are more important
Podcast: President Mac
Corporate capitalism, with its basic tenet that profit is more important than you, has brought the whole planet unnecessary starvation, cancer, warfare, poison and pollution. The measure of success in capitalism is profit...not you. You are pushed aside. Under such economic insanity, you are subservient to business, corporation. From the abuse and demand of profit the inevitable poison and pollution of the whole planet was made.
To institute climate change reality measures to undo the pollution, the necessity is to institute a new economics. An Economics of You. You are first. It's your air and water first. Any business poisoning-polluting your air, your water is a criminal act against You.
In the new economics of You. Business, corporation are subservient to you. Business does what benefits you, what you allow them to do, what is environmentally sane to benefit you and the continuation of the planet.
The basic tenet and necessity of the Economics of You
is Equal Rights.
All of us need clean air and water, healthy food, and health care.
As all of us need these for ourselves and our children,
these elements are the budget both nationally and statewide and they are implemented
with Equal Rights.
This mandate repudiates America’s history of racism and its creating and supporting dictatorships, terrorism, and warfare.
From this point forward, under the legislation and policy direction of this mandate American citizens take back control of government and implement the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Remember, you are all members of government.
This is signified and a fact based upon your right to vote. You are voting for a person to represent you as a member of government. You are government.
You pay money into you. You pay taxes that come back to you as programs to benefit you.
Throwing out the corporate capitalism creed of profit at any cost,
We the people activate the first motivation of business, government, and humans as;
be a benefit to others.
Throwing out the corporate capitalism disaster of monopoly,
We the people of all nations act in cooperation to build and sustain the planet.

The 2nd amendment must be read in its entirety. It states: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed." A ‘well regulated militia’ has been replaced by the standing military. There can be either a ‘well regulated militia’ or a standing military but not both. A well regulated militia is to defend the State.
The 2nd Amendment is a threat to public safety. It is time to face the reality of what firearm access has caused and from the history of firearm murder and mass shootings each year in America, it is time to eliminate the 2nd Amendment.
There are currently millions of guns in citizens’ possession; no mandatory relinquishing of guns will be implemented. No firearms and ammunition will be available after the ending of the 2nd Amendment. Only hunting rifles and ammunition will be available under strict regulation. No military style weaponry will be available.

Prohibition is fraud. Under the fraud of prohibition, banks laundered illegal drug profits, corporations bought, traded cocaine, Ron Reagan funded his illegal ‘Iran-Contra’ operation with cocaine trafficking. Street gangs, international crime syndicates decided production, distribution, age access and contract.
Drug Legalization means we, the people, take control of the drug market away from bankers, gangs, DEA, corporations and we decide on production, distribution, age access, and contract issues.
Drug addiction is a health issue and not a prison sentence. Education on drug use will diminish excessive and uncontrolled drug use.
