The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Knowledge Conquers Fear

Dear Editors:

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

People are being persuaded to vote for Republicans due to lies which create fear. If they don’t vote for Republicans, the grip of fear makes them uncomfortable to vote at all, so the Republicans win. The Republicans. The ones who gave us a SCOTUS which did not do justice, but dictated Citizens United upon us so Republicans can line their pockets with corporate PAC money. Democrats who don’t take such money are defeated by the fear factor of lies and slander of those opposed to Republicans. Republicans who lead the charge as “sheep in wolves clothing” and making everyone believe the government is at fault. The government is NOT at fault because, today, it is controlled by corporate PAC money emanating from lovers of money, the leaders of the “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” The Republicans calling themselves conservative do not agree with what this 18th-Century conservative said. They are not conservatives because true conservatives don’t want to invoke what existed in the past with regard to bigotry against race, religion, sexual identity. A true conservative looks at history and wants to LEARN from history because knowledge is more power than money because it also helps to eliminate the fear factor caused by liars and slanderers.

A bumper sticker incorrectly identifies with what Reagan said in 1981.  That government is the problem.  Wrong.  And I have evidence, proof and facts which demonstrate it is wrong.  Today, government is not the problem. For us “sheep-like” ones, too many are being mesmerized as it is. The corporate oligarchy created by supply-side Reaganomics and Alito and Scalia on the SCOTUS are the real problems.  They have destroyed capitalist competition, especially that from small businesses which built this nation. They line the pockets of Republicans with corporate PAC money, while Democrats attempt to win without such money.  The problem is NOT a government full of wolves, but a government controlled by corporate PAC money and people who are wolves in sheep’s clothing who put like type people – wolves in sheep’s clothing – into Congress.  Lovers of money, an evil aspect, have too much control. 

A bumper sticker identifying “wolves” with government is wrong.  With all due respect to those who are mesmerized by such a thing.  The bumper sticker should read, “the sheep are being controlled with false information by the corporate/business oligarchy consisting of sheep in wolves clothing.” 

Such wolves are handing out corporate PAC money to support their pitiful personal interests only.  They do this while taking money from the “sheep-like” who have invested for long-term capitalist investments in the form of pooled resources such as pensions, Social Security and Medicare. 

The bumper sticker about wolves and government is created by the lovers of money who mesmerize sheep-like ones into thinking the wrong people are eating their lunch and perhaps eating the sheep, too. 

Note the quote from Edmund Burke, a conservative from about two centuries ago. Here is a quote from an 18th-Century CONSERVATIVE.

———————————“Love your neighbor as yourself.” “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” “The problems of the world are not that some people love in a different way. The problems are that so many people don’t know how to love at all (CGA, 1970).” A Puritan is someone in fear that someone, somewhere, is having a good time. “Liberty and justice for all [not priorities on individual and selfish rights].” “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  “We the people, in order to form a more perfect union [and overall wealth of American society]…” 
​Benjamin Franklin: “​Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are ​affected.” Stacey Abrams: “Compromise about actions, but not about values.”  Oscar Wilde: “​​​I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.”  Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” Benjamin Franklin: “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”  Whoopi Goldberg: “To handle this COVID-19 pandemic effectively, we all need to get on the same page.”  Note: To be clear, I do not like being patronized. I do not express my disdain over what happens to my fellow humans just for my own sake and to pursue favors and handouts. I do it in order to gain R – E – S – P – E – C – T for me and for millions of other Americans of any race, ethnicity, religious belief, or sex and sexual identity who try to walk in integrity as they attempt to achieve, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  PERIOD.  One nation under God [our Creator] with liberty and justice for all.
