MOUNT VERNON — An alternative political option was presented at an afternoon luncheon to members of the Exchange Club of Mount Vernon and Knox County on Friday. Running as a write-in candidate in the Nov. 8 election for U.S. President is local resident Bruce Jaynes, who presented his campaign platform at the luncheon.

“To establish a new communications system and a consumer-driven government and getting rid of the stoneage political party system,” is why Jaynes said he is running for U.S. President. “I believe that Americans can do the impossible,” he said.

Jaynes referred to the current U.S. financial system as a “pay-to-play” setup. “And you cannot afford it,” he said. His national economic plan, called “Collaborism, Incorporated,” is aimed at reducing costs and improving services nationally.

In believing that the government is the last area to be impacted by technology, Jaynes has developed his own technology called Collaborative Conversations, which he says will, “Provide improved service at a fraction of the cost for the purpose of serving your needs.”

Asking questions and conducting an ongoing survey toward any goal is what he considers a conversation, which is an optimal path toward unity. Jaynes stressed his devotion to calling for unity in our country, noting that this was also stressed by George Washington.

“If we have a collaborative conversation where we come together and join forces, we have just united. We’re probably more divided than we’ve ever been. And if we do not unite as a nation, we are in real trouble.” And in gaining unity as a nation, Jaynes said this means having control over our government.

“And all we need to do is have a communication tool to bring this thing back up and gain control over the government. We need all hands on deck,” Jaynes said.

“I am working to build a consumer-driven government by Nov. 1, 2016,” Jaynes concluded.
