WE THE PEOPLE ARE STRONG

Pietro Savo

WE find ourselves in a political battle the elitist who created it, can only win. Winning in a manner determined to feed their egos with no regard for the wishes of the PEOPLE! Whatever happened to “WE THE PEOPLE”?

Today the elitist believe that WE cannot make sound decisions without their meddling. WE are descendants of explorers who have traveled across great oceans for FREEDOM. We are descendants of pioneers who ventured out into the vast wilderness for FREEDOM. WE THE PEOPLE able to adapt and live in any environment on earth, yet today our elected politicians create laws that make us helpless!

WE THE PEOPLE are strong and willing once again to earn our FREEDOM, for FREEDOM is the real meaning of WE THE PEOPLE ARE STRONG!

2010-Midterm Elections Coming Early To The State of Massachusetts

It appears that perhaps the 2010-midterm elections coming early to the State of Massachusetts. With the passing of Ted Kennedy, filling his senatorial seat decided by a special election. As Massachusetts’ law stand today the special election will be open to all political parties. Massachusetts law requires a special election within 145-160 days after a Senate seat becomes vacant and the law prohibits the governor from making an interim appointment. This was not always the case in Massachusetts, which last changed its succession law in 2004 to require a special election. Before that change, the governor could name a successor. At the time, the Democrat Party worried that the Republican Governor Mitt Romney would be able to fill any vacancy created if Democratic Senator John Kerry became elected president, obviously changing the rules to best fit the Democrat Party’s politics of the day (Source: CNN).

Imagine what would happen if we change the rules to favor the New York Yankees before the next Boston Red Sox World Series.

Ironically, the American Revolution began at Christ Church in Boston where it was “one if by land, two if by sea,” by passionate people who believed in freedom, liberty, and developed what we call today democracy (Source: Library of Congress). Such important history beginning in Massachusetts is on the verge of historic significance once again.

The question now becomes will the Democrat Party change the rules to keep this senatorial seat or will they put their trust in our democracy and fair play?

Democracy is Not A Polite and Pretty Entity

USA

Many of my liberal, moderate, and conservative friends focus more on the argument than the actual importance of having the argument. Agree or not, the disagreement of different political viewpoints represents the only true important factor in the rhetoric. We must never stop debating, never stop disagreeing, and never stop questioning because that is what democracy is all about. Democracy is not a polite and pretty entity; it can become fearful for the light-at-heart. When we stop arguing, when the rhetoric becomes one-sided, when any side is no longer willing to question, we achieve pure submission. Submission does not work in a democracy; submission is not liberty nor is it being free. The human race has not achieved the top of the food chain because we were submissive. The human race represents the uppermost part of the food chain because we are willing to risk all to get our point across. What does this all mean, there is no real democracy without passionate rhetoric! Regardless of where your political beliefs reside, be it left, middle or right, is not the concern, what is important is questioning our government to keep them honest and true to our best wishes. When we are questioning, we’re pro-actively taking the time to understand each issue that interests us, and affects us, as long as we independently determine our own belief at the end of the day that is true democracy. Read, write, and question everything!

Homeland Security Problem is the “Tip of The Iceberg!”

check please

The poorly informed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano apologized to veterans after a report issued by her department said troops returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were at risk for recruitment by right-wing extremists. A leader’s role in a democratic society is to have enough experience to avoid insulting the men and women serving in the Armed Forces that keep them safe. Our Constitutional Fathers were patriots who believed in the freedoms that today are at risk because government officials act without thinking. Ultimately, we believe and hope the Obama administration finally becoming staffed with smart people; however, the evidence is contrary. Now the question that comes to mind, where was the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) while this government wrongly insulted and accused our veterans?

What happen to due process for our Armed Forces, what happened to due-process according to the ‘law of the land’ and whose duties it to protect the Armed Forces’ civil liberties? Napolitano’s apology was not the solution; she was simply re-acting to the symptom, getting to the root cause to Napolitano department’s error, the only way to ensure it never happens again.

Our founding fathers, as a deterrent against fancy governmental double speak, created the Constitution. Due process for all citizens is the law. When supposedly smart people from the Obama administration insult our nation’s finest citizens, this problem is simply the Tip of The Iceberg. Again another reason why government must be for the people and not just for more government, ACLU asleep on watch once again, clearly time to cut the ACLU’s funding!

The Torture Genie Has Been Out of The Bottle Since The Beginning of Time!

During a business flight to Arizona, I sat next to a Greek American who emigrated in 1978. As conversations go typically, any subject is fair game during a flight. This Greek American explained, America’s perception of righteousness, the reason he immigrated to America is now tarnished, and set back 100 years. He went on to explain when America admitted to torturing prisoners that everything that made it a morally acceptable country has now become erased. My response to his thought process and comments was more or less an attempt in reasoning; since the beginning of time, humans have practice some type of anguish to extract information from other humans. I went on to explain that every government and military in the world practices some form of torture for extracting information. The mere fact that America admitted that some forms of torture are used for prisoner interrogation is a sign of America’s true integrity, and when a nation says they don’t use forms of torture to interrogate prisoners, they are not telling the truth. This Greek American looked bewildered as if he couldn’t believe my last comment.

You don’t have to be an advocate of torture to understand that using different forms of anguish treatment exist; it will continue no matter if we approve or not, because necessity is the true Mother Of Invention. This genie has been out of the bottle since the beginning of time, and anguish treatment is just one symptom, and not the root-cause of our problems!

Thank you Mrs. Ferguson from Henderson Texas

pietro savo

While waiting for my flight home from Las Vegas, I looked up from my laptop long enough to see an elderly woman walking with a cane towards me. She introduced herself as Mrs. Ferguson from Henderson Texas. She was clearly of Mexican national origin, and did not look like what I perceived a Mrs. Ferguson should look like. Before I could ask, she started telling her life’s story. “I’m a Mexican American, and I have lived in Alaska, Hawaii, Tennessee, Texas, and Germany, and the father of my four children, my first husband was killed in Vietnam. When she first came to America, she learned to speak English, and she admitted proudly, honored and privilege to do so.

Later in her life she met a Mr. Ferguson from Henderson Texas her second and current husband, “I real hillbilly from Texas” she said, I never cared too much for hillbillies until I met my husband. Growing up in America it seemed the hillbillies were not very tolerant of Mexicans, and now I am a hillbilly, life is funny that way. She smiled and reminded me that we are all immigrants in America.

Until that point, her voice had much excitement in it, and then she began to speak about the Mexican mountain people and how the Mexican government was trying to starve them to death. These people will eventually grow tired of this and fight back, and that is what people do! Thank you Mrs. Ferguson for a simple reminder of what people do.
