IF YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM, YOU CANNOT BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

It is not necessarily true that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

But it is certainly true that if you are part of the problem, you cannot be part of the solution.

So if you are part of the mass addiction to mobile devices (cellphones, iPhones, and smartphones), you cannot be part of the solution to the problem of the mass addiction to mobile devices.

And if you are part of the mass dependence on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, LinkedIn, et al.), you cannot be part of the solution to the problem of the mass dependence on social media.

And if you are part of the mass devotion to political parties and factions (Democratic, Republican, et al.), you cannot be part of the solution to the problem of the mass devotion to political parties and factions.

If you are part of the problem, you cannot be part of the solution.

LET’S DO IT

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

And no person shall be eligible to the Office of President who has not chosen to be completely independent of, and unaffiliated with, any and all political parties and factions.

Of course that last requirement for eligibility for the Office of President of the United States is not in our Constitution.  But Congress can put it there–our Congress can add that requirement as an amendment to our Constitution.

But of course our Congress will not pass that amendment unless we force it to do so–because our Congress is filled with self-serving Democrats and Republicans.

And we can force it to do so–we have the power to force the hand of our Congress.  If enough U.S. citizens abandon both the Democratic and Republican Parties by simply changing their voting statuses or preferences to Independent–thus joining the ranks of us proud independents who have already done so–they can help us force the hand of Congress to pass an amendment to the Constitution of the United States adding the requirement for eligibility for the Office of President of the United States that the President be completely independent of, and unaffiliated with, any and all political parties and factions.

Provided that President Trump doesn’t start a nuclear war before he is removed from office by Congress, we have four years to do this.

Let’s do it.

DON’T BLAME ME, I VOTED FOR NEITHER

Well, I guess I owe an apology to those who voted for Donald Trump in the Republican primaries–he could defeat Hillary Clinton.

And I can proudly state that I voted for neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump–in fact, I cast a write-in vote for an unknown independent presidential candidate named Scott W. Mayo.

Donald Trump cannot serve as President of the United States for four years without starting a global thermonuclear war–directly or indirectly. Mike Pence can. Therefore, it is imperative that Congress come up with a reason to impeach President Trump, and remove him from office–as soon as possible after he takes office–so that Vice President Mike Pence can take his place.

I have already contacted Senator Marco Rubio (for whom I did not vote) and Congressman Matt Gaetz (for whom I did vote)–urging each to vote for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and his removal from office, as soon as the opportunity arises.

And if you want to keep from going up in radioactive smoke, I highly suggest that you contact your senator and congressman/congresswoman with the same appeal.

Maybe this victory for Donald Trump is just the kick-in-the-ass that Digital-Age Americans need to convince them that they are indeed personally responsible for their government–at the federal, state, and local levels.

Maybe this is a wake-up call for you–if you are a citizen of the United States of America–to do three things:

Abandon the political party that has betrayed your trust–Democratic or Republican–and change your voting status to Independent.

Get rid of your Digital-Age pacifier (your cellphone, iPhone, or smartphone)–and get a landline phone.

Close your Facebook and/or Twitter account–and start a blog if you want to get your message across.

And don’t blame me, I voted for neither.
