545  PEOPLE

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  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 can  not  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.

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 & Marines are in    IRAQ ,  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 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!
