Hundreds of billions of dollars are now set to flow into left wing liberal and environmental programs from the Government Stingallus (sting-all-us) Bill. But what concerns me more is how much of this money - OUR MONEY - will be funneled into the Democrat party as campaign contributions in 2010 and 2012 to assure political power remains in Democrat hands?
Does anyone think there are any provisions in the bill to prevent the money from being used for that purpose? Of course not. Pelosi, Reid, Obozo, and the Democrats are now rewarding campaign contributors with handouts of our money. You can bet that those organizations and unions will recycle our money back to liberal organizations and Democrat candidates.
There is a reason why most of the money won’t be released until after 2010. It’s going to be needed by Democrat candidates in 2012 when Obozo‘s campaign contributions are more closely scrutinized than they were last year. It may not be quite so easy to get away with accepting money from foreign donors next time.
This disastrous pile of socialist fly paper called a “Stimulus Bill” does little or nothing to stimulate the free market economy. It does everything possible to stimulate the growth of socialist government and the Democrat party. The communistic policies that Obozo is putting into place through Congress and by use of executive orders are no different from what we saw in the Soviet Union before it imploded.
Language added to the Government Stingallus Bill now provides for state legislators to overrule the decision of their governor to refuse to take federal money with federal strings attached. Here is another power grab of states’ rights and a trashing of the 10th Amendment. The Federal government is now attempting to usurp the powers of state governors who oppose Obozo’s socialism, by crippling their ability to veto liberal legislators.
Acting President Obozo very quietly signed a pro union executive order on Friday that mandated the exclusive use of union labor for federal construction projects mandated in the Stingallus Bill. This assures that any federal money will go to benefit unions, which contributed considerable amounts of money to Democrat campaigns. It also pretty much guarantees that a lot of that money will be delivered into Democrat campaign funds in future elections.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has made the following statement.
“President Obama's executive order will drive up the cost of government at a time when we should be doing everything possible to save taxpayer dollars. Federal contracts should go to the businesses that can offer taxpayers the best value - not just the unions who supported the Democrats' campaigns last year. Quietly signing executive orders to payback campaign backers undermines Obama promise to change Washington . It is a disappointment for Americans hoping for more transparency and less politics as usual in Washington.”
On February 19, Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC) called opposition to the stimulus package "a slap in the face of African-Americans." In particular, he was referring to opposition by southern governors such as Rick Perry of Texas, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Mark Sanford of Clyburn's home state of South Carolina. Clyburn contended that these governors are refusing federal money because they don’t want it going to predominantly black communities in their states.
This is just typical of how Democrats think; labeling conservatives as racists while ignoring the fact that there are some Republicans who still maintain American principles, values and ethics, and don’t want unconstitutional federal socialist handouts. Since Obozo came on the scene, any resistance to liberal/socialist/communist policy is now considered racist by the corrupt left.
Support for free market economies, and a slap in the face at Obozo, recently came from a surprising source. Russian Prime Minister and former President Vladimir Putin warned the governments of the West to stop interfering in their free market economies.
“Interference of the State, the belief in the omnipotence of the State: that is a reaction to market failures,” Putin said. “There is a temptation to expand direct interference of state in economy. In the Soviet Union that became an absolute. We paid a very dear price for that.”
Think communism can't happen here? Think again. This government is already well on it's way to seizing control of the mortgage industry, the banking industry, the automobile industry, the airline industry, the energy industry, the food and drug industries, the broadcast industry, public education, public health, parental authority, legalized murder of babies, and with this bill, hundreds of billions of our tax dollars will be used to fund hundreds of socialist, environmental, and sleazy anti-free-market programs to assure that America never again returns to a free market, capitalist society.
It was government interference in the free market that caused this current recession with the Federal Housing Authority, the Community Reinvestment Act, and other liberal socialist programs, which led to the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which led to the collapse of the entire housing market, banks, and a major decline of the stock market.
Banking and mortgage CEOs didn’t take advantage of stupid people buying homes, as Acting President Obama and his ilk keep saying. Those banks and mortgage lenders were ordered by a Democrat congress to issue those Subprime, high risk loans to people who couldn’t afford to pay them back. But they were told “don’t worry, Fannie and Freddie will buy the paper and cover your losses.” And for years, Fannie and Freddy cooked the books to hide their losses.
Then when the 2008 bailout money came, banks were told by Henry Paulson (D) to use the money to buy up smaller banks rather than use it for making loans to consumers. And now we are going to trust the same people - the same party who created these programs - to fix the problem they themselves created? This is insanity.
At a pro life rally in Hastings, Nebraska, Alan Keyes said to reporters:
"Obama is a radical communist, and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it's true. He is going to destroy this country, and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist."
Keyes later added:
"I'm not sure he's even president of the United States, neither are many of our military people now who are now going to court to ask the question, 'Do we have to obey a man who is not qualified under the constitution?' We are in the midst of the greatest crisis this nation has ever seen, and if we don't stop laughing about it and deal with it, we're going to find ourselves in the midst of chaos, confusion and civil war."
A majority of the American people are uninformed and ignorant of politics due to a simple lack of interest. They have been hoodwinked by the Democrats into believing that government will offer them financial security. They never learned from the liberal run public schools how the free market engine of America works, and that accepting financial security from the government will cost them their freedom and liberties. Many of them don't even care about their freedom and liberties because they have been taught that equality is more important than competition and success.
They would rather be comfortable pawns of the government - living in poverty - than accept personal responsibility for their lives with the opportunity to improve them. They would rather wait for the government to make their lives better, than to exercise their own initiative to do it themselves. Some would prefer to sit at home taking care of illegitimate babies, as long as the government offers to pay their bills for them with our money. We must stop this government from encouraging this kind of appalling behavior.
Benjamin Franklin once said: “I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.” He also said: “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Franklin understood that along with freedom comes personal responsibility. You cannot have one without the other. In a free society, personal responsibility for one’s self and family is absolutely essential or there is no freedom.
When you relegate your personal responsibility to the government and the taxpayers, you must surrender the freedom to make your own choices and decisions. You have to live in a box by the rules set by the government. This is the goal of the current administration and congress; get as many people as possible dependent on government entitlements as quickly as possible so that when the next election comes, Democrat candidates will be in a position to say, "Look at what these Republicans want to do. They want to take this benefit away from you and they want to take that benefit away from you."
Right! They want to take away those things that should never have been given by the government in the first place. In taking these things away, those dependent on government will be forced to accept their personal responsibility and will gain personal freedom which is a value that this country was founded on. These scare tactics by the left will work on those ignorant slobs who never understood what America is really all about. It’s time for some real education and tough love in this country.
We complain that the huge debt that the stingallus bill is creating will be on the backs of our children and grandchildren. Let's not forget that it was this younger generation who voted these people into power. It was the younger generation that caused this mess. This is simply a case of what goes around, comes around. They will get the government they deserve and voted for.
Maybe by the next election they will realize the errors of their ways. In the meantime, we will all have to suffer for the ignorance of the younger generation. It’s time to repeal the 26th Amendment. Especially when we consider the kind of education these kids are getting today.
It appears that the civil courts are not going to deal with the Obama citizenship issue. Isn't it time to treat this as a criminal issue? Should the FBI or the Justice Dept. be investigating Obama's eligibility to run for president? The FBI is charged with investigating voter fraud, but what about candidate fraud? Who investigates that?
If Article II, Section 1 of the constitution, which states that a president must be a natural born citizen, can be ignored not only by both major political parties, state legislatures, the Supreme Court, and the media, but by every elected and appointed official in Washington, then our Constitution has been rendered null and invalid. The American people must act to regain control of our government according to the founding documents.
When a car costs more to keep it running than it is worth, we get rid of it and replace it with a new one. When a government costs us more than it is worth and continually malfunctions, it's time to get rid of it and replace it with a new one.
If Article II, Section 1 can be ignored, it then follows that the American people have the right to ignore the 16th Amendment (income tax) and should no longer consider themselves required to pay tax on, or report annual income to the IRS. This, of course, would require a nationwide campaign and organization.
Any response to complaints from the IRS should refer to January 20, 2009 and Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, and state that on that date, the Constitution was invalidated with the swearing in of Barack Hussein Obama as President of the Untied States of America. If an original article of the constitution is no longer relevant, then certainly an amendment that came years later cannot be.
All income taxes should be withheld from this government until such time as constitutional government is restored to the United States and a qualified president is elected. All officials in Washington share equal blame for this crisis and their incomes from the taxpayers must be terminated. There is only one other alternative; revolution and civil war.
We, the American people, must not stand for this disrespect and trampling of our Constitution by the very people elected to serve and represent us. Their disrespect for us, our country, and our laws must not go unpunished.
We, as a people, have but one recourse short of armed insurrection. The only message our elected officials will listen to is a withholding of taxes. Cut off their funds until this government is reformed and complies with our Constitution. We must demand that all government spending be curtailed with the exception only of those things enumerated in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution.
The Stingallus Bill is unconstitutional as will be most of the other legislation this congress has been considering. If we do nothing and simply remain complacent and obedient citizens, this regime in Washington will continue down the path they are on into an oppressive and arrogant socialist oligarchy.
This unconstitutional "Government Stimulus Bill" represents the contempt and disrespect Democrats hold for our country and our Constitution. When it all falls apart, Democrats must be held entirely responsible for the destruction and carnage that will be what‘s left of America.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [Freedom and Liberty], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
These words from our Declaration of Independence began the American Revolution against Britain. They are just as important and relevant today as they were in 1776. It is time that Americans take another look at the documents that formed the foundation of our country, especially the younger generations who never saw them during their years of socialist indoctrination in the public school system. The time for Americans to act is now, before this rush to communism becomes irreversible.
