Government systems are antiquated, slow-moving, lack transparency and are rigged by the power class and political party elites. Today, we are on the threshold of transitioning to a new form of local government made possible through advances in technology over the last 25 years. We fuse software, mobile technology and the world's first, bicameral direct democracyTM form of government that allows residents to piggyback onto local government processes, infrastructure and resources. In so doing, real decision-making power will be placed back into the hands of the local community and removed from the hands of the political and corporate classes who regularly and surreptitiously distort the public good to benefit themselves, their political parties, their families and their friends. Welcome to the next phase of a more democratic, more participatory, more convenient, more agile, more targeted, less expensive and less corruptible form of municipal government in the years ahead, thanks to the technology tools of today. Welcome to E-Democracy. Try the E-Democracy demo software.
II. character, not color
Racial politics treats racial groups as an homogeneous collection of individuals all sharing similar history, values, opinions and struggles. The illusion of homogeneity allows a simple, singular message to strike a cord in the community--that you are a victim--and that you share a common enemy. Racial homogeneity is a form of racism in and of itself. Group Think deters any questioning of this narrative. In reality, racial group members are independent thinkers with a disparity of viewpoints that change from one generation to the next. Our candidates shall refuse to pander to or "bait" any voter segment by appealing to its "victim" status, whether it be race, color, sex, gender, religion, age or national origin, or through a shared trait between the candidate and the voters in relation to a "victim" class. Our candidates shall not use their own race, color, sex, gender, religion, age or national origin to appeal to voters who share a common trait. Our candidates appeal to voters on their ideas and problem solutions aimed at conditions such as poverty, illness, homelessness, drug addiction, unemployment, persecution, and others. The late Dr. Martin Luther King's memorable vision of a society that judges individuals on their character, not the color of their skin is a lesson not just about race, but about all differences among people.
