Despite the economic slowdown, layoffs, mortgage foreclosures and a generally depressed economy, the American consumer is still the most powerful economic force on the planet. With selected use of its holiday spending, the consumer can forever alter the American and world economy. Solace should be taken in the fact that billions of dollars are still being spent to get you to buy, buy and buy this holiday season. How you spend your money and what you spend your money on can forever alter what and how products are produced.
With great sadness I heard the story of the death at a Wal-Mart store where hoards of consumers trampled a person to death just to get a shot at holiday bargains. Those that did this represent all that has been wrong with our economy and the consumer. With the promise of ‘big savings,’ throngs of frenzied shoppers did just what large corporations want the consumer to do; spend their money mindlessly! If we are to come out this emerging depression and if we are to save the planet from increasing risks of environmental collapse, the consumer must use its spending power to alter the way business does business.
Image this as headline news on December 26th. “While holiday retail spending was the worst in recent memory, the American consumer sent a clear message to businesses; they want change and will use their hard earned dollars to get it. Americans abandoned their traditional habit of buying anything that carried a ‘sale tag’ and sought out products that were natural, eco-friendly, lasting and American made. While almost all retail sectors were down, there were sharp rises in natural health and beauty products, small scale solar products, items made with glass and steel instead of plastic, crafted toys, natural fiber clothing and durable goods that have a sound history of actually being durable. Store owners, dismayed with all of the products still left on the shelves said that next year, they will abide by consumer wishes and stock those items that that meet changing consumer preferences.”
This type of story does not have to be a fairytale. It can happen and it can happen now. As a consumer, you can buy non-plastic item. Stainless steel water bottles, glass baby bottles, and toys made from safe materials can be found. Yes, these may cost a little more but once this type of spending habit is developed, costs will come down. If need be, look on the internet and shop on-line for natural products and stop trampling people to death. If internet sales of such companies sky rocket, businesses will get the hint. Find clothing that is made of natural fibers. If it costs a lot, buy fewer items. At least you know that the gift will not give people skin disease from petro-chemicals in the fibers. There are all types of natural health and beauty aids. Buying these products will tell companies to stop putting carcinogens in make-up. There are hundreds of solar and other alternative energy products that you can buy on the internet. From outdoor solar lights, wind-up radios and flash lights, to solar powered chargers for laptops, cell phones and IPods, spending on these items will let industry know that you are serious about alternative energy products. It is said that form follows thought. Know also that products follow dollars. Instead of cheep particle board furniture, but those made of solid wood. If it costs too much, get one piece at a time rather than buying a whole set. At least what you get will last and will not contain chemicals used to make pressboard.
And you know, you can always buy books! Instead of just the big names from the big chain stores, visit the smaller independent bookstores and buy some unknown authors. Buy books from small presses instead of the Big Six publishers that have controlled 90% of what they offer you to read. Save some trees and buy a Kindle reader from Amazon and download books in seconds. Find books that not just entertain but that also inspire others to help create a new way of life and a new way of doing business. Check out authors like Jack canfield, Juna Jinsei, Susan Shumsky, Marvin Wilson, Linda Walker, Joyce Moore, Brian Doe and yours truly, Philip F. Harris.
The point of all of this is that you, the consumer, stand at a crossroad. You can continue to spend money on poorly designed sometimes dangerous and useless non-lasting items. These items will all end up in the overflowing landfills in weeks and will add to climate degradation. Alternatively, you can choose the path that creates a more sustainable world and buy products that have meaning and durability. You can choose to trample or you can choose to alter out economic system. Tell businesses what you want and do it with your dollars. You have the power. Don’t continue to put that power in the hands of others.

The following appears in POLARIZING YOUR LIFE TOWARD PERFECTION which is now on Amazon.com. While many are experiencing perceived lack and insufficiency, there is a power that can turn your thoughts and your reality 180 degrees. It is THE POWER OF GRATITUDE!
In a polite society we say "thank you" after we receive a gift. While that is nice, it not exactly the way the Universe works. Many falter in the manifestation process because they believe that they do not already have what they want. After all, if you cannot see it or touch it, it is not there-right? Wrong!!!!!!!!!!Everything and anything that you could possibly want or desire is all around you. It is in the form of energy-waiting to be shaped and brought into the physical world by the creative process of the mind.
Thoughts are things and all things are made of energy-physics 101. Nothing exists in the world that was not first thought about. A chair, a house, a plane, a computer, etc. are merely thoughts that have become manifest. I would go so far as to say that even you and all of the infinite manifestations of life exists because of the first thought-the prime mover-the creative consciousness behind all of existence.
When we say that we do not have something, we close the cosmic door. We are telling the Universe "I DO NOT HAVE" and the Universe grants your desire and "YOU DO NOT HAVE." It is said, "seek, and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened." Unfortunately most people think this merely means that if you seek spiritual salvation, you will find it. However, these words are a basic Law of the Universe. In essence the law says that if you seek something, you will find it. It also says that what you have found is what you have sought. If you knock, a door will be opened, or the doors that have opened are the ones upon which you have knocked.
This puts life squarely upon your shoulders. What you have gotten is what you have sought. "But," you say, "I did not seek disease, poverty, financial lack, poverty, loneliness or general misery." Sorry, on some level you either consciously did or you unconsciously accepted these conditions because someone convinced you that is all you will ever get out of life. Someone gives you a canvass and some paints and you say, "What good is this? There is no picture on the canvass. It is blank." You are told to draw a picture and you balk because you are convinced that you are not an artist. As a result, other people use the paints to draw what they want. Now you are stuck with a picture you do not like.
Your world is the canvass and the paints are your mind seeking to create a beautiful picture. Because you are told that you cannot draw, you let others do it-you let others paint your world-create your world.
Now you sit, displeased with the picture but unwilling to change it because you are convinced that only others can paint. What does this have to do with gratitude? Because you do not feel that you can paint, you do not feel any level of thankfulness for the pictures others have drawn for you. You really wanted a picture of a beautiful house in the country but someone draws a run down apartment. Why should you be thankful, the picture is not what you want? Well, you shouldn't be thankful for something you don't want.
Only you can draw what you really desire. But, thinking your desires out of reach you fail to pick up the brushes-even though you have an endless supply of blank canvasses. A blank canvass is all things-in potential. Literally, anything imagined can be placed upon it. The reason it is not a picture of a nice house, or a good job or a wonderful relationship is because you refuse to draw your own picture. We convince ourselves that if we do not have it, there is no use in drawing it.
The fact of the matter is that you do have whatever IT may be. The canvass is all things; merely waiting your brush stokes to make it real. When you say that you have nothing to be thankful for, you are saying that the canvass can never have the picture you desire. You close the door without even trying to open it. You see the canvass as blank, but it can be whatever you desire it to be.
Giving thanks means that you have already received something. When you give thanks to the Universe for all that you could possibly desire, you are saying that you have received all that you could possibly desire. You give form and then substance to the energy that exists everywhere and by law, these things must manifest. If you say that the picture on the canvass is a new house, it cannot be a run down apartment-the panting can only be what is put on it.
It is only hard to give thanks for what you think you do not have because that is your conditioning. You can't paint? Not true-the world you have, you have painted. When you begin to accept the fact that you are the artist of your own life, you will begin to realize that all of those blank canvasses await your secret desires to be drawn by your creative mind.
Give thanks for all that you desire. They already exist in potential-it is up to you to make them real. TELL the Universe what you want and tell the Universe you are thankful that it has given you an unlimited supply of paint. Do not close the door of life by saying no thank you. "The purpose of life is to enjoy every minute of it."

Just in time for the BIG EAT (Thanksgiving) I thought I would post an excerpt from my new book, POLARIZING YOUR LIFE TOWARD PERFECTION released by Cambridge Books and available on Amazon.com
POLARIZE YOUR THOUGHTS
I HAVE DEVELOPED A REVOLUTIONARY NEW WAY TO STAY TRIM, FEEL FIT, LIVE LONGER, AND STAY HEALTHY! All you have to do is to polarize your thoughts towards physical perfection.
Sorry for the hype, but we see this all of the time. Buy this book, take these miracle vitamins from dinosaur bones, diet pills that are “guaranteed to work,” eat carbs, eat protein, avoid this and that, what the stars are doing, and on and on. Some of the hype is well intentioned and some is just intending to get your money. So what works and what doesn’t?
The real “secret” to living healthier, longer, and feeling physically good is simple. EAT NATURALLY! By this I do not mean following the ever changing USDA guidelines and their food pyramid. I do not even mean spending a fortune on exotic health foods. Hey, if you can afford and you like, sure, try some of the specialty health foods but you do not need to fixate on this method of eating.
It is does not take a genius to understand that if you eat a variety of foods, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean and white meat (if you have to), a few sweets (preferably homemade), drink real water, eliminate soda, greatly reduce dairy, a little caffeine and reduce alcohol consumption, you will live a healthier life. Forget the fad diets and forget relying on pills or supplements to make you feel good. The supplements may be needed for some medical reason, and that is fine, but you do not need to load your system with tons of them as a substitute for proper eating. We all know that gorging yourself will make you ill, and that smaller portions, eaten more frequently, is healthier.
People tend to want the quick fix for a healthier life. There really is none; health will not come in a bottle. You need to polarize your thoughts away from the hype and fads towards a more natural way of eating. We all know that mass consumption of fast foods will kill you or at least cause disease. We know better, we are just too lazy to live a better life. Quick foods and a quick lifestyle will lead to an early grave and to a stressful life. This does not mean that you should deny yourself treats. That denial often results in binge eating. In his book, Natural Health, Natural Medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil says, “Diet has the distinction of being the only major determinant of health that is completely under your control.” In terms of special food regimens or diets aimed at improving health, Weil says, “The mental shift (represented by the decision to follow a demanding nutritional program) may be more important than the specifics of the program.” In essence, shifting your thought pattern is more important than the actual change in the foods consumed.
Remember, the food industry is controlled by the food industry. Almost all of the ads and research you see promoting new diets, new supplements, and what you should eat are funded by the food industry. There opinions are definitely biased towards whatever product or food they supply. Many foods that you probably eat are addictive! By adjusting the ingredients, food suppliers have been able to hook you onto certain foods. It is almost like the tobacco industry when it was discovered that they included ingredients in their products that increased addiction. Sugar, in all of it many forms, is addictive. Look at your prepared food product labels and you often see sugar or corn syrup in the top of the list. You are addicted to sugar...

Manifesting Therapy with Dyan Garris
Manifesting Therapy is for those that have studied the Law of Attraction and The Secret, and tried almost everything to attract and manifest abundance, prosperity, and money to little or no avail. Some of you may even have read my book Money and Manifesting, but still feel stuck. Let's explore exactly what is still in your way. Let's get to the root of it so you can move forward on the path. For more details, visit www.voiceoftheangels.com/manifestingtherapy.html
About Dyan Garris
Dyan Garris has helped many people move forward in their lives with her gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. Dyan is a voice recognition psychic and trance channel. She became aware of her gifts early in life and has helped many people learn to use the power contained in their chakras to be the best they can be. She has created a CD series of music and meditation for healing, chakra balancing, relaxation, and vibrational attunement of mind, body, and spirit. Each CD vibrates to a specific chakra and contains several tracks of music plus a guided meditation. She is the author, developer and artist of Voice of the Angels – A Healing Journey Spiritual Cards. (©1994 - 2008) and “Voice of the Angels – Talk To Your Food! Intuitive Cooking,” “The Book of Daily Channeled Messages” and “Fish Tale of Woe – Lost at Sea.” She also writes a “Daily Channeled Message.”
I have asked Dyan several questions about the nature of her work and the tools she offers to enable people to alter their lives and their reality. What follows are the questions and her responses:
1.What exactly does it mean to balance your Chakras?
Balancing your chakras means that you’ve brought your etheric body into balance with your physical body. You’ve cleared and opened an energy pathway.
2.How does one even know if Chakras are out of balance?
Chakras are part of our bodies. Just as an arm or leg is connected to the physical body, the chakras are also connected to our physical body and to each other. When an arm or leg is out of joint, we can feel it. It’s the same with chakras. If you feel stuck and unable to move forward in life, no doubt your chakras are out of balance.
3.What happens if Chakras are out of balance?
When something is out of balance in the physical body, we feel it as pain or as something not being quite right. When our energy field/chakras are out of balance, it eventually causes imbalance in the physical body and also in our outer lives. The whole car drives much smoother when the tires are aligned and balanced.
4.It takes only ten minutes? How will I feel when this is done?
“Doors To The Soul” DVD for Automatic Chakra Balance™ is designed to clear and balance the chakra system in about ten minutes. You will feel relaxed, calm, and balanced. You will feel as if you’ve been gone for hours. And you will find that it keeps on working for hours after.
5.What do you mean when you say that your music helps to achieve vibrational attunement?
To be vibrationally attuned means that the mind, body, and spirit are working together in harmony. My music and meditations are designed to bring about harmony through harmony.
6.How often should a person listen to your music in order to achieve maximum benefit?
The first six CDs in the now completed series of eight are music and meditation. But I also did two music only compilations for those that don’t want to go on the guided “journeys.” And “Release” and “Eight” are also music only. The music gets more complex as you go on in the series. For a person to derive maximum benefit, they should go through the whole series and listen on a daily basis until they feel ready to move to the next one. However, it’s also beneficial to choose just one CD that you feel a particular resonance with and then listen to it daily until you see changes in your life
7.What is “Manifesting Therapy” and how does it generally work?
Manifesting Therapy is something I came up with to help people get to the very root of what is in their way of manifesting. It’s done as a private phone session. It’s part psychic reading because I’m tuning in to the person’s energy and seeing exactly what’s in their way. It’s part therapy because the focus is on manifesting and what they can do to manifest their desires, rather than on me answering questions such as “Who will I marry, when will my boyfriend/girlfriend call me, or when will I meet someone new?”
8.Are there specific aspects of one’s life that will not benefit from the use of your music and other transformational tools?
My tools are designed to effect positive change on all levels and multi-dimensionally.
9.What expectations should one have when using your music to enhance life?
They can expect that their life will change for the better. It seems like such a simple thing – music - and it is. But it’s also very powerful. Sometimes we make positive change much more difficult than it needs to be.
10.In your opinion, what is the secret to using the “Secret?”
One secret is to begin to understand the Law of Attraction as but one step in the process of manifesting. The other secret is that creation does not take place in the mind. We cannot create a child using only the power of our mind.
11.If a person is following the news, it is obvious that things aren’t exactly kosher. What overall advice would give to those who are caught up in the illusion of fear and despair?
Understand that fear begets more fear. When you buy into it and invest in it you’re basically feeding the monster. Figure out who you really are without your money/pieces of paper, possessions, and things. Get to the root of what it is you’re really so fearful about anyway. Fear blocks the energy of creation. Fear renders you immobile and paralyzed and keeps you in victim mode. Go about your business and know that you’re just fine. Everything moves in rhythm and cycles. This too shall pass.

Most people are familiar with Cesar Millan and his show, “The Dog Whisperer” that airs on the National Geographic channel. Cesar is a basic miracle worker when it comes to the canines. In a typical scenario, a dog owner has a dog that is out of control. It bites, barks, displays neurosis, attacks, chews, runs away or has a host of other problems from depression to over exuberance. At their wits end, the dog owner calls in Cesar to work his magic and that is exactly what he does. At the end of each show, pet and owner find peace and harmony.
There is a persistent theme at the heart of Cesar’s miracles. What is almost always revealed is that the root of the problem is not the dog, but the dog owner. Owners are found to lack authority, i.e. not the pack leader; over indulge or smother the animal in too much affection; give in to the pet’s demands; act in fear when confronted with other dogs or negative situations, and they generally have no control over the dog. All of these failings lead to the host of issues that make both dog and owner miserable.
So what the heck does this have to do with the economy? The most important bit of wisdom that Cesar imparts to his clients is that it is the pet owners “perception’ or mindset that creates the problem. The solution always rests upon the thoughts of the owner and not the acts of the dog. It is obvious to all that the U.S. and world economies are in a mess. Official recession was announced for E.U. nations, job losses are escalating, consumer spending is at all time lows, retailers are in a panic, mortgages are still collapsing, the auto industry is on the verge of bankruptcy, credit is stalled, and governments simply do not know what to do. The G8 has become the G20 and will probably become the G120 if things continue on their downward spiral.
The economy, represented by the corporate giants, has become the mad dog in need of taming. But what are governments doing? Just like Cesar’s clients, government is not the pack leader, over indulges, spoils and is fearful of the economy and those who have wielded economic power since the Industrial Revolution. Just as with the dogs, all that does is create more neurotic, selfish and out-of-control behavior. They are pouring billions of bones, i.e. dollars, into kennel of insatiable beasts and the negative behavior goes unchecked and exacerbated.
So what might Cesar suggest? The first thing would be that governments, but really the people, must become the pack leaders and assume authority and dominance over the beast. The people must change their mindset of fear and act with confidence. They must understand that the pet (economy) is not in control, they are. If we have seen nothing else from the economic debacle it should be that the state of the economy is ‘totally’ one of perception. People perceive the problem and according to the Law of Attraction, the problem grows because that is where the mental energy flows. In the book, “Polarizing Your Life Toward Perfection,” once the weeds are eliminated from your mental garden, you make room for new positive thoughts and realities to grow and flourish. With all of the news hype about consumer and investor confidence heading for the bargain basement, there is little wonder that things are getting worse.
If we follow the advice of Cesar Milan, we should see that consumers are now in a position to greatly alter economic, social, political and environmental policy. In the past, consumers have allowed economic forces, the dog, control our lives. The economy demanded and like “good’ pet owners, we gave. The result has been usurious interest rates, poor lending practices, mindless spending, over flowing landfills, environmental degradation and a life at the mercy of the economic elite. President-elect Obama knows the power of a people who take control of their lives. We have seen that if an enlightened public will asserts itself, change follows. The current pause in the economy is a wonderful thing. We are now given a chance to reassess our priorities and our lives. With what dollars we have, we can demand quality, eco-friendly, and green products and services. If we do not buy cars that are gas guzzlers, Detroit will have to produce better cars if they want our money. If we do not accept loans and credit cards at 19.9% interest, they will have to offer lower rates. If we demand an end to poisoning our children with plastic food containers, they will have to produce something better. If we do not indulge fast food chains that are ruining the health of our children, they will have to come up with something better. If we do not produce lasting products, we do not buy them. If they insist on using child labor to produce their products, we do not buy them.
The consumer can now become the economic “pack leader” and forever alter the course of the world. Consumers can demand that no money be given ‘unless’ economic change is part of the package. It is our money, our taxes that now controls the pack. Use this resource wisely and a new reality will be created in which the dog and its owner live in peace and harmony. I hope Cesar Milan is offered a post in the Obama administration!

Diagnosis: Lupus, The Intimate Journal of a Lupus Patient

From the pages of her intimate daily journal, we travel with her through chronic joint pain, frustration, anger and grief for her former self to her current state of remission. Far from being a litany of complaints, the author’s pages reveal her unexpected spiritual growth and gratitude for life itself, and she hopes she can be of help to others who suffer from this disease or other chronic illness.

Bringing to Beneficial Law of Attraction: The Manifestation Teachings her extensive studies in ancient and contemporary wisdom and philosophy, Ms Bradford has acquired more then a quarter of a century expertise in Clinical and Transpersonal hypnosis. In spite of her extensive professional credentials, she could never have imagined the singular psychic event that would transform her life. Commencing in the winter of 2004, a hypnosis client, Lena Lees spontaneously channeled twenty-eight sessions delineating Eastern goddess of Compassion, Kuan Yin's modern spiritual scriptures. Witness and transcriber of these sessions, Ms. Bradford then compiled them into the extraordinary manuscript, The Living Word of Kuan Yin: The Teachings and Prophecies of the Goddess of Compassion and Mercy. Distilling from that work, the essence of the goddess teachings, Ms. Bradford now brings to you the highlights of Kuan Yin's world-renowned compassion along with the next generation of manifestation sciences.

The peace-loving Stygian people trust in their ancient prophecies predicting the coming of the Arich-their savior. Paranoia and fear prompt the issuance of royal Jonnick decrees designed to thwart his coming. Midwives ordered to report the birth of any child born on a moonless night know it means death to the child. Effects of the law trickle to the present where Manelin, a social outcast, and Jalil, a lame Jonnick girl ordered to be killed at birth find themselves thrust into the midst of unfolding prophecies and a world on the verge of annihilation. www.theinkslinger.net

IS THE ECONOMY GETTING YOU DOWN? DO YOU FEEL THAT YOU ARE NO LONGER IN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE? DO YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE AT THE MERCY OF WALL STREET AND THE BANKS? THINK AGAIN!
Life Is About Creating Yourself
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
--George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950, Irish playwright and Nobel Prize winner in literature)
Remember, happiness doesn’t depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think.
--Dale Carnegie (1888-1955, American author and speaker)
No one is in control of your happiness but you. Therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.
--Barbara De Angelis (relationship guru and best-selling author)
Did you know that your brain can hold only one bit of information in any given moment? This is a very important fact.
Because if you are focusing on something negative and unpleasant, then everything positive that you are experiencing in your life is lost at that moment. And there is always something positive in your life, if you only look for it. It is your choice!
Next time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought or picturing a negative outcome ... stop! Erase that negative thought and that picture, and replace it with what you want to happen. Here are some ways to do it:
1. Mentally delete the unwanted information, as if it were on a computer screen. See the blank page, and design a positive picture for the desired outcome.
2. Imagine the image is on a regular piece of paper. See yourself as you tear that paper into tiny little pieces. Then, take out a new paper, and paint a new image.
3. Another approach is to rewind the “old message” or the memory of what has happened and then record a new, more positive version over it.
Eventually, you will discover your own personal way of replacing negative thoughts and visions with positive ones that work best for you.

We tend to think of refugees as people in some distant land with whom we may sympathize but for whom we can do little. Here are some things to consider. With global climate change, we are seeing refugees everywhere, even from Katrina in Louisiana. The destruction of thousands of homes from wildfires in the West, creates refugees. In a way, the massive unemployment numbers and mortgage foreclosures are creating refugees. You see, the issue is not just in remote places of the world. The issue is here, too. Perhaps one day you will need help. It is time to throw away the blinders and see and stop what is happening to those around the world and here at home with regard to human suffering. With the election of Obama, it is my hope that Americans will once again take the lead in caring for our brothers and sisters everywhere.
Here are just some of the places where you can help and learn more!

Aotearoa-New Zealand Refugee Services

As a Republican, I voted for Barak Obama. I did not necessarily vote for all of his program ideas, but I did vote for his vision and his leadership. However, Americans must be aware of a looming danger with respect to the election. Americans suffer from the Messiah Complex.
This is not meant in a religious context, although it does apply there as well, but rather with respect to our growing trend to rely upon someone else to save us from our ‘selves.’ Americans have moved away from any sense of self-reliance to a state of total dependence concerning almost every facet of life. Since the Great Depression, people have sought the solutions to problems from the government. There is no question that in some areas this has been justified, but the growing reliance on Washington to meet every social, economic, environmental and societal need with a ‘program’ has diminished our freedom.
Freedom implies responsibility. To be free, you must accept the consequences of your choices and your actions. The eight years of the Bush Administration is evidence of what can be lost when the people fail to take responsibility for their lives, their country and their nation’s policies. Economic chaos, failed foreign policies, educational mayhem and climate degradation are but a few areas in which reliance on others have not served our best interests.
President Obama cannot solve all of your problems, nor should he. He will not save you from mass commercialism. He will not, as he said, turn your TV’s off and insist your child does school work. He will not turn off your lights to save energy. He will not demand that ‘you’ demand eco-friendly products. He will not buy your non-polluting detergents and cleaners. He will not make you stop using plastic sippy cups and baby bottles that are poisoning your children. He will not stop you from feeding your family junk foods that are turning our youth into ‘Generation ADD.’ He will not make you or your children exercise to burn off the pounds of excess fat. He will not mend broken relationships. He will not make you love your neighbor and treat others with respect and dignity.
People must come to understand that the solution to life’s most pressing issues come from within. On the one hand, Obama is the product of a seed that was planted by many who feel that the world is ready for a new vision; a vision that proclaims that we can live in balance and harmony with our selves and our environment. But Obama is just one plant that has come to fruition. This one plant cannot feed all of the masses. The vision that has slept within us all must now see the light of day if we are truly to create a new reality. The messiah within must rise from the ashes and declare that it is now ready, willing and able to take responsibility for the world in which we live. Do not lay it at the feet of Barak Obama. If you do, the worst of what has been foreseen for 2012 may well come to pass.
With the election of 2008 we have been given an opportunity and, hopefully, it is an opportunity not lost on the general population. We, not Barak Obama, can show the world that we once again embrace the principles of our ‘founding fathers.’ We can take the lead is solving the issues of poverty, global warming, human degradation and economic slavery. It is we, The People, who must embrace Obama’s vision and make it a reality. Obama is the catalyst but he is not the savior. It is we, The People, who must do the saving and once again take the lead in making this a better world.
