The Price We Pay.

I realized something today… and I feel a bit ashamed for having not realized it sooner. This is no longer MY platform. Sure, I may be the one weaving the narrative, but the focus isn’t ME. My name might be in the URL, but the story isn’t mine… it’s OURS.

So what’s my deal, why must I be such an angry young man? ‘Head down! Nose to the grindstone!’ What do I have to worry about? Who am I to think that I could change all that? Besides, that’s THEIR problem… that’s THEIR neighborhood.

Just be grateful for what you GOT and MOVE ON.

Just pay it no mind. Stop watching all those news programs and start reading more science fiction novels. Maybe get a haircut and get a real job… advocacy work only seems to pay the bills when you’re associated with an established POLITICAL PARTY.

But you know… BOO HOO my problems.
As if my life was so hard. Like I’ve got it so tough.

This afternoon, my blood sugar levels SPIKED because I ate something my body disagreed with. Now I’ve gotta sit here on the couch for a couple of hours until I get it back under control…

As if my problems were somehow more important than anyone else’s.

But we know… that’s NOT how things work.
That’s not a sound plan for survival.

Maybe it’s too many HOURS watching The History Channel… back when they still aired shows that actually documented our HISTORY. Maybe it’s the STORIES shared by my grandparents… passed down through the generations, as a warning of what might come. SILENCE will not save you. In time, the MOB comes for us all.

The price of our INACTION will be paid in LIVES.

Is this how we want our Government to work… always behind the eight ball, unable to anticipate problems and form coherent plans?

Maybe I don’t understand POLITICS. Maybe I just don’t get it. I’ve never been a successful candidate… I guess I don’t know how all this stuff WORKS. We send them to Washington to get stuff DONE, yet nothing ever gets DONE. Immigration Reform. Voting Rights. Police Reform. Issue after issue. Decade after decade…

Why?

Because they can’t FUNDRAISE on a problem that’s already been SOLVED.

The Dobbs decision was leaked in May… TWO MONTHS before the final verdict was handed down. There was NO PLAN, other than VOTE BLUE no matter WHO.

And now the FUNDRAISING is through the ROOF. The polling is dramatic. The playing field has now SHIFTED, and the Democrats are looking competitive once again. Thanks to some shrewd political calculations, expert data analysis, and a whole lot of timely MESSAGE SHIFTING…

Imagine IF they had been focused on solving these problems from DAY ONE.

Imagine if the White House actually BELIEVED in these causes and wanted to see these problems resolved. TWO YEARS! And that’s being generous. These issues have been front and center since 2016. They knew before they entered the White House that these problems exist, and now they’ll only continue to get worse… because there’s still NO PLAN. NO VISION. No method being presented that will ensure these problems are actually solved.

But… their INACTION on Reproductive Rights, has been a BOON for their BOTTOM LINE.

I don’t like the idea of politicians profiting off of their own INACTION. Be it monetarily or otherwise, the fact that some elected officials have more to gain personally by standing in the way of lifesaving legislation, is abhorrent.

Even worse than that, Governor Ron Desantis of the Great State of Florida, is currently spending MILLIONS of dollars trafficking WOMEN and CHILDREN off to other States… instead of doing what’s required… actually addressing the problems those migrant families are facing.

These problems can be SOLVED, yet money is actively being spent to enflame the situation… and there is NO LEGISLATIVE RESPONSE.

That’s my problem. That’s what pisses me off. It’s not the fact that I have NO POWER… it’s the fact that no one seems to have the power to CHANGE what’s happening right now. None of us do… even when one party holds the MAJORITY.

Generations have suffered, and they will continue to do so.

They say patients is a virtue… they say that about COMPASSION as well.

Now, wouldn’t that be a shame.

The Time is Always Right to Do the Right Thing.

When I first started my 2020 campaign, I ran on ideals… like elevating the Will of The People, ensuring Liberty and Justice for ALL, and fighting for Equal Justice Under the Law. Virtuous, Righteous Ideals. Just as every successful candidate has done.

With practice and patience… with hard work and careful contemplation… a vision was forged. A method that might bring about an end to all this madness… a substantive GOAL to be reached.

The WORDS they speak, are the resume of the candidates. Their answer to the question- ‘What’s your vision for the future of this Nation?

That was a damn fine speech.

If that speech had been given by a candidate seeking OFFICE this fall, that speech might have sealed it. It hit all the right marks.

But that speech wasn’t given by a candidate seeking office. That speech wasn’t given by a civilian with NO POWER, someone fighting to make change happen. That speech was given by an INCUMBENT. An ELECTED OFFICIAL, who currently holds the reins of POWER.

The soaring WORDS of an aged historian ring HOLLOW… when compared to the legislative agendas pursued by the man who said them.

He said, “We The People, are the TRUE HEIRS of the experiment that began more than two centuries ago. We The People, have burning inside each of us, the Flame of Liberty that was lit here at Independence Hall.

Indeed we do Sir… every one of us.

We are still, at our CORE a Democracy. And yet, history tells us that blind loyalty to a single leader and a willingness to engage in political violence, is fatal to Democracy.

I most certainly agree.

Because right now, ONE MAN stands OPPOSED to the Will of the MAJORITY. Thus rendering his speech to the realm of the aspirational. A vision of what could BE, if only

If only we were willing to accept EQUITY… in lieu of EQUALITY.

EQUITY is not the same as EQUALITY.
Only EQUAL. MEANS. EQUAL.

Partisan political rhetoric is a TOOL used to secure power, in order to enact a particular legislative agenda. Partisan political rhetoric is NOT a legislative agenda.

Every American Citizen believes in the promise of Our Founding Documents. All of us share in the CELEBRATION of Our Independence. That is not in question. The question is… what are you going to do to secure it?

It doesn’t matter how angry Joe Biden gets… he’s still going to be Joe Biden. The former Vice President of these United States… the former Senator from the Great State of Delaware. The former Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee… the former Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

We all know who Joe Biden is, but I will be voting for Democratic Candidates on the ballot this fall in spite of that. The stakes are just TOO HIGH to do otherwise.

0E8C014E-EC79-4245-A5BF-FBAAE2DAD7DCDD128FD4-0818-43AD-AC6F-31F37CE0223Dhttps://www.nytimes.com/2022/07/17/health/abortion-miscarriage-treatment.html 

Partisan political rhetoric will not SAVE LIVES. Only ACTION will do that. And so… we must ACT. We must VOTE. We must sound the siren and STAND UP for our Unalienable Rights.

When you defend the Rights of OTHERS, you defend those Rights for YOURSELF.

President Biden has called on us to VOTE… so that is what we must do. If he cannot summon the political COURAGE necessary to do what’s required, then we must make it easy for him to change his mind. We must fill the Senate with candidates who will ACT to secure Equality.

Every man, woman, and child who is legally eligible to VOTE, must STAND UP and DEFEND the Rights of Women and Girls this fall. We must SHOW President Biden and the Leadership of the Democratic Party, that it’s in their best interest to listen to the Will of the American People.

As we did in 2018. As we did in 2020. As we will do in 2022.
And if they fail us… as we will do once again in 2024.

We must send them the TOOLS necessary to secure Equal Rights for Women and Girls. Every day, without the protection of EQUAL STANDING UNDER LAW, more women will suffer, and more women will die… needlessly.

It’s no longer hypothetical. It’s a FACT… and we cannot wait until 2024.

Not for the sake of ONE PERSON. Not for the sake of ONE PARTY.
Let us do this NOW… in 2022.

Because it’s the RIGHT thing to do.

Without Fear or Favor

Has love failed in the face of rising violence, or can love overcome the violence we see? Can we find common ground, or are we now hopelessly divided? Once we recognize this violence is born from a place of love… we will find TRUE reconciliation.

We must re-examine what it is we perceive to be JUST.

Just listen to what they are saying. They FEAR being replaced… and what does that mean? It means a loss of perceived stature. A loss of economic stability. A loss of personal Liberty. And can you blame them? It’s been portrayed as an invasion… a threat to Our Homeland.

When viewed in this LIGHT, they are acting out of love. For themselves. For their families. For the fate of this Nation… as if our own NEIGHBORS were the enemy. As if our own neighbors were somehow to blame for all our problems.

As if our friends and neighbors weren’t going through the exact same things, they were going through right now.

It doesn’t matter what your beliefs are.
It doesn’t matter what your stature is.

It doesn’t matter how much MONEY you have in your POCKET… there will always be someone out there with MORE. There will always be someone who doesn’t need your money. Because their cause isn’t about money… it’s about something MORE.

The HEART of the Argument

The system we now have in place no longer works for the American People… but then again, maybe it never did. It was just the closest approximation to what the people wanted as we could conceive. And it has worked surprisingly well… just so long as The People aren’t hopelessly DIVIDED.

And that’s the BEAUTY of the experiment. I’m not just speculating… I have PROOF that it works. Actual evidence… our SHARED HISTORY.

But you heard President Biden… this is how it’s supposed to work. Compromise. Bipartisanship… just like it’s always been. C’mon man! What are you trying to do here, rock the BOAT?

He’s fighting to keep America the way it’s always been. Just like it was back in HIS day… when he was a Senator.

I think maybe he’s missing the POINT.

The Soul of America must look quite different, when seen through the fence of a Gated Community.

If you go and dissect it… get it down to the HEART of the argument… you find that nugget of TRUTH upon which the entire idea was formed. The SAND inside the PEARL. Seen through the “eyes” of the bivalve… it’s that irritant it was trying to isolate all along.

Best as I can tell, most of us are RIGHT about 66% of the time. That other 33% or so… we are straight up WRONG. I can call it out just as anyone can. Hell… we do it all the time. We watch “NEWS” shows that constantly highlight when everyone ELSE is stuck in that 33% range.

BUT… like a wise man once said- You never know when YOUR TIME in the barrel will come.

I might be paraphrasing, but I do not mean to downplay or belittle the threat. On this point, every American Citizen seems to be in agreement. The threat is most certainly REAL. Unfortunately, 33% of us don’t seem to know where that threat is coming from.

Insanity begets insanity… but what’s worse, is insanity left UNADDRESSED. Disease undetected. We must diagnose it before we begin to treat it.

We must HEAL the wound, or it will lead to our demise.

For the majority of my adult life our Nation has been at WAR. For twenty years we fought in TWO COUNTRIES, seeking vengeance against those who had done us harm. Under the leadership of
FOUR different Administrations.

My fellow Americans… did that military endeavor make us SAFER than we were before?

Would we seek to re-elect those leaders who got us into that mess in the first place? Would we seek to elevate the advisors who were in the room when those decisions were being made? Imagine if we did… what result would we see?

Even now, as we can point to overwhelming evidence that shows their strategies were ill-informed, would they choose to avoid those mistakes in a future endeavor… or would they just stick to their same old WAYS?

C’mon man, that’s Joe Biden we’re talking about here! We ALL know who he is… that’s what got him elected in the FIRST PLACE.

We can’t have it BOTH WAYS. Either we want things to CHANGE, or we want things to remain the SAME. Why would we think a second term would be any different than the FIRST? So far, it’s going exactly as it did the last time he spent 8 YEARS in the Oval Office.

He stood by President Obama’s side and advised him on every issue, including Afghanistan. Their leadership created the situation unfolding on the ground in Ukraine TODAY… a situation that began on their watch, in the SPRING of 2014.

Why would we expect anything different?
Why would we expect anything to CHANGE?

Familiarity and nostalgia may bring comfort… but we need to step outside our comfort zone if we want things to genuinely change.

If we choose to do nothing, then it will be our fault as well…
As if WE were the ones storming OUR CAPITOL.

To be SILENT is to be COMPLICIT in Her demise.

Why would Donald Trump think the FBI raid on Mar-A-Lago was executed by the Democrats and Joe Biden, and not the Department of Justice?

Because that’s what he would have done. That’s the process he would have pursued. That’s the preview for the Main Attraction. COMING SOON! The SEQUAL to his first term in office.

When you DONATE to Donald J. Trump… this is what you’ll get.

I heard one of the talking heads the other day, ask if this would be the thing that finally CRACKS the support of the Republican Party…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gang_of_Eight_(intelligence) 

The Gang of Eight is briefed on all matters of National Security, and an investigation involving charges that stem from the Espionage Act would definitely qualify as a matter of National Security.

Nancy Pelosi said on Morning Joe she wasn’t briefed in advance.
Senator Schumer told Rachel Maddow that he had no clue.
The White House said they first heard about it on Twitter.

Why would they LIE in public as opposed to TELLING THE TRUTH? Playing politics with our National Security is UNACCEPTABLE.

Every American Citizen deserves the TRUTH.

Something doesn’t smell right here. Either they are being briefed on matters of National Security or they aren’t. IF they are, then they’re lying. IF they’re not, then what the hell is going on on Capitol Hill?

Boy, I sure hope the Leadership of the Democratic Party is telling the TRUTH. Because if they’re not… then the GOP is gonna have a FIELD DAY with this one.

But I don’t feel sorry for Speaker Pelosi or Majority Leader Schumer. They weighed the consequences of their actions and chose to speak on the subject. They didn’t have to say a word about it. They could have been HONEST and said it would be inappropriate to comment on an ongoing investigation and just left it at that.

To tell you the truth… the person I feel sorry for is Kevin McCarthy. If the Gang of Eight was briefed on the nature of these documents, then he would have known about the execution of this search warrant WEEKS in advance.

What did he know and when did he know it?
It’s gonna be hard to explain that one to Donald Trump… and that’ll make it hard to secure the support of his party in 2023.

… 

We’ve created this cast of characters through OUR VOTE. With OUR CONSENT. What does it say that the “UltraMAGA” supporters continue to call for whatever Donald Trump wants?

Does it say more about the people who would continue to support him, or does it say more about the SYSTEM that would allow a candidate like Donald J. Trump to continue to flourish… becoming their ONLY OPTION. Their candidate of last resort.

In the eyes of some, there are no alternatives left. Sometimes… you just have to knock the whole thing OVER and start again.

As it is in the wake of a violent STORM. As it is in the aftermath of a devastating FLOOD. Few things can compare with the effective strength of a massive body of WATER on structural integrity.

Water, neglect, and the passage of TIME come to mind.

And now, as some call for us to tear it all down, I wonder… what would they have us install in its place? Shall we tear down the statues of Washington so we can immortalize the Art of the Deal? Are we ready to toss aside the notion that in this Country, there are no Kings or Queens?

Or is there something MORE… something that goes beyond the TWO CHOICES on the ballot this fall? How can we ever expect to find the ANSWERS to these questions… when the resolution we have looks like THIS?

CLARITY… above all else.

The Will of The People must be heard.

Not the Will of the DONORS. Not the Will of the SPECIAL INTERESTS.

The Will of EVERY American Citizen.

stone.tif

The fight is not to destroy our Union… the fight is to secure it.

Let us waste NO TIME debating any strategy that would seek to undo what has already been done. There are no stronger advocates for Democracy in this world than the people of the United States of America. Because we know, our National Security is ensured when the VOICE of The People is ensured.

Every Citizen. Every Election.

More participation equals BETTER GOVERNANCE.
