The change is responsibility of all of us – Paul Chehade

Our nation cannot continue to be manipulated by lobbyists that buy and control the power, it should be controlled by the representatives of the constituents, the representatives who works for and by the people. Paul Chehade.

Dear Friends:

I greet you with utmost respect. Despite the multiple attacks and threats that we have received for communicate with you in Spanish, we will not be intimidated and will continue communicating as always in both, English and Spanish.

My team and I will continue fighting to represent the people with dignity, ethic and fundamental respect, keeping in mind the necessities and ambitions of the citizens of our nation without discrimination of any kind.

Time is running out, we need your help today!.

I want to make clear that this nation, the United State of America was founded by the people and for the people; this includes both the rich and the poor.

The media only focuses on Democrats and Republicans without considering the Independent, which as a group, represent the 99% of the people, the people who have been manipulated but not represented.

Without regret as to what I will have to leave behind in my personal life, I decided to dedicate my time to be the voice of the people of the United State of America and forge a reorganization that will reestablish the dignity of our nation and international respect, with the final goal of establishing peace treaties and intellectual maturity.

Our nation cannot continue to be manipulated by lobbyists that buy and control the power, it should be controlled by the representatives of the constituents, the representatives who works for and by the people.

The young men and women of our arm forces are our pride and we have to give them the respect they deserve. Part of that respect is that our politicians don’t send them to die in senseless wars, only to augment the wealth of weapon manufacturers and oil companies. President Dwight D. Eisenhower said this many years ago and now it is more relevant than ever.

We currently have Mr. Barack Hussein Obama as our President, who limits himself to promises and justifies his lack of action by stating that others don’t allow him to act. With the respect that he deserves, he is an public employee and if he cannot serve the people for any reason, he should go home and give the opportunity to another person who has the capacity to work for the people of the United State of America and has the sufficient endurance to fight for the people, at any cost, no matter the consequences. Obama only thinks of his own interests within his party and multinationals.

On the other hand we have a Republican Party which has only the Tea Party’s interests in mind, and let’s face it, the interests of those who got rich during the Bush administration, and they want to keep doing this. They are wasting more resources in the primaries than in solving the nation’s problems. It’s embarrassing.

Many who don’t know the truth consider themselves Republicans or Democrats, this is a grave mistake. It’s shameful what these two parties have done with our nation and the rest of the world.

I have faith that the nation’s youth have woken up and together in this election, we will be able to place this nation on a new and better path, on the independent path, a path based on ethical and moral principles, along with allowing government the freedom to govern free of internal conflicts.

I am a person who respects you and I don’t want to promise or meddle with your desires, necessities, and much less with your sufferings.

The American dream has turned into a nightmare. Who can sleep calmly thinking about debts, bills, or all that they have lost after a lifetime of struggles? Who can rest knowing that they have to go to the doctor without medical insurance or money?

How do you tell a little boy that they will have to go without a birthday party or a toy? Or even worse, that they have to eat less to be able to feed everyone?

The American dream is now a constant struggle to stay afloat, and the weakest are the first to go under.

We are submerged in a deep socio-economic crisis. Don’t be fooled, the change won’t come on its own, it all of our responsibility to bring it.

We can’t be cowardly, we can’t sit on our hands and wait for a hero that will never come. Let’s be brave and start today, we are not invisible, they just don’t want to see us. We don’t want to know what artist gets sexier with age or what is the next best diet…

We want to know where we are going, what to hold on to, what is the truth about the state of this country, and what are our options. We have the right to know the truth.

All change comes at a cost and have consequences, but I can assure you that whatever the consequences are, they will be far less damaging than if we continue on the path that we are on now.

I promise to fight in this election and in any election that is necessary to take this country out of the situation that these two political groups, who are unscrupulous and without morals or valor, have put us in.

I’m only one person but I can count on a large group of people, which is every one of you and your friends, and all together we will create a better future for our nation.

Today more than ever, I need your help. You know that in these times, publicity is essential to spread our message and to be able to reach the widespread population, so that the public can hear new ideas and a legitimate alternative.

This means that our campaign needs to be ready to inform the voters about the reality of our nation and the way we can solve the problems that it faces.

Because of what has been established, I ask for your help to make the first quarter of 2012 the most successful of all the financial reports of this campaign.

Make your donation in a secure way on our web page.

God bless America!


Paul Chehade:.
Candidate for President of the United States of America 2012.

P.S.: Spread the word, forward this email to your friends and colleagues, it is a great way to help to this campaign.


Free Legal Aid Services – Helpful for People with Low Income

The world comprise of both rich and poor people. While some earns too much for a comfortable living, there are those who have limited earnings. For those who have a limited financial income status may opt for free legal aid services in situation of bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy may occur due to a number of reasons. It may be due to sudden job loss, deterioration in business performance status, or even due to heavy repayment of some past loans.

Conveyancing can well be defined as a process that allows for preparation of legal documents for property transferring purpose from seller to purchaser. It may well require a big monetary involvement. And those with poor financial condition may not be able to afford it.

While looking for legal aid, it is necessary to look at the eligibility criteria for qualifying. The procedure may be lengthy and elaborative but it needs to be completed properly. Or else, the entire effort may go in vain. Legal clinics are available in wider number. So, finding one for your purpose may not be difficult at all.

While you make an application for aid, the office will at first take into consideration the entire personal financial condition of yours. Then they will take the appropriate decision whether you will be able to pay for all the necessary legal proceedings or not. The entire judgment will be taken after focusing strongly on the family responsibility issues of the client (in this case, it is you) as well the present financial status. Free services may be availed but paying a part of the entire expense is a must. It may be a low amount but payment is necessary even with those who have limited income and poor financial condition.

The miracles being performed at UCLA and Operation Mend deserve our full support as our most wounded troops receive the best care our nation can provide them there.”

“Take a car, like Ryan is working on, and you just make it better,” said Marine Corporal Aaron P. Mankin. “And that’s what we’re doing at Operation Mend. We’ve taken what we have and we’ve taken those who have the talent and the ability and the willingness to give of themselves. It melds very well together.”

“The car and the money we were able to raise for Operation Mend thanks to Ryan and everyone at West Coast Customs really exceeded all of our expectations,” said Army Specialist Joey Paulk. “Just like Operation Mend, Ryan and his team found an amazing way to show their support for all branches of our military. I can’t thank them enough, this was truly amazing.”

“It’s WCC’s way of saying thanks to the brave soldiers who put themselves in harm’s way to preserve the American way of life,” said Ryan Friedlinghaus, owner of West Coast Customs and TV personality.
