It is 10:00pm, December 29, 2009 and I am waiting for Bill Nees to come online so that we can talk some more about running for President and Vice President of these United States of America. As I wait, I think back to how this all happened...
I was born David Lee Ion in Doctors Hospital, Seattle, Washington on July 22, 1951. I learned by the age of 14 that there were two things I loved. One was the guitar and singing ...Music, the Universal Language Message Delivery System and it made my living for close to 40 years; but it was the second one that led me to this moment in time.
I loved the Constitution. I studied everything I could find on it every chance I got; no matter how small or large the article was. I soon found that I had close to a photographic memory, and could quite often go right back to page and paragraph of something I had read. This made me even more interested, as I retained more and more of what I was reading.
As I studied these Documents and Secondary Literatures, I grew to believe that our nation needs to get back to the precepts and principles of Freedoms and Liberties we once stood for. The government was becoming stronger than the people it was voted in to serve and no one seemed to be noticing. In 1976 I moved to Anchorage, Alaska where I met the lady that was to become my life mate. Charlotte Bradfield. She was a singer and we worked as a duo for quite a few years. As I spent late hours studying, she spent them needle working. Life was good.
Then my life took a change of direction and I found that I had even more time to study these documents. I became aware of the internet and how I could find just about anything on it. I bought the domain name " www.RightsOfThePeople.com
". I started collecting anything I could about the Constitution and all documentation related to the founding of our Nation. As I found one article, I discovered there was another one where that came from, etc... It became a Literal Alaskan Avalanche of articles and documentation. One of the only sites to have very complete study guides for the Constitution and a section just for children from K through 12 grade levels. Government for Kids 8 - 80!
Then I opened a talk room on PalTalk, "Ever Vigilant Citizens". I got even further into the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Federalist and Anti Federalist Papers, the Constitution of the United States of America, Bill of Rights and Amendments. This room became the center of many late night discussions about the subject. As the time has progressed, we have had many discussions about the man that currently calls himself our president and as we see what is being done to this nation, we are all the more convinced it is time for a Campaign to Make a Difference in Government
, not "Change" that we don't need or want.
I met a man named Bill Nees and we conversed many long hours during the last two years. Then one night he announced that he felt God had directed him to run for President of the United States. The next night, he ask me if I would consider running-mate as his Vice President. I had no problem answering yes to his question and accepted the challenge. We are running under a new independent party write-in ticket called "Independent Statesmen". We are going to do our best to guide this country back the way the Founding Fathers and Constitution intended it to be. The Original Intent, Sources, Meanings and Applications of the original charter of the instrument contract of government constructed by We the People, "Of the People, By the People, For the People" by men of vision whom spoke of this constitution serving 200 to 300 Million Freemen! They had An American Vision
, do you?
As Vice-President Running Mate: "I aspire to be a Statesman, American Citizens are weary of the "career politician"... The Senate NEEDS an "Overseer", the Constitution establishes this case. That Job is allocated to the Vice President of the United States of America, in Article I Section 3, shall be "President of the Senate". I Intend to do my Job as overseer of their Senate Activities with an "American Constitutional Grit".
Vice President is one of THE MOST Important "Checks & Balances" in our government process.
"I want to be remembered for what I did; not what I failed to do." --David Ion, Vice Presidential Candidate for 2016
