BIG GOVERNMENT SPENDING
PROTECTING THE TRUTH
I think you can make this into a bipartisan project. This deals with one of the most emotional issues of Republicans and Democrats. Both believe the other side is lying. But there is no nonpartisan, independent referee for this contest.
When it comes to politics, how it legal to lie? It is illegal to lie about a product or service. Why is it legal to lie about the record of a politician or a ballot measure? These are decisions that reach the level of life and death when it comes to funding programs, going to war, etc. When yes means no on a ballot proposition or you can lie about the documentable record of a candidate then my right to make an informed decision, the ability to give my informed consent to be governed is taken away and thus my vote has been stolen. In effect democracy has been stolen.
“I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”~Michael Jordan, Chicago Bulls
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” Anne Frank 1929-1945
Please share anything I write that helps people smile, think, share, care or imagine a better world.
Posting: My page has been protected by a Positive Energy Shield. So if you find that any negative, cynical or angry comments you’ve shared on it have disappeared it is very likely they just didn’t “stick” to the page due to the protective shield that is currently in place. I respect your right to see things differently. That said, if you don’t have anything positive to say, please try harder to find something. If you don’t like an idea I’ve proposed to try to make a difference in the world then please feel free to suggest one of your own or a way to improve on my idea and I’ll do my best to be supportive. If I propose a project and you don’t want to be a part of it rather than telling me about why you think it won’t work, please practice a little patience with me and wait until I propose one that you would like participate in and post your constructive, creative, positive comments on that one! I come up with a lot of ideas so I’m sure I’ll eventually come up with one you can put your wonderful positive energies into!
I appreciate people who share post about the problems we face as a society and Country. What I respect and appreciate most are people who seek out and share ideas for solutions to our problems! Please let me know about the issues you care deeply about so we can find a way to make progress together on them. I promise I will do my best to support you!
Please do not post any hateful or mean spirited comments on my posts. We will get nowhere by tearing each other down and bashing people. In fact I do believe we get what we focus on most! Focus on solutions and the people and groups creating them and we will give our energy to that, focus on the problems and problem people of the world and we give our energy to them.
Please do not post hateful comments and posts about the State of Israel if you have any interest in working with me or staying a friend. I am Jewish, I have family there, I don’t agree with everything the Government there does but I do love the Israeli people and Country. I hope to see a day when their is are two States side by side living in peace and prosperity where everyone is free from hate, hunger and fear. If this is a problem for you I wish you well but feel free to unfriend me or not add me. I will defriend you if you post stupid lies about Israel and support the terrorist Organization of Hammas. Again if you have a problem with that don’t request my friendship.
