House cleaning is like stringing beads with no knot at the end of the thread.

What happened???

This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be - please read
it!!


          The article below is completely neutral, ...not anti
republican or democrat.

          Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinal has
hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in
the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgements made
that impact each one of us every day.

         

          545 vs. 300,000,000

EVERY CITIZEN NEEDS TO READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS JOURNALIST
SAYS IN THIS MESSAGE.  READ IT AND THEN REALLY THINK ABOUT OUR CURRENT
POLITICAL DEBACLE.

          Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.

          545 PEOPLE--By Charlie Reese

          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 , 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.

          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 each of  them out of office and clean up their
mess!

What you do think should be done?
       
The following might be funny if it weren't so  true.

          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

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.

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