Political Tools for Nonpartisans
The web page tools and concepts, under continuous development and currently functional, are free to nonpartisan political activists. Participate to support the transition to open nonpartisan politics. Free licensed tools for you to use:
Free Political Tools Software Mini-CD
Bottom Up Politics: Our computer desktops are the only IVA headquarters, with local Independent Voters Alliance (IVA) web pages managed and chaired by local participants in every voting precinct in every state. Our national goal will be over 500,000 Local IVAs controlled from the bottom-up in a more democratic republic! Each Local IVA Web Page Manager is a Leader in the Open Ballot Access Movement for Equal Political Speech. We are at home, from the bottom-up, in the only headquarters for our ballot access movement. We are home based. Your home. My home. We lead from the bottom up. (IVA) (IVA.zip Files)
Free Political Tools: The overall CS II goal is to replace the minority "bipartisan two-party political system" with a majority "nonpartisan political coalition" that governs in the interests of human constituents, people. I am the creator of the nonpartisan Free Tools CSII software. I am the lone writer and designer. I am one of many concerned citizens working to increase awareness of the electoral and political reforms needed to preserve our constitutional democratic republic. I work in cooperation with other proactive citizens building the open ballot access movement. Our common goal is to increase majority nonpartisan participation in our democratic republic for the 21st century.
Nonpartisan Independent Strategy: Development of web page tools for use by nonpartisan independents is an integral part of the overall strategy for making the nonpartisan political transition possible. Each software tool is packaged in a free Zipped template that can be easily modified and duplicated for local, nonpartisan use. The IVA and other political tools are designed to enable control from the bottom up by a majority of our people. All of the CSII software tools are gifts to the large numbers of politically inactive nonpartisan citizens in our republic. All worthwhile activities in life take substantial effort. Each participant in the open ballot access movement supplies the effort needed. We still have a democratic republic, if we can keep it. Freedom is participation in power.
Rich Stevenson, Moderate Nonpartisan Political Activist
The National IVA web pages, published only as a subset with Local IVA Web Pages, explain how the IVA is designed to facilitate the transformation of the American political system from a monopoly "bipartisan two-party political system" into a bottom-up open "nonpartisan political coalition." Ballot access will become easier in all fifty states. A State IVA coalition political party will be established on the ballot in every state where an IVA coalition of nonpartisans and minor parties would be more competitive against the bipartisan two-party monopoly. The goal is liberty and justice for all in a more democratic republic for all U.S. citizens.
Certify IVA Petition Circulators: The primary means to open ballot access to nonpartisan and minor party independents. Write lesson plans to certify ballot access petition circulators in IVA classes, High School Civics classes, and College Civics classes in every state. For example, the goal in Ohio alone is 100,000 IVA certified ballot access petition circulators, about nine in each voting precinct. Ballot access petition circulation is the civics lesson overlooked in our schools at every level. IVA certified petition circulators will be a civil army to gain open ballot access in each of the fifty states. Every ballot in every election throughout our republic will contain more nonpartisan and minor party candidates, more minor political parties, and more initiative-referendum issues to have more ballot choices. "Freedom is participation in power," said Cicero, a Roman Senator, 2000 years ago. Become an IVA certified ballot access petition circulator. Participate in political power.
Ballot access petition circulator training and making petition circulator field kits takes about one hour to complete. All inquiries are welcome. "If not you, who? If not now, when?" Join the IVA civil army. Join the open ballot access movement for equal political speech and electoral reform. Promote and practice Active Citizenship.
Educational materials are developed for Ohio. Forty-nine states need further development of educational materials!
Local IVA Web Page Managers: IVA web pages are templates that can be edited, launched and managed from the local level by each Local IVA web page manager in his/her area at no cost to the Local IVA manager. For example, the Local IVA model web pages, Independent Voters Alliance, Hamilton County, Ohio, are devoted to providing local ballot access for nonpartisan and minor party candidates, minor parties, and voter initiatives, totally cost-free. The IVA goal is free Local IVA web pages in every voting precinct in every state in our republic. For example, Ohio has 11,366 precincts (based upon the year 2000 U.S. Census population results). The IVA expects the bulk of IVA web page managers to be high school and college students who can apply their Internet skills to taking control of their political futures. The IVA provides a functional framework to establish Local IVA web pages where voters can effectively influence and participate in the future of politics. Cost-free Local IVA web pages are a unique bottom-up means to gain nonpartisan ballot access. Publish a Local IVA where you live.
Coalition participants can publish no-cost Local IVA web pages in their precinct, community, town, county, or other electoral district.

Independent Like You and Open Ballot Access and Equal Political Speech are political campaign slogans I would like to see used by all candidates who use the "model campaign" web pages. Not required. There is a nonpartisan 80% voter majority nearly everywhere. They are "nonpartisans" who do not actively support any political party. Less than half of age-eligible voters even bother to vote. Voters who choose to vote, usually vote for the person, not a political party. (Top of Page) (IVA.zip Files) (Bottom UP)

The Overdue Voter Revolution
A Nonpartisan Indictment of the DNC & RNC
An intentional mass movement, it seems to me, needs an intellectual basis, some jumping off place. A declaration, perhaps in a pamphlet, may be needed to get the ball rolling. If the "common sense" of this CSII pamphlet rings true to you, if it reflects your political reality, tell others, promote the message and reading of the pamphlet. The pamphlet was converted to an Adobe Acrobat file in Feb 2006, and is now a preview file on the Internet. The file (with internal navigation links) will be available for purchase as a Kindle eBook soon. The link will be shown here. Meanwhile preview the pamphlet before purchase. (Included for preview on the Free Tools CDs. See insert above). http://cs2pr.us/VotRevPamphlet.html. Read it! Review it! Share it! Pass it Forward! Buy the eBook.
Agreement on every detail in the pamphlet is not expected. Participate in the coalition for open ballot access for your reasons. Just do your part.
Common Sense II — Part II, The Brainwashed Citizen Awakes.
An unfinished pamphlet. Finish writing. Topics will include:
The ways in which the Judiciary and the legal system protects the DNC & RNC monopoly.
The use of the Media to brainwash our culture to maintain the bottom-line for special interests, media, business, labor, and political parties.
The lack of protection for individual and small business interests.
Voter Awareness: Educate people to reveal the lack of popular support for the monopoly bipartisan "two-party system." The substantial numerical advantage, about 80%, of age-eligible nonpartisan voters will gradually end bipartisan control of our political system. Our republic will become, more than in times past, the world's best hope for open ballot access and equal political speech. (IVA.zip Files) (Bottom UP)
Introduce and find acceptance for reform political concepts promoting a democratic republic and the pursuit of happiness for all of our people.
Promote web sites that increase awareness of the many solutions to our bipartisan political problems. Promote open ballot access. Promote civil harmony and cooperation to have a more democratic republic.
Use creative entrepreneurial free enterprise to stimulate growth and to solve the problems ignored by two corrupt bipartisan political parties.
