That's a lot of payoffs

TWINCANS
3rd August 2011, 03:29
So now those of you in the states where a rep voted aye (I) write to them tomorrow, write to your local newspaper, talk to your neighbours, to your local reps at the state level, and get to work. Do it legally and do it unflinchingly. This is your country they have sold out. Be the voice of the people. Be loud and clear.

Then after that doesn't work, let us know here at Avalon. Let us know that you have done all you can within the law.

Then those here who know the law best will help you take the next step.

Even those who can see beyond the smoke and mirrors need to take these orderly steps. Have heart. This works.

Then after that doesn't work, let us know here at Avalon. Let us know that you have done all you can within the law.

Then those here who know the law best will help you take the next step.

Even those who can see beyond the smoke and mirrors need to take these orderly steps. Have heart. This works.

Does it work?

So now those of you in the states where a rep voted aye (I) write to them tomorrow, write to your local newspaper, talk to your neighbours, to your local reps at the state level, and get to work. Do it legally and do it unflinchingly. This is your country they have sold out. Be the voice of the people. Be loud and clear.

What I don't like is that all of that was just smoke & mirrors, and what they (he ie Rockefeller Sr) really did was hijack the US government. The last time that happened it ended up in WW2. I don't want any part of WW3. I don't believe that it's over until the fat lady sings. Unfortunately I can't do anything. I'm not American. So ... over to you guys & gals who are US citizens ...

Notice that both Ron and Rand Paul keep their record of fighting for the people and the Constitution intact. You can't say that they are inconsistent. I get so tired of seeing politicians saying one thing and voting another way. Time to vote people out!

The unfortunate thing is that I'm guessing many of the Republican 'No' votes were Teabaggers who didn't think it went far enough...

TwinCans, I'm a little confused. First you say to write your reps, media, etc. and make your discontent loud and clear (within the law) and then you say "after that doesn't work..." and lastly you say "this works." Which is it?

While I still, occasionally, write my Congressmen (President, media, and others), I have found your first statement to be more accurate. It doesn't work. I sometimes get a nice little canned response letter saying how much they appreciate my input, but that's about it. I do believe, however, that getting your thoughts and ideas out before the masses is beneficial--whether they agree or disagree. It at least gets people thinking and, hopefully, motivated to do the same. It is essential that a free exchange of ideas occur before any attempted implementation of any (potential) solution.

Unfortunately, I still find myself getting very frustrated by the apathy of the "sleepers" so I tend to do more writing to vent my frustrations than I do to stimulate an intellectual exchange of ideas. For example, the following is a comment I posted yesterday against an MSNBC.com and FoxNews.com story regarding the passing of the debt ceiling limit bill.

What a shock! They passed raising the debt ceiling limit bill and Obama signed it in the eleventh hour. I’ll bet no one saw that coming. How melodramatic. And after reading several of the comments here, my faith in America is restored.

So while so many are still playing the Democrats versus Republican blame game and discussing the merits of fictitious future cuts and revenues, we can all rest easy that our illustrious “leaders” (tongue firmly in cheek) have risen to the occasion and saved the day by kicking the can down the road once again. And they’ve managed to gut our Constitution even further to boot by essentially eliminating all but 13 Legislators (6 Republican + 6 Democrat Congressmen + President)—who needs those pesky Independents, Libertarians, and Tea Partiers anyway—who will now get to determine what tax and spending bills get passed. Oh that’s right, the soon to be defunct other members of Congress get to vote yay or nay on the bills only. But wait! There’s more! If they don’t vote yay the 12 super members get to run the bill through anyway. Heads I win, tails you lose, seems fair to me. Just think how much more efficient and easily bought, err, um, I mean, manageable Congress will be—not to mention the money we can save—when we eliminate those soon to be defunct legislative jobs.

Yes sir, I have faith that all those hard decisions that couldn’t be made now—and that needed to be made decades ago but weren’t then either—will surely be made by the next Congress, or maybe the one after that. And think of how much more spectacular the crash will be when we’re hundreds of trillions of dollars in debt and every tax dollar goes just to service the interest on the debt—hey, we’re almost half way there now. The sad part is, I probably won’t live long enough to see it, but at least my children and their children and their children’s children—as well as all of yours—will get to see it and enjoy what we’ve done to them. It warms the cockles of my heart to think how proud they will be of us all.

Yep, it’s times like these that makes me proud to be an American. How about you?

Fact is the Bill did not go far enough. The only right votes were the NO votes.
