AUGUSTA RALLY OCTOBER, 2010
If we look to the horizon, we can see a tsunami coming, we can hear its thundering roar, we can feel its pounding vibration in our feet, we can smell its freshness and we can taste it in the air. This tsunami is not like any other tsunami, when it hits the banks and shores of every State Capital and when it hits the federal Capital in Washington, it is going to cleanse the halls of the ‘Unholy Alliance’. When the tsunami returns in 2012, it will cleanse again, but this time it will cleanse the halls of the White House, and by the third time in 2014 we will have our country back into the hands of the sovereign people for which it was intended!
Before I begin, I believe that we are all here for the same serious reasons, but for most of all the reasons, it is for the preservation and for returning our governments back to the full intent of the United States Constitution; and for us Mainers, it is the Maine Constitution. In order to do this, we all need to vote for only those candidates that pledge and guarantee their oath & allegiance to both State and Federal Constitutions. Of both of these Constitutions, we must seriously keep ourselves and our elected legislators eyes on these wonderful words, which were written and accepted in the year 1820. I will now read from the Maine Constitution:
Section 1. Natural rights. All people are born equally free and independent, and have certain natural, inherent and unalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and of pursuing and obtaining safety and happiness.
Section 2. Power inherent in the people. All power is inherent in the people; all free governments are founded in their authority and instituted for their benefit; they have therefore an unalienable and indefeasible right to institute government, and to alter, reform, or totally change the same, when their safety and happiness require it.
While George Washington was fighting for the freedom for the citizens of this continent, his Army was freezing and starving to death while wintering over at Valley Forge. During this same time, Thomas Paine (the Authory of "Commond Scence), disappointed with the situation, Paine penned a letter to share his frustration with his fellow citizens and he made this statement: “these are the times that try men’s souls.” Since than, there has been many times to try men’s souls. This statement, unless we are exposed personally to the trying times, really means very little to us, unless we are personally being affected by these trying times. I believe that today that all the people of Maine are deeply in the stages of ‘the trying times’; it is time that we all (Democrats, Republicans, Independents, libertarians and Greens) come together as Maine citizens that want to protect ourselves and our communities from the Unholy Alliance in Augusta and Washington who want to destroy our Constitution!
And now it all begins, in these last few days before this election. Whether we like it or not, we have to put up with the phony campaign lies and slogans, the ads and the selfish, immoral and childish one issue reasons why we should vote for the perfect challenger for the seat in the Blain house and for the seats in the Senate or House. We have all seen them before, ‘my candidate has vision’, ‘my candidate stands out’, ‘my candidate is a leader’, and ‘my candidate will create new jobs’, o save me from the one-sided dribble.
Did you know that long before the Constitution was written, our founding fathers, not really knowing how this country was going to be governed, were fearful of giving the people the right to vote, because they knew that some irresponsible people would be selfish, immoral and childish! Some framers even commented that people were not educated and ‘common sense’ was only the consensus of the common people who sweated in the fields or worked in common labor. What would the people know about a democracy under a republic, freedom and equal justice?
In retrospect, in some cases the framers were right on, because some people then, as are now, are shallow, irrational and naïve and some are controlled by selfish emotions and only support one issue and the heck with the rest of the people. But the founding fathers were visionaries, they saw into the future, they knew that a country under GOD, and a country blessed with recognized ‘GOD given rights’, and with a government that would protect their rights, the country eventually give way to prosperity and success based on educated voters, so they threw caution to wind and gave the vote to the people.
225 years have now passed since the Constitution was ratified, we are more educated today and the common people still have ‘common sense’ but this time, on a higher degree, and once we know the truth, the genie cannot be put back into the bottle. We now have the ability to judge and make educated decisions based on facts and logic and not on one issue selfish reasons. Unfortunately, some people are still 225 years behind in logic and they are still extremely naive and selfish or we would not be here today!
We need to send a loud message to this administration and to the next administration that takes over this mess. We are done with 35 years of progressive change and we are done with the blatant lies. We are done with the progressive tax laws that virtually steal from those who earn a living and give it to those who do not. We are done with the progressive behind the door meetings and bills that are only read after they are passed. We are done with giving our country to the U.N. and we are done with the progressives who do not support the tax-payer. And we are done with the Communist, the socialist and the fascistic direction that the current progressive administrations have forced on to us, it is over!
If you have done your homework and you think you like what you see & hear from a candidate, and if they are honest and if they have morals, ethics and virtues than vote for them November 2. And if a candidate supports Communism or fascism or the progressive party that supports socialism and U.N. law instead of your Constitutional and your (GOD) given rights, then vote them out of office. And by all means, vote for those who support the rights of the workers and taxpayers, because without them, the politicians can not spend us into debt. Vote for the candidates that have had successful experiences or whether or not they were really successful in the business field. If they are incumbents back them only if they voted in the past against the unconstitutional laws. Always keep the focus, if they have betrayed you once, they will betray you again, and you cannot trust them.
If I had a slogan, it would be simple, “if you support the Constitution, vote for the Constitution now and in 2012, and then again 2014, and if you are a socialist, leave the country!”
