What the Canada Free Press says about Americans…

This article was taken from the Canada Free Press newspaper…

Doesn’t mean I agree with it, but I am willing to view other ideas…remember what Patrick Henry said.

310 million Americans have allowed 546 political pigs in Washington DC to completely destroy the greatest nation ever known to mankind. The people didn’t destroy the nation themselves, even though they will be the ones who will have to pick up the pieces and start all over, once it all comes unhinged… But they have allowed it.
We have one president, one vice president, nine Supreme Court justices’, 435 members of the people’s House and 100 US senators. That’s 546 people responsible for forcing 310 million Americans into the proverbial soup line, where 546 political pigs hope Americans will choose global secular socialism as a lesser evil to a complete socio-economic meltdown.
What are the People Thinking?

What makes 310 million Americans feel like they are held hostage by 546 political thugs? Why are modern Americans afraid of self-governance? Why are freedom and liberty no longer worth fighting for in the land of the free and home of the brave? The Founders would be taking us all to the woodshed for what we have allowed to happen in this country…
I don’t care what political party you think you belong to. If you are not willing to stand and fight for personal freedom and individual liberty, the fundamental unalienable rights which our Founders established as gifts from our Creator, then you my friend are NOT American…
If you are American, then no matter what party you think represents you in Washington DC, I’m here to tell you that nobody in Washington DC represents you today. We have 546 idiots running legislative roughshod over 310 million American citizens and it appears that the average American has either not figured this out yet, has no idea what to do about it, or has entirely lost their will to be free.
Which Straw will be the Last?

Every American needs to read the facts about how we got in this mess and who put us here. On January 28, 2009, I released a column titled Congressional Democrats Bankrupted the Nation. If you don’t know this already, then read the column. That’s why I wrote it; so that American citizens would know what went wrong and who is really responsible for it. If you don’t know who or what is wrong, you can’t fix it.
It took leftists just under a hundred years to accomplish it. You have only days or weeks to reverse it… and you are working against massive odds, or so it would seem according to the leftwing propaganda press. I’m not sure how 546 thugs and pigs have an upper hand over 310 million American’s, but that’s what they tell me… 310 million wimps, sure, – but American’s, no…
In case you have not noticed, the Obamanation is not trying to stimulate the recovery of the free market economy. That’s why every move they have made since taking control of the fed has driven the free market economy right off the cliff. It is global Marxism they seek to stimulate, with your assets, and investors know it even if you don’t!
No, Obama and company have not made a single mistake since taking office. They have not skipped a single beat in their evil march towards global Marxism. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is at the White House today, carrying with him a plan for US led international socialism, all at the expense of American sovereignty, security, freedom and prosperity.
US Unemployment is shooting through the roof and you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

Your new “no earmark” Resident-in-Chief has already agreed to 9000 pork barrel earmarks in his first annual budget. That was easy! And that’s in addition to his trillion dollars in socialist earmark spending fraudulently disguised as a “stimulus package.”
In the 40 days since Obama was sworn into office, Obamanation fiscal policies have cost American citizens trillions in new tax debt and trillions more in life savings. The DOW has lost another 20% of its value just since Obama set up his crib at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
If you are wondering where the bottom is, it is somewhere around 3000, not the 6800 it is today, according to investment experts currently running for cover in search of free foreign markets moving towards capitalism, instead of away from it.
What do you think the US unemployment rate will be when the DOW hits 5000, then 4000 and then 3000? Refer to my column Congressional Democrats Bankrupted the Nation if you care to know the real truth about how we got here. How we get out of here is not nearly so clear now.
If you bought the campaign lie that Obamanation would never come after your guns, you had better take a look at H.R. 45 real soon! Study how England removed guns from the hands of honest citizens and then see how citizens of England feel about that today. Obamanation is on the same path.
My name is “change” – How do you like me now?

Had enough yet? Your dollar is worth .35 cents and it will soon be worth less than a dime. Your 401k savings are now worth less than half of what they were worth one year ago and in the coming weeks and months, they will be worth even less.
Your home is worth at best 75% of what it was worth a year ago, thanks to “toxic” mortgages put in place by guess who? That’s right, congressional Democrats. The stock market is down not only due to “toxic” stocks backed by “toxic” mortgages. It’s continuing down because private investors will never invest in a government run economy which seeks only to enrich itself, stupid!
It took congressional Democrats almost a hundred years to spend American taxpayers into the first trillion dollars in debt, despite ever increasing federal taxation that went from 5% of GDP to 40% of GDP during the NEW DEAL 20th century.
Obamanation has quadrupled that debt during their first 40 days in power! And, just in case you missed the daily headline of the last 40 days, your trillions in new tax debt has only made matters worse.
What are 310 million people thinking?

In Obamessiah Global Socialism, the government now trusts. Not in you, the average American!
According to Plunkett Research, American home ownership hit an all time high of 68.1% at the end of 2007. More than 2 of 3 American families were able to live the dream of homeownership.
Total outstanding US mortgage balances were only $14.8 trillion dollars and according to all reports, less than 10% of those mortgages are “toxic,” or, $1.48 trillion dollars worth.
If it were the people politicians trusted, the fed could have paid off all $1.48 trillion in “toxic” loans for less money than they just spent on their wish list of leftist entitlement programs, including $4 billion to the criminal thug organization, ACORN.
If “toxic” mortgages were the only problem and we were seeking a real solution to the impending economic meltdown of the world’s most prosperous nation, Washington DC would have directly addressed these mortgages instead of going on a Marxist spending spree, leaving American homeowners headed for foreclosure and falling property values.
The American people are kidding themselves to think any other way…
546 Thugs and Pigs run this Place?

Are you kidding me? While Obama throws hip-hop parties, buys his wife top shelf designer gowns, flies across the country in your jet just to sign a bill you don’t even want, drives your country off an economic cliff and even goes so far as to discourage private charitable donations so that he can control who gets that money too, you sit on your hands like you have no say in these matters?
Are Americans terminally stupid, or are they just plain ole cowards?
Of the people, by the people, for the people, my eye! Tell me how many of the 546 Washington dimwits actually represent the people today? How many represent you?
Why do you think that 310 million Americans are powerless against 546 political pigs currently rushing to destroy your country?
And the only people protesting in the streets are Obama-fools duped hook, line and sinker into believing Al Gore’s Global Warming Swindle, through which Gore himself has pocketed millions in his Carbon Deposit Offset scam?
3000 march on the coldest day of the year to protest alleged global warming. 200 march to protest a very real runaway federal government. What? Say that again?
Home of the Brave, huh!

America is a land full of cowards in search of a free-ride, nothing more. We have a government of children, for children. America is more like the land of the village idiot and home of the defenseless coward today. I am ashamed!
I am ashamed that hundreds of thousands of decent Americans have volunteered to put on a uniform and die for freedom and liberty, just so that cowardly civilians back home, could toss it all away from the comfort of their Lazy Boy recliner in the end.
Globalization has already failed, in case you haven’t noticed. The entire world is in economic meltdown. But that doesn’t even provide a moment’s hesitation in Obamanation’s plan to globalize some more.
For more than 230 years, America was the one nation on earth that fed a globe full of nations unable to feed themselves under some variety of socialism or communism. Today, America is on the verge of not being able to feed itself and the rest of the world is in even worse shape.
When America can no longer feed itself, who will feed the world then? The people we have been feeding for the last 200 years or so?
Americans had better wake up and grow the peaches to take their nation back while there is still a nation to take back. I have never met a politician I trusted 100%. Up until now, I’ve always relied upon my fellow Americans to right all wrongs.
Where are those Americans now?

By the way… While you are busy losing your savings, your jobs and your homes, federal employees will get a 3.9% pay increase this year and no private citizen has benefits equal to the federal employ they pay for!
My name is “change.” How do you like me now?

If you’re still not sure how we got here and where we are headed, take a moment to look at how the left has run major US cities into the ground. Start with America’s greatest proletariat city, Detroit… Detroit’s outlook falls along with home prices!
The folks who ran Detroit and Chicago into the ground now run the nation. Unless and until, you are truly ready to take your nation back!
How did 310 million American’s come to fear 546 idiots so deeply? I’ll never figure that one out!

Info on the Proposed Economic Stimulus Package


http://www.nostimulus.com/

Quote:
Any so-called stimulus program is a ruse. The government can increase its spending only by reducing private spending equivalently. Whether government finances its added spending by increasing taxes, by borrowing, or by inflating the currency, the added spending will be offset by reduced private spending. Furthermore, private spending is generally more efficient than the government spending that would replace it because people act more carefully when they spend their own money than when they spend other people’s money.
— Richard Wagner, Professor of Economics, George Mason University
Quote:
Under the bureaucratic jargon of “Comparative Effectiveness Review” the package heavily funds the first steps towards the government-mandated rationing of health care and tramples your right to medical privacy. (Our own AFP senior fellow, Dr. Larry Hunter, was the first to blow the whistle on this.

Hidden in the stimulus, a very unhealthy provision
BY LARRY HUNTER
Friday, January 30th 2009, 4:00 AM
President Obama is pleading with the Senate to pass the massive economic stimulus package quickly. His sense of urgency is warranted – but not because America’s economic recovery depends on federal spending.
Rather, if taxpayers and lawmakers actually have the time to digest what’s in the bill, it stands no chance of passing. The measure claims to “to create jobs, restore economic growth, and strengthen America’s middle class,” but it’s really just a collection of giveaways and outlays for favored constituents and programs.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in the package’s proposed spending on health care. Billions are earmarked for Medicaid and investments in centrally planned health information technology systems. But the most sinister of the bill’s line items is a relatively tiny $1.1 billion for government-chartered comparative-effectiveness research.
This new effort would investigate various medical treatments and attempt to determine which ones work best. Proponents claim that comparative-effectiveness research (CER) would empower doctors and patients to find out if newer, more expensive treatments are really worth the additional cost.
The federal government, which accounts for about a third of our nation’s healthcare spending, obviously has an interest in the outcome of comparative-effectiveness research. If older, cheaper treatments are found to be just as good as the cutting-edge ones, the feds stand to save a lot of money.
In other countries, like the United Kingdom, comparative-effectiveness agencies routinely deny patients new treatments, citing cost-effectiveness. As a result, thousands of Britons afflicted with diseases that are expensive to treat – like cancer – suffer needlessly, unable to get the pricey meds they need.

What’s Wrong with the Stimulus Bill?
The so-called “Stimulus Package” is being sold to taxpayers as an investment in useful infrastructure like roads and bridges. But the facts prove otherwise.
Only 3.6% of the scheme’s $825 billion price tag would actually go to real, practical infrastructure projects–roads and bridges.
Most of the other 96.4% would go to special interest pet projects, and to cramming years’ worth of radical policy changes into the single largest spending and debt scheme in history.
Even the Congressional Budget Office, the official scorekeeper of the economic impact of legislation, has said that it would, on balance, hurt the economy.
Why are our nation’s leaders doing this? Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel was strikingly honest when he said “Never let a serious crisis go to waste…it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.” Exactly what fringe policies are big-government politicians attempting to ram through with this colossal bill?
Under the auspices of a “Comparative Effectiveness Review,” the package heavily funds the first steps towards the socialization and government-mandated rationing of health care. And this is just one of many government power grabs being shoehorned into the so-called “Stimulus Package.”
In fact, even by the most charitable estimates, the bill would force taxpayers to foot the bill for at least 600,000 new government bureaucrats. That’s six tenths of a million more people on the government payroll — adding little or no value to our economy and being paid with billions upon billions of your hard-earned tax dollars.
And just what sort of special interest giveaways and wasteful government spending are included in the so-called “Stimulus Package”? To name just a few…
– $4.19 billion in slush funds for ACORN, the left-wing advocacy group best known for allegations of voter fraud during the 2008 presidential campaign
– $600 million to buy brand new cars for government bureaucrats
– $335 million for adult sex workshops (one of the few line items which could conceivably deliver “stimulus” )
– $150 million for honeybee insurance
– $2.8 billion for the US Department of Agriculture in a misdirected program more likely be spent to build unnecessary broadband internet services in urban areas than in the rural areas that lack service.
These are just a few examples of the shameless feeding frenzy taking place in halls of Congress today with this so-called “Stimulus Package.”
This trillion-dollar debt and spending scheme will provide little or no stimulus, but will put each and every American household in at least $6,700 of new debt, to be paid by our children and grandchildren.
Quote:
Spending Stimulus Can’t Work
1. Every dollar the government spends comes from the private sector.
Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman famously said: “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” Government spending is either financed through higher taxes, higher federal borrowing, or by printing money. Those are the only possibilities. They all create greater economic damage than any stimulus effect of new spending.
● Tax increases lower the incentive to work, save, and invest. There is a strong association between tax increases and reduced economic growth. In an economic crisis, tax hikes should be unthinkable. The Revenue Act of 1932 was one of the major reasons an economic crisis deepened into the Great Depression.
● Government borrowing also takes money out of the private economy—the money that bond purchasers hand over to the government in exchange for the bonds. That money could otherwise be used for business investment that would expand the economy’s productive capacity. If the funds are borrowed from abroad, our exports are lowered because U.S. dollars are being used to buy bonds instead of goods. Borrowed funds also have to be paid back, placing a burden on future taxpayers. Excessive borrowing also may increase interest rates, deepening the credit crisis.
● Inflation may be most damaging financing mechanism of all. If government spends money that it hasn’t taxed or borrowed, then it is literally creating money out of thin air. More dollars being created means that the dollars in our pockets and bank accounts are worth less than they were before. Inflation is a stealth tax that erodes the value of everything and destroys real economic growth.
2. History shows spending stimulus fails.
America experimented with large-scale expansions of government spending in the 1930s with the New Deal and again in the 1960s and 70s with the Great Society. These dramatic expansions of government spending coincided with economic failure. The long-boom that started under Reagan and continued until now with only a couple of brief, mild recessions coincided with a significant decline in federal spending as a percentage of the economy.
3. Infrastructure projects should be judged on their merits, but not as stimulus.
There is a role for government in providing certain public goods that the market cannot efficiently provide. If financing is available at favorable rates it may make sense to take a long-term view and begin projects that are legitimately justified on their merits. We should be under no misconception, however, that public works spending is stimulative, because borrowed dollars are taken out of the private sector.
