Empowerment Clubs

This essay does not argue for either religion or atheism. As I think you will see, I am trying to build a common bridge that will empower everyone to be more effective fighters for truth, liberty and justice.

Billions of people go to church, temple or mosque - driven by human desires to be uplifted and to find a sense of comraderie with other people. But in the process, they get exposed to messages such as:

Persistence is Key to Victory

In the battle for truth and justice, those who are most persistent will ultimately win.

Being right isn't enough. If we speak the truth ninety times, but then stop speaking the truth, those spreading propaganda will win when they repeat their false statements for the ninety-first time.

Whoever lasts longest will win.

The propagandists will try to destroy the American public's ability to think by repeating lies over and over for years on end.

We must keep speaking the truth and demanding justice again and again until the truth is known by all, and justice prevails.

It is hard to beat a person who never gives up.
- Babe Ruth

I don't think anything is unrealistic if you believe you can do it. I think if you are determined enough and willing to pay the price, you can get it done.

We've Already Won.

Asleep at the Wheel

Why now is the time for Americans to wake up and save their republic

Now is the time. The floodgates have opened. People are talking. Is there a problem? Yes. We’ve been lied to. We are sacrificing young American men in Iraq every day. God knows how many Iraqis and Afghanis we’ve killed. If we sit by and not say a word as we allow this to happen, we are guilty. We are guilty of giving too much control to too few. We are guilty for not speaking out against the lies and injustices, the torture and unbelievable deceit, the breaking of America by people who are bent on dictating, controlling and destroying. They’ve done away with the Constitution. They’ve hijacked the airwaves. They are trying to get us to go along with their march toward a new order, but did anyone ever ask us if we thought the whole idea was a good one? State secrets do nothing but harm open and transparent societies. Some will argue that there is no such thing as a fully transparent government, but few can argue that our current government is not secretive. It is our duty as Americans to make things right. A government that cannot be held accountable for its crimes is a rogue regime. A government that does not obey its own Constitution is destined for failure and can only succeed if the populace does nothing. If you know the truth, you must share it. If you want to change the world for the better, you have to get out into the streets and do it!
