It Is Horrifying

How Do You Tell This Story?

There is no one way or no best way to tell the story of a man driven by others to take his life. I know, because I have been trying to explain to state leaders, media, and professionals how this is happening to good people who trust our legal system to work to protect them and their children. Challenging doesn’t even touch it. Author Mike Volpe…Read More
How would you better the court system on Child custody?
I am a children's rights activist. I have watched my stepson go through torture from his own mother before the courts actually did anything about it. 

His mother had TWO evaluations done that said exactly what kind of person she is, yet the judges refused to even look into this and continue to give her unsupervised visitations

Now, a new judge has taken the place of the other judge due to the old judge getting a promotion. This new judge has given the biological mother way more than what she deserves and has even stated that she has not done her homework on the case, but gives into this narcissistic persons demands. 
If you were elected president, how would you fix the corruption in child custody areas? 

Please remember our children are our future. If our children are mentally, psychologically, emotionally, etc. abused, how are they suppose to lead future generations?

Do you support a presumption of equal parental fitness, regardless of gender, being enshrined in law in accordance with the 14th Amendment?
Currently, there are laws, standards, and practices that--when combined--constitute discriminatory policies in Family Court jurisdictions particularly against fathers. By extension, these violate the rights of children. 

Family Courts violate the Equal Protection Clause and Due Process Clause as a standard practice by relegating one parent to "Custodial" and another to "Non-Custodial", most often along gender lines. 

The Supreme Court and Federal Circuit courts have long upheld the Parent-Child relationship as being so fundamental as to warrant EXTENSIVE due process protections. 

There is consensus in the psychological community that shared parenting is in the best interests of children more often than not. Aside from the Constitutional Law violations, would it not stand to reason that shared parenting should be the standard, instead of the rare exception in separation/child custody issues?

Family Law needs serious reform, and Family Courts should not be empowered to create master/slave dynamics--again, especially along gender lines--without each parent having Due Process observed, and observed equally. Each parent should be on equal footing walking into a courtroom. Our children deserve to have both parents scrutinized by the same standards. That is in their "best interest". 

A rebuttable presumption of shared parenting should be the starting point in all jurisdictions. The parent and/or state should have the burden of proof placed on their shoulders to prove the other parent as "unfit" or "less than fit" in order to deviate from the shared parenting presumption. The concept is the same as "presumption of innocence". 

In the vast majority of cases, one parent(usually the father), has to overcome higher standards of proof to approach equality in parenting. Shared parenting presumptions begin to level the playing field, which is in our children's best interest. Family Law Reform needs to be an election topic in 2016

Fatherlessness is associated with almost every societal ill facing our country’s children. How can you address the fatherlessness epidemic?
An estimated 24.7 million children (33%) live absent their biological father.

Of students in grades 1 through 12, 39 percent (17.7 million) live in homes absent their biological fathers.
57.6% of black children, 31.2% of Hispanic children, and 20.7% of white children are living absent their biological fathers.

According to 72.2 % of the U.S. population, fatherlessness is the most significant family or social problem facing America.
Among children who were part of the “post-war generation,” 87.7% grew up with two biological parents who were married to each other. Today only 68.1% will spend their entire childhood in an intact family.

With the increasing number of premarital births and a continuing high divorce rate, the proportion of children living with just one parent rose from 9.1% in 1960 to 20.7% in 2012. Currently, 55.1% of all black children, 31.1% of all Hispanic children, and 20.7% of all white children are living in single-parent homes.

White children born in the 1950-1954 period spent only 8% of their childhood with just one parent; black children spent 22%. Of those born in 1980, by one estimate, white children can be expected to spend 31% of their childhood years with one parent, and black children 59%.

You’ve heard about the crisis of fatherlessness and the negative consequences for children and for our society. Even if you are an involved dad, until we are successful, your children and grandchildren will be growing up in a culture of absent fathers and unfathered children. They will be affected!

You can be a part of the solution!

Why say NO to attorneys in the Legislature?

"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home." (Tecumseh).
