Many of you may know that I have entered the race of governor and have heretofore imagined my purpose there to help supply needed sane policy for public debate and awareness, without asking to win your vote. My feelings have changed pivoting on the eve of Gov. Shumlin's support for the B-35's. Because of the complete lack of peaceful leadership I now want to win the election, possible maybe only by miracle. Our campaign is looking for 100 good women to work on a volunteer basis until the election, if you are one of these women, please contact us.
We want to travel Vermont with a veggie-powered truck and trailer with a cafe on it, built from industrial hemp, to educate and demonstrate the critical necessity of hemp agriculture to meet the needs of our future. We estimate that we need to raise $50,000 to get it done and we appeal to those who agree. It's the Rollaway Hemp cafe, and the beauty of it is that it can be a business venue for someone in the aftermath of the election, serving hemp ice cream, organic coffee and occu-pies, possibly.
In short, we are promoting the Vermont Pledge: Off of oil in 5 and All Organic in 5.
It dismays me so entirely to see the full Vermont national political contingent support the military expansion of fighter jet B-35 in Burlington. That support tells me that the darker of two masters rules these men, making them too afraid to support peaceful means and ends.
That is not to say that there
I am a get-er-done type of person using "laser-like focus" to reach my goal (a friend's description). I have useful leadership skills including but not limited to: my lack of fear and my capacity to keep cool under pressure, my complete concern for honesty and integrity, and my personal satisfaction in other's healthy happiness. I am free of greed.
I will enjoy standing up to insane and deeply criminal policy such as has become the norm from Washington, D.C. (via Wall Street), and to do so in a matter of fact manner that will be very healing to all involved. I do not believe in feeding greed, or perversion of any kind, with the light of my personal happiness here to shed light on the road map to policy that will restore happiness, health, abundance and honor to the people of our State.
It will be personally satisfying to oversee the work we have before us to meet the Vermont Pledge. Moreover to alter my own practices for the better much sooner in good company. It will be further rewarding to see sleeves rolled up, and everyone working for the goal of the Vermont Pledge that is so good, so honorable and in the end, mandatory. The lightness of heart and spirit we'll experience as we remove the blood on our hands by removing our support and need of foreign petroleum, will uplift us all. Our caring troops (who now commit suicide in droves after signing up for education and service) will actually receive real, loving support through our actions and deeds. It will be so very good to demonstrate how value can be easily exchanged with tools of our current monetary system, good to see we will be able to accomplish all we want, and how everyone will be rewarded for productivity.
Productivity feels good. But productivity that causes harm to the Earth, or depends on exploiting or oppressing others comes with a shadow and dims its shine. Thus, Vermont Yankee, the fact that your version of green includes radioactive energy holds too many people hostage and you are now operating against Vermont law. With my leadership, Vermont law will be followed first and foremost as described by our Constitution. The complete lack of integrity to continue to operate while the evacuation routes are completely compromised is outrageous. I won't stand for it. If you of VY want to stay in Vermont we will employ you in greener technologies, once you are free from your VY closure responsibilities. I will direct our Vermont forces to protect our right and duty to grow industrial hemp if D.C. persists in illegal prohibition.
