Four Questions For "We The People"

July 12, 2010 by  

Dear Bob,

I have four questions, (1.) When are the people going to get off their fat lazy butts and start to take control of the government the way the constitution was meant to control the government?

(2.) When will the people who have the power and can impeach this clown and kick him and his lackey’s out into the street where he belongs?

(3.) What do we the voting, tax paying and legal citizens of this country have to do to get the 28th Amendment passed?

(4.) When Social Security was first implemented and people first started to collect Social Security, they did not have to pay income tax on the monthly allotment, due to the earner had already paid taxes on at the time of earning, everyone that now draws SS each month should not have to pay income tax on it again and should not be considered as income. If I withdraw money every month from my savings or 401K to be able to pay my living expenses, I’m not taxed, it’s not considered income. Social Security should be the same, I’ve paid the max for the past 50+ years into it, now I should be able to withdraw from it, as if it where a savings account and the leaches in Washington are the bankers (shyster’s).

The silent majority and legal citizens of our once great country, must now, more than ever, get off there lazy asses and take back control of the government and tell the politician’s we run this country and you are only the appointed administrators and WE the People can boot you if you don’t do your job.

Bob, one last thing, with today’s technology, why do we need the electoral college and polling places, we should be able to vote on our computers, phones or these Ipods, if these are secure enough to handle money and top secret documents, it should be safe enough to vote…….

PEOPLE SHOULD NEVER FEAR THE GOVERNMENT,
GOVERNMENT SHOULD ALWAYS FEAR THE PEOPLE.
WE THE PEOPLE
FOR THE PEOPLE
BY THE PEOPLE

Thank you for taking the time to read my complaints and suggestions.
Michael J. Anthony Sr.

 

Dear Michael,

Thanks for your questions. I’ll try and answer them as succinctly as possible.

  1. While there are a good many people who are aware of what’s going on in our country (particularly those participating in Tea Parties), a great number are unaware of anything beyond American Idol and Jay Leno and when their next check will arrive from the government. Currently about 49 percent of Americans pay no income taxes. You can’t expect any of that number to vote for candidates who do not promise them a handout. I’m hopeful that enough people are fed up with the policies of this administration and will go vote in November and elect enough Republicans to take unbridled power away from the Democrats. However, if you’ve paid attention over the last 20 years you must realize that Republicans and Democrats are essentially two sides of the same coin. Both, when in power, seek to steal more of your wealth and grow their power. So we can’t just mindlessly elect Republicans. As example, I give you Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Olympia Snowe, etc. We must elect Republicans who are in the vein of Ron and Rand Paul, Michelle Bachman, Jim DiMint, etc. Until we elect enough of this type of person, true conservatives, nothing will change.
  2. As currently constituted, with Democrats controlling the House and Senate, there will not be any action to remove Obama from power, much less the Democrat leaders in Congress. However, I’m not sure there are any of the current crop of Republicans who will have the stomach for an impeachment hearing and trial should they gain control of Congress. There are serious doubts about whether Obama is even constitutionally eligible to serve, and yet there is not one Republican candidate that I’m aware of that is talking about this subject. Don’t look for it to happen. You may recall that although the House presented plenty of evidence to the Senate that Bill Clinton had committed perjury, which would have fallen under the Founding Fathers’ definition of High Crime and Misdemeanor, all 100 Senators, Republican and Democrat alike, voted against removing him from office. Most refused to even look at the evidence presented by the House. When pushed into a corner they circle the wagons and protect their own.
  3. While I agree with certain portions of the proposed 28th Amendment, I’m not sure that it is the best course of action. I agree that the 16th Amendment should be repealed (in fact it was not lawfully ratified). I believe there are enough safeguards in the existing Constitution to govern us correctly if we elect the right people: people who are willing to live by the Constitution. I also believe nullification (as per Jefferson and Madison’s nullification of the Alien and Sedition Acts) is the proper way to fight an over-reaching Federal government. However, anyone supporting the proposed 28th Amendment should get out and promote it, get the backing of their fellow citizens and put pressure on the elected elitists. That is the only way something like that will have a chance to pass. I’m skeptical that even that will work, however, and believe we should remain within the framework of the existing Constitution to wage our battles.
  4. Social Security is the greatest Ponzi scheme ever devised by man. It is simply another of the several ways the elected elites are using to steal our wealth from us. I could go on for pages on this Ponzi scheme and the other ways our government has enslaved us, but I’d better just suggest you scan our site, for much of what I have written about these subjects. As to the use of technology in voting, that is something I’m extremely leery of. It is too easy for the voting machines to be tampered with. Regarding the Electoral College, we don’t need to tamper with that. This is a safeguard provided by our wise Founding Fathers and is what prevents us from becoming a true Democracy, which no thinking person wants to happen. Our Founders devised for us a Republican form of government, and that’s what I’d like to see us keep. To understand the difference I would direct you to the Federalist Papers. They provide fascinating reading and you can gain great insight into the ideas that led to the establishment of our country.

Finally, we the people no longer control the government. The government has become corporatist. Corporations and special interest groups that provide the campaign funds are who control our elected elites. That is why you saw such hubris on the part of the elites in pushing through the stimulus bills and the healthcare bill. They no longer care what we think because they no longer fear us as much as they fear upsetting their sugar daddies. In order for that to change the people must rise up in sufficient numbers, overcome the lies told during the campaign and make good decisions when we vote.

I hope I have adequately answered all your concerns,

Best wishes,
Bob

    Well done, Bob.

    On your response about the electronic voting booths, I totally agree. I have already read several Articles about how the computing code on those machines has already been hacked ands tampered with, so the outcome would always work in the Elite-ists favor on a margin of 51-49%, every time. I would much prefer going back to the paper ballots, and please – no last minute shoe boxes full of so-called missing votes.

    Again, well done.

    In response to all your questions, The Declaration of Independence clearly states, “If a government becomes too destructive, the right is reserved for the people to overthrow that government and enstill a new one.” Bob, these days voting may not be the answer, as it was in the past. I guess when people are paying 60% of every dollar they earn, we will realize we are are no more than colonist trying to free themselves from King George. Except this time there will be no where to go, to start over. We will work for our government and we will die by the hands of our government.

  • BrotherPatriot

    Yep…paper voting only please that is tallied by redundant, unbiased sources (if that’s possible…lol).

    Love your work, Bob.

    Do it the slow, old-fashioned way. Then, if nothing else goes wrong, the hordes of media whores on the east coast won’t be tempted to tell everyone west of the midwest that ‘the election is already over so you don’t need to vote.’
    Geepers, doing it the old-fashioned way might even put some people (dare I say it?) TO WORK!
    Hey Obummer! In case your Haavid brain is still over-worked, here’s a way to INCREASE the number of people EMPLOYED in the US, even if it’s not for long.

    This may not be the biggest problem BUT it certainly is One of the top 5. It is the facts that “WE THE PEOPLE” are NOT told. I am a history teacher so I know that: 1) Members of British Parliment get NOTHING when they are voted out, retire, or die. 2) Canada has ONLY paper ballots AND reports the results by midnight the day of the vote. 3) the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND is a terrible unfunded mandate (i.e.burden) on the nation’s school districts in Money (most stays in D.C.), time and paper work Plus the cost is borne by the taxpayers in the school districts NOW THE FRAUD IS THIS: THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS NO CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO “MEDDLE” IN EDUCATION. We could save BILLIONS by repealing the act.It has to be reauthorized THIS YEAR
    The House put in a rule that every bill that is introduced must contain language showing WHERE in the Constitution the authority lies. WILL ANY Congressman have the courage to move on this? There are many other issues that are JUST NOT REPORTED by our FREE PRESS BUT here are 3. Can they get rid of the Dept. of Education? Carter put it in as a payoff to the NEA for their endorsement. Maybe just not fund it?! The House has the “purse strings” according to the Constitution. That would not take ANY action by the Senate OR the President. No one can say that it has made the schools better!

    I must have studied a different constitution as a New York City public school student half-a-century ago. The one I studied provides that all money bills must ORIGINATE in the House of Representatives. They still must be voted upon in the affirmative by a majority of the Senate before they may be sent to the President for his signature. All bills vetoed must be returned to the legislature for a revote. Those that receive the specified supermajority in both legislative houses become law despite the veto by the Chief Executive. I am not certain the legislative conference committees were envisioned by the founders. The veritable sea of conflicting laws that bind Americans (hand-and-foot, it often seems) is the result of proposed bills being amended beyond recognition instead of being permitted to die.
