a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization,
it expects what never was and never will be." --Thomas Jefferson
to Charles Yancey, 1816. ME 14:384
many times do we hear or read: Americans are so stupid! Dozens,
thousands? No one likes to be called stupid. There is a big difference
between ignorance and stupidity. We've all done stupid things
in our lives like sticking your finger in boiling water and wonder
why you did it when you knew the water was scalding. Ignorance
means lack of knowledge or education.
January 2013, I wrote a column titled: Voters
Educate the Elected. Unless you know your member of the Outlaw
Congress, getting any kind of sit down with them is nearly impossible,
even in the district offices. Not all, but I feel confident in
saying most based on my experiences over the past two decades.
You are handed over to some staffer bobble head who is as clueless
as your congress critter. That's why it's so important to get
to town hall meetings in your district. Cowards in the Outlaw
Congress are more and more doing town hall 'meetings' by telephone
so they don't have to be confronted by the great unwashed: Angry
Resident Confronting McCain on Immigration During Town Hall
much the same goes on at the state level as far as getting past
the gate keepers in your state capitol. Not all; it depends on
what state you're in and who represents you. Some state legislators
sincerely do try to meet with constituents. Numbers matter when
getting their attention because they look at you as a vote. But,
you can get an opportunity to speak at town hall meetings and
that's when you bring up why haven't you abolished the unconstitutional
"FED"? Or gotten the US out of the UN and so on. I've done it;
people come up to me later and want to know more. Your golden
opportunity to begin the teaching process.
sorry to say here in Texas, our state legislature, based on their
refusal to address four very serious issues, are killing us with
their ignorance. While at the state capitol last year with a couple
of patriots, we stopped to speak to three legislators about a
constitutional sound money bill. One of them, about 6'7" looked
down at me (5'3") and arrogantly told me the State of Texas is
doing just grand and are prepared for any future severe financial
down turns. What horse crap. Here
are the four bills many of us tried to get introduced and
passed; nothing was done.
legislature went out of session in April last year and doesn't
go back until January 2015; just like Montana, North Dakota and
Nevada. Shortly after going out of session, one of the individuals
I was at the capitol with said he spoke with several of the newly
elected tea party legislators. They expressed an interest in the
bills, but didn't know anything about the subject matter or our
efforts despite me personally sending them the information. It's
getting time for Texans to crank up efforts to get to our legislators
and demand those bills get passed in the next session, although
it's close to being too late. For those who don't know, bills
for the next session are done and in the hopper by Thanksgiving.
Of course, we're all at a disadvantage this year because it's
an election year....one has to hope the legislator they've been
working with gets reelected.
I'm only one person, I don't have a staff so I can't track bills
in all 50 state legislatures for this session. But, I would bet
there are very few addressing a constitutional sound money bill,
the critical importance of reconstituting the constitutional militia,
Agenda 21 and other critical issues. Why? Because there's not
enough heat from constituents because they have no idea what I'm
talking about and neither do their state reps and senators or
party leadership. Walking the halls of the capitol last year,
every office [R] we stopped in had FOX news on the boob tube.
That's one of the reasons they're so uninformed. FOX does not
touch issues like the economy in the right way by going after
the "FED" and those job killing "free" trade treaties. It's the
same old thing every night on their gab fest shows. During the
day it's news and junk to fill the time until prime time.
been in the trenches full time for the past 23 years. I've seen,
heard and read ignorance by very highly educated people every
day of the week. Now, that might sound like a complete juxtaposition,
but it's not. Let me give you this example because it's not just
educated, elected members of the Outlaw Congress and your state
legislature, it's sincere, well meaning conservatives who simply
do not understand the issues. Their ignorance is killing us and
this is how.
week I received a beautiful color mailing encouraging you to vote
early by mail; it is a sample ballot from the Conservative
Republicans of Texas. While I 'm registered no party, I always
receive a Republican ballot on election day when I vote; the nice
ladies just hand it to me. I blocked out the name of the MD who
gave a statement and signed his name representing that organization.
I'm not out to embarass anyone. According to his statement, he's
been part of that group since 1992 "...to present voters a listing
of the best qualified, conservative candidates. This is the original
endorsement slate of conservative Republican candidates." I was
absolutely appalled when
I looked at the sample ballot.
Senator. The incumbent, John Cornyn has seven challengers. The
Conservative Republicans of Texas want Texans to reelect an individual
who has defecated on the Bill of Rights at every opportunity.
He voted for the misnamed "Patriot Act". Voted to extend that
monster. Voted yes on the NDAA. Cornyn has voted consistently
to kill American jobs and sovereignty. Voted yes on promoting
free trade with Peru. Voted yes on free trade agreement with Oman.
Voted yes on implementing CAFTA for Central America free-trade.
Voted yes on establishing free trade between US & Singapore.
Voted yes on establishing free trade between the US and Chile.
He has done nothing to get us out of NAFTA or GATT/WTO. He's nothing
more than a pimp for supranational corporations.
conservative? Cornyn Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare. Cornyn
Voted for the Wall Street Bailout (T.A.R.P.) A grotesque, unconstitutional
theft of your wallet. Unconstitutional: Cornyn Voted to Increase
the Federal Minimum Wage. Cornyn Has Voted to Raise the Debt Ceiling
Eight Times; rest
of short list here. That rotten slug hasn't focused on the
unconstitutional "FED" and the debauched currency we are forced
to use, getting us out of the communist UN, eliminating unconstitutional
cabinets and agencies bleeding we the people dry and into poverty.
Now, doctor, I'm supposed to reward such a snake by reelecting
checked for incumbent Rep. Randy Neugebauer. Are you kidding me?
Another free trade traitor who also votes for every bill that
kills the Bill of Rights; his
voting record. I've lived in Texas almost 8 years and have
never voted for good old boy, Randy. I vote every time for a challenger,
but the party and their big money always backs the incumbent.
Abbot for governor. He is currently Texas' Attorney General who
has always done a very fine job. Until, that is, when it comes
to those dangerous 'smart' meters. Hundreds of us sent letters
to him asking he open a criminal investigation into the energy
companies for their criminal behavior regarding installation of
those dangerous meters. We all received the same form letter from
one of his flunkies saying he couldn't do that when on his official
state web site it says he can. Why the slap in the face? Because
over the past 10 years, Abbot has taken over $23 MILLION bux in
campaign donations from just energy companies - the same ones
we've been going after for the past few years. Big money behind
Abbott. The hell with Texans.
doctor from the Conservative Republicans of Texas wants me to
reelect State Senator Kel Seliger. I wrote that idiot when Obamacare
became a big issue. His response: Golly, gee, that's a federal
matter, go away. Another ignorant career politician. While an
'opt out' regarding 'smart' meters is a Band Aid, it was important
we get the bill passed in our state legislature last year. One
vote was needed - Seliger's. We didn't get it. I called Seliger's
office asking he vote for it. Know what I got - as did several
in this district? "You people quit calling. Smart meters are not
a priority". I'm supposed to reward another state legislator who
cares nothing about the health or privacy of his constituents?
I don't think so.
the sample ballot it has a comparison of conservative
Republicans vs liberals. Sounds good, but in reality, Republicans
took control of Congress in January 1995 and began outspending
40 years of Democratic/Communist Party USA looting. 'For cutting
government spending and regulations'. Sure. The Republicans control
the U.S. House of Representatives, they've had control again since
2010. They have done NOTHING to return to a limited form of republican
government. They continue to pass budgets for unconstitutional
cabinets, agencies; the unconstitutional waste of taxpayers dollars
is simply putrid. (USAID
Wasted $1 BILLION (borrowed debt) Propping Up Afghan Ministries...and
That's Just the Tip of the Iceberg).
does the good doctor think the new 40,000 regulations coming out
of the District of Criminals originate? The House, the Senate
and unconstitutional cabinets and agencies. Instead of abolishing
them and cutting off funding, the gutless poltroons do nothing
but whine and blame it on Harry Reid or the impostor in the White
are conservatives going to get out of denial? All of
the incumbents listed on that sample ballot are moral conservatives
as I am. But, when it comes to curing the cancer, all they do
is treat the symptoms and blame Democrats while America goes to
hell. We must work to get 'conservatives' to understand
what they're conserving when they support bad incumbents is conserving
the road to destruction.
doctor from the Conservative
Republicans of Texas is in a leadership position, but what
is he leading voters to? The same incumbents in the Outlaw Congress
who have destroyed this republic. At the state level, the same
incumbents who refuse to address the most serious issues that
are hurting their citizens. It is 'the blind leading the blind'.
can you be a leader if you're ignorant about our what caused such
massive unemployment in this country the past 20 years (Congress'
refusal to get us out of NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT/WTO and others), why
the disabilities of our monetary system will, not if, collapse
thanks to the privately owned "Federal" Reserve (booms, busts,
recessions and depressions), why the US must get out of the UN,
why every state must do as Alabama did last year and pass the
same bill to kick Agenda 21 out of our states?
truth is you can't be a leader if you are ignorant about the U.S.
Constitution, life threatening issues like the security of a free
state and what the Second Amendment actually mandates, fiat currency
and the list goes on.
not trying to gang up on that particular gentleman because I believe
he is sincere and well meaning, he just doesn't have the facts.
Neither did I until 1991 when the subject of the "Federal" Reserve
was dropped in my lap and began my journey of learning and re-educating
myself about so many things. That doctor isn't stupid, he just
needs the facts about the issues I've listed and more. Once he
understands them, I believe as so many other good, decent Americans
have, he would work to see destroyers like Cornyn booted out of
do we help people like him? By making contact at the LOCAL level
because the party machines rule committees, party business and
conventions. Without feed back or participation, the machine's
agenda and candidates dominate. I know because when I ran for
Congress, I attended every breakfast party meeting, dinners, you
name it. I saw how corrupt it was at the local level while the
party faithful went along with what their "leadership" fed them.
One of the reasons I left the Republican Party in April 1996 after
being a member for 29 years.
in the state houses and the Outlaw Congress usually start at the
local level. They run party committees, win local offices and
move up the political ladder. The State Capitol, then Congress
or State Attorney General or Governor. That's why all politics
are local. But, if the 'local' are ignorant on the issues or misinformed,
it spreads like a malignant cancer and breeds exactly the class
of incumbents that continue to get reelected every two years (six
for the senate). It's up to you and me to get to those local chapters
of the Republican Party. Polls indicate 42% of Americans now identify
themselves as independents, BUT the party machine is the body
that shoves their choice down your
'independent' throat. The money and those two party machines is
enormous. The power plays and back room dealing with we the people
as the designated losers.
there are 'third' parties like the Constitution Party who I believe
should concentrate on getting as many local offices filled as
possible to help build their numbers and their platform. In the
real world right now, it's still the Republican and Democratic/Communist
Party USA who rule at the state and federal level. I think based
on polls and the rage across this country that if the Republicans
pass ANY form of amnesty, they can fold up their tent and go home.
Kerry was endorsed by the Communist Party USA. The impostor in
the White House was endorsed twice by the Communist Party USA.
Anyone who belongs to the Democratic Party supports communism,
Democratic Party merge with Communist Party? Yes, because
as I said in that column for WND, their political ideology are
one and the same. Ignorant, foolish Americans who have allowed
themselves to be herded in the desired direction as they cheer
on their own destruction. Freedom and liberty mean nothing to
tens of millions of Americans, only what mommy government can
cannot stop the destruction of our republic if influential leaders
at the local and state level continue promoting the same incumbents
who are destroying us. Even if you are not a member of
the Republican Party, call your local chapter and ask if you can
attend their meetings. Begin the dialogue about the most pressing
issues right now. All of the above and in these columns:
the Band Aid Brigade
Cain's 9-9-9: Another poison band aid for bankers
New Band Aid Pushers
Another Band Aid while U.S. economy exsanguinates
know everyone is pressed for time; how well I know. My last two
columns were about stopping ANY
form of amnesty; adults or minors (the
myth of 'anchor babies') and two
more destructive "free" trade treaties. The good news on that
front is last week Dirty Harry Reid put
the skids on the TPP for 'fast track'. However, don't let
them fool you - Boehner is hell bent on giving Barry Soetoro aka
Obama everything he wants to destroy more American jobs and sovereignty.
think you're probably like me - friends and family are like minded.
What we have to do is get to those like the doctor above who put
out the voter's guide to reelect "conservatives" to the Outlaw
Congress and our state house. That has to be done on the local
level. If we keep talking to the choir, what do we accomplish?
We all end up knowing the words to the same song.
Sure, I'd love to go fishing and have a life again. I've given
up the things I love over two decades ago because what I found
out through research scared me. Sure, I'd like to have a paycheck;
in 23 years I've given up more than a million dollars in earnings.
What good is money without freedom? What good is money if the
General Government tracks every move you make and tries to force
you to obey thousands of unconstitutional laws?
Party USA members are effective because of what's called 'community
organizing'. Very effective at getting the herds of cattle to
the ballot box. Very effective at brainwashing their members to
accept socialism and communism as the utopian form of government
while they demand your paycheck to fund all their social issue
need to help conservatives become constitutionalists so they stop
buying the party machine's lies and promoting their Band Aids.
If we are to be 'of the people, by the people and for the people'
- all Americans - then we have to take the time to put country
first, recreation and fun times on hold and party loyalty at the
bottom of the list. If we do nothing, nothing will get done and
those in leadership positions at the local and state levels will
continue with 'the blind leading the blind'.
can I use to get the truth to 'busy' people who think they know
the solutions? On
the front page of my web site I have now permanently posted the
tools to help everyone get the facts to our fellow Americans
who do want to save our country. They are by no means the only
ones, but I believe are the most effective. Boots on the ground.
Network because it works. Knowledge is power but only if we use
it to help others. Diplomacy and the facts will win the day.
