Being Colorblind in America

This isn’t about the genetic condition of colorblindness, but rather not acknowledging the importance of ones melanin content of their flesh.  Today, being colorblind is somehow akin to denying the existence of racism in America, which is just a bullshit excuse to keep racialism alive and well in the country.

I was raised colorblind and it was quite effective.  The idea of “black” and “white” didn’t mean jack shit to me.  It made no sense to apply color to a human being.  I hung out with “black” kids, “white” kids and even a half Native American kid without ever a thought coming to my mind about how different they were to me.  In my mind, they weren’t different.  They were kids like me who wanted to have fun and that was it.  It wasn’t until high school did the racialist agenda get packed into my skull.  Race became important to acknowledge and bow down to.  My colorblindness was cast away for awhile as the education  system re-educated me on what race meant to others who weren’t lucky enough to escape the shackles of racialism.

Racialism are the shackles that keep us human beings subservient to the ruling elite.  It keeps us thoroughly divided without ever truly uniting against the common enemy we all have: the oligarchy.  The oligarchy is comprised of the Democrat and Republican parties. Despite their differences on the surface, beneath the exterior of benevolence lies the beating heart of a dark hydra (two heads, same body) that push the racialist agenda onto their constituents.  If power comes from unity then the idea of keeping us divided along racial lines is important to the two party oligarchy that seek to rule over us instead of working for us, which is the way it’s supposed to be.

There are those racialists who keep the lie alive by stating that being colorblind is false and denies racism. Being colorblind does not deny racism especially since we live in a racialist society.  Anyone who denies that racism exists from all sides of our society are delusional.  However, being colorblind and denying the existence of race is the first step in defeating racism.  By keeping race alive it keeps us divided along those lines which in turn keeps racism thriving in the deep, dark depths known white nationalism, black nationalism, hispanic nationalism…etc.  In order to bring down these walls of separation we have to acknowledge the fact that race doesn’t exist and is simply a byproduct of evolution and nothing more.  The melanin content of our skin does not make us any better or any worse than someone with a different melanin skin content.  Once we become educated on the facts will we then finally unite as human beings.

2016: The Fracturing of the Democratic and Republican Parties

Watching the insanity of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz dealing with the fallout of her comments on Bernie Sanders and the disunity at the RNC last week, what we’re witnessing is (FINALLY) the fracturing of the two parties dominance over American politics.  Since I’ve been politically active I’ve never seen such deep fissures develop within the two major parties.  I celebrate these developing fissures because it finally allows for the seeds of Third Parties to take root and grow through.  So far, it seems that the Libertarian and Green parties may be able to finally develop momentum to progress and start taking seats of power in DC.

With the apparent sabotage of Bernie Sanders campaign by his own party perhaps we can see him break away from the Democratic Party and take up the reigns of another party that is willing to allow him to do his work in the way he wants to. What happened to Bernie Sanders was the act of a party willing to be tyrannical and unfair in its dealings with those whom they don’t agree with.  Bernie Sanders was right from the get go, that the system is rigged and he was the victim of a rigged system within his own party, the Democratic Party.

Ted Cruz, I wonder if he too was the victim of the rigged system within the Republican Party?  It would only make sense for the ascension of that Prince of Clowns Donald Trump.  Ted Cruz has the integrity to not bow down at the feet of Trump like all of the other fools in Jester Trumps court did at the RNC last week.  However, people have called into question the political future of Ted Cruz within the Republican Party.  That should concern Ted Cruz very much and should get the gears turning in his head whether or not he should jump off the sinking Republican ship and find a Third Party lifeboat waiting for him nearby.

As centrist I would rather be having an election between Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders.  Such an election would make it difficult to figure whom I’ll vote for, but I’d rather have that than having the option of Criminal Hillary or Criminal Trump.  The current two choices just make me want to write in George Carlins name rather than have to vote for the Democrat or Republican criminal.

Yes, I relish the deep fissures within both the Democrat and Republican parties because their power over American politics will begin (hopefully) to wane allowing for a Third Party to take up the challenge of leadership in America.  A true democracy doesn’t have you choosing trash over garbage.  A true democracy allows the trash, garbage and fresh to campaign for leadership.  So let both parties fall apart, don’t try to mend them.  They must understand that they can’t hold power forever and that eventually their tyranny can end allowing a Third Party into DC.

The Rise of the New Royalty

As Americans are divided daily along socio-economic lines, racial lines, gender lines, orientation lines, religious lines, in the background of all of this is the consolidation of the power of the new royalty.  Who is this new royalty?  It’s not some foreign force with their hands in everything our government does.  The new royalty coming to power are the Democrats and Republicans and any other political party.  They are also the tech companies that addict us to their new innovation simply because they know we like the newest and fanciest flashy piece of technology.  The tech companies are the new prophets and magicians that keep us subdued by distracting us from the real world and it’s slow collapse into oligarchy and despotism.  The tech companies willingly sell their soul to the Higher Royalty (Government) in order to secure the whims of the Higher Royalty, namely authoritarianism while the tech companies, the Lower Royalty, secure their place in the new hierarchy of oligarchy in this country and eventually the world.

I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but the evidence is there if you just look around you shaking off the modern haze of smartphones and reality shows.  The more ignorant we are, the more divided we are the more easily we can be controlled. Control is the ultimate end game for all political parties whether they are Left or Right wing, both simply despise the freedom of our will.  If we think individually and without regret then they lose that control, but once they pigeon hole us into “correct” thinking then they can control us absolutely.

Educate yourselves on the reality of our society.  No longer be a sheep following the herd.

Why I Believe What I Believe

At times I become so apathetic towards politics that I simply slip away for months without ever looking at a news website, watching Glenn Beck or even writing in this blog, but recently my girlfriend and I plan on having a child and thus has become my duty to become vigilant when it comes to politics both here in the US and abroad.  As our society becomes more globalization helped along by technology it’s prudent to stay on top of current events such as the Crisis in Iraq and Common Core because the long-term ramifications for our future child will be poignant.

So what exactly do I believe?  It’s better to just list my beliefs:

I believe in gay marriage
How exactly do two people of the same gender marrying affect me?  It seriously doesn’t much like Brittany Spears and other celebrities who abuse the institution of marriage for their own attention whoring.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment
The right for people to own guns should always be upheld because it ensures that the government will always be afraid of it’s citizens because they can and will always be armed to the teeth.  That’s how it should be, the government fearing its citizens rather than citizens being fearful of their government.

I believe in religious rights
Christians today are taking a pounding by secularists maybe for good reason, but bashing an entire religion on the merits of a few really is silly.  Plus, banning things like a cross erected 5 decades ago bought and paid for by ordinary citizens is even more silly.  Leave it alone, it’s a memorial to the dead.  Also, a Christian business should be given the right to put their business at risk by denying patronage to gay couples.  In the end, they’ll revoke their own ban due to low amount of customers patronizing their business.

I believe Common Core is evil
Common Core reduces competition between good and bad schools by leveling the playing field.  It also brings with it strange ways of doing math for example.  The new way of math makes it harder for parents to their duty as parents and help their children scholastically.  It makes schools more dependent on the Federal government as opposed to local communities and the people who fund those schools with their tax money.  Taking examples from totalitarian and failing countries is not a good way to reform our education system.

I believe in Universal Healthcare
Obamacare is the biggest foul up ever to grace our country.  I believe in Universal Healthcare, but I think it needs a more 21st Century revision in order to make it work effectively without putting peoples lives at risk.  It needs to take the Hippocratic Oath to the fullest extent.  It doesn’t need to be the rationed out healthcare that Conservatives are afraid of.  With brilliant minds and innovation we Americans could make it work better than the European brand of Universal Healthcare.

I believe in School Choice
Every parent should be able to choose what type of school their child goes to whether it’s public or private or even home schooling  and have it be affordable as well. The misplaced fear in George W. Bush voucher program was nothing more than Liberals wishing to subjugate parental choice.  This to me is treasonous in that Liberals are forgoing a childs future for their own political gain.

I believe in being environmentally friendly
Lets face it, no one wants dirty air, polluted waters or to have the beautiful scenery that Nature bestows upon us to be blotted out by vast concrete and asphalt strip malls and parking lots.  So, it is our duty as sentient beings to want to take care of the environment and make sure no more animals go extinct because of our existence.

I don’t believe Socialism/Communism is the answer
Now, I’m sure the naysayers will be quick to point out that my support of Universal Healthcare is hypocritical, however I don’t believe so.  I can accept one component of an ideology without supporting the entire ideology itself.  Communism/Socialism just simply does not work when applied to the real world.  It lacks factoring in the fact that it’s usurping rights from people and human nature itself.

I believe Capitalism does need to be reformed for the 21st Century
The current form of capitalism is based off the Industrial Revolution, which has long since withered away to allow the Information/Digital Revolution to flourish, so it’s without any doubt that capitalism needs to be retrofitted for our 21st Century reality.  Factories and other industries are slowly but surely giving way to automation and having capitalism still holding on the ancient remains of the Industrial Revolution does nothing to help people and in fact gives the Communists/Socialists credence in their ideology that capitalism is slowly dying.

I don’t believe in amnesty for illegals
As someone who is the son of a legal immigrant from Latin America, giving amnesty and all these amenities to illegal, law-breaking immigrants is a slap in the face to those who went through the process of citizenship the legal way. If these illegals want citizenship then they need to go about it the way everyone has.

I believe in a secured border
We need to secure our border and even put up an extensive wall along our border in order to secure our nation from illegal immigration and from intrusions from Mexican drug cartels and the Mexican military.

I believe political correctness is wrong
People need to really grow a thick skin and stop being offended by every little thing that comes out. What kind of life is it to find offense at everything around you? You don’t have the right to not be offended. Welcome to reality.

I believe in a non-racist, all inclusive nationalism
I think its important that all legal American citizens regardless of race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion and political ideology to express pride in their country. Since pride in country tends to run contrary of the internationalist beliefs of most Left leaning ideologies the opposing idea is of course nationalism. Nationalism isn’t inherently racist in nature and especially with a diverse country such as America nationalism can not be racist.

I support the 10th Amendment
The idea of giving more power to the states and the people and restricting power given to the Federal government is just common sense. As we can clearly see the power lust that Federal government has is a clear and present danger to American citizens. We need to get back rights for the states to choose what is good for their state and not be bullied by the government to accept things the Federal government wants to impose like Common Core.

There’s more things I can bullet point that I support, but it tends to be a long list so this gives you an idea of why I believe in what I believe and why I have a problem simply sticking to any party line. I’m just some person stuck in the center of politics and find the Left-Right rift to be ridiculous.

A Question for Robert Menendez Answered

Just today I had sent an email to the Office of NJ Senator Robert Menendez regarding the issue if members of Congress are willing to enroll via the marketplace they expect us Americans to participate in and this is the response I received:

Dear Mr. ###########:

Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  Your opinion is very important to me, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond to you on this vital issue.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) establishes, for the first time, a competitive and transparent marketplace where individuals and small-groups are able to purchase quality, affordable health insurance.  For employers with more than 100 employees, who have large-group or self-insured policies, these newly created marketplaces will not affect their insurance plans.  As such, the only changes this law makes to these plans are increased consumer protections, such as prohibiting coverage denials because of a pre-existing condition and outlawing annual or lifetime limits on benefits.

The law does, however, require that members of Congress and their staff purchase health insurance through the new health insurance marketplaces rather than continue participating in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan. The federal government is our nation’s largest employer and just like other employers in this country that offer health insurance it provides a contribution to cover a portion of its employees’ insurance costs.  The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) recently announced regulations that will allow the government to continue paying the employer portion of Congressional employees’ premiums.  This regulation maintains the employer-employee relationship used by employers across the country, without altering the requirement that these employees’ obtain their insurance in the newly created marketplaces.  Again, I can assure you that I, along with my office staff, will be purchasing our health insurance through the new insurance marketplaces when they open in 2014.

Thank you for your support and for sharing your thoughts with me.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be or more assistance.  I invite you to visit my website (http://menendez.senate.gov) to learn more about how I am standing up for New Jersey families in the United States Senate.

Whether or not this can be trusted is to be seen in the near future, which is January 2014 to be exact.  I’ve also sent an email to Representative Rob Andrews of NJ the same question, but still awaiting a response.  I will post his response, if it comes, as well.  So, keep your eyes open and be vigilant of your Senators and Representatives that they fulfill their promise of enrolling on the ObamaCare Program.  Remember, if it’s good for us then it’s good for them.

Political Careers First

Today politicians have unanimously stated that their careers matter first and that America and Americans matter not to them. We are simply an endless bank account for them to live lavishly and leisurely while we the People slave away to make ends meet. And we are also the ones that provide the pathway to their careers via a road paved with our votes. Yup, we elected self-serving ingrates who are only out for themselves making laws that apply only to us and not them. A great example is the fact that ordinary Americans have to buy into ObamaCare or be fined a hefty amount of cash if you don’t while The President and Congress are exempt from this “great” idea of ObamaCare. If it’s good for us then it’s good for them as well. If it’s not good for them then by the Gods it is NOT good for us! This is the question that needs to be asked by the American people but unfortunately instead they’re sheep-mindedly accepting this horrendous piece of garbage as law. Guess what? You are Americans and as an American you don’t have to accept this failure of a law. Wake up, the Democrats and the Republicans don’t care about you. The only ones who care are the ones being called extremists, the Tea Party movement. They want maximum freedom while have government limited and back into the bass of individual states as per the 10th Amendment of our Constitution, the real law of the land.
