party disbanded at great personal expense to Kelley. Hoping to salvage his expedition, he sailed south to Veracruz, and after many hardships he assembled a party of U.S. citizens in Mexico who had settled in Monterey (Monterey, California). The party crossed Mexico to California, where Kelley, along with Joseph Gale, joined the party trader (fur trade) Ewing Young who was moving into the Oregon Country backed by the missionary (Oregon missionaries) Jason Lee (Jason Lee (missionary)). While in command of the Ok, ‘Joe the painter’… While the Star Beacon article was done quite well as a whole, the wording in this part about ‘the presidency and house painting’ is a bit too abbreviated, and a bit too disjointed. The more accurate version is… I have a degree in journalism from Bowling Green State University (w:Bowling Green State University) and have worked for several intermediate sized newspapers in Ohio. A ways into this, I changed professions and became a licensed chemical dependency counselor who started one of the first outpatient treatment programs in the Midwest for people who were raised in addictive dysfunctional families. (As an aside, during Campaign 2000, I told CBS News (w:CBS News) in Monterey (w:Monterey, California), that: “To heal the country, we have to heal the family.” After working in the chemical dependency field for about eight years, I felt a spiritual prompting – as other people at times feel spiritual promptings to do any number of things – to leave this profession and go out on the road to look for people trying to make a difference when it came to things like healing the family, saving the environment, helping the poor, creating peace felt compelled to gather these stories, using my journalism background, then share them with others – with the hopes of planting “seeds of change.” After a long, considered discernment process, I decided to go on the road and left Cleveland, in 1990. This was the start of an eight-year research period where I logged close to 100,000 miles. What I learned was a lot of tremendously creative, common sense solutions to practically all the issues of our day. Armed with this, I started to running for president in 1999, and have been doing it ever since (four successive election cycles). In each newspaper interview, each radio show, each speech... I share parts of what I researched with the hopes people will try some of it in their own town, and who knows how far out it will ripple from there. (I found that running for president is a great way to get a message out. And yes, I am indeed trying to win as well. Then I could get the information out a lot quicker, and further.) Now as far as the house painting, because I'm on the road some six to eight months a year campaigning, it's logistically quite hard to hold down a counseling or journalism job. So, instead, I do some part-time house painting to make ends meet. And thus, “Joe the painter.” Note: As an example, in the heart of w:Buffalo, New York Buffalo , I interviewed Dr. Myron Glick who felt his own 'spiritual prompting' to move his family to inner city Buffalo and start the Jericho Road Health Clinic. He uses a minimal sliding fee scale and has seen people from at least 50 different countries (Buffalo is a port city). Why? Because he's Christian (w:Christianity), he told me, and it is Jesus Christ (w:Jesus)' edict that we help the poor. I have shared Dr. Glick's story all over the country, with the hopes of inspiring other doctors to consider doing some version of the same. And each time that happens, I get a component of our healthcare bill passed – and another little kid living below the poverty line gets the medical help they might have otherwise not gotten.
