Constitutional Thinking: Do ask - do tell

With all the events surrounding the Aug. 2 Debt Crisis, our politicians have again proven there is a “stupid virus” in the Potomac water. Nancy Pelosi stood up and accused John Boehner of turning to the “Dark Side.” If anyone could recognize it if they saw it, she probably could. 

Unfortunately, Boehner, (trained by Newt Gingrich), McConnell, Pelosi and Reed are all on the dark side, trying to fool voters into believing there is a real difference between Republican and Democratic proposals while they are doing nothing to restore the Republic and handing Obama more power. Do we have a dictatorship brewing?

The media has long been following the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. It is customary for them to refuse to ask the tough questions that need to be asked, and they refuse to tell the truth, even when they know what it is.

The gimmick deal Obama announced Sunday night is fraud. It won’t cut anything until 2013 when we will need to raise the debt ceiling again. Americans need to be looking at new, creative, and real solutions to our financial problems.

For example, one plan I read about calls for stopping borrowing immediately, freezing the debt, then monetizing (printing) the trillions to pay off all our debts. It would not be inflationary, since we would not be paying interest on debt. If we continue to pay interest on our debt, the payments will swallow us. 

The first Government Accountability Office (GAO) audit of the Fed was just released, and showed they secretly gave $16 Trillion to US banks, corporations and foreign banks from December 2007 to June 2010. Ron Paul, the only real American running for President, led the charge to make this possible. He has earned your trust.

While you are struggled to find a job, the Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, etc. criminal mob were into the gravy train. Major National banks no longer care about retail customers, so don’t be one of them. Use a local bank. 

The public however must wake up and get involved going into and during 2012. Pericles, a Greek statesman, orator and general during Athens’s Golden Age said, “Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you!” This is still true today. 

Financial shysters have an interest in us. We must learn to recognize their minions. They want your children: uninformed tea party leaders are endorsing charter schools. They are taxation without representation. Forget having a school board.

They want your money: either taxing it away or not giving you what you deserve. They even no longer give the death benefits to our troops. Social Security recipients get no cost of living increases, and of course, the politicians spent all the money collected and more.

They want your land, and Obama just signed Presidential Order 13575 establishing White House Rural councils to likely take more land.  They want our water and Obama just signed PO 13547: Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts, and the Great Lakes. 

They want us sick: if you know what was in your water, your food or your vaccines, you would not drink, eat or take much of what you do. They want your guns: even Democrats are now starting to worry about Obama’s plan to circumvent Congress to grab guns.  The BATF is now illegally requiring gun dealers in TX, NM, AZ and CA to file a “suspicious activity report” if you by two guns at once. They want you dead: it is now being admitted that there are Death Panels under Obama care. 

  Tea Parties are perhaps the best shot for Americans to take their Republic back, but only if they Clean House of the traitors in the ranks. If this does not take place, the Republicans will put up a Neocon presidential candidate, and support more bad bills like the Balanced Budget Amendment.

Here is a small sample supposedly “conservative: garbage to get you started: Grover Norquist, Americans for Tax Reform, is a Moslem and was Chairman of the Islamic Institute. American Spectator: Richard Mellon Scaofe (Rockefeller $). The Standard: William Kristol is backed by CFR Rupert Murdock.

Empower America: founder Bill Bennett worked to implement the Soviet quota system in America. 

Freedomworks: Dick Armey looks like he ran the effort to take over the tea parties. He is the last person that should run a tea party. 

Americans for Prosperity: Tim Phillips, President, worked with Ralph Reed whose company was tied to the Jack Abramoff scandal. The Heritage Foundation: appears tied to fascists, communists, the U.N. and Rev. Sun Myung Moon who is “here to finish Jesus job.” We can no longer afford to be fooled.

Ask questions, tell the truth and think clearly.

The gimmick deal Obama announced Sunday night is fraud. It won’t cut anything until 2013 when we will need to raise the debt ceiling again. Americans need to be looking at new, creative, and real solutions to our financial problems.

For example, one plan I read about calls for stopping borrowing immediately, freezing the debt, then monetizing (printing) the trillions to pay off all our debts. It would not be inflationary, since we would not be paying interest on debt. If we continue to pay interest on our debt, the payments will swallow us.

Excuse me, but "not paying interest on debt" is known to holders of that debt as a "default". A default is a failure to fulfill a financial obligation, and the government has financial obligations to all its creditors to pay them interest at set intervals. If the government stopped paying out the interest owed, that would be a default. Are you seriously suggesting that defaulting on our debts and permanently damaging our reputation as a trustworthy nation is a real solution, let alone a "creative" solution, to our problems?

It is true that our debt levels are dangerously high and climbing. However, it is foolish to just offhandedly remark that we should break our word as a nation to the investors who have funded our military, our infrastructure, and our economic growth over the past few decades. Being unhappy with how those investments were made or how much was borrowed does not justify destroying our reputation or ignoring our obligations to the world, which includes American citizens who have faithfully bought U.S. bonds over the years assuming the investment would support their country and the interest would support them.

"Buy bonds" was a patriotic rallying cry of World War II. Nobody would ever do it again if they expected our government to default on its obligations. Patriotism is a great thing, but it won't motivate people to invest in bonds if they know the government won't pay on them as promised. What would happen in the next war?
