Americans are angry as President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have herded up the Democrat Party members on Capitol Hill like as a cowboy would round up a herd of cattle. These Democrat Party leaders have directed their Democrats on Capitol Hill in voting as instructed. These Democrat members respond to their leadership. Many new laws have been “crammed down (y)our throats” when these members have admitted they never read or even fully understood the legislation prior to voting.
President Obama and the radical “left-wing” Democrats are now genuinely concerned as political polls show many Democrats on Capitol Hill are within a little more than one month prior to losing elections on November 2. Political polls suggest the Republican Party may win enough seats in the Senate and Congress to capture partisan political control in both the Senate and the House.
It was in 1956, if I remember correctly, when Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) Communist Party Premier, Nikita Khrushchev, slammed his shoe on the podium at the United Nations while addressing the United States said these words, “We will bury you without firing a shot”.
You and I would have never dreamed that President Obama and the majority Democrat Party would become the responsible parties to bring America closer to the Communist Party! In April 2010, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) sued the Democrat Party for stealing their Platform. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2493181/posts
In an effort to show unity, the radical “left-wing” bases of the Democrat Party are planning a rally on October 2 on the Washington, DC Mall. Joining with more than 300 “left-wing” organizations include: International ANSWER, Code Pink, Communist Party USA, AFL-CIO, NAACP, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, SEIU, La Raza, Teachers Unions, International Socialist Organization, Planned Parenthood, the Rainbow Push Coalition, the Campaign for America's Future, environmentalists, antiwar activists, church and civil rights groups, union organizers, gay rights coalitions, U.S. Student Association.
This rally on the Mall in Washington, DC is for the “left-wing” organizations to contend with the Glenn Beck rally which included many Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party leaders on August 28, 2010. Democrat Party leaders continue to criticize anyone who wants to stop or control the out-of-control spending on Capitol Hill. Democrats on Capitol Hill continue to tax and spend. The Democrat Party has become the Never Under Taxed (NUT) Party.
A majority of Americans may continue to show anger regarding President Obama and the Capitol Hill Democrats on Capitol Hill for their unnecessary radical spending, a deteriorating economy, and for their supportive associations with radical “left-wing” organizations. On November 2, Americans are determined to “get even” with a majority on Capitol Hill by defeating left-wing Democrats.

“Taxed Enough Already” (TEA) is a huge group of average, middle income, and working Americans who believe taxpayers are Taxed Enough Already. Most of these associated with the TEA Party associate themselves to the Republican Party as most members of the GOP support lower taxes, less government, and more private investments for jobs.
Members of the Democrat Party are attempting to discourage supporters of the TEA Party as not being qualified. How wrong the Democrat Party is operating on this issue!
This General Election Year 2010, the Democrat Party obviously has made a decision to avoid ObamaCare as an issue to the electorate. Before, during, and after passage of ObamaCare, the political polls continued to say “NO” to ObamaCare which is damaging our current healthcare system. Before, and during the passage of ObamaCare, The Democrats on Capitol Hill continued to “cram ObamaCare down our throats”. Now, the political polls are calling for a reversal of ObamaCare legislation.
With these political polls in reversal of this legislation, Democrat Party members, on the campaign trail are remaining silent in support of ObamaCare.
The Democrat Party on Capitol Hill have additional radical ideas to “cram down (y)our throats” that are weakening our economy. The Democrat Party plans to continue on Socialist and/or Communist ideas in the 112th Congress:
1. Higher taxes: The Democrat Party supports additional taxes rather than promoting business investments to provide jobs for our increasing unemployed. Higher taxes may fracture a free and open economy resulting more to government jobs as General Motors now currently operates.
It is total irresponsibility for the Democrat Party majority on Capitol Hill Congress and Senate to leave Washington, D.C. this week prior to informing “pay departments” all across America how to pay employees.
2. Cap and Trade: The Democrat Party supports additional government requirements to businesses and individuals which are, again, crippling our economy. President Obama has confirmed the enormous escalating cost of energy.
3. One World Government: The Democrat Party supports “One World Government”. President Obama appealed the Arizona new “Illegal Immigration” law to the United Nations for their appraisal. Other Democrats have expressed their support of a “One World Government”.
4. More government: The Democrat Party supports additional government services to all, legal and/or illegal immigrants for free food, housing, education, healthcare, entertainment, and any other needs and desires. A free and open economy in the workplace expects those with abilities to help themselves, while protecting those with health failures and uncontrollable disastrous circumstances.
5. Less Constitutional freedoms: The Democrat Party supports a system that denies or impedes Constitutional rights as described in the Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America.
6. Internet Control: President Obama appointed an Internet “cyber Czar” to a position without the “Advice and Consent” as described by the US Senate. Now, Congress is seeking legislation to allow more Internet wiretaps. While the Democrats on Capitol Hill are saying this is for the FBI, I am very troubled at the White House and their political involvements.
7. Support of Labor Unions: The Democrat Party supports all Labor Unions as Labor Unions take their employees monthly fees and gives about 92% of their donations to Democrat Party candidates. While Labor Unions destroy private jobs in the workplace, new legislation with excessive import taxes may support Labor Unions and their demands but their actions could/would prevent another worldwide economic war with an even deepening recession.
This week, Senator Harry Reid is determined to “cram down (y)our throats” the passage of Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2009, S. 3194), more appropriately referred to as Police and Firefighters Monopoly Bargaining Bill for forcing Labor Union support. All of us support our Police and Firefighters. We do not support Labor Unions and their bosses.
In summary, the Democrat Party could correct all of these wrongs, but they have not and we should not expect these corrections in the near future. The Capitol Hill Democrats should inform their electorate that the TEA Party members and associates are screaming at the Democrat Party for out-or-control government spending.
President Obama and Democrats on Capitol Hill are out-of-control on a chart following down a road of Communism. In June 2010, the Communist Party sued the Democrat Party for stealing their Platform. http://thepeoplescube.com/current-truth/communists-sue-democratic-party-for-stealing-platform-t5149.html
The Democrat Party could take a lesson from Ayn Ryn, “There can be no compromise on basic principles. There can be no compromise on moral issues. There can be no compromise on matters of knowledge, of truth, of rational conviction”.

With little more than one month to go prior to our 2010 General Election, the arrogance of President Obama, Senate majority Leader Harry Reid, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continues. American taxpayers are asking if these three (3) Washington, DC Democrat Party leaders ever listen!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer have both now said they will not allow a vote to extend the GW Bush 2001 and 2001 tax reductions. On January 1, 2011, American taxpayers are just before receiving the highest tax increases in US history.
Top income tax rate will jump from 35% to 39.4%. The lowest income tax rates will increase from 10% to 15%. There are other brackets between the highest tax rates of 39.4 and the lowest tax rate of 15%.
As I have reported earlier, there are a number of employees in the White House and on Capitol Hill who owe a total of more than $10 Million taxes in default. How can it be that those who write, vote, and/or work at the expense of our taxpayers’ system, are some of the ones who evade taxes on a timely manner?
New Senate and Congress members were sworn in basically on January 6, 2009 with a few members later. President Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009. This Democrat Party majority seemed to have a radical agenda and have commanded a socialistic scheme on fiscal and social issues, with disregard to the American voters. Regardless of political polls, these left-wingers crammed their views through the legislative process with little contempt to Americans’ legal or political views. Even today, a majority Democrat Party are refusing to retain the GW Bust tax reductions of 2001 and 2003. President Obama and the 111th Congress have more deficit spending than all Congresses from the beginning in 1776 to the Ronald Reagan administration. After spending more than $1 Trillion of “Stimulus” and other “so-called” job projects, etc., America is economically bankrupt with no evidence of a recovering economy.
Now, with a little more than one month to go, many of these mostly Democrat Party liberals legislators are seeing political polls that show Americans need a change. What I am finding is that a majority of the electorate are firm to defeat each and every liberal Democrat Party member on Capitol Hill. As General Election day, November 2 gets closer and these liberal Democrats are facing many political losses, do not be surprised for a special session to renew the “GW Bush tax reductions”. The question then becomes: “Is it now too little and too late for the radical liberal Democrats on Capitol Hill to recover”?

Here we go again! The majority Democrat Party on Capitol Hill is trying to “cram down (y)our throats” new legislation, again. This is the Capitol Hill Democrat Party’s newest effort to overturn SCOTUS’ decision in allowing businesses, that provide new and expansion of jobs, to provide resources in the political process. Similarly, Labor Unions, which destroy jobs, are allowed to participate in the political process.
In planning, forming, and arranging laws, deliberation is always becoming, and always useful. -- James Wilson, Lectures on Law, 1791
This Democrat Party’s legislation is called the “Disclose Act” – S. 3628. As usual, it is difficult to understand the Democrat Party’s legislation by name, as the name is distorted in practice. In this legislation, the only “disclosure” is to prohibit businesses from donating in the political process. When will Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and the majority Democrat Party on Capitol Hill deny job killing Labor Unions from participating in the political process? This new legislation, S. 3628, exempts any “Disclosure” from Labor Unions.
Under Senator Schumer’s introduced S. 3628 legislation, approximately 80% of American businesses will be prohibited from participating in the election process, but the Democrat Party’s Labor Unions can operate as usual. The US House, under Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has already passed a comparable bill H.R. 5175 on June 24, 2010 by a YEA-219 to NAY-206 on Roll Call #391.
Some two (2) weeks ago, President Obama gave a speech on his decision to prohibit American businesses from participating in the political process. Obama allows his Labor Unions and their participation. Whether Americans have jobs or not, President Obama will protect Labor Unions and their activity with (y)our taxpayers’ money.
You may remember when President Obama holds economic conference meetings, Labor Union are invited, but business groups who represent jobs; Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), etc. are not invited.
During the 2008 election, Labor Unions provided over $74.5 Million, with 68.3 Million or 92% of their resources going to the Democrat Party. Labor Unions have already provided $6.5 Million for the 2010 Elections with $6 Million or 92% going to the Democrats.
Need worry! President Barack Obama, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-8) are taking (y)our taxpayers’ money and giving it to the Labor Unions. America may by financially bankrupt, but the team of Obama/Reid/Pelosi always find (y)our money for the Labor Unions.
While the majority Democrat Party “crammed down (y)our throats” to bailout GM and Chrysler with (y)our taxpayers’ loaned money, General Motors made an announcement that GM, which is now owned by the US Government, not the public sector, was going to donate (y)our loaned taxpayers’ money to the Democrat Party. GM has already donated $41,000 to various groups, with $36,000 going to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.
When will President Obama and the Capitol Hill team of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi start looking after the American workers to restore our economy and protect our Constitutional rights?

Obama/Reid/Pelosi team’s wasteful spending & limited Constitution freedoms devoid of a restoring economy
Many Americans are angry at Washington, DC and President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi team. Many believe that rather than fixing an economy, the majority Democrat Party team of Obama/Reid/Pelosi has further damaged our economy by throwing excessive amounts of taxpayers’ money, and restricted our Constitutional freedoms, rather than developing ideas of reducing government spending and lowering taxes. These two ideas could/would provide incentives for consumers and investors to correct the wrongs in our economy.
As former President Ronald Reagan said, “In the present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
Here is arguably five (5) very questionable, excessive spending programs that cost (y)our taxpayers, (y)our children, and their children lots of debt while limiting Constitutional freedoms.
These excessive spending programs and limited Constitutional rights are for each of you to evaluate the legislation and how (y)our North Carolina and South Carolina Democrat Party Congressmen are working so closely with the Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Why did the Obama/Reid/Pelosi team “cram down (y)our throats” --- H R 1- Stimulus -2009 ---YEA- 246 – NAY – 183 --- 13-Feb-2009 - 2:24 PM?
Why did the Obama/Reid/Pelosi “cram down (y)our throats” --- Omnibus Appropriations Act - 2009 - H R 1105 --- YEA - 245 - NAY 178 --- 25-Feb-2009 - 3:50 PM?
Why did the Obama/Reid/Pelosi “cram down (y)our throats” --- “Cap and Trade” --- American Clean Energy and Security Act - H R 2454 --- YEA 219 – NAY -212 --- 26-Jun-2009 - 7:17 PM?
Why did the Obama/Reid/Pelosi “cram down (y)our throats” --- H.R. 4173 – Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act --- House Vote #968 in 2009 --- YEA - 223 – NAY - 202 Nays --- Dec 11, 2009 2:28PM?
Why did the Obama/Reid/Pelosi “cram down (y)our throats” --- “ObamaCare” --- H R 3590 – YEA – 219 – AY 212 --- 21-Mar-2010 - 10:49 PM?
Summary: Comparing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA-8) 100% as a rating with other NC and SC Democrat Party members with the Obama/Reid/Pelosi Democrat Party team, compare other Congressmen. These results will confirm that NC Democrat Party Congressmen are solidly supporting the Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
The following report is based on the Washington Post, US Congress, Votes Database. This report will confirm that majority party Democrats, on average, have supported the Democrat Party 92.2% of the time.
This report will confirm that minority party Republicans, on average, have supported the Republican Party 90.6% of the time, and tenaciously opposed to the legislation of the majority Democrat Party.
If you support these five (5) above listed legislations as voted on, you should continue to support your current Democrat Party Congressmen. If you oppose these five (5) above listed legislations as voted on, you may choose to look at supporting a different candidate for US Congress.
Speaker of the House: Nancy Pelosi (CA-8) 100% rating with the Obama/Reid/Pelosi Democrat Party team.
North Carolina – Democrats – US Congress:
G. K. Butterfield (D-NC-1) – 97% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Bob Etheridge (D-NC-2) - 97.6% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
David Price (D-NC-4) – 98.9% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Mike McIntyre (D-NC-7) 90.7% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Larry Kissell (D-NC-8) 96.4% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Heath Shuler (D-NC-11) 84% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Mel Watt (D-NC-12) 97.1% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Brad Miller (D-NC-13) 98.9% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
South Carolina – Democrats – US Congress:
John Spratt (D-SC-5) 98.1% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.
Jim Clyburn (D-SC-6) 98.5% rating with the Democrat Party, Obama/Reid/Pelosi team.

The Never Under Taxed (NUT) Party led by President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Speaker of the House Nance Pelosi, are on a mission to criticize and discredit the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party. The Obama/Reid/Pelosi NUT Party has spent over $1 Trillion of Americans’ borrowed tax money on Obama’s White House and Capitol Hill Democrat Party economic plan to restore our failing economy.
NUT Party members and their associates are made up of Americans who believe the government should provide more and more services to its’ citizens, requiring the taxpayers to pay the bills and/or put the bills on taxpayers’ bills or their credit, for taxpayers to pay later. NUT Party members and their associates support a failing Social Security program, a deteriorating Medicare system, a “cram down (y)our throats” ObamaCare healthcare system, an out-of-control Attorney General’s Office who sues anyone whom he disagrees with regardless of our US Constitution and/or US Code, etc. These legislators never worry about the fiscal and/or social issues cost; just add it to the national debt for taxpayers, their children, and their children, etc., as they are required to pay.
TEA Party members and/or associates are made up primarily of working, middle-income Americans who are exhausted at legislators “ripping off” the American taxpayers. TEA Party members and/or associates are seeing legislators, who observe that our government with taxpayers’ funds, are willing to give everything to everyone at any time just for their votes on election days. TEA Party members and/or associates want smaller government, lesser services, reducing deficits, and smaller taxes. TEA Party members and/or associates are delighted to pay required taxes for needed services and needs. TEA Party members and/or associates want the opportunity to become more financially better off by working harder and smarter.
Why does President Obama and other members of the Capitol Hill Reid/Pelosi NUT Party allow many of their own teams to evade the taxes as written by these same legislators and required to pay by law? Capitol Hill’s employees’ overdue taxes debt is now at $9.3 Million.
The NUT Party members and/or associates should spend less efforts on criticizing and discrediting all members of the TEA Party and concentrating on lower taxes so as Americans will invest more of their resources into “new jobs” and/or “expanding existing jobs” for those ambitious hard working Americans.
Obama/Reid/Pelosi’s NUT Party economic plan has failed. Under the NUT Party and their associates, their policy is that taxpayers are “Never Under Taxed”. Their options are to criticize and discredit TEA Party members and/or their associates so as to distract their own failing economic policies. President Obama and the Capitol Hill Democrats are searching for any issue that will bond. The American electorate is awake and challenging the Obama/Reid/Pelosi on their failures. For now, the Obama/Reid/Pelosi team’s option is to criticize and discredit any and all TEA Party members and/or their associates’. Their erroneous allegations are settling down with whale manure on the bottom of the ocean.

Political greed among some candidates is overwhelmed with the rare thought of losing. To a deafening scream, American political polls have been sending a thunderous warning of wasteful spending for an entire year to President Obama and the radical liberal Democrat Party. These leaders continue to ignore these warnings to control government spending. Create jobs! Stop the misuse of (y)our taxpayers’ funds.
In this 2010 election season, there is excitement in the air with many Conservative candidates winning in primaries and expected continuation with wins into the 2010 General Election. Republicans, Independents, and a few Democrats are supporting Conservative candidates.
In South Carolina's 4th Congressional District Primary Election, Spartanburg County Conservative GOP Solicitor Trey Gowdy defeated moderate to liberal incumbent Bob Inglis. Conservative GOP nominee Trey Gowdy will face Democrat Paul Corden (D).
Delaware Conservative Christine O'Donnell won her nomination as a candidate for US Senate in defeating probably the most liberal Republican Party member in the US House, Rep. Mike Castle. Conservative GOP nominee Christine O'Donnell will face Democrat Chris Coons.
Conservative candidate Rand Paul shocked the Kentucky Republican Party leadership in defeating Kentucky’s Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Conservative GOP nominee Rand Paul will face Democrat Jack Conway.
Conservative Mike Lee unseated moderate incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett at the Utah State GOP Convention. Conservative GOP nominee Mike Lee will face Democrat Sam Granato. Sen. Bennett first suggested he may run as an Independent.
Nevada’s former Conservative Assemblywoman, Sharron Angle, defeated Nevada’s former GOP State Senator Sue Lowden, and small business owner, Danny Tarkanian, for US Senate. Conservative GOP nominee Angel will face incumbent Democrat Sen. Harry Reid
Florida’s Conservative GOP Speaker of the House, Marco Rubio, defeated very moderate (doesn’t know what he stands for) Governor Charlie Crist for US Senate. Crist, after trailing so far behind Marco Rubio in the political polls, switched his voter’s registration to continue his campaign with the Independent Party. Conservative GOP nominee Marco Rubio will face Independent Party Charlie Crist and Democrat Kendrick Meek.
In Alaska, GOP Conservative candidate Joe Miller defeated moderate Senator Lisa Murkowski. Sen. Murkowski has announced she is seeking to be re-elected with a write-in campaign. Conservative GOP nominee Joe Miller will face Democrat Scott McAdams and write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski.
Conservative New Hampshire State Attorney General, Kelly Ayotte, defeated attorney Ovide Lamontagne for the Republican Senate nomination.
Conservative GOP nominee, Kelly Ayotte, will face Rep. Paul Hodes (D) in the race to replace retiring Sen. Judd Gregg (R).
There are so many other Conservative candidate victories across America with an awakening as to how President Obama and the majority Democrat Party members on Capitol Hill are destroying our fiscal and social ideals of today. Why should our moderate to liberal candidate/members on Capitol Hill even question the electorate?
President Obama and the Reid/Pelosi team on Capitol Hill have ignored America’s political polls. On November 2, America’s voters will respond and overpower the Democrat Party. The electorate is just before making probably the largest exchange ever on Capitol Hill. President Obama and the majority Democrats on Capitol Hill will then hear Americans respond, “Can you hear me now? Never mind! Conservatives are on the way! Yes, we can!”
Saturday, September 18, 2010
The radical left-wing agenda continues. General Election November 2, 2010 is rapidly approaching. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and other Capitol Hill Democrats; all with President Obama’s support, have new plans of legislation to award “amnesty” for “illegal immigrants”. Next week, Sen. Reid will present his plan to the US Senate. Obama and the Democrat Party’s agenda is to grant “illegal immigrants” the “right to vote” in the November 2, 2010 election.
Sen. Reid and Capitol Hill Democrats newer “political corruption” is that Sen. Reid may attach his “amnesty” amendment to the Military budget which would require the Conservatives to vote against the Military budget or support “amnesty” for “illegal immigrants”. As psychoanalysis Karen Horney once said, “Rationalization may be defined as self-deception by reasoning”.
The real issue in opposing “Illegal immigrants” is the associated criminality that is coming to America. Rather than ascertaining a “Green Card” from their home government agency, “illegal immigrants” come to America and purchase a fraudulent Social Security card. With that illegal SS Card, he/she then obtains another “ID” such as a “Driver Operator’s License” from a state which issues “Driver Operator’s License” to illegal immigrants. With the illegal SS card and a state issued ID and/or Driver Operator’s License, they go see an employer for a job.
With the new job, they fill out the necessary tax forms and claim upwards of seven (7) dependents when, in fact, the employee may be a single dependent. This way, the employee pays in little to no state and/or federal taxes. When caught, they just move on to another employer and/or purchase another Social Security Card, etc., as is necessary.
Under the current system, “illegal immigrants” are able to use and abuse our hospitals, our other medical facilities, our Social Services, our public schools, etc., all at the expense of Americans taxpayers. These added costs prevent our legal citizens from receiving their own adequate needs and services.
Many of us have served, and/or are currently serving, in the US Military to protect our American Flag, our Constitution, and the freedoms within. Over the history of our great nation’s history, over 600,000 American soldiers have given their own life in the wars for these liberties. Americans support “legal immigration”. Americans oppose “illegal immigration”.
Under the President Obama, Sen. Reid, and other Capitol Hill Democrats plan, they are playing amnesty for illegal immigration as a game of Monopoly. In the game of Monopoly, you pay $200.00 to get out of jail. Under the newly presented legislation, and rather than requiring “illegal immigrants” to go through the current system to obtain citizenship, President Obama and the Capitol Hill Democrats are attempting to “present” citizenship to criminals.
All political polls show a large majority of Americans in support the Arizona’s new SB 1070. This new Arizona law SB 1070 is to control and/or stop the criminal activity associated with “illegal immigration”. Under the President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder’s opposing acknowledged political and legal views, terrorists from known terrorists’ nations may be able to walk freely within (y)our own communities.
Will President Obama and the Capitol Hill Democrat Party continue their plan to “cram illegal immigration down (y)our throats” as they accomplished with ObamaCare? American’s must say “NO” to “amnesty” in lieu of “illegal immigration”.
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
As we close out the 2010 Primary season and move into the 2010 General Election on November 2, the Democrats, Republicans, and other political parties have made their preferences. The prominent issue of the day is a deteriorating economy. President Obama and the majority Democrat Party on Capitol Hill is offering and passing legislation that is being rejected.
With their governing control since January 2009, the majority Democrat Party has passed legislation in difference to the requests of Americans. The Democrat Party on Capitol Hill supported the radical socialistic ideals as instituted by President Obama. During many hearings for originating new legislation, the Republican Party offered amendments as supported by America’s taxpayers. Democrat leaders suggested that their fellow Democrats defeat GOP amendments in committees and on the floor of the House and US Senate.
Majority Democrats on Capitol Hill has “crammed down our throats” ObamaCare while American were saying “NO”. Americans are witnessing premium increases of their own healthcare costs as reflected by ObamaCare.
Democrats on Capitol Hill passed a $787 Billion “stimulus” bill that Americans were told was critical for immediate passage to create jobs. Since passage, unemployment has increased, rather than decreasing.
Many “stimulus” projects passed were directed to “falsely” listed zip codes. In summary, most of the projects went to Labor Unions only as repayment by Democrats to Unions for their political support.
Majority Democrats on Capitol Hill passed “Cap and Trade” legislation that even President Obama said would dramatically increase electrical energy costs to businesses and consumers.
Five (5) simple solutions for reversing a deteriorating economy:
1. Pass legislation reducing Americans’ tax burdens and individual freedoms and for offering tax incentives for new and/or expanding businesses for jobs.
2. Reverse ObamaCare legislation, returning America back to the very best healthcare system in the world; thus, lowering consumer costs.
3. Pass “tort” legislation to control cost in healthcare jury awards and settlements in questionable lawsuits.
4. Drill, capture, and refine American oil to reduce oil, gasoline, and natural gas costs for the America’s businesses and consumers. This will help reduce the national addiction of more than $302 Trillion imported oil costs paid to foreign suppliers. This would also reduce the $13.4 Trillion national debt. Why does the majority Democrat Party prohibit Americans from drilling for our own energy resources, in lieu of purchasing oil from Islamic Muslim nations?
5. Stop all “Cap and Trade” legislation that will transfer control from American freedoms to government bureaucrats with additional personal cost.
There are other “test and proven” ideas to restore our nation’s economy. Those of the Tax Enough Already (TEA) Party understand. Members of the “TEA” Party are Conservative in political philosophy and mostly middle class Americans. Many have never been actively involved in the political process. They, as most Americans, are fed up with the liberals on Capitol Hill who spend without concern as to taxpayers’ cost. They truly believe they are Taxed Enough Already”. As TEA Party candidates roll on with victories, America’s electorate is showing more support of TEA policies.

America was established by our forefathers under our Constitution for an open free society. Jobs are created by men and women who are willing to invest their resources into industry for a better society: men and/or women becoming employers. With these investments, jobs are created and/or expanded allowing others to obtain a new(er) job with additional pay, better working conditions, and/or enhanced benefits.
This continuing competitiveness between employers and employees is a balance that keeps America growing economically while providing a better lifestyle for employee workers. As this example of competitiveness, the employer is required to increase the employee’s pay and/or benefits, and/or better working conditions, or lose the employee to another employer’s competitor.
Employer/employee problems begin when Unions arrive in businesses promising employees’ higher pay and/or better working conditions and/or added benefits. Employers and employees are always seeking to improve themselves; however, there are occasions when businesses/employers reach a time when employees’ demands exceed product costs and labor costs, thus leading to dwindling profits. Often, Labor Unions, in representing the employees, refuse to work out economic differences with employers, hence requiring businesses to close, leaving all employees to lose their jobs.
Over the years, liberal legislators on Capitol Hill and in states’ General Legislatures have passed legislation which provides the power of Unions over the employers. Employers are prohibited from hiring new employees to fill a position opened, even when a Union member went on strike and walked out.
Are Americans too spoiled to understand that the men and women of this great nation are those who invest their resources to create jobs? When was the last time you heard of a financially broke person who opened a new business creating jobs?
In looking into the Holy Bible: Matthews 25: 14-30, God illustrates how He gives talents to those who take their talents to expand additional talents. All do not accept the talents to grow with.
Labor Unions throughout America have forced many businesses to close. For their over-excessive demands, Labor Unions must be legislatively controlled, or America will no longer be competitive at all in the marketplace. America is near to becoming number two (2) or, perhaps, number three (3) economically throughout the world. Americans deserves better and must continue to be the world’s number one (1) economic nation.
Unions must understand that men and women in America must have resources to become employers in providing jobs for employees. This is what has made America the most economic nation on earth.
Does America decide on the Republican Party and give tax incentives to those who have resources to create jobs?
Does America decide on the Democrat Party to deny tax incentives to those who have resources and who, otherwise, lack the tax incentives to create jobs?
The later decision is for the Democrats on Capitol Hill to destroy an open and free economy while moving America closer toward a Socialistic government?
As author Napoleon Hill said, “It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed”.

While in basic training in the US Army, one of the first lessons is to march in step. The 111th Congress and the newly elected US Senate were sworn into office in January 2009 and Democrat Party leadership on Capitol Hill has led their members down, perhaps, a political road of no return.
President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Speaker of the House Nancy Polosi have kept the Democrat Party members in line to support legislation as ordered.
Capitol Hill Democrats passed ObamaCare while political polls were saying “NO. Many Republican amendments were offered in committee hearings; however, the majority Democrat Party leadership asked their fellow Democrats to defeat all GOP amendments, and usually they did.
Often, Obama would say that Republicans were not going across the aisle to participate with the majority Democrats. The Republicans were refusing to support legislation that a majority of Americans were saying “NO” to this new law. Under the Obama, Reid, and Pelosi team leadership, Democrat Party members usually would never cross the aisle in support of more Conservative amendments offered by Republican Party members.
No Democrat Party member in Congress, Vote #165, or the Senate, Vote #396, on Capitol Hill would say they had read the legislation that each voted for prior to passage. All Republican Party members in the House voted “NO” on this legislation.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, "But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what is in it."
We are now approaching General Election 2010 on November 2, and the political polls are still in opposition to the ObamaCare legislation that the majority Democrat Party “crammed down (y)our throats”.
With a majority of Americans still in opposition to ObamaCare, Democrats are not campaigning based on ObamaCare as they “forced” on Americans, and other wasteful worsening stimulus economic expenditures at taxpayers’ expense. Democrat Party’s “stimulus” appears to have been legislation feeding the troughs of the Unions, and other allegations of fraud; again, at taxpayers’ expense. The Obama, Reid, Pelosi plan of economic recovery is deteriorating. High rates of unemployment remain unacceptable.
The majority Democrat Party leaders Obama, Reid, and Pelosi team have kept Democrat members on Capitol Hill firmly in their line voting politically, just as a Platoon Sergeant would keep new recruits in line committed to military policy as ordered.
Democrats on Capitol Hill are now becoming Obama’s vanishing support; not to be identified in the same setting. For their 111th, Congressional action, the majority Democrats on Capitol Hill must now face a very angry American electorate.

President Obama and/or members of his administration are misleading Americans and he shifts our nation from our Constitution, US Code, and fiscal and social Judeo-Christian values.
1. During the November 8, 2008 General Election, and after video evidence, the Bush Administration Justice Department filed charges against Black Panthers in Pennsylvania for intimidating members of the electorate attempting to vote. The US Justice Department won the case by default. Suddenly, and even with an automatic win and with no explanation, AG Holder dismissed the case.
2. Arizona’s General Assemble passed a new law, SB1070, on illegal immigration for the purpose of controlling out-of-control criminal activity associated with illegal immigration. ICE Director John Morton refuses to uphold the law to deport illegal immigrants as required by Arizona law and US Code. AG Holder filed a lawsuit against Arizona although SB1070 was in compliance with our Constitution, Article X. A US District Judge upheld parts of the Arizona law SB1070. President Obama appealed the US District Court case to the United Nations. Obama is now governing under the UN as if the UN is superior to America’s state and federal judiciary?
3. AG Holder has decided to discontinue the prosecution against USS Cole bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashis who killed 17 Americans and injured 39 others.
4. Now AG Holder is suing Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio who is upholding the Arizona laws and US Code.
5. In two other incidents, US Senatorial nominee Joe Sestak (D-PA) and Colorado US Senatorial nominee Andrew Romanoff (D)-CO) allegedly were offered jobs in the Obama administration in lieu of dropping their candidacies for US Senate. AG Holder has not ordered any investigation.
6. Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, while serving as a member of Congress (D-IL-5), lived rent-free, with a BP adviser, while residing in Washington, DC. His rent-free housing would exceed Federal Election laws? Even today, Obama praises Rahm Emanuel. Again, AG Holder has not ordered any investigation.
7. Review the government-subsidized group ACORN and all of their alleged illegal activity from voter fraud mortgage counseling, to illegal underage sex. ACORN’s organizations serve President Obama and the Democrat Party; much primarily paid for with taxpayers’ money. Again, AG Holder has not ordered any investigation.
8. Other allegations include Obama’s nominees who failed to pay their own taxes. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Tom Daschle, Obama’s first HHS nominee, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, US Trade Representative Ron Kirk, and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. All Americans are usually penalized for not paying their taxes. In the Obama Administration, they are flaunted. Again, AG Holder has not ordered any investigation.
Based on President Obama and the majority Democrat Party’s out-of-control spending, you may never perceive America is in a recession. Whether it be Obama’s honoring our Constitution and US Code, President Obama shows no respect for the law. Additionally, his family has spent more of taxpayers’ money for vacations, than any other before. Again, AG Holder has not ordered any investigation. Obama’s administration is possibly the most corrupt of all times. Will America reject President Obama’s proposals and the majority Democrat Party on November 2, 2010?

There seems to be representation or perhaps, misrepresentation of President Obama and the majority Democrats on Capitol Hill and their political philosophy and values, or lack thereof, based on our Constitutional values.
Here is what Thomas Jefferson said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have.”
Now, may I present to President Obama and the liberal majority Democrat Party members on Capitol Hill a Cato quote by John Trenchard and Thomas Gordon. It exemplifies a short lesson on life, liberty, and common sense economics?
Cato Quote: "By Liberty I understand the Power which every Man has over his own Actions, and his Right to enjoy the Fruits of his Labour, Art, and Industry, as far as by it he hurts not the Society, or any Members of it, by taking from any Member, or by hindering him from enjoying what he himself enjoys. The Fruits of a Man's honest Industry are the just Rewards of it, ascertained to him by natural and eternal Equity, as is his Title to use them in the Manner which he thinks fit: And thus, with the above Limitations, every Man is sole Lord and Arbitrer of his own private Actions and Property."
By: John Trenchard (1662-1723) & Thomas Gordon (169?-1750)
Source: Letter 62 (1722) of Cato's Letters (1720-1723), quoted by Ronald Hamowy, "Cato's Letters, John Locke, and the Republican Paradigm", in Edward J. Harpham (Ed.), John Locke's Two Treatises of Government: New Interpretations (Lawrence: University Press of Kansas, 1992), p. 157. http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quote_blog/Cato.Quote.5EED
In summary, is it that President Obama and the majority Democrat Party members on Capitol Hill just do not know, do not care, or are they just ignoring our American History and our founding fathers?
Life, liberty, and common sense economics is what America, Judeo-Christian values, and our Constitution is all about.

Wake up President Obama. While you may be blinded by your own political viewpoints, Americans are aware of your uncertainties. America is in a recession; however, Obama is in the campaign cycle rather than governing to create and/or expand new jobs. On each political stop, Obama continues to blame President GW Bush for today’s economic problem. Obama appears to have no tried and proven effective remedies. Obama fails to give Bush any credit for his success in the past.
There is much evidence of wasteful spending under the President Obama and majority Democrat Party plan on Capitol Hill of Americans’ taxpayers’ fund on the $870 Billion ‘stimulus’ and other so-called bailouts and jobs’ bills. Included in the $870 Billion stimulus, the Obama administration spent some funds to purchase and install signs noting a project as part of the ‘stimulus’. Americans needs jobs, not signs.
Obama is now proposing an additional $50 Billion in infrastructure; on 150,000 of new roads. Please, Mr. President, if my memory serves me correctly, you and your majority Democrats on Capitol Hill told us a majority of the $870 Billion was for infrastructure. Again, please Mr. President, show us where the earlier infrastructure funds went paying for new roads. How much debt are you Mr. President, and the Democrat Party, willing to place on the American taxpayers, their children, and their children?
Obama’s concern is to make sure these projects go to the Unions, at taxpayers’ expense. Obama’s proposed jobs are temporary; America needs new and expanding permanent jobs.
Based on a report from LubbockOnline.com “Much of the $1 trillion in stimulus money that has been spent has gone to unions and union jobs. Obama is keeping more than half of the original stimulus money in reserve to buy votes for himself and other Democrats in 2012.”
Tax cuts and/or other incentives in the private sector for businesses could/would create new and expanding jobs.
American taxpayers may create a new committee, “Democrats Stop Unions’ Career Killing” (Democrats SUCK), against Obama and the most radical liberal spending majority Democrat Party ever on Capitol Hill.
Has America reached a point when we should refer to President Obama as “Baby Barry”? Obama’s most interest is to fuel the Unions with taxpayers’ funding, as he continues to accept no responsibility for his failing economy decision making process.

Labor Day 2010 is here. Labor Day is a federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September of each year. Labor Day is usually celebrated as the end of summer for working men and women. This year may be different with much higher than normal unemployed Americans.
This year, President Obama and the majority Democrat Party on Capitol Hill passed ObamaCare, although Americans said ‘NO’ to this legislation. President Obama and the majority Democrat Party merely decided to dispel all political polls and “cram ObamaCare down (y)our throats”. Many issues which Americans challenged the Democrat Party with on ObamaCare legislation, but denied by Democrat Party leaders, are now determined to be incorporated within this law.
Last year, President Obama and the majority Capitol Hill Democrat Party wrote and passed an $870 Billion “Stimulus” bill to “save or create jobs”; reversing unemployment. The results are that unemployment went up and many of the recipients were Labor Unions and/or many undefined fraudulent job creations. Under Obama and the Democrat Party plans as legislated, Labor Unions win while the taxpayers lose. Now, America is in deeper financial despair with no promising economic improvements to our national wealth.
Unemployment numbers of American rose to 9.6% in August 2010 as there is more labor availability than jobs’. Over the last four (4) decades, organized labor has been demanding and receiving higher wages and more benefits. These expansions of rising demands have reached a point in time where many American employers have become unable to compete in the world market economy. With the more and increasing demands, employers have been required to relocate to other areas across America, or perhaps another country, where less demands are required. In lieu of these transfers, employers have been forced to close the businesses, leaving the employees without a job. Manufacturing jobs are evaporating from our economy and it appears labor union leaders do not even care.
As Thomas Jefferson said,"[A] wise and frugal government ... shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rejected the decision to depose President Zelaya. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/07/AR2009070702174.htm
As Honduras was protecting its Democracy, President Zelaya surrounded himself with some of his OAS friends like Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortego, and of course Hillary Clinton.
In a new election on Nov. 29, 2009, Porfirio Lobo was elected new President of Honduras overwhelmingly over the election of candidate and previously ousted President Zelaya.
A UN group concluded that the removal of President Manuel Zelaya, "was constitutional” under the laws of their country.
I correlate this issue to illustrate how President Obama and Hillary Clinton are so erroneous in their decision making process.
Arizona’s newly enacted SB1070 is to stop and/or control the illegal immigration and the criminal activity associated within. President Obama and AG Holder filed a lawsuit challenging the new law. US District Judge Susan Bolton, in a somewhat split decision, upheld part of the law and threw out part of the law. Arizona appealed Judge Bolton’s decision to throw out portions of the law.
President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton referred/appealed the legislation to the United Nations U.N. Human Rights Council for ‘review’. Where is the main stream on this issue?
President Obama and Hillary Clinton must understand that America is under the US Constitution and US Code, both of which the Obama administration needs to learn and follow themselves. Additionally, Arizona’s newly enacted law SB1070 is in compliance with Article X of the Constitution. President Obama and Hillary Clinton must further understand that Americans overwhelmingly support our Constitution and rejects any United Nations’ New World Order.
Where is the leadership of the Democrat Party on Capitol Hill and/or anywhere else in America? Does the silence of the Democrat Party indicate their support of President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they move our nation toward a UN New World Order?
