The Phony ‘Fight’ And The Real Story

At the 11th hour and to the surprise of no one, right on cue, the self-proclaimed party of small government capitulated.

Anyone who remains lost in the false paradigm that there are two political parties is blind and divested from reality. There is only one party, and it is the government party.

The government shutdown that wasn’t was nothing more than so much theater. It was theater of the absurd.

The so-called compromise deal that reopened government signaled that the status quo big-spending, big-government, big-money-printing policies will continue straight through to collapse. Although a couple of politicians” took a stand” against big government (particularly against the Obamacare deathcare trap), there was no real appetite for fighting to shrink government or roll back any aspect of its increasingly intrusive power. In fact, the bill is laden with more pork than a bacon truck.

The so-called furlough of a few hundred thousand government employees became just a paid vacation for them. And in addition to a payoff to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell in the form of increased funding for river construction project and other lucre, tucked into the bill is a charming nugget of $174,000 for the widow of deceased Senator Frank Lautenberg. Lautenberg was listed as the eighth wealthiest U.S. politician in 2011 (his net worth then stood at $55.33 million), so his widow is by now no doubt in terrible financial distress. Finally, the privileged elected class and their staffs will be exempt from Obamacare, while the more mundane among us are consigned to the death system of rationing and extortion. These facts all prove the system is set up to benefit the elites at the expense of the people.

House Weeper John Boehner signaled the shutdown was all for show in his post mortem comments: “We did everything we could to get [Democrats] to the table to negotiate. They just kept saying, ‘no. No, no, no.’ There’s just no reason for our members to vote no today.” He conveniently ignored the millions of Americans who were saying no, no, no to more spending in general and Obamacare in particular.

Most Republicans, particularly Senate Republicans, had signaled their capitulation early on. The “fight” was over before it began even though some, responding to voter support for Senator Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare, at least gave lip service to the idea that they should attempt to try and delay if not defund the implementation of the deathcare system that is killing jobs and creating a part-time economy now and will be killing people soon.

The elected class and their bureaucratic enablers in the Washington, D.C., cesspool all suffer from a psychosis that allows them to lie and steal without compunction. They ginned up a crisis in order to keep Americans distracted while the Obamacare rollout collapsed, and they worked behind the scenes to craft a bill that will grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

Then they all agreed to reopen government until Jan. 16 and lift the debt ceiling through Feb. 7. Supposedly, House and Senate budget conferees are required to reach a budget deal by Dec. 13, but Washington found itself acting the part of fighting over the government shutdown precisely because there has been no budget agreement since 2009 and, therefore, no rein on government spending.

But with government funny money and phony accounting in play, a budget agreement is irrelevant. Additionally, all the sound and fury from the elected class resulted in only a 90-day “fix.” Crisis governance will resume after the first of the year unless some cataclysmic event occurs before then.

The United States was never in any danger of defaulting on the debt, because there is no real U.S. debt and there is no intention for it to ever be paid. Government can and does create money out of thin air. With this ability there cannot possibly be debt. And if there is no debt, there is no possibility of default. Until this is understood by the American people, the elected class will continue to abuse the system and use fear and confusion to rule over and subvert the will of the American people.

For proof of this, the so-called debt, according to the Department of Treasury, remained at exactly $16,699,396,000,000 for 150 straight days. Were this a true and accurate accounting number, such a thing would be impossible. The numbers are much like the green strips you carry in your pocket: Created out of thin air. But people believe this sham and the media never questions it.

In May, the Congressional Budget Office estimated the Federal government would confiscate a record $2.7 trillion in tax receipts in fiscal year 2013, which would surpass the previous record of $2.6 trillion in 2007. Yet despite this, Democrats are already signaling they want to use the budget conference to raise taxes even more to support even more spending.

The CBO also said in May that government spending is expected to hit $3.55 trillion in 2013. That represents 22.2 percent of gross domestic product, the largest share in decades.

The Federal Reserve is throwing $85 billion a month into the air. Americans remain ignorant to its effects. The stock market is irrational. It spikes on bad news, knowing that the Fed will continue throwing $85 million into the air each month for the foreseeable future.

This money benefits the banksters and Wall Street, but it is devastating the holdings of the savers and retirees.

Corrupt political and monetary fiat systems always self-destruct, as they always spend out of control. The U.S. government is engaged in the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of the world. Most Americans are oblivious. Government is stealing by devaluing the U.S. dollar. Creating these new dollars dilutes all the dollars in existence. This is economic war carried out in secrecy and under pretense.

Trust in government and its monetary system begins to give way as the facade of benevolency and democracy morphs into force, intimidation and confrontation.

The process is gradual except when the elite miscalculates and does things such as assess private bank accounts to pay for the corruption of the debt money system as happened in March 2013 on the island of Cyprus.

The increase of overt repression and intimidation — as we saw with the closing of the monuments during the “shutdown” — will alert more and more people to the crime of government.

Exchange controls are a sign of a failing regime. Chase Bank (aka JPMorgan Chase) has instituted exchange controls. Thousands of account holders received letters last week indicating they will no longer be allowing international wire transfers or cash deposits or withdrawals in excess of $50,000 monthly beginning on Nov. 17. JPMorgan Chase — along with the other “too big to fails” — is a primary shareholder of the Federal Reserve.

Then HSBC USA announced its clients will have to wait a minimum of five days to transfer funds to their own international accounts beginning Oct. 20.

These are the first signs that the collapse is getting closer. Exchange controls are emergency measures enacted to during times of economic distress and are precursors to wealth seizures by the State.

Your time to remove your money from banks is growing short. Get it out before the bank runs begin.

Protect yourself with gold and silver and stored food and supplies needed for survival. Guns and ammo are essential to own. We have very hard times ahead; but after the cataclysm, we can start anew.

    It is way past time to “FIRE” our politicians!
    We must radically restore our constitution, and shrink our way outta controlled, over bloated government. Our country won’t last much longer if we allow these idiots continue spending like drunken sailors!
    We must cut government programs like Obozocare, TSA, and many other boondoggles, waste, fraud etc. The gravy train ride they have been riding on for decades is now OVER, It will end and band aid “fixes” won’t prevent it from crashing.

    • Harold Olsen

      I suspect that the only way we are going to be able to restore our Constitution and take back our country is to revisit 1776.

      • Motov

        I suspect you are right !

        • oldhill

          Will not happen, they are hoping to turn the power off by Nov 17. This will kill millions. AND it will be a false flag event, just as 911 was. We are at the end of our age, and few will survive what is coming.

          • Motov

            I just hope there are enough “red necked” people close to DC to show them our appreciation for all they done for us!!!

            Freedom is determined by God’s truth, the written Constitution, and statutes in accordance with it… as defined by Webster and our forefathers. Lawlessness, deception, and corruption guarantees bondage.

            As stated, $16,699,396,000,000 unchanged debt over 150 days, unequivocally states all expenditures exactly matched revenue and no new debt was incurred over a five month period! Government’s excess spending to revenue ratios prove no intent to stop increasing debt or be accountable to anyone! Government’s monthly 2014 deficit “plan” is $62 billion! 5 months of it is $310 billion! Obama’s $328 billion day after shutdown
            financial hand grenade confirms undeniable probability of corrupted generally accepted accounting practices and wanton contemptuous major criminal activity
            within the executive office! It’s also clearly above and beyond the last debt-spending crisis! Clearly, the debt limit and Constitution are being mocked!

            That criminally hidden $328(?) billion debt exceeded their $253 billion 2014 expected monthly revenue by $75 billion, which says the scam is $328 billion upside down with no current added revenue to pay anything… where the scam’s dominos fell and the nation was in default, without an immediate debt ceiling increase! Yes there was a debt crisis, but it was preplanned
            and orchestrated to create debt default and national financial disaster in order to extort and obtain unlimited executive spending and debt increases. That insurrection was fanned into panic by media broadcasters that exist at the will of the FCC, SEC, and other regulatory agencies directly controlled by the executive office! Ask yourself by looking up insurrection, collusion, and treason – don’t ask a traitor!

            Instead of the executive office exposing and prosecuting the scam, the top down cry was debt interest, defense, SSI, MEDICARE, AND MEDICAID couldn’t be paid, and that would throw the nation into default and financial Armageddon…if the House didn’t give the executive unlimited immediate spending and debt increase powers… threats backed up by shutting down key areas to harm and inflame citizens. The media-government inspired insurrection is recorded from the president down to FCC controlled media bobble heads and panicked citizens in the streets.

            Federal government’s fatal flaw is all inclusive executive office power and control over spending and regulation, from “wannaspend” to requisitions,
            purchasing, accounting, payment, audit, regulatory agencies, justice, FBI, CIA, NSA, regulatory agencies, FCC, communications, and DOJ prosecution… all oath
            and duty bound to God, Constitution, and country, NOT SELF, BOSS, POLITICAL PARTY, OR PAC ! All executive employees are paid and ruled by the executive! Checks and balances requiring House control over budget, revenue, spending, and debt
            further require senate and executive approval. The legislatures have impeachment and prosecution powers. The public has power to file criminal
            complaints which is mocked by a corrupt DOJ. That leaves citizens with recall powers to remove elected officials and replace them with officials who will enforce oath, duty, Constitution, and laws thereon! We don’t need new laws because lawless officials break existing law! The House must appoint a CPA firm to audit books controlled by the executive and appoint prosecutors outside of the executive’s DOJ! We’ve reached the point where CITIZENS MUST PURGE LAWLESSNESS FROM GOVERNMENT!

            RECALL NOW! WAIT… AND NOTHING WILL BE LEFT

      • mrk

        Right bring back slavery and white male only property-holders with the right to vote. Go back to the good ole days of 1776. This is every conservative’s dream. There is only one problem, you would have to kill about 250 million Americans to enforce it. They would fight you to the death to keep their right to vote and the 13th Amendment.

        • Motov

          I think you missed his meaning, I don’t think he meant that part of history, I believe he meant for us to assert ourselves with the 2nd amendment in mind.

          • smilee

            He never said different only back to 1776 which indicated he meant all. That solution today is suicidal

          • Motov

            I believe most soldiers will NOT shoot Americans, because they would be violating their oath to uphold the Constitution. Last election showed most were Ron Paul supporters, That alone tells me they rather see the constitution as the LAW of this land.

            To tell the soldiers to shoot americans, is like telling them to kill their loved ones and family, I think most would not obey such orders. I also think many of them are not too happy with our current government. It seems too coincidental that their votes were NOT counted, due to a plane crash. I think that our soldiers may be a tad suspicious that this so called accident, may have been deliberate. I think many will side with us, because the words “government” and “criminals” are becoming more and more interchangeable.

          • smilee

            Your a fool! Wishful thinking, Your dreaming, if anyone starts shooting at our soldiers and they are given the order to fight back they will shoot!

            Have you forgotten the civil war, our soldiers will follow orders they are not the idiots you dream they are. If there are any idiots it would be those who pick up a gun and start shooting at them.

          • Motov

            You missed my point, We do not shoot at our soldiers, We shoot our politicians. We simply let the soldiers know they are most welcomed to come on over to our side and abandon our worthless government.

          • Nadzieja Batki

            smilee did not miss your point. As long as you keep talking smillee will deliberately “misunderstand” you so you will hang yourself with your own words.

          • Motov

            He already lost the argument. By resorting to name calling, and ignoring fact of our soldiers favor someone who supports the Constitution, and the fact their votes did NOT count in the last election. My heart tells me they won’t forget that. Time and time again politicians have mistreated our military veterans (Remember the Barry-cades)

            Politicians will rely on the police to protect them, and even then,..only the corrupt cops will defend them. Just watch U-Tube. How many illegal arrests had been made on our soldiers. I bet most of military will back the constitution vs our corrupt government. The treason charge will stick to the politicians, and not people!

          • smilee

            LOL You shoot at the politicians is no different than shooting at the soldiers shoot the first and the second starts shooting on you.. Are soldiers are not so stupid as to commit treason by joining your bunch of idiots.

          Are you aware of black slave owners who owned white and black slaves in the colonies and in United States? Are you aware of the impact to the family as a result of letting all “adults” vote?

        • Nadzieja Batki

          Such [expletive deleted]. You Dems/Progs/Leftists keep revisiting 1776 and keep telling us what was in the minds of the Founders, their sexual proclivities, their religious affiliations, what was in their minds when they penned the Foundational Documents.
          You are more afraid that if we could go back in time, you and your Dems/Progs/Leftists would be recognized and condemned for being the human predators you are.

        • Nadzieja Batki

          But you Dems/Progs/Leftists keep going back to 1776 and then telling us where the Founding Fathers were wrong, that their religions were wrong, that their characters were wrong, that they were sexual perverts, that the Foundational Documents they penned don’t say what they do.
          The only reason for you Dems/Progs/Leftists to do this is that you are actually afraid that the Founding Fathers were correct in the Foundational Documents they gave us. By condemning the Founding Fathers the Dems/Progs/Leftists are actually condemning themselves.

  • Harold Olsen

    There’s no doubt in my mind that the entire government shutdown was completely scripted. Very badly scripted at that. I saw a story the other day where the GOP is ready slap down the Democrats when this comes up again. What a load of BS. They’ll use the script — maybe modified a little, but not much — and then cave. The trouble is, there are some very stupid, but loyal, Republicans out there who actually believe Boehner and the other cowardly Republican politicians when they claim to have put up a good fight. There was no fight. It was as real a fight as pro wrestling is. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that. I’ve run into a lot of people who get PO’d with me for telling them that pro wrestling is fake. They actually think it’s real.

      The tea party lost all support from the rest of their party and they will not get it back in Jan so it likely will not happen again despite Ted Chuz’s desire to do so but he only has support now in Texas from his own kind and the tea party the smallest portion of the congress with power only to rant.

    Gee, I wonder why? Hey Bob, why not just give me those ‘worthless pieces of green paper’ to me? WHAAAT? But I thought you said they were worthless? Well I guess they DO have worth! Whada you know? Another lie from the Bob.

    quote: Protect yourself with gold and silver and stored food and supplies needed for survival. Guns and ammo are essential to own. We have very hard times ahead; but after the cataclysm, we can start anew.

    This says it all. Bob WANTS America to FAIL. Think about that one, patriots. Who do you call someone who wishes for the destruction of their home country?

    Article 3 section 3 US Constitution:

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort….

    This piece of advise from Bob could be seen as giving ‘…aid and comfort…” to those who would approve of rebellion against the “Washington, D.C. cesspool” , or, more specifically, the United States of America. What kind of ‘patriot’ wishes for the destruction of their own country? Even Sadam Husein didn’t want to destroy Iraq as much as Bob et al want to destroy America!!

        3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

          “Beware of FALSE prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits…EVERY HEALTHY TREE BEARS GOOD FRUITS, but the DISEASED TREE BEARS BAD FRUIT…a diseased tree cannot bear good fruit. EVERY TREE THAT DOES NOT BEAR GOOD FRUIT IS CUT DOWN AND THROWN INTO THE FIRE. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.” – Jesus Christ (Mt. 7; Jer.23)

          Unfortunately your fruits are: LIES, DECEITS, DIVISIONESS, SLANDEROUSNESS against God’s Word and Christ’s Gospel.

            16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

            Matthew 15:24-28, New King James Version

            “24 But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
            25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!”
            26 But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”
            27 And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
            28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.”

            Here Jesus is talking about “the lost sheep of the house of Israel”

            In your passage John 10:16 Jesus is talking about “other sheep” – GENTILES, who do not belong to “the house of Israel”.

            John10:7-16 (NKJV)
            “7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep … 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved … I have come that they may have life …
            11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep …
            14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and
            am known by My own.”

            16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold (a flock of sheep of Israel); them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be ONE FLOCK
            (Israel and Gentiles) and one shepherd.”

            Jesus Christ is “the door of the sheep” – the born again Christians.

            JESUS CHRIST is “the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father, except through” Him. (Jn.14:6)

            Who is YOUR “door”? Did YOUR “shepherd” gave his life
            for you?

            If only your Alma could reveal to U
            How pompously false are U
            May God forgive U
            Que Dios te perdona, Amigo mio.

            P.S. Please STOP to drag me into your STUPID game of your devilish choice. It’s a waste of time. Do you want to know the TRUE meaning de Scriptura, take Bible class.

            Dearest Alondra,

            I really appreciate your responses because I know they come from the heart rather than the mind. Just know in your heart that I am saved through the shed blood of Christ. And only through His sacrifice would I ever have a hope of being in Heaven.

            May be in that Elysian field we will meet and be able to truly shine our mutual love for Christ.

      It’s a warning dumas, you can keep your dirty paper! I’m not going out of my way to collect it, but it will still buy gold and silver, guns and food, just less every day! The warning is that this isn’t sustainable, I personally don’t care if you have your fiat for breakfast! It’s just a warning for the inevitable! And is nearer than anyone in our society knows, until now! It’s kinda like obamacare you know, if you like the keeping of worthless fiat, you just keep it Understand?

          How the Fed Has
          Funded The Leveraged Buyout of America by Big Banks

          http://www.econmatters.com/2013/08/how-fed-funded-leveraged-buyout-of.html

          In 225 years has the full faith and
          credit of the United States been held to ransom. But also never in 225 years
          has a solution been ready that can resolve this problem: the monetary reform
          bill HR2990 introduced into the 112th Congress by Dennis Kucinich.

          For the 95th time in the last 67 years, Congress
          and the President are confronted with passing legislation to raise the
          “debt ceiling.”

          What citizens should know is that our
          country can pay
          off its debt as it comes due; can put
          millions of people back to work rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure; can provide debt-free
          federal support for cash-strapped State governments, and end the so called
          great recession by putting cash in the hands of all our citizens through a
          citizens dividend. This gives small businesses what they need most – customers
          with cash to spend on their goods and services. All these things are made
          possible by the HR 2990 bill introduced by Dennis Kucinich and co-sponsored by John
          Conyers.

          http://www.monetary.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/HR-2990.pdf

          The bill accomplishes this by adjusting our
          money system from one of “debt money created by banks” when they make
          loans, to one of “money by law” created as money, not as debt, by our
          government. That power is already vested in Congress by the Constitution;
          “The Congress shall have the Power To… coin Money, regulate the Value
          thereof…” (Article 1, Section 8).

          Congress should re-introduce and pass H.R. 2990,
          The National Emergency Employment Defense Act (NEED) that Congressmen Kucinich
          and Conyers sponsored in the last Congress.

          The banking class and their economists have
          spread confusion over the nature of money.

    If you want proof that our “government shutdown” ordeal was nothing more than a phony scam by both Democrat and Republican politicians just consider this, while Harry Reid was saying he would not fund benefits for American children with cancer because the government was shut down, they never missed a payment of foreign aid to African children with aids. They never missed a foreign aid payment to all the muslim countries that hate us like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, Turkey, Bosnia, Iraq, and the United Nations. Our leaders in both parties were telling Americans “we can’t pay you or fund services for you because the government is shut down, but they continued to pay all foreign aid to non Americans right on time. Do you understand that? We were told “we can’t pay your benefits because we’re shut down” but they were not shut down because no foreign aid recipient was told they couldn’t be paid because of the shutdown. Our government kept right on sending non Americans their foreign aid money and services right on time. OUR GOVERNMENT IS FULL OF CRIMINALS WHO ARE STRIPPING US OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOM. WAKE UP AMERICA.

      You must have read a completely different article. The CBO as stated in this article estimated that the U.S. took in $2.7 trillion in taxes – not interest – last year. But the same government spent $3.55 trillion in fiscal 2013. That left a deficit of $855 billion. Next year’s deficit is estimated to be around $600 billion. It is shrinking considerably from a $1.4 trillion deficit in 2009 but it is still substantial. The U.S. government is not taking in $7.5 trillion in interest, it is in fact paying out several hundred billion in interest every year on its treasury notes and bonds to foreign and domestic holders of that paper.

    Conservatives always cave. Because despite all their “tough talk,” they are cowards to the core. Just read all the posters on this site everyday how they are going to impeach Obama, put him in Leavenworth, end his Nazi dictatorship, etc, etc., etc And what do they actually do – nothing, zero, nada. Their hysteria is only exceeded by their cowardice.

    • smilee

      Conservatives do not have enough power to impose their will but they do have just enough to muck things up and they stupidly do.Ted Cruz sure showed he had courage and he also showed he lacked any common sense as most radicals don’t it.have any.
      .

      • mark

        What you say is true in many cases. But I don’t think that Cruz displayed any particular courage. He spoke for 21 hours and while this will hurt his party, it might gain him enough Tea Party supporters to win some primaries in 2016.

        • smilee

          If courage means lack of fear he showed courage, was it a wise think to do? He sure showed more stupidity than courage. It was stupid, not sure it will do anything in 16 except maybe give him some caucus states but his odds for nomination I think are slim to none!

  • 1baronrichsnot1

    Very good bob!~ Every recent or let’s just any book I have read, every economist I ever heard, explains the progression of a funky economy to the complete collapse of an economy! It always includes exchange controls to keep the money in their sight so they can grab it! It always is way down the list before the collapse and things to look for in the progresssion. This is going to be bad! The World economy depends right now on every single country printing, stealing, taxing, depending on gov’t for all things, gimme this, gimme that, free this , free that. Then tax your producers and entreprenuers into oblivion in a frivilous attempt to “balance” a world economy out of control.. Yep, Bob is exactly right, the progression to exchange controls indicates the final theft of everyones fiat, dirty paper, counterfit, “money”will soon be complete! No one will want this fiat crap, they wont manufacture anything and be paid with it, they wont perform a health care service and accept it, they wont sell us food or energy and be paid with it! The slate will have to be wiped clean, before we establish a new currency, contain the riots, lawlessnes’, have the gov’t convince us that the new paper is valuable and start over! It could last longer than a year. I’m really depressed to see the exchange controls implemented now, I thought we had more time, seems its shorter than we all thought. I think corruption must really speed up the process! You guys take heed to Bobs warning! It is very very important to you all!

            There is another page I saw where someone gave global coordinates of so-called FEMA camps and they turned out to be Federal and State prisons. Links like yours lend no credibility to the idea of FEMA camps as concentration camps prepared in the face of rebellion.

            It seems to be a bunch of paranoia initiated from Captain Chem-trails, Alex Jones. FEMA is actually a good source for preppers and self-preparedness in the face of disaster. Look here for the real FEMA camps. http://www.fema.gov/

    We need more people like Ted Cruz in DC
    to reign in this out of control federal expansionism which places all
    Power in the Federal Government, in total Violation of the United
    States Constitution, which is now being totally abandoned and ignored
    in DC, and folks have allowed this to go on for far too long.

    A Truly Constitutional Conservative
    Movement is exactly what this country needs, and that, the TEA Party
    is promoting.

    But, instead of the TEA Party
    candidates being listened to, they are getting trashed by both the
    Socialist-Democrat Party, but also from so-called Republican
    Moderates. The Establishment Democrats and Establishment RINOS
    (so-called Moderate Republicans) do not want anybody from the TEA
    Party Candidates, because the TEA Party Candidates stand up for We
    The Tax Payers, and are not Beholden to Lobbyists who Buy and Sell
    Our Elected Officials so these Elected Officials Represent the
    Interests of Groups and Companies that the Lobbyist Bribe Them into
    Making.

    We, the People in the USA, have ZERO
    representation currently except a few Conservative Voices from TEA
    Party candidates, who get Trashed and Squelched by Both Parties, and
    the U.S. Media joins with the Politicians in Trashing Any Body and
    Any Movement that challenges this Corrupt and Fascistic Federal
    Government which has been built by both The Socialist-Democrats and
    the RINO’s in elected offices at every level of government, but
    especially at the Federal Level. This Conservative Trend needs to Be
    Expanded and Not Diminished.

    We now have a One Party Government and
    that is the Big Government Hybrid which has created a Crony
    Capitalist/Socialist State in which Big Government Grows while doing
    the Bidding of Big International Banking Interests and Their
    Corporate Holdings and then Giving All Big Businesses Contracts and
    Special Privileges and relief from Regulations, Fees, Taxes and Fines
    while this Big Government Fascist Government VIA the Big Fascistic
    Bureaucracies Trash, Bash, Pillage and Plunder Small to Mid-Size
    Companies and the Middle Class.

    This Corrupt System has been Erected,
    Promoted and Expanded by our One Party Government that has two
    factions of Fake Opponents who put on their periodic Dog and Pony
    Show of Debate and Disagreement that is nothing more than a Staged,
    Scripted, Rehearsed Dog and Pony Show made for TV Viewer Consumption
    on the Media that is owned and Controlled by the Same Big
    International Banks and Corporations that Control our Government By
    Buying and Selling our Politicians just like they Buy and Sell Stocks
    and Bonds.

    The TEA Party should totally split from
    the Republican Party for it is too corrupt and entrenched. But, the
    new Tactic ought to be to Campaign against this One Party System,
    whether the incumbents are Democrats or Republicans and Expose them
    as One and the Same and Just call them One Party while Labeling
    themselves as the Second Party and Trash both of them Equally by
    Pointing out the Duplicitous Criminals and Traitors for what and who
    they truly are.

            “Obozo-lite” AKA Romney, who in my opinion is really a Democrat wearing a GOP label.

    I
    have said all along since 2009 that the FIX was in and that all the
    deals were pre-planned because the establishment parties, both of
    them, work for the Big International Bankster and the Corporations
    they own. They are the Real Puppet Masters who have bought our
    government and the majority of the politicians that now occupy DC.
    Even when McCain selected Sarah Palin, which was a good move,
    but then he and the establishment republican party and their
    so-called Architects like that criminal and scoundrel, Karl Rove
    totally muzzled Sarah Palin. McCain needed Sarah Palin to
    prevent an even bigger defeat by Obama to make it look like a good
    race. The only reason I held my nose and voted for McCain was
    because he picked Sarah Palin, she was the Star on the Ticket, and
    McCain knew it and still know it, and that is the reason he is now so
    vehemently opposed to the TEA Party and Conservatives in general.
    Sarah Palin made this weak little weasel of a man look just
    like what he was, a weak little cowardly man who also is a criminal
    who sells his votes and power to the Puppet Masters who in turn, fund
    his campaigns and makes sure that he and his are well taken care of,
    off the books but not out of reach of McCain and the rest of his
    Co-Conspirators in Both Parties. Every single debate these
    scoundrels have are nothing but Made For TV scripted, staged,
    rehearse and Present to the Masses is nothing but a Dog and Pony
    Show. This last shut down was nothing but a game these folks
    were playing while all the final deals were cut behind closed doors.
    Deals like McConnell’s 2.9 billion dollar dam project which
    will go to his state and to the major corporations that build it and
    much of it back to Mitch McConnell in one way or another. The
    same things were going on with other senators and congressmen from
    other states and that is how they do business. That is how they
    got Obama Care. Remember things like the Cornhusker Kickback
    that Nebraska’s Senator got for an up Vote on Obama Care as they
    Bought the Votes needed, in spite of how much damage it was going to
    do to this nation. If a dam project were a ligitimate project,
    it could have been done in the light of day and not piggy backed on a
    Double Cross Vote on Debt Ceilings, etc.

    It
    is time for American’s to WAKE the Hell up before we fall forever
    asleep with our lights out forever if we continue down this path to
    destruction which has gone into hyperdrive over the past 5 years and
    8 trillion more in debt as they are purposely collapsing the dollar
    which has lost value over the past 6 to 8 years with the aim being
    the total collapse and the dollars we have will be basically
    worthless as hyper inflation will follow. We are already in a
    highly inflation cycle.

    So,
    it is way past time that All Americans, the poor, the working class,
    the middle class, and the owners of small to middle size businesses
    who have to make money and profits the old fashioned way by providing
    useable goods and services that people want and need and will buy for
    the quality. The Big International Corporations do not need to
    be fair, or to produce good goods and services for they get
    guaranteed government contracts and grants from the Big Government
    Which They Have Bought out.

    That
    is why Obama Care is only being applied to the Working and Middle
    Class that actually work for a living and pay taxes and to the Small
    to Mid Size Businesses, while the Big Boys and other Select Groups
    are exempted. They want to Wipe Out the Middle Class which the
    Small and Medium sized businesses hire. By forcing us all out
    of the middle class and destroying small businesses, the Big Boys
    Take It all and the rest of us, including the owners of the Small to
    Mid Sized Businesses wind up living in poverty and on the Welfare
    Roles.

    This
    is how Marxism works: Nationalizing Businesses (TARP) the Bank
    Bailout. Rember that in 2008 right in the middle of the
    election?? That was no accident. The problem did not just
    them be found out. They just used that strategic time to launch
    it on We The People with George Bush, our president, leading the
    Charge to insure they would get the votes to spend a trillion dollars
    handed over to WAll Street making the government their partner.
    Nationalizing Auto Plants?? Remember GM and Chrysler??
    Now, Health Care is the same thing. The Big Insurance
    Carriers, who are all part of the Nationalization of our Health Care
    System. Big Carriers are dumping all their high risk customers
    who have had them for decades and dumping them onto the exchanges,
    the government run programs that will have death panels that have
    already decided who will and will not die and or get needed
    treatments, procedures and other life saving needs such a dialysis
    and other life saving procedures will be rationed. And those of us
    who still have our own carriers have seen our rates double, triple
    and more with our co-payments being raised through the roof, with
    the hope that soon we all will be out of jobs and on the Death
    Panel Lists of the Government/Corporate Run Exchanges. The Real
    Exchanges that happen in DC is the Exchange Of Cash For Votes and
    Transfers of Wealth being Redistributed to the Highest Bidders who
    are in on this Crony Capitalist(Marxist) Scheme.

    We
    will soon be just another Third World Country like the Banana
    Republics of Cuba, Venezuela and others whre the Marxists have won
    out after destroying the value of their currency and then out of
    necessity, the peasants have to look to and support the Dictatorship
    after all their liberties and wealth are gone.

    Folks,
    this is not a scare tactic. This is real and to continue to vote for
    the majority of these folks is a big mistake. Because when we turn
    out and vote for these same folks that we already know are dishonest
    criminals, that gives them the impression that we have surrendered
    and that gives them more power and a bigger voice in Trashing The TEA
    Party and anyother group that dares Challenge And Expose them for the
    traitors they truly are. By Turning Out in Masses and NOT
    VOTING would be a better and louder signal to these Corrupt Bastards
    than turning out and voting and losing either way. Because when
    the Crony Capitalist/Marxist Republicans like John McCain, McConnell,
    and the rest of these mealy mouthed weasels are one and the same as
    Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of those mealy and nasty mouthed
    weasels in the Democrat party.

    The
    message we need to be singing from now on is that we are A Legitimate
    Second Party and not a Weak Third Party, and the current system of
    Crony Capitalist/Marxist Big Government System with Republicans and
    Democrats is Really One Party with two factions that pretend to
    Challenge One Another in their never ending Dog and Pony Shows. And
    the MEDIA, all of them, are the Propagandists for this Machine
    Government. FAUX News is the mouth of the Establishment
    Republicans with their weasels like Bill O’Reilly and his Parade of
    Experts from Both Sides, supposedly the left and right. That is
    all part of the game so that people who want to believe that we have
    a chance with this system are hearing our voices heard. And, of
    course they are not. The Establishment Reupublicans and their
    Mouthpieces at FAUX News are piling on and trashing Conservatives and
    Particularly the TEA Party more viciously than the Democrats. That
    ought to wake many up who may still believe FAUX News is speaking for
    us?? I think not.

    Anyway,
    let’s stop calling this is 2-Party System. As it is currently
    constructed and operated, is a 1-Big Government Party with two TV
    Wrestlers Pretending to be Enemies in order appease and entertain the
    Morons who Watch and Listen to them as if is a real fight. It
    is no more a Real Fight than TV Wrestling or Writing a Movie Script
    with the Winners already determined and is written into the script.

    We
    need to plainly say we are The Second Party that is truly going to
    Challenge this One Party System, but to continue to believe that the
    likes of McCain, McConnell and the rest of these folks are going to
    do our bidding even if we give them majorities, they will do exactly
    like they have with the election the TEA Party Conservatives gave
    them in 2010 for the House, the Spending and Funding Folks, with the
    promise that if they had the House, they Would Stop the Obama Regime.
    So, what really happened?? The newly elected members were
    filled in on what the Scams Are and offered them to Join The Club,
    and if they did not they were neutered and derided publicly and taken
    off key committees thus totally silencing them. Look what they
    have done to Ted Cruz and others. So, did it make a difference
    in the outcomes??

    No,
    it did not. So, next time around our folks need to Run on Our
    Ticket and not on the One Party Ticket either it be Democrat or
    Republican, it is ONE Corrupt Party that is Fun For Them and Misery
    for Us All.

    It was a show put on to let the People know how hard the Elected One’s work for us, to protect us and the Nation. I can only hope that enough of the People see through the games played in Washington at our expense when it comes time to Vote. We pick the Government we want, and we deserve what we pick, it’s up to the People to make the choice, think before you vote.

    • red neck

      Wrong… Sorry but if you think for one minute that your vote is going to change something than you need to buy the property that I have for sale on the moon…… I am sick of hearing people say that we are going to “fix” this when the elections come around….

    What I don’t understand is why the liberal left refuses to hear the “other” side of what is happening to this country before their very eyes, and is embracing socialism, elitism, higher taxes,and far far less liberty than we are entitled to and used to. And why? Nothing this POS president has promised the nation so far has happened, but what has happened, Benghazi, IRS and NSA debaucles, etc. is being totally ignored and swept under the rug by this smug lying administration-and yet these sheep fueled by the MSM actually BELIEVE and support this guy. We are doomed as a nation if this backward slide into socialism/communism continues. I do my share every election year, but apparently it isn’t enough.

  • Jim B

    This play is not over! We haven’t had the violent protesting, and the police state wrongful use of force to stop it, a very big scene. Bank runs, another big scene, enjoyed by all. We are probably in store for a dozen or so major city bankruptcies, my personal favorite. And let us not forget the finally ‘When Serfs Attack’, as 55 million Americans (or more) who can no longer feed, cloth, house, and medicate themselves through government handouts take to the street attacking and burning their welfare buildings. As for the politicians, gone into hiding, and the King… gone on a lifelong vacation, Michele is so proud!

    On a stranger note, BHO is going to plead his youth base to sign up for ObamaCare so that funding will be available to pay for the high volume care requirements of the aging, disabled, and the none working Serfs, and illegal aliens. The youth of course can’t find a job waiting tables let alone pay for ObamaCare, so they’ll take the tax penalty, that is, if they even qualify to file an IRS return, most don’t! ObamaCare is a perfect example of government incompetence at its extreme. Why, how did such a program get passed when 65 percent of Americans wanted nothing to do with it is beyond comprehension. Look at SS (unfunded, 1 tax away from shutdown), McCare and McAid (bankrupted, broke), Welfare (a complete and utter failure on the war of poverty, it now has bread generations of poverty), Food Stamps (see Welfare….) . And the final insult to the American Citizens i.e put the IRS in charge of ObamaCare. Americans used to thrive on Independence, Freedom, and the Pursuit of Happiness, and now nearly 50 percent worship at the government alter. We can only hope that someday they will awaken, hopefully it will not be to late!

  • dagger

    The government shutdown was a smoke screen to get the focus off all the Obama regime scandals and disasters(Benghazi and the IRS scandal, just to mention a couple). There is a pattern here by the ‘regime’ to cause a continuing and unending string of crises and catastrophes to shield the Obama regime from the investigations by congress and the American people. Look for this to continue and an Obama regime created major disaster to occur shortly before his second term ends. This will give Obama the opportunity to declare martial law and suspend all liberties and rights plus he may even cancel the presidential election in 2016 declaring himself president for life.

    Dear Mr. Livingston.
    I wholeheartedly agree with your article.
    However we have to realize that most if not all people do not understand that their house is on fire until they smell the smoke, that being said the corruption by all forms of government will go unabated and unchallenged. The republican party simply had all of this planned out with the democrats from the beginning this was their way of convincing the stupid people that the republican party was taking an interest in what the people wanted. I keep hearing people say that WE can fix all of this in 2014 when the elections come about…. I’m sorry to say that we are not going to “fix” anything…

    alboy5.. made a clear comment below something that I have been pondering for some time…. The Nazi police state known as obama-care will be mandating all and everyone to follow under government rule… You can now expect the government to force you to wear mask during “flu” season as with a mandated “flu” shot with refusal meaning stiff fines and possible jail time. You have to understand that the “flu” is one of the largest money makers for big pharma with the government now undeniably in control…. Of course the government will now have to pass phony laws in order to keep the sheeple sleeping under a complete tyrannical umbrella.

          With Gold coins and Jewelry you have to be careful. If you aren’t sharp you can get fleeced You might be told you are buying pure gold but there can be as much as 60% other metals amalgamated within usually silver copper and tin.

        I agree with purging the corruption. Before we the people could ever clean up house, we must first recognize that when freshmen first go up to capitol hill, they are constantly confronted with lobbyists and special interests. This barrage of influence from K street and the likes of AIPAC instantly clouds the decision making of our representative body and they lose sight of their constituents then self-servativeness sets in. This cycle is never ending and there the stage is set for the charade of what appears to be patriotic kabuki theater. I am sure most of you see it on a regular basis and others, like Alex et.al. plays the old football game of “my team is leading the polls”.

        Waking up the right folks besides the informed audience does no good when we the people send the same actors back to the hill to continue their “pay for view” role playing. Short of active revolting, we are dead in the water with these same old politicians.

        • red neck

          Agreed…. And it is those politicians that hold the key to the gate…. Meaning even a little simple thing like term limits for politicians is out of reach, they have advanced the corruption of the government to a point that they are no longer held to the law or to the constitution… They have put themselves above the common folk and this has infested the whole system…. When we speak of “new” politicians ( oxymoron ) the belief that the removal of the bad with a replacement of good is a fools quest. The system itself is a failure…..

            It’s here to stay because of the brainwashing of the youth. For 31 straight times, the people in various states voted down same-sex marriage. In Maine a few years ago it was closest yet, 52-48…that heralded the change to me, as polls show 61% of 30 & under see same-sex marriage as good thing, as equality…and thus, in 2012, all 4 same-sex proposals in various states were voted in!

          • Vis Fac

            The vote really doesn’t matter anymore Prop 8 in the PRCM ( Peoples Republic of Commie/Mexico overwhelmingly voted to make same sex marriage illegal not once but twice. The queers sued forgetting the old DUMBOCRITIC mantra of majority rules . So here we have a MINORITY ignoring the vote of the people keep and suing to overturn the vote. What kind of crap is that?

            The vote was upheld in federal court and STILL the queers pushed on and LIBERALS being liberals allowed proceedings to continue (despite the majority vote) in the LIBERAL court system all the way to the supreme court where they failed to issue a ruling.

            So he we have it Liberals making things up as they go to force their agenda on everyone. Time for the torches and pitchforks.

    “The United States was never in any danger of defaulting on the debt, because there is no real U.S. debt and there is no intention for it to ever be paid. Government can and does create money out of thin air. With this ability there cannot possibly be debt. And if there is no debt, there is no possibility of default.”

    Is it not the Federal Reserve (or other countries) that the Government currently borrows money from, to be paid back with interest? The Federal Reserve currently has power to print money out of thin air – not “government”. It is done with no over-sight from Congress or any other government entity. Granted the Federal Reserve is a banking scam, and the power of printing money should be taken from the central bank and restored to Congress alone, it seems misleading to say the debt isn’t real, and even seems reckless. Are we to expect government to print more money to take care of its debt? If not, then we shouldn’t promote the idea that there is no debt simply because government can print as much as it wants.

    The added “pork” in the bill is quite outrageous, but the whole thing was indeed mere theater. Theater that I have no problem with since it brought the financial issues of this country to the forefront of debate, and gave witness to the audacity of Federal Government (particularly the Executive) to make the shutdown as painful as possible. There are always those who will do nothing but blame Republican or Democrats. However, those couple of politicians that fought it was expected to enter into agreement prior to damaging the credit of the United States and becoming real political canon fodder. Cruz did his job.

    For those of you who believe that the two parties are simply two wings of the same bird of prey; that they will never do what is needed on their own, and that voting simply isn’t enough, then perhaps you should consider what we can do – Convention of States expressly to place Congress under a Balanced Budget Amendment.

      The government is controlling us through the IRS an agency that answers to no one and forces through ARMED intimidation.That is why it was chosen to administer ODUMBOCARE!

      It is a well known fact they (the IRS) will send a platoon of ARMED goons to assault one person. Therefore you either 1) capitulate or 2) get shot 3) are Incarcerated 4) Have your property seized or 5) All of the above (you get shot while incarcerated) Is this what it means to be an American? Government uses money to control people if your money is rendered worthless through a massive influx of fiat paper you cannot by groceries pay bills etc.

      We are at the mercy of a Big Government that allots what it wants to the people. Have you ever seen a politician use “public transportation, or other than for a photo op eat fast food, or live in an urban home like most of us have to? No; and you never will, for they are in control. You we and I are peons to be ordered around, spied, on harassed, and subjected to random searches and audits or have our homes subject to being used for “tactical advantage” by the police.

      Time for a common sense party one that adheres to constitutional law instead of “their” rules. Time to eliminate the elite and re elect no one and install term limits on everyone In other words no more “career” politicians !!

        I can agree with most of what you said, but I refuse to accept that there isn’t anything we can do about it.

        And I wholeheartedly agree that the other parties (such as the Constitutional, Libertarian, Green, etc.) should have equal standing in politics today, including Primary Presidential elections. We need balanced debate in this country that isn’t the same Coke or Pepsi brands that currently seem to control Congress. Why or how the other parties are excluded, eludes me at the moment, so I’m not sure of a remedy for that – it seems to be nothing more than media bias.

        While I agree with term limits to a degree, I would first call for the repeal of the 17th Amendment. The way for the average voter to affect change in the Federal Government, besides mere voting, is through the power of the State. That’s how this country was designed.

            Indeed, WWII has affected every aspect of morality in the past half century. With that in mind, I will say, it is not the federal government’s responsibility to educate the public.I would sooner abolish the Department of Education, than I would the War Powers Acts created as a result of WWII which persists today. Nonetheless, staying fully informed is not the Federal Government’s responsibility, nor the State – it is your own.

      ‘Crony capitalism’ is a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials with increased government action and control.

      ‘Capitalism’ An economic system based on a free market, open competition, profit motive and private ownership of the means of production without increased government action and control.

        American style Capitalism has ALWAYS had a close working relationship with the Government.

        Eleuthère lrénée DuPont started a gunpowder business in Delaware. Irénée’s success can be attributed to several factors:

        1The french government gave him top secret machinery and plans to produce the best gunpowder possible in that day. It was state-of-the-art technology, and they supplied manpower to help get started.

        2 The DuPonts had friends in America that helped them in numerous ways, getting financing, business, land, etc.

        3 Eleuthère lrénée DuPont was intelligent, worked very hard and worked with patience.

        The transcontinental Railroad was paid for by government Land grants.

        There are several other examples. What Republicans call “Business as usual” – underpaying Workers, Unsafe working conditions, ripping off people and enriching your friends as well as a few congressmen – THATS ‘crony’ capatilism.

        • JeffH

          The ignorant commie KG says the American “style” of Capitalism has ALWAYS had a close working relationship with the Government.

          No KG, it is Crony Capitalism that has always had a close relationship with government whether it is American style, European style or Asian style and your soap boxing for the National Socialist Workers Party can’t change that fact.

He is a fraud, criminal and traitor. A con man of the worst kind couldn’t top what obama has done to America and the world. Now is a good time to start pressuring congress to impeach him. They have all received a indictment to impeach obama. Once they read it and start getting millions of phone calls, they will have no choice.

  • Old Wolf

    Been a puppet show for a long time. The most effective way to get away with it is to provide an illusion of choice, whilst making sure that those who actually get into power are the ones under your control.
    make sure that those educated in law are only educated by you, demean, denounce, and destroy anyone who does their own research, and ensure that your picked pols rise to the top.
    But always provide an illusion of choice.
    Meanwhile, you need to factionalize and divide the country, make sure that there is no room to talk between persons, make sure that any request for civility between sides is met with hostility, suspicion, and hatred, make certain that all sides are convinced that the others are evil and out to destroy them.
    Then create an internal or external enemy, make sure that they’re someone nobody would want to speak for, and marginalize them, then use those precedents to expand the power outward. Levy heavier and heavier deprivations of rights on them. Meanwhile, if at all possible, make certain that there are as many as possible of them that are put in the situations that are most likely to trigger the behavior for which you’re demonizing them, or that you have prepared incidents in order to demonize more.
    Extend these precedents out incrementally. First disarm them, remove their power to vote, ensure that they’re pushed to the outside of society so there’s another us versus them, then include another group, then another, until the people can’t even see that they’re being included. Incremental movement.
    In a few short decades, you can have the jeering, hateful crowds targeting each other and doing your enforcement work for you, and then demanding other groups be treated the same.
    Wherever possible, at this point, make sure that you can get the power to make political enemies disappear, preferably without record or trace, or marginalize them by calling them terrorists, or other perjorative terms that will make people not want to deal with them.
    Wash, rinse, repeat. Before another few years pass, the reaction increases in speed, a full-scale tumbling down the hill and any attempts to apply the brakes are too late. Use the resulting chaos to remove any other enemies, but preserve that illusion of choice.
    It’s only when hope for change inside the system fades, that the system fully collapses… so that illusion is the highest tool of a tyrant.

          • KG

            The Nazis were socialists for the White Blonde haired Ayrans and no body else. It was a Nationalistic movement meaning that it was for the German people – the ‘Pure’ German people. It was for the German Workers who worked for the State in service to the Military. Here is a fascinating talk by a famous Neo-Nazi who explains the real difference between communism and National “Socialism”. I do not advocate for anything these racist creeps offer, but I cannot pass up Erics good description at showing the difference. He even mentions the confusion among their ‘enemies’ in the Right.

      • Old Wolf

        It’s also an excellent description of how the democrats pushed against the civil rights acts. It’s a story of politics in general, from
        the Greek and Roman to today.
        It doesn’t belong to either side, really, it’s part of human nature when presented with power, and the ability to magnify it.
        No side is ‘immune’. The real question is if they can recognize it when it occurs, and attempt to stop it.
        The Nazi madness was a reflection of the ‘liberal’ movement in the US. Their eugenics program was a reflection of that created by the eugenics society here, all claiming to be progressive, including Sanger and Rockefeller and Goethe.
        The claim was made that the Nazis were ‘beating them at their own game’.
        Neither party is a monolithic block. Both parties have a great deal to be ashamed of, including the current drone strikes, extraordinary rendition, imprisonment without trial, without habeas corpus, seizures of property without warrant, and not stopping any of these actions.
        Libertarians get their own kooks and crazies, most of the time misunderstanding personal liberty, and the nature of, and limits to sovereignty. There is a large amount of intentional misinformation out there, and it doesn’t help that there are organized groups on both sides that apparently have little better to do than troll the comments sections for the ‘opposing’ sides to make them look worse.

    Psychopath: “(a) personality disorder characterised partly by enduring anti-social behavior, a diminished capacity for empathy or remorse, and poor behavioral controls.[1]”
    “The 4th and 5th editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) have a diagnosis of Antisocial (Dissocial) Personality Disorder
    (ASPD), which states: “The essential feature of antisocial personality
    disorder is a pervasive pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the
    rights of others that begins in childhood or early adolescence and
    continues into adulthood.” [Wikipedia]

    Bob, were you just being ‘nice’ when you stipulated that the elected class “all suffer from a psychosis” by not actually naming the disorder? While ‘psychosis’ conjures the vague idea of being “out of touch with reality”, ‘psychopath’ actually describes the ‘character disorder’.

    Which do you think is more likely? Out of touch, or something more sinister?

    47% Think Neither Political Party Represents the American People

    Monday, October 14, 2013

    Belief that the Republican Party has a plan for the future has tumbled 20 points since last year, but nearly half of voters still believe neither major political party represents the American people.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 34% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the GOP has a plan for where it wants to take the nation. That’s down from 54% in June 2012 and back to levels seen in earlier surveys. Forty-seven percent (47%) think Republicans do not have a plan for the future, while 19% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 12-13, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

    So go ahead, shut off your real listeners, who don’t want to register, keep those paid by the Government to make a mess of your website, and on Nov the 4th have a nice night in bed with Disqus…
