About

This campaign aims to replace #MakeAmericaGreatAgain with #MakeAmericaTruthfulAgain to #FireFakePresident. 

Unite leaders, organizations, communities, networks and we, the people, in this common cause. Join now ... and read on to understand better the reasons why you should ask your organization to sponsor this campaign.

The video (above) challenges our own PC mindsets and to generate new ways of thinking about how to hold politicians accountable to the truth.

Are you sick and tired of fake news?

Your negative reactions to the new words, neo-terrorism and neo-terrorists (used the video above) may provide insights into what opens and closes your mindset about truth and fake news. 

What is your reaction to the following question?

Is Mueller a pillar of truth-seeking or a neo-terrorist pulling off a coup d'état? 

The latter part of this question exposes how GOP loyalists negatively framed Mueller by using doubts alone to discredit him, without a shed of evidence. 

Is this false accusation an attack of neo-terrorism or a fake news joke?

How can we defeat fake news?

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.                                                                            Einstein 

No one and no one organization has the solution. We need to crowdsource our ideas in the spirit of open innovation to cultivate open mindsets and unite in discovering a new path to restore democracy.

How can we solve the wicked problem of fake news corrupting our democracy?

We must learn from the evangelical christian fundamentalists who elected Trump. A strong united minority trumped a fragmented silent majority. How can we unite the silent majority to reverse this power dynamic?

Use this meta-cause, #MakeAmericaTruthfulAgain 

To defeat the neo-terrorists of fake news, we must unite our leaders to align organizations, communities and people together in generating the network power to:

  • Host #MakeAmericaTruthfulAgain webinars as a way to set workshops using open dialogue
  • Work with media to create ongoing story movements about how to drain the swamp of fake news
  • Increase voter turnout for the 2018 midterm elections and beyond

Truth is the highest quest for democracy

  • Without truth, there is no trust in democracy 
  • Without trust, there is no good government  
  • Without good government, there is no accountability to the people
  • Without accountability, there is no true liberty
  • Without liberty, there is no true freedom of thought  

What’s left?  Plutocracy: a government for rich, of the rich, and rigged by the rich.  Plutocrats are the enemies of equality and equity.

plutocracy

We have a corrupt crony democracy with Trumpism leading the way with fake news. The Dems are nowhere close to the master marketing genius of fake news. Trump is in a league of his own.

The Trumpism of fake news is our Darkest Hour in US politics.

Where are the Winston Churchills to stand up for democracy and defeat the neo-terrorists of fake news? 

The GOP is in power and therefore has far greater potential to further corrupt our democracy than the Dems. Both parties need fixing to address the extreme state of dysfunctional political polarizations.

What can we, the People, do to end corruption of our democracy?

Activate citizens

People are inundated with requests to sign up to political campaigns and donate money to various causes. This splintered strategy reinforces passive citizenship. 

Passive citizenship is no match to the unified force of evangelical christians  who got Trump elected. 80% of evangelical christians are die-hard Trump supporters. Trump's loyal tribal base dominates over the fragmented silent majority.

How can the silent majority develop a unified force of pro-active citizens to #VoteForTruth?  

What if we linked the #MeToo and #MakeAmericaTruthfulAgain (#MATA) movements together to usurp the sexual and political abusers of patriarchal power.

Me too
Me too

Call out neo-terrorists 

The political abuse of fake news is neo-terrorism. Neo-terrorist is a label for calling out political abusers. Neo-terrorists are fake patriots.

  • Neo-terrorists win when megalomania, narcissism and sociopathy (evil trinity) triumphs over equity, altruism and transparent accountability (moral trinity). 
  • Neo-terrorists put political loyalty, identity and blind loyalty ahead of the needs of the people and the health of the planet. 
  • Neo-terrorists are the enemies to democracy.

Some people object to using these labels. in part because they are psychologically naive about deranged personalities. 

How can we liberate ourselves from the tyranny of fake news? 

Become true patriots

True patriots are free-thinkers who have a quest for the truth, not pawns, parrots or pitbulls of propaganda machines.  

  • True patriots win when equity, altruism and transparent accountability triumph over megalomania, narcissism and sociopathy.  
  • True patriots put the needs of the people and the health of the planet ahead of political loyalty, identity and blind loyalty.
  • True patriots align networks, organizations and the media to resuscitate democracy from the stranglehold of plutocracy

Design for Exponential Political Impact

We need a healthy competition of ideas, strategies and tactics to design for exponential impact, in the spirit of inclusion and diversity.  How can we best design messaging and marketing strategies to unrig the system?

 Let's open our mindsets to: 

  • Create middle ground for building common ground. 
  • Use our differences to make a difference for the greater good 

Use the American spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship to: 

  • Establish an inter-organizational liaison group among communication and social media directors 
  • Build a self-organizing network for inter-organizational synergy 
  • Use an online platform for open innovation and collaborative learning

Seeking Organizational Sponsorship

  • Participate in an inter-organizational movement about hosting #MakeAmericaTruthfulAgain webinars and workshops 
  • Inquire about the benefits of sponsorship 
  • Learn how you can re-coup your donation
