INDEX




“Confusion, chaos happens when the old is no

longer true and the new is not yet defined.”

-Osho



FORWARD


Hopefully by President Barack Obama or Sen. Bernie Sanders


                     “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember,

                   you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion

                  to reach for the stars to change the world.

                                                                        -Harriet Tubman


            No idea is so outlandish that it should not be considered with

                       a searching but at the same time a steady eye.”

                                                   - Sir Winston Churchill                

PREFACE


“No State is possible without two entities (the rulers and  the ruled). You are our sovereign, our Government, only so long as we consider ourselves your subjects. When we are not subjects, you are not the sovereign either... So long as it is your endeavor to control us with justice and love, we will let you do so. But if you wish to strike at us from behind, we cannot permit it. Whatever you do in other matters, you will have to ask our opinion about the laws that concern us. If you make laws to keep us suppressed in a wrongful manner and without taking us into confidence, these laws will merely adorn the statute-books. We will never obey them. So long as there is yet life in these our bones, we will never comply with your arbitrary laws.”

       -Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi, July 27, 1916, from “On Civil Disobedience,” this method is satyagraha, the Hindi word for Nonviolent Civil Disobedience.



INTRODUCTION 


          “ Sometimes, in the course of history, the actions of ordinary citizens spark

             movements for change, because they speak to a longing for freedom that

             has built up for years.”............“Cell phones and social networks allow

             young people to connect and organize like never before. A new generation

            has emerged. And their voices tell us that change cannot be denied.”

                                                               -President Barack Obama,

             U.S. Department of state. Text from abridged speech on the Middle East.

As prepared for Delivery  - in response to Arab Spring - May 11, 2011

    

  Example: The unjust killing of an American citizen, George Floyd, when captured on an eight minute cell phone video that went viral, created the globally successful, most integrated marches in support of the Black Lives Matter movement that any of us has ever experienced, 2020-21. Which was directly responsible for putting America’s first black woman, Kamala Harris, into the Vice Presidency, in 2021.


  So We, the working class people, the True Majority, have all now witnessed, first hand, the incredible power of the people in 21st Century high tech USA, when the masses have honestly been informed.  The problem is how do we inform or educate the majority of Americans when misinformation media campaigns - like FOX so-called News - designed to manipulate and control the masses, are still running rampant, still legally allowed, because of the illicit law making of our law-faking, law-breaking, lawmakers in Congress? The ones who create and continue to allow this unconstitutional injustice to prevail for their own personal gains. And all at a huge cost to the American people and the world at large, while jeopardizing the very survival of our American democracy for generations to come.


               “Calling for a political revolution, (Senator Bernie) Sanders

                 argued that ‘no matter who is elected president, that person

                 will not be able to address the enormous problems facing the

                 working families of our country.’ Instead, grassroots movements

                 are needed to change the focus on the national discussion.”

                                             -Rolling Stone Magazine, 2016


For the first time in Our’merican history, every voice can finally be heard - directly, and every vote legitimately counted and individually tracked, with no need for any of us to be mis-represented by the political spokesmen puppets of the few mega wealthy puppet-masters - AKA the filthy rich, who pull all the strings on all our lawmakers, via bribery and bullying - threats of violence and/or political ruination.


Learn how We can - and will soon - divorce lawmaking from politics, to create an Honestly Applied Democracy in Our’merica for the first time in 246 years:      

    

Seven Musts for an Honestly Applied Democracy in 21st Century USA:


1) Legally Responsible Journalism - #1 Prerequisite

2) (Ashi’s) 21st Century Voting (System) - 21CV. #2. Prerequisite

3) Individualism - No more divisive two-party system of party before country politics.

4) Our Council - of five presidents (+ 5 VPs) to replace the single person presidency.

5) Elected, not partisan selected for life, Supreme Court justices.

6) Criminal justice reform.

7) Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Marijuana, and gun control reform.


CHAPTER 1 

Legally Responsible Journalism - During this dangerous age of massive social media communication, misinformation is the worst enemy of truth and our democracy. It is also detrimental to the health of the America people during the COVID19 pandemic. Therefore, honesty in journalism must become law. Become the law via a Constitutional amendment to our “Freedom of the press,” to protect our democracy and health, and curtail mass shootings - via Ashi’s John Doe Shooter Law, to protect the innocent from mass shooters encouraged by the elaborate national attention given to them by our irresponsible media. “Don’t give‘their’ name and STOP offering them fame!” -Ashi


CHAPTER 2

21st Century Voting System - 21CV. Your Social Security number is your automatic voter registration number. Totally transparent process, fully accountable, and individually trackable. Dual paper trail in only two locations, one federal and one state, not at 150,000 polls. Plus an online E-Vote trail for additional checks and balances. Popular Vote for Democracy; no more undemocratic, antiquated, and easily rigged Electoral College, or elitist party delegates to misrepresent the needs and wants of The People any longer. Creates online free (truth based) campaigning, financed by the billions of dollars we save from all those antiquated voting machines and obsolete polling places. No more buy-in billionaire puppet-master lawmakers, via their lackey law-fakers in Congress. 


CHAPTER 3 

Individualism. No more divisive two-party system, which Alexander Hamilton and others of his time warned us about. All elected lawmakers finally get to stand on their own attributes and principles; no longer having to kowtow to partisan party pressure. No more lobbying - AKA legalized bribery – to make illicit laws to benefit the 1% wealthiest amongst us at the expense of the 99% working class - We, who have earned that wealth with our blood, sweat, and tears. Maximum of six years in office for all members of Congress.


CHAPTER 4                 

Our–Council of Five presidents, with five Co-Council VPs, to replace the single-person presidency and vice presidency. Allows all Americans to feel represented during every administration by allowing a balance of age, gender, race, religion, and sexual orientation; to represent most of the people most of the time, as compared to only half of the people feeling represented during most administrations up to today. With each of the ten to head up a specific role - department - in our governance.


CHAPTER 5 

Elected ‘Term’ Supreme Court Justices. No politically partisan appointed judges to tilt the court with lifetime appointments. Elected by the people for four year terms. No Supreme Court Justice campaigning allowed; all elected and reelected strictly from their online records of service to America and personal perspectives. Can be reelected indefinitely, if they serve The people well.

        

CHAPTER 6  

Criminal Justice Reform. Equal rights for all Americans. No statute of limitations on any crime. All punishment must fit the crime, so no more big money pay offs to prevent prosecution. No more jail for victimless crimes; everyone in jail for marijuana offenses will be immediately released and their records cleared of career inhibiting criminal records - with the legalization of Marijuana going national to prevent racist oriented states from using pot as a way to incarcerate black people; to ruin their lives with unjust criminal records, while illegally denying them their right-to-vote. No more unAmerican loss of right-to-vote for anyone except those found guilty of treason. Eliminate right to have or sell assault riffles and other unneeded arms in 21st Century USA by amending the antiquated (now unnecessarily barbaric) Second Amendment - The right to bear arms - to adhere to the needs of our contemporary world and the wishes of The Majority of Americans over the NRA’s buy-in law-fakers.


CHAPTER 7         

Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Marijuana reform, to allow for honest cost of living increases during these inflationary times, to help those in need; while not giving Social Security and Medicare to those who are financially well off enough not to need these safety nets designed to help those in need. Drug price control, with legalized medicinal marijuana made available to all ailing veterans and patients in every state.


CHAPTER 8

What We the People can now do about US.  AmRes’24 on the 2024 ballot. How We nonviolently go from our present unjust and inhumane governance to an Honestly Applied Democracy - and in lightning speed, because of this miraculous high tech age that we’ve only recently evolved into. When combined with the higher level of consciousness today, We, the Working Class People, the True Majority, can nonviolently change the course of our history - more consciously, and compassionately, than ever before. 


If these three loving heroes could move millions of people to change unjust laws without using violent means or having the incredible advantages of social media, then Imagine, as John Ono Lennon would say, what We can now do to transform Our’merica – with social media, viral emails, streamed movies, and songs, allowing it to happen in lightning speed.


“Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty

when the state becomes lawless and corrupt.”

-Mahatma Gandhi


“Faith is taking the first step,

even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”

-Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


     “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

-President Nelson Mandela


See 21st Century Voting (21CV page) for how exactly we do it -

without the support or permission from Congress - Our employees, NOT our bosses!
