Thought of the day 05-13-13

The system really has not served us except for the very beginning extending a bit into a decade or so after Independence. If we look around at how our nation has been served we can clearly see that only politicians, their families, friends and special interest groups have really been served.

When a system is created where only the rich or land owners could participate when only a handful of people fit into that bracket and having that continue until today I say it is a failed system from the onset, but that’s just me.

Are we to blame? Somewhat, actually for the most part. But it starts from our forefathers. If they had really taken the time to realize that what they were fighting against should never have made it into our foundation we would not be here today. People grew up with that system as being normal and it has become a cycle. You cannot make change unless you have money and we see that play out in how people behave.

I think this problem spans a wider footing than just politics tho, however I believe that if we look at any issue in Belize close enough we realize that they are political.
One of the main reasons things are the way they are is that people did not get the opportunity to lean their Constitution or their rights as citizens of Belize and still don’t.

Today we have learned people going round throwing legal jargon on radio, tv, in person and expect that people will understand. They literally use it as a tool to work the people to their liking.

Tho people are to blame for how they vote and how they think, this is the result of years of failure of the system to raise people that can think for themselves. The issue in my mind is this..

We have allowed ourselves to be raised an Ignorant, Complacent, Conforming, Submissive and Hypocritical people.
Yes I did.
– CayoBuay

The question now is: How do we change when the majority don’t even know their rights?

Until we realize that, accept it and do something to change it. Nothing will. And no-one can do it for you, YOU have to make the choice to do it for you.

On Gun Control

On Gun Control

Taking guns away from citizens will only give more power to the ones using guns for evil.

What is the real reason for the Constitutional Entry about Right to Bear Arms? To protect from Tyrannical Govt.. Read the National Constitution and the ones of each state… The spell it out literally and if anyone does not understand it they are quite honestly idiots..

Gun ControlIf there is a law that states you have the right to protect yourself and your states freedom from a Tyrannical Govt and Military … What do you think a Government trying to remove that right from you wants to do once it succeeds? Continue reading “On Gun Control”

The 7 Churches

Revelation 2

The Loveless Church

1  “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,

‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’

The Persecuted Church

“And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write,

‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”’

The Compromising Church

12 “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write,

‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: 13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. 15 Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”’

The Corrupt Church

18 “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write,

‘These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass: 19 “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. 20 Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. 21 And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. 22 Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. 23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.

24 “Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. 25 But hold fast what you have till I come. 26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

27 ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron;
They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’—

as I also have received from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star.

29 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

Revelation 3

The Dead Church

1 “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write,

‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

The Faithful Church

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write,

‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

The Lukewarm Church

14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,

‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’”

Brainstorming 1

So here are some of the things I’ve been brainstorming on for the past days about the road ahead in Belize… These are however, my thoughts only; they are not set to happen soon or under the current Govt but from the way things are going around the world I have been thinking about them.

  1. Continuation of what was started with the 8th Amendment
  2. Devaluation of the Bz. Dollar – Maybe other countries as well
  3. The end of the Election Process
  4. Trial without jury fully implemented
  5. Guilty before you commit a crime based on mere suspicion a la Minority Report put in place.
  6. Implementation of a mixed Police State / Dictatorship / Kleptocracy system.

There are some more things swirling around in my head but I have to give them some time…

Yes, Yes.. I know.. Before you post… These are my theories only, I do not want to hear your cries of “these are mere speculations not based on facts.” or whatever else you may want to say.. As I stated at the beginning of the post.. There are my thoughts only..

If I Could Change Things Around in Belize

If I had the authority to change it, I would make it something like this (Not perfect, but a starting point)…

  • The post of GG is removed. We are an Independent Nation after all and he doesn’t really do anything more than collect a pay check anyway.
  • Each Representative is voted as they are currently, by the people they will represent. They will be responsible for the positive growth of their constituency. Village Councils, Town Boards, City Councils will remain the same.
  • Each district will have an upper Ministerial Representative, elected on a District wide election; they will attend Central Government meetings and help to come up with policies and laws.
  • The members house of Representatives will be elected separately from the Govt and by the people.
  • The PM will be elected by the people, independent of their party. ( Sort of how the pres is elected in the US except for the college system)
  • Members of the Senate are elected by the people.
  • Our supreme court is truly made into the final law of the land. Why do we need to go to another country to preside over our courts?
  • Implementation of a NGO compromised of Attorneys and Accountants and other relevant professions. Members are rotated yearly. This Org will be responsible to revise any and all things that impact the country in any way and they will be able to enforce the law on those caught breaking the laws of the land. Govt policies, changes, procedures, etc. From Central Govt to doing random and routine security and policy checks on both Public and Private sectors

This will allow for finer control of things that go through the Govt and removing full control from one single party group, any one person and will provide for accountability laws to be put in place.

  • Local Boards and Councils report to their Local Representatives
  • Local Representatives report to the District Ministers
  • District Ministers and PM report to the House.

Implement a yearly review process for Government Representatives

  • Year one = fail … Politician gets a warning
  • Year two = fail … Politician gets a final warning
  • Year 2 1/2 = fail … Politician is fired and a new local election is held for the people to choose who they want to finish the term.
    • All parties will be allowed to participate

Granted this will need what I have been preaching over and over again, as have several other people.  We need a New Foundation on which to build our new house.

Ron Paul: A New Hope

Congressman Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital.

As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution.

In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535” on Capitol Hill. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.”
