I Need Signatures to Run for the Presidency of the United States

I am seeking enough signatures to run for the Presidency of the United States and I am posting this in my blog for the world to see.

I am the Internet Equality Candidate! I’m Transgender and Lesbian AND I want to be on the 2016 Presidential Ballot!

My agenda is simple:
1) LGBTQ Equal Rights across the board– anyone who violates any policy regarding Marriage Equality, Employment Anti-Harassment / Discrimination Policies, or are turned away for seeking proper medical care will be strictly dealt with including fines and/or possible imprisonment.

2) Gun Control? NO! Criminal Control! This is only common sense… Limiting the guns these mentally infirm people can purchase and own, by having an IQ and a psychological battery performed per new gun owner, to help weed out the mentally-unstable among us who could potentially be a threat. No more are we going to ban guns, just ban the potential threats from having and owning guns. This just makes sense.

3) Bringing back manufacturing jobs to the US! There are people willing to work these jobs who have little to no experience, and are willing to be responsible to help keep American products flowing into the marketplace. Training allowances for the unskilled employees and their employers. I would even make concessions for an up to 5% Federally-funded 401k package!

4) Tax breaks for Low Income and Poverty-Stricken families who work!

5) Elimination of Obamacare! — this just needs to be wiped off the books, reclaiming those funds and placing them where they were removed, and reordering the new taxes to be rescinded.

6) Reinstatement of the United States Military — self-explanatory

7) Reinstatement of the US Space Program (a.k.a. NASA) — self-explanatory

8) Minimum Standards in Education with Federal Placement Exams (FPE). Students that cannot pass the requirements of the FPE will remain in the grade until she can pass to graduate into the next grade. We have too many students who cannot read past the 6th Grade Level in the US, and are passed through because of incompetent teachers or lack of responsible parents who cannot pass these same tests. Other countries have this type of system and they’re WAY ahead of us in every aspect of education.

9) Immigration Reform. Far too often we hear “amnesty” from those politicians in power. “Amnesty for Illegals” is the wrong thing to do. I will demand that these people either become US Citizens or go back to their homeland. Sorry, no more Free Lunches!

10) “We are not the World’s Police.” JFK told us this oh so long ago and every president since must have missed that telecast! I’m sorry, I believe we need to be able to protect ourselves from whatever the world may throw at us. I’m not saying that we’re never going to assist anyone anywhere, but that we will be picking out battles more cautiously and go to bat with allies and not go it alone. This Syria business is unpopular with millions of Americans and Obama believes in helping the rebels… I don’t believe in funding terrorists on their own soil, to have it come back to haunt us later!

11) Religious equality for Places of Worship. Muslims, Christians, Judaism and other religions have the right to purchase and build Places of Worship, yet Wiccans and other Pagan religions, which are valid here in the US under the “Freedom of Religion” bits of the Constitution, cannot purchase property for the building of a Place of Worship. Wiccans (and Pagan Religions) are NOT “Devil Worshipers” like many non-Wiccan/Pagans believe. Other religions can build Temples, Mosques, Churches or Shrines, but not for Houses of Worship or Schools of Teaching. As with any Church (for lack of a better catch all term), there is learning and indoctrination going on with that particular religion, and there’s no call for not allowing the Wiccan religion to be able to do more, since it is a recognized religion by our Federal government.

I am looking for more items to add to this list, as it is not yet complete. I am also running as part of the Truth Brigade! No politician has ever been truthful about their past or about what they’re doing as Our President. Hidden and Mysterious Agendas abound and we’re the ones who get caught up in the crossfire! Political Action groups (PACs) are wiggling their ways into the pockets of politicians and earmarking monies that should be used to offset our massive deficit, repay and lower out debt ceiling, and to give back to the American Populace, while that same money lines the pockets of career politicians so the voices they are supposed to represent are never heard.

The career politicians are part of the problem and not a part of the solution. Term limits will be imposed on the House of Representatives and the Senate. A maximum of two terms, then a hiatus of at least one term before they can run again. This will ensure more and fresh representatives and Senators in these law-making houses. Fresh ideas and fresh faces for our Government!

There’s so much to do, so much to say. I am trans and lesbian. I am the right candidate for the job! My agenda is an agenda set in truth. We need to be able to instill confidence in Our Nation! We need to be able to have an economic stability in Our Nation, to instill international confidence in our products and our financial system! We need to be independent of outsiders loaning us money to jack up the debt ceiling. I will start offering up the salaries of the Senators and Representatives as repayment toward the National Debt! Product endorsements will be used to offset other debt that Our Nation is accruing! Should I go golfing, for example, I pay out of my own pocket and wear certain sponsored attire; those sponsorships’ monies will be funneled into Government Programs and Responsible Charities to help the homeless, the needy and destitute, poverty-stricken, low-income, medically-needy and the elderly! I’m sorry, but this is the New Agenda!

All I ask is just a little assistance. I am needing signatures for the petition to include my name on the 2016 Voters’ Ballot and the costs of filing my petition. Anyone willing to assist me in this– a signature and/or financial assistance for the filing feels– just comment below and let me know. You can also e-mail me to let me know.

Thank you! The Internet Equality Candidate. I am Robynn P. Mussell, Independent. Thank you for your time and patience.

Midnight Revelation

Not sure where to put this or how to express how I truly feel, but that’s why we blog, isn’t it?

Over this week I’ve been trying to help the 16-year old daughter of my friends, with whom I’m am a guest in their home (along with their 18-year old, and another 6 (2 additional girls and 4 boys) ranging from 11(?) to 2 years) and have been for almost a month.  They wanted a 2-week trial, and I stepped it up and ran with it; they accepted me:  all of them.  Most of the youngest call me “uncle”, but the oldest 3 call me “aunt”; we’re not related, but I don’t really mind.  I miss that kind of family life.

I’m going to be filling out an employment application at a local insurance telemarketing agency that P had worked for previously.  I am so nervous.  I have been living as a woman since October (2012), and the gentleman who owns the place is a nice man and a pastor of a local church. P informed me of a few things:  dress less like a woman and more like a man when filling out the app and for the interview (just land the job, you can carry on from there); earn some money and start getting the things you’re going to need; upon employment, we had agreed I’d pay some into the household for my living expenses.  I feel I’m making strides, but backwards in this situation.  I’m a woman, not a man.  That was something I hoped I’d never go back to!  The Manly Life!  I’m a woman and that’s all there is to it!

I have struggled to make things happen and convince people in the community that I am a woman.  I carry a purse.  I wear my hair a certain way.  I wear makeup, but not excessively.  I dress in women’s clothing!  I know, deep inside, that a woman is who I am– not the manly facade that I had to create to keep my father happy about his son– and I don’t want to do back on that!  Ever!  I had a tough time with it around my former landlord when I came out to him and my former fiancee.  He told me that I was not to cross-dress on his property; he was afraid of his grandchildren asking too many questions about me.  I told him he wouldn’t have to worry.  Almost a week later, I moved out.  I felt insecure.  I felt exposed; almost to the point of complete nakedness!

I knew I had a place to go.  P&M’s!  That’s months ago!

Being here, living with P&M (this is a different P&M than the first one) and their 8 children (the other P&M only had 1 child) is different and kind of fun.  Many of them have mental issues, problems with interacting with others, ADD, habitual lying, and other such disorders… (Wow!  I fit right in! LOL)  P has told me that she can say stuff without thinking, and I told her that was fine.  A small incident happened, and I let it go; P apologized to me about it.  If I don’t hear it, that’s fine.  If I do, I can and have been known to take offense.  I tend to let it roll off my back; she means no harm or malice toward me.

My bras have been feeling like fiberglass lately.  Not sure if it’s something related to the high humidity, my perspiration, my deodorant, the laundry detergent or a combination of those that’s making any kind of bra uncomfortable to wear.  It seems that I may have misplaced my power adapter for my electric razor and my sunglasses case; they are somewhere in this house!  I had them moving into the split bedroom, but I cannot find them to save my life.  I just don’t get it; they don’t just get up and walk away!  One of the older kids may have taken them to school not realizing what they were, realizing what they were and wanted to sell or get rid of them, or hid them on me to find months from now.  I really needed my sunglasses today!  My eyes were bugging out of my head, and I was not impaired by a sinus infection.  They hurt like that sometimes.

Found the cord to my razor!  I remember putting something there (one of my cloth grocery shopping bags) and had forgotten it was there.  Oops!  Sorry, kids!  That could mean that my sunglasses could be in here, too!  Hooray!

I don’t necessarily want to revisit my male alter-ego again.  I don’t!  I did things that I regret; I did things that I didn’t, but it all comes down to who I know I am!  I guess I’m living in the past, dwelling on things that I regret, and not finding a way to resolve them.  Maybe my father was reading into something that I didn’t know, or acknowledge, after my mother died; I may never know.  If this is how things are supposed to be, then why does this interview/employment app scare me?  I don’t want to step back into the cowl of darkness and re-explore my demons, my darkness, my testosterone-fueled short fuse-snapping anger fits!  That in itself scares me!

I live in the Bible Belt of the US!  Mississippi!  In a tiny little town, where I can walk about 400 feet to the public library out the front door.  I can walk to the closest grocery store about 8 blocks away.  In that same distance I can cut through the hospital-dedicated exercise path and reach the duck pond.  Much of the things that are in this town are within walking distance.  Walk across the street, same side as the house and library, and where the library sits, there’s a big white Baptist church!  No joke!  There’s a mental health counselor on the main street only about 5 blocks from here.  (I wonder whether they can help someone like me from the LGBTQ community.  If not, I can grab the information online for them to take a look and go from there.  Otherwise, I’d have to go to Gulfport!  That’s about a 8 hour drive, one way, and I don’t have a car!)

I am uneasy.  I am nervous.  I am wondering about this possible job and that I need employment; just stick to it, and I will prosper.  I know all that!  I want to do it my way!  That’s what I want.  Just really scared…  I do have some anxiety with this ‘reversion’ and I’m not liking it.

Wish me luck.  I’m turning in for the night…  Please pray for me and we’ll see where this goes.

Thanks.

The New Pope – Pope Francis I

This is something that I thought would not happen, ever.  A former pope resigns his post for essentially being ineffectual in the lives of Catholics.  Other than that, I will not try to comment and assail him for being the pope in a turbulent time with lots of finger-pointing, blame-casting and other such irrepressible ineffectualism.

It seems that the Catholic church is becoming more ineffectual with every step.  A new pope seems to be a decent choice.  Someone from the Western Hemisphere who has some idea of the course Humanity is facing, the equality of all of us LGBTQ and to see where he stands on it.  Like most people who claim to be Christian, and/or Good Christians, many tend to take their beliefs and skew the Bible to fit their rhetoric.  What Jesus taught us was to be honest and open about those with whom we interact with in our daily lives; love without compromise or condition, and to be understanding in the face of adversity.

It’s a better proposition, this open letter (Open Letter to the New Pope), a gay father lists five rules he uses when he’s teaching his two ten-year olds about life and not twisting the words of a revered text.  Jesus was sent by God to die for us, upon the cross, and to wash away our sins.  With the blood shed, we all have been forgiven in the eyes of God– we just have to acknowledge Jesus died for us and believe Jesus died for us.  In this single selfless act, Jesus made us all equal, in the eyes of God.

I also understand that there are many hateful Christians who believe that no one can ever be equal who does not believe they way they do.  To them, I say show me in the Bible or the Torah where it states God hates gays, lesbians, trans?  Where?  I want  scriptures and verses.  You can’t can you?  Well, can you?

Simply:  no.  In these holy books, God explains that love is all, peace comes from love.  Sodom and Gamorrah were cast asunder because of their sinful rulers and their idol-worshipping. not for what you might be thinking.  Yes, they had orgies, but that’s none 0f our business, was it?  God chose to take revenge upon them for blaspheming and Jesus had adequately warned them.

It is the honor and duty of God, and He himself, to judge others under the tenets of the Scripture and His Laws:  The Ten Commandments.  These too are open to interpretation, given this is not the Time When Jesus Walked the Earth.  We have a sacred duty to everyone who is Christian, and non-Christian alike, to love thy neighbor, do not speak ill of others, listen to and take the advice of your elders, don’t steal, don’t be envious of your neighbor’s/sibling’s belongings, don’t take upon yourself the wiles of your friends’ spouse (even if she/he decides to take it upon themselves to do unto you), remember the day of rest and keep it holy, forgive when people make you angry or sad or hurt when they themselves are being hurtful…  I could go on.

We all follow these to the best of our abilities, and those of you without sin (and there are none) cast the first stone.  By peddling in Religious Hate you are condemning yourselves to that which you condemn those of us that are gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgender, bisexual and queer to a fate worse than death– eternal damnation in Hell!  A right fitting end to all that hate, huh?

I want my readers to chime in about instances they’ve either witnessed or personally encountered when celebrating their LGBTQ status and to let me know how it was dealt with.  Please.  I don’t necessarily want the names of these religious fanatics, I just want situations where you felt disheartened and angry because someone was using religion to defame all of our proud (and closet) members of LGBTQ!  I will use these instances in a future blog and try to work out an effectual method to stifle their hateful rhetoric…

For the Ubiquitous Ugliness that Belies the Incorrigible

I think there’s a time and a place for everything.  It is the best thing that can become whatever we feel is necessary in our lives, the most important of all things, that of working through friendships and relationships, and taking it all in to deduce what’s right and just to make the best of things.  If I’m wrong, tell me.  If not, then allow me to continue…

I have been in this situation since last September (2012) and have been working to a culmination of various things, hoping that my decision is true and just for what I believe to be the crowning factor in what’s been a lie for over 20 years!  Nothing I have done or said to anyone has really been to hurt them, but to enlighten them to the fact that I’m pursuing a drastic change of lifestyle and demeanor. I never wanted those I considered my friends and family to turn their backs on me, snub me like a murder convict or as the “Scum of the Earth”, but that’s what happened when I told my former landlord, my former fiancee and a few (whom I considered) of my closest friends.  I felt like just abandoning life, running for the closest place I could to get away from everyone, and take my own life. …

I refused!  I told them, in my own way that I am just a human being.  I feel just like YOU!  I hurt just like YOU!  I bleed just like YOU!  I want my human rights just like YOUYOU’RE giving me nothing but anguish, hating me for my views and telling me off like I’m some kind of circus or sideshow freak!  I’m sorry that I’m not Lobster Boy or the Bearded Lady!  (ALL of these sideshow “freaks” were HUMAN, TOO, with FEELINGS and FAMILIES!  It was NOT their fault that YOU exploited them for YOUR sick and twisted amusement!)

Where have I gone wrong?  What have I done to deserve this kind of treatment?  I keep asking the same damn questions and I keep coming up with the same conclusions:  not a damn thing!  I know I’m just having problems with certain people and that they happen to get their facts tangled, then blame me for their misdirection.  It makes me feel like they’re trying to sabotage any relationship (friendship or business relationship) what we may have.  I struggle every day with acceptance and understanding for my acclimation and transition, but when that challenge is itself challenged, I tend to be defensive and unwilling to listen to anything these other people say– nothing– and I usually tune them out (or hang up on them, whichever is more convenient).

It kills me that there’s a bunch of ignorant and belligerent people who believe society is the way everything should be.  It also bothers me that there’s too many people who also think we have a binary gender system.  Not anymore!  All forms should have a list of choices for a person’s Gender:  Male, Female and Other!  This way, you don’t have to put yourself into the general binary gender system.  Why are there so many who fear us?  I’ve not done anything to anyone calling themselves Male or Female, nor have I caused them any harm.  I don’t really care what you call yourself, but I am a woman and I am that way because it’s not about the sum of my parts, but how I perceive and identify myself.  You no longer have control and I believe that’s what frightens you:  your society keeps telling you you’re doing the right thing, when obviously you’re not!

But how does my gender identity frighten you, when it’s not about you and how you feel?  “I think, therefore I am,” is a quote from some historical great thinker.  It makes some sense, but it belies a much deeper meaning than just those five words.  “I exist because I think.” … “I exist because I can think.” … “I exist because I choose to think.”  The fact that individuals can understand being is knowing and that knowledge is power should take to the streets and assist us in our personal struggles, where I believe that’s the stuff the flock is looking out for that makes them afraid of those who are like me, my brothers- and sisters-in-arms, and our supporters.  Why should they be afraid of us?  Sweden and the UK, even Ireland and Russia, Thailand, Japan, China and Canada all have transgendered and intersexed citizens, why can’t we?  Why do we not rate among the World Society?  As US citizens and many of us hold professional positions, vote, and pay taxes, why can’t we get the care, the medications and the services we need to help us become whole?

Fear.  That’s all it is…  Simple fear.  The politicians are scrambling to quell the onslaught of our LGBTQ community, though a healthy smattering, 30 to 35%, cross-dress or are closet homosexuals.  Another 2 to 5% are hiding their transgender status.  Yet another 1 to 3% are stating one gender when they are truly intersexed.  It all comes down to societal fear, and the yearning to be a generic normal.  Newsflash:  there is no generic or societal normal anymore!  I am a single member of this great nation, the US of A, and I am a single member of the LGBTQ community, through no fault of my own, and I am proud to be who I am and not the sum of my parts!

Knowledge is Power.  This has been blasted into me since I was old enough to read, write and comprehend!  I know many of us are Christian in some fashion, and that some of us are of other religious systems, but what bothers me most:  I see many of you harboring a deep-seated resentment or hatred for your fellows in religion.  Don’t call this a Holy War!  God made His flock in His image to help us to mend what we’ve broken, love unconditionally, and to never hate and envy our neighbors!  If you’re not religious, then it’s all to perpetuate love and kindness to all!  Karma can be well-deserved in any form it chooses, Good or Bad, benefiting or hurting whomever had made their choice.  I consider myself Wiccan and Christian, as both are symbolic of a Greater Love and Affinity for Life!  I would hope you, as fear-seekers, would just stop being prejudicial against what you don’t understand, open your minds and hearts to what we’re trying to explain, and allow our message to help guide you to be more understanding to what we are asking, as a whole, ending the violence and anti-LGBTQ policies and bills that you are trying to pass into law.  Allow us our freedoms and we will show you just how much like you we truly are!

Consider this.  I blog when I have been unjustly blasted, either verbally or physically, by someone I thought I could trust.  I cannot stand idly by and let people do this to me, nor can I delve into the possibilities that would compromise our collective safety, but I will notify and work out the pain, hurt and transgressions I feel, openly and with those of you who can honestly say “Hey, I know You!  I’ve been there. … How can I help?”  I am working through an exceptionally tough time right now and I want anyone who reads my blogs to, at least, have some kind of awareness that I am in need of assistance.  Nothing is needed more than to get “my transition on”.  I have few options, minimal funds and a loving wonderful family (family, friends and associates whom I consider my extended family) who are struggling as we all are in this horrendous economy.

I am looking toward alternatives for getting what I need for my transition, but I am seriously struggling in every aspect:  naysayers, non-believers and the prejudiced.  I put them out of my mind and take matters into my own hands (non-violently, of course).  I need more than just assistance:  I need more caring and loving friends, colleagues and acquaintances.  We all do.  My brothers- and sisters-in-arms do as well, and there’s almost no help for us medically…  Why?  Politicians and hateful/prejudicial Christian fear-mongering.  That’s all it is.  If someone at work is part of our LGBTQ community, then pull her aside, say something kind to her, and rally behind her when she needs it most.  Take up your pens and write to your state representatives to start more LGBTQ initiatives; help us get he medical treatment we need, the health assistance we have the right to, and bolster us when we fall.

I just want all of us to be happy and healthy.  Why can’t we?

The Election and Real Problems

According to sources that are all over the media outlets, Obama’s going to pay for his Obamacare by charging an additional 20% across the board for additional Federal taxes.  The Feds are already taking about 38% already from most of the Americans who have good full-time jobs.  That’s 58% out of your paychecks every time you get paid, then you have to contribute to Obamacare to keep your family healthy.  Also, once you are no longer a ‘recoverable asset’ in the tenets of Obamacare, you will either be taken somewhere to live out the last few days (e.i. death camp) or given a pill (i.e. chemical euthanasia) to force you out of the system.

This is ALL on top of a 50% reduction in the US military force, across the board, and the physical items and vehicles are stuck where they are– the only changeable and mutable force in any military as in any company is it’s personnel!  That’s RIGHT!  50% of American military personnel will be out of a job come the New Year!  What are we going to do about it?

Well, the only other ‘candidate’ that’s on the ballot is Romney!  Romney’s just an older wealthy rich kid who thinks privilege is his right and screw everyone who is not part of his elitist crowd.  He’s going to put an end to Planned Parenthood, the EPA, Obamacare (YAY!), try to rectify the Chinese Loanshark Deficit and working to correct the jobs dilemma and the economy problems.

Romney’s going to need at least two terms of 6 years to correct the Obama Blunderhead!  Yes, 6 years!  If it takes 2 to start the reversal of fortunes that the previous president started, then someone’s going to need an additional 4 to get it put back on the right track– not necessarily the right path– because we NEED to get people ensconced in making America Great, NOT making America the laughing stock of the World!

What we need is a solution that’s not going to be a corruption of power, but a reinvention of the American Dream!  Romney’s view is that from a pair of rose-colored glasses from his teenage years:  never really the true color of America, but he can still navigate and direct traffic.  Obama thinks that we need to be pidgeonholed into little slices of society or medical problems and dealt with as broken or irredeemable to work because of his Obamacare taxing American workers and siphoning off our hard-earned money to fund the unfundable!!!

I have a plan to take the Next Step.  It requires everyone to look where they are.  It requires everyone to imaging where we’ll be in the next 4 years!  We will either be jobless, homeless and in a work/death camp (Obama) or we’ll have fewer jobs, more taxes to fund a broken deficit (but fewer than with Obamacare) and struggling from paycheck to paycheck (much like we are now) with Romney, while Romney and his Elitist 1% get all the tax breaks they want!

Here’s my plan:  Vote for me.  Write me in!  I will turn around the Government by making it smaller, but the states a little bigger in their responsibilities.  I will tell China to “Get Bent!” and give them back whatever I can to ensure a balanced budget– including cutting off Free Trade from them and Wal-Mart’s use of Chinese product and offer low-cost, good-quality product from American Manufacturers– all while imposing tariffs and fines on ANY companies sending jobs overseas!  That money will go directly to bolster our deficit– Do not pass Goldman-Sachs; Do not kickback the PAC groups– and get our country back in the BLACK!

I’m want women to choose, with a physician’s advice, whether to abort a child.  I believe in equal rights for all– not just for SOME– and never being more equal than others!  I want equal rights for all LGBTQ people, minorities and anyone in school!  I want American workers to know that their jobs are safe AND I’m not shipping them overseas!  I want single-parents to understand that you can work from home, manage a household and STILL make ends meet– you just need the right tools and the proper training– and internet for everyone to accomplish that goal!

I will never compromise on the American People!  You should never compromise on a Presidential Candidate!  You are all my brothers and sisters, inhabitants of our Great Nation!  Go to the polls and cast your vote!

A vote for me is a vote for America!  A vote for America is a vote FOR YOU!
