I am part of our community and have experienced the highs and lows like so many others. I have been in the gutter, and I have been on top of the mountain. I have experienced homelessness and drug addiction. I have learned from all of these experiences.
Our political campaign is We The People, our agenda is to unite the people and inspire healthy and beneficial change. This change is needed because the existing model is not working. We need to evolve. Humanity’s mentality needs to change. The laws that we fall under, the rule of law, is what a republic is based on. The laws need to evolve with the people. Addressing the effects, or problems that we see, housing, health, education, even politics and government, is not how we deal with change, we need to look at the root of the problem. The root of the problem is the system itself.
Ideas and concepts are not enough. We have a broken system, we have broken schools, broken roads, and broken government. Fixing these issues requires tools, so we have developed an App. We can use this tool to vote, to share, to help. It is a safe place to ask for help, or say I am here to help, or how can I help.
We have become separate, we have been divided and conquered, because we view each other differently. We need to share the knowledge that we are all one, that we are the same family, we are connected to nature, all one system that we are a part of.
The constitutional convention. This year, in 2018, we have the opportunity to have a constitutional convention. The state constitution is the legal document that out county government and county charter follow. We need to utilize this opportunity to bring our constitution into what we need to serve us, we the people of maui county.
The goal is to be happy, to feel safe and protected. The word community is two words put together, come and unity. Community is the path away from divide and conquer. When we come together in unity, many of the problems we face, we will find a solution for. We can not solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it. .
The problem is we are divided, the answer is work together.
This is synergy. Synergy leads to abundance.
The biggest issue we face here on Maui is also the biggest issue we face on a global level. That is that we have been conquered and divided. To fix this we must be united. We need to move from philosophy of Me to philosophy of We. By working together we employ the laws of synergy, that is to say, we get more than we would working by our self. Whereas division leads to scarcity, unity or synergy leads to abundance.
I love you all like you are my brother and my sister. We are all one, and I love you all like I love my children.
