Remember the moment the American dream was perfect? Not evolved and perfected, but with the entire DNA for greatness: the promised land of citizen equality. It was perfect at birth: born as a ‘Democratic-Republic’. This meant the people ran the government, but THE CATCH was they had to use all their voices, to impose their will, to keep it that way. The idea was that the people should never accept what the American Revolution just rejected: corruption, a centralized money class system that reigned tyranny and oppression on all the people through a controlling invisible wealth class.
But ever since an American general from Plato’s warrior class, named George Washington, had a closed door meeting for four months to take the Democratic part of our founding out, and replace it with his name everywhere, replacing our Democracy, 50%, or one half of our American psyche with, his image as Demi-God, all we’ve had was a Republic with his face on it: without a real participatory Democracy. And the real American dream has died a slow 240 year death.
True Democracy was purposefully taken out of our psyche by the money class of 1786, called The Gentlemen Class then, in a document called The Constitution, before all the people of a newly born country actually had a chance to participate in their new government. And when the people don’t actively participate, government gets overrun EVEN MORE by money in politics and all citizens gradually lose their rights, freedoms, wealth, what we call the American dream, and eventually, as we are at risk at today, can even lose their whole country.
Today is just like that period of loss of half our identity as a people in 1787, and only the voices and policies of the corporate elite wealth class (who are really paying politicians) are heard and the real American dream of equality, local self-rule, and economic freedom, has become totally lost. And the only way to get that back, is to do what our original founder did, all participate together.
The majority of the American people need to scream as one like they did in 1776. Today that will of the people scream is called REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM. Do it daily as you hear the free redemption song and put it in every email, and soon, 300 million will scream as 1. That’s the Will of the People.

Making of the Song "Will of the People"
MAKE IT ANTHEMIC
Those were my instructions to Tim Ellis my producer of how to translate my garage band home demo of one guitar to a band session. Tim was an expert in understanding the emotion of a song and making the music sound that way.
WAKE THE WORLD
After the song was done and mixed I still felt ‘restless’ about it. It was solid and cool but it didn’t jerk me out of my id with the first note. It was missing the excitement and danger of raising your voice. Because Tim had passed away I had Dean Baskerville who had taken over Tim’s duties in post-production completion of the songs, bring in a nasty-good overly talented lead guitarist named Matt Salinas he worked with.

SPONTANEOUS AIR GUITAR
I’m still very much the babe in the woods in big time advanced music production: but I still know what I want. My advance instruction to the lead guitar session was to come up with an original lead guitar solo intro like the Beatles did famously in their song titled, Revolution, to wake up the world. Somehow with everyone’s busy schedule this all got forgotten and we all show up and they say, “What are we doing?” I am still learning that musicians work well spontaneously: it’s art. The good news is, so do I. As there was no direction I blasted into a verbal lead guitar solo and everybody said, “Yeah, that’s cool!” And 30 minutes later we had what we needed. I just love the lead guitar intro Matt Salinas did: I hope you do too!

MY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO
Like all the humble and overly talented artists Tim Ellis surrounded himself with, I had no idea who they were when I met them. So it was with my videographer, Ethan Sheils. He did an excellent job filming and editing this video given the low budget and lack of planning. I wanted to start some basic videos to go with all the studio band footage I’d compiled over 5 band sessions. The day before the video I got a hip-pointer at the gym and was in terrible pain, not moving much, as you can kind of see on my face in half the video. But I never cancel appointments I make so I soldiered through. I am so glad we filmed that day because within a year Tim Ellis passed away. Everyone who knew Tim loved and admired him and we’re all lucky to have this footage to see him rocking it up. We filmed two music videos this day: Will of the People and Protest and Vote.
The Will of the People is accomplished only when everyone gets involved.
Video was filmed by Hawthorne House on location at the Kung Fu Bakery Music Studio in Portland, Oregon.

“Two American Dream Turning Points”
1. 1952 Executive Order 10340
by President Harry Truman
Question of the day: Does that mean 10339 presidential orders came before? And what were they all? Gasp!
Is America a Democracy? A Republic? A Monarchy? Or has America become that crazy in-law that seems sane in front of the cameras only to spin out of control when we turn our gaze? Unfortunately America’s become the crazy in-law we can’t seem to get rid: not of our blood. Who kind of showed up through a bad marriage long ago of authoritarianism policies in 1787 and the real America dream of 1776. So what do we as Americans do every time the crazy in-law is about to take all our money and rights while smiling and patting us on the back?
We organize. Everyone. To make the obvious, the truth, what is right, the American Dream, right again, for all of us.
When we all do it like we are doing today, by all adding our names (to stop our crazy in-law, Runaway Government) at RTDNOW.COM in the Redeem The Dream Now Movement, we want something primary. Freedoms that were taken from us. We band together to restore everyone’s Complete American dream (of social, political, and economic freedom and equality) and while we’re all at it, Save America from total Econmic and social collapse from inept and totally corrupted economic management over 50 years. We all band together and do it effortlessly, for good reason: to save all our futures. All Our freedoms. All Our America.
The Real Story of the American Dream In Context
of Adrian's Song “Will of the People"
But back to executive orders which are a by product of that 1787 bad marriage to the elite wealth class called the constitution that gave our President new sole executive powers which always end up creating a runaway government that lives in its own world, playing by its own rules as it writes them, carelessly leaving all the citizens, you and me and our kids, behind in their dust and fallout, without hearing our voices or cries.
Oddly, some executive orders are well intentioned to the people, others are not. Back in 1952 Harry Truman was a busy man. He had fired his Attorney General McGrath, former DNC chairman, who appeared to be obstructing the investigation of the IRS. Wow! I think I may like Truman. Maybe. It was a farcical series of events, just like today (2018 where the President tells the world in a tweet “I’m a genius!”), of people in Office without real balls or clarity of purpose and a real citizen’s plan, and do nothing but waste all our time like the three stooges. No real reform of the IRS, needed way back in 1952, occurred, but it was a glimmer of trying to end Government and corporate collusion.
But as soon as that scandal fizzled out, Harry Truman was knee deep in his next: nationwide telephone and steel strikes being threatened. Indeed, President Truman was a very busy man, he was overseeing truce talks with our old buddies North Korea at the same time. And we are still doing that!!! 66 years later?!? Now that’s like a medieval 100 years war!!!
But more interesting than failed foreign policy over a half a century, Truman announced that night he was seizing the steel mills. WTF? In one of the boldest decisions of his Presidency, since dropping two nuclear bombs on a country (Japan) in surrender talks, he started to turn America into a communist state, and change the course of everyone’s American Dream for the next 75 years. All with a single executive order that came from that bad marriage of 1787.
Before my RTDNOW effort is over I will ( we all will) rewrite the constitution (amend it) to address, curb, such abuse of power by the crazy in-law taking short sighted and unwitting executive action without our consent. Even if like this one by Truman, be it well intentioned or not: it was a total disaster. An epic fail. One sided executive decisions like this is what threw America off its compromise axis and has paralyzed our whole government for 50 years! My whole lifetime! A generation! That’s why America is bankrupt. As we ran out of enemies we fought ourselves. And the big kids picked up their toys and left.
So yes, OMFG! Did Truman’s executive order 10340 seizing the steel mills ever scare the you know what out of the global wealth class elite who owned most of corporate America. It scarred them to death! And determined action. The President with a stroke of his pen, just took everything they owned. Wow, American history is exciting. Well, this dictatorial move by a president combined with the turmoil of the national riots over a decade of the later 1960’s and into the 1970’s, put fear into the global wealth class elite that this could happen again. But the next time to ALL their factories and they, the corporate elite wealth began to really organize to prevent it. They silently organized to take control of government before government took total control of them. In a world of cause and affect, executive order 10340 was a key American Dream turning point. I guess I don’t like Harry that much.
America had been somewhat on its fine balance for decades of serving the people and big business so that both could gain advancement and Co-exist in a still growing, prosperous America. But as the global wealth class elite issued their call to arms to all corporate titans to save ‘their corporate way of life’ in the famous Louis Powell memo of 1971, the will of the people, exhausted from a decade of protesting Runaway Government and seeking to extend the American Dream equally to all citizens with Civil Rights Legislation, went curiously silent. It wasn’t because the people were exhausted. They weren’t. They were frightened. They had their heart violently cut out. All the people’s leaders had just been assassinated. Coincidence? No, ruthless. President Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King all dead in a few short years. The Cuban middle Crisis occurred in 1957 creating a table of global fear. Why? Because after world war 2 an out of control American militarism put nukes on Russia’s doorstep in Turkey: a nuclear gun to Russia’s head. So Russia returned the favor putting a few nukes in Cuba a few years later. So avoidable. The moral of all my stories in this opera? All actions create reactions. The big reactions take 15-30 years to hit us all after they ramp up. Example: this opera/Podcasts/Website took about 7 years to research, plan, and make. And that’s why we have to include everyone in the next America we are building, even corporate America who abandoned us.
The unorganized and unruly ‘Will of the People’ protests in the 1960’s were all firmly eventually all quashed by a politicized FBI and ‘silent’ Government Deep State policing force as countless armed ‘raids’ took place. The 1960’s citizens rebellion, the most violent since the Whiskey Rebellion in New England, put down by Alexander Hamilton with a real military action, had also been put down.
And the reaction to government raids and all the internal unrest that looked like it may become the next civil war? Americans got more guns and more guns. Until today we are in the Wild West again at high noon everyday. At this pace Kevlar clothes may be the next growth industry.
And the government’s clamp down to end the prolonged ten year people’s uprising of the 1960’s-1970’s, orchestrated by the truly crazy in-law, disgraced President Nixon, put us all on a ‘be quiet to get along’ scared of our shadows path. A long 40 year path where Runaway Government did what it wanted for the next 60 years bringing us to the bankrupt America of today. Where America is in such titanic unpayable debt that if we let runaway government continue, America will collapse into a failed East German type police State within 10-20 years.
So it’s time again to invoke the Will of the People once more. But this time, do it by learning the lessons of the past. This time in a very organized, all inclusive, very peaceful, and very results oriented way to quickly restore everyone’s American Dream and put America back on its fine axis. Where all the citizens thrive, and corporate America can prosper also. In response to the 1952 American turning point I discuss here, corporate America quietly took 3/4 of their factories, your good paying jobs, our last American Dream engine, overseas, so the government could never nationalize them again with a stroke of the pen.
Even Presidents have to understand that there will be a big reaction to an executive action. Many times a decade or two later. That’s why our original founders did not have a strong chief executive in our first true government ‘of the people’ under the Articles of Confederation!
Sometimes the best action is the hardest: to do nothing and let a tense moment pass. I state repeatedly that I think most American presidents were bird brains with no economic training making them incapable of organizing, or pointing the American economy in the right direction, to make all our American dreams thrive. The above proves it. Truman followed FDR as President who had even less economic brains: I cover that in detail in later podcasts. We’ve all had NO economic equality for 300 Million citizens because nobody defined it, or organized the economy to naturally provide it to all: until my plan, read the RTDNOW PLAN. We’ve all been missing the same economic rights and tools to rapidly build our American dreams. All because our idiot Presidents have ZERO economic brains or thought through plans. All became tools of the global wealth class elite. That’s why they were all always ‘blindsided’ and reactionary to the citizens needs they were ignoring. OMG! And you thought you were winging your new job!
And when you look back at all our great movements, of the people, (and unfortunately the corporations) because the people’s needs were ignored for decades, all these pivotal moments in the real history of the American Dream, it was all reactions to a lot of seat of the pants ‘taking things away’ from the people (like 1787) or the corporations,
(executive order 10340) until the other side pushes back with everything they have over the next 40 years!
We all need to end this see-saw 49 year fight since EO 10430 of the rich against poor in America and achieve a balance where we all thrive. This battle for control of America and its money has raged since the revolution. It’s time to end our internal battle so we can all thrive and prosper again.
Please read my RTDNOW PLAN, Redeem The Dream Now Plan to Restore everyone’s Complete American Dream OVERNIGHT. In short, after it doubles the net income of 90% of We the real people instantly by changing policy, it re-balances citizens needs and the need for larger corporations to thrive. You’ll find it’s not that complicated. It just needs the Will of the People to invoike it. 300 Million As 1 tell everyone to add their names at RTDNOW.COM and we will end our current 66 year cycle of runaway government and redeem the real American Dream.
P.S. How Executive Order 10340 Ended
The Supreme Court overturned President Truman’s seizing of corporate America’s factories. We did not see another government overreach of titanic proportions that would cause the next American Dream turning point (this Opera) until 2010 when Government officials who read history did not ‘seize’ the failed banking industry, nicely they did not directly repeat Truman’s blunder, which would have sent 3/4 of our banks overseas over the next 40 years as the reaction. Instead of the government directly seizing the banks, they became ‘custodians’ until the banks recovered. That was engineered by Hank Paulson, not a bad move at all. Before he went into government he was also an architect of the ‘too big to fail’ ‘bubble to bubble to bailout’ economics that caused the bank collapse problem he tried to fix, and we all still suffer under, hanging like a giant anvil over all our heads, today.
That ‘custodianship’ gave the banks a $700 BILLION bailout, giveaway, we will all have to pay for as the too big to fail CEO’s of Banks and financial institutions all rode into the sunset with all our money: what I call false profits. My song False Prophets which derides them is on album 8. Goldman Sachs was a global investment banking firm Hank Paulson headed before becoming treasury secretary. As that firm was failing in 2009 from Mismanagement, the government and treasury department, he headed, rushed through its conversion for Goldman to become a bank, so we could all bail Goldman Sachs and Hanks pension out. Read his book for his interpretation of events: I did. We will not have an America of the People until we have treasury secretaries that come from Main St., not Wall St. Wall St. only serves themselves and takes the money from 300 Million citizens in their next bubble and burst cycle they’ve addicted us to because with wages that stagnated for 30 years as prices tripled: we’re all hungry. The next economic bubble will burst on us all about 2025-2028. Pay off all your debt and save your money. Go to cash and resources backed equities. You’ve been forewarned about five years ahead. If everyone listens they won’t get economically crushed yet again.
The moral of the story of the 2010 ‘Great Recession’ which is part of three recessions which taken together is our 2nd Great Depression propped up and hidden by $16 Trillion in new national debt, where the middle class keeps getting wiped out, and 50 Million new poor in America were created, as we all bailed out an inept uncaring elite global wealth class that rules is one more time, is we are all Economically living on borrowed (pardon the pun, like borrowed money, the national debt) time.
All this corruption and economic chaos created the final momentum for me to be fed up enough with runaway government and total economic ineptness and collusion (Another example: NAFTA) with the global wealth class elite to create the REDEEM THE DREAM NOW rock opera and movement for 300 Million ordinary hard working citizens to have a real voice and control their future.
Nobody’s coming to save us but us, 300 Million of Us. That should be obvious by now. But in case it’s not, I made 100 Daily songs and podcasts and Time Traver Moments with details like this, connecting all the dots, to bring the real story of the American dream, to light.
The only true thing in America that works? We all have to participate to have a country of our design, for the people, and in our control. But we have had just the opposite for over four straight decades: Runaway Government. And it’s almost totally killed 300 Million American dreams.
It’s time to change all that, and do it quickly, overnight. This is your once in a generation chance, don’t miss it. Tell everyone Daily as you hear the next redemption song: add your name, REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM.
2. 1971, The Louis Powell memo lays out the Corporate wealth class’s takeover of America
Click photo to read
The Powell Memo
Harry Truman, US President, dropped ‘The Bomb’ on Japan, and Corporate America!
Richard Nixon, deranged US President, impeached, started rigging the Supreme Court to destroy equality and the American Dream by appointing his personal attorney, Louis Powell, to the Supreme Court.
Louis Powell, the modern architect of runaway government. He’s the man who killed equality, for the world. He wrote the infamous Powell memo, distributed to corporate America in 1971, to create corporate control of American politics, education, and the economy. This is where ‘Think Tanks’ and ‘Special Interest Groups’ began, who basically were corporations conspiring against the American people for control of American economic, and foreign policy. This is where corporate money in politics took over the American people’s government by paying politicians and writing our laws for them to pass in their ‘Think Tanks’. This bad American Dream turning point began corporations, controlled by the global elite wealth class, modern ascent to control America and progressively bankrupt it, destroying 300 Million American dreams today.

Will of the People
Will of the People
Words and Music by ADRIAN
How can they all forget? Once they get elected
What happens to their brains, was it all, just an election game
Representative Democracy, is supposed to be, for every body
Only one thing ever mattered
Only one thing ever been true
Only one thing honest politicians elected to do
Will of the people, Will of the people
Will of the people, Will of the people
It starts with "We The People", now sits hidden on capital mall
Politicians focus on party agendas, instead of listening to
The people who sent them
Need to reform the system, separate government and big business
Like Church and State
Stop arguing with your neighbor, that's what big media’s paid for
Focus on where we agree, that’s how we’ll fix our country
After years of abuse, from blatant lies, and half-truths
We all need to unite to defeat, the corporations with the ropes round our feet
It will be easier than you think, when we all act, as one
“It’s time to make all our votes count equally again
Let’s go to the website, RTDNOW.COM
Sign the petition to save America
Get the message our virally
Until Everyone has signed the petition
And together we will restore:
The will of the people”
