IMAGINE if we all joined forces and put our talents and energies together. IMAGINE what we can accomplish collectively? I IMAGINE it every day. All for one and one for all. Not one of us should fall not one, not one! The Majority United! The time is now! Yes – this is our vision – it has never been done on this scale – 52% - but we can do it.
