We are a Republic embroiled in Political Eschatology.
Political eschatology, my definition, is our living of the last
results of our short history.
We are now attending our own wake and not realizing it. We
have denied our heritage for a secular lifestyle that encourages
community outreach and forbids individualist status. We have
been ensnared by multicultural invaders.
We have lost our passion for what made us great and
immerse ourselves in happenings that have moved the cellar
of human nature to the top floor.
We are on an irreversible course to disaster.

Some Thoughts on My Writings
I have spent much time in trying to fathom
the political world. I had a radio talk-show,
printed a smart newspaper called the

The state of our political system and the
impotence of our Congress is reflected in the
016 Presidential Elections.
It has become apparent that corruption in
our government has reached unparalleled

But we seemed to think we deserved a
payback for our sacrifices. Democrat Mr.
Roosevelt, a true Socialist, invented social

bridge the gap from employment to retirement,
it grew, just as planned, into the largest Ponzi
scheme known to mankind.

are considered by some to be outside the
authority of our constitution.

committees such as the Brevard County
Charter Commission, and The Brevard County
Citizens Election Study Panel.
I sought nothing but good government as
specified by the law. Unfortunately I met
resistance and roadblocks in every endeavor.
The most prominent common factor was the
political motives of those involved.
I was embarrassed to confront retired
military officers in public positions who were
pandering to little people for recognition of
their self-perceived great leadership skills.
These little people still exist in the public
domain, business organizations and political
My outrage was somewhat dormant at the
outset. I had never been close to political
animals before. I did not realize that to feed
these political animals you were compelled to
traduce the Rule of Law and, in doing so, you
became one of the “boys.”

Article 4 of states that “The United States
shall guarantee to every State in this Union
a Republican Form of Government, and shall
protect each of them against Invasion; and
on Application of the Legislature, or of the
Executive (when the Legislature cannot be
convened) against domestic Violence.”
Did not our Founders anticipate such an
attempt at destroying our Republic and
guarantee us that it should not and cannot
When the highest levels of National Security
are compromised, should not our Department
of Justice, our Congress, and our Federal
Security Agencies aggressively respond?
If this occurred in a Defense Contractor
environment immediate and appropriate
penalties would be enacted.
I learned that you can fool all of the people
all of the time. Half of our political spectrum
represents one ideology group while the other
half attempts to lead you to believe there is
another ideological group. The only difference
is one group honors a blue jackass while
the other honors a red elephant. Neither, in
general, honor their oaths of office.
However, anecdotally, it might be that
security violations and cover-ups may not
be taken seriously by our Federal Security
Agencies as a result of corrupt political power,
and a precedent is set for high level security
violations to be tolerated.

In violation of our trust they made politics a self-serving lucrative perquisite

In a betrayal to our fallen brave, they have transformed this Republic into
