Ours is not a monarchy, but we entrust our President with immense power. Each piece of our Federalist Puzzle acts independently of the others, yet they are at their BEST when they act in-concert. We despise socialism, decry anything that even smells like it, but we know… charity has always been our strongest suit.
The Federal Government of the United States has entrusted to us more than TWO TRILLION DOLLARS, to mothball our economy and support each other as we fight this battle. The Government must pick some winners as a matter of National Security, but the rest is up to us.
Today we must choose our destiny.
We must decide what we will create for our children. Will we act based on emotion, blindly running away from danger? Or will we act with KNOWLEDGE, and turn our eyes toward the future. We must work to lay out a solid foundation… and ensure this can NEVER happen again.
The sickness has always been there… it’s just taken a PANDEMIC for us to fully SEE it.
Months of inaction… months of misinformation. Months of insider trading and months of delusion… Time lost. Opportunities now GONE… and this is only the FIRST WEEK of a 30 day shutdown in Kansas City.
… since January 24th.
They’ve asked us to give up so much. Our progress… our future… our security… and they repay us by focusing on ‘Small Businesses’ as they call them: The Airline Industry, The Cruise Ship Industry, and the Real Estate Industry… BOY! That sounds like one hell of a payday for anyone named TRUMP… and every Senator who is subservient to him.
To the Congregations of Faith across this Great Nation-
Your faith is needed in this hour! Stay home and PRAY… but also, take ACTION if you can. DONATE to your local food pantry. GIVE all that you can if you have that ability, because SO many of us will now be in need.
Science and knowledge are the gifts we have been given, so that we might begin to understand… and we are to use these gifts as best as we are able, given the limited sight with which we were born. IN UNION, we’ve pledged our fates and fortunes! We must shepherd the weak in this hour, as we are ALL but men… and inaction will surely cost us more lives.
Our dependence on technology and our need for a clean and reliable energy source to power it, will only GROW because of this experience. My endocrinologist recently told me that insulin pumps in the next five years will be as reliable and accurate as my pancreas used to be. So much so that insurance companies will start requiring them in order to limit the complications caused by diabetes.
And now, we’ll become more dependent on teleconferencing to diagnose sickness, to educate our children, to communicate with loved ones trapped in another city, or summon first responders. All dependent on electricity and a stable high-speed internet connection. If you don’t have either one of those, you are now unable to participate in our society.
Will we allow this to become another tool of oppression… another discriminating factor used to keep others out? Or will we ensure it is a necessity, a vital utility that must be accessible to ALL Americans? A RIGHT, protected and secured by our United States Government.
To be clear… we must be CLEAR! We must define exactly what we want our future to BE. The Top-Down economic policies of the last 107 years have brought us to this point. The stability envisioned by creating our Federal Reserve is now being artificially manipulated by individuals who only want to gain INSIGHT… to have KNOWLEDGE of the future that others do not.
So that they might profit off of the misfortune of others.
Two trillion dollars, unchecked and mismanaged, will only further that agenda if we do nothing about it.
In the blink of an eye, roughly ONE THIRD of our nation is now unemployed. Restaurants, bars, fast food… every commercial kitchen across the country has now been hollowed out, out of necessity. To prevent unnecessary loss of life.
With adequate foresight into the current situation, we could have PREPARED ourselves for this and made the transition seamlessly. Instead, we’ve upended families and taken them away from their HOMES. A decade of hard work spent recovering from the LAST recession, slowly fading away… it must NOT be so.
Take advantage of every lifeline the Congress is making available to us in this hour, and HOLD THE LINE. If your home loan is backed by the Federal Government, you cannot be evicted… HOLD THE LINE. Money is coming, though it’s not as much as they will be giving to Boeing… take it, and do all that you can, and HOLD THE LINE.
Defeat the virus, and then defeat FEAR and DIVISION. Our Nation’s economy is STRONG when the people have money to SPEND… and when people have money to spend, they can take care of the people they LOVE.
It is not the job of our Government to take care of the people, it’s the job of our Government to make sure everyone has an EQUAL OPPORTUNITY to take care of themselves.
In this hour, it is our DUTY to protect and defend our Constitution from those who seek to kick us while we’re down, as we fight for our lives… as our attention is turned somewhere else.
No, it’s NOT the first time. BULLIES are as they’ve always been. It’s nothing new. We know who they are… and we know how to defeat them.
STAND UP and SPEAK OUT!
When you STAND UP and defend the rights of others… you protect those rights for yourself.
HOLD THE LINE until NOVEMBER!
