Did we just talk?  >>>Here are some pathways about what our conversation was about.  Thanks again for letting me hear your thoughts, good chance they will have an influence on this site, and anyone else we "bump into".


 2023 this site has begun a MAJOR EDITING & MAINTENANCE effort, it may not be completed until 06-15-23 Many errors will be likely until then.

It's been through a decade of tech changes, Maintaining it has never been a priority. It has become unavoidable at this point. Ugh...

Happenings Right Now

List of Organizations


Also, leading the way...  is the

American Anti-Corruption Act and the organization named below.


Wait at least 24 hours before donating, if at all.

Generally, they are GREAT about what they do, but are well funded, IMHO, think Retirement Fund, while it too is deserved, how important is that Today?

Thanks for coming to this site.  It is terrible... I know that.... take a web design 101 class, this would be an example of what NOT TO DO! 

Please keep in mind that this site was produced as I participated in The New Hampshire Rebellion - One Question Project and used only my Samsung Note 3 smartphone while  walking the route of the Rebellion. 

Nine years of a world without Aaron Swartz, yet his Spirit continues to change this world. Our world.

Arrogance? I think not. The New Hampshire  Rebellion flourishes still.  2016 New Hampshire Primary changed everything by giving focus and purpose to the anger, in a Powerful and Positive way. 

As evidence, I offer reporting of the 2016 Primary results and analysis.

Posted Feb 10, 2016

Only two candidates addressed the NHR Question. Thereby providing the basis for this reporting.

Bernie: ... But the rules have changed. Voters these days don’t care much about those kinds of political assets. They think Washington is dysfunctional because it is corrupt, and that it is corrupt because it has been captured by people who have turned the nation’s government into their own little sinecure nest. Sanders captured this sentiment when he said today’s political system is “not what democracy is about; it’s what oligarchy is about.”

Donald: ...in his New Hampshire victory speech, he said they really aren’t so stupid when they cut their political deals. “They make them,” he said, “for their own benefit, not for the country’s benefit.” Thus did he echo Bernie Sanders’s suggestion that the country’s political system seems to be veering toward oligarchy.

The New York businessman emphasized the significance of his self-funding campaign. The other candidates are pouring money into campaign commercials, he said, “but it’s not their money. It’s special-interest money.”

Who won New Hampshire? New Hampshire Rebellion, Bernie & Donald

Article is here... 

I continue today, using a  Note 3, Note 4, Note 9, and S22 - but my Agent Orange experience has made my ability to walk to be very limited in nature; consequently, I now continue the effort using a 2016 Ford Transit Stealth Camper Van to move across the country engaging in the same conversations I had during the New Hampshire Rebellion. The NHR is one of the projects that has given birth to the current Democracy Movement.  Why? How? Well, simply put, my personal experience is that I have NEVER been able to find even one person, within the spectrum of citizens within the boundaries of the farthest Right or Left, Conservative or Progressive, Wealthy or working person striving to get through the day working two or even three jobs attempting to make a living, that disagrees with our Founders idea of creating a "more perfect Union." within a democratic framework of this Democratic Republic which they gave birth to. 

Today, more than ever, CORRUPTION is nearly a USELESS WORD. Use it and watch any listener's eyes glaze over. Of course, by its nature, it is not a welcomed idea. But due to the melding of the technologies of 1776 and the 21st Century, now CORRUPTION HAS another NEW VOICE, Equal Citizens is one of the latest iterations of this REBIRTH of the Democracy Movement and is now repairing our corrupt system of electing our Representatives, Senators, and President, we have the tools never before available to take back our Republic using the democratic principles enshrined within the Constitution and continue to improve on it, as we did as the Amendments were added to it. There shall be a decision most likely around July 4th, 2020 announced by the Supreme Court of the United States which shall provide fundamental Constitutional clarity regarding the Electoral College. SCOTUS choose to address this issue on January 17, 2020, as it selected our issue from the pool of thousands of cases submitted to it to rule on in the 2020 session. 

Amendments are not needed to solve and correct what corruption has done to our system. Broken.... yes. Repairable... YES. What began with folks like Doris Haddock and Aaron Swartz, has turned into a bonafide Democracy Movement as evidenced by the number of Democracy Reforms in 2018-2019. Never in the history of the United States has so much actual change taking place within our legal and election systems in such short a time.  Momentum is overwhelming, in the work of unrigging the system, making the established power brokers IRRELEVANT. They are no incentives for them to make the needed changes. So, we, as equal citizens, are doing what we do best.... we are fixing it ourselves and it is happening beyond party lines, shoulder to shoulder, together we are taking back our vote from the lobbyists and special interests and have our elected officials REPRESENT US, not money.

The list goes on. Too many to list here but here are just a couple of them... Michigan enacted legislation that destroyed the old-style Gerrymandering System, via a campaign that started out as a simple Facebook Page and had the requirement of membership of being a person able to NOT use the word DEMOCRAT or REPUBLICAN, it recruited thousands of volunteers, and was absolutely successful in defeating the old style political strategy of Gerrymandering. There are eight million more folks able to cast their votes using the concept of Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) instead of choosing the lesser of two evils they had to use before. There, is the first time in history is a Congressperson served since 2016 due to RCB and a change in campaign financing.

The New Hampshire Rebellion project which I was one of the nineteen "through walkers", as reported in various New Hampshire media outlets, changed the landscape for the Presidential Election of 2016 and continues to this day to have corruption REPAIR Issue One.

The goal of the New Hampshire Rebellion was to make CORRUPTION a sustained issue and to have it be the major issue during that election cycle.  Today, we have President Trump. We nearly were able to actually vote for Bernie Sanders.  

From where I view the world, BOTH were considered JOKES when "they threw their hats into the ring".... THE WERE NOT THE JOKEs after the first primary in that election cycle of 2016.   IMHO,  the two jokes were no longer after the primary.  Why? From their own diametrically opposite sides of the spectrum, and in their own display of their unique characters, THEY ANSWERED THE QUESTION! The other candidates didn't..... they just did the "dance" of BS we all are accustomed to with candidates to high offices. The BIG $ of the Democratic Party sabotaged Bernie, so clearly so, that the Chairwoman of the Party had to resign over the issue.  The BIG $ of the Republican Party who poured all their money into "anybody BUT Trump also failed their status quo candidates.  Mr. Trump was the perfect storm. His own big $ - no committee of establishment Republicans needed; a savvy man whose understanding of mass media and reality tv, ie: The Apprentice; AND he had 12 million Twitter followers before the campaigning when even President Obama, the most famous man on the face of the earth - also a savvy social media type - had only 8 million Twitter followers; PLUS Mr. Trump, in his own special style "Answered the question" during the debates which the entire country now wanted to know -  " Drain the Swamp". The Princeton Study of 2014 said that 96% of this country thought of the electoral campaign process as "The Swamp" and HATED IT.

What was that question?   --- From Granny D to Aaron Swartz the question evolved to: 

""What specific reforms will you advance to end the corrupting influence of big money in politics?"

Now, at the time of this writing, April 2019, and from my perspective and experience, this movement has grown from maybe a few hundred folks to the millions category, with the organization called REPRESENT.US as what might be called the clearing house lead group, NOT BI-PARTISAN -  but POLY-PARTISAN and as of March 2019, expects to push towards the 11,000,000 mark of folks working towards the goals of Granny D and Aaron Swartz and taking back the Republic from the hands of Big $ and lobbyists.

Unfortunately, HR1 passed in the house a few weeks ago. Unfortunately--- because it was legislation sponsored by Big D democrats. There ARE very similar bills proposed by much more Conservative AND Progressive groups. Sadly, IMHO, because of the Big D sponsorship, it shall arrive in the Senate and die. The same thing would happen if the roles were reversed.  That's why the REPRESENT.US strategy is so wise.  Congress is irrelevant on this, what is working is from the bottom up, local to the state than the nation.

You probably got to this site because of meeting me on a sidewalk. That is why there is so much hope for me.  Aaron Swartz demonstrated how folks from the far extremes of the political spectrum can and do work together on THIS issue. It is NOT the people with radically different opinions and philosophies that are the problem, quite the contrary... it is the CORRUPTION of our system that IS THE PROBLEM.

Left, Right, Center there is a group of folks working for Campaign Finance Reform that probably aligns with your political perspective. Here's a list of groups which covers EVERY part of the spectrum. List of Organizations.

the Senate voted to save net neutrality!

Now we have to win in the House.

52-47 margin and huge momentum.

..at the last minute, TWO undecided senators swung our way.

It is a game changer....

June 11th, unless Congress stops them, the FCC is scheduled to end net neutrality.

Ton's of money on this, we will not see much change right away. Too many of us watching and it would provide more evidence of how bad it might get. The changes will be

rolled out very s l o w l y....

The strategy shall probably be very much tailored to have us one day just go... wow.... had did that actually happen?

Come on down and share some time with others who are also working towards putting the us back into US political system.  All around the country folks are gathering together to create change and Demanding Progress.

May 26th

Evolution.  Demanding Progress lessons. For Me a PTSD moment to Pack Square conversations with others questing for ....a more perfect Union.

From so many States, so many thoughts, and forward to glimpses of other's efforts toward same end.  Belief in the possible of now.  From one child's mind to millions of other's efforts in concert with each other knowing not exactly the spot of assembling but, assembling none-the-less and effective beyond the greatest of hopes.

Democracy Spring March & Rally in Raleigh

Democracy Spring North Carolina

call to action in Raleigh to bring folks from across the State to

join in with so many others from across the Nation to campaign

and make political corruption illegal. More....

Yup, hard to believe but much of it is actually quite legal and we can change that pretty easily.  It is not a fast project, but it is doable. To want Congress to REPRESENT US is a desire shared by the entire political spectrum , non-partisan in nature. Benjamin Franklin has been saying this, from Day One, as a participant in the Miracle in Philadelphia, knowing full well that from that day forth, "...in order to form a more perfect Union...." would require such things as this Rally in Raleigh.

Join In!

As of today over 1,400 folks have gone to jail demanding progress regarding Getting the Corrupting Influence of Big Money out of how we elect folks!

BTW  if you are one of the 4% of folks whom the Princeton Study said believes that is not to much money in politics, please find me on Capitol Hill today, I have not found anyone since I went to the Canadian Border January 11th, 2014 when many of us gathered to honor Aaron Swartz.  I want to hear the merits of your argument, REALLY!  I have been looking for you since the day count below.  Not one of you have I found!

Hey there!  Glad you stopped by and here is more information about what we probably talked about and what got you here in the first place.

Until April 19th, 2016 I am pretty much doing full time work with the Democracy Spring Campaign and planning on taking part in the largest non-violent civil-disobedience in a generation.
