Do you want to ditch your side hustles and only have a singular hustle to survive?

Would you like to see a new way of living where your worth isn’t based on efficiency but on your humanity?

Are you tired of those in power telling you that you need to do X, Y, and Z to make a living while they don’t even have to do A to get paid hefty sums?

We are.

That’s why we’ve formed a new political party: The One-Taskers.

You may be asking, “Why are you called The One-Taskers? What does that even mean?”

In a world where everything is at your fingertips, we’re often made to feel like we have to be doing everything at once. Our attention is split in so many ways—both at work and at home—that it’s hard to give one task or one person our undivided attention. Our lives and the world at-large can seem impossible to manage.

The One-Taskers offer another option. More than a party, The One-Taskers are a movement to change our way of life. Rather than multitasking our way from disaster to disaster and temporarily patching the surface issues, we believe in choosing one issue and digging down deep until we find and properly address the root cause.

Now, you’re probably thinking, “But the world has more than one issue happening at once. Literally everything is on fire. Don’t you need to multitask?”

To that we say, “You’re right, the world is a complete and utter dumpster fire. But has multitasking gotten us anywhere?” For decades, our leaders have stumped on the promises to fix a plethora of issues, but so far, their success rate is worse than the Carolina Panthers. The only thing they’ve made progress in is continually lowering the bar in what we’ve come to deem as acceptable.

We won’t promise you we can fix everything, but we will try to fix one thing, and once we do, we will fix another. No mudslinging, no maligning.

Just doing the work, day in and day out, because that’s what you deserve.

Do any of your leaders live up to that pledge? Do you see them actually making progress on any of their many irons they have in the fire “for you?”

We didn’t think so.

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, then we are all losing our minds. Does it hurt to try something new?


This November, cast your vote for The One-Taskers (or write in our candidate in every state but Louisiana, New Hampshire, and Arizona). After all, do we really have anything else to lose?
