There was a SNAKE in my house and it got me thinking about the Government…

So I came home from a drive and there was a snake in my house… Somehow, that got me thinking about what I hate about the Government, and it turned into this:

Lol. Can’t wait for the comments on this one.

- David Wood

P.S. What does this have to do with Network Marketing? Watch the video and see…

I just watched your snake video and I'm more convinced that ever I'm in the right place with the right guys! I went to CR 12 years ago and wanted to move there and didn't have the cash to do so...cuz I was sick of the good ol' USA gov't BS...and I'm still here! Need to make it here with you and get outta Dodge! See you in CR SOON!!! Thanks for everything man...loved your rant!

David, You speak the truth! Must be nice being able to be so far away in Costa Rica from all the B.S. going on in this country so you can focus on what really matters and produce like you're doing. I wonder if there's a correlation there...

Amen brother!!! You need to get out of my head David! I have been saying that for a while and it is so true and people are too lazy to pay attention to what is going on. Talk too you soon David! Jay

i agree wholeheartedly congrats for speaking your truth i too have a plan to get out of this country just haven't decided where it will be the time is right to get out of the crouds, the controls, the mainstream and reconnect with nature and real people who are doing the same the time is to all find our Tribe and Co-Create together and that is what this business is allowing us to do

Awesome post Dave. They are coming to gem me right now just for watching it... I couldn't agree any more. Bow you make me want to live in Costa Rico. HaHa. And I too see your view as anything but simplistic. Marc up there evidently does not truly understand a true free market. He may not see that is why 68% of the American public would love to throw all the bums in government out and start over. Or maybe he didn't see the election coming where they threw out all those social working democrats. Any way, I am with you all the way. Here's to freedom my brother!

Hey David, this is an AWSOME POST!!!!!!!!!! A lot of people dont't know or understand how corrupt the government is now! If people even looked at the back of their $1 bill and researched the symbols on there and also looked into the real FACTS on the Freemasons, The Order Of The Illuminati, Skulls N Bones, (basically in other words the SECRET GOVERNMENT), people would be scared SH**LESS!! Also check this video out on the Illuminati and the New World Order ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XA1g3wjHEmw&feature=related

We need a revolution. I am also in the networking marketing industry, a relationship business..LOL I didn't get it in the 1st place but I stuck in and learned more then I excepted. Its great learning the truth which you can't get from the public system. I am now able to talk to strangers cause of the mentorship. I am stilled listening and learning and making mistakes. We need to fight evil(NWO), we have tobe strong and fight til the end as MLM. Dave, what you said, its the truth, in my opinion only a gutless person would not hear you and afraid to act.

Marc

Huh, David. I sort of understand your rant, but your view is so simplistic and naive that it is mindboggling. First of all, who builds the roads and the infrastructure we all use? Who takes care of the weakest and the most poor ones? Who will protect you if there's violence? Who takes care of those potheads after their brains are mush, when they are 70? Private sector? I don't think so. With freedom comes responsibility. Most probably those potheads and other lunatics would have been shot or hanged in those olden, golden days of founding fathers so that would have solved that problem quite easily. And hey, would you agree that all those founding fathers were right about slavery as well? I absolutely agree that we should not be depending on government, but it is so funny when there are people saying that they hate the government? It is so stupid. You have the freedom to vote and last time I checked there's a freedom of speech in most western countries, unlike most other parts of the world. We certainly have to be independent and make our own fortune, but there has to be someone taking care of those who are not as fortunate as most of us. We are in this together like it or not. And network marketing as a way to free people of the world. Heheh. You are funny David. Yep, let's just sell stuff to each other and that way billions of people can achieve financial freedom and happiness. David, how many millionaires there are in your downline? Or people who are making over $50K/year? What is the percentage? Or how many are spending more than they are making? You know the statistics of network marketing. Those are not pretty. Again, I don't like socialism and I'm all for free markets, but there's too much of this kind of rubbish all over. What is the solution? I have no idea, but I certainly know it's not network marketing. There has to be a middle ground that gives people enough freedom to do what they like to some extent, but there also has to be a system that takes care of the infrastructure and the weak ones. I guess we can't all move to Panama or Costa Rica? You know what would happen then? Anyway, your videos are always funny to watch and you know how to get traffic so great work in that respect.

Hi David. Great rant! Unfortunately, the "majority" of Americans are "asleep at the wheel" and are "too busy being busy." The US government is going down the tubes because they are serving (m)asses of uneducated, non-thinkers who'd rather take time to numb their pain by watching the boob tube all night voting for their favorite American Idol or Dancing Star.

I love the part where you talked about "the blank stare"! I thought I was the only one that got the blank stare from family members when trying to explain what is going on. Keep it up man, we need more and more people to speak up without fear.

David I am glad to be living in the UK...I was actually considering moving to the US in a few years but this really has opened my eyes. However I feel that the exact same thing is happening here too, and consistent media scares through TV, Radio, Newspapers etc. make people believe that we are DOOMED. I truly believe there is more opportunity than we think there is but the media (with help from the Government) does a great job covering it up with constant negativity. Bottom line, create a future for yourself if you want to actually have one in the next few years and DON'T rely on the Governments of the world. Get out while you still can. -Seb

Thanks David! I'm glad you put this on your blog and I love what you have to say! Keep it going! I believe in things that are similar to your beliefs about the government. I wish other people would turn off the TV and tune into what is happening. I loved watching the movie "Fall of the Republic." Turn off the TV, think for yourself and take action. Blessings to you!

Dave, I was just thinking, a certain snake shook up a quiet day in the garden of Eden a long time ago. i guess this was proof positive that there are no "accidents" Hey can I start of vote here to release the other hidden 20 minutes before the camera gets formated? I think everyone has a desire to see the "directors cut" thats my 2 cents -Craig

David, Great video, Shall we thank the snake for getting you all riled up? I know this video is several days old, but I felt compelled to comment on it before you came to your senses and took it down.I agree with your thoughts and feeling about the government and where it has led us. I just have a question for your next rant... Was 9/11 an inside job? Well that will keep your mind busy for a bit. Thank you David for all you do for us Numis members and the community owes you respect for the stand you take on difficult and potencially unpopular topics. A true leader speaks his/her mind and can sleep well for doing so. God bless, and my you and Ashley enjoy your new adventurous home. Craig

David, Watched your video the second time .. inspiring. "Democracy in America" - Alexis de Tocqueville - his concerns about the rise of a paternalistic state - an 'immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone to secure (the people's) gratifications and to watch over their fate." He observed that "for their happiness such a government willingly labors ... provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property and subdivides their inheritances." The Trade-off, as Tocqueville warned, is that the government becomes "the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness." A FREEMAN will NOT accept this State. With your duplication system we can all be FREEMEN. To our success Robert

David, Yes, everyone on these comments agree with you.Me included. The only problem is, we have let ourselves be overwhelmed by"couch potatoes" that will out vote us to protect their easy income. The rest of us have to work either manual jobs, professional jobs or net"WORK" marketers. The only way we might be able to win is to create enough "jobs" of what ever type to employe enough people to earn the "American Dream" and out vote the couch potatoes and the others currently controling the finaces of our country.

David Wood

Wow - it took 117 comments and more than 3,000 people seeing this post to find one person who doesn't agree with me.... However, since you're here Marc - let me give you a quick response to all the 'stuff' you threw out here. First, thanks for the compliment about my vids - ha ha, online marketing is quite fun for me. The first thing that I think is a bit off about the comment here is that my view is 'too simplistic'. Not the case at all - my views are simply constitutional, and the constitution isn't simple at all, and most Americans have never read it, and I'm starting to think that neither have any of our Senators, Congressman, or presidents (at least for a while). Suggesting that 'simplistic and naive' is an 'ignorant attack' if you actually want to debate. Second thing is you associate 'pot smokers' with 'other lunatics'. That's pretty dumb, too. If you actually think that, it's because you don't know how many of your smart friends secretly smoke pot and don't tell you about it. 'Freedom to vote' is a real novel idea. What were the choices last time? Mass media manipulating the minds of the masses to choose between 2 people? What if you don't want either of the two? Well, you're vote doesn't really mean anything at that point, does it? Suggesting that you have freedom of speech in North America is RIGHT NOW an ignorant statement - or freedom to bear arms. Try buying the same kinds of guns people in the military have and watch how easy it is. Try getting the same weapons and technology the cops have and see how free you are to protect your family, how free you are to speak your mind, and how free you are to do what you want. Try sharing a testimonial on a video for a product you sell without a page long disclaimer and check if it's actually legal. Free speech? Not anymore Marc. Are we free to own a business? Try starting a traditional business today without an army of lawyers, accountants, and employees to manage the flow of paperwork you have to deal with BECAUSE the government controls your business. Think you own your house? Don't pay your land taxes 2 years in a row and see if you actually own any land. Think you own your bank accounts? Don't pay the IRS and see what happens to them in 2-3 years. THINK you're free - TRY living in a van and see how free you really are to just sleep where you want - see what happens. Network Marketing is a subject all on it's own. When we're talking about FREEDOM, we're talking about the ability to fail and the ability to succeed. It's a stupid thing to do to come into an industry, blind, and quote a success statistic when you're not looking at the actual picture of what happens long term. Do 95% of the people in MLM make it? A better question is to ask how many people who sign an application even have the intention of making it in the first place. I also know that 95% of the people who stay active building for 10 years in MLM earn a six figure residual income. My team? My team is six months old - and I've got about 5 people that earn $50k per year, not bad, is it? How many people in ANY profession earn that much in six months? You see how stupid that question is? MLM isn't magic - we're not casting a voodoo spell out in the universe - it's hard work, and takes dedication. I think the core statement here for you is 'I have no idea' when you're talking about solutions - so when you have 'no idea' why rant? However, immediately after that following up with 'there has to be a middle ground'. Really? How's this for a middle ground, how's this - 50% of us work to support the other 50% - sounds good, doesn't it? That's right in the middle, and what's happening - watch what happens over the next 5 years Marc, and ask yourself - is the MASSES more rich or more poor? Is power more centralized or more local? Is currency more centralized or more local? Just watch and SEE what happens. Personally, I would rather live in Anarchy, barter with no official currency, and put a sign on my door that said 'protected by the Mafia' than have our current system. (that's not saying that's my personal preference - that's just BETTER than what we have now, by a long shot, in my opinion - and no - that is NOT a 'simplistic or naive' statement) Anyways, it was fun hearing your comment - quite frankly, I was expecting a lot more, and was surprised how many people agree with me here that the government is full of shit, too controlling, manipulating, and quite frankly - a nuisance to us all. -dave

There will come a time, Richard, when the 'couch potatoes' are forced to wake up and move from their slumber from sheer starvation if we keep heading in the same direction. Maybe a bag of potato chips will motivate them to action when they don't have enough money to eat. -dave

I am SO-O-O glad you did not take it down.  I have been hearing you talk about your government rant in other videos.  I have been searching for this exact post.  Now, I know I can stop trying to write around the truth about what the government has done and continues to do to me. 

 

At 10 minutes in, I was in tears.  By the end, I feel confident that God Himself led me to you -- someone who may be able to understand.  Not to mention, help establish a means to regain my right to work.

 

I won't be able to sleep until I post the self-defense that no doubt will be termed a 'rant' as well.  However, as with your words...  they will all be true.

 

Any reading this, please feel FREE to read my (empower network) blog, if you like 'believe it or not' stories.

 

The title will be THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS MY PERSONAL TERRORIST.  Subtitle:  I Have Been a Prisoner of War of U.S. "Policies and Procedures" for Over 16 Years!

 

My name is Marlakay

 

Thank you for all who can 'hear'.  Unfortunately, when I talk of my right to defend myself and my freedom to EARN a living and live as I choose -- I, sadly, seldom get 'blank stares', Dave.  Instead, those that have listened, tend to tell me I am on a self-pity trip.  That would be because they have not had their civil rights violated... yet.

 

If still I must remain a 'prisoner', at least, I thank you SO MUCH, Dave, for giving me an outlet to protest.  

Craig Catapano

I suspected you weren't, thats why I figured I'd ask a truelly controversial question to you directly... Besides, I shared this with my Facebook Friends, Being from New York originally, I found it very painful to watch 3 world renouned skyscrapers fall vertically to the ground in a very suspicously similar fashion to controlled demolition. My brother was working on Wall Street 5 blocks from ground zero that day and thankfully his building only suffered broken windows and no loss of life.3000 innocent poeple perished that day and many more in the deserts of far away lands for what? I truelly believe the events of 9/11 should be re-opened for independant investigation now that Mr Bush has been conveniantly out of the public eye for 2 plus years. The old expression, "The truth always comes out in the end" is still valid. Ok, that was my rant Dave, you can delete my responce after you read it. Take a swim in that pool Dave, watch out for the snakes... lol -Craig

Thanks to you, as well, Craig, for pointing out the need for "investigation".  Thanks to Dave & Dave, I have, at last, found a way for the 'truth' of my circumstances to 'come out'.
