JFK Explains His Vision of Liberalism~Accepting the NY Liberal Party Nomination

Standard

Acceptance of the New York Liberal Party Nomination
September 14, 1960

14890

What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label “Liberal?” If by “Liberal” they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar, then the record of this party and its members demonstrate that we are not that kind of “Liberal.” But if by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.”

But first, I would like to say what I understand the word “Liberal” to mean and explain in the process why I consider myself to be a “Liberal,” and what it means in the presidential election of 1960.

In short, having set forth my view — I hope for all time — two nights ago in Houston, on the proper relationship between church and state, I want to take the opportunity to set forth my views on the proper relationship between the state and the citizen. This is my political credo:

I believe in human dignity as the source of national purpose, in human liberty as the source of national action, in the human heart as the source of national compassion, and in the human mind as the source of our invention and our ideas. It is, I believe, the faith in our fellow citizens as individuals and as people that lies at the heart of the liberal faith. For liberalism is not so much a party creed or set of fixed platform promises as it is an attitude of mind and heart, a faith in man’s ability through the experiences of his reason and judgment to increase for himself and his fellow men the amount of justice and freedom and brotherhood which all human life deserves.

I believe also in the United States of America, in the promise that it contains and has contained throughout our history of producing a society so abundant and creative and so free and responsible that it cannot only fulfill the aspirations of its citizens, but serve equally well as a beacon for all mankind. I do not believe in a superstate. I see no magic in tax dollars which are sent to Washington and then returned. I abhor the waste and incompetence of large-scale federal bureaucracies in this administration as well as in others. I do not favor state compulsion when voluntary individual effort can do the job and do it well. But I believe in a government which acts, which exercises its full powers and full responsibilities. Government is an art and a precious obligation; and when it has a job to do, I believe it should do it. And this requires not only great ends but that we propose concrete means of achieving them.

Our responsibility is not discharged by announcement of virtuous ends. Our responsibility is to achieve these objectives with social invention, with political skill, and executive vigor. I believe for these reasons that liberalism is our best and only hope in the world today. For the liberal society is a free society, and it is at the same time and for that reason a strong society. Its strength is drawn from the will of free people committed to great ends and peacefully striving to meet them. Only liberalism, in short, can repair our national power, restore our national purpose, and liberate our national energies. And the only basic issue in the 1960 campaign is whether our government will fall in a conservative rut and die there, or whether we will move ahead in the liberal spirit of daring, of breaking new ground, of doing in our generation what Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and Adlai Stevenson did in their time of influence and responsibility.

Our liberalism has its roots in our diverse origins. Most of us are descended from that segment of the American population which was once called an immigrant minority. Today, along with our children and grandchildren, we do not feel minor. We feel proud of our origins and we are not second to any group in our sense of national purpose. For many years New York represented the new frontier to all those who came from the ends of the earth to find new opportunity and new freedom, generations of men and women who fled from the despotism of the czars, the horrors of the Nazis, the tyranny of hunger, who came here to the new frontier in the State of New York. These men and women, a living cross section of American history, indeed, a cross section of the entire world’s history of pain and hope, made of this city not only a new world of opportunity, but a new world of the spirit as well.

Tonight we salute Governor and Senator Herbert Lehman as a symbol of that spirit, and as a reminder that the fight for full constitutional rights for all Americans is a fight that must be carried on in 1961.

Many of these same immigrant families produced the pioneers and builders of the American labor movement. They are the men who sweated in our shops, who struggled to create a union, and who were driven by longing for education for their children and for the children’s development. They went to night schools; they built their own future, their union’s future, and their country’s future, brick by brick, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood, and now in their children’s time, suburb by suburb.

Tonight we salute George Meany as a symbol of that struggle and as a reminder that the fight to eliminate poverty and human exploitation is a fight that goes on in our day. But in 1960 the cause of liberalism cannot content itself with carrying on the fight for human justice and economic liberalism here at home. For here and around the world the fear of war hangs over us every morning and every night. It lies, expressed or silent, in the minds of every American. We cannot banish it by repeating that we are economically first or that we are militarily first, for saying so doesn’t make it so. More will be needed than goodwill missions or talking back to Soviet politicians or increasing the tempo of the arms race. More will be needed than good intentions, for we know where that paving leads.

In Winston Churchill’s words, “We cannot escape our dangers by recoiling from them. We dare not pretend such dangers do not exist.”

And tonight we salute Adlai Stevenson as an eloquent spokesman for the effort to achieve an intelligent foreign policy. Our opponents would like the people to believe that in a time of danger it would be hazardous to change the administration that has brought us to this time of danger. I think it would be hazardous not to change. I think it would be hazardous to continue four more years of stagnation and indifference here at home and abroad, of starving the underpinnings of our national power, including not only our defense but our image abroad as a friend.

This is an important election — in many ways as important as any this century — and I think that the Democratic Party and the Liberal Party here in New York, and those who believe in progress all over the United States, should be associated with us in this great effort. The reason that Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and Adlai Stevenson had influence abroad, and the United States in their time had it, was because they moved this country here at home, because they stood for something here in the United States, for expanding the benefits of our society to our own people, and the people around the world looked to us as a symbol of hope.

I think it is our task to re-create the same atmosphere in our own time. Our national elections have often proved to be the turning point in the course of our country. I am proposing that 1960 be another turning point in the history of the great Republic.

Some pundits are saying it’s 1928 all over again. I say it’s 1932 all over again. I say this is the great opportunity that we will have in our time to move our people and this country and the people of the free world beyond the new frontiers of the 1960s.

 

Thanks to PBS.org for reminding us of the Greatness our country should be aspiring, too. Open your minds and your hearts and let us change our world together, one issue at a time.

Christina Sarich: Successfully Overturning the Fed’s Hemp Ban: 4 Uses for Hemp

Written by Christina Sarich, Natural Society, June 17, 2014 – http://naturalsociety.com/successfully-overturning-feds-hemp-ban/Growing hemp without a federal permit has been banned since the 1970s, but regulations and restrictions on the sale of Cannabis sativa as a drug began as early as 1619. It is currently classified as a controlled substance on Schedule I, just like marijuana and heroin, even though you couldn’t get high off of hemp if you smoked a truckload of it. Hemp cultivation is currently only allowed in pilot studies in a few states as part of the latest federal farm bill, but its widespread cultivation in still illegal. Why?The Michigan House overwhelmingly passed a bill which allows industrial hemp research, and Kentucky got their seeds back from a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) seizure which took place when it was accepting delivery from Italy for pilot studies planned throughout the state with over two dozen different Universities participating in cultivating strains for commercial and industrial use.Furthermore, the South Carolina House gave final approval to a bill that authorizes the cultivation and production of industrial hemp within the state, effectively nullifying the unconstitutional federal ban. Tennessee also has a bill up for review, (HB 1392), which would allow hemp cultivation in the state. It has already passed through a House subcommittee vote.Twelve states currently have laws allowing hemp production via the farm bill allowances – California, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, and West Virginia — according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.Read: What You Should Know About the Hemp AmendmentThe Many Uses of HempSo why has hemp been banned all this time? It is simply a threat to oil companies, tobacco companies, pharmaceutical companies, alcohol companies, and many chemical corporations. Some have likened the nation-wide allowance of hemp and marijuana cultivation as being equivalent to an industrial atomic bomb. The plant is so useful, it could wipe out entire industries.Hemp can be used for so many things, including:1. Clothing and textiles – Hemp has been utilized since 8000 BC. It is an incredibly strong fiber which grows quickly and needs less water and no pesticides. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp, but this is often glossed over by modern-day government. Hemp paper could also replace our dependency on trees, and counteract clear-cutting which is eliminating our forests faster than we can replace them.2. Hemp can replace toxic plastics that are currently made from petroleum and contain numerous carcinogenic ingredients. Hemp bottles, for example, would be 100% non-toxic and 100% biodegradable, as well as recyclable.3. Hemp oil and hemp seed have tremendous use as both a food source and as a medicinal supplement; also as a form of fuel – Hemp oil can also be used in soaps, shampoos, lotions, and other cosmetics without adding toxic chemicals. It can moisturize the skin, be used as a cooking oil, and even as a biodiesel fuel. Some say that Henry Ford and the inventor of the diesel engine, Rudolf Diesel, never intended to use oil as fuel, but actually hemp. You can bet the oil companies have made sure that hasn’t happened.4. Hemp provides great building materials – Companies in the Netherlands and Ireland are doing incredible things with hemp. There is a wonderful video that explains how to utilize hempcrete, a sustainable building alternative to concrete.In much the same manner that oil companies have blocked solar and wind power, Monsanto and Dow have blocked organic farming and independent studies proving GMOs are toxic. Industry special interests have kept hemp from Americans – but no longer. We’re overturning the federal ban one state at a time.Other Popular Stories:Limiting DEA’s Reach: House Votes on Bills Allowing States to Grow Hemp W/O InterferenceKentucky Sues DEA to Free 250 Lbs of Impounded Hemp Seeds: WinFederal Customs Stops 250 Pound Legal Hemp Seed Shipment from Italy Due to Government OverreachWhy the U.S. Should Legalize Industrial HempWhat You Should Know About the Hemp Amendment, Even if You Don’t Use MarijuanaFarmers Begin Planting Hemp Under New Colorado Hemp LegalizationRead more: http://naturalsociety.com/successfully-overturning-feds-hemp-ban/

Go to FCC.gov/comments and pst your pretest to government interference in the internet. Keep Comcast, ATT, Time Warner, from deciding how fast you get the internet. We still have time to stop this! Do you want monopolistic Cable companies to decide how fast and who should have the faster internet? We all love to comment on the mundane things people are doing; it is time to put those comments to good use.

Keep Government and Monopolistic Media Franchises from controlling the Internet……

My comment and formal complaint to the FCC June 1, 2014:

I feel that it is not up to the government or monopolistic media corporations to decide how fast our internet is provided or what content I am allowed to view. We are not supposed to have monopolies and yet, it is tolerated in the US where media special interests are concerned;  especially when WE the PEOPLE don’t want any part of it. You are supposed to be our voice. So speak that which WE the People are speaking. “Its time for peace, harmony, and freedom of information…I do not want big media controlling my information. Corporations are not people they are ran BY people; humanity should come first.n Thanks for your time.

Please share and do your part to save the internet, and keep big media and government from taking our last freedoms. The freedom of information whatever your social status, should be the status quo….

Collective Evolution Article 5-25-14… “After The March Against Monsanto, Momentum Favors The People”

Standard

monsanto_march_against_140525This march may well have been another one of those “lightning strikes“. It’s clear to me, that these GMO “giants” are hearing (and fearing) the will of the people.

————————————————————————-

After The March Against Monsanto, Momentum Favors The People

It is clear that we have just witnessed the largest single worldwide protest against a company and their products. What is also clear is the major public disgust for anything bearing the words ‘GMO.’ Monsanto’s only refuge lies in massively funded mouthpieces in the forms of news clips and certain public figures, combined with a legal stranglehold on scientific research and medical inquiries. Yet in the age of information, their propaganda is laughable. Meanwhile the townspeople gather, having replaced their torches and pitchforks with signs and banners. We see this time the battle being fought from a place of higher consciousness. Our weapons of choice are the devastating methods of non-compliance, civil disobedience and free enterprise. It appears while the smoke is still clearing from what may be the final March Against Monsanto, momentum favors the people.

Tipping points are historically difficult to pinpoint or predict. They often manifest in the form of some event or consciousness action that ignites the minds of the public in a “now I can see” moment. During that exact second, and no sooner, a mass movement locks into a single idea that once cemented in stone, will never die. We are at such a point. The once obscured battle lines in the sand have now been illuminated with neon signs, doused with gasoline and set ablaze in our collective DNA. Into the future we march knowing only one thing clearly, genetically modified food will not be a part of it.

Years of brave activism and mobilized populations of unhappy mothers, disenfranchised farmers and educated consumers have brought us to this point. Surging forward comes the real work with instant rewards. Led by the recent examples of Mike Adam’s Forensic Food Lab and the continuous work of the Food Babe’s army going mainstream, it is clear that companies fear our voice and will instantly comply to the people’s wishes. How do we keep the heat on Monsanto? The company’s actions have shown us that their plan will move forward at all costs. So it is up to us to take the reigns and destroy their market share by voting with our dollars.

The Battle Plan

You money is your megaphone, your soapbox and your most important vote. This is a fact cemented in the pages of history’s empty political promises and arrogant corporate attitudes. We have always been taught throughout life that change would require a struggle. Yet, regaining your right to be healthy, eat healthy and live absent from the constant assault of weaponizied food is perhaps the most energizing ‘struggle’ you could engage in. Plus it’s a real community builder!

Know Your Farmer

Most independent farmers these days struggle to make a living unless the are subsidized by Monsanto, Dow, et al. That is why supporting those farmers that choose to ‘go it alone’ and use organic methods and non-gm seed is now vital. Learn who those individuals/families are and support them. Now is the time. Evey dollar in their pocket is one taken directly from the ‘GMO machine.’

Grow Your Own

This is the best option and truly gives a win-win. By growing your own you will knowwhere your food is coming from, that it’s organic, non-gmo and free. All are luxuries that are slipping through the hands of everyone on this planet. For the non-gardeners, gather neighbors and utilize the monocropping technique. This is accomplished by having each participant grow one crop. You can see in a neighborhood of ten participants there would be greater variety and more yield than any one individual could do alone. In addition, you only have to specialize in learning to grow and harvest one type of plant.

Keep The Social Media Heat

We have won the hearts and minds of the people. While plowing through this tipping point, it’s important to keep circulating information via all social media platforms. When petitions become large enough, the right people listen. Since our wishes have continually fallen upon the deaf, unempathetic ears of Monsanto and the man who calls himself president, it’s time to start focusing on smaller targets. Individual companies and suppliers can be effected. SubwayWhole FoodsMcDonald’sJell-O etc have all recently witnessed this first hand. Pressure put on them via social media, petitions and emails to remove GMO in large numbers will serve to disrupt profit margins, take over board meetings and steer internal policy. In a beautiful twist of fate, those companies then join our sounding board pointed at Monsanto et al. Do you think Monsanto could ignore scores of large corporations terminating business with it because they find themselves no longer profitable from a simple social media campaign or collective movement to boycott GMO’s? Game over!

Beloved Ones,

The changes taking place throughout the world are doing so at an accelerated pace. The weather extremes are affecting many people throughout the world and it is becoming clear that humanity must work together to bring assistance and resources to these affected areas and to look for solutions to these problems. The signs are clear that cooperation and good will are much needed in order for humanity to overcome these major challenges. Many people are being tested in the challenges they are being compelled to go through in their personal lives. This is a time to go within to the deepest and most spiritual connection that each individual can align with. This is the focus and the higher purpose of the tests and challenges currently being experienced. It is incumbent upon all people to employ the greatest force in the universe, the force and power of love.

It is during turbulent times that the power of faith and compassion comes into play within people’s hearts and this is what is needed during these times. The light within must be kept radiant and constant. Those who have been walking the spiritual path of maintaining and increasing the light quotient upon the planet are now being called into active service. By this we mean that each of you is asked to maintain your vision of the new Earth reality and a better way for humankind. Do not be distracted by the seeming appearances of chaos in all parts of the world, for it is during these times that the higher vision must remain constant in people’s focus and prayers. Your light is much needed and required. As you maintain and increase your own light, we of the higher dimensions magnify this light to help maintain stability and balance. We work together during these times of world transformation and transmutation.

There is a saying upon your world, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” which means when the situation becomes difficult, the strong will work harder to meet the challenge, they do not give up, they maintain the higher vision and actively work towards it. Those of you who have already been tested are now in a position of giving hope and upliftment to a planet in the throes of extreme and accelerated change. You have many tools at your disposal and you must now employ all of them to keep your light shining bright. Maintain equilibrium and a detached perspective in the daily reports coming through your communication networks. Look for and affirm the highest outcomes in all situations that come before your awareness and work the plan, the Divine plan that you have come to bring into manifestation upon this world.

Be steadfast in your devotion to the highest outcomes for all so that your brothers and sisters can feel empowered as they meet the challenges that beset them. Use all of your God qualities as you serve the higher purpose. There is always a higher solution to every problem that comes before humanity and these higher qualities of a self realized human can bring the hope that is sorely needed by those who feel lost and alone in their struggles. Let them know that all is not lost, that at their core they are intact and as long as they remain centered in the truth of their alignment to the divine, all is well in the outer happenings that are occurring with increasing regularity. Be a shining example as a loving goodwill ambassador. If you are able, give practical and capable assistance to those in your sphere of influence.

Riding the waves of change can be exhilarating and exciting when an individual rests in the knowledge that at their core they are indestructible and inviolate. Know that you, the lightworkers of the world, are an indomitable force for good and stay true to this oneness of purpose. It requires dedication and persistence from each of you now. BE the greater light upon your planet during each and every moment. You have what it takes, each one of you.

Until next week…

May 11-18, 2014

Beloved Ones,

For many of you these are difficult times. Your physical bodies keep going through recalibrations and transformations and the symptoms experienced are oftentimes not pleasant. There are many feelings of deep sadness that come out of nowhere and it can put you into a depressed state. It is important should this occur, to put a determined effort into changing that perspective. Do something that makes you feel good, something that makes you laugh. Get outdoors and dig in your garden, feel a connection with the Earth. When people feel out of sorts, being out in nature is very soothing, grounding and healing to their human operating systems. It is also important to examine your inner thought processes and change those that hold you in an unhappy space. It requires diligent observation to see and to understand that you might hold thought patterns that do not serve the person you have become and the person you are expanding into each and every day. The greatest challenge here is to recognize these ingrained thoughts and accept responsibility for changing them.

This is work that no one else can do for you. It requires your full and ongoing participation and persistence. It requires diligence, strength of mind and purpose. It requires a commitment to your self because you are worth the effort. Do not ever give up on yourself! You will soon find yourself back in equilibrium and moving forward once again. That is the beauty of life in physical expression, it never remains the same, it is always in a state of flux and that state can be used to your greater advantage. Ask yourself, “If my life was a book, how would I want my story to go?” Then set down on paper what you desire your life to be, every detail, every dream you have ever had that still has not come to fruition. After you have written down everything you can think of, look through what you have written and see if perhaps you already have had the experience and didn’t realize it and note those as successes in your book of your life. Then think about how you want the rest of your story to go and what you can do to bring that into manifestation. Keep this and keep adding to it, rewriting and changing as you go through each day. You are refining and polishing your characters and your story!

This is your template, the one you look at as your master plan, and you must work it regularly, read your words each day with deep feeling and sincerity to create the experience. Make yourself the magnificent, wise, intelligent, loving and loveable, and healthy individual that you know yourself to be at the core of your being. Identify completely with this you that you know you can be and continue to make the story come alive in rich detail. Each and every one of you has the ability to create the reality you choose and with concentrated focus and effort, you can actually live it. It is your story, dare to dream big and cast your character as larger than life, with magical powers and a magnetic, amazing personality. Give yourself supernatural powers that can assist and help others to see themselves in a greater light than before, so that they too, can be the author of their own life story. Become so identified with this character of you that any other option does not exist. This template is the new and wonderful you that you yourself created.

Keep refining and honing your character to be the best that you can be. This is not a story of winning a competition against another, this is a story of your own personal and individual life journey. It is a journey that can take many twists and turns, as the ‘you’ character experiences the reality that you are creating. Write about every facet of your experience, the highs and the lows, the surprises, the disappointments, the heartbreaks, the richness of experience and the insights that you were gifted with in each one. All of life must be experienced to be made a part of your story; it is the only way that is authentic and true. Write yourself as the master of your life, filled with love, wisdom and leadership abilities. See yourself speaking in front of many people with grace, ease and poise, telling them about your incredible life as you walked your path here on Earth.

Each of you has a great story to tell. Each of you has and will continue to experience, the wonders of life in a human form. The universe waits to hear your story about your wondrous adventures before, during and after the greatest shift of the ages. You will have a captive audience, wherever your story is told, of that you can be certain.

Until next week …

President John Kennedy Worried Over A Lyndon Johnson Presidency

Standard

14890Next week there is going to be a television special about Jacqueline Kennedy’s interviews with famed writer-historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.  In addition a new book is about to hit the stores that will renew the time of Camelot, and make for reflections on what might have been. ABC News’ Diane Sawyer will host a prime-time, two-hour special based on the tapes Sept. 13, featuring exclusive audio of Jacqueline Kennedy’s interviews. The transcripts are being released in book form this month in “Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy.”There are all those strong competing personalities from the past just waiting to have their voice made whole again.  Jacqueline Kennedy’s interviews might just do that very thing for those we either grew up knowing, or read about in history books.This is going to be very interesting.President John F. Kennedy was so “worried for the country” about the prospect that Vice President Lyndon Johnson might succeed him as president that he’d begun having private conversations about who should become the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 1968, Jacqueline Kennedy recalled in a series of oral-history interviews recorded in early 1964.She said her husband believed strongly that Johnson shouldn’t become president and, in the months before his death in November 1963, he’d begun talking to his brother, Robert Kennedy, about ways to maneuver around Johnson in 1968.“Bobby told me this later, and I know Jack said it to me sometimes. He said, ‘Oh, God, can you ever imagine what would happen to the country if Lyndon was president?’” she said.
