Oprah? President?

loco_aubrey
No. I don't want any more celebrity presidents. I want a president with the political knowledge and background to help us get out of this mess.

If Oprah wants to run for president, then she should. But I believe she is smart enough to know that being president isn't the best way to help change the direction and consciousness of our nation. In her current position, Oprah can do more good than she would if she got entangled in the tendrils of shady dealings and collective bad karma that is known as the U.S. Federal Government.

No, Oprah should not run for president because she is one of the best communicators and one of the most generous people this country has and I think anybody that gets involved with politics is out for power. I think there is more involved in it than just the good will she tends to show. She does a better job with what she's doing.

Oprah should not run for president. The political arena would restrict her ability to influence the social network in our culture.  Her business involvement in a variety of media and her economic power allows her to lobby for the people. Politics would redirect her energy away from many of her great causes and stifle her candid rhetoric.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
