AIG and YOUR TAX DOLLAR

leave a comment »

After reading the article AIG finally names names it should be of concern to all of us. The top recipients under CDS related collateral received 11billion dollars 4.3 billion of which went to American companies. Top companies under the CDO program received 18.4 billion 8.7 billion which went to American companies. Now consider the top ten companies received in excess of 27.6 billion dollars 9.3 billion of which went to American banks. Read the full article for yourself “AIG finally names names” This is a good example of Washington politics rather than proper Government as set forth by our founding fathers.

Where We Are … Or?

leave a comment »

As the person who writes this blog, new words have been had to put to paper lately. Those of you who have visited here know there are two blogs this one and americanvoice2 . The original intent was to discuss only the foundation of America as related to our Constitution and then the election of our new president came along. There is no ham wished on anyone in any way. The reality is America is in trouble. America was established as a constitutional republic with a strong Judeo Christian heritage.

 

Having a Judeo Christian Heritage is not a bad thing as some would have you to believe. It is a good thing. Go to any other nation in the world and you will find a standard… foundation of each nation Americas is Judeo Christian. The beauty is that all are welcome in America. The problem is many do not follow the rules. Rather than follow they create the rules as needed to meet the desire. The Supreme Court of the United State in 1892 stated the following:

U. S. 471

“subject, is granted and secured; but to revile, with malicious and blasphemous contempt, the religion professed by almost the whole community is an abuse of that right. Nor are we bound by any expressions in the Constitution, as some have strangely supposed, either not to punish at all, or to punish indiscriminately the like attacks upon the religion of Mahomet or of the Grand Lama, and for this plain reason, that the case assumes that we are a Christian people, and the morality of the country is deeply engrafted upon Christianity, and not upon the doctrines or worship of those impostors.”

We as a nation have come a long way in two hundred plus years it is a shame we are destroying ourselves in the process. This is accomplished two main areas. First, as a nation we have walked away from our Judeo Christian heritage. Second, as a nation we fail to follow the simplicity of our foundational documents. Take a minuet and think for yourself it is because of our Judeo Christian heritage and our foundational documents that America is a free nation, it is not the other way around as some would like you to believe.

 

Did you know our Constitution in the Bill of Rights provides for freedom of religion and the free exercise there of . Did you know that the tenth amendment of our constitution limits the power of the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches of Government?  Here is what our new President thinks:

United we stand and divided we fall the choice is yours to make.

Wake Up America

with one comment

Wake up America, Obama it is not the man for the job. That is right; he is not the man for the job. Why is he not the right man for the job you may ask? Use your common sense and the brain that good Lord has given you. Please consider the following:

In the article by Phil Brennan published October 27,2008 at www.newsmax.com. Senator Obama is quoted as saying if the Constitution of the United States of America “didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and [the] Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.” Senator Obama then continues the constitution “Says what the states can’t do to you, says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.”

Hold it, just hold it the Warren court agreed there was a disparity between black people and white people in that we are all American citizens and should have equal treatment. The Warren court did not say our constitution or our government is responsible for each thing that happens if a person’s life. To clarify when government becomes responsible for everything in a person’s life that is socialism. When government treats everybody the same and all are equal you have a socialist society. The Warren court set out to correct a wrong and they did so. Senator Obama’s or for that matter anyone does not have the right change our Constitution because it does not fit their personal plan.

Our Constitution and our form of government with all those checks and balances have plenty of flexibility to meet the demands of the 21st century. The constraints placed by our founding fathers are there because of the knowledge related to the monarchy and socialist system of England in the seventeen hundreds. It is true our constitution says what the states cannot do to you. This is a good thing considering that under socialism “spreading the wealth” the State and Federal government will be telling you exactly what you can and cannot do in the United States of America. It is also true that the Federal and State government is limited as to what they may do on your behalf. Why, the answer is simple it is so that you have the freedom to decide what you choose to do with your faith, family, finances and whatever else effects your personal life.

So you think socialism is better. What is democratic socialism like? Take a look at England one of the best examples. Want to watch TV that will cost you $150.00 just to have the television in your house. Watering your lawn costs you money a mere $25.00 per sprinkler. In addition, of course this is America so everyone has an automobile that will be $300.00 per vehicle per year. Then there was the screen tax, you know the screens on the window in your home, approximately $20.00 per window. Moreover, let us not forget the value added tax of 17% on everything purchased or consumed by you the individual. However, gut feeling says they have not gone down. One last thought on this all of these taxes are in addition to your normal cost example: your home cost $100,000.00 the value added tax would be 17% which is $17,000.00 then you would have a commission to the real estate agent 6% which is $6,000.00. Let us see that $100,000.00 + $17,000.00 + 6000.00 = $123,000.00 and you have not talked with the bank about a loan yet. Now these are just a few of the taxes remembered from living in England from 1989 until 1992. One cannot be sure of the current rates or taxes in 2008.

Do not let the package fool you socialism is expensive dear reader. It is the belief of this writer that Senator Obama goal is for America to become a socialist government where the individual control of the American citizen is severely weakened or removed.

United we stand and divided we fall The choice is yours to make…

Things the Poloticians dont tell you

with one comment

After reading the article by Drew Zahn of World Net Daily it is the opinion of this writer that changing our Constitution is not the right thing to do. Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., earlier this month introduced the bill, H. J. Res. 5 which proposes to amend our Constitution in relation to the term limits set for the President of the United States. H.J. Res. 5 would if passed eliminate presidential term limits opening a door to long term rule by one person or party. Reminisce of a Monarchy or worse.

George Washington set the example for others to follow and Thomas Jefferson agreed in 1805 he suggested an amendment to our Constitution reflecting the limit… one hundred and forty two years later the 22nd amendment was established and in 1951. This is not the first time a repeal of the 22nd amendment has been attempted; in 2003 Rep. Serrano introduced a bill proposing a repeal of the 22nd amendment and in 1987 Rep. Earl Michner proposed a repeal of the 22nd amendment. The questions we should be asking as American Citizens are … What are the motives of these people for the change? Why change what has worked for over two hundred years.

As American Citizens we must remember America is a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy as those in power would like us to believe. The powers of our elected officials are set forth and limited by our Constitution for a reason we need to watchful of those who may desire a change for the gain of power.

United We Stand and Divided We Fall the choice is yours to make….

Article 1

leave a comment »

In reading section one of the first article of the United States Constitution the first thought that comes to mind is, do our elected representatives know their limits. The members of our Congress have limited power as established by our Constitution. Simply put if our Constitution does not state in writing congress shall do this or that … they have no power to do this or that. Have our elected officials exceed the powers granted them; because we as a people and nation have failed to take the responsibility?   

 

In the reading of section two of the first article of the United States Constitution the first thought that come to mind is, it is no surprise that as long as the citizens of this nation continue to do as they do, they will continue to get what they get… or worse. Curious, why is it we the people fail to see the greatness of America. Why as Americans do we allow the failure of those we elect to continue without the consequence? If an elected official does not do as directed by those who elected them, they the elected deserve replacement. As American citizens, we have the privilege and obligation to insure that those elected do the job or put them on notice that in two years they will be finding a new job.

 

As a person who is old enough to be the parent of a twenty-five year old. There is concern that a twenty-five year old is capable of doing the job. Many do not know that America is a Republic and not a democracy. On the other hand they may do a better job than we have. The truth is it is not the age of a person rather their perception and comprehension of what they are working on. Additionally, who is providing the information to them and how is the information being applied?    

 

In 1866 our Constitution was amended for the fourteenth time and the amendment was ratified in 1868. A purpose of the amendment was to clarify section 2 of article 1 of our Constitution. The amendment is clear on Citizenship, Representatives, and public debt. Article fourteen addresses voter fraud with simple and direct instructions. It also provides clear instruction for those who “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof” regarding service in any governmental position. Article fourteen also addresses the validity of public debt in relation to “any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.”

In 1971 section 2 of the fourteenth amendment was amended changing the legal voting age to eighteen. What a shame the younger generation is loosing their understanding of this privilege. There is an old saying “God helps those who help themselves”

Curious… could it be that we have walked away from what the Lord God intended America to be? Rather than follow the provision of the Lord God?

God spoke to Solomon saying:

 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

  2 Chronicles 7:14

God still listens as Americans we have a choice. United we stand and divided we fall the choice is yours to make.
