No matter which way the wind blows, the United States Congress always profits financially. Why do “We the People”continue to pay salaries plus expenses to our “elected for life” public servants? Should not these little gods and godlings pay us for the privilege to enrich themselves while playacting at “public service?” Let’s auction off their mighty and powerful positions of Senator and Congressman to the highest bidder! Apparently, Governors already do it. Why shouldn’t we do it? After-all, we are still the “We” in “We the People,” aren’t we?
Pols Gone Wild!
The Congressional tentacles of our high and mighty “servants of the People,” our elected godlings, are tenaciously entwined into the shroud of our financial demise. The latest example is Senator Diane Feinstein who saw to it that her husband’s company was awarded the exclusive rights to sell the government’s foreclosed homes of “We the People.”Senator Feinstein saw to it that $25 billion of the American taxpayers’ bailout went to pay that nice little real estate commission to her own husband. Why not keep it all in the family? $25 Billion of the Bailout to the Feinsteins. After all, that’s what politicos have been trained to do – take care of “Number One.” And “Number One” ain’t no stinking “We the People,” you can bet. That’s okay – Senator Feinstein is not the only one to do it. Look at Congressman Barney Frank.
Congressman Barney Frank was willing to let the entire American financial system go down the tubes, see retirees lose their pensions, see millions of Americans lose their homes, so that he and his lover could live like the pompous godlings they really are. The Love Triangle the Destroyed a Nation’s Financial System.

Forget Progressive Taxation! We Now Have Confiscatory Taxation to PUNISH!
Now “We the People” have turned our U.S. Tax code into a weapon to bludgeon those we dislike with egregious Confiscatory Taxes. Granted, that is not as evil as strangling those we dislike and their families with piano wire, as some outraged Americans have suggested. However, once this government’s revenge gets going strong, many will be wishing for “death by piano wire.” Those others may someday be you, yourself, when you finally do or say something your government does not like.
The United States Congress, in its villainous plan to fully implement their President’s “Dreams of His Father,” has gone far further than Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. ever dreamt. Obama wanted 100% taxation in order to “spread the wealth around.” The United States Congress today passed into law a bill to tax fellow Americans by 90% solely as revenge; soley to punish them. Why 90% and not 100%? That was merely a technicality, as Congress explained that the State and Local Taxes will take the other 10%, of course. The senior Obama, a Harvard-educated economist, wrote of his plans for Kenya:
“What is more important is to find means by which we can redistribute our economic gains to the benefit of all. This is the government’s obligation. The “means” he had in mind were confiscatory taxes on a scale that redefines the term “progressive taxation.”
“Theoretically, there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed.”
“I do not see why the government cannot tax those who have more and syphon some of these revenues into savings which can be utilized in investment for future development.”
“Certainly there is no limit to taxation if the benefits derived from public services by society measure up to the cost in taxation which they have to pay. It is a fallacy to say that there is this limit, and it is a fallacy to rely mainly on individual free enterprise to get the savings.”
Of course, we have all known about President’s Obama’s “Dreams of His Father” and Obama’s plans to implement them, as he wrote all about his father in two books. That’s where we find the above quotations. What we did not know is how eager our elected representatives would be to help Obama begin implementing the new Plan of Taxation. If you are counting on Republicans to come to the rescue and save us, forget it. Over half the Republicans in Congress voted to use the Tax Code as a weapon.
Here is one more reason why United States Senators should go to work and do their jobs, just like other Americans feel an obligation to do. Instead, we have three of those members of the Senate running about the country trying to get elected President of these same United States.
While they are running wild, not doing their jobs, the country falls apart financially. Way to go guys! $700 Billion is demanded from the taxpayers to “TRY” and fix it. It’s a good thing that most voters don’t pay taxes on the money they earn (income tax), or none of these guys would ever be elected to anything above the rank of dogcatcher.
INCREDIBLY, when one of those AWOL Senators decides to go back to work and do his job that the American government is paying him to do, to help solve the national emergency, he is condemned for not being able to multi-task.
With national leaders like we are seeing in the United States Congress, is there any wonder that there was no oversight of the financial markets? Is there any wonder the country is in this crisis? The voters elected a Democrat Congress to get the country out of war. Did the Congress do that, as they promised? NO! And they did even more damage to the national economy.
Gut the Military! Quick – Quick, Before We Fight Again!
“As President” you’re going to end the war? Well, isn’t that what all of you Democrat members of Congress promised two years ago when you were elected to a majority? Where’s the end of the war you promised then?
“It looks to me like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — the twin $1 trillion disasters — were the creation of congressional Democrats and a Democrat White House. So where are the Democrats? Why no news conferences explaining themselves?” ~~John Gibson
Well – John, two of them are running for the United States Presidency.
