I am Dominique Domales Topper, a made-up personality intended for joy and merriment.
I am a human behind this profile, and if you bother me with pedophilia, animal abuse, violence, rape chat, I will report you in any way possible.
I am LGBT-friendly and land somewhere in that spectrum.
I am mental-health aware and fall somewhere on those spectrums.
No, serious, them clowns in the Music Chat even said "spectrum."
Have you seen the bumper sticker that reads, "mean people suck"? It is also true that "Kind people rock."
DomDomTopper: It is not the study of history that will save us from our past errors, the study of our intentions is what is needed.
DomDomTopper: While I am officially registered as a Democrat and I also voted for Biden/Harris I am far from being a dem and even further from being a rep.
I could not vote for anyone but Biden with Trump in the running. I do value how the dems and reps created a balance between practical and the social needs of the people.
I never did like any of the outcomes though. Every year seems to be worse than the one before. Stuff always costs more never less, hate seems louder never softer, and the way of life we all had is now what we have.
I don't pretend to be smart enough to have all the answers but I am smart enough to hear people out if they can keep the US/THEM out of their concerns. It is like Joe said, " I will be a president for ALL Americans..." I am also a citizen for ALL Americans.
DomDomTopper: A dem, rep and anarchist see a pothole, the dem ask who will fix it, the rep offers to make a committee, they turn to the anarchist but he had called his buddy that owns a contracting company and there were already doing the damned job. Who are YOU!!!
DomDomTopper: It is a very sad thing that nearly every person in here is following some lie. Trump fans, democrats, qanoners and BLMers alike. The lie is that we should fear each other.
DomDomTopper: I have never forgotten that we once were people that thought it was ok to own other humans. We aren't the first people to do so but we are the first to break away from one situation only to enslave other humans. What we did the natives of this land is even more shameful.
What would make me proud is to be a people of mix color/race that makes right our wrongs from the past in whatever way we can. I don't mean I want my president to be and we can call it good. No, we need to be a few million individuals starting and learning to take responsibility for the crap history we have built.
DomDomTopper: All of the social unrest and racism that is going on with Trump isn't why I vote against him. It is mostly the Environmental damages that the Trump pen has written away.
It is up to you and I to fix systemic racism, we are a nation of the people and much of the hate that we see in our streets and social media is also of the people.
Let us be a people that fixes our glaring faults and bigotries of all kinds. Let us be a people that controls our leaders instead of letting them control us by teaching us to fear and ultimately hate.
DomDomTopper: The most important thing I can contribute to this conversations is, YOUR LIFE MATTERS. I mean that and without any sarcasm.
DomDomTopper: We don't have to be on one side or the other. There is not a political party can represent my values. Each may touch a point or two that I value but none make even 51% of what earns my vote.
If it weren't for wanting to see an end to Trump I would write in or go libertarian or green which ever had the stronger chance. On the other hand if Trump wins it could be step close to a dramatic reversal of some kind but really ugly stuff like civil war. That could be faster than change via the Biden route.
Again I say, don't pick those sides that are offered (OTHER THAN WHEN YOU CAST YOUR VOTE) before and after voting, start really looking for what changes you can personally make that brings yo closer to the country you want.
Making wise choices with your spending and what you support is more powerful than you vote when you become mindful and research. Not being such big consumers sends a clear message that our values are changing. By quality over price, rarely do you get better for less but paying less for trash cost us all more (mindfreakery).
DomDomTopper: It is true that things are really messed up and that "we the people" could use leadership that supports our well being without favor to the wealthy or the right color or gender. We need to remember that this just didn't happen, it happened AS WE WATCHED.
There was a day when cancer, diabetes and heart disease were rare and today this is the norm. This also happened as we watched and participated.
In both situations "we the people" have outsourced some part of our life and entrusted it to others. Like with food, we used to bring it home and make food but now we buy food that prepared for us like TV dinners, mac n cheese, hot dogs and fast foods.
Outsourcing our food has lead to outsourcing our health care. Today we are fatter than anytime in history and we are also sicker. To me this is exactly what is going on politically.
If we want to heal our bodies we should eat whole foods, not processed foods, if we want to hear our nation we should be mindful of what we do and we should always hear each other out.
Stop letting leaders control us and lets show them how to control their own selves so they can set the example we would want our children to follow.
DomDomTopper: We live in this world were truth isn't the absolute that it used to be. It does seem as if believing that something is true is what passes for actual truth. Let's stop being like that, ok?
DomDomTopper: I feel strongly about our responsibility towards the Earth's climate and that we should protect it. I feel strongly about health, health-care and that I should be responsible for my own health and not trust the American health systems.
My single largest contribution in BEING THE CHANGE is I no longer consume animal products at all. Since going vegan I have cured the cancer I was diagnosed with, recovered a lot of health after type two diabetes, 3 strokes, 4 major heart attacks and have done it while reducing my medications and ZERO cancer treatments.
To say I was lucky in overcoming so much and living with ZERO medications today does not do justice to the doctors that saved my my life, more than once. It also does not recognize the education I have gained looking for a better solution to my health.
I was not lucky, I AM fortunate. I have taken the little bit of life that was handed to me by talented doctors and now people say I am some kind of miracle, anomaly or somehow unique and not something other's can reproduce.
The thing is, when I eat only plants I not only stop being a medical burden and take away some money from Big Pharma, I also honor two of my firmly held beliefs. Being a vegan means that you stop supporting the environmental destruction that raising and killing more than 1 BILLION creatures accounts for. The other major thing I am proud of and hope to inspire you with is that as a vegan I take a major responsibility for my health.
This is some of what I mean by BE THE CHANGE. When you are the change you are a person that TAKES CONTROL.
I am seeking other ways to address in the most practical way the things that weight so heavy on my heart, like racism, actual justice, freedom, freedom, FREEDOM TO CHOSE WHO WE ARE. You always do actually have the freedom to chose who you are, sometimes the price our reasonable choices.
If you want to talk, be reasonable, explore what other changes we can take that will affect the leadership we have instead of them having this effect on us, I am here for THAT conversation.
DomDomTopper: When we stop listening to those we do not agree with, then we are choosing to NOT be ONE NATION.
DomDomTopper: Hearing the arguments, acknowledging the perceptions and beliefs that drive our views and NOT bullying, name calling and so much of the behaviors that we see is how we can start to become ONE NATION again.
DomDomTopper: No matter if you are in a chat room or watching a political debate, IT ALWAYS seems to be the other persons fault. This is not true, we all share some responsibility if not for the the problem then at least for the solution. BE THE CHANGE
DomDomTopper: The rules are meaningless to rule breakers. We see this over and over as our leaders, protectors and other people act as if the rules do not apply to them. At the point we are in the US right now, the rules are used against those they should protect.
DomDomTopper: I feel like Biden, the negative attention that Trump is getting is counter productive. I try to not really talk about how bad Trump is, but the drive around Walter Reed while he is still contagious? REALLY????
DomDomTopper: It is a sad thing that so many are resorting to such extreme language and displaying such fear and hate. Many seem so ready for violence too. This is what "THEY" want from us, how about we just don't play along. BE THE CHANGE
DomDomTopper: The name calling and other hateful behavior are things our parents and teachers tried to teach most of us to avoid. That our leaders do it is no excuse for you and I to act so badly.
DomDomTopper: Let's remember that Mr Trump is still a person as is his wife and his family, I wish him and his family a speedy recovery. Good job Joe Biden YOU sir, just stepped up with that no more negative ads bit. I love that and wish that was every campaign.
