My name is Orlando Marrero, and I am trying to start the Next American Revolution. This time WE the PEOPLE take back our democracy. My Declaration of War against the status quo is called the "Oath of Higher Service". It includes everything we want from our candidates and will return real democracy to America by avoiding partisan politics. Blue, Red, Right, Left, Independent, Republican, or Democrat and everyone else in between will benefit from a government that once again works for us.
I am doing this because it is the only way we can save ourselves. The country is under the control of the rich, the privileged, the powerful, the corporations, and the special interests. These five groups control the politicians, and when combined with Gerrymandering and obscene amounts of money spent influencing our politics, it leads to gridlock and failed government. If we wait for the those in power or the politicians to fix the problem we're all in trouble. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it. All we can do is use our right to vote and force them to change and give us back true democracy. A democracy where our votes once again are more important than their dollars.
How this works is simple: Cast your vote for a candidate only when they have taken this oath and pledged to live by it. If they refuse to or are disqualified from taking the oath, don't vote for them. When every candidate in America, everywhere and in all races, must take this oath to get elected, then "We the People" will have taken back our democracy... and saved our nation.
This year I am the first and only candidate in 241 years of American history to have taken this oath, and to be certified as doing so. I hope and pray that I won't be the last, and one day it will be impossible to be voted into office without taking the oath and living by it. Please help me win this fight, and we will take back our democracy together!
You have an important role to play in this fight. As part of the Oath, I will accept endorsements but no endorsement cash, only individual contributions. This will allow me to vote for what is in the best interests of the people in my district, instead of being committed to a course of action dictated by financial need.
Help me win this fight, by volunteering, making a donation, or by voicing your support.
