I guess I understand why Dr. Paul is being literally shunned by most everyone who has anything to do with the pre-game show, but I’ve got to ask, who is going to do something, and what are they going to do?
We’ve had a bill passed “that had to be passed so we could find out what’s inside it. We’ve had the exact same game played in the last government caused market collapse, but this time with an amount equal to all the debt ever held by our Nation.
We’ve seen the obama-care bill turned out laden with extras, while the accounting of it was turned inside out, so taxes would be paying for it long before benefits Accountable to it will be disbursed. Because of this, we now are told by the Congressional Budget Office the ultimate cost won’t be the nine hundred billion, but more like one point seven trillion, and they have a long history of underestimating costs.
While this is happening, congress is voting on obama’s proposal to increase the cost of medical care for our members of the Armed Forces substantially, medical care for injuries suffered in the line of duty. People are watching their medical costs go up every month, substantially, and we are not even seeing obamacare, just the “re-adjustments in manner and means of payments”, part and parcel to making the price tag look smaller.
We have watched as the government which once was ours, has deliberately shut down industries, gone to great lengths to shut down jobs while slamming a door in one our closest, most reliable ally’s face, in denying the gas pipeline. This being done while substantial coal mining operations have been shut down, oil drilling is halted, and our president is set to give away United States, or more accurately, Alaska’s and United States territory to Russia, including substantial oil and vast mineral rights, with no return.
The man in the president’s seat has decided he can determine when The Senate is in or out of session, and when recess appointments can be made. He and his cabinet have stated he needs no authorization from congress to go to war, but can and will take guidance and direction from the United Nations or other international bodies.
Our Supreme Court has members who consider foreign law as better suited study material when deciding cases and case law, over our Constitution and our own long history of jurisprudence. While at the same time, one of the Justices was a primary actor in the assembly of obamacare, yet refuses to recuse herself from the case of the constitutionality of obamacare.
We have been told our Constitution is out dated, no longer is applicable to the law or for the purpose of “constituting a government”. Every possible excuse has been made for the utter failure of any constituted part of our government to actually do and complete its job, and yet we are told we must simply give them more time.
At what point will we decide the problem is it isn’t our government, they don’t work for us. Their purpose is not to secure our rights, but to steal them. They have no purpose in limiting their waste, but see no reason to spend into two generations into the future.
So how many are going to the polls this November with the intent to remove every incumbent? Who is going to vote on Election Day for a president who will do what has never been done since the Federal Reserve was illegally put into being? What steps are we all going to take to see our Nation closer to being back in our hands?
I have to ask, because it is becoming all too apparent, we are either afraid of the risk of taking a swing at hitting it out of the park, because that is what it will take to win the game, or we’ve decided to accept the loss for what ever each of our personal reasons may be.
When I ask why, the constant and continual response is with regard to the ability to beat the incumbent. If we can’t beat this president by deciding to stand up, take and put all our effort into fixing our very real, very tough problems, what makes anyone think another mainstream candidate is going to walk away the winner?
I’ve really got to wonder, if we can only afford to get the slightest distance away from status quo, just exactly when do we think we’re going to even begin to fix things? Does anyone believe obamacare is going away without it being thrown out wholesale, on the basis of being totally and completely unconstitutional?
