Packing for a Long Trip

Posted in If I were President...., Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 4:26 am by Administrator

For many decades, corrupt politicians have been running government like they are packing for a long trip. Most citizens with travel experience know to pack light for long trips. We’ve all made the mistake of ‘over-packing’. Once on the trip we discover we don’t need everything we’ve packed. But we still have to lug the over-packed, heavy suitcase around. This suitcase seems to get heavier as the trip continues.

The U.S. is on a historical trip. It’s the greatest nation in the history of civilizations. But like many great nations before, government (through corrupt politicians) keeps putting stuff in the suitcase for this historical trip. The nation doesn’t need all this stuff because it will eventually weight down its carriers – the citizens.

Government, through power hungry, corrupt politicians, has made a major mistake. They have taken national concerns and have made them government responsibilities. Most of these responsibilities are not constitutional. The non-constitutional responsibilities are making government’s suitcase heavier than it should be. We don’t have the resources (tax-paying, citizen power) to carry it much longer.

The U.S. government suitcase has an entitlement sticker on it. It’s packed with welfare, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the post office, government contracts, etc. The U.S. trip has lasted over two centuries. But there are signs the trip is ending because of the suitcase’s weight.

As the suitcase gets heavier, there are signs that tax paying U.S. citizens won’t be able to or simply won’t carry it much longer. Corrupt politicians have made concerns about people’s individual financial status government’s responsibility even though it’s unconstitutional. They are expanding an unconstitutional responsibility of healthcare (Medicare/Medicaid) to unidentifiable limits. They are also trying to play god by controlling the world’s climate.

Between 1933 and 1935 government really began stuffing things into the suitcase. FDR’s New Deal put 14 government programs in. Many of these programs were said to be for short ‘trips’. Guess what: The corrupt politicians lied!

Government’s unconstitutional responsibility called welfare still exists today. It has had only one major reform. In 1996 Bill Clinton placed lifetime limits on those receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) payments. Welfare has made the suitcase heavier for all over the years.

The Social Security Act of 1935 created the single largest item in government’s suitcase. It consumes over 22% of total government expenditures. The Social Security Trustees’ Report stated that the Social Security Retirement System’s unfunded liability increased by $752 billion since the 1998 Trustee Report was published. This brings the total long-term unfunded liability to more than $19 trillion. The suitcase is getting very heavy.

Placing Medicare/Medicaid into government’s suitcase took two (2) decades. Harry Truman asked Congress in 1945 to establish a national health insurance plan. Not until 20 years later in 1965, after much debate (Regan’s famous speech) with warnings about ‘socialized medicine’ did President Johnson sign into law Medicare and Medicaid. Prescription benefits were also added too the suitcase’s weight in the 2000s. Ironically, Obama is trying to add extra healthcare weight in months with little citizen debate.

The U.S. Postal service began over two centuries ago. It’s going bust and is the future of the stuff in the suitcase. Note the 8.3.09 headline. It says it all. ‘WASHINGTON – Facing staggering financial losses, the Postal Service is looking at closing nearly 1,000 offices across the country.’

Cap and trade legislation could break the suitcase handle clean off. “Under the cap-and-trade system, the federal government would limit the total volume of CO2 that U.S. companies can emit each year and would issue permits that companies would be required to have for each ton of CO2 emitted.”

“Politicians love cap and trade because they can claim to be taxing “polluters,” not workers. Hardly (corrupt politicians lying again) Once the government creates a scarce new commodity — in this case the right to emit carbon — and then mandates that businesses buy it, the costs would inevitably be passed on to all consumers in the form of higher prices.”

All you acorners listen up! Your man, B.H. Obama is aiming to tax you with higher consumer goods prices!!! That’s your thanks for helping him win the white house.

The current administration is being ordered to pack even more stuff into its suitcase. Cap and trade and healthcare are two items that will rival the heaviness of Social Security. These ideas may be concerns but they are not constitutional responsibilities.

If I were president…..

I would first unpack the government suitcase and examine what’s in there. The most obvious item of note would be fraud. Deceptively spread throughout the suitcase, fraud is like the odor of dirty underwear. It permeates every other item in the suitcase. I would exam very program for fraud. And then I would eliminate fraud and its future.

I see fraud as a step-sister to justice. Fraud is blind. It has no ethnicity, color or sexual orientation. But fraud is contagious. Fraudulent schemes to swindle tax dollars are limitless.

Like any most diseases, fraud has a cure. The cure requires surgery. Naturally, the opposition to surgically eliminating fraud would surface immediately.

The opposition would be the pro-fraud crowd backed by the ACLU. They would call me a racist, Nazi, un-American, homophobe, radical extremists, right wing nut whatever ….. Ultimately, the pro-fraud crowd will claim that “attacking fraud is an abuse of democracy” even though they don’t believe in democracy.

To this pro-fraud crowd, I say get real. You are being manipulated by other peoples’ ideas/causes. You’re a joke waiting for a punch line.

The ideas/cause don’t have any long-term benefits for you or your families. The ideas/cause is your handler’s wet dream of global domination. These handlers rule you. Whoever is giving you marching orders from is playing you for a sucker. Acorn, media and union people and all those bloogers are on the priority sucker-list.

You suckers get to call people with different ideas – names. You get to stir the hate pot inside your being. You can feel like winners because your brand of ideas is dictating how citizens have to live their lives.

Your ultimate victory slogan is ‘misery loves company’. At the core of your being, you are miserable and need fantasies of feeling morally superior. The joke’s punch line is – you are carrying the same suitcase as the people you are calling names!

What are the acorns, media and union people, bloggers getting for supporting government induced socialism, fascism and communism? If you are one of these ask yourself a few basic questions. How is the ideas/cause you’re supporting:
• putting food on your table?
• ensuring freedom for your kids and grand kids?
• giving you the quality of life that your politicians enjoy?
• improving your opportunities to earn more money?
• translating to a more secure lifestyle – today in your lifetime?

Whether you realize it or not, you workers are united behind carrying an extremely heavy suitcase. The stuff inside the suitcase will boil you to death like the frog in the gradually warming pot. Before you know it you and the people you’re calling names will be serfs working for the politician lords and corporate kings. Congratulations, you are helping to usher in Feudalism!

Corrupt politicians have and are continuing to over-pack the government’s suitcase. Citizens need politicians that will lighten the suitcase not make it heavier! After all, we all are hoping to extend the U.S.’s historical trip, aren’t we?

An election revolt will send corrupt politicians the ‘lighter suitcase’ message. Every incumbent politician needs to be voted out of office. The longer they stay in office, the more corrupt they become.

Every citizen will benefit from a lighter suitcase, even the acorn people.

VOTB: Vote Out The (suitcase over-stuffing) Bums – every incumbent, every election.

In the 2010 elections, we all can start unpacking the government’s suitcase.

Go to the VOTB store and spread the unpacking idea around!
