America In Trouble II

A local veteran named Ski Ingram recently authored an article that was published in a local newspaper for seniors.

Quoting Mr. Ingram, he wrote “The Preamble to our Constitution tells us the purpose of our Constitution is “to form a more perfect Union.” It goes on to list five principles to help ensure that America becomes a “perfect Union.” They are (1) establish justice, (2) ensure domestic tranquility, (3) provide for the common defense, (4) promote the general welfare, and (5) secure the blessings of liberty for all.” He goes on to explain that many; from our founding fathers to the men and women of today, have risked and often give everything for our freedom, YOUR FREEDOM and mine.

 

 He like me is concerned that our freedoms are being eroded at a rapid rate. I could not agree more! We can see it every day and if you care about being free it is really frightening to watch.


I have been very concerned for a long time. You, my fellow citizens, are on a path to lose all your freedoms, not just those already taken. You and your children or theirs are on a path to become slaves to a socialistic dictator at some future time. Can you even imagine the following event as described by Mr. Ingram, 

 

“You know something is amiss when parents who are attending School Board meetings are arrested by the police and labeled as domestic terrorists for trying to understand what is being taught to their children in school.” That us is happening in the USA right now.

                                “First, they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they                                             came for  he trade unionist, and I did not speak out -- because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came                                    for the Jews, and I did not speak out -- because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me -- and there was                                     no one left to speak for me.” Martin Niemoller -- Mr. Niemoller spent 7 years in a Nazi  prison bcause                                          he simply did not agree with Hitler and spoke out about it.

                                    “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold. Its patriotism, its morality, and its                                                   spiritual life. If we can undermine those three areas, America will collapse form within.” Joseph Stalin                                       An evil man that murdered millions of his own people, but he was, and still is, correct.

Our two-party has become corrupted. One, seems to be only interested in money and the bottom line and the other, seems to be either interested only in power or even maybe the destruction of this great land. I have concluded that the only answer is to vote for America and NOT for any party. I would like to invite you to join me in doing just that. Look carefully at all candidates and decide on which is best to keep America Free.

 

 Let us not listen to what they might say they will do for us, --- Let’s tell them what they will do for us, or we will find someone who will. Let’s get rid of career politicians milking the system year after year. Let’s get term limits installed. Make sure the constitution and bill of rights are followed as written. Let’s make sure elections are honest. Let’s make sure the courts Interpret the law and not write the law. Let’s get the government back to THE PEOPLE. Let us do all that and more by getting 10 people to agree with us, then have them get their own 10, and on from there, let’s keep getting all the groups of 10 possible and we may be able to save this great land. We are closer to losing it than you might imagine. Please, remember that “A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have.” Thomas Jefferson and REMEMBER “The government has no money, only what it takes from us – THE PEOPLE.” Make sure they spend it wisely.

 I want to see a tidal wave of people working to save this country from becoming the communistic dictatorship is headed for. And I think we can do it 10 people at a time.

 

 

This country was founded on Judeo/Christian values. God was in our pledge of allegiance, our schools our courts and our lives. Look at today’s values. Watch Red Skelton on You Tube as he talks about the pledge of allegiance. Look at the empty churches and then read about our Lack of morality. 

 

 

 

Still not convinced ------ Read on………………..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

President Harry S. Truman, My favorite President of all time, said “I doubt if there is any problem in the world today – social, political, or economic- that would not find a happy solution if approached in the spirit of the sermon on the mount.”   And that was about 70 years ago
.
“Show me a man that gets rich by being a politician and I’ll show you a crook.” Also, President Truman. - Absolutely true.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don’t think.  Adolf Hitler – An evil man that killed millions but was also correct.

 

“Let me control the textbooks, and I will control the state.” Adolf Hitler – Again Evil speaking the truth. What are your kids learning in school today?

 

 

Vote America this next election and every one after that “Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties” Abraham Lincoln – A great Man speaking the truth

Still doubtful? Ok! But read the Constitution and Bill of Rights and then I suggest you study and research some history about - Mao Tse-Tung in China – Pol Pot leader of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, - Kim II-Sung and Kin Jong-Il in North Korea. If you prefer, I recommend the following books --- Nothing to Envy, Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick; --- First They killed My Father, by Luong Ung about Cambodia: --- and on China” Mao: The Unknown Story and Wild Swans both by Jung Chang, Also Dreams of Joy by Lisa See is an excellent source of information. Read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Revolution, the Alinsky Model, and the Antifa manual. You and I will agree we are blessed to live the Greatest Land ever known to man. 
Are you willing to lose it?    

 

OUR NATION IS INDEED IN TROUBLE AND WE BETTER SAVE IT. 

 
Still in doubt? Then read "Justice Or Revolution by Leslie Bates" Mrs. Bates is a local woman and a member of my church. She has done a tremendous job of researching for this book and has many references if you are so inclined to look them up yourself. This small book is for sale on Amazon for about $5.00 I think.

 

 It is frightening to see the comparison to the takeover in other nations and now ours, I can easily see America becoming a communist regime unless it is stopped; and it is up to us, the people of this country, to fix it or pay the price for doing nothing.

 

Thanks for  looking and we will really appreciate your help if you get involved and fight for our country as others have done in the past and still are today. It is quite unbelievable to me that such a thing would even be possible, but my judgment says it is real and we are losing the war

How you can help

Invite at least 10 others to join and help us.

Send it to Politicians, CEO's, Corp Leaders, and executives.

Advise them we will not vote for, buy from, nor support any who will not help to keep us free.

At least try to buy USA made products.

Vote in every election

To the extent possible, never buy anything made in China.

Avoid voting party lines,

Vote for individuals who are listening to us.

let us all know your own ideas etc..

 

​                             Let’s talk about Gun Control

It is important to note that the second amendment was intended to protect the people from a tyrannical government, not from each other. While gun violence is a serious issue in the united States, the Second Amendment was not written to promote violence or t allow people to settle disputes with firearms INSTEAD IT WAS WRITTEN TO ALLOW THE PEOPLE A PROTECRTON FROM A TYRANNICALE GOVERNMENT!!

James Madison, who later became the fourth President of the United States, was the primary author of the Second Amendment. Madison, along with other Founding Fathers, was concerned about the possibility of a tyrannical government. They had just won a hard-fought battle for independence from British rule, and they were well aware of the dangers of a government with unchecked power. Madison believed that a well-armed citizenry was necessary to prevent the government from becoming tyrannical. He drafted the Second Amendment to ensure that the people had the right to keep and bear arms to defend themselves against a tyrannical government.

In conclusion, the Second Amendment was written by James Madison to allow the people a way to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. The amendment was also designed to ensure that the states had a well-regulated militia that could defend them against any federal encroachment on their rights. While the Second Amendment has been subject to much debate and controversy, it is clear that it was not written to promote violence or to allow people to settle disputes with firearms. Instead, it was written to ensure that the people had the means to protect themselves from a government that might become oppressive.

Arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside…" Samuel Adams "…

No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to congress a power to disarm the people. William Rawle"

The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.  James Mason       

The constitution shall never be construed...to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." ― Alexander Hamilton

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence." George Washington:

Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion for the defense of the country, the overthrow of tyranny, or private self-defense." John Adams: "

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."                                                                                                     “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery." Thomas Jefferson:

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." Benjamin Franklin

"…to disarm the people ― that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them." George Mason:

                My thoughts on gun control

I AM 84 YEARS OLD AND HAVFE A PHD FROM THE COLLEGE OF LIFE EXPERIENCE.

I have owned or been around all sorts of weapons my entire life. I have owned guns since I was 12 years old. In all my life I have never seen nor heard of a gun of any type deciding to shoot anyone and so it paced itself up an went out and did so. The idea that guns kill people is a weak, false one. Guns have not, nor will they ever KILL PEOPLE. People often kill people with guns, but It is the person shooting or careless with a gun that kills.

What need to change is the person shooting and how will we do that. I would suggest getting God back in our classrooms, Start teaching the golden rule, patriotisms. love of country, and family, responsibility, how to lose, as well as win .

 

Efforts to limit by Gun Control or agreeing with that idea and saying who can or cannot own a gun is a slippery slope that one day we will wish we had never stepped on. That is exactly what the socialists and communists want. Once we are disarmed the rest will move much faster.

 

IF anything, my solution would be more guns. I would make sure every child and teacher had a basic understanding of guns and what they can do. They all would receive instruction on how to handle a gun incident, every classroom would have two fully loaded 20-gauge pump shotguns secured in a locked box of some type, if anyone fired any weapon or even threatened to do so a button would be pushed, and that box would open. the teacher would take one and a 6th grade or older child would take the other. that student would then proceed to a predetermined lower grade classroom and assist that teacher in making sure everyone was safe. Other safety equipment could also be considered. Yes, accidents and errors in judgment would occur over time but I can assure you, you would never see mass shootings in our schools like we do today.

 

                       My thoughts on Elections

Sept 2022

The upcoming election may be the most important one in our lifetime. If you took time to review my website on America in Trouble you should realize just how important it may be to you and your family. That said: elections are also the easiest way to Take Our Country Back

Fair and truthful elections are indeed the foundation of a free people. We are all lax at times and I am no exception, and we can all and should do better at reviewing the candidates and making sure what and just who we are voting for. 

I personally disagree with every politician I have researched so far, however, on how elections should be conducted. One party wants it open to almost everyone that has once or now can talk or breath, the other party is not far behind. Easy is their theme. Mail in ballots for all. That to me is wrong. I am old school, and I remember going to the polls with my parents and waiting and waiting for them to vote. They never once complained. Many complain “I’m busy, I can’t get there, It takes too long etc. etc.” One excuse is as weak as the next. Mary and Joseph, you recall, had to go about 90 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem just to pay their taxes. That I imagine was about a 4-day trip walking and riding on a donkey, but they did it because it was the law. Our right to vote is indeed a privilege and a blessing and if it is difficult for us – “well to bad” -- get off your backside and do it anyway. we should want to do it but if not, we should all be required to vote and suffer the consequences if we cannot be bothered.

I will agree that some or all of the following solutions should be considered.

1. All US citizens should be required to prove their eligibility to vote prior to voting.

2. The voting age should be 21.

3. All voting should be in person at a polling station. Never by mail without real justification and it must be provable.

4. All US citizens of voting age should be required to vote in every election. If they miss 2 in a row they must requalify and if they miss 3 in a row, they will lose their citizenship and all associated benefits for XX years until they could apply for citizenship just as any foreigner would have to do.

5. Patriotism and voting privilege should be taught in our schools, and we should understand what a blessing it is that WE CAN INDEED VOTE.

6. Voting at a polling center would eliminate some of the voter fraud that we hear so much about. Hire more poll workers, with more polling locations and use good old paper ballots. Counting can be verified etc., and it eliminates the chance for hackers etc. to control the outcome.

7. Example: a write in candidate for the next election in my area has said she is concerned because one candidate in the last election was defeated by a total of 10 votes out of 8500 votes cast, when that same candidate enjoyed a 60% approval rating of 1000 audited voters, and the request for a recount was not approved.

The people who cast the votes don't decide an election, the people who count the votes do -----

 

A recent study I am told showed only a 35% voter turnout. That is shocking to me. The Apathy in our country will destroy us if nothing else does. Whatever and however it is done, a change is needed in our voting system, and we need it NOW.

                                         March 2023

I have already expressed my thoughts on how important I think our elections. But how should we conduct a fair and truthful election? Here are my ideas.  Why not declare election day a State and National holiday. Yes, I think it is that important. Employers would be required to give needed employees time to vote. Why not get away from all the electronic stuff that can be hacked etc. or rigged in favor of a chosen candidate or party? Why not do it the old fashion way? We could hold elections at our local schoolhouses which would all be empty because of the holiday, and they are relatively close to everyone, so people could walk to them. That way and we could also eliminate the most mail in voting.

Hire poll workers or ask for volunteers to get the job done. All registered voters would be accepted. Many would be known by the poll workers, both parties could have a senior representative to oversee the workers. More workers could [with supervision] be counting the votes each hour and logging the totals for each hour. Voters not living in that school area could still vote but that vote would be held in abeyance until verified absolutely by that voter’s school area. Within an hour of the polls closing the result for each school should be ready and sent to a local precinct. Certainly, we could get rid of 3 days of waiting for results.

It would eliminate the excuse that “I have no way to get there” for almost everyone.

 

It would eliminate the expensive cost of buying, maintaining and upgrading electric machines. 

Much of the cost would go into salaries for local people so could add a little [however small] to each community budget.

How about the national debt and taxes

MY TOUGHTS ON TAXES AND GOVERNMENT SPENDING

                         

                            OUR NATIONAL DEBT     

Let me begin by emphasizing; THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO MONEY! None, zip, zilch, none at all, only what it collects in TAXES. OR PRINTS MAKING IT LESS VALUABLE. And who pays those taxes. Read on: -----

 

There is a cost for every dollar the US spends. Let us look at the recent stimulus as an example. The government spent almost 2 trillion dollars on it.

 

Our current national debt is approximately $28 trillion dollars. That divided by 332 million US citizens = approximately $86,447 per US citizen That amount compared to our 1400 stimulus payment equals 61% negative income to debt ratio. Son verify those figures

The National Debt Clock says that "debt per citizen" is currently $87,124. But there's more, much more. That $28. trillion ignores Social Security and Medicare's current and future COSTS. In other words, by showing how much we would each owe if it were up to us to pay it back. how-much-you-would-have-to-contribute-to-pay-off-your-country-s-debt is a according to “Katharina Buchholz , Feb 16, 2023. The average person in the U.S. is around $96,400 in debt.” For a family of 6 that means $578,400 is due. /When and how are you planning to pay yours? municipal

So, who is the money owed to and who is going to pay it--- that is an interesting question. The best I could come up with is; most of it is owed to CHINA!!!!!!!!!!!. No wonder Biden’s so was so heavily engaged over there. The politicians will argue they will tax the corporations and wealthy but think about it. The corporations are in business to make money not spend it. They will of course relocate jobs overseas costing US jobs and/or increase the cost of their goods or services to be paid by who? Oh yah, you and me the consumer. And as for the wealthy, they are not wealthy by being stupid. They will move their money offshore and hire tax lawyers and use political donations to minimize their costs. And so, who pays ultimately? You and me of course. One reason I try to never

buy anything made in China. Not always successful but I try.

When are we as a nation going to start thinking????

 

Why not insist sone of the billionaires paying what they owe now and maybe give incentives of some sort for paying more than they currently owe.
