I. This is up to you
For reasons indicated in my entry "You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore", during my campaign in the 6th Congressional district from February to June, I was entirely alone, and I was ignored for those four months because I was alone. I (this) will continue to be ignored unless others express themselves in various ways. Active Republicans and active Democrats are going to be slow to do that. A way must be found to get more "independent" thinking people to go first in expressing themselves. Then others may follow suit. It is entirely in your hands and what you do.
II. The case I have been trying to make, which has been ignored
If you are going to take action, you should want to know what you are taking action about.
In briefest form, my case is that Congress and government have failed the American people because of the influence of money in politics. A lot of this campaign website attempts to lay that case out. I think, however, rather than trying to sift through this campaign website, you should watch this 18 minute video of Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig and/or read his short book Lesterland: The Corruption of Congress And How To End It.
III. Back up for Manifesto assertions
If you are going to take action based on the assertions made in the Manifesto, here is some back up for you.
Regarding Senators Shelby and Session and Representative Bachus, see (i) Open letter to Alabama delegation in Washington; (ii) Response of Senator Shelby to open letter; (iii) Second open letter to the Alabama delegation in Washington; and (iv) Representative Bachus' response.
Regarding the other candidates and the political commentators, see (i) Answer the questions, 6th district candidates; (ii) Would Gary Palmer please comment?; (iii) Framing the question; (iv) Reviewing the bidding with one week to go: and (v) Question for Paul DeMarco and Gary Palmer.
IV. Things you can do
I repeat. I was by myself for four months and I was ignored for four months. If I continue on about this by myself, I (this) will continue to be ignored.
Only if you express yourself is there a chance that this will not continue to be ignored, and the more of you who express yourselves, the better the chance of that.
Here are things you can do to express yourself:
1. Email Paul DeMarco at email@example.com and Gary Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org, and say something like:
I am a voter in the 6th Congressional district. My attention has been called to this Manifesto for AL 6th Congressional district voters. I would be interested in hearing your response to that Manifesto. Thank you. Sincerely

3. Email your friends and others saying something like:

4. Tweet your friends and others saying something like:
