THE BILL OF RIGHTS of The United States of America

leave a comment »

FROM THE BILL OF RIGHTS INSTITUTE

 

The first 10 amendments to the Constitution make up the Bill of Rights. Written by James Madison in response to calls from several states for greater constitutional protection for individual liberties, the Bill of Rights lists specific prohibitions on governmental power. The Virginia Declaration of Rights, written by George Mason strongly influenced Madison.

One of the many points of contention between Federalists and Anti-Federalists was the Constitution’s lack of a bill of rights that would place specific limits on government power. Federalists argued that the Constitution did not need a bill of rights, because the people and the states kept any powers not given to the federal government. Anti-Federalists held that a bill of rights was necessary to safeguard individual liberty.

Madison, then a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, went through the Constitution itself, making changes where he thought most appropriate. But several Representatives, led by Roger Sherman, objected that Congress had no authority to change the wording of the Constitution itself. Therefore, Madison’s changes were presented as a list of amendments that would follow Article VII.

END

 

The Bill of Rights was written to protect Americans from tyranny(cruel and oppressive government or rule).

All governments become tyrannical; including democracies.

Over time, government no longer serves the people but exist only for their own sake: to take power and benefits from the people for the government.

Protect The Bill of Rights to protect YOU from government.

ISSUE — GOVERNMENT WASTE

leave a comment »

The federal government alone wastes over a trillion dollars each and every year.

The government does this in so many ways.

–  Programs, agencies, departments, etc that are unnecessary

–  Programs, agencies, departments, etc that are too big for their purpose.

–  Paying too much for goods, services and labor; should pay no more than business pays.

–  Paying elected officials too much in salary and benefits.

–  Inefficient and inefficacious operations.

–  the combination of all of the above.

With the appropriate changes, the federal government could realize huge savings while improving the services provided to its constituents.

One Way To Classify Government Actions

leave a comment »

Governments actions can be classified by

–  The Smart Choice

–  The Popular Choice

–  The Politicians Choice

 

The Smart Choice is the one guided by intelligence and experience.

The Popular Choice is what the people want.  This is the same as children wanting candy, cookies and ice cream for every meal;  makes them happy but very bad for their health.  The difference is that in a democracy everybody has to have the same meal.  Everyone is affected by the choice.

The Politicians Choice is what the politicians want.  This is what benefits them and who cares about anything or anyone else.

Most choices made by government are The Politicians Choice which is sometimes influenced by The Popular Choice.

This is NOT good/beneficial for the nation.

The people are selfish and stupid, wanting things that are not good for themselves or the nation.  There are some citizens that are neither selfish or stupid; they do not care and as such are not involved in the political process.

The politicians are incompetent and/or corrupt.

The above two facts are a major reason The United States is going down hill faster and faster every day.

Politicians Need Unsolved Problems

leave a comment »

Politicians want the nation to have as many unsolved problems/issues as possible.

More problems means more job security.

If all problems/issues were solved/resolved, politicians and government would have nothing to justify their existence.

Politicians and government are NOT improving the nation.

Year after year citizens pay taxes and the government spends the money; in fact, the government even borrows money, in addition to the taxes, to spend.

The government never pays any of the borrowed money back.

Still, the problems remain.

As the politicians/government are not solving any problems, why does the nation/citizens need them?

The problems are not hard to solve.

The politicians are totally incompetent and/or corrupt.

ISSUE — INCOMPETENT AND/OR CORRUPT POLITICIANS

leave a comment »

Politicians are incompetent and/or corrupt.

This is easy to prove.

Are the nation’s problems being solved or increasing?

Increasing  —  Incompetence

Are politicians making promises to get votes?

Promises they will not and cannot keep?

Promises that are not good for the nation?

Yes, Yes, and Yes  —  Corruption

These politicians, both Democrat and Republican, need to be out of office; many of them should be in prison.

CORRUPTION — Securities And Exchange Commission(SEC)

leave a comment »

Found on the Internet and edited:

In recent months, the Justice Department and the New York Attorney General’s Office have trumpeted their alleged “crackdown” on Wall Street. JP Morgan Chase, for example, agreed to pay $23 billion in fines in 2013. And Bank of America has recently settled for a $16.7 billion “fine” over mortgage abuses. That’s in addition to a $9.5 billion BoA fine levied by courts in March. (All tax-deductible as “losses,” naturally.)

Of course, being admissions of criminal guilt, you might expect some jail time, too, but I’m not holding my breath on that one, and neither should you. Even so, this proves that our government is impartially enforcing the law, right? After all, this isn’t chump change.
It’s Not About Who Gets Charged … It’s About Who Doesn’t
Not quite. A recent study by the London Business School (LBS) examined more than 7,300 instances when U.S. corporations issued significant corrections to their financial statements between 1996 and 2006. Such restatements typically trigger Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement actions, because they often imply internal accounting, share trading and other shenanigans.

The LBS study cross-referenced these restatements with campaign contributions and lobbying expenditures by the firms and their executives. It found that “politically connected firms are on average less likely to be involved in an SEC enforcement action, and face lower penalties if they are prosecuted by the SEC.” Specifically, firms that increased their political contributions by $1 million over five years cut their chances of being prosecuted in half.

Why would the supposedly impartial SEC enforce the law so lopsidedly?

The LBS study suggests that it’s all about the SEC’s fear of political consequences when choosing enforcement targets. The more money a firm has donated to key lawmakers, the more likely it is that those lawmakers will become upset by SEC prosecution, leading them to try to punish the agency by reducing its budget. “The presence of an established, public relationship between the firm and key politicians could be sufficient because the SEC might be aware of the increased costs of initiating an investigation against such a firm,” the study says.

A 2013 Project on Government Oversight research report found that since 2001, more than 400 former SEC officials have taken jobs representing firms facing SEC action. The LBS report found that companies that employ ex-SEC lobbyists “experience a larger reduction in the probability of enforcement and in penalties than those that do not.”

Definitely, the SEC has to pick and choose its targets. But surely they’re targeting the worst violations, such as the pay-to-play scandal, in which Wall Street firms bribe state and local politicians to give them pension fund business? After all, the SEC established an unambiguous rule banning Wall Street firms from donating money to politicians who give those firms contracts to manage public pension money.

A major investigation early this year into donors associated with 43 financial firms managing New Jersey pension funds, including vampire squid Goldman Sachs, found that they have spent a total of $11.6 million on contributions to state politicians, including Gov. Christie’s election campaign and the New Jersey Republican State Committee. Many of these contributions came either just before or just after the Christie administration awarded the firms massive pension management contracts.

That’s in direct violation of the SEC rule, but there’s been no mention of an investigation. Indeed, the SEC has prosecuted just one case under the now three-year-old rule.

From 1973 to 2009, the financial sector’s share of domestic corporate profits climbed from 16% to over 40%. Donations flowed to Congress and hundreds of SEC officials became rich shills for Wall Street. So when the U.S. economy’s day of reckoning came in 2007-2008, the only policy options adopted — indeed, the only ones on the table — were those that bailed out America’s fat cat financiers. The rest of us were left to suffer.

END

This is just one example of government corruption.  Corruption has spread through our government like a fast growing cancer.

This cancer will destroy the nation and YOUR family.

Are you going to let this happen to the nation our forefathers founded?

ISSUE – INFRASTRUCTURE

leave a comment »

Abridged definition from Wikipedia:

Infrastructure typically refers to the structures that support a society, such as roads, bridges, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, telecommunications, and so forth, and can be defined as “the physical components of interrelated systems providing commodities and services essential to enable, sustain, or enhance societal living conditions.”

Infrastructure would also include airports, rail lines, and bus routes.

Without a high quality infrastructure, a nation is handicapped in all other areas; economy, education, environment, crime, health care, etc.

Infrastructure is the foundation of society.

A weak infrasturcture means a failing society.

The nation’s infrastructure is in very poor shape.

America”s society is sinking fast.
