Looking to the Inside

Are You Finally Ready To Trust Your Conscience?

Most politicians are not bad people, but the system has a way of chewing them up and spitting them out. Once in the system, they learn to play the game and almost always compromise their integrity when it can be justified and even sometimes when it cannot. This is done while we look the other way if it’s “our guy” and/or they give us something we want. That’s the insidiousness of democracy and these “representatives” continue to do anything to stay in power.

Many of the problems that we face today can mostly be chalked up to our divisions fueled by our two beloved major parties. While we’re fighting each other and pinning down scapegoats, the hotshot politicians are laughing all the way to the bank (you know…Citi, Goldman, so on and so forth).

I don’t believe citizens who still identify themselves as Republicans and Democrats are happy with the destination that either of our parties is taking us; they simply don’t know how to address mess they find themselves in. My gut tells me that the majority my fellow citizens want a representative to rely on defined accountability, common sense, and a set of principles that value the unalienable rights and responsibilities of the individual.

Liars, Thieves, Kidnappers, and Murderers

No, I am not referring to some mafia family, I am referring to your federal government. There are a lot of similarities between between those in charge in Washington DC, compared with the worst mafias in history.

There are several enterprises that any mafia partakes in; drug trafficking, arms trafficking, loan sharking, control of contracting, and protection/extortion rackets. Sadly, there is not a single criminal activity that the federal government does not partake in.

For starters, there is the protection/extortion racket with the IRS.  Someone needs to pay for the empire to fight all these wars to protect, what they call democracy and freedom (they really mean fascism). You should be grateful to have been hand selected at birth to give up half your paycheck when you come of age. Just don’t opt out of their protection services or they will come look for you, and possibly kidnap you.

Three Crimes, and Three Crimes Only

The Constitution specifies only three federal crimes-treason, piracy, and counterfeiting. So whether you think performing OR preventing an abortion is a crime – it’s still something that the federal government is not authorized to deal with. State Constitutions in California, Connecticut and elsewhere have a greater protection for the ability to have an abortion than…

Popular Obamacare Analogies

Obama supporters come in all shapes and sizes, but none more socially powerful than the iconic Oprah Winfrey.  Last week Oprah did a segment on Denmark, perhaps in a bid to pump up support for Obamacare.
