Time Was-Or Is Still-Now!
A letter to the citizens of the United States of America
time was now!?...Was the time then, or is it still now? Once
again, I have been called to write to you all a third time, in as
many decades. People are now talking about the American Dream in
the past tense. Our image as a major world power has once again
been seriously assaulted. Our will as a people, and our confidence
in our government, is again shaken! Have we been hijacked again
or are we just waking up?
longer can we trust our government to do the right thing--to protect
us and keep us safe. (#1)
Within less than one year, our confidence in our economy takes a
big "hiccup" and in the "blink of an eye," we
find ourselves knee deep in wars which, of course, were not even
subjects, or issues of our country's recent presidential
campaign. We hear our commander in chief define an objective for
this war so broad; can it ever be achieved? Or, is that its purpose?
Is this our elite's pledge to wage war on any suspect anywhere,
paying little attention to matters of culture, sovereignty or international
law, and further alienating ourselves in the world of nations? Is
this truly what is necessary to preserve "freedom?"
is not a war against terrorism. This is a war of ideologies
and Principles! And what are our principle(s)? How did we
become defendants and "victims" so quickly? Have we pawned
our virtues and principles over the decades for slaughter
at the heels of a New World Order edict? Should other
cultures roll over too, and yield to our Government's unilateral
dictates? In the alternative, are there principles that are absolute,
and complete, which are not just relative and always changing with
the climate of people's opinion that should be dusted
off and applied now?
are the long-term consequences to closing doors on accountable citizens'
rights to "freedom?" They did not attack freedom;
"they" attacked what they believed was the "enemy
within." Our leaders cry out for leadership abroad.
But, are we reading 'leadership' at home that in fact doesn't exist?
Did we win the "cold war" only to set ourselves
up and lose "the war" that counts; the "hot"
war(s)? We will know who is loosing the "war on terrorism"
by which side delays the reporting of it's losses to its 'own.'
Our nation is not war ready! Are we truly on higher
does our jurisdiction begin and where does it end? What is the principle
we are using for our retaliation?..."He/they hit me/us first?"
This is an explanation a child is apt to give his mother when she
is forced to break up a sandbox squabble. Does it look this way
to us because we are not one of them, and if we were one
of "them," would we perceive it differently? What is terrorism,
but unwarranted violence upon the innocent...? When special
interests (politics) screw with international rules of law,
and terrorize other cultures, conflict results. If we are not pleased
with the "consequences" of our wants, we should
consider correcting the causes of our "wants."
Are we being diverted from the very principles that would provide
long-term security by being "sold" attitudes and
hysteria for the benefit of a few? We seek comfort
by mocking what we fear. "Attitude," without guidance
from sound principles, is a loaded gun in the hands of a
we use a club to kill the tic(s) on an abandoned dog? Could
we injure the dog before we kill the tic? Will other dogs come to
his aid? Have we even found the tic(s) we claimed are responsible
for this recent tragedy? Desecrating each other's shrines will only
escalate the violence and memorialize hurt. Our costs continue to
escalate, easily reaching a trillion dollars and beyond in just
a few months. And we haven't even found the tic---or have we? The
universe is an organism. We live in a closed system.
What goes around will most likely come back around!
If not in our life time, in our childrens'. It's only a matter of
will not succeed by "thugging" others with our
perceptions of right and wrong, for we lack a rudder in the
water ourselves. Where are our "higher ground" principles?
Have we sold those principles for a potage of short-term
benefits and privileges? Do we waste our time and resources
politicking over our egos? Are we any longer 'worthy stewards'
of our Father's land and wisdom?
because we may think we are right, doesn't mean we are. Just because
we may be richer, doesn't mean we are wiser. And, just because we
may be bigger, does not mean we are stronger. Before we hunt down
the "wolf" who threatens our home, we must ask ourselves
why our home is under attack in the first place! Human beings are
a specie that make all of their choices based upon their perceptions.
The foreboding questions; who and what do we allow to skew
our perceptions? Where do we go from here? Do any of us care? What
other consequences are we due from endorsing "double standards"
at home and abroad?
longer can we trust our elected officials to tell us the truth.
(#6) Our perception of our government has certainly changed
while we've been struggling to believe in our elected representatives!
In 1958, the Institute of Social Research in Michigan, together
with The New York Times-with CNN joining them in 1990-have
conducted a poll every two years of about sixteen to seventeen hundred
people in the U.S. Each time, they asked the same question, "In
the time of need, do you believe the government will do the right
thing by you?" In 1958, 72% of those responding said "most
of the time" and 19% said "always." The numbers have
changed in the last 40 years! In 1996, only 17% said "most
of the time," and less than 1% said "always." Most
civilized countries reach a point of revolution or civil war long
before the confidence of the people in their government has
reached the low tide that ours has.
long as "they" get us to recycle our greed, "their"
culpability remains hidden and unaccounted for. Where is accountability
in America? The stories we have been getting from our government
for too many years are something besides the truth. We must develop
a sense of what is false. Seeing only what this Administration
and others wants us to see, and admitting to our citizens only
that which it is forced to admit, is not only a problem for
these usurpers, but for each of us. We condemn others for
not being consistent and keeping their "word" while we
'excuse' ourselves from having to abide by the same principle. Can
we do any better now, than wobble, and flounder in the world
of nations and get tough on U.S. CITIZENS?
disease festers deep within us, for Iran, Iraq-and now Afghanistan-are
only symptoms. We can look back on the last 40 years to see the
results of this policy of secrecy and distortion. The more the government
we elected ignored and stonewalled the sore of Vietnam, the
more and more our credibility suffered. Our country still bears
the scars that war caused. It seemed like overnight, the United
States confessed to a military blunder, misjudgment of a regime
and, most importantly, to a philosophy of professing righteousness
through deceit. Vietnam succeeded in shaking our nation's very moral
"fiber" and seriously injuring and breaking our
inherent trust in our government.
we look at Watergate, we see a similar defeat caused by the stonewall
attitude of our nation's administration. Again, in 1979, our leaders
told us Iran's revolution was going to be short-lived and Ayatollah
Khomeini would fall from power in weeks. The regime of Saddam Hussein
would certainly topple under the brutal forces of our Gulf War armies
in '91. We proclaimed we had won the war! We even celebrated
victory at home with countless "welcome home the troops"
parades. Today, Iran remains just as unpredictable and, of course,
Mr. Hussein still remains. Just 10 years later, we continue to push
the envelope of completing a war we now realize we didn't win. The
credibility of what was supposedly right, was later determined to
be wrong. Arrogancy usually has its consequences.
Is this the path we are insisting to take once again, before we
find our rudder in the world of nations? Can our beloved
country afford to be wrong again? When will we be right ? When do
we learn? Do we care?
can we remedy this situation? Our "true strength" lies
within our ability to live honest and accountable lives. The truth
and our desire and innate ability to promote love, health and well-being
throughout the world will succeed. But, when we allow our government(s)
to be encouraged by "special interests," to hide and distort
the truth, only failure will result!
must right itself with its self and its neighbors, now! Others who
control and influence our nation's power must also come forth and
tell us the truth. Heads, in the West, will resign. Religions
and fictions will collapse on the shoulders of their "false
messengers" until We The People get the message,
act and turn this 'human tragedy' around! Could it be that Vietnam,
Watergate, the Iranian, the Iraqi and now the Afghanistan crises
are intricately planned creations of financial and cartel magnates?
Or, could it be, we are doing or letting this be done to ourselves?
Are the beliefs and attitudes we have created in pursuing
our technological wants, now so far removed from the real
elements of human rights and love for our earthly brothers,
that they are no longer appropriate? And now, will we drive ourselves
into an endless swamp of shifting principles and ambiguous
and contradictory policies? Is our "pleasure seeking society"
preparing our grandchildren to bear more burdens, pay more
taxes, and have fewer freedoms?
longer can we pay corporations to distort the truth. (#2)
Where is corporate accountability? Labor and Ownership
has become a vehicle for taxation in America and its uses
are now generally a matter of privilege. Today, fictions are permitted
to manipulate the masses' minds unbridled, and alter the
'self-images' of certain citizens, while predicting their behavior.
Other than for greed, where are the virtues and principles that
will sustain us in the long haul? Could furthering the relentless
pursuit of "capitalism" disguised as a "New World
Order" be considered by some as a form of terrorism? There
is no sanctity in greed! Was the time then, or is it still
now, for citizens to rise above their government's special interests
that put the "tax value" of a citizen above the human
value of a citizen? Is there still a place for "principle-based
leadership" in American politics? Will speed serve us
as well? Doors are closing on U. S. CITIZENS and they are not opening
the time now to hold our representatives and corporate CEO's
accountable to the principles of universal accountability?
Let us realize once and for all that if, in making a profit,
it requires another or our planet to suffer, no "profit"
of any kind is realized. Instead, the suffering accumulates like
steam in a confined kettle. Sooner or later the greedy profiteer
will hear his brother's and planet's cry. Those who come to their
aid with respect, caring and understanding will be forgiven for
their deeds, but those who deceive, and evade will reap the results
of their choices: crime, welfare, illness, endless conflict, even
if they are Goliath! The earth will continue to shake
and skies smoke, for our planet will too react to the 'cries'
and the dis-ease of the afflicted.
couldn't we adopt the higher principle of universal accountability
which would set the pace for groups and nations to follow, then
wage endless wars to preserve our form of "hypocrisy democracy"
as our so-called way of life? Those not on board with the
'us' attitude; "If you are not for 'freedom,' you are
against us"... are our enemies?! Wow! Are we too blind to recognize
that all nation states have mandates to respect each other's sovereignty,
regardless of an individual citizen's criminal activities? We have
no excuses now! Before "terrorism" we had Principle...and
the world looked up to us for our principles! Our enemies
have said, "It is not the American people we despise, it is
their government!" Could our support for unlawful corporations
and the special interest initiatives they promote, be translated
into someone else's 'terrorism?'
in "human rights," domestic or foreign, are materialized
through an alchemic process of understanding cultures and the ideologies
and principles that support them with reverence for all life.
This cultural exchange should not be abused by the special
interests of fictions. Have the corporations we created become
our brothers' feared despots? Was this their ultimate purpose or
has our greed permitted these hungry animals to go astray?
longer can we trust producers of consumer goods not to endanger
us, our planet and our children. (#3) For decades
now, we have insisted that manufacturers disclose the ingredients
and components in the products we consume and use. But, few of us
understand the 'words' and their implications. The mass marketers'
of drugs, which but just a few years ago, were prohibited from television
advertising, spend more words now on the numerous 'side effects'
of their exotic synthetics than on their benefits. Regardless
of how they convince us of the 'necessities' we go along with these
corporate schemes and look the other way. The effects of these go
otherwise unaccounted for by the manufacturers and the doctors that
peddle their wares.
In observing the effects of our decisions to acquiesce to public
opinion or media hype we can see how we are continually accepting
less. Today, few can afford a natural 'vine grown' tomato. Between
insecticides and pesticides, the rest of us are left with few choices.
Caring for the sick has also metamorphosed into a hopeless disease
itself. Hard data tells us one thing-but the rules and regulations
in place, to apply to the ill and misfortuned in a cost efficient
and confident way, is constantly compromised.
For example, the American Cancer Society publishes a large poster,
often hung in Oncologist's offices which reads, "Eat Your Vegetables,"
and identifies specific vegetables the Society knows cancer patients
should eat. Not only are the Oncologists in many regions prohibited
(or discouraged) in instructing their patients with these words
but, the synthetic drugs they readily provide destroy the natural
benefits derived from eating 'your vegetables.' What are we letting
others do to us? Do we care?
policy and so-called principle of what is good for business
is good for the nation, etc., is forever flawed. All seems fair
in a technologically driven economy, but where is all of this taking
us? What are we becoming? What are we letting others make
us do to ourselves and to our planet? Given the "rubble"
we are leaving future generations to deal with, they will certainly
be tempted to look at us with disdain
as a self-indulgent society
that left them with unbearable social and environmental "woe."Let
us not forget the universe is an organism, our organism! What goes
around will come around! Pinocchio did not like being in the belly
of the whale! Do we still remember?
individuals, "-don't despair-" they tell us but, our nexuses
join us to a type of "New World Order Slavery" that keeps
our foot to the pedal, and our 'pedal to the metal'. Most
people are unable to take time to think of the options and choices
that are otherwise before us in not volunteering and in not going
along with the "status quo." Our choices and options of
"un-volunteering" are seldom ever exercised. "They"
put a carrot before us and we follow! Today fictions are
manipulating the American mind
changing the meaning of our
Father's words and pushing the envelope and exploiting the '
human rationale'. Where are we letting others take us?
When do we say no more, and mean it? Was the time then, or is it
still now to oppose this modern day slavery? Remember, we
create our own time!
longer can we allow courts of law to operate void of responsible
jurisprudence. (#8) So what is this new U. S. justice? On
what proven principles does it rely for authority? We talk
about justice, yet we put a legal system in its place; yet another
example of the "double standard" we go along with.
Career-bent prosecutors and the "system" are so self-serving,
they can't stop and deal with such trivial pursuits as "justice."
We talk about 'Rights' but few of us have a leg to stand on. Ask
any seasoned criminal defense attorney! The time is now to
respond to our higher self rather than our lower self! We
must reward accountability - not 'the victim' - at home and abroad!
We must nurture abundance through applying universal accountability,
not by "punishing!"
question authority has, in a fortnight, become "politically
incorrect." If we are not extremely careful, 9/11 will
forever provide our government the excuse at bar to expand
abusing its citizens and sell them on all the reasons
lawmakers and law enforcement should not be restricted by any constitutions
to infringe upon our rights. The more we go along,
the more rules and regulations we take with us. According to some
estimates, more than six million U.S. CITIZENS are already behind
bars in America, and more than 3,700 are on death row. More children,
each year, are tried as adults and parents continue to escape accountability.
Many must have a prescription just to cope! Others predict
these numbers may double in just a few years. Is freedom
becoming less healthy? We are becoming less free, because
we are always sold the "necessities."
dialogue is suffocated by prejudgment and materialism so deep, our
genetics are altered. In spite of how smart or educated we
think we are at times, our culture has been seduced into materialism
by greed and a false perception of "ownership". Dumbing
and drugging us down distances us from accountability and enslaves
us to the very 'body' which was supposed to protect us.
Few can or will see into tomorrow, and ask, "-what are the
long-term consequences of volunteering, based upon our perception
of our short-term needs?" We must be willing to invest the
time to understand how and why we think the way we do, and how we
let others think for us. A big plan...a big responsibility! ...Was
the time then, or is it still now for us humans to adopt
a new ideology, "crash proof" our lives and open a new
dimension for all mankind. Do we still have "freedom of choice"
in America? Can we still say no?
what point should the people of Egypt have said 'no' to killing
the male babies in Moses' day? At what point should the people
of colonial America have said 'no' to King George? At what point
should the people of Germany have said 'no' to Hitler? At what
point do we say 'no' to despots and Royalty in our day,
when they take our Constitution, our labor, our property, our children
and our dignity by making us dependent upon "fictions,"
rather than the truth. Although the search for truth in the domains
of history and international events is carried on and constantly
repeated in endless duels and suffering between the sense of reality
of one's ethics of right and wrong, and the inventive and imaginative
power of the other, there are no reasons good enough now
to continue to 'dumb down' our citizens. We need all the help we
can preserve. We cannot spend ourselves out of this crisis! The
Time Is Now! Tomorrow will be too late!
longer can we deny our knowing yet struggle to specialize! (#4)
The more we "look," the less we know, it seems. Wisdom
is making practical application of what we know but, we must settle
in on the prerequisites of "principle-based" policies
first; then our 'security' will be embodied in our living without
relying on double standards and 'paper tiger' campaign promises.
It is not enough to know everything we think we need to know!
It will only serve us and others if practical application is made
of our 'true knowing.' Security, in part, lies in
our ability to be self-sufficient. However, our minds seek security
in things, property, in a name, in a characteristic activity, and
so on. When we understand the magnitude of these "security
blankets," we see how this "set-up" brings insecurity
someone moves our cheese, our so-called security can
vanish overnight. "Bogeymen" are everywhere! Then, we
clutch to the very usurpers who moved our
cheese! Real "education" (our learning) only takes place
when change occurs in our attitudes, actions, and our way of life.
In spite of our common sense and our common law heritage,
we continue to focus on minutia and miss the "bigger picture."
In specializing, we get adapted to having fewer choices, taking
more for granted and getting scared easier. What we do with our
fears will ultimately define who we are!
we be concerned that "they" (the fictions we have
created to rule us) are changing our minds and our behavior? If
we can't change the future, we are dead! If we let others change
it for us, we are certainly not going to be "free". But,
we cannot ignore the past to shape the future! Of what value
is anyone's future if it is not connected by acknowledgment and
reverence to the past? It is in our genetic code!
moving forward, we must adopt the "principle of universal
accountability" in our religions and commerce: "Accountability"
in what and how we take from and leave to mother earth, for
the sounds we omit, for the actions we take based upon what we hear
and see, and for the consequences of our want(s). We must
stop looking at 'our' status quo for the answers! In understanding
the "magic" in practicing the principle of universal
accountability, our fears will dissipate, and the fruits of
our labors will flourish! Instead, doors are closing! Many of yesterday's
institutions have either become-or sold out to-special interests.
Today, many of these hallmarks are dead dinosaurs
masquerading around as giants!
arguments from facts are seldom able to obtain an apparent
victory over skillfully produced opinions. But opinions and attitudes
should never be substituted for the "assurance" that comes
from careful and principle-based due diligence. Special
interests and 'initiatives' have no obligation to constitutional
ethics. The "now" generations responding to "fad"--based
media frenzies are substituting corporate backed "initiative
campaigns" for the safeguards embodied in a "Republican"
form of government and are wreaking havoc on citizens' privacy,
sovereignty and constitutional protections against "Big Brother"
abuses. From history we can find enduring truths! In looking at
what we did, and why, we can aquire wisdom, if we choose. Fads are
for fans (fanatics)! When do we learn? Do we care? Is our
specializing blinding us from our common sense-our genetic knowing?
Continued attention to September 11th, 2001 which reinforces fear
and anger will deprive us from attending to more important domestic
issues; saving portions of our past to preserve our future!
longer can we burden the accountable, provide benefits and privileges
to the opportunistic and breed dependence. (#7) How far
have we drifted (or strayed) from the truth and aspirations of our
founding fathers? What have we become? Given our apparent current
lack of control, what are we allowing others to do to us or with
us? Who amongst us cares? Of those, what can any of us do about
it? Those who choose not to remember the past are doomed to repeat
it. Our grandparents didn't need all these "benefits"
to put food on their table and keep a roof over their heads! When
do we "wise up" and realize how much we are volunteering
and letting others (whose names we never fully count) control our
lives, manipulate our minds and pollute our bodies?
did state Citizens mutate into U.S. CITIZENS? Clearly,
slavery didn't vanish with the Civil War...slavery just metamorphosed
with the aid of the 14th Amendment, the Social Security Act of 1935
and mutated under the banner of disguising "unlawful acts"
as "licenses of privilege." The more Americans have moved
toward licenses of privilege, the more we have moved away
from a constitutionally based "consciousness."
We are behaving like the children we spoil: the more we "rant
and rave," the better the chances our mother(ship)-"our
government"-will give us our 'cookies' before our
meal, before we've earned it the old fashioned way; patience
and discipline based on sound principle! The shorter our attention
span, the better control they have over us.
we were respected in the world, when we were not a debtor nation
the American family was virginal
and extremely vulnerable.
By 1941, there were only 3.4 million Social Security numbers issued
in the United States. Those volunteering were mostly wealthy people
desiring to give something back to the needy. Keep in mind
that the program had only been in existence for 2 to 2-1/2 years,
and it had not been doing all that well. However, by December of
1945, there were over 44 million Social Security numbers issued.
What was going on in the United States between 1941 and 1945? World
War II! It was the American thing to do! Get a Social Security number,
and invest in and protect the "American Dream!" Today,
it is estimated that over 400 million Social Security numbers have
been issued, thanks to GATT and NAFTA. In spite of this unprecedented
stampede toward the world of benefits and privileges,
the notion that 'Uncle Sam' can help us better than we can
help ourselves has ushered us into "slavery," not freedom
based on accountability and self sufficiency. Today, "The American
Dream" is rapidly disintegrating. We witness the results of
this non-constitutional system on our society every day! We have
made a mess of the last "New Deal", likewise, who amongst
us voted for a "New World Order?"
taxes in the first 2-1/2 years were 1%, and half of that
was refundable. Today, depending on which state we live in, many
individuals are facing nearly a 50% tax rate. When is enough, enough?
When do we say no more, and mean it? Today, millions of greedy individuals
take advantage of unresisting and trusting citizens and twist situations
to their own ends.
original purpose of the Social Security Trust has vanished. Instead,
"U.S. CITIZENS" are tested to the max in an "American
laboratory," further expanding a New World Order mold,
enslaving more of the young "trusting and what else can we
do folks" throughout the world. The Trust's original intent
is not compatible with the dynamics of the "New World Order."
Something far more "666ish" will most likely evolve under
a "New Deal #2" in the not too distant future, if we are
not very careful.
what's the "big deal," you ask? And, more important, what
have we become? "Doesn't everyone need a Social Security number?"
No! "Isn't Social Security mandatory?" No! "Aren't
income taxes mandatory?" No! Our double standards, our two
laws, our two currencies, etc., and, within three generations,
"our way of life," have created fewer than one person
in a gazillion who knows how to live legally without
to an NBC/Wall Street survey, a growing number of Americans want
to opt out of Social Security altogether! In part, the poll says,
"...in a 1979 survey, only 19%, if permitted (excuse me, if
permitted?...that's an interesting perception, since it is
100% voluntary), say they would choose to exit the Social Security
system and not pay payroll tax at all." But in the new survey
conducted in 1999, more than 44% of Americans said they want to
opt out of Social Security altogether! Forty-five percent of those
surveyed said they are not confident at all that Social Security
will be providing benefits when they reach retirement age, while
another 35% said they were just somewhat confident. Nearly 70% said
that they expected the Social Security system would pay either smaller
benefits, or none at all, when they retire.
architects of these "privilege" plans cover their tracks
in part with "welfare." In spite of the appearance of
having more than our grandparents did, today it requires nearly
three people to sustain a family of four vs. only one person fifty
years ago! The "pyramids" get bigger, but the people get
smaller and smaller until one day, someone asks, "Who built
these pyramids?" "What happened to these people?"
"Where did they go?" How many regulations, and how many
privileges do accountable people need anyway? Will our "greed"
serve us as well? Are our 'self-indulgences' blinding us from another's
will we exercise the freedom of choice we tell ourselves
we have in America? How can we call ourselves really free if we
remain dependent on the slave masters' benefits and privileges?
We must understand what is voluntary and what is mandatory! Understand
the consequences of our volunteering! Understand the catch
to licenses of privileges vs. 'licenses of competency.' Any
license which is required to do an act, which act is not an act
of competency but is an act of privilege, is an act that is otherwise
unlawful to the underlying law of the land. The underlying law of
Americans throughout our nation's history is the "common law,"
held accountable to abuses by the constitutions we have ratified.
When will citizens take back control from special interests
"others" have created? Is it time that corporations rethink
their purpose and responsibilities? Their domiciles are secondary
to their reach. Stockholders bear ultimate accountability for the
greed their servants pursue. Corporate "chickens"
will come home to roost!
longer can we trade our children's liberty for financial benefits.
(#11) We create our future with one child at a time. Few
children get home from the hospital without a number, least of all
make it past their parents' first year's 1040 without being enslaved
in a world of greed, manipulation and unlawful taxation. By parents
enjoying a short-term benefit-a lifetime "ball-and-chain"
attaches to our children. More than $1 million in taxes-is what
the system expects from each productive U.S. CITIZEN! We
actually volunteer to be enslaved, while looking the other way and
not admitting the pollution and chaos which results! Are we incompatible
with too much freedom? And yet this perverted activity is
recent survey said that in the last 10 years, Americans' family
time with their children has decreased by 8.4 hours a week: 8.4
hours less time with our children and families! Do we believe that
we are above the evidence? When do we reevaluate the basic values
that our country became great with? When do we stop selling
our birthright for a potage of "short-term and long-term promises"
which always get modified and become something different from what
we volunteered for? Do we care about the long-term consequences?
Where are we going? Do we know? Do we care?
should not be based upon greed and unlawful activity,
as it has been for thousands of years! Unfortunately, both of these
"theorems" are given sanctuary in our society!
Instead, governments should collect their revenues based upon the
"fallout" (damage) of their citizens' activities,
upon themselves and "their environment". The time
is long overdue in acknowledging the overwhelming evidence man has
unmasked. We must stop the reshuffle of American human inventory
around the ruins of the latest "special interest initiative"
or tax scheme! As a society, we must stop exploiting ways
of avoiding universal accountability. Instead we must, once
and for all, recognize and enjoy the natural fruits, which
come from living an accountable life.
have more reason to be concerned about the war at home! Our
government is closing doors on us U.S. CITIZENS, and we are lining
up like good "sheeple" with support! The Husseins
and bin Ladens of the world will eventually be replaced with new
characters. But, what is the end game to all this fast-track emergency
legislation? The new restrictions imposed upon Americans do
not have any expiration dates. What seems to be a benefit or a necessity
today can easily be seen by us tomorrow as oppression. The
taboos of our time are the ghosts emanating from the double standards
we practice in our time. Every era has its "Lord of the Flies!"
We no longer have the "cold war." We now have terrorism!
must not advance these wars! Instead, We The People must
stop them. By choosing to withhold our support for the usurpers
of our time and their non constitutional policies and plans we..."We
The People" can, in a non adversary way, reduce human conflict!
Let's look at all people as fruits of one tree, in one orchard;
the only orchard of six billion fruits (people) we
know of, in the entire universe. But the time to fertilize
an orchard is not when you are expecting to eat the fruit. Consistent
'principle-based leadership' is required decades before results
can be harvested. Additional rules and regulations are but
"damage control" for earlier failed "policies."
Let us stop others from benefiting by manipulating our attitudes!
have reached for our dreams, and made them realities. We have achieved
tremendous successes at so many levels of life. We have been born
into an age of awareness; awareness of the complicated intricacies
of the universe and awe constantly at all of its splendor and glory.
Our country has been a light and an inspiration to the world. We've
fed the hungry, clothed the naked, educated the illiterate, and
tended the needy. With so many accomplishments so quickly in the
life of man, let's not lose now!
be square with our enemies, as well as ourselves. Let's take it
on the nose and address the facts as they really are, but, at the
same time, let us provide all mankind with an example! Then civilizations
yet to come will acknowledge that the United States of America and
every one of its citizens are candles that light the world and enlighten
the universe. They will know that, in spite of our material wealth
and the fads we pursue, we are a genuine people, a true people and
a people who believe in honesty and integrity, respect and dignity-regardless
of our wealth and influence. We must remain united and trusting
in the magic of truth! No one is perfect... Everyone must
be willing to account for their deeds--whether good or bad--in life,
not in or by death! Punishing others will never get us to this end.
let us take this opportunity to unite people everywhere on earth
to help in their efforts to rid themselves of the attitudes (diseases)
in their society (their orchards). The time is still now!
Let's withdraw the curtains from the secret rooms throughout the
world, where too often decisions affecting multitudes of people
are made for reasons that benefit only a few.
must make sure our progress benefits all people whom we deal with.
We must work to unite all cultures through the joys of living and
sharing our earth, not by putting attitude or religion
first. By exerting our real energy living and advancing 'universal
accountability,' instead of manipulating, pandering and wasting
our resources, we shall solve the problems we have created in an
equitable distribution of our energy, food and other staples. Thus
we will avoid passing unbearable burdens on to others in
future generations. In advancing abundance through accountability
and 'reverence for life,' we will naturally protect our environment
and our universe, and prevent their further decay.
with your help, we shall live!
faith, and in faith in our union, we will remain!
