Greg’s Newsletter, Keeping the American Middle Class Informed / January 20, 2009

I have been trying to keep an eye on what is going to be proposed when the new administration takes over the government and this article will give you some idea of what we are going to be seeing. This is another reason why states rights are so important, Washington cares very little about what individual states want or need, they just broad brush their agendas on the entire country, it is just more centralization of our national government.

This is not just one side of the isle either, an example of that was the passage of the Patriot Act which was the most egregious attack on our Constitutional freedoms, ever. Then there was the relaxation and omissions of the regulations that controlled our financial system which the Republicans introduced and passed and a Democratic President signed into law. Then there was NAFTA which the Republicans and Democrats introduced and signed into law by a Democratic President which in turn gave the green light to ship hundreds of thousands of jobs outside the country, with very little return for the work force in this country.

Are you getting the jest of our current Federal Government, not only centralizing more and more of the government but also disregarding what is good for the general population for the benefit of the lobbying powers in Washington? Lobbying reform is a must and we cannot wait for the legislature to give it its just due, on their own time, because it will never happen. We must tell our elected officials we need Lobbying reform that takes out the “behind the door lobbying efforts” and have them give honest public statements on what the lobbyists are trying to obtain, for their benefit.

One final thing I haven’t mentioned lately, between 8:00am and 10:00am EST Monday thru Friday there is a talk radio show from Richmond Indiana that is probably one of the best call in shows I have ever heard. They don’t use screeners to screen out opposing views, as many of the syndicated shows do but they let you voice your opinion on what ever subject you wish. As of the last few months, obviously there have been many shows on the economy. The show is called Talk Back and the host’s name is Troy Derengowski, an excellent show host. To listen to his program go to www.930whon.com and select the “Listen Live” link and enjoy the program. He also enjoys the interaction of the listeners so give his show a call at 888-310-9466. I know it is kind of early for some of you in the Western part of our country but it truly is worth listening to and contributing to. They do not pay me for promoting his show; I just believe it is a terrific show where you can express your opinions, so it try it, I promise you, you will find it interesting and informative and they get many national experts on his show to give their expertise on what is happening in our world today.
