Treyvon Martin would still be alive

... if he had looked like this on the day that he died.

(This isn't Treyvon.)

Instead of like this.

This IS Treyvon, showing his anger.

The first young man ISN'T showing any anger, probably because he doesn't have any.

If I was Treyvon's father, I wish I had raised the first young man instead of the second one,

because the first young man is still alive.

Why I am a Republican, by Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory

In his own words

These are some of his reasons for making the decision that was very easy for him to make.

In this video, he says that others have called it a "bold decision", but it wasn't very bold for him because he had so many reasons to make the switch.

Note: State Senator Guillory mentions race in this video, but because I do not believe in the concept, I will not mention any colors that represent the mythical idea of races.

In the order that he mentions them in the video:
  1. The Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement.
  2. The Republican Party believes that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.
  3. Frederick Douglas called Republicans "the party of freedom and progress".
  4. The first Republican President was the author of the Emancipation Proclamation.
  5. Republicans in Congress authored the 13th, 14th, and 15th, Amendments to the Constitution, giving former slaves citizenship,voting rights, and due process of law.
  6. Democrats were the party of Jim Crow.
  7. Democrats defended the rights of slave owners.
  8. Republican President Dwight Eisenhower championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which was filibustered by Democrats in the Senate.
  9. At the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans.
  10. The left is only concerned with one thing - control, and they disguise this control as charity.
  11. The idea that anyone needs the government to get ahead in life is despicable.
  12. This idea is a failure.  Our communities are just as poor as they have always been.  Our schools continue to fail children.  Our prisons are filled with young men who should be at home being fathers.
  13. Our self-initiative and self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for our allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.
  14. Sometimes, I wonder if the word "freedom" is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.  Freedom is the idea that the economy must be free of government persuasion, the idea that the press must remain free of government intrusion, and it's the idea that the e-mails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure.  It's the idea that parents must be the decision-makers in regards to their children's education, not some government bureaucrat.  Most importantly, it's the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own efforts, free from government dependence and free from government control.  To be truly free is to be reliant on no one, other than the author of our destiny (he pointed to heaven).

"Please join with me in abandoning the government plantation and the party of disappointment, so that we can echo the words of one Republican leader, who famously said,
"Free at last, free at last.  Thank God Almighty, we are free at last".

- Elbert Guillory, who represents Louisiana's 24th District in their State Senate.

Who will be my 100th Twitter follower?

I am writing a new essay.  It will accuse Barak Hussein Obama of being a traitor to the United States, a bigger public enemy than any person on the F.B.I.'s "Ten Most Wanted List".  This essay will include evidence of the crime.

This is a very serious matter.  The U.S. Constitution allows for certain government officials to be impeached for "high crimes and misdemeanors" by the U.S. House of Representatives and then convicted by the U.S. Senate.  Any government official, including the President of the United States, who is impeached and convicted, automatically loses his job.

The Constitution names two crimes explicitly that can be used to impeach and convict those government officials and thus remove them from their jobs.

Those two crimes are treason and bribery.

I have decided to hold a contest.  The winner will have 24-hour exclusive access to this essay.

The contest rules

Up until now, all the essays that I have written, for any of my four blogs, have been available to the eyes and ears of the general public.  For the first time ever, I will change this policy.

In order to be this person:
  1. you can not already be one of my Twitter followers
  2. you must be a subscriber to my "Conserving the Nation" blog, and
  3. when my Twitter account has 99 followers, you must be the first person who becomes a new follower.  You will be my 100th Twitter follower.

The prize

The winner will see my new essay about Presidential treason 24 hours before anyone else (with the possible exception of some Google administrators and the National Security Agency).

To enter this contest:

  1. subscribe to this blog, (there is no cost)
  2. if you haven't already, sign up for a Twitter account,
  3. study the number of followers on my Twitter account (@BennyTheKite)
  4. When I have 99 followers, become a new follower and send my Twitter account a tweet that names your Google ID.

The first new Twitter follower after that date wins this contest.  I will then publish my new essay, but I will only name one person's Google account as being eligible to read it - the person who became my 100th Twitter follower.

Twenty-four hours later, I will re-publish the essay and allow everybody to read it.

About me

I am the author of four blogs.  One subscription allows you to read everything I write on any of them.
  • Conserving the Nation (begun in June 2012) conservative politics and fiscally responsible economics
  • I have to say this (begun in July 2012) a variety of topics
