The Iraq war began in 2003 and has caused the death of over four thousand American soldiers and devastated civilians. The war was controversial from the beginning; many people protested and spoke out against it. When people questioned the war, the state often insisted that we were over there fighting for our freedoms. Many thought this was a made-up scapegoat, but it turns out our freedom really was in Iraq the whole time. Continue reading “BREAKING: American Freedom Found in Iraq”

Many misguided young boys think they fight for freedom
But when barked commands to kill people, they heed them
When in the fields, men back home for little money toil
Believing that their liberties are defended, not America’s interests in oil
If bombing those an ocean away brings peace
That is an oxymoron, to say the least
But back home, those liberties for which soldiers believe they fight
Are being stripped by people who don’t care for rights
Only for their fragile sense of self
They wish to ban everything that they can’t help
They want their free-of-judgement safe spaces
By banning unpopular opinions from those same places
When real progressives would die for your right to speech
For whatever one wished to say or preach
Meanwhile, these supposed freedom fighters demand
That those who they disagree with get off their land
But the very law of the land, the Constitution,
Is being up-heaved in a revolution
To stop any speech or proselytization
Which they deem a danger to this nation
But what is a danger? A mere opinion or thought?
Censorship is an insult to those that fought
Not in Vietnam or Iraq, but to those who said that they see
A possibility for a new country with free speech and liberty.

Larry Sharpe (L) is a Bronx native, a Marine Corps veteran, an entrepreneur, and a management consultant. He moreover has 15 years of experience mentoring international executives, entrepreneurs & salespeople. He is also a teacher and has served as a guest instructor for business management and leadership at institutions such as Yale University, Columbia University, Baruch College and John Jay College.
In a recent poll, when pitted against the incumbent, Larry Sharpe was the closest competitor. The Republican candidate fell short where Larry came close, gaining 49% of the non-Cuomo votes. He thus truly believes this is a three-way race where a third party candidate has the opportunity to make a run for the office.
Like Democrats, Larry believes voter apathy is the reason why citizens enable incumbents like the current Governor of New York. He is asking for New Yorkers to get out and vote: not for a corrupt Democrat, nor the try-hard Republican, but for a fresh new party moving up in the ranks of American Politics.
Libertarian thinkers have a higher IQ on average than any other set of beliefs. Libertarian principles are, of course, rooted in the revolutionary American ideals that created this great country. American voters have come to the realization that money in politics is the root of corruption. And, Larry Sharpe promises to decrease the amount of money available to corrupt individuals to choke their supply of power.
A View for the Future
Sharpe went on the Joe Rogan podcast where expressed his plan for New York state and how he intends to bring sanity back to the governorship. As a former teacher, he has a plan to reform the education system in New York. He believes empowering local teachers and Parent Teacher Associations is the key to saving New York’s failing education system.
Larry wants to save New York. If New Yorkers vote Democrat or Republican, the incumbent will win the election and nothing will change. Without a doubt, the state deserves a leader who is not corrupt and will not lead the state down the same unchanged path. New Yorkers deserve Larry Sharpe.
