Who Am I?


I’m sure many clan members and many other people besides, including members of my own family, find me somewhat of a strange entity and possibly a touch nutty. I don’t watch television, except for a couple of documentary programs, I think television is a propganda machine that feeds false information to the masses. I believe television teaches people what to think, not how to think. I don’t use credit cards, I am very outspoken and have strong views on politics, the war on terror, fractional reserve banking and some aspects of many religions and I can be highly opinionated. In regards to the book I have placed on the projects page (still a rough draft and as yet unfinished) and in regards to the bible, I must stress that my views do not extend to Christianity itself nor to the New Testament. It is not my desire to attack the religious beliefs contained in the Bible and the work should not be interpreted in that way. My questions relate wholly to the Old Testament and are viewed in a historical context.
   In regards to my political views, I must also stress that it is not nor has it ever been my desire to appear anti-American or anti western because I am most definitely not. I am however, very anti-corporatism and very anti-fascism and in the words of WW2 dictator, Benito Mussolini: “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism, because it is the merger of corporate and state power”. This is exactly what we are witnessing now on a global scale and it spells a very frightening and dangerous scenario if the situation is ignored and such corporate power is allowed to continue.
   I am very pro American which is one of the things that makes me as outspoken as I am, but I recognize the reality that the thing that makes the US great is not the Nation itself, it is the American Constitution and the American people, some of whom I count as my dear friends. As a responsible citizen of the world I cannot idly stand by and watch the only true beacon of freedom in the world and the freedoms of my friends be extinguished due to the actions of a corporate controlled administration and an irresponsible president who committed electoral fraud to gain office, and whose family has long standing ties to some very sinister people. And I am utterly appalled by the media’s failure to address these issues. People would do well to remember the words spoken by former US President Thomas Jefferson: “That we are to stand by a president whether he is right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, it is morally treasonable to the American People.”  And of former US President Ronald Regan who stated: “It takes only one generation for a Nation to lose its freedom”
   What happens in America is echoed strongly in Australia and if America falls from within, then so will my country fall, and again, all the signs are there, and now far too many to be ignored. Due to 911, the so called “War on Terror” and laws that have been passed by the current administrations, presently, America, Australia, and Britain are politically in the position of Germany in 1937 whose people were also in denial. It is crucial for the entire world that history be remembered and this situation is taken in hand, and for that reason I am, and will continue to be, outspoken about such issues in the name of what is right, regardless of the consequences, and to offer one more quote that I believe can be adapted to fit almost every situation in daily life, this time from Martin Luther King:
   "The Ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy... Cowardice asks the question – Is it safe? Expedience asks the question – Is it Politic? Vanity asks the question – Is it popular? But Conscience asks the question  –  Is it right?
   And there comes a time when a man must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is RIGHT!”

I agree with a lot of what you have to say....I am just not sure which of the last two presidents you are talking about....Both are in bed with big business and both's families or themselves have been aligned with some unsavory characters.
