I recently found this website after feelings of massive frustration over my lack of ability to connect with the established political system. This morning I awoke with a feeling of sadness. I was reflecting on all the young people I have seen working in Chinese factories in indentured servitude. I was also reflecting on the abandoned manufacturing buildings in Detroit and the amount of homeless living in my community here in Northern California. At once I realized that the…Read more →
Washingtons farwell address the part he talked about foreign relations and the dangers of permanent alliances between the United States and foreign nations. Washington goes on to urge the American people to take advantage of their isolated position in the world.

In the months ahead, I plan to gradually post many ideas intended to help Our Nation become "More" and "Better". I would like to share a few of my general beliefs and notions and then, in the next blog, start defining the terms I use in my sharings.
