Hello and welcome, Thank you for your support in creating the party of tomorrow, The Peoples Party and putting Dr. Akua Agyeman in the Presidential race.

Our goals are pretty simple.  We are, like you, plain Americans who are interested in providing for our families, living in safe places, protecting our future, and leaving a legacy of hope for our children and grandchildren for tomorrow. 

America is facing some dire challenges and failure to address these challenges and tackle the issues head-on is a recipe for disaster tomorrow.  Failure to plan, it has been said, is a plan to fail.  Unfortunately, this is something that seems to have been forgotten in Washington where the kindergarten game of Tit-for-Tat, seems to be the only game in town. 

I'm sure you are wondering what TPP is all about.  Well, after years of screaming at the TV and watching the men and women we gave our proxy to, sitting in power and doing nothing meaningful and useful with it, I decided to do something about it.  I was sitting there screaming at the TV one day when it occured to me that that is what our founding fathers told us.  We, the People run this country.  We put people in place to speak for us and when they stop speaking for us and start trading deals for their personal gain, it is time to get rid of them.

We have been duped into thinking that the only game in town is to be Republican or Democrat and we have been duped into thinking that this, like genetics is handed down in families, like an inevitability.  We have watched in horror while silly political games aimed at one-upmanship has been played and all the while time ticks on, and the day of reckoning comes ever closer.  

The simple truth is this.  America cannot keep on going the way it is going without coming to an ignominious end...the signs are there...and we can all read it.  Countries are surpassing us, we are no longer respected on the world stage.  We suffer the problems of third world countries, and like third world countries, struggle to correct our problems.  The signs are all there, that we are a nation in decline...BUT, this is not irreversible.  There's still time to make the changes that ensure that we can re-invent ourselves and capture pole position again.  We have the financial powerhouse of Wall Street, the ingenuity of the Technology and Health industries and our manufacturing is unparalleled.  We are the definition of great, when we are playing with a full deck...sadly, right now, we are not, and the people who are charged with fixing the problems that are hurting American interests and its future, are too busy playing party politics and have lost sight of the main goal.  

Imagine going to a ball game and watching the teams punching each other and ignoring the ball.  Satisfying for a good laugh, but if you bet on that game, or your future is riding on that game...not so funny.  This is the position I find myself in, which is why I have decided to answer the call our forefathers put out, that when we didnt like what the people we put there to serve were doing, then we were to fire them and get competent managers to do the job.  

I dont think either the Democrats or the Republicans know what to do...Frankly, many of them are too old, too dyed-in-the-wool, too set in their ways to make any real changes.  They only know the status quo and they grew up in a time of American prosperity and a time when all nations were behind us in every way.  They cannot fight the new battle facing America, simply because they dont even understand the challenges.  So they will do the old things - they will hearken back to the 'good old days', they will 'blame foreigners', they will blame each other, and other parties...but what they will not do, is see the problems for what they are and be willing to make the changes that need to be made to reposition us for the future.

This is where The Peoples Party steps in, and why someone like me, would put up my hand to be counted.

I am not a career politician, just a concerned citizen, like you, who has decided that enough is enough, and the Swamp, truly does need to be drained.  I have realized watching the antics of the last 4 years that the currently elected officials OF BOTH PARTIES, are there to self-enrich, self-aggrandize and to pay NO attention to what we need or what our country truly needs.  Yes, we all want America to be great and if we want it to continue to be great, it is time to clean out the house.

The simple truth is that America IS GREAT.  We just need a few tweaks under the hood.  Like an old Cadillac, it needs a tune-up, a new paint job and attention to keeping its parts lubricated to keep on running.  Unfortunately, it's not getting that from this crop of vultures sitting in the halls of power, pretending and paying lip service to serving their country.  

I have no ax to grind, I'm not interested in being a politician. Like many of you, I find that my life is enriched and I can go about my life doing the things I like to do, when my country is ticking along on well-oiled springs.  When the springs rust, my life comes to a crashing halt.  As our fore-fathers reminded us, this is OUR country, so I have decided that rather than scream at the TV at fools that we have elected, who are doing what they want and driving OUR country into the toilet, I need to get up, dust myself off, stop talking and start doing something about it.  

So, here I am, a middle-aged doctor, entrepreneur, social capitalist who believes that we are our brothers' keeper, that we shouldn't do unto others what we wouldn't like to have done to us, who believes in hard work, discipline, fair wages and healthcare and believes in true 'law and order', -  not that tired overused phrase that means so little.  I believe in teaching our kids to respect their elders, each other, the police and the military, and to bring back good behavior, in schools, the workplace, and at play, and to go back in time to the concept of 'good citizenship'.  These are the real components of 'law and order' that allows our police to get back to the job of 'service', not 'discipline'.  

I think the environment is important and climate change is real.  Yes, we need to find and fund alternate energy sources, as other countries are doing, before we find ourselves to be the last oil holdout...and while this idea may be unpopular to oil-men, it is the future, that is where the world is heading and we can be ahead of the game, or get dragged in last, kicking and screaming, and losing...

I am a solution-focused person.  I do not play the blame-game, and I don't have time for trading insults. That does not get any work done.  I am pragmatic and ethical and not afraid to 'call a spade a spade'.  I will work with anyone who actualizes those principles, black/white/brindle; democrat or republican.  There is a job that needs doing and I want to get to doing it.

If these are principles appeal to you and you want to be part of the solution, then join me in The People's Party, where we put the PEOPLE first, and ourselves last.

School Police Force

https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-02-16/lausd-diverting-school-police-funds-support-black-students

 

In a move to satisfy the views of the day, schools are moving to defund the police force in schools.  Im sure there are many of both sides of the fence on this issue and again, it is not as Black and White as you will be forced to believe.  On one hand, it is clear from the multiple school shootings that there is a clear and present danger in schools today of the likelihood of being shot by a disgruntled student with access to guns.  The knee-jerk reaction to that was logically, to put the police into schools as a deterrent.  The unexpected side effect from that now is that we have armed police treating school kids as criminals when they are being kids, getting into trouble, fighting etc and using the techniques taught to subdue violent criminals on teenagers behaving badly, even sometimes shooting to kill unarmed kids, which has therefore created a backlash and so resulted in another knee-jerk reaction - defund the school police force.

There are many solutions to this problem that does not require excessive armed force presence and there is a kinder gentler way of policing that emphasizes cooperation rather than confrontation. 

One of the first things that can be done to reduce the threat of school shootings is to redesign how students enter the campus, and to have checkpoints that ensure that guns cannot get on campus.  Rather than a confrontational police presence, we could emphasize psychiatric presence, ramping up on our treatment of depression, anxiety, explosive anger issues and address some of the overarching themes that face students that cause them to behave in this way.  For example, it has been shown in studies that teaching students, particularly from disadvantaged backgrounds yoga and meditation, helps them cope with anger.  Teaching them how to express rage and anger in more constructive ways and teaching them not to respond in anger to situations teaches self-regulation, a skill that will be required as they grow up and learn that bad behavior is not rewarded in the adult world.  

These are skills usually taught in functioning families by parents and in functioning close-knit communities by the larger community, church and in social gatherings.  In inner cities, rage, anger and fighting is a survival skills for the mean streets, and this spills over into schools.  Addressing this greater socioeconomic problem with REAL long-lasting solutions is much better than the knee-jerk "punishment" oriented model of 'get the cops in' to meet fire-with-fire.

The 'investment' of teaching these kids how to constructively manage their emotions has long-lasting consequences both in the school, as well as in the communities they will inhabit in the future.  Costs net out evenly.  Having all entrants to the school going through a checkpoint to catch any weapons will stop the weapons getting on the grounds, a small security force, will quell any physical violence.  Mandatory participation in mindfulness and meditation will yield long-term mental resilience and channelling that anger into constructive avenues will teach them how to behave, if they havent learnt this at home.

Starting them young and implementing this from 1st grade means having children already primed to behave by the time they reach the more aggressive teens.  This is education oriented at problem-solving.  We cant change our society today, but we can put the process in place to change it tomorrow.

Does this Matter to You

http://https//www.politico.com/news/2021/02/15/poll-trump-impeachment-conviction-469051#

 This is the sort of information that passes for news these days.  News is a good thing.  But today's media is more of a fireside chat style opinion-fest and less of a non-partisan, unbiased discussion of the issues facing us.  Here are the real facts as we all know it.  Like Trump or hate him, he is a crook, a liar, and a seditionist.  Those are the facts.  He was aided by Russian in 2016, and 2020, tried to buy Ukraine's assistance against domestic foes, and was a terrorist to American interests for 4 years while enriching himself, his family and his cronies.   Why then do his supporters like him???

Because they like what he stood for....something they were crying out for.  SOMEONE TO TAKE ON THE ESTABLISHMENT and DO THE WORK THAT NEEDS DOING!!!!

Many Trumpists actually are very well aware of the 'feet of clay' of their leader that goes all the way to the neck, unfortunately, the message that they tried to tell the 'liberals' was not heard.  They don't care what the BS issues are...they dont care how many women their leaders fondled, what illegitimate children they have, which of their friends are crooked...what they care about, is WHAT THAT LEADER IS DOING FOR THEIR ISSUES...and Trump, while completely useless, 'appeared' to give them what they were looking for.

Yes, while it appears on the surface, that all Trump supporters were 'white supremacists' or 'Armageddonists', that is merely the fringe element that exists in each party.  Democrats have theirs too - the super liberal left tree-hugger contingent, who are just as extremist.  By and large, the moderate center of the Republican party stuck with Trump, because the alternative was to go Democrat.  What they really wanted was for the noise to stop and for REAL issues to be addressed.  Similarly, the Christian Republican - likes Family First, thinks abortion should be addressed, and that Law and Order is important...  They also knew, their candidate was a poor choice, but given that the Democrats don't speak for them, they also were stuck with a man they knew was a poor choice.  

The same issues play out in the Democratic party, American Dems by and large, want jobs to pay living wages, they want clean air, safe streets, equality for all, and tolerance in our country.  They want a safety net for the unfortunate among us, and healthcare that is affordable and universal. Again, these are issues that are relevant to ALL AMERICANS, so why the great divide.

The strange separation is a false separation created because the current 2-party system serves the needs of lobyyists and businesses.  By having you think that the real choice is DEM or REP, they have you focusing on party loyalties, rather than the issues you want the parties to focus on.  By getting Americans to focus on For PARTY or AGAINST PARTY, they are free to plunder the nation, and enrich themselves and the special interests that finance them, while failing to do ANY real work to address the issues that matter to the American people.  Politics is now less about the real issues and more about Party affiliation. 

 

When did America become Russia or China...and how does this make us GREAT or DEMOCRATIC, or FREE!!!!! 

The PEOPLES PARTY was founded on the principles that affect ALL AMERICANS.  I am neither Democrat nor Republican...I am a liberal conservative...which means I draw from both parties issues.  I believe in law and order and equality.  I believe in immigration reform, but believe in immigration.  I believe in capitalism whole-heartedly, but also in wage relief, lower taxes and that everyone should pay their proportionate share.  I also believe in less government and fiscal responsibility, as should everyone who has ever run a budget...

I dont pretend to have all the answers, but assure you, that there will BE answers...and any efforts of the swamp dwellers to stop TRUE REAL CHANGE for Americans will be met with extreme resistance.  I am there for the PEOPLE, not lobbyist, not self-interests, and not rich folk who dont care what legacy they leave the rest of us to inherit...

Joint the PEOPLES PARTY for real CHANGE.
