Be Prepared

Tonight my heart aches because of the Coronavirus. Not because I have it, and not because I am one of those “at-risk individuals with an underlying condition like diabetes.” I hang my head tonight because of the shadows cast by this Administration, the ones that have lurked behind them all along.

I didn’t decide to run for President because it seemed like a fun thing to DO… I was worried that something of this magnitude could someday happen.

 

While I sincerely hope that this is not that event, it is apparent that preparedness is not the strong suit of our Commander-in-Chief. His ‘King of the Hill’ leadership style may have served him well in the world of real estate, but it’s now obvious that that management style does NOT work well as a governing philosophy… something that every American Citizen should have already known… it’s IN our Founding Documents!

 

An incoming President has 4000 jobs to fill before DAY ONE.

 

FOUR THOUSAND… advisors, secretaries, officials, specialists, doctors, scientists, nurses, historians, technicians, Cabinet Members, and Diplomats… and SO MANY more that my ADVISORS will have to inform me that I’ve forgotten them. THAT is the only way things get done! A collection of the BEST and BRIGHTEST with the VISION to see what needs to be done BEFORE a situation arises, BEFORE drastic and costly decisions must be made.

In times of crisis a true leader doesn’t make the life-saving decisions… the people he put in place before the crisis began do. They are a direct reflection of the values held by that leader… whether he be corrupt or a saint.

 

The Career Public Servants of the United States of America are NOT a burden on our pocketbooks, they are our INSURANCE POLICY against losses caused by catastrophic disasters. The bean counters, pencil-pushers, organizers and planners… LOGISTICS! How do we get the test kits to Walnut Shade, MO? How do we prepare for an escalation BEFORE it happens? Being prepared means we set up pre-determined locations with supplies… inventoried, stockpiled, and ready to GO. And all of it has to be maintained… by GOVERNMENT WORKERS.

 

It’s the DEEP STATE!

 

A forklift driver named Joe… who’s in-charge of rotating stock in our warehouses, filled with MREs and BOTTLED WATER.

 

Now, due to a CUTTING of the size of our government, many of these responsibilities are farmed out. Contracted to CORRUPT companies who are just looking to take advantage of the TAX PAYERS. Corrupt legislators… who are FIRST and foremost, corrupt POLITICIANS… rewarding their DONORS with multi-million dollar contracts, so they can secure FUNDING for their reelection.

“Puerto Rico Power just hired 2 contractors with little experience…” Vox (10-26-2017)

 

In the LAND OF PLENTY, where it falls off the tree and ROTS on the ground… people in Puerto Rico couldn’t get WATER after a storm.

 

 

 

Screenshot (118)

Screenshot (119)

“20,000 Pallets of bottled water left untouched…” CNN (09-20-2018)

 

Like that storm, experts could see from its earliest days that the potential for loss of life could be HIGH… and this Administration just continues to make it up as they go along. Changing weather maps to make it seem alright. ‘Don’t worry! He knows what he’s doing… why? Do you think he DOESN’T know what he’s doing?’  And now, his downplaying of the severity of potential disasters will cause more unnecessary loss of LIFE.

 

Even IF he did know everything, he wouldn’t be able to do it all by himself. Roosevelt didn’t take out Hitler alone… he couldn’t have. Imagine if Truman would have come into office with the goal of eliminating the DEEP STATE on his first day…

‘All of this GOVERNMENT WASTE! Going toward some covert military project… in Manhattan?! That’s gotta GO!’

 

Our LIVES are now in the hands of a President, in-office only because of LIES and DECEPTION, and elected by a MINORITY of the electorate. Our collective fate is being determined by a man who values HIS self-interest over that of everyone else.

 

When I say #EndTheElectoralCollege, I don’t simply say it to get under his skin (and it obviously DOES!), I say it as a call for STABILITY. A reinstatement of the ideals we have ALL come to cherish. Though the actions of our Presidents have been at times misguided, they have always been carried out with one goal in mind- SECURING this nation. Every action taken by Donald J. Trump as President of the United States, has served the interests of ONE MAN…

 

Now that man will be Russia’s President for the REST OF HIS LIFE, and he will continue to influence our geopolitical sphere for MANY years to come.

 

 

2016 was not the FIRST time… it certainly won’t be the LAST.

To stand SILENT and watch her FALL, makes you COMPLICIT in her demise.

We must End the Electoral College.

#2. Our Right to Bear Arms

Every Now and Again

 

When you strip away all the nonsense, and get to the point of it all… I believe we’re NOT as far apart as it might seem. Or rather, as divided as they would WANT us to believe…

 

I find it disturbing to see Americans openly carry Arms in peaceful protest against gun safety laws, especially at events organized by PARENTS who have lost CHILDREN due to gun violence. Those parents are not the problem, and intimidating grieving parents and school children to exercise your Constitutional Rights does not help SOLVE this problem.

I also find it disturbing to see public support has GROWN for ending our Right to Bear Arms. But at this moment, considering the inaction of our elected officials, can you blame them? In the eyes of many, when you weight the costs vs. the benefits… how many lives have been SAVED because of our Second Amendment?

 

Right now, those parents only have PROOF of the lives that were NOT.

 

In this Modern Era of Digital Entanglement, of KNOWLEDGE gaining ground over FEAR and OPPRESSION, I began to question if it were even possible for another country to successfully mount an invasion of the United States. Consider the international outrage that would come before a single shot had been fired, or landing craft deployed.

In the YEARS following the school shooting at Sandy Hook, I found myself questioning if we should. The inaction of legislators had put me in such a negative state of mind, every time I saw the flag flying at half-mast due to ANOTHER mass shooting, I would ask, “WHY? Does it even MATTER?” We all knew the inevitable routine:

Thoughts and prayers… not while emotions are still raw… the Right to Bear Arms shall NOT be infringed.

Speaker Ryan had it down to a science.

 

 

… but that was BEFORE 2016.

 

That was BEFORE the Active Measures Campaign was carried out by the Russian Government in our elections. And now, we see the seeds that were sown in the years preceding the Second World War… being planted again TODAY.

It seems that every now and again, we need a little reminder of how important our Right to Bear Arms truly is, and how convenient it would be for a foreign adversary to impose THEIR will upon us… if only we were all UNARMED.

 

 

 

But as I said, I do not believe we are that far apart! We have to strip it down and simplify it to find the answer. WE MUST! There are eyes upon us RIGHT NOW watching, waiting… wanting us to FAIL. Stoking our emotions around an already emotional subject, creating a divisive narrative that pits our Health and Safety AGAINST our National Security.

That is a losing strategy.

 

Any laws or legislation we decide to enact must PAIR our Health and Safety WITH our National Security, as both are necessary if our Union is to survive.

Any requirements we enact beyond those of license, registration, and insurance, must not serve to create a financial burden for gun ownership; but MONEY should not decide what is or is not in our best interests.

Any punishments or preventative measures deemed necessary by the courts to prevent imminent harm, must have a CLEARLY DEFINED PATH for the Restoration of Rights; but we must accept that some crimes are worthy of losing the Right to Bear Arms.

A ‘three strikes’ policy is unacceptable when LIVES are lost or PERSONAL SANCTITY is VIOLATED by force. The Right to Bear Arms should not violate my Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. It should SECURE these Rights for EVERYONE… equally.

 

 

I was raised to believe that our Right to Bear Arms is a vital piece of securing our nation against an attack from a hostile foreign adversary… this article seems to call that conclusion into question.

How the NRA Rewrote The Second Amendment (05-20-2014)

(Quotes are from the article above)

 

“From 1888, when law review articles first were indexed, through 1959, every single one on the Second Amendment concluded it did not guarantee an individual right to a gun. The first to argue otherwise, written by a William and Mary law student named Stuart R. Hays, appeared in 1960. He began by citing an article in the NRA’s American Rifleman magazine and argued that the amendment enforced a “right of revolution,” of which the Southern states availed themselves during what the author called “The War Between the States.”

 

“At first, only a few articles echoed that view. Then, starting in the late 1970s, a squad of attorneys and professors began to churn out law review submissions, dozens of them, at a prodigious rate. Funds—much of them from the NRA—flowed freely. An essay contest, grants to write book reviews, the creation of “Academics for the Second Amendment,” all followed. In 2003, the NRA Foundation provided $1 million to endow the Patrick Henry professorship in constitutional law and the Second Amendment at George Mason University Law School.

This fusillade of scholarship and pseudo-scholarship insisted that the traditional view—shared by courts and historians—was wrong. There had been a colossal constitutional mistake. Two centuries of legal consensus, they argued, must be overturned.”

 

The National Rifle Association’s long crusade to bring its interpretation of the Constitution into the mainstream teaches… Constitutional change is the product of public argument and political maneuvering.

 

 

Minute Men, carrying long rifles and charging into battle against the Red Coats… that is the image of Patriotism that springs to my mind when I think of our Right to Bear Arms. Well trained militias… CITIZENS, defending our Country against those who seek to undo what has been created.

These militias were the product of a world of civic duty and governmental compulsion utterly alien to us today. Every white man age 16 to 60 was enrolled. He was actually required to own—and bring—a musket or other military weapon.

This idea is not alien to the brave men and women who have served this nation in uniform, or the families they were brought up in. It is not alien to the communities across the nation that SUPPORT the families of service members as they serve their country abroad. Nor is it alien in a city like Leavenworth, KS, where military life and civilian life co-exist daily.

 

In 1959, according to a Gallup poll, 60 percent of Americans favored banning handguns; that dropped to 41 percent by 1975 and 24 percent in 2012. By early 2008, according to Gallup, 73 percent of Americans believed the Second Amendment “guaranteed the rights of Americans to own guns” outside the militia.

 

Any observant person will note that I’ve omitted something. Our Right to Bear Arms serves to protect us from ALL enemies… both foreign and domestic. Some would say they fear an overreaching Federal Government, and our Founders did bear witness to the abuses that come from a tyrannical leader. Our Rule of Law is structured in such a way that it makes it almost impossible for our military to be deployed on OUR CITY STREETS. The checks and balances of our Legislatures and Judicial Branch, makes it almost impossible to target CITIZENS en masse and seize their property or incarcerate them on trumped-up charges.

During the first year of the Trump Administration, we were sailing adrift at sea. Still unable to fully understand how government WORKED, he was flailing about, unable to make any real changes happen. FAST-FORWARD two more years and now he’s learned how to take people out by DRONE…

What happens in FOUR MORE YEARS.

 

Before 2016, I would have said that it’s IMPOSSIBLE for our government to be used in such a way… Before 2016, I did not KNOW how easy it was to manipulate it. The perception of THE PEOPLE, the manipulation of the LEGISLATORS, the manipulation of the JUDGES… all secured by those who can AFFORD IT… $$$.

 

There was the ringing declaration from Patrick Henry: “The great object is, that every man be armed.”

The quote has been plucked from Henry’s speech at Virginia’s ratifying convention for the Constitution in 1788. But if you look at the full text, he was complaining about the cost of both the federal government and the state arming the militia. (“The great object is, that every man be armed,” he said. “At a very great cost, we shall be doubly armed.”) In other words: Sure, let every man be armed, but only once! Far from a ringing statement of individual gun-toting freedom,

It was an early American example of a local politician complaining about government waste.”

 

 

 

AT THIS MOMENT, we are all being manipulated… the left AND the right. VAST amounts of MONEY have been spent over DECADES to shape public opinion, prey on our FEARS, and motivate us to SPEND MONEY. In order to make us VOTE a certain way. To make us believe that our enemy is our NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR, and since the Federal Government is horribly mismanaged and unable to protect us… we should BUY MORE GUNS.

Our enemy THRIVES when we are fighting amongst OURSELVES, and not focused on the legislators who run successful campaigns CORRUPTED by DARK MONEY. Funded by SuperPACs. Political organizations that are funded by wealthy individuals, who have profited from the sale of MORE GUNS and NO REGULATIONS.

Safety is EXPENSIVE! and it chips away at the BOTTOM LINE. In the eyes of a gun manufacturer, it’s better for business to spend a few MILLION DOLLARS on a handful of political campaigns, than it would be to spend HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS on new technology and manufacturing equipment to make their products SAFER.

 

Our enemy in this fight is not the government, it’s the CORRUPT influence of MONEY on legislators within our government.

 

 

 

US Department of State- Foreign Service employees: 13,000
Civil Service employees: 11,000
Local employees: 45,000

US DOJ- Number of employees: 113,114

US Armed Forces- Active personnel: 1,380,895
Reserve personnel: 845,600
Deployed personnel: 210,000

CIA- Number of employees: 21,575 (estimate)

 

Who FILLS these posts? Who is appointed to LEAD them? Who carries out the WORK and shoulders the burden each and every day… we do, THE PEOPLE. Administrations come, and Administrations go, meanwhile the agenda of The United States carries on.

 

Though ill-informed it may be, it is now the opinion of the MAJORITY of this nation that our Right to Bear Arms is for EVERYONE and shall not be infringed. If we are to continue to support this Originalist Interpretation, we must RESURRECT the full intent of the Law.

We must demand personal responsibility on a level equal to that required of our Service Members. ANNUAL proficiency and safety evaluations; license and insurance requirements for all gun owners; title and registration for all legally purchased guns; and yearly mental health evaluations, conducted by a mental health professional, for all gun owners, paid for by the United States Government. We should not straddle working class families with more financial burdens, but no price should be seen as to high when it comes to preventing loss of LIFE.

 

Being in the interest of the Nation as a whole, these mental health evaluations must happen. We must ensure that they DO. IF every man be ARMED, then we will make SURE they are MENTALLY STABLE as well.

 

If not for OURSELVES… then for our CHILDREN.

We All Know What the Problem IS

MONEY. Spent by someone, in SUPPORT of a particular cause or a political candidate.

MONEY. Spent by someone, to work AGAINST an opposing political candidate or to support an opposing ideology.

MONEY. Spent by someone, in SUPPORT of a cause that stands antithetical to their OWN core ideals, simply because that group stands opposed to another candidate.

MONEY. Spent by someone, in support of BOTH CANDIDATES in order to establish influence with elected officials… no matter who wins an election.

Whether it’s in the SUNLIGHT or through DARK MONEY methods, the result is the SAME- legislators legislate based on MONEY, and the pursuit there of. Of course it would eventually lead to SELF-ENRICHMENT over the wellbeing of the NATION.

We are ALL BUT MEN, susceptible to fallacy and vice.

In a system based on HONOR, it was only a matter of TIME.

 

 

Without the financial support of the NRA, how many candidates over the course of the last 30 YEARS would NOT have been able to run for elected office? How many SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES would have LOST without that support?

A generational POWERHOUSE like the NRA falls due to the same vice, the same corrupt motives seen countless times before. Now, the recklessness of individuals at the TOP of that organization have put our LIVES in jeopardy by prioritizing MONEY over SAFETY. In order to strengthen their position, they’ve worked to create a false equivalence between SAFETY and DISARMAMENT, between our Constitutional Right and financial support for a NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.

 

Talk about effective marketing. How much MONEY did that cost?

 

 

 

MONEY shapes the conversation. MONEY decides who is INCLUDED IN that conversation. MONEY INFORMS you that there’s a conversation to be had on the subject in the FIRST PLACE…

MONEY is spent everyday to make sure you don’t realize that conversation even EXISTS.

Speaking on the issues of Equal Rights for Women in September 2010, Justice Scalia said: “Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t.”

 

Maybe it was truly believed at some time in the past, that the protection of women should be SOLELY the responsibility of men and that women were better off NOT having to worry about taking care of themselves. One could… theoretically… construct a legal argument that would rationalize the SEPARATE STATUS of HALF of the population.

BUT… is there ANY DOUBT as to the question of EQUALITY? The only argument against Equal Rights for Women that passes as SUFFICIENT is, “They ALREADY have it.”

Well, it seems we’re ALL in agreement then… they SHOULD HAVE IT.

Yet they STILL do not.

 

WHY.

 

Imagine if HALF of the United States Senate was NOT given EQUAL STANDING. It might have been easier to pass the Affordable Care Act! It might have been easier to SHUT IT DOWN.

The effect of denying Equality to HALF of the population is- it allows the continuation of agendas that are not in the interest of THE PEOPLE, but they ARE in the interest of people and organizations that would stand to LOSE MONEY if the Constitution suddenly demanded Women must have EQUAL PAY.

MONEY should not define our Legislative Moral Agendas. MONEY should not be the deciding factor in whether someone is WORTHY of Equal Justice Under Law. From the HIGHEST COURT to the local Circuit Court. From CORRUPTION to POSSESSION…

 

… with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL.

 

Not just for SOME or a SELECT FEW. If we BELIEVE it is SO, then we should MAKE IT SO!

If MONEY decides who can have ACCESS to POWER, then controlling who can have ACCESS to the MONEY makes it easier RETAIN POWER by RE-DEFINING the electorate. People who are able to make more MONEY will be able to live in… certain areas where property values are HIGHER. And those who cannot will live in… OTHER locations.

Some locations PRE-DETERMINED, in order to assist lower-income families. Locations that exist within or near ALREADY existing, lower-income neighborhoods. Now, add the ability possessed by legislators to RE-DRAW their OWN DISTRICT LINES every 10 YEARS, and we can see where the problem LIES.

 

Change the district, change the vote totals… change the representation.

Change the AGENDA.

Change the NARRATIVE, CONTROL the conversation.

 

When you consider the HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars made by interests like the pharmaceutical industry or oil and gas companies, and compare that to the MINISCULE investment of TENS of MILLIONS of dollars in a handful of political races, there’s no FINANCIAL RATIONAL for these entities to support causes like Equal Rights for Women, or a $15 minimum wage, or mandating employers provide heath insurance coverage for their employees, or mandating prisons pay the added expense of providing feminine hygiene products to female prisoners.

For the de minimis price of a few campaign contributions, companies can continue to charge $1000 for insulin, while insurance companies are able to deny coverage due to the very pre-existing condition that created the need for that insulin in the first place.

I’m not saying anything NEW, we ALL have eyes to see… but all we have are “If’s and But’s”. We’ve been SOLD the idea that THIS is the way it MUST BE… by the SAME PEOPLE who run for office on our hopes for CHANGE, over, and over again every 2 to 4 years.

“THIS TIME will be different… Just send me BACK for another term!”

“… can we count on YOU for a CONTRIBUTION?”

 

We have MAJORITIES on many issues, and legislation DOES NOT MOVE.

WHY.

 

The MAJORITY of the MAJORITY decides the Legislative Agenda. It doesn’t matter the OVERALL number of Senators who support legislation, if a MAJORITY of leaders in the CONTROLLING PARTY do not approve, the legislation does NOT GET A VOTE.

THE MINORITY decides the agenda for the MAJORITY.

And those leaders are there because they are the BEST FUNDRAISERS, able to secure re-election over multiple terms, having raised HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of dollars for their political organization, and their POLITICAL PARTY. And, of course… it’s all TAX EXEMPT.

 

 

I’m not seeking the Presidency for recognition. I’m not doing this as a way to prove something. I’m doing this because… I found the ANSWER. I figured it out. I SOLVED the problem!

I decided to TRY, to answer the question that no one seems to have been able to properly address. And now, knowing that it CAN BE DONE… I see it as MY DUTY to do everything I can to bring it to the attention of every American Citizen.

To be SILENT at this moment would be nothing short of SURRENDER.

The problem within our rule of law is CLEAR to anyone who knows ANYTHING about our government- The problem is the CORRUPTION. Any system that allows the influence of MONEY to determine who will be allowed to legislate for the rest of us, will inevitably favor those with MONEY over those without.

The Framers were RIGHT… this IS an “experiment”. When our Nation’s existence is viewed in-total, as a set of FACTS and DATA, conclusions can be reached. Recommendations can be made.

Our strength and security is ensured when EVERY CITIZEN is guaranteed access to the ballot. Any system that LIMITS access or attempts to correct, distort, or interpret the WILL of the people, is inherently susceptible to corruption.

 

ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE. EVERY CITIZEN. EVERY ELECTION.

 

To remove the corruption from our system, we must have 100% TAX PAYER FUNDED Federal Elections. Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.

Our intellectual debates are decided, not by VOTES, but by who can raise the most MONEY. Who can excite the DONORS? Then, LATER, re-brand or move toward the middle for the general election.

A 20th Century Strategy, employed within an 18th Century electoral system, now being manipulated by 21st Century technology… Where will it go from HERE?

 

“It is their Right, it is their DUTY, to throw off such government, and provide NEW GUARDS for their future Security.”

 

We celebrate our Constitution, not simply because it is OURS. We celebrate our Constitution because it is a document WORTHY of our CELEBRATION!

A document unlike any other that came before it, embodying a genius so profound it has become the STANDARD to which we compare ALL OTHERS that have followed it.

We now have what the Founders did NOT… we have the DATA. We must celebrate because the “Experiment” shows- they were right!

Today, we STAND as PROOF.

 

We must End the Electoral College.
