TheBorg for President



I, TheBorg, hereby declare that I am running for the office of President of The United States and am running for the Reform party.

In short, my platform is simple:
I aim to make the world a better place by allowing the exercise of free thought to determine the outcome of the laws that are made in the US. We, the People, should be the ones that dictate policy, not the political elites.

To expand:
The People need someone that can lead them into a new era. They need someone that's capable of giving them the one thing they lack; a voice. I, TheBorg, am seeking the Reform Party nomination for the Abovepolitics.com President of the United States because I think I can lead America into that new era.

My plan, should I be elected, is to create a system of voting, where everyone of legal voting age will be encouraged to vote their opinions on the issues that beset us. Whatever the People decide, I, as their elected representative, MUST accept, and foster on their behalf.

Representatives that currently hold office will remain there, but they will be effectively reduced to the status of political envoy to the People that they were directly elected by. They will have the same voting power as any other legal voter. Should the People dislike anything that they do, they have the right and obligation, at any time, to absolve their candidacy from the Congress, and elect someone new. The same will be for me as well. Should you, the People, at any time, feel as though I am not performing my duties adequately, you are mandated, by myself, to remove me from office, if necessary, by force, to ensure the common welfare of the People. Everyone is accountable. Even me.

One other key change will be the absolution of the House of Representatives. All Representatives will retain their jobs, however. They will just become Senators, as the National Senate will be expanded to accommodate the new arrivals. As the issues come up, the Senate will discuss them in an open forum, much as they do now, and then pose the question to the People. The People will then vote on the bills presented, and the motion will be carried based on how they vote.

Each legal voter, including myself, has the same voting power; meaning that my vote is no more powerful than anyone else's.

At the time of voting, all will vote, with equal say, on the bills presented. After the bills have been voted on, there's no other choice than to accept them as they are. Records of the votes will be kept so that all can see how each other voted. It's my opinion that no one should be afraid to say what they mean, and that includes when voting.

If, at any time, someone feels as though they are being pressured into voting in some way that's contrary to their opinions, then they are no longer free-thinking. This system's sole purpose is to preserve that freedom.

The freedom of every man, woman, and child in this country is always in jeapordy. Please, let's see to it that this threat is eliminated forever. Vote for me, and you WILL have a voice, one that will be heard worldwide as the only one that dictates what happens in this country. Other nations will be envious of what we have, when they see how we come together as a unified group.

Only through Unity can we move forward. And forward is the only way to Peace and Freedom. Help me to help you, and see what a difference one vote can really make.

For True Democracy, of, by, and FOR the People,

TheBorg

Question for The Borg


Is it true that your true goal is the complete and total assimilation of all mankind into the collective?

What are you real feelings about individuality and individual thoughts not being linked into the hive mind?

Welcome to the race The Borg

I've been asking all candidates this.


What is your opinion the current election age, that is having to be at least
35 to become president, should it be lowered, raised or stay the same?

What are your thoughts on the requirement that one must be born in the
United States to become president, should it be changed or stay the
same?

So basically, you're proposing to overthrow our republican form of government and replace it with a bona fide democratic one? (little r and little d)

Won't this require the replacement of, or heavy modification to, our current Constitution of the United States? Can you please elaborate on exactly how you'd accomplish this?

Thanks

While the old collective functioned on that... rudimentary level of intelligence, I believe we've risen above that kind of thing to a new plateau of existence. One where we can, as a unified group, with individual thoughts, better solve the problems that plague us.



What are you real feelings about individuality and individual thoughts not being linked into the hive mind?

Welcome to the race The Borg


Quite the contrary. Individual thought has recently been allowed to exist within the ranks of the Hive, since we discovered how much more efficiently we work when everyone can think at least semi-independently. I think that individuality is something that needs to be fostered in a more modern environment. The Hive cluster is still conceptualized by the National Senate, however, where like minds can come together to discuss those things that are important to the rest of the People. Not to mention the fact that every person, elected official or not, is a member of a larger group, or collective if you will, that thrives on the presence of each other for survival.

For Democracy,
TheBorg

I think the age should remain where it is, since that seems to be the point at about everyone's life that they begin to come to grips with what's really going on in the world. Yes, some come to that realization earlier, but the point is that they also need time to establish themselves politically, and become "someone" before running. While I don't necessarilly subscribe to the becoming known part, I can understand why some choose to go that path. It allows them to make friends.



What are your thoughts on the requirement that one must be born in the

I think that any legal citizen of the US, that has lived here for over half of their lives, has as much right to run for the presidential office as anyone else. If they don't meet any one of the requirements above, then they shouldn't be allowed to run.

I hope this answers your questions. If you have more, just ask.

I'm not overthrowing anything. I'm merely making a couple of amendments to the Constitution that would make the People the true governing body in this country, not some small group of wealthy elites that don't listen to their constituents.

No, I don't think it will require any major changes, aside from the changes of the powers of the Congress to create laws, as well as the Congressional structure. Aside from those two small changes, I don't see anything really barring this from progression.

What I'm suggesting is that we even the playing field a bit by giving the People the ability to call the shots when it comes to what happens to them and their fellow Americans.

All of these things can be done through the simple addition of amendments to the Constitution that would enable the above things to be enacted.

The first amendment would be to limit the National Senate to simply debating the bills being brought forth, and expanding the People's powers of voting to include all legislative votes as well as those that we currently vote on. This serves a couple of purposes. One, it encourages more people to get involved in the politics of their community, as well as fostering the general well-being that our current society seems to be in such short supply of. We need to have more care for the common man than we do right now.

Secondly, it allows for the People to have an actual say in what gets done in both their local community as well as at the national level. This will make the People realize that they play an integral part in the policies of their country, and will serve to bring everyone together under the common umbrella of unity.

An added bonus, which isn't so obvious at first inspection, is that this will completely eliminate the ability for very wealthy individuals to influence the outcomes of votes by giving "political contributions" to other Senators, as they have no more sway in the votes than does the President, or anyone else for that matter. Political corruption would pretty much be a thing of the past.

I like your positions Borg. In regard to Iori's question, would you seek to raise this issue during your presidency?

Thanks, and good luck

Let me put it this way: everything on my platform will be supported by me when/if I get elected.

hi borg, i agree that we have similar ideas on what a participatory society would look like. My book, the next hundred years: thinking with hear=passion is almost out in stores. I can send you a free copy over the internet if you'd like some new platform ideas. I'm really interested in how to help the volunteer movement and to creat a think tank both using a website that is made my the people's government. The volunteer organization center would help volunteers to find a place to get involved and also where supporters could help contribute. I believe the volunteer movement is whats going to save the world.

I like your voting system, one way to make sure ppl all have one vote is a finger print scan into a computer data base along with some other things. The voting system today is easily hackable.

I'd like to help give you ideas for your campaign. I personally am a socialist pro chavez revolution. This position may be too radical for the rich united states but give it time. Giving us political power is the first step to beating the elite.

Theres a book called conversations with god 2 that talks about getting rid of money and replacing it with a credit/debit system making all transactions visable. This would eliminate the drug trade controlled by the cia and mafias. Making transactions visable would eliminate a lot of evil really fast. So transparency with money is a good idea. Transparency in government is also a good idea.

Do you think people like the bilderburgs should be aloud to meet in secret? Well i just think its not fair that the government is spying on ppl like me but we can't spy on ppl like them.

Please forgive my tardiness to your post. I'm currently in the process of writing up an OP/ED that is heavily focused on the political dealings of the very people that you speak of. Well, not this very organization per se, but the "elites" in general.

Please stay tuned for an answer.

For Freedom,
TheBorg
