I have a dream!

In 1776 the thirteen original United States colonies drafted the Declaration of Independence; a document that said, in part “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness”. In 1787 the Constitution was ratified by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This document is the supreme law of our country and gives us our Bill of Rights. “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”, as stated by our first Amendment. Seventy five years later Abraham Lincoln delivered the Emancipation Proclamation declaring freedom to all slaves in the Confederate States of America. Two years later in 1865 the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified to the Constitution officially abolishing slavery.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 the son of Alberta Williams King and Martin Luther King Sr. in Atlanta Georgia. Growing up in Georgia, Martin Luther King Jr attended segregated schools, graduating high school at the age of fifteen. In 1948 he received a B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) Degree from Morehouse College, a distinguished Negro institution of Atlanta, both father and grandfather graduated from Morehouse College. After Morehouse, King spent three years at Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania where he received a B.D. (Bachelor of Divinity) Degree in 1951. When he finished his studies at Crozer he enrolled in graduate studies at Boston University. He completed his residence for the doctorate in 1953 and in 1955 he received his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.d).
While in Boston, King meet a young women name Coretta Scott and on June 19, 1953 Coretta Scott and Martin Luther King, Jr. were married on the lawn of her parent’s house. The ceremony was performed by Martin Luther King, Sr. Scott and King would go on to have four children. After school and marriage, Martin Luther King, Jr. accepted a pastoral role at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church where his father was also a pastor in Montgomery, Alabama.
Dr. King is one of the most widely revered figures in American History for his role in the civil rights movements. Inspired by Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi and Henry David Thoreau, Dr King led peaceful, non-violent protest for freedom and equality. Like Gandhi, King practiced Civil Disobedience.
In 1955 on December 1, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to comply with the Jim Crow Laws that required blacks to give up their seats to whites. This arrest led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, planned by E.D. Nixon and led by King. The boycott was a social and political protest intended to oppose the city’s policy of racial segregation on public transit systems. The boycott ended after 381 days when the Supreme Court of the United States had declared unconstitutional the laws requiring segregation on public transit. During these protest, King’s house was bombed, he was subjected to personal abuse and was arrested. However he emerged as a leader in the civil rights movement.
In 1963, before the March on Washington there was nation-wide outrage from media coverage of police actions in Birmingham, Alabama. Attack dogs and fire hoses were turned against protestors, many where in their teens. King was among the protestors that day and was arrested and while in jail he wrote his famous “Letter from Birmingham City Jail”. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was held on August 28, 1963 in Washington, D.C. Attended by over two hundred and fifty thousand people where he delivered his famous “I have a dream” speech. King was among the so-called “Big Six” leaders of civil rights organizations that were the main organizers of the march. The march was organized with specific demands to end racial segregation in public school, meaningful civil rights legislation, protection for demonstrators against police brutality and a two dollar an hour minimum wage.
In March of 1968 Dr. King went to Memphis Tennessee to support striking city garbage workers represented by AFSCME Local 1733. On April 3rd King went to Memphis where he addressed a rally and delivered his “I’ve been to the Mountaintop” address at Mason Temple. King was staying at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis in room 306. On the evening of April 4 while standing on his balcony of his hotel room at 6:01 PM Dr. Martin Luther King was shot in his right cheek. At 7:05 PM St. Joseph’s Hospital declared King dead. The assassination of Dr. King lead to nationwide riots and two months after his assassination, escaped convict James Earl Ray was captured and later sentenced to 99 years on a guilty plea.
In 1964 at the age of 35, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means. Dr. King was arrested over twenty times, he was assaulted at least four times, and he had his house bombed during his acts of civil disobedience and protest for equal rights. Between 1957 and 1968 he traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty five hundred times, he was awarded five honorary degrees, and was named Man of the Year by Time Magazine in 1963.

The fight for freedom and equality has been going on since the beginning of mankind and still continues today. Today is a day to honor a true hero in the march toward freedom and peace and a remembrance to all those who fought the fight before him and after him. Dr. King demonstrated that the message of freedom will always prevail.
edom will always prevail.

Paul is the taxpayer's friend

Flying back from a small firebase up close to the Cambodian border in a C-123 full of smoke and noise from a shot-out window on the night of Tet 1968, I had a feeling something was wrong.

Michigan, Nobody Cares!

Or at least the Democratic Party doesn’t care. Hilary Clinton, Dennis Kucinich, and uncommitted were the only 3 on the Democratic ballot in Michigan, and Kucinich lost to uncommitted. After the primaries in Michigan on Tuesday I would think the voters of Michigan should be upset at the Democrat Party. The Democrats were mad because Michigan moved its primary date from Super Tuesday to this Tuesday. Mad because they said it broke party rules. For breaking this rule, the Democrats pulled all their delegates and only Hillary Clinton and Dennis Kucinich remain on the ballot. The Republican Party pulled 30 delegates but all candidates stayed on the ballot. The move by the parties was done to try to stop states from moving up their primary dates. You could assume they thought that it would make the citizens of Michigan mad and force the state to keep its original primary election date. I am not a citizen of Michigan and it made me mad. Mad because I feel that this is once again an example of bullying a state and not respecting state rights. Both parties on the national level ordered their parties in Michigan to pull the delegates. Once again the two parties of the Democrats and Republicans have a big nationalist or big federalist agenda and those who think different then them get punished. In this case it was the voters of Michigan. If I had the voice and platform to be heard by all of them, I would encourage all of them to change their party affiliation to Independent. They can still vote in the General Election when registered as an Independent. I would ask the voters of Michigan not to donate any money to the Republican and Democratic Party. Who are they to tell a state when they can or can not hold their Primaries?
So now Michigan’s votes do not count when the DNC comes around. How can we hold an election in this country and have an entire state votes not count? This is not the American way and having two parties dominate the elections and try to make the rules is not the American way. I change my mind, every United States citizen should be mad.

Reuters: Ron Paul flies high above debate

At the debate, the giant blimp didn’t prevent Paul’s rivals from attacking his anti-war stance. Perhaps they’re just jealous.

Live Free or Die? New Hampshire votes Die

I'm suffering from mixed feelings about the New Hampshire primary results. I can't help but think something's gone terribly wrong with a state where people are supposed to generally want the government to leave them the hell alone.

New Hampshire GOP Withdraws Under Protest

Today the Fox News Channel held a Republican Presidential Forum just two days before the State’s primary election. To say the least it was not “fair and balanced”. Two of the republican candidates had been excluded from the forum, Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter. After protests from both candidates campaign the New Hampshire Republican Party has withdrawn its sponsorship of the event. "The New Hampshire Republican Party did the right thing by pulling its sponsorship for Fox's candidate forum," said Ron Paul 2008 spokesman Jesse Benton. "'Fox News' decision to exclude Congressman Paul is unfair, but it won't stop Dr. Paul's message of freedom, peace and prosperity from resonating with the people of New Hampshire.", reports Reuters.com.

New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen said today "The first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary serves a national purpose by giving all candidates an equal opportunity on a level playing field. Only in New Hampshire do lesser known, lesser funded underdogs have a fighting chance to establish themselves as national figures. Consistent with that tradition, we believe all recognized major candidates should have an equal opportunity to participate in pre-primary debates and forums.
"This principle applies to tonight's debates on ABC as well as Sunday's planned forum on FOX. The New Hampshire Republican Party believes Congressmen Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter should be included in the FOX forum on Sunday evening. Our mutual efforts to resolve this difference have failed.

"While we understand that FOX News continues to move forward it is with regret, the New Hampshire Republican Party hereby withdraws as a partner in this forum."

While Bill O’Reilly tried to explain why these two candidates where excluded saying it is because of their ratings in the polls. Ron Paul was polling at under five percent in Iowa and came out with an overall finish of ten percent, and Bill O’Reilly still says he has no chance. We know two things now-
1. Fox News is not “Fair and Balanced” and they do not give everyone a fair chance.
2. The polls are not accurate and do not reflect anything close to the final results.

Bill O'Reilly Doesn't Get It!

Bill O’Reilly like most people do not understand Ron Paul’s position on The War on Terror and Foreign policy. Now O’Reilly is a smart guy, so does he not get it or doesn’t he want to report it? Like many in the main-stream-media (msm) O’Reilly believes that Ron Paul is an isolationist that he will put this country in danger. Now believe it or not I use to be a fan of the O’Reilly Factor. However the more I started watching the more I learned that he is an authoritarian, of course he will deny it but watch and you will see. I would love to go on the O’Reilly factor and debate him about Ron Paul and his foreign policy.
Here is my take on it, I use to be a supporter of George W. Bush and I like many people believed in this war on terror. Even after campaigning for the primaries started I was still on that belief and was not for Ron Paul. Like most people truly interested in politics, I started looking into all the candidates. Mostly the republicans since I am registered as a republican, and I believe a bad republican is still better then a good democrat. A friend of mine who I frequently talk and/or debate politics with was a Ron Paul support from the beginning. So I decided to look into Ron Paul more. In the beginning there was a lot I liked about Ron Paul, the big issue I had with him was his views or foreign policy. I was not for “cut and run” as it has been called and I still am not for that idea (I will cover that on another blog). To make something else known, I am not a conspiracy theory person, I don’t believe 9/11 was an inside government job or that Pearl Harbor was ignored just to get us into World War II. So according to O’Reilly I am not a “pinhead” or a “left wing loon”. In fact just the opposite and I would challenge that I am more of a Patriot then Bill O’Reilly. I watched his show today and his interview with a Ron Paul supporter made me mad. Mad because O’Reilly is smarter then that, he could easily understand Ron Paul’s foreign policy if he would pay a little more attention to what Ron Paul is saying. One thing that really got me upset is when O’Reilly thought Ron Paul was crazy for saying that we should not be in Pakistan following Bhutto’s assassination. I ask O’Reilly, why would you call that crazy, why is it the business of the United States to be over in Pakistan with a military presence, ever more so after an assassination? Why Bill, why? He says because the Pakistan is unstable and the Jihadist might get control of the country and the nuclear bombs that Pakistan has, so naturally it is for our safety. So O’Reilly wants to spend our money, expose our military personnel, and push will upon these people based on an assumption that the jihadist might, might get their hands on Pakistan’s nukes. Is Ron Paul the crazy one? Bill O’Reilly calls Ron Paul crazy for not fearing Iran. Bill thinks we have to be in the Middle East and we have to be the ones to control Iran, that only America can bring stability to the Middle East. Who sounds crazy? As you recall I said at one time I disagreed with Ron Paul on his foreign policy, what changed? Well I listened to Dr. Paul and what he had to say, and then I listened to what people like Bill O’Reilly had to say. What changed it who I thought made more sense, which was Dr. Paul. So I thought I would take a moment and explain it to Mr. O’Reilly exactly what Dr. Paul is saying. It is believed that Ron Paul and his supporters are an extreme group. This is not the case and Bill O’Reilly and the MSM owes it to us to let us make our case and defend the accusations. We do not want a weak national defense, we do not want to America and its citizens to be attacked or killed in any way. In fact we believe the job of the government is to protect our life, liberty, and property. We just think it can be done a different way, our foreign policy hasn’t change in over 50 plus years. We believe it should change, we are willing to try it a different way. I also want to point out that Ron Paul has received more money in donations for military members then any other candidate and has a big support among many Veterans group. All this and the MSM still ignore him and make fun of his views.

Ron Paul and Foreign Policy

Ron Paul does not believe that we should be the world police and that we should only go to war with a declaration from congress. So why would O’Reilly think he is crazy for saying we shouldn’t be in Pakistan after the assassination of Bhutto. We had presidents and political figures assassinated here, how would we feel if Pakistan, Russia, or even England sent troops over here after JFK was assassinated? And we had an attempted assassination on Ronald Reagan. We would not be happy at all if other countries got involved and may I point out we have over 15,000 more nukes then Pakistan. Shouldn’t we let the people of Pakistan sort this out, and if the threat is what O’Reilly makes it out to be what is the United Nations doing, why is it just the United States and our troops, and our tax money? The answer is the United Nations is corrupt and useless. Oh and by the way Dr. Paul wants us to get out of the United Nations. Those who make fun of Dr. Paul’s when he talks about blow back are not paying attention. How would we feel if other countries got involved in our political process, assassination or not? If you have read the book “Black Hawk Down” by Mark Bowden, he discusses how many of the Somalis first supported the UN effort to help the country out, they would later despise it and America for the way we handled it. That many of them were capitalist but at the time of the famous black hawk down story all they could recall is helicopters tearing up their houses and soldiers killing their people, they soon joined in to kill Americans. And look almost a decade later and Somalia is still unstable. The United States foreign policy is hypocritical when it comes to countries we trade with and deal with. China, Russia, India, England, France, Israel, and Pakistan all have nukes, and we still trade with them, we don’t get involved with China like we do the Middle East and Pakistan. What about all the nukes floating around after the fall of the Soviet Union? Most people were more scared of the post Soviet era with all the rogue states and the amount of nuclear weapons that were unaccounted for then we were afraid of the Soviet Union its self. Saudi Arabia is not much better with civil rights, and their extreme leaders however we still are peaceful with them, trade with them and even sell them our military equipment.
O’Reilly thought Dr. Paul crazy for not being scared of Iran. That once Iran dominates the Middle East all hell will break lose. Dr. Paul believes we shouldn’t be preemptive and make our point that we might attack you. He feels that a country that doesn’t even have a nuke that doesn’t even have the ability to reach America with any kind of military force isn’t a threat. That sounds logical to me. Once again China, India and Russia have nukes why isn’t O’Reilly calling for America to attack them. It is said we do it to protect Israel, when did that become our job? Israel has over 300 nukes and a very capable military and Dr. Paul feels they can protect themselves. Why would Saudi Arabia and Israel let Iran dominate the Middle East? Why do O’Reilly and all the neo-cons think this is America’s job? Dr. Paul does not think this is the job of America and it a legitimate view point. We have plenty of oil in our own country, we have plenty of reliable importers of oil like Canada and Russia, why go to war over our oil interest? All we are asking for is let us try Dr. Paul’s way let us change our foreign policy. We want to have free trade with countries, no country that has ever been involved in free trade with the United States has ever gone to war with the United States. In a true capitalist society there is no room for war. The position is best stated by Ayn Rand in Capitalism The Unknown Ideal, “Capitalism is the only social system based on the recognition of individual rights, and therefore, the only system that bans force from social relationships. By the nature of its basic principles and interest, it is the only system fundamentally opposed to war”. Dr Paul’s position is simple America must led by example, if we are the wealthiest strongest country on the planet it is because of our freedom and that the freedom message will prevail. Until we pull our forces out of other countries and change our foreign policies we will never know if Ron Paul’s idea is the right idea, however we do know that the current status quo is not working. The attacks on September 11, 2001 were not the first attacks on America and yet our foreign policy has not changed in period between the other attacks and 9/11 and even after. There is no reason America should not maintain the best, most professional, strongest military on the planet, which is the best deterrent against anyone who would try to take away our freedoms. It should not be used to attack other countries and force our beliefs and will upon other nations and their people. Any country out there knows it is crazy and almost impossible to attack the United States, so why do we have our military based all over the world?
So why are Ron Paul and his supporter crazy for asking for a new policy? The real question is why are those in agreement with the status quo not crazy? A guest on O’Reilly’s show said Ron Paul does not have a plan in his foreign policy. Once again you have a person who is not paying attention. If O’Reilly wants to hear more of his plan then don’t just ask about Iran ask about his entire foreign policy, Dr. Paul will be glad to explain it. Dr. Paul does not smear anyone he does not have a negative campaign, don’t treat him with negativity give him the opportunity to tell you his plan. Just because your plan is simple and logical doesn’t mean it isn’t a plan.
