    Worthy of your time and attention regardless of your Party Affiliation

    545 PEOPLE
    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

    Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

    Have you ever wondered why, 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, an d nine Supreme Court justices 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 promis es, 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.

    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.&n bsp; 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 all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    God Bless us all!

    Lucky, You are correct! We need to to clean house. Have you ever noticed how a freshman Congressman gets in office and has some really good ideas then they just fade into the woodwork. What causes it? The corrupt system in place, thats what. Until we get term limits it isn't going to stop. You have the Ted Kennedy"s, Shumers's, Pelosi"s et al firmly entrenched taking all kinds of lobby money only working for the special interests. Make lobbying illegal, 8 year term limits, and don't allow a Lawyer within 50 miles of the Capital Building. Until the American people lose the apathy and vote them all out it isn't going to change. I can't believe that with this country in such poor financial shape we have them arguing over what else they can "tack" on to the back of that bill. "Well I'll vote for it if you give my guys a few hundred million" mentality. They need to be hung up by the heels and beaten. When will America learn? I say " If Your IN Your Out". I'll get off my soap box now.

    Too many people think you have to vote for one or the other of "Them".

    I vote Libertarian where possible, against incumbents all the time (except my friend the state rep) and this time I will depart from tradition.

    I think the Arab/Moslem half white pretender to the throne is dangerous. More than most people realize.

    Wm. Proxmire was one of the good ones. I used to vote for him.

    Not enough people could shed their complacency the last few decades to see how we were duped. HOw could pusbag Teddy get re-elected year after year?

    Let's get the threat out of the way, otherwise I agree.

    Good Fed description, most think it's part of the Gov.
