Global Challenges Ahead

November 23, 2011

Tonight the Republican Candidates for President of the United States of America took to the stage for the eleventh time since the start of the campaign season.  “Live from Constitution Hall” in Washington D.C., Wolfe Blitzer began the telecast as moderator for this debate to discuss Foreign Policy sponsored by CNN, The Heritage Foundation and The American Enterprise Institute.

The questions came from all sponsors and individuals across the nation using social media outlets.  Each candidate had the opportunity to discuss each question as they deemed fit. No quick 15 second or 30 second responses but well thought out detailed information people could digest.

The questions dealt with the economy, foreign policy towards Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan,Pakistan and Israel.  Each candidate answered fully and with great detail outlining their plan if they were the President of the United States.  All candidates refrained from knock  out punches to fellow candidates and directed the punches toward the President himself.

They all agreed Obama lacks the leadership skills needed and has demonstrated his inability to continue as our Commander and Chief.  The Super Committee failed because the President left it up to Congress to come  up with the cuts. Rick Perry stated as President he would have been working day and night with Congress to pass the cuts so they wouldn’t need the Super Committee which turned out to be a “Super failure.”

Newt again commanded grand applause as he discussed the real issues that were not being addressed and that is our Foreign Policy should be about protecting the sovereignty of our land and not some political action that can’t be won.  We need to have a policy that the countries will understand. They need to know we mean business when we address the terrorists problems infiltrating borders all across the world.

Ron Paul still continues to emphasize the liberties we have should not be eroded because we think someone may be a terrorist.  He believes the “Patriot Act” is one such law that needs to be removed because it tramples on our rights as Americans.  Congressmen Paul remains the Candidate that is a true believer in our Constitution and will remain the voice of freedom for all Americans.

Illegal immigration was a hot topic once again.  The former speaker of the House believes those who go to church, have an education and have been here for many years can not be thrown out of this nation which is a form of amnesty.  He was asked about his backing of amnesty reform bill under Reagan  to which he responded that the law was passed with the precondition that the borders would be secure and the country would have the ability to remove those illegal immigrants from that point on.

All candidates received air time to discuss their views. Rick, Mitt, and Newt seemed to gain the most time as Ron, Herman, Rick, Jon and Michele had to interrupt every so often to have their voices heard more than every 15 minutes.  Wolfe attempted to have all candidates respond to the questions but candidates demanded more time to respond to allegations presented against them by fellow candidates.

All candidates performed well with no major gaffs or stumbles.  Jon Huntsman did well with his foreign policy knowledge. Romney again did well showing he had a grasp on foreign policy.   There was no clear winner in this debate as all candidates  as they all did well because they all had the opportunity to talk about issues in depth.    If the polls change tomorrow there will be just a few points one way or another with no significant rise for any of the candidates.

Taxpayers on Hook For 535 Million

November 18, 2011

Today Steven Chu, Energy Secretary entered the Rayburn Office building inWashingtonD.C.to testify at the Energy and Commerce Sub Committee on Oversight and Investigation.

Chairman, Representative Cliff Stearns (R) Florida opened the hearing concerning the 535 million dollar loan guarantee to the now defunct Solyndra Company. “It is readily apparent that senior officials in the administration put politics before the stewardship of taxpayer’s dollars”.

The investigation has been active for 9 months with many questions surfacing on why the Department of Energy would guarantee this loan at the end of the Bush administration would not make the loan guarantee stating DOE had too many issues with the cash flow of the company and the liquidity remained unresolved.  They ended discussions with Solyndra.

Later in the month President Obama was inaugurated and Steven Chu was put in charge of the DOE.  Secretary Chu pushed the loan though quickly and pressed for action on this company.  Solyndra was labeled “A Litmus test” to fund Green projects.

The Office of Budget Management could not score the company correctly and 6 months after receiving the 535 million dollars Solyndra was struggling and one year later they started to default on the terms of the loan.

At that point Secretary Chu made several waivers and “Last minute offers” subordinating the loans to private investors according to Rep. Stearns and now we have huge problems with a few of the loans Secretary Chu pushed through. Several have blown up and now have filed for bankruptcy. The President and colleagues have never addressed these loans and have made statements such as this one, “Hey, sometimes these things just don’t work out”.

Secretary Chu testimony was given under oath as is any testimony in front of Congressional Committees under Title 18, Section 1001 under United States Code.  The Secretary was asked if he would require Consul and he rejected before being sworn in.

Secretary Chu opened with a five minute statement addressing the clean energy sector and the race to bring the industry to America. There are hundreds of billions of dollars spent on Clean Energy around the world.  “Over 50 countries offer some kind of public financing” for the industryChuexpressed.

Through the loan programs there are over 38 companies working on reducing our countries dependence on fossil fuels.  These companies need the funding from the government to achieve their goals as private sector funds are not available currently to loan all these start-up industry.

Solyndra had invested nearly a billion dollars of private funds to the business before applying for the half a billion dollar loan through DOE.  The Secretary looked at all information available and felt he was doing what was right and good for the taxpayers of this nation. “As Secretary of Energy the finally decisions on Solyndra were mine” Secretary Chu emphatically went on, “I did not make any decision based on political considerations”.  His decision to loan the money to Solyndra was based on information provided to him from experience professions.

MIT name Solyndra as one of the top 50 innovative companies of the times.  The market deteriorated and caused a decline in the market causing the monetary loss in the Clean Energy industry.  The problems may not have happened had the economy not faulted.

During the hearing Secretary Chu was asked if he knew that subordinating the loan was illegal and could not occur.   He informed the committee the General Consul informed him he could subordinate the loan and decided to do that with hopes Solyndra would come out of the financial problems within the company.

This hearing went on for over two hours with both sides asking tough questions to get to the bottom of why this company was given the loan when so much information was out there showing the financial difficulties the company was having.

Rep. Waxman and Rep. DeGette both addressed the Clean Energy race and continually emphasized who important it was we get off the fossil fuels to move toward the clean energy businesses and the Republicans are misrepresenting the problems in this case. Waxman “It’s pretty obvious what’s going on in this hearing room” as he asked the Secretary if the loans were made for political favors to a campaign donor, which Chu denied. Mr. Waxman stated the Republicans and big oil are creating a scandal plain and simple.

Ultimately when asked by Representative John Sullivan (R) Oklahoma if he would guarantee this loan today knowing what he knows now he stated “Certainly knowing what I know now we’d say no”.

Now taxpayers are on the hook for more waste as this loan was pushed through knowing there were huge risks within the company.  Secretary Chu revealed he pushed many loans through quickly knowing the Clean Energy industry was up and coming with many issues unanswered.


IN GOD WE TRUST

November 1, 2011

On the floor in the House the debate is going on right now on a resolution to reaffirm “IN GOD WE TRUST” as our nations motto. The Republicans are all standing up voicing their strong support of the bill as this nation was founded on the principles of God. The Democrats are saying the resolution was put on the floor to hide the insures that are prevalent in the country at this time.

Personally, my belief is as the official motto of the United States of America “IN GOD WE TRUST” should be maintained for all of eternity as our nation grows and develops. You don’t have to believe in GOD if you choose not too, however as a nation you should respect the principles this nation was founded on.

The motto does not ask you to go to church and pray or become a religious zealot unless you choose to be. Just because you believe in God or you do not believe in God does not make you a better American as Representative Jerrold Nadler (D) New York just stated in his remarks.

Regardless of what you believe or don’t believe, this is our nation and our motto and so it should be. Our Founding Fathers envisioned a Nation like no other in the history of the World. They worked tirelessly to write a Bill of Rights and a Constitution that unlike any ever written. These writings were based on individuals rights to live free of a dictator or ruler that would impose their ideologies the citizens.

Written in the First Amendment the words state “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” which was why Puritans came to this country on the Mayflower to escape religious persecution from the King of England.
The Church of England was the official Church with the Monarch being theSupreme Governor of the religion.

For over 2 centuries those living in England could not publicly proclaim their faith if it differed from those few accepted by the Monarchy. If you were Protestant or Catholic glory be you were safe, any other and death was imminent if anyone found out not in your immediate sphere of influence.

So American’s can worship to any GOD they believe in and will not be persecuted by the government. Our tolerances for all religions is unheard of anywhere else in the World. In many countries if you do not believe in the faith of the country you are exiled or killed. Here we are free to worship to any GOD of our choosing.

So if we must reaffirm our Nations motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” so be it. If you don’t agree with it or don’t like our National motto tough. If it offends you, pack up your bags and head to a country that will accept you as you are with hopes you would respect their Nations motto regardless of what it is.

Presidential Debate Live from Las Vegas

October 19, 2011

  Tonight we were witness to another Republican Presidential debate live from the Venetian in Las Vegas Nevada. The candidates took center stage as Anderson Cooper moderated the proceedings. On stage we saw Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain,Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Rich Santorum, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. Missing from the debate was Jon Huntsman and Gary Johnson, both were given the opportunity to appear with the rest of the field but opted not to show.

The debate was fisty and furious as candidates sparred about illegal immigration, defense spending, the budget, the border fence and jobs or lack there of.  Mr. Perry and Mr. Romney, Mr. Santorum vs Mr. Paul and Mr. Romney, Mr. Perry, Mr. Paul, Ms. Bachmann and Mr. Santorum against Mr. Cain. During this debate there appeared to be more personal attacks on the candidate on their records which did not sit well with the audience.

When asked about the nuclear waste issue Ron Paul got an arousing ovation when he stated why should 49 states tell one state who will take nuclear waste. “It is not right” he went on. Get politicians out of this and allow states to decide. the government shouldn’t be in the business of subsidizing industries and it is time they get out. The states need to compete for business and markets not the Federal Government. Many of the other candidates had to agree with him as that appeared to be the correct answer.

Anderson asked Perry if the 9-9-9 would cost taxpayers more and he went after Herman pretty strongly. Mr. Cains 9-9-9 program is not a value added tax though Rick Perry believes it is and attacked Herman as Rick stated ” I’ll bump plans with you Brother”  New Hampshire and Nevada are hurting and with a new tax of 9% increases on homes, on Social Security and more, Perry stated “I don’t think so Herman, it’s not gonna fly!”

Mr. Cain responded by explaining how the plan will not increase taxes and he used the example of a loaf of bread having 5 separate taxes on it now and the 9% will take out those 5 taxes and will be replaced by the new 9% tax. As he responded Anderson told him his time was up and stated he would have another 30 seconds to which Herman asked “Tonight” which got a laugh from Bachmann and the audience.

Ron Paul stated it was a regressive tax and would increase taxes on everyone. Mr. Paul focused on the audience members original question asking what would you replace the income tax with and his response was ” I say Nothing”. He continued informing the audience members spending is a tax and he has a program that would cut one trillion dollars out of the budget the first year he is in office.

Herman Cain got his additional 30 seconds at this point only minutes later with this statement ” Once again unfortunately none of my distinguished colleagues who have attacked me up here tonight understand the plan.” His plan replaces the hidden taxes on products with the 9% tax he has proposed. The tax will be a federal level tax not the state tax, apples and oranges.

Later on in the debate Anderson asked Cain who should be the nominee Rick Perry or Mitt Romney to which he replied “I should be the Nominee.” He explained why in several short statements.

Newt Gingrich once again demonstrated his depth of knowledge dealing with the issues that concerned the audience. His responses we clear, concise and on point without swaying from the topic until after the statements were completed. “Maximizing bicker is probably not the road to the White House.” He would challenge President Obama to 3 hour debates with only a time clock to debate the issues.

Michele Bachmann chimed in occasionally as the gentlemen commanded the most time throughout the debate. She mentioned the President is the one who has a problem with immigration as his Aunt and Uncle are here illegally and he ignores it. She wants to build a double walled fence with security all across the border. 113 billion dollars to pay for all illegal immigrants and we need to stop that. Build the fence, enforce English as the official language and work for the people to stop spending money that we don’t have.

Anchor babies are a problem as Michele told how illegals come into this country just to have their children because of the 14th amendment. We have to address this issue and solve the problem of illegals using the amendment to have access to those magnets available to them.

Mitt stated ” Everyone loves legal immigrants”. According to Mitt there are 4.5 million foreigners who want to come into this country legally but cannot because of our immigration problem.  Mr. Romney’s messages was to turn off the magnets that entice them into this country illegally. With the free housing, the employers who are willing to hire illegals to which Rick Perry jumped at the chance to attack once more.   He accused Romney of hiring illegals for two years while knowing they were illegal. The audience on several occasions booed Perry as he continued to press the issues signifying they have had enough of the bickering and wanted to hear solutions especially when he stated “You failed as Governor.”  Perry didn’t help his campaign tonight with his combatant attitude.

Herman Cain received a huge round of applause when he restated his stance with his statement concerning the protesters on Wall Street a few weeks ago.  Anderson ask if he stood by his remarks “If you don’t have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself.” Herman explained the problem wasn’t Wall Street it was the government who gave them the money when they shouldn’t have. Ron Paul agreed stating those involve with the crash never went to jail after all the committee hearings to seek answers to why the problems happened.

If you watch the debate you will find the audience was there with hopes the candidates would offer solutions to the problems persistent in this country. The received some of what they wanted however the constant bickering had many individuals rolling their eyes in disbelief on what they were hearing. If the candidates want to be the Republican nominee they are going to have to present solutions and not personal attacks on those on stage with them.


Why Are They Demonstrating on Wall Street?

October 12, 2011

For the past three weeks demonstrators have taken signs, cameras and blow horns to march on Wall Street and other venues across the nation.   As we watch the evening news reports or read articles from the major news sources it appears as though there is no real structure to this demonstration.  So, Why are they demonstrating on Wall Street?

At first glance those in the crowd with their signs are saying Wall Street caused all this unemployment, caused the housing market to crumble and caused families all across the nation to loss their lives savings.  Wall Street executives are really bad people because common everyday American’s are suffering.  So they march with signs from SEIU, WE THE PEOPLE, Change the World and a host of thousands more to express their discontent with the greed that crushed America.

We believe there is a reason to march on Wall Street however our spin is not that of those stomping the ground in front of Bank of America or any place else.  We at Patriot Express Radio believe in the capitalist society that creates jobs through innovation, hard work and a vision for the future. Anyone can succeed in America if they do not become overburdened with taxes, regulations or bureaucracies that insist you can not accomplish what it is you set out to do.

Here is the real problem as we see it.  Let’s travel back in time to a place that was so much simpler, back in time before cell phones, Apple and Microsoft.  Back to the 60’s when  the boss or President of an organization got up every morning and headed to work to make an honest living for his/her family.  Those individuals may have been owners or the company or they could have been hired to run the company but they were there to produce results that earned everyone money at the end of the day, week, year and if the times were really good everyone in the organization would receive a bonus around Christmas time. Do you remember those days?

During the 1960’s the average salary for working class American’s was $8,363.42 calculated with figures from the BLS. Those who were able to obtain the title of CEO or President of  large companies in 1965 made a staggering 24 times the average salary of the lowest paid employee according to a report by Lawrence Mishel for the Economic Policy Institute dated June 21, 2006.

Throughout the past 50 years we have seen the disparity grow as CEO’s pay increased 100,200, 300, 400 and more times what the lowest paid employee made while those employed wages only increased  2-7% over the same period or time. If you get your calculator out input your current yearly wage multiplied by 250 (the happy medium to CEO’s 400X plus increase) what would you be making?  We understand the CEO or President  of any business negotiate their benefit package according to their wants and desires.  If those in charge of hiring offer or except the package so be it, capitalism working as it should.  However when those salaries impact the decision-making and the wages of those bottom tier employee’s the repercussions are sever.  This is what the protesters should be asking or demonstration, the disparity of  abilities to pay for product.

When you walk down the aisles of a grocery store to spend some of those hard earned dollars you worked for last week you have to price shop to get more bang for your buck as times are hard with a full fledged depression looming only months away. Pick up a box of Cheerios which cost $4.56 today or a 22 ounce box. Personally I cringe every time I go to the grocery store when I look at the prices. Of that $4.56 how much of that expense we pay goes to Kendall J. Powell’s benefits of over 12 million,  Roderick Palmore’s 3.1 million salary or the other top executives making 700 thousand or more?

Last year the total sales of all General Mills products amounted to 3.6 billion dollars with cost of goods being 2.25 billion, leaving a gross profit of 1.4 billion dollars. Remove the cost of administrative salaries, selling and general expenses of 809.6 million and there remains a profit for share holders after taxes, interest, repairs and other expenses of 332.5 million dollars. Of that 809.6 million the top officials of General Mills earn less than 10% of that total.

According to Doug Polarski, CEO of Sawyer TMS, “Board of Directors are interested in CEO’s with credibility which gives their companies a greater profile when dealing with banks, securities and other Boards during the course of business.  The main focus of the Board of Directors are to offer a benefit package to candidates they can not turn down to get them out of the market as CEO’s worth their package are in limited supply.

Some advice to those out there on the streets upset with their wages, work toward a goal whether a start-up company or an existing one to learn enough about the business and get yourself a benefit package you will be happy with because in America anything is possible.


Selflessness, That’s all that is required

September 28, 2011

Last night Governor Chris Christie was at the Reagan Library speaking about leadership and American Exceptionalism.  He spoke to the Republican audience for three quarters of an hour expressing his vision for America with insight on how a democracy works.  Governor Christie pulls no punches as he outlined the need to return to the days of Ronald Reagan when dealing with the issues and believing in the country.

Governor Christie spoke about how the former President “Said what he meant and meant what he said” as he quoted the Air Traffic Controller strike in August of 1981 during his rein in office. Reagan told the striking controllers they needed to return to work or they would be fired “In the end thousands refused and thousands were fired”  Chris goes on explaining the “Whole world was watching” the leadership of this country and the decisions made affects how they see us.  

Christie received some laughs as he continued the speech with “What happens here doesn’t stay here, this is not Vegas” America’s roll is defined by what we say and do at home. “Who we are at home, what we do with each other” is what sets the examples for all the world to understand this great nation.  We get results when we take action regardless of the political ramifications.  “Leadership and compromise” is the only way to reform, cap highest interest rates, and change public sector union contracts so the members pay for the health insurance and retirement funds so they will be there when needed.

The citizens need to hear the truth about where we are and what we need to do to achieve the goals that are good for the nation and the citizens. Congress no longer can effectively govern themselves as our President fails to act on the issues that American’s understand.  “When there is a problem you fix it” Christie emphasized with conviction as he spoke about how Reagan fixed it many times with great leadership. 

As leaders we need to show by example to the world we have our house in order. We need to control our markets, our housing, our jobs and concern ourselves with how other nations view our national affairs.  We should care what others think because we believe democracy and open markets work better than any other system.  If we convince exports and imports create freedom of choice others accepts the notion when they see our system works as intended.

Finally, Governor Christie took questions from the audience showing a side of him that the crowd loved and applauded with emotion unseen since the campaign of 2008 as the President so eloquently stated his “Hope and change” strategy.  He told those listeners in California and on the C-Span network “Real leaders don’t read polls, they change polls” when asked how he would wean individuals off entitlements and the employment picture. He stated he took bold actions when dealing with these problems in New Jersey so they could control the debt in his state. Along with that statement he also stated he was no genius but the solutions are filled with common sense approaches.

Another questioner implored with such emotion and passion that the Governor reconsider his position as she stated with all kidding aside “You are a very powerful and eloquent speaker,…. and I say this from the bottom of my heart…  we can’t wait another 4 years… please sir reconsider, …. please do it for my daughter, do it for our granddaughter, do it for our sons, we need you, your country needs you to run for President.”  This is a man who understands America with the answer to this lady, “I’m just a kid from Jersey who feels like I’m the luckiest guy in the world” being the Governor of his state.

Now we are at a point in time where the citizens of America are imploring a man, a Governor to fight for a country we love and sacrifice his own feelings of self worth to save this country from self destruction.  Remember when campaigns were ran by friends or businessmen who felt strongly about an individual who could do great things for this nation.  The candidate never travel across the country touting just how great they would be.  The people picked the candidate and went out to get the votes.  George Washington when asked to  serve as President responded with a statement of despair asking “Have I not yet done enough for my country! History proves he had not as he was elected with 100% of the electoral votes which no other candidate has ever done to date.

Governor Christie many citizens of this great nation need you to be our next President, not 6 years from now.  We need someone who does not want the job as Jerry Doyle stated today on his radio program.  As the lady in the audience imploded you so to does many other Americans. We need leadership in the White House, we need a Patriot in the White House, many Americans say “We need you Governor Christie.” Make the decision to fight for a country you love just as the George Washington was requested to do by accepting the challenge of being the next leader of the Greatest Nation in the World.  Selflessness will bring this country back to prosperity, Governor Christie for President, Senator Marco Rubio for V.P. a win win situation because as Jerry stated your not ready for the highest office in the land because you don’t feel it in your heart, but America does.


The New Mafia In America

September 25, 2011

After watching the committee meeting yesterday with Solyndra’s management pleading the fifth amendment after each question asked of them I was sicken as I realized for the first time in my life the new Mafia has arrived in America. This new Mafia doesn’t carry the Tommy guns of yesteryear, nor do they bomb the restaurant owner or the grocery stores who oppose extortion tactics, what they do is far worse.

Though they may not be packing the heat like the thugs of yesteryear they are just as dangerous to the American Citizens.  The mob figures of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s don’t hold a candle to those who now are the featured thugs of the new millennium.  Capone, Moran, Morelli, Pollizzi, even our own Bugsy Siegel in Las Vegas Nevada committed atrocities that scarred our city and towns; however they faded into the abyss as agents put them out of business. No such fate for this new Mafia, the agents of today refuse to touch them, they fear for their lives and those of their families unlike the Elliot Ness’s who dedicated careers to eliminating the criminal activities of these mobsters.

These members of the new Mafia look similar to you and I as they walk our streets and drive through our towns and cities, smiling and greeting individuals as they go and promising the world to those folks who would believe in their words.  These newest members of this Mafia who have infiltrated the soils of our nation can include members of Congress, Czars, and Cabinet members to the President, along with the President himself.

As we look back in history we can observe the patterns evolving as our politicians began to change the course of our nation through the same tactics used by syndicates all across America.  The mob sent figures into a grocery store to inform the owner they were in need of insurance, protection money so they wouldn’t have unimaginable disasters happen.  Today our politicians extort trillions of dollars from taxpaying citizens for items they don’t need nor want, like the solar panels of Solyndra.  If we don’t agree the mob is sent out to make life miserable for those who question their reasoning in way of tax audits, background checks into personal business or habits by Police, FBI or CIA agents.

Harry Reid and is band of minions continually threaten those who oppose him regardless of affiliation.  During the last debate with Sharron Angle his closing statement was ”  I am a fighter. I will continue to fight for what I believe is best for the American people. We have a long ways to go. But we have made some progress, and I’ll continue to do everything I can for the people of Nevada.” Get it, his statement wasn’t I will fight  for what my constituents believe in, it was I will continue to fight for what “I believe in”.

The Tea Party Patriots decided to stand up against unfair taxation policies prevalent in Congress today and were castigated as right-wing nuts, “Astroturf” Nazi’s and the list goes on and on and on. These members are not nuts or radicals, they are Americans who love their country and hate the politics that have eroded the quality of living for all citizens of this great nation. They are Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Independents, Conservatives and yes some liberals. Americans who felt strongly against the policies enacted by Congress.

Public sector unions created two classes of people. Those who get benefits for practically nothing and those who have to pay not only for their own benefits but those of the public sector union members too. These unions main goal was growth with the intent of raising money through dues to fill the coffers of those politicians willing to enact laws detrimental to the future of this country but not the unions.

The public sector union employees received benefits that no member of the private sector could ever imagine. Those public servants (politicians) working for all Americans somehow pulled the wool over our eyes and created a Mafia hierarchy that has devastated this nation.

Our elected officials offer or are offered payoffs and payouts in order to remain in power such as the mob syndicates had done for so many years creating power and wealth from illegal or unethical activities.  Our President allegedly helped in the funding of 554 million dollars to Solyndra, a company that never should have received one dime of taxpayer’s money as auditors would attest to today. He didn’t do this for the good of the country, he did it to push his green technology ideology on all Americans, insisting America needs this green technology such as the thugs preying on store owners back in the day.

This President as well as his predecessor  gave billions in stimulus money to GM and Chrysler to overt bankruptcy as reported by Obama after which he did pressure the industry to use the bankruptcy code and had taking away the investors 1st right of ownership only to handout billions to the union pensions as a blatant payoff for those unions help to get him elected with contributions in the millions to his Presidential campaign.

President Bush, our 43rd President appears to have offered Congress free rein if they would allow him to invade Iraq and Afghanistan. As the wars continued so too did the uncontrollable spending habits to the tune of a 4.8 trillion dollar increase to the national debt over his two terms as President.  President Obama will be considered the biggest spending in the history of our country as he is on track to add more than 6 trillion dollars to our national debt by the end of his first term.

No political party is exempt from this mob mentality as all parties have members using fear and divisiveness to drive their desires to get what they want.  This new Mafia must be stopped if we are to survive as a nation.  We must eradicate this venom from the Halls of Congress as quickly as we can or we will cease to be the Greatest Nation the World has ever known.

The problems we face in this country are not those of the Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians nor of the Independents. The problems we face are the problems of all Americans, regardless of race, creed or color.  We must unite as one to fight those mafia rulers to return our freedoms to the individuals.  We must inform Congress they no longer can pass laws which are unconstitutional.  We must stand together to return Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness back to our nation as written so many years ago. Together we can be the voice of America, for the good of America. Patriots one and all!
