There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

If Things Were Right

In the vision of our founders as is demonstrated by the careful word crafting in the documents that we now call Founding Documents, the explicit limits to federal government are plain. In all of them the rights to all were equal, not that all are equal. One who works for wages or starts their own business or trade is not equal to someone who feels those businesses and trades and workers all must pay support for them because they are entitled. Charity is voluntary not mandatory.

Freedom is something you must both earn and and pay for if you are to keep it. The rights of others cannot be infringed upon by you as you would have your rights not be infringe upon by others, without your wanting and willingness to take action to defend those rights. What right did you give to the federal government to use your tax dollars to give to foreign nations? And at what point did you feel obligated to fund "entitlement" programs for people that are not citizens or plain and simply lazy Americans who use excuses instead of brains or physical dexterity to at least earn their own keep?

Somewhere in our not so distant past we began to lose our rights. Property rights, individual rights, privacy rights, and most Constitutional rights were all systematically taken away and there wasn't hardly a heated public debate to defend those rights. The right to determine where our tax dollars are spent was something that was much simpler to understand when the Constitution limited taxation with apportionment and a budget had to be approved by the Representatives and the People of the many States were heard through the voices of those elected to that post of service. They aren't our leaders at all, they are our followers. If they are not following our lead then we need to remedy the problem.

If things were right in this country, our currency would be stable regardless of what other nations currencies are worth. It would based on a standard weight of tangible asset whose worth is based on real industrial value and not a formula that requires a four-year degree in Economics.

If things were right we would think $100.00 as a weekly wage was doing pretty good. Fuel prices would be less than 25 cents per gallon and a brand new American built automobile would cost less than $5,000.00 with all of the optional extras.

If things were right, schooling would be the total responsibility of the parents and not the state. Home schooling, charter schools, and eventually no schools at all. All the-libraries in the world made available on DVD and online for the world to gain knowledge. The classics as told be those who wrote them and not just the opinions of those teachings written by others. Discussions and debates can take place at meeting places or online since that enables communications across the continents.

If things were right we can easily transition from fueled vehicles into electric powered vehicles with technology that even today is making that possible but at a premium price that few can afford to pay.  Sound and stable currency, lower taxes and easing of regulatory obstacles that add unnecessary fees and certifications to manufacturers would make employment opportunity always there for a younger generation to go out into the world to seek their dreams and their goals.

If things were right I would have work to do and would be self-sufficient instead of desperately trying to produce the rent for this month. I also would be typing less and talking more as the host of an online talk show. But reality is not the same as being right.

If things were rights there would be simple treatments to cure cancer and other illnesses that are so often fatal. If only things were right.

It is the right and the patriotic duty for all American sovereign individuals to voice their grievances to those who represent them in government for remedy. And that remedy begins when we cast our ballots to choose just who will represent us and carry forth our wishes to a compliant and not a complacent federal government.

Democrats and Republicans as political parties have taken away out ability to be fairly represented. Those who do not embrace  and expound the party ideology are removed from candidacy with support by the privately-owned major media, who spoon feed the public with the party choices while they ostracize the nominees who do not toe that party line.

I have worked for and have been involved with government at all levels and feel there is no level that is not corrupted by lobbying and funding from special interests. While the media will point fingers at individuals, groups and corporations, the problem gets worse and never better.

The next presidential election in 2012 will be noted as the most important one in the history of the United States of America. It will determine whether America will rise from the ashes like a phoenix, or crash and burn and become absorbed by the global elitist who have been taking over the world through their banks and the corporations they created.

If we keep voting the same party people into office, we will lose our sovereignty and become slave labor to the statists.

Marriage: Is it Legal? Or Is It Lawful?

I am constantly being bombarded with email and "snail" mail letters telling me to support laws that will define marriage as that union between one man and one woman. It is apparent that this issue is important to many Americans. But I would like to offer my thoughts on the subject and perhaps it will assist others in seeing this issue in a different light.

When I got married, I was REQUIRED to obtain a legal marriage certificate from the State of Pennsylvania. But my wife and I also were married according to our faith(s) and so in effect, I have two separate documents to declare our marriage. One in which we declared our love and devotion to the Creator and to the Universe and the other (with appropriate blood tests and fees) in accordance with statutes of the State of Pennsylvania.

And I feel that this extremely volatile debate over the "definition" of marriage can be settled in a few paragraphs.

Under many religions, it is not permissible for two members of the same sex to join in "holy matrimony" as that joining is based on the act of reproduction as the primary purpose of marriage. But in the legal sense of marriage, it has to do with sharing legal responsibility with respect to contracts, income(s) and taxes.  The former is mutually exclusive from the latter and that is as it should be, as the government has no lawful authority to make that former religious point comply with statutory law, as that would be a violation of the First Amendment in a very specific sense, that it would enforce a religion's definition of marriage on all people, regardless of their personal liberties to choose their own life and life style.

In the Mormon faith, a man may have several wives, but that is against the statutes or "color of law" in America. I have a solution:  For the purposes of legal recognition, one person may be "assigned" to the role of "spouse" as defined in tax laws and contract law. and the others are spouses under their common religious beliefs.  Will that work for you? Or change the statutes so as not to violate the practice of one's faith just because it is different than the majority of others. Polygamy harms no one. Should not a man who has multiple wives, be allowed to claim them and his children all as dependents for tax purposes? After all, he is taking on the burden of providing for them all, why punish someone who is responsible and the reward so many others who are not responsible for themselves?

So to settle the debate, I offer this: Any two (or more) people may join in a legal contractual union which will hold them all responsible for and to the terms of that contract. In other words, if one falls ill or dies, the other(s) would share the burdens and rewards that are requisite in all spousal relationships. As a compassionate and loving human being, isn't it wrong to deprive a person bereaving the loss of a loved one, simply because they are of the same sex?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Therefore, to establish any law regarding the religious institution of marriage is a violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution.  Every State that issues a certificate or license for marriage is also in violation of First Amendment Rights.

It is incumbent upon the individuals who choose to join themselves in a loving bond to determine what rights and privileges are to be enjoyed by that union and not the province of government to make that determination for them.

Charitable: Government: With Other People's Money!

Has it ever occurred to you that if you didn't have such high taxes, you can afford to donate to the cause(s) that you have the most compassion for? Instead of sending money to foreign countries (who mostly hate us anyway) you and your neighbors could get together and help that family in your neighborhood that faces eviction or foreclosure? As a child I witnessed such kindness in my hometown.

With all of the political rhetoric from both dominant parties who say they want to take care of Americans in need, why are so many more Americans  in need, without jobs or homes? Maybe it's because our elected Representatives send all of those dollars to Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, and on and on. Add to that the "charity" called bailouts and stimulus given to banks and corporations that are "too big to fail.

If that money was  distributed evenly to every American citizen, everyone would have a decent home and drive a new American automobile,  could afford college tuition for our children, provide health care for all of our families and have a retirement account that  Congress won't pilfer.

Many of my friends tell me that there is nothing we can do about that except "hope" that a new administration and Congress with make the "changes" to our mutual benefit. As I recall, the last Presidential Election , won by Barack Obama on a platform of hope and change a promise of openness and transparency is how we arrived here in the present.

Well, I hope you are all happy with that change. Just remember that it will take more than change to pay all of your bills. You will need dollars too.

The Lost Tune: Something to Fret About

It seems to me, if what was contracted with an Indian or Malagasy supplier was a finished block of wood of such and such a size which was produced by an Indian or Malagasy Worker and then shipped, the DOJ case will be dismissed, eventually. If not, The American Manufacturing industry using imported rose wood or ebony is doomed to failure. The supplied block of wood is a finished product, by definition of contract specification. The use to which the purchased product may be subject to after payment and receipt is determined by the purchaser.

Otherwise, manufacturing, fabrication, and artistic craftsmanship have taken a heavy and fatal blow. The sources of rare or exotic wood not domestically grown and available in the United States would be outlawed for every industry using such wood. The furniture industry, the guitar industry, the American made piano and harpsichord industry, and in addition to these the manufacturers of salad bowls and kitchen utensils will fall to predation by over zealous actions of DOJ thugs in hob nailed Jackboots pounding the streets carrying sub-machine guns in a silly effort to uphold a law that was poorly crafted to benefit a particular group which has self serving interests and goals.

During the interim people lose their jobs, US made product is lost to the customer, the company operating in the US loses revenue, companies leave the US permanently taking jobs with them or close, foreign companies lose revenue because they can not sell product, revenue is lost to the US, all this and more at a cost in many millions in expense to the tax payer, because some dolt at DOJ wants to make a name for himself.

I do understand both Andrea Johnson's, forest campaign director for the Environmental Investigation Agency, a nonprofit advocacy group and Jameson French's, CEO of Northland Forest Products and the former chairman of the Hardwood Federation, a trade association, positions on the lack of jobs in America and who are very concerned about the rampant and completely insane clear cutting of American forests that has all but ended the American Timber Industry. Perhaps, they would do better in setting up a National Trust for the Billions upon Billions of board feet of Ebony, Indian Rose Wood, and maybe Teak forests left in the United States. I can only wish them great success in this environmental and job conserving venture.

If I were truly rich and wished to display my contempt for such government stupidity, I believe I would order a couple dozen chords of Indian Rose Wood and some of that long lasting Ebony and use it for firewood, or does the DOJ expect ashes to be shipped from foreign shores. What a bunch of horse feathers!

By the way, very nice instruments and they sound just right!

The "Fixing America" blog began because of problems seen in the way that government was being conducted which occurred before the last Presidential election in 2008. It started on a shoestring budget with plans for a streaming audio talk show that would allow a platform for a more rapid spread of information regarding new developing problems and solutions for older problems. This would give everyone the opportunity to actively participate and voice their opinion. This type of forum would allow for a better understanding of our form of government and how it was intended to operate.

Privately-owned major media has biases and agendas which have little in common with the American citizen except to make a profit by providing entertainment. In general, they do not provide any type of balanced reporting without first stacking various biased points of view and then play those off against each other with controlled questioning. Because these outlets are not supposed to influence or sway opinion, they avoid any discussion of solutions which might be proposed by the citizenry and instead, in many situations, interview the very people responsible for creating the problem.

The "Bail Outs" of big banks and corporations have gained nothing for Americans, in a family sense, to make up for the losses suffered by Americans but made billions for the  banks and corporations  that were bailed out at the expense of American citizens and for generations to come. Americans have suffered through all the "stimulus" packages that promised relief and supplied nothing but very limited and temporary help while adding much more debt for the citizens of the nation.

A streaming audio discussion forum would have the potential to identify problems faced by Americans and openly propose and discuss real solutions to correct foreseen problems. These real solutions could then be brought to sponsors in state legislatures and the Congress.

Many Americans are busy with work and holding their family together, and do not have the opportunity to research what they see and hear in the privately owned major media for accuracy, balance, or truth. To inform and educate would be a service to my local community and my country, to report what I research regarding government, economics, energy, health care, and medicine, and how that effects all of our lives is the concept of this website.

I have noticed that readership is on the rise, so I trust that I am presenting topics that are of interest or important and benefit everyone. You are welcome to comment, and of course, I encourage everyone to share it with your family and friends.

I placed a donate button in the post and ask that if you can, please make a small contribution to enable me to continue and possibly begin a streaming audio discussion forum.

My campaign has a list of voters in these upcoming important primary and caucus states.

You’ll just logon to my campaign’s website, call through the names as you are able and then enter information into our system.

My campaign will provide you with a script and everything.

With our state-of-the-art Phone From Home system, making calls to targeted voters has never been so easy.

But it’s critical that as many of my supporters sign up to make calls as possible.

Even if you only have a few minutes each week, participating in our Phone From Home program is the best way YOU can help elect me the next President of the United States.

And you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to do so!

So can I count on you to sign up to Phone From Home

The Challenge of Change

Barack Omama ran for the White House on a platform of change, but the reality of that is that he gave us changes that have devastated the economy, devalued the currency, destroyed the housing markets, and left an adjusted unemployment rate that is well into double digits.

But the President alone only sets the standards by which his policies are brought forth, and that is through the legislative branch of federal government. Both Obama and Congress have failed to uphold their oaths of office and instead have ripped the Constitution to shreds with legislation and dictatorial Executive Orders that are rapidly eroding the solvency of the United States of America.

The problem is not centered in the debates and ideologies of the two major parties, but in the people who time after time, vote for candidates from those same two parties. With very little exception, both Democrats and Republicans promise lower taxes, reduced spending, smaller government, and all manner of entitlements to their voters, and then taxes are raised, spending increases, government expands, and entitlement are reduced, at the expense of the nations tax payers! . Doesn't that enrage you as much as it does me?

It seems blatantly obvious that the privately-owned media is also supporting this sham, by biasing their coverage of the candidates, and even ostracizing them when it seems that their policies are based on the Constitution, and then they are labeled too extreme and radical for the nation. And what makes the press so knowledgeable and informed that they know what's best for the nation? I would think that someone like a Bill O' Reilly would make a suitable Representative or Senator, and would win easily. No, they are not interested in taking on that responsibility themselves, they would rather back a candidate that will make good television shows later when they succeed or fail in office.

But the challenges we all face run deeper than what is regurgitated for daily TV and radio. Alex Jones and Glenn Beck are too extreme and radical for the likes of Excellence in Broadcasting, and their favorite son, Rush Limbaugh will attest to that. But while the privately-owned media are thumping for the Rick Perrys and the Mitt Romneys, with an occasional nod toward Newt Gingrich, they all ignore Ron Paul, who, by any standard of worth, stands far afield from all of the rest, but not for the reasons they expound.

Dr. Paul's reputation is that of "Dr. No" in Congress for he never fails to give a "nay" response to any bills that call for tax increases or that in any way violate the Constitution. And for that he is labeled as a radical and worse.

It seems to me that concerned Americans made it clear in 2010 how they feel about government, and more specifically, the representatives they choose to manage the affairs of the nation. But somehow the Republicans think that it is an attack on the left-wing liberals and a thumbs-up for the Republican party itself. It was NOT.

We are fed up, figuratively and literally with the federal government. We are tired of blame and excuses offered instead of actions that produce results. Albert Einstein said, "The epitome of insanity is doing the same thing, over and over, and expecting different results." Isn't that what we all do when we pick between two parties?

Ron Paul ran as a Libertarian presidential candidate but even the Libertarian Party nominated a different person.It would not surprise me if Ron Paul received more votes as a write-in than the Libertarian Party choice. But it was apparent that Ron Paul was ignored by the media and the Republican Party, which he has served in Congress as a member of for 12 consecutive terms.

The media wants to portray this election as about jobs, health care, economy, foreign affairs, Medicare and Social Security. Even media favorite and crony capitalist Rick Perry called the Social Security system a Ponzi Scheme and was criticized by some and praised by others for it. Only Ron Paul told the truth, that it is unconstitutional to require all taxpayers to pay for it. Now that does not mean that you cannot have a public retirement system, it just means that it must be a choice, an option, but not a demand.

The Constitution was written with provisions for Congress to lay taxes, but those taxes must be apportioned. By amending the Constitution to allow direct taxing without apportionment, Congress now has a method by which it could match taxes to spending, thereby capable of spending more, so long as the People don't complain too much. But then we got the Federal Reserve Act and now Congress could borrow money from the central banks, and create more debt that will be paid by future generations of tax payers.

But that is only the tip of the iceberg as they say, because the Federal Reserve prints money that has no inherent value, only that which the Fed determines, and that is all based on the labor of the American People against the number of dollars in circulation. The more money there is, the more prices go up. Not all at once mind you, but after the banks and other financial institutions use it to drive up stock markets. Then the tangible assets begin to inflate as the value of the dollar shrinks. Gold costs more because the dollar is worth less, not because gold is worth more. Gold and silver were fixed assets used for currency since recorded history and was the currency used here in American until Nixon finally put the nail in the coffin of real money.

Ron Paul understands this and will return us to a currency of worth with a Congress that will support him. So the challenge we face now is not only to get Ron Paul in the White House, but to replace Congress with fresh faces, faces with backbones to make the radical changes required to restore the united States of America to the Constitutional Republic it was created to be. I would imagine that British Parliament and the Crown felt the demands of the founders were extreme and radical also. It will take extreme and radical action to restore us to the nation of liberty that is our birth right.

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,[75] that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." -Declaration of Independence

The challenge is before us. Either way, history will show the success or failure of this nation by the resolve or neglect of We the People.

It's NOT The Economy, Stupid!

The privately-owned major media would have us believe that the Presidential race is about the economy. They bounce between jobs and spending with a healthy dose of borrowing on our children's future.

There is the sidebar issues of Social Security and Medicare with a garnish of entitlements and earmarks. But all of them avoid the real issue. The issue of Liberty.

The President's signing of Executive Orders is not within the action of Constitutional authority of the president, but stems from Admiralty Law. A free and sovereign People have assigned the law making authority to the US Congress, not the President!  Mitt Romney said. “If I am elected president, I will issue on my first day in office an executive order paving the way for waivers from ObamaCare for all 50 states,” Romney wrote in an Op-Ed in USA Today, yesterday.  But we all know that he can't do that!  If Obama or Bush is any measure of action, he can. Since when can a sitting President write Law that completely bypasses the Legislative Branch? 

Why do we allow our tax dollars to finance the building of  infrastructure in foreign nations when our own is crumbling? Why do we allow two political parties to dominate the electoral process and give us a choice of the lesser of two evils? Why?

Have you come to choice yet?

What Is Money?

The People formed the government and charged it with the protection of the nation and the commerce across the seas. They gave Congress the responsibility to coin currency and set its worth. Today it seems, that most people do not know what money is.

Money is the property of the People. It represents work, in all the various forms, manufactured goods, research and development, and all forms labor. But in order for money itself to possess worth, it must be something of worth. Traditionally, money has always been made of metals; gold, silver, copper. These metals were fashioned into coins, giving the coinage inherent value. The Knights Templar were one of the earliest known groups to use the letter of credit, paper money, or script as money;  however, they gave that paper worth, by accepting the metals as deposits and guaranteeing payment in metals on demand at a Templar bank at their destination so that the letter of credit had value based on the deposit of metals.

The worth of various metals is inherent in thier industrial uses. Copper can be used for pipes, wiring, cooking (skillets and kettles,) while more valuable metals such as gold for overlays, preventing decomposition of the underlying substance, or as linings for cups and vessals to prevent reactions with liquids. Silver has been used traditionally for its medicinal value and for adornment, jewelry. Today they are used as they were traditionally and in the electronics industry. These metals have always been used in the making of coins as they are today. The founders of this republic knew and understood that principle and that is why there is no mention of paper currency in the Constitution.

Now they also were aware of the fact that transporting large amounts of silver and gold was burdensome, costly, and a security risk. So in order to have paper money that had worth greater than the paper and ink used to produce it, they also created reserves of gold,silver, and coper to back that paper currency. In that way, the worth of the monetary unit (the U.S. dollar) would remain stable, without inflation or deflation of its trade value, so long as there was an equal amount of metals to maintain that worth.

Federal Reserve Notes are NOT money. They are instruments of debt having an assigned value 1, 5, 10, 20, etc. When you work and get paid, and you receive a check from your employer, that is not money either. When you deposit that check in a bank or credit union,  the institution will credit your account for the amount received through that instrument of debt, and they in turn will issue a debit notice to the bank from which the payroll account of your employer is drawn.

But where is the worth in that money?  And what makes each of those Federal Reserve Notes worth one U. S. dollar?  The answer is nothing!  There is no worth in a Federal Reserve Note since it it is backed by nothing. Its worth is determined by the number of dollars in circulation. The private Federal Reserve and the banks that own it can print whatever number amount is requested with intrest. The Federal Reserve prints more and more paper money and then they adjust the worth because of inflation and intrest. That is the simple reason your dollar is worth less and less.

Health Care vs. Insurance

The cookie cutter candidates each have their own pet ideas regarding the reform of the health care system. In most of the scenarios privatization plays an important part.
As to privatization efforts, in almost all programs given up by the federal government the services have been reduced the quality has been lowered and overall cost to the us citizen has gone up. This is because it is no longer a service provided to benefit the citizens well being, it has been converted into a business for profit.

It is interesting to make note that as far as actual medical care is concerned there has been no change in the general downward trend in patient health. This is because the medical industry in general faced a potential collapse of the system in place, during the middle 1990's. The writing was on the wall for all to see and the medical industry moved heaven and earth to whitewash the wall and cover-up everything else they could.

One of the Bilderberg Cookie Cutters Has a plan. The plan includes an employer mandate in which businesses must either pay their employee health insurance or else pay into a government fund to cover the uninsured.

A similar mandate has already been in place in Massachusetts for over five years. Mitt Romney's splendid plan has turned into a rude awakening. As health costs have skyrocketed, the state government has asked for more and more "contributions" from businesses. During this financial crisis, the last thing America needs is yet more economic burdens on the businessmen who create jobs and prosperity.

Obama's "wonder plan" has already been found unconstitutional by several States.

Don't be confused. The cookie cutters are talking about insurance not medical treatment, care, or the cost of that care. Very little is ever said regarding the improvement in medical treatment for bacterial, viral, and fungal infections or parasitic infestations that was made during the mid-1990s. 

During the mid-1990s, a research group was investigating different techniques to clean and preserve blood supplies, other than the already proven method discovered and discarded. They were investigating techniques which had an unreliable success rate with the intention of uncovering the reason for a success rate less than 100%. 

The researchers were successful and patented their findings quickly. The simple technique and complex embodiment were presented at a medical symposium. Then a very strange and to this day inexplicable thing happened. All information relating to this new medical technique and its ability to completely kill bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and all parasitic infestations without any harm to the human patient was not heard about anywhere. 
Ten years passed and Dr. Bob Beck happened to stumble over the mention of this technique. He devised a simple device instead of the complex and costly embodiment the patent holders had envisioned and devised, and without further complication, made the entire matter public. Technique, protocol, and an ancillary self treatment device, all of this at his own expense. The information contained in an Article entitled "Take Back Your Power" available at hundreds of internet websites will allow anyone to treat themselves for the complete eradication of bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and all parasitic infestations over a period of two to four months. Herpes, AIDS, Pneumonia, Measles, Diphtheria, Smallpox, Anthrax, and whatever else you care to identify: are all curable. Or you can listen to the Cookie Cutters argue about how to solve the health care INSURANCE problem and make it profitable.

Capitalism vs. Cronyism

There is so much talk about capitalism and the free-market economics, yet it seems that quite often, the terms are blurred by the political agenda of the speaker (or writer) when opining.

As we are all well aware, China has embraced capitalism and is continuing to grow their economy, while the United States is sinking faster than the Titanic. We are supposed to be the free nation, and yet, with all of the mandates and regulations placed on businesses, we are far worse off than the Chinese communist nation, and the gap is widening.

There is a reason and a remedy. The main reason is the stifling of the markets by government regulations, and the highest tax rate on businesses in the world. Why else would companies abandon the States for foreign shores? Lower wages? Perhaps that is a reason, but not the main one. Healthcare costs spiraling out of control? Yes, that is also a factor, and the health care act that was forced on all of America played a role in the exodus of businesses to China, India and other eastern Asian countries.

But the regulations and taxes are the main reason. When New York city was bankrupted and Ed Koch became mayor, he deferred and reduced taxes for corporations and brought businesses back to the city. While I lived there, jobs were bountiful, pay was good, and the city was vibrant. Of course 9/11 played a role in my leaving there, but moving to Oregon also provided me with ample opportunity for employment at decent wages.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney would have you believe that he is a creator of jobs, as he did so in the private sector. But he also signed a health care bill that the people didn't like or want, and he was soon looking for work himself. Now he wants to bring his brand of job creation and health care to the federal government as President. I don't think so.

Rick Perry of Texas also wants us to believe that he is the right man, because he created so many jobs in Texas, when the rest of the nation was losing jobs. What he fails to say is the overall unemployment rate in Texas still increased. And most of those jobs he created were minimum wage and less, many without health care benefits.

Yet, in the past few days, only these two potential GOP nominees are getting the attention of the media. Why? Because the privately-owned major media is controlled by  followers of the Bilderberg Group.

It's cronyism at its finest!  The  Bilderberg Group's chosen cookie-cutter candidates for President, Rick Perry  and Mitt Romney, just as Obama was there choice in 2008.. Only Perry was a bit more audacious and said publicly that they are "a bunch of good guys" who want to help us. Sure they do, and I have a very nice bridge that spans the East River that I will sell you at a very good price.

Gov. Perry wants to change the Constitution because he doesn't think the Supreme Court is accountable to the people. He wants to provide Congress with the ability to override the court by vote.  Perry does not understand that the Court of the Land was never meant to be accountable to the people!  It was to be accountable to the Law of The Land and Constitutional Correctness.

The Law of  The Land is Common Law:  it is neither Admiralty Law nor is it The Law of Commerce.

The Problem is the case of Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. (1 Cranch) 137 (1803)which, for the first time, allowed the court to give itself the power to interpret the meaning of the Constitution:  to write new law in a very real way and subvert the power of making law, a legislative power. This assumed power has lead to another problem:  stacking the court with judges who have leanings toward one political persuasion or another. This has had the effect of driving our society to a more socialistic point of view. At the same time, this drives our society toward more control:  a police state.

To force the court to be accountable to the people is to subject the courts to rule by the feelings or emotions of the general populace or the people:  mob rule.

"We should take steps to restrict the unlimited power of the courts to rule over us with no accountability," he writes in Fed Up! "There are a number of ideas about how to do this . . . . One such reform would be to institute term limits on what are now lifetime appointments for federal judges, particularly those on the Supreme Court or the circuit courts, which have so much power. One proposal, for example, would have judges roll off every two years based on seniority." [Perry quote from his book.]

Lifetime tenure has nothing whatsoever to do with the decision making skill:  proper education in the Law of the Land and the Constitution does.

This proposal would allow the stacking of courts in a timely manner to more effectively aid the politicians who placed the Judges.  This would end the Judicial Branch of Government in its ability to carry out its Constitutional mandate.

Michele Bachmann claims that she represents the Tea Party Movement and that if elected President, she will follow the Constitution and revise the tax code. As a former IRS investigator and a lawyer, she should be well versed in the tax codes, but I cannot believe that she will do what really must be done to get us out of the continuous debt-based monetary system that has enslaved us since the crash of '29.

Republicans and Democrats both have fueled the fires, by increasing spending and the size of the federal government. And neither has kept their campaign promises to lower taxes, reduce spending or balance a budget. But the balancing of a budget is something that every Mom and Dad in America must do to provide for their families.

Which brings us to the most honest and ignored candidate for President, Texas Congressman and Libertarian ideological Republican candidate Dr. Ron Paul. There are many who feel that Dr. Paul is too radical, too extreme, and some that call him "looney" because of his "libertarian" ideology. Yet the people in his district keep sending him back to represent them in Congress, for decades now.  But what can they possibly know that the Republican National Committee and the mainstream media don't?

They know that this man is honest, abides by the limitations placed on the federal government by the Constitution, stands for defending America, and his monetary policies are based in common sense and sound, asset-backed currency. He is the ONLY candidate who has come out against the Federal Reserve System, calling it what it really is, a private banking cartel whose main goal is profit, at the expense of the people of this nation.

Ron Paul introduced a bill (along with Barney Frank) that would repeal the marijuana prohibition that Nixon signed into law as part of his "war on drugs."
And while Obama said that his administration would not seek to arrest and prosecute offenses in states that have medical marijuana legislation, the arrests and seizures of plants are on-going.

Congressman Paul has voted against any federal spending that places burdens on the people and the states in violation of its Constitutional authority. He has repeatedly pointed out that using the "commerce clause" as justification is not valid when it violates so many other parts of the Constitution that clearly define the rights of the States and We the People.

The rhetoric is building up. The media is narrowing the field to just Perry and Romney. But how quickly they forget that the Tea Party Movement fired a shot across the political ship's bow in 2010. That was a warning to all Washington elected representatives, that We the People are fed up and we are going to take action.

I am looking also at my state and local candidate for those that abide by the Constitution, who represent the People and not special interests, whether those interests are corporate or not makes no difference.

The summer is officially over and it's back to school time. Congress is long overdue for a schooling in Constitutional law and what We the People expect from those we elect.

We the People are fully awake now! Let the debates begin!
