545 vs 300,000,000

People Wake Up!


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 donít propose a federal budget. The President does.


You and I donít have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.


You and I donít write the tax code, Congress does.


You and I donít set fiscal policy, Congress does.


You and I donít control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.


One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 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 donít 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 legislatorís 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? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He 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 cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted ó by present facts ó of incompetence and irresponsibility. I canít think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 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, itís because they want it unfair.


If the budget is in the red, itís because they want it in the red.

If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan itís because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan.

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, itís because they want it that way.


There are no insoluble government problems.


Do not let these 545 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 ďthe economy,Ē ďinflation,Ē or ďpoliticsĒ that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.


Those 545 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.

Apparently not many voters do have the gumption. Look at the low percentages that turn out to vote.

Further, look how many don't have the personal wherewithal to take the time to analyze the statements of a "good speaker", to see if they are as valid in purpose as they are good in sound.

I don't discuss them much, but I do rant occasionally.
