The NEW Bi-Partisan Plan

kids-argue-tongues

 

The new bi-partisan plan is very simple…. “to oppose each other”.  I believe that the present two party system has reached a point of no return…in doing what is best for the American people.

The parties are so divided that the only focal point of a politician concerning the American people is “what can I say to them (the American people) to get elected or keep my job”.   We are pandered to or given a “spin” every time a politician opens his or her mouth.  I can understand ideological differences of opposing parties…but I have enough common sense to realize if they don’t compromise for the good of the American people…then they will destroy us.  As for career politicians… if they were that good at what they do… “Why in the Hell are we in such a decline today?” The answer is not complicated…they have been taking care of their own self preservation… instead of ours. You have heard it before “throw the bums out”.  It time for a new breed of elected officials to stands up for the American principals that made this County great.

The politicians are not going to change the rules that restrict “them” or limit their capabilities.  It is up to the conscious and informed to insist that our elected officials do the right thing for the American people. I used the words “conscious and informed”….not necessarily the masses.  If you don’t have a clue that there are 3 branches of governments or know who the Vice President is…then please use your vote on one of the next American Idol contestants.

America was once considered a melting pot and a land of acceptance and opportunity.  Today it is an influx of people that enter this Country as separatist and insist that this Country change to accommodate them.  The new America of “political correctness” and “division” will become our self destruction.   We as “united” Americans need to wake up…open our eyes wide and look at the obvious…it’s before us 24/7.

In the words of Larry Winget… “Grow A Pair”.  Oops…I so sorry that probably wasn’t politically correct.

Business as Usual

migrating-politicians

Like many of you… I receive emails quite often that have been forwarded to friends that have elected to pass them on.  Some of the views I agree with…some are slanted to promote one party’s agenda….while others I have simply found to be untruths.

Regardless of what political party you may identify with (if any) or even if you have absolutely no interest in politics or politicians… I strongly suggest you view this short video in regard to the contents that will affect you and your family regardless of your views or political affiliation.

The primary reason that this activity exist (as referenced in the video) is because we allow it.  Now I understand that each one of us have our own responsibilities or interest that occupy our daily routines, and the older you become…those days appear to become shorter.  I’m not asking you to alter your day… but to reflect for a moment and ask yourself is there anything that I can do to help eliminate “the idiotic business as usual” nonsense in Washington? Voting…emailing your elected officials…passing on emails that reflect your views to friends or etc. These are the minimum things that you should exercise.  Its’ the etc…I am asking you to give thought to.

Growing up in a small community I received news that was spoon feed me via newspaper or a 30 minute television time slot each day.  If there was a political agenda attached to it…I wasn’t aware of it… smart enough to know it…or I just wasn’t paying attention because of a lack of interest.  The truth is…it was probably a combination of all of these.

Today there is no excuse…with the internet there is almost nothing that can’t be researched in a matter of minutes… that can and will have an affect on your way of life…“regardless if you choose not to get involved”…you will be. Knowledge, words and actions are the most powerful tools to help create change…but only if you share them.

Watch this video for its content (regardless of its self interest or political affiliation)… “Business as Usual” needs to change.  The masses are controlled by a few though “sound bits, lies, self preservation and concealment of the truth”.  The truth is there…if you look for it.

Connect The Dots…

Are you curious about the decisions that are being made by our politicians and the events that are happening in today’s world?  Are you concerned about what happens outside the 5 mile radius of the bubble you live in?  If not… then I would suggest that you continue to live your contained simplistic life and check to see who was recently drafted on your favorite “ball team” or who will be appearing on “Dancing with the Stars” this season…and read no further.

For those who are curious about the future of our Country…and the affect that it may have on your way of life… maybe it’s time to look at history.  History is one of the best tools to indicate or provide direction of our Country’s future.

I’m not asking you to listen to the politicians of today from either major party…who are continuously fighting for control of what they perceive to be their domain…where pandering, lying, and self-preservation has become (if not always) more importance than the future of our Country.

When I was a young man I received my national news via television or the local newspaper.  The news cast was 30 minutes anchored by either Huntley and Brinkley or Walter Cronkite.  I listen to what they reported…had no reason to doubt it…and then went about my simplistic life until they fed me what they thought I should know the next day.

It was a time when you were told by your parents if you work hard and apply yourself you could be successful in life (the meaning of the word successful is a topic for another day).  That advice has prevailed and produced different levels of comfort zones for many people through the years.  It was also a time when changes were put in place to correct the injustices and separation of American citizens that had prevailed for so long…a time to bring into play the equality that was provided in the words of our constitution…opportunity for all of its citizens. Opportunity is the keyword…do not get the words “opportunity” and “fairness” confused.  Life is not fair…get over it.

Let’s focus on the words “If you work hard and apply yourself you could achieve success in life”. There are no guarantees…because life isn’t always fair…but this has been the prevailing concept of my generation and the generation before me…this has been the history that has created the greatness of our County.

Look at the direction of the past and connect it to the direction of the future…is it continuing on the same path…can you “connect the dots”?  I don’t think so.

Below are sources that I would encourage you to view and digest in order to help provide you with your own answer to this question…can you connect the dots?

Public Servants…..or…. Expensive Welfare Recipients?

I received this in 2008…and it hasn’t gotten better…

SOCIAL SECURITY: 

Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during election years.
Our Senators and Congress women do not pay into Social Security and of course, they do not collect from it.  You see, Social Security benefits were not suitable for
persons of their rare elevation in society.  They felt they should have a special
plan for themselves So, many years ago they voted in their own benefit plan.
In more recent years, no congress person has felt the need to change it. After all, it is a great plan.

For all practical purposes their plan works like this:

When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until they die.  Except it may increase from time to time for cost of living adjustments.Their cost for this excellent plan is $0.00.  NADA!!! ZILCH!!!
This little perk they voted for themselves is free to them. You
and I pick up the tab for this plan. The funds for this fine retirement plan
come directly from the General Funds;   “OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK”!
From our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay (or have paid) into, every payday until we retire (which amount is matched by your employer).

Public Servants…..or…. Expensive Welfare Recipients?

LET US SHOW OUR LEADERS IN WASHINGTON “PEOPLE POWER” AND
THE POWER OF THE INTERNET. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS.
IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU ARE REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT!

INSIST THAT THEY PASS A BILL TO PLACE ALL POLITICIANS ON SOCIAL SECURITY

Socialism At It’s Best…

 Apparently NO ONE IS LISTENING…

Adrian Rogers was given credit for having said the words below  in 1931…

  “You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

 What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

 The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.  

 When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them,

 and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for,

 that, my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.    You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. “*
