To the heroes among us; to the leaders who are impassioned by humanity and peace as opposed to violence and greed; to the bearers of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness:
Dear Free and Equal Supporter,
Freedom and liberty, two quintessential ideals that serve as the backbone to the American essence, were established and promulgated as our fundamental bedrock by the original founders of our constitutional republic: Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson, amongst others. These men, who believed in liberty and man’s right to tranquility, dedicated their lives and ability to the hope of establishing a system of governance that encompassed and embodied the distinguishing characteristics for everlasting dignity and solidarity. Today, however, after years of electoral and political corruption, many Americans have lost their faith in the voting mechanisms that once ensured the republic would remain safe from tyranny.
Amongst a sea of establishment candidates who rise to power year after year representing the status-quo, Americans may wonder where the continental leader, constitutional drafter, or ethical pillar reside; where are America’s heroes of yesterday? This tantalizing thought that compels our individualized paradoxes inadvertently prevents the recognition of the Jefferson within. Americans today, through their cultural fear remain transfixed by their jobs, families, and associations to tap into the underlying hero that resides within.
The coming 2016 elections present an opportunity to enact true change towards liberty and political equality. Up for reelection in 2016 is the presidency, 34 seats in the Senate, and 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Rather than running along partisan divides, we need more than anything, independent leaders capable of enacting policy based upon the true sentiment of We, the People. The two major parties have steered our nation to a breaking point; to continue onward with a political duopoly only secures our fate as a libertyless nation.
The Free and Equal Elections Foundation has developed into a highly specialized tool for enacting this sort of political change. Later this Fall, the 2015 United We Stand Festival will bring together influential leaders, speakers, professionals, artists, and musicians for a festival based upon the common threads of liberty and equality in the political spectrum. This opportunity would highlight the efforts of those candidates that wish to fight against the current of the status-quo. Similarly, the Free and Equal Elections Foundation has embarked on a journey to launch the Election Assistant App, a clean interface that allows the voter to easily research candidates and information from all viable candidates, regardless of party lines.
Taken together, America desperately needs 470 leaders throughout the United States of America to rise above party lines, corporate greed, and PAC allegiances; to become the modern bearers of liberty in the footsteps of the founding fathers. These efforts would not be undertaken alone. The Free and Equal Elections Foundation seeks to assist and support every viable candidate in receiving equal representation in media exposure, while also providing an opportunity to defend one’s position in an open, inclusive debate platform; broadening electoral choices.
To the heroes among us; to the leaders who are impassioned by humanity and peace as opposed to violence and greed; to the bearers of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness: Do not despair, your time is here, 2016 is the year.
