CITIZEN NEEDS TO READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS JOURNALIST
HAS SCRIPTED IN THIS
MESSAGE. READ IT AND
THEN REALLY THINK
ABOUT OUR CURRENT

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
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are
against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have

million are directly, legally, morally, and
individually responsible for the domestic problems that
plague this country.
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,
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
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
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.
Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole
responsibility to the House of resentatives 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 545
people who stand convicted
-- by present facts --
of incompetence and irresponsibility.
can't 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.
the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
the budget is in the red, it's because
they want it in the red .

There are no insoluble government problems.
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.
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
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.
should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
