A Moment For Clarity
I was hoping my campaign rollout speech would be a lot flashier than this. Possibly a celebration. After all, no matter what I want to change, the fact is- campaigns run on donations. Without money, you cannot run.
But, I am motivated today for reasons, no one celebrates. I made my first campaign video on February 17, 2018, three days after the shooting at MSDHS. On that day, I decided to fully commit to a wild-eyed, half baked notion, that humanity CAN GOVERN ITSELF.
The idea was not mine, but it has become more and more obvious, since I first contemplated what a Presidential run would look like, for a “housewife” like myself.
Who would vote for “some guy” from Kansas?!!
Each day I have asked myself that question, and each day I find, more people than I thought the previous day, would entertain that idea. It is an explosive idea, and NOT to be toyed with. It is, in a sense, a “sacred” honor for Citizens of this Nation. The penultimate embodiment, of “American Exceptionalism”.
And I choose to pursue it, NOW.
I am Jack Charbonneau, and I am running for president, as an Independent candidate, in 2020. Funded ONLY by individual contributions, NOT beholden to any entity, other than my political campaign named “Jack Charbonneau 2020: Political revolution”. JackCharbonneau.com
And as I said, I would have preferred balloons… maybe a band? Definitely a BANNER. being the soul contributor to my campaign makes that difficult. And I feel my hand has been forced. Someone said, “Call.” Since I’m already “all in”… it’s time to lay ’em down.
On Monday this week a man, named Donald Trump, CAPITULATED to a hostile foreign adversary. BOTH Leaders stood, speaking of uniting our countries’ counter-intelligence services, to help stop terror. Working with Israel, and Iran, to further peaceful use of radioactive materials, and spoke NOTHING of the MURDER of dissidents, the SILENCING of opposition, or the MURDER of journalists reporting the TRUTH.
ALL of which effects EVRY SINGLE PERSON in this country, but seemingly, only on some far distance scale. I should be more worried about putting food in front of my kids, than I am some Billionaire Strongmen, profiting off of Our National Security… as it should be!
The Leadership of the United States Congress, and The President himself, DO NOT represent the ideals of the majority of the country. From Statehouse, to The House, the candidates presented are on the ballot because of ONE REASON- they have received money, from an organization or group, with a particular agenda and, money to BURN.
These candidates seek office to legislate for the DONORS, NOT the VOTERS.
RED or BLUE… they are BOTH the same.
When We choose to STAND UP and DEMAND corrupt money is removed from Our elections, and create an election system that is 100% Tax Payer Funded, our elections will start to focus on the candidates’ IDEAS, not on their bank accounts.
… On VOTERS, not DONORS.
… On SOLUTIONS, not DECEPTION.
… On the Rule of Law, not LIES.
Because it is obvious, our elected officials seem to side with special interest groups over voters EVERYTIME.
I humbly ask every voter one question: “Would you sign a petition to allow an Independent, third candidate on the ballot for President in 2020?”
Ours is a government Of The People. As such, we OWN every action taken by OUR Government. In OUR name, we give OUR Blessing, each time We vote. The power of the vote is expressed clearly in a winner-take-all system, with only the rare exception.
The President of the United States has been chosen 45 times now, with a clear majority of voters being represented by the winner. Only a small number of times has the vote been split, by three or more candidates, leading to a President without a clear majority, and still FEWER have won the Popular Vote, only to loose the Electoral College.
And in the clear cut elections, the numbers match the intentions of the electorate. When our system of governance works as intended…
When the American people UNITE behind a President, we visit other worlds in Peace, for ALL Mankind.
When the American People come to the defense of Liberty abroad, CONTINENTS remain FREE.
When We Stand for the idea that ALL Mankind is created EQUAL, we are UNSTOPPABLE!
The Office of the President has changed dramatically, since first held by Washington with, 4 cabinet positions. The responsibilities of our Nation, have grown in number and importance, and today the Office of our Chief Executive holds the responsibility, of safeguarding every living being on this Earth.
Our scientific achievements are the direct product of the greatest, democratic “Experiment” ever undertaken. We are here today as testament to that fact!
After forty-five elections, we can conclude unequivocally, the Experiment IS A SUCCESS! Mankind CAN govern itself IN PEACE! The “safeguard” put in place, over two hundred years ago, to protect our elections from interference by foreign enemies, has proven to be it’s fatal error. It is the weakness our enemy exploits for victory. Our Electoral College has been exploited, twice now in 20 years, to bring to power a minority opinion. A brand of governance that has produced two wars, trillions in debt, an economic disaster, and the undermining of our faith in government.
And now, we see, by not taking full responsibility for the Power of our vote, by NOT owning the Office that represents the People, of the Last Best Chance for Humanity on the Face of the Earth, we have lost Our voice in governance. We have allowed ‘others’ to decide our fate.
We MUST take control BACK, and control our SHARED DESTINY. We must SPEAK OUT, in unison, before that Right is TAKEN AWAY.
-100% tax payer funded elections.
-ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE, OPEN and SECURE voter EMPOWERMENT, safeguarding our Right to vote.
-Primary Elections with MULTIPLE ballots by the National Electorate.
All of this will create a legislature that governs with the People’s interests in mind. Once the corruption is removed, fair and just Laws will replace Laws that keep others down, Laws that hold US ALL back, from discovering TRUTH.
The politics of FEAR and DIVISON is over. Everyone should STAND UP and SPEAK CLEARLY. These are NOT times to be SILENT. The enemy we face today thrives in SILENCE. OPEN and HONEST debate, in ‘good faith’, will show everyone exactly where you stand. And regardless what your ideology is, when you stand for Equal Justice Under Law, We ALL stand on the winning side.
We must END the Electoral College.
