Thank you for the clarification, but I am disappointed. I had so hoped that some organization was working to remove bush from the white house in
secret or otherwise. Such an organization would certainly be worthy of joining.
Several Bush Administration Bonesmen
Bonesmens part of the Bush administration, include Associate Attorney General Robert D. McCallum, Jr.; Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman
William H. Donaldson; and General Counsel for the Office of Homeland Security Edward E. McNally. You will have to do your own research if you desire
more, I have no time to do more than a cursory search. Let those that have eyes see.
Believe What You Choose
As for your disbelief of what a freemason clearly said to me, it is true. Perhaps his remarks are out of character for a freemason of his station.
Your disbelief makes it no less true.
But enough with the minutiae.
It Is Politics, Not Persecution
This thread started out with a freemason from scotland claiming persecution on the basis that some politicians,presumably non-freemansons ,wish to
require politicians that are freemasons to declare that they are freemasons when running for public office. This is par for the course, politicians
seize upon every bit of gossip, rumor and inuendo to gain a competitive advantage over an opponent. If a freemasonry affiliation fills this
requirement in scotland, I have no doubt it will be used. This is the nature of politics and each politicians has chosen to put himself in the public
eye under the cruel microscope of public scrutiny. However after making the decision to choose public life it either naive or dishonest for a
politician to claim persecution because people wish to look into his life relative to freemasonry or any other subject.
Registering Freemasons: Say It Aint So
As for my wishing to have freemasons register with the government, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact I would scream from the highest
moutains in opposition to the government imposing such a requirement as my political beliefs are libertarian. In line with my political beliefs I have
grave concerns about secrecy within government which makes it easier for government to operate contrary to the will of the people. This is not
paranoia, the people have a legitimate reason for being concerned about government secrecy. If you can not agree that this concern with government is
a legitimate area of inquiry for the people, you are not seeking light, you have your head in a bucket of sand.
Keeping Privacy Private
I have no concern with freemasonry, skull and bones or any other secret organization in the realms outside of the public sector. My concern is that
within government secret organizations would continue to operate in secret and this would be dishonest, corrupt and immoral. The right to
privacy/secrecy ends when a secret society covertly imposes its will via government and infringes on rights of the rest of people in the darkness of
The Presumption Of Innocence
If freemasons are a group of like minded people that work to improve themselves and society in private without clandestinely using government to
impact my life I am your best friend. At this time I have no reason to believe otherwise. I will continue to seek light and knowledge with an open
mind. And above all I will continue to question with no regard for my critics.
