Is there a candidate who is representative of 100% of Republican ideals OR 100% of Democrat ideals?


Nope probably not many members of either party that do either..

What Does It Mean To Be Politically Independent?

I have concluded of late that I could only consider myself a political independent if there is such a thing. I do not think I should be labeled Republican or Democrat, on the Left or on the Right or any other affiliation except to be a proud citizen of this United States and live by the principles on which this great nation was founded.

As far as I am concerned, our government, as it stands today, is in great need of an overhaul and a wake up call. I firmly believe that if our founding fathers could see the way our government and institutions run today, they would be greatly disturbed and dismayed on how far We The People have strayed from the principles that our republic was built on.

There was a time long ago and at the beginning of our republic and our experiment in democracy, that to serve in public office was considered a privilege and not a right. To serve in public office often meant financial sacrifice to those who gladly served the people and this great country, sacrifice or not.

Today most who serve in public office expect a windfall financially and are mainly interested in the influence they can gain to increase their wealth in office and for when they leave office. Where is the personal and financial sacrifice to serve? They look at their title as a possession and not a privilege. They pontificate to attempt to bend the will of the people to their ways of thinking instead of deriving their actions from the will of the people to whom they profess to serve. Some politicians become so entrenched in their governmental powers; they often feel themselves above the law.

Today’s politicians are a washed in a tsunami of lobbyists, who bend the ears of those in government in order to influence the politicians’ vote that will most benefit the interests of the lobby they represent. How often do we see politicians, who when they leave office, become pawns; working for one lobby interest or the other? Elected federal government officials need to be banned by law from working for a lobby for at least 5 to 10 years after they leave office in order to stop the habit of influence peddling after they in fact leave public office.

I dare say, I lay a good part of the guilt for the perversion of public office on We The People themselves whom have absolved their responsibility to impose and elect officials on their merit and desire to serve the people. They have abdicated their rights by allowing so-called public servants to make their own decisions of policy and directions for the public servants own benefit. “To hell what the people want!” they say. “We know what is best for them. Where would they be without us?” they say as they puff up their chests and proudly strut.

I always thought that there should be some sort of term limitations for all federal elected positions, not just for the presidency. Change is good, as it allows the government to refresh itself on a regular basis by bringing new ideas and approaches to work for the people.

When will We The People ever wake up and demand that the government of the people, for the people, by the people be truly put into the hands of the people and not political demigods’?

I see the slow demise of our republic if We The People are not brought to our senses. Will we follow the demise that history has shown us be-felled other once great nations and peoples? I would say, it is likely, considering the current state of affairs of government and the distance we have traveled from our roots of our democracy and our republic.

Is “The Secret” Really Hush Hush

Is The Secret really a secret? Not anymore!

The movie, “The Secret” released in March of this year has taken the world by storm. Distributed by the internet using a viral marketing model, the film has been downloaded on computers across the globe. In November, two episodes of Larry King Live were devoted to “The Secret”.

So what is The Secret? The secret is a Universal Law known and practiced by secret societies of the rich and powerful for centuries. The “secret” is the Law of Attraction, which teaches that whatever thoughts we hold in our mind, repeat, and attach feeling to, we bring into our reality. It works like a physical magnet to bring into our experience exactly what we think about and to what we attach our emotions. If we think of prosperity constantly for instance, the Law of Attraction says it must come to us. If we think of lack and injustice, that will come to us as well.

While this might sound like mumbo jumbo, you might be surprised to learn that secret societies have practiced The Law of Attraction for centuries. Many of our nation’s founding fathers were members of a secret society know as the Freemasons. Great leaders such as Plato, Newton, Carnegie, Beethoven, Shakespeare, and Einstein Thomas Jefferson, and Ben Franklin reportedly all knew the secret and practiced it. Leaders have also known the power of manipulating the thoughts of the masses through impressing emotion laden thoughts on their minds in order to control them.

After learning about the Law of Attraction by reading the 1920’s classic “The Science of Getting Rich”, the film’s producer, Rhonda Byrne, sought out several modern teachers to learn the techniques that make the Law of Attraction work for us. The basic message is “what we think about and attach our feelings to we bring about”. So in order to retrain our thoughts we use techniques such as visualizations and affirmations to create the feeling of having already having the experience. We retrain our thoughts to focus on our desired result rather than what we are experiencing through habit.

To put the Law of Attraction to work, we must first understand that we have two minds; the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind can accept or reject a thought, while the subconscious mind can only accept a thought. The subconscious mind can not distinguish fact from fiction or reality from fantasy.

Starting at the beginning of life, our subconscious mind develops a certain set of beliefs or paradigms. Thoughts impressed upon our subconscious mind before are about eight years old are largely accepted because we have not developed the conscious mind. For example, if a child hears, “You’ll never amount to much” before he or she developed a conscious mind, then the mind will believe that thought to be truth. Sadly, without retraining his or her mind, that paradigm or belief system will continue to create exactly that experience.

Most of us…well all of us… have limiting beliefs that we repeat constantly in our subconscious mind. They are like a looping cassette tape constantly repeating the same thoughts. The good news it we can retrain our minds to harness the incredible power of the Law of Attraction to bring new experiences in our lives. We can just as naturally create prosperous and joyful mental cassette tapes. The law works for everyone, and for every thought, in exactly the same way. Good or bad. Productive or destructive. It’s all the same to the Law of Attraction. The Law simply brings thought (any thought) into form. It sounds simple, but releasing old limiting beliefs is complex process, because the subconscious mind fights change.

I recently received an email from a man who said, “You mean to tell me if I glue a fake check for a million dollars to my ceiling and stare at it, I’ll get a million dollars?” I find that hard to believe.” My answer was no and yes. The act of attaching a check to the ceiling and staring at it is not likely to create any changes. However, if he were to consistently visualize what that money would do for his life, and begin to “feel” what it would be like to have that experience, then yes, it would come to him.

In takes about 30 days of consistent visualizing and stating affirmations to change beliefs in the subconscious mind. Once new thoughts are impressed upon it, we begin to act on those thoughts and create a new vibration that attracts a new experience.
