We the People!!

This is not a political statement but rather an observation and an opinion into the state of affairs of governance. Government will not cater, fully, to their constituency for one reason or another due to “we the people” lack of knowledge and complacency. We have forgotten that we are the ones hiring the “managers” of our corporation, the U.S.; we are the shareholders, board members, recruiters and retainers of this organization. As of late, however, we have done a bang up job of managing our company. I believe that we all should be adamant about our rights and never trade them for some cheap tricks of the government and its evangelists. We should petition and make into law a second bill of rights that “we the people” deem adequate for the wellbeing of all. FDR enumerated what the second bill of rights should be when he said:

“We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. Necessitous men are not free men. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. “(Democratic Underground)

it is said that in our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident and that we have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all – regardless of station, race, or creed. Supposedly, these self-evident “rights” are:

n The right to a useful and remunerative job…
n The right to a good education.
n The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies…

n The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.
n The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health.
n The right of every family to a decent home.
n The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation.

(Democratic Underground)

These rights are not fully implemented and some which are in use today benefit more the one with money and oppresses the one without. We should demand that those rights that are not made into law be made into one and we should also demand for the alienable right to fire any public official, in any office for dereliction of duty. Dereliction of duty should include accepting gifts, pushing mandates and/or laws that do not benefit the whole, having a business agenda versus a people agenda, quid pro quo, changing the law to benefit the few (ones with money) versus the whole. We should instill pride in public service again and destroy the self-serving attitudes that have taken hold of the governing body. “We the people” have allowed our governing body to become great con artists like the Madoff’s of this world.

“We the people” should demand of our elected officials that once in office you are neither republican nor democrat, you are the “people.” So with this no republican or democrat agenda should or needs to be the order of the day, rather the people’s agenda should be the concern and topic of the day and the order of business. We should demand of our elected officials to look out for the people not business, since we do live and function in a capitalistic system it should bail itself out of any problems it put itself in. We should make it clear that we would not bail out any industry and that the only bailout would be for the people only, especially with how they are predicting a blow to the economy do to sequester. I think that sequester may be what the government needs to get its house in order and fund the programs that should be funded:

– security

– health

– education

– scales of economies (e.g. shelters, infrastructures, tourism, orphanages, et al)

Let us keep our government accountable to the people. I believe that petitioning the nation votes on an amendment to be made in our constitution that would allow for any public official, anyone in public office, be subject to a grade and if that grade, by the people, is unsatisfactory, then the people can vote him/her or them out off office and have them replaced. This would definitely keep us involve in our government and the government will then always remember that they serve the people, not fortune xyz companies or individuals with fortunes.

Love Unconditional…



A New You!!

I am borrowing one of Lateral Love’s sentence because I believe that it embodies all that we as “man”, meaning human beings, should strive for.
“All of humanities next phase of development will need to be imbued with Lateral Love in the light of unity. How we all contribute will be important. It is time to truly connect with each other and Unite the Light through the principles of the Decade of Lateral Love Around the World 2012 – 2022.” — Lateral Love
I know that we all are unique and have different thoughts, opinions and culture, however, I believe that with all those differences we do have a lot in common, some things as simple as hands, feet, eyes, nose, a brain, etc… We also feel, love, hate, dream, hope, eat and things like that. So, to me it stands to reason that we also have common love, hope, dreams, desires, needs and wants, so why don’t we become more interdependent on one another to make sure that each and every one of us reach what it is we call our dream because if we all make it we are better for it.


Sweden revokes parental rights of homeschooling family after three year ordeal

This is outrageous. When we give governments too much authority, things like this happen. Why is it that a parent cannot homeschool their kids? Why do government insist on intruding in every part of people’s lives? Why are we not rising up against such intrusions? Most important, why is the mainstream media not reporting on such human rights violations?

Look, I believe in science, god, karma, justice, what’s right, what’s honorable. I know fairness does not really exist in this system of ours but what is humanly right does. How can we have governments, who are supposed to be for the people go against the people just because they can. We need to hold our governments accountable. People, evil exist and will exist as long as there are people on earth, so I do not see why we need to give up our liberties for something that cannot be eradicated. I am not a pessimist nor a realist, I just see truths and accept them. Once I have accepted them, I look for ways to not let them affect my life and the life of those I love and cherish. I do not let them control me or allow them to dictate how I live. We lost countless lives in the civil war and the world wars for liberty for us to squander that currency over nothing. We need to fight to keep our freedoms. I may not agree with someone, so I am not going to create a law and/or amendment to satisfy my disdain for that person or what they say or do. Is it that we have it so good that we need to squander it away and lose it for us to finally see how precious it was? I tell you by then we would need to fight much harder than our ancestors to get it back. Well, lets keep this family, as well as others going through this, in our prayers and/or our thoughts.
