5/30/11 The American revolution, Do We Care?

I supported Ron Paul for president in 2008 when forces in the media, political arena and the Republican Party felt otherwise; for 2012 I am further committed to a 2012 President Ron Paul.

As I watch the presidential campaign process unfolding within the Republican Party and other national political parties I notice a greater acceptance and interest in a Ron Paul for president campaign among the media, and general population. Polls are placing Ron Paul in 2 and 3 place among likely primary Republican voters; including a CNN poll two weeks ago showing Ron Paul the best possible Republican candidate to beat Obama in 2012 trailing by just 7%.

Even if the general population would chose to elect Ron Paul for president over Obama in 2012, Ron Paul has to navigate the fickle Republican delegates and party bureaucracy first. To that end, I am providing this video link of Ron Paul’s statement on the United States House of Representatives last week. Ron Paul has principles, is incredibly intelligent, ready to serve his country as president, wise beyond so many others running for office. If the American Revolution happens, a revolution returning our national legislature, executive, and judiciary branches to original intent of our founding fathers under a Constitutional Representative Republic, then President Ron Paul is our choice for the times.

Finally I admit Ron Paul is not perfect, is human, and 74 years old, but I remind you Moses was 80, Noah was 500, along with many of our founding fathers being “ripe” in age; besides age really does not matter when you jog 4 miles a day and have a sharp mind.

5/30/11 Memorial Day

Memorial Day original intent was honoring fallen personal from the civil war, members of both the North and South; the ultimate sacrifice of laying down ones life for another and principles on both sides of a country divided. Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868.

In modern times on this Memorial Day “We the People” are to remember the fallen service personal of our history; those serving America by giving life itself. In 1971 congress politicized Memorial Day by passing the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 - 363) providing Memorial Day is the last Monday in May providing a 3 day weekend.

On this Memorial Day 2011, let us remember original intent, the cost of preserving our great Republic from civil war. In addition let us remember and honor all personal that bled life from the body in preserving of our Republic, Individual Sovereignty, Religious and Civil Liberty; thanking our Great God, and His Son Jesus Christ for the benefits of our Constitutional Representative Republic.

5/25/11 Dayton, Leadership Requires Attendance

Today I pose a question to Governor Dayton. On Monday night May 23, 2011, apparently you were not at the Capitol in St. Paul, and apparently absent from your office during the final hours of the Legislative session.  Governor, you campaigned as “We the Peoples” governor yet I failed to see you on Monday night the most critical day of the legislative session.

Governor, I managed to take the time going to St. Paul on Monday night May 23, 2011; not as an employee of “We the People” like you, I even sat on a bench just a couple feet from your office chambers 11:00pm to 11:35pm and 12:07am to 12:20am.

Leadership requires participation and attendance; you exhibited neither on Monday evening. Even the press was stationed outside your Capitol office, as I was, waiting for your leadership to shine through.

When the people of Minnesota elect me as Governor in 2014, I will stay at work on the last day of session each year, be the last one out the door; first saying a personal goodnight to ALL the overnight Capitol personal before turning out the lights, and only then go home what ever time that may be in the morning.

Commitment to work or a cause is what leadership is about. Governor you need to be on the job and at work to resolve issues, something I learned in the private commercial construction market as a full charge construction superintendent.

5/25/11 Virtuous, Principled, Humble, Gratful Voting

Perhaps legislators should attempt to follow original intent, better yet perhaps "We the People" should at the polls:

"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual - or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country."

Samuel Adams, essay in the Boston Gazette, April 2, 1781

5/23/11 Educating The Youth One At A Time

Nadine and Ihad a wonderful time with a group of 2nd graders at St Charles Borromeo school in St. Anthony today. I shared the concepts of Constitutional Representative Republic form of government, voting responsibility, participation in civil government and campaign activity. Nadine and I wish the students the best summer.  

5/23/11 Testing Tornado Design In Real Time

Prior to moving to Columbia Heights I built a extensive home in 1999 at 40th and Fremont in north Mpls. personally designed to withstand a tornado  Yesterday I won the weather lottery of sorts as a tornado traveled to within 2 blocks of our former home. It will be a couple days before the city allows folks to travel at that location, but when we can we will take photos and update folks on the soundness of my secret designs.

5/23/11 Sharing With 2nd Graders

Nadine joined me this morning as I presented government concepts to a group of 2nd graders at Woodcrest Baptist Church in Fridley. We had a wonderful time educating the kids on the concepts of Republic, Constitution, Liberty, campaigning for public office and the power of the people over government. Who knows how much they will retain but I know they got most of our conversation.

5/22/11 No Liberty Or Diversity allowed At The Capitol

Discussion Topic: after hearing all the commotion in St. Paul at the Capitol on Friday, May 20, 2011, regarding Pastor Bradlee Dean’s prayer and the following backlash, I have decided to weigh in on the subject.

Fact; not one word of the prayer mentioned Homosexuality, Lesbianism or any other sexual reference. So what are the non traditional sexual oriented groups, their supporters and legislatively elected activists upset about?

Fact; the first amendment provides for liberty of free speech as originally debated, argued and dictated by our founding fathers, and not any subsequent Supreme Court opinions. For the less informed here is the text: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

When government (in this case the Minnesota House) sets out a pamphlet of non-denominational rules on prayer they violate every possible expectation of our founders’ intent, principles and direct words. Pastors are called to preach truth as they understand the principles God has set forth and not man. Pastor Bradlee Dean has every right and obligation to pray as his conviction dictates, nothing less, he did, and went one step further by restraining his Biblical convictions on the subject of Homosexuality, Lesbianism, or any other nontraditional form of intimacy.

Fact; if the Minnesota House truly believes in inclusion of and representing “all Minnesotans” as a requirement for being on the Minnesota House Floor as claimed by  Minnesota House members then I ask where is the inclusion for Pastor Bradlee Dean. Has supporting Homosexuality and Lesbianism become the new witness test for leadership and law making representation in St. Paul? I just reviewed our state Constitution and found no such requirement for a pastor’s prayer or elected Legislator.

Fact; for what ever reason, Pastor Bradlee Dean checked his personal conviction and Biblical understanding on the subject of Homosexual and Lesbianism outside the House Chambers. By deleting Pastor Bradlee Dean’s official participation and prayer from the House Journal the Minnesota House proved the greatest hypocrisy possible by condemning someone’s personal conviction in a speech that failed to mention that conviction.

Perhaps, because every personal position, opinion, or conviction is offensive to someone in Minnesota, all seated House Members who are adulterers, Homosexual or Lesbian, Marxist, Socialists, drunks, single, heterosexually married, a thief, or even a gambler who have a propensity toward such opinion in private life should also be shown the door by the Sergeant of Arms and Capitol Police.

5/22/11 Headed To The Capitol

I am attending the Capitol Monday night to watch the final hours of political pandering by our leaders. We are headed to St. Paul at 9:00pm for the midnight adjournment. I have a couple previously non political folks who are joining me, fed up and curious as to what happens in St. Paul.

5/20/11 The Truth About $32,000,000,000.00

I have had several key liberty Republicans take issue with my pushing the March 19, 2011 CD-5 proclamation on spending limits that unanimously was accepted and directed to deliver to Republican leadership in St Paul. Maneuvering by CD-5 leadership and Republican Party leadership voided any value of the proclamation.

One specific 2010 candidate took special umbrage for my suggestion candidates and the Republican Party ran on a $32,000,000,000.00 general fund last year. Today I received a Minnesota Republican Party email stating that very fact of running on $32,000,000,000.00. Here is the vindication for all the flack I personally received from fellow Liberty Republicans. Leadership requires being in the front line at times, showing truth and principle.

The word of the day when it comes to media reporting on budget negotiations is “compromise.” Gov. Dayton is playing the compromise card big time and the media is regurgitating the DFL line. The implication is if Republicans were “reasonable” they would meet the governor halfway and “compromise” on a balanced approach of spending cuts and tax increases. We’ll be addressing this with the media, but I want to fill you in on how the Republican Party views the concept of “compromise.”

First, we feel we have already moved in the governor’s direction. Republicans campaigned on a $32 billion budget and moved to $34 billion only after the revenue forecast came in better than expected. Speaker Zellers called $34 billion the GOP’s “last best offer” and the Republicans in the legislature are sticking to their guns.

5/20/11 Bipartisanship Violates Our Constitution

Someone in the Republican Party needs to explain how the founding fathers original intent, liberty and our Constitutional Representative Republic equate to extending the Patriot Act, installed to get the now Dead Osama Bin Laden. Why am I a Republican? Who supports "We the People"? Criminal is the Republican bipartisanship for continued criminalizing the God given rights to liberty and private property rights. The greater threat is in Washington and St. Paul not the Middle East.

5/19/11 Off To Work With Federalist Papers

Headed to work soon, taking Federalist Papers 6,7, and 8 for reading materials. The purpose of national government was specifically to secure the liberty of the people, protect states rights. So far each Federalist Paper origional intent, like an arrow on those issues. I see no intenion to secure the national government as God, King or tyrannical over the states, especially the people, makes a grown man weep.

5/12/11 "Stop The Obamacare Exchange" Rally At The Capitol

Tim made the trip to St. Paul on Thursday and joined others who understand the horrific legislation working it's way through the process in St. Paul. Even harder is the realization the Obamacare Exchange bill was introduced by Republicans in the Legislature. Who needs Democrats when you have Republicans? Plenty of press covered the rally providing good coverage of the event. Tim gives Twila a great Thank You for her service in medical arena.

5/12/11 Endorsement of Ron Paul

Ron Paul is officially running for president. Dr. Paul is a Baptist, pro life, states rights, Constitutional Representative Republic protector, conservative, who supports constitutional principles of national defense, personal liberty including civil and religious.

Today I give my full support and endorsement of Ron Paul for President. For folks who like my stances on Constitutional Government, principles of political activity, and positions you will like Ron Paul for president in 2012.

For those who are questioning Dr. Paul’s positions go the “horse mouth” and get Dr. Paul’s several publications on his positions, educate your self, then make an informed decision. As for Nadine and I we have made our choice, Ron Paul 2012

5/2/11 Proposed Redistricting Map for 50-A

The proposed map for 50-A would actually change the district name to 38-B. We needed to add just over 1,000 residents to the district and I suspected the direction would go north. The proposal removes St. Anthony and takes our district up to Spring Lake Park. We lose much of Fridley north of 61st and west of University. Any comments contact us at

5/1/11 King Of American Terror Dead, Time to Return Home?

Osama bin laden is apparently dead at the hands of our military. I fail to see the purpose for all the celebration; do we expect to leave Afghanistan, Pakistani, and Iraq starting tomorrow now that our mimesis, and our military reason for being in the Middle East, Bin Laden is gone? Many more Americans will continue to shed blood and life it’s self on distant sands.

Osama Bin Laden is dead, but after 10 years of undeclared war against Osama Bin Laden he has become only a symbol of our conflict in 2011 and beyond.
