A Call for Revolutionaries

It’s easy to dress up as George Washington and call for revolution but this is not fun and games. We literally need to recruit an army of people who are literally tyrannizing us. What tyranny? It’s not just taxation without representation. It is an oppression so great that it is about to end us as a country. And who is the oppressor? The system of culprits – the two party system, the military-industrial complex, the media monopolies, the giant corporations. In short, the elite few who have been using us to line their pockets. They don’t care how miserable we become. They profit on our misery.

Time is ticking and it's time for a reality check.
Time is ticking and it’s time for a reality check.

How do we end the two party system? Before George Washington was a president he was a general. A general of what army? There was no army. Everyone said you can’t change the system. It was General Washington’s job to motivate them to take action, to fight for their liberty. We are at that crossroads once again. It is time we remembered George Washington and fought for the American dream by ending the oppression of the elite few and two party system they use to stir us to hatred and guard their stronghold. The Restoration Party has the prescription for America’s healing. This is a call for boots on the ground – not for a war fought with bullets but with ideas whose time has come. And the clock is ticking.

Surfing with Donald Trump

I indicated in several recent messages that I was seeking a private meeting with Donald Trump to be scheduled Spring, 2017. I’m an old Palm Beach surfer dude. Yes, he doesn’t surf. I know that. But he might actually like to use his beach for himself every now and then. Surfing is a great way to talk, similar to golf. We’ll both suck at it as I haven’t surfed since 1979. In this video I discuss what it is I want to talk to the Don about.

Apocalyptic Warning – Calling Restorationists

As I walked my dog this morning, I reflected on our nation’s debt. My proposal of a Net Worth tax is given in chapter two of the Restoration Party Manifesto. A 5% annual GDP growth rate with an average 30% tax rate produces an average 1.5% increase in tax revenue. This is an insufficient increase in revenue to even balance a budget, much less pay off the twenty trillion in accumulated debt, as Donald Trump proposed. My proposal immediately pays off the entire twenty trillion in national debt without increasing taxes or sacrificing any government programs. I argue here that a net worth tax is inherently fair because the twenty trillion dollars owed has primarily benefited the wealthy rather than the poor and the tax is not a hand out to the poor. It simply returns borrowed money.

I should add that the payment of the twenty trillion dollar debt can be managed through reassignable liens, as I described in chapter two of the Manifesto so there is never any liquidity shortage. Unlike net worth taxes attempted in France and Germany and other nations, the tax is not on items but on total worth, wherever it is possessed. Therefore, there won’t be a capital flight problem and this is not a proposal that has ever been attempted. The net worth tax is simply a bill. Unlike as in France, it is not the government who determines what property to place liens on. That power belongs to the owner of the assets and the tax payer can re-assign which property the liens are on any time they want for a modest fee.

I should also add that the net worth tax is just one of many possible ways to pay off the debt. Supplanting Federal currencies with state currencies while the dollar fails is another way. The debt can also be paid off more slowly. A thirty year mortgage at 3% comes to about one trillion per year. Please notice that no mortgage payment has ever been made on our national debt. We must now face our debt. If we don’t, the apocalypse this video predicts will result.

I am calling for Restoration Party activists to rise up and take power in the United States immediately in order to restore America to fiscal responsibility. Without fiscal responsibility, government does not serve us. It enslaves us. Our forefathers died in order to have a government that is FOR the people and OF the people and BY the people – not an elite few who exploit us for their personal careers and to line their own pockets with. If you want to take America back, you must dedicate your time collecting signatures for the Acts the Manifesto proposes, writing letters to Congress and converting activists to the Restoration Party. Voting is not enough. Your time is required. This is a war against time. I am issuing a solemn warning to America. Do not ignore what I am saying.

Restoration Party Values and Minority Interests

It’s Homecoming weekend at Florida A&M University, the nation’s most prized minority institution of higher learning, but all is not right in America. We have a long way to go before we’ve achieved healing between the races. In this video James Carvin talks about why the Restoration Party is the only solution to America’s racial division.

How to Overthrow the American Oligarchy (without violent revolution).

In this three part series, I urge listeners to offer a minimum of one hour of week in service, letting their legislators know about the Restoration Party as they support any of the five major Acts outlined in Chapter 3 of the Restoration Party Manifesto. It’s a lot of work but if you want to prevent a forthcoming apocalypse, you’ve got to take the time.

Part 1/3 Introduction


Part 2/3 Why I hate each of the other parties

Part 3/3 – Changing Party Affiliation means Divorcing the Oligarchy and the 99% will know that. (Sorry this is sideways for some reason.)

On Diversity and Biblical Tradition

My perspective on gay rights – a lesson on the fundamentals of Biblical interpretation. The end of this video was cut off with my conclusion, beginning with the words, “there are two things I don’t want.”

Here are the two things I don’t want: (1)the gay community telling religious institutions what to believe and what they can’t say, seeking to jail fundamentalists for hate speech and (2) the churches telling the government how to interpret the Bible and dictating its laws. I have always supported same sex civil marriage for this reason. As for the Restoration Party, while I do call everyone to be open minded, there is no party stance on the matter other than the separation of church and state. The party is about restoring government back to the people. The people have many views. Pitting conservatives against liberals divides them. Uniting as a single party with diverse views is a healthy step toward mutual respect. I’m fairly certain that is where the majority of Americans actually stand. I believe America is teachable. Can you reboot with a clear slate, please?


The Better Voting Systems Act

The Better Voting Systems Act –  Part 1/2

This first part talks about the problem with cyber security not only as it relates to the integrity of elections, but the integrity of the elected. It serves as an introduction to Restoration Party values.

The Better Voting Systems Act – Part 2/2

This second part spells out what the Better Voting Systems Act will do to restore representation to the American people so that their vote actually starts to matter again.
