I learned last night that I shouldn’t raise funds until I actually have a nonprofit already in place. That sucks because the time is ripe to move on this…
A little research found several other options, finding a nonprofit to partner with, or finding a fiscal sponsor. I’ll look into these.
Most move quickly!
Hmmm. New wild thought. If this nonprofit thing is too cumbersome, maybe we could fund in another way…
Before election day, one post on Facebook claimed falsely that Pope Francis endorsed Donald Trump. It was accessed almost one million times. Many more false stories were posted and spread. Facebook is now doing some heavy soul-searching, as they should.
This is the kind of serious reflection that we as citizens — and our institutions — should be doing more broadly and more routinely.

Today is Friday, Veteran’s Day, three days after the election that saw Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton (and some folks from the Libertarian and Green Parties). The election result was a major surprise to almost everyone because somehow almost all of the polling was wrong, even the candidate’s private polling.
I admit, I didn’t like the result. Donald Trump seems unprepared, unrelentingly hateful, and generally incompetent. Still, maybe he’ll surprise me and do some good things while avoiding doing things that are really dangerous and harmful.
This is my first post for Make Truth Great Again, and so I thought I should give you a behind-the-scenes look at how things got started. I have to admit, the last three days have been so frenzied and so emotionally crazy, that I’m a bit fuzzy about what transpired. Here’s what I remember…
Instigated by Will Thalheimer, a regular American citizen, because of his belief that America's political dialogue is dangerously dysfunctional, especially in being intentionally manipulated with misinformation to prompt voters to misinterpret the factors utilized in their own decision-making.
If our inaugural campaign is successful, and we raise enough money to fund a nonprofit, our future headquarters will be located somewhere near Boston.
And, if we grow, we'll look to have offices in Washington, DC... to keep a close eye on those who might hope to bend the truth...
So you can do your due-diligence, the instigator of Make Truth Great Again is Will Thalheimer, and you can learn about him through his websites and social media links:
