“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government” Thomas Jefferson

|The Girl Who Lived Behind
The quiet girl who lived behind
Her spirit un-trapped from flesh and bone
The cut was quick, the blade was swift
That left her born an unpleasant sight
The dog she loved had been recent put away
At an empty thought, the joke of life
The shackles, bondage had slipped away
And had wept that faultless night
The door had closed, I simply had to go
Disturbed I found her birthright curse
And I in shame did in wild confusion slink away
A friend is all I need, nothing else
Simply to say she’d passed and gone her way

Every 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 Political Debacle.

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.
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 cannot 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, it’s because they want them in IRAQ.
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.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
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:
Tax his land,
Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge=20Tax
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!!!
|President Obama just completed the UNHOLY and ANTI-AMERICAN TRIFECTA:* 1st president in 110 years to miss the annual Army-Navy Football Game.* 1st president not to attend any Christmas religious observance.
* 1st president to stay on vacation after a terrorist attack.
Add to that the first President not to stay in Washington for Christmas for the last 20 years. Past Presidents didn’t leave Washington for Christmas vacation until after Christmas. This was done so the staff (Secret Service, Air Force One Crew, Limousine transport, Presidential advancing logistics, etc.) could be with their families for Christmas.
