545 vs 300,000,000

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

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress

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

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!
