There is much that has been forgotten about the birth of this special and great nation called the United States
of America. As we look at today’s political arena with the questionable candidates, we wonder how and why we have strayed so far away from the original principles and intentions of its birth. Who among these candidates including Federal, State and local would pledge their lives and fortunes for the good of the nation. One way to clean up politics would be the necessity to sign a pledge similar to what the founders signed. When they signed, they knew death by hanging was a distinct possibility if the cause was lost.
Not today. Most of those who run for office look for the personal power that comes from winning. Certainly the $400,000 salary for President is a drop compared to speaking fees, top lobbying jobs, consulting fees and influence gained by becoming President, Governor or even a candidate in the running. Certainly candidates Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump have helped their own personal brand by commanding higher speaking fees, more book sales and board of director appointments. Getting elected to office or running in the correct campaigns is the gateway to lucrative contracts and appointments. No wonder there is so much distrust of those in the public arena. It seems we are easily conned and become complacent about it all—except for rants on Facebook or comments on posts. We are angry about it all.
Our nation, born on July 4, 1776, has a date with destiny. She was founded to usher in the Aquarian Age and to reignite the fires of an over-shadowing hierarchy that elected to render world service from the higher levels of the inner planes. To birth this plan, certain higher souls were strategically placed to assist in this endeavor. Thomas Jefferson, considered the father of this fledgling democracy wrote these words “With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence we pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.” (Can you imagine any of our wanna-be-elected candidates taking such a pledge?)
Did you know that 9 of the signers died in the Revolutionary war of wounds and hardships. 5 were captured by the British and tortured. 17 lost everything they had. 12 had their houses burned to the ground. All who signed the declaration of independence were branded as traitors to the King with prices on their heads. They were hunted men. The wives and children were persecuted. All suffered great hardships as did the all of the citizens of the rebellious colonies. None violated the pledge. The 56 men who signed the great declaration were ordinary citizens, such as Ben Franklin, a printer, George Taylor, an iron master. The only politician was Samuel Adams and the only soldier was William Floyd. These people were solid, respected and responsible men. They valued honor and good above life itself. How would you compare this to today’s situation? Who appreciates what these people did for us?
Those who live in America or who are Americans are reaping the benefits of this special place. This is the land that others around the world look to for leadership and freedom. The underlying need for all humans is freedom. We, born as a 5 life path, cry out for freedom and have the responsibility to foster what was given to us. We operate under a rule of law and the love of liberty. Those of the Continental Congress loved life but loved liberty more. Life without liberty was unacceptable. Our land was dedicated to the ideals of civil and religious liberty. It is in harmony with America’a high destiny that she become the melting pot for the world and the best example of assimilation. She has embraced all and has received their gifts. It is because of her ability to include all nationalities, she has become the beacon for the oppressed and subjugated of the world. She cannot stop there. Her genius for assimilation is being carried out around the world and will eventually result in the United States of the World.
I personally have benefited from so many others who were not born in the USA. First, my Irish grandparents, who had the courage to come here, my physicians who are from Israel and Germany, my surgeon whose family came from Korea. My gardener from Mexico, my house assistant from El Salvador, my social media persons whose families came from Africa and Latin America, my Croatian girlfriends whose inner strength support my endeavors. The list go on and on as it does for most Americans. We are blessed.
We need to remember our heritage and not place leadership of this great nation in the hands of narcissists, egos and the ill-informed. We cannot shirk from our inheritance of assimilation nor from our great destiny. America has always had an inner government. The raising of humanity is a group operation and this group eventually will save the world. “There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of American’s has a rendezvous with destiny.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
Tor read more about the origins of the USA, I suggest reading “The Mystical Origin of the United States of America” by Ruth Miller as well as “America’s Invisible Guidance” by Corinne Heline. Some of the above information came from these writings. You will never look at America in the same light. It is a sacred land.
Thank you for your kind words. I will keep writing. I appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you, Gail, for all you share. The truth isn’t bias….it’s truth! I applaud your willingness to speak with veracity and candor ! It’s your blog so you get to express it candidly from your viewpoint based on your fact finding. I also appreciate your perspective on numbers, trends and other fascinating information too. I am pleased to be an avid subscriber!
You have very insightful ideas Gail. If you would express your views in a non-partisan way (rare these days) your views would have more value. Viewing one party as bad (republican) and one party as good (democrats) is simplistic.
A big problem is that the voters keep voting the same people into office. What is the definition of crazy? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
The media is so biased they are not doing their job and the voters are not educated or informed.
I’m glad you recommended the books.
We live in a great country; and it is our Constitution that makes us great, not our politicians.
Thanks for your insights.
Wasn’t Pluto in Capricorn when America was born; this is an astrological clue of “male power.” and in the case of the US,
“white male power.” (I need to research the US chart)
We speak about high ideals and, of course, we adhere to some, however, how can we overlook the most glaring and blatant
desecration of spiritual values, and morals when we maintain a concentration camp? And we outsource torture. What American
values are these?
And we have an electorate that, for the most part, “believes” Guantanamo is a “detention camp.”
What Goebbels said is so true…paraphrased..”Hide things in plain sight.”
I have spoken to many Americans who are not aware that Guantanamo is a concentration camp.
Ask a few people you know and some strangers about Guantanamo.
Note: many Jews gave their fortunes to the Revolutionary War.
My great, great, great, grandfather came here, one of 17,000 Hussein German soldiers to fight against the colonists for King George III.
He and 5000 of them went AWOL; he escaped into South Carolina.
Thanks Steve, good question. America is in a big correction mode. It started in earnest in 2008 and will continue to correct for quite some time. We are seeing exposure in all areas of our society. It is particularly relevant in this election as we see the workings of the political parties. No wonder the citizens are angry. The legislature of the country is under the microscope and we see what we have created and allowed. Exposure is essential and really couldn’t be done well until we had the mediums to expose it. We are visiting the period of the first American Revolution. This is a cycle that occurs approximately every 240 years and it has the United States in its’ cross hairs. We have to clean up our act. The acute phase will continue until 2024 when things really start to reverse themselves and the power begins to return back to the people.
America is the way shower of a 2,400 year cycle of human progress. We are only in the first few hundred years of this cycle which is intended to integrate the individual in the collective. We lead the way in the development of the rights of the individual. We are zig zagging our way forward. It is very messy but just as the caterpillar thinks it is the end of the world, the Master sees it’s a butterfly.
Greetings, Gail. I’m curious about how you interpret the shadow side of the birth and growth of the U.S. For all the emphasis by our nation’s founders and leaders on liberty, some of the most revered among these also enabled some of the most shameful, liberty-denying acts, for example: near decimation of Native Americans, the capture and enslavement of Africans, Japanese internment camps, and most recently by regarding corporations as “people” more privledged and entitled than flesh-and-blood citizens. In your estimation, to what extent are the conditions we are experiencing the paying of a long due national karmic debt?
You are deeply respected for the wonderful information you put forth but showing your clear bias against Republicans was frankly beneath you. You also failed to address the volume of Americans who came to this country and applied legally for citizenship, including my grandparents, and my father, my son-in-law and his entire family. They worked hard to follow the rules, and be good citizens and many served in the US Military. America is a country of legal immigrants who built us into who we are today, however fostering that which is against the law, the constitution and the moral ethics of this country is creating a growing anger among Americans of both parties. Your subtle slam against those who do not embrace Hillary as being ‘ill-informed’ was again beneath you. Both candidates are full of ego, and are raging narcissists. You still have the freedom of speech to say what you want and as a retired Naval Commander, I will defend to my death your right to speak your words freely. Please know that absolute fairness will validate your work far more which means: leave politics out of your assessments. Sincerely, Tina Erwin, CDR, USN Ret
Jan, it’s not a Democrat/ Republican bias. The Republicans had 17 candidates running and doing TV debates. The Democrats had two and an almost ran, O’Malley. Clinton we know has made news doing books and speeches, Sanders basically known for his government work, hardly a book comes out of him or a corporate speaking engagement. The track record for the 17 candidates on the Republican side is lopsided with those writing books, hosting TV shows, commanding large sums for speaking and selling their brands.
Regarding your views on “illegal” immigrants, Americans have always had illegal immigrants. Ellis Island shows up orderly but we are historically dotted with those who entered “illegally”. Benjamin Franklin complained loudly about the Germans in 1753 that “few of their children in the country learn English….The signs in our streets have inscriptions in both languages….Unless the stream of their importation could be turned they will soon so outnumber us that all the advantages we have will not be able to preserve our language, and even our government will become precarious.” He said in the same letter that he wasn’t opposed to the immigration of a small number of Germans because “they have their virtues”. Nonetheless, he fretted that the ones who had arrived here were “generally of the most ignorant stupid sort of their own nation,” and would, therefore, bring the country down as a whole if they continued to immigrate. Sounds familiar to today?
You said, “Certainly candidates Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump have helped their own personal brand by commanding higher speaking fees, more book sales and board of director appointments.” You mentioned only Republicans….this seems biased, especially in light of the enormous speaking fees garnered by others, most notably both of the Clintons. There are plenty of corrupt politicians in both parties. Also, regarding immigrants. You fail to distinguish between the legal immigrants who come to the U.S. because they want to be Americans (I’m all for them!) and the illegal ones who come for many other reasons and are creating serious problems for our country.
