Breaking News

I have never been so ashamed of our Federal and State Government, Our Corporate Executives and Our Media Executives.


Not once have I heard any of them discuss the Balance that is necessary for a Democracy to thrive and prosper in a country that values the People’s right to a life that should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.
What do I mean by balance?
Since the hot issue of the day seems to be the fact that we are broke, let’s start there.
All of us, even though we might not want to pay taxes, do so because we realize that it costs a certain amount of money to provide for defense of our country and to staff and run our communities so that they can provide the services that the majority of us consider essential for the betterment of our country.
This requires that we all pay our fair share, whether it be 5% or 35%.
Now many will say that a corporation should not have to match that amount, yet at the same time they will demand that our corporations have the same rights as an individual person.
To me this means that these discussions on whether to tax or not to tax are irrelevant because if we want to move forward, we all must pay our fair share and I am all for working with anybody to make that fair share the minimum that is possible.
Now that we have determined where we get the money from to run our country, now we need to write it in the blood of our Federal and State Representatives that they cannot spend 1 penny more than what they have available to spend, PERIOD.
This way we will never again find ourselves in the situation that we currently are in.
Now that we have determined where we get our money from and how much we can spend, we need to turn to our corporate executives.
I understand you quest for your business to make a profit and I will support your quest to do so as long as it does not destroy the sovereignty of our country or the People’s right to a life that should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.
You have proven time and time again that you cannot be trusted in respect to that line above which is why we need regulations and yes, I agree that our Federal and State Representatives have gone way too far and we need to reign them in and hold them accountable.
There is only one way to make that happen.
We as a nation need to vote for Federal and State Representatives that will staff our legislative, executive and judicial branches with people that understand that their only duties are:
  • To facilitate our journey into the future by responsibly utilizing the tax money that we all contribute.
  • To mediate the business communities eternal quest for profit at all costs and the People’s right to a life that should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.
If you are not willing to accept these two mandates as your responsibility, you should not be in the position that you hold and you need to step up to the plate and let the people that elected you know that they need to replace you.
These three corners of the Balance that I discuss will almost get you to where we need to be:
  1. Business Community
  2. People
  3. Government
But the possibility of corruption is too great utilizing only these three corners as we need a media that is eternally vigilant to provide this Balance.
This media cannot be effective when it is divided by ideology like it is now, right MSNBC & Fox News?
To provide this balance, the owners of the media need to staff their companies with people from all ideologies, right Rupert Murdoch?
As a minimum, the editors that have the final say on which stories get published need to be either totally impartial and only interested in the Who, What, Where, Why & When or they need to be of all ideologies and have an equal say with the majority ruling, or else we will find ourselves where we are now and by that I mean with the media hacking phones, computers and whatever which makes them just as unethical as the current crop of Supreme Court Justices that we have now, right Ralph Nader?
If you are not willing to work to provide this balance by using your immense resources, people like myself who have no resources will find a way to circumvent your propaganda systems so that the people of America realize what really is happening and we are going to do this because we believe in the People’s right to a life that should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of social class or circumstances of birth and we want to see it implemented on a World Wide Basis so that we can put to death the sweatshops that our corporate leaders that send their work offshore have created in countries that do not value humanity above profit.
