Welcome to "GoKatsura2016"/CA Advanced Independents, not to be confused with the Independent Party or Tea Party Independents. We are the "GENERATIONS OF RAMEN/ANIME/SUSHI" which was spawned from the 80s GENERATION AND BEYOND IN AMERICA AND AROUND THE WORLD! www.myspace.com/kenkatsura
We are (or strive to be) "on the cutting edge" in all respects. Unlike the other "Independent" organizations, we are into the arts, global and cultural pursuits, freedom of speech and expression, the most comprehensive and strategic socioeconomics, pursuits of intelligence in all fields of endeavour, and all within the context of being devoted to our nation, our version of "nationalism" and our interests of ADVANCEMENT.
Join me as we advanced our nation forward! I believe in a "colorblind society." I believe in a "demand side" economy vs. our current and past "supply side" economy which is "strategically and intellectually anitquated" (see blog "Katsura Economic Plan for America 2016" that places money in your hands first and then you create jobs by spending your dollar votes throughout the economy.)
I employ "cutting edge" economic strategies to absolutely ensure that Americans, as consumers, guarantee that "demand" is ever present by guaranteeing that Americans have plenty of money to spend! To do this I increase the minimum wage incrementally, but substantially, over successive business quarters and keep the minimum wage high. This allows consumers to freely spend and produce DEMAND. WITHOUT CONSUMERS HAVING MONEY, SPENDING AND PRODUCING DEMAND, THERE IS SIMPLY NO NEED FOR BUSINESSES TO CREATE JOBS BECAUSE THERE IS NO NEED FOR THE EXTRA LABOR. BUSINESSES ARE NOT GOING TO SIMPLY CREATE JOBS FOR EMPLOYEES WITH NOTHING TO DO BUT GET PAID! THEREFORE, YES, BUSINESSES ARE LYING WHEN THEY SAY THEY'LL CREATE JOBS IF THEY'RE GIVEN A TAX BREAK. WHY WOULD THEY CREATE JOBS IF GIVEN A TAX BREAK IF THERE IS NO DEMAND FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AS A RESULT OF CONSUMERS HAVING NO MONEY TO SPEND? WHY WOULD BUSINESSES CREATE JOBS WHERE PEOPLE HAVE NOTHING TO DO BUT GET PAID? NO DEMAND, NO NEED FOR MORE LABOR! OF COURSE THEY'RE NOT GOING TO CREATE JOBS IF THEY'RE GIVEN A TAX BREAK! THIS IS AN OUTRIGHT LIE . . .
SO, IN ORDER FOR BUSINESSES TO CREATE JOBS, WE HAVE TO "FORCE" THEM TO CREATE JOBS USING "CONSUMER DEMAND." WE DO THIS BY OVERWHELMING THEM WITH NEW DEMAND FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES, SINCE FOLKS WILL HAVE LOTS MORE MONEY TO SPEND AS A RESULT OF THE MASSIVE INCREASE IN THE MINIMUM WAGE, THAT BUSINESSES "HAVE TO" HIRE MORE PEOPLE.
FURTHERMORE, AS THE WAGES OF AMERICANS' ARE INCREASED, WE CAN ALSO SLIGHTLY INCREASE THE SOCIAL SECURITY TAX AND THE SOCIAL SECURITY CRISIS IS SOLVED! HOW 'BOUT THAT, AMERICA?! . . .
YOU SEE, THEIR "BAD ECONOMIC PLAN" IS NOTHING MORE THAN GENERATING TEMPORARY "DEMAND" BY TEMPORARILY "LOWERING PRICES." THIS, THEY SAY, SOLVES THE PROBLEM BY CREATING "DEMAND." IT NEVER LASTS AND ONLY BENEFITS BUSINESS, NOT THE CONSUMERS, OVER THE TERM. FURTHERMORE, IT DOESN'T GENERATE JOBS ON A MACRO, CONSISTENT AND ONGOING BASIS, WHICH, IN TURN, PROVIDES AMERICANS WITH THEY THINGS THEY NEED ON A CONSISTENT AND ONGOING BASIS - NOR DOES THEIR PLAN GENERATATE THE TAX REVENUES FOR SOCIAL SECURITY, INFRASTRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENT, PENSIONS AND THE LIKE. THE "KATSURA ECONOMIC PLAN FOR AMERICA 2016," . . . DOES.
AT THE SAME TIME, I'M GOING TO PLACE A "MORTGAGE CAP" ON HOME BUYERS AND BANKS. ULTIMATELY, BORROWERS WILL BE ONLY BE ELIGIBLE FOR HOME LOANS EQUAL TO THEIR ANNUAL SALARIES LESS THEIR ANNUAL INCOME TAXES! THIS WILL FORCE THE PRICES OF HOMES SCREAMING DOWNWARD BACK TO EARLY 1980s/LATE 1970s LEVELS. NO MORE 10, 15 OR 20 YR MORTGAGES, EITHER. YOU CAN ONLY BORROW THE AMOUNT OF YOUR ANNUAL SALARY AND IT MUST BE PAID OFF IN 5 to 7 YEARS.
- CONSUMERS ARE LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE OF ONLY ONE HOME IN A GIVEN YEAR WITH SUCH HOME LOANS/MORTGAGES (PREVENTS HOARDING OF HOMES)
- CONSUMERS MUST COMPLETELY PAY OFF THEIR EXISTING MORTGAGE BEFORE THEY ARE ABLE TO ASSUME ANOTHER FOR THE PURCHASE OF ANOTHER HOME
- CONSUMERS WILL HAVE A YEAR MORTATORIUM (WAIT PERIOD) AFTER PAYING OFF THEIR MORTGAGES BEFORE THEY CAN ASSUME ANOTHER MORTGAGE
- MORTGAGES CAN ONLY BE ASSUMED BY A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL; NO JOINT OR GROUP MORTGAGES
- IN THE EVENT OF A BORROWER LOSING THEIR JOB, THE MORTGAGE MAY THEN BE TRANSFERED TO A WORKING SPOUSE
- YOU HAVE 7 YEARS MAXIMUM TO PAY OFF ENTIRE MORTGAGE AND NO PENALTY IF PAY OFF SOONER (FROM 5 YEARS FORWARD) THAN 7 YEARS
- DEVELOPERS WILL BE PROVIDED A "SUBSTANTIAL TAX BREAK" FOR "SELLING HOMES TO PRODUCE HOMEOWNERS" RATHER THAN USING THEM FOR "RENTAL PURPOSES"
WHAT THIS ACHIEVES IS TO PROVIDE CONSUMERS WITH MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF CASH THAT THEY WOULD OTHERWISE SPEND ON A HOME. IT ALSO PREVENTS MONEY FROM BEING HOLED UP INTO A SINGLE INDUSTRY (MORTGAGE). CONSUMERS WITH ALL THE ADDITIONAL CASH WILL SPEND IT "THROUGHOUT" THE ECONOMY, LIKE BEES POLLENTATING A FIELD. THIS IS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY'S HEALTH. SO YOU GET EVEN MORE MONEY, HERE, ALONG WITH YOUR MASSIVE INCREASE IN YOUR MINIMUM WAGE. THIS, IN TURN, WILL CREATE UNIMAGINABLE CREDIT WORTHINESS FOR CONSUMERS AND BANKS, SINCE YOU'LL PAY OFF YOUR LOWER COST HOMES EASILY AND IN LESS TIME. BOTH CONSUMERS AND BANKS WILL HAVE VERY GOOD CREDIT.
THE MORTGAGE CAP STRATEGY ALSO TRANSFORMS AMERICANS INTO "HOMEOWNERS" RATHER THAN MOSTLY RENTERS. THE "MASSIVE FAILURE" OF THE "LEFT WING ELITE" IS THAT RENTERS DEVELOP "NO EQUITY" AND THE LEFT WING ELITE HAS BEEN EXPLOITING RENTERS WITHOUT CONSIDERING THEIR NEEDS FOR LONG TERM BUILDING OF FINANCIAL EQUITY. IN SHORT, RENTERS "GET NOTHING" FROM ALL THEIR YEARS OF RENTING, AND THEY SHOULD! MY ECONOMIC STRATEGY GIVES AMERICANS THE BEST CHANCE OF BECOMING "HOMEOWNERS" AND BUILDING THE LONG TERM FINANCIAL EQUITY THAT THEY DESERVE. HOW 'BOUT THAT, AMERICA?!
WITH THE MASSIVE INCREASE IN HOME OWNERSHIP IN OUR NATION, WE ALSO HAVE A CONCURRENT MASSIVE CAPABILITY TO REAP PROPERTY TAXES TO HELP "REBUILD AMERICA'S INFRASTRCTURE" (ROADS, HIGHWAYS, SCHOOLS, FACILITIES) AND CREATE GOVERNMENT JOBS, AS WELL!
BOTH GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND THE PRIVATE SECTORS WILL HAVE FAR, FAR LESS OF A RELIANCE UPON "UNIONIZATION" SINCE MOST OF THEIR CHALLENGES WILL BE SOLVED BY THE "KATSURA ECONOMIC STRATEGY FOR AMERICA 2016" . . .
FURTHERMORE, THERE WILL BE NEW DEMAND TO BUY HOMES, SINCE THEIR PRICES WILL BE SO MUCH LOWER! BOTH REAL ESTATE AND BANKS WILL MAKE THEIR PROFITS ON "VOLUME." THE "MORTGAGE CAP" WILL ALSO CREATE DEMAND FOR "BUILDING HOMES" AND CREATE JOBS IN CONSTRUCTION! NEW JOBS WILL BE PRODUCED IN THE MORTGAGE, REAL ESTATE AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRIES JUST TO KEEP WITH WITH . . . THAT'S RIGHT . . . DEMAND . . . FOR NEW HOMES!
FURTHERMORE, WITH SUCH HUGE DEMAND, BUSINESSES, IN GENERAL, WILL PROFIT ENORMOUSLY WITH ALL THE NEW DEMAND! THEY WILL ALSO RECEIVE HUGE AMOUNTS OF INVESTMENT CAPITAL VIA THE STOCK MARKET FROM ALL THE EXTRA MONEY CONSUMERS WILL HAVE FROM THE SAVINGS ON THEIR HOMES. THE STOCK MARKET WILL SIMPLY "GO INTO OUTER SPACE" AS A RESULT OF ALL THE NEW INVESTMENT CAPITAL CONSUMERS WILL POSSESS.
SOME OF YOU MAY, AT FIRST, FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE WITH SUCH DRAMATIC CHANGES. FOR EXAMPLE, SOME BELIEVE THAT SUCH INCREASES IN THE MINIMUM WAGE IS "UNHEARD OF!" MY RESPONSE TO THIS IS, "YOU'RE RIGHT!" AND WE SHOULD HAVE "HEARD OF IT" A LONG TIME AGO!
REMEMBER THAT HOME PRICES HAVE GONE UP APPROX. "1700 TO 1900 PERCENT" SINCE THE LATE 1970s/EARLY 1980s! THE MINIMUM WAGE, BY CONTRAST, HAS GONE UP ABOUT "200 PERCENT," IF THAT! NOTICE THE IMBALANCE? THIS, MY FELLOW AMERICANS, IS REALLY THE "CRUX OF THE PROBLEM." THIS IS WHY THE ECONOMY, ULTIMATELY IS "OUT OF WHACK." THIS DISPARITY, THIS IMBALANCE IN THE ECONOMY IS THE REAL MATTER AT HAND.
IT IS INTERESTING THAT BUSINESS FEELS "WORRIED" ABOUT SUCH A MASSIVE INCREASE IN THE MIN. WAGE, EVEN INCREMENTALLY. THEY DIDN'T SEEM TO HAVE SUCH "MASSIVE FEARS" ABOUT THE INCREASING COST OF HOMES OVER THE PAST 17 YEARS, DID THEY?
FINALLY, THE CURRENT AND PAST NATIONAL ECONOMIC STRATEGIES LEAVE AMERICANS WITHOUT THE THINGS THEY NEED WHILE BUSINESS HOARDS MONEY AND DOESN'T PRODUCE JOBS. WORSE STILL, AMERICANS ARE PLACED IN POVERTY (CA-5 million under the povertly level, more than the entire pop. of Los Angeles County). WITH SUCH MASSIVE POVERTY, AMERICANS ARE HUNGRY, UNSHELTERED AND THEY HAVE NO CIVIL RIGHTS IN PRACTICE OR ACTUALITY. IN SHORT, AMERICANS ARE "INDENTURED SERVANTS." THIS IS WHAT BEING AN "AMERICAN" HAS BECOME . . .
I believe that my "demand side" economic strategy will solve the financial healthcare, housing and student loan crisis that we've seen building up over many years and finally collapsing in a heap of uncovered corruption, fraud, conspiracy and lack of accountability. I believe that the government student loan borrowers since the 1980s should be "relieved of their student debt either entirely or partially according to years victimized by this gross financial and government conspiracy which exploits Americans and sends them to financial ruin." Using my economic strategy, there will be no more need for student loans, America! You can mark my words on that! No more need for government student loans! My economic strategy will make healthcare, housing and higher education affordable while massively increasing income, savings and credit not only for the average American, but for the financial industry of scale, as well, making our nation, America, the strongest financial, credit worthy and economic power that history has ever seen. www.myspace.com/kenkatsura
I also believe in a strong "cutting edge" military and advanced "socio-military" strategic organization and planning which is cost effective and "globally ready." Please join me as we "rebuild and reinvent our nation" not by "lowering the bar," but by raising it while providing Americans with the financial and resource wherewithall to truly live, not merely survive under a "Machiavellian" system "soft indentured servanthood" and/or "soft apartheid" and/or "soft fascism" . . . when this is COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY. I am "shocked and amazed" at the "massive downfall" of our state (CA) and of America and the global community as a result of combination of "megalomaniacal, narcissistic sadomasochistic and martyr complexed" leadership and social values in our nation, cultivated by a "deeply troubled and seriously misguided" generation. We must and will fix such horrific misguidedness, together . . .
I am what is referred to as a "prodigious savant" having "savant syndrome" (see "prodigious savantism"/"savant syndrome" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savant_syndrome) within the social sciences. Many of the answers our nation and global community seek are already within my blogs for your review and inspection (please ask me if you have any questions rather than "assume" - thanks). www.myspace.com/kenkatsura
We thank you for your interest and the possibility that you will become part of a Presidential campaign for 2016. At this time we are providing general information about Ken Katsura and the forum to network with others with similar interests, as well. Both "GoKatsura2016" and "CA Advanced Independents" is in the conceptual stage and we are not a campaign having anything to do with the request or exchange of donations or other forms of transaction of a financial nature. In fact, we hope to keep voter money in their pockets rather than place it into the hands of a campaign by starting much earlier than most campaigns!
We're hoping to become an "e-campaign" and a "virtual campaign" to radically reduce the funds it takes to run and win a presidential campaign and also to reduce our "carbon footprint" to the most minimum levels possible (eliminating or radically reducing air & vehicle transporation, etc.). We also would like to reduce the dangers and risks posed by "town hall meetings" and other "get togethers" as many Americans need not risk themselves by travel through bad weather and hazardous roadway conditions, traffic, etc. Have you ever met the person you voted for? Neither have I! But, you still voted, didn't you? Meeting or seeing a candidate is "no longer necessary" and should not place you or your significant others at unnecessary risk just to support or get to know a candidate for any level of offie. :) I would like to use advanced technology and advanced organizational skills to achieve this, such as Cisco's holographic beam-in, video teleconferencing, and Internet broadcasting. I would like to create "pods" of prepared teams to carry out "mobile" large screen TV videoteleconferencing equipment so that I can efficiently videoteleconference with the public at locations wherever we chose while I will remain at a single location. This will require the assembly of such "pods" in strategic locations throughout each of the 50 states.
I pledge to bring this nation and the global community to heights never before reached by any civilization in human history. Vote "Ken Katsura" for 2016 . . . because it's YOUR FUTURE. www.myspace.com/kenkatsura
