We insist on honesty by all in power and on protection of our fundamental rights, the Constitution, and Bill of Rights. In the words of the Founders, Liberty and Justice for ALL. We say, "Enough of today's hard right distorting those words to exclude everyone but themselves." Judicial corruption and government corruption are just as intolerable as business, corporate, and financial corruption. The youth look for role models in government and the wealthy. Instead, they wind up imitating them whether ood or bad. We have a serious problem in America, and unless we the people address it, our children and grandchildren will suffer. The problem is dishonesty in government, business, finance. Each of us has complaints with various aspects of federal, state, and local governments, as well as the rampant decline of ethics in business and finance. The core problem is that there are too many people in business and government who will not conduct their affairs in transparency and perform honestly at all times. When we were in school, we were all taught to honor 1776, the Declaration of Independen; and to revere our secular Constitution and Bill of Rights. Many of those blessings have been taken away from us by greedy and unscrupulous business, backed up by complicit judges and by elected officials. We are reaping what we sowed. Our forefathers left us indelible blessings with the Declaration of Independence, followed by the More Perfect Union of our godless Constitution, yet corruption in religion threatens to undermine the vision of Amendment One. Greed and the decline of ethics in business is worsened when aided and abetted by government and judicial corruption. No, maybe there are few outright bribes, but what do these lavish campaign contributions represent, if not corrupt quid pro quo. MONEY TALKS. What's at stake is our liberty, our livelihoods, our rights, our children, and our grandchildren. The greatest moral voice of modern America belongs to a Bible-based Baptist preacher named Martin Luther King, who said, "I am not interested in power for power's sake, but I'm interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good." The simple fact of karma is this, we reap what we sow. Let us sow carefully. Let us be patient in well doing. "Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice." Though they burn our churches, or shoot us down for wearing hoodies, our trust must be in God. Please join; invite your most trusted friends to join; and ask them to invite their trusted friends to join. This movement must be driven by those who are willing to pay the price. Wisdom must be lived.

Signed,

Robert Shepherd

In times of crisis, silence is a sin. With the courage to speak up, we truly can CHANGE THE WORLD. Wisdom must be lived. Look inwardly, and become a better person. Then let your light shine. We have been incredibly blessed by earlier generations, but we must also be honest where history's mistakes haunt us still Take a stand, and make the world a little better.
