National Security

Others,

National security is not based on the establishment of a religion by the state. It is not based on the government’s endorsement of industries for war. It is based on balance with social welfare.

Ps.33:12
Happy is the nation whose God is the LORD!
happy the people he has chosen to be his own!

Isa. 1:16-18
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes;
cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice,
rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan,
plead for the widow.
Come now, let us argue it out,
says the LORD

National Security

Happy is the nation who cares for the poor.
Fortunate are those who correct aggression
in the accumulation of capital.
Just are those who stand against
crime of any kind; including high crime.

The sun shines down from heaven.
The LORD beholds all people.
The constancy of love expects
that we will see the light regarding justice
with respect for rights.

Salvation is survival with faith.
It is not the government’s job
to establish a religion for the people.
Endorsement of the industries for war
does not provide security
for the nation.

Salvation is not granted by the military
or the police force.
It is not earned by labor alone.

The eye of God is on those who have faith;
who show respect for the needs of others;
who are willing to contribute
to the alleviation of suffering.

Social security sets aside assistance
for those who suffer
from natural disaster, disability
and the inequity of the economy.

Spending on national security
has to be balanced by funding
for social welfare.

Otherwise, inequity is increased
by the aggression of
exploitative interests.

Our soul waits for the LORD;
our providence and our protection.
 
Our heart rejoices in providence;
the hope for our salvation.

Let the love of God be with us
for the welfare of all people.
 
We put our trust in justice
for security.

====================

Spending on national security has been out of control since the false flag event on 9/11/01. It is like a high speed train that is running too fast in a rural area. It is not secure. It is bound to lose control. It will damage property and kill people; the basis for having security.

Remember what Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger did during the Reagan presidency. He ordered the largest peace time build-up of arms in US history. The stockpiling of arms is not an end in itself. It is a movement towards the urgency of usage. 

The Republican majority in both houses of Congress during the Bush administration was thirsting for the opportunity to put the stockpile into operation. The stockpiling was the beginning of the conversion of the republic to industrial empire.

Electronic surveillance is not a minor issue in comparison. While the stated objective is to deter terrorism, particularly with the use of nuclear weapons, the ascription of blame for the attack on the US and the destruction of the World Trade Center towers; the Professor al-Arian case in Florida; the Boston bombing and a number of other cases involving the provocation of anti-Muslim sentiment have shown that the industrial empire is aimed at the perpetual promotion of hostility for war.

 Surveillance conducted in relation to the terrorism databank is not aimed at finding and stopping terrorists in advance of the act of terror. How is it that the Colorado killer escaped detection? Why did the Sandy Hook massacre take place without warning?

The surveillance is aimed at rounding up the usual suspects. Muslims are the usual suspects at this time. The covert agencies want to produce a cover story for the next covert operation.  We are literally being attacked by agents from our own government. 

The purpose for the attacks is to increase or otherwise defend the high level of spending on “national security.”

There is also the issue of aggression in convicting suspects based on suspicion without probable cause. The same covert agencies could shift the onus of horror to us with flimsy claims regarding the evidence that an American citizen is guilty of preparing a terrorist attack.  Sure. The reasonable use of surveillance can find statements that indicate preparation for an attack, but the war of terror has not been a reasonable enterprise. Has it?
 
We have become the Israelites to whom Isaiah proclaimed the need for washing. We have become the Ninehvites to whom Jonah proclaimed the need for repentance.  

 Citizens United, the Patriot Act and the NDAA have created a “legal” environment for aggression with weapons. The problem is that the laws are not legal according to the Constitution with the bill of rights.

Neo-cons are like arch-cons with a new way to promote the same strategy. Gliberals have the same agenda with a different party. The “agenda” is to control people with the fear of attack. National security has been used as the banner to achieve control not only over foreign interests, but domestic. It is becoming a runaway train.

Soul Asylum – Runaway Train
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDl3iUo__dY
Runaway train never comin’ back.
Runaway train tearin’ up the track.
Runaway train burnin’ in my veins.
A runaway but it always seems the same.

We have to oppose increased spending on national security for our security and the peace of the world. World peace is dependent upon our advocacy for social security as both a basic need and a counter to the obsession with spending on national security.

The budget has to be balanced for world peace. We need a public sector of employment to counter demands from the private sector.

Sensation

for August 4, 2013

Kingston upon Hull

Kingston upon Hell was Home
for William Wilberforce,
An Independent Member of Parliament for Yorkshire

William Wilberforce (1759-1803)
Abolitionist
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Wilberforce
http://justus.anglican.org/resources/bio/214.html
http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/historic_figures/wilberforce_william.shtml

Others,

William Wilberforce was an English member of the British parliament in the eighteenth century. He was a social reformer. He was very influential in the abolition of the slave trade and slavery itself in the British Empire. He formed a society of philanthropists. They campaigned for morality.

He served in Parliament from 1780 to 1825. He supported popular education, overseas missions, parliamentary reform and religious liberty. He formed an organization for philanthropists in 1802. It was called the Society for the Suppression of Vice.

He teamed up with the reformer Hannah More in the Association for the Better Observance of Sunday. Its goal was to provide all children with regular education in reading, personal hygiene and religion. He was active in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 

He is best known for his untiring commitment to abolish slavery and the slave trade.

He had experienced a turning point in his life during a tour of Europe in 1784. He saw a copy of William Law’s book, “A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life” in the luggage of a travelling companion. He asked his friend, “What is this?” His friend replied, “One of the best books ever written.” The two agreed to read it together on their journey.

Wilberforce embarked on a lifelong program. He set aside Sundays and an interval each morning for prayer and religious reading. He considered life in the clergy. He was persuaded by friends that his calling was to serve God in politics.

He said, “So enormous, so dreadful, so irremediable did the [slave] trade's wickedness appear that my own mind was completely made up for abolition. Let the consequences be what they would: I from this time determined that I would never rest until I had effected its abolition."

Abolition
http://www.christianitytoday.com/ch/131christians/activists/wilberforce.html
English traders had raided the African coast on the Gulf of Guinea in the late 1700’s. William Wilberforce was still a teenager. They had captured between 35,000 and 50,000 Africans a year. They had been shipped across the Atlantic and sold into slavery.


It had been a profitable business. Many powerful people had become dependent upon the trade. One publicist for the West Indies trade had written, “The impossibility of doing without slaves in the West Indies will always prevent this traffic being dropped. The necessity, the absolute necessity, then, of carrying on, must, since there is no other, be its excuse.”

The economics of slavery were so entrenched by the late 1700’s that only a handful of people thought anything could be done about it. William Wilberforce was one.
He introduced his first anti-slavery motion in the House of Commons in 1788 with a three hour oration. The motion was defeated. He brought it up repeatedly for eighteen years. The slave trade was finally abolished on March 25, 1806.

He continued the campaign against slavery itself. The bill for the abolition of slavery in British territories passed its crucial vote just four days before his death on July 29, 1833. 800,000 slaves were set free a year later on July 31, 1834, chiefly in the British West Indies.

The slaves in the US remained enslaved.
History of Abolition in the UK
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_for_effecting_the_abolition_of_the_slave_trade#Origins
Dutch and German Quakers signed the first anti-slavery statement at Germantown, Pennsylvania in 1688.


English Quakers began to express official disapproval of the slave trade in 1727. They promoted reforms.

A number of Quakers in Britain’s American colonies also began to oppose slavery in the 1750’s. They called upon English Quakers to take action. This call for reform was not aimed at abolition.

American Quakers called on the English to encourage their fellow citizens to improve conditions for slaves, to educate them in Christianity, reading and writing and to gradually emancipate them. This call was also directed to Quaker slave owners.

 The British abolitionist movement was pioneered by an informal group of six Quakers in 1783. The London Society of Friends’ presented a petition against the slave trade signed by over 300 Quakers to parliament yearly. They also formed a non-denominational group to gain greater Anglican and Parliamentary support.

The non-denominational committee had nine Quaker members and three Anglicans. It was formed in 1787. The Quakers were debarred from standing for Parliament as non-conformists. The Anglican membership strengthened the committee’s likelihood for influencing Parliament.

 Women
"Many women were horrified that women and children were taken away from their families. In 1824, Elizabeth Heyrick published a pamphlet titled Immediate not Gradual Abolition. In this Heyrick urged the immediate emancipation of the slaves.

“The Anti-Slavery Society had been founded to promote gradual abolition and though dominated by members with this view, who sought to downplay the challenge, a ginger group of members formed to campaign for immediate progress. The Female Society for Birmingham had a network of women's anti-slavery groups and Heyrick's pamphlet was publicized here."

William Wilberforce
Early Parliamentary Action
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Wilberforce#Early_parliamentary_action
The first meeting for ‘the Society for Effecting the Abolition of the Slave Trade’ took place on May 22, 1787. It brought like-minded British Quakers and Anglicans together in the same organization for the first time.


The committee chose to campaign against the slave trade rather than slavery itself. Many members believed that slavery would eventually disappear as a natural consequence of the abolition of the trade. Wilberforce was informally involved with the committee until he joined in 1791.

Slavery was tolerated even though it offended the innate sense that military technology does not warrant the ownership of one group of people by another. The abolition of slavery struck a blow to the economy defined by imperial conquest. 

People that had been oppressed by the enslavement of the conquered were liberated along with the liberation of the captives.

The innate sense of justice has proven to be correct.  It was the outlawing of slavery; the provision against cruelty in punishment; the provisions for due process of law by the body of evidence; the provisions for voting; and the provisions for citizenship that increased representation in government. It has been war and economic oppression that has reversed gains in the building of fairness in society.

There is one life to live in terms of individual sensation, perception and conception. The one life needs to be lived accordingly. Use it to love others with respect for yourself.

Sensation
from Ps.49

Hear this people.
Listen, all you who dwell in the world;
you of high degree and low;
rich and poor.

Wisdom will speak.
My heart will meditate
on the understanding.

I will listen to the logic of experience.
Truth will be set to music.

Why fear evil?
What does it do?
It seeks profit from destruction.
It seeks to rule by death, punishment,
threat and debt. It seeks to control behavior

Are the days uncertain because of
the inequity of those who put their trust
in their profit and boast of great riches?
Do the ways of these days require change?
Does wickedness pervade the air?

We cannot ransom ourselves
or deliver to nature’s God a price for life;
the value of life is so great
that there will never be enough
to pay for it.

Eternity cannot be bought.
Passage past the judgment
before the grave
cannot be purchased.

Wise people among the wealthy die also.
Like the poor and less educated, they perish.
They leave their wealth to those
who come after them.

The grave will be the dwelling after death.
Though they identify places by their names
the dwelling place from each generation
to the next will be the tomb.

They cannot change the experience of life after death.
Individual perception ends with the end of sensation.
Set your mind on the things that are above the earth.

The world turns. Air flows.
It goes with the force of the flow
but it is redirected over the irregular surface
of the globe.

Jet streams turn back against the flow.
Expectations change with the weather.
Inequity will be corrected.

Don’t be a hater.
Oppose cruelty.
Don’t resort to violence.
Don’t commit crime.
Don’t support war.
Vote for officials
that represent people.
Stand against the death penalty.

The imposition of death by human judgment
is only legitimate when it is known
beyond the shadow of a doubt
that the person charged with murder
is the one who commit the crime.

High crimes are worse than murder.
Wars of aggression and genocide
murder many.

Live for goodness in life
while you are living your life.

=====================

Care for the poor builds an economy that corresponds with the representation of rights by government for people with participation.

Bethany
Place for Care

Bethany is located less than two miles from Jerusalem.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bethany_%28Biblical_village%29#Bethany_and_care_of_the_poor_and_sick
Ancient Bethany was the site of an almshouse for the poor. It was a place of care for the sick. Mark’s gospel places the house of Simon the Leper there (Mark 14:3-10). Jesus received word about the illness of Lazarus from there according the gospel of John (John 11:1-12:11). 

Three places of care for the sick were to be located east of Jerusalem according to the “Temple Scroll” from Qumran (XLVI:13-18 ). The passage also defined a minimum radius of three thousand cubits (about 1,800 yards) around the city. Nothing unclean was to be seen within the limit.


Bethany was fifteen stadia (about 1.72 miles) from the city according to John. Care for the sick there corresponded with the requirements of the “Temple Scroll” (a stadion was 600 ft.; 180m. ; or 400 cubits).

It was located out of sight from the temple mount. It was down to the southeast. Bethphage has been identified with At-Tur. It was located on the Mount of Olives. It had a magnificent view of Jerusalem.

Mary and Martha of Bethany
http://www.missionstclare.com/english/people/jul29.html
Mary and Martha lived with their brother, Lazarus, in Bethany. They are mentioned a number of times in the gospels.

Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to him when Jesus and his disciples were their guests. Martha prepared food and waited on the guests. When Martha complained that Mary was not serving, Jesus said that Mary had chosen the better thing. (Luke 10:38-42)

Jesus went to Bethany when Lazarus died. Martha went out to meet him. Mary remained in the house until he sent for her. Jesus said to Martha, “I am the Resurrection and the Life.” (John 11:1-44)

Mary poured a flask of expensive perfume over Jesus’ feet about a week before the crucifixion. She was criticized for wasting that which might have been sold to raise money for the poor. Jesus defended her action. (John 12:1-8)

Many Christian writers have seen Mary as representing contemplation (prayer and devotion) and Martha as representing action (good works, helping others); or love of God and love of neighbor respectively.

The same kind of comparison in categorization has been seen in Leah and Rachel, the daughters of Laban (Gen.29 & 35). Leah was near sighted, but had many children (action). Rachel had few children, but one saved the family from destruction (contemplation).

Leah represents action. It is limited in the contemplation of concept, but produces many worthwhile results.  Contemplation produces fewer outcomes, but faith is the product that pleases God (Hebrews 11:6) Action comes first in responsibility, so Leah was wed before Rachel. Contemplation is necessary for improvement so Rachel was the favorite.

Modern Bethany
A Palestinian Village
In the Shadow of the Wall
http://www.thetablet.co.uk/article/11514
“The nearest point of entry into Bethany from the city is via an army checkpoint located in a gap in the 20ft high solid concrete wall. Young armed soldiers ask visitors to explain why they want to enter. They check passports and bags before allowing them to walk through a metal gate then along a narrow path bordered by steel barriers. Although the soldiers are polite, they are carrying automatic weapons and the looming wall and steel barriers together create a threatening atmosphere.”

Magic Show Visits Two Schools
http://icklematt.wordpress.com/2007/01/16/east-palestine-the-wall-and-the-tails-of-two-schools-but-the-same-story/
“Afterwards the boys crowded round and we showed them some tricks and they, in return, showed us theirs. One boy walked on his hands for 20 seconds. The boys obviously enjoyed the show, as it is uncommon for them to see strangers – let alone strange strangers doing magic, juggling and comedy. It is difficult to comprehend how disadvantaged these boys our by being limited to their ghetto home.


“The next day we visited a girl’s orthodox Russian school. They were a much more receptive audience and the rough edges of our show had been smoothed. It was a good school with high fees, but despite their relative affluence the disadvantages of lack of opportunities and opportunities are the same. The girls see little more than their school and home; even the rough streets of their Bethany are off limits. We are a breath of fresh air and some fun to lift the stress of their daily lives.”

The place of care with contemplation and action has always been the guiding force for building fairness in society.

Israel has been a place of dramatic change. The existence of the nation is a call to recognize the role that concern for the poor holds in building society according to the prophets.

The importance of security has been overstated over the last decade to defend the right to existence according to that which defines Israel as a province of industrial imperialism. 

Representative government with participation reduces the risk of violent rebellion considerably.  Social security programs reduce the risk further. When national security is overstated with crimes sponsored by covert agencies, the overstatement becomes high crime.  

Further, it is the reduction of the representation of rights to one group of the society that increases the threat of violence, insurrection or invasion.  The establishment of a state religion then, is a major impediment to societal respect for those who are not in the one group.

Israel differs from a number of “Muslim” nations that declare that Islam is the religion for the state. It does not declare Judaism as the religion for the state. Like many allied nations it suffers from a de facto state religion whenever sectarian policy controls foreign policy.

Israel has a president, a prime minister, the Knesset and no constitution. It has been used by the industry for war to impose tyrannical policies on allies in the western coalition, the US included.

The US holds the dubious distinction of being both the largest culprit and the biggest victim.  Our government has been victimized by corporate spending through Citizens United.  International corporations have expanded their power over government decisions. Our liberties have been repressed with legislation like the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act.

We have a history of struggle with corporate power. When industry structures government infrastructure to support their advantage to take profits from people, our rights have suffered as a result. The financial industry has had the most impact on promoting the industry for war. The old association of weapons technology and government has a new counterpart in electronics technology.  When Big Money gets its way in Washington DC, profits are given power over people.

The budget holds the greatest favor for the military and law enforcement i.e. national security. Having the largest budget for national security does not prove integrity in intent. Quality of life is not insured for the people who pay the largest percentage of taxes.  Threats are amplified or orchestrated by covert agencies in an effort to increase spending at the expense of social security.

The constitution with the bill of rights constitutes a plan for achievement. Having the plan does not prove accomplishment. We need to live for life, not attempt to rule over others with the threat of death or punishment.

Life is one singular sensation.
 “One moment in her presence
And you can forget the rest.
For the girl is second best
To none”

The life of William Wilberforce gives us an idea of how difficult it is to achieve progress in the face of imperial aggression. The lives of Martha and Mary remind us that Christ endorses charity in action for social welfare with contemplation regarding investment in improvement.

Live with love for others and respect for yourself.
Don’t incorporate yourself as an agent for industrial imperialism
or any other evil.

Salvation



Acts 2:41-42
Then those souls who gladly received his word were baptized; about three thousand were added to them that day. They continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.


Others,

Baptism is the rite by which someone is reborn in the Spirit. It is a reminder that there is a responsibility to maintain an open invitation to welcome others into the Church. The creed is the symbol for faith. It is a guide to Trinitarian theology.

The Eucharist breaks bread for communion with the Son. The words for institution establish the commemoration of Jesus as Christ. The study of scripture develops historical perspective for the community of faith. Administration for the community of people in different nations has adapted for the respective communions. Priests are pastors who are called to guide people into faith.

Maturity in faith develops morality with good works without cruelty towards others.

William Reed Huntington (1838-1909 CE)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Reed_Huntington
http://justus.anglican.org/resources/bio/212.html

William Reed Huntington was an American priest. He was the rector for All Saints Church in Worcester, Massachusetts from 1862-1883. He moved to New York to serve as the pastor for Grace Church from 1883 until his death in 1909.

He is known for his role in the formulation of the Chicago-Lambeth quadrilateral. The quadrilateral is an articulation of the four points for unity in Christianity. The four points were formulated in the essay “The Church Idea, An Essay Toward Unity” in 1870. 

They served as a postulation for Anglican identity and a basis for dialog with the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant communions.

The points were presented as a resolution to a conference of bishops in Chicago in 1886. The resolution was passed and presented to the Lambeth conference in 1888. It was modified and passed in the current form.

The first three points were modified.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago-Lambeth_Quadrilateral
The definition for scripture was changed from the “revealed Word of God” to the rule and standard for the faith containing all things necessary for salvation.


The Apostles Creed was added to the Nicene Creed in the second point.

The sacraments for Baptism and the “Supper of the Lord” were identified as ordained by “Christ Himself.” The words for institution were retained as a defining element for the Eucharist.

Adaptation is a key element in the fourth point. The local adaptation for the varying needs of the nations and peoples in the administration of the call to God in the unity of the Church is the basis for dialog between church administrations.

The call for unity does not demand the eradication of the different churches, but it is aimed at reconciliation from schism.

Church and state relations are such that too much unity in Church communication with political organization can result in dictates that contradict the human rights granted by God.

While dictatorship is not in accord with human rights and division in administration deters the claim over the highest level of government, the variants in organization are facilitating discrimination in the respective churches.

Catholics overstate celibacy. Protestants overstate marriage. Orthodox Christians overstate male leadership in church administration. Racism is evident as a byproduct of majority authority in lay leadership.

The call for unity cannot be answered with another form of discrimination as a support for the tyranny of dictatorship. The oppression of rights is not an acceptable by-product for membership in the body of Christ.

The reconciliation of schism is still advisable as an element in the redemption of the world, but the promotion of tyranny conflicts with civil tranquility (peace) as taken with respect for rights as an expression of the will of God.

Salvation is survival with faith. Faith holds the belief that we can make the world a better place to live. We play a role in participatory government.  We have a historical perspective that recognizes the importance of rights.

Salvation
fm Ps 138

Thanks will be given with my heart.
Praises will be raised like rays
from the rising sun.

Eyes will be cast down
from the brilliant light
that shines from the sky
to illuminate your temple,
the earth.

The constancy of your light
proclaims the warmth of your love
and faithfulness. The growth of
plant and animal life provides
satisfaction for basic needs.

Your law glorifies justice.
Your justice uses judgment.
Your judgment uses reason.
Your reason aligns with design.

Experience with education
from instruction, observation,
tests and experiment
guides us in understanding
nature’s plan.

When I call upon you,
you answer me.
You increase strength
within me.

Leaders of the earth will honor you.
The representation of rights
within the rule of law
will prepare the way
for respect.

Leadership will sing for the LORD.
Great is the glory of your Name.
As the sun shines down from high in the sky
to the ground, so will representation
in government reach out to help the poor.

Tyranny is not justified by the elements.
Cruelty is not the means to obtain correction.
Organization for construction, production
and the management of resources with labor
are based on the elements for design.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
faith keeps me safe. Hope is my rope.
Love is my stronghold.

 Causality will show purpose.
Life will justify survival.
Survival sings thanks for existence.
Love endures.

========================

The rule of law provides security. Security provides protection for survival. No one is above the law. No one has the right to play judge, jury and executioner.

The acquittal of George Zimmerman showed that there is a need to “Stand Your Ground” (SYG) against poor government representation. The SYG legislation was enacted by a supermajority in a state where the majority group is not that large in relation to the size of other groups.

The supermajority was not duly elected. Their seats were purchased. Vote manipulation was attained with the use of electronic voting machines. Seats were retained with the use of gerrymandering. There were two Republicans for every Democrat in a state where most are registered as Democrats. 

The supermajority has been reduced to a majority, but they still suffer from the same error in definition. They limit their representation to industry profit. This limitation sets the stage for another error; the belief that the majority is given the economic and social advantage in relation to industry profit. This was the environment into which the first major test for the SYG law found a dismal result.

The SYG law is flawed because it assumes that anyone who buys a gun will use reasonable judgment with it. Feeling that someone else without a deadly weapon is a threat is not reasonable. The claim that someone 27 pounds lighter was pounding the heavier person’s head into the concrete lacks credibility.

The audio tapes revealed that Trayvon had asked for help when he was being attacked, then screamed with fear when he saw the gun drawn. The testimony from Good and Zimmerman was discounted by the evidence, yet Zimmerman was acquitted.

Why? The flawed law was interpreted without respect for reasonable judgment. The jury rejected the body of evidence and accepted the theoretical proposition that killing was not murder for self-defense. The acquittal displayed poor judgment. The judgment lacked reasonable recognition of a life threatening situation.

This lack of validity in inductive reasoning reflected the influence of people who were brainwashed into believing that an elitist government empowers members of the majority group to define authority in the rule of law as limited to persons in the largest group. 

This false reasoning is based on the misunderstanding of what democracy is. When the definition of democracy is limited to “majority rule” in terms of the largest group, an environment for abuse is established. 

Democracy has constitutional representation for rights so we do not reduce ourselves to the representation of the largest group. Rights protect majority rule in relation to the largest majority: the entire group.  

Support government that represents all people, including the poor.

Don't limit representation to industry profit.

When unfair standards in interpretation are applied to flawed laws, it's time to elect a new government. How do we insure fairness in voting practices? We need to outlaw vote manipulation in general and electronic voting machines in particular.

A representative government has to be in place to accomplish this legislatively. We can hope for an election win with the sheer weight of numbers in opposition to the poverty in representation, but we need the help of law enforcement to accomplish improvement.  
 The use of early voting ballots is advisable. These ballots are scanned. They are the paper trail should a recount be requested.

The military in Egypt came to the aid of the people there when they protested. Egypt is just one country in the Middle East that gives us a reason to reflect on democracy and the importance of representing rights. Islam is the majority religion in Egypt.

Even though the Muslim brotherhood and the affiliated Islamists put a provision for freedom of religion in the constitution, it was not representative of equal rights.

The provision favored Islam; leaving the Muslim brotherhood with special favor. It was political documentation that laid claim to freedom for the trivialization of rights. Rights for minority groups have to be protected from the abuse of majority authority by law or the largest group will attempt to hold an indefinite amount of power over others.

Rep. Mike Rogers Proposes Continued Support for Egyptian Military
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/7/rep-mike-rogers-egyptian-military-deserves-continu/?page=all
Rep. Mike Rogers said Sunday that the Egyptian military is a stabilizing force and should continue to receive U.S. aid, despite its role in deposing a democratically elected government.”


What else does this say to Americans in Florida? Protest. Protest can accomplish change. Treat partisan claims with skepticism. Complain about flawed laws and poverty in representation.

We don't want dictatorship for corporate profit. It is not in the interest of the people. Cash flow is restricted in a way that harms too many.  We want government that represents rights for people!

The continuation of the “trickle down” economy makes things go slow for those of us with a low cash flow. The cash flow for the upper class on the other hand is like a freight train running out of control.  The speed is so fast, the train is bound to run off the tracks.
