THE STRAIGHT TRUTH ABOUT BARNEY FRANK

Election 2010: Fear and Uncertainty are crippling our nation ...

We are facing a clear and present danger …

There is little doubt in my mind that the average American is approaching this election with trepidation: fear and uncertainty over job loss, an ailing economy, an increase in terrorist activities and the major social programs, Social Security and Medicare, which underpin our society.

Due to a confluence of events, mainly media-driven dissatisfaction with former President Bush and the historic opportunity to prove we have moved beyond racism, we elected a candidate, Barack Obama, to the Presidency of the United States without the customary introspective vetting that has kept the incompetent and unsuitable from the levers of power. Now we have a President who refuses to show his birth certificate, passport records, social security identification and school records to the public. Even though he could eliminate much of the controversy surrounding his presidency, he has chosen to spend millions of dollars to defend against the public’s request to know who there president really might be. What I do know is that, historically speaking, we have never welcomed socialists, Marxists, Communists and others who were virulently anti-American into the White House, much given them power as czars; power sometimes overshadowing that of legitimate Senate-confirmed Cabinet-level Secretaries.

And we have never seen this level of corruption in Congress; primarily embodied by the Congressional democrats who talk “transparency and accountability,” but who lock out the republicans to create legislation in secrete closed-door meetings with only far-left foundations and the special interests participating. With the democrats seeking perpetual one-party rule and permanent advantage over the legislative process. These are the people who demonize the insurance companies, Wall Street and other industries – only to cut them special deals which provides for continuing profits and a minimum of real regulatory control.

As we approach the 2010 election, there are several self-evident truths that you may want to consider …

One, our government is relatively dysfunctional …

The government is comprised of individuals all seeking the same thing: improving their own lives, earning a good living, achieving job security, minimizing the hassles of daily living. And only then do they concentrate on their secondary concerns: pleasing their immediate superiors, making their department look good, and fending off their competition who would snatch their bonus and their glory. And when these concerns are fulfilled, they turn to more mundane matters like doing good for the people who pay their salaries, “We the People.”

When you consider the government, the biggest mistake you can make is to consider it a monolith; acting with sole purpose and bringing effectiveness and efficiency to their work.

It is akin to herding cats – the trending sum of the individual actions somewhat indicates the overall direction of travel.

Two, our government is paradoxical …

Over the years, for various reasons mostly involving finances and the availability of a trained workforce, our economy has turned from agrarian to industrialized to service. Wonder why the current conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere have not turned into a major economic boost? It’s because we not only outsource much of our war materiel demands but also because most of the major contractors play games with their profits and keep them offshore, out of reach of the Internal Revenue Service.

Our industrial capacity and ability to make things has been decimated in favor of a nation who knows how to advertise and sell things.

Which brings us to the paradox:

While the government is urging fiscal responsibility in purchasing homes, obtaining loans, buying efficient cars and dealing with credit cards; urging people to save for retirement and a rainy day --- they are also hoping that we ignore such prudent advice and spend our last dollar for goods and services to boost our economy.

Three, our government’s leadership is relatively corrupt …

That is, today’s politicians pander to their political party and to the special interests who provide massive campaign funding and voter support. Not that this is not exploited out of self-interest by those organizations with a political agenda or want to tap the United States Treasury to fund their ventures.

And four, our government leaders have made a Faustian deal with the devil …

The have allowed public employee unions, as well as private sector unions, to drive up costs, reduce effectiveness and efficiency, and introduce more and more onerous work rules into government service. All to the detriment and expense of  “We the People.” And now that some public employee unions, notably the SEIU (Service Employees International Union), we are seeing that they are introducing a political agenda of Marxism which demands the destruction of our capitalist system in favor of a more totalitarian regime of ruling elites using Soviet-style “central planning” to govern individuals for the benefit of the “collective.”

What can be done …

We are at the crossroads, historically speaking, where our vote can determine the future of the United States.

And the choice is simple:

Restore our Constitutional Checks and Balances which prevents a one-party ruling elite

or

suffer the consequences of our inaction.

Again, there is little doubt in my mind that the democrats have become the party of Marxism and while the Republican Party has not shown major leadership, it is the only alternative to keeping our nation safe for its citizens.

We need to reverse some of the spending and toxic legislation which is slowly crippling our nation and placing us in jeopardy of seeing foreign sovereign nations influence our actions. Under this scenario, we are years away from losing our national identity, preeminence and perhaps our freedom.

We need to reverse the tide of creeping socialism by voting for republicans, not because they are more ethical, knowledgeable or likeable – but because they are our only bulwark against the loss of our freedoms.

You know the difference between good and evil. Now go out and do the right thing. For yourself, for your children, for your friends, neighbors and community. And above all, for your nation who is desperately crying out for your help.
