I’ve been getting a lot of hits over the last couple of days for Brandon Raub, so I made a quick post and put some links on here for you to find out more information. Let’s keep him on the radar and expose what’s going on!
Here is the link for the Facebook Group ‘Free Brandon Raub’:
This morning I read two disturbing articles about clamping down on freedom of speech. These articles speak for themselves.
The first one is by Conservative Daily News, and talks about Brandon Ruab, who is a military veteran, and who has just been ‘detained’ indefinitely, for questioning the government on his Facebook page:
The second one is by Activist Post, and is about silencing dissent. The article explores what is going on right now regarding protesters, and the government’s clamping down on freedom of speech and expression:
We must learn what is going on, and we must tell others.
Do not give in to fear, stand up, speak out, click on these articles and share them with your friends, your co-workers, anyone who will listen. Even if it scares you to do so, you must make a stand, you must say ‘no’ to tyranny. If you do not stand up, the fear tactics currently being used will take an even stronger hold and the culprits will know that they have won.
This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, but only so long as people stand up and protect that right. Bravery does not mean lack of fear, it means overcoming that fear and doing what is right anyway. Wake up, step up, and make your stand. Make your voice heard, and spread the message through this great torrent of information we call the internet. The mainstream media has let us down, but we the people are the mainstream, so lets get the word out and reclaim the freedom that is rightfully ours.
I decided to start this blog, in order to get things off my mind, and to help turn the switch on in others. I’ve spent the last 7 years living and thinking outside of the box, and it has led me to where I am today.
I know that I am starting to talk more and more about politics, and the reason is no more than my need of government to step out of the way of the people.
My home country, the one I was born in, has slowly crept up and strangled the life out of its people. It went from the largest empire in history, off the back of lazier-fair capitalism, free thinking and inventions, to a socialist snake pit.
I want to live in a world where people are free to think and live in the way that they desire.
When I first came to America, I saw that in people, I saw that they could make their dreams a reality. I saw the big cars, the tall buildings, the wacky ice cream shops, the fully finished basements, the custom designed swimming pools, and everything in between. I thought I had landed in paradise. Thinking back on it, I had. But at my young age, I did not realize that this dream was slowly being strangled.
We are all created equal, but we do not start off in the same place. For some it is easier than others. But what is, or should always be equal, is the chance for the individual to struggle, and if his head and his heart are in the right place, eventually, with determination, that he succeed.
Laws are supposed to be put in place so that the playing field is leveled, so that those with less can struggle, learn, and prosper their way to the top. Those who are already at the top, can learn, and use their knowledge to maintain their status. If they do not act wisely, they should always be allowed to fail, no matter how big or how wealthy. Those in the middle should be allowed to struggle, make a decent living, invent and produce their way to the top. Or, if they do not educate themselves, they should be allowed to fail also. That is capitalism backed by fair laws, that level the playing field, not laws that redistribute wealth. This is the most fair system in history. It does not give way to demi gods.
If the United States government was not so corrupt to the point that it is strangling itself and its people, I would not be blogging right now, and doing my best to warn others to wake up.
I actually hate politics. I’d rather be sitting on a beach right now with my wife, or taking her out to the movies. Sure we still do all those things, but it would be far easier to work, come home, and play video games without a care in the world. Right now I cannot sit still, I cannot play video games for more than a few minutes without the urge to write, without the urge to research. I have to dig deeper, to fall further down the rabbit hole.
Any why? Why? I hear you ask. Because:
I want my children to grow up in a world of opportunities, not a life of servitude, I want them to be able to struggle toward prosperity, not strain under the hardships of totalitarian rules.
I want to be able to buy and operate a skycar I want to be able to live a long life, well beyond the years my ancestors lived. I want to grow knowledge in my mind, teach others and help this world become a better place.
I want to live my life to the fullest, not just now in this moment, but in my future as well. Life is not a race against the clock, it is a marathon, and I want to enjoy each mile. When you know there are pitfalls ahead, do you stamp the accelerator, or shift gears and prepare for the dissent? A controlled dissent and then a roaring charge back up the hill again, is better than flying out into the middle, crashing, buckling the wheels, and spending extra time fixing the damage.
So it is my responsibility to help restore this country, and provide the shining beacon of hope in the world. Sometimes you don’t choose your destiny, it chooses you. Sometimes you find yourself waiting for someone to do something, then you realize you’re the only one who will.
I’ll stand for freedom, because its the one thing that is always worth standing for.
If we are to prosper as a nation and as a world, we need to live in freedom, with fair laws that keep real criminals at bay. If we are to advance technology to enrich our lives, we must first see and realize the quality of our lives, not allow the government to steer us like cattle, and use our technology against us.
I’m not particularly interested in helping my fellow man, he can help himself. But what I will do is ensure that he is able to help himself, and not held back by bureaucracy. It is bureaucracy that led to the dark ages, and held people back for centuries, and it is bureaucracy that will again lead back to that, if we do not stand up and defend our individual liberties.
I am not on some holy mission to prove a point. I am simply standing up against would be tyrants. I am standing up because I know that if enough people stand up, make their voice heard, do enough research, learn the truth in the world, that we can prevent tyranny and oppression.
That might sound really spooky un-realistic, but just look at the world around us right now, and some of the rhetoric that is going on between presidential candidates.
So if you like reading this blog, good, I am glad, I will continue to write for as long as I can, while the thoughts flow through my mind, while I am still ‘allowed to’ and I will do my best to expose the truth, and help teach what I have learned, to help the world grow and prosper.
Capitalism, liberty, free thinking, rule of law and inventions, these are amongst the greatest ideals of our time, and should always be upheld, it is how the world moves forward.
I hope enough people wake up and make a difference before it is too late.
Tomorrow wikipedia will be blacked out, we will not be able to access their articles and we will not be able to use this great resource for unbias encyclopedia for everything from history to current events, and from science to mathematics.
Personally, I use wikipedia to research pretty much everything. It is the single best peice of online software out there. No other place in history has held so much information in one place, accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world.
As for Craigslist, it is another great site, engineered through internet freedom, where you can do anything from trading cars, to advertising for events.
Even this site; wordpress; would be under attack under these bills, this site which we all use to read from, or write to. We would not be able to express our freedom of speech.
Please click on the following links to find out more about SOPA & PIPA
These bills are evil bills designed by evil men for special interests. One of the biggest problems, if not the biggest problem in this country right now is special interests. Because of a few companies that seek to get the advantage over others, they would threaten the freedoms of all 300 million people in this country. The freedom of speech and expression is as large and as widespread as it has even been before, because of the internet, and it is so, because there are no laws and no government infringing upon those freedoms.
The strike starts tomorrow, be prepared, it will affect many sites.
If this site goes down, I hope to see you all on Thursday.
I woke up this morning to find that the internet is indeed on strike!
Here are a few of my favorite sites, all protesting, and one (wikipedia) not functioning at all. Their statement is a very important one; ‘Imagine a world without free knowledge’
What if none of our websites worked? What if all the top producers stopped showing up for work?
The looters of society, the special interest groups, the men who seek to make a quick buck by paralyzing their competition. These men do not understand that money is based upon value. Value is derived from producing. If we do not produce products of value, then money has no value. Eventually, there becomes no incentive to work anymore, and no incentive to produce, and so these quick buck lobbyists will loot their cash, and drain the blood of the hard workers and producers, until the workers die, or simply ‘shrug’.
