WHY DO AMERICANS CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY ON JULY 4 INSTEAD OF JULY 2?   This particular blog has an interesting evolution that suggests to me a spiritual synchronicity at work because the research it caused me to do is instructive with regards to several cases which I am currently working on. Let me explain. In late September, 2016 I was contacted by someone from Facebook about doing an interview on Press TV about the Wells Fargo scandal, which ultimately caused its CEO John Stumpf to resign in October, 2016. I am sure many of you remember the scandal. Wells Fargo had instructed many of its employees to fraudulently create new accounts for millions of its customers. Wells Fargo then dinged these customers for fees related to the fraudulent accounts, which came directly out of the money the customers had deposited in their personal accounts with Wells Fargo. Given that most of us live paycheck to paycheck, think about the number of overdraft fees this fraud generated for Wells Fargo and how much it impacted most of its customers. Although the employees crimes were apparent, prosecutors apparently looked the other way because a bank was paying its employees to break the law.

Representatives Should Serve Their Constituents.

I have a dream that Representatives will serve their constituents, not lobbyists.   I am running for representative in Congressional District 1 of Washington State. Our founders intended representatives would serve the people, i.e. constituents, who live in their districts. It is difficult to do this in the United States in the 21st century. This is because in order to get elected representatives must generally look beyond their constituents in order to obtain enough money to get voters in their district to elect them. This causes representatives to be beholden to those who gave them the money to get elected, rather than they constituents they are obligated to serve. I believe this cycle must stop if we want to create a fair and just society. Therefore, I am not seeking any campaign contributions whatsoever. I have a record of conduct and writings since childhood which reflects my beliefs and thought processes throughout my life. I urge you to review who I am and what I stand for so you can determine for yourselves whether I would appropriately represent you, your families, and the communities in Washington’s Congressional district one. I have included links to sites where you can obtain information about me and my beliefs at the end of this article. But these links are not intended to tell you how I will vote on issues. If you elect me as your Congressional Representative I will seek out my constituents views on issues and do the best I can to … Continue Reading
