As a child whenever anyone told me something couldn’t be done it always made me angry. I thought it a cowardly thing to say. Not to mention they were wrong. As a teenager and an adult I cannot remember ever being told I couldn’t accomplish my goal or dream.
Maybe it’s because I never asked permission to live my own life.
We have to stop asking permission of our government. They work for us. But to do this we have to be willing to serve; to put ourselves on the line. We have to stop saying “it will never change, they will ruin anyone good who steps up”.
Let them try.
We aren’t being asked to storm Normandy Beach or land on the Moon. We live in the freest country in the history of man. Technology allows for millions of like minds to come together in the blink of an eye from the comfort of our own homes. The cost of this is simply our time.
Just in the last month tens of thousands of shares, likes, and comments have arrived to columns I’ve posted. Ninety nine percent of these things were extremely positive (there’s been a few that had me laughing. I will share in a bit). America is full of wonderful people who have had enough. It is heartening, exciting, and humbling.
God bless you all.
This is what we need! Wonderful, freedom loving Americans clicking and sharing with each other. For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you are aware of the systemic changes needed to restore America. As many pontificate we continue to build our platform.
Shoulder to Shoulder.
One voice at a time.
The key to success isn’t education or intelligence. It isn’t personal appearance or who you may know.
The key to success is perseverance.
Every single day moving in the direction of our dream.
To restore a nation.
Two years ago I sat down with a mission to offer America a better way. To move outside my normal circle of giving and sharing and extend my hands as far as I could reach knowing there were millions of my countrymen and women who would extend their hands in return. I was right:) You’ve blessed me with your voices, your spirit, your passion.
A friend of mine (Tony Ruiz) said recently:
“We don’t need millions of dollars to elect a president…we need millions of voters”.
Amen brother. Amen.
That is why I started this mission and why we are all here now. To choose a different path. To embark on a new day for America through ethical leadership.
No campaign contributions, no salary, only serve one term, abolish all forms of income tax and close the border.
Free the great citizens of America to make our own choices.
To not be hobbled with crushing debt, overwhelming corruption, and never ending wars. To elect a leader who will make the hard choices none of these politicians will. To choose someone who will “grab the third rail of politics” and the fourth, fifth, and sixth until the “railing” is extinguished and the excuses stop.
To do this we have to continue communicating.

This way you will receive each column in your inbox. This makes it easier to simply forward to the millions of others we will need for our journey to be successful. For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you know I will never ask or accept a single dime. But I will request your time. I need your voices and your fingers to share here on Facebook and to forward through your email. One voice at a time. The Big Fella upstairs will take care of the rest.
As referenced earlier I will now share some “comments” that had me laughing. As you can imagine these are from the ever loyal Obama supporter.
“I disagree with everything you said and will not even bother with a response”.
Well my friend…you just did. God bless and thanks for reading:)
“Why is it I searched through hundreds of comments and couldn’t find anyone who disagreed!”
Maybe because everyone here loves America and appreciates the truth…or maybe because I blocked, banned and deleted the occasional Obama supporter. This isn’t a propaganda page. This is a TRUTH page. Know the difference.
“Obama’s been great. The debt’s been cut in half.”
I know I know. Deep breath everyone. I can feel all of you shaking your heads. It’s okay. You should actually laugh at a statement like that. I know I did:)
“Just like you have a constitutional right to say what you feel, I have the right to tell you how I feel as well!”
Well…let’s provide this person with some knowledge.
First of all it isn’t the constitution that allows you to “say” what you “feel”.
So many things wrong with that sentence:)
You were given free will at birth…by God. Easy liberals…I know those three letters scare you. Is that why some of you don’t like dogs?
Back on point, your tongue allows you to “say” things. For the record it’s your skin that allows you to “feel” but I digress.
There is no constitutional requirement for me or any private citizen to have to listen to you.
I struggle to listen to the droning of lies on and on while facts are ignored.
Save it for your CAIR meetings.
Or maybe call in to all of your liberal talk radio shows across America and ask why Nancy Pelosi called Hamas a humanitarian organization or why Barbara Boxer was so surprised to hear about the “mass rape and sexual violence” happening in Iraq and Syria.
What’s that? There aren’t any liberal talk radio shows?
Hmmm…I wonder why?
Last but not least for your entertainment:
“Mr. Kraus, you really do have a talent and gift with the written word (why thank you) but it’s your facts I have trouble with (of course you do) and it’s because of this I will not be reading anymore of your columns”.
Wait a minute…did the uninvited just say they wouldn’t be coming back? Wow, now that’s what I call…progressive.
Finally I will finish with this.
Those of you out there who continue to behave in oppressive manners…let me be very clear.
You’ve pushed us too far.
You’ve mistaken kindness for weakness for too long.
The mistake is yours.
You may believe you handle the Lions of America.
You are very wrong.
So pay attention politicians in both parties.
