… would you like to say a few words?

TODAY we have a CHOICE… tomorrow our decision will have been made, and our future will be sown. Our perch on history right now, whether seen as exciting or exhausting… no one can say it has NOT been amazing!

And because of the path I am on, I feel like the most IMPOTENT person on Earth. Like the guy on-deck, swinging away in the batter’s box, a front row seat no closer than THIS… none more helpless or vulnerable.

The antithesis of the pentacle, the polar opposite of everything that stands at the height of power. I sit and scribble on notebook paper words of OPPOSITION, while Men in High Office craft LEGISLATION that will destroy a family. I am searching within myself, to find some calm during this turbulent time, Our President uses the BULLY PULPIT… against us.

On my tablet, I get notifications from different apps through out my day. Uploads, comments, but also weather notifications and… I’m disturbed by a thought I had the other day. I opened my iPad, read through the list and thought, “What a relief… it’s only a Geomagnetic Storm.”

So, I’m watching… swinging away. Trying to get my timing down. CHOMPING at the bit… cliche, cliche…

I feel guilty. Unable to help, but knowing that I can…. humbled that I will. Desperate for patients, but unable to find any. Delusional to believe anyone is actually listening to a word I say. But STUBBORN and persistent. Unable to bend, as required by Our Constitutional Duty. Yes, we are all bound by the SAME OATH the Presidents take when they enter the Office, because they come from US.

We are the balance upon which EVERYTHING is weighed. And I assure you… that weight is felt.

Stand up and speak out. Use your voice to make things better in YOUR life, for the people YOU care about. Because, when you do that, you are supporting ideals a MAJORTIY of Americans support. Good and caring people still live in the Land of the Free! And when you STAND UP and defend Liberty and Justice… FOR ALL, you are NOT ALONE, here… in the Home of the Brave.

When we choose to make things better for ourselves, we make it better for everyone.together without even realizing.

Keep your head UP!!

So… that’s what I’ve got. That’s the pitch. It’s not magic. It’s not LIES. It’s not flashy or trendy… but, then again- That’s not up to me.ūüôÉ

The State of OUR Union

What if there is something else going on… what if there is a hidden element we are NOT aware of? Does that change anyone’s calculations? Would that give anyone PAUSE?

Would anyone be willing to trade their Trophy of Pride for a Badge of Humility, and recognize the truth… whatever that TRUTH may be? If it showed the errors and ACTUALY illuminated where we were led astray, would you be able to accept it… would anyone?

To call into question conclusions reached based on LIES is not a surrender, it is an adaptation. It is a natural progression. Every traveler follows the path East, toward the LIGHT. We are ALL fallible, and anyone can be deceived… for a PRICE.

The political position I have staked out is barron at the moment, but the “tent” I’ve raised has room for EVERYONE… because I cannot do it alone.

BOTH sides have a “boogieman”.

BOTH sides spew venom and hate.

BOTH sides have been VICTIMIZED because we have ALL been lied to. Do you have ANY doubt? Read through Donald Trump’s Tweets.

WHO’S TO BLAME is spoon fed to us DAILY. WHO’S TO BLAME is shifted from cycle to cycle. The person we blamed becomes the “voice of reason” if given enough time. And through the GENERATIONS, when we look back far enough, we can find the ROOTS of the problems we see today in divisive rhetoric of the past.

We will not stand much longer if we continue to fight the wars of the past. Our future is dying in classrooms and churches because the divisive leadership of the PAST refuses to listen to the People they lead.

WHY? …we know why.

“I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth.” -JFK to Congress, May 25, 1961.

This speech gave birth to the Apollo Program. NASA had the vision, the leadership, the daring. THIS speech secured the FUNDING. The program that would send Mankind to the Moon in 8 years was ready to put theory and practice into production. The first contract issued for the production of the Saturn V rocket was to MIT for a navigation system. A flight control computer system that DID NOT EXIST.

We knew we could fly Man to the Moon. On paper, in practice, in knowledge of the Laws of Physics we were prepared to build a vessel that could make the journey. The VERY FIRST piece of equipment NASA invested in was the most infeasable piece of the mission.

Because they BELIEVED it could be done. Because in Our Country, ANYTHING can be done!

History is full of examples of human creativity outpacing what is “possible”. The Pioneers of Flight themselves, the Wright Brothers, did the same thing 66 years earlier. As scientists and inventors were risking their lives attempting to break the laws of gravity, many people believed it couldn’t be done. They risked their reputations and their financial security because they BELIEVED it could be done.

Robert Goddard, the father of modern rocketry, was not recognized for his insight for most of his life. But he understood what was needed to reach orbit, the benefits of using liquid propellant, and multistage flight… and he understood all of this in 1914.

Edison, Tesla, Westinghouse, Jobs, Gates, Musk, Dorsey… Great Vision is useless without PROBLEMS to SOLVE. These visionaries would not be know without the hunger and drive of a populace where creativity and knowledge lead to advancement and adapting… No one knew they needed a light bulb until EVERYONE had one. No one knew they needed a radio until EVERYONE had one. No one knew they needed an iPhone until everyone had one.

The SOCIETY creates the need and the inventor, the scientist, the thinker and the doer fills the demand. But sometimes a need is not recognized. Sometimes we have no idea that there was a better way. When I graduated from high school in 1998, I knew everyone needed a PC in their pocket. Now that I have one, I realize I had no idea how CORRECT that idea was!

The computer that assisted the crew of Apollo 11, it’s navigation system, the hard drive is literally magnets and MILES of copper wire-

wire thru magnet= 1

wire outside magnet= 0

repeat…

repeat…

repeat…

It had a storage space of 72K bytes and was smaller than a bread box.

The potential of the creation was unrealized and its reliability was unknown. How unknown? Mathematician Katherine Johnson was the ‘computer’ NASA tasked with ensuring the accuracy of the digital computer. She did so through the entire flight. She continued to do so until her retirement in 1986.

From the size of a HOUSE to the size of a bread box, down to the size of a wrist watch. The power to do mathematics at the speed of light to the ABILITY to predict and simulate the outcome of the collision of atoms. When my dad brought home my first PC, I was excited to have access to libraries across the planet, right in my bedroom! In 1996, we had NO IDEA what else we were missing.

ALL of these advances. ALL of the technological evolution of the past 230 years has been influence by The United States Constitution and the SOCIETY it has created. From the elimination of Small Pox, to the creation of the Cotton Gin. Transistor radios to the Arecibo radio telescope.

… and all of these facts and figures. Images and inspiration. Historical words heard ALOUD, as if their speaker were alive today! I find them all in my pocket.

Infinite Potential

The ability for anyone to read the words I write is only possible because of Our Society. The device I use to contemplate and create is only possible because WE created the DEMAND… we just didn’t know it. That is a small example of the POWERFUL force for good Our Country is, and a demonstration of the limits of our ability to see what is possible 230 years from now.

The ability to SEE something that does not exist and make it reality, like the MIT software programmers did for the Apollo program, THRIVES in a Country like Ours! The Liberty to apply knowledge gained, to question answers long established, and realize individual talents within a community of like-minded people all working on bettering the lives of all Mankind, on SOME level, gives Our Union a tilt toward Justice. Our desire to make a positive difference in the world shows in our intentions, if not always our deeds.

And no one should be surprised! The Framers of Our Demorcacy were idealists at heart. At a time when Mankind had been ruled by oppressive monarchs, these Men DARED to say Mankind CAN rule itself, fairly, and in peace! They knew, with a sufficient level of common history, the bedrock ideals of Our Constitution would STAND the test of time. That ability… the Liberty to dream big AND make it happen is the Country I believe in.

… where do YOU STAND?

THIS is how it begins.

George W. Bush was very unpopular for the first seven months of his Presidency. Bitter and divisive political climate and a President elected by the Electoral College. Candidate Bush ran a turn-coat message similar to the GOP today. The term “Compassionate Conservatism” was born at the Republican Convention in 2000. I remember listening to Bush’s speech at the Convention and KNOWING it was bullshit when I heard it! It was a hijacking of the Democratic messaging, and I know I wasn’t the only one who saw through it.

Nine months and ten days into the year 2001, the President looked to be incapable at best… what a difference a day makes.

The next day DEFINED both the Man and his Administration. The grandiose highs and the horrifying lows. His ignorant inactions as well as his un-Christian actions in the pursuit of Justice.

Events of that scale CHANGE generations. They radically skew that trajectory of millions, spanning multiple generations. Astronomers take measurements of the position of stars in the sky relative to a previous known position. A measurement taken at a universally recognized point in history- an epoch. Once you have two points you can plot out a trajectory. You can find out how distant a celestial body is from any other object in the sky.

You can predict future locations, you can accurately recreate historical positions.

9/11 DEFINED George W. Bush. 9/11 defined my GENERATION. 9/11 marked the end of a ‘peacetime’ economy, and now my children are growing up in a country consumed by war and war-culture. The most popular online game, played by children and grown men alike, is a militaristic winner-take-all battle simulation with a carnival-like atmosphere.

For a time, our country seemed to celebrate war. Reluctant, but justified, we were fighting a clearly defined enemy… sort of, in a clearly defined geographical location. So it is natural to rally behind the President in war because we ALL have a stake in the outcome… So Iraq was invaded. And that betrayal of the TRUST of the American People has not been forgotten. Just ask Hillary Clinton.

The Son of a former President, SQUEEKED into office, sat on his hands for seven months, then spent 7+ YEARS in office, hailed by some as a Leader, vilified by some as an enabler. From the “Rubble Pile” to the WORST President in US History* in SEVEN years… find TWO points and trace the trajectory.

We must now HEED the wise words of that historic leader-

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice… shame on… you fool me, I won’t get fooled again.”

I remember the first flight I took after 9/11. The intense security. The suspicion of EVERYONE. The prejudice. But also THE UNITY. The intense belief that, NO MATTER WHAT, every single person on that flight had your back, and you theirs! There was NO WAY anyone was gonna take that bird outta the sky without 150 pissed off people to go through first!

We don’t forget. We LEARN. We adapt. We are NOT the same ignorant bunch that inhabited this space on September 10, 2001. We did not seek it, but when it came calling, we did NOT back down. And now we must remember WHY we are so mournful of the events that took place that day… we mourn because we will never be able to go BACK.

Now, HERE we stand.

A President. Elected by the Electoral College. Considered to be incapable at best. He seeks power with the help of some SHADY people. His Branded Plastic Empire has been built by stealing other people’s blocks.

He “loves” murderous dictators.

He ignores the needy.

He misappropriates OUR resources and now people have needlessly died due to STORMS.

He is impotent when foreign leaders doubt American Leadership in the World, but today, due to his actions as THE Leader of the Political Party that holds the power in ALL BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT, men of honor must agree with the CURRENT assessment of our position in the World.

Donald J. Trump is allowing hostile enemies to LISTEN TO HIS PHONE CALLS… knowingly so! IS there no clearer definition of the WORD,

Mr. Speaker?

Mr. Majority Leader?

Usurpation of the PEOPLE is unacceptable! Lies and manipulation of Laws and people, with VAST AMOUNTS OF CASH. Slush funds hidden behind shell companies. All donated by people with money to BURN. Generational fortunes… and hidden within ALL of the shady and “unsightly” political company we keep, we are giving COVER to foreign advasries.

Our enemies are WATCHING… they are as FEISTY as we are! We have been at it now for ALMOST 80 years… They know US as well as we know ourselves! Now our Cold War/ Hot War tit-for-tat has EVOLVED into a Virtual theater of war. The feared “Hot War” has evolved, as well, but we didn’t see it happen.

The Hot War of the Digital Age has ALREADY started. The first shots have been fired. In this battle, instead of Nuclear Annihilation, the weapon is much more like a predator drone. Much more focused… Very precise.

What makes Our Constitution worth more than the parchment it was printed on? What gives that document LIFE? That’s what the objective is in this new war-

The Hearts and Minds of Every American.

The only thing that holds us BACK, from falling back into the darkness, is our FAITH in the Rule of Law and its protections. If we lose THAT… if we degrade that? Then the game is over.

BUT…

Do not despair. Keep looking to the sky. Without the endless expanse of darkness, one would not be able to see the light! The cold and endless expanse of nothingness is sprinkled with beauty and every now and then, you get lucky, and see something in a brand new light.

Keep your head UP!!

Why are YOU voting?

I am shocked no one sees it. I am EXCITED! It’s an upwelling… a surge. A wave BIGGER than anyone can see. The earthquake was MASSIVE, and he continues to damage our Country. But the wave it caused is deceptive. As it approaches shore, its SIZE will become apparent!

 

 

 

 

Voter enthusiasm is high! Voter turnout is at record highs! BOTH Democrat and Republican, excited to vote FOR our basic human rights! NO ONE is excited to go vote for anything supporting Trump’s agenda. Republicans were biting the bullet, and those who despised the MORAL DECAY planned to stay home November 6th.

… but then the Kavanaugh hearings happened.

NO Republican Senator STOOD UP for a victim of sexual assault. NO Republican Senator believed the POWERFUL testimony, under oath, before Congress and the World, of Dr. Christine Blassey Ford. And NONE of them can give a clear answer as to why. Key witnesses were ignored. Credible allegations ignored, perjury dismissed as partisan attacks, politicians IGNORING the SAFETY and WELLBEING of 50% of their constituents. The blatant disregard for the Rule of Law and the wholesale liquidation of Our VALUES as a Country now demands… everyone must vote.

 

 

 

THAT is the surge in Republican enthusiasm. It is painfully obvious to anyone who values Our Constitution… Why am I voting? Because our CURRENT elected officials stand impotent in the face of an imminent threat to our National Security. In fact, IF you watch the actions of the Leader of the Republican Party, our elected officials seem to be AIDING our foreign advasries through INTENTIONAL INACTION.

If you SEE something, SAY something!

So the stage is lit, and the players are at their marks. We see how the story must go. And of course, as has been the constant recurring central theme throughout this entire fiasco, a group of refugees numbering close to 7,000 is making its way HERE, to Our Country… to Our Home. Asking for SAFETY. Asking for a CHANCE…

What are YOU gonna tell them? Would you turn them away? Because that would be, at least, compassionate… compaired to what the President and the Congress and the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security have planned for FAMILIES, REFUGEES… a huddled mass yearning to be FREE.

THIS is the easy part! The unity, the comradery, the “Democracy In Action!”… Pull the Lever and Make a Difference!

AFTER the election… THAT is where the work begins. That is where our mettle will be tested. When the votes are counted and the SHEER SIZE of the rejection becomes apparent… what do you think HE will say? Hmmm…

“More people voted for the Democrat candidate than there are Registered Democrats! RIGGED ELECTION!”

He’s going to test the RESOLVE of the American People. He’s going to STAND, bald-faced, blustering, and barbaric, telling everyone “It’s ‘THEM’! ‘THEY’ did this! ‘THEY’ are trying to take away your ‘THING’ or ‘STUFF’! No Republican would EVER vote against ‘America’!”

STAND… do NOT be silent… in for a DIME, in for a DOLLAR. United, we have stood on shores more dangerous than this, more drenched in blood than we have seen SO FAR. And the lessons that they missed BEFORE we landed at Normandy must be remembered NOW-

No appeasement.

STAND UP for the Rule of Law Everytime. Every where.

Equal Justice Under Law.

And now we MUST add- Equal Means Equal.¬†Because the division stoked by friend and foe alike within our society is fueled by hate and fear, Eliminate the divisive talking point. Race, gender, religion…

We discriminate against others AT OUR OWN PERIL. If it isn’t obvious NOW… just wait until November 7th.

everyone.

… it’s really NOT that hard! It’s actually quite simple. Like, when you were in kindergarten, they taught you a song to remember your ABCs, right? What else did they teach you? About our COUNTRY… our flag.

“… with Liberty and Justice for ALL.”

IDK about you, but I BELIEVED it… hook, line, and sinker! And the most AMAZING part is… we ALL did. Every one of us. And we continue to do so because we see it, ALIVE before our very eyes! And no one doubts for one second, when push comes to shove, black or white, Americans help Americans, through hell AND high water!

So it’s not that much of a stretch. All we have to do is redefine who we accept as “on our team”. People who we don’t normally socialize with or, in the past, people who seemed so socially different than ourselves, that we believed THEM to be a threat to OUR prosperity… because NOW we recognize. The threats to Our Liberty do not come from within, they originate from without. Shadowy organizations and individuals who operate within secret societies, and have secret codes, secret handshakes and secret pledges.¬†Well… WE have a similar system, only ours is NO SECRET!! Our organization has a code- Equal Justice Under Law. And our society has a pledge- Liberty and Justice for ALL. And our handshake is always offered for ANYONE who STANDS in defense of the Liberty of OTHERS!

We MUST reaffirm that pledge, because there are many who stand waiting… wanting us to fail. The ones who profit at the expense of others. Who only hold power when people are SILENT. People who deceive with half-truths… IF they deal in the TRUTH at all! And they turn a blind eye to suffering, because they believe it is in THEIR best interest to be SILENT.

That is NOT the America I know!

As I plumb the depths of my soul, I sit, alone, considering all the stress I am creating, for my wife, for my kids, for myself, I search for context. A measuring stick to gauge how far I should go… I cry as I realize there is NO amount of pain I could suffer, unto myself or any other, that could come close to what has become of a JOURNALIST at the hands of Saudi henchmen. Or his fianc√©e who continues to grieve.

And DAILY, due to the arrogance AND ignorance of Donald Trump, thousands of families will now bear scars unimaginable to some, unforgettable to others.

And NONE OF US can complain, for OURS is bliss and heaven, compaired to the fate that befell three thousand innocent lives on the morning of September Eleventh…

…where 15 of 19 were Saudi born.

image

… And now we’ve come full circle.

Now we STAND, face to face, Living with the Dead. We championed the policy of vengeance and paid for its implementation with our lives. We said “Never Forget!”, sailed off to War, and forgot where we were supposed to be fighting. We said “Wanted: Dead or Alive!” and then let the man live in hiding for damn near a decade.

To seek Justice, to HONOR the lives lost nearly twenty years ago, we have sacrificed over seven thousand American Troops, and over fifty thousand have been wounded… and we STILL fight today while Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein are dead. BOTH men killed in countries that were NOT the target of our vengeance. And, even IF we focus on the intended, original target… we are STILL NOT FOCUSING on the problem-

15 of 19 were from yet ANOTHER COUNTRY: Saudi Arabia.

Where we have gone astray, I do not know. I can speculate, so can everyone else. But that is all we can do… speculate. There are reasons for secrecy. Classified Intel exists to secure our Liberty and keep our country safe, as it should be. But given the lack of clarity seen in the planning of the mission, and the unending nature of this military endeavor, once stifled questions must be raised and TRUTH must be found.

Our inability to deal with the reality of the situation has led us to a place where people with “good intentions” ignore crucial facts, because finding the truth can run counter to FUNDING the investigators… and investigations could lead to de-railing the fight itself… remember- “Never Forget!”¬©‚ĄĘ¬ģ

Let us seek the answers together, not to punish… but to PERFECT. To enlighten, not imprison. To find understanding and end future ignorance.

I believe there is a BETTER WAY, and it involves a lot less dying…

everyone.together

Individual Responsibility

I hope I have been “honorable”. At some point, on my Twitter feed, my name will have a banner that reads “2020 US Presidential Candidate”, and then WORDS… from MY mouth! I’ve said almost 6,000 things on Twitter. I hope I have not said anything that degrades the Office I seek.

Stephen Douglas… everyone knows that name today for ONE reason- Abraham Lincoln. I realized that a couple months ago. And it is a thought that crosses my mind daily. I try, intentionally, to be OPEN with my thoughts and opinions in order to avoid coming across as ‘fake’ or ‘a troll’. As if I were speaking in real life.

IF I do self censor it is because of the platform from which I speak, knowing what I say might someday be seen as “relevant”.

A couple days ago I made a late night run to Walmart. Jess was making potato soup and needed almond milk and I needed to replace a headlight on the van. I was looking for a good reason to get out of the house, to try and take my mind off stuff.

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately.

I tossed my items in a cart, shot the breeze with a couple people while I was there, paid and headed out the door. Just as I was pushing my cart through the automatic double-doors, out of the corner of my eye to my right, a woman was throwing some trash into the can. As I walked out, she was just about to turn and start walking back to where she came from, and I anticipated…swinging my cart to the left and avoiding her walking into my cart.

She turned, just as I thought, and she saw me swing the cart to the side and stop. Now, I wasn’t going to hit her with a cart… I’m a better driver than THAT! And, even if she suddenly turned and started sprinting, I wasn’t going fast enough to where I couldn’t have just full-stopped and avoided her. I just wanted to be safe.

As we both came to a stop, I pulled the cart back slightly, and said “Excuse me. Please, go ahead.” As I said this, she turned her eyes away from the cart and made eye contact with me… Now, I am not an unpleasant looking guy. Some people might say a little more pleasant than the south side of a north bound horse, and so I’ve seen that sparkle in the eye of a few people… ladies AND gents… and sometimes, flirtatious looks can turn into a bit of flirtatious banter, all in a few seconds. Just in passing alone and nothing more.

As she looked up, startled at first from the image of some guy dodging to avoid running her over, she made eye contact with me and her expression changed. I said “Please, go ahead,” and she stepped back, stood a bit straighter, and said “No… Please, you go. I insist.” I¬†hesitated, smiled, being flattered by her expression of insistence, nodded my head and said “Thank you,” and I walked on by.

It makes me feel good when someone slyly acknowledges someone else in that way, makes you feel kinda special… but, as I approached my van, I thought a couple more times about that look in her eye. That was NOT the look of infatuation. I am NOT that handsome! No Way!… I think she recognized me. Well, the spongebob hat at least.

If I had to guess her age, I would say 16-22. That is about the range for the MFOL crowd and I know there is strong support in the Kansas City area for what David Hogg is doing. So it could be possible. And IF that is the case… I don’t believe it! I don’t have proof of that being the case, I would only be assuming. I’m not sure though.

The look in her eyes expressed a sence of HUMILITY, of AWE, of PRIDE… of what I would express if given the chance to meet a Presidential Candidate.

So, that’s a heavy responsibility. I understood that from the beginning. That COPYRIGHT/TRADEMARK “U.S. President” idea is what gave me pause originally. How can one live up to the painting that hangs in the heart of every American Citizen? Be it a portrait of a President or a pivotal patriotic event, the IMAGE in one’s own mind is flawless, even more so than the painting itself. I felt the responsibility of the Office when I changed my Twitter bio. Little blue check mark be damned… just read the title at the top of that feed, it is a statement.

I am not shying away in this moment, I am absorbing and learning (with cat videos and funny goats in between to keep my sanity…) and planning. Mapping out what could be, how to get there, and hoping to find disparate voices, looking for common ground. Wise counsel who, watching the deprevaty in the halls of Congress, have come to their breaking point.

A rag-tag group of misfits, from a diverse range of backgrounds. All with individual specialties that can be utilized at the most opportune time against an evil villain… hell-bent on destruction…

Cue- Cliche 70s Rock Anthem

I think we can move “Through the Looking Glass” over to the Reference section now.

Into the Great Wide Open

We STAND at an extraordinary time! With SO many things fueling the passions of debate, and solutions needed so desperately but seeming so distant…

Consider the sacrifice our Founding Fathers had to make. In order to achieve Independence, to establish the Constitution, sacrifice and compromise was the only way. ¬†And in THAT spirit they made their choice, their sacrifice, because they knew in their hearts… at their CORE, Mankind is ‘good’ and will find the way.

They sacrificed themselves. To achieve unanimity they sacrificed their “idealistic purity” to have the CHANCE for it to occur. Their opinion was in the minority then. The MAJORITY opinion in the late 18th Century, on this continent, was only CERTAIN MEN are created equal.

… but in their hearts the KNEW that WORDS MATTER. That IF it could stand the test of time, and survive the slowly waning majority opinion, someday the WORDS would be read and their TRUE MEANING would be recognized as LAW. So they were SILENT, sacrificing themselves, and allowed slavery in a system where ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL.

That price, paid in BLOOD, over FOUR CENTURIES, has inspired great movement. When measured as a whole, it looks like the end is within reach! We can ALMOST blow up the BALLOONS and light the CANDLES… and that has led to complacentcy. It has led to “perceived weakness”. It is seen as an opportunity, and now HERE we stand.

So… They were SILENT, sacrificing themselves, listening to WISE COUNSEL at home, saying ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL while OPPRESSING the voice of their domestic PARTNERS?

200 years ago, when the people who held the opinion that slavery was wrong were in the minority, the people who then believed WOMEN deserved EQUAL RIGHTS was EVEN SMALLER… and BOTH opinions were strongly SILENCED. I have learned, the POWER over others, alone, can be an intoxicant, and that “addiction” is a disturbing topic. Many of these “ills” are a matter of Learned Behavior. “THIS is the way it has been, so THIS is the way it is done– No questions!”

ALWAYS ASK QUESTIONS. KNOWLEDGE will keep us ALL FREE.

Today, as we fight about accusations of Criminal Behavior, ask yourself “What does the LAW say?” EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW.

I am EXCITED! Because right NOW, we have within our reach, the TOOLS to make this HAPPEN. It has been subverted and disguised. Made to look foolish and idealistic… that it could never happen. “There’s just NO support, so you should stay SILENT. No one would believe you anyway.” IF ONLY we had LAW that could guide us to an answer… What would the Founding Fathers say?

ALL MANKIND IS CREATED EQUAL

The Bill of Rights ensured that ONE DAY, if the country could survive long enough, the MEANING of the WORDS would, once again, be recognized. That mistakes made in THEIR TIME, could be AMENDED, and in time, they knew, their ideological vision had ALREADY WON.

We must memorialize their efforts by demanding LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
