Business Plan for a Political Party

I have written the Restoration Party Manifesto first draft with conveying the most important values of the Restoration Party as I see it. The need for a simplified version of the party platform and group decision about what is must be included or excluded is apparent. No party starts without supporters in agreement. My intention has simply been to get this party started, as they say. With that in mind, an acquaintance of mine, Carl Milsted Jr., from whom I have learned much, has just published his manual on how to start a political party. This is highly recommended reading. Please give it a close look if you are interested in making America truly great. Here’s the link. It’s not surprisingly titled, “Business Plan for a New Political Party.”

Preface

PREFACE

This is a Preface to the early preview version of The Restoration Party Manifesto: Pre and Post Apocalyptic Alternatives for the Future.

I have had three goals in mind in writing this latest book. First, I thought I would take the opportunity to offer my personal opinion on issues that matter to me. I’ve spent a lifetime making partial explanations and it has left me feeling uncomfortably understated. The second is to initiate and found an effective political party that will better handle the problems our country now faces. It seems to me we are in a great deal of trouble and the solution has been there all along. Third, I wanted to pave the way for a better world. I needed to point to a very dark and seemingly inevitable spot in America’s future, to a way to avert it, and to what to do if we don’t.

I’ve been churning the book out one chapter at a time since May 2016, when I first announced my candidacy for POTUS, as I’ve had time while working 80-100 hours/week to pay my bills, since I’ve never received any donations from anyone. There are three things I hope to accomplish with these early chapter releases. 1) To make it known what the Restoration Party stands for, 2) to perhaps attract the help of a patron, an editor and if I’m lucky, a publisher and 3) to get some critiques from my friends.

I can’t overstate how many hours I’ve put in. It’s coming along OK as a side project but I think it deserves much more than I’m capable of personally giving it. Understand that the work is in progress and hasn’t even reached a rough draft status. The pictures used are placed there primarily to make the columns thinner and the text more readable by breaking it up. Some are borrowed in blogger style, and those will all certainly have to be replaced for copyright reasons, including some of the memes I customized. The formatting of the ultimate book is up to the editor. I could use an illustrator too.

As far as obtaining a publisher goes, I think  I may have a chance as a non-celebrity. Normally a publisher looks for a platform. The platform here is sort of built into a political party that stands to become quite large if it gets a jump start somehow. The strategy itself is mapped out in the book on the pages already published and I think that should work. It can be self-published I suppose but I haven’t put much thought into whether I should charge for it, etc. and could use some guidance on the matter. It is the first political book I’ve written. Thank you for taking the time to critique the chapters that are available. The present Preface is a temporary one for a work in progress.

 

Chapter One

Ch. 1: When Old Systems Don't Work
Ch. 1: When Old Systems Don’t Work

SUMMARY: In Chapter One of the Restoration Party Manifesto, I describe the problem of the two party system and the national disease that perpetuates it. In every chapter I describe a basic problem and then provide the solution. There is no point in griping about problems without fixing them. Why not join me in being part of the solution?!

The Restoration Party Manifesto is an eight chapter book with supporting appendices that will serve as the basis for the ideology and mission statement of the Restoration Party.

The work is currently in progress. The first six chapters have been published for a preview and the seventh chapter is on its way. If you would like to see it published sooner, rather than later, please contact me about ways you can help.

Chapter Two

Ch. 2: Solution A
Ch. 2: Solution A

SUMMARY: In Chapter Two of the Restoration Party Manifesto, I describe the problem of the national debt and its ramifications for the coming financial apocalypse, which must mathematically occur within sixteen years at the current rate of accumulation and acceleration. There is a price to pay for fixing the national debt but my solution does not involve either increasing income taxes or removing any government services. I propose the entire twenty trillion dollar debt can be eliminated in a single day. I then address common objections to my solution and challenge the reader to propose a better solution to submit as the Restoration Party Rx.

Chapter Three

Ch. 3: How to Slay the Giant Monsters
Ch. 3: How to Slay the Giant Monsters

SUMMARY: In Chapter Three of the Restoration Party Manifesto, I identify the core systemic sources of government corruption in the United States and provide the tools for delivering America from their tyranny. The main problem is that our politicians look on public service as a way to be served rather than to serve. To restore government to the role of serving the public, it is necessary to limit it as a career path and to break up the media monopoly as well as revamp the election process. There are five major Acts presented as solutions. They must be taken together in order to work and as such they show the need for a new political party, the Restoration Party. In short, the solution is the Restoration Party.

Chapter Four

Ch. 4: The Most Powerful Position
Ch. 4: The Most Powerful Position

SUMMARY: In Chapter Four of the Restoration Party Manifesto, I outline the position of the Restoration Party relative to other parties using an X, Y and Z axis. I review the history of the emergence of third parties in America and contrast successful long term third parties with parties that have had low impact or faded as soon as they made a hit. There is a close comparison between the Republican Party’s positioning in the nineteenth century and the Restoration Party as I am posing it. In short, the Restoration Party is positioned and designed to last.

Chapter Five

Ch. 5: What is a Tax Policy with Restorationist Values?
Ch. 5: What is a Tax Policy with Restorationist Values?

SUMMARY: In Chapter Five of the Restoration Party Manifesto, I show how the Neutral Tax is ideally suited for a Restoration Party policy position. Any national debt elimination Rx proposed by any Restorationist leader will be better served when states have the freedom to choose tax policies in their own best interest. The program is not only compatible but allows net worth tax alternatives such as the one I proposed in Chapter Two through a back step process to Article 2 of the Constitution. The general position of states as being served by the Federal government parallels the service all government has to be restored to in order to serve the people. The proposal eliminates the IRS and simplifies the tax code without robbing from the poor to give to the rich.

Ch. 6: Restored Health Care

SUMMARY: In Chapter Six of the Restoration Party Manifesto, I introduce the Restored Health Care System. It takes a step back from the Affordable Care Act, inventories through its failures, examines its systemic causes, follows the advice of industry insiders, follows the money trails, undoes worrisome tax relationships, and delivers one step at a time what the American people, rich and poor, actually seek.

Ch. 7: Defending America

SUMMARY: We are currently sending bombs into seven different countries with which we are not at war. This is not exactly earning us worldwide love and admiration. In Chapter Seven of the Restoration Party Manifesto, I will introduce the Military Repentance Act (MRA). America has much to be proud of but we must not let pride blind us to the humility that makes any nation truly great. We do not just proceed forward blindly to build our military out of historical or economic context. The way to prevent more towers from toppling down is to build them on a more solid foundation. True world leadership makes amends and it leads by example, walking in mindfulness. We will restore our military strength through sound fiscal policy at home and abroad. This requires building on the previous chapters of the Manifesto. It also requires a clear signal to the world that we are confessing our sin. We have much blood on our hands both at home and abroad. While much of this is rationalized and justified, it is nevertheless regretful and something we must commit ourselves to avoid in all future endeavors to the extent that this is possible.

In every chapter I describe a basic problem and then provide the solution. There is no point in griping about problems without fixing them. Why not join me in being part of the solution?!
