We Need Politicians Like Daniel Hannan

This is how I expected my representatives to act when we (Americans) feel our leaders are going in the wrong direction. I applaud Mr. Hannan for speaking the truth and not sugar coding it. We need people in our government who can represent us like Mr. Hannan just did at the European Parliament.

Political Food For The Mind

At what point do our representatives start to listen to us? Who is supporting our government’s decisions? You tell me because this clearly shows people are not for what's going on.

Below is the President's Approval Index. The reason I’m showing this is not because I’m trying to bash on Obama. I’m simply showing this to show that as soon as the newness of this president wares off you will see the true opinions of the American people. The more this government speeds, keeps making foolish mistakes, and continues to not listen to the American people, you are going to see his numbers fall through the floor. At what point will the government start listen to the US people?

Here are a few other important numbers I looked at from Rasmussen.

Taxes Will Go Down

Gov't Spending Will Go Up

Congress: Excellent/Good

The US is on the Wrong Track

America's Best Days in Future

Tax Increases Hurt Economy?
Yes - 51%
No - 23%

Tax Cuts Help Economy?
Yes - 63%
No - 13%

Pay More than Fair Share of Taxes?
Yes - 52%
No - 30%
Here is the link to the entire report. After looking at this I finally don't feel alone.

This Headline Say's It All

In the latest fallout over AIG's massive bonuses which the government failed to regulate, the house voted to use the tax code as a weapon.

Back on January 13th I went on a vent session and this is exactly what I said would happen. It's sad to see people approving our government’s mistakes. These guys (government) passed a bill that Chris Dodd added language about AIG and allowing their bonuses. Let me say that again….our government pass the stimulus bill and ALLOWED AIG to give out the bonuses. Why is this AIG’s fault? They should have never received the money in the first place and failed if it was over compensated and wrong. Back to Chris Dodd….he first lies and said he didn’t add any language to the stimulus package and 24 hours later says he did add the language. Now they (government) are feeling the heat so they once again point the finger at someone else and destroy innocent peoples lives. Literally, letting people put death threats on people and allowing it to happen? If they (government) would have never gotten involved in the private sector we wouldn't be talking about this. AIG would have filed chapter 11, restructured, and would probably be on their way out of their own mess by now. If not they would have failed and some other company would have bought them. This is exactly why the government should never get involved in any type of business. They (government) cannot manage themselves, how do you expect them to manage a business? You want these guys in charge of our health care, schools, and retirement…..??????

Watch the video below. At what point do you think AIG is responsible and should have the American people sending them death threats? Look at who's the real threat here. AIG or our government? I know the answer to this one, and I hope you do too. This is so black and white and easy to see what's going on. They (government) lied and act like it's nothing and will now pass bills to rob from people who had nothing to do with this bill. This is leading down a very bad road for all of us.

Now they have passed a bill to tax these bonuses, and again without thinking and in a hurry (just like every stimulus bill passed). Your liberty has just been knocked down another notch. I hope the government doesn’t think you make to much money because I guess they can pass a bill whenever they want and take all your money. No matter what mistakes they (government) have made they will never fall… they will only take you down.

Hold Your Elected Officials Accountable

I haven’t blogged in a while due to my extremely busy schedule and working hard to try and insure a future for my kids. At this point most of you are saying….here’s where he goes off on his little soap box. That’s not the case today. I have, as I’m sure you have, witnessed enough destruction to our country with our government thinking they know everything about business, and never having to be held responsible for any of their actions. We have all seen how our government can make deals WE THE PEOPLE don’t want, break contracts whenever they want, decided which laws they should and should not enforce, and so on. I have decided I’m going to continue to call my State and Federal officials but I’m going to tone down the blog. I ask all of you to please hold your representatives accountable for their decisions and actions. Do not just sit back and complain, but make a phone call, send an e-mail, or even write a letter.

I want to share with you a video. I ask you to please not alienate our country. This is an awesome place to live and a place where dreams can come true if you’re willing to work hard and make sacrifices. This country is ours not the governments. WE THE PEOPLE make this country what it is not the government. Good luck and God Bless America.
