Recruitment Committee to Finalize Screening at February Meeting
Colin R. Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback who refused all season to stand for the national anthem, is under consideration for a position with our party. Kaepernick, a 29-year-old vegan vegetarian, has spoken out strongly against police brutality and racism and shows considerable leadership promise. We, thus, are taking a keen look into the strength of his commitment to egalitarian causes and will determine his qualifications for a party role on that basis.
We are impressed by the fact that this 49er, who won his first, and only, game of the season in late December, is funding a youth concern known as Know Your Rights Camp. We are impressed, further, by the success of his protest in inspiring young people to stand up, or kneel down as it were, for justice. We have chosen, however, to look carefully at the adequacy of his leadership skills off the field, and as well, at the depth of his commitment to such party objectives as ending poverty in the United States and world.
We are vetting Colin on several levels and anticipate reaching a decision on his adaptability to the organization at a meeting of our personnel recruitment committee in late February 2017. That committee will recommend him to the selection committee if its decision is affirmative.

Trump Presidency Not
Our primary objective replicates the objective aspired to by every political party on this planet -- namely, to get control of those governments that would otherwise continue to control and oppress us. In pursuing this aspiration, we endeavor transform the world condition by achieving the following political, socioeconomic, and cultural goals:
Equality Across Humanity
Equality across humanity infers equality in all aspects of human endeavor, including:
Equality in the structure of human relationships
Equality in quality of life conditions
Equality in the yields of production
Equality in the laws
Equality in the world order
Universal employment is an anchor in our program for constructive engagement. By universal employment, we mean an end to unemployment, special employment privilege, and deprived employment privilege. This goal, which engages the whole civilization in constructive occupations, is universal. It especially challenges the wealthy to secure employment, for the requirement that everyone work also deprives everyone of a "special" status.
A second obligation of engagement is occupational rotation, the requirement that everyone rotates work through eleven major occupational categories across the full course of his or her career. Through this system of engagement, everyone shares equally in the best and worst occupations, and as a result, no one suffers a lack of humility.
Deferred Occupational Specialization
In the postmaterial society, no one will have the liberty of specializing in a profession before completing the obligations of engagement. One's decision to specialize is voluntary, but everyone will enjoy this option, in addition to the option to teach, work in a governing function, or retire upon satisfying the obligations of engagement.
Abundance will be the norm, not an exception in our society. With the entire world fairly engaged in constructive occupations, everyone may have multiple homes, but no one may have 10 homes while others have none. Consumer equality will be perfected and absolute, and consumption may only be restricted when restrictions are necessary to avoid depriving future generations of an enriched quality of life livelihood as well.
Through constructive engagement, leisure will flourish under the provisions of our system. For example, there will be six-hour workdays, four-day workweeks, and eight-month work years. The option to retire will occur at age 55, the age at which the citizens shall have completed the obligations of their basic career. But while all workers may retire at this age, they also may choose specialize in a profession, work in a governing function, or teach.
Education will become a system for enlightened understanding under our leadership. We shall achieved an enlightened society through cultivation, and as cultivation advances, the concept of education will be phased out. The enlightenment function, then, will complement the employment obligation, and cultivation will propagate across all careers.
In the postmaterial economy, no one will be burdened with a cost for consumable goods or services. More specifically, freedom will replace money, and with the whole world constructively working, resource abundance and prosperity will flourish. Moreover, everyone will be able to travel freely, enjoy an abundance of leisure, and reap the benefits of social, political, economic, and cultural liberation.
Security Without Arms
In a society in which some are armed and others not, equality does not exist. In our postmaterial future, all weapons will, therefore, be destroyed, including all weapons owned by the government. Moreover, the existence of prisons defy the spirit of equality that propels us as a party. Thus, as the armed forces disarm, all prisoners, everywhere on the planet, will be accorded an unconditional release.
Stop Supporting American Political Parties
For more than two centuries, the political parties in the United States have manipulated, deceived, and failed the American people. They have deliberately failed to end poverty, racism, and criminal injustices. They have deliberately sustained these evils because their egoistic interests require that they do so, and they do not ever intend to eradicate inequality. They do not deserve your support.
Stop Voting in Fraudulent U.S. Elections
The American political system lacks legitimacy. A political system that is born of violence, that is not supported by a majority of voting-age adults, and that refuses to end social, political, and economic inequalities lacks legitimacy and, therefore, lacks the right to exist. It does not deserve your vote.
Stop Honoring U.S. Soldiers
Men and women who travel thousands of miles to kill people on behalf of a country that requires policemen to kill their fellow countrymen do not deserve your honor.
Stop Praising U.S. Policemen
Men and women who pose as law enforcement officers while behaving as thugs do not deserve your praise.
Stop Glorifying U.S. Veterans
Men and women who kill people who neither harm nor threaten to harm them personally do not deserve your glory.
Stop Saluting U.S. Flags
Flags that rise above slums, reservations, and prisons overflowing with racist law enforcement customs do not deserve your salute.
Stop Celebrating U.S. Holidays
Holidays in countries in which homelessness persists while houses, apartment buildings, and condominium dwellings stand lopsided with vacancies do not deserve your celebration.
Stop Consecrating the U.S. Constitution
Constitutions that cops, courts, and government officials themselves ignore do not deserve your concentration -- however packed with rights or entitlements they may appear.
Stop Working in Demeaning Occupations for U.S. Employers
Any job that any other person is exempted from doing is demeaning to you, and it does not deserve your labor.
