I want to take more into my hands, or at least the few things that I can manage, into my hands, like moving out. I believe it is about that time, although others may say it is already past due. They are probably right, and I can already feel my spirit and my destiny relaxing at the thought of finally being on my own. I have much to do and accomplish, there are just too many distractions in the way. Living with family is wonderful don’t get me wrong — it’s beautiful and if I could I’d do it forever — as I once thought I could, but as I’ve learned lately this option is not only impossible, it is unnatural, it is harmful, it is foolish. I need to enjoy the life I imagine, because the way I’m living now has got me constantly looking for happiness in pointless things, things that do nothing for me spiritually and even physically. I want to live with my friends, I want to start making good money, and I want to indulge my wishes, from traveling America and the whole world to little things like going out whenever I want wherever without having to answer to anyone. I’ve deprived myself of this for quite some time now and I think it has taken its toll already, so I cannot wait much longer. The question is: what will I pursue for my livelihood? The answer? I already know it. It is just gathering the courage to acting upon it once and for all. Either that or I’m completely detached and I need to be more practical. There is always my original plan, the academic and political one, which originally I believed was my destiny, but I have many reservations here too. What will I do? Lord Knows.

What I’m Learning


Take matters into your own hands.

Capitalism, Conservatism & God: Just Words!


Despite repeated attempts to portray itself as such, the conservative ideology is not representative of the opinions of people of faith. This distinction, between conservatives and believers, must be made clear, in my opinion, as its ambiguity is part of the reason why Republicans garner American votes — the misconception that being a believer in God or subscribing to a faith suggests that one’s ideology is conservative, or laissez-faire.

Having faith does not mean you are or have to be conservative, neither socially nor fiscally.

Furthermore, I believe it is important to establish the distinction between why I understand as anarcho-capitalism and free-market capitalism. The former, to my understanding, permits abuses of human rights, civil liberties and economic inequalities, whereas the latter allows for forward mobility, protection of private property, and economic development.

Contrary to what we’ve been fed by conservative politicians, lobbyists, religious groups and mere culture and history, capitalism does not have one definition. In former president George W. Bush’s days, words like capitalism, democracy, religion, God, and christianity were hurled around to appeal to the masses, with the underlying intention of seizing power from foreigners and securing economic interests.

My question to is, what does capitalism mean to you? What do all these words mean to you? Obviously, they mean something different to everybody.

Ain’t that something?

Benevolent Monarch


My friend told me he believed in Hell the other day. He said he thinks everyone will spend some time there, but I am not so sure. I like to believe God is benevolent and loving and that we are destined to be as happy as we wish, long as we refrain from lies. 

 

Lord forgive us for the things we do not understand. If all is willed by God, may Justice prevail in the end and may humanity move forward in God’s light.

Obama 2012


Al I gotta say, is f*** the lies, the rumors, and the ignorance. Voting for Obama means voting for individual liberty and a liberal foreign policy. All the other shit doesn’t matter. Romney is a liar and an arrogant politician who thrives on elitism and hypocrisy, Obama is a humble man who simply wants to enact what should be in order for America to serve not only the wealthy, but also those who are underprivileged, or simply those who don’t have the time to focus on political issues due to their careers. There’s nothing wrong with that. Vote Obama, vote truth.

I’m not sure if Obama is our savior, and I’m not sure he is going to bring us everything we want. In fact, no one can be sure of what the future holds, the only thing we can do is trust our emotions, our convictions, and consider the facts. At the end of the day, facts can be used to justify any position, which is why we have two sides to begin with, Republicans and Democrats, who are both CONVINCED they are correct because they have “facts” to support them.

It all comes down to your convictions people. Trust in your intuition, in your beliefs, in your faith, not in discursive thought, not in vanity and arrogance, and certainly not in fear of anything but God.

I support President Obama because I BELIEVE in him, I believe in his message, and I believe he is a God fearing man. I believe President Obama is the only candidate who has the potential to revitalize America and to rekindle relations between America and the rest of the world, including our enemies.

If I am wrong, I am wrong, but I believe I am not, and my beliefs come from a far away place.

It is time for Americans to understand that politics — and life, for that matter — is not about being right, or being smart, or being cool. Politics, like life, is about being honest, and honestly, President Obama is that man in my eyes.
