America can start the world peace process

The United States of America is a melting pot of cultures and religions, and our Constitution has enabled us to live in peace for over 240 years--except for the Civil War, and that was a time when nations were experimenting with new freedoms. Our Constitution guarantees Americans our inalienable rights, as as people came to America for these rights, the first generations formed into culture groups who spoke the same languages, and then their children bridged the old cultures and moved out into the mainstream American culture.

An example of this is bridging is occurring now as the door to Cuba is opening again. Older Cuban Americans are going back to visit their family who stayed in Cuba, but their children are more American than Cuban.

This process has enabled the power game of regime change. The transitional government that was put into power in Iraq came from Detroit and England.

The counterpoint of that, though, is that the loyalties in one individual or one culture group can be flip-flopped. Regime change can topple governments, but when the proverbial pendulum swings to its  extreme, there is also the possibility that these same culture groups can also rise against the United States.

On the west coast of the United States, during World War II, for example, there was the fear that the Japanese Americans would become spies for Japan, so many were placed into concentration camps. There was also an element of Greed associated with this, because some who went into the camps were law-abiding Americans who lived in nice houses and ran lucrative businesses, and they lost what they had to people who preyed on them.

There is no way to defend yourself from prejudice and ulterior motives. It becomes a genocide.

The power games are oppressive to the people. The games must stop.

The blog is based on the premise that the same crises occur on every level, and so if you solve the problem on one level, you can apply the same solution on every level. Our organization is a microcosm of the planet, with our 200 independent members, but the United States of America is also a microcosm of the entire planet, and so it is up to both to demonstrate the solution.

Can we bring world peace within the United States? How can we do that?

Rather than to play the game of regime change--which reached its ultimate conclusion with the preemptive strike on Iraq--can the United States start the world peace process within the United States, and demonstrate the potential to the rest of the world?

This is not isolationism. We are not isolating ourselves from the rest of the planet. We are demonstrating the potential of the U.S. Constitution to enable a nation to live in peace, to bring together the cultures and religions. We don't have to democratize other nations, we can demonstrate the potential of democracy, and take our own nation to a higher level by standing on the principles that made our nation great.

We are dealing with racial problems that other nations don't have. We can learn from other nations.
Each nation has an ancient culture that is homogenous, and they each have a niche concept already, but also must take it to the higher level. They have forgotten their historical and traditional niches, and, just like the United States, have strayed from the principles that have made them great, also.

How we intend to address this within the United States is through our tent tour segment. We must amend our Constitution to create the additional layer of government over what already exists, and our plan is to go into every state and to give its citizens the opportunity to approach their state legislatures to request they create resolutions to give to Congress to bring together a Convention of States.

Just a week ago, an organization drew together delegates from all over the United States in a mock Convention of States to debate possible amendments to our Constitution. While our Founding Fathers used this format for writing the Constitution, since then, it is never been successfully used to amend our Constitution. It has always gone through Congress, but Congress has been unwilling to give any power to the States, and has chosen not to address the State's resolutions. Now, with a 20% approval rating, and the potential for the rise of violent extremism in the United States, it is time for the federal government to agree to support the plan for the international government--by turning inside our country--and to agree that if the States will bring a resolution for the international government to them, that they will agree to this amendment process.

First, we must approach Congress and explain to them how each of their States will benefit by supporting the plan for the international government. When can we do this? We are dealing with a presidential election, but also a Congressional election. The president of the United States does not sign an amendment into law, so as far as world peace is concerned, whether the United States participates in the international government is up to the people. It is up to the people to approach their State legislatures, but first they must be aware of how it will benefit them, also.

Our organization has been enduring a hostile takeover. The pirates have taken the plan an claimed it for their own, but even if a corrupted form of the plan has gone out, many, many people are now aware of the plan. No one will agree to a plan that does not benefit everyone. It is time to find out how the plan will benefit each individual, and how it can enable everyone to function on a higher level.

The conflict in Iraq taught the entire planet many things. The power games don't work. The need for a way to resolve conflicts without going to war. That you cannot get the life you want by grabbing for power.
