  1. We have been ignoring the main problem for what is wrong with our Country. We change Presidents every four years. We should change the House and Senate as often but, we don't. Many are never voted out though they should be. I think we need to begin DEMANDING from our House and Senate that they pass laws that make it mandatory that no one will serve more than eight years. The ones who have already served eight years will retire. Also, after serving eight years, they will not be entitled to life long pension payments. They cannot run for neither House nor Senate sooner than another eight years have passed. These people are supposed to be serving us. They are not. They ignore us.
    Our Declaration of Independence mandates that we hold them accountable and if they do not serve us, we are to replace them. We HAVE TO DEMAND THEY PASS A LAW FOR TERM LIMITS IF WE WANT ANYTHING CHANGED. OUR HOUSE AND SENATE ARE WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR COUNTRY AND WE NEED TO CORRECT IT. MAKING THEM PASS LAWS GOVERNING THEMSELVES WILL TAKE A LOT OF INPUT. ARE WE READY FOR IT? I AM. I HOPE I'M NOT ALONE. AMERICANS SURE ARE RELUCTANT TO VOTE THEM OUT. DUE TO APATHY, I THINK. WE COULD HAVE AVOIDED THIS PROBLEM LONG AGO IF WE'D VOTE THEM OUT. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO WOULD BE WILLING TO SERVE IF GIVEN A CHANCE. IF THEY DON'T PERFORM WELL, VOTE THEM OUT! LET'S TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK! THE DOWN SIDE OF THIS IS THAT THERE ARE A FEW GOOD
    ONES WE'LL LOSE. SADLY, THEY'RE NOT IN THE MAJORITY.

  3. I don't support any thing but our US Constitutional rights. Our government got so far in debt that I hope all hell breaks loose and we go back to the US Constitution, that our elected official take an oath to support. We need to fall flat on our face, to make our government pull their heads out of the tarter sauce. We need to not only audit the Federal Reserve but the whole Federal Government.
    We need to get back to basics and how did Bush get away with being a dictator. Many people think we have a two party dictatorship. Maybe they can't remember the oath of office they take or have CRS "Can't Remember Shit". I've lived a good life and am a true patriot ready to die to regain my constitutional rights. I say "Live Free Or Die".

  5. Hi All,

    I have always voted as an Independent. This year I registered as a GOP because it is the only way my vote could be counted in the Florida Primaries since Florida is a closed state in primaries...you vote only or the candidates in the designation you are registered with...

    This year is a real battle..so here are my views...

    The fact that Ron Paul is not running in 48 States for the Presidency, and was put on the Ballot in Louisiana and Montana,unsolicited by grass roots supporters, speaks volumes and leaves a lot of people a bit disillusioned. Ron Paul did not run...period...Yes, he endorsed Chuck Baldwin in a luke warm manner but that,too, leaves a lot to be desired,IMHO.

    Rather than throw away a vote, and call it voting "your conscience", isn't it better to find the candidate that is the "less bad" and vote for him, just to keep out the person who may destroy our "Democracy" by nationalizing everything via a controlled society? Have you already noticed the "Obama Two Step Shuffle" as he now widens his views on Iraq, National health and taxes? Feature this. A vote for a third party candidate, other than for Ron Paul had he run, is truly merely a protest vote and not meant to change anything. It's like a child wanting a candy bar/ice-cream/hamburger, etc., and not getting his way. What does he/she do? He/she throws a tantrum....sometimes.

    Isn't that what many are doing? Voters and non-voters? The alernative is to try to change a Party. The GOP will either win by a very slim margin or get trounced soundly. No party can "lose its way", betray its fundamental principles and still stay in power. What happen to the "Reaganites?" Where have they gone?

    Under George Bush I & II, the GOP has lost its way. It has become a party of war mongers, picking on little countries, while sidling away from the "Big Boys." On top of that, the GOP has lost its conservative principles, straying from the Constitution, and has become a party trying to "Out Democrat" the Democrats by spending big money [which we don't have], waging war, getting involved in people's lives at every turn ( instead of hands of), keeping the Federal Reserve, IRS, FDA, USA, supporting Codex Alimentarius, and all the other Agencies that have hurt and are hurting Americans.

    Under Bush II, The GOP has even increased Big Governement growth at every turn, plunged us into unimaginable debt, and left our borders defenseless, in favor of NAFTA, the UN...Now the "Rescue Plan" is in effect and is designed to bring other Central Banks to our shores by getting the American taxpayers to pay foreign holders of Subprime paper, and even allow foreign scientists in other countries to "share" in Tax payers' funding of their scientific "shared" research! [Thanks to Presidents Clinton and G.W. Bush.]

    Ron Paul, for his part, has not left the Republican Party and is up for re-election of his Congressional seat. That should be a hint to all. If he doesn't want to run for the Presidency and chooses to stay in Congress as a Republican, shouldn't we understand the message?

    In our two party system, whether we like it ot not, there is power and money. No third party has ever won recently, ( Lincoln was the last, with about 40% of the vote, back in 1860)... It's a different ballgame today with the huge amount of money it now takes for a candidate to stay in the race.We had better figure out wich way to go. Little guys have no hope.

    Ron Paul did give us hope but he refused to run after he was probably told to quit. [Now that is only my speculation. Any news on this?] He could have stayed in the race, seated or not, and could have tried to maintain his pledged delegates all the way to the convention. That would have made a resounding statement and maybe would have led to a compromise on the party platform...????

    While I agee with the the Constitutional principles , I think it is better to work at the grass roots level, as GOP people, and take control of the local GOP chapters where possible. This may lead to a true "revolution" within the GOP and get it back on track, or, at least, get some conservative thinking back into the party. It's called balance...

    This election will see either a clear victory for the Democrats, in which case the GOP will have to re-think their strategy, or a squeaky win for the GOP, in which case they will still have to re-think their strategy.

    Ron Paul will win his sat by a landslide ( 70%+) and that along with a potential GOP defeat at the top of the ticket, or just a whisker of a win, will send out a clear message. We are then in for some big trouble either way, because if the Democrats win, they will "revolutionize" everything to the left, but if they lose, they will feel threatened, betrayed and cheated. That is how politics is and we better get back to reality and work within a party framework.

    Is it so hard to outsmart the "Old Guard" in the GOP, especially when their policies have wrecked the Party and America? I think not because a lot of them will want new leadership after this election. Ron Paul is a spiritual leader now and has to lead the way in finding a person who is ready, willing and able to work within the framework of the GOP, with Constitutional views. It back to the drawing board.

    If the GOP win, where does Ron Paul fit in? He is definiteley the seasoned GOP voice of sanity...

    Hats of to all Third Party candidates for their effort, but except for voicing a platform that resembles the Conservative element of the GOP as it used to be and should be now, where are they going, except to protest? It is better to work from within, rather than to look in from without. Fingers crossed!

    Ciao and God Bless all whose heart is in the right place, EMC

  6. Hi All,
    Vote out the ones who voted for this "Bail Out."
    They did not listen to the overwhelming majority of Americans who flooded their offices with a "Unified Message to Vote "No" to the "Bailout," aptly called a "Rescue Plan" by these nefarious tainted individuals.... The whole USA heard it, but not Congress...Is it any wonder that their approval rating is under 10%, and that's being generous!

    You can find your Congressman's voting record on this issue by clicking on: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2008/roll681.xml/

    What makes these "Congresspeople" think they can spend all kinds of money foolishly, against the wishes of their constituents, the voters who put them in office? Aren't the voters suppose to be the bosses?

    If you agree, then act like any boss who would want to save his business...Fire the x@#?&*x#@...(pardon my French)...culprits. Your ratings and business will go up!

    The old adage, "If you play, you pay," holds true here.
    The time has come to make these worthless individuals pack their bags, go home, and try to find honest employment.

    Just give them a "Second and Final Chance" to hear your voice loud and clear. Do it at the ballot box! After all, its your Constitutional Right to do so If you don't act now, when will you ever act? "Do it for the kids' and for ourselves!"

    Good luck and good voting...it may be our last chance to send the best repeat message ever..."Thanks, but 'No' Thanks. "

    Ciao for now, Mike C

  7. Hello Jerry:

    Honestly, I think the depression we are entering into is the least of our problems - as is the assinine bailout that they tried.

    I believe they are just trying to keep things propped up for as long as they can.

    I wouldn't worry about it (the bail out). I won't work. It isn't working. It didn't work. That is why they are talking about more money and Brenton Woods II. Printing money is the problem not the cure and it only makes the crashes worse.

    It is hard to think of a crash worse than that of 1929!

    I don't like it as much as you, but I'd take some time to watch www.ChrisMartenson.com/crashcourse watch #16 first. I'd be thinking what if rather than they shouldn't have. I'd be thinking what things could be like and what you could do to make things go better for your family...

    As for freedom: “A democratic society requires a stable and effectively functioning economy. I trust that we and our successors at the Federal Reserve will be important contributors to that end.”

    - Alan Greenspan, 1996

    I think I know which end he was referring to :(

  8. Sherman: I understand the way the gold standard works and how our economy functions on a day to day process. This is the same argue- ment my wife and I were having today before she left for work. I also know if we let this companies fail then it will damage our economy, but we as free people have to have a voice, the government will continue to rape and pillage if we don't speak up and be heard!!

  9. Huh? Jerry, I think you misunderstood me.

    Your last post is a preach to the choir.

    Yah might want to read the link I sent you, I think it is your answer as to why they did what they did.

    Hint: It ISN'T about credit crisis's (according to his own words --- I would read it as the author bankrupted us and now the new guy has diagnosed the cure as the disease and is finishing us off.)

  10. Sherman:
    If my business gets in financial trouble the government is not going to bail me out and this is acceptable to me because if I, as a business owner partake in activity's that are going to harm my business then I shouldn't be running it in the first place!! So why again should we bail out business's that continue to this? This makes no sense to me what so ever!! When you reward people for doing bad things they will continue to do bad things!! We as a country should not pay for stupid peoples mistakes!!! So Sherman, I do agree that we need big business, but we should not reward them (like we have AIG) for the stupid mistake's they make!!
