Remember where your real duty lies

I ran for supervisor with one message to deliver: To espouse the notion that “a philosophical divide” exists not only in Nevada County, but across this globe, for which we humans have charge. This responsibility is not deniable, is not excusable, cannot be ignored, cast off, or conveniently disposed as a means to satisfy a group of individuals perceive conception of this great and awesome duty granted by God, to us, his people.

A duty to populate, tame, and take from the Earth all which is needed to provide for his people. A duty to secure homes, lives, families, countries and political quality to which beneficial lifestyles embrace his people. A duty to exclude, remove, alienate, reproach, and make to repent those groups of individuals who through hate, loathing, tolerating and demoralizing social structure infects his people with sickness and vile. And afterwards, the duty to love thy neighbor as you shall love yourself.

We have failed in all these duties.

Our children are being raped, killed, tossed out with trash, abandoned, and made to adhere to wicked notions professed by the individuals whose contentions provides equality of species; those whose nature is to pillage and feed off their young. Our elders suffer abuse, neglect, and are used as voter fodder to advance these individuals ideals of a one species world … a slithering world. Our women know not womanhood. Our men know not manliness.

We have failed in our duty.

Ours is not a duty to judge the skin; ours is to judge the soul. Ours is not to judge the outside, but to keep clean the inside.

We have failed this duty.

Nationwide soon, we the people who claim our freedoms from God as spoken by the founders of this nation have a choice in this “philosophical divide.” One cannot cherish God and His freedoms and vote for individuals who willingly embrace indifference and acceptance of our failed duties.

This year, please vote for God and his duties, not the individuals and the duties they reject and neglect.
