Healing the political divide by building a Citizens Political Professional Organization (CPPO) & learning how to govern for all.
The Federalist (later known as The Federalist Papers) is a collection of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay under the pseudonym "Publius" to promote the ratification of the United States Constitution. The first 77 of these essays were published serially in the Independent Journal, the New York Packet, and The Daily Advertiser between October 1787 and April 1788. A two-volume compilation of these 77 essays and eight others was published as The Federalist: A Collection of Essays, Written in Favor of the New Constitution, as Agreed upon by the Federal Convention, September 17, 1787 by publishing firm J. & A. McLean in March and May 1788. The collection was commonly known as The Federalist until the name The Federalist Papers emerged in the 20th century.
"The authors of The Federalist intended to influence the voters to ratify the Constitution. In "Federalist No. 1", they explicitly set that debate in broad political terms:
"It has been frequently remarked, that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not, of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend, for their political constitutions, on accident and force."
Who am I?
I am Gregory David Spehar, a US Citizen that has seen several decades of change that has not strengthened the United States of America, I have several degrees, I have attended over 12 different Universities, I speak read and write multiple languages, I have worked in many companies from healthcare to energy to non-profit organizations. I have worked on and lead over 30+ projects to success. I was born in the Mid-West and have family throughout the United States. I have traveled and lived abroad and have family that are international. My efforts with Federalist 2.0 is to help my future family and my community continue to survive. I worry that, given our political trajectory, the United States will become a figment of our imagination within 50 years. I have no affiliation to any political group, I do not know any political group leadership, I do not have any alignment to any company that pushes any perspective, I am free to choose my political direction and to focus on what it means to set sights on how we can put into place the mechanisms that can keep us heading toward TRUE NORTH**.
I request that people DO NOT try to find me and contact me outside of these channels to preserve my own privacy so I can continue to work, and I can continue to have positive relationships in my family and with my friends. More importantly, if I am truly able to remain publius I will be able to best support contributors to the site and remain agnostic to any cause or influence. (Another reason to remain as pulius, without donated support or advertising support provides no incentive for me to skew results with the intent to secure more funding. Finally, you will NOT FIND anything advocating for violence against anyone or anything, you will find descriptions about why this might happen, but this sight is fully and completely focused on Peaceful means of obtaining political power, and maintaining political power, through the constitutional mechanisms set forth in the US Constitution as defined and ratified in 1788. Please see the Non-Discrimination and Non-Violence Commitment below.) NOTE: I am a real person with a family and work, I have been verified on Parler and I commit to ensuring your identity is protected if we engage in discussions on this subject. Feel free to reach out to me in private chat on Parler.
**TRUE NORTH: The notion of a TRUE NORTH heading is the idea that there is a method of thought that is spiritual in nature that is morally sound within the context of God. This notion and belief in ONE TRUE GOD provides a moral approach to how the world is viewed and how cultural and political decisions can and should be made to minimize the pain some groups endure given a political class's governing approach. TRUE NORTH maximizes an individual's ability to cleanse their soul, sharpen their character and build a sustainable society through wealth generation.
Commitment to Non-Discrimination and Non-Violence
Adopted by the Board of Directors on 2019-08-04
Federalist2.org does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring, and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an accepting environment and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.
Federlist2.org is an equal opportunity employer. We will not discriminate and will take affirmative action measures to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, upgrading, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the bases of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
Federalist2.org does not advocate for and does not associate with those that would advance their own causes or causes associated with the Federalist 2.0 Philosophy through violence. The essence of the Federalist 2.0 Philosophy is the fact that people of a nation will migrate to the political system they deserve. If they have built a society on corruption and deceit, they will have a burdensome society and will migrate to a dictatorship or sole tyranny. A society built on Virtue and Action will build a political system that supports the natural growth of wealth to the benefit of all. Within this concept, there is no place for violence. There is only open discussion and encouraging others to take the same course.
If a Federalist 2.0 member IS in a place where their lives are in danger, we do advocate for them to take action based on self-defense. And in these cases, if they are known, the standing Federalist 2.0 Board of Directors will address each instance along with the related materials from the police to determine if the case at hand was relevant to the Defense of Self test. If a member is found to NOT have acted in self-defense and was desiring to advance their own political position or pretend they were acting on the Federalist 2.0's behalf, the Board of Directors will issue a statement that will indicate the Individual in question was acting on their own interest and has been immediately terminated from the membership pool of the Federalist 2.0 organization.
What do we hope to answer?
Within this organization we hope to answer some key questions through the following approach:
Building New Federalist Papers that answer such questions as:
What is the goal of every society?
What are the challenges to achieve this goal?
What must the political class have to achieve this goal?
How must these competing interests be partitioned to meet those needs?
Building New Principles from those papers:
What were the old and new papers trying to say from a set of principles?
How should those principles be organized?
What perspective did the Old Federalist Papers try to hold?
How can we articulate those principles in today's world?
Building a Unified Theory that attempts to integrate all aspects of perspectives to explain a Societal Goal:
How does each perspective compare to other perspectives?
What does wealth play in those perspectives?
What role does God play within this context? (Why do the founding fathers speak so much about God?)
How can this view point impact the New Principles across society and the tools such as Media?
Building the Tools/Applications to measure and track the individual, group and society as a whole as to what perspective they are headed:
How do you measure the media narrative?
Can you measure an individual's perspective?
Can you create tools and applications to reward people for those perspectives?
Can you build tools that would enforce a perspective for the best interest of society, minimizing the impact to all groups?
This approach and theory came from efforts some 15+ years ago and have been sitting dormant for some time. Given the level of discord around the world and in the United States, there needs to be an effective discussion around what it means to Govern. To ensure no influence is made to drive the conversation and to drive the direction of this discussion, I am running Federalist 2.0, LLC as a for Profit until I can raise enough cash and attract the right partners to create the Non-Profit. We will be setting this up as a Non-Profit as the end goal, but are NOT TAKING ANY DONATIONS at this time, but we are raising Cash to set the stage to take Donations. Please see the following Campaign2021 Federalist 2.0 Patreon and GiveSendGo.
To best find contributors, all outlets and published content will be NON-MONETIZED. Part of the vision for this Project is to have people provide content from their own works, where I post them here on this project and reference their works to help them drive content and traffic to their sites.
This project is intended to provide a mechanism for the common citizen to properly understand how politics, economics and theological ideas are and can be intertwined into society. With that influence on each other, we can begin to make sense of the world and different points of view. Most importantly we can define systems and tools that the common citizen can count on to protect their liberty and freedom. These efforts are intended to fight back on the powers that look to control the citizens at their own expense to further the power and influence of the political elite. In essence, we are working to build a Professional Organization for the common citizen to limit and reduce the impact of policy decisions that negatively impact a common citizen's own life.
My hope is to have a conversation where we can build a community that can answer and build the tools that we need to make the business of Politics more civilized and less emotional and more to the statement as noted in Federalists #1:
