We have a serious problem with our floundering democracy.
Our elected representatives don’t represent us. Thus, the people have no real voice in the direction and running of the country.
Yes, every election cycle candidates make delightful speeches, offering vague but pleasant rhetoric on all the wonderful things they will do for “we the people” once elected.
Unfortunately, when they arrive in Washington, D.C., amnesia sets in, and they forget the folks back home who put them in their cushy jobs in our nation’s capital. They then take their marching orders from their deep-pocketed corporate patrons slash ruling-elite puppet masters, and we get a country that serves only the rich and powerful, with the rest of us scrambling to survive.
This is why we’ve created the CFAR national electoral strategy.
CFAR stands for Contract For American Renewal. It’s a contract between a candidate for office and the voters in his or her voting jurisdiction—i.e., their congressional district or their state.
The candidate contract idea is and straightforward.
The candidate contract takes the guesswork out of voting.
It’s a radical innovation that sets a new standard for electoral integrity. It provides a bulletproof mechanism for deciding a candidate stands on crucial issues, how serious that candidate is about solving the problems that are important to voters, how serious that candidate is about representing his or her constituents.
In fact, it sets down in writing exactly what that candidate will be doing on 11 key initiatives when he or she arrives in Washington, D.C.—right from Day One
