Hope for Change

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have been delving into what won’t work in order to find what will work. So far:

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

2.   The 9/12 Project?

3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?’

4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress?

Today: Why hoping that the present circumstances will change and the will of WE the People will be implemented, won’t work!

Last time WE saw the potential problems of a Constitutional Convention. WE compared this action as putting a band-aid on an artery that has been severed. It will not stop the bleeding or the danger. It will not work as it does not solve all the problems because it does not address the real problem which is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.” WE can find something better. Shall the “something better” be, hope that everything will change for the better?

What is hope? Does hope remind you of faith, prayer, luck, fate, wishful thinking or trusting in a groundhog (like yesterday) to determine if winter will be over in six weeks or will we just be cold and miserable longer?

Many of the words above are often grouped together; considered synonymous and believed to define basically the same thing. But words have meaning!

Of course hope, faith, prayer and even fate are found in systems of belief or if you prefer, religions. Therefore, there would be excellent sources to look for definitions along with a good unabridged dictionary of the English language, for the etymology and origins of the words.

Faith, as many people use the word, is thought to mean basically the same thing as luck, hope and fate – something that cannot be explained; is outside of one’s control and something that one either has or does not. If this were true, it would make language a useless tool for communication. But the law of language dictates that WE cannot articulate in words, that which WE do not understand. Therefore, whatever faith is, it is not as WE have come to think of it. From the Greek, this word is [pistis] (or some variant of the word). The word “faith” appears only twice in the Old Testament of the Bible and if read in the context, the meaning is “faithfulness.” There is a huge difference between those two words!

Most of the time, the word “faith” is found in the New Testament and from the context, should be defined as believe, believing etc. This makes more sense, since believing  is a verb and connotes action. Believing is something that we all do; something done; some form of action taken for a desired result.

Prayer then would be like making a request, supplication and yes, even a demand. Why would anyone pray for something that is not available? Otherwise, prayer is just empty words that might make one feel better for the moment, but not much else. According to the Bible, people are to pray with believing (acting, taking some action) and expecting an answer.

I have met people that all they want to do is pray about everything. They pray for signs. They pray for God to show them His will. Now wouldn’t it make more sense for people to just know what God’s will is and then just do it? If God exists, doesn’t it make sense that He would want people to know what His will is? Every religion that I know of has a book or if you would like to call it, a reference manual or a rule book for faith and practice. Is this not God’s will? Now if waiting on some specific information not already covered in the Book, wouldn’t is make more sense to do what you know, while waiting for what you don’t?

Sorry if you among US, WE the People do not believe in God. You are still covered under that whole “endowed by [the] Creator with certain inalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness!”  🙂

Now as to “hope,” hope is not something that might be available or might not be available. Hope is just something that is not available yet, but will one day be, available in the future.

Basically, WE the People are not supposed to be sitting around waiting for things to change. WE are not supposed to just pray empty words that maybe change will somehow come. WE are not supposed to be trusting in fate, luck or the groundhog that OUR fortunes or situations will change for the better. WE are not supposed to be hoping for change either.

All that is just fiction, luck, wishful thinking, Alice in Wonderland or Matrix stuff. This kind of hoping makes for a great story or it’s entertaining, but it ‘doesn’t bring home the bacon’, does it?

What WE should be doing is taking action, moving in the direction WE want to go with a specific destination in mind, a road map HOW to get there, plenty of fuel and the will to get there!

“Even so faith [pistis -belief/believing], if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith [pistis -belief/believing], and I have works; shew me thy faith[pistis-belief/believing] without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith[pistis- belief/believing] by my works.”

The Bible – The Book of James, Chapter 2:17, 18, King James Version

If words have no meaning and If these words all mean the same thing, and If WE are destined or predestined to some fate which WE cannot control, WE might as well, just hope for the best? As for me, I’d rather believe, act and take some action in the direction I choose to go. I believe this is the true nature of WE the people!

If we do not put action to what WE believe, someone(s) or something will act and it will most likely not be towards the change, WE want to see!

Hoping that the present circumstances will change and the will of WE the People will be implemented, won’t work because, WE will not believe, WE will not act. Then it becomes too late. For instead of acting, WE will just be reacting to what WE believe, WE cannot change.

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue.

Next Time: Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People.

Check out the other blogs listed to the right. Come often. Bring others. Get involved. Do something. Even if it is just leaving a comment, that’s doing something. But don’t bother in telling me how stupid I am, this won’t work or that you hate my guts and things like that. Been there, done that and heard that all before and then some. Be original. Be different.

Ask not what your country can do for you

or what you can do for your country,

but what can WE the People do, for each other!
