Here is a list of the things that “they” will attempt to use to distract you from the reality and discredit me.
Some people will say I’m crazy for providing this information. I believe the opposite.
I want to offer these here for a few reasons:
1) I have written poetry, essays and songs about, as well as lectured on all aspects of my life. My life is an open book, two of them actually. I embrace my past as well as my present, while preparing for our brighter future.
2) I am attempting something which has never been done before. A person who is running for elected office who is 100% up front with the community. I am trusting the people to make an educated decision based on a clear choice. I think when presented with the option my community will choose to do better. Call it a social experiment if you like. I am running a campaign based on truth, transparency as well as experience. What a novel idea. I hope it catches on.

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
– Winston Churchill
“Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.”
– Assata Shakur
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle.”
– Frederick Douglass
