Do you remember when Tom Cruise said, “Show Me The Money” in the Jerry Mc Quire movie? Well, many Americans are wondering where the money is with the taxpayer funded bailouts. For instance, banks, AIG Insurance, and Automobile manufacturing plants that were deemed to be too big to fail. Did the government give the profits from the car manufacturers banks, and AIG back to the American taxpayers? Oh, I do not think so!
What is becoming clearly present is the rising temperament from the tax payers towards President Obama and Congress and yet Obama wants to impose another tax with record-breaking revenue from the taxpayers. Where is the spending restraints? Where is our money going towards? Are President Obama and some selected few trying to crash the economy so that we can go to a one world currency?
Our money is our money and it is frivolously being spent by our elected officials so that their, not our, agendas are being fulfilled. Enough of funding the lobbyist’s agenda and lining their pockets with our money.
We were sold a bunk bill of goods when the bail out talking point was framed to be “too big to fail.”
It is crippling to the typical taxpayer that we are going to suffer greatly for the “Affordable Care Act” that the president and Congress want to implement. It is going to be very interesting when Obama Care and the reality of being over-taxed is hitting most Americans pockets.
How do you think all of this is going to play out in the next five years without a decent budget and/or spending restraints from the president as well as the Congress? There has never been in the history of our nation that there is record breaking revenue from taxes as well as their monetization of intrinsic commodities. Hello, something wrong with this picture! The government and our elected officials will keep getting richer and richer while most Americans will get poorer and poorer. There is not much of a middle class left in America.
One of the major causes of the American Revolution was taxation without representation and see how it fits our modern day politics. We have the T. E. A. Party (Taxed Enough Already) to keep the government in check.
The gross spending of governmental agencies is absolutely appalling. The more money we make the more we spend seems to be the mantra for today’s reckless government spending and without much accountability.
Speaking of accountability, we need to have our president and our not so trusted elected officials to be accountable for the burdens our children and their children will be paying for, and as for the theft (s) the y have been gone for years. What have we allowed to happen to our heritage and what will they think about us leaving them with the financial burdens that they had nothing to do with? Who is going to clean up the mess?
Do you remember a few years ago when Americans stood up and sent our Congressional member’s pink notices? The ” PEOPLE “ spoke and we meant what we said at the last mid term elections. President Obama responded the next day by saying the Dems got a “shellacking.”
Wait until the next mid term election as well as the next primary election and the “People” will speak their minds when they cast their votes in the next two elections. Folks we have to be pro-active and we will surely suffer to keep the “Constitution” alive in the hearts of the Americans that love their country.
- Now keep in mind and let me be very clear I am NOT promoting seditious acts of violence for extremist to act outside of the law and to act in accordance with militia activity or any kind of vigilante activism of any kind to make a point, that is very wrong!
We will have a lot of work ahead of us in regard to getting our nation back on track. I do not believe it is a good thing to correct the wrong that has been done, as much as the importance of us being in the loop like watch dogs protecting ourselves from the government spending our money foolishly.
It is very important for us to be smart about voting for a candidate for any office. Local governments are just as important as the national governmental elections.
Would you agree it is time for us to be involved in the decision-making process in the different committees that govern our financial well-being as well as the future of our children? How dare them to ask for one more penny or one more raising of the debt ceiling without cutting spending at least 15%. We have to keep from going under in our own personal lives and they should run this country like the average citizen financially runs their home. Start the liquidation government, sell your land, get tenants in your vacant buildings, be responsible like we have to be responsible for our families and their children’s, children’s future! WE DO WHY NOT YOU?
- All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse.
Quotes by John Adams
But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever. John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams, July 17, 1775
But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution. John Adams, letter to H. Niles, February 13, 1818
Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it. John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
