With all my heart… February 23, 2018

In the midst of all that has been happening in the world I want to share my thoughts.

I cannot help but think of my own upbringing and what it would be like in this day and age to be young again… what on earth would I be thinking if my countries leadership was a scam, a gameshow, a psychological head-game, where money is more important than peoples lives?

Our own federal government has proven over and over again to the people of this country that their priority is protecting the assets of millionaires/billionaires and nothing else, only the bottom line. We live in a country where lies are second nature, and no one seems to care. Our president is a pathological liar and thousands of people support him.

The only thing our country is number one at is war (to protect the assets of the rich) and the amount of people we have in prisons… can anyone read in-between the lines here? Oh yeah, were number one in gun ownership.

We are more concerned with athletes and sports than we are about education… this one has had me baffled forever. We currently have so called leaders attacking public education, trying their best to make education something only the rich can obtain. There seems to be a strong push to make Americans ignorant, and I have to wonder why?

Our own media bombards us with consumer crap, we are inundated with stuff to buy and waste money on. We are told what to think, where to live, what to wear, how we should behave, what to eat, and most importantly, how to conform to the norm… brainwashing in the most insidious way, through so called “entertainment.” Keep the masses distracted while those with power can find ways to have more power. “Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” To have the means to communicate to the masses through “entertainment” …what would be a better way to have power?

Fear is the number one tool used in marketing, and it works! So how do people in power control the masses?? This is so blatantly obvious, yet people keep falling for it.

The number one reason people fall into poverty is health related, either they, or someone close to them has had a medical, or mental catastrophe and they cannot recover financially. Yet we cannot come up with a solution when other countries have figured it out? All because of greed! Don’t fool yourself, it has everything to do with making the rich richer!!

Fear, greed and ignorance seem to be the way of life, a goal, a means to success in this country, so what would it be like to be a teenager living in this country right now?

When will “we the people” truly stand up for justice, for equality, for the pursuit of happiness for each and every one of us? Until this happens it will be the same as it is now.

I am afraid that the people in this country are too distracted by lies, by fear, by greed to ever have any positive affect in the future, and if I were currently a teenager I would not have much hope
.
This is a plea to anyone who reads this… please help the young people of this country by standing up against tyranny and greed, stand committed for justice for all, and the pursuit of happiness for everyone, not just those who you deem worthy!

We are truly all in this together and if we cannot work together we will surely fall together.

Love and blessings,

Paul

It was a beautiful day in Newport, Oregon yesterday.
Spent some time with my middle daughters family, and Cori, my second to the youngest daughter.
