US Debt Clock!

The other day I wrote about the total Federal Debt. I listed the total as over $50 Trillion dollars. I was only partially correct. It is over $100 TRILLION DOLLARS!!!! The debt of $50 trillion is only the debt that is currently held and “realized” in accounting terms. The $100 Trillion amount reflects the unfunded liabilities that are held in the Social Security, Medicare and Prescription Drug benefit programs that are not “realized” but must be paid in the future.

Today, David Walker was on Glenn Beck and showed this web page while discussing his newest book which provides a plan to bring our country back to fiscal responsibility.

He also showed a webpage that his new organization has developed… The US Debt Clock!

You MUST checkout this webpage. Bookmark it. Keep it in your thoughts. Pay attention!

When you hear your “representatives” talk about the small bill of healthcare, or anything else, go back to this clock and think about what that means for you, your children, your grandchildren, and the next, and the next….

We must stop the madness and get back to fiscal responsibility in our government and in our personal lives.

Scott Brown Wins!!!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!!!

A couple of days ago, I implored readers to pray, contribute, contact friends and family in Massachusetts, or whatever else they could think of to support Scott Brown for Senate.

The primary point was that we require a change. A change from where our country is going with specific regard to the healthcare proposals but also with regard to the conceived aristocracy in Massachusetts of a “Kennedy Seat”.

Scott Brown is projected to win by CNN and Foxnews (and others). I gave some money. I prayed. Why?

I do not know all of the opinions of Scott Brown, but I knew that there is something terribly wrong when people establish an aristocracy by naming a seat. I also know that one party having the ability to hide a debate that will cause a bill on you and I of nearly $1 trillion is WRONG.

Now, it will be interesting to see how fast he is seated. When Ted Kennedy was elected in a special election due to John F. Kennedy’s giving up the seat for the Presidency, he was sworn in the next day. Will Massachusetts and the Democrats allow the same expediency?

Republican or Democrat???

Over the past weekend, I had the opportunity to drive about 7 hours each way to see my kids. The driving is long and tiring but, in the end, getting to see my kids is well worth it. Also, the opportunity to think for fourteen hours was very good.

One thing I decided was that I am no longer a Republican. I have been a Republican for my entire adult life. Why? Because the Republicans believed in more things that I believed in than did the Democrats. However. That is no longer the case.

Both parties are lost. Lost to progressive thought. Lost to gerrymandered districts. Lost? Why do I say lost?

Because they are lost to you, the Citizens of the United States. They do not represent you, the citizens, any longer. They do not believe in the Constitution. They do not follow the Constitution. Few of them could even recite their oath to you or understand what that oath means.

No. I am an Independent. I am going to develop a specific term that I am labeling – Conservative Constructionist. What is that you say? Many of you have heard of “Strict Constructionist” and “Loose Constructionist”. I think those terms are not understood and too tight in definition. I am a Conservative Constructionist who believes that the Constitution might require change sometimes. However, when preparing law, when executing law, when judging violations of the law, I believe that our representatives should be able to point at a portion (i.e. clause(s)) of the Constitution that specifically provides the explanation to his/her respective work. If he/she cannot do that, then an amendment is needed. That is change. But, it is codified change that can be pointed to later for the actions of our government.

If the citizens of the United States truly believe that the Federal Government should provide healthcare to all citizens, then the Constitution should say the same. The Constitution provides clear and unambiguous guidance on how to do this. It provides the PEOPLE the opportunity to affect change in government. The people have to agree and approve the change.

So. I am establishing a new term. Conservative Constructionist. Conservative that believes law should be truly based upon the Constitution with specific reference to a clause or clauses. When that is not possible, then the Constitution requires amendment. It may seem as though this is impossible. But, if that is the case, it is only in that we have moved so far away from the Constitution that it SEEMS impossible. The Commerce Clause is used for almost every possible reason now. Go read it. Do you see anything in that clause that tells you that the Federal Government should ensure healthcare for ALL?

David Walker New Book

The other day I wrote about the former Comptroller General of the United States, David Walker.

For those who do not know, the Comptroller General is a political appointee position that is selected by the President and Approved by the Senate. However, unlike most other positions, the position is a 15 year position and one cannot be reselected for the position. This is supposed to provide the holder of the position the latitude of not “belonging” to a political party.

David Walker left the position well before his tenure was complete because he felt that he could not tell the people, no not just people, that sounds so bland and unimportant. He left the position to tell YOU, the Citizens of the United States of America, how your government is fiscally performing. He was raising red flag after red flag about the money the government was spending and how much debt the government has both “on balance sheet” and “off balance sheet”.


Read his book! Read it now!

You might look at the price and think that you have better things to spend $18. You are wrong. Sorry. That sounds harsh, but it is true.

One example of something you need to know. Gerrymandering. Do you have any idea how the states determine the Congressional Districts? Gerrymandering. What is it? GET THE BOOK!!!! It is a critical component to how 97% of politicians are reelected election after election! Incumbents win because they design their districts, so it is almost impossible to lose.

I wish I had more time in the day! There are so many things to talk about. You need to learn quickly. You need to pay attention. You need to pass this blog along, and I promise to start helping people understand.

We need to team-up and get on the ball. We are losing our country day-by-day, vote-by-vote, elected official by elected official. Stop abdicating your responsibilities as a citizen of this country, this beacon of light. Do not accept the Abdication Nation any longer. Step-up and make a difference. Choose today to make it so!
