candidate who seeks public office for the express purpose of
creating a new cultural, economic, and political paradigm that
transcends the current corrupt and unsustainable one we now
have, will appear at first glance, to be unelectable.
This is true
even though a great many citizens are aware that the current
paradigm -- which is now thoroughly corrupted by greed,
ignorance and fear -- offers the body politic nothing more
than a future headed towards tyranny and despair.
It is a
common human trait to resist change, even positive change.
This is true because it will always feel like to fight
City Hall and win is not only improbable, but impossible.
That is exactly what the current paradigm wants you to
feel, and it is also that feeling of fear that can keep those
who want change from ever achieving it.
The question then becomes, is your freedom and your
hope for a better future important enough that it inspires you
to overcome that fear and move toward the kind of society you
have much time and the future is beginning to look a bit grim.
The longer you wait, the more time the opposition has
to regroup and fortify their defense in support of the status
quo. The truth is,
that if you ever hope to achieve what you say you want,
youíre going to have to support candidates like me, even
though success seems improbable.
Candidates who say what you want to hear but continue
play the game the way itís always been played, might seem
viable, even attractive, but they are unlikely to be the
change agent you are really looking for.
You have to
begin to think in terms of the new paradigm.
For example, if you donít like a political system
that is corrupted by money, youíre going to have to support
candidates like me who are willing to move forward without
trying to raise money, even though being without money makes
the effort appear hopeless.
Itís only hopeless if a critical mass thinks
itís hopeless. That
means itís not hopeless if a critical mass thinks thereís
a chance to win and is willing to try. So
whether itís hopeless or not depends on you and which
critical mass you choose to create and be a part of.
It will be
hopeless to the extent that you let the pundits do your
thinking for you, rather than think for yourself, or otherwise
base your own thoughts and actions on what you believe others
might think or do. How
else do you suppose you will ever transform a system
that corrupts and seduces citizens with fame and money
if you arenít willing to let go of the past and vote for
candidates who donít fit the standard model?
If youíre unwilling to be seduced by the current
paradigm, then all the money in the world won't make you vote
against your own interests when you get into the voting booth.
doesnít come easy and any change thatís worth pursuing is
going to be an uphill battle.
If youíre not willing to make the effort, itís not
going to happen. Itís
time to stop complaining about everything that doesnít work
and start trying to make things work.
The Occupy movement is a good start because it allows
those who have common aspirations to see that there are others
just like them who are also fed up with the corruption and the
also offers a fantastic network for getting the word out in
pursuit of transformative change.
If the people who are now Occupying various landscapes
around the country were willing to stand with me, the powers
that be would really be confused.
All you have to do is stay in touch with your deepest
aspirations and you wonít be confused.
I suggest you get moving.
I am offering
you a way forward. The
channels of communication are now open.
Itís time to use them for their intended purpose.
what I am offering you and if you think it has merit,
spread the word. You
have to start thinking outside the box and that means, open
your mind to possibilities you havenít considered before.
Iíve laid my own ideas all out for you.
With respect to the election in 2012, the window of
opportunity is not going to remain open indefinitely.
You can choose me, Obama, or whoever the next
Republican candidate will turn out to be.
There might also later be a Green Party, Libertarian,
Socialist and/or other candidates as well.
You're going to have to determine what is
important to you and what youíre going to do about it.
If you have a better idea of how to move forward than
what I am offering you, I suggest you get clear on what that
is and why you think that something else is better, and then take action to make what you want a reality.
consider this: On
November 22, 2011 George W. Bush was found guilty by the Kuala
Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal.
They found him guilty of Crimes against Peace, Crimes
against Humanity and War crimes.
His culpability has been ďsuspectedĒ for a long
time. Now evidence
has been presented and a judgment handed down by a legitimate
Out of all
the current candidates running for President only Ron Paul and
I made any public statements during the Bush administration in
an effort to get him to stop his criminal behavior and/or to
bring him to justice. Obama
and most other elected officials refuse to hold him
Ron Paul was a Congressman at the time, he never offered
articles of impeachment. I
did, but of course my articles didnít count for much in
the halls of Congress.
And now no one mentions that Obama has committed
many of the same crimes his predecessor committed.
now he advertises an end to the war in Iraq thinking
that no one will remember that heís a
criminal in his own right, or that he refuses to prosecute
others who also were. In
any event, it should be obvious by now that other than Ron Paul
and me, none of the other candidates can be trusted to keep
their oath of office and therefore, on that information alone,
they ought to be disqualified as candidates for President in
the mind of every honorable and thoughtful citizen.
If you vote for any of them you are choosing to be
complicit in the crimes they committed or abetted.
If Ron Paul
were to become the Republican candidate of choice, while he
deserves to be considered a viable candidate, his simplistic
understanding of economics along with some of the unworkable
economic policies he favors would continue to enrich the rich
at the expense of everyone else, just as it has in the past.
And given Paulís philosophy of how government ought
to operate, he would not be inclined to put in place the
necessary regulations needed to keep the ruling elite from
running amuck and taking unfair advantage of everyone else as
they always try to do. Paul
is an honorable man but heís not qualified to take us in the
direction we need to go.
So what are
you going to do? Whatever
it is, I suggest you get busy before itís too late.
The election is only a year away.
The ruling elite are gearing up to win.
How are you going to respond Ö and are you going to
respond in time to make the kind of difference itís going to
take to save this country from ruin?
Donít ignore this coming election.
You donít have to play by their rules, you can play
is the announcment of my candidacy and my platform.
Notice that I
donít mention jobs in either of these documents.
The economic change you seek isnít going to happen
until and unless thereís a paradigm shift.
I can promise you
that. And that paradigm shift is not on any other
candidateís agenda right now but mine. None of the
other candidates even understand what I'm talking about.
I hope you do.
Candidate for President of the United States in 2012
