Education, Justice, and Freedom for All
As We Take Money and Parties out of Politics
Today's political environment is toxic. It is dominated by money and political parties that care nothing for the citizens. Unfortunately, the problem is just as bad here in Utah as elsewhere. Please vote against toxic politics and for independent candidates who will truly represent you.
My name is Tom Tomeny, and I am asking for your vote for Governor of Utah in 2024.
As an independent candidate, I am beholden to no political party or special interest money. These are the two most corrupting influence in our world today.
What is with the White Robe?
The White Robe is symbolic of the insanity that we live with today. It is time to escape the insane institutions that are controlling our lives, and let freedom be . The White Robe is also from scripture, as Jesus Himself is usually depicted as wearing a white robe. I am no Jesus, but we need some radical re-imagining of government , in the tradition as taught by Jesus and brought to life by our Founding Fathers.
Will others join you in wearing a White Robe?
That is my hope, and the principal way I plan to campaign with no money and no political party to back me. The White Robe is a way that all who wear it can publicly say, "it's time for change". It may not happen in one election cycle, as this may take more time than that. A limited number of free White Robes are available soon, please email me to get one of those.
How do we get money and parties out of politics?
By refusing to vote for those who spend money on media and who are nominated by political parties! They only do so because it has worked, so far. Now that we have the Internet, voters can learn all they need to know to make informed decisions by going to candidate sites like this one.
You want us to put the future of our state into the hands of someone who has no political or government experience?
I do, and am convinced you should! Consider the alternatives. My opponents are professional politicians, while they have honed their skills at looking and sounding good, I have been doing good, even to the point of "marching into hell for the heavenly cause". Read my testimony of that at tomtomeny.com.
The state is a huge bureucracy, how can you manage it?
As in all things, by the Spirit of God. We are spiritual beings living, for this moment, a physical and temporal life. The people working in our government are just as much children of God as any of us. They, as all of us, can live higher and better lives, and use their gifts and talents in progressively better ways. I have a lot of experience doing a lot of different things, including founding two very succesful Christian schools in Texas. Read my resume here.
What are your sensible policies that we can expect if you are elected Governor of Utah? There are three areas I intend to focus on, all areas where government is already involved in a large way:
Education- Bringing our education systems into the 21st century, by teaching learners how to learn independently.
Justice- Making our criminal justice system restorative rather than punitive, providing a path of progress for all.
Freedom- Lowering the burden of government on all of us, allowing people to progress to governing themselves.
I look may look like I've escaped from a mental instituton because I have escaped from a mental institution and would like to show all how to do it as well. When we live in our current political morass, we are in a mental institution, with crazy politics all around us. The solution is not to point fingers at one another but point up, to God and His Way of Love for one another. I hope and pray that you will also wear a white robe to show the world that you have also escaped the insanity.
Why did I get a card that says Free College for All? Are you a proponent of bigger government, with more freebies to buy off voters?
Quite the contrary, my Free College for All is a prayer request, to encourage large faith institutions to "replace the state" in order to make our government smaller. Faith instutions can provide care for those in need, voluntarily, at far less cost and with far more freedom than government programs.
Why and how is Love the Way?
Love is the one thing we can all agree on. It is the foundation of all progress, it is the Way of God, the Way of Jesus for those who believe in Him. Love is patient, love is kind, love seeks the best in all. It is the opposite of traditional, domineering, punitive goverment. Love comes naturally to all as they age and learn that no other Way actually works. Even as each of us grows up to be a person of Love, our society will grow up to be one of Love. We are on the threshold of technological advances that will free all of us from most manual labor, our new labor will be to love one another.
How do we learn more of this White Robe Revolution?
This is an organic web site, as I add and edit it and the related sites almost daily, learning as I go. Visit often, and click through the hyperlinks embedded in the text. This site is connected via those links to a myriad of ideas, some that may be worth implementing, others that are simply food for thought. If you have a group and would like to get to know me in person, call or email to arrange that. At this time, this campaign is mostly just me, and God.
