Candidate Contracts: Weaponizing Populist Electoral Campaigns

A short time ago, I characterized the practical intent, the rubber-hits-the-road goal of the candidate contract strategy in these words: “The purpose of the candidate contract strategy is to get the good guys elected and throw the bad guys out of office.” That sums it up as succinctly as I know how. Of course, if it works, it will have far-reaching implications in terms of restoring representative democracy and establishing new higher standards for electoral integrity. But first things first. Let’s put it to work! Here’s how. Continue reading

No Contract No Vote

Our democracy is in the middle of an existential crisis. That hardly suggests we should turn to those who have been participating in, have often been instrumental in engineering the mess, to see what their latest bright ideas are. In fact, it demands some fresh blood, some fresh thinking, some fresh ideas! Thus we need to clean house in Washington DC. On the critical issues of our time, candidate contracts take the guesswork out of voting. We’ll know exactly who gets to stay and who must go. Thus the time is right for this powerful new standard for informed voter choice. Unless you have a better idea . . . Continue reading

How do we confront abuse of power and restore democracy?

We either take charge or suffer more indignities and abuse at the hands of the ruling elite and their pay-for-play lackeys, the folks we send to Washington DC to do a job but who end up ignoring the very citizens they are supposed to be working for — that would be you and I! Fortunately, candidate contracts afford a bulletproof method for guaranteeing results and guaranteeing that anyone running for office who will not warranty their allegiance to the voters who put them in office will never have a shot at being elected. Continue reading

Whack A Mole Activism

The ruling class have us constantly scrambling, in a frenzy, panicked and overwhelmed, confronted by one crisis after another. The reaction by our end of the political spectrum has been short-sighted and fragmented. Disoriented and exhausted by the sheer number of crises being created, we’re never able to mount a unified, comprehensive, coherent counterattack. We work hard but our energies are scattered. We end up with what I call Whack A Mole activism. How then do we stop playing this game? We unplug it, take it out back, then take a sledgehammer to it. We destroy the machine! There is no other choice. Continue reading

Bird Dogging

Bird dogging has nothing to do with dogs hunting birds or birds hunting dogs. It’s basically in-person harassment, pursuit of an individual “with dogged determination”, and is commonly used against politicians who are being outed by their opponents or the media, for dramatic effect. Continue reading

Public Shaming

If our current congressman can’t step up to the plate and play their very best game for the home team, they should be shamed, booed, reviled, scorned, humiliated, burned in effigy! Let them stew in the cauldron of the bad publicity they heap on themselves, then rot in a big foul steaming pile of their own wickedness, after we haul the garbage to the dump! They have no shame of their own, so we need to bring shame to bear down on them ourselves, exposing their deceptions and treachery. Then they will be confronted with a stark choice: they either start listening to the public they now arrogantly ignore or consign themselves to oblivion. Continue reading

Dealing With A Serial Liar

Serial killers and career politicians are very similar. They both have us at their mercy. They both have the power of life and death over us. They don’t play by the same rules as you and I. They are ruthlessly amoral. There is only one way to deal with a serial killer. There is only one way to deal with lying politicians. They must be taken out of circulation. They must be isolated so they can never inflict abuse and suffering on others ever again. Continue reading
