Can they regulate you to prosperity?

Notice the pattern . . .

* Politicians burden our economy with laws, regulations, taxes, and debt, but then . . .
* When the economy turns sour, it's never the fault of the laws, regulations, taxes, and debt, but instead . . .
* Always an excuse for more laws, regulations, taxes, and debt

The politicians tell us that an excess of government meddling was in NO WAY responsible for the Panic of 2008. They claim it all happened because we didn't have enough government involvement! Never mind the fact that . . .

* The Federal Reserve kept interest rates at artificially low levels for years
* The Democrats erected a host of programs and policies designed to expand home ownership
* The Republicans endorsed these efforts in the belief that an expanding "ownership society" would lead more people to vote Republican

The result? A huge housing bubble followed by a massive bust.

Now we're supposed to trust the same people who did all of the above, and who couldn't even regulate Bernie Madoff, despite having ample evidence of his crimes, to suddenly be able to regulate us to prosperity.

Are you really that big a sucker?

If you still believe the politicians can protect you, then get ready to be conned again . . .

The Senate is about to debate Chris Dodd's financial regulation bill. It's a whopping 1,136-pages!

Tell Congress you have a better idea. What we really need to do is end the Federal Reserve's power to blow bubbles. To make that happen . . .

Tell Congress to reject Dodd's cancerous bill, and instead pass Ron Paul's 3-page Free Competition in Currency Act.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The Free Competition in Currency Act is a much better alternative to Chris Dodd's financial regulation bill. Dodd's bill will make things worse . . .

* Its so-called "consumer protection" bureau will simply create regulations that conflict with regulations formulated by other agencies
* The bill "vastly expands the government's power to do arbitrary things -- like liquidate bank x but let bank y stand." http://www.csmonitor.com/Money/ThinkMarkets/2010/0319/Dodd-financial-reform-bill-goes-too-far
* Large banks "will be seen as safer to deal with since they will be deemed protected by the government. That will cause more individuals and companies to put their money with large banks, making the biggest banks even bigger." http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1978531,00.html#ixzz0kWFpJfot
* The bill "will do nothing to put restrictions on two entities that were proximate causes of the housing bubble, the government-sponsored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and instead hit Main Street businesses and entrepreneurial firms that had nothing to do with the crisis."
http://cei.org/articles/2010/03/16/dodd%E2%80%99s-main-street-punishment-bill
* And the bill will force prudent firms to pay into a $50 billion bailout fund to subsidize the risky behavior of irresponsible firms http://cei.org/articles/2010/03/16/dodd%E2%80%99s-main-street-punishment-bill

Creating new armies of regulators who will write thousands of pages of new regulations will only make it harder to do business in America. This may be what you want, because it will make politicians more important and powerful, but it isn't what we need.

Moreover, Dodd's bill doesn't get to the heart of the problem, which is the boom-and-bust cycle the Federal Reserve creates when it expands and contracts the money supply.

We can end the boom-and-bust cycle, and achieve greater openness and transparency, with LESS regulation, not more. The Free Competition in Currency Act achieves this by allowing individuals to "opt out" of bad Federal Reserve policies. Here's how:

* Legal tender laws will be repealed. Individuals will be free to use mutually-agreed-to forms of money, not just Federal Reserve Notes (dollars)
* Gold, silver, or other forms of money the people may want, will compete with the Fed's dollars on an equal footing
* Because no-one can inflate metal-backed money, their long-term value is more stable than the Fed's dollars, which have lost 95% of their value since the Fed was created in 1913
* In order to compete, the Fed will have to stop inflating their dollars, and banks in the Federal Reserve System will be forced to be open and transparent in order to attract skeptical depositors
* This means the boom-and-bust cycle will end and banks will become more reliable

Let's create REAL reform and transparency in our markets. Oppose Dodd's financial regulation bill and pass the Free Competition in Currency Act instead.

Who Leads the Tea Party?

Americans keep hearing the mainstream media constantly talk about the Tea Party Movement and equating it with Former Alaska Grosvenor Sarah Palin.

Most of the old main stream media are constantly repeating to the limited views they have left that the Tea Party movement sprouted up shortly after the election of Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama a man who is mixed race also known as hapa in Hawaii.

This assertion that Liberty minded Americans were only upset because a "Black Man" was elected goes beyond insane.

Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck both usurped the movement to their listeners when Congressman Ron Paul's supporters started the 'November 5th moneybomb' and then the 'Tea Party Movement'.

Nonetheless we have Sarah Palin in the mix with Senator John McCain, who tried to push Amnesty on the American people and pushed many of the unconstitutional pieces of legislation on the American people after 9/11 under the guise of security and safety.

Governor Rick Perry jumped on the tea Party bandwagon, yet he was all for pushing through the Trans Texas Corridor part of the NAFTA super highway stealing land from hard working farmers, ranchers and home owners to do so.

Americans have been unhappy for some time, they were not happy with a great deal of the legislation that was promoted under Bill Clinton, GW Bush, Obama or even want to partake in George Bush Sr's vision of a new world order.

Americans are opening their eyes to the fake left right paradigm. They are ready for real change, they are ready to return to a constitutional government. Are there any would be legislators who will return us to where we need to be so that we can all Live Free?

It is the responsibility of every American to research and question all would be politicians to ensure that only liberty minded and freedom loving representatives are elected.

Demon Pass ObamaCare

Pelosi and Reid want to deem and pass the obamcare health control bill without a full congressional vote as mandated by the Constitution.

Americans want to deem things as well in order to satisfy their wills.

Deem the Health Care Reform Bill null and void.

Deem this procedure being used to pass the HC Bill unconstitutional

Deem those who support this legislation in violation of their oaths of office.

Deem those who support this legislation unfit to hold office.

Legislators who are supporting obamacare are ignoring the will of the people. Former constitutional champion Dennis Kucinich just announced he will follow the same path.

The phone lines on capitol hill are on fire from angry voters around the country demanding that their legislators listen to those they are supposed to represent. Many believe that the only way they will be heard will be done in November during the elections.

I say if you can run for office or help someone who is that will actually represent you then do so henceforth.

Stand up, Speak up, Live Free!

Can you prove you’re not a terrorist?

Can you prove you’re not a terrorist?

March 11th, 2010  | 

The REAL ID Act has punished innocent Americans with red tape, higher fees, and lost privacy. Some in Congress want to add to these burdens.

Let’s stop them! Please tell Congress to repeal REAL ID and oppose any further attempts at creating a national ID card.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

What is the purpose of REAL ID?

* to prevent terrorists from boarding planes, even though there are an infinite number of other ways to engage in terrorism
* to prevent illegal immigrants from getting driver’s licenses – which only increases the likelihood they will drive without ever being tested, creating more dangerous roads http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/2010/02/24/symbols-security-and-collectivism/

Why should either (misguided) goal interfere with an American citizen’s attempt to renew a driver’s license?

REAL ID is working exactly as I thought it would. It punishes innocent Americans like me with red tape and higher fees by forcing us to “prove” we’re not terrorists or illegal immigrants.

In Florida . . .

* the driver’s license fee jumped from $25 to $48
* a woman was denied a license for failing to produce certified documentation of her first marriage, held in 1958 in Minnesota http://www.theledger.com/article/20100308/NEWS/3085041/1410?Title=Dozens-See-License-Renewal-Effort-Stall-Over-New-Federal-Documentation-%20%20Guidelines

* and a 68 year-old man’s Rhode Island birth certificate that had been used to get into the Air Force, and to get a Florida license 20 years earlier, was rejected http://www.theledger.com/article/20100224/EDIT01/2245000/1398

Nevada has also been plagued by long lines with applicants turned away. http://www.ktvn.com/Global/story.asp?S=12112849

Meanwhile, two New York DMV workers were recently arrested for selling “authentic” ID’s to criminals. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2010/02/23/2010-02-23_1m_ring_that_sold_crooks_legitimate_drivers_licenses_identity_packages_busted.html

This hardly inspires confidence that a nationalized ID system will stop terrorists and criminals from getting driver’s licenses!

And yet the Administration and Congress are considering a replacement to REAL ID, the PASS ID Act, which will make it even easier for corrupt state employees to get access to my identity documents! http://www.realnightmare.org/about/114/

In addition, Sens. Lindsay Graham and Chuck Schumer want to force all American workers to carry a biometric ID card. http://www.politicsdaily.com/2010/03/09/national-worker-id-card-proposed-for-immigration-plan/

In other words, to hold down a job, I would have to be fingerprinted, enrolled in a national database, and possibly tracked.

I have had it! This is America! Americans shouldn’t have to prove we’re not terrorists, or that we’re not illegal immigrants. I have the right to travel. I have the right to earn a living. I resent and reject any government program that presumes I must ask for permission.

I demand that you repeal the REAL ID Act and do everything in your power to oppose the PASS Act, the Graham-Schumer card, and all forms of national ID.

McCain and Lieberman have introduced this bill

WE are not the enemy, but we are about to be treated like we are. Keep sending the faxes on Obama care, but spare a few on this bill that is in committee and has at least nine cosponsors already

McCain and Lieberman have introduced this bill
http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s3081/show
by Pat Armstrong of Campaign for Liberty

This bill scares the fluff out of me.


The “Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010,” introduced by Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman on Thursday with little fanfare, “sets out a comprehensive policy for the detention, interrogation and trial of suspected enemy belligerents who are believed to have engaged in hostilities against the United States by requiring these individuals to be held in military custody, interrogated for their intelligence value and not provided with a Miranda warning,”

The bill does not distinguish between U.S. citizens and non-citizens, and states that “suspected belligerents” who are “considered a “high-value detainee” shall not be provided with a Miranda warning.”

A person is considered a “high value detainee” if they fulfill one of the following criteria.

(1) poses a threat of an attack on civilians or civilian facilities within the U.S. or U.S. facilities abroad; (2) poses a threat to U.S. military personnel or U.S. military facilities; (3) potential intelligence value; (4) is a member of al Qaeda or a terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda or (5) such other matters as the President considers appropriate.

Now that the Southern Poverty Law Center and the federal government, via the MIAC report and innumerable other leaked documents, now consider virtually anyone with a dissenting opinion against the state as “posing a threat,” millions of peaceful American citizens could be swept up by this frightening dragnet of tyranny.

However, according to the bill, an individual doesn’t even have to pose a threat to be snatched, detained and interrogated – they can merely be deemed to be of “potential intelligence value” or come under the vague and sweeping mandate of “such other matters as the President considers appropriate”.

This last designation hands Obama dictator powers to have any American citizen kidnapped, detained, and interrogated on a whim.

The only proviso that even hints at some form of check or balance is the measure that states, “The High-Value Detainee Interrogation Team must make a preliminary determination whether the detainee is an unprivileged enemy belligerent within 48 hours of taking detainee into custody.”

“The High-Value Detainee Interrogation Team must submit its determination to the Secretary of Defense and the Attorney General after consultation with the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. The Secretary of Defense and the Attorney General make a final determination and report the determination to the President and the appropriate committees of Congress. In the case of any disagreement between the Secretary of Defense and the Attorney General, the President will make the determination,” states the bill.

The ACLU has expressed its vigorous opposition to the legislation, labeling it nothing less than a “direct attack on the Constitution”.

“Indefinite detention flies in the face of American values and violates this country’s commitment to the rule of law,” states Laura W. Murphy, Director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.

Of course, such positions from the ACLU as well as Amnesty International will only be used as grist for the neo-con propaganda mill about how the bill ought to be passed in order to avoid being “soft on terrorists,” a piece of spin still being swallowed whole by millions of conservatives who are blissfully unaware of the fact that the apparatus of the war on terror is now being aimed squarely at politically active American citizens.

“Torture, indefinite imprisonment, secret trials and limited staged hearings are the stuff of cheap dictatorships,” writes Ian McColgin. “They are the sort of idiocy we scorned in the Soviets, the Koreans and the Vietnamese. It is astonishing that we have senators and citizens even discussing this bill which is not a capitulation to terrorism – it’s the triumph of terrorism.”

Don't let the NFL take your away your vitamins

Senator John McCain has introduced S. 3002, the Dietary Supplement Safety Act (DSSA).

This bill will . . .

* control your ability to use vitamins,
* for the benefit of the major sports leagues

The following welfare queens endorsed McCain's bill within hours of its introduction . . .

* The National Football League
* The National Basketball Association
* Major League Baseball
* National Hockey League
* The NCAA
* The Professional Golf Association
* The U.S. Olympic Committee

Nearly all of these entities receive tax funding to build the stadiums they play in. Now they want to make your supplements more expensive so that none of their rich athletes will accidentally ingest anything banned by league rules. But you can take action to kill this bill.

It's crucial to understand that most vitamins and supplements aren't drugs. Your food that grows in the ground, or on the hoof, is full of these substances. That's one reason why previous government attempts to label these nutritional supplements as drugs, and regulate them, have met with fierce public opposition. Indeed . . .

Prior to the Internet, one such government power grab generated what may have been the biggest barrage of letters to Congress in American history. That power grab failed, because public pressure works!

Instead of regulating supplements Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 DSHEA).

That law states that most nutritional substances do not require FDA pre-approval before going to market, and cannot be re-classified as drugs.

Now, John McCain seeks to repeal key provisions of the DSHEA. Yet in his remarks introducing S.3002 . . .

* he provides no evidence that the relatively free-market approach of the DHSEA has failed

* he cites no evidence that dietary supplements(PDF), consumed by 150 million Americans, are unsafe or a threat to public health

And the DSSA is completely unnecessary to address the (minor) steroid problem. In fact, the problems McCain does cite were already addressed by current law, which has not been competently enforced by the FDA!

* the FDA already has authority to ban any substance containing anabolic steroids
* and products are already required to list all their ingredients

To make matters worse, ". . . the bill reverses "common law, which assumes all is legal unless restricted. DSSA would allow only what is permitted to be legal."

The DSSA is nothing but regulatory "corporate welfare" for major sports leagues (and multi-national drug companies). It will put the FDA in the business of helping the NFL, Major League Baseball, etc. enforce their substance policies -- at your expense.

This bill will deny you freedom of choice, place expensive burdens on small enterprises, and do nothing to protect your health. It will actually make you less healthy, by causing nutritional substances to be less available and more expensive.

Please use these talking points to tell your Representative and your two Senators to oppose S. 3002, John McCain's Dietary Supplement Safety Act.

And if you're excited about DownsizeDC.org's work, please do one or both of the following:

1) Start a monthly pledge or make a one-time donation.
2) Commit to sharing this campaign with ten other people who would be interested in this issue.

Both methods will help grow the Downsize DC Army,

Sit Down and Shut Up

Do not call your legislators at the state and local level. They are busy people and are working hard to make sure you and I are all kept safe and secure from threats abroad and at home. they don't have time to listen to you or I so just sit down and shut up.

Do not go to protests, it is a waste of money and resources when extra police have to be called, plus all the litter and noise is just annoying. Besides it wont do any good. it's not like anyone really cares about a bunch of people who are upset over silly things like the Constitution and the truth.

Do not run for office at any level, after all the system is broken and cannot be changed from within. just sit down and shut up. Our leaders know what is best for us.

Do not worry about who to vote for, just choose the name that sounds the most familiar. Do stay away from those with radical ideas who speak about liberty, freedom, government accountability, ethics, limited government and the like. Those are merely outdated and antiquated ideas brought about by radicals in the 1700's.

Do not complain about health care legislation. Our legislators know what we need and we should just be grateful for the extra taxes we will have to pay even though it will be less than we are used to, at least everyone will get some kind of care. Yes the legislators need better health care then you or I, indeed after all they are the decider's, so sit down and shut up.

Do not complain about taxes. So what if it takes nearly six months to pay for one years of all taxes combined. We should all be so lucky to be able to have six months of tax free income. We need to pay taxes to help pay for the great health insurance and salaries of our leaders. We need to pay to help them take trips around the world and dine on exotic meals. They deserve it after all for all the hard work they do to protect us.

Do not complain about national id's or full body scanners. They are there to protect us. A few extra x-rays should not cause too much damage to our bodies and besides if it does, we have our free health care to rely upon to fix it.

Do not complain about cameras on the street corners and in nearly every building you enter. They are their to help keep you safe and help police figure out who may have attacked and mangled you in the middle of the night.

Do not complain about the police taking your blood at checkpoints. They have to make sure no one is drunk or on drugs to help keep us all safe on the roads. So what if they put the blood in DNA databases. Perhaps they can use those samples to help find cures for current and future diseases. It's not like they would ever abuse their authority and misuse the information.

Do not worry about what is in your food. Genetically modified food is good for you. The Europeans do not understand the benefits of this type of food and have banned it, but our FDA says it is good and thus it must be so, because they would never approve a food or drug unless it has been fully tested to ensure that it is safe now and will not have any long term negative side affects.

Do not take vitamins or bother eating organic or unprocessed foods. Again all food approved by the FDA must be safe for you and vitamins can be more dangerous than FDA approved medications and besides, your free health care panel may not allow the consumption of non FDA approved supplements.

Do not worry, it causes too much stress. Let your mind and bodies go free. Sit back enjoy an hour or ten of TV. You can escape into the lives of others real or imagined without the stress of utilizing your own brain cells. Just sit down and shut up. All is well.

URGENT: Don't be a Patriot Act coward

Three provisions of the so-called USA PATRIOT ACT are set to expire on February 28. You can learn more about them from our February 10 Dispatch.

Instead of letting these unneeded provisions lapse, Congress will likely extend them, perhaps 30 days, or maybe to the end of 2010. BUT THIS COULD HAPPEN AS SOON AS TODAY.

Worse, Congressional leaders will probably insert this extension in unrelated legislation. This is cowardly. This issue deserves an up-or-down vote on its own merits (or lack thereof).

Please express your anger about this by telling Congress to pass the One Subject At A Time Act.

You can borrow from or copy this letter . . .

My understanding is that Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi intend to attach the PATRIOT ACT renewal measure to an unrelated bill, at the last minute. This is wrong. The renewal deserves its own, separate vote.

It seems obvious to me that Reid and Pelosi fear . . .

* a floor debate in which Republicans will shamelessly attack Democrats for being "soft on terror"
* that civil libertarians will be angry if some Democrats vote for the extension

But these are exactly the kinds of debates, and stands, we need our representatives to have and to take. Plus, Reid and Pelosi are being silly if they think civil libertarians won't be angry about the extension being passed as a part of unrelated legislation. This will increase our anger, not diffuse it.

Please make the following case to Reid and Pelosi . . .

* the Constitutionality and effectiveness of these provisions deserve to be debated in both chambers

* this is a debate that the anti-PATRIOT side will win in the court of public opinion

* Americans have lost their fear of terrorism http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/01/11/rel1aa.pdf;

* if Democrats lose in the fall, it will definitely not be because they oppose these Patriot Act extensions

* combining unrelated legislation will increasingly be a reason for voters to switch control of Congress to another party

I demand that you oppose ANY bill that contains a Patriot Act extension, no matter how important you think the rest of the bill is. If the bill is really that important then the leadership will resubmit it without the unrelated Patriot Act provisions.

I also demand that you introduce DownsizeDC.org's One Subject At A Time Act to stop the corrupt and cowardly habit of combining unrelated bills into one package.

END LETTER

Because of the urgency of this issue, please also call your Representative and your Senators. Tell them to oppose the Patriot Act renewal. You can find their phone numbers when you log-in to the OSTA Campaign.

Please also make a contribution to further our work.

Pelosi to unveil their "new" health care Feb 25th

I hate to tell you, BUT the battle to stop the takeover of our health care is not over.

In 4 days, on February 25, President Obama will hold a "Health Care Summit" where he and Speaker Nancy Pelosi will unveil their "new" health care plan that they are currently writing in secret behind closed doors.

The Left is hoping their "summit" will be the game-changer they need to re-launch their scheme to take over our health care system.

You and I need to make sure that does not happen.

At Americans for Prosperity, we're holding our own Critical Care: The Patients' Summit to deliver a simple message: the American people have rejected this trillion-dollar takeover of health care. So Congress should start over from scratch, or better yet, focus on policies that create jobs and get our economy moving again.

First, we'll gather outside the Blair House at 9:30 a.m. on February 25 where President Obama will be hosting his "summit." We'll make sure attendees like Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid hear our message as they head inside.

Then, beginning at 11:30am we will hold our own Critical Care: The Patients' Summit at the JW Marriott in DC.

If you can't join us in person in Washington, you can still be a part of the Patients' Summit. We'll be Webcasting live online at AmericansforProsperity.org.

Between now and President Obama's "summit," we need to email and call our senators and member of Congress to tell them in advance that the American people do not want another big-government, tax-and-spend, freedom-crushing piece of legislation to come up again.

So, I'm asking you to CLICK HERE to call your elected representatives today.

It's fast. It's easy. More importantly, it makes a difference.

The Left is hoping that we have moved on from the health care battle. They're thinking that President Obama's "summit" is their big chance to get the ball rolling again.

A lot of senators and congressmen are wondering if the mood of the American people has changed.

We've got to show them in a crystal clear fashion that the American people simply do not trust the Washington politicians with our health care.

Thanks for all you're doing and let's keep fighting.

Speak not the truth, fear your leaders

Sometimes even I am shocked at what I hear and am stumped as to what I should say. Recently I heard a child tell his grandmother who was speaking badly about the Obama administration and the policies her dislike for the majority of congress speak up and say "grandma, don't say those things or you will go to jail."

Why would an eight year old think such a thing? Where would he get such ideas? After picking myself up form the floor, I asked him and he said "I just thought it was so."

I took it upon myself to quickly educate him on the Constitution and the role of our elected officials. I took the time to explain to him that all elected officials work for us the voters and that it is our duty and our right to let them know if we do not agree with them or if we think they are doing a bad job. I essentially explained to him "We are their bosses not the other way around."

Now this boy does attend public school so that could explain his mindset, but hopefully I have given him some insight and his parents and grandparents will continue to reiterate it.

Now with all that said and done, we have what appears to be an intentional crash of a small plane into an IRS building by someone who has been speaking up against what he felt was wrong. The man who obviously had issues beyond disliking governmental policies took his own life.

What will the ramifications be for his actions? Well, I can only speculate that others who complain about things, like Obamacare, the IRS, Big government, government intrusion and so on may bring the little boy's fear to a reality.

We should never put the actions of one person into the same ranks as the rest of a group. That would be stereotyping something that most PC liberals lobby against.
