A Strong Woman is Running for President


I am so proud that we have such a strong woman likely to be the next president of the United States.  It is sad to say, but I don’t think everyone is proud.

In fact, I think there are many that feel threatened by such a strong woman. The day Hillary Clinton became First Lady, and began working on establishing health insurance for all, was just too much for the Good Old Boys (GOP) and conservative Democrats to handle.

We need to look past the Republicans’ effort who are trying everything and anything to keep this wonderful strong woman from becoming president. They have been trying, in vain, to discredit Hillary Clinton for years. We cannot let them get away with it.

It’s Election Season Again!


Bernie sanders with we the people

Bernie Sanders with We the People

So we are back. Back in the windy world of presidential politics.

As a person whose goal is to seek and disseminate the truth, I will say that I believe Bernie Sanders is the most truthful candidate I have ever seen.  He wants to work within the rigged system, then mobilize the American people to fix the system with their votes. The current system is set up so  private companies can give a lot of money to politicians so that they will legislate policies that enable these companies to make more money. This prevents our elected officials from doing what is best for We the People.  If these politicians do NOT do what the private companies want, they will give their money to another candidate, a candidate that they CAN control.

Well, the days are over when the People vote against there own self interests by believing the false rhetoric  “take our country back” or “make America great again.”  What the People didn’t understand, until finally Senator Sanders is now telling them, is that when they say “take our country back,” what they really mean is, take it away from We the People, and give it to wealthy.  When they say “make America great again,” what they are really saying is make the wealthiest Americans great again. And the word “again” is really unnecessary because it always was great for the wealthy, and it always will be great for the wealthy unless if we, yes, We the People, stand up and VOTE!

The voters of yesterday thought that government was too big. They thought they wanted  smaller government. If the government is made smaller,  all that extra “power and money” of the government will NOT be given to We the People! It will be given to the wealthy, the big corporations, the banks, the 1/10 of 1 percent.  If the voters want to “reduce the size of government,”  we the People will NOT be the beneficiaries! We the People will not prosper.  The wealthy will prosper. The wealthy will take  control, doing what is best for their profit line, definitely NOT what is best for We the People.

We the People, and only We the People have the power, but we must use that power by voting! And we must vote for someone who is going to keep We the People in power by taking that power and money away from the wealthy, the big corporations, the banks, the 1/10 of 1 percent. That wealth does not trickle down. That wealth does NOT create jobs. If it did, We the People would be getting richer, too. But, as we all know, the rich are getting richer and the We are getting poorer.

Bernie Sanders is the only one who can effectively bring this truthful message to We the People, and enable Us to rebuild this nation, to make is strong, to make it safe, to make it the envy of all the world.

Supreme Court voted today: Allow corporations to purchase any candidate


Today, the Supreme Court has ruled to lift restrictions on what corporations and labor organizations may invest to sway voters in federal elections.  This vote means an end to real democracy.

Let me be clear about what this means.

If the Supreme Court had done this previously, than the cigarette companies would still be selling cigarettes on the air, in teenage magazines, with no warning on their packaging.  The cigarette companies would have saturated the airways to vote out the candidate trying to tell the truth about the fact that cigarettes were the number one killer of Americans.   Ford Pinto’s would have never had to pull their faulty auto, causing explosions and killing 100’s of people.  Ford would have purchased the candidate which would support Ford.

The implications of this are simple: an end to democracy in America.

This is so new, that I don’t even know yet what we can do about it. The only thing I have heard about is www.savedemocracy.net

DO SOMETHING!

When you have the opportunity to make a choice


Today, I was listening to a radio talk show when a woman dialed in with a comment. She was sobbing to the point where she could hardly speak, but felt compelled to recount her plight. The show host was patient and gentle, helping the woman tell her story and I found myself listening with sadness and empathy as this terrible story unfolded.

After attending her Evangelical church, as she did regularly, she told us about one horrifying evening that changed her life forever. After church one evening, she had become a victim of rape. To make a terrorizing experience even worse, she became pregnant from this rape. This woman is a pro-life evangelical and she was faced with the most excruciating choice ever to face a woman. The pain was so great, that she had seriously considered suicide, but she had a choice, without which two lives may have been lost.

Yes, she had a choice, and Sarah Palin had a choice to keep her special needs child. Both of these woman are pro-life, and yet, they both made different choices. Our talk show caller terminated the pregnancy because, as she told us while deep in tears, it was the only choice that enabled her to go on living.

Sarah Palin believes that this woman should have been considered a criminal, and yet, she was the victim. When Gov. Palin has her chance to build a supreme court, and she will, she will pick judges that will reverse Roe V. Wade, even in cases of rape or incest.

The idea of criminalizing our talk show caller makes me feel profoundly angry and fear the future of this country. No one can claim to understand how this woman felt and no one should have the right to dictate what this woman must do.

We are all pro-life, and there is no such thing as a pro-abortion movement. All we are asking for in this great free country is the freedom to make the most difficult and personal choice a woman might ever have to make.

Sarah Palin is too extreme for this country. She might make a great leader of a secular nation, but not of this free nation.
