reaching our full potential ... as individuals and as a nation

You probably do not know me . . . yet. I am not famous, wealthy or powerful, nor have I been involved in politics much more than the typical citizen. So why should I presume that this nation should elect me President?

I am not presuming anything . . . I know that the deck is heavily stacked against me.

However, I have seen too much that is good be discarded or ignored, because either the ideas or the messenger were politically unpalatable to the powerful. I can no longer stand idle while this happens . . . and I believe that one man, with the help of God, can make a difference if he endeavors to do so.

In fact, I believe that "we the people" have been standing idle for far too long when it comes to the operation of our government. Instead of applying the abilities of our millions of intelligent citizens to the problems we face, we have established a "rent-a-government" of professionals to "handle" those problems for us. Unfortunately, the active participants in this government appear to be more concerned with keeping their positions than with serving the people and solving the problems (as if they could!). In my opinion, our most stubborn problems will not be solved until ordinary citizens get involved. I believe that the time has come for government to work WITH the people, not just "FOR" the people!

My intent in this campaign is to be an effective messenger for some good ideas, staying free of some (if not all) of the political stereotypes that have poisoned American government. If I can get elected to implement some of these ideas, so much the better -- and make no mistake, I am actively working for that outcome.

I ask that you review the contents of this website for yourself, and see if my ideas are sound. Use the link list in the blue area of this page to find out:

  • Who I am. . .
  • The core principles that drive my campaign . . .
  • My agenda (use this for quick access to my positions, issue-by-issue) . . .
  • The "buzzwords" that represent some of my "unique" ideas . . .
  • and a few good websites that will "feed your brain".
In particular, check out my responses (and those of other candidates) to the voters' queries and the issues of our day at the "Election 2000/A Wider Field" message board at cnn.com.   and see what I (and others) have to say, and/or present YOUR questions to the candidates through the "Query the Candidates" feature there.

Finally, if you find merit in some (or all) of what I am saying, please click on and see how you can make my cause OUR cause. To win election, I need more than your intent to vote for me -- I need your ACTIVE involvement in spreading my name, website address, ideas, and agenda to those around you. And, if you want to borrow some of the good ideas for your own political agendas, please do so.
