Voter Fraud aka Is it Rigged?

Ballots in Colorado were mailed out beginning 10/18/16, here’s what we’ve learned so far.

Many voters received more than one ballot in their name, non-citizens received ballots, some are voting twice using stolen ballots.

All of this has been documented in just 7 days.

Is the media reporting it? Some outlets are, but what will state government or the Feds do about it is the bigger question?

Our form of democracy is 238 years old. It’s not a perfect system but it’s pretty darn good. It’s the power of politicians and their cronies that’s pretty darn bad. When faced with corruption or fraud, politicians cry and point their fingers at the opposing political party. Few, if any are willing to address the issue from within their party.

“Off with their heads!” is the unified cry. “It’s the Republicans fault!” is heard from the Democrats side, “It’s the Democrats fault!” is heard from the Republican side. Media chooses a side and provides a slanted report designed to lead the public in the direction they desire. The real problem is that we buy into this.

We, the People, shake our heads in disgust, “those darn Republicans, those darn Democrats!”

We, the People, should focus on the victim, ourselves and our freedoms. We should turn off the media, damage their revenue flow and they’ll change their tune. Media is no longer about honest reporting it’s all about revenue.

Politicians are no longer about serving their constituents, they are concerned with special interests and their personal revenue flow. Stop buying into it and they’ll change their flow.

We, the People, should stop pointing fingers at each other and point right at the problem, the politicians and the media, whose collective power is damaging to us all.

 

The Twelve Days of Christmas – Day 5

In all the noise of the holidays, we sometimes wish for a little peace and quiet.

Day 5 –   Walking   –   Walking is beneficial in so many ways, healthy and uplifting. We love walking during the holidays, whether it be after a snowfall or to view the holiday lights. So grab your loved ones and head out.

There is a special joy in bundling up and heading out in the brisk air. When the sunlight hits the new-fallen snow it seems to glisten with diamonds. I am always tempted to make a snow angel. My decision is based on how far it is to the house.  Breathing in the fresh air is both invigorating and calming.

Our favorite walk during this season is to see the lights, strolling along the creek path with the tall trees covered in white lights while the bushes are draped with multi-colored lights until we reach the LED tree. This enormous pine in its cloak of many colors is a beautiful sight to see.

Visitor Center Tree

Or a visit to the botanical gardens with its covered trellises, whimsically lit butterflies, dragonflies, and strolling carolers. Every year there is something new, but our family tradition remains the same. We buy hot chocolate, a bag of roasted chestnuts and head down the path. Once we are sufficiently chilled, we step into the warm atrium filled with poinsettia of every color. I love to sit on a bench near the fountains for reflection. It’s so serene.

Blue Tree Botanic Gardens

There are so many places to take a holiday walk and escape the noise of the holidays. We have  Zoolights, Butterfly Pavilion, our neighborhoods, the Civic Center and many more. One of these years we will manage to see them all!

If you find yourself getting a bit overwhelmed this year, head outside, it’s good for the soul.
