted by foreign policy or the United Nations Convention on the rights of the Child…

(MENTAL NOTE: order more dishwasher detergent)

JC

Yup…

So… yeah. I was the only one who showed up to my “press conference”. I thought I had convinced at least one person I had the right idea. IDK… maybe I haven’t communicated clearly? Maybe I overestimated Twitter. Maybe I have a bad idea. I would have thought by now someone would have said so.

But it is a BEGINING, and in no way THE END. I was giving myself pep talks, to build my confidence, thinking the same thing. So, now I’ll use that as a comfort. It was not my last event. Hopefully next time, I won’t be there alone.

I just wanted to provide an end goal everyone could rally around. An alternative to what is happening right now. I felt it could sway opinions since there would be a solution to support, instead of just fighting AGAINST…

I’m not going away. I’ll be here. Patients is a virtue. I wish I had it.

keep your head up.

The Sword

The idea of coming together and turning our swords into plow shares is both a beautiful aspiration for peace and a statement of blissful ignorance. The Liberty we enjoy today is not given freely as a gift, but OWNED by each successive generation.

We enjoy the CHOICE at all times.

And throughout time, the sword has always been sought as a last resort by those of patients and thought. In this new battlefield, in this war of 1’s and 0’s, the pen is now the sword. In a world where TRUTH is being hawked as LIES, and men of HONOR are stoned for speaking truth, of course the allegorical is now literal!

Look at me… I’m off to fight a “Giant”, the “leader” of the United States.

And all of us are “in the streets” on social media, calling on leaders to DO something, and Our leaders are TALKING about their past accomplishments. The actions our elected officials engage in are obstruction and grandstanding, and they go to great lengths to do so! All while individuals sit on the couch, networking with people in Florida, and New York, and Kansas City, and Mobile, working hard to make a revolution happen. But don’t believe everything you see on TV.

“Live! From Kansas City, it’s a Political REVOLUTION!!”

How amazing is it that grown men are taking their cues from teenagers in a Florida high school?

How shameful is it that the President of the United States of America befriends murders and dictators while spitting in the face of our closest allies?

Right now, Our government has taken children from their parents and holds them prisoner, subcontracting the resposibility of the well being and care of these kids to religious organizations… And the most ordained solution I can envision is rallying every single biker and Harley owner in the country to ride for THIER freedom.

Bikers for Babies? You Damned Straight.

When we stand for the Rule of Law, it cannot be selective. It is for EVERYONE, or it is for NO ONE. If we deny a despot the right to a trial, then we condemn to death the Liberty of our own children. We cannot think ourselves immune to the trampling of our basic human rights because they are carried out in “another land”. If we turn away, knowing these things are happening, it is as if I hold the chains that imprison them, myself.

The surest path to victory in a War of Words is to disarm your opponent.

Through CENSORSHIP, you achieve the appearance of victory, because when silence is what you practice, you won’t see your defeat coming. If LIES are the weapon you choose, your downfall was decided long before you even began… In our country, we have defeated the liar many, MANY times before! The surest way to defeat the LIAR is to unite on the side of TRUTH. The TRUTH must reside in a sacred repository.

We are ALL standing TOGETHER on the side of TRUTH when we stand for the Rule of Law.

Equal Protection Under Law.

With Liberty and Justice for ALL, not the “all” that I decide. Not the “all” that “they” decide. ALL. The piecemeal destruction of our TRUST in the Law is intentional. And it is done through deception. Our Govenment is made to look IMPOTENT in the face of obstacles, in order to rally cries of smaller government. If Our government were truly inept, I would rally to that cry! As we all should.

Due to the method of our Congressional Elections, each and every member of both the House AND the Senate, MUST have money to run for office. Without money, their voice will not be heard, even if they have the BEST ideas.

Elected officials do the legislating of the DONORS who support their election bid. Who donates to candidates? Who does NOT?… or, in many cases cannot because of a lack of disposable income due to paying for two kids, a mortgage, a car payment, increasing health care costs, rising gas prices…

People who would benifit the MOST from ‘good’ legislation have no voice in the legislative process. No regulations and no legislation is profitable. Protections and safety cost money. It is as simple as return on investment. If it was not profitable to fund a candidate, it would not be done.

THE GRIDLOCK IS INTENTIONAL.

IT IS KILLING PEOPLE.

And we must own it, or we are ALL doomed to repeat it.

“Let Experience Solve It.”

George Washington’s Farewell Address. I am awe-struck at the vision these men had when considering the possible outcomes of a newly created government! He knew that his words would be tossed about for as long as the Union stood. He ENSURED it would by how he acted. How he set the tone, for the respect of the Office. So long as man puts pen to paper, the words of true fellowship and liberty will always win the day.

As true visionaries tend to do, Washington saw how this could all end. As he said, “prevent our nation from running the course which hitherto marked the destiny of nations.” He knew because it had happened before. As did ALL the Framers of our Constitution. The evil of Man has corrupted countless souls, as far back as one can see. The historical tyrants recounted today, number far fewer than the ones long forgotten, who’s actions, though less known, still led to the moral corruption of nations just the same.

The greed of corruption. The self-enrichment from the treasure of our nation, sometimes at the cost of our nation. Blood money. Pork. Lard. Pay for Play. Payola. How ever you frame it, it has stagnated cesspools and swamps, burdened the citizens, and upended civilizations throughout history. And knowing this, Washington spoke after two terms as the first President. Seeing how the nations of humanity reacted to this new ‘organization’ “…what did they call it, an ‘experiment?’ Those crazy colonists…”, and knowing this ‘experiment’ would prove a success, he gave some advice as he left-

image

“… the JUST pride of patriotism…” Not that the act of patriotism is just, but the patriotism that, today, We take for granted +200 years later. The strong footing on the moral high ground. Not passively enjoyed as passing fad or trend, but hard won over two centuries of shared loss, and triumphant joy in re-unification.

A Well Worn Relationship, Of Union Celebrated, and not of one Unknown!

We KNOW these words, because they were taught to us in public school. We know these words because we BELIEVE in these ideals, and have lost family to keep them. We see the words of George Washington and take them for granted. Because we have now given our all, for generations, to these conceived principals, and it lives WITHIN US! It is real, it is “good”, and THAT is why it is a “…JUST Patriotism”. “You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together!” His words, now amplified over 200 years.

imageimage

“… to listen to mere speculation in such a case were criminal.” Let experience solve it!

We have now reached a sizable data pool to extrapolate from. The Office of President has been filled as prescribed by the Constitution, 45 times. 45 times our country has elected a President! Yet, to many people in this country, that rings hollow. To many people I know, this doesn’t matter, because they say “my vote doesn’t count. I live in____.” (insert red/blue State) OR “The President is only chosen by Electors, not popular vote.” The disconnect between the value and power of the voter and reality is real. And it is costing lives due to impotent leadership in dealing with natural disasters.

Many of us have forgotten the power to create positive change in our country is balanced… there is a shared responsibility. We are TIED to each other, for better or worse. Most assuredly, we WILL all hang together! No one is doubting that for one moment! That is why it was enshrined in the “Bill of Rights”… Our solution. The ability to Amend, to bend, to create a more perfect union. The existence of a “blank sheet” at the end of our Constitution. It is the most brilliant part of the whole document… nothing. everything. anything. The People’s will. Where the wellspring of fraternity flows strong, that is where OUR just patriotism comes from. Washington KNEW that the exponential growth of human minds, burning brightly within the kiln of a fair and just system, would always provide a solution.

Because the alternative… Our Constitution is a patchwork quilt, made of the beautiful parts of corrupt civilizations long fallen. It’s multi-textural structure, the framework of Laws paired with the flowing and ever changing interpretation, is a singular powerhouse BECAUSE WE SEE IT AS EVER CHANGING… as we should. Our endeavors, though blessed by Universe, are executed through the ‘Word’ of Universe. And as we advance in knowledge, so too must our system of governance. AND KNOWING THIS…  over two hundred years ago, fully envisioning how a free country would likely fall, The Framers made their ONE FATAL ERROR. It is the “experiment” directly spoken of.

The ability to FULLY share responsibility for another soul, whom you will surely never meet. Can that SHARED responsibility be given FREELY to others? AND fully reciprocated? For myself, my family… our future? They balked… They had DOUBT. They had NO DATA to base a conclusion upon.

WE HAVE THAT DATA! THAT DATA IS GOOD DATA! And we now face a point where the worst envisioned fears of the Framers has come to pass. Sadly, it was of their OWN MAKING. But they left us the SOLUTION…. Because the alternative has been done before.

The intensity of the conflict at the heart of Our American struggle is unrecognized among the media, the polling, the leaders and legislators. The voters KNEW the choices for president, and their disgust for the whole corrupt political system was shouted loud and clear… “These are NOT the two best choices for the HONOR of the Office of President of OUR UNITED States.” THAT was the message. That was the demand. “FIX IT!” Not “BURN IT DOWN!”

So long as we follow the Law, and hold sacred the same values and fears our Founding Fathers held, We should re-affirm our Union and create, through Regular Order, and ratified as prescribed in our Constitution, a more perfect system. Dissolve the Electoral College, and establish in Law, our firm faith in the ideals of LIBERTY, EQUALITY, and FRATERNITY.

As this idea surely will create some panic, as change suggests an unmooring will occur, we must not forget, ALL voices MUST BE EQUAL. Though we all come from differing places, we ALL live our daily lives under the common structure that Every One is Created Equal. And ONLY from that shared equality can we have the balance, for our shared economic prosperity, our shared security, and the comfort that comes from connections unseen but treasured none the less. Values we celebrate not because they are Our values, but because they are WORTH CELEBRATING-

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.” –Abraham Lincoln, second Inaugural Address

To a just and lasting peace.

Attn: JOB OPENING

“Are you a Lawyer? Have you ever wanted to work for a Presidential Candidate… Pro bono?!! If so, Mr. Jack Charbonneau wants to offer YOU a snowball’s chance at becoming the LEGAL REPRESENTATION of the next President of the United States!

…act NOW and the toaster* is yours!” 

(*toaster does not exist.)

I am of course referring to the FEC guidelines for political contributions, specifically the section regarding in kind contributions of services, where the last line reads- “Of course, when an individual personally volunteers legal or accounting services to a committee, the above restrictions do not apply.” https://transition.fec.gov/pages/brochures/citizens.shtml

Oh… I’m supposed to say “I’m Jack Charbonneau, and I approved this message.” Because this is my Official website for my political campaign-

Jack Charbonneau 2020: Political Revolution

Yup. I got a number from the IRS today. I got my FEC Candidate number the other day as well… sigh. They gave me a doozey of a number. P00007666. Out of all the randomness and chaos in the universe, THAT’S the number I get!? But it’s just a number. It’s like the thirteenth floor of a building, or the impulse to knock on wood or toss salt over your shoulder. Or looking at the digital clock everyday at 5:55 or 11:11.

I’ve always found numerical oddities like this interesting. This particular number is seen as quite powerful, to some. Growing up as a Southern Baptist in my teens, I have read the stories and heard the Word about who this number is for. Now, even though I am an Atheist, (or as my Aunt Marty would say, He’s walking his ‘path’) I still hold tight to the lessons gained from that book. That the light will always conquer darkness. And I stand on the side of the light. Anyway… I like the power of the seven that comes before it!

So this is my first Official Campaign posting. And I should say, to everyone, I only want to ask ONE question:

“Can you name ONE issue that you care deeply about, that could be solved if we eliminated the corruption of our current campaign finance system?”

I can name MORE than one!

If that answer is yes, then consider another question:

“Would you sign a petition to allow an INDEPENDENT candidate, funded only by INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTIONS, on to the ballot for President in the 2020 election?”

I know… It is a HUGE ask. No… I get it. I was mad at Ralph Nader for TWO YEARS. No joke! And I had a friend who voted for Ross Perot… as a write-in in 2000. I understand what this means. But, if you consider the choices that were on the ballot in 2016, and consider the possible choices coming in 2020…

I cannot think of a single person who could change all of this for the better. No political figure could unite us. They are too polarizing. And their record is tainted by the corruption as well. No celebrity could do it. They are too entangled in their financial web to run. To many, public service could cost them millions in income. No corporate titan like Bill gates or Mark Zuckerberg… for obvious reasons.

…and that brings up another point.

We stand at the precipice of a pivotal moment in our country. We are about to see the conclusion to an investigation into an attack on our country by a foreign adversary. Many wealthy countries, organizations, individuals, good and bad actors from all corners of the globe, are watching and waiting. When decisions are made and legislation is passed, we must act in the light of Full Disclosure. The American People need to know as much as possible as to the true nature of the events of this attack. With OPENESS and OVERSIGHT being supreme, only Full Disclosure will ensure we make the best decisions, as a governing body AND as individuals. Everyone benefits with MORE KNOWLEDGE.

So who do YOU want making the calls with this classified information? It is a heavy time in our country. Non disclosure agreements, backroom handshakes, smiles and cigars, then a plea to the voters for support to fight a fictitious “enemy within”. Partisan politics played out with classified intel, partisan conclusions presenting selected facts, and all at the cost of the MEN AND WOMEN, dedicating decades of their lives to our system of Justice… like a criminal would do.

The criminal enterprise that has grown along side our partisan political structure has cast a shadow upon Our Government. The taint of political contributions from the highest bidder has led to laws that benefit the donors. The need for Congressional candidates to raise money for re-election takes time away from legislating. HOURS every day, calling wealthy donors ‘back home’, asking for their support. And all of that support comes with an implied price tag.

When We choose to UNITE behind a candidate Of the People, one who lives the issues and ills of our society daily… Someone who truly represents the ideals, not ideas, of our Nation. A candidate that understands the struggles a working class family faces, because I am part of a working class family. And I believe that those values, the ones I have been taught and the ones I have learned, are shared by the majority of the electorate. And until We see someone like myself, in The White House, we will remain divided.

If we can see past the division of our daily left/right battles and realize it doesn’t HAVE TO BE ONE OR THE OTHER. Why MUST it be ONE or THE OTHER? When we can have unity and consensus.

When we work together in good faith, We can put a MAN ON THE MOON!

Please consider OPEN and HONEST debate on my idea of creating a ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE tax payer funded Federal Election System. By achieving only this, we open the door to solving ALL issues that directly effect voters. The States have representation. The districts have representation. The President transcends regional politics and is a representative of ALL the People of Our country. The President should be decided DIRECTLY by the People.

We must End The Electoral College.

Keep your head UP!!
