Why We Must Get Big Money Out of Politics

The most important thing we must do to save our democracy is to get big money out of politics. It’s a prerequisite to accomplishing everything else. Today, big money continues to corrupt American politics – creating a vicious cycle that funnels more wealth and power to those at the top and eroding our democracy. In the 2018 midterm elections, wealthy donors and Super-PACs poured millions into the campaigns of the same lawmakers who voted to pass the 2017 tax cuts, which gave them huge windfalls. Consider conservative donors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, whose casino business received an estimated $700 million windfall, thanks to Trump and Republicans’ tax cuts. The couple then used some of this extra cash to plow more than $113 million dollars into the 2018 election, breaking the record for political contributions by a single household. That’s not a bad return on investment – for them. All told, almost 40 percent of total contributions in the 2018 midterms came from people who donated $10,000 or more. Yet these mega-donors comprise a tiny 0.01 percent of the U.S. population. It’s a worsening vicious cycle: Lawmakers cut taxes and slash regulations for their wealthy campaign donors. Mega-donors and corporations funnel some of that money back into our political system to keep their lackeys in power. Politicians then propose another round of tax cuts, subsidies or bailouts to secure even more donations. If this isn’t corruption, I don’t know what is. It also breeds cynicism in our democracy. The game seems rigged because it is. A 2015 poll found that the majority of Americans say lawmakers are corrupt, out of touch with their constituents, and beholden to special interests. In the 2018 midterms, Americans demanded an end to the corruption. And there are signs lawmakers are finally getting the message. House Democrats’ first piece of legislation aims to end the big-money takeover. We must end this vicious cycle in order to reclaim our democracy. We must get big money out of politics. Now! Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men. — John Adams Are you awake yet?

Iran No Longer Uses The US Dollar – War Is Imminent

Iran no longer uses the US dollar in foreign trade transactions, replacing it with other currencies In trade exchanges with the foreign countries, Iran uses other currencies, including Chinese yuan, euro, Turkish lira, Russian ruble and South Korean won. However, the U.S. dollar has been removed. The US dollar currently makes up about 2/3rds of the worlds global reserve currency. This is because nearly every oil-exporting country in the world exclusively sells their oil in US dollars (the Petrodollar), so nations are forced to hoard large amounts of US dollars, allowing the US to print it almost to infinity without hyper-inflating their currency. The US government has been doing everything it can to protect their petrodollar status around the globe. How do they do this? Well, they wage WAR! Iraq dropped the U.s dollar in 2001. We all know how that turned out. In 2001, Iraq switched from the petrodollar and began selling their oil in Euro’s. Soon after, sanctions were placed on them followed by an invasion with massive destruction to their infrastructure. The Bush administration galvanized support for the invasion with lies about supposed WMD’s that Saddam was going to use on either his own people or Israel. Libya dropped the U.s dollar in 2009. We all know how that turned out. In 2009, President Muhammar Gaddafi proposed the African states shift to a new Golden Dinar that was actually made from physical gold. Many of these interested nations were using the French franc (CFA) circulating as a prime African currency. The US also felt threatened to loose the petrodollar in this oil rich region. It would have meant huge liquidity in the trillions of dollars they no longer controlled as well as potential hyper inflation for the US dollar who had just quintupled their money supply to pay for 2 major invasions (Iraq and Afghanistan) and to offset their losses from the 2008 recession. Fearing a diminished influence by the western central banks, the French, UK and US then attacked Libya and utterly destroyed their infrastructure leaving them to be ravaged by years of terror from Al-Qaeda and other factions. Syria dropped the U.s dollar in 2006. We all know how that turned out. Syria stopped selling their oil in petrodollars, They had major sanctions placed on them with Syria being invaded by outside terrorist organizations supported, funded and trained by the US government. Iran dropped the U.s dollar in 2018. Now there is talk about... read more

Government Corruption Must Stop

As if by design, more money is being filtered out and diverted from the general public and into the hands of Large Special Interests. This is being done in a variety of ways which includes the gig_economy where we have many short term jobs at the commission with no benefits, especially no healthcare and no pensions two essential elements people need to be secure. So instead of requiring or providing these necessities “our” government looks the other way as its citizenry slips into the greatest wealth disparity it’s ever seen. Why? Because our government is no longer ours to control. It is controlled by the very same interests that it’s supposed to regulate. Now it is the fox that is watching the henhouse, the tail that is wagging the dog. You get the picture. So now that we can see the problem what is it that we should do? I’m surprised the fire and pitchforks haven’t come out by now, but I guess people are too busy feeding their heads. But when they’ve decided they’ve suffered enough, you who know what needs to be done. You just won’t do it. Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be easy. Those who currently hold most the power and money are hopelessly addicted to such and will not be giving it up without a huge fight. This is why it is absolutely essential to first educate ourselves, then educate others. Educate others with the truth! Our goal among other things, to rightfully claim what we never should have delegated away… the right to govern ourselves by becoming the lawmakers without the need of intermediaries. This we can definitely achieve, but not without some effort. But nothing worth anything is rarely obtained without it. As if you still sitting there thinking we can’t change the world, it just means your one of the ones that won’t. Are you awake yet?

Why Mess With The Electoral College?

Take a look at the image above. This is the very reason we have an Electoral College. Rather than produce a top-quality presidential candidate who loves America and respects the Constitution, Democrats are working on a way to circumvent the Electoral College, the method by which we have elected presidents of the United States since 1789. Article 2, Section 1 lays out the system. But like most other aspects of constitutional Rule of Law, leftists hold it in contempt. As Governer Polis said… “I’ve long supported electing the president by who gets the most votes. It’s a way to move towards direct election of the president.” Sorry, Governor, but you are woefully misinformed. “Direct” election of the president is exactly what we don’t want. It wasn’t a goal in the Constitution. Had we gone that way in 2016, Hillary Clinton would have become president on the strength of her vote totals based almost exclusively on a handful of major urban hubs. Certainly not a candidate representative of the whole nation. Leftists would love a national popular vote for president. It would most assuredly give rise to greater voter fraud, further fracturing of the political system, and, despite leftist claims, reduced power of individual votes. If anything, 2016 proves that we do need an Electoral College. Clinton almost had it locked up by campaigning in only a handful of urban areas — mostly the big blue vote buckets like LA, NYC, Chicago, and San Francisco. None of this can be explained to leftists, though. They cannot win in the arena of ideas, so they want to change the rules of the game. So far, they have been very clever about exploiting the so-called problems of the Electoral College. The first thing to remember is that there is no problem with the Electoral College. Except if you are a Democrat who can only win by pitting segments of the nation against one another. Something to think about anyway. Are you awake Yet?

Are We Close To A Dictatorship In America?

Every time a president declares a “national emergency” in order to get his way on a particular issue, the closer we are to a dictatorship. Who needs Congress or the people if the president can make the decision on issues by himself? This is a very dangerous precedent. One thing that all Americans want to believe is that it can’t happen here. But it can happen anywhere. It may be happening right now. When a president can just do what he wants and pass national emergency orders at will, we may not be that far off. But it really couldn’t happen here, could it? Are you awake... read more
