A good third of what I know – is self-taught. I did not learn it in a classroom. I did my research watching documentaries, reading books from the library, reading news articles from different viewpoints, reviewing academic journals and research.
A good chunk of what I learned in K-12 school was a load of garbage.
Take what we teach our children about Christopher Columbus. You know – how he is supposed to be this great hero who “discovered” the Americas . . . yeah right.
If we still teach our kids that lie, what other lies are they being taught now and what lies are YOU being told?
That is why Educating Yourself is So Important
Just a few short days ago, I acquired my first official job working in politics. I almost didn’t get the opportunity, because some people are still trapped in the left/right paradigm of it all.
I am working on the campaign for congressional hopeful from Petersburg, VA – Republican, Bonnie Girard. As many of you may already know, I would not fight for anything that I do not believe in – ever!
Bonnie is someone I can definitely stand behind. Her business experience over the last 30 years is exactly what Virginians need.
Before I took the job, I looked over her website and have met with her in person several times. She is by far one of the most down-to-earth people I have met.
She is spot on when she talks about the crisis we are dealing with in China.
In short: If we do not stop selling our debt to China – when they no longer need us to buy their stuff – we will owe them our lives and have nothing to offer – we will be screwed if something is not done to correct this.
If you are outside of Virginia’s 4th district, then is up to you to do your own research and to educate yourself about the candidates available. Be very careful though, because some of them may not even have a chance to win. My district is now gerrymandered to basically guarantee a republican win every time.
So, if you don’t vote for Bonnie, you’re voting for Forbes
They were a year late doing it – but Virginia’s 4th District was redrawn - effectively squandering the chances any Democrat ever had of winning and virtually guaranteeing that Forbes would keep his seat for the next ten years.
How did they do that you ask? They redrew the lines to conveniently exclude the City of Petersburg, whose citizens are mostly minorities and/or Democrats – and believe me that sways the vote largely in Forbes’ or any Republican’s favor.
So if you don’t get out and VOTE or encourage others to vote on June 12th in the 4th District Primary - you are sending the message that Forbes can stay and you’re allowing him to keep his job as a career politician who votes for things like indefinite detention for American citizens. Personally I can not stand the idea of a career politician. To me – it is part of what brings the corruption.
Fire Career Politicians
Bonnie Girard is running up against the incumbent, Randy Forbes – a career politician.
In general I think most Americans have gotten to the point where they think that all career politicians, like Forbes, should leave office and be replaced by working Americans, like Bonnie Girard. Who in her own campaign promises, says that she will fight for congressional term limits.
Being the incumbent is not the only reason to make sure Forbes doesn’t have a chance at making it back into the house.
There are plenty of Excellent Reasons to Take Forbes Out of Office
Forbes voted for CISPA and he voted for the NDAA, not to mention that he voted against the Smith-Amash ammendment which would have ended the indefinite detention part of the bill. He had two opportunities to protect Americans from indefinite detention and both times he chose not to do so.
If that is not reason enough for you to want him out of office then check out how much he and other members of congress have profited from the economic crash.
Not only has Forbes and every other career politician profited from the misery of so many others, but most of his campaign contributions have come from corporations who commit fraud!
If we do not send the message that we will NOT tolerate this type of behavior now – When do we send it?
If we all stand by idly and let people like Forbes keep their positions – what message does that send?
When I asked Bonnie Girard her thoughts on bills like CISPA, SOPA and the indefinite detention clause in the NDAA she told me that those bills, “make us the United States of China” and that they take away from the very “fundamentals of what it means to be an American.”
Do not underestimate the power of a single vote.
In numbers – and I know I am not the only one who believes in freedom here – we are more powerful than you can imagine.
I can’t help you if you are outside of the 4th district other than to say use some of the links I have provided to check out the voting records of your own representatives. Use the links below to find out when your primary is. Join forces and MAKE HISTORY!
Send a message to every single incumbent who has spent years profiting from the loss of others with people who are willing to fight for their communities – not their corporations.
Do some of your own research and educate yourself – before it is too late.
What about Bonnie Girard on the other Issues?
Girard is Conservative where she needs to be and Liberal where it counts.
We cannot “legislate the bedroom”
That if her students had weapons in Tiananmen Square, they may not have died.
We should protect individual liberties and freedoms.
We should protect women’s health.
We should protect Americans from overspending tax dollars.
We should invest in education.
Creating jobs is not done with tax dollars – it is done with hard work and good business sense.
She believes that using techniques like crowd funding to finance small businesses and ideas will create a greater sense of community and pride of ownership.
