I have listened to President Obama’s address to the nation. I have heard House Majority Leader Boehner’s response. I have heard what Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have said.


That is they represent the “elite” ruling class -- caring more about themselves, gaining and maintaining political power, prestige and personal profits – and supporting their special interest friends to insure the continuing flow of campaign funds, perks, privileges and post-office employment for themselves, their family and special friends then they do about America or her citizens.


  • Pandering to the special interests for money.
  • Pandering to the entitlement culture and minorities for votes.
  • Pandering to the unions for campaign workers who are not afraid of getting their hands dirty. 

The biggest lie of all: there is a budgetary crisis and it can only be solved by raising the debt ceiling …

First, the budget crisis was precipitated by the democrats who have done virtually nothing about the deficit or the debt for months. Obama has shown no leadership and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid do not seem to understand the word budget.

Second, the republicans are equally as bad because they were not loudly complaining about the very same issue while they were collecting 45% of the pork.

Third, Obama and the Congress have already pumped trillions into budgets since he took office – and it is THIS baseline that they are using to decide on a “baseline” for budget negotiations.

And fourth, those who claim that the United States will not pay their just debts, support Medicare, Medicaid, the Military and other critical services  are outright liars. The United States has income – it just needs to be prioritized to critical needs. Funding for the Departments of Agriculture, Energy and Education could be severely reduced with almost no notice – except by those plundering the system. HUD, doling out government largess to key political districts could be cut back without a ripple – again, with little or no notice – except by those plundering the system.

The second biggest lie, of course, is that the politicians are trying to solve this catastrophic problem …

What problem – the one of their own making? The one where they kicked the can down the road time-after-time while the spending became even more outrageous.

Are we really to believe that the ratings agencies, Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s even knows what they are doing. They corrupted and bungled the ratings of derivatives so badly that the contagion of junk securities was allowed to infect all of the nation – actually all of the world. Instead of letting them dictate the credit practices of the United States, why not investigate, prosecute and jail all of those people involved in producing ratings which materially damaged the United States economy.

Are we going to continually be whipsawed between faux crises by the politicians and an equally corrupt mainstream media – only to provide cover for promoting their toxic ideology and looting the taxpayer’s treasury.

Bottom line …

The politicians in both parties, with few exceptions, are self-serving and corrupt.

The books are cooked and there is little or no time to actually put together an outline of  a comprehensive spending plan, translate it into legislative language, have it “scored” by the Congressional Budget Office and offer it up for a vote. So what these corrupt politicians will do is provide a broad proposal – and then complete the dirty deed behind closed doors where these cockroaches normally live. With the real legislation being 2000+ pages, written by lawyers in unintelligible language and then dropped on legislators to read and understand in a short timeframe. All guaranteed to make sure that no one really reads the bill until it is passed into law.

Nancy Pelosi:  "We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It"

In her own words …

We need to take back our government and throw the dishonest bums out of office; reminding them they are temporary employees working on behalf of “we the people.”

We need to use citizen-imposed term limits by not voting for the incumbent.

We have to be smart enough to make sure those receiving entitlements do not continue to support the party which promises them the most.

We have to elect public officials who respect the Constitution, not attempt to twist it to support their toxic socialist ideology and permit foreign-born people to serve as the President of the United States.

Want to see some particularly egregious examples?

Republican Orrin Hatch tries to allow foreign-born citizens to serve as the President of the United States …

On July 10, 2003, Orrin Hatch (R-UT), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, proposed legislation known as the “Equal Opportunity to Govern Amendment.”

The text of the amendment reads as follows:

“Section 1. A person who is a citizen of the United States, who has been for 20 years a citizen of the United States, and who is otherwise eligible to the Office of President, is not ineligible to that Office by reason of not being a native born citizen of the United States.”

“Section 2. This article shall not take effect unless it has been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States not later than 7 years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress.” <Source>

  • June 11, 2003, Rep. Vic Snyder, D-Ark., brought HJR 59. It was intended to “permit persons who are not natural born citizens of the United States, but who have been citizens of the United States for at least 35 years, to be eligible to hold the offices of president and vice president.”
  • Sept. 3, 2003, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., brought HJR67, which would have done the same as Snyder’s, only the requirement to be a citizen was lowered to 20 years.
  • Feb. 25, 2004, Sen. Don Nickles, R-Okla., brought S.B. 2128 to “try to counter the growing Democrat onslaught aimed at removing the natural born citizen requirement.” But it defined NBC as someone who was born in and is subject to the United States,” which was not the understanding of the framers of the Constitution.
  • Sept. 15, 2004, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., brought HJR 104, “to make eligible for the office of president a person who is not a natural born citizen of the United States but has been a United States citizen for at least 20 years.
  • Jan. 4, 2005, Conyers, D-Mich., HJR2, the same as Rohrabacher’s.
  • Feb. 1, 2005, HJR15, Rohrabacher, to require only 20 years citizenship to be eligible for the office of president.
  • April 14, 2005, Snyder, HJR42, requiring 35 years’ citizenship.
  • Feb. 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., tried to attach to SB 2678, Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act, an amendment clarifying what “natural-born citizen” includes. Obama and then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., were sponsors. <Source>
  • And you wonder why both parties are afraid to check Obama’s credentials …

    The democrats certified, under penalty of perjury, that Obama met the eligibility requirements for the Presidency in each of the 50 states in order to have his name placed on the ballot.

    Even if his birth certificate is legitimate, that does not explain alleged other alleged  issues involving his social security number, how he traveled abroad on his or his parent’s passport; how he qualified for a scholarship for foreign-born students while at Occidental College.

    We need to stop this corruption NOW! We need to vote them all out of office – no more treating political parties like sports teams and our elected officials as special people above the law.

    Until 2012 … tell your family, friends, colleagues – what is happening in the United States and why we are sliding downhill into European-style socialism while politicians and their special-interest friends plunder our nation’s treasury.

    And then in 2012 get out the vote, offer to take people to the polls.

    There is no going back this time. Not if you want to live in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave
