I used to devote all my time to sports photography. I still do some work, principally for USA Basketball, but decided to work in the field of political influence.
During my time as a representative in membership sales for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, I learned the importance of a citizen's being involved directly with their members of congress. Despite all their activities with congressmen and their staff, the Chamber encouraged their members to write to their politicians, using their own company or personal letterhead. The voice of the citizen was that important.
A lobby has its mission, but it is limited. Our government is now unlimited. It is now deciding educational and social issues that affect all our lives. So, I changed my employment from a pure business organization to working with a non-partisan letter writing club that covered all issues. My experience with this club delivered information that opened my eyes to what congress was actually doing and how we are being fooled. But, in time, I questioned the mission of an organization that stood for nothing. Half the members disagreed with the other half, so the net effect was that a letter writing campaign often sent a neutral message to the politicians - no wonder the congressmen loved it!
I then started my own service, using the Constitution as the foundation of any political discourse or influence.
As I learned more about the Constitution's design of government, I realized that it made good sense. Why were people criticizing it's intent? The answer is as old as society itself, people don't understand what is before them. They fear that they will lose to some strange, malevolent forces if they don't seek refuge under some great political figure. The founders saw this coming and warned us of such events and behavior, yet we ignore their warnings. Few people know of these writings.
In my first book, "Initial Points in Politics," I define the initial point of our government. From that point I provide a model that defines right and left. And from there I provide a model to gauge the intensities of political acts. It is unique; I can find no model similar to it in history. It is now replaced by the new book.
The second book, "Arguing for the Constitution in 2012" is named for what it does. It explains why we should go back to a constitutional course of government and why the liberal idea of a "living and breathing" constitution is not only wrong, but destructive for this nation.
In the few talks I have given on this book, I have received compliments on how the system makes sense. It properly charts the differences between the two main political parties and defines the differences in legal terms, not hopey-changey emotional language. Having a blueprint that shows the actual positions of the parties is a great guide in understanding what we have to do to survive, and how far we are off the chartered course of government.
After one of those speeches, I was told that if my book was more like my presentation it would sell millions of copies. So, here it is. By adding more graphics and better illustrations the concept is easier to understand.
