You are unique. There is no one else like you anywhere within this universe. This uniqueness makes you a threat to certain political and media elements because you are powerful, a force to be reckoned with. Hence these elements will do everything in their power to control and manipulate you. They will use every force at their disposal to ensure you stay obedient to them. These political elements consider themselves above you, they demean you, and they demand your loyalty. But you are better than they, stronger than they are, and more important than they are. You are one of a kind.
So you have a choice: Live free and prosper, or live in misery and despair, always terrified of being called some name.
The Reason for the Season
And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
And the angel came in unto her, and said Hail , thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou has found favour with God.
And behold thou shall conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. (Luke 1: 26-33)
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem... To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room form them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold I bring you good tiding of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, laying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. (Luke 2: 1, 3-14)
On December 25 we celebrate a birthday, the birthday of the greatest man
who ever walked the face of the Earth.
So with that I wish all a very Merry Christmas and a great and Happy New Year.
Peace on Earth, Good Will towards men.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not parish, but have everlasting life.
How dare we squander such a precious gift. How dare our politicians destroy our future, and the future of our children. How dare they use tragedy to enhance their own worthless existence. And they call it compassion.
But more than that, how dare we, as individuals, doubt our own abilities and question our own worth. If God thought our planet was worth saving, if He thought mankind was not worth the effort, then why, why did He send His only Son to save us?
We are not infallible and as a nation we can fall into the pits of despair and desolation. When we, as a people, as a nation turn our back on this most precious gift, then we deserve to fall. But we are a good people, we are a great people and we must always remind ourselves of that. We are worth saving.
Never quit believing in the magic of the season, for it is a time of miracles. So Merry Christmas and to all a good night.
Values for a Better Life
What are values? How do you know a value? When you see it? When you feel it? Can you actually explain what a value is? Can you define it?
These were questions I myself was having problems answering so I went looking for answers. What I found is what inspired this section and me being me I didn't want to keep the answer to myself. Now anybody can find these answers if they want to, if they have a desire to but the sad fact is, most people, especially young people don't what to know what values are, much less ethics and morality. Why? Because we have allowed liberalism and political correctness to dictate the way we think, what we think, and the way we are suppose to feel and act.
Political correctness is destroying this country and we the people have allowed it. Why? Because Hollyweird, the elite media, and politicians have decided that values are "old fashion" and need to be discarded, if not down-right outlawed. Yet our values are the only thing which holds this country together. If we lose them we lose the country, and our way of life.
Values can be either good or bad, it all depends upon you, your personality, what you think, and how you feel. For me I look at values as a positive thing, something to look up to, to strive for, and to help me understand there is more to life than just my small vision of the world.
In order to help understand values I have included three values on this page. Each time I update this page these values will change, however instead of waiting on me to address them I am providing the link to where I got them: The Steve Pavlina website. This way you can select those values which mean the most to you.
Values to Consider:
ASSERTIVENESS: Being self-assured and confident without being aggressive.
CONFIDENCE: A state of mind, positive thinking, knowledge, and training enough to take on any project or task.
DEXTERITY: Having or obtaining a skill necessary to perform a task.

The Politics of Self-Improvement
Promoting Prosperity and Growth Though Self-Reliance
Exactly what is the Politics of Self-Improvement?
Simply stated it is a method to illustrate how the politics of today is affecting your life in a most negative way. It is to encourage you to become the best you can be by rising above political correctness and the impact of negative social media.
There are numerous self-help websites on the internet today but no one has ever thought about self-improvement in a political way, that is until this website came along. Consider the following facts, and they are facts:
- It is not God who keeps you in poverty but rather politicians who demand your loyalty by "giving" you "free" stuff.
- There is nothing noble about being poor – only the stupid and ignorant believe that and this conviction is encouraged by both the politicians and the main stream media.
- There is nothing evil in desiring more. Liberals demand more all the time. And they demand you give them more.
By keeping you poor and discourage the political entities of today know you will obey their every whim. This belief is supported by the main stream media which themselves are as corrupt as the politicians themselves. Social media follows the same formula and has become a cesspool of lies, more lies, and liberalism.
There is nothing noble about being a liberal, in fact it is a gutless choice because it is so easy to be a liberal. Liberalism demands feelings and emotions, not critical thinking. Hence everything a liberal does always fails. And it always will. Is there an alternative?
And that alternative is what this website is all about. True there are other items on this website other than politics but to encourage you to become your best is the primary focus. I let that issue get away from me lately, but I've never forgotten about it.
I let life get in the way of my mission, to encourage you to be your best. And you cannot be your best as long as you let politics dictate your life. You may think politics has no effect on you, but you are wrong. Politics controls every aspect of our lives these days, freedom is now a by-word and a memory. But there is hope and it starts with you. How?
The first step is recognition. Once you realize how politics controls your actions you can actually set priorities for you life and work around those political controls. Politics cannot control you if you don't permit. The problem is, and it is a problem not a challenge, most people do not recognize how deeply engrained politics is in their day-to-day existence. But now you know, and knowing is at least half the battle.
Now you must determine what is really important in your life – mindless television or your family. You and you alone must set that priority.
Despite the best effort of political correctness you and you alone can and must determine the course of your life.
