It was reported by Johna Goldberg this morning that Newsweek  Magazine has enlisted the services of President Obama to write a piece on the current tragedy in Haiti. Although a noble cause, and truth be told Obama will have one of his staffers write the piece, this request is further evidence of the blurring of the lines between the press and the political process.

Also of note is the fact that in the past Newsweek has had a rather aggressive tilt in their coverage of Obama and his administration. The question that comes to mind is; why not just issue a press release which is normal SOP in cases similar to Haiti’s tragedy. Considering this point, the next viable question is what is the motive or payoff for the exclusive scoop to Newsweek?

Payoff:  Newsweek is one of Obama’s top supporters,  they have kowtowed and idolized Obama from the beginning, the bill is now being called due now that  Newsweeks redesign and change of  focus is coming out of the gate.  They need a home run to pull this off, what better way than to plaster Obama’s face on their newly redesigned rag.

Motivation:  All kidding aside, Obama loves Obama, no mirror is safe, I can see the Prez in 20 years (living in exile) paging through all the covers he garnered while in office, the man is a narcissist plain and simple.

Not to dilute the crisis in Haiti, but this is not the best use of office to be pandering to the media, I don’t think the subscription rate in Haiti will increase due to this article, and by now becoming Author In Chief it further degrades the office of President.

Now if I can only find that recipe  piece by Lincoln, or was that FDR, no Trueman, I am making the President some humble pie!

Politico is reporting that the  Democrat-Republican duo of  Senator Chris Dodd and Sen Richard Shelby have been working diligently behind the scenes in an effort to produce a workable “bipartisan” financial reform bill.  The bills talking points are listed below.

• “We seek to end ‘Too Big to Fail.’”

• “We need to protect American taxpayers from future bailouts by enhancing our resolution regime.”

• “We agree that consumer protections need to be strengthened.”

• “We believe that our regulatory structure needs to be modernized and streamlined while preserving the dual-banking system.”

• “We agree that the Federal Reserve should be more focused on its core responsibility — conducting monetary policy.”

• “And finally, we need to modernize regulation and oversight of the derivatives market.”

Dodd’s first attempt was focused on the development of a single agency which was backed by the Obama administration which would have had oversight over the new agency. Republican deference of further consolidation of power under the presidents control was attacked quickly and efficiently by key Republican members, so much so that Dodd requested top members break into two member bi-partisan teams in an effort to find consensus.

Both Dodd and Shelby went on to state, “These talks have been extremely productive.” Many had feared that with Dodd and Frank involved the process would mirror the dissension of the health care debate, so far cooperation and bi-partisanship have been the rule.

Not unlike health care, many industry insiders and economists are of the opinion that the banking system has sufficient “watch dog” agencies, and the problems of the current crisis was due to political interference, and K street lobbyist. Several attempts as early as 2004 were proffered to the Senate Banking Committee addressing most if not all of the problems that caused the bursting of the housing bubble, which were blocked by both Dodd and Frank who were deep in the pockets of the banking industry, and their K street schwag merchants.

Regardless if the new financial reform is just window dressing to distract attention from the real cause of the housing crisis, it is refreshing to see that both parties appear to working in concert to ostensibly improve oversight. The final bill will be the answer to the new found bi-partisan love fest, but given the blood letting over health care the bills effectiveness is highly doubtful.

Looks Simple Doesn’t It

ObamaCare has managed to pass the first and second hurdles to a final vote, palms have been greased, promises have been made, souls have been sold, time now for the donnybrook, and the final product. Remembering back to the dog days of summer, when the grassroots Tea Party movement was so prevalent never would I have guessed I would still be writing about health care. Certainly more important issues would be on the table by December, we still have rampant runaway deficits, unemployment closing on depression like numbers, and two wars.

The current path of the Democratic party appears to be of the strategy to pass some sort of health care bill before the end of the year. The rush is, first Obama promised, second if ObamaCare drags out too long it will severely damage the Democratic party in the 2010 elections. Most think the Democratic losses in 2010 are a shoe in, but nothing could be further from the truth if the Republican party cannot consolidate the factions within the right side of politics.

Republicans should look at what worked for Obama and steal a page from his campaign, demonize; blame all the worlds ill’s on your opponent, fantasize; if you follow me, note the me, the world will be a better place “I” am here to take care of you, but switch it to, freedom over expansion of  “The Government State”.

Currently the middle to far right has fractioned into individual platforms, the Big Tent is a bunch of Tpees at the moment, and still no clear unifier is standing out.  This is dangerous in that the idea of individual country states of consistent morals and political beliefs could step out of the union.  Not as far fetched or radical as one might think, the preponderance of the monies being spent or will be spent for all this Hopey Changing is going to the core citys or population centers.  Little of this money will find its way into most red states, so why should Omaha have to pay for Chicago’s health care?  A uniter is needed, or at least a good organizer to pull the right of center together.

I am afraid the Republican party doesn’t want to get it’s hands dirty and would rather sit and watch the show from the balcony, therein lies the problem of the entire political process, protect the position. By being focused on maintaining or exploiting power, the battle is fought mostly on defense, with rare opportune moments of attack, or fight for survival. When survival is the highest motive it is consuming, you don’t risk injury when trying to survive, it becomes hard to legislate from a cave.

Back on point, with the asperous relationship of the majority, 60 is hard to come by, the Democrats and Obama have dumped all if not most of their political capital on passing this bill, and to this date we still don’t know what the final bill will be.

But the Obama administration pulled off a minor success in buying the last 3-4 votes, they voted unanimously as a party, this is now their legacy. Time will tell as to the success or damage of this coup, all indications are this bill will be like numerous other government programs, bleeding money, highly inefficient, and unaccountable, just like the politicians who run them.

One year after the election our country sits on the precipice of collapse politically, economically, and morally and we sit in this position due mostly to the policies of the current administration.  Regardless of the propaganda coming out of the White House about the reasons for our troubles, our worsening  situation is clearly attached to President Obama and his leadership to date.

Rather than detract or extol the decisions of the Obama team, it is of higher importance to recognize how by continuing to proceed as we are could result in a national implosion on the grandest scale.

The obvious divisions between the two primary parties has been written on to great length, what is being ignored is the segmentation by the people of the United States into sub-segments within those two parties and how the leadership void within these segments is fueling the fire to further division.  Anthropologically this move is borne out of dissatisfaction with the status quo, which was artfully used by the Obama handlers to push their agenda of “Change You Can Believe In”, the key and dismissed aspect of this move was and still is what this change entailed.

For all intent and purpose and actionable legislation put forth to date, the “change” is not something the large majority of the populace DOES believe in, and by bulldozing ahead with the party’s nebulous shadow policies geared at consolidation of wealth and power for personal and political gain has created  a national animus that is fermenting to unstable levels, and suggestive actions.

We are a nation being run by a minority (platform)  acting in the pursuit of a majority consensus with no clear delineation of public policy,  evading all the while the wishes of  plurality!  Or simply put, we have an administration which THRIVES on conflict and uses that conflict to push its agenda of which is only known to them, and is implemented over the wishes of the people that elected them to serve.

By the Obama team pursuing this tact, a void of dissenting opinion and differing agendas is sprouting on a national level.  This “grassroots”  ideology is consistent in that is is inconsistent, case in point; the rise of the rogue.  If one were to look at the actual definition of the word “rogue” they just might not select it as title of a book?  Forgoing the definition, and looking at which it professes to support, going rogue has been marketed as doing things against the norm, or a return to founding conservative principals, all well and good, but where does that leave the “conservative” who was in place prior to the new definition being promoted as a NEW platform?

The antithesis, or far left point of view is diametrically opposed to the “rogue platform” and just as stridently pushes it’s agenda, “big government is good”.  In between  these two political forces a cadre of special interests and fragmentation’s of thought reside, which further  impedes any national consensus or action, the big tent’s are missing their anchors.

In essence our nation is searching for meaning, this is not new and is a byproduct of founding documents on which we govern, but the difference this time is the disconnect is foundational, is government and its control the answer, or the people for which it stands?

The answer to this question will determine the likelihood of Americas world status for future generations, and although the problems we face are not quite so simplistic, the way in which we solve them is.

Do we as citizens of a free republic abdicate to the wishes of our politicians, or are we a nation OF the people, the decision of which faction will lead the majority to this goal is our choice, the freedom of that choice is not questionable, and the key to our survival as a nation depends on it.

Nan, in her ever present cheery Botox induced craze stated “Obama must make his case on Afghanistan”, jeeze thanks Nan.

To further confuse the issue, with the paper still wet from Obama’s signature, the lefts old pal Denny K. is rumored to be developing the following; “Pelosi said she expects Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, to introduce a resolution calling for an immediate withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. That will probably be the first vote the House takes on this issue”.

Blind worship be dammed, the rats need a job in 2010 and 2012, and with Obama’s poll numbers free falling to historic levels for the first year President, the exodus for the ropes will be like the doors opening at Fileans after Christmas sale!

Politicians are famous for saying one thing and doing another, but Professor Obama has taken that to new heights. The once promising presidency is now mired in a litany of struggles from both within and outside of his party.

You have to wonder what could the Obama Administration, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the rest of the pile on group be thinking? Could it be that they know something we don’t? Is the world going to end in 2012, or are they just plain greedy opportunist, I believe the latter. Over the last two weeks, we have seen the continued drive to pass health care regardless that the issue is polling 61% against, cap and trade is being worked, financial reform has passed the house, the debt ceiling is being raised by 1.8 TRILLION and Obama visited the left side of the world in Copenhagen pledging the United States is “on-board” with carbon reduction beyond reasonable and economically damaging levels.

It is important to note that none of the proposed legislation is necessary, nor wanted per the latest polls, but the democratic leadership along with President Obama continue to drive on pel-mel, risking party seats, and possible control over both the house and senate. Many a pundit have tried to rationalize this aberrant behavior and find the trigger or root cause for this massive redistribution of wealth and expansion of government, read on.

Theory one: Ivory towers, the leadership and members of Washington see themselves as untouchable, they have become detached from the reality outside of the beltway, their focus is so narrow that their narcissist needs for power, validation and conquest is blinding them to the real purpose and foundation of their job description. The constituency has allowed this damaging detachment and in fact has enabled their idiosyncratic actions for decades allowing the career politicians to become deeply ensconced into sub-segments of power groups or gangs, with clearly delineated corporate favoritism and causes being implemented for pure personal gain.

Theory two: Opportunism, the Democratic party has been the whipping boy to the Republican party since Bill Clinton, they have begrudgingly played the game all the while developing the strategy unfolding now. They have not had a serious presidential candidate that could appease the segments of the population required to carry the election. Along came the spider, Obama with the assistance of Soros, ACORN, big labor, and a top notch media team packaged the new hope of the left to appear as a moderate, they campaigned on change knowing full well that the people were weary of politics as usual and were growing tired of Americas involvement two wars of which after the weapons of mass destruction were not found slid to abysmal levels of public approval. With the added assistance from Hollywood liberals, a full blown media attack took place, the message was precise, consistent, and droned in to the hearts and minds of anyone in earshot. It also was of great assistance that President Obama was a bit of a ham and natural actor, he carried the moderate message to the people every waking moment for close to two years prior to last years election. As some late comers to the party are now beginning to realize, this message was nothing more than an effort to pull the wool over the eyes of the American public, and our new leader is not what he said he was, but a left of left liberal with his own personal agenda, or in other words, President Obama and his handlers lied to get the prize, the oval office, trust be dammed they pulled it off.

Theory Three: Aliens, as was witnessed in Copenhagen, our supreme leader was in contact with his Grand Poo Bah who called him while in Europe and forgot to put the sky mute button on and left a huge distinct circular cloud. Knowing no evidence was to be left behind, Russia came to the aid of Obama and pawned off the cloud as a test missile gone awry, for their help the Grand Poo Bah gave them Mars.

In reality only those behind closed doors know what the grand plan is, so much for transparency, but one clear truth is evident, the middle class or worker bees will bare the brunt of the aftermath, and that my fellow Americans is not freedom!

Shocking revelation isn’t it, no you say? Well maybe not, I contend that Obama is who he always has been, a community organizer feeding off the fringes of society, employing radical, (yes I said radical) methods to cram down his policies on the very people that put him in power.

Here is what we know, Obama began his political career in Chicago in 1996, serving from 1997 to 2004, during this period Obama gained the reputation of using “hardball” political tactics serving the south side of Chicago. Obama’s focus then as it is now was to serve the disenfranchised, he actually did vote during his term of service, unlike his Senate voting record his direction and platform was clear and precise.

Several of Obamas pet projects were, homicide interrogations be recorded, reformation of campaign finance, and allocation of tax credits for the poor, and the elimination of racial profiling. Obama was also schooled in Chicago politics by several of the top known leaders of the Chicago political arena, his first run at political office he had his opponents knocked off the ballot by challenging the nominating petitions, Chicago politics 101.

After being elected to the Senate in 2007, Obama’s voting record during his short tenure was to vote the Democratic party line 97% of the time, or 10% more often than the Democratic average. Also during his short stay in the Senate Obama had 630 opportunities to vote on various legislation, he missed or did not vote 282 times or as a percentage during the time period of 12/5/2007-6/28/08 Obama showed up for 44.8% of the total available voting opportunities. In an attempt at fairness Obama ranks third in missed votes with Senator John McCain ranking second, and coming in first Tim Johnson who missed the 2007 Senate session due to a serious medical condition.

So in review of the above information, our President has seven years of state senate experience, served from 2004 to 2007 in congress, announced his run for presidency on 10/22/06, or less than 10 years after first being elected to office. Clearly not statesman street cred, and rather ambitious, some say arrogant that he even considered running given his lack of national political experience. So it should be no surprise that Obama continues to produce misstep after misstep resulting in his free fall at the polls and lack of public confidence.

So it is clear that Obama did not win the race based on his record, he won by following a script written by the power players in the Democratic party which took the majority in 2006, who had been held in check during most of the last 25 years by Republicans and moderate Democrats. The far left segment of supporters knew their candidate could not win the popular vote by pushing a shadow agenda of feeding the beast (government), they needed a candidate who appeared as a moderate, a uniter, or put simply an outsider.

If ever the metaphor fits it does in this case, “be careful what you wish for you might just get it”, now that Obama and his team of handlers won the holy grail they have nary a clue what to do next. Although the Obama consortium has been successful in pleasing the radical left with the Stimulus plan, and bank bail outs, done in the first months of the administration, their momentum has slowed to an impasse. Cap and Trade, health care, the two wars, financial reform, are all basically at a stand still, with once loyal members fleeing the ship in an effort to save any semblance of their political careers.

After one year here are the observations in need of clarity.

Health care although important is not the critical issue of the day, a 2000 plus page bill written with so many mouths to feed it will burn money like water through a sieve, leaving a monumental debt to for future generations which will further dilute America as a world power.

Cap and Trade, the new socialism under another name, what better way to spread the wealth than to tax the producing nations in to oblivion while feeding the fruits of that labor to underdeveloped nations. This is nothing more than a consumption tax focused on free enterprise.

Financial Reform, the proposed financial reform is ostensibly being put in place to “avoid” another housing melt down, real reason, centralize power under one roof to better control the flow of money and its uses. The fallacy of financial reform is the very individuals that created the problem are now designated to fix it, IE; Barney Frank, and Chris Dodd along with the assistance of Tim Geithner plan on reining in the abuses of the past housing bubble, really, no not really. Barney Frank was the leading advocate of freeing up the mortgage markets by offering financing to the underprivileged, his continued interference and stonewalling stopped reforms directed at Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac to tighten underwriting guidelines. Chris Dodd is the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, where he along with other Democrats did their level best to keep the lending markets open and free to any and all types of financial instruments, (sic) sub prime lending, as well as get himself sweet deals from Countrywide on his personal residences, go Rob Simmons and Linda McMahon!

Unemployment, ask any economist what is the number one problem with our country today and if they say anything other than unemployment they are lying. Last count 10% of the workforce is unemployed, take into account that the remaining work force is either underemployed or have fallen off the ranks of unemployment and you have a critical world changing problem. Estimates have the actual number of unemployed taking into consideration the above criteria at 18-25%. If you only look at this percentage and how it effects the money supply you have potential for a free fall world depression. The worlds economies are based on consumption, and the confidence that the consumers will consume, at this point in history our world is within a razors edge of crashing, unemployment and money flow in the CONSUMER SECTOR not the governments is the key to the turn around of the global slowdown.

Shadow agendas, the following are based on strong rumors and mounting evidence, Obamas team, is looking to circumvent the Constitution, by structuring a limit on free speech, hold internet bloggers and political pundits accountable for speaking their mind, attempting to steer public opinion by attacking the dissenting opinion, Chicago politics on a national scale, funneling money to ACORN, SEIU and other community organizing groups who’s agenda is to further the political causes of the left, and lastly the capper, employ the Cloward-Piven strategy of overwhelming the system so justification of Marshall law will have cause to be implemented, a key component in the goal of total control.

The President and his team are basically left with two options, first the wrong assumption, that they can continue to spend tax dollars to push an agenda focused on serving the minority, or they can do what is right and focus on serving the people (majority) by fiscal restraint, and a reduction of government as they were hired to do. The choice is theirs, the results are ours, the future of the Democratic party is riding on this bet, now is not the time to double down President Obama, this is not an all or nothing game you are playing.

LIE “We were forced to take those steps (to jump-start the economy) largely without the help of an opposition party which, unfortunately, after having presided over the decision-making that had led to the crisis, decided to hand it over to others to solve, Obama said, starting his address with a history lesson on the roots of the recession.”

Truth: First the TARP program, which was passed in Congress and the Senate by both Democrats and Republicans, your Fed Chairman Geithner on 2/5/09 had and has control over how to use the funds which is estimated to have a remaining balance of 300 billion.

Truth: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, this one is your baby, a 787 Billion baby know as the stimulus plan. You put your best man in charge, Vice President Biden, who since February has managed to fund mostly pork laden non shovel ready projects, and has only funded an estimated 21% to date, also least we forget about the manufactured districts and the large majority of funds going to Democratic member districts.

Truth: Your administration President Obama, has managed to run up (at last count) a deficit of 1.4 TRILLION by employing Keynesian economic theory, or better put, a way to justify the democratic spending spree.

Truth: You cannot spend our country out of debt, that sir is an oxymoron to the highest degree!

Truth: You are attempting to pass a health care bill against the best wishes of the people you serve. You state that no increase in the deficit will be apparent, so looking at that statement you want to cover an additional 30 million people who currently do not have coverage, and you can do that for free?

Truth: Since your parties greed overwhelmed the first stimulus plan you passed, and given 80% of the money has not been spent, you want to offer up a jobs program which will cost another 200 billion. Like the health care plan you say the money will come from TARP or TALF, but give the American public one good reason they should believe you?

Truth: Cap and Trade will further burden the United States economy which will be tasked with carrying an additional tax which will have to be amortized off by middle America further increasing cost to produce which will be passed on to the good people so fortunate to have jobs.

Truth: With the EPA and the United Nations in your back pocket you plan on signing the Copenhagen accord to stem global warming, regardless of the actual truth and facts about the reality of global warming, and the latest scam uncovered which certainly should be validated prior to signing any treaty that will harm the United States.

Truth: Your team of inept financial advisers are trying to implement or make law Financial Regulation Reform, when in fact two of the most culpable individuals for the housing crisis are from your party, Barney Frank And Chris Dodd. Their continued harassment, influence and attacks on the lenders to loosen up mortgage underwriting guidelines in fact exacerbated the housing situation. Also by not implementing suggested refrains on the GSE’s as proposed by Republican legislators both entities were allowed to run amuck.

Mr. President, we are past your blame game, it is childish to continue to look for scapegoats, leaders don’t need to blame others, they fix problems, they elicit help, and build bridges not burn them. Mr. President you have been in office close to one year, and all your team has done is run our nation into the ground, by spending the American public’s money unwisely, while continuing to blame others for problems you and the Democratic congress have created, which by the way has had the majority since 2006.

Sir, either man up and get the job done, or get the hell out of the way, I believe we can do much better without your continued lies and half truths!

Great non partisan video!

In less than one year the bloom has fallen off the rose of Obama’s approval ratings, depending on which poll you choose the Obama approval rating is ranging as high as 53% approval (CBS, go figure) to a low of 46% (Fox News, again go figure). Normally when a politicians approval drops this fast in such a short time, a behavior change is evident, but this is no “normal” administration.

The abnormal to this presidency is business as usual and a continuation and pressing ahead with their Cloward-Piven strategy of manufactured crisis. I am not the first nor do I imagine the last to point out the eerie consistency of Obamas administration and the wreck-less ways of Cloward-Piven.  In short Cloward Piven suggests, “In their 1966 article, “that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when “the rest of society is afraid of them”.

The reasoning behind the strategy calls for, “cadres of aggressive organizers” to use “demonstrations to create a climate of militancy.” Intimidated by threats of black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, leftwing journalists, would float the idea of “a federal program of income redistribution,” in the form of a guaranteed living income for all — working and non-working people alike. Local officials would clutch at this idea like drowning men to a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement it. With every major city erupting into chaos, Washington would have to act.

If you look at Obama’s proposed health care, cap and trade, financial regulation, and topical today the Copenhagen climate meetings, add in the Obama’s litany of Czars, most of which either have community organizing backgrounds, or are far outside of mainstream thinking in regard to the tenets of the Constitution, the logical conclusion is our nation is being run by a far left radically thinking administration, who’s goal is to implement the above mentioned strategy to its fullest no matter what the polls show.

The roots of Cloward-Piven were germinated in another well know radical agency ACORN, which began to spear head in 1982 the “voting rights movement”, “Project Vote”, and “Human Serve” all of which was tasked to register low to moderate voters who in past elections did not turn out to vote. Not a coincidence Obama began his community activism in the ACORN organization, and beat the streets for the ACORN platform, and assisted in the “Motor Vote Law” which was passed into law by Bill Clinton in 1993. It is key to point out that the money behind the expansion of ACORN was none other than the Open Society Institute also called the Shadow Party, which was run and funded by George Soros.

None of this information is new or startling, what is untenable is the fact that Obama’s ties to ACORN and Soros were common knowledge during the election but were dismissed by the major media, now labeled the “lamestream media”, which constituted the third peg or leg in the implementation of the strategy. Due to Obama’s Baptist preacher oratory style, taken from both Rev Wright and the far more honorable Martin Luther King, Soros and the far left had their media angel to begin the process of spreading the wealth and furthering the divide between the haves and the have nots.

The one variable, and possible saving grace is Obama and his handlers overestimated Obama’s star quality, where he still is popular as a person, the Obama administrations policies continue to drop on almost a daily basis, clearly showing that words and actions of this radical team do not match, and people are catching on. Great damage has been done, deficits, jobless rates, and costly legislation continue to hamper the American way of life, but the hope and change that was sold to a wanting populace is now being recognized as the greatest political sham of all time.

The truth will come out as to the motives of Obama and his cronies, and in this authors opinion history will not be kind to our current President, for he is accountable for his actions, and the people are starting to see, the thrill is gone.

FACT: every Yea vote for the proposed health care plan is punishable by law according to the United States Constitution. What you say??   The current House Democratic leadership, notably packed to the hilt with attorneys is playing lawyer games and shielding themselves with their interpretation of both the Commerce Clause and  Necessary and Proper Clause, because without these two “latitudes” deftly written into our founding document they would be committing at the very best betrayal at worst, treason.

“The Commerce Clause represents one of the most fundamental powers delegated to the Congress by the founders. The outer limits of the Interstate Commerce Clause power has been the subject of long, intense political controversy. Interpretation of the sixteen words of the Commerce Clause has helped define the balance of power between the federal government and the states and the balance of power between the two elected branches of the Federal government and the Judiciary. As such, it has a direct impact on the lives of American citizens”

The actual clause as it is written is vague at best, and it’s interpretation is astounding when the actual clause is reviewed, “The Congress shall have power…to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes”.   A specific clause in Article III could be the bills undoing, “In all the other Cases . . ., the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, . . . with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.”

In brief the “Necessary and proper clause” is even more liberal in language, and intent. The law also know as the “elastic clause” is defined as “one of the most powerful in the Constitution. It allows the Government of the United States to “make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this constitution.” This has been used for all types of federal actions including requiring integration in the states.”

Stepping away from the “legalise” our nation is in danger of becoming insolvent, the creation of a National Health Care plan is not legally within the boundaries of the constitution as written, public opinion has clearly spoken in its disapproval, the Democratic party is currently imploding out of worry of unemployment, and the Republicans are unified in effort in defeating this bill. Rather than focus on providing a equatable and cost effective bill for health care reform we have political infighting for the mere reason of saving face, and further growing job security for our elected officials.

Neither party has offered any form of legislation that addresses the issue of skyrocketing health care costs, there is no consensus, there is no concern for anything other than political job security, our elected officials continue to turn a deaf ear to the virulent realities we currently face. There is simply no logical reason to involve the United States government in any further “free enterprise”, their history of handling such affairs is dismal at best, and rife with corruption and rampant cost overruns. This is simply not the time to focus health care and when we do, the debate and the bill should be made public for a lengthy debate. Maybe it is time to quote one of the Democratic party Godheads of past “it’s the economy stupid”, put down the mirrors and listen, our future depends on it.
