Why do your guests think that their expressed views are so generally belittled by so many Americans?

When there is wisdom in them. :)

During the show, one of Michael's guests brought up an organization called CHARACTER COUNTS!. Michael thought that this was a right-wing Christian group. I think he may be confusing them with Dr. James Dobson's "Focus on the Family". According to their website, CHARACTER COUNTS! is the most widely implemented approach to character education. It's a nonprofit, nonpartisan, nonsectarian framework that teaches the Six Pillars of Character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

Can a corrupt political system reform itself? Yes, if the people chose to reform it. Can it be done peacefully? Gandhi did it, sort of. But the Indian political system is very corrupt. So how would you do it? Or... how would WE do it? Hard to say really. After the 2000 election I was very angry and truly shocked by how ignorant the few citizens who voted for Bush actually think that Bush won. Or should I say; "That Bush won in a fair election."? Then for this criminal organization to arrogantly pull it off again, yet this time with the blatant help of John Kerry and the truly embedded Democratic knee walkers. I was fooled. I was duped. I was so angry with myself for actually falling for one of the most wishy washy members of Skull & Bones. I should have known better in the first place. I should have remained a Green Party member and VOTED as a Green Party member and at least just like four years before and the four years before that and the four years BEFORE THAT, I could honestly say that I voted for a human being for president. But alas, is there really any such thing as a fair election? Has there EVER been a fair presidential election in the last thirty or so years? I don't think so. That all went out with the Kennedy's. And/or maybe I'm even wrong about that. All the same, after experiencing the sheer and blatant criminal arrogance of a handful of corporate mafioso's and their gleeful hijacking of the People's White House in Washington, D.C., I of course became very depressed. And as a spiritualist who practices meditation and metaphysical pursuits I eventually snapped myself out of my stupor, my incredulous amazement at the blindness of so many and yet in reality, so, so few sheepish Americans. Then I went within as I remembered to do as I was trained and I asked my spirit guides/my higher self, to show me what was REALLY going on. It was revealed to me, an image of a paralel timeframe that matches that of the Roman Empire. And I was streamed a multitude of images of these small children kicking and screaming as they were eventually overtaken by loving, caring arms where they were carressed and kissed and hugged and helf against the bosom of the creator while a new age dawned. And it was then that I had come to the realization that the piscean era and those young souls who's false personalities were completely caught up in the illusion of greed, power, control, materialism and lust were kicking and screaming as this era was now in it's final death throws and the new era of the Aquarian was now here. Not in full force yet, but arriving all the same. A more humane and gentle feminine energy which is WHY we see such devastating and violent upheaval around the planet. The Mature souls are now becoming a majority and the Infant, Baby and Young souls are quickly being outnumbered. Go get yourself a Hummer while the oil still lasts! That's the Piscean, masculine patriarcal dominator having a heart attack. They have (we have) if you believe in re-incarnation already gone through this before and some remember the lessons and those who lead the governments, the military's and the mega-corporations either DO NOT remember or maybe they volunteered to remind the rest of us of who we really are. The soul who was Hitler took on a very tough task. As did all the souls who experienced the other end of the stick. Our false personalities/ego's scream about the attrocities from Ghengas Khan to Hitler to Musolini to Hirohito to those who were responsible for droping the nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki when it was already widely known by the then president and his top military advisors in the Pentagon that the Japanese were already defeated and were literally on the verge of surrender. So it goes on and on this game that the young s'ouls play. And we too have played these games ourselves. That is why Jesus said judge thyself before you judge others. Even IF you think that you are free of sin (to miss the target) in this lifetime, there may very well be many karmic ribbons yet for you or I to burn. Personally, I feel very sorry for George W. Bush. He has a heavy,m heavy burdon to bear. And that is WHY he has chosen self-imposed ignorance and a personality of numbing arrogance, so that he can get himself through these attrocities so that millions upon millions if not billions of human sould may learn some very hard lessons more rapidly. To accelerate soul evolution on a masive scale. Now is the time to choose to wake yourself from the wakeful sleep, the illusion we call life on earth. Only then will we WILL ourselves to change consciousness here on the physical plane. To change the government we must change ourselves. Life is FULL of choices every single day, every single minute and every single second. What will YOU choose?
