This website does not have a donate button because my campaign depends on my ability to
unite Americans to solve community and individual problems and create opportunities, or on luck, not on collecting money.
Only people registered to vote in the Democratic Party primary, in U.S. Congressional District 2 in Illinois can directly cast votes for me, on or about 3/19/2024. But everyone everywhere can participate in this effort to unite Americans.

My short book takes about an hour and a half to read the part that I wrote. It also includes copies of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. I used my book as a tool when trying to peacefully unite enough people to effect the changes we needed and wanted to make in our societies, economies, and governments, directly, using cooperative economics. My book is at the Chicago Public Library, and it is available for purchase at Amazon.com and other online retailers.
I am offering to dedicate half of my after-tax royalties from the sale of The New Revolutionary War: An American Firefighter's Dream to Help Save Humanity, up to $100,000,000 (one hundred million dollars), to help create our network.
If the lower fundraising threshold of $5,000,000 is not reached by 2/2/2027, then the royalty sharing offer is automatically rescinded, and the funds that were raised and dedicated to the network, will be donated to a charity, and no further steps will be taken.

Honored to be detailed from CFD Fire Prevention Bureau to help protect the President visiting Chicago in 1999, and actually made the U.S. Secret Service remove the chains from a doorway, which was most likely to serve as the exit for the President during an attempt on his life.
