Nearing the end of Our Constitutional Republic / Mo Kiah / January 30, 2009

January 30, 2009

Some misconceptions need to be cleared up. First…The United States government is a Constitutional Republic; the founders knew of the detrimental results created by Democracies and Monarchies.

Benjamin Franklin quote… “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. A Republic is a well armed lamb contesting the vote.”

In other words, the rule of law accompanied by strong compliance with the Constitution most effectively represents “The People” and puts checks and balances on our three levels of federal government to prevent tyranny from showing its power-hungry teeth and treating the self-governed as red-headed-terrorist-stepchildren.

Secondly… Congress receives 99% of bills or acts from their special interests. Congress doesn’t write bills any more (with the exception of Ron Paul and possibly a few others). They are dictated to by greedy, power-hungry fascist corporate lobbyists; Congress takes the draft, fiddles with it, adds pork to it, then they vote on it. End result? We get screwed again.

If anybody believes that a bailout “For The People” is what’s needed to set this country back on its correct path, well, it ain’t gonna happen. Stealing our compensation for services rendered to our employers…then turning around to redistribute the compensation to other people or entities is theft! I don’t like it when our employees steal from “We The People” to bailout some sorry-ass, incompetent entity. It degrades our country, our way of life, threatens freedom and liberty of the people. It also leads to an ever decreasing value of our dollar’s purchasing power at the expense of us, our children and grandchildren.

This bailout scenario is being pursued to usher in a global monetary system that will automatically justify the necessity for a global government. This incremental process has been in the works for over one hundred years. And unfortunately, it looks like everything is right on schedule. Do a little research on “Global Government”, “Central Banks” or “Global Monetary System” and see what results you retrieve.

These bailouts and the accompanying smoke and mirrors (by the way, the mirrors are fading to clear glass) being used to justify the repair of a doomed monetary system are no more than the continuation of an effort to crush the American self-governing process. I don’t take it lightly and “I will not go quietly.”

Democracy = Mob Rule, Constitutional Republic = Rule of law. The main problem is getting the lobbyists out of Washington. There’s 41,000 of them, so we have our work cut out for us.

Well this is just great, the first step of the $815 billion “stimulus bill” is on its way to increase the debt of the United States. With some of the provisions, it will take ten years to implement, so where is getting the economy jump started? You add the interest on this stimulus bill and it comes out to about $1.2 trillion. The only thing it is stimulating is the Democrats are flexing their liberal mussels. The Democrats, during the elections, where touting bipartisan co-operation when they take even larger control of Congress. They proved themselves, as many politicians do, not being truthful because there were no Republicans involved in formulating this bill, big surprise there.

The Republicans circled the wagons and not one of them voted for it. They did this because not that they are truly fiscally conservative, as we found out during the last administration, but because they have got to try to re-position their party to try to give an example of their true basic Republican ideal of being fiscally conservative, which we have learned, they are not.

Both parties like to spend money they don’t have and justify why they are spending our money. As I have stated many times in the past, both parties are just enablers for the self serving lobbyists. The lobbyists write the bills before Congress and Congress doesn’t read them but pass them because of lobbying influence. That is truly the way our Congress works. If you haven’t noticed, over the last 10 to 15 years, the economic situation for the people of our country has been going down. It has gone down enough now that just about everyone is being affected by this down turn in the economic direction of our lives. Just about everything the government has done is the direct cause of this disaster and both parties are to blame.

From the deregulating the financial industry to implementing socialistic directions in many facets of the governing of this country, we have lost our representation for us, the people who are going to end up paying for all of this. Until lobbying is taken out from behind closed doors, we will not have our voice heard. Please get involved and write, call, or email your representatives in Washington and tell them to work for us, not the lobbyists, we are the people who they are supposed to be representing. If you want my essay I wrote in 2005 to come true, inaction by the American public will insure we will become a third world working class nation.

One final note, tomorrow 1/30/08 at 8:15 am EST I will be answering questions, from listeners, on the overall economic status of our economy, on Troy Derengowski’s radio show Talk Back.

I have decided to publish an article that is not directly economic related because of its importance-and that is studies have found high levels of mercury in our food chain. This article, from the Washington Post, gives you the source of the mercury, Corn Syrup, which is in so much of what we eat and drink, very unsettling report.

With the many different recalls and problems with many sections of our food chain and medical ingredients in recent years, you have to wonder if profit is more important that our safety or is it with all of this “World Economy” we are being subjugated to inferior foods with little to no inspection by the FDA. Is it due to budget constraints or did they put the cart before the horse? That is getting the profits before the safety constraints were in place to inspect the imported food and medicines.

Which brings me to point I have been pondering for a while, a question was asked, is capitalism a good or bad thing? In its current form, it is a very bad thing. Now before you all start calling me a socialist or communist let me explain. Our economy used to be called a “free market enterprise” and you don’t hear that term much anymore and that is do to the fact that most large corporations controls large parts of the markets they are in. The relaxation of the Anti Trust Laws regarding monopolies has been eased over the years. This gives these corporations major controls over the market places they are in, thus reducing the competition within those market places. Competition is what made this country great through the innovation in all aspects of the companies operations and products in their given market places but with the elimination of those competing companies, through acquisitions and buyouts and closures, the bottom line is the only thing directing these corporations. Profit is why we are in business but profit with little regard to anything else but profit is a very bad thing.

All of our large corporations are now international corporations and we in the USA are nothing much more that just another customer. We are loosing our national identity and sovereignty due to this mentality. As we see as in the article above, we are loosing our national security too. Not by terrorists or rouge governments but by the very corporations that are based here in the USA who believe in the bottom line mentality. You may think this is a bit strong language to use but look at what these giant corporations in financial industry have done. They abused the system they influenced, to reduce the regulations on that industry and look where it has got us, the nation is broke and so are we becoming that more and more everyday. Example: Monday another 68,000 people lost their jobs in this country and the January 2009 total to this point is over 205,000 people loosing their jobs. Add that to the 2.4 million who lost their jobs in 2008, things are not going well for the current direction of “capitalism” in the United States of America.

This is not a Republican or Democrat thing but an uncontrolled lobbying power that influences our economic system from behind closed doors. This is not a conspiracy but how Washington does business. That is why you have over 41,000 lobbyists for 535 political positions in our Federal Government. This last election was the country wanting “change” in the way Washington does business. I am not relating whether President Obama is good or bad but looking at who will be his economic advisors, I don’t see a big change coming and until the financial system is straightened out, very little else can be accomplished. This article will give you a run down on who they are:

Besides these people, Bernanke is still the head of the Federal Reserve and Timothy Geithner will be the Secretary of the Treasury. We know what Bernanke has done thus far, loading up the banks and lending institutions with created money and these institutions just sat on it to protect their bottom lines stock holders and did not release it to get the economy moving again. Then Geithner, current President of the New York Federal Reserve and controlling bank of the entire Federal Reserve, has been involved with Secretary of the Treasury Paulson’s dispersion of the funds, every step of the way of the first $850 billion bailout ($700 billion for bailout and $150 billion for Washington Pork). Between both entities there has been a total of about $8 trillion of direct capital injection and Federal Reserve guarantees to correct this disaster and nothing seems to get our economy going again, instead it is slipping further into deep recession. To top this off, Bloomberg Information Services is suing the Federal Reserve and Paulson’s Treasury to get information on $2 trillion they dispersed and won’t tell where it went. So I ask, where is the change coming from?
