I spent all week in Nevada talking with veterans, working to get on Presidential ballots, and starting to prepare for the January 28 Independent Presidential Debate in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
My travels in 2015 confirmed the power of my campaign platform: Fix Government and Build Peace. I see more clearly that adding up all those “fixes” means my White House must do no less than Transform Government and in that way we will Transform America
Building peace requires fixing government. Only 19% of Americans trust our government to do the right thing and 75% of Americans believe corruption in government is widespread. We have to restore trust at the same time we make decisions as one nation.
The spirit of America is strong; the state of our union is fragile. That is my conclusion after 100 days driving 14,128 miles through 34 states as an independent candidate for President of the United States.
I am honored to announce that Steve Sanson, President of Veterans in Politics International, has agreed to be the National Chair of my VP Search Committee. Steve’s commitment to our nation has been demonstrated through his service in the US Marine Corps
As we enjoy our holidays, let us reflect on our incarcerated and traumatized veterans and how We the American People may better understand the burdens of combat and the moral costs of warfare.
We the People are wiser than warfare. We must act on that wisdom as our nation and our shared planet confront the possibility of eternal warfare. Our choice instead is to embark on an Age of Peacebuilding
I recently published a comprehensive plan to transform the Department of Veterans Affairs so this deeply flawed agency may truly provide world-class services and a world-class delivery system of promised benefits.
This article summarizes the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs problems, recommends a powerful transformational approach, and ends with a “kick in the pants” action to jumpstart change.
My platform is Transform America by Transforming Government. I have a 7-track strategy to re-boot our agencies and build peace that begins by Cutting One Trillion Dollars of Waste.
