In the summer of 2012 I became actively involved in seeking to right a wrong. I was hopeful that my efforts would result in bringing about a simple correction to a ballot issue that purposely misled the electorate. With my attempt to stop the hand of tyranny out in the open and in the faces of the tyrants, I quickly learned that the level of arrogant action by certain elected representatives was beyond my wildest dreams. I was in the twilight zone of El Paso County and fighting to shine a light of truth on their actions.
I was compelled, as I have been all of my life, to seek the truth in all things. I question everything; it’s in my DNA. My task that I took to the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners (EPC –BOCC) was to ask them to correct their error in the language on a ballot issue to insure that “we the people” would be justly served. A simple request that amounted to good leadership making the right decisions for the right reasons was all I was seeking. Instead, “we the people” were left to be slaughtered by the majority vote from the oligarchs that currently control the EPC-BOCC.
The election results of 6 November 2012 brought forth reduced term limits to County elected seats. Three terms back to two terms. Those same election results on that ballot question due to four words, “after November 6th 2012” guaranteed that those in power would be exempt from what turned out to be a 3 to 1 mandate by the people. The oligarchs proved that they were hubris infected politicians drunk on power and that we the people best kneel to them and kiss their rings.
This type of behavior from people in power is incredibly common in human history. Our founders knew this quite well and our Republic has been waging a war with this tyranny from the signing of the Declaration of Independence forward. Knowing this, it is up to us to question and hold accountable our leadership and elected officials and representatives. Doing this is our responsibility in keeping liberty’s light shining across the land and tyranny’s darkness at bay.
I share this with you as a reminder that this county is under siege and it is up to us to help correct the wrongs, hold our elected officials accountable and end all potential for corruption and tyranny.
Recently, I have been involved in seeking the truth and answers to two simple questions regarding a policy that reeks of corruption and potential tyranny. I’ll share with you the policy in question, my query of such, the County’s legal response and the silence there after in my next posts.
Below you will find a YouTube link of my plea to the EPC-BOCC on Election Day of 2012, simply asking them to do what is right and to honor the will of the people that they serve.
