The folks over at Revolt Against Plutocracy asked me to do a short “elevator pitch” for my CFAR candidate contract strategy, which they’re aggressively promoting. I thought it went pretty well except for a couple frightened looking people in the elevator. Here is the video. The text of the entire presentation follows.
Thirty-second floor, please.
(Barely audible) ”ヘンなアメリカ人がいてはるわ〜” [ Translation: There is the strange American. ]
Are you as fed up with Washington DC as I am? Nothing gets done for you and I. Everything gets done for the rich and powerful.
There’s only one solution. We need a people’s Congress. That’s where the power is . . .
Which means we need to get rid of the pay-for-play legislators on both sides of the aisle and put some good, honest, hard-working folks in office, ones who we know with certainty will go to Washington and represent us, the people who elect them — not their Wall Street donors, not their deep-pocketed corporate benefactors, not their country club friends.
That’s exactly what we at Revolt Against Plutocracy are doing. We’re going for broke in this coming election. We’re shooting for where the real power is . . . the U.S. Congress.
We have a candidate contract called a CFAR, which spells out in black-and-white what we expect a candidate to do. If they sign it, great, we’ll get behind them come the November 2018 election.
If they don’t sign it, we will find a candidate who will. We’ll only vote for candidates who have signed the CFAR, even if we have to write them in.
Forget about parties, ideologies, labels. We’re just looking for the right candidate to do the right job — for us! That’s it in a nutshell. We’ll know it’s the right candidate because he or she will be signing a legally-binding contract to serve the voters of the district.
You can find out more about all of this at our website. Just go to citizensagainstplutocracy.wordpress.com. The link is also posted in the description below. Look at the CFAR, the Contract For American Renewal. See how our strategy is going to turn this whole mess on its head, and shake up Congress like it’s never been shook up before. Sign up to be part of the solution. See how easy it is for us to achieve real change in Washington DC next November.
A people’s Congress. A Congress that works for everyone, not just the rich and powerful.
Check it out. The future of our country depends on it.
