Tony Bellizzi In 2024

Politics 2.0
Government 2.0
America 2.0

Tony is offering himself as a candidate for the office of President of the United States in 2024 out of a desire to serve, and if the American people support him, to spearhead with their involvement, the transformation of our government and society.

Tony Bellizzi is offering the American people a bold, fresh alternative to the self-serving political parties and their candidates.

The Civilization of Love movement and this campaign are not about merely sending a message, or electing one person. This is a movement of the people to do what has to be done to turn our culture around. This grassroots movement knows that the only way to truly make America a nation we all can be happy and proud to live in, is love.

Our individual and collective commitment to faith and love alone will lead our country to flourish in security, prosperity, and peace.

America has been a beacon of light as the world’s first and greatest democracy.

Now we will restore our democracy, and we will lead the way forward for humanity as the first Civilization of Love society in human history.

Advocate For Youth

Tony has worked with youth and families for 50 years as a mentor, youth minister, retreat director, and prison minister. His deep passion is to heal and energize souls, to awaken faith in God, and empower others to change their lives with love. Tony has been a spiritual godfather to countless young souls through the spiritual programs and youth faith communities he has led. He has mobilized youth to share themselves through many life-changing service projects in their own communities, as well as foreign mission trips, and with those struggling with homelessness in NYC.

Activist

Tony is the founder and director of Hope for the Children Foundation Inc. a non profit NGO that empowers youth and families in the United States and internationally to lift themselves out of poverty through education and opportunity.
The HFC mission is primarily to serve those most in need. Tony sees service, outside of disaster relief, as offering a hand up, not a hand out through education, micro loans and other opportunities. Tony is always striving to affect and build communities with a culture of respect for diversity of God’s children.

Mission

The Civilization of Love movement
Tony is now leading a historic new movement calling Americans to reject the culture of fear, anger, hate, greed and division; and to embrace the priority of love in our individual and collective lives. The Civilization of Love movement offers Americans the opportunity to take their society and government back, by infusing selfless love, rather than attacking anyone else.
We define love not as sentimental emotion, but action; caring about and working for each others
growth and wellbeing.

It's time to take the big leap

Aug 2,2023 | Erin LaBelle

 

According to Tony Bellizzi, “It’s time to take the big leap. People are realizing the answer for the future is not cerebral. It’s time to transform the political system because it’s the way we manage our collective life.”

“We’ve tried the law of the jungle, an age of reason, an information age. It’s time to build a Civilization of Love.” - Tony Bellizzi

Noteworthy Quotes

Some inspirational words to live by.

“Don’t follow where the path may lead.

Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, abolitionist, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century.

“If not love
then what?
If not for love
then why?
If not with love
then how?
If not now
then when?
If not us
then who?”

Tony Bellizzi

U.S. Presidential candidate

“Every public servant who fails to do things that are moral, legal and ethical must be held accountable, otherwise we lead the country down a path that is no longer the beacon the world hopes for.”

Adm. William McRaven

Retired United States Navy four-star admiral who served as the ninth commander of the United States Special Operations Command from August 8, 2011 to August 28, 2014. From 2015 to 2018, he was the chancellor of The University of Texas System.

Together We can Make Something Great

Neither party has served us as their partisan bickering and backbiting paralyzes our government. They have not presented real solutions or exhibited the ability to unite us.

The Civilization of Love is simply the application of the Golden Rule: You don’t do to someone else what you wouldn’t want them to do to you; and you give to others what you would like to receive yourself.

339,996,563

Approximate number of people living in the U.S.

37,900,000

Approximate number of U.S. citizens living in poverty.

16,000,000

Sixteen million homes currently sit vacant across the U.S. In every state across the country, many homes remain empty while hundreds of thousands of Americans face homelessness.

When we stop asking “What if?” civilizations die. My movement and campaign is based on the biggest “what if?” in human history: what if we attempted to live our collective lives according to the highest principle we know to strive to live for in our personal lives: love; transcendence of self for the good of another. We are applying on a level never attempted before, the principle and practice of love, central to every true religion and spiritual practice.
