CA Liberty March & Arts Festival Update #1

On April 15, 2013, I will begin a 700+ mile walk from San Diego to Sacramento. This is a march to stand up for my civil rights and to demand transparency and accountability from our elected and appointed officials. Click HERE to read more information about the march.

The following are things that I need to raise money for, for the march: a recreational vehicle; walking shoes and clothes; travel gear; maps and GPS units; food and gasoline.

RECREATIONAL VEHICLE

I have not received a call or e-mail from anyone about being able to use their RV for use on the march, so I visited a local Cruise America rental lot to inquire about the cost of renting one. Given the distance and duration of the trip, and the size of the team I anticipate bringing, the cost for utilizing this mode of transportation will be $6970.82.

This breaks down as:

  • $5217 to rent the RV for 47 nights @ $111 per night
  • $510 for mileage ($0.34 per mile)
  • $443.82 for tax
  • $800 for Gas (projected gallons to be used: 150 gallons at $5/gallon (based on possible gas price increases)
  • $6970.82 total cost for RV rental, mileage, taxes and gasoline.

A $500 deposit is needed for the duration of the rental.

WALKING SHOES AND CLOTHES

I’m going to need help getting three pairs of shoes for the march, as well as clothes that will withstand the stress and friction of the journey.

The cost for three pairs of shoes that will last over the course of my training and then the march itself will be $365.00.

The cost for the travel clothes, including a rain slicker and rubber boots, will be approximately $1000.00.

MAPS AND GPS DEVICES

Street maps to use for planning out the march routes cost $130.00.

One-set of Garmin Rhino 120 GPS 2-Way Radios will cost $350.00.

FOOD AND GASOLINE

There will be three people in the march team. Figuring $30 per person per day for 47 days, we will need $4230.00.

Gasoline for the trip, approximately 150 gallons @ $5/gal will cost $750.00.

The GRAND TOTAL COST for march expenses is $13,795.82

Founders Fairs: Some Ideas for Taking Back Our Country

America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave will be ours again. These are ideas for achieving this goal.

We need to stop wringing our hands about how corrupt and liberal the Media is. It is hopelessly so. It will never change, and we should stop hoping that it will. To continue to do so, is insanity. Instead of doing the same things and hoping things will change, let’s think of rational ways we can make a difference in our lives and in our country.

We need to stop worrying about the galling and outrageous lies that Democrats in office say about us. These are evil people. They have so shame and will never change. To think they are redeemable is illogical, as they reject God and morality, and thus, do not possess the capacity for self-reflection. These people are consumed by self-loathing. And, the only people they hate more than themselves are patriotic Americans. They are insane. Hoping that they will change, is insanity.

If you don’t like the offerings available on television or in the theaters, make your own media and entertainment. Right now. And create social networks with which to sell your Conservative products to other Conservatives. Glenn Beck is doing this. We must all participate in doing so.

If generations of our youth can be indoctrinated to hate our country, we can work to teach our future youth to revere it. Through fiction, comics, games, music, drama, movies, and our own actions, we can counteract the poisonous stream of Progressive influence that permeates our society.

If activism is not your thing, ask yourself this, “Is freedom, my thing? Is being an American, my thing? Is hope for the future of my children and their children, my thing?”

If you said, yes, then you must become an activist in your own way. Otherwise, the Progressives will continue their assault, and will continue to rob this country’s blessing from you and yours.

You must be willing to acknowledge that we are at war. Progressives declared war on us decades ago; politically at first. Today, they wage war on us through our mass media and popular culture. The radicals and extremists have managed to flip everything around, and now, they have managed to convince politically-naive Americans that WE are the “radicals and extremists”.

Rather than fight this false depiction, embrace it. BE a radical. Be an extremist in the service of your country. Leap out of your foxhole of apathy and join the fight. Be brave in order to live free.

Consider moving to a red state where multitudes of like-minded Americans live. Become part of the politics. Demand that government adhere to and legislate according to the Constitution. LIVE freedom.

Don’t be afraid to be vocal. Political Correctness is the tool Progressives use to keep you from combating their lies and revisionist history. You’re an adult. Don’t allow the indoctrinated and infantilized to dictate what you can or cannot say. They do not care what you believe in. They don’t have your best interests at heart. They are the Enemy Within, and you have a moral obligation to confront them and hold your ground.

If nothing else, make a sign, go to a busy corner, and show yourself. Be the solitary voice of reason and courage in your community. Stand up and be counted. Rage against the dying of the light of liberty. You will not be alone. Your fellow Americans will stand beside you, in spirit; as will God. For, God has so blessed this nation, that we must be willing to fight to keep Him in our society. Otherwise, society will continue to be corrupted by the evil influence of Progressivism, and our civil liberties will be lost. For God (who gave us our rights), and for America (which embodies freedom in a chaotic world), we must be willing to step outside of our political comfort zones.

One concrete idea I have for taking back America is to organize and hold Founders Fairs throughout the country. These would be free-to-attend events that teach attendees about American History, about important American historical figures and their beliefs, and about the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.

At these fairs, costumed actors would wander, reciting important quotes and speeches, while they hand out literature about the person they are portraying. There would be a live band playing patriotic music and military hymns. On stage, speakers would discuss topics, like: “What is American Exceptionalism,” and “Why is America a Unique Experiment in Self-Rule, ” etc. There would food vendors, and booths where American craftsmen could ply their wares, and where powdered wigs and flags and muskets could be safely displayed.

These fairs would bring history to life, and would engage attendees in a way that Progressively-edited school books and historically-revised lectures by Progressive educators will not.

If you are willing to devote time to organizing such an event, contact me. Together, we can make a difference.

The Democrats Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste

For the past two years, I have watched and endured this president and his surrogates in the media call average, God-fearing, patriotic Americans the vilest names I have ever heard.

First, they insinuated we are violent radicals. Then, they colluded (via… JournoList) to call us, “racists.” When that proved to be false because they could produce no evidence, they went full bore to ridicule and then to outright confrontation. They have done everything in their power to belittle us. In other words, they used Alinsky’s Rule for Radicals against Americans in order to get us to conform and to comply.

Yet still, here we are. We sent them a message in November, a message they refuse to acknowledge and respect; just as they refuse to respect their fellow Americans.

And, WE are the ones who have to temper our speech?

No.

No one tells us what we can or cannot say or think. It should be obvious, even to the most ardent Democrat supporter, that the current crop of politicians running this nation have no intention of “serving” us. As far as they are concerned, we serve THEM.

That is unacceptable. The fact that these Communists, and they are Communists, think themselves superior to everyone else makes THEM the most dangerous people in America.

We need to continue to fight against their lies by exposing them for the liars and hypocrites that they are. This includes their mouthpieces in the media. And they are legion.

Even though sometimes it seems overwhelming to fight the powers-that-be, we must remember that there are over 300 million of us, and only 545 of these despicable power-hungry bastards in high office.

If they continue to abuse us and to harm us with laws that are unjust and unconstitutional, we will have no choice but to continue to weather their insults and traitorous behavior until we can vote them out of power. November was the start of this endeavor.

For anyone who considers themselves “apolitical,” I would ask that you carefully listen to what the media says and doesn’t say. How they say it and when. Soon, you will recognize the pattern and presence of the Leftist Agenda in this country. And, it does not have your best interests at heart.

Any responsible citizen should be a part of his or her governance, and have the courage to tell a tyrannical government, “No.”

Redefining Right and Wrong In Order to Redefine America

There is right and there is wrong, and no matter how much Liberals want to deny this reality, it is true. A concerted effort by the Left to redefine right and wrong has been the primary source of discord within our nation since the Sixties. Over the past forty years, God has been removed from American Life. This is not because Americans are becoming “progressive,” but rather it is because the Left has actively attacked Christianity and traditional American values. But why?

The answer is simple. Liberals don’t like the idea of right and wrong because moral judgments put a crimp on their immoral world view, their socially-damaging hedonistic lifestyles, and their Socialist aspirations.

Many militant atheists on the Internet and on television love to claim that though they scoff at the idea of a God, they are still moral people. They define morality as an innate human understanding of what is universally right and what is universally wrong. To them, belief in a higher power is social weak-mindedness; religion, they argue, is an antiquated construct designed to control and oppress the populace. There is no need for God in modern world, they say. We are enough. We are the arbiters of universal truth.

If the Left’s view of the human condition were true, and mankind was instinctively good, then why do children need to be socialized to think more about their family unit and the greater society than just about their own selfish, narcissistic needs and desires? Surely, children instinctively know right from wrong, correct? But, if mankind intuitively knew universal right from wrong, why are there such disparate differences between human cultures and their values? Why is Life valued so much in the West and not as much (if at all) in the East?

And, if the atheist and the Liberal view of humanity were true, why does mankind even have the capacity for faith? Why did religion even develop? Why didn’t humanity, long ago, emerge from caves with pointy ears and suppressed emotions, speaking of logic and “the burning time?”

The Left uses Cultural Equivalency to dismiss the importance of God in society, and, especially, to denigrate Judeo-Christian American values. By falsely claiming the Founding Fathers did not base this nation’s Constitution on Judeo-Christian principles, the Left is hoping to remove the religious underpinning of our nation. The Separation of Church and State myth is a lie used by the Left (and propagated by their accomplices in the Media) to expedite this end.

America the Beautiful God Bless America. In God We Trust. All these ideas must be abolished by the Left if they are to turn America from a capitalistic representative democracy to a secular Socialist State. Therefore, the idea of American Exceptionalism, which is such a disdainful concept to liberals, must be diminshed and ridiculed.

Liberals do this daily by pointing to other cultures as truly superior to ours because those cultures espouse “progressive” views like strictly secular government (replacing belief in God’s commandments with belief in the almighty State’s laws), respect for others’ values (multiculturalism), and acceptance of multisexual normalcy (or, rejection of the traditional family unit).

The Left has successfully used sex as a political weapon to further their Socialist goals. In California, Senate Bill 777 makes it against the law for educators to use any curricula that contains language that could potentially offend students whose parental lifestyles differ from traditional family lifestyles. Presumably, this makes the phrase “mom and dad” subject to hate crime laws. In this bill, even the question of gender (which never never used to be a question) has been politicized and legislated.

Members of the Transgendered microminority are demanding separate bathrooms at schools so they can feel “comfortable and safe.” They also demand that they be allowed to use any bathroom they wish, because, inside they may be a man or a woman, despite what plumbing they were born with. Never mind that by allowing them to do so, educators might make the majority of other students feel uncomfortable or unsafe.

There are three genders in nature: male, female, and hermaphrodite. In the human species there are supposed to be only two: male and female. However, because there are rare instances when a human is born with an extra set of genitalia, the Left declares there is no such thing as gender. Taking the exception to the rule, Liberals have redefined human sexuality in order to make normal that which is not. And, that which is normal is decried by acronymed activists as “heteronormative.” As if being normal were a shameful, oppressive state of being in this brave new world of theirs.

The mantra of the Left is “If it feels good, it’s good for you.” But, is doing what feels good for the individual always good for society? More often than not, no. In fact, doing what feels good has gotten a lot of individuals in trouble because their actions have a direct and negative impact on those around them. As well it should! New York Governor Eliot Spitzer (Dem) revealed yesterday that he has paid for the services of a prostitution ring. Apparently, for six years. Today, the apologists in the Mainstream Media are gnashing their teeth and blaming American values for this “tragedy.” And, not because the governor’s actions have harmed his wife, daughters, family, and constituents, but because once again America’s Puritanical expectations of ethical behavior on the part of its citizens are damaging the career of a “brilliant man.”

Actually, he is just another a hypocritical politician.  He has run on an anti-corruption platform for years, and now he has admitted to committing egregious acts that run counter to his public proclamations of ethical standards. Yet, Spitzer is not the only hypocrite in Congress. There are politicians on both sides of the aisle who have committed adultery and/or broken the laws they have sworn to uphold. It is truly sad and telling, however, how the liberals in the Mainstream Media are making sickeningly obvious attempts to excuse Spitzer by parading one liberal commentator after an other to tell us how adultery is such a silly reason for forcing him from office. After all, if a French or British, or German politician has an affair, it is a “private issue that wouldn’t even make the eighteenth page of the newspaper. We Americans are the laughingstock of the world. We’re soooo prudish.”

Oh, really? The French weren’t having conniptions over the public and presumably sexual relationship between he and the young model who is now his second wife? And, politician’s indiscretions aren’t really only private. They do affect his/her public actions. Blackmail, for instance, could be used to force an indiscreet politician into pushing through legislation that is counter to the nation’s security or values.

Ironically, the MSM’s modis operandi when covering such revelations of indiscretion on the part of  a Republican politician, is to crucify him for being caught with his pants down (the dirty bastard!). Apologies are demanded, his office must be vacated immediately, and every spokeshole on the alphabet stations make it perfectly clear that those on the Right are clearly devoid of any ethical standards. Meanwhile, the Media turns a blind eye to Democrat evils, and cheerfully report about the latest anti-American attack or protest (all while ignoring pro-American stories and squelching any mention of positive news in Iraq). Nope, no bias there…

So, how has America come to this sorry state of being? Plainly, it is because the Left is using social engineering legislation, biased reportage in our Media, and liberal indoctrination in our schools to erode traditional values. The overwhelming majority of individuals in the Media are self-identified liberals. For anyone not sure what a “liberal” is, it is an anti-Traditional American values member of the far left wing of the Democrat Party who believes in uneducated actor-activist tirades, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, global warming, and Socialism-Communism. Their agenda, therefore, is to eliminate God from the public square and to make citizens dependent on the State. To successfully do so, they must redefine right and wrong.

If what is traditionally right is now viewed as wrong, and what is historically and naturally normal is now abnormal or oppressive, then citizens start to doubt all of their cultural assumptions. Political Correctness is the primary tool for the cultural subversives enacting this confusion. When one is not sure of the validity of one’s positions, that person remains silent. The more Americans who remain silent, the easier it is for the unAmericans among us to continue to wreak havoc on our culture. We must not remain silent any longer. Too much depends on our voices being heard. At the very least, we are rapidly at risk of losing our freedom of self-determination as a people and as individuals.

So, I say, speak up when you know the truth is being redefined as part of the Leftist Agenda! Do. not. be. afraid. any. longer! Express your opinion. It is your RIGHT. Unlike abortion, and licenses for illegal aliens (ahem, Gov. Spitzer!), and municipally-funded parades for gays, your freedom of speech is an actual right enumerated in our Constitution. Do not let anyone take that right away from you. Do not be shouted down. Do not be confused by the subversives and their lies. For God’s sake, educate yourself about our true history and about our Constitution! Yes, for God’s sake.

Because if we abandon God, He will surely abandon us. And rightly so. Do not let the Left redefine right and wrong. And, do not let them tell you there is no right from wrong, as the liberals in England have successfully done to their citizens.

Truth is immutable. And the truth is, what’s right is right, and what’s wrong should always be decried by Society and vigorously punished; even if it puts a crimp in the Godless hedonists’ lifestyles.

Cackling Commies and Socialist Scum

I remember a time, not too long ago, when the idea of Socialism in American politics would have been unthinkable. At least, unthinkable to patriotic Americans. Now, the face of Socialism is laughing (or rather, cackling) at us from New York State as she runs for President of the United States of America.

To say that I am distressed by the flagrant promotion of Socialist ideas by this woman, and by her brethren in the Congressional Democrat Party, is an understatement. I am absolutely appalled. What the hell has happened to politics in this country? Daily, we are assailed by fresh insults to our national character. And, these attacks are not just from the Left.

Weak-willed Republicans pander to “the Center,” but really are just trying to assuage ultra-Liberal operatives. RINOs like these are every bit as deceitful and ruinous as Code Pinko, Moveon.borg, and George “I’m Going to Reshape America” Soros. Who are these damned people to try to change our values and traditions?

They are traitors.

Traitors to American values like self-reliance, self-determination, and love of God. Make no mistake about it: Americans are a faithful and true people. We believe our country stands for sterling principles. Truth, justice, and the American Way is not an “outmoded slogan.” It is a statement; one that encapsulates a very worthy code of ethics, and which helps to define our very way of life.

Yet, the Far Left despises that way of life. Since the Sixties, they have worked in earnest, secretly at first, now unabashedly, to undermine our culture. How self-loathing does one have to be to work against one’s own people? I have pondered this imponderable since 2004, when Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, et al, made it clear they hated our Military and our Country. They undermined our war effort, undermined our Military, and subverted our President. They are traitors. Traitors who bend the truth and change the rules without shame.

Those on the Left have been changing the rules since 2000, when the Democrats started their unrelenting push for power at any cost. When things don’t go their way in Congress, they change procedural rules. When things don’t go their way in elections, they change electorial traditions. When reality doesn’t reflect their skewed view of life, they lie. And lie. And lie. And lie. They besmirch, denigrate, and LIE.

How long will those of us who still believe in the greatness of our country allow these lies to go unchallenged? I’m not talking to the Rush Limbaughs, Sean Hannitys, and Michael Savages of America; you folks have been every bit as patriotic and vocal as we need you to be. No, I’m talking about the other yous: you regular, all-American Joes, like me. When will we finally get off of our collective, silent asses and scream, “Hell no! I will NOT let America go under. I will NOT let liars tell me my country is not exceptional. I will NOT be silent any longer!”

This is our challenge; to be willing to fight this war. It is a cultural war whose outcome will determine the fate of our dear country. It is the greatest war we have fought to date. And, it rages in the hearts and minds of every Patriotic American. I hope you decide to enlist.

As you fight this war, stand fast against the gales of cackling laughter. Be resolute against the soul-sapping Socialist values that are eroding our national character. Be brave! After all, America is still the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. Remember?
