There is a lot of conspiracy related banter these days on ATS and around the globe. Where does this come from? Is any of it true? Why does it exist?
Who really runs things? Can this be changed? The answer is simple. This is a call to action.
What is a (illegal) conspiracy? It is people working together to defraud or deny others something of value. It is also 'unwitting accomplices.'
This is where most people are.
The answers are there. They are all there. Each reader could find the answers. Here is the hanger- it will take physical effort. Yes, away from
the computer screen. Away from the club, bar or club. The answers are hidden in plain sight
* at each and every local government office.
Little bits and pieces of what fits together somewhere to make something work are publicly available.
Surprising isn't it? The local garbage contract that was awarded with no bid! The new job given to Sally Jo without advertising. (She happens to
be the City Manager's daughter but no one complains.) A street contract awarded that ends up paving a street outside the city- $436,000 gone. (The
street just happens to lead to the local, private golf course.)
My tax money- my rights gone and you
focused on Washington! I could be really mad at you for helping them rob me.
*Think of the times some bureaucrat or elected official said:”we published a notice of it.”
Assignments for being a REAL American:
Register to vote.**
There is a fund (look it up yourself) that almost every locality has. This is an 'off-balance-sheet' fund. Think of that. This fund is not
secret, it just is not announced. See if you can locate the fund and amount in your locality.***
Go to at least three (3) local government public meetings,
Write at least two (2) letters to the editor of the local paper relating to local issues only. This doesn't count unless they are published.
Go to at least one (1) public construction project. Spend a minimum of one hour. Get the names, license numbers and phone numbers for the
contractors. Discover how licenses are given in your are.
On the construction project (above), find out the awarded cost. Find out the winning contractor and the sub-contractors.
On the construction project (above), find any other contracts the contractor and major subs (sub-contractor) are involved in together.
**Whether you vote or not, NO ONE in elected or appointed office is going to give you a real ear unless you are on the voter roles. Voting raises
your standing even more. If you are not registered you have proven to the world you are insincere.
***When I inquired relating to the fund in my locality the city comptroller had no idea what I was talking about. I went to the local newspaper and
the editor called the comptroller (I write letters to the editor- they know me). No luck. I found out who the cities auditor was and had the
comptroller call him to announce I would be calling. The auditor was evasive, then downright hostile. I called him back three different times to
finally get a bit of information.
Eventually I ended up with the state. Seems like the funds were managed by a firm the auditor is linked to- say
I called the auditor back and laid out what I had so far. 'Could he - - - hello, hello.' His phone did not answer after that. Back to the city
The auditor quit and the city was awaiting the files.
There wasn't much in the fund. Just a little over $1million. The city council was shocked to say the least. A local move for a sales tax increase
died shortly thereafter.
Sally Jo (way up top), she is back in school. Seems a state ethics complaint was filed and the commission ruled either dad or Sally had to leave.
By following the above list, or something similar you have earned the RIGHT to do two things:
salute the flag and call yourself, an American (or spit on it if you want- you have EARNED the right!(chances are you won't, you will have a renewed
faith in your country and be prouder of your flag than ever before)
The only link in this post is to an ATS thread
that set me off on this. I disagreed
with the initial post in that thread so vehemently I realized that I too needed to re-order my list.
I am always dismayed at the citizenry. People in some countries have risked death just for the opportunity to complain- Tiananmen Square, etc.
I think that the ATS political forum should have a requirement: proof of voter registration before you can enter.
Put up or shut up!
