“Once you make a decision the universe conspires to make it happen.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
This weekend I decided to run for President of the United States, until I learned that only a select few can actually afford a campaign- which costs over $150 million dollars, and over $2 million just to get your name on the ballot. I guess this explains why we continue to be limited to professional politicians running for office and also gives a deeper understanding to the degree of control that the 1% hold. I know that my expertise as a loveologist does not fully qualify me for the office but since I have been studying the latest research which supports the end of men and the doom of family structures I have concluded that many of our political and economic ills stem from a singular issue in the breakdown of our ability to relate and the value of relationships themselves.
I am calling this effort the People’s Campaign for Positive Change. It will be a completely unfunded, grass roots and viral online campaign, which is set out first to prove that money and policy can and in fact need to be disassociated for democracy to work as it was intended. By running a free campaign, we will be able to clearly reflect and express the needs of the people, and more importantly, not be beholden to any special interests with money. The People’s platform is reflected by concerns across our society, and most recently in the national Occupy movements. Yet political leaders are not listening. Recent debates demonstrate repeatedly that the political one-percenters can’t quite grasp what the people want and need.
The People’s Platform is a three-pronged approach to turn around this country and provide meaningful leadership to a world that is failing under current economic systems. The first and most critical direction is to Re-align Democracy within its historic roots- you know, by the people and for the people. The second is a broader discussion of the Re-allocation of Resources – which is a much bigger discussion than the ongoing argument over tax rates. The third and most lasting impact of the campaign is to Restore Eco-Systems, which is without question, the most critical responsibility we have to each other and the world we live in.
This campaign will only work with widespread viral support. Please repost widely. I am going to make a dozen short videos to communicate the platform’s high points that anyone will be able to understand and pass along. Maybe the 1% will catch on by next year and offer us leadership we can use. WE are the change we are seeking.
Step up and create a future you believe in….
