It’s happening right before our very eyes.
Congressional “Leaders” like Harry Reid, Christopher Dodd, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, Chuck Schumer and other assorted CRIMINALS are disregarding the overwhelming ‘Will of the People’ and pursuing a course of action according to their own personal agendas and objectives.
Even the two favored Job Applicants, John McCain and Barack Hussein Obama are calling for quick movement to pass legislation to “resolve the Nation’s economic ‘crisis'”.
President George W. Bush, along with Treasury Secretary (and former Goldman Sachs CEO) Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, have been demanding that we, the American people, bail out Wall Street’s poor judgment and risk-taking, to the tune of $700 billion.
SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS. That’s a lot of money, folks. Close to ten thousand dollars per American household, by averages. Now, be honest with yourself: When was the last time the U.S. Government gave us an honest price tag for anything?
This legislation, which the United States Congress has not even DISCLOSED to the American public, will likely end up costing U.S. Taxpayers TENS OF TRILLIONS of dollars.
Our Financial System isn’t ALL that’s BROKEN
Think about this for a moment, dear reader….
- We elect Senators and Representatives to, well, REPRESENT us in Congress. Voters elect people to these positions based on who the majority believe will best serve the interests of their State’s citizens. To enact the ‘Will of the People’, if you, uh, will.
- These elected officials are then supposed to go to work every day, making decisions and voting for legislation based on what their constituents (that’s you and me) want to have happen in Congress.
- Despite HUGE evidence that most Americans do NOT want taxpayer money being spent on the greed, corruption, and criminal activity of bankers, lenders, brokers and other Wall Street moguls, they are ALL determined to pass some sort of legislation to ‘rescue’ these firms from financial ruin.
This isn’t new. If you take the time to watch what happens in Congress every single day, you’ll see that these people serve their Corporate masters and not the American People. It’s just not something that’s pointed out directly in your face on the nightly news.
Your Opinion is Worthless
Failure to execute the will of the voters is equal to failing to do the job for which they were hired. When you and I engage in this kind of behavior, we’re fired. Out of work. Jobless. When these criminal politicians ignore the voice of the American public and do what they’re told by the highest campaign contributors, we simply smile and re-elect them. In a sense, we’re getting the corruption we deserve.
Right now, most of you are even determined to vote for either John McCain or Barack Hussein Obama when BOTH of these elitist criminals are planning to vote in direct contradiction to the desires of you, the voters. And yet on November 4th, you’re going to cast your vote for one of them anyway. They make eloquent speeches, talk about huge ‘change’ in Washington, but here in the next few days they’re going to send you a very clear signal:
“We don’t care about anything but getting elected, and once we’re elected we’re going to do what we damned well want to do. The only thing significant to me about you, John Q. Public, is your vote. Once we have that, all we want from you is your tax dollars. Your opinions do not matter to us, at all.”
Do it! Do it NOW!
Paulson and Bernanke tell us this crisis is imminent and critical. They tell us that credit markets are drying up, and predict all manner of gloom and doom if this continues. Unfortunately, credit market deals are among the most highly guarded secrets in the financial world…..so we can neither see nor verify their claims. How very convenient….about as convenient as the fact that Al Quaeda hides in distant and remote caves, and as convenient as hauling off all the World Trade Center evidence debris thousands of miles across the globe. Convenient? Try sinister. Try treasonous.
These two traitorous criminals are demanding that we allow them to throw TRILLIONS of dollars at this problem that they have, in fact, created.
They want it done FAST. NOW. QUICKLY. Because if we don’t, they tell us, we’re headed for an economic collapse. People will lose jobs. More homes foreclosed. Banks will fail. They may even have to cancel the next season of American Idol if we don’t act quickly!!
They want it done quickly, and they want it done quietly. Congressional “Leaders” have berated the thought that the two Job Applicants we’re currently interviewing, McCain and Obama, should even come to Washington to participate in this process.
One steps up and decides he has to come to DC to “fix things” when he hasn’t been here doing his job since April, and the other one has the Audacity (of Hope?) to say he can deal with it over the telephone, and to call him if he’s needed. Call him if he’s needed?!? Are you kidding me? There’s a natural-born-follower type comment if I ever heard it. Neither of these men deserve your vote, your contributions or your loyalty. They don’t even deserve the employment and paycheck they now currently enjoy!
Under Cover of Darkness
The proposed bailout legislation hasn’t been ironed out yet – they’re still “in negotiations”, they tell us.
We’re supposed to assume they are in negotiations with each other, working in a bi-partisan fashion, but I’m told by people on the scene that you can’t visit the toilet in Congress these days without tripping over 10 special-interest lobbyists from the financial sector. At least we know who they’re negotiating WITH, and it’s NOT the American People. Again, there’s no CHANGE in Washington, nor should you expect any.
Of course, once the ‘legislation’ is finalized, it’ll be published and distributed to the members of Congress – and I can only count on ONE member of the House to publish it to the American People. We’ll have, very likely, HOURS, not days, to read, digest, research, review and form an opinion on it. By the time most of us are done reading it, it will likely have already come up to a vote, late in the night, under cover of darkness, and if we’re VERY fortunate we’ll be able to watch this treasonous act unfold on CSPAN.
It’s intended to be a quick and quiet deed, done out of the ever-scrutinizing eye of the American public, and it’ll be done and over with before anybody has a chance to object. Just like the Federal Reserve Act. Just like the “Patriot” Act. If you’ve been paying any attention at all, you KNOW what those two juicy bits of treason have done for us as individuals – they’ve enslaved us to our Government. This will simply be one more lock on the door of Liberty and Freedom….because broke people can’t fight back too much.
Raping and Pillaging
Even now, the plunder of our nation and our very way of life has begun. At fire-sale prices, Warren Buffet – a man who most might say has enough money already – is sucking up cheap investments as a result of the economic downturn on Wall Street faster than a fat boy can empty a box of Hostess Twinkies.
History shows us this isn’t the first time this has been done. Financial Moguls have historically caused false and complex financial failures through speculation and rumor in order to drive prices down, only to swoop in and buy up everything in sight. Once the markets correct themselves naturally, as they ALWAYS do, who ends up being a Trillionaire? Ask the Rockefellers. Or the Rothschilds. The list there is endless.
Give YOURSELF a Pay Raise NOW!
The only way we can stop this madness is to act, and act now.
Political experts tell us that the conventional ‘wisdom’ in Congress is that for every phone call, email and fax they receive on an issue, it likely represents the voice of 10,000 others who didn’t bother to communicate, yet feel the same way. Many members of Congress realize that the citizens of this country do NOT want this bailout, and they’re nervous about supporting any legislation which will simply reward criminal and treasonous behavior on Wall Street and in the Halls of Congress. YOUR communication could very well be the one that makes the difference.
CALL, FAX, and E-Mail your Senator, Representative and The White House. Just click on this link and it will take you to a website where you can get the information for your State. That’s 4 phone calls. Two Senators, a Representative, and one bumbling idiot still staining up 1700 Pennsylvania Avenue with his putrid, criminal presence. Add Fax and Email, and that makes 12 small things you can do to tell the Lawmakers in this nation exactly how you feel about the “Wall Street Bailout”.
You only have to compose your comments ONE TIME. It’s not a huge effort, should take you ten minutes.
That works out to about $1.16 BILLION a second you can save the U.S. Taxpayers. Almost what the boys on Wall Street earn on a daily basis.
Of course, when you communicate with these people, demonstrate your outrage and encourage them with the same theme: “NOT ONE THIN DIME TO BAIL OUT WALL STREET!”. While you’ve got your Representative on the telephone, DEMAND that they support H.R. 2755, which is legislation designed to abolish the Federal Reserve System, That will go a long way to fixing the economic mess we’re in right now.
The Party’s Over
Once the idiocy of this Wall Street Bailout passes by, your work won’t be done. Odds are they’ll pass it anyway, despite what the American People want. Your next task, then, is to show the Members of Congress that they SHALL BE ACCOUNTABLE to “We, The People” come election day. Vote AGAINST anybody who votes to spend TRILLIONS of your dollars at a time when most of us come up short every month.
This includes Obama and McCain, folks. If they support a Wall Street Bailout, they don’t care about YOU.
Will things be tough if we don’t bail out these elitist criminals? Absolutely. People will lose jobs. People will lose homes. We will see our economy get very tight, possibly even crumble. There will be a recession. This too, shall pass, as it did during The Great Depression. Americans are resilient people, and our Spirit is unbeatable.
Together, we can work to REWARD those who produce good things for our Nation, and to PUNISH those who would take away our life’s work and legacy.
If we do not take a stand to return our country to the people, it may be tougher to do in the future. It’s a fight I would not look forward to, but it’s a fight I’ll fight every day by my actions and by the way I engage those with whom I’ve entrusted my future and that of my children and grandchildren.
In truth, I am,
