After decades of failing to reach his fellow conservatives, it was time for Will Hartline to try something radical enough to get noticed. He decided to “help” his political adversaries advance their cause, but really only as a trap to expose their deceptive tactics to the bright light of day. The “bait” he used for his Political Year Strategy was brilliantly simple — he merely called for Congress to change Election Day to February 29th. Changing the date for elections to the only date that showed up once roughly every four calendar years, would create a new “Political Year” that could be used for federal elections and the length of elected federal terms. The “Political Year” would be defined as the interval of time until the date designated [for elections] again showed up on the calendar. Suddenly, it would appear that American Presidents who serve a four-year term could now serve four “Political Years” (four leap years — 16 calendar years), while Representatives serving two [political] years would serve eight calendar years and Senators who serve six [political] years, 24 calendar years. But, as his political adversaries sought implement his strategy — so they could extend their political terms four-fold — they wouldn’t notice that were simultaneously building Will the name recognition and political platform he had never been able to build himself. And, once he found his new political voice, he would spring his trap, baited with the promise of extended political terms. In the process of springing his trap, he would also expose the fallacy underlying 200 years of U.S. Supreme Court’s “reinterpreting” other words found in the Constitution, differently, to increase federal powers. Read Trapped by Political Desire: The Treatise and learn how to throw off two centuries of federal oppression that is reliant upon redefined words and inherent federal discretion, so we may finally restore our American Republic, Once and For All and Happily-Ever-After.

Trapped by Political Desire: The Treatise tells the story of a man who comes up with his Political Year Strategy to extend the President's term four-fold (and legislative terms of U.S. Representatives and U.S. Senators), simply by choosing February 29th as the date for federal elections (within the enumerated power of Congress to pick the election date [Art. I:4:1 and Art. II:1:4]). After the date of the federal election is changed to February 29th, a new “Political Year” is created, to mean the length of time until the date used for federal elections again shows up on the calendar. The Political Year may then be used to determine the time for Presidential and legislative terms, and the frequency of federal elections. After choosing February 29th as the date of elections, then the passage of four political years (four leap years/16 calendar years) means the next Presidential election, after the 2020 election, is February 29th, 2036. The next election for U.S. Representatives in February 29th, 2028 and U.S. Senators elected in 2020 face election again on February 29th, 2044.
