Opening Statement

Preface from The Overdue Voter Revolution, a pamphlet written by RICH STEVENSON

A Biographical Preface—Why This Pamphlet?

"These are my own conclusions on the state of our political system as it appears to me at present. My overall conclusion after eighteen years of study is that we have a corrupt political system, which can be fixed by an informed electorate within a few years.

In the winter after the 1996 elections, in which political reforms made no apparent gains, I wrote a two-page synopsis on what I thought was wrong. In the years since I have constantly revised my written evaluation, pausing to publish, by copier, fifteen 100-copy versions of this pamphlet. Copies have gone to members of congress, minor party leaders, friends, and family. I imagine my words have seeped through and added to minor party political discourse, especially in the Reform Party where I had long been active.

My concern is our ineffective democratic republic. Why does it not work? Problems persist through generations of career politicians. Explanations from numerous and varied sources have all seemed insufficient. Reasonable demands of our citizens for change have not been met.

I imagine the reluctance to use available solutions is due directly to excessive human greed. Our monopoly "two-party system" is bought with huge political contributions. In exchange, the two parties keep power in the hands of a tiny wealthy elite. Elections are staged to divert attention from the underlying bipartisan struggle for power. Voters are left out. "Liberal" and "conservative" name-calling is used to divide the electorate. Also, selected controversial issues are used to divide voters into hostile voting blocks to win elections without a need to make good public policy decisions.

Many problems remain unresolved after decades of neglect. The same problems remain that have been the basis of all the false promises made by generations of career politicians. If you feel isolated and devalued by government, you have been correct for many years. Something is wrong.

On the positive side, enough voters going to the polls would have the power to make all the changes needed to solve persistent problems. Already 60% to 80% of our people know there are many problems not being addressed by the "two-party" monopoly. Now, we need to have 60% to 80% go to the polls and elect nonpartisan candidates who will represent people, not corporations, unions, political parties, or any other special interest.

We need to elect people who will open politics to the competition of ideas on issues and open debate on workable solutions. With only 10% of elected offices occupied by middle-of-the-road nonpartisan independent or minor party candidates, needed reforms will become possible.

A Constitutional Amendment can create a sustainable society based upon "democratic" small "r" republican ideals. For instance, an amendment is needed to establish the public policy that "money is not political speech." The same is true to establish the public policy that "corporations are not people" entitled to the benefits of the bill of rights and to equal protection under the U.S. Constitution. We have a need to correct the late-1800s errors of the Supreme Court, which eroded and decreased the sovereign rights of every American citizen. Corporations are not citizens, neither good nor bad. (MOVE TO AMEND THE U.S. CONSTITUTION)

With our constitution we forever removed the divine right of Kings from our lives and left that autocratic tyranny in the Old World. We accurately located divine rights in the hearts and minds of our people, with protections in our Bill of Rights for freedom of religion and of speech.

In our time we need to dispose of the autocratic tyranny of corporations linked with bipartisan two-party politics. Our unarmed revolution will occur by winning ballot access for our nonpartisan independent voter majority. Our voters can then elect actual representatives for our people. The principle  of citizens as sovereign can then become public policy in our everyday lives. In our time political sovereignty can be located in the hearts and minds of our people." (Revised January 2014 to prepare for publication.)

-----------------------------------------------

To preserve freedom and our democratic republic we must elect new people to public office, as often as possible, and with as many newly elected private citizens as possible.

Elect "Rich." You win. We all win. Rich is on your ballot for KY District Three Representative to the U.S. Congress on November 06, 2018. You must be proactive in this election campaign to have your voice heard in the U.S. Congress.

 

Elect nonpartisan independent candidates on your ballot. We all win if you apply term limits in the voting booth to all Incumbent public office holders. Career politicians do harm to our dreams of freedom and a democratic republic. As the years pass, incumbent politicians serve only their political party and other special interests that support their personal political ambitions.
