|everyone is bothered by congress nullifying the constitution and bill of rights and sending their federal police force out to round up the discontented-
well, the federal police force could have been exposed by Rainbow in a manner that no one else could have, and no one will get another chance with the volume of evidence that was available -
the bureaucracy and political straw persons would have been exposed at the same time-
we would have had the association of counties, sheriffs' groups, and who knows whom lining up (behind us) to condemn the usurpation of reserved, memorialized, and natural rights-
Now it seems to be in the hands of conservative special interests who want to cut trees build nuke power plants while denying global warming to say nothing about cutting spending for education, medicare, etc.
the saying comes to mind about not speaking up and now there is no one left to speak up-
Occupy-the-World is waking up the entire world to the sad illusion of modern America and also to the promise that somehow still remains.
while Rainbow has been fighting against the very idea of the government granting or refusing to grant a permit for American citizens and other Human Beings to assemble freely, to experiment with direct democracy via consensus and the magic of Circle, to network and teach and share non-commercially on public lands
the rest of Amerika said "it's just a bunch of hippies trying to party in the woods, who cares?" and allowed the control freaks to take all this power unto themselves. But we said "No body of individuals should have to form or structure themselves in a prescribed or dictated manner in order to exercise, collectively, rights held individually. No one can speak for or sign for an assembly of equal individuals and the U.S. Constitution did not grant any rights but rather restricted government, restricted corporations, gave all the Power to the People (read that "We the People") and very simply ENUMERATED the rights we ALL have simply by virtue of being Human Beings. Personally I would add to all of this, the rights all living creatures have simply by virtue of being LIFE itself.

they never kept but one; They promised to take our land,

I owe much of the above to My good friend and brother Stephen...
and I owe the sharing below to My sister and beloved Joanee who passed it on... and on...

Dear Family and Friends,
I have sent this to 48 people and my friend who sent it to me. I don't usually like to do this but the message is very important in our day and time and through Internet we can reach a lot of people very quickly. I blocked and copied the the message below to avoid multiple forwardings. Buffet's sage suggestions is our future. Our government officials need to live the way we live. It's only fair. Further, without them trying to keep their careers going indefinitely because of all the cool perks, they might become more interested in their actual job rather than working on getting elected year after year. This could improve the efficiency of the government. If we must have a government, then it should be as fair and efficient as possible.
Thanks for considering the below, and please forward widely.
Love, peace, thanks.
Winds of Change
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.
*Congressional Reform Act of 2011* 1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the US) to receive the message. Don't you think it's time?
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!
If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete. You are one of my 20+ Please keep it going, and thanks!
