Day 10 – Storm on the Horizon

28 Jun

A view of a Thunderhead on the Horizon in Pueblo County, Colorado

Often people say “what can one person do to make a difference”, or “I can’t do anything, I am only one person”.

What we have to remember is that everything is made up of a collective of “just one”.  Like that thunderstorm on the horizon – just one water particle would hardly be visible or perhaps ‘meaningful’, but all together, those particles are very very strong.

The powers that be tend to divide us; we categorize each other into this or that faction, we fight each other based off of affiliation or ideology, we focus on the problems versus being actionable in our own solutions.  We are smart people, and we are capable of helping ourselves.

Fearing an outcome is a waste of time, and yet we are afraid.  Each of us has within us the power to shape our own lives – if we take control of this, then as a collective we re-engage our liberty.  You see, we are “just one”, but if we focus on ourselves, our communities and country will grow stronger.

So perhaps a list of action-items to start working on would be helpful.  We will be working on this throughout our journey, and will look forward to any input our followers and communities may have.

Day 2 – Solar Power AMAZING Force for Liberty

19 Jun

Tisha Casida, Independent Candidate for Colorado's 3rd Congressional District

Today was a day to remember the potential of solar power (and wind for that matter) in Southern Colorado.  Now, there are other resources to be tapped as well (like natural gas and oil), however, there is often an abundance of sun and today, while campaigning on the corner of 1st Street and Santa Fe in Pueblo, I got to really experience that.  Solar Roast Coffee, a local coffee store that uses a proprietary solar-powered roaster to roast their beans, actually started its operations in Pueblo because of that sun-potential.  A powerful espresso drink, made with organic coffee beans and a renewable resource – AMAZING.  I love this country.

Sunday –  a day of rest – we praised our blessings earlier at a mass at Holy Family Parish.  Then it was off to meet WE THE PEOPLE.  With my “Will Work for Liberty” sign and flags, we handed out cards and shook hands while enjoying the beautiful day.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, what your background is, how much money you have, or what your political affiliation is – we are here to be a voice and a vehicle for connecting our communities together.  It is time to put government back in control of the people – and that starts right here with you and me.

To tomorrow,

Tisha

Packing Up

18 Jun

After a lot of thinking, talking, and praying, I have decided it is time to start the journey.

It has been many many years since I read “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, however, for some reason that is what keeps going through my head when I think about traveling through Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, which is over 54,000 square miles.

I, and sometimes “we”, (if I can get my dog and/or campaign manager to come with me), will start traveling throughout the district, camping out at a KOA near you.

We are looking for 200,000 liberty-lovers over the next 17 months.  That is nearly 400 people per day (392.16 to be exact), so we are going to need your help.  There will be chocolate, beer, hot dogs, cigars, and pocket constitutions to be shared.  You can join us on Facebook and Twitter for updates and antidotes.

To the West!
