Did you know that the number of Americans getting benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million? In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system. And did you know that nearly 70 percent of all of the money that the federal government spends goes toward entitlement and welfare programs? When it comes to the transfer of wealth, nobody does it on a grander scale than the U.S. government. Most of what the government does involves taking money from some people and giving it to other people. In fact, at this point that is the primary function of the federal government.

How U.S. is lagging on quality of life →


Sure, there are invincible pockets of wealth that exist outside of time and reality - you know who and where they are - that enjoy a high standard of living. But beyond those untouchable, impenetrable bubbles and echo chambers we’ve got major problems now and even bigger things coming up.

How can we fathom building a better country when young people are so politically apathetic? We hit the snooze button as soon as Obama won. Oh, he’s a Democrat he’s in charge he’ll take care of everything no more problems. The ultimate in ignorant and privileged white western automation: let somebody else do the dirty work, the nasty grime of democracy.

Well guess what. The system is fuckin’ broken man. It was broken when we were born, it was broken when we were growing up and now it is still broken as we are adults. When the baby boomer generation reluctantly hands over their power to gen-x and millennials, I want us to have a plan to clean this mess up. It can be done before it’s too late.

I have part of a plan. It’s not great, but it’s something. It’s here. I try to be a person of character and substance and I am also pretty fearless. I have been through enormous tests in my life and have tried to come out stronger and better.

We are in for the fight of our lifetime. We need serious people interested in serious problems beyond the usual hipster dreck. Count me in. I have no problem rolling up my sleeves and getting my hands dirty to fix the problem at the source.
