ūüĆ≥¬†OUR STRONGER VOTE ACT

Cleisthenes is considered democratist originator of the Grecian state, an ardent reformer with a strategic eye for refinement of democratic rule.  In the United States, we must pass Our Stronger Vote Act to alter our failed election process by activating:

  • Voting starts at twelve years old
  • States‚Äô nonpartisan redistricting commissions, proportionally comprised of Anglyc demographers, linguistic dialecticians, and land surveyors, all nonpartisans, representative from three (3) to five (5) even geographic areas in each state; tasked, with their expertise;¬†for drawing globular, cohesive congressional and statehouse districts, mindful of publicates but¬†not of populaces
  • Retuning “political action committees” as “policy committies;” courts can rule when something is not policy (not for the public betterment)
  • Banning super political action committees,¬†known as¬†Super PACs
  • Initiation of a country-wide profile archive of all candidates, candidate committies, and policy committies, with hyperlinks
  • Mandating all candidate expenses be through the candidate committy
  • Capping the financial amount each candidate committy is allowed to take in based on which office the candidate seeks
  • Universal Voter Registration with Compulsory Vote
  • Candidates listed in the ballot order they submit, and are approved of, their ballot signature requirements
  • Banning candidates from¬†pursuing more than one public elected office during each election cycle
  • Regulating the salaries and wage ranges¬†which candidate committies pay staff
  • Legitimating the three (3)¬†final national office candidates and two final state and local office candidates each as “electionominy”
  • Nonpartisan, open, ranked choice, trifecta runoffs for¬†main electionominies
  • The open solitary trifecta¬†runoff will¬†determine three (3) final¬†main election candidates per national office and two (2) final¬†main election candidates per state office
  • Ranked choice voting for three (3) candidates per¬†unitary office and two (2) candidates per state office in the¬†runoff¬†election
  • Ballots will be uniform, nonpartisan, and recycled non-tree paper
  • No live audiences will be permitted at mandatory presidential, vice presidential, gubernatorial, and senatorial finalist meetings on the content of their proposals in a conversant manner
  • The electionominies will be listed on the main election ballot side-by-side in order by least runoff votes, and presidential election ballots¬†will feature¬†each presidential¬†candidate’s cropped face and shoulder image in color beneath their names
  • A yearly seven-day Election Week for both the runoff and main elections, fourteen (14) days altogether; working citizens will have the week off from performing work to participate fully in the week-long activities and ballot voting
  • Voters may mail-in ballots, or drop them off at voter stations themselves
  • Random ordering of general election candidates on ballots
  • Direct election of the Vice President to preside over the U.S. Senate
  • Rejoyment and standard of the Electoral College
  • Direct election of States’ Lieutenant Governors to preside over State Senates
  • No exit polls will be released until all ballots have been officially counted, and it will be a federal crime for states‚Äô elections officials to announce the wrong winner
  • National outline for¬†diminutive publicate (municipal, township) offices,¬†ordinancial publicate (county) offices, and¬†up to¬†five¬†even state¬†provincial¬†assembly areas, and jurisdict tasks
  • The three County Commissioners must be from different municipalities or townships of their county, with one from the biggest municipality; Commissioners are deputized to go to Provincial Assembly.¬† A separate deputy may be elected by Reeves; a Reeve comes from each municipality or township in a county, as the county council
  • Allows municipal publicates (cities, towns, villages) and ordinancial publicates (counties) to make policy stands supportive of their revenue and name main electionominies in publicate communications
  • Legislating any nominee for appointment to the federal, state, or local courts is never affiliated with a political or juratical party, and will be removed from office if such affiliation such as speaking engagement occurs
  • Ban on:¬† Professional associations tasked with determining practice in publicatures and publicate institutions such as courts; the representation of political parties; formal unitary, state, and local caucuses; shared communication and solicited funds between candidates; factions of officeholders; multicandidate tickets; voter slates with multiple candidates, but allows single¬†electionominy and ballot issue slates being dispensed; and coordination between candidate committies, as well as between candidate committies and policy committies
  • Limiting the formation of committies, which block the spread of good ideas,¬†at the¬†Congress
  • Forbidding the use of public finances for candidate committies separate from official emoluments and awards, and forbids all public finances including official emoluments and awards to be given to all types of policy committies
  • Prohibiting candidate person-specific activity of all types of policy committies, thus directing all such activity to candidate committies for accountability
  • Allows public school institutions to make policy stands and name main electionominies in communications
  • Allows nonprofit¬†companies to name main electionominies in communications
  • Bans for-profit companies from giving money¬†and free or discounted¬†resources to candidate committies or policy committees, and bans¬†such companies¬†from making public communications about candidates
  • Bans the making of for-profit companies to function as candidate or policy committies, and distinguishes candidate and policy committies from other nonprofit companies
  • Increases individual personal contribution amounts to $15,000.00 to candidate committies and all types of policy committies per giver per presidential election cycle and $10,000 per midterm election cycle; restricts giver eligibility¬†to those in the relevant state and district; imposes strict ban so no giver may gift money to another¬†person¬†who gives on their behalf for any election cycle; and limits total of said amount no matter number of recipient committies
  • Every candidate will be sent a copy of Our Stronger Vote Act upon establishing their committy

ūüĆ≥¬†UNITED SCHOOLS

Public education is the foremost civil rights calling today.  There is more congressional legislation must do to help students learn across our nation.  I will work for the unification of all non-charter public preschool-through-Grade 12 districts, colleges, and universities as United Schools (i.e. U.S. West Clermont, U.S. East Hamilton).

U.S. unification will make it easier for collaborative learning, family relocations, educator placement, credit transfers, district upgrades with increased focus on civics, universal post-secondary admission, and national college lending for U.S. students.  This will include college debt absolution after 10 years from Graduation Day.

I will further empower students by mandating:  the election of student members proportionally to non-students on public university boards and all board members’ duty to vote while on the board.

ūüĆ≥¬†DENUCLEAR ENERGY

I will vote for banning nuclear energy.

ūüĆ≥¬†SIMPLIFIED NATIONAL OFFICES

We must simplify executive offices in and beneath our Cabinet.
