“These are the times that try men’s souls” ~ Thomas Paine (see: here)
If you do a little research, and you get behind the talking points of the mainstream media, you will discover that these so-called Facebook/Twitter “revolutions” are anything but spontaneous. In fact, if you attempt, as I have been doing, to start a TRUE grassroots movement for peace, justice, and truth, it’s actually VERY HARD to do.
I have been at this now since June 2011, and it’s not caught on yet, but we still have time to get the ball rolling on this.
I don’t have the money and power that, say, the Occupy Movement and the Arab Spring has; nor do I endorse the financial backers of these pro-Israel “revolutionary” movements. On the contrary, these financiers, governments, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are whom I would consider my – and a free American Peoples’ – enemies.
I was as excited as most were when the Arab Spring broke out, over a year ago, now, especially by the Egyptian Revolution. Like many, I thought the Egyptian peoples had finally had enough, and were toppling their corrupt government. I was working at the time, as I have been for the past 35 years, until I quit last July in order to become a Catholic Worker and began working full time for peace and social justice. And it takes a lot of time – full time – to discover what’s been going on, especially lately, but for many, many years now. Plus one has to be knowledgeable enough to know what to look for and where one might find it, which isn’t easy, for an amateur, like me, to do.
Some people, like Kevin Zeese, the organizer of October 2011 Stop The Machine! Create a New World!, or, as it’s also known as: Occupy Washington DC, since Occupy DC and Occupy K Street began, last October (and there’s a long story behind that), some people, like Kevin, have been full time peace and justice advocates, in the Washington area, for the past 30 years. Kevin and I are about the same age but we took very different paths in life. Kevin has lived in the DC area for quite some time, because he went to school and then work in the nonprofit peace, justice, and Washington NGO business, just as many of my friends from high school went to work for the federal government, in some capacity, because it was where we lived, because our parents worked, in some capacity, for the federal government, just as most people end up living and working in the same area they were born and grew up. I am from the DC area but I became a blue collar worker, intentionally, because I did not want to have anything to do with Washington, which, even as a young teenager, I knew to be the problem, not the solution, for America, and I had no desire to work for the federal government in DC. I wanted to be a normal, hard working American who lived outside the Beltway, as most Americans do.
I had gotten as far away as I could from the DC area by the time I was 17, having enlisted in the US Army and having been fortunate enough to have been stationed in Hawaii, which truly is the paradise you might imagine it to be, if you’ve not been there to experience it for yourself. And, until I moved back to the area recently, I’ve pretty much been aways from Washington for my entire life.
Anyways, like I said, I’m trying to get this TRUE grassroots Facebook/Twitter Revolution off the ground, and we have some time, but not much, so please join and support us, if you can, because our goal is to attain peace, justice, and truth, for America.
Please do whatever you can to spread the word about this movement, which is called Summer of Justice – 2013 – DC, if you agree with us.
This is a movement of the American people to bring the political Left and the political Right in America together by finding common ground in our traditional American legal sociopolitical concept of natural law, which is found in the Declaration of Independence and in the writings of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr, who founded his social justice movement upon the principles of natural law and who used America’s natural law foundations, which are found in the Declaration of Independence, as a promissory note that America could be held to in order to further the causes of social justice and peace.
Americans on both the Left and the Right SHOULD be able to AGREE with BOTH the Founders AND Dr King on this issue.
In my thinking, only a fool would disagree with them on this issue.
Please follow the links below, and please join us as we organize a temporary, replacement civilian government that can gain the confidence of the American people of both the Left and the Right so that we may set our nation upon a proper course of justice, peace, dignity, and equality for all peoples under God and natural law, which is our American tradition.
If you don’t like God, or Jesus, then please THINK about this. I would suggest you think about this because the vast majority of Americans DO believe in God and in Jesus, so please at least be smart enough to know that, even if you DO think it’s all made-up fairy tales, because so many Americans DO believe in God, THIS PLAN WILL WORK! Be smart, and be pragmatic, like Thomas Paine once was. He wasn’t a big believer in organized religion either, but he knew the American Revolution would NEVER work unless he couched his writings in religious language. Smart guy!
I happen to believe in God, and I think it’s foolish not to, but people have a right to believe what they want in that regard. The minority must always be protected from the majority, and not the other way around.
“Revolutions are often seen as spontaneous,” says Ivan Marovic, a former CANVAS trainer. “It looks like people just went into the street. But it’s the result of months or years of preparation” (see: here)
In fact, one particular individual, Sheldon Adelson, has been funding BOTH the Arab Spring, which the Occupy Movement supports, AND Newt Gingrich! See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZTwp7ThAXI; and see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCdIBwODM18 Think about THAT for a minute.

“THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.” ~ Thomas Paine The Crisis
