IT'S NOT ABOUT POLITICS!!!
We have been manipulated to be divided against each other in the name of "better government" through politics. Even the nicest neighborhoods are polarized battlegrounds. This has actually been the destruction of communities, economies, families and children.
Good Neighbors hope is to re-purpose the precinct model for thriving , secure and prosperous neighborhoods instead of battle grounds for party politics which enriches only politicians and big corporations leaving us with little hope for a future at best.
There is no political party, nor individual coming to save us. History proves that those we called "leaders" have inhibited our relationships, productivity and liberty.
WE ARE OUR ONLY HOPE!
The plan to meet your neighbors and organize to create neighborhood unity that will produce prosperity and security for those in your neighborhood
This is so simple! Meet your 5 of your nearest neighbors on each side or direction from your home. Have a get together to learn about each others talents, interests, families and needs. It's as easy as a knock on a door, cup of coffee or an outdoor BBQ. Remember, it's not about politics! Acting as neighbors will enrich your lives immensely.
Now that you've met your neighbors, encourage those neighbors to reach out to 5 more. All those reach out to 5 more. The number of involved neighbors is multiplying rapidly.
Throw a block party. Keep it squeaky clean so that families and children are welcome. Hold your get togethers regularly, each neighbor inviting more neighbors each time.
You are effectively creating a real community where children will play securely and people can enrich each other by being friendly and by doing business with each other. Your neighborhood will become safer and self sustaining, no longer dependent on government agents or corporations. This community will greatly inhibit any "bad guy" from mischief among you. And consider this, if you are ever in need of help, who knows best who belongs in your house, a policeman or your neighbor? Who's more likely to shoot the wrong guy or falsely arrest you? Acting as neighbors is how we become secure, free and prosperous again, person to person. CONGRATULATIONS on taking the first step to self governance !!
SIMPLE STEPS TO TURNING THE TABLES ON POLITICIANS & BUREAUCRATS;
TAKING BACK OUR LIVES AND FUTURES
Using the precinct model, the goal is to secure one person per precinct and one person per 100 household units which we call Wards. A precinct consists of about 2,000 homes so with only 20 people the precinct can be divided into wards. Each Ward can be split into Half Wards coordinated by one person each so no one is responsible for more than 50 households. These are no longer "voters" as in the precinct model, they are your "Neighbors"!
To simplify for your Good Neighbors effort you can begin with resources that are easily available like voter records, property and tax records. Breakdown your precinct into small neighborhoods (Thomas Jefferson's Wards).
Good Neighbors Act will assist all Ward and Half-Ward coordinators with support such as educational training sessions. Use our contact page to make a request .
Your Half-Ward Coordinators can recruit helpers following methods already established in precinct organizational guidelines. Remember, it's not for "politics" but for self governing neighborhoods.
Get your Neighborhood Precinct Voter Record
BUT REMEMBER, IT'S NOT ABOUT POLITICS. We're just using the model and structure. Obtain your county’s Voter Record from your local county Board of Elections or from the Secretary of State's website. If it is not already in Excel format, it will most likely be in a comma-delimited format, in which case it can be imported into an Excel program - Click here for instructions.
Create Walking Lists from the Voter Record
After meeting your neighbors you have made more friends than you could have imagined. Do not be concerned with being a leader rather be a facilitator who EMPOWERS your Good Neighbors to have liberty and prosperity.
In our Good Neighbors process, we must seek to empower our neighbors economically. Gather names of entrepreneurs, small businesses and skill sets of your neighbors. Create a local business directory to be shared electronically in your neighborhood. This is easily done with Excel spreadsheet. When the individuals and families again poses wealth, The People will poses great power. Dump the Wall Street and multinational corporations! Go back home to teach your children virtue and real wealth creation. Love your neighbor as yourself! Build real inheritance for our children.
WE ARE OUR ONLY HOPE!

PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
I pledge allegiance to my neighbors and to their liberty; To live free, to stand in defense one another against any intrusion upon God given rights to liberty, property, and peace.
The Founders of The Original Colonies Pledged:
"We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor."
Allegiance to an empire enslaves you, your neighbors and your posterity! LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR!
Ward is a concept promoted by Thomas Jefferson to place most of the functions of government in the Ward, a small subdivision of a county or municipality. Jefferson thought of this concept as his favorite: "The article nearest my heart," wrote Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval in 1816, "is the division of counties into wards." His proposal was that such Wards consist of no more people than can all know one another and personally perform the functions of government for one another. Although his proposal was not generally adopted, there have been partial implementations of the idea in small townships, school districts, voting precincts, and neighborhood associations.
