A friend of mine sent me this link to a video of US Rep Michelle Bachman (R-MN) discussing the currying of favor by individuals and their success through their US Representative or Senator. Is that what our country has become?

Link: Gangster Government

What Rep Bachmann describes is not a constitutional republic or democracy. What Rep Bachmann describes is an aristocratic oligarchy of autarchs who laud out favors as liege lords. Sad if this is continually allowed to exist. Break out your dictionary if that did not make sense. You need to know what people in your community are doing to garner special favors from their liege lords … I mean US Representatives and Senators.

These people in Congress enjoy multi-year terms and a certain level of expectation that there is not enough dissatisfaction with what they are doing to get them fired: aka, unelected. They can easily become or develop the mentality that they are the new aristocracy and in office for life. In many ways they already are. They determine their own pay raises and make you pay for it out of your taxes. They determine what you can and cannot do. In several instances, they do not apply to themselves the rules they apply to you.

If, as Ms Bachmann asserts, an autarch … sorry, a US Representative or Senator can go to a private or nationalized corporation and exert their influence to give favor, what does that say of our national government?

My question is – as we come to the elections this November 2nd – what are we willing to tolerate?

Do we pursue with vigor a conservative, constitutional republic as the Tea-Partiers promote, or do we tolerate the status quo and sit in the pot as the water slowly comes to a boil as toads oblivious to the heat?

There is a lot of reflection back to the Federalist Papers and other writings of the Founding Fathers. What is most often missed is the seriousness of their commitment. Failure menat their certain and public death. Failure meant their families’ certain enslavement or public death. All of their property, inherited heirlooms, and future were forfeit at failure. I argue that there would be many Tories and Loyalists numbered among those supposing leadership today.

What price victory? All, sir. All.

Please reread your US Constitution and Declaration of Independence. They are worthwhile to read and know. Do not guess or lean to opinion. Know the matter yourself and argue the same. If you do not, there is a description from the Judeo-Christian Bible where Samuel the prophet tells the people about the kindness of kings. Absolute rulers only take. They do not give.

If you do not stand at the cost of a little inconvenience now, you may not have a choice in your inconveniences later.

Go vote.

HR 4646-The “Trojan Horse” Tax – DJohn – Open Salon [open.salon.com ]

As many of you know recent polls show an utter mistrust between the citizens of this great country and its government. The reasons for this are many and another one has just reared its ugly head: HR 4646-The Debt Free America Act.

Commentary by Dave “Doc” Rogers, c.20101001

This is a variation on VAT but it targets specifically banking transactions; which is easy enough since most people use their debit/check cards rather than credit or cash.

Who gets hurt by this initially? Resellers do. Infrastructure and reporting changes will be added costs to an already margin stripped business economy. Reduced margins means lower to no profits. Lower to no profits means: can’t buy, can’t invest, can’t hire. Ultimately, it means more businesses close.

Who else gets hurt by this? The Consumer. The costs of infrastructure and upgrades will be passed to the consumer who will pay more for products and services they are already buying less of. Higher costs on reduced available income means fewer purchases. There is an economic spiral downwards that begins to occur at this point. Not buying so less sold so less made so less needed made so less employed so less money available to buy so less sold … until collapse.

What else can happen with this? More uncontrolled spending with an easy taxation generation vehicle in place. With the way this Congress and current Exec Admin like to spend money that isn’t there to spend, a hidden tax vehicle like the one descirbed will give Congress and the Treasury a slider they can pull anytime they need more revenue. That is until the system breaks due to impeded cashflow.

Our economy in the USA is built upon the exchange of trade goods and services. Without this exchange or flow of goods and services the system collapses in due course. Any onerous taxation, fines, tarrifs, etc placed on the system will eventually strangle the system like weeds in a flower bed.

An unrestrained government is a bane upon the people they govern. A restrained government is a boon to the people who govern the government. If the average citizen does not take ownership of their citizenship and govern as detailed by the current US Constitution, then they will be governed by those who seek to rewrite the US Constitution in a manner benefitting those who will govern. The choice is simple. Govern or be governed. Own your citizenship or become the vassal to the State.
