In a YouTube video, Jesse Ventura indicated the idea of having the candidates running for elective office without an indication of the political affiliation under the candidate name during voting. Jesse indicated the voting public would therefore have to read or become familiar with the candidate’s position(s) and would eliminate the idea of picking a candidate is like picking a horse at a race. Secondly, Jesse indicated there should also be the ability to have a category for each elected position listed as a “Vote of No-Confidence” for that particular elected office. I would go one step further and advocate for law in each state and also a Congressional law for President, that stated if more than 50% plus one vote was for the "No-Confidence" option, then a new election would be called with all new candidates running for that specific elective office. (What a complete political “game-changer”). Jesse Ventura, you are my hero.
If elected, I would provide a weekly podcast to relay information about the happenings, the issues, and decisions made in Congress. A way for information to flow from DC to the people of the 6th Congressional District. Alternatively, I would also provide quarterly town-hall meetings, around cities of the 6th Congressional District so people could ask questions of me and express their concerns and issues.
Since Congress is dysfunctional, what if 10% of both houses of Congress were other than Republican or Democratic representatives? This would allow both Democrats (45%) and Republicans (45%) to convince the other independent representatives (about 5%) to reach a compromise in order to have any laws/bills passed in US Congress. This proposition could overcome the gridlock.
New FCC Laws
Requiring all TV and radio stations to provide free air time for “ political info-mericals”. This would give all political candidates access to free TV, and radio air time. Broadcast time allotted to all candidates, no exceptions. Would create a way to allow free access of written info for all candidates in local newspapers.
No political polls to be conducted within 4 months of an election. The election of all US representatives (local and national) needs to be based on the conviction of individual evaluation, not on the politics of a political poll.
1 New Federal Home Mortgage Loan & Bond Program - more equity in a shorter time period using profits, about 10 billion/yr, to offset SS/Medicare payments - federal gov is now competing with banks for loans
2 New Federal Auto Loan & Bond Program - using profits from loans to help disabled Vets and VA care, food for the starving poor, care for the homeless
3 New Federal Co-Operative Business Organization Loan & Bond Program - through the (Small Business Association - SBA) - employee-owned business - using profits to fund “crash program” for Fusion Power
4 Federal Tuition Assistance Loan & Bond Program - loans for college - reduction in loans for military service and national draft program
All four above federal bond programs could be used for a secure conservative saving plan - Bonds used to generate the money for loans
None of the four above loan programs would have the interest payments “front-end loaded” - more equity in shorter period of time - the federal gov now earns money like a bank
5 Crash Program (10 years) for Fusion Power (Green Power) need this technology to overcome fossil fuels - Also use Thorium molten salt reactors which is fission power until fusion power is fully developed
6 Redistribution of Federal Gasoline Fuel Tax - about 9 billion/yr for Louisiana costal restoration - (⅓ of the total tax = 29 billion/year from gasoline tax)
Three most important factors for all costal restoration - #1-Money, #2-Money and #3-more Money - $9 billion is a good amount of money
7 Construct Mississippi Water Pipeline (possible for Ohio & Missouri valley) through southwest states - to prevent flooding & help the Gulf (less polluted water) - to provide water for farming in California and other western states
8 Health Care Program - "US Super Health Plan" - Single-Payer Plan - based on age and income - could be paid by employer - managed by independent 3rd party - everyone pays (cradle to grave) - everyone is covered. Premiums provided by high income individuals would offset the cost of people out of work. Only for individuals in current FICA system for less than15 years
Examples: 20-year-old making $20,000 - pays $400/year
45 year old making $60,000 - pays $2,700/year
50-year old making $1 million pays - $50,000/year
9 Tax and Revenue Reform Act - Flat Rate Tax - Individual 10% + 2% towards national debt - Business tax same rate as Congressional spending (about 30% + 2% towards national debt) No federal tax on income below the federal poverty level - Create new Federal Revenue Dept - No more IRS
10 Immigration Policy & U.S. Citizenship Policy - Create Virtual Border Walls- new US policy to become a citizen
11 Congressional Changes - Term limits, Abolition of the filibuster, Elimination of Electoral College, Voting by cell phone on all congressional bills becomes a requirement - Congressional representatives should be required to resign their office before running for another elective office (which is only fair to the voters who elected that candidate in their state)
Eliminate and make unlawful the nepotism for all of Congress
Limits on congressional campaign spending

There needs to be a new ideal model for the candidate of US President which is expressively represented by retired BG Robert Spalding (please view the YouTube video by Patrick Bet-David). Robert Spalding needs to run as an independent candidate for President, which will probably end in a constitutional crisis highlighting the inequity of the Electoral College. Three of the last Presidents had no military experience and only one was a half-time reserve officer. Their lack of military experience is exemplified by poor decisions of the last 4 presidents and given the world of competing global economics and because of former communist countries exerting their military prowess a presidential candidate needs to posses a higher intellect and a higher skill set. All future Presidents need to have extensive military and managerial experience and board technical experience other than just having a law degree or serving in Congress. The United States needs a president like Robert Spalding and hope most middle class Americans would agree.
Given the four (4) loan & bonds proposals as part of the platform of
“RPT 50 + 1”, for homes, autos, businesses, and education coupled with the need to fix this country’s electrical grid, fix its decrepit bridges, and fix the Louisiana coastline, plus the necessity to develop fusion power and implementation of Miss River water pipeline with initiatives for installing individual wind/solar energy systems there should be no reason why this country could not have 100% employment in the US. I believe the reason for never having 100% employment in this country’s history is both political and economic. That is, the political system has never, fostered, insured & developed the economic opportunity to allow 100% employment.
The US Gross Domestic Product (GNP) & US Federal Debt
The 2019 US GNP = $20 Trillion - The US Federal Debt = $27 Trillion
January 2020 US GNP = 23 Trillion - US Federal Debt = $29.8 Trillion
Interest on the debt is about $ 1 billion/day. How to solve this debt problem is a national security necessity.
