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.

Will Repbulicans Repeal ObamaCare?

It is a well known fact that back room deals and bribes were made in order to pass ObamaCare. But it appears that we already have some Republicans such as Sen Richard Burr (R) NC, talking about CHANGING the legislation and not repealing it.

Americans have made it clear from the onset, they do not want it changed, they emphatically want it REPEALED.

Rep Bart Stupac sold himself for his thirty pieces of silver and I am sure it wont be long before we know what it was. He claimed to be a anti abortion democrat, but in reality, he was just waiting for the best deal he could get.

The majority of Americans are looking to the elections this November to win the legislature back for conservatives. But will they be true conservatives or will they be like Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator John McCain.

Americans want true conservatives and not Rhinos. Pelosi and Obama thought they had it in the bank because Obamacare was passed and signed into law, but they underestimated the will of We the People. The sheer determination to oust those who supported ObamaCare.

As we speak, people from around the country are getting involved in politics for the first time. They are rallying their support behind conservative candidates and volunteering their time and money to ensure victory.

Groups like RightMarch.com are working to ensure that ObamaCare is repealed and that we remind any Republican who remains in office that We the People will bend. We will stand United in our resolve to Repeal ObamaCare. You are welcome to help spread that message by going to the RightMarch.com web site and tell the representatives that you expect representation.

JD Hayworth Constitutional Conservative or the Lessor of Two Evils?

JD Hayworth Touts himself on his web site as "The Consistent Conservative." He has been consistent about stopping illegal immigration but overall what he has been consistently degrading the constitutional rights of Americans.

JD Hayworth supported the military commissions act which eradicated habeas corpus which protects against unlawful and indefinite imprisonment and allows the president to at will determine who is and is not an enemy combatant.

JD Hayworth supported making the PATRIOT Act permanent. Despite all the issues on how it violates the Constitional rights of Americans.

JD Hayworth supported making the National ID card (Real ID) mandatory for all Americans. Violating the fourth and tenth amendments. This law has been rejected by more than 25 states.

Don't even get me started on how JD Hayworth supported more imports from Communist China and supported slave labor by his support of CAFTA.

Now on the other hand, we have John McCain, who I liken to the character 'Cotton Hill' of the cartoon King of the Hill. A loud and ornery man who will do things his way and those who don't like it can go to hell.

John McCain supported the above legislation and even went as far to push Amnesty in 2007 with the now deceased Ted Kennedy. Hand in hand they worked to force a vote and it was soundly defeated only because angry Americans called capitol hill with such fervor the phone lines were effectively shut down.

Americans do not want to give Amnesty to those who have entered our country illegally, likewise they sure do not want to give up any more of their rights. Now I ask you, is there an alternative to John McCain or JD Hayworth or do you vote for the lessor of two evils? Is voting for evil still voting for evil?

Socialist Democrats Barely Pass HCR Americans Still Fighting Against it

The American people have spoken. They let their voices be heard echoing across the nation, via town hall meetings, in person contacts with representatives, protests across the nation and in front of the capitol in DC, they have called, phoned, emailed and faxed their legislators to oppose the so called health care reform legislation.

Their supposed representatives responded by ignoring their efforts, ignoring their concerns and ignoring their voices.

It took the democrats making back door deals and lots of pork in order to buy the votes they needed in order to get their way. Some legislators were even promised employment when they get kicked out of office in the November elections.

Ironically, none of these deals had to be made with the Republicans who all opposed the legislation. No, they had to bride and arm twist their own party members in order to get this bill passed.

THE FIGHT IS STILL ON
Obama can sign this into law, but the states will be fighting this bill in the courts as unconstitutional mandate and many other organizations will file suit as well.

Likewise, state legislators are enacting legislation to allow their citizens to opt out of this socialist legislation.

A WAY OUT?
Many Americans will refuse this legislation. There are some legal ways, for example if you have religious objections or you are Native American and want to opt out you will be able to on those grounds. others will simply refuse to comply and opt to pay the fines.

I have heard others say they were moving to Europe or Costa Rica, but those with backbone, will stay here and fight with all they have in them to get all democrats voted out of office and support only those who will uphold, defend and protect the Constitution.

Americans are angry, they don't want the govt to have full access to all of their medical, and financial records. They don't want to be forced to buy government run health care. They don't want their medical records in an electronic database, ripe for hackers. They do want to Live in peace and be left alone and for their legislators to stop overstepping the authority granted to them by We the People..

Americans are angry, they now want a new reform, and that reform will be to eliminate this legislation and to vote those out who supported it.

STAND UP! SPEAK UP! LIVE FREE!

Americans Taking a Stand Against Obamacare

Silenced by their Senators and ignored by the congressional representatives, Americans are protesting around the nation against the constitutional injustices be pressed by those who refuse to represent "We the People."

This show of force by the American people has not been seen since the last attempt of Amnesty and by Sen John McCain and the late Ted Kennedy.

Americans are fed up, they are tired of paying taxes, not being represented and being looked upon as though they are criminals when they speak their minds.

This is just one of many efforts being done to stop this free-fall of freedoms. Americans are also standing up and educating their freinds, family and neighbors, around the country they are running for office, local , state and even federal offices are up for grabs.

Americans are awake, they are standing up, Speaking up and Demanding to Live Free.

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.

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,

Barack Obama: You Have No Reasonable Expectation Of Privacy

Yes, Obamma said "You Have No Reasonable Expectation Of Privacy". Does he want all of our movements tracked? Does he want everything we do tracked? Open medical, cell phones, health, financial and education records. Everywhere we go and everything we buy should be an open book?

I find it a bit ironic that obama has not releases his school records or birth records, yet he expects all Americans to do so. This type of attitude and mindset is that of a dictator and not a leader. He needs to lead by example if he wants the people to follow.

Meanwhile all children born in the Untied States are forced to submit DNA for testing. This DNA is given to other agencies, including the federal government without parental consent to be stored in a permanent national database.

Now, rember people, Obama is a Constitutional Scholar. He knows the Constitution and how to manipulate it, but we have some clearly defined rights under that document.

U.S. Constitution: Fourth Amendment
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Under this document, we have the right to private phone calls, we have the right to keep our documents of any kind under our own control, but it seems more and more politicians are using it as a document to loaaht rather than to protect and defend.

2010 will be the year to elect those who will honor this document and not try to twist it for their own agendas or the agendas of their handlers. The real change is coming and don't be surprised to see a huge shift in numbers in both the house and senate this year along with state parties as more and more Americans not only show their disdain for the current political agenda but are getting involved at every level of government to help bring this nation back to the glories of limited government as it was intended and away from the intrusive monster it has become.

GET INVOLVED RUN FOR OFFICE! Get behind someone who will reverse much of the legislation passed that is unconstitutional and allow us all to be able to Live Free.

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.
