|Bio / About
“An old Cherokee Indian told his grandson, “My son, there’s a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, laziness, lies, and ego. The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, kindness, empathy, and truth.” The grandson thought about it and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” The old man simply replied, “The one you feed.”
It’s been “Bernie or Bust” for me through to the convention and hopefully beyond. Though the “Bust” may mean starting from scratch building a new progressive independent party or it may mean remaining No Party Preference, or joining the ranks with other existing parties, such as Peace and Freedom.
It takes a lot of time and I’m willing to help in any way I am able IF the leadership elected by its members reflect party principles agreed to by the rank and file. Additionally, I need to see the elected leadership demonstrating a credible degree of ethical character in possession of political acumen, judgement and sophistication. Along with the necessary vision to carry a campaign through to victory.
The level of skills necessary to carry the fight through fields of hidden landmines and firing torpedoes from all directions in the deep murky waters of the existing political cesspool swamp where neoliberal/neoconservative corporate fascists breed and multiply.
Daunting yet necessary.
The moment Bernie announced his endorsement, it was if a “green light” signaled for Jill Stein and her surrogates to come swooping down on the fledgling nascent political revolution movement like vultures in a feeding frenzy on the carcass of fresh road kill.
We may be a bit injured and limping, but not dead yet.
I’m not sure at this point who will get my vote, but it won’t be Hill nor will it be Jill.
I may decide to explore Gloria La Riva, candidate for President with the Peace & Freedom party once again. I don’t know yet, I will make that decision after the convention.
