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.  Over the next few days I will reveal my plan on how we can make it happen. 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.

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 / Nov 30, 17 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 / Dec 2, 17 05:44 UTC
