RIVERO 2016; HE CAN HARDLY DO ANY WORSE!

The Issues

The whole idea of me running for President in 2016 is, of course, an exercise in futility. I refuse to serve Wall Street money-junkies, or any foreign government, and under the current rules of American politics, that makes me unelectable. If they were able to block Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012, I don't stand a snowball's chance in the dark regions of winning anything! However, rather than treating this campaign as a complete joke, I decided to make my "campaign" a platform from which to comment on the major issues of the campaign, meaning those issues that actually affect each and every American, while avoiding the fringe issues used as election year distractions from problems Washington DC cannot or will not solve.

(On the other hand, if someone knows how to file the official paperwork to be a real candidate, feel free to volunteer!)

The Candidate

Born in Boston, a descendant of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, I spent my childhood in New England farming country and my adolescence in Los Angeles. I worked for NASA, then in the film and TV industry for over 30 years, and have spent almost twenty years as a blogger and seven as a talk-show radio host. Although raised a Republican, I have abandoned party affiliation as both traditional parties now seem aligned against the good of the nation. Politically I am a paleo-conservative, meaning small government with fiscal sense that otherwise refuses to tinker in peoples' private lives.

The Blueprint for the New America

At this time in history it is obvious that the Federal Government

is doomed to follow the former USSR into the dust bin of history. It is far too late to work within the system to effect change. The current government is too trapped by financial influences and foreign entanglements to change, and carries the crushing burden of 200 years of lies and deceptions against the American people. For this reason, this government cannot ever admit error or deception of the entire fraud of the current system, dating back to the Federal Reserve act of 1913, will unravel. Because of this inevitability, I am working on a Blueprint for a New America. not a new administration or a new set of laws, but a complete top-to-bottom redesign, founded on the original Constitution and the first 13 Amendments. The top priority of the new America will be a complete and permanent ban on private central banks issuing the public currency as a loan at interest, which is the same system of economics the United States fought a revolution to be free of, and the same system which has, over the last 100 years, transferred the wealth of the nation form the workers whose labor created that wealth, into the pockets of Wall Street speculators, who return nothing of tangible value to society in exchange. The public currency must return to being a public utility, as it was when this nation was founded.
