An American for United States Senate

“The greatness of America isn’t found in our differences. It lives—within our truths.

In our agreement with one another to pursue happiness: to engage life in its fullest capacity.

America isn’t easy. She isn’t supposed to be. Easy belies weakness. America is hard, like the hands of a farmer or the backbone of a soldier.

She gives unconditionally, allowing for the growth of her people. Despite our struggle with right and wrong, she is the beacon guiding us through the night, into safe harbor, providing the most important lesson the world has ever known: The lesson of freedom.

It hasn’t been said lately and never enough.

We thank you America.

We won’t let you down.”

For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you will recognize the above quote.  For those of you who haven’t the words above were written as a dedication to the greatest country in human history.

These United States.

Late Bird was written with a purpose.  To show a better way, a brighter path for America.  A collection of individuals could make a difference with the premise completed by an American with no political affiliation be elected to serve the People in the White House.

Presented in the text was a story based on my life that also included a complete overhaul of our taxation system, dissolution of many Federal entities, and an immigration plan that would actually work.

This information can be found on our website aleadernotapolitician.com under the United States Personal Responsibility Act of 2017.

The completion of Late Bird opened many doors as I have been interviewed on radio, television, and print media.  More importantly it connected me to you.  Through social media, the book, and our weekly columns it is fair to say at least 500,000 people have read something I have written.

This has happened because of YOU.

One day, one voice, one American at a time continued and continues to step into the fray with me and strengthen our message of America First, American Only.

Our path to the Presidency is small but still currently open.  With the voters removing the House Majority Leader and the Speaker of the House resigning just recently these actions have proven everything is possible these days and because of the complete collapse of the Democratic and Republican Parties we will continue to leave the possibility of a White House run open while opening another door.

That door will be to the United States Senate.

I live in California.  In 2016 there is going to be a brawl for the seat being vacated (thankfully) by Barbara Boxer.  I will be in that brawl.  We will make an official announcement in January and continue with the same ethics presented in Late Bird.

No campaign contributions.

No salary.

One term.

Service to the people.  Service to America.

It will cost approximately $6000-$7000 in fees to be on the ballot for the United States Senate in California.  I will pay these amounts myself.

We will also need 100 signatures from California registered voters to be put on the ballot.  Those signatures can be from any registered Californian but because they need to be filed in the very county the citizen resides I am requesting assistance in El Dorado County where we can file them all at once.  If you reside in El Dorado County and will provide your signature please contact me, Onyx Pike, or Violet Giovanni.

Although the Senate seat is meant to represent California, the United States Senate sets a tone for change in America, which is why things are getting worse.  This seat affects every American and because of this I need each one you across our great nation to join me shoulder to shoulder to help us spread the word of Freedom, of Peace, of Capitalism.

The door is now open.

We will walk through.

For all of you across these United States who are willing to help us create name recognition please contact Violet Giovanni.  She has already gathered with many of you and your passion and exceptional creativity will be needed.

Too many voices aren’t being heard.  This is your opportunity to join me and have your voice, energy, and strength propel us forward removing corruption, fear, and crushing debt.

One day, one voice, one American, one Senate seat at a time.

Although we all require Freedom there is nothing bumper stickish about it…Freedom isn’t Free.

I am done holding the line.  It is time to move forward.

Now.

Right now.

Why is the Federal Government forcing us to save then punishing us when we do?

Last century the United States Federal Government enacted a “new” program or in other words…creeping Democracy.

The program forced Americans to put money away for usage in their golden years.  It’s pretty easy to see the motivation.  The humans at the “top” didn’t think the humans at the “bottom” were smart or responsible enough to save their money.

Yes it really is that easy.  Of course this program is called Social Security.

For sake of this column let us accept their premise that some humans simply will not plan for their future.

That after 40 plus years of working they don’t have anything.

They experienced the “Bernanke Wealth Effect” rather than real wealth that creates capital.

Capital like property or “real” estate. After 40 plus years they haven’t a home, a car, cash, bonds, gold, or a hat to hang on the rack.  Fortunately Big Brother has been siphoning off a part of their wealth (as well as their employer’s wealth) and holding it in a nice safe place where it will be returned to them at a later date.

All’s well that ends well.  Big Brother’s safety net did its job never mind the fact that Big Brother forced it out of you and if you didn’t make it to the Golden Age Big Brother simply kept the money.

Now those of us with any common sense know all the money being extracted from employers and employees (not to mention the sole proprietor who pays both halves) is not being saved or held for us in a nice safe place.  It is being used to fund never ending wars, corruption, and bail outs (I’m sorry I said corruption already).

How do we know the money isn’t there?

Barack Obama told us so when he stated “Social Security Checks will not go out if the debt ceiling isn’t raised”.

Some will inquire as to the whereabouts of the money being removed from us right now in the name of Social Security.

See above aforementioned corruption, wars, etc.

Eventually there will come a day when the United States Government cannot raise the debt ceiling anymore.  When this happens economic triage will take place.  Whomever is in charge will have to make a decision as to importance of items that need to be paid.

On that list is the military and the U.S. bonds already sold or in other words:

National Security and the Full Faith and Credit of the United States.

I know for a fact the powers that be, Republican or Democrat, will pay the bonds first knowing full well if they don’t our currency will probably collapse.

Next will be the military although when this time does arrive I am fairly certain you will see “conscription” take place with those already in the service followed by “emergency” procedures requiring all soldiers to accept whatever means of payment the government chooses.

All Essential Federal Employees will fall under this directive as well.  The Non-Essential will be “laid off” until the “crisis” ends.  Social Security payments will first be dramatically reduced and then means testing will erase all for some.

This isn’t a worst case scenario.  This will happen eventually without massive changes to our systems and every politician and economist in D.C. knows it which brings me to my point of this entire column.

This collection of economic insanity that has already borrowed, spent, and borrowed more money than is ever going to be earned and then taxed, wants to punish, even further, those of us who have been SAVING OUR MONEY for our later years.

Their new goal is to push interest rates lower driving them into negative territory (already happening in parts of Europe) to force Americans to take their money out of our savings accounts and spend it thereby completely negating the entire purpose of Social Security…to save money for our later years.

I don’t care what you look like, believe in, or who you sleep with.  When your Congressman or Woman, or House Representative vote to raise the debt ceiling and do not stop the Federal Reserve’s criminality of suppression of interest rates and creation of negative rates while stealing our money (Social Security) that they’ve already spent and then force us to remove our money from banks by penalizing us for SAVING THE MONEY in the first place:

Your Freedom as you know it is at risk.

Whether you want to believe it or not.

The Ignorance of Democratic Socialism, RINOS, and Donkeys

As in all entertaining stories we have heroes and foils.  Currently the story of politics in America is stacked with overwhelming foils and few heroes.  Many believe the Republican Party will eventually crumble.  Although anything is possible it is the Democratic Party that is in real trouble.

One Democratic Congressman made a statement not too long ago:

“We’ll have the black vote, the gay vote, the Hispanic vote, the labor vote and the liberal vote…we’ll have it all.”

Before I continue on I would like to point out how easy propaganda is to spot these days.  The quote above was printed in the SunSentinel but the story was written by the Associated Press.  The writer’s bias is easy to spot…only one word was capitalized.  The Congressman made the statement VERBALLY.  The writer changed the importance of only one word through grammar.

I digress.

The Congressman’s name is Alan Grayson and apparently he serves at the pleasure of certain people in Florida.  The audacity of Grayson as a straight white male to proclaim “we’ll have the black vote, the gay vote, and hispanic vote” sounds strikingly like a plantation owner.  As though “blacks” and “hispanics” all think in lock-step.

By the way Alan referring to humans by their skin color is…well… RACIST and I am sure the “gays” just love being labeled that way.

Some Democrat supporters will shake their heads and proclaim this is just one guy.  Really?  The front runner for President is an admirer of Margaret Sanger otherwise known as the Queen of Eugenics.  The guy in second place think men fantasize about raping women while masturbating and women fantasize about being raped by three men simultaneously while having intercourse.  How do we know this?

He wrote it DOWN!

Wow and WOW.

But if that wasn’t enough the two leaders of the “Democratic Party” took shots at the only reason either of them have any money at all.

Capitalism and a Constitutional Republic.

Bernie Sanders wants to do away with the evil known as Capitalism and replace it with Democratic Socialism which would for all intent and purposes remove our Constitutional Republic.  (A few more Supreme Court Justices like Roberts, Sotomayor, and Kagan and the job may be complete.)

In other words he wants to completely remove the foundation of the country others around the world regularly put their lives on the line in order to reside.

Hillary Clinton (The Clinton Foundation worth at least hundreds of millions of dollars) wants to “rein in” Capitalism.

Neither one of these two have had a job outside of government for decades.

Let me see if I can explain this in a way they might understand.

Without Capitalism there is no profit.

Without profit there is nothing to tax.

With nothing to tax they are both broke…but then again so is everyone else.

Ah yes…the misery loves company crowd.   Let’s try it a different way.

Capitalism is inherent to us.  Working to provide water, food, and shelter or in other words SURVIVE has been around since the dawn of man.  It isn’t going to change.  Capitalism happens everywhere including prison.

Socialism is a fantasy of Liberals who spent too much time watching Fantasia.

Socialism isn’t Robin Hood.  It doesn’t take from the rich and give to the poor.  Socialism in America robs the middle class, bloats the government, and creates more poor.

But whether you like that description or not without Capitalism there is no profit, no middle class, no government, no socialism…just poor and war.

A better Margaret once said “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

We’ve already done that.  That’s why we are almost 20 trillion dollars in debt never mind unfunded programs like Social Security, Medicare, and State Pensions across the country.

It’s also the reason why the RINO’s are having a Trump Party and the Democratic Party is dead.

Trump is giving the Elephants a chance.

Clinton and Sanders are leaning on the stake Obama drove into the Donkey that stopped braying a long time ago.

Regardless, the Elephant will join the Jackass.

Time for the Lions of America to awaken and restore order to what has turned into a jungle.

CNN, Clinton, and the Klan

Whether we refer to it as the eyeball test or Malcolm Gladwell’s theory covered in his book Blink (our brain gives us all the info we need in most situations in the blink of an eye) the message is the same.

Listen to what your body tells you.

Too many in America aren’t doing this anymore.  Denial, rationalization, willful ignorance, or idolatry has taken us down a road that too many won’t understand how dangerous until it’s too late.

As I watched the CNN Democratic Presidential debate my brain gave me all I needed to know in the blink of an eye.

The Party of “Racial Diversity” had five white faces on the stage…sort of.

Four white and one orange, if we want to be accurate, as Martin O’Malley appeared to have borrowed John Boehner’s tanning lotion.

Then again maybe he was trying to channel his inner Elizabeth Warren.  Someone should have told him “orange face” is “racist” or Orange is only the new Black on NetFlix.

Just ask Syracuse or St. John’s University.

But let us give Martin the benefit of the doubt.  Maybe the reason he looked so orange was the rest of the panel appeared to resemble Casper the Friendly Ghost.

My brain then took in the next obvious factor.

The Party of “Gender Equality” had four men and a Clinton.

Yes Hillary is a woman but because of the damage done by her husband to more women than we will ever know, and her constant covering up of his crimes, my guess is O’Malley would be a better voice in support of female rights except he apologized for saying “all lives matter” so maybe he doesn’t care about our American sisters either.

These Democrats are hard to follow unless we institute the rule of hypocrisy and the comprehension that they will Say Anything (excellent movie) to be elected.  Once we have our hypocrite/liar model in place they are much easier to translate.

I digress.

The last eye catching moment was the audacity of the Democratic Party to claim they are the Party of the “Youth”.  I’m not going to bother doing the research.  No one on that stage could possibly be south of sixty and we all know Hillary struggles with “email”.

These politicians have crushed the “youth” with catastrophic federal debt, punitive Obamacare premiums or fines, and stunning student loan insanity.

But if all that wasn’t enough Colonel Sanders decided to wade in with his love of “Democratic Socialism” and Scandinavian countries.

Hmm…this is more about the ear test…and a few historical facts.

You see the Democratic Party in all its glory was the Party of…Slavery.

Specifically of the black human.

Yes slavery existed in the Americas long before the Democratic Party.

The indigenous “tribes” murdered, raped, pillaged, and sold each other long before any European “invasion”.

The English sold the Irish up and down the Americas reportedly as early as the 1600’s.

They also sold “Afrikans” as did the Mohammedans (Muslims).

Humans have done and continue to do horrible things to each other.

Unfortunately slavery still exists in Africa and Muslim countries as accepted practices…whether you want to believe or acknowledge that or not.

Fortunately a man named Lincoln made a Proclamation about Emancipation  and an imperfect people in an imperfect world gave their lives for many reasons…one of them being the freedom of humans who did not look like them.

This is the only time in recorded history I am aware of that one “color” of human fought the same “color” of human to free another “color”.

Even in her infancy America was leading the way.

Or at least part of America.

The Democratic Party did not support Freedom for All and it appears nothing has changed as that same belief system, that skin color dictates our place in the world, was seen on CNN.

One of Hillary Clinton’s idols was a woman named Margaret Sanger who believed in Eugenics or black and brown or even “yellow” humans (a racist phrase made famous by The Boss ‘going to kill the yellow man’) are inferior to white humans.

“Weekend at Bernie’s” himself lauds the systems of Scandinavian nations knowing they are well over ninety percent…wait for it…Caucasian.

Removing Jim Webb from the equation the only thing missing on that stage were the hoods.

In case you didn’t recognize it America, that was a 21st Century Klan meeting.

To all Americans who fall on the wrong side of the Eugenics absurdity and still support the Democratic Party:

You are being taken down a brutal path.

Just look at parts of Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore, and New York City.

Time to blink twice, refocus and join your American Brothers and Sisters who believe in the “content of our character” not the “color of our skin”.

To all Americans who look like and still support Hillary, Bernie, and the rest of the hatred and bile coming from the Democratic Party:

You should be ashamed of yourselves.

But whether you are or are not is irrelevant.

I and millions of Americans like me are already standing shoulder to shoulder and are on our way to deal with you.

You won’t recognize us from our skin color because we all blend under the freedom of the red, white, and blue.

But we will recognize you as we do with all bullies and cowards from that yellow streak running down your back as you flee from the righteous rage coming your way.

It’s easy to run your mouths when you are the only one throwing punches.

We’ll see how you do when we stop holding the line and start moving forward.

I’m pretty sure that won’t be a tingle running down your leg.

They aren’t Blood

I’ve listened to Hillary Clinton call herself a hawk and John McCain’s answer to Iran given in song.

“Bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran”.

Obama’s red line or Ric Santorum’s plan to “bomb them back to the seventh century”.

It doesn’t matter the Party anymore.

Politicians making threats others will have to risk their lives to enforce.

We’ve all heard the “blood and treasure” statement as though those two words can explain the sacrifice made by our best and bravest, who when called, continue to run into the fire.

They aren’t “blood” to their mothers and fathers who will never see their children again.

They aren’t blood to those of us who cherish and honor their service, and for far too many, their sacrifice.

They aren’t blood to their children who will never see their bright smiles again, or experience a kiss from Daddy or a hug from Mommy.

They are Americans.  They are our brothers and sisters.

But rather than using my words we would be better served to read the words of an American Soldier.

A Combat Veteran.

Words sent to me recently:

“I am silently staring off in the distance, fist clenched, tears running down my check. Seeing all that cannot be unseen, reliving all that cannot be undone. Watching brothers and sisters being blown away. Knowing that another soldier won’t come home.

You will never see this from me, because my face and self control won’t allow it. Never understanding why I laugh and tell a joke, or change the subject when you ask me if I have ever killed someone. I honestly know that you could not handle the truth, so please stop asking.

If I want you to know I will tell you.

Stop asking about war, all I will tell is the funny stuff.

Believe me there is very little of that.

A sight, a sound, a smell, that is all it takes for me to relive the worst moment of my life.

I am PTSD, and I am not what they want you to believe.

If you understood the truth, then you would understand why it is a silent killer.”

 

The United States Combat Veteran is our first line of defense.

They aren’t blood.

They are the reason America remains free.

It is a dereliction of duty by American politicians to ignore the needs of the American Soldier.

It is a dereliction of ethics for America to ignore the needs of the American Soldier.

We must step into the fray for those who’ve already stepped into the fight and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Love One Another

Eckhart Tolle once wrote about the process of “presence” or “being”.

William Shakespeare spoke about this as well, long ago, in the ever famous line, “to be or not to be that is the question.”

I believe the concept of “being” is the positive evolution of the animal known as human, but it seems with all things, we take two steps forward and one step back.

In the second half of the 20th Century we turned the idea of “being” into immediate self-gratification.

Everything must be done right here right now with no thoughts or cares to or of our actions.

In the late Sixties and Seventies the Me generation lived for the “now”.

“Tune in, turn on, drop out”.

The Eighties were the Go Go, Gordon Gekko, Greed is Good times leading us into the Nineties and “the end of big government”…when really the beginning was just taking place.

Clinton, Bush, and Obama have now set America on a path of destruction and as this cycle of Boomeritis comes to fruition the kids are again starting down this road, just with a new moniker, picked up from the free love crowd.

YOLO…or You Only Live Once.

Sex, drugs, and rock n roll have “progressed” into oral (President Clinton said it wasn’t sex) copulation, Ecstasy and Meth, and rappers screaming homophobic, misogynistic, racist rantings about women and killing cops.

Rather than the beautiful poetry and angst given to us by Don Henley and the wail of an electric guitar captured forever with the lyrics ” I can tell you my love for you will still be strong… after the Boys of Summer… have gone” we have again “progressed” to “now I ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger but she ain’t messin’ with no broke niggas” brought to us by a man who compares himself to Jesus.

As the kids say these days…”he be trippin’.”

He be somethin’ all right.

I have no doubt this isn’t what Tolle had in mind and if Shakespeare were here now my guess is his head would be shaking followed by a short statement:

“Apparently we have chosen NOT to be.”

Not only have we chosen not to “be” but because of our unwillingness to do away with hero worship or looking to others for solutions in our own lives…we are right back where we started.

In the Seventies we had social unrest, problems in the Middle East (Iran), the Cold War (U.S.S.R), high unemployment, and a weak, feckless man whom some would call an anti-semite at the helm (Carter).

We are now in the 21st Century.  The year 2015.

Social unrest?

Yes.

Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, etc.

Problems in the Middle East?

Yes.

Of course Iran and for the record both Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden still exist.  They’ve just morphed into what is now known as…wait for it…ISIS.  Great job George.  Excellent work Barry.

The Cold War with the U.S.S.R?

Been replaced with “hot” wars happening in multiple places around the world with Russia…whether you are paying attention or want to admit it or not.

High unemployment?

Yes.  Just because they’ve changed the calculations and stopped counting people doesn’t mean they have a job.

They don’t.

A weak feckless man whom many call an anti-semite at the helm?

Yes, yes, and yes.

We couldn’t just have one coward serve as the last Commander-in-Chief.  We tripled down and elected the three worst Presidents the country has ever seen.

So with 19 trillion in debt and counting, human trafficking continuing unabated through our border, 47 million on food stamps, “refugees” who swear their allegiance to Allah running through Europe (and apparently soon here), Russia ordering us around, secret deals with Iran (who wants to kill us and everything we stand for) the Republican Establishment want to give us a third helping of Bush.

If this wasn’t laughable enough the Democratic Party cannot make up its mind whether Hillary should be indicted, if so when, and how they are going to roll out the Biden/Cheekbones team.

Excuse me.  For anyone not familiar with the college admissions issue I am referring to Elizabeth Warren.

When will we learn?

None of these people including Rubio, Sanders, Trump, or even Ben Carson are ever going to make your life better.

Although Trump is right on several issues and in my opinion Ben Carson is a good person neither of them have any understanding or control of your life.

They never have and never will.

You are the only one that will make your life better.

That will make America stronger!

That will push freedom forward for the next generation!

YOU!

No more hero worship!  No more Popes, or Presidents, and certainly no more politicians!

YOU!  The American Citizen!  The beacon of Freedom!  Unleash the Lion in each one of you!

You, me, and millions of Americans standing shoulder to shoulder requiring the United States Constitution continue to guarantee its most important purpose.

The rights of the individual.

But in current times our days can be long and our burden heavy.

In these days comfort can be found in messages from above…written below.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

Or my favorite as depth is found in the simplicity of three words.

Love one another.

“Is Barack Obama a muslim?”

Come on already.  It’s an easy question to answer.

“Is Barack Obama a muslim?”

When you watch Donald Trump and Ben Carson and the muslim issue is brought up it is very clear by their body language where they stand.

They believe Obama is a muslim.

They aren’t alone.

My guess is at least half the country, over their kitchen tables and work water coolers, think so too.

But they are struggling because they are still caught up in the PC world.

Trump is now saying it isn’t his responsibility to defend Obama (he’s right but what an interesting choice of words) and Carson is now explaining Sharia rather than answering the question and finally getting to the root of the matter.

Let me help them:

“Mr. Kraus do you think Barack Obama is a muslim?”

“It is a fact Barack Obama supports Islam.  He has said so many times in many different ways.  It’s on video and in his books. His father whom he cherishes was a muslim.  He once said the Islamic call to prayer was ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’  Only Barack Obama knows whether he drops down five times a day and faces Mecca but with all that said…HE BETTER NOT BE.”

“What do you mean he better not be?”

“Because if he is he has been lying to us for almost seven years by telling us he is a Christian.  More importantly if he is a muslim then he is the ultimate fraud and America is under attack.  So I will say it again…HE BETTER NOT BE.”

Simple and to the point.  I give Carson a pass because he is still figuring out how to communicate but Trump…come on now Donald this is what you do!

Scorched Earth!

You should have been waiting for this opportunity and then leveled everything you had at Obama.

Whether Americans will say this next statement out loud is irrelevant…at least half of America believes Obama is a closet muslim (taqiya), most will proclaim or admit (factually) that he cherishes Islam, and the entire country, including his supporters, know that he lies.

“Smidgen of corruption”

“Heard about events on television like everyone else”

“Benghazi was about a video”

“Obamacare will save us all money”

“ISIL is the J.V. team”

“Syria is my red line”

“islam is woven into the fabric of our country”

and on and on and on.

I’d cover some of his economic calamities in depth (47 million Americans on food stamps, almost 19 trillion in debt, roughly 100 million of age Americans not in the labor force, criminal suppression of interest rates) but I don’t believe he understands economics in any way shape or form as is shown with his keeping Ben Bernanke, anointing Janet Yellin, and “listening” to Paul Krugman.

None of whom have any understanding of human behavior.

I digress.

The next question is easy.

“Mr. Kraus do you believe Barack Obama is an United States citizen?”

This answer is even easier.

“HE BETTER BE.  When all this mess is unfolded and his college transcripts are unsealed Barack Obama and members of the DNC better hope he is…otherwise there won’t be a corner of the Earth safe for them.”

“What are you saying Mr. Kraus?”

“What part didn’t you understand?  If Barack Obama isn’t a citizen then he is an enemy of the State sitting in the most powerful position in the world.  If it is uncovered that he was a foreign exchange student he and his cohorts, muslim or not, will be tried, found guilty of treason, and executed.

Just like any traitor would be.

So for his sake he damn well BETTER BE an American citizen.”

Question asked and answered concisely and to the letter of the law with facts and TRUTH.

This one is a freebie Donald.

You’re welcome.

Try not to butcher it by telling us how great you are at the same time…and Donald…just try and hang in there.

There’s a pride of Lions and a Falcon arriving soon to send you back to television…or didn’t you hear?

Rosie is back on the View.

NO PARTY PREFERENCE (NPP)

Let’s understand how this really works shall we.

The Republican Party doesn’t answer to you, me, or the United States Constitution.

They answer to their donors.

Reince Priebus and his cohorts only exist because they continue to receive money from, presumably, Americans.

Let’s fast forward and for sake of this exercise declare Donald Trump the choice of the Republican voter.

If the Party leaders don’t agree, they can and will remove him, and enter someone else, maybe Jeb Bush in his place.

The Democratic Party is even worse.  They receive billions from willing and unwilling donors (many not Americans, see Clinton Foundation) as well as the public unions as each member is forced to pay dues that are then funneled back to the DNC.

This tiny group decides where that money will be spent all over the nation (or in Obama’s case even in Israel trying to oust Netanyahu).  Dues out of California (because there is no competition in the Golden State) might be used in a tight race in Colorado, or North Carolina, or Florida.

If the Democratic Party doesn’t think Hillary Clinton is electable she can be removed from consideration at any time, whether she likes it or not.

These parties aren’t law enforcement or even law.

Not that it matters as the rule of law is currently in the past.

The Party system isn’t a Constitutional or Representative Republic.

It isn’t even Democracy.

In fact the direct correlation attached when the word Party was used in the 70’s and 80’s was…Communist.

Let’s call it what it is.

Oppression.

A country of over 300 million being controlled by two Parties.  Those parties are controlled by a small group of donors and servants of the donors known as:

House Representatives, Senators, Judges, and Presidents.

All three branches of government controlled by two tiny groups of people.

Okay Jason…sounds depressing and brutal…what is the answer?

Get INVOLVED!

Okay Jason…how?

Well now I am glad you inquired.  It’s actually quite easy.

Through the last three years I and many others, while spreading the word of Freedom, have been looking for avenues to correct this absurdity known as debilitating government.

It’s been hard work and taken lots of hours of research but finally a nugget of truth was uncovered.

We are still waiting for the final verbiage to be released in September but according to our research to run for United States Senator in California only two things are necessary.

65, that’s right, Sixty Five signatures of registered voters and a check for a little under $4000.00.

That’s it.

$4000.00 seems like a lot of money Jason.  People are struggling right now.

If the sixty five people who sign all kick in sixty bucks you could choose whomever your group wants and they would be on the ballot in California for the position of United States Senator.

What about the parties?

When you register to vote you have an option to select NO PARTY PREFERENCE.

That will be the name of the Party.  NO PARTY PREFERENCE or NPP.

Who’s down with NPP yeah you know me! ( A little Naughty by Nature reference).

My point?

Two-fold.

Number one.

This is easy!  65 people!  Come on America!  I can get 65 signatures from my family and friends alone!

All things are possible through belief and hard work…so believe…and let’s get to WORK!

Number two.

The info about California is covered.  That leaves 49 other opportunities!  Do the work in your State and share it to my page.  This can all be done through the internet and telephone.

Each State may be a little different and have some quirks.

Figure it out.

Let’s have an American on every State running for something this year under No Party Preference or NPP.

No more Republicans,Democrats, Libertarians, etc.

We want AMERICANS!!!

Let’s replace Party with three letters NPP or also known as U.S.A.

America first!

American only.

Shoulder to shoulder.

ONE voice at a time.

Step into the fray

Most humans will inherently do the right thing…or at a minimum won’t do the wrong thing.

This isn’t a Pollyannic view or a glass is half full mentality.  It’s how most of us are.  Otherwise nothing would ever be accomplished.  Most crime (aside from drug usage) happens in short bursts.

Tiny amounts of time.

For anyone who has been in a fight you know most altercations are over in less than two minutes although for some it may seem much longer, and for those of you who don’t believe me…put on your running shoes, go outside and sprint as fast as you can for 60 seconds.  Most won’t be able to continue for another 60 seconds and that doesn’t take into account someone trying to tear your head off at the same time.

I digress.

It seems we are allowing a tiny portion of the American population to dictate how the rest of us will live.

No, I am not talking about Muslims, gang-bangers, or CAIR (Council For American-Islamic Relations and yes this is the same group the UAE (United ARAB Emirates) designated as a Terrorist Group and yes they have access to the White House (see Muslim Brotherhood).

I’m not talking about bankers or attorneys.

I’m not even referring to the Occupy Wall Street/Hands Up Don’t shoot/Black Lives Matter crowd.

I’m talking about Washington D.C.

I’m talking about the less than 600 humans who beg for our money and votes and then spit in our faces while answering to their multimillionaire/billionaire donors.

I’m talking about the less than 600 humans who choose to collectively endanger our freedom by crushing us with debt, have stopped the enforcement of law (unless it fits their agenda) and continue to attempt to separate Americans by using oppression and disgusting propaganda.

But then again these humans were chosen by us.

What are we thinking?

We aren’t.

Everyday on my way to work I drive by what used to be referred to as a lake.

Folsom Lake to be precise.

Every 24 hour cycle the “lake” disappears as the soil seems to rise up reaching for the sky.

This is the same sky Jerry Brown and his cohorts are praying will deliver an El Nino of the Century replenishing the ground and providing the most important requirement of all living animals and hundreds of thousands of humans living in Folsom, Roseville, and surrounding areas.

Water.

Are the powers that be dredging the lake to allow for the capture of as much agua as possible if and when the prayers of the hypocrites are answered?

Of course not.

That would make too much sense.

Let’s just increase the population while requiring  all property owners let their lawns, plants, and trees go without water.

In other words…die.

This is the “green” party?

Hardly.

The Democratic Party in California ( and America) only cares about…power.  But because they’ve been in charge for so long they’ve begun to drink their own “kool aid”.

They know the Republican Party has nothing to offer.

In this they are correct.

But the three decade experiment known as “progressivism” is dying on the vine.

Literally.

Progressivism or “Compassionate” Conservatism is over.

The Me Generation of politicians has loaded America with drugs, sexual dysfunction, and debt.

It’s time to embrace American values.

Sobriety, loyalty, and a solvent currency.

It is time to not only shed the skin of the snake wrapped around Lady Liberty but to also remove the parasite known as Liberal boasting in one party and hiding in the other.

But if the Donkey and the Elephant are the only ones to step into the fray then the die must be recast.

Time for a new roll.

Time to unleash the Lions of America and restore the message.

America first.

American only.

But this isn’t going to happen unless the individual Citizen engages by staring into the mirror and then stepping into the fight.

You don’t even have to leave your house to do it.  Just share the columns.

Social media is irrelevant unless it is used.

I’ve spent thousands of dollars just on Facebook promoting the columns I’ve written.

It costs you nothing to hit the share button.

Over the last year thousands of you have but we have to move faster.

The debt in increasing, human trafficking through our border just claimed the lives of more women and children.

This isn’t hyperbole.

It happens every day.

I will be in Detroit next weekend on the 11th and 12th meeting with my American Brothers and Sisters as I see the Motor City and its suburbs in person.

On the 13th I will be on the radio with Tony Schwartz and his show FreedomWorx found on CaveRadioBroadcasting.com from 2:00-5:00 pm Eastern Time.

Bring your voice and join us in the reclamation and restoration of OUR country.

I will finish with this thought.

A column I recently wrote had over 50,000 views.

Collectively the column gathered around 10,000 pieces of information, likes, shares, or comments.

Imagine what would happen if the other 40,000…got involved.

Step into the fray America before the fray steps on us.

Political Parties are the Past…Free the American Citizen

Simply put the definition of Democracy is the Majority ruling over the Minority.  You may get some pseudo-intellectuals (lawyers/professors)  pontificating around the edges but stripping away all the noise Democracy is about the Majority dictating to the Minority.

Those in the Majority think this is great…those in the Minority…not so much.

Let’s call it what it is.

Gang mentality.

Are there things worse than Democracy?

Sure.

Socialism, Communism, Islam (Sharia) are all worse than Democracy although one could factually argue that Democracy molds to whatever the majority dictates.

If the “majority” dictates that women are property or have second class status and can be legally beaten (Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, etc.) then it appears the usage of the word Democracy would be correct.

It makes one wonder about anyone in America calling themselves a Democrat, and for the record all of the countries just listed have one thing in common.

Their system is Islam, Sunni or Shiite majorities.

Is there anything better than Democracy?

I’m glad you asked.

Here in these United States it is called a Constitutional Republic.

A Constitutional Republic’s primary goal is to protect the rights of the Individual Citizen.

Not gangs known as Crips or Bloods, or groups known as Republicans or Democrats.

The purpose of the Constitutional Republic in America is to protect each AMERICAN citizen guaranteeing very specific rights that are beneficial to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Neither Democracy or a Constitutional Republic are animate or inanimate objects.

They are systems.

I’ve mentioned many times Freedom and Oppression are the only two cultures in human existence which is why multiculturalism fails so miserably.

No sane person will willingly mix or “diversify” Freedom and Oppression.

No sane human will trade being dictated to on Mondays and Wednesdays to be free on Fridays.

No sane human will barter being beaten or raped on Tuesdays and Thursdays to be safe on Saturday.

We want to be free and safe every day of the week and twice on Sunday to fulfill our dreams, to strive, succeed, fail, and strive again. To pursue happiness.

Under these two cultures, as the human animal as evolved or changed, systems have been created.

Economic systems like Capitalism and the aforementioned Socialism and Communism have spread all over the world as humans require freedom from other humans…or bow to enslavement.

The reason Capitalism is so much more powerful than all other stated economic systems isn’t complicated.

It is ingrained in the individual to take care of themselves.

Capitalism is the only economic system where humans are motivated intrinsically rather than extrinsically…and that’s why it works.

All humans are born with free will and very specific needs to be met.  Both free will and our needs are met individually.

Your extra consumption of water in the mountains isn’t going to quench the thirst of someone standing in the desert.

Your eating dessert isn’t going to hurt your neighbor three doors down with type two diabetes.

Your usage of an umbrella in a rain storm doesn’t stop the guy down the street, without one, from getting wet.

The human animal comes with specific emotional coping techniques to allow pain to be handled.  Denial and rationalization almost always come first.

Responsible humans move through these relatively quickly and grasp acceptance through TRUTH.  The truth isn’t always pretty but it never changes.

It can be counted on.

Truth isn’t hypothetical.

Truth is universal.

Truth is so easy to see and more importantly even easier to feel.

We know truth.  We embrace truth.

Truth is the only permanent solace known to man.

Time to rip off the bandage in one giant pull.

This is the TRUTH.

The only thing keeping the Democratic Party alive is…the Republican Party.

The only thing keeping the Republican Party alive is…US.

When I refer to US I mean those of us working in the private sector (Capitalism) creating the profits that allow the country to run.

Yes the military is important (incredibly) and a requirement to remain free, but without real profit, that is then taxed, a military cannot be properly maintained (which is why the debt is putting us in an increasingly dangerous place).

Those same profits created are being used against US to hire more “government” workers on many levels.  This increases the size of the “public unions” and requires each new hire to pay dues.  These dues are then funneled back to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) where that money is spread all over the country trying to keep the Democratic Party alive.  Yes New York public union dues do end up in swing-states like Colorado and Florida every election cycle.

The current Democratic Party is dead.

They just don’t know it yet.

The Millenials hate the Democrats almost as much as they hate the Republicans.

Almost half of all Millenials are beginning to call themselves Independents not knowing there isn’t actually an Independent Party.  There is an American Independent and the Independent American Party but they are so small, and not recognized beyond a couple of States, no one knows who they are.

The overwhelming majority in America abhors the Democratic Party.

There’s just nowhere else for them to turn because the Republican Party is simply awful.

The largest Democratic State in the country is California.

In California’s last election it was reported less than 20 percent of eligible citizens even bothered to vote.

Less than 1 in 5.

Or put another way more than 4 out of 5 Californians didn’t even try.  Didn’t hang a chad, mark an x, write in Charlie Brown…and Charlie would have been so much better than Jerry.

Californians don’t love the Democratic Party…they just don’t have anywhere else to turn.

So instead of voting for either party they are choosing in massive numbers to stay home.

The Republican Party has been so bad for so long it lost…California!

How do you lose the largest economy in the country and do nothing about it?

How do you lose 40 million people, 55 electoral votes, dozens of House Representatives, 2 Senators, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the greatest piece of land the Earth has ever created…and do nothing!!!

How can you call yourself a Political Party when the votes of more than eighty percent of the citizens in the Golden State are available and you cannot put together a cogent plan to get ANY of them!!!

The truth is this.  Most of America hates both parties.  Most of America has decided to stay home on election night.  Some out of laziness.  Others out of apathy.  Many to send a message. But an overwhelming amount would jump into the fray overnight if they had someone, anyone to believe in.

That’s why we are here.

To serve America.

To replace Democrats and Republicans with AMERICANS who swear their allegiance to country not party.

Doors continue to open.  We have to be ready to move through them.

If Donald Trump is removed from the Republican ticket or deems he isn’t being treated fairly he will presumably strike out on his own which will “split the Republican vote”.

If the Democrats decide Hillary Clinton is finished the reported potential combination of Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren may be chosen by the DNC.

Bernie Sanders has already made noise about going “independent” which will split the vote.

The Party system is dead.  America has had more than enough of debt, crime, and lies but the individual isn’t sure where to turn.

This is OUR time!

I will be in Nevada and Arizona next week followed by Detroit on the weekend of the 11th, 12th, and 13th of September where I will meet with AMERICANS whose loyalty is to these United States.

The 12th will be spent seeing Detroit and its suburbs and the 13th will be spent on Cave Radio with Tony Schwartz and his show Freedomworx.

Because it does!!!

The show will start at 2:00 and end at 5:00 Eastern Time.  I will be on the air with Tony for three hours after which I will catch the next flight out and return home to California.

I was one voice two years ago.  I am still one voice but I am willing to take my voice wherever it is necessary at my own expense.  I will never ask or accept any money but I need your voices!

The Parties are the past.  Democracy is dead.

It is time for the Individual to embrace the two systems that have never let them down.

Capitalism and The Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America!

Things are lining up for the unknown American to step into the fray and reclaim and restore our country.

Three percent…or ten million unknown Americans shoulder to shoulder should do the trick.

Join me brothers and sisters.

One voice at a time.
