"In the presence and under the blessings of the Supreme Being (...), ignorance, forgetfulness and scorn against human rights are the only causes of public un-happiness and the corruption of Governments" Preamble of the Declaration of the Rights of Man, August 26, 1789
“The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something. The millions who are in want will not stand by silently forever while the things to satisfy their needs are within easy reach.” Address at Oglethorpe University, May 22, 1932 (F.D. ROOSEVELT)
"The best speaker of the evening - judging from audience reactions - was ChristianPierreJoubert who is running for Governor. His issues were health and prosperity but it was how he spoke to us that got us with him in just two minutes. Then he handled a couple snarky questions from a couple of well known political junkies who like to bait candidates. He absolutely dissed them. "Are you liberal or conservative?" "Well, I am both at different occasions. I have a left brain and a right brain and I like to use them both." Watch for this guy. You will enjoy listening to him and he says things that make sense".

THE FIVE PRIORITIES OF THE 2012 CAMPAIGN
"The person who has ideas and carries out reforms will find himself embattled by those whose profits and privileges will be threatened by those reforms. But those who will stand to gain (most) from those reforms quite often do nothing ... and this is the greatest impediment to change." (Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince, published 1515)
"First priority: Equal and affordable access to holistic health-care, because without wellbeing, Life has litte appreciative value. Second priority: Equal and affordable access to Justice and fundamental freedoms comes next, because without access to the courts, we can not vindicate and protect health and our other basic rights.Third priority: Equal and affordable access to relevant education is also a top concern because without relevant knowledge, it is difficult to satisfy one’s basic needs in terms of food, shelter, jobs and security. Fourth priority: Equal access to sustainable and ethical work. Because without sustainability and bio-diversity, there will be war, diseases and more debts, all of which will torpedoe our last central basic right (fifth priority), equal access to collective security. These Constitutionally required priorities are all holistically and synergistically inter-empowering".
FOR 2016: PRIORITIZING HOLISTIC WELLBEING
"All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed..." (first paragraph of the Washington State Constitution)
For the next gubernatorial round, (if we do this again) our contribution will be to propose the same Holistic Governance Action plan we proposed in 2008 and refined in 2012, (more than 200 pieces of proposed legislation and proposed executive orders), but with more emphasis on the need to reduce the country's cancer and chronic diseases epidemics which keep on getting worse and stressing the Nation out. Priorities need to be reorganized. And our right to benefit from physical, emotional and spiritual health is the most important of our basic rights, without which all of the other rights can't be appreciated and often, can't even be vindicated. Thanks to the signing of a series of specific urgent public health executive orders (the details of which will be online in 2016), Washington State would be able to see significant results within six months to 2 years, (with over 50 percent reduction in all chronic illnesses), thanks to which the budget will be much stronger and the people healthier, wealthier and happier.
For any meaningful "public health" and "paradigm shift" happenings to occur within our lifetime, many old divisive laws must be composted and-or overriden via executive orders, popular referenda and-or constitutional amendment, including, but not limited to the repression of health freedoms, the absence of meaningful access to civil justice for the majority via a "civil Gideon" statute, the lack of investing in a sustainable economy and the promotion of bribery-based election statutes (Cf McCutcheon v FED and Citizens United via link).
Responsible and informed voters who understanding and-or are sensitive to holistic thinking need to pro-actively express their consent to be guided via a holistic wellbeing government which will help to teach the People to be pro-actively healthy and sustainable while putting in place all of the institutional conditions that will transform holistic wellbeing and "public happiness" into reality, in conformity with the exigencies of our time and the inherent nature of both the State and the Federal Constitutions. Today's chronic diseases, rampant stress, pervasive violence, destructive greed and narrow mindedness are less the result of "fate" than the consequence of refraining from holistic thinking and being afraid to embrace the "Peace among Nations" sentiment.
"Peace is not a passive nor definitive state, a kind of Dead Sea where the river of History goes to die. On the contrary, peace is a state of high human activity which mobilizes the highest functions of the human spirit. Peace requires a continuous creation of new values, new emotions, new ways of thinking. It is only at this price that our new institutions that peace requires can live. In a word, Peace is the highest and most arduous form of the Universal Revolution." (MADARIAGA, President of the "Thirteen", League of Nations)
"It often happens in History that what appears to be a universal truth during one period is such an absurdity in another that the only difficulty is to imagine how such a belief could have been credible in the first place". (JOHN STUART MILLS, Author of "On Liberty" and father of modern economic freedoms).

"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” Patrick Henry.
(Patrick Henry, the former governor of Virginia whose battle cry of Give "Me Liberty or Give Me Death" gave new meaning to the American struggle against George III's oppression).
"If the Greens seem too enamored of taxes and cops, consider gubernatorial candidate Christian Pierre Joubert. This earnest Democrat wants to build in Washington “a Spiritual Civilization based on holistic medicine, alternative energy, affordable housing” and freedom from hunger—this last, from “tree planting, vineyards, organic agriculture, health restaurants and the distribution of ‘superfoods’ (including but not limited to amazing dopamine-producing raw vegan chocolate mousses).” SEATTLE TIMES, editorial of Bruce RAMSEY, August 2, 2008.
