Join for the Discussion... Stay for the Revolution.

Dear Prospective Member,

Here at the Pentanomic Institute, our mission is to launch the Pentanomic Revolution.

That means three things:

  • 1)

    Fixing our dysfunctional government;

  • 2)

    Healing our political divide;

  • 3)

    Inspiring the world to follow in our footsteps.

We will accomplish this mission by exploring and promoting Pentanomics, the unified theory of government.


In politics, history-making revolutions happen when the general public unites behind a simple and powerful message.

Consider, for example, how many revolutions have happened because of simple ideas like FREEDOM! or JUSTICE!. Consider how many political movements demand PROSPERITY!, PROGRESS!, PEACE! or SUSTAINABILITY!

And then consider how amazing it would be to be a part of a movement that unites all of these rallying cries together—and gets them right.

That’s the power of the Pentanomics. As a founding member, you get to play an unusually important role.

I look forward to learning along side you in the members' only area.

— Rick Raddatz Founder & Executive Director The Pentanomic Institute

    This construct is an inspiring political platform that shows great promise. For the longest time, We the People have needed a way to come together, for the common good of ALL, within a framework where all political views are honored and respected. Until now... that seemed impossible! I'm extremely excited about the potential for Real Change afforded by what this brings to ALL of America's citizens. It's a sea change whose time has come!
  • PhilipSunny Isles Beach, FloridaCo/Founder-AchievementRadio.comRepublican
    Very well done Rick! As a political conservative, I am disheartened by the divisive rhetoric tearing at our great Nation. This solution certainly presents a possibility to reverse the destructive course we are on. I look forward to and welcome additional information which will empower me to educate others!
  • ValaryEncinitas, CANurseIndependent
    The vision behind the concept models presented here is one I can comfortably endorse. The concept models are beautiful in their simplicity and inspired in their balance. If done right, this movement has the potential to allow the people to reclaim the values government has hijacked from us.
  • Ed SepulvedaPico Rivera, CARetired engineer3rd-Party
    The simplicity of the concept is too good to be true. With everyone's cooperation, it can stop the madness between the Democrats and the Republicans that is tearing our nation apart.
  • PhilGrand Junction, COartistLibertarian
    Finally here is something to really get excited about! Instead of the constant bickering back and forth of the political parties and the media support of one or the other, here is a solution where everyone works together for every political view. Capitalism and social justice come together to benefit self sufficient and needy alike. Everyone can be happy with the result.
  • DeborahPhoenix, AZPublisherProgressive
    It's time to find a way to listen to each other and celebrate our patriotism, no matter what our political views are (or have been). I am a proud American first and foremost. This solution supports that!
  • Leon TarrantGalena, KSSupport TechnicianDemocrat
    Finally! Someone came up with an inclusive way to look at the realities of politics and society. In Revolutionary times, Ben Franklin said, "We must all hang together or most assuredly we will all hang separately." We may have come back to that situation, and this looks like a possible resolution to our quandry.
  • Harry HendricksonAirvilleRetired correctional officerRepublican
    We need to have a patriotic bond that stiches us together as caring and responsible Americans. Our fore fathers sacrificed and died for our American way of life. if we want to sustain our freedoms and democracy then we need to help one another to bring America to the top of the list once again and this Revolution looks like our remedy. Political views mean nothing if our country looses it's basic constitutional values and tenents. God Bless America.
  • SusanAtlanta GAenergyparenting.comIndependent
    I believe it's true that all political viewpoints have more in common than opposed - it's HOW we talk about what we want that creates such HUGE ILLUSIONS of separate interests. Thank you, Rick, for being willing to lead in this area despite the landmines, and for being willing to put effort into using language we can all hear instead of resist. I've often dreamed of BOB - best of both parties - but there are more than two, and I believe more than every before, we are ready to meet in the middle and transcend differences for the common good.
  • MarkSt. Robert, MissouriSoldier3rd-Party
    This solution is a concept and party change that I fully support. This is THE way to demonstrate for us and our future generations what right looks like!
  • TheresaDallas, TexasSelf-employeed on-line salesProgressive
    Balance and consideration of all people! The political bickering isn't working. Also, I like the fact that American citizens can be involved and take part in change this country really needs because Washington "ain't getting it done"!
  • Phyllis HarlowPalmdale, CA MerchandiserDemocrat
    This makes sense. I really believe we have gotten away from our true values of loving our neighbors with all the greed and me-ism in this country, especially in the government where we elect these politicians to represent our voice in Washington and they get swayed by all the special interest groups leaving us high and dry. We really need to come together in this country and help one another every day and not just when there is a tragedy like 9-11. I like what Rick has to say and I support it. I hope we can make it happen.
  • Patti Dallas, TXentrepreneurRepublican
    This is the first time I've felt hope that Americans might stop talking past each other, embrace the heart of where we agree, and do something that makes sense.
  • MonicaSeattle, WaInformation and Media ManagerIndependent
    Real possibilities to move all our political sides forward together for a greater future for all. No one group owns the word "patriotic." Anyone that cares about our country’s past, present and future gets to claim this word. I now have hope for our country’s future and our country’s ability to be a positive, collaborative, constructive energy for Good in the world.
  • MelCarson City, NVBiz Owner3rd-Party
    My gut response to this can be described in one word: RESPONSIBILITY. That's what Rick is introducing/demanding with this approach. Transparency is the precurser and guarantor of responsibility. But, we can no longer just talk about it. We're on the slippery slope to destruction. Goofy is strapped to his skis and gaining speed down that mountain ... we must do something before he turns into that huge snowball and crashes! Transparency. Cap and prioritize. What a concept! Why do I like it? Responsibility. Capitalism and Social Justice. We must maintain the balance of powers, the natural give and take, without favoring one side over the other. Transparency and Responsibility. Go for it Rick!
  • MartinCarson City, NVbusinessmanLibertarian
    Representative democracy has long outlived its usefulness. It is time for direct democracy and professional management to take over from the "best congress money can buy" institutions. This is a reasonable middle ground that might allow us to transition from one to the other without a full civil war we might otherwise soon get into.
  • KeithNaperville, IL entrepreneurProgressive
    There actually is a simple solution to a solid political view. Heart, mind, and commerce rolled into one small government plan. Very inspiring! Now we need a plan for campaign financing and term limits to truly turn our government back into 'by and for the people'! Politics should not be a career....
  • Juleen StenzelRancho Cordova, CADemocrat
    I support it! I believe this system can bring collaboration into making decisions that will better serve all the citizens of this country.
  • PaulMagnolia, TXretired (computer technology)Republican
    Transparency, minimization of influence of special interests and a narrowing of the gap that separates the left and right are the strengths I see in this plan
  • KimReno, NVPublisherIndependent
    I was raised a Republican, but have become so disenchanted and even embarrassed by the greed and ego displayed by the Republican party, I was headed to the Democratic side which focuses on helping people. What I want most is Common Sense and Business Sense in govt. I would vote for a business leader any day over a political leader. This country needs someone who can run the gov't like a business... focused on results... that can be responsible for reaching a positive bottom line... that treats it's citizens like customers - with dignity and respect. Maybe it will even gain traction as a third political party - one everyone can buy into, and we will enter a new era of collaboration where we support each other and everyone wins, instead of competition where we destroy each other, very few win, and those who do, do so at the expense of everyone else. I support the idea of competition as Rick intends it, where it is an exercise in bringing the best out in people and organizations... where people compete to be the best and offer the most value to others. I don't support the idea of competition in which there are winners and losers, and operates on the theory of scarcity. I am sooo happy to see the emergence of this platform. It is needed more now than ever before.
    A complex problem solved with profound understanding; with an understandable answer and concept that can be clearly conveyed in less than 20 minutes to a large part of the world.
  • Hurst PeacockAuburn/AlabamaDoctor of ChiropracticProgressive
    This is the idea that I've been hoping for. If we continue to play the "my side is better than your side" game, we are finished as a country. W+W Revolution gives us a way to work together without compromising ideals.
  • GilRiverdale NYConsultantLibertarian
    It's logical. It simply makes sense. Plus, it holds government accountable for their spending.
  • David KasmierCleveland, OhioBusiness/Marketing ConsultantDemocrat
    This is an incredible program....One that I highly recommend everyone get involved in.... there would be no more of that polarizing politics that we have all come to hate….it has something for everyone….Finally something that makes sense for the world that we live in today.
  • John HillLebanon, TNRealtorRepublican
    Brilliant! You have really picked up on the enormous need of the right and left learning to work together again towards making our country great and what the founders intended (for the most part).
  • NancyCarmen, IdahoIntuitive Counselor & Healer/ Writer/ HomemakerIndependent
    Time for us to come together, instead of continuing to argue about who is "right". Bottom line, we do share core beliefs and have core needs and this is a perfect way for us to end the separation. Capping spending and having priorities is how a person would budget their own money effectively and so I see no reason why it wouldn't work in government also. Thank You for all you are doing to help all of us!
  • geoff guirk east hanover njself employed Libertarian
    simply amazing....the best synergistic make sense approach to run the country encompassing all views,working together to the common goal
  • Dr. Wilfredo P. ResosoPhilippinesVeterinarianProgressive
    This is the best way to solved conflict. Everybody knows that when we argue we separate as friends not enemies for the essence of democracy is to ventilate issues and both sides will understand that a sound discussions will benefit both sides and arrived to a best solutions driven by a unified atmosphere/solutions.
  • ChristinaSarasota, FLLife, Health, Confidence & Addiction CoachDemocrat
    Wow. An idea who's time has come. I'm fascinated at how you tied everything together so powerfully. It is a concept that, if we can get enough people to understand and embrace, can truly save this Country!
  • MorganConnecticutRetired RNRepublican
    Finally someone is talking about the solution and not the problem.
  • CorySan Diego, CaliforniaBusiness OwnerIndependent
    Finally, taking a psychological/mathematical approach to politics. Using our heads instead of raw emotions. When government no longer serves the people, the people have a duty to change their government. It's time for the people to stand together so special interest will not be able to dictate policy any more.
  • ScottCASalesProgressive
    This is a sincere and thoughtful new approach to solving our biggest political ills. I'd encourage anyone to set aside blind ideological loyalty and cynicism for at a moment and consider this call to unity.
  • GregoryDetroit, MichiganNetwork Marketer & Travel AgentDemocrat
    Although I'm a Life Long Democrat, being indoctrinated long ago on my riding Daddy's shoulders at a Labor day parade in 1959, Then Senator Kennedy waved at me.... But what I'm saddened by is the rabid "Us vs Them" viciousness. What I love about Rick's philosophy is it's carefully thought out way for us to Help others have HOPE and OPPORTUNITY....a True way to WINBIG!
  • Patricia WeibelShawnee Mission, KSRetiredRepublican

    There is an Armenian saying which goes like this, "You can't get a strait line using a crooked ruler." So let's not keep trying over and over again. We need a new RULER.
  • Cheryl CartwrightMontreal, QCNon-profit Manager3rd-Party
    The world as it stands, is in a Lose/Lose position. A revitalization of the values that established America as the greatest, strongest and most diplomatic nation in the world is LONG overdue, and needed, for the USA to retake its role as the land of opportunity. I am Canadian, but where you go, we go and we too are losing many of the similar core values as the USA that made ours a country envied around the world.....We all need truth from our leadership to be able to reestablish a world where everyone can gain a true sense of justice and liberty for all! This may just be the answer that will lead the way!
  • CraigTexasProgressive
    The potential for this proposal to develop into an efficient, effective and bias-averse framework of government is truly remarkable.
  • David MasonSan DiegoLong Term Care insuranceDemocrat
    This has been my belief my whole life. I'm in.
  • Travis JenkinsKingwood, TxSelf EmployedRepublican
    Great message that seems to offer a fair and balanced approach to many of our biggest challenges that keep us from coming together as the great nation that we are. It's our innovation that has made us what we are time and time again, this may be just the innovation that we need to get back to greatness, once again!
  • TimSwanzey, NHEntrepreneurIndependent
    This is the first approach I've ever seen that provides a true opportunity to unite the voices of [virtually all] the people. It departs from the age-old "us-vs-them" mentality that has served to literally divide our country, and moves us from compromise (win-lose) to collaboration (win-win). As human beings, it is a truth that most of us have the same fundamental desires regarding life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Where we have seen great divide is in our ideas and philosophies on how to get there. This has created an environment where the "left" sees those on the "right" as being heartless, while those on the "right" see those on the "left" as idiots. As I currently understand it, the only people who could possibly oppose it are the political elitists who want power (and control) for the sake of power (and control).
  • Adrienneyorktown hts, nyChiropractorProgressive
    It promotes working together. Our current system promotes defeating the others even more than actual success. We CAN find a way for us all to win.
  • RobbyAsheville, NCBusiness OwnerDemocrat
    This is a must. You have my full support!
  • PaulGrand Junction/ COMortgage BankerRepublican
    Any thing that will reduce the size of government, I am for. Add the fact that you are looking at ways to improve government spending and you really have some thing.
  • Jens JerndalSupranationalPhilosopher, Author, Speaker, Independent
    Your ideas are brilliant. No doubt about it. In theory it could well be the salvation of our species and our planet.
  • DougSanta Ana, CAEntrepreneurLibertarian
    This idea has potential. The devil is always in the details. I joined and will follow this with great interest.

  • DonLevelland, TXTherapeutic Messenger3rd-Party

  • JohnGeorgiaBiz Management consultantLibertarian
    Rick is a modern day philosopher who understands how altruistic ideas can be arranged appeal to everyone. This construct will need a lot of help to gain traction. However, it can be "sold" like soap, cars, or fashion by clever people. This could work.
  • Terrt RuthHooks/TexasRetiredRepublican
    Ricks message reflects America as it was created, as it should be now and what we need for our republic to bring it back as the greatest nation in the world. It reflects charity with hard work. In God we Trust!

    Take this all the way Rick! We need you to lead us in the right direction..... we will follow!
  • ReyBostonReal Estate SalesIndependent
    That there seems to be a complete and sensible plan on how to bring us together to resolve where we are. I am of the opinion that democracy as we are practicing it does not work. To continue the present will eventually destory us.
  • FaithCleveland, OhioMarketing DirectorRepublican
    I am wary of the partisanship that is tearing this country apart at its seams. I need an oasis of just being able to talk to my fellow Americans of all opinions about how we can take our country forward without leaving people behind. I am over the stereotypes and passionate raw emotions that can no longer even engage with the other side. I am here for HOPE and SANITY and not hypersensitivity, propaganda, or unreasoned/untested opinions.
  • SandyFloridaBusiness owner3rd-Party

  • John Philadelphia PABusiness ConsultantIndependent
    Cap and Prioritize is a brilliant way to express the need to spend efficiently on only those things that matter most to our country! The model is a terrific framework to begin a different conversation about how our country can unite and prioritize what matters most to our freedom and sovereignty.

  • CoryAberdeen, SDAuthor, Speaker & Healthcare InnovatorRepublican
    Finally ... Some realization that it takes capitalism to fund charity. Rich people help fund the wheels for the needy. All I have ever wanted was "good" use of my tax dollars. If they are being used fairly and responsibly, then I have no problem paying them.

  • BruceFort Collins, COSmall business ownerIndependent
    No matter your party or political, philosophical leaning, we're all looking for better answers to what are government has presented. Our country is ailing - it's undeniable. Mainly, because we are overly married to views that are unable to answer the most important priorities. Tri-ism, at the very least, is worth a serious look for every single, engaged citizen from, the far left, the far right and everything in between. At best, it offers a gallant first step towards something better, viable and appealing to many us wanting a more responsive government.
  • JerryVista, CAFounder & CEO CompassionHappens IncLibertarian
    Rick Raddatz once again demonstrates his is brilliance! If you love America, Capitalism, Our Constitution and have a compassionate heart to see that no person on this planet is without food, shelter and a education you must watch this video… It's who I AM! Our Founding Fathers wanted co-operation in the highest sense of the word.. They truly believed that Man's freedom comes from GOD and the we have an opportunity to express and share that freedom with everyone. We have to love one another in spite of our differences in polical, religious, and Humaniterian views.

  • EugeneAnchorage, Alaskabusiness ownerRepublican
    The center used to be a muddy place until this idea. The center should pull the left and right wings with it, like the head on your shoulders and the heart in your chest pulls your arms and legs to move in a certain direction... there is no need for left and right arms to flay at each other. now we have a head and a heart that control them both.
  • TerrySeattle WAOnline entrepreneurIndependent
    This is a noble concept and strategy as far as it goes. However, special interests will still buy favor from greedy politicians to move their cause up the priority list. The influence of special interests, the extreme polarization of political parties with no middle ground and the use of personal demonizing all have to be reversed. To do so, politics has to be transformed back to the intent of the founding fathers: politicians who are *temporary* office holders - from all walks of life - motivated by the desire to improve our country, rather than "career politicians" - in office for decades - whose desire for control, power and longevity makes them vulnerable to polarization, greed and corruption.
  • DannyFranklin, TNEntrepreneurLibertarian
    I really hope something like this can actually happen. I will show my support, for what it is worth. Transparency is the key and no one in Washington seems to want that to happen right now. Lets change that and really see how bad the waste is, then I will gladly pay a fair share of the taxes we need.

    Here is a complex problem solved with profound understanding, wisdom, and vision. A clear presentation of the concept and answers -conveyed in an understandable way; in less than 20 minutes to a major part of the literate and understanding world. Tremendous ideas from your THINK TANK with well thought out steps for implementation. Sure beats everything out there proposed so far and indeed could allow for a peaceable transforming power helping to get it done.
  • JohnCleveland, OHSmall Business OwnerRepublican
    Not until we redefine the role of government in our lives will we begin to rebuild our country to be the greatest in the world again (sorry, communists & socialists...).

  • Steve ThomasRoscoe, ILself employed marketerDemocrat
    It is the common sense approach I have thought about for years. Everyone takes a little bit from each "plan", the top 10, if you will and formulate what's best for America. This process is that with "additives". If our federal leaders really do care about America, they will listen and if Americans really care they make them listen.

    It just makes sense!
  • Aila CharlestonRNIndependent
    As a registered Independent, I like this solution because it raises political discourse up from current destructive radical polarization to constructive intelligent debate.
  • Mae Las Vegas, NVInvestorRepublican
    This makes total sense because none of us can achieve a sustainable program that will please everyone without compromise and working synergistically to make our government work for all. I'm all for transparency because evil can only hide in the dark. If all men let their lights shine, there cannot be any darkness. I have only been interested in shining the light on the evil that permeates our government today. Very few people would choose evil if they know it to be evil. I'm all for Rick’s solution. I know that when you understand what it is and how it works, you will support this too!

    sounds great, but an uphill battle since transparency, would eliminate greed and corruption. both parties are so embedded in both, they will fight this tooth and nail. spread the word, because there are powers in numbers.
  • Jeffrey BetschWinnsboro, SCFairfield County Tea Party ChairmanRepublican
    Absolutely astounding idea.... I am still astonished by this concept
  • DustinAberdeen, SDSalesDemocrat
    I think that every American knows that our government is wasteful, but Democrats don't want to sacrifice government spending for fear of losing our ability to help people and Republicans don't want spend as much because it negatively affects their personal finances and never ends up as the money was originally intended. I totally believe that Rick’s ideas could work, but fear that they would also become corrupted in the hands of our leaders. If the prioritizing system works, this idea is absolutely brilliant.

    I think this makes a lot of sense on the surface. I have a lot of practical questions related to the reality of politics, power and how to get from here to there. The here being the stacked deck of the political system (especially after recent Supreme Court decisions) to the balanced economic, political and social system envisioned by Rick and his group.
  • Tamera TaborJacksonville FloridaArtistLibertarian
    It is clarity of thought. It is balance of heart and mind. It is based on the premise that we are one people, as opposed to being separate. It gives me hope, personally, that we might be able work together and return to balance.
  • Kathy IshikawaWatsonville, CaliforniaRealtorIndependent
    It is time to end the two party system that is constantly at loggerheads, not accomplishing anything, and just playing politics at our expense.
  • John J. WoodsSaint Louis, MOFinancial AdvisorIndependent
    It is time for people to demand transparency from their elected officials. This may be an effective start. This may be the creative, Internet-generation solutions we all know is somehow possible. This may diminish the power of special interest groups (left and right) that work again most of us. The current Dem/Reb system is broken and this may be a first step towards a fix.
  • Bruce Raymond WrightSimi Valley Ca.Author and business leaderLibertarian
    Getting a different result cannot be achieved with the traditional thinking that produces our current result. To transcend the present results, most of the current politicians and bureaucrats will have to be replaced with people capable of believing in and implementing new ideas and methods. Transcendent results require replacement of status quo.

    It's time for each American to realize many of the powers that be want different parties fighting with each other and playing the blame game. The reality is people from each party do have a lot of commonality and would be better served working together.

    The only problem is that the left (the politicians, not the public) only act like they want to help others. They only want bigger government to make everyone dependent on them. They are against the private sector and free markets.

    Rick, what I like the most about this is that it appeals to all sides of the political spectrum. What we need for the country to survive is TRANSPARENCY.
  • Joshua BarrettSouth Williamsport, PALibertarian
    This is simple, amazing, and what makes this stand out to me is that it could work more easily than some of the ideas than I or anyone else has had.
  • Dom CassoneNorthborough, MACoach/ConsultantRepublican
    Very interesting concept you have described here Rick. I am curious on how it will progress as it rolls out. I am not really a Republican, but rather a Conservative (that should be a choice as should Liberal). While am probably further to the right than most, I believe that most of the people in the country as a whole leads their lives somewhat to the right of center (regardless of their political affiliation), so if your great concept can get everyone to see common ground both in their lives and in their politics, it will be a great achievement. All the best!

    It's about time that a system has something for everyone! I'm a registered Demograt, however, I consider myself and Independent Conservative. Lets cut wasteful and foolish spending!

    We need some way to overcome the ideological split that cripples our government and divides our citizens. This is worth exploring to see if it can truly unite us without some external enemy to fight against.
  • Wallace GoodeyPearl River, LouisianaRetired MilitaryIndependent
    I left the Republican party for the same reason I left the Democratic party - because they left me. Transparency has been an illusion and the promise of fairness a bogus lure. This is a good start at reform, but as long as our legislators exempt themselves from the laws they make for all of us to live by, we remain their subjects. Again, this is a good start, but any real success will begin when our elected officials have to live under the laws they create and we live by.
  • Jalica MillerGufport, MSRetired MilitaryDemocrat
    It's a Revolution of Hope for Change. Something that stops the hammering of political interest groups to control government and government to create more sanctions against the true investors us!
  • Maurice EvansPayson, UTRetiredIndependent
    I support the concept because it is a way to bring out the best in all political philosophies, but most of all I love transparency. We have lived too long with government that cloaks almost everything it does and provides a dark hole in which to bury the greed and avirice of most politians.

    The message alone is well thought out. It does a great job of explaining why we are struggling and fighting ourselves when deep down each of us just wants fairness in our society. Also, we're sick of the divide and we're sick of representatives, corrupted by special interest, setting our priorities. It seems like a longshot that this could be realized. It doesn't seem like anyone is asking very much. Just tell everyone you know.
  • Helen KashiwaHoustonhomemaker/ educatorIndependent
    It reminds me of the way a parent would solve a conflict between two fighting children, the children being the left and the right. The talk seems to be an application of admirable Principles that we can all recognize and agree on. Maybe that's where philosophy and worldview will come into play, and I have the greatest hope and admiration for the effort. If possible, I plan to be a part of the solution as we all do have a role to play and to take our responsibility.
