Archive for the ‘President Barack Obama’ Category

Originally Published:  October 14, 2010

It’s too bad Americans have grown so dull-witted. It’s also sad we’re still, as a nation, so racist. As we discovered that not only is President Barack Obama half Black (or half White, depending on your orientation), but he’s also related to:

Dick Cheney-
Sarah Palin-
George W. Bush!-

Wow! Well, maybe an “oh well,” would be more appropriate, but at any rate, I say all that to say that in this election year, we have forgotten what has happened, what’s at stake and where we’re going… should we fail to exercise intelligence and prudence, in voting to lend greater support to a President who, to this day, has not had the opportunity to be a president-in-full.  Ever defending his right simply to “legitimately” be there, he has not yet had a chance equal to that of his quite obviously inferior predecessor, who was afforded a most undeserved benefit of multiple doubts, we certainly deserve to be shown exactly what this man is made of, so that at the very least, he has an “equal opportunity” to put his own stamp on his own administration, with his own Congressional delegation, so that history will be a fairer judge than our racially biased prejudices.

Because at a moment past Barack Obama’s swearing-in as president, the Right wing declared war on his presidency. And making us all hostages in the process. At this rate, we may never know the potential of this man, as a president, but if we had not given George W. Bush the benefit of lo, those many doubts, imagine what pain, suffering and chaos the American people alone, could have saved the world. And ourselves… Something to think about as election day draw nearer…

Yet, we sit in solitary confinement, most of us anyway, contemplating the rage and psychosis of Republicans, Right-wing pundits, tea baggers and other racist-tinged/consumed/obsessed fanatics, who imagine our Democracy resembles even in some small way, mortal danger they erroneously imagine it to be, simply because an American electoral majority was intelligent enough to elect the very best candidate of the field in 2008. Well, as a late news flash, the danger has already passed! President Obama’s cousins are no longer in the White House and we can now be relieved that if, as of this coming Mid Term election, as we elect as many Democrats as possible, our nation will be back on track that much sooner and on the road to saving itself, as well as the world, from the hazards of big money, big lies and bigger delusions that we just barely survived during the 2001 through 2008 period. That we really aren’t in as much trouble as we allowed ourselves to get into previously, means we have an ever greater opportunity to place ourselves and our world, to the position we were just as President Bill Clinton was departing the White House.

And speaking of great Presidents, much of our collective issue is we fail to give credit where it certainly is due. We can’t blame President Obama and in fact are wrong to, without taking into consideration all of what he inherited. We also cannot appreciate the absolutely dismal job performance of the previous administration, without taking into consideration the posture President Clinton left the nation and the world at large, as of January 20, 2001.  As such, here’s a trivia question for you boys and girls: Can anyone honestly remember the last time we had money in the bank, when the one administration was handed off to its successor?

As we were poised to be rid of a national debt, accumulated by 12 years of Republican inefficiency, negligence and irrationality, in nearly any and every category of performance, bring peace to every corner of the globe (INCLUDING AND ESPECIALLY the Middle East), uplifted the viability of developing nations, while simultaneously tutoring on how to avoid the mistakes developed nations have already experienced (regarding resource management, the valuation of education, pollution monitoring and control, avoiding imperialistic tendencies, corrupt governmental practices, impacting lurid business/government associations, as well as the benefits of maintaining a clean and healthy Liberal, Democratic society and related institutions), our nation and by extension, the world at large, were moving in a direction never before witnessed in the history of human civilization!

Because this didn’t occur, it’s easier to dismiss this sort of projecting and yes, imagining, as far-fetched, but depend on Republicans and their zany Right-wing supporters to mess up even the simplest of tasks.

To understand that 30 years ago – EXACTLY – President Jimmy Carter placed atop the White House, Solar Panels. The purpose? To set both an example and a trend, as to where we would be heading, in order to tame our obsession over the use of cheap, fossil fuel energy sources. Of course, fossil fuels were never cheap, with the associated costs figured in, and then calculated as a whole. But the warning had already sounded, in the form of the oil embargo of the mid-1970′s, coupled with the decline (even at that time) of easily accessible petroleum reserves world-wide.

President Carter’s bold plan would have resulted in America and no doubt, much of the planet, being free of the addiction to burning petroleum, using it, instead, in more vital, life-saving, and much less dangerous methods. This plan was to develop totally renewable sources of clean energy, that would have cost pennies on the dollar, and saved trillions in military, pollution, health and environmental costs, that as of today, are all threatening to destroy our national stability, as well as our probability to survive as a species, beyond the next two centuries.

Taking up such awesome challenges are not things Republicans have the ability to perform. If it’s not about personal enrichment and attaining ultimate, unilateral power over everyone in sight, Republicans and their Right-wing confederates don’t want to even consider it. Because the future is so far away, it is their philosophy to ignore it altogether! But can the rest of us be comfortable taking this same perspective? Can we really, in good conscience, doom future generations to a miserable, hellish existence, that will only progressively worsen, the longer we take to make the decision that Climate Change is indeed a problem and is, unequivocally, our responsibility?

Oh course then, it’s no wonder that young voters have soured on the president. With his legacy firmly tied to that of both Presidents Clinton and Carter, the media itself, has joined in on the hate campaign against President Obama, to ensure he, as well as all Democrats up for election this fall, fail in their effort to lend a hand in saving this nation. To turn the nation back over to Republican control would be the height of irresponsibility and the equivalent of a suicide pact among those voters committing such a horrendous wrong against a nation that is the last beachhead against tyranny and political and economic oppression.

After all, if you allowed an acquaintance to drive your car while drunk, and they crashed it, would you then, give them the keys and allow them to continue driving? This is the choice we, as a nation, are facing at this moment. We know what Republicans have done to this nation. We have seen it with our collective eyes and have already decided that going in a Liberal, Progressive direction, is what will put us back on track. No matter what the tea baggers say, they are Republican through and through. Their presence is the same as Republicans, in opposition to policies of the president and the direction the nation absolutely needs to embark upon, in order to save this Democracy.

We owe it to ourselves to escape from the fictional world painted by Republicans, tea baggers and the media and have the courage to vote our convictions and give OUR PRESIDENT a hand in his – and ‘OUR’ moment of urgent need…

Think this through as this election season winds down. There is much more at stake than you know…  And this leads us back to the trivia question above and how much the nation had in the bank, as of January 19, 2001: the total was around $300 billion – give or take a few hundred million.  But who’s counting?  Whether it’s saving money or saving the nation, Liberal/Progressives have historically done it better and is a reality we need to be especially mindful of this November…

Legitimacy Measures – Part One

In the endless search for reasons – any and all – to show the highest degree disrespect any American president has ever endured, the one thing we can be assured of is the vile, disgusting, ignorant stupidity of racism has not regressed at all!

If White people do NOT denounce race-based, hate-inspired attacks on President Barack Obama – and more directly, repudiate the attackers openly, then they too, share in the shame and disgrace that stains the whole of the White race, for not collectively maturing and erasing such behaviors and beliefs from their broad psyche and literal belief foundations.

Because of the converse reality that, although over 90% registered Black voters rejected the candidacy of George W. Bush, an awesome and extremely accurate observational measurement by any calculation – saw none of the belittling, disrespectful, petty or racist attacks, associating his personal, business or executive failures, his legacy entitlements, allowing someone with his inept academic history, to be accepted at such a revered institution as Yale, because of family traditions, cowardice in securing an unprovisional waiver from Vietnam, where his 2000 election year presidential opponent, Al Gore, and tens of thousands of other young men fought, bled and died in his place, from years in a drug-addled stupor, or his astounding obtusion, at his absolute inability to grasp the extent he was being manipulated and used, in the destruction of lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of Americans and their families, all for the enrichment of the handful of White individuals, share holders and their corporations.
As an American of diverse background, I have had the pleasure and distress of experiencing the race issue from a multitude of angles, allowing me a very distinct perspective, unlike many ordinary Americans – White or Black, meaning that what is contained herein, is a measure of truth Americans are still traumatized over, and unable, at this late date in this American drama, to deal with on a mature level. Meaning, that the Whites who refuse to defend the president, as well as the Blacks too afraid to speak up – knowing such ignorance should be vehemently rejected at every opportunity.

Fear of speaking out has cost this nation dearly, now going on three centuries. Knowing slavery was wrong, sexism, racism and child oppression, exploitation and brutality of the working class child and adult, to the point of being dangerous to their safety and economic mobility, all were immoralities that, in common, rational agreement, and as a nation have, over time, corrected these evil afflictions. But we have not departed from this road altogether.  Truth was in economic, as well as a patriarchal inconvenience, of which its speakers – then as now – tip-toe around, for fear of offending the guilty!

Every member of the above-mentioned class, has been severely injured – intentionally, since 1980. The right to engage in free speech and dialogue is a given, just as we have the right to arm ourselves – with knowledge, intelligence and wisdom, against stupidity, ignorance and induced lunacy. The failure to responsibly defend ourselves and our nation from such forces, is a failure of human culture and contradicts the suppositions and claims of our achieving the highest levels of sophistication and intelligence, reflective of this contemporary human civilization model. Embracing rational dialogue and people gives legitimacy to our civilization. We need to stand with the president and those choosing to raise the intelligence level of each other and shame those with rejection and isolation, those who insist on behaving with the minds of childish, immature brats!
It is, after all, the child who is selfish, rude, unable to share or to give selflessly. Only upon maturity, do children realize cooperative efforts with others is the surest route to comprehensive, broad-based success for as many as are involved – and beyond! Nor for the child alone, or exclusively, either. But for the entirety of the community. This is the lesson shared commitment. Shared sacrifice. This is the lesson of America and the fundamental essence of Democracy. But this was the failure of our nation and its citizens, over this previous 10 years, as we allowed fear, confusion and intellectual oblivion, to rule our very critical and essential civic considerations.

Breaking down along the fault zones of racism, some Americans sought refuge in the fact that a Caucasian president exploited feel-good policies, for the advancement of class fortifications and enrichment, exclusively. With star-spangled, wild-eyed, fanatically patriotic zeal, these same Americans, unaware of their own history, discounted one such true patriot, Samuel Johnson, who was famously quoted on the eve of the Revolution, in April of 1775, to “…beware! Patriotism, being the last refuge of scoundrels, is a false and hollow sanctuary, used to conceal the treacherous heart of deceit…“ And while the wealthiest one percent of the American population got even wealthier, the bottom 97% are on a rocket-ride to an economic crash of cataclysmic proportion!

The racist nature of the attacks on President Obama, relate to the fiction that this is all his doing, fault and responsibility. Never mind that as of November, 2008, our choice was also another United States Senator, by the name of John McCain…

Now that crazies rule the business, political, even the media world, it’s no wonder the future looks so bleak! The sad truth is, however, this: when Republicans are in office, they’re all over the place in the media. When Democrats are in the White House, Republicans are STILL all over the place in the media! Translation being, we’re subjected to an inordinate degree of indoctrination – hypnosis, if you will, into thinking like Conservative Republicans and it has made us all nuts!!!

Case in point: where President Barack Obama “seems” to be ineffective, is merely a result of our “perceptions” of what we’ve been exposed to, by force, over the last 17 consecutive months – that he’s no good and a “bad” president, by predominant media accounts. Truth is, nobody – NOT ANYONE, can be as bad as the moronic administration they (Conservative Republicans) served up to the American people, this last previous term, which is why they are putting all their resources to bear on making President Obama “appear” as bad, as inept, as incompetent, as the products they normally serve up for the executive.

The Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe was 30 years in the making. If we had listened to President James Carter 31 years ago, returning him to the White House in re-election, consequently, we would be nearly, if not completely, free of the need to “burn” such a valuable mineral resource as petroleum, and thus, severely injuring the earth and its life sustaining capacity, in the process. As a result, Ronald Reagan began the process, with assistance from the last administration, in completing the process, of destroying the functionalability of government, so that of course, it doesn’t and cannot work as it should.

The last things we needed, were forced upon us, by the previous administration and indoctrinated into our value system as a result, by the media, over the course of this past 9 years: tax cuts only to the wealthy and corporations, burning more fossil fuels faster and war.
The first thing on the last administrations’ agenda was to halt the Clean Air Initiative, proposed in California (that would eventually have set the standard nationally), to re-classify SUV’s as small pickups trucks, as well as removing the pollution-hazard designation from SUV’s altogether. The result has been a dramatic increase in CO2 levels and an equally startling increase in Climate Degradation.

As for tax cuts, President William Jefferson Clinton showed us AND Republican Conservatives, that tax cuts to the broad spectrum of income earners, along with R&D and various other tax offsets and incentives, was the best way to revive an economy mugged and assaulted by Republican policies and ideology. Leaving a fiscal surplus at the time he left office, and a functional, whole economy in the process, was the most responsible thing any president has done the entire 20th century! Not to mention the fact that we didn’t engage in warfare, unnecessarily costing the lives of Americans and foreign citizens alike, world-wide.

But this wasn’t good enough for the American people, as we engaged in juvenille, peeping-tom shinanagans, prying into the personal life of the president and allowing such crude, psycho fetishes to be paraded all across – you guessed it – the predominate, corporate media. Made issue of in the 2000 election, we had become a sanctimonious bunch, demanding pristine morality from anyone else to enter the White House… and we let Republican voters decide this… and we see how that has gone over…

It’s a given that we didn’t have to go to war, either in Afghanistan nor Iraq. As it is too late to backtrack and correct the situation, we are now under the hypnotic, self-delusive misapprehension that the war, the economy and the oil spill are all the fault of President Obama! I will ask the reader to honestly re-read this article, up to this point, in reconsideration of this entire paragraph, to get a sense of the madness that has gripped the psyche of a fairly large proportion of the nations adult population. As the media has done everything possible to cloud issues relating to healing the nations wounds, inflicted by un-American, economically dangerous, possibly treasonous policies, by the previous administration, where do we go from here?…

Up next: Part II – What Americans can do – of all political parties, in “instructing” our representatives on where we WILL lead them…

In commemoration of my fifth year of publication, I’ll be republishing all of my blogs from the very beginning.  It should be noted that I tried this earlier and due to the illegal, warrantless and CRIMINAL surveillance I’m under, my newest blog was ERASED in mid-production.  Each time I’m on a computer, no matter where I am, I’m interrupted in this very same way.  Whomever is spying on me is terrified of me because I’m boldly stating what the compromised, bought-out, corporate media is both afraid to say and paid to leave unsaid and thus, are doing their utmost to harass, intimidate and make life as uncomfortable as possible.  The only way this will end is by every reader contacting their Congress person to force the government, state and local police agencies, as well as illegal military contractors operating right on the streets of our cities and towns, nation-wide.  By putting an END to this secretive, un-Godly terror, can we reclaim our Democracy BACK FROM EXILE

Original Publication Date – April 24, 2010

For some reason, Conservatives and Libertarians think this crisis and chaos began January 20, 2009. Apparently, they slept through the previous eight years. For that, they can be forgiven. However, the unforgivable sins continue to mount – namely, blaming President Obama, President Clinton, or any other soft, easy target, that will take attention off the facts… that since 1981, Americans wages, job options, educational opportunities and quality of living, all have been in decline.

We won’t need to debate the reality of this, as it will be an exercise in futility; but as Big Eddie Schultz would say, “…you’re entitled to your opinion, but not your own facts…” Which brings us to the reality that for eight consecutive years (well, maybe six; years seven & eight, the “sleepers” began to stir, as the house was going up in flames!), Conservative and Libertarian voters swore that the administration was on track and that we were just around the corner from prosperity. Really? Well, by ’08, we hit the corner. Then the ditch. Then over the cliff. But it wasn’t just the tax cuts, that again, for eight consecutive years, drained money from the treasury, nearly bankrupting the nation in the process.

If you look at the government as if a business, you have to concede that a business requires revenue. Without revenue, your business will fail. With me still? Good. If you offer a service people need, like say, medicare, paved roads, bridges, a space program to observe and contemplate the universe, an oversight agency to protect your pension and 401K, or an army, navy, marines and air force to protect the nation and its allies, then its up to the consumers of those goods and services to pay the necessary fees. Are we all following this so far? Good… Now, if for some reason, a decision is made to discount services, or give ‘em away for free, to, say, some of the “deciders” favorite friends, but jack up the rates for everyone else, that doesn’t seem very fair, now does it? And lets just speculate also, that due to unforeseen economic circumstances, some of the “rest” started losing jobs and were unable to afford the cost of those goods and services. And just as the business began to fail, friends of the “decider” began to steal cash out of the til. Lots and LOTS of cash! This was, in fact, the situation between 2001 and 2008. And it’s not hard to guess, but the business won’t be in business for very much longer. This is the fix we’re now in. This is the mess the current president has inherited. This is the crisis that must be undone before we can see any sort of result from the effort of putting criminals, crazies and good-for-nothings in a place where they can do no further harm to the “business.” But that won’t happen by taking the word of the same malcontents and criminal element, that were responsible for this disaster in the first place!

Now, everybody’s all up in arms on the Conservative and Libertarian side, because the banks got bailed out and blame the current administration for the bail. But, if that’s the case, why is this administration having to reset regulations, so that the criminal activity that was chronic over the previous eight years, will be, well, criminal again? And granted, some of these same regulations came off the books during the Clinton years, there was no criminalizing going on in the banking and investment systems over that same period (of the Clinton administration), to the degree it had, during the period of 2001-2008. There weren’t the job losses. The business failures. The wars. Ah yes, the wars…

Funny thing that transparency, being a normal part of business accounting practices, were as absent in the federal government between 2001 to 2008, as it was with Enron, Arthur Andersen, WorldCom, and a host of other firms, that used the “Enron” accounting methods, to “cook” their books and show only the sunny side of the ledger, concealing the “real” economic status, thereby swindling investors and customers out of millions, billions of dollars in investments. By failing to add the war to the cost of doing “business”, the previous administration also only showed the “sunny” side of the ledger (By the way, if this is too difficult to follow, you may want to pick up your GED before you go any further, with an economics class for good measure). Well, by the time the current administration was sworn in, they had no idea. And so here we are…

These are just a few of the uglier truths we are having to confront. If we do not, we may not get another opportunity. By listening to the advice of members of the Republican Governors Conference, in trying to romanticize about some obscure historical nobody (Guy Fawkes), who is likened in imagery and in the same company as civil war confederates.  But is more akin to our own Liberal/Progressive Rebels who fought their way through to a new nation – complete with a new Liberal/Progressive Constitution, Bill of Rights and a primer (The Federalist Papers) to ensure every citizen understood every passage of the Constitution and subsequent Amendments.  Telling this truth however, is sure to create more problems for Republicans who misunderstand enough already about our Liberal/Progressive history.  Owning greater understanding will inevitably force deeper reflection and in turn, slow down our momentum toward progress… Unless that’s the plan in rejecting realities and the obvious… Those ugly truths… just don’t quit do they?

But, the really big deal, it must be acknowledged, is the complexion of the current commander-in-chief. All of the stereotypes have been resurrected, full force, to make the case that the country is falling apart, because he occupies THE nation’s top leadership post. Good of you to notice. We Liberals and Progressives saw the signs seven years ago, made a big deal over it, but nobody paid attention. Oh yeah, you guys were sleeping (sorry, but I keep forgetting how folks suffering deep-seated pathologies – like racism, social dysfunctions, tendencies toward violent outbursts and behaviors, often detach from reality…)! Meanwhile, as Conservatives and Libertarians recovered from their long slumber, they awoke to a completely different reality. Only this time, this president is intelligent enough to walk, chew gum and holds a coherent conversation, and we’re all good with that, right? Can’t say that was the case the previous eight years; but whoever gets everything they want anyway?…

And as good a deal as it is for you guys on the other side to be fully awake now, it would be an even better deal if you’d roll up your sleeves, add some sweat and toil along with us Liberals and Progressives, and help rebuild a nation and world that YOUR VOTES are responsible for destroying! Democracy works best when every citizen is engaged… towards its betterment. And for better or worse, nobody stood in the way of the choice of Conservatives and Libertarians from 2001 through 2006… although we damn well should have…

Not to point fingers, but there comes a time to be responsible for your actions. If you bought it, claim it and be responsible for it! We plan to do just that, so get out of the way, at the very least, and let this president do his job… the way it’s SUPPOSE to be done!

White American’s have to own up to what they’ve done to this nation – and the world – if we’re ever going to do anything to turn things around in this country. Case in point, while adding comments to an article posted on one of my favorite website, National Memo, the computer I was using at the Grand Valley State University computer lab was attacked, or should I say, hacked, as I was saying, or rather writing, and to paraphrase, … we as Democrats, as Liberal/Progressives, don’t need to think like conservatives and drive ‘wedges’ or anything anywhere! Our ideology is all about the citizenry, equality, truth and being maturity, in the process of responsibly owning and managing a Democracy. White voters not seeing it as such, have again fallen into the trap of racism laid by conservatives, painting (President) Obama as some ‘Black-male-terror-to-be-feared, when they (White voters) are just now realizing they’ve again, been made complete fools of.  Voting for conservatives in 2000, 2002, 2004, meant those votes were directly responsible for the destruction of the nation – like it or not.  Then, again in 2010 and 2014, voting against restoration, reconstruction and rebuilding of the nation their past votes represented, in the actual destruction of the nation originally, by again voting ‘AGAINST’ your best interests (i.e., President Obama/Liberal & Progressives/Democrats), in the two Mid-Term elections since, just because conservatives said he was ‘bad,’ and media money hypnotized you (White people) – in BOTH elections – to believe that ‘that Black guy in the White House’ was no good and not to be trusted – under ‘ANY’ circumstance!  It only came to pass because it was only money and corporate media played and replayed the same message, over and over, until it became so!

The article, by John Stoehr, titled Keystone, Patriotism And The White Working Class (see it at: http://www.nationalmemo.com/keystone-patriotism-white-working-class/ ), began as a call for all Americans to pay attention to the upcoming deadline for authorization of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which if it becomes a reality, will deliver the very worst and dirtiest petroleum imaginable (although we have yet to reach the absolute bottom of the petroleum reserves barrel yet, so the worst may still be yet to come, considering the chemical composition of Canadian tar sands petroleum that will course the length of the XL Pipeline). The processing itself will require more water and additional chemicals, in breaking down the tar sands petroleum, into eventually, a usable grade of fuel for the global consumer.

Mr. Stoehr then quickly shifted gears to the tragic plight of Democrats having lost precious support among so many White, middle and poor, working class voters during each Mid-Term election, since 2010. And it’s not even so much that they lost such traditionally steadfast demographics, but the issue is more how they lost that support! That White Americans in fact, were duped into this, as a long-term strategy, to not just turn on Democrats, but eventually, Obama himself, by the 2012 Presidential elections. But it goes far deeper…

Conspiracy To Treason And Vice Versa

Since the Civil (or more distinctly, Human) Rights era, White Americans certainly understood the plight of Black Americans and the inhuman reckoning faced daily in the Jim Crow h

American South and the complicit American North of the nation. It would take a joint, national and unified effort to undo centuries of oppression, but it was meaningless, once money stealthily moved into the picture and our politics slowly rightward.

Mr. Storhr told a tender story of a father – a long-haul steel driver and no doubt, Union member. While not mentioned directly and from the history of the period, his mother appears to have been a stay-at-home mom, as this being one of the more lucrative trades, afforded families to be able to rely on a single income of such magnitude.

This was around the 1980’s, as the narrative gives a glimpse of the times being categorically anti-government, as well as anti-military, which was the pervasive mood of the country during this period. As a consequence, we can see that the nation learned nothing in the interim, instead, shifting in an ever wrong direction, voting increasingly Republican with the psychic terror tactics again working against White American’s and inducing fears of some imaginary Black (drug-war spill-over into White suburbs) or Arab (terror attacks on servicepersons) menace – somewhere out there – ready to reach out and kill in the blink of an eye. What was not paid attention to was the fact that competent, coherent government was practiced the whole of the 1980’s by Democrats, as a check against the paranoia of the money and power elites of the nation, who feared the shifting demographic landscape would eventually look the way it would in the 1990’s. That with the obvious consequences of education being that it was indeed the great socio-economic equalizer – and then, in the 1990’s, it literally coming to pass. Middle Class and poor working class American’s of races, cultures, gender and age groups were perfectly fine with these developments and got along perfectly fine, during this period. The unease was reflected in the push-back against Clinton, making the opposition not about policy of economics or even ideology, but rather his personal morals and then, tying them to his associations with those people – people of color, we should make no mistake!

There was a desperation underneath all of this opposition, if reading Mr. Storhr essay carefully. We have the right-wing anti-government initiative, which was all about a pushback against giving stuff (or more precisely, rights, freedoms, liberties, equality and justice, to Americans as a birthright, but denied for centuries, even after the Emancipation of slaves and the Civil War) to those people. Reagan’s imagined welfare queen comes to mind. Along with that came attacks on labor unions, which became the perfect ally to non-White factory and then farm workers, during the 1950’s, into the 1960’s. Education – Public education, that is – became another object of derision, causing waves of violence from coast to coast, with the forced busing and property tax issues again dividing the nation, when it should have been coming together because the legislature, the Constitution and the courts, all working in unison, to make our nations laws uniform and equally applicable in every situation.

But this is where the shift occurred, where our thinking everything was ok, the slow shifting and redistribution of wealth during the 1980’s, would not actually manifest until 2000, when the Supreme Court aligned itself with elites and corporations, in the person and as supportive of George W. Bush. Over the years since the 1970’s, the donor class has exerted extreme muscle in wresting control of our government from us squabbling Middle Class and working class poor buffoons, not paying attention in the least, while the whole of us lost rights, liberties and eventually, control of our government.

I didn’t believe this myself, until I discovered something that came quite as a shock – a report that intricately details how the rich and corporate people (although we know there’s no such thing and if you don’t believe it, ask one (a corporate individual – NOT their paid representative, CEO, lawyer or PR person, but THE actual corporate PERSON!!!) have bribed control of our government from our legislature, judiciary and executive branches of government! Over the course of the same now, 34 years, the tax cuts to only the wealthy and corporations, have been paying, as the report is titled, Stacking the Deck, so that the power will eventually reside only in the hands of the one percent and corporations.

The data stunning in its unambiguous details of specifically how this effort is deliberatively racist, as the impacts are undeniably aimed to harm people of color. The report itself: Stacked Deck: How The Bias In Big Money Political System Undermines Racial Equality, (found at: http://www.demos.org/publication/stacked-deck-how-bias-our-big-money-political-system-undermines-racial-equity) could not be more accurate in analyzing the slow but poisonous trend of making irrelevant, the power of the nation’s broad, diverse and homogenous citizenry, becoming entangled in the same politics of capriciousness cultures, races, genders and age groups, against themselves, in the manner described in the article by John Stoehr.

The reversals, as detailed by the first half of the report, describing how racial equality and the legal remedies of government to correct this crisis, is then followed up by a second report with the same title, and subtitled, … How the Racial Bias in Our Bib Money Political System Undermines Our Democracy and Our Economy, has become therefore, the pivotal issue surrounding the amazing banality possessing the entirety of Americas voting age public. Not knowing what this all means nor how to correct it, what is so horrifying!

Using Mr. Stoehr story-line, of the impact that allowing the XL Pipeline project to move forward as plans, inevitably points our attention in the other direction of why the obsessive determination to continue using fossil fuels, when we have – tabled and shelved and unused – all sorts of Green, renewable energy options that, today, could make our dependency on fossil fuels obsolete with just a few years. Yet we can’t even come to a consensus on this issue, because we don’t have a clear enough understanding of exactly what Global Climate Change is – another issue where our understanding is tortuously dictated – again – by big money media propaganda. In essence now, this is not a problem for Democrats, but rather all live on the planet, if we fail to discontinue using fossil fuels immediately. Because what will our politics look like should we go even another 50 years, pursuing both courses that our energy and political policies are on a catastrophic course heading?

The Death Of Democracy – The Death Of Earth

While rank and file Democrats and sound-thinking, reasonable conservatives know what’s at stake in the climate debate, many are paralyzed by the bribery condoned, forbidding them to act – let alone speak. This is where the racial issues come into play, as White voters feel traitorous should they side with non-White voters on any issue even remotely reasonable, intelligent or racially relative. Education is currently under the same money influence, with Charter Schools robbing Public Schools nation-wide of gravely deprived funding, at a time when all of our children need the very best education they can get, so that should we fail, they will at least have a fighting chance to coordinate solutions among the whole of their numbers, to apply the knowledge gained through a full and comprehensive education. This is not a matter, as the article pointed out, of how Democrats will reach White voters, but whether or not they will use simple common sense in realizing they and their progeny likewise, are doomed to a slow and miserable demise, should they not make the choices NOW to correct their OWN voting errors and reengage the political system as instructed in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

First, a quick look at the terrain is essential in order to even think about moving forward. Because if historical memory serves correctly, the Human Rights initiatives, linked together with the anti-war movement, the ecological movement and the much ignored, but no less crucial anti-imperialist movement – which was also an outgrowth of our own American Human Rights initiative, all were derailed by the Vietnam War. Where we are mere inches from the point we were EXACTLY 50 years ago! How can we NOT even see the parallels? Just when major decisions are demanded of our legislature, executive and judiciaries, they’ve all failed, because we have not yet realized our citizen-control and power has been short-circuited.

What Mr. Stoehr forgot to mention was how convoluted our political system has become as a result of big money initiatives to dilute and obstruct voting in poor and non-White communities nation-wide. Because of income, wealth and racial inequality, the whole of the bottom 89% of the nation’s ENTIRE CITIZENRY is under distinct duress. Then, there is the militarization of our police and their violently repressive tactics, purely intended to intimidate, harass and brutalize the public – especially non-Whites, non-conservatives, outspoken dissidents (such as myself, being just tonight, in the process of commenting on Mr. Stoehr’s own article, was my on-line access halted by the illegal and immoral surveillance I’m continually under specifically because of essays such as THIS!!!), or protesters of the inequality that was an outgrowth of the manufactured economic crash and depression of 2008.

The whole of the citizenry lost everything. The rich and corporations were the only demographics and entities to escape any harm at all! That should tell our White fellow citizens something about what we’re facing collectively, as a nation. The wealthy are in their own shut-off world and with the money poured into media, the propaganda has the intended results of dividing the collective minds of citizens against even utilizing government for the purpose it was originally intended – to be a check against the oppressive wealth and power of rich elites and corporations.

This is why it was and remains so critical to underfund Public education, so that neighborhoods schools are unable to teach the actual and true history of the American Revolution, the causes and consequences of the Civil War and why the Union achieved an honorable and just victory and any other notions are intentionally wrong, for the sake of, once again, dividing Americans against themselves. But we are so lost after these last 40 years of miseducation, as an imperative of the wealthy, to not just stop paying taxes toward equitable education and outcomes in White, non-White and diverse, mixed communities, equally. Bearing this our are graphs of the report mentioned earlier, showing the disparity of understanding and then, how their large donations move their feelings and opinions into reality – no matter what the general public thinks or desires. Understand now, that OUR Constitutional mandates are dictated by broad public consensus. We no longer even read the open paragraph of the Constitution the same, as a result of conflicts over White and non-White interpretations of life in America – no matter the savage levels of poor and Middle Class sufferings across racial lines!

I encourage every American to not only read this report, but recommend it to family, friends, neighbors and strangers, when and where possible. The consequences of not acting immediately will only result in a hastening to the destruction of all life on this planet. I matters not a damn whether we believe in Global Climate Change or not. Profit-driven lust and our obsession for cheap energy will be our doom if we fail to comprehend what conservatives mean to do to the population. Cheating us out of our Social Security and our birth-right obligations and responsibilities over our Democracy should be an insult to every American. Particularly because it has an unmistakably and exclusively racist nuance to it.

It was in fact conservative voters, along with frustrated, excluded non-White voters who have gotten the nation into the mess we’re in. They owe the rest of us a particular debt by helping undo the fiasco that has overtaken us over the last 40 – plus years. It is now far too late to even think about racist loyalties and owing what to whom (in the case of sympathizing with the rich in this case), during this – a brutal and unquestioned class war, that only the rich are waging, but that we, the non-rich, are too scared of hurting the feelings of the demographic of the very rich, who, coincidentally, are determined to kill us all – including THEMSELVES – should we fail to stop them! Remembering whose Democracy this is will not only reinforce your understanding, but also your own determination to initiate recalls of legislators whose only interest in self-enrichment and handing power over to those who mean the entirety of the non-wealthy, the most deliberate harm imaginable. Don’t let one more day pass without every American not determining to act on behalf of each other, our nation, our Democracy, and every other living thing on the planet…

Update: Thursday, February 19, 2015 –  Before I was even done with this article last night, I went back to National Memo’s website only to find that the article had already been taken down!  After only two hours!!! This is a serious issue and American’s had better clear they minds and souls of the foolishness that is ripping this nation apart and has us at the precipice of global annihilation – DIRECTLY BECAUSE of our continued use of fossil fuels – when alternatives are readily available.

The article, by John Stoehr, was/IS a fine piece of journalism and should be widely read.  But this is the terror facing the nation however, in the police-state suppression of thought, ideas and expressions of TRUTH we’re otherwise hiding from.  And more often now, by threat and intimidation.  Being a supposed Liberal website, National Memo has some explaining to do to it’s readers, on why this timely and crucial article was pulled and whose decision it was to pull it…  r21 –

In trying to look up just exactly who is Cecily McMillan, I was only able to get to a few articles on her and then, quite suddenly, my computer froze!!!  I quickly shut down the page, but not before I realized I’m no doubt, being hacked at that very moment by those secret eyes that want to know all, see all and keep us ALL under strict and careful watch.  No matter.  We already know who she is, but from that, what do we know?  She was spied on, set-up, brutalized, convicted on phony charges, and now, faces a significant jail term, for a woman who, while a graduate student having had no prior history of violence, is being railroaded into that anarchist, leftist imagery that both titillates and terrifies those already afraid Democracy.  Those, who are of course, conservative and already desperately wanting to believe the worst of people, illegal and secret spying creates the opportunities to make that worst come true.  These are the people I myself, am confronting daily.  These are also the same people who vote Republican conservative and have made and maintain the status possible of the police state world that protects real, calculating, cold sociopathic criminals, of whom Cecily and others of the Occupy Movement protested against.  While simultaneously, illegally crushing dissenting voices and protest actions, in opposing just such kleptomanic criminality, our franchise of ownership slowly dissipating, we are slowly being locked out of our own government!

Overwhelmed by the mere mention of such bizarro-world realities, those too busy to read, pay attention or even think that something is wrong with the very nature of crushing and obliterating the initiative of dissent, simply shut down!  In a Democracy no less…  And even while Ms. McMillan is no one’s criminal, her choice to protest the criminal thievery on Wall Street, which led to the 2008 economic collapse and global Depression, is the true faith of a patriot with the virtue to dismiss laziness of simply looking the other way after such crimes were committed and the culprits were able to walk away free.  And as a reminder, to date, only low-level, relatively uninvolved participants – and a handful at best – have been convicted and no monies returned to the 10’s of millions of victims who lost homes, savings, pensions and futures, as a result of a criminality so all-encompassing, that not even regulators nor their agencies of which they serve, have had the courage to do their duties and prosecute those they do know for certain, were directly complicit in the economic collapse of 2008.  As leaders of this, our Liberal/Progressive government, our imperative was, is and remains to commit to proactive measures before criminality and lawlessness occur.  Being prevented from doing so now, in this authoritarian, conservative police-state, isn’t just the move to suppress citizen opposition, but also activating our vibrant Democracy into action at a moments notice!

How this could all could be allowed to occur is probably the most mystifying part of this whole ordeal.  How does a cop move around in a crowd without notice, walks up to a protester, fondles her, gets justifiably elbowed for touching – molesting, by any other descriptive – a woman, in a way that would otherwise have gottem him FIRED, under any any other circumstance!  The fact that Ms. McMillan had already been under on-going, non-stop surveillance, has been considerably overlooked, as it’s completely impossible to believe this officer didn’t know who she was.  Or doesn’t anyone read the headlines?  How do people think her presence drew THAT sort of attention?  She was just a common, face-in-the-crowd protester of no real significance.  An ordinary concerned citizen, in commission of her rights as an American, in a public square, where Democracy is supposed to happen!  Or was she somewhere she shouldn’t have been?  Was she consorting with those under some type of real or actual criminal suspicion?  Most importantly, were there people spying on her, giving information about her?  Was her online activities, like many millions of other American’s, being continually monitored, knowing what information she, like many other American’s like myself, watched for an opening to exploit, while our legislators themselves, sit in fear for their own or the safety others?  Is this why no investigations have yet been opened as to what is going on our nations streets, with this criminal collusion between police and private contractors?  In direct defiance to the Constitution and Bill of Rights?  And why are we more outraged about this whole vile affair?

A reading of the Declaration, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Federalist Papers, all note that we are the sole, exclusive heirs of the Revolution and subsequent government that threw out the economic and military tyrants and dictators that did to those citizens of the colonies, what the wealthy, corporations and their private contracting armies are now doing to the citizenry of this nation.  Our response?  Nothing, if persons like Ms. McMillan, others in the movement that has been effectively silenced and persons such as myself, being intimidated via having been unemployed and sinking deeper into destitution and deprivation for the better part of period I’ve been blogging (2010), are hunted down and violated, by secret police and their agents, while elected/appointed government officials are bullied and too fearful to act in ways their offices’ mandates says they must.  Ms. McMillan, upon seeing pictures and video of the day of the original altercation, looks to have been under the influence of a drug of the type that was likewise, secretly laced in my food or on clothing or bedding, in my apartment about this same time.  My speculations stem from a relationship I was in at the time, which had grown estranged, due to my increased agitation and combativeness, that had never before been part of my character, as I’m sure it had not been part of Ms. McMillan’s.  And like Ms. McMillan, I too, was provoked into a series of steadily escalating incidents, where for no reason, I was drawn into disputes with the woman that, while I cared for deeply, had no rational foundation to behave in ways that were completely out of my normal charactor.

Why would a citizen, who may also have been victimized as well, by the 2008 Depression, have reason to argue the just merits of the Occupy Democracy initiative, with Ms. McMillan?  That is completely irrational, knowing the devastation caused by a premeditated and all-incompassing institutional theft, which in the end, removed trillions of dollars that just 10 years previous, had created the greatest economic comeback – just from the presence of those same trillions of dollars being economically active – and over the shortest time frame, engineered by the most intellectually gifted President (Clinton, as some Americans like to forget!) of the 20th century!  Similarly, why too, would a woman who claimed to love me, attempt to cause agitation, emotionally pushing and pulling against me, coming into and out of my life, causing unnecessary mental and emotional, while knowing full well I was already under enough stress from school, running a business which assisted inner-city teens to stay in High School long enough to graduate, all while working part-time, just to make a make ends meet, in the very teeth of the worst of the 2008 Depression!  This was also the period, late 2011 and going into 2012, I began to suspect someone was coming into my apartment without authorization.  My diet and exercise regimine keep me in optimal health, so I know precisely when something isn’t right with my body.  One day, in the summer of 2012, while in class, I had an episode of near-complete mental incapacity.  I couldn’t concentrate, focus or even comprehend what my professor was lecturing on, or to even take notes!  This sudden and never before occurring condition was so debilitating, but after realizing later, that it was my food and/or items (potentially) in my apartment, and after ceasing to leave any more food than a single meal, this condition never again recurred!

Another precaution was that, even though I would, on several occasions, set up a web cam to covertly record my apartment while I was away, nothing… until my computer was turned off one day.  I know this because I would check and double check to make sure it was on, each time before leaving my apartment.  It was hidden, so that only an electronic devise able to detect my computers digital signature, would have been the only means possible to know it was recording, as exactly where in my apartment it was while doing so.  For those who don’t have these sort of instincts or are physically in tune with themselves or their surroundings, nothing would seem out of the ordinary, and so ingesting some such substance would go unnoticed, until the consequences of their reactive side effects manifest in combative and easily excited by provocations in such ways that landed Ms. McMillan in jail and myself out of a relationship (thankfully, in hindsight), after falling victim to violations of the simple provision of the rights of privacy and protection against unwarranted searches and tampering with a citizens property and effects.

Which contractors are using drugs and what types, are something our law makers should be seeking answers for – NOW!  What areas of operations and the assignments they’ve been on, nation-wide, are also issues our law makers should be pursuing.  Also, what information is there that ties police forces – nationally – to these secret operations, are something Congress and the Senate, as well as the President himself, need to be involved in, as to getting to the bottom of the lawlessness of which law enforcement and security contractors are conducting secret operations in cities across the country.  While there a prima facie justification claim here, no such defense can be found for terrorizing ordinary, law-abiding, innocent of ANY WRONG-DOING WHATEVER – citizens, in their PUBLIC or PRIVATE lives, as well as in EXERCISE of our legal, Constitutional rights of speech, gathering or seeking REDRESS of criminal wrong-doing against citizens and the state itself!

As a consequence and being already acutely divided, but even now, more in jeopardy than any point in the nations history because of the technological advances of snooping on our intimate privacy, our majority mandate is compromised by our lack of knowledge about our inherent authority over our government, as the citizenry so named at the very outset of the Constitution, we’ve literally endangered ourselves by our reluctance to step it up and take command of this situation, even as it spirals wildly out of control!  We, the people… are NOT entitled to cowardice – whether at the citizen or the elective office capacity.  So we would do well to TREAT THIS as the big THING that it IS!  But WHEN America?…

It is supremely ironic that we are here – AGAIN! – exactly, 43 years almost to the day when we had to wrest control of our government BACK from the tyrannically conservative Richard Nixon.  Within years, we would run him out of the White House in a futile attempt to restore Constitutional order – if only for a short time – back for the nations citizens and our government.    A brief moment of less than a decade.  And while many American’s were too young to remember these events, the lessons were wasted teaching moments that all too often have slipped away and out of our collective memory.  That in itself is the tragedy.  But even worse, it has been occurring far too often of late.  The question is now, what do we plan to do about it?  How many more  hits on our nation and Democracy, will we the PEOPLE of God – of faith and of the longest enduring, most resilient Democracy in human history, before we jointly determine its OUR RESPONSIBILITY – to defend, with our honor, treasure – our lives if and when necessary?

When a young lady in New York is placed under surveillance, and while attending an Occupy rally, is fondled by law enforcement, concealing his identity and then, only after her natural reaction is to defend herself from being accosted, is placed under arrest and charged, after striking blindly at an unseen person behind (see: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/occupy-activist-be-sentenced-police-assault) her , this is terror.

When an elderly citizen takes in his son – who also happens to be a Liberal/Progressive activist writer and who too, is under surveillance – who has no place to live in the dead of the harshest Michigan winter in living memory, an active, engaged and independent 93 year old, then quickly deteriorates – both physically and cognitively – because someone has been coming into his house while no one was there, putting substances in the food, on clothing, on bedding, releasing bugs (of the micro-drone variety), whose bite injects substances which cause mental and physical deterioration’s, that is terror!

When after an extreme and near complete civic and institutional collapse, a nation, knowing it needs to restructure its entire way of conducting the business of government, is prevented from doing so, by elements outside, as well as inside that same government, stand directly in opposition and in the way of a new president and even before announcing a single policy initiative toward the restorations necessary for the re-establishment of law, order and governmental and regulatory transparency, to job markets, business, banking and investments, education, ensuring racial, gerontological, gender and LGBT rights, international diplomacy, environmental restorations and assistance to the elderly, disabled and the poor (victimized by that same collapse of society), that IS terror!

Future President James Madison asked a young, reflective nation, after a time of difficult war and hardships of rebuilding, in that intense several months between October 27, 1787 to August 16, 1788, to think long and hard.  To think deeply.  To consider the “… sum or quantity of power…” we, the people, of a not yet nation, were about  to bequeath, or to “… vest in the government… ” not yet even in existence.  Federalist 41 would continue walking a trusting citizenry down a path lit bright with hope, anticipation and the ambition of the affirmative possibilities that, as Madison challenged, would they, at that moment of flux, to we now in this modern age, as their directly descended progeny, know with absolute certainty, if “…any powers transferred to the general government, be unnecessary or improper…?”  A second question which followed, was “… whether the entire mass of them (that conglomeration of ‘powers’) be dangerous to the portion of jurisdiction left in the several states…?”  It would not be more than 180 years before those who would vote for Richard Nixon, did ignore such dire considerations.

As the first United States President ever to unleash the unrestrained terror of secret, reckless, punitive government upon the people – the citizens who voted for George W. Bush then answer back with a resounding and emphatical NO!… such horrors and terrors imposed upon not JUST the people, but would likewise, defile ALL future governments, as we see these horrors and terrors of the Nixon years, the Bush years, now infecting the administration of President Barack Obama, with the disease of the same terror, the same tyranny, of secretive and omnipotently OPPRESSIVE governance, when he swore an oath to end it, there is an undeniable crisis with the system of government that supposedly has built-in safeguards to deflect such sabotage!  But the system has failed, as people are no longer safe – to congregate, find safe shelter and food, to rely on stable government in times of crisis or have access to direct representatives, because the voice of large donations drowns out the voices of millions of voters and corporate personified influences intimidates and bullies elected and appointed officials to the point they fear for their seats, their lives and the lives of the families and loved ones!  As a result, the confusion and fear of nearly broken citizenry, prevents them from even the ambition of voting in favor of a better, more positive and productive direction.  But we were warned this would be the case if we became complacent, lazy and detached from our Civic Cultural duties as owners and managers of this – a peoples Democracy collective.  But no one reads.  No one pays attention.  And as a result, after years of disengagement, an entire nation awakens to find themselves locked out of what was once theirs – their own government!  Again, it didn’t have to turn out this way, as we were told in the year the first generation of American’s established this republic Democracy, designed withstand any enemy – domestic and foreign.  but this is something new: the enemy is ourselves…

In the 1971 Supreme Court case, The New York Times v. The United States Government, (see:http://www.oyez.org/cases/1970-1979/1970/1970_1873) the Nixon administration essentially tried to argue the case to allow it and the preceding Johnson administrations’ war and domestic terror criminality to stand, in keeping the Pentagon Papers secret and thus, keeping the entire illegal war enterprise hidden, could not stand against the full fury and force of the rule of law, which would have otherwise resulted in those secrets still remaining buried behind that same 43 year old wall of secrecy.  Today, we are facing the same, with the question of how to go forward in the saga of Edward Snowden – the former National Security Agency intelligence analyst, regarding the 99 percent total surveillance spy terror (with – again, the one percent being able to buy their own exclusive liberties and freedoms distinct from those of the rest of the nation) of the American people.

The whole sordid enterprise MUST be exposed and the only way that can and will happen is getting Mr. Snowden before the Senate leadership, with a guarantee of immunity from prosecution, so the entire program, finally, after 13 years – including illegal Section 8 Habeus Corpus violations, from Article I of the Constitution, will be out in the open.  But in order that this end NOW, NO ONE should escape prosecution, who was involved in the carrying out and covering up and blocking investigations, can we assure, unlike in the past, that this madness may ever occur again.  Mr. Snowden alerted us and we should repay is loyalty by ensuring the guilty don’t walk!  No Nixonian pardons!  It must END NOW, so it never happens, ever again!  This habit, if it is to be broken, must happen by our collective resolve, as James Madison proscribed in the first place.  This is how we know who did and did not do their homework, studying the Declaration, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Federalist Papers, and then we would have guarded ourselves years ago, from the prejudices of the unthinking, the wantonly ambitious and covetous criminal-minded conservative.  This Liberal/Progressive government is best managed by a cool and candid people, as James Madison described those of US whose patriotism isn’t some flag lapel pin, abortion opposition or school prayer and creationist advocate, but a people who alloy in themselves… with the purest of human blessings…  This is why reading on ones own is so critical in a Democracy, with such a rich literary history as ours.  James Madison seemed to be, in those days everywhere at once, in keeping a diary of the proceedings during the Constitutional Convention in the summer of 1788 and if we get nothing out of his lessons of that time, it should be this – that the “… choice must always be made, if not of the lesser evil, at least of the GREATER, not the PERFECT good…”

The case of the Nixon monstrosity was totally accidental, as such an occurrence had never taken place.  Reagan’s administration caught us as equally unaware and confused, being in a state of post-Vietnam war weariness, but is also is no excuse.  The Supreme Court majority installing their choice and then the unprecedented moves toward corporatization of every facet of life and politics was our fault and the natural world, our civilization and Democracy are now paying the price that our nations forebearers would be devastated and ashamed of, that we the people, allowed such horrible turns of misfortune, to overtake us so completely and unnecessarily!

The Senate will have to take the lead on this, as they are the only fully functioning and independently autonomous legislative group in Washington now.  They are, with its diverse membership, able to track down which contractors or policing agencies are buying excessive amounts of drugs which have no functional use to its members, as well as tracking down their areas of operations and who they are surveilling.  As we recently learned from a four year, NYPD investigation of Muslims, there was not a single person charged in the entire time of the teams’ secret operations and as peaceful, non-violent groups are being targeted, those same resources are being wasted, if violent and criminal individuals and groups are allowed to thrive, flourish and create mayhem, with impunity.  The Senate must also partner with the President in consolidating greater powers in normalizing and restoring law and order, from the top to bottom of society, in doing what we did 43 years ago, to assure something as simple, but as vital as free speech and assembly was given its Constitutional priorities as intended.

Having lost sight of this imperative, that is all we can depend on, in connecting with the same Divine revelations which inspired the inception of this Democracy, in keeping it as pure, as fresh and as vital, by making the hard choices – as did Edward Snowden, as did Barack Obama, not knowing that either had walked into a rigged game and had done all they could – against these great odds, to uphold their oath to God and country.  We, the PEOPLE let them AND ourselves down, by failing to populate the Senate and Congress with MORE Liberal/Progressives, Democrats and Republicans alike, of the type who sat on the Supreme Court Bench 43 years ago, and told us directly, THEY would uphold the purest spirit of the public good of which every office holder is obliged to carry, who represents every letter and phrase of the nations founding documents in the spirit of the divine and by their actions alone, we of this age, would know what to do to end traditions of evil, that have interloped into our virtuous, pure and ever-affirming Democracy, for all time to come.  Because if we are to utilize EVERY opportunity civilization offers, we must ensure that the way is made clear with faith, virtue and the God-given intelligence and compassion embodied within these God-inspired Democracy structures that have meant the difference between living free and independent as equals.  Read your Declaration, Constitution and Bill of Rights, your Federalist Papers, and then take all that Liberal/Progressive intellect and ambition and VOTE – for a transformed and affirmative America…
