Step Up And Be Counted

By


The time has come to step up and be counted.
I have nothing particularly against Hillary Clinton other than the fact she sold her soul to protect her philandering husband and struck a deal with the devil to stay by Bill’s side in exchange for his support when she made her inevitable bid for the top job.
But she has to overcome a national backlash over eight years of a Democrat White House with a president swept into office in a flurry of optimism and hope only for usual rules to return and stifle his every effort to bring real change.

Step Up And Be Counted

Stepping Up

The time has come to step up and be counted.

I have nothing particularly against Hillary Clinton other than the fact she sold her soul to protect her philandering husband and struck a deal with the devil to stay by Bill’s side in exchange for his support when she made her inevitable bid for the top job.

But she has to overcome a national backlash over eight years of a Democrat White House with a president swept into office in a flurry of optimism and hope only for usual rules to return and stifle his every effort to bring real change.

The Alternative

The Alternative

So what is the current alternative? Donald Trump?

We all keep saying that it won’t happen, it can’t happen. But I have a message for you, people - it is happening.

Troubling Thoughts

After Super Tuesday, Trump looks more likely than ever before to make one of the most improbable presidential nominees in U.S. history.

It doesn’t look like Ted Cruz is going to stop him, not even after winning the Texas vote and Marco Rubio’s challenge is fast turning to ashes.

If the current system is allowed to continue unchanged, Trump may well be voted president in November. Don’t just take my word for it; Helmut Norpoth, a political science professor at Stony Brook University, says he's "almost certain" it will happen.

What The Future Holds

What The Future Holds

His statistical model predicts that if Trump indeed becomes the Republican nominee he has a 97 percent chance of beating Hillary Clinton in the general election and a 99 percent chance of beating Bernie Sanders.

This country has to take a stand…before it’s too late.

The iCandidate

There was another vote on Super Tuesday and this poll continues until after the weekend.

America is being asked to vote for their three top favorite finalists in The iCandidate, the novel being exclusively serialized on the NoteStream app.

At the moment, the vote is all about choosing the ideal iCandidate for the presidency, but it’s on a political reality show. The result won’t be binding, not yet.

But I put it to you that if you read The iCandidate and follow the progress of the contestants, you will know much more about the character of the eventual iCandidate choice than you can ever hope to know about Trump, Cruz, Clinton, Sanders and co.

Change The Book, Change The Future

Change The Book, Change The Future

This is an example of true democracy in action.

Right now, it’s a book about a reality show about a vote for the President of the USA.

Very soon, it could be a reality show about a vote for the President of the USA.

And then…just a vote for the President of the USA.

We can and must make changes to our presidential selection system right now and we should use The iCandidate as the model.

We can’t keep waiting for Trump to slip up.

iVote Now

I urge you right now to either download the NoteStream app from your app store or if you already have it, catch up on the story so far in The iCandidate: Looking For Heroes.

Then you must read through the 5th Installment and cast your vote for the 3 iCandidates you feel are most suited for the Oval Office.

There is still time to fight for change…but it’s running out fast.

Please, iVote in the app NOW!
