Is NC ready for Health, Prosperity & LIBERTY?

Greetings NC Legislators!

Receiving a recent email from John Dudley of Americans for Prosperity caused me to consider a few thoughts that I am compelled to share with you all.

In regards to his concerns, I certainly hope this move toward extracting natural gas in NC will be done in a way that is safe for all of us.  Being a libertarian, I'm a proponent of maximizing the free market — but not at the expense of violating the natural rights of others to do so, and pollution is one form of doing so.  I have a difficult time believing that there is no safe and effective method of extracting natural gas.

But I have a major problem with both special interest groups and certainly with our elected officials with regard to playing the "blame game" in this so called "left" VS "right" nonsensical paradigm.  I continue to find that both "sides" of the political duopoly are often perfectly willing to violate the natural rights of individuals.

Case in point:  Why does it seem that thus far there are only Democrats stepping up to the plate in support of H1161 (the medical marijuana bill)?

It would seem that there would be at least a handful of Republicans in our NC State Legislature who might be a proponent of:

• Creating new jobs in non-government markets;

• Fostering new small businesses;

• Raising revenue without raising taxes;

• Keeping NC from economically falling further behind other states (like SC, for example) whose legislatures have recently voted to RE-legalized both industrial hemp AND medical marijuana;

• RE-etablishing the individual natural right to seek health remedies outside of Obamacare and the "Medical Industrial Complex";

• Taking a step toward Ending the War on Drugs People who find marijuana as enjoyable as alcohol yet far safer.


And Democrats reading this message, please don't think you're off the hook in any of this.  Why have you given your supporters such hope during election times, yet sat idly by doing absolutely nothing to move the medical marijuana initiative forward for what, 70+ years that you've been in power over the NC Legislature?

Only now that Republicans have gained control in NC do SOME Democrats finally make any effort to support the health, prosperity and LIBERTY of NC residents through such an initiative — and those who are doing so, THANK YOU!

But being privy to political gaming I also have to wonder... knowing that by and large Republicans have been seemingly more pro-prohibition (in recent years anyway, in spite that the Democrats instituted Prohibition in the 20's), might these recent actions be merely yet another example of such a political stunt whereby Democrats are wagering they might be able to point their collectivist finger at Republicans for not caring about our health, prosperity and liberty, in hopes of regaining their helm of control over the NC Legislature over future elections?  As if We North Carolinians are completely ignorant of the fact that the Democrats have done nothing in this effort all these decades.

I certainly hope this is not the case, because I have two friends now that have been diagnosed with terminal cancer – one pancreatic and one brain cancer.  I also just became privy to the information about Simpson-cannabis oil (http://www.simpson-oil.com/index.html) and how it has served to cure thousands of people who were diagnosed with terminal cancer.  In fact, a friend of mine knows someone who upon being diagnosed as such with brain cancer, began the Simpson treatment and after only months his brain tumors were gone and is still living to this day with his family.

Make no mistake, to the extent NC Legislators resist the RE-legalization of medical marijuana, is the degree to which they are sealing the fate of terminal cancer patients.  It's as if these legislators DESIRE for North Carolinians to be unhealthy, and I cannot understand how such people can even sleep at night knowing that they are part of the cause for so many people's death without giving them their natural right to seek alternatives to the barbaric corporation/government mandated method of cancer (and other) treatments.

Further, to the extent NC Legislators resist the RE-legalization of marijuana and industrial hemp in general, is the degree to which they are stifling prosperity and liberty in NC.

What will it take to remedy this Draconian situation?  Must North Carolinians create an unaffiliated PAC which will be a watchdog for all legislators who refuse to improve the health, prosperity and liberty of those who reside in our state?

Because if it takes replacing those among the NC Legislature with representatives who actually care about the well being of North Carolinians, then we will easily do so at the ballot box, because we all know that there are far more people in NC — Unaffiliated, Republicans, Democrats, & Libertarians — who are for health, prosperity & liberty, than there are against.

The proverbial ball is now in your court...

Memorial Day Thoughts

Christian cop loses appeal – must attend mosque

———

Not surprising at all when considering that the "Neo-Amerikan" IN-justice system cares not about natural rights & liberty. The gov't school system & controlled media has done such a great job of indoctrinating the masses into Collectivist philosophy, that they largely believe people are to obey most any decision made by the three corrupt branches of gov't.

I likened such tyrannical actions to those of Nazi Germany the other day & a friend of mine became offended and now assumed I'm entirely ignorant. He is a perfect example of how people commonly believe it's ok to vote away ones natural rights and that the only recourse Americans should have is our vote -- our vote in an entirely corrupt election process. But of course, he doesn't believe the corruption is as great as I know it to be.

Of course, he doesn't have my experience either. After being very engaged throughout the Ron Paul 2008 & 2012 races, I KNOW how the entire process is fully corrupted from the media picking the "top tier" contenders, to the fraud committed within the partisan duopoly breaking it's own legally bound election/convention rules, to the plurality voting system which mandates a two party only system.

But beyond this, he -- certainly like many others -- cannot see the similarities present in "Neo-Amerika" to that of Nazi Germany. Apparently, unless the death toll of innocents must reach the millions before any nation can be likened to Naziism. Apparently all the deaths due to the various endless wars Neo-Amerika wages, like the "War on Drugs" for example, hasn't taken enough lives yet to earn a title likened to "Nazi". And in spite of all the various examples of police brutality with impunity doesn't also ring a bell.

I attempted to explain that my comment was more about DIRECTION. I also tried to explain that all those evil "isms" -- Socialism, Communism, Fascism, etc. -- all fall under the philosophy of Collectivism and lead to nothing but totalitarianism like Nazi Germany.

But no... I'm the one who needs to better educate myself because I don't know what I am talking about! 8-)

Everything is just fine here. There is no growing militarized police state. There is no cartel of central banks who perpetuate debt/poverty among the masses who can take your property with no accountability whatsoever. The JFK Assassination, Waco, Ruby Ridge, the OK City bombing, and 9/11 all happened the way the rulers say they did -- because they never lie. The people of CN are dangerous for responding the way they did when the Gov threatened to take away their firearms. And the ranchers in NV are domestic terrorists for arming themselves in attempts to protect their financial security from a handful of bureaucrats and the Nine Wraith Judges in Mordor (D.C.).  -- This is what I'm being asked of my fellow Americans to believe...?

Today we honor all those who serve & who have served in the American armed forces -- those who took an oath to protect & defend the sacred natural rights of all individuals and to uphold the Constitution which legally guarantees those rights and limits the power of the State.

But if the State has grown corrupt to the point where it no longer serves to fulfill such duties, then what kind of nation does our armed forces truly serve?

The public servants who act as lords over We the People through massive corruption do a great disservice to those in our armed forces who put their lives on the line for our liberty. Most men & women who serve are fresh out of the Collectivist indoctrination factories we call "High School", so it is very difficult for them to fully understand how they are often being used as military pawns for the globalists to advance their agenda.

It is up to the People of this nation to break out of the Collectivist indoctrination, see through its deception, and embrace Individualist philosophy whose fruit is liberty... and then help others see the beautiful light of liberty granted to us by our Creator.

We the People are NOT owned by the State, nor should we ever bow down to obey (and therefore worship) any State as a god.

This is my Memorial Day prayer -- that We the People honor all those who put their lives on the line for our sacred & natural rights by pledging to educate ourselves more about the philosophy of liberty, and share this most blessed gift with others.

Godbless LIBERTY!

Civitas Media Honors Privacy

Statement from the CEO
Civitas Media never had any plans or intentions of publishing in print or online lists of holders of “conceal and carry” permits.  Nor will Civitas Media develop databases of permit holders.  A poorly crafted internal memo meant to highlight editorial discussions and planning incorrectly indicated that such a database was being planned; it has been considered and rejected.

Michael C. Bush, CEO
http://civitasmedia.com

———

Dear Mchael C. Bush, Civitas Media CEO,

I just wanted to write to say thank you for rejecting the horrible violation of privacy which someone in your organization considered with regard to publishing personal and private information of "conceal and carry" permit holders.

I hope this incident will also provide an opportunity for educating perhaps the younger members of your staff regarding the importance of upholding the right to privacy, as granted to each and every individual by his Creator.

While the ever changing American government enacts moot attempts to minimize crime, it is worth considering that we who have complied with its illegal and immoral demands to be 'permitted' for what is really a natural right have done so against our will — we would have never voluntarily given the State such private information.

As with each and every violation of natural rights, there are always negative consequences.  For example, due to the State's mandate of issuing "conceal and carry" permits and building a database of such records, some people have become confused thinking that "public records" are those which everyone has a right to access, but of course, this is not the case.  Americans also give the State personal and private financial data against our will, but no "Transparency Act" can give the general public the right to access such data.

Further, the consequences of anyone publishing such data could certainly include the criminal targeting of homes for theft where firearms likely reside, and/or criminal targeting of homes whose owners might not have such defenses.

Certainly, most people would not have the intention to put innocent Americans at risk of burglary or worse, but without giving heed to the importance of protecting our natural rights, as history continues to show, negative consequences are inevitable.

Thank you again for honoring the right to privacy of Americans.  I can only hope such examples as yours will help others act accordingly.

Considering Election/Voting Fraud


All this debate over voting identification, yet it's only the tip of the iceberg regarding "election/voting fraud".

To being with, the voting system itself — the plurality voting system — perpetuates a duopoly partisan system by introducing the spoiler effect, candidate cloning, and the wasted vote syndrome (see RangeVoting.org to learn more).

Next, we have black box voting in various states, which is not only often in violation of State Constitutions, but has been shown to be unreliable at best and rigged at worst (check out HBO's "Hacking Democracy"  http://www.hackingdemocracy.com ).

Then there is the "debate" folly.  If anyone actually thinks the "debates" aren't controlled in a way to prevent non-duopoly candidates from being involved, while crafting the Q's & A's to make crooks and liars look good to the American voters… then perhaps you should not vote anyway!  8-)  (or perhaps you should watch "Who's Afraid of an Open Debate?"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1NXhoP5bQ2M#! )

And let's not forget about the media, who begins selecting "top tier" candidates in the Primary race nearly a year before the public does, thus leading ignorant voters.  In some cases "journalists/reporters" have blatantly stated to the public that certain candidates cannot win.  Some news networks have even altered or omitted data as election results were reported.

Regardless of all, people don't turn out for the most important election anyway — the Primaries — when there is a chance of beating the "establishment Republicrat" (you know, the duopoly candidate that the political party helps to win).  People only really turn out for the General election when they can ONLY vote for ONE authoritarian collectivist or the OTHER (evil VS evil).

Yet, the foolish debate over voting identification goes on.

Perhaps the masses deserve to continue playing the fool if their votes can be so blatantly manipulated in such a corrupted election system, when all they can focus on in this matter is voter identification.


More Fool We.

Trayvon & Zimmerman Tragedy


My thoughts regarding the Trayvon & Zimmerman tragedy are perhaps best conveyed through an online dialog I had at Huffington Post:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/24/ted-nugent-racist_n_3646681.html?show_comment_id=271941657#comment_271941657

My posted comment:

how is “dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe" a racist statement, yet "white cracker" isn't?

the only thing Nugent is off base in criticizing here are people who smoke marijuana — apparently a major flaw in his understanding of liberty.

the people among the pathetic media who call themselves "journalists" are the ones that should be REMOVED from their positions for continually feeding into the political BS that is dividing this country.

and the sheeple who buy all the media BS should get a clue, but they don't. perhaps they believe it's "NORMAL" to use photos of the "victim" at 13 years of age in order to gain sympathy.

the Trayvon-Zimmerman matter has again proven that whenever it's convenient for the authoritarian collectivists to sidestep the heart of an issue, they will — this time under the guise of "racism", when that wasn't even a factor in the entire tragedy... a tragedy which could have been avoided if Trayvon had communicated to Zimmerman, rather than electing to set up an ambush.

violence begets violence. i just hope others learn from this incident that it's NEVER OK to attack someone, even if being followed.

i carry nearly all of the time. if someone ever attacks me, i won't hesitate to protect myself... PERIOD!

so keep sleeping if you want to Neo-Amerian Sheeple! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.... 8-)


One commenter replied:

Quote: "a tragedy which could have been avoided if Trayvon had communicated to Zimmerman, rather than electing to set up an ambush." 

Really? Despite no witness backing this up, you know this is what happened because why? Solely based on Zimmerman claim that this is what happened. How about, a tragedy which could have been avoided if Zimmerman had stayed in his car and obeyed the dispatcher who told him not to follow Martin? And as for violence begetting violence, what about Zimmerman’s past including, regular use of Racial Slurs, Domestic Abuse, and Resisting Arrest? He is an “Angel” though, right?


My response:

of course, i don't *know* exactly what happened.  and let's face facts, neither of these guys were "angels".  but i can only make conclusions based upon those few facts which were evidenced.

for example, based upon the initial phone conversation with the police, it appears to be fairly obvious to me that Zimmerman's intent was never to hurt anyone, otherwise he wouldn't have called the police to begin with.  he was apparently concerned about the recurring theft that was going on in the neighborhood, and perhaps the safety of his uncle, and wanted the police to get there ASAP.

… or he was acting the entire time, having the true intent of taking a life that night.

he also apparently didn't want a potential thief suspect to get away without being questioned by the police.  i would feel likewise, as there have been a string of scooters stolen in my neighborhood — two of which from my property — and we've had continued recent visits from "gangsta wannabe's" casing my property since.  thieves SHOULD BE afraid of being shot when trespassing.

personally, i would have shouted at such a suspect in order to ascertain his intent while on the phone with the police.  and yes, the entire tragedy might have been avoided.  but then again, do we know if the two men didn't have some such words that weren't recorded?  regardless, Zimmerman doesn't deserve to go to prison for lack of communication.

aside from Zimmerman's apparent intent, if Trayvon was simply on his way home, why didn't he get there in four minutes?  what was HIS intent once he realized a "creepy ass white cracker" was following him?  did he decide that he was upset enough for being followed that he chose some other course of action other than returning home?  what other course of action could that have been?  if Trayvon felt threatened at any point during that time, why didn't he leave?

these among other points cause me to conclude that Zimmerman was trying to keep tabs on where Trayvon was until the police got there.  Trayvon had ample time to leave the scene, yet elected an alternate course of action — to attack Zimmerman.

regardless, if there is not enough evidence to convict Zimmerman otherwise, innocence must be presumed.

but of course, most of what we're discussing is off topic to this article.

i just hope and pray that this tragedy saves lives in the future by giving cause for pause to those who would think about assaulting, thieving, or otherwise violate the natural rights of others.

Small Acts of Kindness and Love


While watching the Hobbit recently, this quote really seemed noteworthy regarding much of what i often struggle with.  Too bad I haven't applied heeding it more over the past couple of weeks, for I might not have allowed myself to become so struck with overwhelm, negativity and the feeling of self-uselessness:

"Gandalf: Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love."

We might be very surprised if we knew just how far our small acts of kindness and love go, while we continue to remain in our varying degrees of personal misery worrying about however we feel our 'large acts of greatness' might be falling short.

IRS Targeting VS Targeting the IRS


Regarding the "IRS Targeting" issue, I received an email today from a Michigan Congressman (below my signature).  I shared with him and our Liberty Asheville network my first thoughts that came to mind...


Dr. Dan Benishek asks, "Do you think the President knew about targeting of conservative groups by the IRS?"

Well, that's a largely irrelevant question, isn't it?

A more relevant question is, "Why is America still plagued with an 'income' tax system which violates the natural right of privacy?"

Or, "How can any individual be 'free' in such an authoritarian collectivist social-economic environment that prohibits privacy?"

The founders made it explicitly clear that there should be NO direct tax placed upon a free individual (US Constitution, Article I, Section 9, Clause 4), yet American generations have allowed a limited government to grow more unlimited and simultaneously violate the law of the land and our natural rights in this area (along with many others) for about a century now.

If we entirely eliminated all direct taxes, no one in the gov't system could ever use taxation as a means to target any specific individual or group of individuals.

Oh, and we'd restore our unalienable natural individual right to privacy.

Seems like a no-brainer, eh?
