I tried to make the language accessible to the largest range in audience. Are you smarter than me? Probably. At least you’ll be able to understand everything I have said. Was it hard to read? I apologize I am not an author. Definitely not an author famous enough to break the rules of grammar intentionally… As I have just done. These are not policies or plans for action that I aim to enforce. Just an insight to who I am and the way I think.

The articles may be updated throughout the life of this website. I may feel like my message was poorly worded or I find a spelling error(I have no staff to screen and approve this message for the sponsors. In addition, I have no sponsors… to whom I have given your vote for money.

Take your voice back.

Too many of us must live under the rule of two parties unwilling to compromise through reasonable discourse. If we do not side with them, then our vote is wasted. In the meantime we wait for a hero to stand up and save us. A figure whose qualifications are so demanding we have found the role impossible to fill. We are left to pick between the lesser of two evils. Both of which were simply the politicians most capable of fundraising. Promises made behind closed doors to donors who play both sides. The only one able to self finance their way to the top lacking any sense of common decency. Speech after speech from the mouths of politicians filled with flowery rhetoric. Designed to secure the vote of already loyal members and increase their social media following.

What about the voice of the majority? The majority who exist in the grey area. Free thinkers who cannot agree with either side across the board. The people who strive to understand the nuances to every issue. Non-voters, Independents, Libertarians, and everyone who doesn’t belong in the forty percent of the population the two major parties split?

Interviews

The interview begins at time stamp 33min:29sec. This was the first interview I’ve participated in. It was a new experience and I know that my nerves had gotten the better of me. I did not explain my actual beliefs, spending too much time discussing peripheral ideals, and failing to deliver the message I had intended. I didn’t not lie but I definitely catered to the listener I assumed existed and that was my biggest regret. I know what I believe and I need to keep it simple.

President Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”

“Believe you can and you're halfway there.”

“When you're at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.”

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.”

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.”

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

President Thomas Jefferson

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

“Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.”

President Abraham Lincoln

“I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.”

“Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today”

“Whatever you are be a good one”

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power”

President John F. Kennedy

“Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.”

“Do not ask for an easy life. Pray to be stronger men.”

Inspirational Quotes to Reflect Upon

 

President George Washington

“Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who make excuses”

Benjamin Franklin

"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."

"Well done is better than well said."

"We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately."

"We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid."

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."

“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

“The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all others, charity.”

“War is when the government tells you who the bad guy is.
Revolution is when you decide that for yourself.”

“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
When you're down to nothing, God is up to something. The faithful see the invisible, believe the incredible and then receive the impossible.
Where liberty dwells there is my country.“

“It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.”

“He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security.”

President Millard Fillmore

"An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory."

President John Tyler

“I can never consent to being dictated to.”

President Dwight Eisenhower

“Pessimism never won any battle.”

“If you want total security, go to prison. There you will be fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only things lacking is freedom.”

“Never question another man’s motive. His wisdom, yes, but not his motives.”

 
 

Carl Sagan

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

“For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.”

“Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.”

“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere”.

“For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”

“We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.”


Mark Twain

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”

“An honest man in politics shines more there than he would elsewhere.”

President William Taft

“We must dare to be great; and we must realize that greatness is the fruit of toil and sacrifice and high courage.”

President Woodrow Wilson

“The object of love is to serve, not to win.”

President James Madison

“If tyranny and oppression come to this land it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”

President Franklin Roosevelt

”The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”

“What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight- it’s the size of the fight in the dog”

President George W. Bush

”There’s an old saying in Tennessee- I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on- shame on you. Fool me - you can’t get fooled again.”
