What In The World?

What In The World?

I’ve been pretty vocal about all the nonsense Americans have had to endure for the past two years, but it’s getting crazier and crazier with no end in sight (except 11/6/18). I mean really, we are facing the most autocratic Oval Office resident this country has ever seen. And it’s all part of a grander plan. When our democracy falls apart (if people don’t vote Blue in November), all those who fell for the okey doke of trump’s campaign can blame the Republicans in Congress who would not exercise their constitutional right of oversight of the executive office. But here’s why they didn’t do their job. They wanted tax cuts for the rich, and conservative judges who will rule against individual rights of people regarding: women’s reproductive rights, who people can love, access to affordable healthcare, and of course we cannot forget–the corporate promises fulfilled with the roll back of consumer protections that will lead to the deaths of many people. Now, don’t forget–trump also wants the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, to prosecute people for disagreeing with him, for criticizing him, and for daring to exercise their 1st Amendment rights in expressing their criticism.

This is the gist of what they wanted and have succeeded in obtaining:

agenda

What the world has had an opportunity to observe with the “confirmation hearings” of Brett Kavanaugh, we are assured that he will cave to “party preference” and not care about what’s best for the country if given an opportunity to overturn, Roe v Wade, the Marriage Equality Act, and the Affordable Care Act leaving millions without healthcare. Additionally, the conflated views of “religious freedom” will be tested when corporations and insurance companies can use “their faith” to reject the rights of others.

The most interesting thing about this hearing is the fact that the nominee, avoids answering any questions and it won’t matter to the Republican majority because they have already determined they are going to confirm him. So what is the point of these hearings in which no answers are expected? This had been such a farce and waste of time, but his non-responsive answers–tell the average American a great deal about the character of the person.

And now we have the rantings of the moron-in-chief upset about an anonymous OpEd, all because someone in the White House dared to tell the truth about his behavior and lack of knowledge. Personally, I’m glad the person wrote it–whoever it was, since it confirms what has already been said–trump is a psychotic narcissistic moron who knows nothing and is consistently endangering our national security. Michael Wolff said it in his book, Omarosa said it in her book, and now it would appear that Bob Woodward has unveiled the same sentiments–with receipts!

What is it going to take for the those who blindly support the “enemy of the people” to wake up and smell the stench of treason emanating from the White House? Did they really drink a mind-numbing shake or other drink at his hate rallies that makes them incapable of rational, logical thought?

I don’t know what’s going to happen to America if people don’t get out and vote in November, but I know it won’t be pretty since we already know Russia has a tight, vise-like grip on trump’s balls and he’s afraid of him. What does Putin have on trump and the rest of the GOP? It’s got to be really bad for them to cave to foolishness and risk alienating our allies!

Here’s the thing. What in the world are you going to do about it? Yes, you–whoever is reading this. Are you going to make it your business to encourage the vote in November and for people to vote Blue or are you going to sit back on the sidelines and just shake your head? We, the people, have the power to change the course of events and save Americans and our democracy. Are you going to be part of the solution or part of the problem? I know what I’m going to do. I’m going to help get people registered to vote, encourage them to Vote Blue and take them to the polls with me–if I have to–to make sure they vote. I am going to use all of my social media platforms to make sure everyone knows this is not a drill! Our rights to vote are on the line if we don’t get this right in November!

So, again, I ask you–what in the world are you going to do?

Attention voters

Why? Because Democrats care about the people and they will work #ForThePeople!

for the ppl

If you care at all about our environment, how veterans are treated, how our senior citizens are treated, education, a living wage, and access to affordable healthcare–now is the time to act–get it in gear and move mountains to get out the Blue Vote on November 6, 2018 so we can all breathe a little easier, knowing there will be checks and balances as the Democrats do the job, Republicans won’t do.

Don’t forget–if we have a democracy surviving the resident idiot, I’m running for president in 2020 and I guarantee you, I won’t forget who it is I’m supposed to represent and serve. I will always work #ForThePeople–the Everyday Americans!

Presidential Qualifications

Presidential Qualifications

According to the constitution–there are only a few qualifications a person must meet in order to run for president in this country. They are:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

Therefore, if we’re going to be real and factual, our claims (including mine) that trump is not qualified to be president are not necessarily true–according the requirements as written. Apparently, the founding fathers didn’t think far enough ahead to anticipate the menace we now have in the White House–who certainly is not fit to hold the office. Ah ha! The difference between being qualified and being fit is exposed on a daily basis.

So, now how do we determine a person’s fitness for the office?

I’m not convinced that a person has to have held an elected position prior to running for president or be rich or have a well-connected family name. I am convinced that anyone running for the office of president should have a genuine concern and desire to serve all the people in the United States and not just some of them. Therefore, based upon what we’ve seen, the current Oval Office resident is only concerned with establishing policies that benefit the rich and campaigning to appease his base (40%) of the American population. And because people were so foolish to not vote because their candidate didn’t get the nomination in 2016, here we are today, in 2018, trying to figure out how we get out from under the oppressive, authoritarian mess that now exists.

The one bright spot to the traitor’s election is the fact that people–from all walks of life–have felt impelled to run for office and that’s a good thing. Complacency has taken a back seat to the horrors of what we now face as a nation.

I’ve talked to a number of people in the past year and will probably talk to more. Many are running for offices or have run and the recurring them for their political involvement is, “trump happened.” I know that’s true for me–if he had never been installed in office, I probably would have lived out the rest of my life, totally inactive, thinking that voting was enough. Just voting–is not enough! If we want to see a change in this country, every able-bodied, mentally stable American needs to get actively involved in the political process of this country–it’s the way Democracy works.

At any rate, let’s get back to the point I want to make–about having presidential qualifications which include being fit for the office. As most of my followers know, I plan to run for President in 2020. Many have said, they don’t think I’m qualified based upon a few factors: I’ve not held an elected public office (not a career politician), I’m not rich (no matter how rich is defined), and I’m not affiliated with any religious institution (meant to appease the religious sector in the country).

On the other hand, there are number of reasons why I believe I’m the perfect person (qualified and fit) for the position of President of the United States.

  • I am an American (though the founding fathers didn’t have me in mind) who believes in adhering to the Constitution of the United States.
  • I have been a public servant for over 20 years as an educator and volunteer in various situations.
  • I know the three branches of government and the intent for checks and balances needed for a democratic process to work and have an affinity for understanding history.
  • I have a better than average understanding of how government is supposed to work and will work to maintain (or restore in this case) the relationships between our allies.
  • I have a heart for all people regardless of their ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs or anything else.
  • I care about our planet and want to make sure my grandchildren and their children can enjoy breathing clean air, drinking clean water, and in eating foods not poisoned by toxic soil.
  • I want every person who desires a higher education to have access to one without overwhelming debt (I know all too well how this is overwhelming)
  • I want every educator to be treated with respect and dignity and paid as the professionals they are.
  • I want every Senior Citizen to live secure in the knowledge that benefits they paid into will always be available to them.
  • I want every American–regardless of age or pre-existing conditions to have access to affordable healthcare.
  • I want every veteran who has served this country to be honored as the heroes they are and for them to have every service they need to continue living a productive life.
  • I want every American to be treated with respect and dignity and afforded equal rights in every area of their lives.
  • I want corporations to pay their fair share of taxes and for them to pay employees a living wage commensurate with their skills and ability.
  • I want access for every person who wants to run for an elected office to be able to do so without finances being a barrier that impedes.
  • I want to see America’s Democratic process work for every American and that the people determine the direction of our nation, not corrupt, bought and paid for politicians who forget how they were elected in the first place.
  • I am as mentally stable as anyone can be at the moment with the constant threat of nuclear war by the menace in the White House who is truly the enemy of the people.

In addition to the above bulleted points–I am physically fit to endure rigors of the office and if for any reason, my physical ability should falter, I have no qualms about moving aside so that the country moves forward with the best person at the helm. My strongest character traits are my integrity and tenacity. My weakest character trait (and I’m working on overcoming it) is believing in the best of people. When I see the worst in them, I acknowledge it and sever ties with them. I know how to love from afar.

For those who think that having an affiliation with a religious institution is important, let me say this. My relationship with Jesus Christ is far more important than an affiliation with any religious institution since they “change” and Jesus does not. I’m happy with my relationship with other believers and even those who don’t. Neither belief or unbelief changes who I am or how I try to live life as a living representation of who God is.

So, now do you think I’m qualified to run for president? Only the voters will make that decision and I hope they find in my favor and elect an Everyday American who cares about all people, rather than a career politician, or entertainer simply because they have the money or family name. I want people to research who I am and determine for themselves whether they think I can represent who they are and address their needs.

“Tell The Truth And Shame The Devil!”

“Tell The Truth And Shame The Devil!”

Then you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32 NIV

Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want want to carry out our father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet, because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God. John 8:43-47 NIV

Although we know that Jesus was talking to the Jews who had a problem believing who He was, we also know that those words ring very true today. Liars are influenced by the devil, the truth is foreign to all pathological liars and until we are willing to speak truth and accept truth, we remain in bondage to doing the devil’s bidding.

I think it’s about time–everyone woke up–and started speaking the truth about daily news events and the threat hanging over us with Russia’s asset in the White House. I have been saying this for over a year and some have chosen to stop following me and that is certainly their right. I will continue to speak the truth as I see it. donald trump is a Russian asset; he has been used to dismantle American democracy and we can see the effects on a daily basis with the attacks on the media, on people of color, and even on those elected officials in Congress. Whether there are those who want to admit they made a mistake by supporting trump or not is totally irrelevant. If American democracy is to be sustained, we must all speak truth to power and keep speaking it until it sinks in and when or if it doesn’t, we must all be prepared to fight to save our Constitutional freedoms by voting blue in every election across the nation!

As Jesus told the Jews, the reason many won’t hear my voice or the voice of others who consistently speak truth about trump is because they do not want to hear truth and they are following the dictates of the devil. It doesn’t matter whether those who refuse to hear and accept truth call themselves Christians or not. If they refuse to hear and speak truth, it’s because they are not “Bible Christians” but conservative Christians who are in essence–false Christians. I am a Bible Christian and I will speak truth and if people choose to hear it, great, if not–great. I will be held accountable for what I do–and they will be held accountable for what they do. I will speak truth and speak truth, shaming the devil. By the way, the title of this blog is reflective of what I’ve heard a number of preachers say, “tell the truth and shame the devil.” It is appropriate at this time and place in our history. We must tell the truth–the world sees and recognizes the truth and they’re judging the rest of us as to whether or not–we will. Russia has an asset in the WH and his name is donald trump.

For instance, the special counsel that trump keeps trying to impugn (along with a number of republican congressmen) is not conducting a witch hunt (and if they are–they’re finding witches with all the indictments). The “witch hunt” theory is simply smoke and mirrors propaganda, designed to keep his base from hearing the truth. It’s a tactic also used by other dictators–along with maligning the press–especially those who print and broadcast truth. The devil is afraid of truth, which is why he tries so hard to keep people from hearing the truth. For if people heard truth and spoke truth, the devil would be out of business and peace would be possible on earth–in all countries.

Another tactic being used to erode truth is the misleading information about the Democratic Party–created by the GOP to malign Democrats. There is propaganda being spread all over the Internet via blogs, ads, and videos–produced by conservative entities that are determined to suppress the vote–especially the vote of the Black Community. If anyone in the Black Community has succumbed to the GOP lies, it’s time they woke up to truth–the truth is that Republicans don’t want you to vote unless you side with them. And the reason they want you to side with them is so they can–call a Constitutional Convention, rewrite the Constitution, and take away the rights of all people of color and women. Don’t believe me–do some research for yourself. This is all part of the plan to allow the United States of America to slide into tyranny. Look at the imbalance of power that exists and know that if Republicans remain in control of all branches of government, there will only be a dictatorship governing.

Look, this is not about abortion rights and religious freedom as those “conservative (false) Christians would have people to believe–this is about our democracy–about putting country before political party. If we don’t, we all suffer the consequences and none of us will survive the outcome for long. We already see increased cost at gas pumps, transportation of food and goods, and in October–the increase in healthcare insurance will be more than many of us can afford–all because of party partisanship that cares not one whit about the people. The fact that elected officials have lined their own pockets and bank accounts is the fault of those who voted for them without paying attention to their open agenda–they did not hide their agenda, but they were counting on people to put political party before what’s best for the country. And here we are!

However, just because we’re here–facing the possibility of seeing the demise of American freedoms, we don’t have to let it happen. The only way we can stop what’s happening right now is get out and vote and vote Blue–No Matter Who! We have to vote Blue in every local, state–primary and general election to get America back on track to sustain our Democracy. If we fail to do that–this November 6, 2018–we may never get a chance to vote again. Again, don’t believe me–do some research and determine the agenda that trump is pushing in order to give Putin the advantage over America. I will never stop fighting to keep our Democracy strong and to keep a dictator from running rough shod over all.

In Michigan–for our primary on 8/7/18–vote for Gretchen Whitmer for Governor and Dana Nessel for Attorney General and Ellen Lipton for CD09 and Kristina Lodovisi for state Senator.  In November–Vote Blue–again for Gretchen, Dana and all other Democrats on the ballot. For Supreme Court Judges–vote for Sam Bagenstos and Megan Cavanaugh to balance decision-making.  Don’t allow GOP tactics to keep you under the thumb of a rising dictator in America.

Across this great nation on November 6, 2018 rise up and vote in numbers never thought of before and make your voices heard–We Do Not Want A Dictator ruling this country–so Vote Blue–No Matter Who–across the land.

What Supporting Caging Children Says!

What Supporting Caging Children Says!

In this political climate–forged by hatred and bigotry on one side (the trump regime), children are caged like animals–separated from their parents–all because they dared to seek asylum in America. I know there are many people who have varying thoughts about this situation, but that doesn’t change the core of the problem. These families–who feared persecution, torture and all sorts of inhumane acts against them–risked their lives and their children’s lives to get away from their countries–hopeful of finding safe haven in the United States.

Unfortunately, what they found was a hateful, bigoted regime–financed by tax payers who would rip their children from their arms, farm them out to detention centers and cage them–without the parents knowing where their children or how they’re being treated. This is the act of a “rogue government” who has demonstrated on more than one occasion they have not respect for the rule of law. Because of their zero tolerance for other human beings seeking safety, we should treat them (Jeff Sessions, Kirsten Nielsen, and trump) the same way–like they are inferior human beings because they are.

The assenting by silence and inaction GOP Congress–does not deserve to maintain their seats in Congress and should be voted out–summarily this November 6, 2018 and for those seats that are up for re-election in the Senate–we need to change the balance of power before we all lose what fragile rights, now observed.

The GOP have failed their constitutional obligations–to keep a check on whoever is in the White House. Because of their inability to do their job–which includes enacting common sense gun reform and immigration policies, we find ourselves in a country which it is easier to buy a gun than it is to get healthcare or get Congress to do their job.

We have a choice in the upcoming elections and the choice should resonate loud and clear to those in the White House–we will not tolerate children being treated like animals! For any “Conservative Christian” to continue to support trump and his unAmerican policies, shame on you. You are not the Christians recognized in the bible. In fact, I doubt seriously if God would recognize any of you as being followers of Jesus Christ. How do I know? Your fear and propensity to accept and promote fearmongering rhetoric tells me so. “Perfect love (unconditional) casts aside fear.” So if you’re acting out of fear simply because a bigoted racist tells you to be afraid, you do not belong to Christ. If you believe trump’s lies and promotes them, you are of your father, Satan–who is the father of lies. And just so you know–Jesus was a brown-skinned man–not white. Those are lies perpetuated throughout Christendom in nations who prefer to promote “white superiority” instead of love towards all human beings.

What you need to do is come out from behind the walls of “fearmongering in the guise of Conservative Christianity” and get acquainted with the real world. More crime is committed by those who were born in this country–Black and White–than any of the immigrants who came here. And while I’m on the subject–the only two groups of people in this country right now–that were never immigrants to America–are the Native Inhabitants and Slaves. Everyone else–chose to come here–as an opportunity to thrive and excel and now–some of you want to deny others the opportunity your ancestors had.

Make no mistake, those of us who are watching and have been paying attention–we knew–Make America Great Again–was all about trying to make America white again. We’re not stupid. I said this from the very beginning of the 2016 presidential campaigns and many tried to tell me I was wrong. What was that? I can’t hear you. Tell me again, I was wrong and I’ll call you a liar to your face (at least your online presence). We have the most bigoted racist person sitting in the Oval Office–ever in the 20th Century and it’s all due to the lie promoted by White Evangelicals and their congregations. GOD DID NOT CHOOSE TRUMP–YOUR BIGOTRY AND FEAR CHOSE TRUMP!

And please–don’t bother to tell about me about your being pro-life because the evidence is in–GOP policies decimate the poor and vulnerable–those lives outside the womb. Those who proclaim they are pro-choice actually mean they are “pro-fetus” since they could care less about life once it puts in appearance. Christian Conservatives are not Christians, but religious people (modern day Pharisees) who are only interested in “controlling” others. That evidence is readily seen–efforts to disband Planned Parenthood (out of fear of white extinction), controlling women’s health and reproductive choices, while at the same time–encouraging sexual predators as revealed in the party of trump. I know a number of Republicans who are not thrilled with the direction this country is taking and some of them are even advocating that everyone vote for Democrats–to save our democracy from becoming a fascist regime led by trump and his Putin cohorts.

Listen and learn, watch a real news channel (Fox is not licensed to produce news, but opinions) and do some research for yourself rather than sitting by complacently waiting to be fed the latest lie. If you support caging children and separating them from their parents, you are not a Bible Christian, but an inhuman perpetrator of lies. And God, not me–will hold you accountable for what you do or don’t do–claiming to be a follower of Christ.

I’m Tired!

I’m Tired!

I’m tired of all the lies and all the liars!

I’m tired of Republicans acting like there’s nothing wrong with trump.

I’m tired of the white Evangelicals making excuses for the WH menace.

I’m tired of trump supporters’ inability to think for themselves.

I’m tired of the media outlets allowing ignorance to manipulate the news cycles.

I’m tired of seeing children separated from their parents being treated like animals.

I’m tired of people who know truth but won’t speak up to help end this nightmare.

I’m tired of politicians who are afraid to speak truth to power because they might lose an election.

I’m tired of all the people who complain, but won’t vote to change things.

I’m tired of listening to the cult expound the lies they’ve been told and believe.

I’m tired of those who won’t uphold their oaths of office and are allowing this country to sink.

I’m tired of apologizing to our allies for the nut job in the WH.

I’m tired of watching rising prices for gas, good and healthcare.

I’m tired of people thinking that Democrats can’t be Christians even though we’re more Christian than the Republicans who apparently don’t know Jesus.

I’m tired of the evil ones who use the bible to perpetuate their evil.

I’m tired of not knowing where all this will end–in the next year or two.

Okay, so I’m tired and I’m sure there are millions of others just as tired as I am of all the stupid we’ve had to endure. There is a way out from under the stupid–people simply have to get out and vote and vote for the party who has a heart, not just ideological beliefs.

Regardless of party affiliation or none–it’s time for Americans to step up and take control of the situation and vote for Democrats up and down the ballot in every city, township, and state. We must start where we live with local elections and then spread it out to all the general elections so the United States of America will have a chance to preserve our democracy for future generations.

Are you ready? Let’s get it done!

Criticizing Leaders Is American!

Criticizing Leaders Is American!

Okay, I’m a bit frustrated with all the nonsense promoted by the #MAGA group who think that criticizing trump is anti-American. The truth of the matter is–they do not understand the first amendment rights provided in The Constitution. Better yet, they have no idea what the Constitution really says about anything and since they don’t read, they won’t.

Bottom line is this–under the first amendment of the Constitution, we all have the right to the freedom of expression. So when we criticize the the WH idiot because of all the idiotic things he does, we have a right to do so. After all, American and the entire world saw all the “criticism” of President Obama that was never-ending and still going on now, even though he’s no longer the president of the United States (still better than the one in the Oval Office at the moment). So let’s look at who is truly un-American, Anti-American because they criticized and lied on, President Obama. The list is long so if I missed a few, let me know.

Donald Trump–must be un-American/Anti-American because he promoted the lie that Obama was not born in the United States.

Melania Trump for parroting the lie.

Mitch McConnell–criticized Obama from day one and deliberately thwarted Obama’s efforts to do his job. “We’ll make sure he’s a one-term president and obstruct anything he wants to do.” (Remember that one, Mitch?)

Paul Ryan

Rand Paul

Mitt Romney

Orrin Hatch

Steve King

Bill O’Reilly

All Fox News Hosts

All Media

Most Republicans (and some Democrats)

Most Evangelicals (and faux Christians)

The KKK

And anyone else who “dared to criticize” the president, including me. When I don’t agree, I criticize, but it doesn’t make me un-American/Anti-American. It proves that I am an American who knows my rights as an American. Do you get it now?

Just remember–Karma bites–when trying to malign others and trying to place them in hell–simply because “you don’t know The Constitution” can have its drawbacks. Ask Larry Kudlow–he’ll understand.

And get this–only in a fascist regime, authoritarian government where a dictator reigns is “criticism not allowed.” Ask those in Russia, China, Venezuela, or NK or any other country that does not have a democracy that gives people the right to say what they want to say. Go ahead–ask them! And until you understand what the 1st amendment means, stop trying to coerce others into believing what you believe. We don’t have to believe you, anymore than you have to believe us.

But just so you know–I’ve taken the opportunity to remind you below–about The Bill of Rights included in The Constitution of the United States (not the divided states of trump). https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/bill-of-rights-transcript

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. (notice this says nothing about the right of individuals to stockpile weapons or to even own them).

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Now check out the “preamble” of the Constitution:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Notice how it starts–“We the People of the United States” and not an illegitimate president…One person does not decide what we can or cannot do in this country–and those of us who love this country, will make sure we preserve our democracy and all of the rights it affords others whether we like them or not; agree with them or not, because it is every person’s right to agree or disagree, criticize or not. That’s what it means to be an American, in America.
So, trump is wrong, Mike Pence is wrong, Jeanine Pirro is wrong, Larry Kudlow is wrong, Peter Navarro is wrong and so is everyone else who thinks we shouldn’t criticize trump or any other president. Get the facts and understand your rights and the rights of others.
1st amendment
We Do Have Choices!

We Do Have Choices!

No matter what “traditional thinking” is regarding tribalism when it comes to politics–we do not have to vote for a person just because they’re in the “right party” or because of their political careers or celebrity status or their gender. What should be important to all, in any election, is the candidate and what they stand for. (Shudder now known tribalists).

I know there are some who say we should vote for those with political experience. The problem with that is–if those are the only people we vote for–no one else ever gets a chance to learn how to govern. We cannot be expected to know or understand those things to which we have never been exposed. However, committing to being a life-long learner puts in a position to learn and do. After all, what’s the point of learning things if we never have an opportunity to apply what we’ve learned.

Therefore, in the 2018 election cycle–there are many people who have never entered into politics before now but chose this moment and hour to make a difference. Not only will this hold true for the 2018 election election cycle, but for 2020 election cycle and every election cycle afterwards until the United States of America is truly governed by, the people–the Everyday Americans–who understand what is needed for all.

Since the Republican party–(Conservatives or whatever they choose to call themselves) have abdicated their responsibility in allowing a fascist to run rough shod over America, it’s time to let them rest and reconsider the role they could have to play in American politics. In order to make sure we fully root out the problems–I think the Republican party needs a 20 year rest–just enough time for them to regroup and rethink what it means to be an American and who Americans are. Until they understand this–they should never be in a position to legislate laws or govern anyone, but themselves.

In essence–in order to purge the evil intent, greedy corrupt malefactors from Congress and local governments all over the country–the #BlueWaveTsunami is a must–to save humanity and our planet.

No matter what ethic group we identify with or gender or religious group–no matter what our political party affiliations are–we are all Americans and we should respect all Americans whether we agree them or not–it’s called “choice.” We do not have to denigrate those with whom we disagree nor do we need to try maligning them to make ourselves look better. In fact, any time we have to resort to “dirty political tactics” by dredging up every known and unknown thing about a person, we have wasted precious time and resources that could have been used to exalt what we want others to remember us by–where we stand and why.

So, here’s the point of this particular blog post–I am a Black woman who is daring to entertain the idea of running for president in 2020. Some have said, I won’t make it because my limited political experience; some have reminded be of the odds against me simply because I’m a Black woman, and some don’t think I can withstand public scrutiny and daggers thrown by those opposing my run.

They have a point–though I began this exploration with limited political experience, I’m gaining insight as to what I need to know by becoming a precinct delegate and being appointed to my city’s Zoning Board of Appeals Commission. I’m competing training modules provided by the National Democratic Training Committee and learning from those who have already cleared the path. I will be the 8th Black Woman or the 9th Black woman to run for president (if Kamala Harris gets her paperwork in before me). Being a Black woman is not going to deter me from seeking to do good–it never has and it never will.

I have a heart to save and a desire to push America forward and help prepare everyone to handle the technological challenges and in restoring our global position with other nations. I am an Everyday American, with no political baggage, no celebrity status, and no desire to be a “bought” candidate. No one can bribe, bully, or blackmail me about anything. And yes, I am an imperfect human being, which makes me a Flawed But Fearless Fighter for justice for all. I’ve accomplished quite a bit in my life and I don’t plan to stop accomplishing until I’m dead (in about 34 years from now). For the rest, if anyone wants to know more they can simply review where I stand on facebook.com/YesIAm2020 or do a search on my name. Nothing new can dissuade me and nothing old will deter me from my destiny in 2020. Win or lose (and I do plan to win), I’m making the case for everyone–to exercise their right to choose–remembering we do have choices.

I’m choosing the candidates I know will fight for all–not because of gender or party, but because of who they are in 2018. I hope in 2020–people will do the same–and vote for an Everyday American–in every election–to govern all Everyday Americans.

America working
