On The Issues

Below Are David Jon Sponheim's responses On The Issues:

1. Abortion is a woman's right   - Strongly Support

   However, I support new legislation that would limit Abortions to First Trimester Only, thus reducing the suffering endured by the child. In cases of rape, unusual circumstances would be an exemption.

 
2. Require companies to hire more women & minorities - Strongly Oppose

   The tyranny of Federal mandates like Affirmative Action has left our Government under qualified and under prepared to properly handle its affairs. What right do we have to influence the private hiring practices of companies that are trying to compete in an ever changing economy?

 
3. Same-sex domestic partnership benefits - Oppose

   A same sex Marriage Law on a National level will affect all aspects of insurance company actuarial and underwriting agreements currently in affect. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to provide extensive benefits to an additional population of people. Current costs for Life Insurance, Health Insurance and Pension benefits are already too high for many people and companies in America. Same Sex marriage laws come under the purview of the 10th Amendment and should be determined on a State by State basis.

   

4. Teacher-led prayer in public schools - Strongly Oppose

   It is not the role of the Federal Government to define religion in schools. The constitutional interpretation of the separation of Church and State validates this.

 

5. More federal funding for health coverage - Oppose

   We cannot afford to fund an already over paid Health Care Industry. The rising cost of Health Care has cost Americans their lifesavings!! We need caps on the cost of many health care services. This is one way we will begin to handle the health care crisis. Even with caps, providers can compete in the free market. The other way is a bypass solution that we call the MMU System. The Mobile Medical Unit System will roam all around cities throughout America on a daily basis. It will cost $2 Billion to build 200 Units and deploy them for a year. Existing funding can be found in the current VA Spending Bill.

 

6. Privatize Social Security – Oppose

   I would support a modified approach to Social Security reform. I recommend we limit entitlements to only people who do not currently have a Pension or Retirement fund. We should also limit fund outlays to U.S. Citizens only. I agree with the concept of taking a portion of the general fund and investing in the market, but mostly in secured equities. No individual should bear any responsibility for those funds. Additionally, I support ending the cap on payroll taxes and raising the age of retirement to 70, phased in over 10 years. These adjustments will save the Social Security Trust Fund.

 

7. Parents choose schools via vouchers – Strongly Agree

   The choice of educating children should start with the parent’s responsibility. A parent could home school their child and as long as the child passes a test each semester, the parent would receive that voucher. Similarly, they could use it to pay private schools, as well as public schools. The State’s authority over distributing this income would be overseen by the DOE. The Department of Education can be more of a learning resource provider and less of a bureaucracy. States would no longer be mandated to provide tests for students. The Federal government would standardize, grade and limit tests. Online learning would be a central part of this new model.

 
8. Death Penalty – Agree

   The Death Penalty IS a deterrent in many countries. The Federal Government could impose it in all federal prisons. States reserve the right to decide on this issue. I believe the Death Penalty should only be imposed if there is incriminating DNA evidence in each case. Also, there should only be one appeal allowed. All of this would lessen the financial burden that the judicial and prison system incurs from a convicted felon.

 

9. Mandatory Three Strikes sentencing laws – Agree

   I only support these laws where Capital crimes are committed. The goal of the criminal justice system should be to incarcerate and rehabilitate. Civil or misdemeanor offences are in no way an indication of a person’s propensity to due more harm. It is the obligation of government to protect the public from dangerous individuals.

 
10. Absolute right to gun ownership – Agree

    I support the Second Amendment. I do not want to reinstate the Assault Weapons Ban. The government should require a 7 Day check on all gun ownership. A National Database could prevent persons who have been institutionalized for violence from acquiring a gun legally.

 
11. Make taxes more progressive – Oppose

    Taxes are already progressive. 10% of the population pays 70% of the taxes. I support a Fair/Flat Tax Reform. This will completely eliminate 77,000 pages of tax code and thus, eliminate tax loopholes entirely! The number of CPA’s and Tax attorney who will be displaced, will be absorbed by the GAO. Our Nation will need many more forensic auditors to find the waste and fraud in our system.

 
12. Illegal immigrants earn citizenship – Agree

     Fast Track Naturalization can be achieved with a 6 Month Student Visa program. Unlike the Dream Act, this will be open to people of all ages. A $1,000 filing fee would be required and would include an education in English, U.S. Government and History. A person would be able to take the citizenship test in English as many times as needed with that 6 Month period.  No one with a criminal conviction would qualify for citizenship. After 6 Months, employers will be told that current laws against hiring illegal immigrants will be enforced.

 

13. Support & expand free trade – Oppose

     Our Nation has not gained from any free trade agreements on record. Instead, we have lost market share and jobs to foreign multi-national corporations. This can be seen in every industry. The steel industry, the lumber industry, the textile industry, the electronic industry, the farming industry, the manufacturing industry, the aluminum industry, the paper industry and the auto industry have all suffered as a result of free trade with other nations. Trade is good. Why should it be free?

 

14. The Patriot Act harms civil liberties – Strongly Agree

     It is on record that Presidents have violated the rights of individuals with warrant less wiretaps. In thousands of cases, domestic surveillance was used to monitor and intimidate groups that do not pose a threat to our National Security. I would like to see the Patriot Act revised to prosecute authorities that do not receive a Warrant from a FISA judge, prior to wiretapping.  Also, I do not believe that the TSA should exist. It is an unnecessary work force that slows air travel, ineffectively checks for explosives and violates civil liberties. Plain clothed military personnel could be used at Airports to monitor metal detectors and we can incorporate modern biometric analysis to scan for potential threats.

 

15. Expand the armed forces – Oppose

     I would only consider this if our Nation were attacked directly. The volunteer military has proven to be an excellent size and specialized fighting force. The current budget for military is over $600 Billion per year. This will need to be brought down, if our Nation’s fiscal problems are going to be resolved.

 

16. Stricter limits on political campaign funds – Agree

     More oversight is necessary to prevent political paybacks for large donations. I also support stricter limits, including people not being able to use their own fortunes to finance their campaigns.  In addition, ballot access rules need to be changed so that any candidate seeking the same political office should meet the same requirements imposed on them, such as signatures necessary to get on the ballot. This should take place regardless of party affiliation, incumbency, or financial status.

 

17. US out of Iraq – Oppose

      I was against the Iraq War. However, I do not believe that the dead U.S. Soldiers have died in vain! They have fought to protect the Iraqi people. We have a large amount of infrastructure in Iraq that requires maintenance. Prime Minister Maliki of Iraq has asked us to stay. The Sunni leaders are seeking to separate from his Government, which is the ground work for a crisis in the future. Without a contingency of at least 10,000 troops, we cannot be assured of the Iraqi Army’s ability to maintain security. I also support a long-term strategy for securing the populated regions from insurgent violence. I call it, “Weapons Free Safe Zones”. These zones can be a safe haven against IEDs, and can guard large agricultural areas that help the Iraqi people. Also, I support modernizing the oil fields North of Baghdad. Over time, Iraq can slowly pay the U.S. back for the nearly $2 Trillion dollar investment we have made.

 

18. Replace coal & oil with alternatives – Strongly Agree

     Building a host of new renewable energy sources is at the center of my campaign for the Presidency. Our Nation’s infrastructure requires coal and oil, but these are seen as commodities by the Department of Energy. I recommend that the DOE view these as resources and instigate transparency rules that the oil and coal companies must abide by. Oil future speculation must be done in the open. This will lower the price of a barrel of oil and save U.S. consumers. All Electric Companies should be required to leverage renewable sources for power, before oil and coal can be purchased. Currently, only 20% of our potential hydro electric power is being utilized!

 

19. Drug use is immoral: enforce laws against it – Oppose

     I support legalization for the purpose of increased tax revenue and future bio-diesel from hemp production. As President, I will repeal marijuana from the list of controlled substances, as it is medicinal. The war on drugs should continue against the importation of all other controlled substances. However, I support a slow methodical release of low level drug offenders from our prison system. The benefits of legalization will enhance the well being of our Nation. Drug cartels will lose a huge source of revenue. States like California will earn upwards of $1 Billion per year in tax revenue.

 

20. Allow churches to provide welfare services – Agree

     Churches should be one of the many organizations that serve the general welfare of the Nation. This is in addition to what the government provides. Separation of church and state should ensure that churches are not overseen or regulat

Innovative Ideas For America

David Jon Sponheim is running for President of the United States. David Jon Sponheim has innovative ideas that will lead to Millions of Jobs in the U.S. Click "Read More" to see a  sampling of some of these ideas:

 

  • Comprehensive Energy Plan: In 4 Years time, we can eliminate our reliance on foreign oil by creating Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicles that cost under $15,000 and get 100 MPG. This would involve creating the US auto Corp. owned by all US citizens. Additionally, we support responsible domestic Oil Drilling and creating burner nuclear reactors located at existing nuclear waste sites. This will create much needed clean energy and eliminate 97% of the dangerous nuclear waste in the country, without having to transport it.
  • Ocean Pipeline: An original idea where we can build a pipeline that uses passive desalination to create fresh water. This will broaden our ability to have arable and livable land. This pipeline can also prevent the ravaging effects of any droughts due to global climate change. We estimate an ocean pipeline from LA to Las Vegas could generate 253,000 Gallons of fresh water in a day!
  • Mobile Medical Units: We propose building 200 large 2 Trailer 18 wheel units that can service 200 of our Nation's cities with triage, diagnostic and preventative health care. This will be a virtual bypass to our health care crisis. The projected cost is $2 Billion to build and deploy these units. People will need to pay a small Co-Pay when visiting the MMUs, or they can have that waved if they are unable to pay it.
  • National Opt-In Health Insurance Plan costing $6 Billion: this will provide full basic coverage for only $50 per month. It will add 3,000 new public doctors to the work force, thereby lowering medical costs. It will not be mandatory. If you can't afford it, the option of Medicaid and Medicare is available. We will also allocate $1 Billion to monitor and audit fraud and waste in the health care industry. This fund will also serve as an additional support for unforeseen costs.
  • Solar Rooftop Program: This is a massive installation plan where the Govt supplies the infrastructure for Solar Panels on rooftops in America; virtually leasing the space on your roof, by offering you a kick back on your electric bill. This plan will create 1 Million jobs Nationwide. It will help electric companies meet their green energy requirements by 2020. The govt will earn a percentage of incme from the energy produced. All of this could be funded with our idea of Renewable Energy Savings Bonds.
  • Homestead Renewal Plan: This plan will take money allocated with HUD to purchase toxic assets, like foreclosed properties. We can then provide "sweat equity" jobs where people earn a living wage and earn credit toward owning their own home. It's all about fixing up all the empty homes in America and reviving the dream of home ownership.
  • More Transparency in the White House: Imagine a Web Cam in the oval office! David Jon Sponheim will have a morning chatroom for 1 Hour everyday, where the American people can air their views, ideas and recommendations.

Flat Tax Proposal

The Federal Flat Income Tax could be set at a fixed percentage of annual gross income over $100,000, whether that entity is a person, corporation, small business, etc.; any entity whose income is over a hundred-thousand dollars annually must pay at a fixed percent income. This would eliminate the current federal income tax, capital gains, and the corporate tax. If BP pays 5% of their gross ($284 Billion in 2007, Smith Barney), other taxes would not be necessary.

HERD MENTALITY and the END OF FREEDOM

It's the final stretch toward the Election 2012 and most Americans have been corralled into either the Pen on the Left or the Pen on the Right. This is not an exaggeration. Most of American citizens look at politics as a necessary evil. With Congress having an approval rating of only 13%, we are led to believe that politicians are corrupt. This makes us think that our vote does  not count.  Furthermore, the largeness of the 2 Parties holds everyone into either side, much as a Pen holds in Cattle.
This "Divide and conquer" mentality is locked in place by a media that refuses to allow a Third Party into the Public Debates. The CPD (Council on Public Debating) have refused to give anyone a chance to spike the controlled debates with any controversy. The dialogues of the 2 Candidates are carefully controlled and monitored. All questions of the debaters are screened. This is not Democracy!
If you listen to Neo Cons, they will tell you that the word Democracy does not appear in our Constitution. This is merely an attempt to disenfranchise the left. This is all by design. Divide and Conquer, and most of all, shun the voice of the people. But, the concept of Democracy has roots as far back as Thomas Jefferson in our Country.  Similarly, the Left makes us believe that we need more participation by minorities in our government. A Recent story on NPR radio is exclaiming that only 2% of Latinos are serving in government, compared to 12% in the general population. They want to squelch the rights of citizens who do vote in elections, by giving immigrants greater power in our Government. Voter ID's are being questioned in many states, declaring that many illegals are voting. This is denounced by the Left. The Left wants to break down the Laws that make this Nation a Republic.
Our Freedoms are being challenged with the bilateral support of both parties for the Patriot Act and even worse laws, like N.D.A.A. With this alarming attack on the individual rights of Americans, our leaders are hiding under a veil of protection from a Closed Media and a Closed Congress. They recently left their chambers early on the heals of an Election, without passing a budget for 2013. For the past 3 years, they have failed to pass a budget.
As we head toward the fiscal cliff in December, when tax breaks for the rich subside and mandatory cuts of $100 Billion occur, neither party is taking an active interest in compromise.  The Super Committee had been unable to come to any agreement on massive budget cuts. Instead, we have a President who has enlarged the debt by over $5 Trillion in 4 years, and his one and only opponent has no solutions to solve this fiscal calamity.
In 2012, farmers have faced a massive drought, ALL THE WHILE, there is talk of cutting farm subsidies by the Democrats and the Republicans. Neither party has a solution, like we do, to use Farm Subsidies to grow food and supplement the Food Stamp (EBT) program with revenue from the food. A Third Party could offer a tremendous alternative to the bickering between the 2 Parties.
U.S. Economic Policy is eroding rapidly as well. The position of the 2 Parties is to reward Globalists for Outsourcing. This practice has decimated our industries in America. It has led to losses of jobs that will never be recovered. Nether Party has a plan to deal with this. We do. Our Regionalization plan helps small business growth in the U.S., with an Infrastructure Bank that offers loans for 2% to anyone that hires U.S. Citizens at a "Living Wage".
U.S. Foreign Policy is aimless under both Parties. When George W. Bush announced recently that he endorsed the practice called "Arab Spring", the Republicans became complicit in the act of Economic Hits against other Countries. The U.S. is literally starting Wars by encouraging Protests around the World. The last thing either Party wants is a Protest here in the U.S.!
So, as this lame duck Congress and lame duck President await the results of a rigged election, with only 2 Presidential Candidates, our Nation lays in peril. The Financial Collapse that is happening is hidden from public scrutiny. More and more, businesses are closing. More people are living off their credit cards. It is just a matter of time, before the real problems bury this Economy.
If Ben Bernanke thinks he can print up $40 Billion per month with QE3, and give it to the rich Bankers, then we must become aware of the consequences. All of our savings and equity in America is about to tank. When the Dollar is diluted by this reckless practice performed by the FEDERAL RESERVE (unaffiliated with the Federal Government), we will all lose value in our Dollar. Inflation is kicking in on a large scale. Retail goods are skyrocketing. Home prices are plummeting, and our Personal savings are dwindling.
 
Americans have only one way out at this time. We must take charge of our Government and oust these scumbags from Washington. If we do not wake up to the power of Multi-National Corporations over this political process, then we will be doomed. There is no equivocation in this matter. We can reach a compromise on issues, only when we have a politically Centrist Government. Both sides can coexist in this environment. But, the critical difference is, Centrists can formulate strategies that will cut the budget and build new enterprise. The 2 Parties have proven they cannot do this.
So, if you are wandering in the middle of the political spectrum, do not be fooled by the promises of either side; avoid being herded into the Left or Right. Join a new direction here in the Center of the spectrum. Join America's Third Party!

America's Propaganda Machine

Most people don't know this, but the mainstream media is completely controlled by government censors. The most recent Press Conference by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona regarding Obama's forged Birth Certificate, was suppressed in the media. CLICK FOR PROOF

This type of media manipulation is not unprecedented in US history. As far back as the 1930s, FDR used similar tactics to prevent a Third Party Leader and Anti-War activist with 30 million followers, from broadcasting on the radio. When Father Coughlin sent out newsletters to his followers, FDR told him he couldn't use the U.S. Mail to distribute them! FATHER COUGHLIN HISTORY These tactics are deplorable and part of the democratic socialist agenda of our current government. We need to be vigilant in stopping this blatant suppression of our Free Press!

Another Shocking News item: U.S. Bridges and Roads are being built by Chinese Firms! Contracts totaling nearly $9 Billion Dollars! This subverts the "Buy American Laws" that are in place to prevent this. ABC News aired this story. CHINESE FIRMS TAKE 3000+ US JOBS This a short Video You will want to see!

Ironically, many Billions of Dollars designated for infrastructure in ARRA(American Recovery and Reinvestment Act), have been sent to foreign governments! You may have heard about the 1/2 Billion Dollar ARRA money awarded to Fisker, an Automaker in Finland, to develop a PHEV Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicle. CLICK FOR INFO This is yet another example of how Obama is Outsourcing our Nation!

Erase the Debt Amendment

http://erasethedebt.idea.informer.com/ We just started a new site to propose an Amendment to the Constitution. The site that is hosting it was created by Lawrence Lessig, friend of Obama, who is disillusioned with the current administration. He is a Professor and Activist that wants to end the corruption in Washington. We think that an Amendment to Erase the Debt would have the power to tackle the underlying web of corruption that is imbedded in our US budget and operating expenses. The core problems with our Nation's economy cannot be addressed until we get ahead of the tremendous interest obligations inherent in our debt.

Americans Elect - David Jon Sponheim For President

The two-party system is corrupt. The American people want a chance to BE HEARD. No one can be heard in this corrupt two-party system. Any attempt to change this corrupt, heavily controlled system is a positive venture. Americans Elect (www.americanselect.org) has opened up an opportunity for average Americans to become involved in their government. Americans Elect offers an alternative to the two-party system. They are working to bring about a new form of direct representation for the American people.

For over three years, David Jon Sponheim has been running an independent grassroots campaign in America to build America's Third Party. He has been using every avenue possible to get exposure in the media. This effort has been completely independent of Americans Elect. David Jon Sponheim will be seizing the opportunity Americans Elect offers to raise awareness for his Presidential campaign.

The American people are seeking an honest candidate who is not bought off by the elite. They want someone who is an average American and can relate to them. Yet, at the same time, they want someone who is intelligent and can lead them out of the mire that our country has devolved into. David Jon Sponheim is the perfect Presidential candidate at this time for America.

David Jon Sponheim is a centrist, but not an elitist. He will stand up to the elitists that have taken down our nation in pursuit of personal profits. He has worked tirelessly for three years on the internet to reach out to thousands of people using social media networks.

It's time to fight against the powerless and alienation the American people are feeling. You can change this, simply by chatting directly with David Jon Sponheim every week night at 6pm Pacific at www.blogtv.com/people/americasthirdparty - Sponheim has already hosted over 950 shows on blogTV for at least 2 hours each night, interacting with the American people.

David Jon Sponheim is a centrist and can be a bridge between the Democrats and Republicans. He has a strong border policy and he wants to encourage the American people to invest in alternative energy through the creation of Renewable Energy Saving Bonds.

To put the American people back to work and on a path toward sustainability, Sponheim proposes a Homestead Renewal Plan where people can work fixing up houses they can live in at an affordable rate.

On social issues, David Jon Sponheim believes the government should stay out of the way, for the most part. He defers to state rights on the issue of gay marriage. You can read more about his stances at www.americasthirdparty.com/OnTheIssues

No one from Americans Elect has tried to draft David Jon Sponheim for President, yet they will offer the opportunity for any American to Draft a Candidate of their choice. Therefore, Sarah Hart will be starting a Draft Committee on Americans Elect for David Jon Sponheim as soon as they go live with their Candidate Section.

The reason Sarah Hart will start this draft committee is because Americans Elect offers the potential for ballot access in all 50 states. The way that ballot access rules are written make it extremely difficult for third party and independent Presidential candidates to get on the ballot. Ballot access is the only "gift" Americans Elect will give to a Presidential Candidate.

Why is Americans Elect attempting to gain ballot access in all 50 states? They want to a create a new form of direct representation for the American people. The very name "Americans Elect" says what this organization is about- Having the Americans elect the Presidential candidate, rather than limiting the primary to people who are involved in a particular party. Instead of powerful elitists attending and controlling the convention (as is often the case with Democrats and Republicans), ANY U.S. registered voter can become a delegate and vote in the online primaries and ONLINE National Convention for Americans Elect. To become a delegate, you simply have to sign up to their website, www.americanselect.org and then SUPPORT the Candidates you like (once this goes out of Beta Stage). Then, vote in early April in a round of voting that will shorten the field of candidates to the top 6 contenders. Then vote again this summer to choose who will be the Americans Elect Presidential candidate.

Americans Elect is a 501c4, a nonprofit organization that can affect political change but cannot endorse or support any particular candidate. They are attempting to bring the primaries into the 21st century by using technology- introducing an Online Convention into the process. In addition, they want to incorporate the entire American electorate. Finally, they want to encourage politicians to work together by requiring the Presidential candidate to choose a running mate who differs from themselves politically.

Americans Elect is not a Third Party in the traditional sense. They do not have a platform that candidates and members must classify themselves into. The Candidates themselves will reveal where they stand on these issues. Then, the American people will choose the candidate that they feel will best serve the needs of the American people. I personally hope they choose David Jon Sponheim.

David Jon Sponheim For President

DAVID JON SPONHEIM
FOR PRESIDENT 2012!

I have many new ideas for building jobs, creating more production, and solving housing and health care problems in simple ways. I am a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. I am free of corporate influence. I am not influenced by moneyed interests. I am the unbuyable candidate! My goals for this country focus on simplifying the role the federal government plays in our individual lives. I will create a program within HUD to save foreclosed houses and provide jobs to all Americans that need one. We call it the Homestead Renewal Plan; making the dream of home ownership a reality for more Americans! I envision tax reform which will eliminate tax loopholes completely. This will begin to reform the way influence peddling and lobbying is eroding our tax base. Every department, from Education to Energy will be analyzed for waste, redundancy, corruption and efficiency. Forensic auditors will be hired for the GAO (Government Accounting Office) to downsize budgets, starting with the GAO!

These auditors will establish specialties in areas like Medicare/Medicaid fraud, military/industrial contract procurement, and social security allocations. They will red tag any major cost overruns. These recommendations will be sent to Congress for review. Also, I will tell Congress that I will not sign any Bill over 100 Pages. This will set a precedent for smaller Bills that are not loaded with pork barrel spending. All of this will simplify the way our Nation works. For Instance, budgets for the Department of Homeland Security will be reduced to eliminate unnecessary services. The TSA will no longer be needed. They can be replaced with plain clothes military personnel. The Rapid Scan devices, which have been causing numerous complaints, will be used on luggage instead. Currently only 15% of all U.S. cargo is screened.

As President, I will begin to lower the many restrictions on small business in America. It is estimated that 60% of new job growth can come from small businesses. I will set up a Micro Loan program that will offer $1,000 to any U.S. Citizen. When they pay it back, anytime within 6 months, with $40 interest, they can get another $1,000. This will simplify the business growth process with fewer pre-qualifications. If someone defaults on their loan, they will never get anymore loans. The overall cost is $250 Billion for this program. The funding is there in the current TARP allowance to do this. Meanwhile, I will work with Congress to End the Federal Reserve. In 2013, we can buy out the Fed for $1 Billion, as stated in the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. We can retire their charter and liquidate their properties. The revenue we receive will help to build cash reserves for the Treasury. I will work with Congress to erase the debt. The United States of America will retain its sovereignty and we will begin the process of finalizing the bankruptcy of the United States “corporation”. Since the Necessity Act was signed in 1933, the United States has been in bankruptcy. Once the restructuring of the debt is managed, our Nation will set new policies of accountability and will not engage in fractional reserve banking. The solvency of our Nation’s economy will emerge and we will prosper for hundreds of years to come.

The environment will be another major focus of my administration. Fresh water solutions and solar panel production will be a high priority. I will introduce innovations in clean green technology as well. Efforts to cleanup superfund cleanup sites will be underway. I envision a Harbor dredged around New Orleans. In it, we would filter the water coming in, to trap any oil deposits. Modernized fisheries and shrimp production will revitalize the local economy. Real estate value will increase and an International Port will add to trade for the Southeast. I would also like to spearhead a program to get the government involved in Auto Production. The government share of GM is 31%. We can use this to build a single model 4 passenger PHEV (Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicle). We can keep the cost at under $15,000, with a lease/option to buy plan. Along with more domestic oil production and the creation of an IFR (Integral Fast Reactor) to get rid of spent nuclear fuel rods, the U.S. could become energy independent within 5 years!

The health care problem in America is also of great importance to me. I have crafted a by pass solution to our crisis. The MMU (Mobile Medical Unit) System can deploy 200 Semi Truck Units in 200 Cities across the Nation. They can triage patients, charging a small Co-Pay of $25 per visit. Every Unit will have an on board pharmacy and electronic telemedicine capabilities. I will develop this System with existing VA funding and merge it with VA outreach programs. I will push for a National Opt-In Health Care Insurance Plan. This type of public option will NOT be mandatory.

Finally, I will repeal Marijuana from the list of controlled substances. It has been ratified for medicinal use in 16 States and therefore does not belong on the list. This will open up a tremendous opportunity for State and Federal tax revenue on its sale. Also, the Hemp industry can flourish in the U.S. and hempoline/ bio-diesel will be integrated into the diesel supply, thus lowering costs for truckers nationwide! I believe agriculture output can increase in America as well. Our production output has declined 2% every year since 2008. I will develop a National Composting Plan to utilize food waste from restaurants and markets. Currently, nearly 50% of our food is thrown away in landfills. With regional centers for composting, farmers can build up their soil for less money. This will make our soil healthier and drought resistance. Yield will increase and we can lower our trade imbalance with other Nations.

In all, under my leadership, we will see a sustainable economy emerge in America. The costs of social services will be lowered when the government makes a return on investment. Cleaner air and electric transportation solutions will abound. The average American will have shorter work weeks, less taxes and more time with their family. Education will focus on real world skills, online learning modules and kits, while reducing testing. The framework for all of this is a transparent and communicative President.

 

 

Welcome to the Party!- November 2011 Newsletter

Welcome to the Party!

We recently had our 900th Show on BlogTV and were well received by hundreds of viewers! ATP is now ready to form the Centrist Movement America has been waiting for. As a former Democrat of 30 years, I am fed up with the "Tax and Spend" mentality of those on the left. I want social reforms that give people a low cost education, fair priced health care, with affordable housing to anyone who needs it. But, our Nation is spending twice what it earns! So, we have to cut spending in a huge way. The two party system is ineffective at doing this. The moneyed interests of elitists have padded the pockets of our millionaire legislators. We average Americans are bearing the brunt of their incompetence. Just like in Greece and Spain, we are now facing bankruptcy in up to 47 States! As your President, I will strategically cut the waste out of government spending and find the fraud in the system. We will eliminate 50% of the government jobs that are seemingly useless. I will personally take a 25% Pay Cut in 2013, to set the pace for all government employees to do the same.

This IS the real deal! If we do not proceed now with a Third Party, the powerful elitists will completely eliminate our ability to choose. If we WIN THE ELECTION WITH AS LOW AS 34% OF THE VOTE, we can pursue New Innovative paths for our Nation. We can GET OUT OF THE WARS! We can create the MILLIONS OF JOBS NEEDED! With the current 2 Parties there is little accountability or monitoring of corruption. ATP is currently developing bylaws that prevent our nominees from offering favors in return for donations. This practice by the 2 major parties has left our Nation with far too many tax loopholes and tax breaks for the rich! Our 10% FAIR/FLAT tax will only tax 10% on non-food sales up to $10,000. And 10% on income over $100,000. If you make less than $100.000 per year, you will pay NO INCOME TAX! This FLAT TAX will get much more revenue from Corporations that are currently paying little or no tax at all!

So, welcome to the best thing going in American politics today. Welcome to our future. We have a 50 Year vision for the Nation that will offer everyone a home and low cost utilities. Internet Access will be guaranteed and our Nation will operate efficiently! As your President I will begin the process of getting America back on track toward a sustainable future. If you are not yet concerned about the course we are on with the 2 Party system, I urge you to watch my weekly Countdown to Economic Collapse on YouTube at www.youtube.com/americasthirdparty.You will soon realize that EVERYDAY AMERICANS HAVE NO VOICE IN WASHINGTON!
THAT IS WHY WE NEED AMERICA'S THIRD PARTY!!

We Need Your Support

You can look at the donations we received since we started the campaign through the paperwork we filed with the FEC.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Alan Hyman (aka repub), who recently donated almost $50. If you donate less than $50, I do not need to disclose your address to the FEC. Also, I want to thank John Edwards (aka SymbolicCenter) who has recently donated nearly $300! This is our biggest donation this year and the perfect way to start out the 2012 election season. We could never have imagined growing this big without the help of extraordinary, everyday citizens like you.

If you haven't given yet, now is the perfect time. Make a donation and get in on the groundfloor to build this campaign.

America's Third Party is a real testament to the power of what people can do when they build a movement the old-fashioned way, person by person, with everyone chipping in what they can, when they can.

We're going to have some impact over the next year as we keep building the infrastructure for our party. There's a lot more work to be done. We need your support to put us in the strongest possible position that will help us win.

Chip in today -- then watch with as we hit record fundraising numbers!
