Congress Breach of Contract with The People

1 Comment

Charlie Reese article below introduction.

Congress continues to legislate our nation out of existence causing many U.S. families to suffer. Also bypassing our Constitution and Bill of Rights under the guise of inimical legislations. Also confusing the masses by promoting and using so-called conservative candidates that in reality are not, but mainly vote to the status quo of taking our nation down to an unconstitutional form or government of less liberties and tracking like our energy and now even car miles being suggested by Governor Ritter. In plain sight it is obvious that most of the citizenry is being kept in the dark while our Nation is being transformed into one where there is no real freedom nor autonomy for it will be a more controlled type of society with monitoring and tracking of our health and energy. Below is an article sent to me by a very concerned person who invested a lot of her own personal money to educate others in our community yet no one seems to be helping or paying attention. If you own a business you also most be educated on the issues, for under cap & trade and other wacky laws in addition to people being asked to pay for driving this will hurt private business owners which is what is needed for these special interests in our Congress to take us to Future Socialism later an-olygarchy of big business only not community ones. Below is an article that explains very well our situation and how our congress is 100% responsible for their breach to our Constitutional form of government and the people.
Article of reporter Charlie Reese follows:

545 vs 300,000,000
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 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 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 545 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 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, 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, Afghanistan and Pakistan, it’s because they want them there.

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 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 “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” 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.

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it………. Is up to you.

This might be funny if it weren’t so darned true.

Be sure to read all the way to the end…………..

Words to the Beatles song “Taxman”

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom…’

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Our world of taxes! Now they want to apply a VAT (Value Added Tax)
Accounts Receivable Tax

CDL license Tax
Cigarette Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Dog License Tax

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

And I still have to ‘press 1’ for English!?

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!! GO AHEAD – – – BE AN AMERICAN!!!

Pass this on!

Taxed Enough Already

Colorado Springs Mail-in Ballot Issues November 3, 2009 Voting

1 Comment

 City_Colorado_Springs_2C

       In a time when manufacturing is losing  jobs and a health crisis swine is pending in the horizon now more than ever citizens need to focus and decide how to vote. Once the proposed issues pass they will be permanent. We still do not know the effect that the health so called “crisis” will have on business or the workers ability to stay employed if ill.  It would have been nice to see the very same individuals proposing tax hikes to also propose along side it a financial system reform starting at the State level moving us out of the fiat “print money like no tomorrow”  money system.  We must be realistic and study all the angles. Now the so called “health” care bill will also affect business and there seems to be no end in sight to deficits, taxes, spending with one gimmick after the other thrown in front of us. We need monetary reform and jobs, not more bureaucracy. If workers had their manufacturing plants , jobs and income then they could buy the things that they need like insurance and buy things so the city could have its share of income from the purchases. The Fed, Wall Street, and bureaucrats, et al will continue to do as they please with other people’s money for they know they can count on those at the community city level to just pass the costs on to the citizens. What really saddens me is that we have such great people in this country and all families stand to suffer. Already many could not even afford the higher utility bills last year and now more taxes are being proposed. We must pray and hope that things will work out. We need now more than ever to keep our eye on the 8th ball for we stand to lose a lot.  We had a meeting October 3rd trying to trouble shoot the four major areas of concern to study such as Economy, Health Care, Taxes and Law & Order.  Here is a brainstorming sheet that we had which I jokingly call it the Republican Party Economic dead sea scrolls.

 

 

 

Economic Dead Sea Scrolls Republican Party Meeting

Economic Dead Sea Scrolls Republican Party Meeting

  300-City of Colorado Springs

“Shall an initiated ordinance be adopted by the City of Colorado Springs to read as follows:

Excluding sales and use taxes forwarded from enterprise customers, all enterprise payments to the city shall phase out in eight or fewer equal yearly steps

starting in January, 2010, with all yearly savings passed on as reductions to each customer bill in dollar amounts as equal as possible. Hereafter, all loans,

gifts, and subsidies between an enterprise and the city or another enterprise are prohibited?”

___    For the Ordinance

 __   Against the Initiated ordinance

 

 2C – CITY OF COLORADO SPRINGS“SHALL CITY TAXES BE INCREASED $46,000,000 ANNUALLY BY INCREASING 2009 GENERAL PROPERTY TAX 6.00 MILLS, 1.00 ADDITIONAL MILL

 

PER YEAR FOR FOUR YEARS, CONTINUING THEREAFTER, CONSTITUTING VOTER-APPROVED REVENUE CHANGE?”

___ Yes

___ No
Ballot Issues in Plain English
Issue 300 will END the stormwater fee when voting for the ordinance on ballot and phase out other taxes the city calls “fees” bypassing word tax.
Issue 2C raises property taxes and they will become permanent if passed.
Note: The two ballot issues are opposites, so the storm water fee you would vote “for the ordinance” so as not to support storm fee.
In 2c a vote No is no for the property tax hike.
