Been there, done that.

We stand poised, on the EDGE of history. Right now, what we do will echo throughout time. Choose your words wisely…

Marching armies stand at the ready as we bicker about taking a knee. Children scream for their mothers, while ‘leaders’ are in bed with spies. Thousands have died and thousands more suffer, in the wealthiest country in the world, due to our inability to prepare for a storm.

When asked to do our duty, to god and our country, leaders point out the faults of others, to justify themselves. When criminals are made to stand for their actions, our leaders say “Well I barely knew him.” When the story is written about how our enemy penetrated our system, after LIES become known, and corruption is aired, how will they be portrayed?

How will YOU be portrayed?

NOW is that time. Here… THIS is that place. Tomorrow, when they ask “Where did you stand? What did you do?” What will you say?

How can people defend the indefensible? Why would someone believe the path to success is found by holding others back? How can leaders speak of making things better when they dehumanize our sisters? How can they promote safety for a country founded by immigrants escaping persecution, by imprisoning children seeking safety?

President James Buchanan sat and watched as State after State walked away from Our Union. He believed the secession was illegal, but he ALSO believed the fight to preserve the Union was illegal.

Our Country is drowning in a flood RIGHT NOW, but leadership points out, “The sign says ‘No Swimming’.”

History is replete with stories of ‘blind ignorance’. The smokestacks billowed while neighboring towns claimed they had no idea. The memo said terrorist determined to strike in America, yet no one could have anticipated an airplane being used like that. 5000 people died because NO ONE could foresee a tropical island nation being devastated by a hurricane.

And NOW, a mother screams “Where is my baby?” and the response is Make America Great Again. Young Black men are shot dead by a man with badge, and the response is All Lives Matter. High school children go to school in fear of another mass shooting, and all we hear is “We should not act while emotions are so raw.”

BULLSHIT! NOW is the time for action. BEFORE the shots are fired, BEFORE another Kent State Massacre, BEFORE the marching in the street becomes mourning in the sanctuary. BEFORE we are forced to take whatever ‘they’ wanna give us… then cast us aside with all the ‘others’ they have forced before.

Heed the warnings of thousands of lost souls… “THIS FAR AND NO FARTHER!!” We know how this story plays out, we have seen this tired plot. The story ends exactly how it has before- GOOD TRIUMPHS OVER EVIL…  every time! We do not need to watch this movie again, WE can fast forward to the good part.

We have paid for that shared history in blood. We treasure the unity we have gained in shared loss. We’ve strived, for a full century, to achieve lasting peace in unity, sharing the fruits of our grandparents’ legislative and diplomatic accomplishments. And now, some question if all of that was in vein.

We CAN learn that lesson again… OR we can honor their memories in the way they would have wanted us to-

By standing FIRM and defending the Rights of ALL who wish to live free. By being the example that lights the way for others to follow. By showing strength, and heeding the call of wisdom, to speak truth to power, to ensure true evil is never allowed to flourish again.

Yup…

So… yeah. I was the only one who showed up to my “press conference”. I thought I had convinced at least one person I had the right idea. IDK… maybe I haven’t communicated clearly? Maybe I overestimated Twitter. Maybe I have a bad idea. I would have thought by now someone would have said so.

But it is a BEGINING, and in no way THE END. I was giving myself pep talks, to build my confidence, thinking the same thing. So, now I’ll use that as a comfort. It was not my last event. Hopefully next time, I won’t be there alone.

I just wanted to provide an end goal everyone could rally around. An alternative to what is happening right now. I felt it could sway opinions since there would be a solution to support, instead of just fighting AGAINST…

I’m not going away. I’ll be here. Patients is a virtue. I wish I had it.

keep your head up.

A Moment For Clarity

 

I was hoping my campaign rollout speech would be a lot flashier than this. Possibly a celebration. After all, no matter what I want to change, the fact is- campaigns run on donations. Without money, you cannot run.

But, I am motivated today for reasons, no one celebrates. I made my first campaign video on February 17, 2018, three days after the shooting at MSDHS. On that day, I decided to fully commit to a wild-eyed, half baked notion, that humanity CAN GOVERN ITSELF.

The idea was not mine, but it has become more and more obvious, since I first contemplated what a Presidential run would look like, for a “housewife” like myself.

Who would vote for “some guy” from Kansas?!!

Each day I have asked myself that question, and each day I find, more people than I thought the previous day, would entertain that idea. It is an explosive idea, and NOT to be toyed with. It is, in a sense, a “sacred” honor for Citizens of this Nation. The penultimate embodiment, of “American Exceptionalism”.

And I choose to pursue it, NOW.

I am Jack Charbonneau, and I am running for president, as an Independent candidate, in 2020. Funded ONLY by individual contributions, NOT beholden to any entity, other than my political campaign named “Jack Charbonneau 2020: Political revolution”. JackCharbonneau.com

And as I said, I would have preferred balloons… maybe a band? Definitely a BANNER. being the soul contributor to my campaign makes that difficult. And I feel my hand has been forced. Someone said, “Call.” Since I’m already “all in”… it’s time to lay ’em down.

On Monday this week a man, named Donald Trump, CAPITULATED to a hostile foreign adversary. BOTH Leaders stood, speaking of uniting our countries’ counter-intelligence services, to help stop terror. Working with Israel, and Iran, to further peaceful use of radioactive materials, and spoke NOTHING of the MURDER of dissidents, the SILENCING of opposition, or the MURDER of journalists reporting the TRUTH.

ALL of which effects EVRY SINGLE PERSON in this country, but seemingly, only on some far distance scale. I should be more worried about putting food in front of my kids, than I am some Billionaire Strongmen, profiting off of Our National Security… as it should be!

The Leadership of the United States Congress, and The President himself, DO NOT represent the ideals of the majority of the country. From Statehouse, to The House, the candidates presented are on the ballot because of ONE REASON- they have received money, from an organization or group, with a particular agenda and, money to BURN.

These candidates seek office to legislate for the DONORS, NOT the VOTERS.

RED or BLUE… they are BOTH the same.

When We choose to STAND UP and DEMAND corrupt money is removed from Our elections, and create an election system that is 100% Tax Payer Funded, our elections will start to focus on the candidates’ IDEAS, not on their bank accounts.

… On VOTERS, not DONORS.

… On SOLUTIONS, not DECEPTION.

… On the Rule of Law, not LIES.

Because it is obvious, our elected officials seem to side with special interest groups over voters EVERYTIME.

I humbly ask every voter one question: “Would you sign a petition to allow an Independent, third candidate on the ballot for President in 2020?”

Ours is a government Of The People. As such, we OWN every action taken by OUR Government. In OUR name, we give OUR Blessing, each time We vote. The power of the vote is expressed clearly in a winner-take-all system, with only the rare exception.

The President of the United States has been chosen 45 times now, with a clear majority of voters being represented by the winner. Only a small number of times has the vote been split, by three or more candidates, leading to a President without a clear majority, and still FEWER have won the Popular Vote, only to loose the Electoral College.

And in the clear cut elections, the numbers match the intentions of the electorate. When our system of governance works as intended…

When the American people UNITE behind a President, we visit other worlds in Peace, for ALL Mankind.

When the American People come to the defense of Liberty abroad, CONTINENTS remain FREE.

When We Stand for the idea that ALL Mankind is created EQUAL, we are UNSTOPPABLE!

The Office of the President has changed dramatically, since first held by Washington with, 4 cabinet positions. The responsibilities of our Nation, have grown in number and importance, and today the Office of our Chief Executive holds the responsibility, of safeguarding every living being on this Earth.

Our scientific achievements are the direct product of the greatest, democratic “Experiment” ever undertaken. We are here today as testament to that fact!

After forty-five elections, we can conclude unequivocally, the Experiment IS A SUCCESS!  Mankind CAN govern itself IN PEACE! The “safeguard” put in place, over two hundred years ago, to protect our elections from interference by foreign enemies, has proven to be it’s fatal error. It is the weakness our enemy exploits for victory. Our Electoral College has been exploited, twice now in 20 years, to bring to power a minority opinion. A brand of governance that has produced two wars, trillions in debt, an economic disaster, and the undermining of our faith in government.

And now, we see, by not taking full responsibility for the Power of our vote, by NOT owning the Office that represents the People, of the Last Best Chance for Humanity on the Face of the Earth, we have lost Our voice in governance. We have allowed ‘others’ to decide our fate.

We MUST take control BACK, and control our SHARED DESTINY. We must SPEAK OUT, in unison, before that Right is TAKEN AWAY.

-100% tax payer funded elections.

-ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE, OPEN and SECURE voter EMPOWERMENT, safeguarding our Right to vote.

-Primary Elections with MULTIPLE ballots by the National Electorate.

All of this will create a legislature that governs with the People’s interests in mind. Once the corruption is removed, fair and just Laws will replace Laws that keep others down, Laws that hold US ALL back, from discovering TRUTH.

The politics of FEAR and DIVISON is over. Everyone should STAND UP and SPEAK CLEARLY. These are NOT times to be SILENT. The enemy we face today thrives in SILENCE. OPEN and HONEST debate, in ‘good faith’, will show everyone exactly where you stand. And regardless what your ideology is, when you stand for Equal Justice Under Law, We ALL stand on the winning side.

We must END the Electoral College.

Official Campaign Statement: The Reason for Ending The Electoral College

“Selling The Drama”

The message of the People was spoken loud and clear in 2016… The System is BROKEN. It must change from WITHOUT. Hold your nose, here we go.

Because we were given, once again as it has been in so many past elections, the choice between the “lesser of two evils”. But BOTH candidates this time around were ‘evils’, none the less! With “encouragement” on one side, and the other side… an “elitist mentality” in charge of the execution of a political campaign, we have elected a TRUE catalyst of Change. Our in-fighting and distrust of our countrymen led us to elect a morally bankrupt President. It’s not a shock, because the runner-up was thoroughly vetted in 2008, and the voters decided then that her vote in favor of war in Iraq was a disqualifier for the Presidency.

IF we negate everything… the constant lies, the racism, the uncaring attitude toward those in need, the collusion, the criminal acts… the other candidate was still Hillary Clinton. Our system, as flawed and corrupt as it is, STILL produces the best candidates available, even if it is only the best from a small, stagnated political pool.

Karma knows no race, no creed, and no sex.

Hillary sealed her own fate when she tilted the playing field in her favor in the primary elections against Bernie Sanders. By removing the blindfold, by intentionally manipulating the system to her advantage, the more appropriate candidate for THAT period of time, was cheated out of his chance to defeat Donald Trump.

I have no doubt Bernie would have SMOKED Donald Trump in the debates.

Slowly, or maybe not as slowly as it seems, Republicans are realizing what Democrats knew all along… Donald Trump is not ‘Of the People’ as he claimed to be. He is not on the side of “Working Class” Americans. He is of the same “class” we voted against in 2012. The people who shun the “47%” of citizens who “sponge” off the system. The “power hungry” men with a binder full of sexual harassment lawsuits… and future targets.

I believe that, if given a CHOICE between the divisive, corrupted, self-indulgent political candidates from our PAST; or a “clean slate”… a genuine man ‘Of the People’, who possesses the characteristics ALL Americans believe a President should have, who has no corrupt financial agenda, who is presenting a SOLUTION to the societal division that has brought our Legislature to a STANDSTILL…

I believe The People will make the right choice. I believe the People are longing for a candidate who is “clean”. Untouched by a swamp filled with corrupt money burned to fuel ego and power, as well as corrupt money dedicated to subverting the truth. Obfuscating our unity. Belittling compassion as anti-American. I believe we are more united than we let on, because I am a Progressive from Kansas. PROOF that tolerance exists… I have not yet been kicked out!

And this same mindset of ‘funding the subversion of truth’ exists in our political discourse. BOTH sides believe the opposition is attempting to take away their rights! Our guns, our religion, our identity, and now children… where does THAT go? How does THAT EVOLVE? We allow these divisive ideas, these occult agendas, to spark our imaginations because we can plainly see, CLEARLY, the SYSTEM is NOT WORKING. Something is not functioning as it should when established, precedented LAW is publicly broken… and NOTHING happens.

A black man is shot dead in front of his young daughter… and NOTHING happens.

A black man is shot dead in his BACKYARD unarmed… and NOTHING happens.

An old white man promotes sexually violating a woman, and brags about it being acceptable… they let you do anything… and NOTHING happens.

When we start a war to defeat an organization that seeks to spread their ideology via terror, to keep ourselves and others safe from terrorism… BUT we start another war, with another country that has NO known ties to our current enemy, and The President says OUT LOUD, in front of a camera “I really don’t think about him(osama bin laden).”

… and NOTHING happens.

An old white lady tortures a Man for DAYS WITHOUT END, to justify the unjustifiable      … and NOTHING happens.

When all around us we see the details of devils profiting off of the sorrows of our friends and family, we suddenly see EVERYONE as the “devil”. IF no one is living within the rule of Law, then EVERYONE is the enemy… EXCEPT people on “my team”.

Now that the anger and lies have trained our sights inward, the last piece falls into place- “No one follows the Law.” “The other side wants to take away what’s left of my rights.” “I cannot trust anyone.” “EVEN IF their argument is the Truth and the answer, it MUST be corrupted and unlawful.”

Our Constitution provides the structure, within which our Rights EXIST. Without it, our Rights DO NOT EXIST. To disregard one is to throw away another. The ONLY truth is WITHIN the Constitution. The immovable rock ALL is built upon. Our faith in this Document is unwavering because it is our DUTY to defend it. The Law presents the method for our government to function, and when our government is functioning poorly the remedies are written within as well.

The “Checks and Balances” will correct! If they do not, then NO PROBLEM existed to begin with. IF there WAS a problem and the Law could not fix it, that would suggest fault with OUR system, and those who are suggesting legal subversion of the Constitution are just as TREASONOUS as those who colluded with the enemy…

BUT WHO IS THE ENEMY?!!

Others… who don’t “look like me”, who don’t “speak like me”, who don’t “worship the same god”… who I cannot prove belong here.

BUT WHO BELONGS HERE?!!

I can discredit your arguments with ‘But IFs’ and ‘Whatabouts’ all day long, and we would go ’round and ’round, back to where we started. As our arguments have gone and come ’round full circle, we stand pointing a finger at “others”. “So he did it, that means I can, too.” “But why didn’t we investigate her? Why does she get away with obvious crimes?” “I’ve been wronged by society, by corrupt laws, so now I will manipulate Law to bring ‘justice’ for myself, as ‘others’ seem to be doing.”

If We want to change an unjust system, we MUST look forward to what CAN BE. If we legislate with our hearts focused on the PAST, we will fall back into the tainted cycle of the political pendulum.

Our problem is ‘dilution’. The power of the ballot box is extraordinary and can effect the destiny of every living being on this planet. Yet, it is “watered down” by the Electoral College. No matter the strength of support for, or opposition against a candidate, the outcome of our election is decided WEEKS AFTER the ballots are counted. And EVERY voter knows the Electors have the Liberty to choose whomever they “feel” should be president. We HOPE they do as the voters decide! We can only hope, though.

The fate of Nations decided on a cold day in December, behind closed doors, with little regard for the People who are effected most by the outcome, all firmly based on a “hope”.

That’s NOT a very Pride-inspiring description!

When We chose to take responsibility for the POWER of our vote. When We OWN the awesome power of Our Commander-In-Chief… a CITIZEN, from among ourselves, picked to be elevated as a representative of our Nation… we will see that “hope” vanish, to be replaced with JOYFUL HUMILITY!

100% Tax Payer Funded Elections

ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE Nationwide OPEN and SECURE voter empowerment

Debates focused on SOLUTIONS and IDEAS, not FUNDRAISING and DONORS

By taking PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for the POWER of Our Vote, we ensure that Right CANNOT be taken away from us. We ALL must understand the consequences for our carelessness, not to punish ourselves or others, but to LEARN from mistakes and GROW to be better than yesterday. Stronger tomorrow.

End The Electoral College!

…with respect and humility.

Our grandparents touched evil. Our great-grandparents knew what it meant to have families separated. Their innocence was lost and their reality was threatened by true evil.

Evil so hideous, that it would brainwash a mother to jump to her death with child in her arms, than suffer at the hands of Allied Forces in the Pacific Ocean. Evil so potent that it could convince others a race of humanity was the cause of their misfortune. That the solution to the ills of the economic world would be the total demise of the culture and beliefs, of a People, who brought forth to the world Jesus of Nazareth. And to THAT end, would they not have eventually seen the followers of Jesus himself as part of their ‘solution’?

After defeating the Axis Powers, our Great and Grandparents tried to tell their children of the dangers they knew. They warned them of how this evil rose to power. How the coward is the courter of the devil, and that No Appeasement should be given.

This Far, and No Farther!

That men Of Peace know not of the World War that raged before. Education being the remedy, they taught steadfast courage and adherence to the rights of Humanity were the ONLY solution, come what may.

Men of Courage were born of that war. Bush, Reagan, Kennedy… Eisenhower knew that war was not the weapon of choice. And we know it solves nothing. It only eliminates our Brothers, as sure as our enemies tried to kill theirs.

But, would we trade, if offered in a genuine sense, this that we know, for the past to be changed and war to be avoided? At first thought, I want to say Yes. Of course the avoidance of a World War as all-encompassing as the second was would be amazing! Just in the scores of families that would not have been destroyed. the countless souls who died because of the beliefs of others. The inhumane losses born by citizens neglected in times of crisis.

But I hesitate. Only because I realize the gains humanity has enjoyed because we stood for the liberty of others. The Civil Rights Movement may not have taken flight. As soldiers came back to a segregated America, they were inspired to create the freedom they enjoyed abroad, here. The Women’s Movement may not have risen. After enjoying equality in sports, in manufacturing, in Society while the men fought overseas, it was degrading for them to be forced back into servitude as the men came home.

The Technological Revolution we are all a part of NOW, was fully funded and encouraged during the war for counter espionage. breaking codes, tracking ballistic missiles beyond the horizon, aerial photography from the edge of space, knowledge that lie at the heart of the atom itself…

And so many more advances we take for granted today. Open markets across the planet, human rights expanded to countries that oppressed their people, the knowledge and confidence to go to the MOON was born from the horrors of war. The cost of every life lost was paid IN FULL by our grandparents, and it is not given to us today as if it were our inheritance. It was won, hard fought by them, so we could have a CHANCE to fight for it AGAIN. Today. So it is, that EVERY generation must make that choice.

Because the Choice is ALWAYS Ours.

So we balance these questions on a razor’s edge today. As sure as people were in the streets in the 1960s, we see it today. As sure as napalm leveled the jungles of Vietnam, the drones fly high in the cradle of civilization, devoiding the desert of humanity.

The lessons learned are not forgotten. For those with eyes to see, the fight is as fierce as it was then. And the stage is set for a fight today that NO ONE wants to see. That NO ONE wants to start. That is so potent, I fear it may have already started…

But NOW we have a choice. The choice has always been with Us. It is NOT the in the leaders’ hands. It is NOT in our enemies’ hands. It is in OUR HANDS. The Liberty to choose our own destiny is NOT ours alone, we are a small part of a LONG line that stood before us, and the line that stretches off into the unknown infinite, but we are given the righteous responsibility to defend it NOW, as it has, and will be given again.

NOW, our war is rhetoric. Our injustice is only an injustice of Words. NOW, we see how powerful the pen can be, because the Words of ONE MAN have put back into motion the mechanisms that enabled evils, now only remembered. NOW, the words produced by a leader and his men, have started down a path we ALL know too well.

And we will ALL OWN IT…. come what may.

DO NOT spark the powder kegs! DO NOT injure like they would encourage. But NEVER BE SILENT. ALWAYS stand firm and SPEAK LOUDLY. Proclaim where you stand NOW, for when they try to take that freedom from you, and they ask you “Where do YOU stand?” we will ALL know. The people around you, the people behind you, and the people you didn’t even know could hear how LOUD your voice was… can hear you, too.

If NO ONE stands SILENT then the MINORITY BELIEFS will not corrupt the Truth. Fear cannot silence TRUTH when we stand United. We speak out when Law is subverted because without Law, we cannot find TRUTH.

Equal protection Under Law.

When enforcement of the Law is detrimental to the citizens that established it, The LAW MUST CHANGE. Seeking to craft Legislation that reflects the values that ALL Americans share, those that are taught to every generation in the ancient texts of every caring religion on Earth, is why people established Our Government in the first place- it is the “Just Patriotism” George Washington spoke of in his Farewell Address. Our Constitution isn’t celebrated because it is OUR Constitution, it is celebrated because it is a document worth celebrating!

Pride in our Law, in Our Constitution is expressed clearly when we speak in unison, and demand an unjust law be repealed immediately.

Long Live The Constitution!

Long Live the OFFICE of the President of the United States!

Keep your head UP!!

A Scout is Brave.

WHY are you so angry? Process it. Root it out. WHY are we triggered to anger when we’re told “others” are coming to take our jobs, our safety, our LIVES.

One answer: we are all crazy. Seriously, the way mental health is portrayed in most people’s lives, as a personal weakness if you have to go to a shrink. Some of us walk around in our daily lives wondering if we can find the inner strength to make it through one more day, and somehow seem to struggle through. And all the while, passing on the street, people coming and going without a passing glance, souls who have seen horrors we could not even imagine existed… and not quite as strong as ourselves. And but for the random chance of a passing stranger’s caring glance, or the stray alley cat with one ear missing rubbing against a leg. Maybe, not so bad…

Another answer- we’re being manipulated. Not just straight lying. That’s too easy to spot. You have to convince people to change their views, or they won’t be deeply held. Make an emotional connection with people’s inner soul, what makes ’em tick. Gotta hit ’em right where they live. Something they can relate to, from their past. An ever present ‘us vs. them’ feeling, keeping you on edge and maybe lose some sleep.

BREAKING NEWS: ‘They’ are just over the border, off the coast of the State, coming in boats like landing craft on D-Day. Are YOU safe?? Watch the “buy my crap” news team, tonite!

How many generations are we talking about here? How many different ‘others’ have their been in the last 17 years… 40 years… 60, 80 years… All being fed fears of ‘us against them’, to the benefit of only those who profit from fear and hate. The people who profit from constructing walls. Who profit when we fear a someone and need to protect our something. So we RUSH RIGHT OUT and BUY a thing that will stop a them. Because we are designed to. Intentionally.

The science of mental health is successful because we have learned what makes the mind work the way it does. After all, it is a science. We know how to treat diseases of the mind because we find their origins, and follow the evolution of a mind from childhood to adulthood. In order to treat the disease successfully, we must know what causes it… This means we must know, necesarily, how to destroy a mind as well as how to heal it.

Through the scientific method, with determination the size of the American Spirit, anything is possible.

So, stop and attempt to understand the origin of your rage. If these groups of people are so dangerous and such a threat that we must spend millions to stop them, but they will keep coming, and more walls need to be built… People say we have to secure the borders to stop terrorists. Stop terrorists? From WITHOUT? I have two words to say to that- Timothy McVeigh. The people from abroad who seek to do our country harm are nothing compared to the homegrown version we cultivate currently. America First.

The natural emotional responses of the human mind are studied by commercial industries to sell brands. To make you remember who has the best fries in America. So you will remember what car maker is “going places”. To drill into your head what meat Bigfoot likes to eat. You should enjoy this meat product because you relate to some thing or person that situation and outcome…

Once we understand the triggers, the emotional response that is desired, and the action implied, we will see who stands on the side of The People. We have to come together and see we’re all on the same side of the street. We are all standing waiting for a bus, wishing for a better life for ourselves and our family, not wanting to be standing here waiting for the bus! We are all striving to be heard and being yelled down by someone who knows better than ourselves.

We are all just trying to make a buck and get closer to the goals we set in our lives.

We are all human, born imperfect and striving for perfection, and everyone should remember that, and show compassion because we’ve all been there, or will be someday…

This officer tased this suspect while he was submissive and attempting to comply.

What makes you mad? Why are you so mad that you could scream?

I promise the solution to this is SPEAKING OUT. Silence is what brought us here, and silence will bring us more of the same. Share ideas, share feelings, share the joy we find when we give a hand to others, and lend an ear to gain knowledge. No one grows as a person, through war. War breaks people down. War grinds strong people to dust slowly over decades. You wanna find answers on a spiritual level? Listen to the heartache of another human being and give emotional support. You might find answers to problems in your life by helping someone else with their’s.

…at least that’s how I see it.

Keep your head up!

The Sword

The idea of coming together and turning our swords into plow shares is both a beautiful aspiration for peace and a statement of blissful ignorance. The Liberty we enjoy today is not given freely as a gift, but OWNED by each successive generation.

We enjoy the CHOICE at all times.

And throughout time, the sword has always been sought as a last resort by those of patients and thought. In this new battlefield, in this war of 1’s and 0’s, the pen is now the sword. In a world where TRUTH is being hawked as LIES, and men of HONOR are stoned for speaking truth, of course the allegorical is now literal!

Look at me… I’m off to fight a “Giant”, the “leader” of the United States.

And all of us are “in the streets” on social media, calling on leaders to DO something, and Our leaders are TALKING about their past accomplishments. The actions our elected officials engage in are obstruction and grandstanding, and they go to great lengths to do so! All while individuals sit on the couch, networking with people in Florida, and New York, and Kansas City, and Mobile, working hard to make a revolution happen. But don’t believe everything you see on TV.

“Live! From Kansas City, it’s a Political REVOLUTION!!”

How amazing is it that grown men are taking their cues from teenagers in a Florida high school?

How shameful is it that the President of the United States of America befriends murders and dictators while spitting in the face of our closest allies?

Right now, Our government has taken children from their parents and holds them prisoner, subcontracting the resposibility of the well being and care of these kids to religious organizations… And the most ordained solution I can envision is rallying every single biker and Harley owner in the country to ride for THIER freedom.

Bikers for Babies? You Damned Straight.

When we stand for the Rule of Law, it cannot be selective. It is for EVERYONE, or it is for NO ONE. If we deny a despot the right to a trial, then we condemn to death the Liberty of our own children. We cannot think ourselves immune to the trampling of our basic human rights because they are carried out in “another land”. If we turn away, knowing these things are happening, it is as if I hold the chains that imprison them, myself.

The surest path to victory in a War of Words is to disarm your opponent.

Through CENSORSHIP, you achieve the appearance of victory, because when silence is what you practice, you won’t see your defeat coming. If LIES are the weapon you choose, your downfall was decided long before you even began… In our country, we have defeated the liar many, MANY times before! The surest way to defeat the LIAR is to unite on the side of TRUTH. The TRUTH must reside in a sacred repository.

We are ALL standing TOGETHER on the side of TRUTH when we stand for the Rule of Law.

Equal Protection Under Law.

With Liberty and Justice for ALL, not the “all” that I decide. Not the “all” that “they” decide. ALL. The piecemeal destruction of our TRUST in the Law is intentional. And it is done through deception. Our Govenment is made to look IMPOTENT in the face of obstacles, in order to rally cries of smaller government. If Our government were truly inept, I would rally to that cry! As we all should.

Due to the method of our Congressional Elections, each and every member of both the House AND the Senate, MUST have money to run for office. Without money, their voice will not be heard, even if they have the BEST ideas.

Elected officials do the legislating of the DONORS who support their election bid. Who donates to candidates? Who does NOT?… or, in many cases cannot because of a lack of disposable income due to paying for two kids, a mortgage, a car payment, increasing health care costs, rising gas prices…

People who would benifit the MOST from ‘good’ legislation have no voice in the legislative process. No regulations and no legislation is profitable. Protections and safety cost money. It is as simple as return on investment. If it was not profitable to fund a candidate, it would not be done.

THE GRIDLOCK IS INTENTIONAL.

IT IS KILLING PEOPLE.

And we must own it, or we are ALL doomed to repeat it.
