REACH THE PROMISED LAND OF EQUALITY
WHY ARE WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ALWAYS OPPRESSED? KEEPING US FROM OUR PROMISED LAND? LAST TIME WE SAW IT WAS 1776 FOR 10 SHORT YEARS.
We can’t get to the promised land of the real and complete American dream only by imagining it. While it started that way for our original founders of 1776, they invented it by grabbing the AMERICAN DREAM door handle, yanking it and stepping through. Now in 2020, 300 million as 1, it will be our turn to restore the American dream for everyone. GRAB THE HANDLE at RTDNOW.COM and step through!
With the REDEEM THE DREAM NOW Movement, (RTDNOW), I am reopening the door to the real original, and complete, American dream for every single citizen at once: social, political and economic equality. And bringing back the original principles (local self rule and economic freedom) and true American Dream belief system we lost: that is the only thing that powers the real and complete American dream.
But instead of just 56 people grabbing the handle like in 1776, to open the door to the full American dream, today in 2020 we will all do it by signing a document. A new petition, a 2nd declaration of independence from runaway government, called RTDNOW, so we, like our original founders, can step forth and really have, and live, the real American Dream. We are all so tired and hurting from living 1/3-1/2 of the American dream.
At some point, like today, 300 Million As 1, we all have to grow up and leave Fantasyland and take ourselves to OUR PROMISED LAND. The fantasyland we all live in is a childlike misunderstanding that politicians actually intend, or have a way, to keep their promises, without direct citizen (all of us) supervising some type of real ‘Citizen Based’ plan (Like RTDNOW) so they don’t squander all our money in endless runaway government like they’ve done for the last 40 years!
After four long sad decades of decline to the point the American dream for 300 million ordinary hard working average citizens is dead. I hope you are finally ready to get busy with me online daily to restore everyone’s American dream at once, and reach our promised land of equality: social, political and economic. That was the original pure American Dream outlined in our 1st Declaration of Independence.
But we won’t reach it UNTIL you, 300 million you’s, decide to participate with me. 5 effortless minutes a day at RTDNOW.COM to hear a new song and tell everyone to RTDNOW.COM. In 2018 forward, I’m asking every single American, 300 Million citizens as 1, to participate in charting the future of the ‘complete’ American dream by adding their name to that goal and the RTDNOW ‘Overnight’ PLAN at RTDNOW.COM And together, almost effortlessly, we will all reach our promised land.
MY FIRST LEFT TURN
That’s what my producer called it when a song, like the famous Beatles song Day in the Life does, change into another song almost. This was made in my first Kung Fu Band Session. As the song was coming to life, on listen back I said, can we add about 2:00 and change the rhythm? There was some hesitation, of the unknown, but as I gave more detail, described my favorite Doors songs where the band just grooved, they got what I wanted and as you’re hearing it became very cool.
OOHS AND AHS
Depending on the artist, or the producer, you get more or less oohs and ahs by the background singers on songs. Johnny Cash almost had none. Elton John for example has his own all-in over the top ohhs and ahhs style, which half the world enjoys, including me. While my producer was not a big ooh and ah guy he dialed it in on this song because the long pre-chorus needed to be lifted and elevated into the chorus. The intro was something special I asked Michele and Christina to ad-lib. I just love that stuff.
IN THE STUDIO WITH ADRIAN
Making of the Song "Reach the Promised Land of Equality"
MORE INSTRUMENTS PLEASE
This song sounded great from the first in studio tracking. But to me it lacked the musical nuances to make me feel it, and stay with it, to continually elevate it. So I added…Glockenspeil! Kind of sounds like a Xylaphone but isn’t. Then as we got to the rhythm change at the end 2:00 minutes of the song, I still needed more….Flugel Horn. Bring in Paul Mazzio! I just love that man’s interpretation, which he did effortlessly. Thanks Paul!
The Real Story of the American Dream In Context of Adrian's Song
“Reach the Promised Land of Equality"
*AMERICANS ARE THE HOPE OF THE WORLD
*THE REAL FATHER OF OUR COUNTRY
*OUR TRUE IDENTITY AS A PEOPLE
Thomas Jefferson, 1776
Defined our Promised Land
In the Declaration of Independence
George Washington, 1789
Diverted our Promised Land
In The Constitution
Redefining our Promised Land
In the RTDNOW PLAN
So we all reach it Overnight!
About new 1790 Americans, was said:
"This people, is the hope of the human race" wrote Tugot.
In an 'antique shop' I bought an old two volume 'History of the United States', published in 1928. It gives all the details of 1790-1920 and it shows how history evolves in small steps like the emergence of RTDNOW in 2018. Evolve is what I want is to all do: together. It shows how characters (like me) come upon the national stage at key times and alter the course of history. Their new philosophy acts like damning a stream, (of thought) and make it flow in another direction: altering its course. In my estimation we, the American citizens, have been through 240 years of this kind of 'damning' and not flowing in our intended, true direction. Early 1777 to 1790, ALL Americans HOWLED loudly at ANY sign of tyranny or oppression: at least to white folk. THEY ALL USED THEIR VOICES LOUDLY: It was our first true identity as a people. This book I reference starts at 1790 because that was the year of the first census and has reflections back to 1776. Slaves seemed to represent a low of 18% in brand new places like Kentucky and in the Big Apple of its day, Virginia, where our key founding fathers all came from, had 48% slaves in a population of 748,000 in 1790.
READ the two-page passage I highlight for you here. Before Washington/Hamilton and their Federalist clan emerged in 1787 to undo the pure liberty won in the revolutionary war, America was perceived, by the world, as a JEFFERSONIAN Democracy. This was the real America and the real birth of the American dream.
Thomas Jefferson was the Father of our country. But the Federalists erased him from our history so that they put his face on the unused $2.00 Bill of US currency. The meaning of that huge slight is so obvious: the Federalists were not using Jeffersonian Democracy. They dismantled the real American dream. They put Washington, the mid-wife of the birth of our nation, wrestling it out of mother England's womb as leader of the Continental army, as #1 in American history, and the face of our $1.00 bill. That mis-statement of real American dream history, hits every American in the face every day, for 250 years! And today the US dollar is on the verge of being rendered worthless under $25 TRILLION of national debt. We are beyond bankrupt following a misguided Federalist agenda, which now is called Corporatism.
Hell of a marketing campaign that $1.00 bill with the wrong Father of our country. But where did the Federalists 'damning', diversion from Jeffersonian Democracy get us? It got us into two epic cycles of wealth concentration at the top, 1900 and today. 1900 was the precursor to the Great Depression in 1929, our first total unrecoverable economic collapse. And in 2018 we are the same point as 1900: a mere 10-20 years from our second TOTAL unrecoverable economic collapse. Only World War pulled us out of it in 1939. And that's what we will get again is we don't alter the course of the river of human spirit we call America. Federalism, in the place of Jeffersonianism, got us where Jefferson said it would if we repeated an English 'money' Monarch system: which we did with difference faces every 4-6 years. But as we all know we've had the same faces in politics, like monarchs, for DECADES!
As a people in 2018 we are all bankrupt and all in chaos divided in mind (not spirit) unable to reconcile a false history of a strong Federalist (bankrupt/corrupt/runaway government) system we've been taught to worship, with our true identity as Americans: Jeffersonian Democracy. See Jeffersonian Renewal under Adrian 2020 at RTDNOW.COM
Jefferson's political party when he was elected President, as I note elsewhere, was "Democrat-Republican". So you see, our right mind combining laws and democracy through the people, not corporations, got divided and perverted long ago. We were supposed to be a people of laws (republicanism) that evolve through a DEMOCRATIC process. With money throughout our politics the democratic process was circumvented. And that same money funding office holders of all parties and their appointees changed our laws without we the real people's knowing, understanding, and consent, ending Democracy in America. Now that's not very nice at all. It's evil. That evil is our agony 300 million Americans feel daily watching runaway government continue to bankrupt us all and steal our shiny future. But all that's about to change.
Today's the day we all become super men and super women and right the river we call American spirit. And now you know why I have created a JEFFERSONIAN RENEWAL through my epic rock opera. And now you know why I named it REDEEM THE DREAM. We had the perfect American dream and we've let it get 'damned', diverted, by money in politics and redirected to the Global Corporate Elite Wealth Class starting in 1787 when they refinanced all States war debt, and took possession of our economics for the next 240 years by being given half of our Federal Bank, the Federal Reserve, started by Alexander Hamilton, a founder of the Federalist Party. He sold us all our to the global wealth class elite. And once again, over the last 50 years because we all, every citizen opted out, was apathetic, failed to use their voice LOUDLY like our true American heritage, and participate in OUR government and future, Federalism used that to take Federal debt, a control mechanism of the people, from $1 TRILLION to $25 TRILLION!!!
We all need to wake up RIGHT NOW to this epic theft of our national treasury which handcuffs 300 million American dreams daily. Which mutes 300 million voices daily in horror. It's time to fulfill our promise as Turgot wrote of Americans "This People is he hope of the world." So act with me, it's free. It's not our government UNLESS WE ALL PARTICIPATE!!!
Add your name with me at RTDNOW.COM to our second Declaration of Independence from modern runaway government. Together we will renew true Jeffersonian principles of liberty and freedom which power every REAL American dream. You don't have those, that's why you are only just living an imaginary American dream Advertisers from Madison Avenue (Madison, another Virginian, drafted the Federal Constitution undoing Jeffersonianism, another Virginian) and implement the RTDNOW Plan with me and 300 million of our landsmen and women to restore the Jeffersonian elements of EVERYONES American dream OVERNIGHT. So everyone in America can once again live their REAL American dream, right now.
If we dream to imagine the future we want, at some point that Vision becomes an outline of a promise of a place we want to end up. Part of the problem with philosophy of western civilization like communism or capitalism is that it promises a land of happiness but never really gets the people there and always ends up in massive corruption and failure for the masses. BECAUSE THERE NEVER HAS BEEN A SYSTEM LIKE RTDNOW PUT IN PLACE FOR CITIZENS TO ACTIVELY MONITOR AND CONTROL THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT. THAT IS HOW WE GOT ENDLESS RUNAWAY GOVERNMENT AND WHAT WE ARE ALL FIXING WITH THE RTDNOW MOVEMENT, WHAT THE FOUNDER LEFT FOR US, TO REACH AND STAY IN OUR PROMISED LAND OF EQUALITY.
I think this is where religion was trying to come in to regulate the worst part of the men’s souls to avoid this cycle of heaven and hell in government, and on earth, for how people live their lives: poverty or prosperity. Example: World War Two: 20 million dead, was hell on earth. While not quite heaven, 1950-1985 America was the land of plenty for many Americans, even though it was a lot of lactose filled milk for lactose intolerant people.
But because we have megalomaniacs on earth, many of which who wind up in politics with never a real plan but to elect themselves, they always usurp all power and wealth to starve all the people. These maniacs are missing two important DNA genes which make them incapable of good government. The gene of compassion and caring for their fellow citizens and humans. And understanding economics at the ordinary citizen level to be able to manage our economy.
As a civilization, we our prosperity or lack thereof, follows our economic health, or lack thereof. And because our economy is not planned for the citizen to prosper, (only the mega corporation, see the tax code for example) we suffer endless short-term boom (for corporations), then bust cycles for all the citizens. As a people, after the 30 year prolonged BUST cycle that has only been propped up by $16 TRILLION in new debt over the last 16 years, we all, 300 million ordinary American citizens, now feel the need to get on a new train of thought, to head for, and actually get to, our promised land.
LET’S REVIEW OUR BOLD STEPS, MOVEMENTS, TO REACH THE PROMISED LAND THAT WAS TAKEN, IN THE 2ND AMERICAN ‘WEALTH CLASS’ REVOLUTION OF 1787
The Worker’s Rights Movement organized workplace sanity all across America!
The Women’s Rights Movement gave 50% of our citizens rights OVERNIGHT!
The Civil Rights Movement, never finished, steered America toward race equality.
HOW DO WE ALL ACTUALLY REACH WHAT HAS NOW BECOME OUR MYTHOLOGICAL “PROMISED LAND”
To reach an abstract place, you have to invent new thinking, like the founders of 1776, like Thomas Jefferson did. To get there you need new abstract thinking that takes you beyond what is, and what was. And it has to be easily communicable in a simple memorable formula like E=MC2 in physics for example, or in new modern 2020 American civics, it’s called RTDNOW (Redeem The Dream Now).
Einstein was known to think in visual images, it’s how he made revolutionary leaps in thought. One of his famous visualizations was an elevator floating through outer space with a ball inside. If the elevator stopped what would happen to the ball? What forces and laws of nature we couldn’t see would be in play controlling the next events? And what would the next events be? What if we were that ball in the elevator? We all feel that way these days. That’s why nobody really knows what will happen next.
Ok, in terms of all our lives, American civilization as we know it 2018, outer space is the spectrum of all of us shinning stars. Countries and their government are the elevator, a population (of people) is held together by it, or trapped by it, and moved in a direction by its policies and format, its laws, it’s how the country is built and operates. And the elevator (the number of buttons to take you exactly where you want to really go), like laws of physics, control your ability to live and how much and how fast to prosper. And you have to understand the laws, and make them, to determine your direction and amount of American dream you get, or don’t get. And when somebody, or some minority wealth class group, pulls the fast stop button, it hurts every American. That’s called recessions and depressions in economic terms.
Now let’s examine Einstein’s example when the elevator stops in context to the American citizen. In my example the ball is the US economy, we all revolve around in our country, and the stopping of the elevator is when a government stops serving its people: the only true role of government. Well, what happens next to all that titanic energy in motion? In physics the ball crashes into the end of the elevator and they become locked. In this example that means the people and government become paralyzed (America for the last 40 years) and need a Rebellion, or a peaceful movement (like RTDNOW) to become free and function again, versus sinking.
As the economy crashed into bad government policies all the people are now forced to find a new way to survive and try to flourish. The world’s been full of such failed state events since the American Revolution because civilization in the 21st century needs a new and balanced philosophy to run on: All the old ones have failed. Today, the world, AND AMERICA, doesn’t run by ANY civilizational philosophy! And that vacuum has been filed by corruption and greed. And that is why America is $42 TRILLION IN DEBT (when counting States and Consumer debt) with no way out.
The historical ancient master-slave relationship may have gone out of style in 1776 with our ground breaking and earth changing 1st Declaration of Independence. And the two major philosophies of the 20th century, (Communism and Capitalism) which were interpretations from Plato’s book of 3,000 years ago called the Republic, have both failed their people. Today we all live in the remnants of one philosophy that guided our elevator called capitalism. Today American and the world are adrift without a philosophy (like RTDNOW) to guide itself and manage its economy and that is why the world is broke and headed for a titanic global economic meltdown in 10-20 years if we don’t all change the course of our elevator.
SO WHY DID OUR ‘AMERICAN’ CIVILIZATIONAL POLICY FAIL US ALL?
Because in 1787 a new super minority group of the wealth class of the day, called the Gentleman Class, who all became Federalists, the first ‘Political Party’ in America, removed the most important part: real democracy. They gave it crib death by centralizing power taking it away from the states and people. How? America was founded as a Democratic-Republic. Meaning the people set the laws.
Federalism took Jefferson’s Democracy out of the picture 10 short years after its revolutionary birth, just leaving us all with only half of the real American Dream. And ever since all the real hard working ordinary people in America, 300 Million today, have had a tug of war with a global elite wealth class (they refinanced all US debt in 1787 to get the States to forever forward give up all power and control) about how much of the American dream we the real people get versus the wealth class (Corporate America and Billionaires) via their centralized administrators.
With money flooding our politics since almost the start, in 1787, politicians have become the wealth classes administrators. Kind of like Bankers of the American dream, doling it out to who they think fit, who really pays them. In short and simple terms what Federalism did was take the country from the people making them all eternal renters (taking away freedom) and the federal government became the landlord who evicts you if you don’t pay taxes. This is a false and unjust understanding of how American civilization should work, and the Federalism doctrine which may have merits but was perverted by money in politics that changed it, is now a false American Dream, which is why it finally collapsed and died on 300 Million trusting citizens.
The original ‘real’ American dream, our promised land, was keenly and succinctly imagined primarily by Thomas Jefferson. It is that dream and his Jeffersonian principles that is our promised land we will all be reaching again soon as we all add our names 300 Million As 1 at RTDNOW.COM. Go to Adrian 2020 at RTDNOW.COM and read all about Federalism, when unguided by the citizenry, creates social, political and economic oppression RTDNOW PLAN Reforms correct. And also read and relearn what powers the real American dream: Jeffersonian principles.
“WE ALL WANT THE DETAILS SO WE CAN BELIEVE IN AND GET BEHIND RTDNOW”
In the Rock Opera to Save America, Album 2, ITS OUR TURN to Save America, in the song bonus materials AND FREE PODCASTS, I dissect the meaning of the most famous phrase in the world telling us what the promised land is: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In two words Americans call it Equality and Freedom. And we have little of either today. Our economic ‘ball’ has hit the side of the elevator and too many millions of citizens are being crushed economically and socially. We don’t have equality under the law or in politics or education or how we pay taxes: if we should pay them at all.
We don’t have economic freedom as the wealth class has spent 100 years (detailed in Album 2 song bonus materials THE SELLOUT) dismantling it. They replaced our laws and politics of the people with those of the mega corporation and global elite wealth class (who gained wealth and then transferred it all overseas over the last 40 years as our political leaders kept quiet) while we were all trusting our ‘politicians’ and not participating actively.
Today we don’t have educational equality or freedom: the key component of your ability to PURSUE and achieve your American dream. We don’t have don’t have anything left of the real American except the UN-fulfilled Promise: The Promised Land I am singing and talking about. That’s why I created an OVERNIGHT RTDNOW Movement to get us all there, to actually reach our promised land, by simply all adding our names 300 Million As 1 at RTDNOW.COM.
WE’RE SMART PEOPLE. SO WHY WE HAVEN’T REACHED THE PROMISED LAND OF EQUALITY AND PERSONAL PROSPERITY FOR ALL YET? WE DIDN’T ALL PARTICIPATE.
Let's discuss why we haven't reached The promised land of equality and economic freedom. We stopped participating. Let me explain.
If my landscaper did a terrible job getting rid of the weeds, if I had one, I'd quickly fire him. If my maid did a bad job, if I had one, letting my life get dirty, I'd fire her. If my chauffeur showed up late, if I had one, and delayed my life, I'd get a new driver. Most Americans do things themselves to save money, get exactly what they want, so they get results without wasting tons of time and money, and for the satisfaction of owning the journey of making their lives all they should be. It’s called pride when we do things ourselves. We have no pride in government today because we don’t do it ourselves. RTDNOW MAKES IT ALMOST EFFORTLESS AND ALMOST FREE TO ACTIVELY MONITOR OUR GOVENRMENT so we all reach and stay in our promised land of equality, freedom and prosperity.
So why in the world do we just keep handing the keys to our politicians and say "just do it” and walk away and not stay actively involved inspecting their work as they go? And do that, look away, stop paying attention repeatedly like we’re all strolling through an amusement park like Disneyland just going on the next ride, until like high school kids not supervised, they've max out the credit card, become addicted to debt, and total the car! We all need to stay actively involved with our politics. We don’t ever manage them or hold them accountable to have a plan and actually implement it. And until now there hasn’t been any easy way to do all that. So I’m creating one and want every single Americans help to do it: RTDNOW.
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DONE RIGHT… YOU HAVE TO DO IT YOURSELF. IN GOVERNMENT, THAT’S NOW CALLED RTDNOW: REDEEM THE DREAM NOW
Welcome to Redeem The Dream Now, a paint by numbers DYI (do it yourself) Equality Movement of all the people to restore Everyone's American dream overnight.

ABOUT ADRIAN'S SONG
Reach the Promised Land of Equality
WHAT IS THE PROMISED LAND?
It’s a concept embedded in the psyche of western civilization.
If you follow the Bible, it meant the land flowing with milk and honey. It was in the book of Exodus. It seems you always have to leave somewhere you are now, to get there. And if you mock God, you don’t get to get in. Ouch! If you listen to various songs in American music it pops up several places most famously by Elvis Presley and Bruce Springsteen. As with my song on album 1 titled, (Until We) Reach The Promised Land they all have a longing of the people to get to the land they were promised; by God, or by their ‘elected’ representatives who are supposed to follow their national charter. If you combine those concepts with the 1st American Declaration of Independence, our national charter, what started the American dream and America rolling, you have where this song in the opera came from.
What is our Promised Land? (HINT: The 1776 original American dream before it was highjacked)
Where is our Promised Land now? (HINT: Hidden under TRILLIONS of dollars in politics separating the people from their government)
How does every single American get to our Promised Land? (HINT: add your name at RTDNOW.COM and tell everyone)
Can we really get there OVERNIGHT!? (HINT: the RTDNOW PLAN restores everyone’s American dream as it’s passed by 100 to 300 million citizens: get busy!)
What does it cost? (Free. Also see THE GREAT DEAL at RTDNOW.COM)

Words and Music by ADRIAN
Work your fingers to the bone, mortgage everything you own
Offer up your first born, just pursuing the American dream
But The American dream, no longer what it seems
System we trusted is busted, got packed and sold on wall St.
We're all on a timeless journey with no end
Its in our blood to always seek the promised land
Our nature to succeed will never be freed
" Until we reach, the promised land"
Your compass can be confused, by the emotions that get used
By advertisers charlatans of greed, they don't care about you or me
Read the good book and look, at my neighbors and city for
Jacob’s Ladder hanging down, right out of the smoking cloud
Once it’s in your minds eye, you don't stop until you’re satisfied
You can change directions, you can manage expectations
You can lose your mind, but you never lose the will to try
That’s why all the saints and all the prophets, all the pillars of light and reason
Laid the seed in this fertile ground, so our promised land would come around
That’s why we work our fingers to the bone, mortgage everything we own
Offer up our first born, just pursing the American dream
We won’t be free, we won’t be free, until we reach the promised land:
THE BILL OF RIGHTS, EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION
WOMEN’S RIGHTS, WORKER’S RIGHTS
THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, LIFE PARTNERS
ALL BOLD STEPS ON THE ROAD TO THE PROMISED LAND
BUT WE’RE NOT THERE YET, GETTING MONEY OUT OF POLITICS
TO RESTORE A TRUE GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE
IS THE NEXT BIG STEP WE ALL HAVE TO TAKE TOGETHER
TO GET THE LAND WE WERE PROMISED
WHERE WE’RE ALL TREATED EQUALLY
AND THE PEOPLE ONCE AGAIN RUN THE GOVERNMENT
NOT WHAT WE HAVE NOW, A GOVERNMENT OVERUN
WITH POISINOUS MONEY, RUNNING THE PEOPLE AND
ENSLAVING OUR PATH FORWARD
MY FRIENDS THIS IS OUR TIME, TAKE MY HAND
LET’S STEP THROUGH THE DOOR TOGETHER
AND ENTER THE PROMISED LAND; ITS WAITING FOR US
“I hope you’re enjoying the opera. We won’t be free until
we have 100% participation, to have a TRUE government
of, by and for, we, the real people. So I’m asking everyone
in America, add your name at RTDNOW.COM and use the
Internet to tell everyone so we can quickly restore everyone’s
American dream, and save America. This is Adrian. Thank you!”
