I paid my $100 today to run for governor. Now I need 3000 signatures. They expect 1500 people to register. Bill Gardner showed me the extensive volumes of laws; so many that the lawyers/courts can’t keep track.
With all the candidates many people won't get important issues before the legislature; especially with 800 to 1000 bills being presented each term and with the special interests attending hearing begging for more money for their favorite programs. In addition, 1 to 100’s of people will be pushing their own agenda, mostly that is not in the best interest of ALL of the people.
This BS must stop. I propose that by networking on social media, that we/you get people to support legislation/policies that are in the best interest of everyone and that addresses basic problems, without more taxpayer funded, stupid gov. programs. A majority of votes is needed and a super majority would be better, so no matter who wins The People can present their demands. I think that the politicians will have no choice to act accordingly.
People have relayed to me many of their concerns. I will publish proposed solutions. There is no need to rehash the problems; we know what they are. Most issues are interrelated, one with another and each having an effect on the others. For example, schools becoming mental health clinics, food/clothing providers and surrogate parents are related to the drug problem, meaningful jobs, personal taxes, consumer taxes (business taxes), personal responsibility, government dependency to solve all problems, phony/crony capitalism and too many control freaks running town governments.
I hope for constructive critiques and suggestions and that those that are “friends” on this site are supportive/part of the majority, including incumbents and those running for office.
Looks like George W. Bush had it correct; “if you are not with us you are against us”.
