Politics and the 80/20 Principle

Politics and the 80/20 Principle

We all know by now that the 80/20 principle states that 80% of our business comes from 20% of our customers and 80% of our complaints come from 20% of them as well.

So what do I mean when I refer to an 80/20 principle in politics? If seems to me, and this is just my opinion based on decades of observation – that maybe 10% of the people are on the far left. And 10% are on the far right. That leaves the vast majority – 80% in between.

The 20% get the majority of the media attention, their respective political parties act as if everyone agrees with “their” 10% and hated the other party’s 10% passionately.

The founding fathers, recognizing that our country was too big – even then, for everybody to sit around a big table in Philadelphia, established a representative democracy. We, the people, elect folks to represent us.

These representatives go to our state houses and to Washington as our representatives. They are there to do our bidding. They work for us. They represent us.

Well that was the theory anyway. It turns out that they have a different agenda. It looks like this to me. First they want to get re-elected, forever. Second, they want their party to control things so they (whoever ‘they’) are can do what their party wants and not what we, the people, want. And finally, they want to make sure that whatever the other party does, tries to do, or proposes – fails.

How to Achieve 'Liberty' – The Freedom to Choose the Path Our Lives Take

How to Achieve 'Liberty' – The Freedom to Choose the Path Our Lives Take

Cage birds accept each other but flight is what they long for.

–Tennessee Williams, Camino Real, 1953

The power to choose how to act and react to the world around us creates our reality, because we have the freedom to control our own lives. It is the choice to turn left or right, to be happy or sad, and it is always with us even at those times when we do not feel free. Its power is enormous. It can be our greatest ally or it can become our greatest enemy. By making the right choices, we can open the doors to lead a balanced life.

Many of us like to think that we are the spokesperson for the universe, that we know all the answers to all the questions of the universe. In our more humble moments, we generally understand that each of us only can be our own spokesperson. However, when we accept the gift of freedom of choice, we must take responsibility and become accountable for everything in our lives.

We must truly and deeply understand that only we are responsible for the decisions we make and the results that manifest themselves in our lives. To be the caged bird or to fly like an eagle; freedom of choice lets us be the masters of our destiny or victims of our fate.

Quest for Freedom–A Story Of Pure Courage

Quest for Freedom–A Story Of Pure Courage

The Nazis stormed into the house of Stanislavsky Lech, who was Jewish, herded the entire family out at gunpoint, packed them into an overcrowded train, filled with the stench of death and despair, and sent them to Krakow.

Then, before his eyes, Lech saw his entire family shot. Somehow, he managed to live from one day to the next, in a numb, oblivious, zombie-like state. Impatiently, he awaited his own death. But one day, he realized, that his own death was not an unavoidable truth. He could, in fact, do something about it: he could make an attempt to escape.

Once he had made his decision, he didn’t know how to execute it. He only knew one simple thing: his decision was irrevocable, and, somehow, he had to find a way to act on it.

As the weeks passed into months, he interrogated his fellow prisoners. “How can we escape?” he would ask. He became a nuisance, an irritation. “It’s hopeless,” they would echo. “Stop hurting yourself,” they would plead. Some would abuse him openly; others would turn away in silence.

In turn, he rejected their answers, their silences, their overbearing despair. There has to be a way, he told himself, and I will find it. This is my revenge: by surviving I will prove that the Nazis aren’t invincible and that they don’t have complete control of our wills and that they can’t do what they like with us.

Late Summer Attact on America?

Late Summer Attact on America?

Introduction to the Video from sylvestermoore
I have uploaded some new video footage of the fema cremation coffins that exist in conyers georgia. US Intel department said they expect a WMD attack on US soil within 5 years. They suspect it will be a biological attack.

A dispassionate review of the facts makes clear that, if a large number of coffins had to be stockpiled in anticipation of some ultra-dire national emergency, Atlanta would be a good place to do it. It is a major confluence for road, rail, and air traffic. Hartsfield Jackson is one of the nations biggest and busiest hubs for commercial aviation. Atlanta is also home to the Centers for Disease Control. Is it the CDC that knows something we dont? Is a plague expected and no one is telling us? As radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones wrote on his website Prison Planet, I dont want to alarm anyone, but usually you dont buy 500,000 plastic coffins just in case something happens; You buy them because you know something is going to happen.

If you have been reading the Series on the destruction of America many of the things in this video will not surprise you. The plan to conquer the United States put in place over forty years ago is coming to fruition. Next up – the world, as in the new world order. That it will be a violent event should not be surprising for as Mahatam Gandhi said:

This may be a video that helps you understand why certain people who believe they are following the good teaching of Christ, instead back the actions that are a far cry from Christ. If the leaders preach hate, intolerance, the followers will also. It is in our nature to be these things, it is religion that should hold us to a better standard.
