After years of seeing political corruption, special interests controlling the government, onerous taxes, an escalating cost of living, and a business climate which makes it impossible for the little guy to get ahead, I have recognized the need for a third party to have power in our government. With a two party system, it is too easy for the party in power to approve bad legislation.
Additionally, I am so frustrated that Chris Collins used his office to do insider trading that I have decided to run against him for the New York 27th Congressional district. If I win, I promise I will install a system that allows you, the voter, to have more power over me (see below).
First, I believe in term limits for all senators and congressmen. Let’s get the career politicians out.
Second, let’s figure out a way to ensure we always have three strong political parties. I think most of us would agree that we are tired of voting in presidential elections where we dislike both candidates.
Third, I am advocating for a website that will allow New York voters to see the legislation that our Congress will be voting on, comment on it and indicate their voting directive. I am advocating that if a super majority of residents want their representative to vote a certain way, that representative should be bound to follow their decision. This is a great way for us to take our power back from the politicians as they won't be able to have their votes influenced by donors and lobbyists. I am working with Gap Technologies, Inc. to have a beta version available of this concept completed by June that you can check it out. If you elect me I promise I will use this system and be bound by your decisions.
We are going to need a lot of volunteers and some cash to make these changes. If we all work together, we can do it.
