8Candidate Impressions Obama & RomneyRon Paul & Dennis KucinichRocky AndersonGary Johnson & Buddy RoemerJill Stein & Cynthia McKinneyVirgil Goode (Constitution Party)
9Electoral Crime TodayThere are EIGHT validated national parties: Constitution, Democratic, Green, Libertarian, Natural Law, Reform, Republican, SocialistCongress can mandate that all federal elections include all eight parties on the ballotCongress can mandate that all debates for federal elections include candidates from all eight parties
10Two-Party TyrannyNine times Congress has been asked to pass electoral reform opening ballots to all partiesAt the State level, the two parties conspire to exclude the other six parties while cheating the non-incumbent party with electoral fraudGetting money out will not fix the problem—we need across the board electoral reform
12Electoral Reform Possible Occupy listened & then lost itConsensus Electoral Reform Act of 2012 existsThese are the elements:01 Process (Integrity) 06 Cabinet Named02 Ballot Access (Same) 07 Open Registration03 People Vote, Not States 08 Tightly-Drawn Districts04 Put All Initiatives to Vote 09 Public Funding ONLY05 Open Debates All Levels 10 Open Legislation
13Bottom LineWe can still hold a national electoral reform summit in September and DEMAND the passage of the Electoral Reform Act of 2012We can still form a people’s candidacy with a coalition cabinet and go for $1 billion.We can still occupy the home offices of every Senator and Representative and force the issue of electoral reform in time for 2012.

15Part 2: Battle for the Soul of the Republic Top Secret America is a benchmark book“Top Secret America” is an Administrative Law state, an inverted democracy, a totalitarian attempt to micro-manage everything from agriculture to water (the latter now under military control according to the latest national security decision memorandum). The “complexes” range across every functional area from Agriculture through Defense, Education, Energy, Health, to WaterThe reason Congress strives to micro-manage is clear: this is how they extort money, using micro-management to frame earmarks and exemptions.
16Integrity Lost Integrity has been lost – government is hollow Cabinet does not represent the public – Secretaries represent the recipients of taxpayer dollars, not those paying the taxes.Congress is totally corrupt – discounts Treasury by 95% to secure a standard 5% kick-backFraud waste and abuse are documented – 47% in Agriculture, 50% in Health, perhaps $75% in Defense
17Secession, Nullification, and/or a Second Republic All three branches of the federal government are completely corrupt – do not represent WeTime to abolish the existing “government” controlled by the two-party tyranny of treasonStates should threaten secession and demand a Constitutional Convention…but first we have to cleanse each STATE of its local two-party tyrannyWe need to rebuild the USA from the bottom-up, at Human Scale, with integral resilience, which is to say, true deep independence from any external authority.
18Bottom Line We’re not as stuck as we might think. America the Beautiful is rich beyond measure.We’ve simply let common crooks take over Congress, destroy democracy, and shake-down the financial and corporate communitiesThere is NOTHING we cannot fix, and fix quick, if we restore integrity to the electoral process and thence to the government.
