CFAR stands for Contract For American Renewal.
But it’s more than a contract, much much more than a legal device. It’s a paradigm-shifting, game-changing way to introduce honesty, integrity, transparency, and accountability, into our electoral process, putting people — the vast majority of U.S. citizens — back in the driver’s seat. It’s government by the people. It’s real representative democracy.
The CFAR is the new standard by which we judge whether a candidate is worthy for office.
The CFAR includes only initiatives that are supported by a minimum of 62% of citizens. Most are in the 75-80% range. The CFAR is a citizens-based, populist strategy.
The CFAR requires in writing from any candidate who signs it that they will faithfully serve those who vote them into office. No questions asked. They either do the job or they find themselves back on the street. Just read the contract. It’s clear and unambiguous.
The CFAR takes the guesswork out of voting. Every initiative in the CFAR is supported by huge majorities. If a candidate signs it, they are clearly on the side of the people. They are guaranteeing in writing that they will be doing the bidding of their constituents from the day they arrive in Washington DC. Thus they deserve our support and our votes.
The CFAR as a populist electoral strategy targets neoliberal, establishment candidates for defeat. And more importantly, it decisively positions “people’s candidates” — progressive-populists — to win, arming them with an ironclad strategic weapon to take on and crush their corrupt, pay-for-play opponents.
The CFAR exposes the phonies and frauds. Voters are tired of shallow campaign rhetoric, vaporous sound bites, empty campaign promises. If a candidate refuses to sign the CFAR, it means two things: 1) He or she is not on the side of the people. 2) This candidate does not deserve to get elected. It’s that straightforward. It’s that simple.
You want a Congress that works for the people?
You want public servants that serve the public?
You want a Congress which is not in the pockets of fat cat campaign donors, not lapdogs of the ruling class, not doormats of the military-industrial-security complex?
Then get behind the CFAR. Get involved!
As a voter, only vote for a candidate who has signed the CFAR.
As a populist-progressive candidate, sign the CFAR and win the election.
As an activist, do everything in your power to alert voters and actively support CFAR candidates.
Together, we can take back our democracy and create and America that works for all Americans, not just the rich and powerful.
