The headline reads “Neil Armstrong’s Ashes Scattered at Sea”, so what is it that draws us to this man Neil Armstrong that the world stops to notice, and pay homage to the man that said“One small step for man, one giant step for mankind”?
The man that soared the skies and first walked on the moon ignited our mind to the dream of a better would, and the promise that anything was possible to man. He was the best of us above and beyond politics. There was no lie, no Hollywood red carpet, only a man’s foot that gently touched another world.
We grieve his loss, even today, because we have lost all our heroes, we have lost all those that we can believe in. Where in this world are the leaders that we can believe in — Harper ( ha ), Obama, he, with his grand speeches, has let his believers down, and he is only the best because he is not the worst. Mitt Romney, he has not yet found the right etch-a-sketch copy of himself to be a hero.
I lament that there is no one on the horizon of America or Canada, or in the West, where an honest, shoot from the hip kind of guy/gal can be found. Sorry, that person, or those of that caliber do exist, but the systems of government that are employed by America, and by Canada, are so corrupt, so undemocratic, and oppressive to truth and the cause of freedom that anyone sincere and honest and with the slightest sniff of being good for Americans, or Canadians would be crushed by their corrupted governmental machines and the stifling systems manufactured to maintain the lie.
So I say to West, shake off the shackles of the corruption that holds you staked to a lie. A vote is no more democracy than Russia has democracy by virtue of its vote. Dust from your eyes the illusion that we have leaders that are leading us to a good place. Awake, there is no reason than to just survive.
