United States Leadership Election  

Hey there friends, so I've been considering this election for a few days now and realize there is absolutely no way to get votes without asking your friend to vote for you. It is difficult to contact other citizens and being a requirement for a vote it makes the election difficult. So how about we use this forum as a way to give insight on ourselves and why we are running for leadership roles. Please only be part of the election if you are planning to participate actively as Asgardia grows.

In case anyone was wondering. Since the website opened elections there is now a "Blue Vote Bar" under your Candidate picture. So if you would like to vote for the person then that is all you have to click.

You should include:
-Your Name
-Your State
-Short reason why you joined Asgardia on its journey
-Short reason what you will bring to the community.

I will start,

-James Nguyen
-New Jersey (Philadelphia Area)
-I believe in the mission statement of Asgardia and believe in the need to form such a nation for the growth of our world.
-I have been a community leader in my area for sometime, I have worked with youth, organized events and have experience with running workshops. If you guys have been in the Philadelphia area and know what the Lantern Festival is then I can tell you that I was on the Committee to plan the event. There is more so please check out the link below.

So it would be awesome if you could take a little read on me and give me your vote if you support me.

-With Regards,

First and foremost, good luck James.

A nice thread for the elections. I was also looking it over and noticed there needs to be more ways to reach out and this is one way, so thank you. 

Now my name is John McPherson and I am running in Michigan. I am still young at 27 but I have big dreams fueled by a strong imagination. I recognize our constitution and hold those values to be true. I will do my best to be an inspiring leader. 

There are several import topics to talk about so I won't be able to go through each outlet here and now and by no means am I a specialist in probably any of them. I do however understand that spreading general awareness and recognition among the international community is still a priority. We need growth and one easy way to get it is by planting a seed of awareness in the human populations psyche. I also understand that this community will mainly be a digital one. We rest and interact on a digital infrastructure and yes it is important to grow out in a physical one but the digital realm will forever be our crib. Through years of continued support of this community we will be able to gain acces to physical resources to create a physical home for us to reside. This union of people stretches across borders, We leave behind conflict and drama for earth countries to partake in. There is no sense in getting caught up in Earth conflicts because we can and will transcend it to achieve a peaceful and stable nation. Now there will be steps necessary to climb to make it there but we can do it. We already have our community, so lets foster its growth. With a little imagination and hard work we can have access to free education, scholarships, sports teams, charitable organizations, healthcare, and much much more. These are the fruits of successful governments. What's great is we can have these before we make it to space. We can have these things beforce colonizing the moon or mars. In-fact I don't think we would be able to do it the other way around.

I implore each and every one of you to get involved. Spend the time necessary to achieve these big dreams. Be active and don't hold back, Together we can achieve anything and everything. 

Thanks for reading,

John McPherson

The purpose of Asgardia is to obtain recognition from other established nations and the United Nations in the exercise of rights and freedoms restricted in certain territories and environments (space) toward the independent activity of a new body politic (public will).

Having said that, Asgardia cannot proceed based on emotional appeals to the public and vehement hostility toward business, commerce, and industry involved in the operation of government and trade on the terrestrial side of the human population and its social and political arena.  To operate effectively, from a position of non-recognition to one of mutual confidence and benefit, a leader familiar with terrestrial government, law, business, regulation, and technology is essential to our interaction with the United States and its military and strategic partners in the global and celestial territories.  I therefore see no option but to offer my services to that purpose, as the present state of affairs with Asgardia is exceedingly dangerous and vulnerable to failure and permanent consequences in response to our activities and deliverable services today.

I am a corporate officer, Chief Executive Officer from 2009-2017, with business ownership experience and mass communications administration and design experience over nationwide campaigns hosting over 3000 customer service agents for Toshiba America and other companies in the United States - then in the position of Telecommunications Administrator for Sykes Enterprises (SYKE), and later other optical data carrier companies valued at over $7 billion USD.  My contacts extend to NASA and United Nations posts responsible for air and space policy, and in activity spanning 16 years of local political activity in organization of a community for the election of the House, Senate, and President of the United States.  As such, I have reviewed statutory law, common law, Constitutional law, and court process for five counties and two Federal district courts, in support of human rights and protection of individual dignity under the United States Justice System and State Justice Departments.

It is my belief major work needs to be done in the legislative and executive roles of Asgardia to meet and succeed at any mission beyond launching a data storage device, or consider approaching the timeline proposed by leadership already.  My familiarity with securities law, regulation, and construction of offers to ensure compliance and successful trade have resulted in the establishment of two major world virtual and digital securities exchanges in Europe recognized by the United States as in-compliance, and I would like to bring those skills to work toward the benefit of the people of Asgardia in cooperation with existing commerce and trade groups in the United States.

Arguments against this mission and to exclude the United States or pretend corporate leadership is not a factor or a necessary format for our successful operation are disingenuous to the purpose and integrity of the mission statement of Asgardia.

I therefore seek your support to offset the substantial popular vote which appears in the Middle East and other countries in conflict, to support the full recognition of Asgardia by the United States as a potential partner and resource to privatize projects beyond the scope of NASA outside of the United States, and to mitigate the regulatory limitations which have hampered the United States space program for decades.

As a professional web developer, Senior Software Engineer for web applications for SPRINT provided by Nortel Networks, I feel we can and must provide a working website application layer before we can win confidence of any major audience to our capacity to manage sovereignty and aerospace operations.  This includes both the election process, information security of our members, and administrative standards of public free speech which are not universal in all parts of the world as they are known in the United States.  As a publisher for 25 years in registered business and Internet development, from the State of Oklahoma - whose Constitution protects these rights explicitly as inalienable rights (Article II-1, II-3, II-22) and guarantees justice (II-6) with equality before the court, I ask you to allow me to draft your laws and appeal for equality and freedom of expression in Asgardia today.

Sincerely,
James Arnold Allen
