We the People Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“The cabinet of We The People came up with the following solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict:

(1) Establish Jerusalem and Tel Aviv as international cities protected forever by a military force of the United Nations, or NATO.

(2) Open up the borders of the USA and other like minded countries to unlimited immigration of all Israelis, so inclined.

(3) In the remainder of the territory, establish an internationally recognized Palestinian State including the Gaza Strip, the West Bank et al.

This solution is based on the fact that Israel’s approximately 9 million people are surrounded by hundreds of millions of Arab Citizens.

The only way to protect Israelis long term is to protect Jerusalem and Tel Aviv by international force as international cities.”

Mission:

“We the People, in order to create a more perfect Union; to enhance Justice; to provide for the Common Defense; to ensure Domestic Tranquility; to promote the general well-being of all the people; and to guarantee Liberty and Freedom for ourselves and our Children;

Do hereby establish We The People, America’s third party of the moderate majority, because:

Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln each founded successful New Political Parties when ‘The Party System’ of their time no longer served the best interests of the People; there are thus two historical precedents for New Parties Winning the Presidency; and

Too much money has corrupted the Democratic and Republican Parties which have become Parties Of, by, and for the Special Interests and the Political Insiders, who are more concerned about gaining power via character assassination of their opponents, than doing the right thing for our country; therefore, we need a Party which promotes public financing of all Congressional and Presidential elections.

The Democratic Party is in danger of being controlled by the Left Wing and the Republican Party by the Right Wing, thus creating a political vacuum in the ‘sensible center’ for a Party of the moderate majority;

‘Everybody is organized but the people’;

We need to renew our greatness as a nation by going back to our roots and to the first principles contained in our Constitution and The Declaration of Independence. And in order to fulfill the historical promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, We The People do proudly Re-Pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”
