ABOUT STEVEN MACHAT

My name is Steven Machat. I am running as the Independent candidate for the Florida U.S. Senate seat. I am motivated with the belief that I am the best candidate to protect the people of Florida with a priority for their health, education, equality and security. This I will do to the best of my ability.

I run as an Independent, as I represent the people of Florida, not the national Republican or Democratic parties. My sole motivation will be what’s best for the people.

This I promise.

“My goal is to create as Thomas Jefferson recommended, a government in tune with the living as opposed to the departed. 

Therefore, this generation needs a 21st Century Bill of Rights to modify and alter our current Constitution of 1789.”

-Steven Machat

The United States is the only nation in the world created by the people, for the people and of the people. The Declaration of Independence promised to put people before property. The United States Constitution of 1789 put property before people, but did provide a way to amend the Constitution for each new generation. The amendments we have to date are all political. I run to reintroduce the mantra of our Declaration of Independence. That mantra promised we would be a land of equality where everyone can pursue happiness. In line with Thomas Jefferson, I hereby propose a Second Bill of Rights that will provide the health, welfare and safety for all 21st century Americans.

PALM BEACH COUNTY (CBS12) — Music has the power to break down barriers, transcend emotions and send a strong message. A rock ‘n roll mogul is using it as his platform for politics. Attorney Steven Machat says he’s tuned in and ready to take the stage. “I have a song.  My song is unity, and we’re sitting here with two political parties that believe that the other party are horrible people and that’s wrong,” said Machat. Machat, who’s also a music producer, is running as an independent candidate for the U.S. Senate in Florida. You may not recognize Machat outright, but you know his work. Some of his legal and music clients include Ozzy Osbourne and Phil Collins. Machat sees an America that’s ready for a comeback hit.

21st Century Bill of Rights

Steven Machat: The Independent Choice for the United States Senate

Laws of Equality
Create an understanding where all laws will be equally applied to everyone, no matter who you are or your social status. This is non-negotiable in all three branches of the Government.

We must alleviate the unfair banking interest on all current school loans.
In addition, we need to create a mechanism where in exchange for service to our government, American citizens can attend college without paying for tuition.
K-12 schools need a curriculum, not Common Core, for our students that teaches the Humanities of Mankind so morals, ethics and sense of community becomes ingrained in our future. Lack of a well-rounded, continued education is a consequence and cause of inequality.

Economic Growth and Development
Transact business in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies of business or individuals at home or abroad. If it’s too big to fail, it’s too big be owned by the few.

Health Care for All Americans!

Every American should have the equal right to a healthy life – not one based on the ability to pay. Let’s build on the Affordable Care Act with a single pay health care system and continue to support Medicare and Medicaid.

Domestic:

Our Second Amendment was written and published in 1790. A gun then is not a gun now. I support background checks and a waiting period for gun purchases, and a federal ban on assault weapons. I am vehemently opposed to the sale of any firearm online or to anyone who is or has been under suspicion of terrorist activities. Our police must enforce laws equally applicable to all.

International:

We must protect our borders. This requires leaders who understand the cause of human conflict that creates dissension that results in the breach of universal laws of peace and harmony. We need to mind our own nation’s’ business. The whole world does not need to be like us, nor do they.

Terrorism:

The source of terrorism is hate. Until we can effectively stop the education and infiltration of the belief that no life is worth living, we will lose this battle. We must uncover and punish those that finance these thoughts that manifest into privatized wars of hatred wherever and whoever they are. This category of people is as responsible as the terrorists themselves.

Debt Free America
Nationalize our federal reserve (central bank) so it works for the best interest of our country as a community, not personal third-party pocket books. Reenact the Glass-Steagall protection that prevents other commercial banks from gambling our money away.

The right to a useful and remunerative job with a living wage. If business doesn’t support it, community can.

Environmental Justice for Florida

Stop Big Sugar from our waterways. Protect the Everglades. Stop fracking from entering this fertile state. Stop Monsanto’s intrusion into the seeds Mother Earth created for us.

War on Drugs
We have immigrants from Mexico and Central America, including children traveling alone, that are the first of countless victims of the narco-terrorist drug wars.
U.S. drug enforcement has fallen behind in the battle and instead has created a black market for the supply and demand of illegal narcotics. Death, whether through violence or abuse, is an epidemic with no end in sight.

Steven Machat: The Independent Choice for the United States Senate

Legalization of Marijuana
I believe that this must be instantly implemented. Each state and/or county should be responsible for their own laws, just as they are with liquor and tobacco.
Our Federal mandate must be to educate and rehabilitate – not incarcerate.
