Additional Considerations ​


Verifiable Elections


In a Republic, candidates often say one thing in a campaign, and then do the opposite when they are elected and in power, where they get bribed by thousands of lobbyists in secret. In a majority rule Democracy, however, secrecy and bribery will be illegal and the term of an elected official will likely be determined by the majority of citizens who elected the official. As such, elected officials in a Democracy will truly become the servants of the People, and the Congress will then be operated like the U.S. Armed Forces, as will the national non-profit health care and educational systems. 


Most people now believe that because elections are held, that makes a Republic a Democracy, but elections, are often manipulated in many countries, including the U.S., especially since computerized voting machines were introduced as an alternative to the hanging-chad chaos of the punch card voting machines that were used in Florida in the 2000 presidential campaign.  And with the existing computer voting systems now used in 42 states, votes can not cannot possibly know who won the election.


While many countries like Canada still use inexpensive and easily verifiable paper ballots that are collected and counted in public, typically with the news media present, the Bush administration provided millions of dollars to voting districts in 42 states to purchase expensive computerized voting machines from right-wing private corporations like Diebold, that as part of their contract had no federal or state oversight over their counting the votes in secret.  After the 2004 election, however, an independent audit in Oho showed that the voter-memory card totals failed to match electronic voting machine ballot tallies in more than one quarter of the samples checked in the state’s most populous county.  And after a similar investigation in California, its Secretary of State, Kevin Shelly, called Diebold's activities in that state "fraudulent" and "deceitful," and banned the use of the Diebold touch screen “E-machines” until they could be proven to meet security standards.  So much for free and fair elections.


However, even if verifiable and inexpensive paper ballots are used, there is a long and sad history of candidates, like George W. Bush and Barack Obama, who make campaign pledges and promises, but once they get elected, they simply ignore their promises, and the voters have no real power to hold the elected officials accountable.


All of this will change once the Democracy amendment is ratified, whereby the majority of American citizens will ultimately determine policy and not oil and coal company lobbyists, and the tens of thousands of other lobbyists who represent foreign corporations and the tiny number of super rich individuals and families who can afford to hire them.  This is why the greatest transfer of wealth in history has been allowed to take place, and such "Robin Hood in Reverse" policies have devastated the Middle Class by a reducing the value of the U.S. dollar by over 90 percent just 1970, while middle class wages have declined every year since 1973.


While the so called “free trade” policies that have been imposed by the corporate lobbyists have increased corporate profits, these highly destructive and reckless policies have contaminated and de-industrialized the USA and resulted in the an explosion of slave labor conditions abroad.  This has transformed China into an economic and military superpower, while allowing unknown millions of illegal immigrants to displace Americans workers.  As Harry Braun stated in his Congressional Campaign against John McCain in 1984, U.S. Trade Policy should be focused on bringing foreign wages and environmental standards up to U.S. standards, but the so-called unregulated "free market" system  was only concerned about increasing profits.


Immigration Considerations


Overpopulation is a major factor that is making the Earth uninhabitable, and yet under the current absurd interpretation of the 14th Amendment, the children of illegal immigrants are allowed to become American citizens, in spite of the fact that the 14th Amendment states that children born in the USA are only citizens if the U.S. Government has "jurisdiction" over their parents, which is why the children of foreign Ambassadors who are born in the USA are not U.S. citizens.  Thus if an individual illegally enters the USA and has children, the child is obviously not a U.S. citizen. And the real reason for concern is the out of control overpopulation problem that is ignored by the President, the U.S. Congress and all of the presidential candidates.


​The press has reported for years that there are some 11 million illegal immigrants now in the U.S., but no one can possibly know if the real number is  50 million or 150 million because no federal or state agency asks for such information -- in spite of the fact that such citizenship status could easily be acquired when a person signs up for utility services in the U.S., which was proposed by Arizona attorney Barry Wong when he was a candidate for the Arizona Corporation Commission.  Moreover, Canada does not have an immigration problem because Canada refuses to provide financial or medical support for non-citizens.  Consider the graph below.


The Population Explosion 
One of the core elements of the Earth's 6th Mass Extinction Event

































Harry Braun's Independent Presidential Campaign

is focused on ratifying the Democracy Amendment he has proposed

before the next unverified election in November of 2016.

​​

Harry Braun has organized his 2016 Democratic Presidential Campaign as a Constitutional Convention in order to change the USA from being a bribery-based oligarchic Republic to a majority-rule Democracy that will make government secrecy and bribery illegal, by using the  Article V Citizen Ballot  that can be downloaded from this website to both pass and ratify the Democracy Amendment  ​long before ​the next unverified elections are held in 2016.  Details are on also on the BraunforPresident.US website  ​












​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The staggering problems that have resulted from the bribery-based American Republic have been well documented in the scientific literature as well as in the cover stories above by Time, including the unnecessary oil-induced Poisoning of America and Global Climate Change that represents two of the major factors that are causing the Earth's 6th Mass Extinction event, which is now in its final exponential stages.  The 3-billion-year-old global ocean ecosystem has been destroyed by the Oil Age in one generation, which is why there is a genuine sense of urgency for the majority of American citizens who are registered voters need to take action now, while there is hopefully still time to make a difference.


The USA Has Never Been A Democracy


The vast majority of Americans believe the USA is already a Democracy because they hear it daily from the President and elected officials from both political parties, as well as so-called journalists.  But as Harry Braun points out, this Orwellian misinformation is easy to reveal.  No Supreme Court interpretation is needed because as any dictionary can verify, the USA has never been a Democracy because it is and always has been a bribery-based Republic, which is not majority rule, but rule by the tiny few of elected officials and political parties who are bribed in secret by literally thousands of lobbyists.​ 


As a result, this Republican "representative" form of government is based on voters giving all of their political power to elected officials in unverifiable elections, who are then bribed in secret by thousands of lobbyists.  A Democracy is fundamentally different because the majority of voters, which are a Universal Mind" of millions of people, keep their political power for when it is needed most to approve or oppose all laws and judicial decisions that affect their lives.


Given this insight, the so-called Democrats in the Democratic Party are really Republicans, who simply call themselves democrats.  But the result is the same, whereby a tiny handful of wealthy individuals and corporations from the Oil Industrial Complex (which includes the major mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, banking and media corporations) who all bribe candidates, Members of Congress, State Legislators, Judges and attorney generals into believing there are no alternatives to mass producing and using ever increasing amounts of oil and other highly-toxic fossil and nuclear fuels that are rapidly making the Earth uninhabitable.


Given the Supreme Court has now ruled that money (i.e., bribery) equals free speech, this is reason enough to ratify the Democracy Amendment with wartime-speed, so the majority of citizens can overrule this absurd judicial ruling, as well as a long list of others, including the one that defines corporations as people.  This is why the corporations pay the fines, or are otherwise held legally responsible, and not the executives who committed the crimesAnd if the fines are too steep, the corporation simply goes out of existence and a "new" corporation is formed by the same executives to take its place.  


The lobbyists even wrote laws that allow corporations to be exempt from damages from the trillions of dollars of health care costs from over 100,000 unregulated and untested toxic chemicals that are now in the blood of every man, woman and child worldwide, including the unborn who soak in a withes brew of poisons from the point of conception.  Medical professor John Gofman said only one word came to mind regarding such global chemical and radiological contamination of an entire planet for profit, and that word was Nuremberg.  However, as a practical matter, such trials will never take place without the ratification of the Democracy Amendment with the Article V Citizen Ballot on this website.


Oil billionaires are financially backing key members of both political parties, who are elected in unverifiable easily hacked computer elections with votes counted in secret by private corporations like ES&S.  This is why the major policies of George W Bush were the same as those of Barack Obama.  Fareed Zakaria, a PhD in political science, a highly respected host on CNN's Global Public Square program, regularly refers to the USA as a Democracy, and in one broadcast, he referred to India as the world’s largest and oldest Democracy.  


​This is simply not the case, because India, like the United States, is not a Democracy at all, but a Republic, as are the countries of China, Russia, North Korea, Syria and Israel. As such, the world's largest and oldest operating Democracy is Switzerland, whose Democratic Constitution was formalized in the year 1291.  Braun repeatedly emailed Zakaria and his executive producer about this obvious mistake, as well as the other error Zakaria made when he proclaimed that there was no energy alternative to fossil fuels and fracking, which is merely repeating oil industry propaganda.  Zakaria refused to respond to Braun's emails, nor did he ever correct the record regarding his statements regarding fossil fuels, or the fact that India is not a Democracy.   


Christiane Amanpour, another highly respected CNN journalist, made a similar mistake when she referred to Israel as a Democracy.  This was an especially interesting comment because Christiane and others have stated that the majority of Israeli citizens did not support their government’s settlement policy on Arab lands, which  is the primary factor that is preventing any fundamental reconciliation between the Israelis and the Palestinians and other Arabs in the Middle East.  It is why the definitions of words are indeed important.  Indeed, defining terms is the first step in critical thinking skills.


Harry Braun's Independent Presidential Campaign


​Other than Bernie Sanders, none of the existing presidential candidates have even mentioned the energy, economic and environmental State of Emergency that now

exists worldwide -- much less what actions need to be taken now.  This is why Harry Braun has specifically organized his Independent Presidential Campaign as an Article V Constitutional Convention in all 50 states to both pass and ratify the following 28-word Article V Amendment for Democracy as the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:


"We the People, hereby empower the majority of American citizens
to approve all laws, federal legislation, presidential executive orders and
 judicial decisions that impact the majority of citizens."


While the existing lobbyist-based Congress would never introduce, much less pass such a Democracy Amendment, Article V  ​of the U.S. Constitution allows citizens to bypass the Congress when necessary to pass & ratify amendments in what are referred to as state "Constitutional Conventions."  


Given this insight, Harry Braun has prepared and published the Article V Citizen Ballot that can be downloaded at no cost as a verifiable paper ballot at no cost from this Democracy Amendment USA website. And as per Article V of the U.S. Constitution, when a majority of voters in three-fourths of the states (i.e. 38 states) mail their completed Article V Citizen Ballots to their Secretary of State, where they can be verified, counted and archived as verifiable paper ballots, the amendment will then ratified, at which point it becomes law.  


Similar verifiable and convenient paper ballot systems can then be used for all future U.S. elections, as well as the approval of all laws that impact the majority of voters.  Encrypted voter apps for computer systems will allow voting to take place in real-time in the not too-distant future, but given the significance of ratifying the Democracy Amendment in 2016, a completely verifiable paper ballot is the gold standard.   


It is important to note that none of the existing U.S. national elections are verifiable, which makes them invalid.  Indeed, the vast majority of votes are counted in secret with no federal or state oversight by a highly-partisan private corporation, Election Systems & Software (ES&S).  As Joseph Stalin once observed: "Its not the voters who count, but who counts the votes."


Once the Democracy Amendment is ratified, all political power will be transferred from the lobbyists and the elected officials they bribe, to the majority of American citizens who are registered voters, as per the 14th Amendment, who will then become decision makers rather than unformed observers. 


The United States Citizens Congress


The majority will then be empowered to form the new U.S. Citizens Congress (USCC), which will then be operated like the U.S. Navy while being governed by a "Universal Mind" of over 60 million citizens.  It will then be possible make government secrecy, lobbying and other forms of bribery illegal, after which all things will then be possible, including chaos unless the majority is aware of the many interrelated and important insights that are provided in Braun's Presidential Campaign Briefing Document.  


With transparent majority rule, it will be possible to implement Braun's Phoenix Project

5-year plan to replace all of the highly-toxic, climate changing, rapidly diminishing and water-intensive fossil and nuclear fuels and chemicals with solar-sourced hydrogen made from cannabis crops, which are four times more efficient than corn, as well as directly from water with electricity generated from less than three million two megawatt wind-powered hydrogen production systems, that are no more difficult to mass-produce that the over 17 million automobiles sold in the U.S. annually.  Indeed, 17 million two megawatt wind hydrogen production systems would permanently displace all of fossil and nuclear fuels worldwide.


Such solar and wind-powered hydrogen production technologies were developed in the 1800's, thus no research and development is necessary, and the hydrogen electrolytic production technology has been in the public domain for nearly 200 years  As such, the the highly-toxic Oil and Nuclear Age that is in the final stages of making the Earth uninhabitable was never necessary,it was just highly-profitable for the Oil Industrial Complex.  


For over 30 years, Braun has been an Advisory Board Member of the world's largest and most respected hydrogen and scientific engineering society, the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (iahe.org), and as Henry Ford demonstrated in the 1920's, the least expensive hydrogen and/or ethanol was made from cannabis, which was half the cost of gasoline.  Ford's scientists also used non-toxic and completely biodegradable automotive plastics that were made from cannabis seeds that were 10 times stronger than steel.


Shifting from a Solar Cannabis Age to a Highly-Toxic Oil Age


Henry Ford’s Cannabis Cars were part of a Cannabis Economy that is graphically shown in a BBC sourced documentary on Youtube: The True History of Marijuana. But the oil industry lobbyists responded by changing the name of cannabis to an unknown Mexican slang term, “Marihuana" (spelled with an "h") and called it a “new” dangerous drug that lobbyists secretly made illegal in 1937 with no recorded vote in either the House or Senate, nor without the constitutional amendment that was required to prohibit alcohol, and over the objections of Henry Ford and the American Medical Association, whose  testimony is online.


It is now known that the THC in cannabis is a 500 million-year old neurotransmitter that

has redefined the science of neurology, but the oil and chemical industry lobbyists secretly erased the true history of cannaibs in United States in classic Orwellian fashion.  Nor was Barack Obama the first president to consume cannabis, because according to their farm journals that are now in the National Archives (which were fortunately not deleted) it is known that George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were all consumers and major growers of cannabis, and they all viewed cannabis as a strategically important crop, as did virtually all other human civilizations worldwide for over 12,000 years.

 But by making cannabis illegal in 1937, the “Oil Industrial Complex” was able to generate enough wealth to bribe governments worldwide, and determine the priorities and national energy and environmental policies of the White House, the U.S. Congress, State Legislatures, the Pentagon, and both political parties, while also acquiring major pharmaceutical and news corporations as well as the major Wall Street banks -- all of which completely ignore the 6th Mass-Extinction event in the Earth’s 4 billion-year-old history, which is in large part being caused by the highly-toxic Oil and Nuclear Age.


Hillary the Fracking Queen


As reported in the Washington Post (February 18, 2015), Hillary Clinton has demonstrated that gender is irreverent when it comes to secretly negotiating nearly $2 billion in "donations" (i.e., bribes) that she and Bill secured for the Clinton Family Foundation from multinational oil and uranium companies. This is why as Secretary of State her major “accomplishments” involved promoting the highly-toxic Global Oil Shale (i.e., fracking) Initiative for Halliburton, Exxon and Chevron,  from oil barons worldwide, which involved starting the latest "oil wars" in Ukraine and the Middle East.  


As such, it is easy to understand why Hillary refused to use official U.S. State Department servers, as she enabled the completely unnecessary contamination of trillions of gallons of precious water, which is injected underground where it will be diffusing and poisoning aquifers and humans worldwide for eons, while potentially causing earthquakes that could trigger an overdue catastrophic supervolcanic eruption in Mammoth, California and Yellowstone – and all for a resource that will only last a few years.  According to the Associated Press and Inspector General, over a billion emails were generated by the state department in just 2011, yet less than one tenth of one percent (i.e., only 61,156) were provided to the state department while Hillary was promoting the interests of toxic oil and gas corporations worldwide. 

Hillary is now under investigation for her secret email accounts that illegally circumvented the U.S. State Department she was supposedly working for, the national news media has not reported that when Hillary Rodham was a 27-year old staff attorney working for the U.S. House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation, she was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman, who in a published interview referred to Hillary as
“a liar who was unethical, dishonest, and conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the Committee, and the rules of confidentiality.” 

But in Washington DC and State Legislatures, this is business as usual, which why vast quantities of chemical poisons that now arrive in the wind and rain are in the blood of every man, woman and child worldwide, including the unborn who now soak in a witches brew of poisons from the point of conception.  The scientific community is alarmed but powerless as humanity accelerates into a mass-extinction event.  

As such, the Republican form of government of bribery and greed is directly responsible for allowing the only planet in the universe that can sustain us to be heavily-contaminated and needlessly destroyed in one generation.  And given the chaos that is now inevitable, it is critical to immediately hire millions of people to shift to a solar-sourced Hydrogen Economy that will power indoor "Lifeboat" and larger "Ark" agricultural systems like those shown on the
BraunforPresident.US website with wartime-speed in every community.  ​


Such systems will be able to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week regardless of weather conditions, and if enough of these systems are mass-produced in every community in time, humanity and civilization will be able to survive the exponentially worsening climate change chaos that is now inevitable. 

​​

Once government lobbying is made illegal, the majority can then shift from the toxic and unsustainable Oil and Nuclear Age to a poison-free and renewable Solar Hydrogen Cannabis Age by 2020 by mass-producing a mix of hydrogen production, storage, distribution and end use systems that will impact every home, vehicle, power plant and food production system.  Millions of Americans will be immediately employed with real jobs that will generate trillions of dollars each year by producing poison-free food and fuel.  


The Hydrogen Economy


Because the hydrogen production and engine conversion technologies have been in the public domain for nearly 200 years, those trillions of dollars each year will go to the American people, and not the multinational oil, coal, and other fossil fuel and nuclear corporations who have poisoned the only planet in the Universe that is known to sustain life. It is why it is critical to Take Action Now, by downloading the Article V Citizen Ballot to approve and ratify the Democracy Amendment, fill it out, and then send it to your Secretary of State where it can be verified, counted and archived.  Then contact every person you know to encourage them to do likewise with wartime-speed.  


As Braun points out, given the "exponential age" in which we now live, humanity is rapidly accelerating towards both a technological "utopia" of a solar-sourced Hydrogen and Cannabis Age of molecular regenerative medicine that is already eliminating aging and disease -- as well as an ecological "oblivion" scenario that is now taking place as the Earth enters the final exponential stages of its 6th Mass-Extinction event.   And the decisions made now will determine which future evolves.


​From an exponential perspective, it is now 11:59.9 for the global human community and Spaceship Earth, and while few Americans understand this exponential mathematical concept, which is explained on the Exponential Icebergs document posted on the "Papers" section  this website, and without this understanding, one cannot comprehend how serious the problems are, as humanity accelerates towards an "oblivion" scenario from overpopulation, the Oil and Nuclear Age of chemical contamination and the catastrophic fossil fuel-induced climate change, droughts, floods and superstorms that are already destroying major food production systems worldwide as well as dissolving the stratospheric ozone layer, which is critical for life on the surface of the Earth. 


If that were not bad enough, there are also two supervolcanio's in the U.S., one is in Yellowstone and the other one is located in Mammoth, California, and both at the stage where they could erupt tomorrow, especially due to the fracking of the fault lines in California, which is Braun's view is utter insanity.  And given the shock waves of such catastrophic events, one super volcanic eruption will likely trigger the other.  


These mass-extinction events are now inevitable, and the only technology that will insure that humanity and civilization will survive and prosper, are the Lifeboat Ark systems, assuming enough are built and operational in time.  This is why the majority of American citizens must Take Action Now  to pass and ratify Braun's proposed Democracy Amendment with wartime-speed, by downloading the Article V Citizen Ballot, filling it out and sending it to their Secretary of State, where the ballots can be verified, counted and archived.  

What About the Quality of Life?


A Policy of Growth is a Ponzi-scheme Policy of Mass-Suicide

and the solution is a Stable State Economic System

based on a Solar Hydrogen Cannabis Economy


Both Republicans and the so-called Democrats support the bribery-based American Republic that promotes suicidal policies of using highly-toxic and non-renewable fossil and nuclear fuels as well as a mindless policy of growth and overpopulation that has dramatically and profoundly reduced the "quality of life" for all Americans, as the Earth is made uninhabitable in the process.


Virtually every major city in the U.S. and worldwide is now heavily overpopulated; and the problem only grows worse with time. There is a structural unemployment problem in the U.S. and most other industrial countries due to automation and woman who are now in the labor force, and to make matters worse, many of the jobs are minimum wage and produce toxic products that should not be made in the first place, such as gasoline, pesticides, junk food as well as toxic "snake oil" pharmaceutical drugs that replaced the non-toxic cannabis medicines.


However, Braun's proposed transition from the toxic Oil Age to a poison-free Hydrogen and Cannabis Age that will be mass-producing wind and other solar powered hydrogen production systems needed to power the lifeboat and Arcology Ark food production systems in each community.  


Millions of critically important educational and employment opportunities will be created for virtually any person who is able to work,not in poisoning the planet, but producing and operating Lifeboat and larger Ark indoor food production systems that will be powered by land and sea-based Windship Hydrogen Production systems like those shown below that were developed by engineering professor William Heronemus, who was the superintendent of shipbuilding for the U.S. Navy.  Braun's engineering firm, which was located at the McDonnell Douglass facility in Huntington Beach, California, worked with Heronemus and his colleagues to help commercialize his technology that is shown in the two images below, which would provide a vast sanctuary for the remaining fish and other marine organisms that are rapidly being driving into extinction.

CEO and senior scientist Harry Braun in his office with images of the solar hydrogen production systems who wants as president to mass-produce that have been developed by Lockheed Martin and engineering professor William Heronemus who was the former superintendent of shipbuilding for the U.S. Navy to replace all fossil and nuclear fuels in the U.S. by 2020 and worldwide by 2025.

Conclusions


In the American Republic, elections come and go, but little changes regardless of who gets elected. Given this reality, and given the scale and scope of the current financial collapse, and the fact that the current two party system of government in the U.S. is so fundamentally corrupted by an army of over 35,000 lobbyists, only Braun's proposed Democracy Amendment can solve the problem of putting an end to the influence of lobbyists who are in the final stages of destroying not only America’s economy and contaminating virtually every American citizen, but the biological life-support systems of the only planet in the Universe that can sustain us and our descendants. Thus there is not a day to lose in ratifying the Democracy Amendment.

Given the economic and environmental State of Emergency that now exists, it is now critical to bypass the bribery-based Congress and  State Legislatures with the Article V Citizen Ballot that can be this website.  Once the majority of citizens in 38 states mail their signed ballots to their Secretary of State, the Democracy Amendment will be ratified as the 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  And given the ;power of the social media on the internet, the ratification could take place in a matter of weeks, once the  American public is made aware of this Article V move on the constitutional chessboard.

Empowering the majority by Ratifying the Democracy Amendment

with an Article V Citizen Ballot 

As engineering professor Heronemus observed, the windship hydrogen production systems shown above could have been produced in the 1800's by replacing the rows of canvas sails in Clipper ships with rows of wooden wind turbines, which is why the highly-toxic Oil Age that is making the Earth uninhabitable was never necessary.
