We Have Power and Authority!

We Have Power and Authority!

Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits. Mark 6:7 NIV

I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power. Ephesians 3:7 NIV

While the religious are working to undermine the Spirit of The Word of God, we who have received Jesus into our hearts and live to please Him, know we have power by Holy Spirit to accomplish all things–loving all unconditionally–and in doing The Word, not just spouting The Word.

The power and authority are not just given to us to preach the Gospel, but to live the Gospel and to carry over into our everyday lives. We have the power within to receive all the visions and gifts Holy Spirit has for us in order to accomplish all we need to do here on earth.

Unfortunately, there are some who are acting as if the power we have through Holy Spirit is intended to have power over people to control them. God never intended for people–especially not Christians–to control others, but to share the Gospel with them so they, too could receive Holy Spirit and allow Him to control what we do. That’s the Power that needs to control, not the rich who think they are all “powerful” and have a right to dictate to others. The evangelical movement has forgotten what “evangelism” means. It is not about forcing others to share a viewpoint, but to spread the love of Christ and the Gospel message which is “love” not dictatorship. The power we have is not about being religious, but to keep us in Relationship with Christ.

When we love, we do so without hesitation or confrontation, but with acceptance that we are all one race–the human race–and we are all entitled to the same fair, equitable treatment by all. This is not a question of loyalty to a party, but it’s about loving other human beings, not controlling them. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, “God allows us to CHOOSE our paths” and no one else should intervene, knowing there are consequences for whichever path we take in life. That’s God’s way; it is not the way of evangelicals who think they need to control others–especially women.

For the rest of the Believers–we must choose to exercise the power and authority given to us through Holy Spirit so we can promote love, integrity and honor in every arena and event in which we participate. GOD IS LOVE! He loves us in spite of our imperfections and He never told us to put political party views over the care of one another. The least we can do is to love others as He loves us and “defend the rights” of the poor and needy. That’s what He expects us to do–not control people.

I can’t speak for others, but my only desire in running for President in 2020 will be to serve the needs of the people, not to beat people into submission to my will or the will of a political party. Hope you’ll stand with me–exercising the power and authority given us to care for all. Check me out on facebook.com/YesIam2020 and watch for updates.

Words Just Don’t Express!

Words Just Don’t Express!

I’ve spent most of the day, tweeting and calling and encouraging others to call or write the FCC to protect our rights to a free and accessible Internet. The tweets and emails to politicians who were elected to represent the views and perspectives of their constituents but have apparently forgotten all about that. What we see today in the media regarding the illicit leader is beyond words for me. He attacks and demeans everyone proudly proclaiming his lack of intellect, civility and dignity and has certainly put a toxic stain upon the integrity of the office of president.

I’ve tried praying and writing and writing and praying and tweeting and begging his daughter to care enough about him to get him the help he needs–all to no avail.

I’m not the only person who sees trump falling apart or has some would say, having a meltdown that is evident in everything he does. To say that he didn’t know what the job entailed would be an understatement, but it didn’t stop him from undermining and demeaning President Obama. To say that he doesn’t understand how government works–another understatement–he has no clue and none of his enablers will tell him the truth. To say he doesn’t understand history–the biggest understatement I could make in my lifetime. What trump doesn’t know–about anything remotely related to governing–is enough to fill a few oceans. But I’m trying to be careful of my depiction of him.

You see, unlike him, I know karma can leave a sting in the butt that nothing can remove or ease the pain. I’m planning to be in the White House in 2021 after a successful win, not garnered by cheating with Russians or anyone else for that matter and certainly not by suppressing the rights of others to vote, or not counting their votes. You see, this is how trump won and those who enable him, are his apologists and supporters–know exactly how he won.

I care about how history will treat me as I serve the American people. Notice I said, “serve” not dictate to them, but honor them in all that I do and my commitment to make life better for all Everyday Americans. I also know that “compromise” is not a foul word and that it takes compromise–from both sides of the aisle on Capitol Hill to get things moving and growing. I know I don’t have time or energy to feed my ego to make governing America all about me–it’s all about, “We The People” whether people vote for me or not. I cannot just consider policies that benefit only those who voted for me. In fact, once the election is over, I must start composing an agenda and garnering all the experts who will help me make it happen.

I’m not rich–far from it.  I’m a retired educator with a limited income and will have to raise money for my campaign using rather unusual methods and encourage all who want to see real change in Washington to help support my bid. I’ve already calculated that since (before deportations and others changing their citizenship after 2016 election) our population is about 327 million, I’m guessing that roughly 80% of those are registered voters and will vote–best guestimate. That means there are approximately 261 million registered voters and if 40% of those voters (104 million) would donate $3 towards my campaign, I’d have enough to do everything I need to win and turn the tide in bringing America back to its former position of being a leader on the global stage.

Oh, sure. I know there are skeptics about my ability–heck some days, I allow the enemy to convince me I’m wasting my time, but then something happens to re-ignite my hope and faith, and I gear myself up to keep on going. That’s what this post is about–pushing me to keep on going. Listen, many could create a list of things that I don’t know about governing, but I’ll start my list as to what I do know: I know I love this country and every citizen in it–and I know how to love unconditionally because I am loved–unconditionally. I care about the well being of everyone–especially the poor and the vulnerable. I know with the right people around me–guiding and advising me, America can only get better–adding to its greatness. I know I can take with me to the White House, dignity, integrity and honor–along with a sense of humor and a bit of silliness to shake off the negative Nellies. I also don’t golf–if that means anything to anyone–I’m pretty much a homebody–traveling only when I need to do so. I love to read, write, bowl, and watch a good movie. I also love to encourage others to extend themselves–beyond their reach–in order to reach their goals.

I know I don’t have to be rich to know what’s best for others. I’ve been through the struggles and challenges that many face–being a single mother, having had a childhood full of lack, no one pushing or encouraging my direction in my life, but there was within me–a spark–that ignited risk and kept me going–daring to venture into fields and arenas where I had no knowledge. And as one person told me through the years, “No matter what happened to you, you always landed on your feet.”

I’m adventurous–a pragmatic optimist–and I seldom give up or give in when I’m trying to accomplish anything. I refuse to let circumstances inhibit me. Sometimes I’ve failed to accomplish all that I wanted to accomplish, but with the failures always came the lessons and it is the lessons learned in life–with all of my miss-steps and flaws that have molded me into being the person I am today. That’s right–I’m confident I am the Everyday American leader we need to have the voices of all Everyday Americans heard.

Nothing I say–at this juncture may convince and I certainly hope nothing said will deter you from reviewing my stance on the issues that I believe matter to most. facebook.com/YesIAm2020.  Leave a comment if I haven’t addressed a specific concern of yours and I’ll respond to you as quickly as I can.

If we’re going to make a difference in what happens to the poor and vulnerable–all those who don’t and won’t make $75K a year, we have to work together to accomplish our goal. I’m with you and I hope you’ll be with me as we navigate this journey to the White House together. Look at that–maybe I found the words I needed to express myself today after all!

How We Treat Others Matters!

How We Treat Others Matters!

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. Romans 13:8-14 NIV

What are those desires of the flesh that keep us from loving? Jealousy and hatred–once the seed is planted and nurtured by failure to accept responsibility for self–leads to actions ignited by our fleshly desires to avenge perceived (even if the perception is wrong) injustices.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is–there is liberty and love. Where there is no love, there is no perceptible presence of Christ. For when the heart of a person is filled with love, there is no room for hatred and bigotry and racism doesn’t stand a chance. When we acknowledge that none of us are perfect and are all in need of a perfect Savior, we open the door and prepare the soil of our hearts to receive His love and allow it to be nurtured by continuing our lives, loving others. This is how we ought to treat one another. For if we know we love one another, we will not plot to do harm to one another. We will not set traps in hopes that others will fall into them for we realize the traps we set–we’re liable to fall into ourselves–realizing the Hamanesque effect.

How can we claim to be Christians–followers of Christ–if we don’t know Him for ourselves? To know Christ is to know His Word and to know how He lived among men and to do likewise. Jesus was not silent when He saw injustice, but rose up mightily to condemn it and so should we. He was the ultimate rebel in tearing down religion and religious leaders who only wanted to control others, not live for God. All that He did, He did with love at the forefront of His life so we might understand that we can do all things and should do all things in love for Love–for He is Love.

Again, I say, where there is love, there is no room for hate and where we find hate, we must drive it out with love, not more hatred. Those who think they are superior to others do not know Christ for we are told in His Word that we ought not to think more highly of ourselves than warranted. God is not mocked nor fooled by superficial acknowledgment of who He is. He looks upon the hearts of all and sees the discernible difference between the light of love and the darkness of hate. He knows! We cannot fool Him with mocking rhetoric that sounds like being a Christian.

Unfortunately, for those who think they are mocking God, He will have the last word when we stand before Him and He tells some, “Depart from me, I never knew you.” Those are not the words I want to hear from God when I stand before Him, so I’ll keep promoting truth, integrity, honor and love and where there is opportunity to rise up against hate and bigotry, I will rise to the occasion and never back down.

I’m Mary Hall-Rayford and I approve this message of love and hope you will, too!

Raising The Standards

The Lord In The Midst

The Lord In The Midst

A psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23 NIV

It is The Lord who should be guiding us in all we do, not a man or a woman–those who are mere mortals.

It is The Lord who gives us courage to do all we need to do or say.

It is The Lord who strengthens us to stand against the evil that so easily pervades a nation.

It is The Lord who has determined that goodness and love will follow us all the days of our lives.

It is The Lord who speaks through us when we speak truth to power for He is truth.

It is The Lord who gave Himself as a sacrifice for all mankind–not any man or woman–those mere mortals.

It is The Lord who will save us and not us in the midst of all the foolishness and chaos.

It is The Lord who walks with us and talks with us when no one else is around, guiding us to His Word.

It is The Lord who will ultimately see all the wrong righted and the evil defeated by whatever name it sows discord.

It is The Lord who will determine our eternal resting place–be it heaven or the lake of fire–based upon what we do, not what others do.

It is The Lord who will guide all who have a heart to hear Him and obey.

When The Lord is in the midst of our plans, He will bring it to pass.

Who is The Lord? He is the God of Heaven, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit walking in lockstep, watching all we do, hearing all we say, and loving us no matter what, yet correcting us when we disobey or miss the path He has designed for us.

The Lord is truth and light and there is no darkness in Him.

The Lord abhors lies and liars and has prepared the lake of fire for all who lie.

The Lord does not force His Will upon anyone, but allows us choice in all we do.

The Lord loves and imparts His love upon all who will receive, never allowing the darkness of hate to enter into His heart or ours.

In Him, we find all we need to inspire us to greatness and in doing great things, yet keeping us humble and our focus on Him. In Him, we have a shelter and haven from all the sick minds that promote hatred out of their own bitterness and anger. In Him, we find a gathering place where neither gender or skin tones matter. In Him, is our hope for peace on earth and eternal rest with Him.

I cast all my cares upon Him and I lean upon Him for guidance in my life for next three years and beyond as I journey into the political arena. I’m trusting Him to keep my integrity intact, my honor exposed for all to see and the love in my heart overflowing onto every Everyday American with whom I come into contact. He has promised in His Word that when we delight in Him, He gives us the desires of our hearts and I desire to serve all Americans with respect and dignity and to maintain the office of the presidency with all the sanctity it deserves. This I declare by Him who is Holy and all-knowing!

Raising The Standards

 

Time To Refocus!

Time To Refocus!

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV

It’s time for all of us (especially me) to refocus our attention on all that is true, noble, right, pure, lovely admirable, excellent and praiseworthy–and close the door (at least for a moment) on all the ugliness, hate and bigotry that surrounds us on a regular basis.

What is true–is that none of us–individually can do much to change the unfolding events that will inevitably impact our lives in a negative way. But is also true is that together, collectively, we can stand up and speak out against hatred and bigotry and be heard. It is also true that on a daily basis, I am speaking out against injustice and the idiocy and making it known that I am planning a bid for the White House as the next president.

What is noble in my running for president? I already know how the odds stack against me–an older Black woman. I know this is true because a number of Americans chose to believe the lies and false propaganda promoted about an older White woman, who was the most qualified person on the planet to serve and govern in the White House. My running for president is noble because even though I know the odds against my winning, I am determined to seek the position so that I can help raise the standards for all Everyday Americans and I’m not afraid of adversity, animosity, or facing downing the liars and hypocrites that will come floating to the surface of reality to rail against me. I know it’s coming and I’m ready–feet firmly placed for balance and I will not be moved by bigotry.

What is right about my running for president is the fact that many people have said they are tired of old White men, career politicians, and the rich and famous trying to govern when their purposes are self-serving. I am not a career politician and in fact–just made up my mind to get “politically active” earlier this year during a tax day march. I know the struggles and challenges that face Everyday Americans because I’ve lived them. I could enumerate them here, but I’d rather wait and do them in another forum, preferably an interview so all can hear at one  time. I’ve raised children by myself; I’ve held minimum wage jobs; I’ve wondered how we were going to make it from payday to payday; I’ve been out of work through no fault of my own but because of the negligence of a drunk driver; I’ve suffered the loss of my mother, father, stepmother, stepfather, brothers in close proximity. I’m a grandmother raising my oldest grandson, and in the midst of all that, I decided at 48 years-old to go back to school and complete a Bachelor’s degree and kept going.

I’ve had ups and downs and certainly I would never say that I’m a perfect person, but I can say I serve a perfect God who loves me enough to chastise me when I’m headed in the wrong direction and I hear him and obey. It is because of His love that He came in the person of sinful flesh to save me and all others who are willing to receive Him that I can move forward with confidence.

What is pure about my running for president? I have no ulterior motives in seeking the position other than to help all. I have no goals of obtaining wealth through nefarious means, or abuse of power or status. I have no plans to install friends or family who are not qualified for roles of authority. I don’t plan to become a career politician; my only goal is to help steer America back on the track to having the respect of the rest of the world and its leaders. I know my limitations and know how to seek those who know more than I know. I have not need for pride and ego to interfere with ability to serve the needs of all because I’ve never allowed pride and ego to drive my decision-making. I am–Holy Spirit-guided in all I do and I am not ashamed of that fact. I know how to love unconditionally and have no room in my heart for hatred of anyone. I can love with the purity of God the way He loves me.

What is lovely about my running for president? I have no need to put up a front about anything. Anything anyone wants to know about me can be found online simply by typing in my name on any search engine and see a variety of pictures of me and I have it on good authority (my children mostly) that I am a lovely person–inside and out.

What is admirable about my running for president? There is nothing hidden about me and I’m ready to stand up to the scrutiny I know is coming. I’m not afraid of background checks, mental evaluations or financial inspections. I understand the role of government and know that nothing is ever easy, but with cooperation by all–we can solve some of our problems and show the world that we are indeed–the United States of America, not the divided house of horrors.

Whether there is anything excellent or praiseworthy about my running for president has yet to be revealed. No leader is any better than those who support them. If I can find those who support me who are Talented, have Integrity, are Enthusiastic, and have Strategies to win an election, we’ll be a great team. When people meeting that criteria come together, it will indeed be an excellent opportunity for all to work together for a common cause–in Raising the Standards for all Everyday Americans and we’ll leave others to determine the level of praiseworthiness when they reap the benefits of the work we accomplish.

So, yes–it’s time for all to refocus our attention. We have elections to win–all the special elections, the Midterm elections and the General election in which I hope to be the next resident in the White House. Are you with me? Check out the information already available on http://www.facebook.com/YesIAm2020 to see if your concerns are addressed, and if not, please let me know what your concerns are so I can address them. Together we can do this and all will rise!

 

When The Lord Delights In Us!

When The Lord Delights In Us!

I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies.

He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:1-3; 16-19 NIV

With all of the craziness going on around us, we must take a moment or longer to think about who really loves and in whom we can truly trust. My hope is in Jesus and I know when I do what He would have me do, He’s delighted in me and I will have all He has promised in His Word. Since He is not a respecter of persons, whatever He has promised me and will do for me–He will do for others.

So take heart! We have not been forgotten by The Lord even though things seem out of kilter in the world. There is chaos and confusion, we cannot deny, but when we know the Lord, we know the origin of the chaos and it is Satan, for the Word says, “God is not the author of confusion,” and that “all things should be done decently and in order.” No many how many pseudo-Christians try to tell us that God chose trump, we can see this is a lie by aligning his actions with the Word of God.

God hates liars and has prepared the lake of fire for liars. Sound like anyone we know? Let’s look at recent proclamations!

fake IQ certificate

Notice the signature–his–and the date–October 5th 2017–fabricated to counter the notion that he’s a moron. Creating this fake certificate actually confirms that he is–indeed a chronic moron who thinks those with a functioning brain would ever buy into his nonsense. Oh wait–some did and lost millions of dollars behind his fake Trump University. I can imagine anyone who stayed long enough probably received a similar fake certificate of completion. His actions make me wonder if he actually completed a degree as he claims. Nothing else he says is true so it makes me wonder. No transcript or degree has been produced so we only have his word for it–like Forbes only has his word about his “self-proclaimed wealth.”

IQ Test Ranges

Then, when he lies and the lies are exposed, all his spokespersons–those enabling his lies and pathetic behavior, love to spin it into something it never was. His claim of having a higher IQ than Tillerson or anyone else is a lie and the above chart reveals he has no clue as to how an IQ test is ranked or its significance–which many don’t believe.

spining lies

What’s really sad is Sarah Huckabee Sanders role as press secretary who lies without blinking and yet claims to be such a righteous Christian and does not understand that her lies will reserve her place in the lake.

When insecurities rule a person because of fragile egos and multiple personality disorders, there is no truth told and everything trump is to bring him validation, not to unify a country. He is as most have already determined–a narcissistic megalomaniac pathological liar and only cares about what he wants or what makes him look good. He’ll fabricate things just to make him look more important than he is and we know the Word says, “we ought not to think more highly of ourselves than we are.” He proclaimed Columbus Day, Columbus Day like it wasn’t already on the calendar just so he could say–he did it. I’m not sure he realizes that all of the holidays and special days are already noted on most calendars and have been for years.  If he was really mindful and a “Christian” as some purport, he’d know that his deeds speak volumes and expose his lies.

He says he’s not a racist: He called the Black football players in the NFL SOBs (they were the only ones kneeling when he made this remark), but called white supremacists, “very fine people.” He has made the issue of the NFL players kneeling about disrespecting the flag, country, and anthem because he refuses to address the racial injustices that exist in many police districts–which is the reason for the kneeling. The fact that he’s now bullying the NFL and denigrating anyone who openly criticizes reveals his desire to be a dictator, not a president. He has yet to demonstrate understanding of the Constitution’s 1st Amendment rights–for others–while he says whatever comes out of out of his dark soul.

His spokespeople claim (Kellyanne specifically) that he’s, “compassionate and cares about others.” Would a compassionate person bring up past debts to those on an decimated island or throw paper towels to the residents? Would a compassionate person care more about the crowd size when he shows up to assess storm damage? Would a compassionate person ignore the deaths of four Green Berets and say nothing about their deaths or service to this country? I could say more, but what’s the point? Those who choose to believe his lies will and those of us who know better, will never believe anything he says.

Whenever I see a lie by trump or his spokespersons, I address it on Twitter and FaceBook his favorite means of communication, and I will continue to speak truth to power whether he or his parrots acknowledge it or not. That is the job of every Christian to speak truth, no matter what, dispelling lies spoken by those serving Satan.

If we want to see integrity and honor move back into the White House, I encourage all who read this post to check me out on facebook.com/YesIAm2020 and see what I bring to the table that will benefit all Everyday Americans. The 2020 Election is not that far away and plans must be solidified now. Thanks for the considering supporting my bid for president. I know when Jesus delights in me–I shall have what I say I shall have. For the Word says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of our heart.”

Changing My Tone!

Changing My Tone!

Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them. It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good, and to be so always, not just when I am with you. My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you, how I wish I could be with you now and change my tone, because I am perplexed about you! Galatians 4:16-20 NIV

“For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.” 2 Corinthians 13:8 NIV

When everything we attempt to do creates uncertainty in how others see us, we must remember we have options–always in obey The Word. This does not mean we accept lies as truth, but to continue to speak truth, without animosity–making sure truth is understood and not just our opinions.

I’ve been writing truths about the current resident in the Oval Office and complaining about as much as others who are concerned about the erosion of democracy under his “illegitimate” election win. We know without doubt Russian meddling influenced the outcome of the election. It’s not about “waiting for the evidence” to be presented for all the world to see; we see it in his tweets–his desperation to distract with lie and more false propaganda, declaring all other news, “fake news” except purported by Fox News and now his propaganda machine, his tv news outlet with supposed, “real news,” reported by his lying surrogates, feeding his ego. I guess some so-called Christians don’t have a problem risking spending eternity in the lake of fire–prepared for those who are liars. election2

At any rate, I decided it’s time for a change. By now, everyone with a functioning brain knows there is a problem in the White House which will soon be eradicated–one way or the other. And since people didn’t want to believe truth about the situation before now, perhaps, they’ll remove their blinders and see clearly, the danger which America faces with an incompetent, narcissistic person in the White House.

From this point forward until the General Election in 2020, I plan to promote my bid for president–outlining and presenting in somewhat exhaustive manner–why I’m qualified to serve America. I’m changing my tone and focusing on Raising The Standards for Everyday Americans.

Raising The Standards

Let’s begin with my understanding of what a president should know. (If this is redundant, please forgive the urgency I feel to let readers know where I stand.)

Other than being a legitimately elected leader, the person holding the office of President of the United States should understand what the office entails before being sworn into office. This person should have some understanding of the following:
• How government works (the three branches and how they are to operate in governance)
• Who America’s Allies and Adversaries are
• The importance of maintaining a strong military to defend the nation
• How to be fiscally responsible with tax-payer funds in order to keep the government running efficiently and smoothly
• How to embrace collaborative efforts in Congress
• The purpose of the Constitution and knowing what it takes to uphold it and protect democracy
• The History of the nation’s struggles and achievements
• Moving country forward with innovative ideas and technological aspirations
• Protecting the vulnerable from predatory practices
• The importance of everyone participating in a democratic society
• The importance of interactive, collaborations with other world leaders for economic reasons and to protect the planet.
• Recognizing the need for equality in the workplace between males and females
• Disavowing and condemning acts of discrimination regardless of race, religion, or gender.
• Promoting Unity and Instead of Divisiveness
• The boundaries of the office President—recognize being president of the United States does not mean having “all authority” or being a dictator or tyrant. Loyalty should be to Constitution and Americans, not an individual or groups of donors.
• Know that the White House is not an opportunity to promote personal business interests; the president should promote America’s interest not personal ones.
• Knowing the importance of transparency, having values and integrity; conducting oneself with dignity at all times.
• Know the difference between governing and campaigning with civility towards all.
• Know that the “rule of law” supersedes personal opinion and must be upheld
• Know that elected Congress doesn’t work for President but for their constituents.

All of this and more is on my Face Book page for Everyday Americans at http://www.facebook.com/YesIAm2020. If you’re checking it out, be sure to come back frequently for updates. I am so much more to say and my official Bio will be up by the end of summer. Until then, please seek direction from God (not me) as to who should get your vote in any election–not tainted by foreign actors meddling by peddling false propaganda.
