Independence Day, Everyday

240 years ago, our founders changed the way peoples looked at and interacted with their governments. By declaring that “All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursiut of Happiness.” Never before had a government been founded upon such principles. No government had ever admitted its own need for change. The brilliance of our founders is that they set up a government that could be bettered and perfected. Our Constitution has been amended twenty-seven times! In which we reaffirmed that all mankind is created equal, regardless race or gender, and their freedoms are not dispensation of government. 

But relating to the founders today, being able to truly appreciate the gravity of our freedom seems distant to grasp. Let’s meditate on the things, 240 years later, that still set us apart from many places in the world! 

In many parts of Asia and Africa, many young girls around the world are denied the basic right to pursue an education.

In America, while we may not like the out comes, our more recent elections (save 1960, 1968, and 2000) have gone unquestioned and undisputed. The same cannot be said for Austira, its Constitutional Court has ordered a new Presidential Election beheld because of voter fraud, “77,926 of the 4.5 million votes cast were affected by improprieties in how mail-in ballots were processed.” 

  • Equal Rights

While this conversation continues today about the treatment and employment practices concerning African-Americans, Women, and the LGBT community, America is still by far the most progressive (and humane) country on these issues. 

Everyday, right here in America, we get to decide our future and how we wish to pursue our American Dream and pursue our happiness because we have education for all, because we have fair elections, and we, generally speaking, have made strides to ensure the protections of our inalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator. And while America is far from perfect, we can continue to perfect it. That is what makes having an engaged and informed citizenry so important to the endurance of this country. That is what makes your voice so important. One vote won’t change an election, but 300 Million informed votes, cannot only transform America, but effectively, the world. 

“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

When was the last time you picked up the phone to talk to a family member about this upcoming election? And not just the presidential election; the school board, city council, state legislature, courts, congress? Each one, believe it or not, is equally important and affects our lives in such minute, and not so minute, ways that greater investment and involvement would truly transform our country. 

So get out there, get in formed, and inform your friends and family; then make them do the same!

Happy Independence Day! 

Why I support Dr. Carson for President

The Presidential Election of 2016 is close and the Presidential Primaries are even closer. As a nation, a myriad of problems face our future generations: the debt, the stability of society, the integrity of our military, regaining the trust of our nation’s allies, placing fear back into the hearts of our adversaries, and eradicating Racial Islamic Terrorism. 

Choosing the right candidate will be the responsibility of every dutiful, engaged, and patriotic American. I’ve made my choice. I believe that not only can Dr. Benjamin Carson secure the Republican Nomination, but the Presidency as well.

I’d like to ask you, the reader, some questions:

Do you trust politicians?

(Naturally, no)

Do you trust your doctor?

(Sure)

What’s the difference between a lawyer and a doctor?

A lawyer’s primary goal is winning over the jury, even if their client murderd a dozen women and children in cold blood. 

A doctor, brain surgeon in Dr. Carson’s case, is given a situation in which the primary objective is solving the problem. Saving the patient. Any monetary gain or social acclaim is merely a bonus for saving a life. 

Dr. Carson has been a servant to his fellow man in one of the most remarkable capacities. 

A President is just as much a moral leader as he or she is a military leader. During the 1970’s, the American people were told they were in a malaise—our best years were behind us. The Generation that stormed the beaches of Normandy and revived the hope of freedom for free people all around the world were to believe they could not over come a “crisis of confidence.”

And along came a former movie star from the West. A poor boy from Dixon, Illinois who rose above the strife of the Great Depression as a sports caster. 

Today, a former neurosurgeon from the ruins of Detriot, Michigan who, in a single parent household, took charge of his education and overcame the certainty of poverty to become the utmost authority on pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. 

We need more than just experience in the Oval Office, General Washington did not spend his whole career in the House of Burgesses nor did Abraham Lincoln in Congress. Life experience matters. Life experience builds character. This White House desperately needs a man or woman with character. We need a President who say what he means and means what he says. 

That is why we now have a Syrian refuge crisis on our hands. 

Dr. Carson has a wealth of life experience that has made him a levelheaded, calm, clear, reserved, and precise leader. As a surgeon, every decision he makes on the operating table is imperative to the success of the operation. The same holds true to executive work. When it comes time for military action, Dr. Carson will have the most experienced voices in Defense, Security, and Intelligence to brief him and allow him to make a well thought out decision. If there’s anyone who can process information and act on an educated understanding of a subject it’s Dr. Ben Carson. 

The Case for America

We are told that our country is too strong. We are told that our freedoms are indispensable and subjective to the whims of the loud minority. We tell ourselves that this is the way it is. That’s it. Theres no way to turn back the clocks and undo the wrongs. The mistakes.

We forget we are a Representative Democracy. We forget that if we are educated and proactive in the well being of our nation, that we can bring about meaningful change.

I’m one of the few teenagers who gave their volunteer time to state and local political campaigns. 256 volunteer hours confirmed and logged, probably leaving out a few minutes here and there.

Why did I spend my summer going door to door, talking to voters, hearing what the people had to say, getting out the vote, and getting them the tools they needed to participate in our democracy?

Although it wasn’t as exciting as it seems on paper, I gave my time and efforts to this cause of representative democracy because I was raised with a deep sense of pride in my country and engrained with a deeper sense of civic duty from my father and his father, both having served respectively in the Air Force and Navy.

So, I’ve got a stake in the game. In politics. It hits me at home because my father has stage four synovial sarcoma that developed in his foot and then metastasized into his lung. Furthermore, he goes to the VA and Moffit to receive medical treatments.

Floridan Governor Rick Scott is a champion of Cancer Research and honors our Veterans who served our nation and deserve utmost thanks and gratitude from those of us who have not served our countrymen in such a capacity.

When we vote, it must not be based on this week’s fad, but based upon our goals for the next ten years. We don’t save money in order to spend it away tomorrow. We save today for our needs next week; next month; next year.

It is with such diligence and stewardship that our countrymen should vote and participate. For it is often said, “Those who chose not to vote, choose not to have a voice.” No words could be more true.

In the age of partisan media, if you can say there wasn’t partisan before now – In the culture of partisan media that has endured as long as the republic itself, we are told that our only choice is simple. Left or Right.

Friends, I would suggest too, like then actor Ronald Reagan in 1964, we we have a different choice. Up or down. Liberty or death. Economic freedom or slavery to the welfare state. It’s that simple.

We can find the remedies to our social problems without the hand of big government and we can do it even more effectively. We need to be our own brother’s keeper, like the members of my family, my church, and my community have been to my father and our family. 

Our country is waiting—no, thirsting for a revival but we must act on this now. We must open up our hearts and look to our fellow countrymen instead of big government.

I believe in America and I believe in the resilience of her people. When we set our minds to great causes there’s simply no stopping us because there is no cause greater than our cause: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

A Lost Dream?

On August 28th, it is the 50th Anniversary of MLK Jr’s “I have a Dream” Speech. This is such a momentous occasion. I’d say its almost as famous and as well known as Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

What’s the Dream?

Lets refresh ourselves with the enlightening words of Dr. King.

“I have a dream that little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

He dreamed that there would be an equal playing field for all people of color.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.”

Not that we’d have a “War on Poverty” that would amount in Billions in Government Aid but give African Americans the opportunities to be prosperous. What we should seek is an equality in opportunity, NOT in result. It’s simply not how liberty works.

Define these “Opprotunites”

Education.

Remember George Wallace?

“Segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever!”
~George Wallace

During this time schools where segregated by race. And we know the “Black or Colored” Schools were not equal next to their racial counterparts.

The comparative quality of education among rich and poor districts is still often the subject of dispute. While middle class African-American children have made good progress; poor minorities have struggled. With school systems based on property taxes, there are wide disparities in funding between wealthy suburbs or districts, and often poor, inner-city areas or small towns. “De facto segregation” has been difficult to overcome as residential neighborhoods have remained more segregated than workplaces or public facilities.

Now in this age of technology, every American, white or black, can obtain great amounts of knowledge. There is a world of knowledge in the palm of your hands. Never more in our country’s history has there been such an equal playing field of knowledge to build on and get ahead.

So what’s the hold up.

Our politically correct society, we have held back the wheels of progress by not looking any further than our brothers’ skin color… Depending which side of the political spectrum you’re on.

The Content of Character?

Who’s got more character?

Jay-Z?

“Uh, yo don’t get mad at me
I don’t love ’em I f**k ’em
I don’t chase ’em I duck ’em
I replace ’em with another one
You had to see she keep calling me BIG
And my name is Jay-Z
She be all on my d**k
Gradually I’m taking over your b***h
Coming over your s**t”
– Song “Is that yo b***h?

Or Congressman Tim Scott?

“I just dove into the Scriptures and started memorizing different scriptures and started becoming as much as possible a part of the scripture. I wanted it to be grafted into my heart.”

President Obama “weighs in”

“Every time I talk to Jay-Z, who is a brilliant talent and a good guy, I enjoy how he thinks,”
says Obama
Rolling Stones 2008

“Nuff Said”

We have a long way to go for Dr. King’s Dream to become a reality.
But it’s gotta start in our hearts. We’ve got to forgive the past and look forward to a bright future full of opportunities and prosperity, but were holding ourselves back when we discuss race relations in America like Birmingham happened yesterday. It starts today. Let it begin with you and me.
