I believe that most will find it helpful to understand a little more about me and my philosophy to get the most out of viewing my twitter postings at http://twtter.com/dmashak. I say that because from time to time I get public and private messages which indicate to me that the sender has misunderstood my intent with regard to a particular tweet posting. Therefore, I have written this users guide to help my followers better understand my personal Perspective of Reality and my Twitter Account Philosophy.
1st,I am not an elitists nor a snob. Nor do I subscribe to any belief that Educated Elites know better than the rest of us. If you have some need to feel superior to your fellow Average American Citizen, hit the bricks. As far as I am concerned, I am just another insect on the windshield of life.
I am going to say something to you that no politician would ever have the courage to say. Don't believe anything anybody tells you. Don't believe anything that even I tell you;... until you verify and vet for yourself using your own trusted sources and resources. Please think for yourself and do not rely on your political party to determine your position on any issue. In my opinion, unquestioning loyalty to any political party is the sign of a weak and lazy mind. You will know that you have thought critically when you can effectively explain the position in your own words to someone on the opposite side of the issue.
The vast majority of my tweets are political in nature. However, I throw in things that are of personal interest to me and of general interest to the General Public to keep things interesting and to humanize myself. I also do this to distinguish myself from the "bots" and the paid and unpaid political operatives (AstroTurf) of both major political parties. My thoughts are my own. I am more loyal to Country than I am to any political party.
I view the twitter universe as a marketplace for the free exchange of ideas. My tweets and retweets are not necessarily an endorsement. Sometimes I tweet or retweet just to provoke thought. Sometimes I make my neutrality, intent or position more clear by using hash tages like #notvetted or #foodforthought. etc.
Finally, to my friends and allies that share my perception of reality, Thank you. However, I subscribe to the philosophy of not preaching to the choir. If I want to win converts to my perception of reality, I must go where the non-believers are. So when you see folks talking in different dialects of English or different languages, please do not take offense. With that in mind, please try to be accommodating when you see some of my followers and/or people I follow using street, strange, offensive, vulgar or foul language. However, do not confuse my request for you to be tolerant of strange or offensive language for any expectation that you be tolerant of malicious attacks upon you nor language advocating or suggesting criminal acts like riots and violent revolution (before all manners and methods of peaceful revolution have been exhausted.) If any tweet of anyone offends you, please contact me by direct message. I get so many tweets, I may not see or may not perceive something as offensive.
In anticipation of potential retaliatory criticism, I repeat my position and demand of our government that English be declared the official language of the USA.
I expect everyone to be civil to each other. We all are Americans who need to rally to each other and this country's aid in this time of distress, duress and crisis.
Please join me in trying to rally and unify America against the ruling class.When you find someone who disagrees with you, constructively try to persuade them to your position. And if you cannot persuade them to your viewpoint, divert or end the conversation by reminding them of the 10 other issues you can agree upon.
Despite the Ruling Classes policy of dividing and conquering us, WE THE PEOPLE are more alike than we are different. I do not understand why the 2/3's majority in the middle of the political spectrum allow ourselves to be control by the 16% on the hardcore left and the 16% on the hardcore right.
It is far easier to be EXTREME HARD LEFT or EXTREME HARD RIGHT than it is to be CENTRIST.
Please focus on the issues that the 2/3's of us in the middle of the political spectrum can agree upon. Please
If you get in a protacted argument, please just at some point end it by say, WE WILL JUST HAVE TO AGREE TO DISAGREE.
I respectfully ask everyone to concentrate on the issues we agree upon and refrain from engaging in destructive debate on social issues that tend to divide WE THE PEOPLE. WE THE PEOPLE need to be firmly united to throw off the shackles of tyranny that have been forced upon us.
This is my GREAT AMERICAN EXPERIMENT. I am giving persons of great differences in socio-economic status and perceptions of reality the opportunity to engage in a constructive exchange of ideas. While i request tolerance of street, strange, vulgar, offensive or foul language, I respectively ask those that use such language to try respect and understand the decorum expectations of persons with different perspective of reality expectations. At the same time, if you consider this request too much of an infringement on your individuality, my preference is that you keep following, rather than withdraw from the conversation.
Each of us has a perception of reality based on the cumulative effect of all the things we experience, listen to and see each day. The Ruling Class follows the teachings of Edward Bernays in manipulating your Perception of Reality. Behind closed doors, the Ruling Class freely admits to managing the herd (WE THE PEOPLE) by manipulating our fears and appealing to our desires. Please view the following videos for for further information and confirmation of my assertions:
I believe the Ruling Class uses social issues to divide and conquer WE THE PEOPLE. I believe the Ruling Class used Edward Bernays style Propaganda and Censorship to divide and conquer we the people and distract us from their activities which are not in the best interests of WE THE PEOPLE.
Please think for yourself. Please take ownership of your perception of reality. Everything you see, hear and experience everyday impacts your own perception of reality. Take control of what you watch and hear. The major media is one of the venues the Ruling Class uses to alter your Perception of Reality to advance the RULING CLASSES goals. Be aware of subliminal advertising.
May I humbly suggest that you start getting you information from several different sources you trust. May I suggest the Internet or a Library. Once a week, turn off the radio and drive to work with your own thoughts. Or once or twice a month go to your City Council, County Board or School Board Meeting. Engage in constructive debate. Remember, any time you watch a TV Program, watch a music video, listen to a radio program and/or watch a movie you are giving the producers of that program permission to alter your Perception of Reality.
Again may I humbly suggest that if you have children, get involved with your local schools federally mandated CURRICULUM REVIEW BOARD. Your children are impressionable. The Ruling Class uses the schools to indoctrinate your children otherwise known as fundamentally altering their Perception of Reality. Do you want you children to be passive, cookie cutter sheep or do you want your children to be vibrant, self-reliant, rugged individualistic patriots? Either get involved with your child's school or Home School or band together with other parents and group home school.
Lastly be aware that the Government actively tries to demonize and discredit political dissenters.
Watch the following video for an example:
The FBI, Reverand Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Operation COINTELPRO
As I previously indicated, the Government freely engages in disinformation to manipulate public opinion.
THE FBI and other Government have active programs and strategies, many illegal, to turn public opinion against the Leaders of Political dissent. Be aware of this in taking ownership of your own perception of reality.
Though I am definitely a hard right of center fiscal conservative and a moderate right of Center Conservative on social issues, I am more loyal to my country than I am to any political Party.
In fact, I believe the two major party political system is a charade.
The two major party American Political system is similar to Professional Wrestling... The Two Party Political System is scripted and choreographed like Pro-Wresting to achieve the desired effect. Pro-Wrestling's desired effect is high drama and titillation to maintain the maximum number of fans. The desired effect of the two major political party system is to maintain the power of the RULING CLASS.
I believe there are not two major parties but one RULING CLASS... One ruling class with two heads, elephant and donkey. The Ruling Class changes the heads from time to time to give the appearance of political revolution to avoid actual violent revolution. Nevertheless, after the voting is done, the same people and powers continue to make the decisions.
Amongst the strategies of the Ruling Class, is overwhelming WE THE PEOPLE with to many issues and crises. If we do not recognize that each of us has limited time and resources and we try to pursue every issue we will all just end up tired, frustrated and overwhelmed.
I believe the following issues are the issues that the 2/3's of WE THE PEOPLE in the middle of the Political Perspective can agree upon:
1) Restore Transparency and Accountability in our Government and Judiciary
2) Cut Over Spending and Reduce the Deficit to Normal Historic Levels
PROPOSED CAUCUS RESOLUTION - REQUIRED DISPLAY ON INTERNET OF ALL MUNICIPALITY BUDGET AND ACTUAL EXPENDITURES
3) Audit and/or End or National the Federal Reserve Bank
Proof of voter fraud in the USA - from the horse's mouth
My Perspective on Racism is that I prefer to Judge People on the Content of their Character rather than the Color of their Skin, their religion, their ethnicity and/or sexual orientation.
My perspective on homosexuality is that what consenting adults do behind closed doors is none of my business.
However, I do not believe it should be in the education of children at an inappropriate age. Further, any child under the age of consent should be required to proactively ask for any such LGBT curriculum themselves or be requested by and/or consented to by the parents.
I am against gay marriage but for Civil Unions. A separate legal category of personal union different and apart from marriage should be created to resolve issues of LGBT couples such as medical privacy, inheritance and insurance. The State has a selfish interest in the procreation by heterosexual couples to produce more heterosexual offspring. Therefore, most financial benefits accruing to heterosexual couples should not accrue to LGBT couples. The reason being that the State has always given financial incentives for procreation within the traditional marriage. This is not prejudice, this is just simple strategically logical biological fact. I think my position represents a workable solution for both sides of this issue.
As a reminder to all, in a Constitutionally Limited Representative Republic, inalienable rights cannot be taken away by a vote of the majority.
All of that having been said, I respectfully ask both minorities and the LGBT Community to not allow the tyrannical ruling class to use your angst to divide and conquer WE THE PEOPLE. Please join me and WE THE PEOPLE by giving priority to the issues required to save our country from the brink of collapse. I believe the 5 issues I have suggested reflect an agenda that we all can support.
I respectfully ask the minorities not to engage in "race baiting". I respectfully ask people of the homosexual community to not be single issue voters.
And minorities and the LGBT Community responds by asking me "Why should we consent to my request?" Despite its problems, America is still the best country on this planet for personal liberty and economic opportunity. Upon the collapse of the USA, do you want to risk another political reality that may not be as open to your racial heritage or sexual orientation as the America?
Consider the other benefits of economic prosperity... people happy with their economic situation are far more accepting of differences than people under duress. When people are under stress that they do not have control of their frustration is often displaced to persons unrelated to the stress. It is called aggression transference. Unfortunately, though it is irrational, it is often human nature to transfer this aggression to people perceived as being different from us. Ergo, it is in all of our best interests to bring the USA back from the brink of collapse and restore her to its position as the undisputed economic, cultural, just and military leader of the world.
And therefore, I would respectfully ask everyone to concentrate on the issues we agree upon and refrain from engaging in destructive debate on social issues that tend to divide WE THE PEOPLE. WE THE PEOPLE need to be firmly united to throw off the shackles of tyranny that have been forced upon us.
Finally, I have voted Republican and/or Conservative for the past almost 20 years. Before that, I was a Democrat. There is a saying that if you are not a liberal before you are 25 you don't have a heart and if you are not conservative after you turn 30, you don't have a brain. I stopped being a Democrat when i experienced corruption and betrayal at the hands of the Democrats. If the Republicans kept their Republican principals, I would still be firmly Republican. However, the Republicans have not been acting very Republican Lately.
I was actively involved with the #TEAParty Movement. However, the National TEA Party Movement groups have been usurped by the Republicans. Persons without unquestioning loyalty to the GOP have been purged or otherwise forced out. The liberal version of the #TEAParty Movement is called the #CoffeeParty. The #CoffeeParty has suffered a similar fate as the National #TEAPARTY groups in that they wanted to reform the Democratic party but they have been infiltrated and usurped by the #Progressives
In the near future, I may try to start a new, true grassroots political activism group which appeals to the 2/3's of WE THE PEOPLE that fall in the middle of the political spectrum. Until then, I would suggest that those of you interested in reforming your respective major political party join only local tea party or coffee party groups that you can vet personally and assure yourselves that they are not ran or controlled by political operatives of either the Republicans or Democrats.
Lest there be any misunderstanding, my official position is that Obama, and any other Educated Elitist bastard who thinks they know better than the average American citizen, must not be elected or reelected in any future election.
Finally, I write with the same intent as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own "Common Sense" http://amzn.to/kbRuar
Those were my thoughts:
