Please go to my Crowdpac page and "Endorse" me and "Support" me in whatever way you can. It is FREE and there is no charge for these forms of support. If you “pledge” to our campaign you will not be charged until the site makes the campaign “official.”

I would appreciate all of the support that you and your friends can send to me. I believe the following should link you to my page. I thank you in advance for your help and support.

I am currently trying to get enough support for my presidential campaign, with your help and that of your friends, and many others, to be the first non-partisan presidential candidate to actually be on the ballot in all of the states, and represent you the people of the United States of America as the first non-partisan president of the United States of America since George Washington. Yes, he was the first and so far only non-partisan president of the United States.

I am always interested in and welcome all of the constructive comments you may have. It is time that We the People were represented by our government for your interests, not the personal interests of the politicians, and rich people, who run the government, as so often happens now.

Many people are asking me if they can write-in my name for president, the answer is "yes" however I need many people's help for those votes to be counted, as I have noted below in this note. When we can actually get on the ballot the write-in effort will not be necessary. Thank you.

I have the only ongoing non-partisan (which is write-in until we can get on the ballots) presidential campaign. Since I am not a party I must do everything, so I need 538 electors (all persons who are interested are encouraged to contact me and request that honor), some for each state and Washington DC. If you are interested in becoming one please let me know. I am still looking for a good vice-president, and a first lady (yes I am presently single). If you have any ideas which I can include in the campaign which will help everyone please tell me that too. My campaign has always been a campaign for the people since it was started in 1950, and was turned into a presidential campaign in 1960 at the suggestion of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. As you might notice I am still trying to learn how to set things up on the Internet. Someone who can help with things like videos would be very helpful. Frankly I can use all of the help that I can get, so feel free to help if you can. I am not too proud to ask for or accept help.

I want to get all of my electors and other paperwork filed with all of the states so we can get all of my votes in all of the states counted. I really appreciate all of the help you can give. You are not only helping me but all of the American people when you help the campaign. Thank you.

I have copied a brief description of the campaign that I have put on my MySpace page after this note for your information.

Best regards,

Why does a Presidential Candidate need to solicit support for many years?

Why does a Presidential Candidate need to solicit support for many years?

I apologize for the length of this note, however; some explanation and examples are helpful in this discussion.  I hope this makes it clear why Our Campaign needs your Support (of ALL kinds) now and for as long as you can give it so that we can succeed for ALL of The American People.

First I should mention that since I have worked for The United States Government for over 30 years it has been illegal (that it would violate the “Hatch Act”) for me to do more than campaign on issues and work (as I always have since 1950) for the kind of constructive change which the Professional Politicians will never offer or actually give to The American People.  I therefore could not legally do any of the things required to participate directly in ANY Presidential Campaign, or other political campaign, until I retired from the Government of Our Country.  Now that I have officially “retired”, from my position with the Government, I can both legally Campaign and run as a Candidate for The President of The United States, as many people have continually told me I should do.

Nearly all of the people who I have talked with, even those who have tried to run for President on (in 2012) and before and after that, even though they have all probably studied American Government in school have absolutely ZERO idea what is required for everyone (Except candidates selected by The Democratic and Republican Party) to do in order to be on the ballot, or be a “Write-In” Candidate, for President of The United States, and actually get the votes for their Presidential Campaign counted in all of the States.  The candidates selected by The Democratic and Republican Party have to do practically NOTHING and the process cost those candidates practically nothing, because The Democratic and Republican Party have OWNED The Government of The United States for many years and passed laws which exempt them (The Democratic and Republican Party) from the extremely laborious and expensive process which they have set up to require ALL other Presidential Candidates, by law, to complete.

The Presidential Election is NOT a National Election, as it should be. The actual process is completely different for each State.  A very small number of States require very little for candidates who are not selected by The Democratic and Republican Party.  Other States make it as difficult and expensive as legally, and illegally, possible for any candidates not selected by The Democratic and Republican Party to be on the ballot or even get their votes counted.  I understand at this writing that it is still not legal in some states to be on the Ballot, or be a “Write-In”, as a Presidential Candidate unless you first get permission from The Democratic and Republican Party.  When working on my 2008 Presidential Campaign (which was the first Presidential Election I could legally run in, since I am now no longer prohibited from doing so by The Hatch Act) I accumulated much of the information which would be required just to start to run as a Presidential Candidate in all of the States.  If I printed it all out completely it would take up several very large printed volumes, and that is just part of the “instructions” for each State.

Now that I have given the background, the answer to the question I posed in the title of this note should be easy to guess.  Since nobody except candidates selected by The Democratic and Republican Party have the massive Party “Infrastructure” in all of the states to do all of the things that The Democratic and Republican Party has made necessary for all of the other Candidates, all of the other Candidates must campaign for however long that it is required to find the people in each state which will be required to meet the massive requirement which each State requires for each Presidential Candidate to be approved to even get their votes counted in each States.  That process can quite literally take many years and it must be ready to be completed in the relatively short time-span required by the laws established by The Democratic and Republican Party in the year of the Presidential Election.  What I am saying here is in order to succeed Our Campaign really needs the actual support of at least some people in every State. (a Non-Partisan organization) spent millions of dollars and traveled all over The United States in a large Interstate Bus with a “wrap” (which can still be seen on the ( Web Site.  That is something that nobody except an extremely rich person could afford to even try to do.  I am not rich.  During the bus tour in 2012 they found that “In order to obtain ballot access nationwide, some states' guidelines required Americans Elect to register as a political party.[8] For the 2012 elections, Americans Elect succeeded in ballot access status in 29 states: Alabama,Alaska,[9] Arizona,[9]Arkansas,[10] California,[11][12] Colorado,[13] Florida,[14]Hawaii,[15] Kansas,[9] Maine,[16] MarylandMichigan,[14] Mississippi,[17]Montana,[18] Nebraska,[19] Nevada,[9] New Mexico,[20] North Carolina,[21] North DakotaOhio,[22] Oklahoma,[23] OregonRhode Island,[24] South Carolina,South DakotaUtah,[25] Vermont,[26] Wisconsin[27] and Wyoming.[28]

(The above and below quotes are from the AmericansElect Wikipedia Web Page. Several aspects of the process were flawed to the EXTREME which should be very obvious and contributed to the result which I have copied from Wikipedia which follows, and they, therefore; rather than fixing the problems canceled their participation in the entire 2012 Presidential Election. As an actual participant in the the flaws were extremely obvious to me, and should have been obvious to everyone who was paying any attention, especially the management of the project.)

“However, on May 1, 2012, the first primary ballot (which had been scheduled for May 8) was cancelled, because no candidate had garnered sufficient support clicks to qualify for the ballot.[35] Voting was then rescheduled to begin on May 15, 2012.[35] However, with no candidate qualifying for the ballot to be held on that date, the primary was pushed off again.[36] On May 17, the organization issued a statement that it was ending its nomination process because no candidate had achieved the required amount of support to qualify for its primary ballot.[37]

In July 2012, the remaining board members decided to officially end Americans Elect's presidential efforts and withdrew its name from most state ballots.[38]

The Americans Elect website is still accessible, but has not been updated since 2012.

As of September 2015, Americans Elect has made no attempt to revive its process for the 2016 presidential election, despite widespread dissatisfaction with the two major parties.”, so-far, is NOT a success story but, in their failure, a lesson about what is necessary to succeed, and a lesson to learn from their mistakes.

I give the experience as an example of why someone who is not as rich as the founders of must work for YEARS, as I have done (and will continue to do until we are successful) with Our Campaign for the American People, to actually win The Presidential Election.  When we have actually succeeded we will, at the very least, have a much better platform to work from to start to correct many of the problems which The Democratic and Republican Party have very deliberately and selfishly created entirely for their benefit, and that of their rich supporters, and to the extreme detriment of the interests of ALL of The American People in the Presidential Election Process, and in many other ways.
