Corruption Reduction

 Regardless of which side you’re on, be it Conservative or Liberal, there is an overriding similarity between us; we both believe that there is rampant corruption, in government and in the world.  

We have not determined the differences of who is behind that corruption, leaving us all pointing our fingers toward each other.  The question that must be asked is:  Are most people corrupt?   By themselves, are individual’s corrupt, or do they only become corrupted when they succumb to the forces put upon them by others?

Corruption is “dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery”.  I would add for the purpose of amassing power or control over others to that definition since the power to control others seems to be a more fundamental purpose.  

“Everyone has a Price” suggesting that everyone is susceptible to being corrupted if the price is right.  To some extent, some people will lower their standards if they achieve what they believe to be beyond their ability or power, even if that decision has deleterious effects on others.  Those who chose those decisions are then more corrupted than those who do not.

Perhaps most of us are corruptible, but only to a point.  When we get an unobstructed view of our actions and the consequences of those choices, we invariably feel the guilt associated with those decisions or thoughts, that is a good thing, it is not good to ignore those feelings.

Our problem today is that I and many like me look at those who favor liberalism and think, “the end justifies the means”, meaning that anything is acceptable to the left if they achieve their goals.  On the flip side, Liberals probably have the same bias.  Are we both wrong?  Is one side more wrong than the other?  Are liberals more corruptible than conservatives, or is it the other way around?  How do we establish the truth of these allegations for both sides of the ideological spectrum?

There has to be a right way and a wrong way.  One side or the other is more corruptible than the other, but when your viewing life through the lens of that ideology the view toward the other side is so clouded and obscured by our own view that it is impossible to justify the logic amid the chaos.  

In the definition of Corruption, it states that only those in power can be corrupt, but when a government is corrupt, the citizens soon follow and become corrupt.   Not all fall prey to the corruption above but it is very much like the trickle-down approach, Corruption breeds more corruption, which then normalizes corruption to where it becomes normal.

Despite who is more corrupt, the Right or the Left, the only way to disengage your lives from that negative normalization is to eschew all forms of corruption, in all its forms and from every avenue that enters our homes, our businesses, and our personal lives.  That means we need to act honorably and faithfully towards others.  

We need to be honest and respectful, compassionate, with empathy and understanding to others different from us.  Only then will we be able to recognize the tendrils of corruption and the puppet masters that attempt to control our lives, our freedoms, and our liberties.  Only then will we be able to see, eye to eye, and work together in building a better life, a free life, a life of joy and happiness, peace, and freedom.

Belief in God, is to me, a fundamental principle of how to fight corruption.  Without God, the motivation for curbing “the end justifies the means” philosophy becomes lost to our souls, leaving a gaping hole where Faith used to live. 


The alternative will be exactly what we have now but with no chance of change and no power to enact any changes.  We will be slaves to those above.  

I Will Never Be a Slave!

This Divided America is Good

The division of America is not necessarily a bad thing.  It is easy to see what the two sides want, Democrats and Republicans or more succinctly the Right vs the Left;  it diametrically opposes them to each other.

The Right wants to keep the America as it was created; the Left wants to ”fundamentally change” what America means and stands for.

The problem is the Left uses language that helps them accept those proposed changes as Americans, as essential to the ever-changing needs of the populous and the ever-expanding and living document of the Constitution.

There is ample evidence that supports that ideology.  One overwhelming fact is in the contrast between the actual Constitution as written and the adopted laws that have been implemented to administer that Constitution.  There are 4,743 words in the original Constitution.  The actual laws and rules of our enforced constitution exceed over 3,000 PAGES.  That is a problem.  

The other issue is the obvious move by the Left towards Socialism.  No longer is the word whispered between secretive individuals and groups; it is now an open and welcome goal of many on the Left.

The “Righ”t is opposed to such a departure, from the divinely inspired words of our Constitution.

Therein lies the division,  therein lies the need to divide, the need to distinguish between those who want to destroy our system of Government and those on the “Right” who want to protect it and even move closer towards its precepts.

I am strongly in favor of this division.  I want to know who is my enemy and who is attempting to destroy my Country.  I am an originalist; I am a constitutionalist and I want my Country to follow those 4,743 words and move away from the 3,000 pages of compromise, obfuscation the purposely tries to confuse and cloud the intent of our Founding Fathers.

We will no longer be America if the Left is allowed to prevail.  We will be American’s in name only; that is not good enough for me.

Voting Violations


I want to make sure that what I think is happening is not just a waking nightmare, but a real historical or should I say hysterical event?

This is what I know:

Prior to Trump taking the oath of office, the Democrats were talking impeachment.  The talk of impeachment was only general with no charges attached.  This is disturbing.  To think an opposition party could conjure up such a plan prior to any chance of impeachable offense is beyond the mind of any honest or moral individual. 

The rhetoric of Impeachment continued non-stop, along with a lengthy and extensive investigation that ended with Mueller finding nothing.  With the Russian connection imploding the House of Representative changed tactics and charged Trump with Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress, over a simple phone call of congratulations to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  After the trial, they found Trump to be innocent, well; the Republican-controlled Senate acquitted Trump.

They found the false allegations of Abuse of Power and Obstruction to be baseless.  It makes you wonder why the Democrats would stoop to such a tactic when they had to know what they were peddling was false.  Hate, makes people do unthinkable things.  Hate misaligns the brain's moral center, creating a chasm where truth used to exist. In the absence of morality, anything can be rationalized as essential if your end goal is clearly defined,  and their end goal was very defined, get rid of Trump, at all costs.

The end goal for the Democrats and the media was and still is the destruction of Trump.  Nothing else matters.  Nothing else takes precedence and nothing gets in their way in accomplishing that end.

Also, prior to Trump’s inauguration, there were allegations against General Flynn and as a result, Flynn resigned but only because he had lied to the Vice President and not anything to do with the allegations of misconduct in relation to the Logan Act (18 U.S.C. §953) which is a more than a 200-year-old criminal statute that purports to ban Americans from engaging in unauthorized negotiations with officials from a foreign government, having a dispute with the United States.

No one has ever been convicted of this statute.  In fact, during the recent Senate hearing with Andrew McCabe, Senator Cruze asked if Biden should be investigated under the Logan Act since he was also talking to foreign leaders.  “He should not” (paraphrase) answered McCabe.

At every turn, every day, and often multiples times a day Trump was subjected to ridicule and called a racist, a misogynist, a fascist, a warmonger...the list goes on.  Members of Congress, Democratic members of Congress openly threatened his safety and the safety of his family by promoting unrest.  Listen to Maxine Waters and her almost daily attempts to undermine his presidency.

The democratic party platform is filled with Hate Trump rhetoric.  Besides hating Trump, they did all they could to get others to hate. The Democratic party has adopted anticapitalistic measures like the Green New Deal that will destroy our economy, make America dependent on others for Energy and deepen the pockets of those who lead us.  Taxes will be raised by dismantling the tax policies of Trump and by instituting direct taxes to pay for the socialistic measures favored by the Democratic party.

This is the first time in my memory and within the written memory of our History that a President has been attacked on all fronts by a coordinated assault by the opposing party, and by the News Media, with rare exceptions from conservative media personalities. Perhaps it had something to do with his promises to “drain the swamp”...too many that were living in that swamp fought back and the results are what we see politically.  

And then there was COVID-19, a real and dangerous virus that spread like wildfire, infecting millions of unsuspecting people and changing the world.  But, as it's been said, "never let a good crisis go to waste". The Covid disaster helped to accomplish some of those needed changes dreamed of by the Democrats. They changed the way we vote; we set aside voting standard and practices and instituted haphazard rules that included mail-in voting, that increased the numbers of dead people voting and those with double or even triple voting registrations.  

Limiting in person voting increased the potential for fraud, making it much easier to game the system. This new unchecked process of sending ballots to every past, present, and dead registered voter has dwarfed the corruption of old Chicago, making it possible to manipulate the vote count in virtually any contest, but even with all this, the race for President is close.  

It’s obvious that many dislike President Trump, but a recent poll shows that 70 million Republicans agree that this election was fraudulent.  70,000,000 Million active and concerned citizens have grave concerns about how President Trump was unjustly maligned and they have concerns regarding the validity of the Electoral Process. 

 Estimates report that nearly 160 million people voted this year.  70 million of those voters or approximately 44% of all voters believe that their votes were marginalized.  

That brings me to the real issue:  Since Trumps Presidency has been on the defensive from day one, and since he has had to waste valuable time defending himself against baseless claims and constant innuendo and spurious claims against his character, Donald J. Trump might have a reason to stop the entire election process and make the simple decision that because the elections cannot be verified, the elections should be redone.  Within a two-week window those taking part will have to show ID, No mail-in ballots,  absentee ballots would still be valid and all persons voting would have to visit a polling place designated and approved, with witnesses on both sides of the congressional aisle.

Redo the election, follow the standards that have been used for years, and then we can all see who really wins.

This is not about politics, not about ideology, this is about integrity, honesty, and reestablishing our faith in a system that is fairly and equally administered.  Unfortunately, now all we have is a mess.
