Romantic Love and Soulmates: Why They Are Important

Since its earliest cultures, history records that man has held the dream of uniting with his split or divided self. David Icke’s interviews with Credo Mutwa reveal the Zulu shaman telling the same story, how the gods split humans in two (male and female) so as to weaken the power of humanity. In Greece, we find Plato talking about the same “myth,” that humans were becoming too powerful, posing a threat to the gods, so the gods had to cut them down the middle to weaken them. Ever since, each of us has a soulmate out there in the universe that we instinctively search for. So go the old stories.

I forget if it was the Greeks or Zulus who said that sex was created by the gods to help mankind get through their grief at the time of this division: humans were dying right and left, unwilling to eat or drink and wasting away in their sorrow at being split. Sex was invented by the gods then to give them a temporary feeling of unity. The fix helped fill the emptiness, whether the sex was with the soulmate or with someone else. So say the old tales.

The question is, are such accounts reflective of truth or fiction? If they’re not true, why does every human being instinctively have the urge to find and unite with their other self? Is it just a chemical need, a body thing, or does the need spring from something deeper, a soul lack? Certainly, once we unite consciously with the Infinite, which is the base and core of what we are, such feelings of lack disappear, at least until we get overshadowed by the world again. But is it possible our souls themselves, our spirits, have been divided on some level — not at the deepest level where we are all one, but very close to that depth?

The analogy I like to picture for wholeness existing with individuality is Matthew Arnold’s poetic picture of separate islands “linking their coral arms beneath the sea.” We are individuals in this world, but we are collectively one at our base, because we exist not just as the surface of the island, which is small and separate, but as the level of the island that is the infinite ocean floor, the place from which we, as individual “island” projections, originally sprang.

If individuals have been “split,” we would alter this mental picture by showing a projection rising from the ocean floor that, a small ways up from the bottom, divides into two projections, two parallel islands. I give this analogy to clarify what I mean about being split at a very deep but not at the deepest level where we’re one with all life.

While I know I’m Infinite Consciousness having an experience as Bronte Baxter, and while the name and history of Bronte Baxter would disappear if she perished, I believe there’s a part of her, an essence of her, that continues on in consciousness as a unique individual even if death takes the body. Bronte doesn’t disappear at death into an amorphous wholeness: she becomes pure soul, pure spirit — more conscious (than when embodied) of her oneness with the Source, but a unique individual nonetheless.

If this is NOT true, then God creates us as individuals only to destroy us. What creator desires to destroy its unique creations? Artists treasure their art work, desire to see it cherished and preserved forever. Surely the Infinite treasures Its children, and wishes to see them no less eternal. There is always the odd painting that just doesn’t work out, and the artist paints over that canvas. But by and large artists cherish their creations, and from their heart wish to preserve them. Why would the Infinite, who created this world to expand and express its Joy, be any different?

So if we are individuals, not just at a physical level but at a soul level, too, it means we are more than just infinite consciousness. We are all the tendencies and permutations that our unique expression of the Infinite embodies — not chemically, somatically, but on the deeper spiritual level. All the stones on a lakeshore are made up of the same “stone” essence, but each of them expresses “stone” in a unique way in terms of color, texture, shape, veining, etc. Like that, our souls are unique and remain so after physical death. If they didn’t remain distinct and unique, we would be throwaways: things God made for one lifetime only, just to be dissolved into the Source at the end. I think better of God’s intentions than that.

If we are individuals spiritually, not just physically, then it seems to me very possible we could have been “split” on a soul level by the entities who want to keep us unknowing and weak. Plato’s myth even goes so far as to say that if man gets too powerful and godlike again, the gods will split us yet another time, sometime in the future. Splitting anything weakens it, makes it lose its integrity. So this is useful to the gods’ controlling purposes.

I believe in the soulmate theory because I don’t think one of the deepest longings of the human spirit is just a “chemical” thing, a chimera. It is manipulated by chemicals, by tempting the human sex drive, but the longing for the other half is a genuine desire, a spiritual desire, that goes way deeper than simple affairs of the flesh. In the same manner, when we find the soulmate, the experience is far deeper than sexual attraction or sexual enjoyment. The spiritual component is so strong, the spiritual union so profound, that some who’ve had it report it to be one of the highest, most profound experiences possible in this life.

The poet John Donne wrote of such a love, such a relationship. In his poem “The Ecstasy,” he speaks of lying next to his beloved and being suspended in a state beyond sex, beyond desire, in perfect spiritual union and bliss. His poem “A Valediction Forbidding Mourning” is my favorite: he was leaving for a trip, and his pregnant wife had premonitions that something bad would happen if he left. It did: she miscarried in his absence. That is the background of the poem, which was written to reassure her before he left for the journey. In the poem he compares him and his wife to two legs of one compass — the leg that must journey outward being made stable by the leg that “stays home” in the center. He compares their love to gold that may be beat by a goldsmith to “airy thinness” – spread wide, reshaped and hammered to the level of lace, but never divided.

“Our two souls, therefore, which are one, endure not yet a breach, but an expansion: like gold to airy thinness beat.”

Here is a poem written by a girl about her soulmate, whose thoughts and feelings she came to instinctively know over the years that followed, although the two were separated on the surface level of life:

across time and space
a golden thread is cast
that links our souls.

Funny, love,
today I felt it tugging:
little pulling pains upon the heart.

Like a kind of telephone
I don’t know how to use,
this discovery.

Yet it links us wholly
though hardly understood,
this lifeline
of Eternity.

Shakespeare wrote the following beautiful sonnet about true romantic love:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments.
Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds
Or bends with the remover to remove.
Oh no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unmeasured, though its height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come.
Love alters not with his brief hours or weeks
But bears it out unto the edge of doom:
If this is false and be upon me proved,
Then I have never writ, nor no man loved.

Here is an anonymous love poem that shows the spirituality of true romantic love, lifting the spirit to its primordial unity, not only with the soulmate but with all of life:

In thy sweet presence I have found
My ancient long-forgotten home
Where all life’s broken factions mend
In time beyond significance.
And I in fond confusion turn, “Where is my heart?”
For I am lost, and find myself in everything.

There is also this gem of a sonnet from Elizabeth Barrett Browning, whose husband, the poet Robert Browning, first met her as an invalid considerably older than himself, then treasured her for decades until the day she died. They fell in love through writing letters – not exactly “body consciousness” driving this a romance:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
I love thee to the breadth, depth and height
My soul can reach when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of each day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use in my old grieves
And with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with the love I seemed to lose with my lost saints.
I love thee with the breath, smiles and tears of all my life,
And if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.

Literature is filled with jewels like these, eternal testaments to the truth and lastingness of “the real thing”: the love of soulmates for each other. Such love is one of the great gifts in this world. It is beyond friendship, though true friendship is a treasure in its own right. Unlike superficial hormone-based love, friendship may seem a more solid bet for the tentative heart than romance, but friends betray friends the same as lovers can, and it hurts almost as much. There are no guarantees in any human relationship.

I think when we experience love gone sour, for a long time most people feel cynical, no longer believing in romantic love, claiming it’s nothing but chemicals and that being in love has no substance. But the great lovers of the world experience love differently, and they hold up the torch for the rest of us. It is not wrong or foolish to have a dream of lasting romantic love: it is one of the purest desires in every human heart, basic to our humanity. The dream of return of the soulmate gives us great hope in this world, and leads us back to that original love and to our even more primordial union with God. Indeed, we’ll never be totally “one” until we’re one again not only with Infinite Consciousness, our eternal parent, but with our eternal spouse, our lost halved individual self, the soulmate.

Please enjoy the following love poems and poem excerpts, which are some of my favorites:

From Matthew Arnold’s “To Marguerite”:

Only, but this is rare: when a beloved hand is laid in ours
When jaded by the rush and glare of the interminable hours
Our eyes can in another’s eyes read clear
When our world-deafened ear
Is by the tones of a loved voice caressed,
A bolt is shot back somewhere in the breast,
And a lost pulse of feeling stirs again.
The eye sinks inward, and the heart lives plain.
And what we mean, we say. And what we would, we know.
A man becomes aware of his life’s flow
And hears its winding murmur, and he sees
The meadows where it glides, the sun, the breeze.
And there arrives a lull in the hot race
Wherein he doth forever chase
That flying and elusive shadow: rest.
An air of coolness plays upon his face,
And an unwonted calm pervades his breast.
And then he thinks he knows
The hills where his life rose
And the sea where it goes.

The following poem is about Matthew Arnold’s loss in his lifetime of his soulmate:

In this fair stranger’s eyes of gray
Thine eyes, my love, I see.
I tremble, for the passing day
Had borne me far from thee.

This is the curse of life
That not a calmer, nobler strain
Of wiser thoughts and feelings
Blots our passions from our brain

But each day brings its petty dust
Our soon-checked souls to fill,
And we forget because we must
And not because we will.

I struggle towards the Light,
And ye once-longed-for storms of Love!
If with the Light ye cannot be,
I bear that ye remove.

I struggle towards the Light,
But oh, while yet the night is chill,
Upon Time’s barren, stormy flow,
Stay with me, Marguerite, still!

John Donne’s “A Valediction Forbidding Mourning”

As virtuous men pass mildly away,

And whisper to their souls to go,

Whilst some of their sad friends do say,

“The breath goes now,” and some say, “No,”

So let us melt, and make no noise,

No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move:

‘Twere profanation of our joys

To tell the laity our love.

Moving of the earth brings harms and fears;

Men reckon what it did, and meant,

But trepidation of the spheres,

Though greater far, is innocent.

Dull sublunary lovers’ love

(Whose soul is sense) cannot admit

Absence, because it doth remove

Those things which elemented it.

But we by a love so much refined

That ourselves know not what

Inter-assured of the mind,

Care less, eyes, lips, and hands to miss.

Our two souls therefore, which are one,

Though I must go, endure not yet

A breach, but an expansion,

Like gold to airy thinness beat.

If they be two, they are two so

As stiff twin compasses are two;

Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show

To move, but doth, if the other do.

And though it in the center sit,

Yet when the other far doth roam,

It leans, and hearkens after it,

And grows erect, as that comes home.

Such wilt thou be to me, who must

Like the other foot, obliquely run:

Thy firmness draws my circle just,

And makes me end where I begun.

Taking Back Congress: What Americans Must Do Now

We have four weeks until the U.S. elections. Four weeks to spread the viral word through emails, fliers, any tools we’ve got, that now is the time for Americans to take back their Congress, to elect representatives who represent the will and best interest of the people.

Why don’t I say “time to take back the presidency”? Because that’s harder, with so many people believing still in Obama, and with the independent vote split between people planning to write in Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, Marcy Kaptur, Cynthia McKinney and others. The presidency will be harder to return to the people in this next election, but Congress is a piece of cake if we do our cooking right.

Think about it. Americans are outraged that Congress betrayed the massively expressed will of the people. They bury their rage under the flimsy hope that maybe Congress knew better than they did the way out of the mess, that maybe we the people just don’t understand high finance well enough. But as the market continues to tumble and fear continues to rise, Americans are trusting less and less that Congress knows what it’s doing.

This is the time to send out the idea into the American consciousness that we must kick out every Senator and House Representative who voted for the bailout bill. If we can convince our fellows of that, and if we elect a new Congress that represents the people, we have real hope of turning around our situation.

A Congress filled with the people’s people would repeal the Patriot Act, dissolve the Federal Reserve, reinstate tariffs, and do all the other legal things necessary to restore our sovereignty and freedoms. A Congress that represents the people will say no to the manipulations of a power-elite president, and such a president will be weak without a Congress ratifying his schemes.

CONGRESS IS THE KEY. To elect a good one, we need to each work locally, first by examining the roster of candidates to determine those who are the power players and those who are decent folk. We need to research who’s running and decide who among them should represent us.

If there is a U.S. Senate or U.S. House position that has no candidate running except for power-elites, we must invent a stout write-in candidate for that position. If you know of no one personally who could do the job, take a look at your local “voters’ pamphlet” to find good people running for local positions in government whom you might persuade to serve in the higher position of U.S. Senator or U.S. House Rep. Phone these likely people and ask them questions to clearly determine their attitudes and positions, then ask prospects if they would go to Washington for a term if the people elected them through a grassroots “write-in” campaign.

Keep phoning prospective write-in candidates and interviewing them until you’ve found your man (or woman). Then create a viral flurry within your district/state to elect that write-in candidate along with the decent people who are already running on the ballot. Email can be highly effective for this.

If you do a web-search for “write-in candidate U.S. Senate” or “write-in candidate U.S. House,” you will see that people get elected that way all the time. This is a practical strategy that can work, but it takes some work, and we have 4 weeks to do it. If you possibly can, research people running for House districts other than your own, and include the names of “the good guys” running in the other districts in your viral campaign. At the bottom of every email, include a note “SPREAD THIS E-MAIL FAR AND WIDE. IF YOU DO, WE CAN RESTORE CONGRESS TO THE PEOPLE.”

Our emails must always remind of the ultimate truth: that the crash was intentionally manipulated by the power-elite to move the world closer toward global fascist economy and government, and that anyone who voted to support the bailout is either a fool or in league with that power elite. But we must argue further (for those not yet convinced there’s a global agenda) that even if you don’t believe the disaster was intentional, it’s plain to see that those in Congress who voted for the bailout thumbed their noses at the will of the people they were elected to represent and instead accepted the solution of the very individuals who caused the problem in the first place: the U.S. Secretary of Treasury and the chairman of the Federal Reserve. We must route out the Congressional representatives who cave to pressure, power, and flattery (i.e., Obama phone call) and replace them with decent, ordinary folk whose only interest is what’s best for their people.

Any angry American can see the reasonableness behind that logic, once it is explained to them. It won’t be hard to mobilize a grassroots back-kick and to elect a “people’s Congress” if we put forth some effort. Is it worth the trouble? I don’t think anyone reading this could deny that.

What is the alternative if we don’t take this action, except a continuing march toward even greater tyranny? Starting a viral campaign now to restore Congress to the people is a peaceable, powerful way to subvert the efforts of the power-elite to create a police state in America. If we don’t act now, if we allow our fear or discouragement to render us deer in the headlights, we are responsible, right along with the power-mongers and head-in-the-sand Americans, for the marshal law that follows. Do we really want that on our conscience?

I know how scary it is, now that push has come to shove and all we’ve heard predicted is starting to happen. I get scared too, and even occasionally fantasize running and hiding. But it’s in such moments that men and women are called on to be great. It’s in these moments that we find hidden resources within ourselves – resources that give us energy and ideas that can bring new life to a nation.

Does that sound grandiose? It’s just the situation. Either we rise to be the heroes now, or who will? The myopic followers who still trust in the Cystem? The power mongers, who are laughing behind their hands at our ineffectual moaning and predictions? Our little children and grandchildren?

There is always hope, even in dire situations. In any conspiracy plan, there are always the seams, the cracks. Every piece of pottery has its delicate spot, every warrior his Achilles’ heel. Our job is to search out those holes and cracks and manipulate them to our advantage. Right now such a crack has presented itself in the form of the Congress to be chosen in the next election. We need to seize this opportunity and run with it, NOW.

The movie “Rescue Dawn” told the real-life story of Deiter Dengler, a U.S. Navy pilot who crashed in Viet Nam. Thrown into a prison camp, he announced to his fellow POWS the moment he was locked up that he was going to free himself out by morning. They scoffed at his impractical resolve, and indeed, it took him considerably longer than “by tomorrow morning” to escape. But escape he did, unlike all the others who shared his dire situation.

Why did Dieter get home, when none of his comrades did? Because HE MADE UP HIS MIND TO. He didn’t take “impossible” for an answer. His will was iron-strong, and DEMANDED a release from what to him was an intolerable situation.

We all have the power of will, the choice of what we’ll live with and accept. If you can’t live with the New World Order closing over your head and drowning out your breath, then do something about it! Shake off the catatonia and hopelessness that threatens to swallow us up, and commit your will to taking action.

Those who determine never to accept fascism will free themselves from its threat. Those who say nothing can be done, will be rounded up or microchipped. It’s all in the attitude. Life has shown us that. You get to decide if you’re going to lie down and let the tanks roll over you or if you’re going to muster your grit, look for the cracks in the system, and slip out through one. You even get to decide if you’re only going to save your own skin or if you’ll take the human race with you.

This is an exciting time, a time of awakening. The unsustainable system most people allowed themselves to believe in all these eons is finally showing itself for the flimsy thing it is. The pain and fear this causes make for questioning in the collective. People are ready to consider our explanations and our solutions, if only we have the gumption to make them heard.

Handling Our Fear

A reader sent me this note today, and I’m sharing what she wrote along with my response because many people new to the conspiracy experience the same challenges as this young person. Feel free to add your own thoughts and suggestions in the comment section. Here is what R. wrote:

“I’ve only recently discovered this whole NWO conspiracy, and I’m sorry, but I’m terrified. Reading up on the inner workings of the Illuminati and their methods of brainwashing has shown me exactly what we’re dealing with, and I’m finding it hard not to be scared. The fact that I’m 16 means I don’t get taken seriously.

“Many people posting here talk about the universe and all this stuff. Astral projection gets mentioned a fair bit on other sites. There seems to be a very spiritual element to the Resistance that I can’t seem to tap into, and I think that if I could, I’d be less afraid. I’m Catholic, but you guys talk about higher selves and stuff. It sounds interesting. So what I’m asking is, is it possible for me to discover this thing that you guys have? Because I’ve been trying to do the astral projection thing and it hasn’t worked yet. I don’t know how else to get rid of my fear.”

R., I recommend you read David Icke’s book, “Infinite Love Is the Only Truth: Everything Else I Illusion” and (after that) Neville’s “The Law and the Promise.”

I empathize with how you’re feeling. I think it’s a stage we all go through in the awakening process. You have to be a little careful though, because fear can be manipulated. There are bazillions of spiritual teachers out there who will be glad to give you a ticket to a euphoric state in exchange for your spiritual sovereignty. Stay away from them.

You have everything you need within you to take care of yourself, because the Infinite Consciousness is within you, and it is all loving and all-powerful. In fact, it’s not just in you, it is what you are by nature, at your root. Your individual consciousness (what you usually think of as yourself) is a localized expression of that vaster consciousness that knows no lack or danger, because it is the oneness at the heart of all creation, a field of harmony where all things can be created or reconciled.

When you bring your awareness inward by sitting quietly and focusing your attention on attention itself (on the mind that is thinking all the thoughts), you focus on the consciousness that is the core of your being. It’s a simple thing, like being in a movie and shifting your attention from the movie to the movie screen underneath. You will slip into a deeper state of awareness when you do this, which is very peaceful and rejuvenating. It’s a way of connecting with your inner Infinity. Fear goes away when you do that, and things that looked insurmountable before appear in a different perspective.

The spiritual teacher circuit will tell you that to do this thing (which is a matter of just shifting your attention from the outer expression of who you are to the inner levels of yourself), you need a guru or a mantra or chants or a guide or some other kind of disempowering nonsense. It isn’t true. All you need is a chair, some quiet time, closed eyes, and the intent to focus attention on what’s behind the thoughts. It’s no harder than switching the channel on a radio. You’re just tuning into another frequency of your own being.

This kind of practice, which many people engage in for a few minutes daily (I like to do it right when I wake up), is very empowering. So is creating from that space, through intentional constructs of thought. You do this by imagining on whatever it is you desire (from that deep, quiet place). Neville’s book goes into detail on how to do this, as does my article Creating Reality through Thought.

When you get into fear, say to yourself, “I happily disconnect myself from all predatory entities, energies and influences.” That will help a lot in ridding yourself of any outside psychic influences that could be fueling your fear. Read my articles in the blog category “Psychic Predation and Protection” for more about this. There are negative beings on the astral level who look for opportunities to feed destructive thoughts into people’s minds, exacerbating their fear, anger, or whatever negative emotion they may have fallen into. Severing the connection by ordaining that they leave simply gets rid of them.

Ultimately, consciousness is creative, self-empowered. It (you) gets to decide what happens in its experience, and it creates new things, solutions, new experiences.

Consciousness is a force that cannot be killed or cut up. It is eternal. YOU are eternal, not just as the Isness at your core but in your unique personhood. God didn’t create us, or this world, so that it could be destroyed by Its more goofed-up children. We are in the end stages of the goofed-up children running the show. It’s a bit of a bumpy ride, but when this is over, it will be a different world. Ride out the storm, and when you get over your fear stage, join in the effort to save the human race from those who would like to totally enslave it. You do this by spreading information to help more people recognize the global agenda.

We are each expressions of God in this world, and it’s through us, consciously connected with God (the Infinite), that the world will be set right, perhaps for the first time in its history. Take heart, my friend. It is a grand adventure we signed up for, and we all are in this story together.


No Better Time than Now for Public Presentations on the New World Order!

Thanks to our reader Max for sending this to us: a new, wonderful “truther” video (25 minutes in length) that you can easily use in introductory presentations to the public about the conspiracy. View it here.

This video is free to the public and should be easily downloadable. It is an unemotional, clear summary of the global conspiracy presented without fanaticism and with a call to action. I recommend that fellow Truther activists take a look at it.

Also know that the David Icke bookshop, which ran out of the David Icke Oxford Presentation DVDs when so many of you flooded the website to order them, has more stock available again. This is an outstanding introduction to the New World Order in two one-hour disks. It provides an excellent core for any lecture you are planning (or to share with a friend).

There is no better time than now to schedule a public presentation on the New World Order. The public is alert and questioning, after this harrowing week in Washington. Every time the band of thugs that are working to rule the world makes another major move, it wakes up more people to something being amiss. They are then more open to new explanations connecting the dots they haven’t piece together yet. That’s where we come in.

Don’t worry (as I did for a while) whether you’re capable of doing a good job, whether you can reference enough facts, whether you might botch it. That will only delay your taking action, and we don’t have the luxury of time. Anything you do, even if you stumble in your words, will help! If you don’t have a reference for some of the facts, tell the people to look it up (to do an internet search for the term). Say “all this information is in the public domain if you research it.”

The truth must get out to everybody now. People are looking for it. No one can get the information out there but you. The fate of the world literally depends on your stepping up to the plate now.

And don’t give in to being scared! Realize there is no greater insulation against the elite’s shenanigans than strength in numbers. That’s what you can build in your community. One person who knows the truth amidst a crowd of the ignorant is a precarious distinction indeed. But a whole community full of alert and awakening people has a real chance of taking back its power from the big guys and surviving, even thriving through the years ahead. By spreading the word, with a message of hope for those who hear you, you will be creating that strong and insulated community.

Check out my article The Revolution Begins at Home for lots of detailed ideas on how to spread the truth where you live. The soil is fertile, plowed and ready. Now it’s time for us to sow the seeds.

More from Economist Mike Swanson

Mainstream economist Mike Swanson, whose article I referenced in a blog piece earlier this week, today produced an audio MP3 tape in response to the Senate’s passage of the bankster bailout bill. I found it well worth listening to, partly for Mike’s understanding of finance and his ability to provide an alternative view to the story the elite are giving us, and partly because it’s very moving to see a mainstreamer, with no prior belief in the existence of a global conspiracy, to move so close to considering that.

In Mike’s voice, we hear the voice of the people we Truthers need to reach now with our public and private presentations: those who are already starting to wake up. Like Mike, they don’t have far to go to connect all the dots.

This is an excellent tape to send to your mainstreamer friends who are trying to make sense of this historic week. Please note that it takes about 5 minutes (at least on my computer) for the MP3 file to download. Here’s the link:

Mike makes an inspired suggestion in this tape: that we phone not only our own House Representative but other Representatives as well. I would add to that the suggestion that we phone in particular those Representatives whom Obama and Bush are trying to sway to vote yes. You can get many of their names from the following article:

Keep up the pressure!

Keep Up the Pressure on Washington Against the Bailout

The banksters were defeated in the House yesterday on account of the will of the people, who inundated their representatives with calls demanding a “no” to the bank bailout. It’s time to make more calls and send more letters, this time in particular to the Senate.

Tomorrow the rich elite will brazenly circumvent the decision of the House and attempt to get the Senate to pass their bill. This is like a child who doesn’t get his way with Mommy and tries running to Daddy, except that it’s so much more serious.

Below is the letter I sent tonight to my Senators. Feel free to copy it and to send it to your own Senator. Phone calls are even more effective. I plan to call both my senators in the morning.

If enough of us do this, we will again bring down this bill. We are making history, folks! To get the phone number and e-mail address of your Senator, click here.

My letter to the Senators:

Dear Senator So-and-So:

It is imperative that you reject this tricky new move by the banksters to pass their bailout bill by going around the decision of the House, in direct and opposition to the will of the American people. This brazen and tyrannical move, by the elite who wish to control both the top levels of finance and government, is proof that we are closer to a police state than we think.

Whatever happened to that rule we learned in grade school civics, that if a bill is rejected by the body of Congress it starts in, it is defeated? Why can these banksters and their friends in high government twist the rules of our country, to serve their greedy purposes? What kind of republic is that? Or shall we call it dictatorship?

Their attempt to doctor the bill by tacking a puny tax cut onto it is like a swindler attempting to get a man to sign over the ownership of his home by offering him a cherry lollipop. The American people demand accountability, not lollipops. Let the banksters take their medicine and go bankrupt. The market will recover, as the 166 expert economists who signed a letter to Congress all attested.

Take a stand on the side of the people tomorrow, Senator. History is in the making, and you have the chance as never before to make a difference. Do the right thing, and you will be elected in again proudly by your constituents. Vote for the elite tomorrow, and you will lose much more than your career in government. You will lose your freedom to live in a republic where the will of the people determines the law of the land.

Your constituent,

Should We Make Marcy Kaptur President?

What an encouraging thing it is to see the House defeat the bankster bailout, responding to the public outcry against it. How heartening that Americans are waking up enough not to roll over and bark at everything its “leaders” tell them to do.

I read some dire prediction yesterday that if we don’t fund the bailout, it will be “an economic 9/11.” Well, that’s what it is, all right: the financial version of the nation’s biggest staged fraud. Another inside job.

And it’s not just the mainstream, down-home Americans who are seeing through the lies. It’s the traders themselves on Wall Street, telling people to call their Congressmen and oppose the bailout. It’s the 200 mainstream economists who wrote to their Congressmen declaring that Paulson’s warnings are false.

For more on this, check out mainstream economist Mike Swanson’s article, written this morning in response to yesterday’s drama.

And if you haven’t seen it yet, also treat yourself to Congressman Marcy Kaptur’s 2-minute speech yesterday before Congress.

This woman is incredible. Should we write her in on the ballot next month and make her president? Check out these other video clips of Marcy before the House, made in the last week:

Let’s Play Wall Street Bailout

Here is an older video clip of Marcy Kaptur speaking in the House:

Deceit of the North American Union

I’m serious. This woman is on fire. Should we write her in and make her president of the United States? We could do that, if October continues providing the national wake-up calls September did.

Spread Marcy Kaptur’s video clips far and wide, so everyone becomes aware of her brave efforts in Congress on behalf of freedom and truth. This woman is sincere, smart, a doer, and on the side of the people. She’s the real thing.
