Controlling the power brokers

31 Mar

We began by encouraging people to vote in all elections paid for by our government.  This will solve a lot of problems with the leadership of our country.  We could then clean up the mudslinging in the election to require that in order to get the money every statement made by the candidates about their opponent have to be backed up by facts available immediately to the public within 24 hours of the statement.  If it is proven to be untrue the candidate forfeits the government’s support and must decline to campaign or accept the nomination of their party or office for which they have been elected. 

 

Campaign reform must be strict.  It can’t be sort of campaign reform.  It must mean something, and be enforceable. As a result we will save probably billions of dollars a year for waste spent by our government on projects that are, today, literally bought and bargained for by private enterprise who own our legislators.

 

There is a strong movement in the Republican Party to make it harder to vote in the United States.  Redistricting helps the Republicans, Libertarians, and Tea Party candidates by picking out areas of the country or states that tend to vote for them, but the real danger is making it easy for a person to just say, “It is not worth it.  My vote doesn’t make a difference anyway.” 

 

The Republicans, Libertarians, and Tea Party members are a small voting bloc of the United States.  Their membership in the legislative system of around 50% of the electorates is maintained because 50% of the nation either cannot vote for some reason or the other or feel their vote doesn’t count.

 

Every person in the United States that does not vote is voting for the minorities of the country.  By not voting they helped elect every good and bad president, governor, vice governor, congressman, senator, mayor, school board member, sheriff, and any other reprehensive of in the federal government and state and local government in these United States.

 

Some may feel that they don’t know enough about running the government to cast an intelligent vote.  My friends that is the reason we are not a democracy.  We are republic.  In a republic we elect people that have a better background or training to do the job.  A democracy like the Greeks formed hundreds of years ago didn’t work because everyone is not up to the task of making government decisions.  Unfortunately we have too many people in our present government who are not up to the task of making government decisions either.

 

These statements above bring us back to the point of campaign reform.  The people we put in office must not be candidates supported by special interest individuals, partnerships, or corporations protecting themselves by throwing money at the problems they face stopping legislative reform.  The Koch Brothers with their billions of dollars have bought many votes not because they want to help candidates individually, but because keeping representatives that support their cause in government makes the Koch brothers more billions of dollars.

 

I don’t want to pick on the Koch brothers.  I bring them up only because they are mentioned a lot in the media. There are thousands of individuals, partnerships, and corporations that are doing exactly the same thing.  This activity must to be stopped.  I don’t mean slowed down or controlled.  We must begin the think about this problem and stop it.

 

Are you willing to come on board and become part of the solution instead of part of the problem?  Simply registering to vote can be your answer.  You don’t have to know how to fix our government.  You just have to listen enough to the candidates to determine of the candidates running which one do you think can represent your best interest.

 

God Bless America

 

“Where do these injustices originate?”

29 Mar

We begin this injustice blog series by asking the question, “Where do these injustices originate?”

 

The first question inspires a second question, “Where do these injustices begin?”

 

First they are the result of laws either made or not make by the politicians.  The injustices or justice of these laws are reflected by the justice system of laws and courts, but they are determined most of the time by the legislature and then tested in the courts. 

 

We basically have a two party system of legislation with sub parties within each one in this country.  We have the Democrats who tend to be more liberal toward social justice; within the Democratic party we have the independents who usually don’t agree with excessive non regulated spending; the Republicans who tend to be more conservative tending toward free ungoverned business; within the Republican party we have Libertarians who would just as soon have no government at all; and also within Republican Party we have the Tea Party who should not be in either party because they tend to be more Theocratic than Democratic.  When one combines the Libertarian and Tea Party together neither party supports the constitution of the United States and the Amendments thereto.  

 

Any time an extreme position begins to take root and controls the people away from the basic beliefs of the people and for the people.  The people eventually overthrow that government, or by some means bring it back to the reality of protecting the public and their basic rights. Throughout the process of uncovering injustice and the causes and cures, we will take them one at a time, and try to make some sense of the problems and cures.

 

What is the solution?

 

The answer is VOTE.  Around 50% (on a good day) of the people eligible to vote, actually vote.

 

This means 24 or 25% of the voters actually control the elections. 

 

The way Barack Obama was elected was that he had the basic democratic vote plus the Black and Hispanic vote.  He was very careful to orchestrate a system that would get him elected two separate times.  I am not saying that he should not have been elected, but his win did not necessarily reflect the will of the people, because half the nation that should have voted, didn’t vote at all. 

 

Here is an interesting thought.  There are more people that understand that we have to pay taxes in order to live in this wonderful country than there are people that don’t want to pay taxes.  These large corporations and very rich citizens that don’t want to pay their fair share of taxes DON’T WANT YOU TO VOTE.

 

The political clowns that stay in office on Capitol Hill are there because they are not run out of town by the voters.  We put these people in power to do a job.  They have proven beyond a doubt that they are not capable of performing the duties of the job for which they were hired.

 

We will talk about the way they use the media to stay in power.  This is a very complicated system they are running and blocking movement forward.  It cannot be explained in a few sound bites in the newspapers, television, and certainly not be the radio talk shows.

 

Stay tuned – we will cover more.  In the mean time go register to VOTE.

It is time to fight injustice

28 Mar

Good morning, it is the 28th of March in the year of our Lord 2014. I decided and posted on Twitter that I was going to just try to work for the rest of my life trying to repair or at least bring to light the injustice constantly happening in these great United States of America. 

 

I hope to soon have the funds to begin to back my conviction which will allow me to hire a staff to help me accomplish my mission. 

 

I bought dinars and by God’s grace I will have more money than normal.  The thing about that is many people will have more money than they normally have.  If we could form a group where many people could contribute a small amount of their newly found wealth, we could form a corporation that would back such a venture.  If we could then find a CEO with his heart and head in the right place, this could be much better than just my opinions and actions.

 

My belief is that God personally engineered the formation of this country and, through a prayerful group of men, wrote the constitution.  He said through them that we could not sponsor any religion by the government.  It had to be the choice of the people.  That is the way the Christian religion is.  You have to choose to be a Christian.  He is there knocking, but you have to open the door.

 

I ask God to bless these United States and to keep them under his care by the choice of we the people.  One of the people in our situation formed this hash tag, #wearethepeople to emphasize his point.
