The Difference Between A Democracy & A Republic

By definition, a republic is a political unit governed by a (charter), while a democracy is a government whose prevailing force is always that of the majority. Perhaps one of the difficulties in defining these two words "democracy and republic" stems from the fact that many people consider them to be synonyms, which they are not; they are no more alike than an apple and a banana, and yet they are often used interchangeably.

The difference between a republic and a democracy lies in the ultimate source of official power. In the case of a republic, it lies with a (charter); in a democracy, power lies with the rule of the majority, so government can change quickly, if enough migrants enter the country, the majority will rule, no matter what the (charter) or Constitution states. For an up to date close up of this, you can get healthcare shoved down your throat that is full of illegal language and against our charter, but the majority of (politicians) rule in a democracy (their decision does not have to be the will of the PEOPLE). You can get a majority of thugs, against the will of the people to ruin life as we know it in America in a democracy. As a Republic, through our charter, we have certain inalienable rights from our Constitution and Bill of Rights that no group should be able to tamper with. Slowly the progressive's are trying to close the chapter of our Republic and to convince the PEOPLE, that we should only focus on democracy.

The names "republican" and "democrat" are names that may be considered to characterize Republic or Democracy. A Republic view of government, as in a Republican, used to be the same as those who founded our Republic. A Republican started out to be for the Republic and got lost in the power and money grabbing, deal making attitude of congress. Then a Democrat’s view, being solely that of democracy, was one who has a centralized view of government (called democracy) with ever changing direction toward the popular ideology, slowly forming a monarch. Adding to the confusion is the fact that there are different types of democracies. In a representative democracy, citizens elect people to represent their interests in the government,( albeit the politicians often change after elected ), and these elected representatives determine how issues are decided, (not the People), (which seems to reflect the Dems in America). Nancy Pelosi is a great example of this: with her famous statement: We must first pass the bill before we read what is in it. Democracy represents absolute power, and with that, the popular statement is, absolute power corrupts absolute.

In a republic, people may vote for their representatives, but the state’s responsibilities are limited, because they are clearly bound by a (charter) that the federal government should not enter into. Freedom is realized by the willingness of the people to live by the dictates of the (charter), which we start out doing from the beginning. The republic’s charter protects the individual’s rights and assures they may not be changed by the elected state or local officials; and certainly not the federal government.

The detailed organization of the government of a republic can vary widely. In most cases, the head of state, as it is in France for example, is referred to as the President however it is a monarchy. In republics, the head of state is always appointed as the result of either a direct or indirect election. In fact, most countries that still have a monarchy ARE democracies! In the case of some republics, such as Switzerland and San Marino, the head of state is actually a committee of several persons in aggregate. Republics can be led by a head of state who retains many characteristics of a monarch, and in some instances, the President may rule for the duration of his life; so the (charter) is the most important document to decide on, in the beginning, to determine individual's rights and long term governance can never be tampered with. Remember these words and ask yourself what happened to the word Republic.

I pledge allegiants to the flag, of the United States of America, and to the “Republic”, for which it stands, (not Democracy) one nation under GOD, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all.

The Gold Secret: The Chinese are using up their dollar reserves buying goods and services

The Chinese are using up their dollar reserves buying goods and services with them, knowing that the value of the dollar is falling and wanting to get rid of as many greenbacks as they can. Nations are purchasing gold and silver. The Fed keeps printing money as if it were going out of style. Something is going on that your government does not want you to know about. Very few journalists have written about it and little or nothing has appeared in the mainstream media. The story could be one of major stories of our time.

Western powers have tried to destroy gold as a backing for currencies for many years; Nixon took the US off the gold standard. Few know who the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, known as SCO really is; Few have been listening and few have been interested in what their mission is and what they have been up to. Some of the members are large oil producers and some, like China, are large oil users. Some have very large US dollar surpluses. As well, some are large commodity and gold and silver buyers. In fact, members are in a great part responsible for driving these prices higher. It is debatable, but I believe there is a conscious effort to accumulate gold and silver, dump dollars and to back their foreign currencies with gold, crumbling the dollar.

China and Russia are both large gold producers and for a number of years have been buying up domestic gold and silver production, so that it never reaches the market and does not affect prices. If anything the absence of sales tends to push the markets higher. As a matter of fact Russia and India are visible buyers. Even Iran with its oil surplus recently announced that they had purchased 340 tons of gold. Their recent gold purchases are very significant as affiliate members, which have access to the present and ultimate direction of the group. You might say buying gold has been a protective effort to shield members and close observers from the problems generated by dollar policies. They are accumulating gold, as many have been worldwide, for the past ten years, but particularly over the past few years.

This buying, for protection, has served to thwart the efforts of US policymakers, the Treasury, other central banks in Europe and the Fed, from being able to continue the blatant suppression of both gold and silver prices. The malefactors, except for forays into derivatives and futures, which are transitory, have lost control and suppression of gold and silver prices, and it is only a matter of time before all visages of any control will be visible. Since 1988, in August when Present Reagan signed the Executive Order creating, “the President’s Group on Financial Markets” and the subsidiaries that have grown out of that policy, that the Treasury won many if not most of the battles.

The SCO in part changed that and now they and the public are winning the war for a fair and free gold and silver market. The current class action lawsuits, including RICO, are a testament to the market manipulation in silver, which is finally coming to an end. HSBC and JPMorgan Chase, the latter that is the major owner of the Fed, are going to be finally prohibited from rigging these markets. Their officers all belong in jail, but elitists never go to jail; they pay fines, and keep right on robbing the public.

Other SCO members and observers are accumulating gold as well, be it in smaller amounts. We might add that other nations observing Russia and China and their gold purchases are buying as well. These participants must believe that there could be a return to sound money; otherwise they wouldn’t be gold buyers. Buying gold is certainly preferable to holding US dollars, which have consistently fallen in value versus other currencies over the past ten years. If I am elected president, we are going to stop the huge federal spending, reduce the size of government, return power to the states to govern private business and people and, take our US dollar off the GOLD standard and back it by our STRONG free economy and if you want to import to our country you will be subject to the same taxes and guidelines as US business and never again have wild irresponsible spending that has come very close to destroying our country. Progressives are working toward the destruction of our county to force a New World Order that does not have the United States of America on top. Vote for me in 2012, I will not rest until I right these terrible wrongs.

There is no question more and higher inflation is on the way, as the Fed gets into QE 2. You can also bet that QE2 will not be $600 billion as they lie to you about, but more than $2 trillion. Inflation is already showing up in food, petroleum products, and airline fares and in many other items that we use every day. As usual the government says there is little or no inflation. Even competent economists are still using government’s bogus figures. What can they be thinking of? They know what is going on. That means we are embarking on the highest inflation rates in US history. Thus far the undertow of deflation has been superseded by government banking and Fed aggregate creation. The Fed, in order to subdue deflation and such spending has to always overshoot the inflation they create, so that they can be sure that deflation cannot take hold. This money and credit is in the process of working its way through the economy, spreading inflation as it winds its way through.

The only investors who are being afforded protection are those who have invested in gold and silver and commodities. That is less than 2% of the American population.

The Fed’s promises are not worth the paper they are written on. Ben Bernanke will print money until he cannot anymore and we have hyperinflation. That is because he has no other choice. He has no way out and he knows it won’t work. Tragically, this is where we are headed and there is no way to stop what the elitists have put deliberately in motion without a true leader who is not afraid to take on every issue; just give the opportunity by voting for David Tippie.

The same errors committed during the Great Depression of the 1930s are being repeated and economists, including Mr. Bernanake, know they do not work. Yes, the Fed contracted money supply and when they let it loose again, it was too late for it to be in anyway effective.

Next come tariffs as an outgrowth of: currency wars; interest and dividend penalties on the inflow of hot, inflationary dollars and retaliatory tariffs as a result of losing 8.7 million jobs and 430,000 businesses over ten years to free trade, globalization, off shoring and outsourcing.

At the root of all this is that the Fed is supposed to be saving the US economic and financial structure. They are not doing that, they are saving the banking system and Wall Street instead and these are the miscreants that caused the problem in the first place. The result of this policy of zero interest rates and easy money is that few are saving.

There you have it, planned destruction. Is it any wonder the SCO members and observers are buying gold on every dip and will not stop doing so until they run out of dollars! To have an impact on this we must have a strong leader, one who is not looking to look good just to get re-elected but a leader who loves this country and is willing give his, including his life if need be to save it from this pending disaster as well as many others; you are reading my platform and you know that we need tough leadership, that we certainly do not have; David Tippie is that leader and I am asking for your vote.

The Federal Reserve System (also known as the Federal Reserve, and informally as The Fed) is the central banking system of the United States. It was created in 1913 with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act, largely in response to a series of financial panics, particularly a severe panic in 1907. Over time, the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System have expanded and its structure has evolved. Events such as the Great Depression were major factors leading to changes in the system. Its duties today, according to official Federal Reserve documentation, are to conduct the nation's monetary policy, supervise and regulate banking institutions, maintain the stability of the financial system and provide financial services to depository institutions, the U.S. government, and foreign official institutions.

The Federal Reserve System's structure is composed of the presidentially appointed Board of Governors (or Federal Reserve Board), the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), twelve regional Federal Reserve Banks located in major cities throughout the nation, numerous privately owned U.S. member banks and various advisory councils. The FOMC is the committee responsible for setting monetary policy and consists of all seven members of the Board of Governors and the twelve regional bank presidents, though only five bank presidents vote at any given time. The responsibilities of the central bank are divided into several separate and independent parts, some private and some public. The result is a structure that is considered unique among central banks. It is also unusual in that an entity outside of the central bank, namely the United States Department of the Treasury, creates the currency used.

According to the Board of Governors, the Federal Reserve is independent within government in that "its decisions do not have to be ratified by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branch of government." However, its authority is derived from the U.S. Congress and is subject to congressional oversight. Additionally, the members of the Board of Governors, including its chairman and vice-chairman, are chosen by the President and confirmed by Congress. The government also exercises some control over the Federal Reserve by appointing and setting the salaries of the system's highest-level employees. Thus the Federal Reserve has both private and public aspects. The U.S. Government receives all of the system's annual profits, after a statutory dividend of 6% on member banks' capital investment is paid, and an account surplus is maintained.

Although, under current regulations, all depository institutions are required to maintain reserves against transaction (checking) deposits, the reality is they don't. The purpose of bank reserves is to absorb losses and add stability/liquidity to the financial system in times of crisis. The “vault cash” banks use to satisfy reserve requirements is useless in absorbing losses because they are indispensable for banking operations (think ATM cash).

In summary, today most depository institutions are satisfying their entire reserve requirement with this vault cash, which they hold to meet the liquidity needs of their customers and would hold even in the absence of reserve requirements. For these institutions, reserve requirements are effectively non-existent.

How did we get to the point where US banks are satisfying their “reserve requirements” with ATM cash?

First, the Federal Reserve has cut reserve requirements to the bone over the last thirty years.

In 1990, the reserve requirement on all non-transaction accounts (savings, CDs, money markets, etc…) was reduced to zero. Removing all reserve requirements on non-checking accounts has never happened before in over a hundred years. Meanwhile, the requirement on transaction deposits (checking accounts) is 10 percent, which is near the legal minimum.

However, the lowering of reserve requirements by the fed doesn’t explain how reserve requirement fell below “vault cash” (less than 3% of a banks assets). Something more was needed.

Deposit reclassification is an accounting trick, used by virtually the entire financial sector, which allows banks to eliminate nearly all their reserve requirements. Deposit Reclassification splits a checking account into two separate subaccounts, a transaction (checking) subaccount and a non-transaction (savings) subaccount. This distinction only exists on the bank’s books: you will never see these subaccounts on your bank statements.

Deposit reclassification means that, at any point in time, most of the money in American checking accounts sits in invisible savings subaccounts. These savings subaccounts pay no interest, but allow banks to avoid reserve requirements. The public is completely unaware of this financial engineering.

By using deposit reclassification, the entire financial sector is already operating without any reserve requirements; this is going to come to a halt in David Tippie’s administration.

There is only one restriction on deposit reclassification: banks must disclose it to their customers. These disclosures could be in the form of a statement stuffer or buried in the terms and conditions when opening a checking account. As an example of a disclosure about deposit reclassification, Citibank explains how its checking accounts are maintained; For accounting purposes, all Citibank consumer checking accounts (Regular Checking, Citigold Interest Checking, Interest Checking and Basic Banking Account) consist of two sub-accounts; a transaction sub-account to which all financial transactions are posted; and a holding sub-account into which available balances above a pre-set level are transferred daily. Funds will be transferred to your transaction sub-account to meet your transactional needs. For Regular Checking and Basic Banking Account, both sub-accounts are non-interest bearing. For Citigold Interest Checking and Interest Checking, both sub-accounts pay the same interest rate.

Transfers can occur on any business day. Transfers to the holding sub-account will be made whenever available balances in the transaction sub-account exceed a preset level. Transfers from the holding sub-account to the transaction sub-account will be made whenever transaction sub-account balances fall below a predetermined level. Because banking regulations limit the number of transfers between these types of sub-accounts, all balances in the holding sub-account will be transferred to the transaction sub-account in the sixth transfer in any calendar month.

Both sub-accounts are treated as a single account for purposes of the client’s deposits and withdrawals, access and information (ie: your statements), tax reporting, fees, etc.

JPMorgan, Bank of America, and the rest of the banking sector are also big users of deposit reclassification. Check the terms and conditions of your checking account. Odds are 99 percent that you too have one of these "two sub-accounts" or what the industry refers to as: Frankenstein monstrosities.

In a banking system with no reserve requirements, everything becomes a systematic risk because financial institutions do not have any buffer to absorb losses. Even the failure of a small bank becomes enough to bring down the entire financial system. The system is not only broken it is a giant train wreck waiting to happen.

Savings and Loan Crisis 1980’s and 1990’s

Realize that the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s and 1990s was absorbed in a large part by bank reserves. The buffer provided reserves helped limit the cost of bailouts to 105 billion. Today, no such buffer exists, and the entire brunt of the bank losses is being transferred to taxpayer. The lack of any reserve requirements helps explain why current bailouts seem so enormous compared to those of prior banking crisis.

FED-Federal Reserve is aware of the scheme

The Federal Reserve is completely aware and complicit in this scheme. In order for a bank to begin using deposit reclassification, it first has to obtain Federal Reserve’s "no objection." So the Federal Reserve not only knows of the practice, but has also OKed every single deposit reclassification program.

FDIC, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is aware of the scheme.

The FDIC is aware of the practice too. They have what they call a Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program.

Laws requiring banks and other depository institutions to hold a certain fraction of their deposits in reserve, in very safe, secure assets, have been a part of our nation’s banking history for many years. The rationale for these requirements has changed over time, however, as the country’s financial system has evolved and as knowledge about how reserve requirements affect this system has grown. Before the establishment of the Federal Reserve System, reserve requirements were thought to help ensure the liquidity of bank notes and deposits, particularly during times of financial strains. As bank runs and financial panics continued periodically to plague the banking system despite the presence of reserve requirements, it became apparent that these requirements really had limited usefulness as a guarantor of liquidity. Since the creation of the Federal Reserve System as a lender of last resort, capable of meeting the liquidity needs of the entire banking system, the notion of and need for reserve requirements as a source of liquidity has all but vanished. Instead, reserve requirements have evolved into a supplemental tool of monetary policy, a tool that reinforces the effects of open market operations and discount policy on overall monetary and credit conditions and thereby helps the Federal Reserve to achieve its objectives.

According to the fed, “the notion of and need for reserve requirements” has “all but vanished”, because the Federal Reserve stands ready "as a lender of last resort, capable of meeting the liquidity needs of the entire banking system.” Absurdity after absurdity… Did it ever occur to anyone at the fed that having to prop up “the entire banking system” with liquidity (as it is doing today) wasn’t a good idea? They are certainly aware that it puts the Tax Payer on the hook without their knowledge or consent.

Why didn’t the Federal Reserve just lower reserve requirements instead of allowing checking accounts to be turned into an accounting freak show?

Because it couldn’t! The Federal Reserve would have needed an act of congress to lower reserve requirements below 8%.

Why did the Federal Reserve bend the rules so far to allow banks to escape reserve requirements?

June 1993’s Federal Reserve Bulletin explains:

Requiring depositories to hold idle, non-interest-bearing balances is essentially like taxing these institutions in an amount equal to the interest they could have earned on these balances in the absence of reserve requirements. There you go! The fed let reserve requirements become a joke to eliminate the unfair “tax” on depositories (ie: the banks now receiving trillions in taxpayer bailouts). It is SUCH a good thing that the fed was on the ball and had its priorities straight about protecting the American people.

If I am elected president I will use the bully pulpit to pass a bill officially lowering reserve requirements to zero and make it illegal for banks to re-classify checking and savings accounts. This would end the farce of deposit reclassification (and hopefully deal a deathblow to this industry which has profited by weakening our financial system). Furthermore, there would be no adverse impact to eliminating reserve requirements of US banks, as they already don’t exist. Then I would begin the slow process to make the banking system become more accountable again, by slowing increasing their reserve back to the original 10 percent, where they could sustain another crisis as they had done with the Savings and Loan Crisis. Again, I need your support to get me elected in 2012.

From bondage to spiritual faith, to great courage, back into bondage.

From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.

October 15, 1747 to January 5, 1813 lived Alexander Fraser Tytler, Lord Woodhouselee, who was a Scottish-born British lawyer and writer. Tytler was also a historian, and for some years was Professor of Universal History, and Greek and Roman Antiquities, in the University of Edinburgh

In his Lectures, Tytler displayed a cynical view of democracy in general and representative democracies such as republics in particular. He believed that "a pure democracy is a chimera," and that "All government is essentially of the nature of a monarchy." In discussing the Athenian democracy, after noting that a great number of the populations were actually enslaved, he went on to say, "Nor were the superior classes in the actual enjoyment of a rational liberty and independence. They were perpetually divided into factions that ultimately created a ranking for themselves under the banners of the contending demagogues; and these demagogues maintained their influence over their partisans by the most shameful corruption and bribery, of which the means were supplied alone, by the plunder of the public money." Who among us does not see this happening today?

Speaking about the measure of freedom enjoyed by the people in a republic or democracy, Tytler wrote, "The people flatter themselves that they have the sovereign power. These are, in fact, words without meaning. Who among us does not relate to these words to reflect what shallow meanings there are when we speak of our freedoms today, which is developing more toward dictatorship, under the cloak of democracy? It is true those of past, as we today elected governors; but how are these elections brought about? In every instance of an election by the mass of a people, is through the influence of those governors themselves, and by means, which are the most opposite to a free choice, by the rapid corruption and bribery that takes place. But those governors once selected, where is the boasted freedom of the people? The people must submit to their rule and control, with the same abandonment of their natural liberty, the freedom of their will, and the command of their own actions, as if they were under the rule of a monarch."

Tytler dismisses the more optimistic vision of democracy by commentators such as Montesquieu (a French philosopher ) as "nothing better than a Utopian theory, a splendid chimera (organism), in other words a descriptive of a state of society that never did, and never could exist; a false republic not of men, but of angels. But these angels for "While they are man are being instigated by the love of power--a passion and it is an act that is commonly seen by us even with the inferior animal kingdom—he (like the animal) will seek personal superiority in preference to every matter of a general concern; or at best, he will employ himself in a ploy of advancing the public good, as the means of individual distinction and elevation (keeping his elected office): he will promote the interest of the state from the selfish but most useful passion of making himself considerable in that establishment by answering with entitlements which he labors to aggrandize for his constituents, to insure power for him is absolute. This is the true picture of man as a political agent."

That said however, Tytler does admit that there are individual exceptions to the rule, and that he is ready to allow "that this form of government is the best adapted to produce, though not the most frequent, yet the most striking, examples of virtue in individuals," paradoxically because a "democratic government opposes more impediments to disinterested patriotism than any other form. To surmount these, a pitch of virtue is necessary to get elected which, in other situations, where the obstacles or less great and numerous, is not called in to exertion (in other words only grease the wheel sqeaking). The nature of a republican government gives to every member of the state an equal right to cherish views of ambition, and to aspire to the highest offices of the commonwealth; it gives to every individual of the same title with his fellows to aspire at the government of the whole."

Tytler believed that democratic forms of government such as those of Greece and Rome have a natural evolution (life expectancy) from initial virtue toward eventual corruption and decline. In Greece, for example, Tytler argues that "the patriotic spirit and love of ingenious freedom ... became gradually corrupted as the nation advanced in power and splendor." Tytler goes on to generalize: "Patriotism always exists in the greatest degree in rude nations, and in an early period of society. Does any one of you see the arrogance of our government as meeting this description of being “RUDE”?

greatest difficulties ... but in a state of ease and safety, as if wanting its appropriate nourishment, it languishes and decays." ... "It is a law of nature to which no experience has ever furnished an exception, that the rising grander and opulence of a nation must be balanced by the decline of its heroic virtues."

Taking a moment to ponder these words; it operates with the greatest force where it meets with the greatest difficulties----does anyone see why manmade disasters are introduced to us like the swine flu for example? Keep the people fluster, confused and even alarmed about something (can anyone say: Don’t let good crises go un-exploited?). What about the decline of its heroic virtues. (Haven’t we been giving in to the atheists and taking prayer and any mention of God out of our schools? We are being lead to do these things, under the disguise of being politically correct.

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury through their corrupt elected officials; if someone else has it, it does not matter if they worked for it, it now should belong to you, attitude. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to lose and corrupt fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years.

However a Republic that has had a charter that truly protects the rights of its citizens has never been through the test of time. Our republic is being hijacked from us today. Our republic is slowly deteriorating and being robbed from us, right under our noses because the majority of the people have been duped into thinking that a republic and a democracy are the same and that cannot be farther from the truth. It is being robbed from us by the shallow promises from the political self interests of the elected democracy corrupt politicians. If we the people can resist the ploy of promised favoritism from the corrupt leaders then we can sustain a life where freedom really means free (a Republic guided by its charter-which we the people have given our lives to protect in our distant past). We must stand our ground and fight once again, united and not continue on this road to bondage and dictatorship, which is the pathway we are allowing our country to be heading toward. Some are referring to it as, sending our country over the cliff and we must not stand for it any longer.

Creating A Conservative Candidate Platform For The Next Election!

No person’s insistence of an idea makes it engaging until it meets with some approval and scrutiny of their peers. This discussion is an attempt to form an organization that has a plan with merit that without doubt, each issue has a in-depth discussion to seek the middle and this requires professionals in each area of expertise to validate the thought process, through their professional opinion or scrutiny with a description of that opinion or scrutiny. Adding additional nuances that improve on the original intent is commendable. This attempt to build an organization is to help insure like-minded people who are willing to become part of this organizational team, will have a venue to help further the agenda , which will design a complete platform for any conservative candidates.

This is a format for in depth consideration of collective ideas and not for complaints from opposing party affiliations about the issues being discussed in this forum. To start the discussion I have provided eleven issues, which is not to say that there are not more, it just means I have put together 11-and would like to begin the discussion there, one issue at a time and see where it leads. Due to the length of the material it must be placed in blog format. If you would like to contribute, you can do so on the blog or, in the LinkedIn format. But each time define the topic and then contribute with your opinion.
The eleven issues are:

1. Political:
2. Economics
3. Legal
4. Accounting
5. Military
6. Medical
7. Social economic
8. Scientific
9. Education
10. Movement Planning
11. Productivity

1. Political: A snippet of opinion: It seems that the thoughts of most Americans are consumed with the thought that someone else is responsible for them and constantly look to others for answers and try to find a likely person to blame for all transgressions they suffer. It seems like a spell has been cast over America and many walk in a fog of ignorance. It is time to regain our values and the senses to deliver our-selves from those transgressions. The organization would like to offer some food for thought on this subject. It will suggest first the questions and then provide answers.

2. Economist’s snippet: Review an immediate answer for the short term and then a plan for the long term. For the short term there are approximately 500,000 below poverty American’s in this country who could be offered a chance to earn an $80 thousand dollar 401-K for their retirement, that would consist of the following: Everyone at poverty or below and at age 65 years or older, or those with medical conditions preventing them from ever working, would be offered assisted living and that physicality would be awarded the 401-k money for 4 years of care. At the 4-year mark an additional appropriations plan for that group would be established. Everyone else at or below poverty level who is capable of working would be entitled to the program provided they receive training for job, get placement; utilizing the training programs that are now funded by government. After graduating they must hold a job. They must contribute a minimum of $10 dollars per month to the $80-thousand dollar 401-K starting within 2 years of graduating from their training.

The funds to pay for this program will be provided in suggestions of the group.

3. Legal: A snippet: No attorney would be entitled to any of the settlement money the state and county would pay the prosecution and defense attorney’s fee. Attorneys would bid on that representation, low bid to win. Any physician causing death to a patient would not be allowed to practice further, provided guilt of negligence was proven and the court issued a judgment. The next step would be down from the death benefit received by any family for other complications caused by doctors or staff at hospitals; No doctor could practice after they have been found guilty of causing two lesser improperly performed procedures where guilt was found and a judgment was awarded to the patient. No doctor or hospital would be required to purchase insurance of any kind and any judgment awarded to any patient would be paid through the fund created in each local area. That fund will be defined by the group.

4. Accountants: A snippet: A team of Accountants to examine leaving the tax cuts of 2008 in place but adding the following condition. These tax cuts remain as they are for people and companies who outsource jobs at a rate of 0% to 10% outside the United States. All other companies who outsource more than 10% will not be allowed to have the tax cuts. Any company outsourcing more than 10% and or showing no taxable income will pay a flat fee of 10% of their gross. A family of one male 18 years or older who is his own sole provider and does not live with any other person will pay no income tax up to $30,000 per year provided he has not fathered a child or children. If he has fathered a child or children he will pay an amount equal to 15% of his yearly income to the guardian of that child and in the case of multiple children 15% for each child will be paid to the legal guardian of those children. A women who has had a child out of wedlock will pay no income taxes up to $30,000 per year and will be required to set up a 401-k account inaccessible to, or by anyone except the child and only then when the child reaches 18 years of age, who is using it for university tuition or, when that child reaches the age of 65 years.

5. Military experts: A snippet: Americans have a military that is so down sized and ill supplied and ill trained that they are sent into battle without proper armor and are expected to provide tasks, which they have not been trained to perform; America has the most advanced robotic technology on earth and yet we have not produced lead vehicles to provide reconnaissance on the ground that can guarantee safe passage for the troops that follow. Yet America announces the ability to retrieve rocks from far away planets. Further, we will surround any country who wishes us harm or our allies with a missile defense system and that includes the countries Obama has seen fit to remove.

6. Medical experts: A snippet: Medical professionals will formulate flat fee based hospitals. Hospitals that pay the best scale to the staff according to their experience that would attract the best talent who themselves could also teach, which would inspire promotion within. Starting from the medical Chief of Staff and going down. The physician holding the Chief of Staff title would receive a yearly salary that would equal the industry standard per year provided every member of the staff treated every patient properly and timely. There would be a monetary penalty for any derelict of duty up to and including termination of any staff member including the Chief of Staff. An environment of productivity would be rewarded and dereliction would be penalized. Illegal aliens would not receive medical care.

7. Social economic professors and majors: A snippet: Hate has been brewing between cultures in the United States that makes a breeding ground possible for outsiders who wish all Americans harm. It is time to change society beginning with these following things: To rebuild a society that is strong again with values that all choose to adopt and are not dictated. The FCC will no longer be the guardian of American morality. If smut is present, then Americans will advise their families accordingly and take morality back into the home and around the dinner table. The responsibility for family’s morals begins with each parent; and when the parent is unwilling to take aggressive action with their child, aggressive action will be levied.

8. Scientists: A snippet: Americans will correct the biggest injustice ever created in the world.

America has been lead by the minority billionaire families of the world to this point. That brotherhood has created and presented strange bedfellows, which has not surprisingly provided opportunity for the same privileged few. The reason America is still tied to fossil fuels and combustion engines is money and deals made behind closed doors that provide this narrow elitist group opportunity. The concern of greenhouse gases is not a matter of concern if and when it interferes with the production of money. When this problem is fixed with hydrogen for cars and other alternative fuels the rogue countries that mean America harm will suffer in face of a dying market. Our use of oil will be seen in the future as an outrage to every American that they allowed such rape to the planet in order to build the bank accounts of the few. The problem has to be approached from the short term to help manage for the long term. The first order of the day with group contributing support; there is going to be a 500 million dollar reward paid to the person or company who can develop a device that can be adapted to the cars and trucks, which are now owned by all Americans. This device will extend the gas mileage to a minimum of 50 miles per gallon for the biggest gas-guzzler and up from there. This technology developed by an individual or company will be tooled and manufactured with a grant from the federal government fund. This fund is described by the group.

9. Top educators, Teachers and Professors: A snippet: Academics will once again be America’s prime objective. To promote students ahead of their academic level because of the way they play a game or their ethnicity is over. The teachers and professors of the United States of America are going to be a coveted highly rewarded profession. The impersonators who may hold these positions now are finished with the degradation of our students.

10. Persons with organizational education and movement planning individuals who have the ability to use the Internet and other media to raise money for the organization to spread the word are needed.

11. Productivity, hard work and commitment will be rewarded regardless of your culture. Criminal activity, scams and free rides will not be tolerated, from the government officials down and they will not go unpunished. New hope and integrity will be instilled in Americans.

Socialism Is Not Going To Fly In America!

Hugo Chavez has artfully demonstrated that he can take from those who produce money and send a few bucks to the 80 percentile of poor in his country and maintain control of that country. Poor continually vote him into office while the educated few see his mischief. The far left in this country are honing their Chavez characteristics. For those in this country who will turn a blind eye to these misdeeds, are called politically correct. The town hall meetings are sternly showing that America and Americans are fed up with the rhetoric and change is definitely coming, just not what Obama and his socialistic group he surrounds himself with. Our country was founded on these same town hall principals; Nathan Hale said: I am sorry I have only one life to give for my country. The majority of Americans are true and love our country and do not horror what is taking place with those who are in control to date. In Washington D.C. there is powerful and popular lobby called the Congressional Progressive Caucus which, at one time, openly espoused the principles of socialism and publicly signed onto the agenda of the Democratic Socialists of America. Check it out for yourself, they do not represent mainstream America and certainly not me.

Socialism At Its Finest, The Fall Of A Nation

Does anyone see the similarity of Dr. Adrian Roger’s quote back in 1984 and today’s administration?
“Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.”

Our Social Security System

Franklin Delano. Roosevelt (Terms of Office March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945), a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He Promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary,
2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program,
3.) That the money the participants elected to put Into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,
4.) That the money the participants put into the Independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into
the General operating fund, and therefore, would Only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Since many Americans have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month -- and then finding that they are getting taxed on 85% of the money which they paid to the Federal government to 'Put Away for them' -- you may be interested in the following:

If you recall, 1958 is the first year that Congress, not President Eisenhower, voted to remove funds from Social Security and put them into the General Fund for Congress to spend.

If you recall, it was a democratically controlled Congress.

From research, Congress’s logic at that time was that there was so much money in Social Security Fund that it would never run out or be used up for the purpose it was intended or set aside for.
Question: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax Deduction for Social Security?
(FICA) withholding?
Answer: The Democratic Party.
Question: Which Political Party took Social Security from the Independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?

Answer: It was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat, Term of Office: November 22, 1963 to January 20, 1969) and the democratically Controlled House and Senate.

Question: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

Answer: The Democratic Party, with Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. (Al Gore) Vice President Term of Office: January 10, 1993 to January 20, 2001 who cast the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US.

Question: Which Political Party decided to start giving Annuity payments to immigrants?



Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is, uninformed citizens believe it!
