Feet in the Dirt

Have you put your feet in the dirt lately? Did you know that the earth carries a negative charge, and that you may actually feel better if you take five or ten minutes to stand barefoot in the dirt (or even in the grass)? Some people call this “grounding”, and for myself, has been a wonderful way to feel better after staring at a computer screen, or being on a cell phone, all day. Most objects on the ground carry a positive charge, and so by actually physically connecting with the earth, you can “stay balanced” electrically (we are energy).

 

The earth, and us as human beings, have an amazing connection. Just like we depend upon the earth (and universe) for energy to power up our computer and phones, we also rely on the earth to feed ourselves, and to of course, to have a clean water supply. There are many people in our country, who do not have the time to go and take their shoes off to stand in the dirt – there are arguably people who have never touched the earth’s surface with their bare feet – and it is my hypothesis that this creates people who are out of touch with the planet – literally and figuratively.

 

Until to put your feet in the dirt, or take your shoes off and put your feet in a stream or creek – you may not realize just how powerful the phenomena is. It is my goal to get as many people as possible taking their shoes off and taking 10 minutes to stand in the dirt. If you can actually get out on a trail, out of the city, that is even better. If you can put your hands in the dirt too, and plant something or grow something to eat – that is the next step to connecting to your power source – agriculture. But just a little bit helps – I bet you will see positive health benefits.

 

To A Peaceful, Prosperous, and Rebellious 2013

Each of us makes a difference. Each of us, even in our own little world of stocking shelves, serving food, driving trucks, delivering goods, tapping on the keyboard, and talking to friends and family – each action that we take is profound.

 

The government is made up of people – human beings – that can be changed (or manipulated for that matter). We – you and I – are the people that can make our government exist of people who cherish liberty, our natural rights, our right to protect ourselves, our right to express ourselves freely.

 

We do this by our own little interactions – in our community, in our town or city, and in our County. We can participate in State and national politics – but our real power is with our small circle of 10 or 20, who we can trust, who we can talk to, and who we can build our armies with.

 

To a very rebellious 2013 – let us rebel against the evil powers that seek to destroy, and instead – cherish, promote, and empower the creative forces that embrace peace and prosperity. Let us rebel against collective rights, like political parties, who have their own agenda. Let us rebel against the manipulative monetary system that erodes the wealth and property of all people. Let us rebel against the tyranny that seeks to destroy our light, as free and loving people.

 

Rebel with me, and let’s use the amazing power that we have – for good.

 

In Liberty,

 

Tisha

Merry Christmas – Jesus as Our Libertarian Friend

There are probably few better role models than that of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter what religion or spirituality encompasses your framework and world-view, looking at Jesus Christ as a person, based off of a well-known book called The Bible, shows that he is just the type of guy that many households could use right now – as a friend, a companion, a confidant, and a freedom-fighter.

 

As people who cherish liberty and our natural rights to do things like eat the food we want, maintain control over our property (including our body), and defend and protect ourselves and our loved ones from harm – we embrace individual rights. We embrace taking responsibility for ourselves. As Michael Badnarik eloquently points out in his lectures and Constitution classes, he says “I am King” – and that each of us, as individuals are Kings. We bow to no one. We are responsible for ourselves and cherish ourselves as individuals. This is unique to most forms of governments in the world – our country is still very free.

 

In Luke 17:21, Jesus is talking about where exactly the Kingdom of God is, and says that it is nether “here” nor “there”, “because the kingdom of God is within you” (New International Version Bible, 1984). Stop looking around – God is inside of us, and we are the Kings of our lives. And, as Badnarik would say, “It is good to be King”.

 

Jesus is the kind of friend that would not cast judgment on a person – he ate and drank with thieves (thieves at that time were the tax-collectors) and prostitutes, he was nice to everyone – he loved people where they were at. Like most of us who cherish liberty, we oftentimes find ourselves preaching to others, but we respect people’s individual choices and would never use force to change the behavior of another. Love versus force – a big gap in how to encourage behavior amongst our fellow men. I opt for using love to encourage behavior – not force.

 

Religions use “sin” as a word to cast judgment and prove “wrongness”. In Greek, “sin” literally means to “miss the mark”. And oh, how so many of us do miss that mark. Morality is subjective – there will be no agreement amongst humankind about right or wrong – but we can all think of ways that we “miss the mark”. In America, that mark is remembering that we are powerful individuals, and that our natural rights must be intact for us to not be slaves.

 

Jesus turned over the tables of the “money-changers” and was a rabble-rousing truth-seeker that caused problems for “the King”. Those money-changers (like the Federal Reserve today) and thieves (like the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)) were called out by Jesus – for their robbery of the people. They were eroding the wealth and property of the people, and Jesus had enough of it. He did not lay down, he did not shut up, he spoke out and eventually his life was taken for it.

 

There is no better way to celebrate this holiday (again, regardless of what you believe in as “God”) than to celebrate the rabble-rouser whose birth so many celebrate. So, this Christmas, I wish to you a merry time with friends, family, pets, etc. in celebration of the birth of a man who made enemies of those who would keep us on our knees.

Legislation Doesn’t Really “Help” Us

Please unplug from the matrix – your representatives in Congress don’t necessarily know what they are doing and can’t necessarily help you.  Please let me illustrate.

Right now, in the 112th Session of Congress – there are:

3,402 Bills in the Senate
6,140 Bills in the House
523 Resolutions in the Senate
734 Resolutions in the House
51 Concurrent Resolutions in the Senate
133 Concurrent Resolutions in the House
47 Joint Resolutions in the Senate
114 Joint Resolutions in the House

Assuming that each of these pieces of legislation (that become law – which affects the justice of our Constitutional Republic, and the individual rights of the sovereign State citizens within the united States of America) is 10 pages long – that would equate to a total of 111,440 (11,144 x 10) pages of text that our representatives must read in order to know the laws and resolutions (not to mention treaties, which are not mentioned here) being proposed and enacted that affect our individual rights, sovereignty, and ability to create wealth and protect our property rights.

Rewind – only a small percentage of bills are ever passed through designated committees, and an even smaller amount of bills are passed by the House, and an even smaller number of bills are passed by the Senate.  So why are our representatives spending so much time on writing bills that don’t pass?  Well, it is to tell you about what they are doing – which is in effect – nothing.  They are doing nothing more than creating a façade about what they say they support – it comes down to the fact that very little of this ever helps any of us as individuals, small business owners, and anyone who is trying to actually “survive” and “make a living”.

It is a lie – and we must unplug from it.  There is absolutely no piece of legislation that will help you or a ‘special interest’ that you have, for that matter.  The only thing that can help us is being able to act in freedom and move regulatory functions that are inefficient at the federal level, down to the States and even into the Counties of those States where we are closer to our representation.  This is where we can hold our elected officials accountable, and not support this atrocious waste of time and taxpayer money creating hundreds of thousands of pages of documents that do nothing to get us out of our economic recession.  We have the power – we find it by unplugging from this matrix.

Making Enemies of People Who Keep Us On Our Knees

What is your greatest fear? For me, after a lifetime of struggling with my own fears and worries, I am working on letting go of fear as much as I can. Because fear stops me from accomplishing things that I want to accomplish.

After so many fights, in my own mind – of being scared of death, scared of war, scared of terrorists, scared of God – I let go of my fears. I decided that I would spend my time loving my walk on earth, versus being terrified of all of the things that could go wrong while I am here.

Fear is the basis for most of our legislation, most of our laws, most of our communications from the media. Fear sells – it is arguably the most powerful human emotion – it is built in our DNA – to react to situations that are dangerous. We can’t change that. What we can change, if we want to create a better and more peaceful life for ourselves, our family, and our community – is how much we allow fear to control our actions. And that is something that can only be done on the individual level.

All of our great teachers and leaders have let go of fear to do something great. You may not like all of these people, and there are certainly character flaws in them (and us) that could be argued with no conclusion. We all have different likes and beliefs and don’t agree on everything. But it is true that these people were not afraid of death, and not afraid of speaking out against the people who keep us on our knees.

This year, for many people, the election is not about Right versus Left, Conservative versus Liberal, Republican versus Democrat. For many people, this election is about attempting to find people who are not corrupt, people who want to be public servants, people who do not want to make a career our of “politics”, people who will represent all of their constituency, and not just the people who belong to a particular party. These two sides pull us back and forth – stating the fears we should have if “the other party person” gets elected.

The truth is – these politicians from both “sides” are mostly all the same – they mostly all find ways to keep us on our knees. They mostly all work on legislation that erodes the rights of the individual, and they mostly all stay silent about the forces that have destroyed our economy – the erosion of the value of the dollar, the Federal Reserve System (inflation), and the corruption of the banking and financial industries that are in cahoots with representatives from the government.

If there is one thing that will save us and preserve the liberties that are unique to our country (although they are quickly being whittled away) – it will be the separation from acting in fear and instead acting out of love. Our enemies cannot control our outcome when we detach from their fear-based agendas. You and I are powerful people, and if we understand this and believe it – we can work together to make sure we ensure health, prosperity, and safety for our kids and grandkids. So what is your greatest fear? Can you let go – and work with me to find solutions?

 

Disconnect

I have often said that our country has one big social problem. And I defer to that when debating because it is spiritual in nature – why are we on the planet, who do we answer to, why do we have values, and what is the all for?

For myself, as a sovereign individual seeking liberty so that I can pursue happiness, I think the whole point is to love, to create, and to take the high road while learning important life lessons. I do not think that fear creates anything, I think that fear is the opposite of love, and I think that it is impossible to walk on the high road when you are afraid. And I think that fear is what so many people, organizations, and factions of government use to get their various agendas through.

Example 1 – Peak Oil, Global Warming, and Fossil Fuels

I envision our wonderful and beautiful planet as a living and breathing entity (because it is). As humans, we have had the opportunity to live on and populate the earth for some time. As of late, it can be argued that we are doing some awful things to the earth – and we are. But that shouldn’t make us afraid to use the earth’s resources responsibly, that is what these resources are there for. The earth regenerates – much like we as humans re-generate billions of cells on a daily basis. To say that resources are finite and that we should be fearful, is a bit misleading – it may take many years to reproduce these resources (minerals, petroleum) or to see these resources become clean again (water), but the earth provides, and the resiliency of nature is beyond our human comprehension. We should not be afraid of using our resources – what we should do is have local oversight over resources and allow for regulations to be made at a State and local level (much better than a federal or international level where it is difficult for agencies to be accountable and transparent). When public lands are leased for responsible use of resources, citizens in these counties and States should be the direct beneficiaries of the monetary gain (instead of governments). If citizens in the county benefit from responsible resource development, they will be much more apt to participate in the discussion concerning development and regulation.

 

Example 2 – Abortion

There is a very real and serious problem with abortion in our own country and around the world. It is nothing short of tragic, as the ability to conceive a child and to give life is a miracle and divine. Pro-life groups advocate making abortion illegal, and the problem is that laws do not change human behavior – only people making conscious choices affect human behavior. Causes of this epidemic include poverty, a welfare state with no repercussions for personal choices and individual responsibility, the erosion of the family unit (made possible by the first two causes), and a complete disconnect from our own human bodies. As a woman, I am incredibly in tune to my body, however, many are not. And this disconnect feeds the disease and the actions of people – who pollute their body and who find it easy to abort a living and breathing being from their very womb. No federal or state law will truly fix this problem. The only way to solve this is by creating positive environments for the developing young woman where she is healthy, pays attention to the divinity of her female form, and makes conscious decisions about what to put in or take out of her body. It is the cultivation of love within a human, that makes them change their moral behavior. No law, no angry vitriolic attacks, no heavy hand of government will ever cure the pain and fear that allows for the violent act of abortion to take place. Individuals acting in their communities, in their churches can foster the loving environments necessary to curb this behavior.

 

We are so disconnected from our planet and from each other. Right and left, Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, all pick out issues to violently defend and profess – using fear and using hate. This disconnect from responsible and conscious decisions made with love; and the disconnect from having faith in each other and this planet, is our one big moral problem that affects every issue that we debate.

 

We have a chance to drop the caustic rhetoric and work together to love more, benefit our local communities more, and create a healthy economy and environment to improve our quality of life. And that is a win-win-win for all of us.

STRATEGIC IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR EMPOWERING LOCAL PARTNERS TO PREVENT VIOLENT EXTREMISM IN THE UNITED STATES

What defines an extremist?  What defines extremism?

“As a government, we are working to prevent all types of extremism that leads to violence, regardless of who inspires it. At the same time, countering al-Qa’ida’s violent ideology is onepart of our comprehensive strategy to defeat al-Qa’ida. Over the past 2½ years, more key al-Qa’ida leaders—including Usama bin Laden—have been eliminated in rapid succession than at any time since the September 11 attacks. We have strengthened homeland security and improved information sharing. Thanks to coordinated intelligence and law enforcement, numerous terrorist plots have been thwarted, saving many American lives.” —President Barack Obama, August 2011

How is it possible to prevent extremism that leads to violence – regardless of who inspires it?  What must be done?  How do you know who to stop and when?  This most recent Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) out of Washington, D.C. leaves those definitions pretty open.

This is about definitions and who is defining them.  Most of us would agree that “extremists” who go and kill others (including themselves) are dangerous.  What about people who are extreme in their rhetoric but would never hurt anyone?  Freedom of speech allows us to speak up and out as long as we are not violating anyone else’s right to life and liberty. What if those people who speak up are called an extremist?  Are the Occupy Wall Street crowds engaging in extremism?  Are the Tea Party crowds engaging in extremism?  Are Ron Paul followers and supporters engaging in extremism?  Isn’t it up to the person to decide whether or not these people will engage in violence?  Before a crime is committed – who has the power to actually know what people are going to do?  Law enforcement and our government are not God and do not know everything.  Why are they the ones to decide who is being extreme and whether or not those people may use violence BEFORE IT HAS EVEN HAPPENED?  Isn’t that dangerous to our freedom to express ourselves?

I take offense to this and these definition because I myself have been called a “radical” and an “extremist” because I really truly believe in the Constitution of the United States being the control mechanism to keep our government in check.  I have also been called these names because I have given up everything to be able to try and speak to others about it.  I have even been called this when I say that I believe in Jesus Christ, as he walked and taught us while on this earth.  And if someone tried to kill me for any of these things, I would fight back.  Does that fit their definition of extremism?  Am I now the enemy?

These are questions you should ask yourself.  Even if YOU don’t think you are doing anything – what if someone who didn’t like you decided that you are?  What if they then tell local law enforcement what a dangerous and extreme person you are?  Are you now the enemy?

Just reminding you that we have more freedom right now than we may ever have again, and you better use it.

To Stop Acting in Fear

Many civilizations have acted in fear and many people in positions of power have used fear to get what they want.

The very proposition that fear should be a part of making a decision is against human nature.  We, as humans, are not born with any sense of fear, our sense of fear is understood as we grow, mature, and learn.

What do decisions made in fear do?  I would argue that they cause us to make irrational decisions – against what is best for our own well-being as well as society as a whole.  Just imagine, if you weren’t scared of anything – what would you do?

I don’t want to be scared of our money supply.  I don’t want to be scared that I won’t have health care, social security, a retirement, a job, a life.  I don’t want to act in fear and I don’t want people in positions of power, whether corporations, insurance agencies, or our own federal government, to try to scare me into having them make decisions for me.  Acting in fear creates bad decisions.  If I was not fearful of my life in 20-30 years, and if I knew I had a sound money supply to work with, then anyone at any level “taking care of me” would seem obtuse.  It was not a hundred years ago that we were not too far from being relatively self-reliant souls and about 200 years ago that fought off an empire that was attempting to keep people in serfdom via their money supply and taxes.  So why should I be so scared now?

To the great people of this great country, we should not act in fear.  I know there are plenty of people who have faith, who have love, who have hope, who can say that they believe in the betterment of mankind – starting with themselves, their families, and their communities.  We can do this by not acting in fear.  Do not be afraid of the problems that we face – each of us, as individuals and each of us united with our fellow statesmen – have the power to create our destiny.  We will not be afraid and we will find solutions that work, that create peace and prosperity for generations to come.

Engaging in the Arms Trade

As a publisher and a journalist, I have decided it is time to engage in the arms trade.  Being in media is just not lucrative enough for me – I want to do more, to make more.

So, as of today, with the riots taking place in Iran, the questions being raised in Egypt, and the countless other actions being taken today by people around the world who want to be free and prosperous – I will engage in the arms trade, as this truly is the most lucrative way to make change.

To the people who possess different belief systems than me but share in the desire for freedom and justice – I extend my arm.  To the people who believe in a different God than me but believe in peace – I extend my arm.  To the people who believe in a different flag, whose gait traverses different terrain, but who loves the earth and environment as I do  – I extend my arm.

Imagine the United States not being the police of the world but instead being a leader in a different kind of arms trade – the trade of knowledge and peace.  Sure, it is idealistic, but it could happen.  When soldiers teach people how to grow food, start a business, run a school – those are positive seeds of productivity, prosperity, and peace.  That is the real arms trade – extending one’s service and hand out in the name of progress.

This is not just some foo-foo rambling, this is an economic proposal as well.  The more we “get along” and work together, the better off we become because we can create more prosperity.  Peace is good for business.

I hope that more people like myself become involved with these arms dealings and the connections we can gain with such a trade in other nations.  Together, we can build (instead of tear down with guns and ammo) a better country and world for the next generation.
