Either way 2020 election went, Massachusetts is going to fire a few more shots of Liberty with Thanks & Giving out of here. Thanksgiving for being passed over 70 years of undeclared wars & war crimes. Calling for an Article V Convention to hold a Continental Congress, (in spirit of the Alamo) held at Pine Ridge for Pow Wow with Lakota. All 14 Lakota Sioux left there holding out for US to come to our senses. 🙂 We are the 7th Generation that Crazy Horse, The Hopi and others knew would come to unite the 4 colors of man into one circle again. Very much like John Lennon taught us to Imagine in what people still call the most beautiful song ever written. (Its a work in Progress for long haul.)
We going to hold this Article V Convention call of Continental Congress in Spirit of the Alamo. Pow Wow with Lakota Sioux. All 17 that hear are holding out for White Man to come to his senses, still living in poorest county of the USA.
Not quite sure how we are going to get enough states to call for An Article V Convention, though, think its inevitable that we do. I’m in for the long haul,,,like until every State Registers everyone over 18 to vote with mail in ballots sent to Post Office City Hall counting setups overseen by local cops. To elect 12 delegates to Continental Congress. (I’ve got nothing but time, how about you all?) Newly elected officials to hold a Continental Congress. I believe these quotes of known men of old below should be high on the list of what policies come from that Continental Congress. Bottom up empowerment of communities to be able to take care of themselves is a worthy goal too. After just reading Plato I love the idea of the City-States Ancient Greece had. That goes along with my decades of feeling Boston doesn’t need DC to tell it what to do. Though, am strongly thinking Alabama, Georgia and The River too long to spell do. 🙂 ): :(!!!
Today I ask both, what can we do for our country? And what can our country do for us? I would like to give it a big break with that party in Isaiah 25 when the veil is lifted from all nations’ eyes, which I figure would be when Isaiah 2 and Micah 4 are fulfilled, of nations beating swords into plowshares (Which sounds like feeding people to me, highly unlikely to happen in one generation; this one can start taking the Nuclear Bombs apart. That sounds like mission for a World Wide NASA) and never training for war again. My hope is we can stop going in the opposite direction of that. Claiming to trust in god with every buck we spend, while trillions go to guns and bombs, proves us all liars.
I Must add Public City Banks at Post Office is a key way to get out of the Banks too big to jail. The Worker Ownership of the Mondragon Cooperative (Its a better way to work & get benefits than rather depending on Corporations or DC to get a good job.) of the Basque in Spain is a working way to get good jobs and keep the profits local. Mondragon owns its own Collage which trains its worker owners who each have a vote in how the company is run. Local Unions could work out the details of setting up.
“When shall it be said in any country of the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive…when these things can be said, then may that country boast of its constitution and government.”~ Thomas Paine
“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men. Therefore the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require.” — John Adams, 1776
History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and it’s issuance.” James Madison (1751-1836), President.
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
Thomas Jefferson, (Attributed)
3rd president of US (1743 – 1826)___
“An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty–It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates his duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.” –Thomas Paine
”What you do not make free will never grow. The idea that you can make others grow and help their growth, that you can direct and guide them, always retaining for your self the Freedom of the Teacher, is NONSENSE, a Dangerous LIE which has retarded the growth of millions and millions of Human Beings in the World. Let Man have the Light of Liberty. That is the only condition for growth…Loyalty to petrified opinion has never yet broke a chain or freed a Human Soul.” -~Samuel Clemons
(Arlo Guthrie shared that with me back in late 1990’s on his Arlonet Site that is still up and working
Arlo woke up one day, after the Corona Blues Reckoning Times had shut down his 2020 Tour too, and he said I’ve got to do a cover of this “Hard Times Come Again No More.” That song from the 1850s which Arlo adds words at the end, “Better times come again.”
“As for the best leaders, the people do not notice them. When the best leader’s work is accomplished, the people say, ‘We did it ourselves!’” — Lao Tzu, The Book of Tao
We are along ways from the words and dreams of the Father of the Revolution in the following quotes. We also look very close to the same times as what John Adams said about government no longer serving the people. I joke about the Twilight Zone Episode “To Serve Man”, about aliens showing up with a cook book. It doesn’t appear that the cowards of both sides breaking it will be the ones to clean out the trash. It is time to clean house.
