The following are not my original words. I tried through Google to find the author, but alas I could not find him or her. But I do love what it has to say, and I wanted to share it. Please take the time to read it and leave your take on it.

Thank you, Spiney

Read This..This is where the blame really falls

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them..
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.
You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 535 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 535 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 535 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 535 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red ..
If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it’s because they want them in IRAQ
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 535 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 535 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess

Dear President Carter, I was at the DC Rally on 9/12 and I am not a racist. I had an African American who was my best friend in my wedding. I listen to inner city African American Preachers on my Christian Radio Station WDAC.  I have nothing against anyone just because of their color.

Even though I didn’t vote for President Obama I was proud of our country on January 20, 2009. I was actually a little ashamed that it took until 2008 for a African American to make it into the Presidential Election. I thought to myself here could be a new beginning, maybe my generations chance at a President Kennedy like experience. It didn’t take long until I realized that was not to be. I don’t dislike President Obama the person. I dislike his policies, the radicals that surround him, All the money he is spending, and the direction he is taking our country. I have often said I wish he was white, for only one reason, so it would be politically correct to disagree with him!

President Carter I could not vote for you because I was only 16. But I did support you in your campaign and I was at your inauguration. I felt the same chance for a fresh start after the heavy hand of the Nixon administration, and Gerald Ford, someone we never elected. Here was a non insider, plus an extremely intelligent man a nuclear scientist, and yes important for me, a Christian man. But then the oil crises hit and you told us to wear a sweater. You showed a weakness on foreign policy, especially during the Iran Hostage Crises. In the end I was glad to see you go. and while I like President Ronald Reagan, I voted for John Anderson in my first Presidential Election, 1980. I remember you as a weak president. Though I will give you your proper dues on arranging the most important Egypt – Israeli Peace accords. That you can be proud of.

I see a lot of you in President Baraq Obama as he makes one of his first moves as President a worldwide apology trip.

President Carter, you are a smart man, so please don’t make the mistake of wrongly accusing me and many others of being racist, just because we disagree with President Obama’s policies, advisers, and actions.

Sincerely, Spiney

You may not agree with my view on things. I am libertarian with some conservative leanings. And I have respect for moderates and some liberal views. But would you really want to see the United States turn towards Socialism or worse Communism? I would have never thought that possible but events of the last year concern me.  It started with the Bush administration. The used the threat of terrorism to overstep boundaries and begin spying, probably more than we will ever know. Then the used the threat of a financial meltdown to intervene in the Banking and Financial sector, bailing out whomever they felt were “Too big to fail”  Along came the Change that a majority , not me, voted for. Barack Obama promised to Change the system. His Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel on watching even more meltdown in the economy stated “Never let a good crises go to waste” They didn’t they propped up more financial institutions, pumped billions into GM and Chrysler in an effort to save them from bankruptcy. Then oh well, they went bankrupt anyway, taking about $20 Billion US taxpayer dollars with them.  Money we don’t have so we borrowed it from Communist China. Ford Motor Company was smart. They say problems earlier than the other two and made their own changes. They took NO money from the government and are currently even after the giant Cash For Clunkers debacle blowing the doors off of GM and Chrysler. Side note, Spiney should have bought Ford Stock when it was down around $2.00 a share. Then because we were heading off a Depression we had to sign a Huge Stimulus Bill to the tune of around $782 Billion Dollars. It had to be signed in like 5 days or the country was going to hell in a hand basket. So they scared everyone and pushed that through. To this date, about 6 months later they have spent less than 10-12% of that money. So what was the rush? It was supposed to be for “Shovel Ready Jobs” where people would be put to work right away. In the mean time the unemployment figure keeps going up.  The next time it is announced it will probably hit 10%. Passing the Stimulus Bill was supposed to stop it at 8.5%.  Being Socialist is when the Government has a large stake in the production of goods and the economy in general. Where as Capitalism which we were founded on, and ran well for over 200 years, the Production of goods, the Farms, The Banks, etc are all Privately owned.  Now the Government wants to Nationalize the Health Care Industry. This represents about 16% of our total economy. So far everything that the Government does run has a terrible record of being a financial success. Social Security, Medicare, Medic-aide, The Post Office, and Amtrak all are either Bankrupt or near Bankrupt. They run on huge deficits and don’t exactly provide a bargain service. The cost of postage goes up about every 6 months. and now they are proposing dropping Saturday delivery in order to stay afloat. The upside is that’s one less day you will get bills and junk mail. Have you ever priced a ticket on Amtrak? I love trains, but every time my wife and I look at taking Amtrak vs the car, the car wins, even at $4 a gallon gas.  Unless you are traveling alone it doesn’t pay. It’s much cheaper to travel by bus, a private company.

The President now has 35 plus Czars, or special experts that report directly to him. They work in the white house. Most but not all receive a sizable salary. Non were voted on by Congress. President Obama said I trust these people to by my experts in their field, even though some are duplicating efforts for which there are already Departments and Committees that have been approved by congress or are made up of congressional representatives.  Many are old friends of the Presidents. Some have very scary backgrounds and believes.  Number one is the Green Jobs Czar Van Jones.  He is a self avowed Radical and Communist. He goes on the record stating this. He was arrested during the Rodney King Riots of the early 90’s and when in prison he became a radical and then a communist. He started an organization called STORM which stands for Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement. Storm studies and believes in the theories of Lenin & Marx. Their dream is a multiracial Socialist Utopia. This man is a good friend of the President, will be in charge of Billions of dollars of Green Jobs Stimulus money and helped with other Czars and friends of the President write the $782 Billion Dollar Stimulus Bill. The one that was so large, no Congressmen or Senators had the time to read it. Wonder what’s hidden in there.  Then there is the Pay Czar Kenneth R. Fienberg. His job is to look into the compensation of executives of companies who received Government assistance through Tarp Funds. He will Cap their salaries and decide whats fair or not.  There is the Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein. He is said by the President to be a Dear and trusted friend. He wrote a book in 2002 Republic.com that discussed the drawbacks of limitless access of information on the Internet. Especially where it allowed like minded people to find others with same interest or beliefs. He wanted search engines to also mandatory lead to sites with opposing points of view. So much for free speech and thought.  Science Czar John Holdren.  He co-wrote a book in 1977 called Eco-Science that talked about over population threatening the existance of sustainable life on the planet. He proposed such ideas as mandatory sterilization of women after their 3rd child. And that this could be done within the constraints of the constitution. Also Putting contreceptive fluids in our water supply.  Then there is Mark Loyd. He is in charge of diversity for the FCC. He is on video praising the way that Hugo Chavez took over the media in Venezuela in order to put down dissadent speach that was harming him. Chavez is just short of a dictator. He is friends with just about everyone in the world who hate US and we have someone within the FCC who is praising his tactics. Someone who if he had his way would change the face of Talk Radio as you know it.  and you know what, Talk Radio is totally capitalistic and market based. If no one liked or listened to conservative talk radio, it wouldn’t be on the air, and the big names such as Rush Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity, and Glenn Beck wouldn’t be millionaires. They tried to combat them with a network based on Liberal and Left speaking air personalities. It was called Air America. It had big names like Janean Garafalo, Al Franken and others. It bombed. It burned through money, got no sponsers, because no one listened. And I’ll admit I like Janean. I think she is a funny actress and thoughtful person. But they couldn’t buy an audience.  No one forces people to listen to Rush, Shawn, or Glenn. They strike a chord with their listeners. I’ll admit I was an early listener to Rush and Shawn. I can’t take them anymore. While they do make some good points, they are over the top and totally one sided. If Barak Obama brokered a lasting peace with Isreal and the Arabs, they would find fault with it. They give him no slack. And when you do that you are like the boy who cried wolf. If everything is negative then when you really do come out with something we should listen to or be concerned about, it just sounds like sour grapes.

I am a follower of Glenn Beck. I like him because he provides information with humor and also gives people benefit of the doubt. He also backs up what he says with the peoples own words, either in their writings, video taped conversations or speaches etc. and he brings on experts both for and against. When he shows me that there are people who hate the capitalist system within the White House, who are Friends of the President and backs it up it scares me. I grew up in the 60’s. I grew up threw the cold war. My Father fought in the end of WWII. He didn’t fight, and we didn’t win the cold war only to hand our country over to people who want to see us as a socialist country. I for one won’t stand for it. In order to put my feet and my mouth where my heart and head is I am heading to the 9-12 march on Washington DC on 9-12-2009. I along with thousands of others are going to let our voices be heard that this is not the America we want. I hope a million people show up. It’s much more important than Health Care, Stimulus, Nationalizing the Auto Industry. It is steering our Country from 200 years Plus of a Capitalist Republic to a Socialist Country where the Government knows best. When not hard work and better ideas, but some bureaucrat in Washington will decide what you can do, and how much you can make. and oh yes, how much you can keep. Where there will no longer be the dream of being the next Bill Gates, Donald Trump, or a Doctor or Lawyer who makes good money because he studied hard, worked hard, took risks. That will all be gone, because if you make what the government considers is too much money, they will take it from you and give it to someone else who is worse off, maybe by no fault of their own, or maybe because they squandered their opportunity at an education. I’ve started and ran several businesses during my life. There is no greater satisfaction than doing that. And I started them all from the ground up with a dream and hard work and yes maybe a credit card. But I did and they all made money. I also worked for several small businesses who did the same thing. They all had passion and drive to make their dream work.  Under Socialism you all sit back and wait for Big Government to take care of you. We will all be equally poor and highly taxed. That is not the America for me. If you beleive the same it ‘s time to wake up America. I’d suggest you give Glenn Beck a try. He’s on Fox News every week night at 5pm. He also has a website GlennBeck.com and a 3 hour Radio show everyday. If not him, then do your own research and come up with your own conclusions. That’s all the better. Google, Bling, or Yahoo President Obama +Czars.  Then look into who George Soros is.  He is a Multi-Billionaire who’s aim is to bring the US down.  I don’t understand it, we made him rich, and he hates us. Also research Socialism, Marxism, Communism. Then check out YouTube where you will find many of these people praise communist leaders or hate america in their own words. Such as this gem: Here you will find a YouTube clip of Congresswoman Diane Watson Democrat  CA while at a town meeting on August 27th of this year told the crowd how much she loves and admires Communist Dictator Fidel Castro of Cuba.

I’ll leave you with this, if Capitalism is so horrible then why is the United States and it’s people the greatest contributors to charity bar non.  Bill & Melinda Gates with their Foundation and now they have teamed up with Warren Buffet. These are the two riches people in the United States have pledged to give ALL of their money to charity. Much of it going to Africa to fight Aids, Malaria, and help them with sustainable crops.  Do you know of any great Socialist or Communist Leaders who are doing the same? If you do I’d love to know their name.  There is still time to get on a 912 caravan bus or car pool to go to DC and let the m know how you, the great American Citizen feels. Like I said I’m going and with my back it will be one painfull day and the next 2 or 3 after it. But it is too important to sit and the recliner of rage and not participate. And I was not coerced, I’m not part of some big organized group being told what to do. I took the time and found a group going because I wanted to participate and I can’t drive that far. PLEASE tell me how you feel about this. Thanks for reading. Spiney

The State Newspaper of Russia Pravda declared that Capitalism had died with a whimper.  They beat us at our own game without firing a shot. Joining in the frey our old buddy Hugo Chavez of Venezuela also declared that Capitalism is dead.  Here is the English transaction of the Pravda story:

President Obama shakes hands with Hugo Chavez

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

BREAKING NEWS
Israel becomes Obama’s biggest dilemma
Anna Kournikova eleven years ago
More…

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

Well what do you think?  Have we traded away the Capitalistic system that made our country great for government bailouts. Instead of digging in and making it right ourselves we turned to our government to help us. But with that help you give up freedom, and indebt yourself and your children for the next 50 years to pay off that quick little bailout. Wake up little sheep before we all have tags on our ears or brands on our ass making us property of the USG. Is that what you really want? Do you realize how far and fast we have fallen in such a short time. I long for Bill, Hillary and Monica. Those were the best of times.  Tell me what you think Spiney.
