You, America, have not lived up to the treaties and agreements that you made with Native Americans.
You mean 'we' don't you? Of the people for the people by the people?
I agree in general, just wanted to point that out...America is either the sum of its citizens or it is not. It is not an entity without life on its
You voted for those that cut federal spending for school lunches.
Actually, no, personally I have NEVER voted...it seemed hypocritical to choose one evil over another when I was in no position to make it right.
BUT today I registered to vote. I figured that if a person seeks to be elected president, they should probably be listed as a voter. And at the
very least, you get ONE vote!
I expect no response here.
Then hopefully I will be a 'pleasant surprise.'
You cannot expect to have respect until you show yourselves worthy of it.
That is EXACTLY right!
Do you have it in you to change America? Because you are America.
YES I DO.
And I WILL.
YES I AM.
I am liberation incarnate.
I will be America until she can hold her head up with honor on her own....I have no secrets from myself but I do know things about these messes we're
in that I will share freely and without excluding myself or pointing fingers at others.
I will even bear the brunt of those I follow and make no excuses even though I could...I'm not that type.
I see simple solutions and not any true problems. I also don't see anything workable in any situation other than the truth as best as it is
known/understood. And I am not worried about making people mad. Maybe it is good. Purging is long overdue...and then self-examination through the
eyes of the other nations....
There will be no accountability until you hold yourselves accountable. There will be no disclosure until you divest yourselves of
The 911 thing is a global thing...going way back in history. But it can be fixed...no one need pay any further than already has been paid. We must
just FORGIVE unconditionally yet never FORGET what happens when we divide instead of unite....the world fell that day...not just a part or portion.
It was a test of our own mettle...we didn't seek to heal but instead sold out freedom for false security. Terrorists? Show me some and I will show
how friends are made from foes. I mean it.
And I ain't scared of anything. Except losing what was so hard fought to establish less than 300 years ago by noble men with exceptional courage and
vision. I do not want to lose freedom but fear of that is empowering (which is rare for fear to be empowering but for me, in this case, it is).
We are no longer a well loved nation, and if you close your eyes to the reasons for this, we will fall. And the fall will be great.
I wholeheartedly agree! And if American can't lead by example into a peaceful domestic new age...then the world will never have peace, either.
But red white and blue doesn't RULE the world...we have NO right to meddle abroad when we are so scared of our own shadows that we make situations
and then declare war on our own fears.
I refuse to be scared!
Yesterday I struggled to try.
Today I will win.
For the ALL.
And then hopefully go live on Gilligan's island with broadband and a private racetrack and a couple of mopar delicacies or something fun...or maybe
I'll become a rock star!!!
But first I gotta get a job...and maybe some 'glamour shots'.
So, remember my name to write in:
L A Myers-Campos
and I am from New Mexico.
I'm dead serious, too. Vote for me and pray for us all!
Thanks for your post. It was encouraging for me because I feel the same as you. And I can't let it go. I must do what I can. And I know I can and
so I will! For all of us. Because once something is lost...it is gone forever. That would be the true shame!
