Here is an “open letter” that I sent to a list of friends today… Read on! :
Subject: Fwd: Share your letter to Congress with your friends
Date: 3/19/2013 10:51 AM
Yes, this is “out of the blue!” and so feel free to delete!
I’m forwarding you a copy of a letter that I sent today to my “congress critters” – my “representative” in congress and “my” two US senators from California.
The cool thing is, it only took me about two minutes – literally! – to send this to all three of them! I used the facilities of
to send this letter. And, no, in this instance, I did not write the letter – it was composed by one of their “resident geniuses,” James Wilson. This group, Downsize DC, is truly a work of real genius! They have continuously been refining their presentations and perspectives on government, and are doing some amazing things to help people “break out of the mold” of stunted thinking about politics and government! I could hardly be more excited or approving of what they are doing!
In any case, I hope that if you should have a few minutes today, you’ll read the letter – below my signature lines – and think about what it has to say! I am also going to post this to my blog at http://blog.truthrealm.com .
I would also be quite pleased if you were to visit Downsize DC on the web, and consider joining the group – absolutely free! – and doing two things;
- Learning from these very bright folk – Jim Babka, Perry Willis, James Wilson, and other contributors – and also
- Participating with a large and growing number of citizens who are intentionally withdrawing their support from the crooked “leaders” who purport to represent us, but who instead commit egregious crimes in our name.
If you’ve read this far, Thank You! I’d love to discuss with you sometime the illusions we have all had pressed on us in our society, our churches, our families and communities, because these illusions are truly devastating to our lives! If we could only become aware of how “they” fool us into violating the golden rule, our neighbors, our families, and our children and grandchildren would be far better off!
I am pretty sure you already realize that there is something seriously wrong with America… Can we talk about it, and perhaps find a way to help you put your finger on just what it is?
Love and blessings!,
PS I also thought the DDC “Quote of the Day” quite interesting!:
*Quote of the Day:* “We should distinguish at this point between ‘government’ and ‘state’ …
A government is the consensual organization by which we adjudicate disputes, defend our rights, and provide for certain
common needs … A state on the other hand, is a coercive organization asserting or enjoying a monopoly over the use of physical force in some geographic area and exercising power over its subjects.”

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
Subject: Cap The Debt!
Do NOT raise the debt ceiling ever again.
Did you know a recent poll shows… (http://bit.ly/15Kfnyw)
- 74 percent of Americans don’t trust you to make the right decisions.
- 53 percent say government is a threat to Americans’ rights and freedoms.
This means… … we don’t believe you’re really “governing” with our consent. You’re not serving us. After all, what kind of government…
- attacks countries that never threatened us?
- arms and funds murderous dictators in some countries, plus gangster-ish and extremist rebels in others?
- claims power to murder and kidnap? Or that…
- imprisons the non-violent?
- prohibits voluntary purchases between willing providers and customers?
- steals our land and possessions without due process of law? And that…
- steals our money to reward bailouts, subsidies, and contracts to cronies?
- destroys our savings and make us dependent on welfare and medical schemes?
- meddles in individual and family life, leading to bitter cultural disputes?
What do you call an institution that does all of that while saddling the people with ever-growing public debt? Doesn’t this sound like a ruthless, corrupt, Leviathan State?
I’m not being “governed.” I’m being RULED! Slavery is the condition of those who are ruled!
I want you to take steps to act like a REAL government for a change. One that SERVES us with our CONSENT. That’s why I demand that you… REFUSE TO RAISE THE DEBT CEILING.
This means… you would have a balanced budget and no more new debt, but you would have to cut back on the evil things described above. You can still achieve this while keeping commitments to those dependent on you.
Stop ruling us. Start serving us. Or we the people will look for peaceful ways to alter or abolish this Leviathan State.
Mr. Dann McCreary

Maybe it’s real; maybe it’s just wishful thinking…
I have long been strongly drawn to audacious efforts to break out of the current world communication and financial paradigms. Here is one that sure looks good to me at first blush: Bit Billions.
Imagine an internet that *cannot be shut down* by the arbitrary whims of centralized power. An internet that is based on purely peer to peer connections among computers owned by millions of users. Imagine cell phone like services that are provided freely to all users. Imagine using the net anonymously without having your every keystroke recorded in some massive federal database. This is certainly an admirable dream, and would surely offer many advantages over the present system.
But don’t just say “Ho, hum…” and go on your way with only the few words I’ve mentioned here… have a look for yourself! Just click through to Bit Billions right here and read all about it!
Now try to imagine having had founders stock in, say, facebook… Who knows; perhaps you’ll decide to get in on the ground floor of the Next Big Thing?
I hope you’ll take a few minutes today to hear what Shepherd Chuck Baldwin has to say about civil government. In all seriousness, please just click on the image below; if you listen for only five minutes, you will hear the core import of this hard-hitting message about the Christian’s responsibility towards civil government.
Romans 13 and the proper jurisdiction of government has been so widely misconstrued by so many churches that the plain, simple, clear meaning sounds almost foreign in most ears.
Don’t remain in the dark about this! I’ll leave you with my simple paraphrase of Romans 13:1:
“Everyone, from the highest official to the lowest peasant, must be in submission to the Higher Powers – namely, God and His word. Apart from God, there is no other authority, and any so-called authority that departs from His precepts is of none authority!”
Friend, do you pride yourself in being a reasonable, moral, rational human being? Are you someone who thinks for yourself, someone who gives your neighbor the same “benefit of the doubt” that you would wish for yourself? Really?
The reality is that you (along with 300+ million other Americans!) have undoubtedly been conditioned by society, by your training in public school, by your preacher man pontificating from his government 501-C-3 corporation “church” pulpit, by your neighbor, by your TV newsman, by your newspaper reporter, by your magazine column writer, by your accountant, by your priest, by your buddy at the office, by your…
I could go on and on… YOU have been “conditioned” to give “the government” all the benefit of the doubt. Do you doubt me? If so, try this short test… Read more
What ever happened to the American Dream?
Surely you’ve heard of it… Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness… in it’s simplest form, 2.4 kids, owning a house in the suburbs, running a prosperous business or working in a profession of your choosing. Building a nest-egg for retirement and having something left over to hand down to your children?
The American Dream is a far cry from the sad reality of today… a reality in which, typically, both spouses working, retirement age keeps going up. Millions of homes are in foreclosure. Taxes are spiraling out of control… What became of the dream? Read more
