Interests: My lifelong interest and primary hobby is observing social and economic policy and the political games that determine the status of our National System - the way America really works on a day-to-day basis. Currently the State of the Union is "half empty"...
Recent Activity
The President will officially resign from his office in order to activate this Agreement. Immediately thereafter, as Vice President Michael R. Pence will be sworn in as the 46st President of the United States. Continue reading
As I planned to do, I spent all day Tuesday 4-3 and half of Wed 4-4 in Wash., DC at the US Senate office buildings. About 2 1/2 hours by car and Red Line DC Metro down to the Capitol. Went to all 100 Senator's offices and handed their staff a printed copy of the 10-page US Immigration Reform Proposal. Also, to the five (5) US House leaders Ryan, McCarthy, Scalise, Pelosi, and Hoyer. A lot of walking and talking!! Continue reading
PERSPECTIVE: It is 50 years since Martin Luther King was murdered IN COLD BLOOD. Whether We the Citizens of America of any age respect him or not - he stood up for his sub-group of citizens. Politics and special interests seek to divide us for their selfish or ignorant reasons. I firmly believe that We the People must be Americans FIRST! Then whatever else we might like to consider ourselves. Continue reading
I am headed into DC tomorrow and Wednesday. I will go to the offices of all 100 US Senators and deliver a printed copy of our 10-page True Immigration Reform proposal. Continue reading
I felt moved to share this with you all tonight. I rarely speak of this because it is so personal. I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter that celebrates that most holy day in the Christian faith. My faith. And wish all those celebrating the Passover the blessed time in their faith, as well. To all of those that do not have a particular warm and supportive faith in their life, I pray that you will someday find that connection and let it bring peace to you. Continue reading
The day was truly encouraging. So many people of all types and ages. Strollers and Grandparents. I pray that this movement - that these teenagers have created - will continue to grow among people of all ages and across the nation. I hope we can all help them to get 18 to 30 year olds (and older) registered to vote this November. And that we keep the pressure on the members of Congress, mainly Republican, that favor the NRA over common sense gun laws. Continue reading
I will be attending the March For Our Lives tomorrow in DC. If anyone get get there or to one of the many events planned around the nation PLEASE DO!!! Continue reading
The 2nd Edition of the CS2News Report presents a direct and practical response to the shootings at schools and public events in recent times. The proposed Amendment I first posted on the main website www.commonsense2nd.com last year. I have expanded the scope of that draft Amendment to meet this situation. The updated draft is posted on the website under the Amendments option. It will be refined basis public feedback from all parties involved in this important issue. Continue reading
CS2News, is an Internet-based, politically independent news report. It is presented to the American public as a reliable news source by A J Wildman and The Independent Party of America (OurTIPA). The program will develop as we get used to running the show and get a better idea of what the audience wants to find out about. CS2News will provide the public with Perspective, Information and Education on issues effecting our day-top-day lives. Continue reading
In Summary – A person of their own free-will causes the death of one (1) or more people. Their guilt is absolute and beyond any doubt – such in the Parkland tragedy and other mass shootings. They will receive a single standard court trail and will be convicted murder(s) on hard evidence. There will be no consideration for mental illness and no appeal will be granted. Period! Continue reading
This is my first MovOn.org petition!! Check out MoveOn.org. Subject: Obvious Quilt Death Penalty Law Hi, This applies directly to the premeditated tragedy in Parkland, FL on Valentine's Day. All the other dreadful school shootings, Las Vegas, and so on. The Gun industry controls Congress. We must demand justice for the horrid results. I cried as I watched. I develop real solutions. Short video on law https://tinyurl.com/ydaww7af That's why I created a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Donald Trump, which says: "This is a "publicly acceptable" revision to Federal & State...

To be clear, this proposal addresses our overall immigration and population management issues. The current DACA problem is only considered as a side issue, but will be finally dealt with herein. I believe even President Trump could support this approach to confronting the immigration crisis and that the US Congress could quickly legislate it into law. Well over 60% of American citizens will support this balanced and comprehensive approach. Continue reading
On Tuesday January 9, 2018, the American Peasant Party (AP Party) was officially renamed to, The Independent Party of America (TIPA). I created the AP Party in 2011. I liked the name because I believe it spoke to how we the Masses of Americans were and still are actually treated by the dysfunctional US Congress and the those that really pull their strings. Those being the Wealthy and certain Big Industries. I detailed my thoughts on that imbalance in the book, The Second Coming of Common Sense (CS2) that I self-published in February of 2008 (see commonsense2009.typepad.com). Recently, I determined... Continue reading
In 2018, we will first organize the public and interest groups to vote out every Republican member of the US Senate and US House as possible on 11-6-18! It could be easier than you think!! Not that we want a Congress full of Democrats (No). Especially, not with the non-platform they currently have. Continue reading
On Sunday November 19th I completed a paper I had been developing over the last couple of months. It was in response to the growing nuclear crisis between the US and North Korea. My concern is that the US will again give another Kim family dictator a pass, but this time Kim Jong-un could wind up with a deliverable nuclear weapon capability. In the 21-page Peace Plan I challenge the North Korean Military (NKM) to "take Kim out" or, immediately Exile him or, that he must Self-Exile immediately to allow the NKM to assume control of the country. allow the...

In mid-October a reporter, Michel Elben from our paper, The Carroll County Times in Westminster, MD 21157 did an hour long interview with me at our local library. She asked good questions about my wanting ot run for President in 2020 and we discussed my Independent platform. The paper's editor, Wayne Carter decided to run it article on November 2nd on the Front page. Very nice of them to do so. CC Times Article 11-2-2017 Please check it out and pass it on. Remember the primary campaign website wth Independent platform details at www.commonsense2nd.com Continue reading
I began the campaign's Twitter feed last week @OurPOTUS2020. I will be posting Tweets regularly from now on. Will be tweeting about the campaign, meetings, AP Party Chapters, platform proposals, current news issue, the dysfunctional Congress, and some Trump items. Continue reading
These two (2) postings quietly serve as the first public notices of my decision to run an Independent campaign for President of the United States in 2020. That campaign will, in fact, begin now with the obligatory "Exploratory Campaign" activities. Again, I am initiating political activity and actions in October 2017. Continue reading
IF, the election returns continue to go in Trump's favor, he could be the next President. He has destroyed the traditional Republican Party during this campaign. If the Republican Party old guard, that the voters unwisely sent back to the US Congress tonight, does not like Trump and decides to do something about it things could get ugly . Continue reading
Do remember I am a hard-core political Independent and thus make fun of and critic both Democrats and Republicans. I wanted to post something today before the election returns started coming in and We the People found out what our collective response was to this horrid 2016 Presidential and Congressional campaign. Here are a few random points for the sake of some perspective: First, Hillary Clinton is the most qualified person ever to run for President. Donald Trump while probably well-intentioned, is the least informed major party candidate ever to run for President. Ever since Barrack Obama was elected President... Continue reading
This proposal would require all Presidential and Congressional election to have a traditional Primary structure and eliminate the caucus format such as is utilized in states like Iowa. For one reason it would just that standard across the country. Secondly, and most important to me is that it would be private for each person. In a caucus format, people have to literally stand in public and declare their candidate preference. It is not private and the majority of people are not comfortable expressing their political views in public. Continue reading
This proposal is short, but the topic is not very sweet. It speaks to the true spirit of voting rights under our Democracy. This issue concerns what people are somewhat surprised to learn – why some American citizens are not allowed to vote in Federal and lower level elections. Today, by law if an American citizen has been convicted of certain types of more serious crimes e.g., a felony of some sort — then fully serves their court prescribed sentence, and are then returned to society — they are too often not allowed to vote again in Federal and lower level elections. Yes, this is a difficult issue to address, but it is important relative to honestly confronting the civil rehabilitation of some of our fellow citizens. All for one!! Continue reading
This National proposal addresses long-standing and quite avoidable procedural issues regarding our national level elections. These Democratically practical changes could rapidly “trickle down” to state, county, and local level elections, as well. The issues here boil down to date and time! First, the traditional first Tuesday voting date in November will be immediately and permanently moved to the first Saturday in November. This will make it far simpler for more Americans to vote. Continue reading
• Again, this legislation and resulting Amendment is will override the provisions of Citizens United! • We will be considering a $5,000 maximum per individual, per calendar year for a given candidate. • We will be considering a $25,000 maximum per corporate entity, per calendar year for a given candidate. • We will be considering the elimination Super PACs altogether. • There will be no more “dark money”. No undisclosed sources of campaign funds will be allowed. Continue reading
In the first Trimester, abortion on demand will be legal, allowed, and provided in a safe environment for women. In the second Trimester, abortion will be legal and allowed if the Mother’s life is at risk. Or, if it is determined that the fetus is “at risk” and in that situation only the Mother and/or Parents will make the final decision – not any court! And “partial birth” abortion (except to save the Mother’s life) will not be allowed. In the third Trimester, the same criteria will apply as in the second Trimester. Period! Continue reading
