Every Citizen needs to read this and think about what this journalist has scripted in this message. Read it and then really think about our current political debacle.
Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.
By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations - the House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy - Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred Senators, 435 Congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300+ million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.
The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he, or she votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget - he cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300+ million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist. (Consider, what has the federal government gotten itself into that has actually worked?)
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Army and Marines are in IRAQ (and elsewhere), it's because they want them in IRAQ.
If they do not receive Social Security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to (We) the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people and they alone are responsible -- they and they alone have the power.
They and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it ... is up to you!
To continue, this might be funny if it weren't so true.
(Be sure to read all the way to the end.)
Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.
Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.
Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts anyway!
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.
Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.
Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he's laid.
Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom...'
When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.
…and there's more!!!

THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Consider that not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom could stay home to raise the kids if she chose.
What happened? Can you spell 'politicians?' Wake up people!
(...and one has to 'press 1' for English!?)
MEMO: To All 535 voting members of the Legislature; it is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:
The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 235+ years to get it right and it is broke.
Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 75 years to get it right and it is broke.
Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 72 years to get it right and it is broke.
War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45+ years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 45+ years to get it right and they are broke.
Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 40+ years to get it right and it is broke.
The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 33+ years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
Hey, some of you have been in place since before some of these programs!
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM? IT´S NOT ABOUT THE NEED FOR GOOD HEALTH CARE, IT´S ABOUT TRUSTING THE GOVERNMENT TO RUN IT.
Simple solution that even you may comprehend -- no need for ´health care reform´ - just move us all into the same program that you all have already in place! Simple.
Peter Schweizer - Extortion
November 8, 2013 - Peter Schweizer talked about his book, Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets, in which he argues that, contrary to popular belief, big money interests do not control politicians. He said that it’s the politicians who extort money from corporations and other wealthy groups, noting that members of Congress often introduce legislation for no other reason than to get donations from groups that will be impacted by it.
