I’m Scott Neuman and I want to change who is in charge. I want to be your next Congressman from the NJ - 4th Congressional District. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that there are a number of people that should not be in charge anymore. I’m offering an alternative to the current status quo in the 4th Congressional District. There are people that are currently elected, that for various reasons, just don’t want you or others to benefit from very simple changes to the way things get done in this country and state. As your elected Representative, I’d be your voice on those changes that I’ll suggest below and on changes you’ll be suggesting. The items and issues I’m focusing on are also what many people in the Democratic-Republican Party feel would be a welcome change. If you agree, you may want to vote for myself and the other candidates that have stepped up and agreed to lead this change.
What would I like changed?
Hurricane Sandy: As to our district, People affected by Hurricane Sandy are getting screwed. Chris Smith has given up or his party has taken money from the Insurance companies. Insurance companies are running for the hills or using legalese to get around their insurance claims. Flood water is flood water period. I want a bill passed in the House that if your property is insured with flood insurance, the insurance company can’t then back out of the claim by claiming earth movement from the flood waters. It’s ridicules to expect a home owner to buy a flood insurance policy and then be told while the flood waters cause the damage, we have this waiver that says the insurance company doesn’t have to pay for flood damage from land erosion. There would be no land erosion if there was no flood. In addition, it’s unrealistic to accept that some people will pay $66000 a year for insurance but commercial properties will pay next to nothing. No one is looking for a free ride but the new guidelines will cause people to have to sell or leave their homes. The issues from the insurance claims aren’t from people not paying. It’s from money grabs on the account. Money that needs to be returned. You paid it. You’re entitled to the service. Nothing more, nothing less. You have my voice in Congress.
Veterans: Anything they want or need is a done deal in my book. You have my voice in Congress.
More Heady issues below:
First would be the final promulgation of the 1st real amendment of the Bill of Rights. The Right to Free Speech is actually the 3rd amendment of the Bill of Rights. The first real amendment is the Congressional Apportionment Amendment. The amendment guarantees local representation on a federal level and the ability to keep big money out of the game of controlling Congress. Why do people hate politicians? Because we feel you are bought and paid for. And you are. You show that time and time again. I’m running in the NJ-4CD which covers from the far side of western NJ by Hamilton over to eastern NJ’s shore line and up to Red Bank. That’s a huge haul of over 750,000 people. The founders idea was to make sure the districts never got so large that your voice got lost in the shuffle (Hurricane Sandy people, pay attention here). Now on the Jersey Shore, there are tens of thousands of people that are still waiting for the release of federal funds and state funds so their houses can be raised and rebuilt. They had insurance!! For the most part, there are plenty of stories of people that got screwed by the insurance companies that have used loopholes to pay pennies on the dollar to these properly insured families. In addition, the paperwork that has to be presented keeps changing by FEMA. I got lucky by comparison and my insurance paid out but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have friends and family affected for weeks, months and now years by Hurricane Sandy. I was the producer for the “Gotta Keep Trying” video sung by Jesse Shar with photos authorized for use by GreenPeace. Greenpeace doesn’t just give up their photos to anyone. I was hoping to bring attention to Sandy. I didn’t take a penny and the Shar family are life long Ocean County residents with Jesse living in Pt Pleasant when Sandy hit. The Jersey Shore seems to be on the back burner for Chris Smith and as a Ocean County resident, would be on the front burner for me but imagine if the districts were smaller and this huge swath of area were covered by six people, all focused on their areas and working together to fix the shore. Sure, I’m glad the Boardwalk in Seaside got cleaned up. How about the houses? The Bill of Rights guaranteed representation on a smaller scale. This is to your benefit. Both parties decided to ignore this little juicy amendment in the interest of control of the parties but it doesn’t benefit you. Hurricane Sandy shows it by example. You are getting screwed by these larger districts and the Bill of Rights wants to change that. It was thought that the amendment was short one states vote by 1791 when Vermont became the 13th state to vote. NJ was the original 1st state to vote for this amendment. We’re told four states didn’t vote and until 2011, that was thought to be historically correct. In 2011, Connecticut’s archivist with the Democratic-Republican Parties help, was able to find the true and certified vote for the Bill of Rights and that vote was a Yes vote for all 12 amendments. Why Connecticut didn’t know they voted is a mystery and one I long to hear and find out about, but there can be no doubt that Connecticut’s House of Representatives voted for this amendment and what was considered their upper house also voted for all 12 amendments shortly there after. With that vote and Kentucky becoming our 15th state to also vote for all 12 amendments in 1792, we had 80% of the states voting for this amendment and by doing so, ratified it. It’s an amazing story and one I’m proud to be involved in. This will be our countries 28th amendment. With the Democratic-Republican Parties help, the archivist of Connecticuts find was presented to the President, Vice President, the Speaker of the House and other directors and the Archivist of the United States by lawsuit, long lost in their archives. All the people that needed to know about the ratification of this amendment knows. They know about it as does the Archivist of the United States. It’s just a matter of time till it is presented to Congress and our districts will be set correct.
2. I want each elected senator and congressman/woman to sign a pledge that the Democratic-Republican Party has created that repairs unlimited campaign funding by large corporations and PAC’s. We don’t need a new amendment to the Constitution. We just need to change the Senate and House rules. Most people don’t consider Corporations human beings and Corporations can’t vote for elected officers so why do they get to influence your elections and who you vote for? Citizens United was a mistake. I’m standing for a simple solution that only a majority of 535 people have to agree upon. I’m signing a pledge that says that if I accept donations to run for office, that I will not sit on a committee that is directly influenced by that money from a PAC or from Corporate funding that I received. I can still vote on the floor of the House (or Senate if I run for Senate) but that money I accepted will not be used in a special committee to favor an investor. I want all 535 people in House and Senate to do the same thing. Chris Smith can not say that and hasn’t been able to say it for 20 years. Consider all the drones flying over lands that we are not at war with. Chris Smith sits those committees and makes decisions based on the money he has received to create war. Chris Smith cares more about people overseas than he does about Mercer, Ocean and Monmouth Counties. His complete focus should be on this district. Our district first, everyone else around the world? Second. If you vote for Chris Smith, you are voting against your own interests. We’ve gone to war for those decisions that cost US taxpayers trillions of dollars, exploding our national debt ratio to numbers never seen before. I’d like to change that. Vote for Scott Neuman for Congress in the 4th CD and I’ll fight to change the rules in your favor.
3rd. I’d like another simple amendment ratified. The Equal Rights Amendment is long past due to be ratified. There was a time limit but that time limit can be extended. It’s short ratification by only 3 states right now but at one point, there were 40 states ratifying the amendment at one point. Rescinding a ratification vote to my knowledge isn’t allowed but that’s never been tested in court. There was also a time limit as to the length of time this amendment could be considered. That time by the way, did not apply to the Congressional Apportionment Amendment. The Equal Rights Amendment is simple. 50% of you should be screaming for this and 50% of you should be voting for me. No other candidate running in the 4th CD wants this for you.
- Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
- Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
- Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
This all seems pretty simple. You’d have to consider that if you were a voter and a woman, it would be in your best interest to vote for this and to have your elected official stand up for this amendment. NJ has voted for it. At this present time, I can find only two people from NJ that wants to put their name to this. I’ll be the third. Chris Smith is not one of the people you’ll want to vote for in 2014 if this is an important issue for you. Vote for Scott Neuman for Congress and I’ll stand up for the ERA.
Fourth, there are election and ballot issues and laws in NJ that are boring. Regardless of them being boring, they are the laws of NJ and as your Representative from NJ, I wish to stand up for them because when you don’t stand up for them, the problems that our laws don’t allow for will continue. The two minority parties of NJ (and I say minority because neither of them can get even 10% to 15% of their registered voters to the polls to vote for the most important of offices. The offices that protect you from the very crap I’m point out above. Our voting machines are broken. They’ve been broken for decades. Our state congress has stated as much. I want the machines fixed. Fixing the machine would cost 25% of what an election cost. If we haven’t ran the special election last year, the machines could have been fixed. Meaning, everything has a back up and you can prove the votes. You can not do that in NJ at this time. I can think of elections in NJ were the wrong party won and the ballot machines were either broken and gave the wrong totals or worse, they were screwed around with and it was deliberate. Our Federal election forms that the Lt. Governor has to fill out for the last two years have been false. Our Governor knows this and continues to all his staff to break the law. The Ballots the County Clerks create for you to use to vote on the people you want to run the government are designed by law. The County Clerks have broken those laws for the last two years and they know it because they lost in court in 2013 for this very issue and the issues above. There is no doubt this happened and I’d be glad to show proof if you write me and ask for it at firstname.lastname@example.org . I want to stand up and change that. I’ll do the boring work. I just need your vote, so vote for Scott Neuman for Congress in the 4th Congressional District in 2014 and I’ll fight for fair and equal election laws to be followed and not ignored.
I’ll add more as we get closer to the election. I want to work for you. I’m Scott Neuman and I’m for your vote to put me in as your Congressman in the 4th Congressional District of NJ.
