Last I heard, this morning, Elon is establishing three holding companies and moving forward with his idea to buy Twitter outright. That’s the thing with public companies – one can do that. Once again, Elon Musk is ignoring my pleas for Plan C (for Citizen) and going his own way. Well, two can play at that game.
The fact is Elon… I don’t have to sell my shares to you. At least I don’t see how you can force me to do so. Even if you take Twitter private, you may well have to put up with me. I may not be alone.
It should be obvious, anyone with a few dollars can do what I’m doing. You need not be rich. (I’m not.) You need not even be a proponent of free speech. In fact, those who diametrically oppose my point of view can buy just as much stock as anyone else. I’m betting they won’t. Granted there those wealthy globalists who seem to want it all who are most likely to try and stop Elon and myself. Okay, those of us who advocate the idea of Twitter being a platform for free speech. I’ll be the first to admit, Elon has yet to return my calls. The problem is, how many of you are willing to put your money where your mouth is? (I’m betting most leftist, globalist, big-government lovers can’t stand this site. Who’s left? The stalwart liberty-loving patriots and those with strong stomachs, but I digress.)
Granted, I can almost hear some mutter – “Yeah, yeah, what can I do? It won’t matter.” What you can do is suck it up and pick up a few shares of Twitter. The question is not whether you can but whether you have the will to follow through on your convictions. What conviction am I speaking of? The conviction that we, as Americans, have the basic God-given right to free speech. As of right now the CEO of Twitter, Parag Agrawal, is on record as opposing free speech on the platform.
“In a 2018 interview, Agrawal said Twitter should “focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.”
As a stockholder, I contend twitter should focus first and foremost on free speech. The organization is based on giving users a voice. My voice belongs to me and no one else. Just as I have no right to silence anyone else, including Mr. Agrawal, he and the other employees at Twitter has no right to silence anyone.
Mr. Agrawal, as a Twitter stockholder, I have this to say to you: if you desire to transform this company from a platform to a publisher, then please put your plan in writing and present it. As CEO your obligation is to utilize the resources available to you to grow the company and produce a satisfactory profit. Focus on that. I see no need to waste time on reinventing the corporation. From what I’ve seen of you thus far, I am leaning towards calling to have you replaced.
Now I have said my peace. I am just one stockholder and my ownership of the company is miniscule. However, if just ONE person joins me, our voices grow louder. If 100 voices join in, they will ring out amongst a crowd. A million voices would be hard, if not impossible to be ignored.
So why not join me? Pick up some shares of Twitter for yourself. You can have your say too. While I can spout here all I want, I really can’t do this alone. My shares, your shares, heck Elon Musk’s near 10% shares cannot do this. It will take a hoard of patriots to make a difference but that’s how our constitutional republic and our free-market systems were designed to work! Our strength, our power is in our numbers. Never was it intended to concentrate power in the nation’s capitol. Never.
