What have we learned in 2000+ years?
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom shoud be tempered and controlled, and the assitance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, insetad of living on public assistance." - Cicero - 55 BC.
We need to replace every career politician with a citizen candidate.
A citizen candidate would have to agree:
1. to serve one term.
2. accept the local average wage
3. take no other income
4. be subject to an automatic recall agreement for any constitutional violation.

The Policy of ANewSlate.com?
Our Policy can plainly be expressed by the following quote from DownsizeDC.org
(a tool you should make good use of....often):
* Our organization is legally non-partisan, and temperamentally ANTI-partisan.
* We distrust all political parties, and all politicians.
* We take NO position for partisan political reasons, for the simple reason that we have NO partisan political loyalties, AT ALL.
So, What Is ANewSlate.com ?
What's needed to solve the ongoing problem of poor governance is A New Slate on every ballot all across the nation for every city/town/village, county, state and national election.
It's difficult, but simple. In order for 'We The People' to get the representation we want and expect, we have to hold accountable and replace each and every elected servant that does not and will not abide by their oath of office and the will of their constituents. If we don't do this at every election we will just perpetuate and worsen what has become shameful and harmful to our way of life. And, we have no-one to blame but ourselves.
With all of the wonderful organizations that have made millions of us painfully aware of our plight, we must now realize that our one and only solution is the ballot box because just one, two, a few or even a whole political party can and will not make our country whole again.
The bottom line is, the most important political entity is the VOTER and we need to use whatever tool is available to get them to the polls. That is what this site is dedicated to.
To see an image of any card below, hover your mouse over the link that prints the card.
Just click any link below to print that card (8 to a page).
PLEASE Be patient.
The card generation sometimes takes a while to process depending on your connection speed.
Become a member of this site, send us your photo or logo to Webguy AT Ronz.WS and we'll make you your own printable card for you to print, 8-to-a-page, for handing out.
The cards for handouts above are generated 8 to a page into a PDF file which will then download to your browser where you can save them or print them. As a member, you can upload your own card image into your account so that you, too, can print them out. It's a money saver and adds the flexibility of producing small quantitiies for variety. We'll add more 'special ones' like the above as we develop them.
If you plan to re-print these and/or your own cards, it would be really a good idea to save the PDF file into your computer...saves time and bandwidth.
The cards are meant to be the size of a standard business card, i.e. 3.5" X 2". You could upload an image instead of scanning your card. Keep the size in mind if you do the image trick so that it will fit and appear properly. You'll see the option to print your own 'cards' after you log in. Additionally, you can create multiple accounts with separate profiles to log into and will then be able to print your choice of cards for handouts.
Or, if you have a card design that would be an appropriate generic handout, please attach an image of it to WebGuy@ANewSlate.com or snail-mail it to A New Slate, PO Box 406, Etowah, TN 37331 and we'll add it to the list above.
So, join the fun, design your own, use these samples, print a few, get some clip on card holders to wear, start some conversations with real live voters, have an affect on election results, get busy, it's never too late..................
The biggest efforts will be put into tailor-made, by you, the users, output of your choice of documents for outreach to individual voters.
Imagine being able to pick a street, city, county or State and selectively generating formatted lists or documents for delivery to registered voters.
For instance, you can decide to get face-to-face with every voter on Main Street in your town by printing a walking list in house number order knowing which doors to knock on and where you can find a registered voter. You could deliver hand-outs, make a survey or just plain touch base to encourage voting for/against someone or some issue. With a few volunteers you can cover a whole city.
How about being able to pre-print address labels, cards, letters, petitions using selective voter contact data? Think of the improved impact of personalizing these outputs and the time and money you can save as well as being efficient with your budget and time.
Activists or liberty-minded groups can use these tools to build a knowledge base with phone numbers and email addresses for ongoing voter education rallying them for support.
New Slate data outputs will be available in PDF, DOC, PS, web page display and Excel formats, the latter for you 'do-it-yourself' computer wizards.
Browse the site. You'll find information resources for identifying local donors and your own area's legislator actions. You'll also find references and directions on how to easily form your own private....and I mean PRIVATE... groups on existing sites unlike the 'everybody sees and knows all about you world wide' groups. There's even a very stealthy email system that exists that can defy all attempts to track your comunications.
"Remember In November"
The slogan above will be seen and heard, hopefully, forever. There's already a parody written and performed by Paul Shanklin that would fit very well as our theme song.
If you are interested in doing more than listening to the multitude of activists that are 'preaching to the choir', then you are in the right place.
What we ultamately need is simple yet difficult:
1. A voter mindset change to accomplish an ongoing system to replace our public servants with citizen candidates willing to serve one short term at local average wage as their ONLY income.
2. This can become a non-partisan norm and, in just a few election cycles, can return our governance to what it was intended to be.
3. But, first the people have to care, then participate, not just whine about it.
This site will be dedicated to providing on-line tools for any willing and able individual to be able to actually make a difference, to accomplish the end goal(s) of restoring our Republic and to roll back the dirty deeds that have, are and will be corrupting our way of life.
We support and encourage everyone who participates in any and all organized groups with these same goals and offer this site to help get the job(s) done. The tools found here are a supplement to enhance all of these important and critical efforts.
Check back often for more new cool tools.
From Within Really Hurts
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Warren Buffett presented his quick and easy solution to America ’s debt problem on CNBC:
“We could end the deficit in five minutes. You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than three percent of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for reelection.”
(Now, there's a Constitutional amendment I could support!)
This was a response to all State of TN legislators after they passed a bill that supposedly would protect all children against child abuse:
I'm an old guy and very conservative...I'm to the right of Atilla the Hun.
But, I have to tell you that you strike me as someone who would put a chastity belt on every living thing and keep the key available only for the highest bidding lobbyist.
I actually believe that folks like yourself in government are a worse threat to individual liberty than radical islamists. What you do is pander to voters with schemes that will supposedly (but won't) protect them from every boogeyman (or woman) who has an impure thought according to your way of thinking.
Actually, it's worse than that. It's your motivation for staying in power. Please read this.
"It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood: if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes, that no man who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow." - James Madison
Now, thanks to you and your kind, parents will have to be very careful not to show affection for their kids, especially in public, otherwise some holier-than-thou will impose legal hell on them.
I'm more concerned by the underlying "unintended consequences" that y'all never consider when coming up with these "I'm so pure, vote for me" ideas that mostly squeeze down more and more on life, liberty and property rights one more law at a time.
If you truly believe that personal or social abuses are lessoned by bigger penalties and more prisons you are sadly misinformed. When are you legislators going to realize that sex and drug abuses are mental health problems and that harsh laws mostly add high profit motives and corruption to both sides of the law exacerbating these problems?
If you legislate otherwise, I question your motives.
