The time has now finally arrived to abolish the present system of "Life Voting Members" and to give all dues paying members of the USCF the right to vote. Democracy works best. The great masses of chess players will no longer tolerate the present situation where the handful of chess politicos who control US Chess engage in endless internal power struggles, while the great masses of players are allowed no vote and must watch helplessly.
FIDE, the World Chess Federation, has fallen into the hands of dictator and has become moribund. The World Chess Championship system for both men and women has been effectively abolished. There is nothing to take its place. The USCF must take a leading role in the formation of a new world chess body.
Chess Players of the World Unite. You have nothing to lose at all.
