U.S. Political, Economic and Social Evolution
- By Bahram Maskanian
In order to evolve out of and remove our current Republican and Democrat (Republicrats) tyrannical and criminal imperialistic political, economic and social shackles, first we need to get an accurate perspective, that: in reality Republicans and Democrats are the two wings of the same brutal bird of prey.
The said brutal bird of prey consists of one tenth of one percent (0.01%) of the United States and the European populations. The said (0.01%) of the European and American Monarchy wants all there is for free, including all of our persons and our labor for nothing and would do all that it can in secrecy, to plunder and get what it wants.
The European Union of Nation-Less Corporations and the United States of Nation-Less Corporations have successfully dumb down millions of people and destroyed any and all social upward mobility chances, replacing it with a dismal downward slavery and misery.
We, the people, have all one thing in common, we are the (99.99%) ninety nine point nine, nine percent of the U.S. population, victimized and constantly plundered and held back by the one tenth of one percent (0.01%) criminal, greedy, narcissistic bastards, owners and operators of the Nation-less Corporations. We, the people, will no longer tolerate the massive corruption of the 0.01% percent.
Why Nation-Less Corporation and not Multi Nationals:
Multi-National is a euphemistic and highly misleading phrase, implying that a Multi-National Corporation, operating in multiple of countries, is responsive and loyal to multiple of nations. We all know nothing could be further from the truth.
All potential candidates for public office should sign a binding pledge to support the following:
A potential and ideal Presidential candidate and all people’s representatives should be an ethical, caring, loving, analytical thinker, honorable, independent, knowledgeable, compassionate, pragmatic, visionary person, a unifying strong, uncompromising leader and administrator, a woman / man of reason and common sense, capable of speaking honestly, correctly and eloquently to inspire, enlighten, educate and lead the American people to a cooperative path of peace, equality and prosperity for all.
We, The American People, Demand And Want:
The kind of President, Vice-President and Congress / people’s representative who love and respect their fellow citizens.
A President, Vice-President and Congress who would never do anything to harm anyone in order to gain power and popularity among the greedy criminal elites.
President and Congress who would STOP: the Ghettoization of the United States culture, public education, and society.
A President and Congress who would STOP: the Wal-Martization of the United States economy and job market.
A President and Congress who would CHANGE: The United States of Nation-Less Corporations, to the United States of America.
A President and Congress who would live-by and honor the simple life saving policy of: “Do unto others, as we wish to be done on to us.”
A President and Congress who would do the honorable act by passing a long over due gender equality law, mandating that an equal number of female and male senators and representatives to be elected to serve in U.S. Congress. Making it mandatory to elect 1 female and 1 male senator from each state, and for every 200,000 citizens, 1 female and 1 male representative to be elected for U.S. House of Representatives. In short the 500 members of U.S. Congress should consist of 250 female and 250 male senators and representatives, only then we can proudly boast about human rights and gender equality in the United States.
A President and Congress who would STOP: the ongoing ravages and slaughter of Globalization. All large economies such as China, India and others have big enough markets of their own and they do not need to be drowning ours here in the United States with their slave labor made products.
A President and Congress who would build a strong cooperative manufacturing base economy right here in the U.S.
A President and Congress who would STOP: the ongoing devastations of Global Warming and Global Warring, through developing a strong renewable energy policy and directives for the whole country.
A President and Congress who would STOP: the Arms Race madness, which American government started in 1950s. And STOP: spending over $820 billion a year, in total-including: wars, 800 military bases around the world, nuclear weapons stockpiles, defense commodities: munitions, bombs, etc., and any other tools design to destroy and murder as many human beings as possible, military and armaments aid to brutal tyrannical regimes, and other military related accounts, which in reality are enriching a group of greedy, murdering, criminal, warmongering and fascist nation-less corporation’s goons and their share holders.
The United States became the first country in the world to use nuclear weapons, when U.S. bombed the two major Japanese cities of: Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. It is the United States moral and humanitarian obligation to STOP: this insane nuclear weapons race built up and stockpiling and put an end to this madness once and for all.
A President and Congress who would STOP: the Arms Race Scheme, and begin an Art, Culture, Goodwill, Science and Education Race instead.
A President and Congress who would STOP: and permanently CLOSE the revolving doors between the Nation-less Corporations and the United States Government, stopping the on going executive exchange program between the two.
A President and Congress who would STOP: and permanently CLOSE all illegal covert and overt operations, design for meddling in other countries internal affairs and regime changes.
A President and Congress who would STOP: ALL Lobbyists, and recognize Lobbyists and Lobbyist's conducts as what they really are: a highly treasonous act, carried out by the criminal sellout politicians and nation-less corporate goons.
A President and Congress who would honor, promote and follow the true democratic values and principles, leading by examples of true democratic rule of law, racial harmony and true gender equality here at home. Only then others will be inspired to follow our leads.
Non-Violent Social Uprising
Any non-violent social uprising movement requires a plan of action, a platform, a list of constructive demands to be implemented. The 99.09% movement in order to succeed, relieving the country out of the current criminal elitist billionaires and their Republican and Democrat (Republicrats) tyrannical parliamentary dictatorship regime, and evolve into a true democracy, democratic rule of law, democratic values and principles, the following Ballot Initiatives must be put on the ballot for the 2012 election for all Americans to vote on choosing their democratic governing system.
And if I may borrow a phrase from President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address: "We shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth".
Referendum is the one and only non-violent means of constructive and positive reform, to facilitate a new birth of freedom, and evolving out of our current parliamentary dictatorship. There is no other way.
Definition of Referendum:
Referendum is the submission of a proposed political, economic, and or public measure for direct popular vote by the citizens of the country. Referendum is the process of submitting an actual statute for public approval to become the law of the land, requiring direct majority popular vote.
Referendum is the process of putting the control of lawmaking and legislating highly sensitive and very important decrees, or legislations; such as: conflict authorization, war declarations, enacting tax laws, ratifying constitution and so on, directly into the hands of the public, the owners of the country, the people.
Referendum is an absolute inalienable right of the people given by Mother Nature to decide and determine their own political destiny and economic path, the future of the country, issues far too important, complicated and crucial to be decided by hand full of corrupt members of parliament and government officials.
Referendum is an absolute inalienable right of the people to choose anew and change the direction of their country, the process of bypassing all government branches all together to mandate a new beginning, such as a new constitution voted on directly, by the owners of the country, the people.
Referendum - Ballot Initiatives

All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress must participate with the American people and Social Security may not be used for any other purpose.
All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are null and void effective January 01, 2012. We, the American people did not make this contract. Congress members: Congressmen / women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned CITIZEN legislators, therefore, all current Congressmen / women should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
Ratifying the United States Constitution is an easy task provided there is enough public pressure applied. Case and point is the 26th amendment: "Granting the right to vote for 18 years old Americans." It took only 3 months and 8 days to be ratified, because people demanded it. - That was in 1971, before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the U.S. Constitution, seven (7) of them took one (1) year or less to become the law of the land, all because of public pressure.
Ratifying the United States Constitution requires two third (2/3) of the States approval in order to go into effect among the States, as a federal law of the land. BUT, if the above Ballot Initiatives are placed on all fifty states ballots, or more than the required two third (2/3) of the states, after passage by two third (2/3) of the states, or more, U.S. Constitution will be emended successfully and the nation will have what we all fought for and suffer through soon after the 2012 election conclusion.
The approval of the above positive, vital and constructive Ballot Initiatives are absolutely necessary in order to have a chance of establishing a true democracy, a grass-root all encompassing democracy in the United States, replacing the criminal elitist Republican and Democrat (Republicrats) tyrannical regime, and begin a new exciting journey in American history.
We must facilitate the passing of the above Ballot Initiatives into laws of the land and take the power back from the corrupt elite, or nothing will ever change, and the police state shackles shall continue to get tighter and tighter.
“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will.” - Frederick Douglass
As a Persian-American man, I have already lived through and felt the anguish and the pain of losing my birth country, family and my loved ones, due to the American orchestrated and financed 1953 coup d'état in Iran, followed again by the Islamic coup d'état of 1979 in Iran, staged and financed by the U.S., causing unimaginable mayhem, wars, millions murdered, maimed and displaced, destruction, plunder of the Iranian wealth, natural and human resources (brain drainage) for over 100 years. I do not wish that on anyone, and would not want to see any other people / nations to go through what I, and the Iranian / Persian people have suffered and continue to suffer through.
