The 5 P’s Of Why Politicians Get So

Perhaps, the one – biggest reason, lots of people, have forfeit faith in this political system, and just how, elected officials, behave, and fail – to – achieve, is because witness, a similar issue, discussed, over – and – over, with, apparently, little – to – no, true progress, achieved, even, once the issue, is even, by far the most, time – sensitive, in – nature! Why do we permit, politicians, to resort, to denials, as well as other, politically, personally – serving, behaviors, when, now, perhaps, more – than – ever, we’d like these individuals, to proactively, go to a meeting – of – the – minds, to the greater good? Whether, the down sides, include, Climate Change ramifications/ impacts, protecting the surroundings (especially, beautiful and water, etc), improving infrastructure, or, various other issues, and urgent matters, we have to demand, no – more, procrastination, and several, wise practice, leadership, into – the – future! With that in mind, this document will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, what I reference, as being the, 5 P’s of why, we continue, witnessing exactly the same – old, same – old, behaviors, and tendencies!

  1. Political viewpoints/ perspectives: We cannot permit, business – as – usual, when elected officials, will not transform – themselves, from politicians, to statesmen, when they are elected! While, certain issues, tend to have a number of political options, alternatives, and philosophies, in timely – issues, these perspectives have to take a back – seat, to doing, the right thing, both with the current populations, except for generations, to – follow!
  2. Personal/ political agenda and self – interest: Demand, those elected, realize, it’s their duty and responsibility, to, truly, serve – and – represent, and protect us, rather then prioritizing, any personal/ political agenda, and/ or, their actual, and/ or, perceived, self- interest!
  3. Partisan politics: While, there will always, be, a point of partisan politics, because, a receptive – discussion, of options, and alternatives, is best approach, we should not permit it, to dominate, over using some commonsense, and doing, precisely what it takes, necessary, relevant, and, truly, sustainable, rather than letting them, make use of procrastination, and/ or, kicking – issues, down – the – road!
  4. Priorities: Instead of, having, political campaigns, which fascinate fears, and/ or, self – interest (actual, and/ or, perceived), we’d like to address priorities, proactively, sooner, in lieu of later!
  5. Perceptions: How issues, are explained, articulated, and communicated, have a big impact on the perceptions, of several! How else, are we able to explain, combating this horrific pandemic, to become partisan – political issue, rather then an emphasizing, on proceeding, using the best approach, to public health, etc?

Wake up, America, and demand better, more responsible, service and representation, from those we elect, to provide and represent! We can’t afford, the identical – old, same – old, politics – as – usual!

BIAS In Our Political System

Perhaps, as a result of some with the atrocities, in recent years, against, people of color, as well as the attitude, actions, and different treatment, given, the definition of, systemic racism, is now, far – more, widespread! Unfortunately, nowadays, many believe, long – standing, fears, and hatred, and BIAS, continues to be enabled, because of the rhetorics, action, and attitude, on the former President, other members of his political party, as well as the now – existing, make up, individuals Court System, etc. If, hopefully you like to remain, the beacon – of – light, to your rest from the world, regarding, democracy, freedoms, and rights, we’ve got to, now, now, do, everything, possible, to treat these challenges to, that which you have considered, as our Constitutional guarantees, specifically, the queue, with liberty and justice for everyone! With, that planned, this article attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, while using the mnemonic approach, how this works and represents, and why it matters.

  1. Benefits; beliefs; best/ better; belonging; bigotry: Since, our inception, many Americans, felt, the inherent benefits, stated in our Constitution, were the main element to our national identity, etc! Although, unfortunately, we have now often, witnessed, bigotry, rear – its – ugly – head, we believed, the Courts, would protect these! However, together with the change, created with the political manipulation, from the last – number of years, few feel confident, standing, Supreme Court rulings, along with the ensuing laws, for instance, Roe v Wade, are under – attack! We are witnessing, an unsafe degree of hate crimes, including, against, people of color, antisemitism, women’s rights, etc, clearly, on – the – rise! Instead of elected officials, wanting to do the most beautiful to make things better, lots of, have focused, on the personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interests, instead of, enhancing, the emotions, of belonging, to any or all our citizens. When bias, bigotry, prejudice, and hatred, are permitted, we risk these, becoming the revolutionary – normal!
  2. Integrity; ideology/ ideals; insights; issues: Many studies indicate, Americans now hold, the Supreme Court, at its lowest, a higher level esteem, etc, in recent memory! The integrity of a number of the Justices, along with the apparent willingness of some, to exchange, long – held, American ideals, and policies, using personal/ political ideals, and agenda, are dangerous to the present nation’s future! We need issues, which, challenge, our give attention to human rights, and equality, to, be replaced, by higher ideals, and insights, which consider, not merely, populism, nevertheless the sustainable, long run, future and ramifications, etc!
  3. Attitude; aptitude; attention; articulate: The politics of negativism, and polarization, have to be replaced, through an attitude, of realistic, positive, can – do, solutions – oriented, actions, etc! Unfortunately, this indicates, a great number of elected officials, appear to lack the aptitude, and skill – set, for this! Unless/ until, voters set out to pay keen attention, and understand, articulating messages, aimed at hatred, bigotry, and division, are, counter – productive, towards the national wellbeing, we risk, losing our national identity, forever!
  4. Systemic; system; solutions; serving: Those protecting a method, of systemic racism, etc, are, serving the self – interests from the haters, and opposing, the United States, states be, all – about! It is past – time, for well – considered, viable solutions, being, the core ideology, etc!

Wake up, America, and quit permitting, BIAS, for being, normalized! We must accomplish that, sooner, as an alternative to later!

Divide and Conquer

Divide and conquer-the oldest tactic on this planet. And look how successfully it is often used in our society. What after we recognized that we’re manipulated in this manner, and are also all suffering due to the atmosphere of vilification they have fostered?

I be aware that people often feel helpless-and that they can imagine some politician will likely be their savior. But that’s simply how we’re programmed with the media: that merely a superhero can help to conserve the day. It’s a tragically false premise-and then it’s time we awakened that the millions were have the capability to make the change we desire-energetically.

The fabric of reality-the quantum field-is essentially energy, and they are we. As energy, we vibrate at different frequencies: think hair band and the blues. Each component (person) on the body of humanity is triggering the quality with the whole, and what exists right now has been created from the fear, anger, insecurity, etc. in our individual contributions.

Can happened see: so long as we imagine that the ‘other’ will be the enemy, we now have something/someone to rail against. But we have been each our personal enemy-so long as we remain riled within, we remain embroiled in, and adding to, the miasma from the quantum. On the other hand, when we create peace within ourselves, we bring peace into our relationships and peace to the world. We, every one of us, is answerable to how it is ‘out there’- because we, all of us, contributes whatever we feature within us in the world in particular.

“Think globally, act locally.”

The greatest power we have will be the ability to transform our very own selves-which in return transforms every relationship, our immediate environment, and also the quantum. If we decide to turn our attention outside the national imbroglio and to cultivate, embody, and express kindness/cooperation/generosity toward people we encounter even as we go about our daily lives, not simply we feel better personally as being the energy of such attributes flows through us, but we’re going to inspire those qualities in the other and uplift the whole community. What after we all chose friendliness as being a basis for communication? How would that customize the atmosphere?

Think about it time just as one opportunity-an possibility to create a Global Harmonic. Imagine yourself a person voice in a very global choir- is there a quality on the sound you should contribute? Now think with the quality of their sound and attune your efforts field fot it frequency. Focus on maintaining this quality of your energy in your thinking, speaking, and behavior-this is the place where we transform the entire world.

Conspiracy Theories Attract Believers

Many appear. to become, bewildered, by how numerous others, accept, follow, and apparently believe, several of the many, conspiracy theories, which appear, in many cases! After, over 4 decades, of involvement, in political campaigns, this indicates, these non – facts, as an alternative to losing their impacts, appear, for being growing, inside their impacts! Non – believers of the unproven, often – far – fetched, ideas, appear confused, why these take – hold, and for that reason few, seem, ready, willing, and/ or, competent to fully examine the realities and possibilities, and select, instead, a path of apparent viable solutions, looking for the perceived, easier course, rather than the finest one! Conspiracy theories rarely make things better, but, rather, spend your time, money, and efforts, which could probably be, better – spent, perceiving and conceiving of, creating, developing, and implement, the very best, relevant and sustainable, viable solutions! With, that in your mind, this information will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 5 probable reasons, conspiracy theories appear to attract, far – too – many, believers!

  1. The Internet/ Ease of “access”: These days, you will find so – several choices, and places, to acquire news, it really is somewhat alarming, a great number of, of such, as opposed to being informative, and fact – based, communicate a communication, which articulates their personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest, instead! Especially, social websites, lends – itself, to unfounded, speculation, and encourages, conspiracy theories! In the past, certain news media, were considered, the foremost sources of our news, but, nowadays, when you listen, with a variety of news stations, even, the core – facts, are stated, differently! While, we all have been entitled to each of our opinions, nobody is, to our personal, selected, facts! What, ever happened, to good sense?
  2. Bias, prejudice, perceived, self – interest: Instead of protecting this nation’s basic premise, of, liberty and justice for those, we witness, a truly alarming increase, for doing this, selectively, according to bias, prejudice, and perceived, self – interest! Unfortunately, some find, they, advantageous, and rehearse them, to draw others, with certain biases, to check out them!
  3. Voting fears as an alternative to hopes: Unfortunately, lots of voters, base their vote, on fears, prejudice, and bias/ bigotry/ racism, instead of purer, American ideals! We need to emphasize the requirement, to vote, dependant on our hopes, to get a future, which protects the environment, focuses on the potential risks of Climate Change, and greater consentrate on public health solutions, etc!
  4. Populist politicians enable others: We are experiencing an interval, of near, historic numbers of hate crimes, systemic racism, and polarization! Unfortunately, a lot of politicians, never evolve/ transform, into, statesmen, and, rather then seeking the very best paths, both, inside the short – term, and also the longer – run, consider the path of least resistance, plus the one, which serves their agenda, rather than the nation’s needs! They use rhetoric to divide, and polarize, which usually entitle, and enable, other haters, to follow along with, and opt for them!
  5. It’s easier than finding viable solutions!: It’s usually, simpler, the culprit and complain, and employ some, unfounded, theories, than to grab the time, and responsibly, seek the most beneficial, most viable solutions!

If, we would like, better representation, and service, from those, we tend to public office, we should demand, real facts, rather then convenient, conspiracy theories! Wake up, America, and get it fast!

American Civil War

The American Civil War (April 12, 1861 – May 9, 1865, was fought involving the federal union (“the Union” or “the North”) and southern states that voted to secede and constitute the Confederate States of America (“the Confederacy” or “the South”).

Economic, cultural and political interests along with slavery, especially its expansion into newly acquired lands as soon as the Mexican-American War had caused friction between Northern and Southern states for quite a while.

John Brown

On the eve on the Civil War in 1860, four million in the 32 million Americans (nearly 13%) were black slaves living mostly inside South.

On the evening of October 16, 1859, preceding the American Civil War, abolitionist leader, John Brown (May 9, 1800 – December 2, 1859), led a failed uprising against slavery at Harpers Ferry as to what is today, West Virginia.

Brown was captured and in prison for treason through the state of Virginia, and hanged.

The uprising fuelled Southern fears of slave rebellions and increased the strain between Northern and Southern states.

Abraham Lincoln

Secession began after Abraham Lincoln (Honest Abe along with the Great Emancipator – February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) took over as the 16th President with the United States) on November 6th, 1860 because his political platform scaled like:

*Anti-slavery expansion

*His refusal to simply accept Southern secession from your Union

Abraham Lincoln was created into poverty near Hodgenville, Kentucky and grew up on the frontier around Indiana.

He was self-educated and became a lawyer, Whig Party leader, Illinois state legislator, U.S. Congressman and leader in the new Republican Party in 1854.

He became President with the United States in 1860 which caused eleven southern states to go out of the Union out in the 34 U.S. states in February 1861 to from the Confederacy.

South Carolina was the 1st state to secede on the Union on December 20th, 1860, as well as Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia (the western section of Virginia remained loyal towards the Union and began the whole process of separation), Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina.

Jefferson Davis

Jefferson Davis graduated from West Point Military Academy in 1828 and became a Southern plantation owner, Democratic politician and hero on the Mexican War.

He represented Mississippi inside U.S. House of Representatives and Senate and served as U.S. secretary of war between 1853-57.

Davis had become the first simply president with the Confederate States of America (1861-65) but were never acknowledged as a sovereign nation.

He was captured by Union soldiers near Irwinville, Georgia on May 10, 1865, imprisoned at Fort Monroe, Virginia and released in May 1867.

He died in New Orleans, Louisiana on December 6, 1889.

Key Border States

Key border states that didn’t leave the Union were Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri and West Virginia (separated from Virginia in the war).

These border states were vital for achievement because they:

*Had significant mineral resources

*Were major areas producing both livestock and grain

*Contained transportation and communication lines

The war caused divided loyalties inside border states and were scenes of brutal guerrilla warfare, where neighbor conducted neighbor.

Volunteer and conscription armies were raised and fighting began in April 1861 in the Battle of Fort Sumter in South Carolina which led to a Confederate victory.


The American Civil War featured over 10,500 major and minor military engagements between 1861 to 1865.

The Civil War Sites Advisory Commission recognized 384 conflicts as “principal battles” that have been fought in three theaters.

*Eastern Theater

*Western Theater

*Trans-Mississippi Theater

These 384 “principal battles” took place 26 U.S. states with Virginia (123), Tennessee (38), Missouri (29), and Georgia (28).

Significant battles over the Civil War were the First Battle of Bull Run, the Battle of Shiloh, the Battle of Antietam, the Battle of Gettysburg, along with the Vicksburg Campaign.

The First Battle of Bull Run (often known as the Battle of Manassas) would have been a major land battle from the American Civil War that has been fought in earnest on July 21, 1861 where Union and Confederate armies clashed near Manassas Junction, Virginia.

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1863 was the most significant battle on the Civil War and was won from the Union stop Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s bold intend to invade the North.

Who Prioritize HOPE Over Fears!

If, I have learned anything, from my, over 4 decades, of, focusing on several, political campaigns, it in all probability is, because many voters, manage to often, vote, dependant on their prejudice, and fears, they seem, unwilling to perform the right – thing, and, therefore, usually proceed, with HOPE, instead! Unfortunately, this fear – oriented, thinking, is, what I call, stinkin’ thinkin’, because, the general, philosophy, and mindset, is, at – odds, with, the fundamental, Constitutional guarantees, and protections of freedoms, rights, along with the core – concept, with liberty and justice, for many! We are currently witnessing, one of the leading political parties, apparently, focusing their attention, and efforts, on, merely, holding office, in lieu of serving and representing the very best interests, of all Americans! With, that in your mind, this article attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, while using the mnemonic approach, how this works and represents, and why it matters.

  1. Healing; head/ heart; humane; honest/ honorable: Regardless of one’s political affiliations, preferences, and beliefs, shouldn’t we demand, our representatives, proceed, from the most – humane, manner? This requires finding people, who’ll use, and align, both, their emotional, and also logical components, within a head/ heart balance! They must emphasize, healing, the wounds, created, through the political rhetoric, and sometimes, hatred, and proceed, prioritizing, being, essentially the most honorable, possible! This will only occur, when, starting electing people, who’re, truly, and consistently, honest!
  2. Options; opportunities; open – minded: How can we survive, in a very meaningful way, within a relevant, and sustainable manner, unless/ until, leaders begin, refusing to simply accept, merely, the identical – old, same – old, and don’t, think – outside – the – box, striving to obtain, an authentic, meeting – of – the – minds, for your greater good (as an alternative to partisan politics)? Only, when these folks, are open – minded, and consider various options and alternatives, picking out the finest opportunities, will this happen! Let’s say, no, to hate. prejudice, prejudgment, procrastination, and following our fears!
  3. Priorities; perceptions; planning: Pay close attention, as to what appears to be, any candidate’s personal priorities, and perceptions! Question, whether, someone, is capable, of quality, sustainable, strategic planning, and creating, a highly – considered, plan of action, to implement plans, according to hopes, rather then fears!
  4. Empathy; emphasis; enrich; excellence; endurance; efforts: Public officials must proceed with genuine empathy, and put their emphasis, accordingly, within a quest to enrich all of our citizens, and also the nation! They must seek the maximum degree of excellence, as opposed to accepting, good – enough! They need the endurance, to persist, into their efforts, regardless of the obstacles, thrust into their paths!
  5. System; solutions; sustainable; service: Blaming and complaining, and articulating a communication, determined by accusations, etc, rarely, make the desired results! We must seek, and elect individuals, who articulate a meaningful system, determined by viable solutions, and sustainable direction! Otherwise, these folks, is not going to provide, the quality of service, we’d like, and deserve!

Wake up, America, and realize, how we live, is under – attack, and now we must make needed changes, sooner, as opposed to later! Only, if we base our voting, on our HOPES, rather then our fears, will we start by getting to make this nation, whatever we hope, continues, standing – for, democratic rights, freedoms, etc!

Judge Public Officials

Instead, in the tendency, of voters, to cast their ballots, depending on predominantly – emotional factors, rhetoric, and empty promises, wouldn’t we be, better served, if/ when, we elected candidates, best – equipped, to handle the specific duties in their office, within a truly, relevant, sustainable manner? Wouldn’t it sound right, to gauge, potential, and actual officials, not – by their promises, and rhetoric, but, rather, with what they will do (or have DONE), and, where did they plan to treat our true needs, and priorities? With, that at heart, this information will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, while using the mnemonic approach, how this works and represents, and why it matters.

  1. Delve deeply; discover; deliver; determine; deeds; deliver: We should try to be represented by people, which will over – deliver, as opposed to, merely, over – promise! Only, then, will the majority of us, manage to discover, what kind, will give the best path – forward, consistently, dependant on the greater good, and prioritizing, a gathering – of – the – minds! We need officials, ready, and capable to determine, the very best strategic planning, and perceive, conceive, and implement, the top – possible, method! Judge these individuals, by their deeds, in lieu of their words!
  2. Options; opportunities; organized; open – mind: In most cases, there are other than one option, and/ or, alternative, and, it takes the top personal, to wisely, choose, which options, to check out! He must recognize, and take advantage with the finest opportunities, which, may, prove, and/ or, create his personal opportunity! This usually requires a structured, well – planned, strategic approach, as well as a willingness to proceed, through an open – mind, as opposed to, merely, the identical – old, same – old!
  3. Needs; nerve; niche; nuances: Nearly, every organization, has some, specific, niche, and so the right leader, uses the nuances, to handle both, challenges, and perceptions, inside a focused – manner! He must recognize, understand, and proactively, address, true needs, and priorities, and possess the nerve, and inner – fortitude, and strength – of – character, to maneuver forward, outside – the – box, when indicated, constantly expanding the self – imposed restraints of his comfy section, and then personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest!
  4. Empathy; emphasis; efforts; excellence; endurance; enrich; establish; esteem: We should, only, hold, any leader, in – esteem, when he proves himself, worthy, by proceeding with genuine empathy, and placing his emphasis, accordingly! He must ensure his efforts are according to excellence, as an alternative to settling, merely, for, good – enough, in addition to the endurance, and persistence, to search – on, when lesser individuals, will not likely! His main intention need to be, to enrich the group, and generate a system, which can be relevant and sustainable!

We must judge public officials, as to what they do, in addition to what they fail – to – do, and demand, they achieve, accomplish, and have DONE. within a well – considered, timely manner, precisely what it takes! Are you ready, for being, an even more – responsible voter?
