Do You Really Think an Election Will Change the Way Business is Done in Washington?

moneyIt's all a shell game, and we're the ones being manipulated by these elections into believing our choice -- or for that matter ANY choice -- will make a difference in the way our system is run.

Combine the inherent corruption of the system with the race between the parties to see who can give away more of our freedoms and ignore the constraints of our Constitution (need I make a list?), not to mention the gross overreaching and general performance of government, and it's easy to understand that we the people have a long way to go to right our ship and sail it to a destination that really serves us.

No amount of buy-offs or muscle-flexing or promises or political games or programs will do the job. It will take a mass awakening of the people, enough to throw off the yoke of the power brokers and their pawns, and a concerted effort to build something better.

It won't be easy. But we'd better get ready, because the way it looks, the game is getting out of hand even for them.

"The systems and institutions upon which our civilization is built must evolve or be replaced by new ones that better reflect our expanding consciousness." - John

A Culture of Greed
We each are born into these physical bodies to experience life as the center of our respective universes, totally immersed in the experiences life brings. In other words, I'm born to live my life, while you live yours.

Unfortunately, such egocentrism is the reason our world is in the state it is in. Most are out to get what they can to serve their own interests, even when others are hurt or disadvantaged in the process.

Nowhere is this more obvious than in the conduct of our public affairs.

Systemic Reform -- Why Do We Need It?

Thomas Jefferson"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." - Thomas Jefferson 1802
