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.

Bridge to Lies


When Sara Palin was introduced to the American People, it didn’t take but a minute or two before she blew out her first lie when she said “thanks but no thanks” on that bridge to nowhere.

She not only supported this bridge, that would have brought only a few dozen people to their homes, but fought hard to secured a $223 million earmark in 2005.

As soon as she realized the entire country was making a mockery of this bridge idea, Palin called off construction midstream, and NEVER RETURNED THE MONEY!

Now how well can we trust a politician who, in her first few minutes of her first national appearance while the entire nation was watching, choses to include an easily verifiable LIE!

Sarah Palin. Who she is and who she is NOT!


Sarah Palin. I suspected it would be a woman. Meg Whitman, I thought, but this is the mystery choice of the election.  McCain met her once in person, and once over the phone. Apparently, the third time was the charm because I highly doubt that she was even vetted.

This is what I know so far:

Just this month, she is being investigated by a bi-partisan committee for allegations of abuse of power in case involving the firing of her former brother-in-law.

McCain has said the the most important quality of a running mate is the ability to become commander-in-chief at a moments notice.

Gov. Palin, who has said herself that she is “not really interested in Iraq,” has no foreign policy experience whatsoever. With a 72 year old cancer survivor as our president, and such a complicated world, can we really take that chance?

Palin has served only 2 years as Governor and before that, she was council woman and mayor in a small town.

She has a modest 4 year bachelors degree in journalism with a minor in politics.

She is currently under investigation by an independent investigator hired by the state legislature for abuse of power.  To put it simply, her sister went through a divorce (with a difficult custody battle) from a state trouper named Mike Wooten, so Palin allegedly fired his boss because he did not fire Wooton. This investigation has commenced this month, and a deposition is pending in August, 2008.

Last year, Palin disagreed with the Board of Agriculture and Conservation controlled Creamery Board who wanted to shut down a state funded dairy company, so she fired the entire board and replaced them with members that agreed with her.  The Matanuska Maid Dairy went out of business anyway and the state could not even sell off their assets to pay of its debts.

She is adamantly pro-life with no exceptions and advocates that creationism should be taught in schools.

This choice has made quite a sparkle, but hot fire burns out quickly.  Soon, the news will spread that she has no history of any kind in national, international and foreign policy issue.  I wouldn’t trust her to be a heartbeat away from our commander-in-chief and there are very few that would.

Choosing a vice president is the first important decision a candidate must make.  If this is McCain’s first judgement call as president, he stepped out of the gate and into the mud.
