Wall or no wall?

It’s time for the U.S. to join the 21st Century… Vote online!

This past December, President Donald Trump, demanding Congress fund his signature campaign promise to build a wall on the southwestern border, declared “If we don’t have border security, we’ll shut down the government.”

Rejecting his request, Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi ridiculed Trump’s threat saying, “It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him.”

Keeping to his word, Trump shut down the U.S. Government for 35 days, the longest in history. The unwillingness of the two ruling parties to strike a deal to end the deadlock that affected 800,000 government workers and cost the nation some $11 billion in lost revenue, exemplified the incompetence and ineptitude of America’s political system.

And despite all the bluster and grandstanding from politicians on both sides of the aisle, Trump didn’t get the money to build the wall, he ended the shutdown but the threats still loom of another government shutdown if no agreement is reached.

As Gerald Celente has long forecast, it is time for America to embrace the Swiss system of Direct Democracy: Let the people vote on major critical issues that affect their lives and livelihoods.

The Wall or No Wall ballot would be a simple Yes or No vote.

A) Yes, I want a Border Wall that will cost $XX billion to build.

B) No, I do not want a Border Wall and I am willing to pay $XX more in taxes for the social needs of each immigrant entering the country.

Again, considering the blatant ineptitude of the two entrenched political parties – each with demonstrated track records of economic, social and geopolitical failures – clearly it is their self-interests and those special interests that enrich them with campaign contributions (bribes and payoffs) that they serve, and not those of the general public.

And the public agrees: The Democracy Fund Voter Study Group’s 2018 VOTER survey reported that sixty-eight percent of respondents said, “a third major party is needed.”

IT’S TIME FOR BLOCKCHAIN VOTING

As vividly exemplified in the United States midterm elections, with many key races not resolved for weeks, claims of voter fraud, massive system breakdowns, voter registration compliance disputes, ballot confusion, etc… the nation’s archaic electoral systems proved their antiquated ineffectiveness.

Therefore to finally enter the high-tech 21st century in which even the populations of the poorest nations are hand-held/app connected, the time for Blockchain Voting is now. The new technology would not only update and accelerate the current archaic voting system, most importantly, it would put the decision making process in the hands of the people.

Rather than entrenched career politicians deciding the nation’s future, especially on such issues as wars, defense budgets, tax deals and other critical matters, Celente says, “let the people decide, and Blockchain Voting is the 21st century system that will put the future in their hands and not those of political parties.” TJ

Secure and simple. Blockchain technology is being embraced by the biggest banks and financial institutions, insurance giants, technology companies, major industries and governments worldwide.

What will it take to make Blockchain Voting a reality?

“The will of the people,” said Celente.
