Hello My name is Dennis Shoemaker.  I would like a place in the Asgardian government to represent Asgardians to insure fair and impartial treatment for all citizens and residents of Asgardia. I see a future where all humans are given the basic rights everyone deserves. I see these rights as the basic right to healthcare, housing, food, and security. These are not out of reach to Asgardia.  Through the careful regulation of space in our station, proper allocation of resources, work, and wealth we on Asgardia can achieve what those on Earth couldn't dream being possible. If appointed to the government I plan to build support for our inclusive human society so we can all live long and prosper together. Please vote for me and let's reach for the stars together. My Vision of Asgardia My vision of Asgardia is one where the citizens don’t need money to live day to day. Food grown or produced on the station would be rationed to each citizen on a daily basis.  All would eat healthy food with no one going hungry.  Clothing would be provided as a uniform for daily wear and dress uniform for official events.  Damaged or old clothing would be exchanged for new. The old, being made of recyclable material would be recycled.  Education would be mandatory through to high school and career education.  Careers would be based on academic ability with the possibility of career changes. Work would be assigned based on training or education.  The salary would not be payment as we think of it now.  It would be based on a credit system.  These credits would be used for personal items such as trips back to earth, or items for sale in Asgardian shops and markets.  These would not be everyday items people need but comfort items.  Asgardia would make income from work performed by citizens to sell back to Earth in the form of goods, information or services.  These items would be sold at 60% over the cost of production.  Total income from Asgardia would be broken down as such 40% for production 20% for Asgardia expansion and upkeep.  40 for Asgardian social services and a Universal ( Basic ) Income. In time this system would build up a financial holding due to the fact that citizens would not be drawing credits all of the time, like banks today, the credit system would be able to hold a reserve large enough to cover all citizen credits. Also shops, markets, and services on Asgardia would pay tax for their businesses. In this way the citizens of Asgardia will be free of the burdens humans on Earth have had to carry since the beginning of time.  A lot of my ideas are not new, the new part is having them all together for all Asgardians.  We are humans helping himans make a better world than the one we came into. I believe this is possible, vote for me and together let’s reach for the stars and make it happen. Skills I bring to Asgardia As a military veteran and a high school teacher have have the honed the skills needed organise large groups to complete a common goal. I am proficient in conducting meeting with parliamentary procedure and also adept working within parliamentary procedure to bring items up for consideration in a professional manner. My people skills make it possible to work out agreements to the satisfaction of those involved. As an English as a Foreign Language teacher my 18 years of experience living and working in a foreign country, South Korea 20 months, and Japan 18 years, help me understand patience needed and the difficulty working in a foreign culture to achieve one’s goals. As a university Student Senator and as a member of my high school committee I have been responsible for large sums of money allocated for events.  I understand the need for strict accounting procedures, and I’m able to complete projects within the allocated budget. If you would like to get to know me better please visit my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dlshoemaker I have also created a Facebook Blog Asgardia Citizen Blog DLS https://www.facebook.com/Asgardia-Citizen-Blog-DLS-425644584487949/ Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

And about the uniform, i was thinking same.

Aug 14, 01 / August 26, 2017 21:25 UTC
I support you! Today, many people want to do something for the development of asgardia, but don't know what. Maybe start with this? I give You my vote. Good luck!
Aug 14, 01 / August 26, 2017 21:37 UTC
You sound pretty sensible.  We need a vision of what Asgardia is to be.  My current level of input is very low -

but my focus will be on trying to build consensus and subsequent implementation of plans that might protect the Earth, or at least alleviate the problems of electromagnetic interference or 'Space Weather'.
Dec 4, 01 / December 6, 2017 23:49 UTC
Thank you for your message.  I think you also have a good idea.  We have many issues to address and I think you hit on one that will be very important.

I do not want to rain on your parade but there is a financial system and currency put in place by Asgardia's constitution. How will this tie in with the credit-system you have mentioned?
Nov 26, 01 / November 30, 2017 06:14 UTC
The educational system would require funding by our government.  I would recommend taxing the sale of all of our services provided.
Nov 28, 01 / December 2, 2017 05:44 UTC
You are correct.  My plan would see the currency used in digital form with citizens and visitors using a verification system to access funds and make purchases off world. No need for cash.
Sep 8, 01 / September 17, 2017 14:17 UTC
나는 너의 의견에 동의한다.

기회가 있다면, 나는 그것을 시도하고 싶다.

나는 젊지 만, 나는 미래에 그런 종류의 일을하고 싶다.

오, 나는 한국인이다.

^^
Oct 4, 01 / October 11, 2017 04:52 UTC
¡Le felicito!

el planteamiento educativo es muy interesante, confió en su capacidad, pero tengo dudas con el sistema de crédito. Espero que el gobierno de Asgardia se filtre de todo esquema de la corrupción, tan habitual en la tierra. EXITOS.

I trust on you !!!
Nov 20, 01 / November 24, 2017 20:52 UTC
Hey! Got some question, need your answer as a candidate. I don't know it that only for me up to date or it is reality, but I wonder your opinion on following problem. As for me, for now I see Asgardia as a project for proto-country society, I mean great place to model and test some ideas of new state emerging, better law and political system, then any country in the world have now  etc.. But, as far as I saw, particularly by subjects of petitions been submitted and comments in discussion - a big part of this community is freaks (don't want anybody to hurt in any way; in sense of seriousness of relation to Asgardia) or people with non-realistic approach like pseudo-science proposals and so on. Yep, I do consider that right of free speech and related right is essential and fully agree on that. But I don't understand, how we can create serious thing among with such individuals. Nobody says, that this project will perfectly fly on start, but I don't see a path to success, if main driven force will be nerds with sci-fi mind and peoples that resister out there for fun or to make senseless discussions about thing that don't even matter. How you plan to rule this thing to make rational route and to suppress negative factors, Personally I signed to this citizenship to see how things will be in future, how can bunch of people make something different, when no limits of regular law an order applied, for great experiment with ability to grow in something useful and real in some distant/future; but sure not for one more social network with stupid jokes and things like trolling each other and making idiotic proposals like "let's make goddamn space warfare robotic battleships with force-field and warp-speeds". Listen, I do believe in science and I do believe that humanity can and must try imagine fantastic for today tech, cause it's the only way when such fantastic technology can really happen, sooner or later. But for now it seems like many people of this community try making thing that not even close to goal of Asgardia as constitution suggests. So, my question - how do you see this problem to get things serious (not only applied to science-related field, but to whole project)? P.S. Sorry for little bit messy statement - English isn't my primary language, so, there may be mistakes.
And one more question - I think that Head of the nation have little bit much of power in ruling the country as it is excepted in constitution - what do you think? What changes must be adopted as soon as possible? And is 40 y.o. barrier to take places isn't too much? I mean, why whe, as citizents, must choose our representatives with certain age level but not for, i don't know IQ-alike concept or ability of critical decision-making and reality approach? What is your opinion and how you will affect that to change?
Will be pleased for wide answer and discussion if needed. Best regards
Nov 28, 01 / December 2, 2017 05:40 UTC
As to your first question I believe this will work even with the trolls and as you put it "freaks."  This is an organization that will someday become a counrty in space.  This is a marathon event not a sprint and only those who truly wish to see this happen will stay in the race.  There are always those people in a group that are more extreme in their views and never reach a position of power.  I believe this will be the same.  The same can be said for your second question about the age requirement, most voters will not entrust an eighteen year old with the power of a parliament seat.  So it is also a non-issue.  There are young people who are involved in government and get entrusted with office because they have proven themselves.  I have no problem with allowing adults of leagle age to run for office. Thank you for your questions.
Nov 20, 01 / November 24, 2017 21:51 UTC
I am excited for the future of Asgaurdia! I want to be a part of this nation and its development into space. Your Views and Ideals are sublime, offering not only the best solutions to the problems of our age, but also pushing for a community that actually works for the people rather than the individuals or minority.

I believe strongly in the government supplying the needs of the whole, and i hope that you might push forward to come to help make this nation successful!
Nov 28, 01 / December 2, 2017 05:46 UTC
Thank you.  I will not give up working for these goals.
Nov 21, 01 / November 25, 2017 02:47 UTC
I think you would be amazing for Asgardia! Definitely voting for you :)
Nov 22, 01 / November 26, 2017 01:54 UTC
I want you to make the developed countries safe and sovereign, guarantee to the welfare of all the people and give freedom to religion and make the country where and prosper
Nov 28, 01 / December 2, 2017 05:48 UTC
I agree an I will do my best to see that Asgardia will always put the citizens first.

I'm very pleased to see you at the top of this list. I have changed my vote to you because I feel you are the most qualified to represent the people of Asgardia! Do not let us down!
Dec 26, 01 / December 28, 2017 11:04 UTC
Thank you for your support! I will do my best to help build a government that puts our people and goals first.
Jan 6, 02 / January 6, 2018 15:39 UTC
Dear Denis, know that I voted for you because I believe that you are the best qualified in your sector to "move" to a "motion" when you will have the "floor" in Parliament.
However, I do not agree with you on rationalization and uniforms, but freedom and liberty need a diversity of views and opinions to express themselves in this strong democracy for the best interest of the representative parliament of the sitizens of the kingdom of Asgardia.
Jan 7, 02 / January 7, 2018 18:59 UTC
I appreciate your comment. Thank you for reading it. The rationale behind the uniform is that we will not put a burden on our people for work clothes. Being in space (thinking far ahead) there will be problem with simple things such as buying a pair of shoes. If there is a common uniform people will not have to worry about it. Civilian clothes are a luxury item people should not have to worry about every day. That is just one reason why I think that way.
Again thank you for your support and thank you for the comment.
Jan 9, 02 / January 9, 2018 21:07 UTC
Hello, Dennis, there are a lot of things to be agreed with here.
Here is my take on the subject of SOLAR coins and UBI.
If you have time to read it (3~5min) please let me know your feedback.
Let's do this!

Jerome you and I see eye to eye on many issues. Working together I'm sure we can lay a great foundation for future generations to build on. What the first parliament does will insure that future Asgardians can work and pursue the fulfillment of Asgardia's Supreme Values unhindered by the problems that hold humans back on this planet.
Jan 18, 02 / January 18, 2018 15:54 UTC
Mr. Shoemaker,
I wish you the best of luck in your campaign. Your voice and your vision would be a great asset to Asgardia. I would also like to invite you to the U.S. Transhumanist Party. Even if you don't wish to join, you may find a wealth if ideas that would be beneficial to Asgardia.
