These are the times, that try women’s and men’s souls.
It is going to get worse, before it gets better. Our elections have two components: voting and money. While we still have one person, one vote, $ 14,000,000,000.00 went into our last election. Ever since 1828, with the election of Andrew Jackson and The Second US Bank, we have had corruption of our political campaigns. Throughout our history, politicians have tried to reform our campaign ﬁnance laws, but always coming up woefully short. Always maintaining an incumbents’ advantage to money and therefore to a greater advertising campaign. What evidence is there of the politicians corruption? How does Boeing get to certify their 737 max air planes and not the FAA? How do Wall Street Firms over leverage themselves and get bailed out by YOUR taxpayer dollars? Should the ﬁrms which did not over leverage themselves, be assisted in buying the bankrupt ﬁrms? How do pharmaceutical companies get to sell opioid medications with 30 day prescriptions, when the medications are addictive after 5 days? Do we want a level playing ﬁeld? Do we want more and better candidates to elect? Do we want ideas to be the dominant currency in our elections, rather than money? Do we want to stop the corrupters donating from outside our district or state to OUR candidates? When Democracy is deﬁned as government of, by and for the people, do we want corporations and unions infringing on OUR political elections? What will happen if our federal elected oﬃcials do not ratify this 28th Amendment? Will there be a revolution? Do Americans always ﬁght for their democracy? Will citizens storm the Capital? They already did!
Do we want politicians to raise money for their campaigns, and then pay themselves a salary from their campaign account. Is this money laundering? Is this bribery? It’s more corruption!
This website predicts, there will be a Second American Revolution, if this 28th Amendment is not ratiﬁed. This website’s intention is to prevent the violence, the loss of lives and catastrophic destruction of the Second American Revolution and to provide fair and open elections. If the COVID 19 pandemic hasn’t taught you that we are all in this together, we WILL learn this lesson with the 28th Amendment. Groups as far apart as Black Lives Matter and the Proud Boys will realize, they are both disenfranchised by this Plutocracy and denied representation because of the vast sums of money that ooze into our elections. As you read the 28th Amendment, please keep in mind that our government is on a continuum. We are always improving and moving our government down a path to a greater representative Democracy (ie. The Emancipation Proclamation, the 19th Amendment, etc.). The 28th Amendment is just the next step.
So what is the strategy to throw these corrupt elected oﬃcials out of oﬃce?
- Raise money
- Send out a survey. Identify who will work and vote to ratify the 28th Amendment. Those elected oﬃcials, who will work and vote for the 28th Amendment will not be targeted for removal from oﬃce in the 2022 election. Those who will not vote for it will be targeted for removal from oﬃce. Those who do not return the survey will be deemed apathetic or incompetent and will be targeted for removal from oﬃce. The greater the leadership position of the opposing legislator, the greater the ﬁnancial resources will be applied to their defeat. Determine which Senators are not up for re-election and have recall elections
- Increase donations and give email update.
- Conduct a Nonviolent Protest Rally in Washington DC.
- Remove Senators, who will not ratify the 28th Amendment, from oﬃce. The various states will have diﬀerent requirements for recalling their Senators.
- Ask for more contributions and give email updates.
- In the 2022 elections, we will campaign against the Congresspeople, who will not ratify the 28th Amendment, describing them accurately as antidemocratic. Without regard to their party aﬃliation, devote larger sums of advertising money to the races of the leadership of both parties.
- Have thirty eight (75%) state legislatures ratify the 28th Amendment. This method requires more elected oﬃcials to vote to ratify the amendment.
- Celebrate the return of American Democracy.
This will be an arduous, hard ﬁght for the power and control over our elections, but we will win because we have to win. The status quo will not remain. Do Americans always ﬁght for their democracy? This website does explain why we do not have a democratic government. But the whole purpose of add28.net is to prevent the violence, destruction and death of a revolution. This purpose is to peacefully ratify the 28th Amendment through Rule of Law.
God bless America.

Brian L. McCarthy is the director of the 527 Political Action Committee, add28.net. He grew utterly disgusted with the corruption of our Federal Government. The corruption was all legal because the politicians made the laws. Death, addiction and the loss of our taxpayer dollars are produced by this corruption. He cannot change the government by himself. Only unified citizens can make the necessary changes to have a true representative, Democratic republic.
The Director’s salary, of three thousand dollars a month, will not begin until the assets of add28.net reach one million dollars. There will be a monthly bonus of 8.3 basis points or .00083% based on the monthly balance of the organization.
If we are successful in ratifying the 28th Amendment, without having to purchase advertising, then, after expenses are paid, donations will be made to the U S Treasury, state Departments of Revenue, Cities, Foundations or charitable organizations.
