A Long Hard Fight

“Our opposition is to the thing which once existed, in order that they may never return. We oppose money in politics, we oppose the private control of national finances, we oppose the treating of human being as commodities, we oppose the saloon-bossed city, we oppose starvation wages, we oppose rule by groups or cliques. In the same way we oppose a mere period of coma in our national life….”

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Acceptance Speech For Vice-Presidential Nomination, Hyde Park, August 9, 1920. From: Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Great Speeches, Edited by John Grafton, Dover Publications.

F.D.R.’s 1920 speech proves we have been trying to accomplish a means to exclude big corporate, wealthy and super PAC’s out of our political system. The responsibility rests upon our shoulders to pursue an Amendment to our Constitution. We know that big corporations charge us financially for their operations that include huge amounts of money given to areas of our political system.

Please imagine for a moment, if part of legislation to conform to a Constitutional Amendment is a requirement upon corporations/like entities to reduce billing by the money that was once held within their budget for lobbying efforts? Such would be the greatest tax-break all of us could expect. Less money on every utility, every loan or credit card, gasoline to even the automobile you use for transport. Big corporations have large amounts of foreign funds now allowed in our political system.

A common saying, “All politicians lie.” Money by the millions buying media time, “lame-stream media” telling us anything they think they could have us believe. Why is a lie from a politician acceptable to us? A person with ethics would condemn a politician who uses an actor/actress to give us a false impression, readily played by the “lame-stream media”. Political ads on the media, including any mail you may receive, stating false information that when challenged the political ad is pulled, but a politician without ethics would do nothing else after discontinuing a false ad. A politician with ethics would put as much into ensuring a correction is ran in the media to, at least, the same exposure, reaching at least the same number of people to prove the honesty of the politician. Everyone knows we often have a political choice of the lesser of two evils.

“Government is a necessary evil of society.” Common Sense, by Thomas Paine.

Civil rights, women’s rights, corporate fraud, government fraud, jobs, economy, war, environment all the issues you hold dear to your heart can all be corrected if we kept a single ideal in-mind when voting; does the candidate support our Amendment to the Constitution! Votes, not money, should determine our elections. The candidates for President of Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter were paid entirely with government funds for their campaign.

Once we realize the huge effects the appropriate Constitutional Amendment is when “We the People…” take-back our government. The political divide in our Legislative Branch would end. The Legislative Branch has already in our Constitution the ability to regulate the Judicial Branch, to add ethics so no Justice of the Supreme Court appears or hears a case of partisan political activity. Participation in any partisan political activity is merely common sense ethical conduct known to the public.

Our struggle is difficult with many hurdles. We know now the corporate media is one of the strongest political groups sacrificing journalistic ethics in-favor of partisan political activity. The struggle for your political support is the media and partisan political entities.

The time is now for us to force political support for our Constitutional Amendment. Let’s not be politically naïve while we continue our struggle. One single group will never succeed, only when we all work together with our different forms of Constitutional Amendment will such become a pure Amendment and pass Congress and directly to the States for ratification.

Today’s Tyranny

DETROIT, Michigan, along with Flint and even a couple other cities!

Please correct me if I’m wrong with any of this post. 1- Each city elected people responsible to the citizens of that city to run its government. 2- The Governor appointed a person (not elected) to replace or otherwise over-rule the properly elected government making decisions in their place. 3- The appointed person has broad and powerful authority as if he/she was the elected government.

CAN YOU SEE? Corporations, this is exactly how they operate. A chairman C.E.O. is made aware of an area in need of attention and the current occupant(s) in the position to run the operation is replaced by a “Troubleshooter”. The “Troubleshooter” makes decisions to bring that part of the corporation into a design of the rest of the corporation.

CONCLUSION: Corporate Puppets! The people of Michigan actually elected a C.E.O. rather than a Governor to run the state as if it was a profitable branch of the bigger corporation. Who is acting like a Socialist, Communists now?

In defense of his conduct, the Governor says “You did elect.” You elected “me” and the State Legislature gave me the authority to “Appoint”, so I appointed. Since I am elected, this fulfills any requirements of an elected government.

I am compelled to ask, “If anyone buys-into (supports/believes) the above arguments of the Governor, I must ask; did you receive ANY education on the history of our country at all?”

May I quote the Declaration of Independence? Our Declaration announcing the original 13 Colonies are now 13 States all part of a new country called the United States of America. The Declaration was democratically voted upon, approved by all the new 13 States. The Declaration specifically defines tyranny, identifying a long list of rationale, conduct that the Colonists had to submit to. The items identified, does not indicate any priority of what was the conduct most dear to the people at the time; rather each individual person may identify a different item listed of a tyrannical government he/she would state was most important to them in the Declaration of Independence.

“He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those PEOPLE WOULD RELINQUISH THE RIGHT OF REPRESENTATION IN THE LEGISLATURE, A RIGHT INESTIMABLE TO THEM AND FORMIDABLE TO TYRANTS ONLY.” (emphasis added)

“He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; GIVING HIS ASSENT TO THEIR ACTS OF PRETENDED LEGISLATION:” (emphasis added)

FOR IMPOSING TAXES ON US WITHOUT OUR CONSENT:” (emphasis added)

FOR ABOLISHING THE FREE SYSTEM OF ENGLISH LAWS IN A NEIGHBOURING PROVINCE, ESTABLISHING THEREIN AN ARBITRARY GOVERNMENT . . . INTRODUCING THE SAME ABSOLUTE RULE INTO THESE COLONIES: — FOR TAKING AWAY OUR CHARTERS, ABOLISHING OUR MOST VALUABLE LAWS, AND ALTERING FUNDAMENTALLY THE FORMS OF OUR GOVERNMENTS: — FOR SUSPENDING OUR OWN LEGISLATURES, AND DECLARING THEMSELVES INVESTED WITH POWER TO LEGISLATE FOR US IN ALL CASES WHATSOEVER.” (emphasis added)

The above is verbatim quotes from our Declaration of Independence. We are a Revolutionary established Country and Government. Our ancestors defined “tyranny” for you, defined the freedom they gave their lives for you to have, gave you ample rationale for insurrection and revolution against a tyrannical government.

The information above being accurate, I must ask “Where is the Michigan Revolution?” Why is there not arrests being made violating our sacred and guaranteed rights? Why are there no impeachment proceedings?

THAT WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE TO THESE ENDS, IT IS THE RIGHT OF PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT, AND TO INSTITUTE NEW GOVERNMENT, . . .” (emphasis added)

. . . ACCORDINGLY ALL EXPERIENCE HATH SHEWN, THAT MANKIND ARE MORE DISPOSED TO SUFFER, WHILE EVILS ARE SUFFERABLE, THEN TO RIGHT THEMSELVES BY ABOLISHING THE FORMS TO WHICH THEY ARE ACCUSTOMES.” (emphasis added)

The above verbatim quotes from our Declaration of Independence places specific conduct into your hands, “We the People…” or are you “We the submissive to corporate authoritarianism…” The question really rests with YOU! Armed with this information, you should have already known, what are YOU going to do about it? Or, should we change our Constitution to reflect our submissiveness to corporate rule stating “We the Corporations…”

“YOU ARE EITHER PART OF THE PROBLEM, OR PART OF THE SOLUTION”!

Taxes Pay For War

TAX A SOCIETY TO PAY FOR A WAR? THIS HAS BEEN THE WAY OF SOCIETIES AND GOVERNMENTS THOUSANDS OF YEARS PRIOR TO TODAY!
The American Colonies were taxed to pay for the French/Indian War. The U.S. Colonies were taxed to pay for the Revolutionary War. The same with the War of 1812. The first Income Tax was levied during Pres. Abraham Lincoln to pay for the Civil War. The Civil War income tax ended just after the end of the Civil War.
The thought of not building government funds to pay for a war was simply a fact of life, no person would consider otherwise.
The First Permanent income tax was argued and pushed hard by President Theodore Roosevelt, but his term ended in 1909. Congressmen who did not support the First Permanent income tax were “voted out of office”, so the official bill starting the First Permanent income tax was signed into law on March 1913, by President Woodrow Wilson. Page 166 of the Act under section II states “. . . a tax of 1 per centum per annum upon such income, except as hereinafter provided;” in Subdivision 2 states “. . . of every individual an additional income tax (herein referred to as the additional tax) of 1 per centum per annum upon the amount by which the total net income exceeds $20,000 and does not exceed $50,000, and 2 per centum per annum upon the amount by which the total net income exceeds $50,000 and does not exceed $75,000. 3 per centum per annum upon the amount by which the total net income exceeds $75,000 and does not exceed $100,000. 4 per centum per annum upon the amount by which the total net income exceeds $100,000 and does not exceed $250,000. 5 per centum per annum upon the amount by which the total net income exceeds $250,000 and does not exceed $500,000, and 6 per centum per annum upon the amount by which the total net income exceeds $500,000.”
Please think a moment, when we went to War against Afghanistan and then Iraq, Congress did no allocate money. The President simply put the wars on our “Credit Card”. You want to know WHY we have a huge debt now? Simply look at the Billions of dollars spent monthly on the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
YOU ARE LIED-TO EVERYDAY FROM THOSE IN CONGRESS! You make decisions and see where your ethics takes you. Would you reduce Food Stamps? Welfare? Unemployment? “Kick-em while they’re down”, is that you? “I am not my brother’s keeper!” Is that you? If so, then we should not have a military at all, no Law Enforcement, no regulations that the water you drink is clean, the food you buy, you can eat, no education for anyone? The list goes on and on.
Is that you? Corporations want to kill Social Security and Medicate because they pay “matching funds” as you pay intothe same.
People are screaming about what they are told and what they are told is LIES!
