Say Whatever They Want To Hear, Will America Survive?

I have dashed this off in a huff. I am angry at America. We are destroying ourselves because of people who will lie an cheat to run a government. Then they say that they are honest, they are America’s Dream, they are the truth and Obama has done very well considering the terrible things that the Republicans have done to him. Only the deceit that Harry Reid and Obama have orchestrated can be considered the truth. They are destroying the American economy and the American dream.

Watching the Democratic and Republican Conventions, causes me to stop and take stock in America. The Demos want me to get in the boat with everybody, and the Reps want me to be strong and make my on destiny. Personally, I like the latter because I know where I am going. In the boat with everyone else, who paddles, and who runs the ship and who pays for the fuel to run the ship? Who paddles? In the Viking Ships all rowed, except for the Captain a navigator, and a person who calls commands and cadence. The ship was at the will of the commander, not the rowers. I worry about us all in the same boat.

Our current government is running on a program that spends money we do not have. It does not budget, nor does it explain what will happen when the money runs out. And the money will run out. The government does not make any money doing something that helps society. They can sell public lands and collect tariffs but in general the people make the money. We have cities and counties in the United States that are going bankrupt. We have States that are financially very bad off. And the the Demos get up at a convention and tell the world that every thing is great, we are morally correct, and the nation is in very good condition and is not in any trouble. Sixteen Trillion Dollars debt is a little bit of trouble. Of course a great portion of the debt is held by the public. If we default, we will be hurt the most. Countries that hold portions of the debt will be paid. But we the Americans will be financially destroyed.  We will go through the worst depression with the highest inflation that has ever been, because our government will not budget, nor will it seek to live within our means. We currently have inflation that is higher than the government is saying. My bills have gone up without a similar gain in income. To me that is Inflation. Gas plus food are the basic problems.

We can not spend what we do not have. But our governments both Democratic and Republican have spent way over the amounts of money that we have had. The Demos said last night that the Republicans had spent as much as the Democrats over time. The problem is that the Congress is the spender. The President signs off on budgets, but the Congress does the spending, and since 1932 the Democrats have had control of the Congress far more than the Republicans. Except for about 10 years the Democrats have held either the House of Representatives or the Senate for the last 66 years. During this time they have spent more money on poverty and helping the poor than any other nation in the world. Our poor are rich compared to India and China and other poor countries. It is not normal for a person to die of starvation in the United States. Only during great disasters do people die from heat or other problems, but that is usually due to mismanagement. We have given our poor food stamps, cell phones, air conditioning, clothing, food banks, housing and on and on. Some poor by definition live much better than low middle class.

This is the problem with all being in the boat together. To many do not work. This has now risen with the employment by the Federal Government increased to such a degree, that the cost is becoming a burden to the tax payer. Add the cost of poor, the government workers and the cost of all other government together, it comes to an amount so great we can not pay the cost. The only way out of the situation is to return the country to the point we can pay. We start by reducing the salaries paid to all government. I has got to the point to be totally out of control. Remove pay that allows people to live and work without using their pay checks. Take Congressmen and Senators back to reasonable rates, with removal of all  perks. Go through all departments and agencies removing the cost that are not needed. Delete, close remove some departments and agencies.

Completely rework the Tax code with a fixed rate or with as sales tax rate, and do away with the IRS. All will pay a portion as taxes, because when you pay nothing, you soon expect others to pay your way.

Sell the United States Postal Service. It is costing to much and continually looses money.

Next we can look at the programs that have been put in place for the old and the poor. In many cases this has grown over time to the extent that we can no longer afford it. Do not remove, but slowly make it more efficient and less wasteful.  Do this with all programs. We can not give grants if we do not have money. We can not fund other countries if we do not have money. We can not keep places like Camp David and any other special places that are expenses for a time of need. End social engineering in the Military. These programs cost money and they are not in line with the Military Mission. Cut all oversea purchases and contracts for procurement. Our people need this money. We can not afford these cost. The list of savings will get long.

Needless to say you are now receiving my message. Everyone in the  boat has to share the cost of this reduction. The rich or the middle class can not pay for the rest while growing the debt. When my credit cards max out I can no longer use them and I am required to pay expensive fees. When I have no money in the bank, I can not write checks. When I have no money I can not keep buying. Neither can my country. The Government is killing America.

Now is a time in History, when people have the right and honor to chose their direction. One problem is that so many people have been suckled at the nipples of government, that they do not want to stop receiving the money and food that they have been given without working. Do we let only those who are paying make the decision for the direction of our government? Do we allow both. One a boat with all the people in it, with no ability to pay for itself? Is the other a group of individuals who will create their own worlds and live off of their own efforts. This was the original way of our government.

I would say yes! But I would not cast off my brothers in the boat without a motor. There has to be some way the people in the boat together can continue to live and have the American dream. They also have to be able to live without having envy of those who work for themselves. I see two possibilities. One with City States and Urban States.  It would allow the two systems to work side by side, and the people who work for themselves would pay to the government as now, but the Government would have to live within its means.

A second choice is of two separate countries. One made up of City States and the other made up of Urban States. A prime law would be there could be no wars over arguments. All disputes would be resolved in a court between the two using a system of laws fair to such a system. Trade and commerce would occur between the two. Because of ken ships and families either could go across the boundaries of the other, but in no case would people of one system be able to try to change the other system.

Can we get there? More than likely, the answer to that is no. It will require a Civil War which will create as much harm as the last Civil War created. God help us all! The direction and the answer are difficult. As I watched President Clinton defending President Obama’s government, I began to recognize how far we are apart, and the impossible situation that we can never return to a stable  single government that would assist both systems. I know that many Democrats are good people, but I also know that the system  is failing as we talk. How can one group of people pay for another? We are not doing it now. The growth of the National Debt is more than we can support.

Americans rise up and do the correct things. Budget. Live withing our means in all cases. Take care of those who can not take care of themselves. Take care of the sick at all levels. Do away with the VA but give persons who served in war the care they need in our current systems. Maintain a Military that is capable of allowing our government to lead and not grovel trying to seek world acceptance through humble actions. We have been leaders. I receive a Military Retirement and Social Security both of which I funded. I was in the Military for 32 years and spent two years in Vietnam. I worked for 14 years in the civil sector working in  construction and engineering. Eighteen months of this was in China building quarters modules for offshore platforms. I paid into the Social Security form 1964 to the present. I paid my due. But I would give up some to save America. I am sure that most Military who served, would give up something to save America. Who else will!

Will the person who does not work do something to help the government pay its bills? Will the person on food stamps who is wasting, buy spending all of their stamps, give some of their food stamps back to the government? Will the person who is poor give up their IPOD and plan, except a plain phone and give some of of this money back to the bill payer, who is paying extra so that the poor can have an IPOD. This is not the America that our Four Fathers dreamed of. They did not want a welfare state. They wanted freedom from government.

It is time to put things straight. We must right America. IN GOD We TRUST!
