I Support The Convention of States 


There are two parts. Be sure to read the 2nd part (in  RED ).

  Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

  At 5, began studying under his cousin’s tutor.

  At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

  At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

  At 16, entered the College of William and Mary. Also could write in Greek with one hand while writing the same in Latin with the other.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe. 

At 23, started his own law practice. 

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses. 

At 31, wrote the widely circulated “Summary View of the Rights of British America”; and retired from his law practice. 

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress. 

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence. 

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia’s legal code, wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom. 

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia, succeeding Patrick Henry. 

At 40, served in Congress for two years. 

At 41, was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations, along with Ben Franklin and John Adams. 

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington. 

At 53, served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society. 

At 55, drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party. 

At 57, was elected the third president of the United States . 

At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase, doubling the nation’s size. 

At 61, was elected to a second term as President. 


At 65, retired to Monticello. 

At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine. 

At 81, almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first

At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence along with John Adams. 

Thomas Jefferson knew human nature and government because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man. That happens to be much more than what most of us understand today. Jefferson is a voice from the past to lead us in the future. 

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House, with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

Read the following wisdom:

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
— Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:   “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.   If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

I wish we could get this out to every American!  I’m doing my part. So please do yours.

Blueprint – Reconciling Liberal and Conservative Views On Achieving Domestic and Global Prosperity – 1

If you follow me on Facebook you know I am very energetically opposite the liberal agenda. You also know I recently wrote the formulas used historically to resolve differences do not work. America more divided than possibly at any other time in history including the Civil War. With all the resources available to us we continue to kill each other, violate each other and be at war.  The historical formulas for resolving problems do not work. We can keep doing  the same or choose to create a model that does.

…This Is The Beginning of Exploring The Options For A Solution

First Question – What Is Your Definition of Freedom?

Looking forward to your comments



Steve Pohlit, International Business Turnaround and Real Estate Investment Consultant

Looking forward to my week I have a number of very important responsibilities. There are my ongoing coaching appointments by phone, then I travel to coach on site for a few days in Utah. In between I am hosting a couple calls with several high profile people.

Those high profile people calls are the ones I think about nearly everyday as I am the host and I am accountable for making sure the discussions are relevant for the people who have paid money to be on these calls. I am very experienced in business, economics and much more. However, think about having to make sure an hour call is viewed as valuable by people paying alot of money to the firm that markets this program.

Coffee Break

I am giving you this background because I want you to understand what it means to move a business forward. I know from talking with a couple very successful people today that they are engaged in moving their business forward and address needed actions whether it is Sunday or not. That is how our country moves forward…entrepreneurs doing whatever it takes. Sunday…Friday Night….Saturday Morning…whenever!! You see there is an amazing opportunity to be creative, build business based on valuable products and services and none of this is tied to what happens at the federal state or local government level

Having said that, if you align with freedom of speech, democracy, the elimination of deficit spending by our governments and the right of all to pursue their life in freedom and peace then you must cast your vote for those who advocate business expansion without government interference, far less taxes and far less government.

Freedom Is Our Birthright…In Honor of Those Who Protect Our Freedom

Thank you God for all the men and women who protect the freedom of our country. Some gave all.

May all  of us who enjoy that freedom exercise our right stop the expansion of governmental  fiscal irresponsibility shattering the foundation of this country. May all of us who have liberty as mandated by our original constitution begin today to “Just Say No”  to the  the rules and regulations that remove our right to live our intentions in freedom and peace.

I am proud to be an American

I am not proud of the liberty and freedom we have relinquished to bureaucracy. I am not proud of the complacency in this country and the growing entitlement attitude. Is it possible that while so many who have given all to protect this country’s freedom those of us who enjoy this freedom are allowing a small minority to destroy everything we have fought for since the birth of the USA? The answer is it is happening right now.

What can be done? It starts with supporting leadership that stands for the principles of freedom and liberty. Freedom and Liberty is not bureaucracy. Freedom and Liberty is not mandating a value system on me. If you think your ideas are good ones…convince me. Don’t pass a law.

Let’s not let those who serve and who have served to have given all in vain.

Happy Nancy Pelosi Is Not Worried … A Seen On ABC

Nancy Pelosi  is not worried about the majority of the  House Representatives.  She is very confident of her agenda. Personally, I am happy she is confident because this means she is not paying attention growing number of Americans that are tired of increasing loss of freedom, liberty and prosperity.

Failing to pay attention is likely to result in her and others in federal and state governments waking up to find themselves out. Waking up to find new leadership that advocates the return to the founding principles of this country. Personally I feel that would be a great new day for our country.
