Since the election of 2000, when Greg Palast broke the story–three months in advance of the election–about the deliberate disenfranchisement of tens of thousands of people of color or liberal inclination, our informal coalition–now a formal accredited coalition–has been working on the concept of a Coalition Cabinet, one designated for public inspection in advance of Election Day. The information below has been previously blogged at The Huffington Post. It is presented for public discussion rather than as a definitive final selection of personalities and policies, as a personal offering from Robert David Steele, Reform Party candidate for the nomination to compete for the Presidency of the United States of America in 2012.
My fellow Americans, I am honored to present to you my thoughts on restructuring and down-sizing the federal government along with a proposed Coalition Cabinet. Many of these names, while stellar, are conventional. I am asking each of you to put forward any suggestions for improving how we govern ourselves. I am strongly inclined to embrace your suggestions by joining your recommended candidates with these candidates to achieve a collective balance at every level of the government, one focused on restoring American the Beautiful.
As I indicated in my first post on 28 September 2010, I believe we must have in addition to the Vice-President, overseeing the Commonwealth; two Secretary-Generals, one for Education, Intelligence, & Research; and the other for Global Engagement (changed from National Security to break the back of the military-industrial complex and the two ubber Services with no shame).
I am proposing for your public deliberation and consent, some consolidations as shown below–indented organizations are subordinate to, and will be represented on the Cabinet by, the principal organization. I have moved the Department of Commerce to serve under the Secreteary General for Global Engagement.
