What is going on with the people who want control of their government?
The photographs in this video are beautiful and the music by Doug Smith is great to go along with them.
It is nice to share something nice once in a while amidst the political havoc of the day.
We who live in America are indeed blessed with some gorgeous scenery.
I am ever grateful for those who get out into the wild to photograph it for us.
It is stunning to watch in full screen by clicking the little 4 arrow box at the bottom right.

Clearly his belief system is unconventional to a majority in our UNTHINKING government officials. How unconventional is it to the “average thinking citizen” on the street?
I suppose that also depends on whether that average thinking citizen listened to the skewed hypocritical media or what Paul has to say himself.
On one of the forums I attend every time Ron Paul is mentioned a virtual word skirmish erupts. Paul is a lightning rod that can split a cohesive conservative group into a warring faction in a nano second.
My curiosity suddenly got the best of me.
Like many of those ignorant on Ron Paul I paid attention to the negative sound bites spewed by Fox, MSNBC, CNN etc.
Silly me … I know better or at least thought I did.
In my opinion the best we can do is hit youtube and listen to the man himself.
How amazing it is that we can finally get to the bottom of what someone is saying and meaning (providing you have a quasi ethical interviewer).
I still do not know if Ron Paul is MY GUY.
It is still to soon in the game to decide.
That being said he is NO WORSE than any of those who have thrown their hat in the ring so far.
He is clearly more closely aligned to the average citizen on the street than many of those in the lead.
It is therefore no surprise his common sense mindset is closing the gap with the public who is drop dead tired of the “Same Old Shit”.
The rumbling on the “internet street” is fairly simple.
Wake up American Political Establishment … a 3rd party is likely to kick your butts into 2016 or NEVER AGAIN!
Ignore the voting public at your own peril.
The “tea party” is a “MINDSET” NOT A PARTY!
That MINDSET = MIDDLE CLASS PATRIOTIC AMERICAN CITIZENS!
I opened this blog back on November 18, 2008.
It was clear back then how serious the problem was here in the USA. I am not the only one who recognized the problem. There were many of us scattered around the states.
I decided to do what I could perhaps to simply vent my own frustrations.
My background working fields are primarily behavior, psychology which worked into political activism around 1995. With the internet I had learned (quite by accident) what a valuable educational weapon it could be.
It took me about 8 years slugging around in the muck and mire of liberal/progressive politics (I was a Republican) to realize how truly dense and corrupt a good majority of these individuals are. As long as your goal was the same as theirs they were your avid supporter. When you deviated from their want or need like pit vipers they strike to kill.
Many of them could not think their way out of a paper bag and could not solve a problem without someone laying out step by step details. They were indeed the epitome of what the Russians called “useful idiots”. As long as they had someone thinking for them they could in “mob force” follow instructions and get the task done.
So the antics we see from that side of our society is no surprise.
The Saul Alinsky method was something I innately understood from moving my own group of people to get a job done (before I ever knew about him).
With the election of Barack Obama I decided to wade back into the “political sewage” and make a stand. I knew there were others just like me who understood we could not do it alone.
But at least we could collect with the same thoughts with hope of protecting our country.
Then in the early part of 2009 along came Glenn Beck who started his “YOU ARE NOT ALONE” campaign. That began to unite the UNIQUE middle ground ECLECTIC THINKERS and the TEA PARTY started to spring up.
Here is the the beginning of that first blog post.
We the people have allowed our country to be taken over by a “good ole boy” system.
The majority of “we the people” are middle of the road individuals.
We are not republicans, democrats or even independents.
We ARE eclectic!
We take a little bit from here and a little bit from there and we become UNIQUE.
We are lumped into a few groups because there are not that many choices.
When we speak we speak with our vote.
Much of the time we do not speak at all.
We sit silent (the true silent majority) and simply allow the powers that be to run things amok.
We feel helpless to do anything about it.
That is the position we find ourselves in today.
ARE WE REALLY!
These are short videos from around the country.
This is a sample of the “UNIQUE ECLECTIC THINKER” who has a “TEA PARTY MINDSET“.
he or she may not be a member of the “tea party”.
They are however THE MAJORITY RULING PARTY!
They are MIDDLE CLASS PATRIOTIC AMERICANS!
I have heard the dense left forever maligning the TEA PARTY.
The ignorant clueless Maxine Waters just yesterday.
Note the woman who wants to flip the script to “What country can do for me and the people in this room.”
(I will spare you my rant over that comment at this time.)
These individuals fall into the category that I call “to stupid to recognize stupid“.
What they fail to comprehend is the TEA PARTY … is simply a “mindset“.
The TEA PARTY is made up of all colors and all political parties.
That terrifies to the core EVERY INTELLIGENT liberal/progressive.
THESE ARE THE UNIQUE individual voters who are saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
They have common sense and can more than likely balance a checkbook. They can recognize a lie when they hear it and are tired of both parties (Republicans & Democrats).
So every time we see one of these “gnat brained media fools” trying to malign the TEA PARTY … they are stupidly maligning the entire MIDDLE CLASS MAJORITY.
Take heart Americans when you hear the left going into a foolish tirade KNOW THEY ARE ON THE ROPES.
We can no longer trust ANY OF THE MAJOR NETWORKS to tell us who is winning anything.
They do not have boots on the ground and if they did they would not listen anyway.
China sold off about 18% of its US financial instruments, specifically their short term one year or less T-Bills. China still owns almost a trillion in US debt but it is clear that China is divesting in its holding of the dollar.
Combined with the highly leveraged and financially precarious position of the Federal Reserve we can expect that the economy to continue to deflate.
Why only short term debt? Easy to roll out of and get rid of.
I imagine by May of 2012 the Keynesian’s will understand that the fake growth is over. Maybe then they will have noticed the guy in the White House has spent 48% of his time away from the office partying it up with the rich and famous while the empire crumbled.
The following appear in CNSNEWS.Com
China Has Divested 97 Percent of Its Holdings in U.S. Treasury Bills
(CNSNews.com) – China has dropped 97 percent of its holdings in U.S. Treasury bills, decreasing its ownership of the short-term U.S. government securities from a peak of $210.4 billion in May 2009 to $5.69 billion in March 2011, the most recent month reported by the U.S. Treasury.
Treasury bills are securities that mature in one year or less that are sold by the U.S. Treasury Department to fund the nation’s debt.
Mainland Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury bills are reported in column 9 of the Treasury report linked here.
Until October, the Chinese were generally making up for their decreasing holdings in Treasury bills by increasing their holdings of longer-term U.S. Treasury securities. Thus, until October, China’s overall holdings of U.S. debt continued to increase.
Since October, however, China has also started to divest from longer-term U.S. Treasury securities. Thus, as reported by the Treasury Department, China’s ownership of the U.S. national debt has decreased in each of the last five months on record, including November, December, January, February and March.

Personally I am appalled at the coverup by the media of the black support for the “tea party”. It is high time this conspiracy to keep blacks downtrodden be stopped. I am even more appalled at the black leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who perpetuate this condition.
What most Americans both black and white do not know is FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE USA … BLACKS have been REAL PATRIOTS, SCHOLORS & FREEDOM FIGHTERS.
Why is this not widely known by EVERY man, woman, and child educated in the USA?
“CNN traveled with us on Tea Party Express, to approximately 40 rallies nationwide. I, a black conservative, opened each rally singing my “American Tea Party Anthem”. And yet, not I nor any of the other blacks on our team were seen in the CNN documentary; thus, causing viewers to conclude the Tea Party Movement is a “white thing”.
For the most part, the liberal media ignores black conservatives. And when they do interview one of us, it is from a, “Can you believe this stupid Uncle Tom,” point of view.”
