What do President Barack Obama, U.S. Senators Harry Reid, John McCain, Charles Schumer, Arlen Specter, Mark Udall, Carl Levin, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein and the rest of the Senate enjoy in common?
They fail to serve the U.S. Constitution, rule of law and the citizens of America.
What do U.S. House members Nancy Pelosi, John Salazar, Diana DeGette and the rest of the House of Representatives share in common?
They fail to serve the U.S. Constitution, rule of law and citizens of America.
“Give me some examples!” you shout.
Since 1986, the entire Congress and all presidents failed to enforce the law and secure our borders as well as engage internal enforcement of our immigration laws. Results: over 20 million illegal aliens running around in our country creating anchor babies, chaos in our schools, massive incarceration cost, bankrupting our medical systems and draining $346 billion out of taxes annually across 15 federal agencies to supplement their presence in our country. (Source: Edwin Rubenstein report at www.thesocialcontract.com “Cost of illegal immigrants”)
When Arizona passed laws to save itself from this invasion, as they suffer 460,000 illegal aliens within their state that cause untold cost and chaos, Obama engaged another tax-paid public servant, Eric Holder, to stomp that law, SB 1070, while Obama continues to NOT engage federal immigration laws to help Arizona—even as Governor Janet Brewer begged him to come down to Arizona to see the wreckage himself! Arizona suffers 57,000 cars stolen annually and the dubious distinction as the carjacking capitol of the world. It grows as the kidnapping capitol of the world. Its schools cannot educate its own children in the English language. Its hospitals drown in anchor babies and unwed illegal alien mothers. Its prisons overflow with violent criminals from Mexico.
For twenty years, our Congress outsourced, insourced and offshored millions of jobs to foreign countries. Results: we suffer 15 million unemployed and another five million underemployed. We lost our manufacturing base to China. We lost our textiles, cars and steel production. We lost them because Congress shipped those jobs to foreign lands. Thus, we suffer 15 million unemployed and the city of Detroit, Michigan fell from 1.85 million residents that worked at the auto plants to 900,000 today and a city that looks like someone dropped a bomb on it.
Instead of fair trade, the Congress authorized free trade that now forces us into an annual $700 billion trade deficit with China and they own $1.1 trillion of our Treasure Bills. Why? China, with an average wage of .33 cents per hour for its 1.3 billion people undercuts Americans as to products, wages, goods and services. We taxpayers must borrow $2 billion daily from countries around the world to float our ‘false’ economy. The people in Congress did it knowingly to us American citizens.
For over 20 years, illegal alien mothers, to the tune of 400,000 annually, cross our borders illegally and birth their babies. At Parkland Hospital in Dallas, ‘anchor babies’ account for 9 out of 10 babies being born and U.S. taxpayers pay for those births along with medical care and education for the next 18 years along with food stamps, free school breaks and lunches and medical care along with assisted housing. Why? Because such bills as HR 1968 to stop birthright citizenship to illegal aliens remain buried in the U.S. House of Representatives for the past 10 years with no action taken. Cost to U.S. taxpayers run into the countless billions.
War on Drugs: after $1 trillion spent since 1971, hasn’t stopped one pot smoker, cocaine user or other drug users a moment from pursuing their pleasures. It has, however, caused 38 million Americans jail time. While it fails on all levels, the DEA exists to exist and taxpayers pay the bills for failure for the past 39 years. As former police officer Howard Wooldridge, www.cop.org, said, “Modern Prohibition/The War on Drugs is the most destructive, dysfunctional & immoral domestic policy since slavery & Jim Crow.”
Who placed this nation into a $12 trillion debt? Our U.S. Congress! We suffer SO much debt that collapse cannot be avoided at some point.
How can two backward, goat herding nations like Iraq and Afghanistan engage the U.S. military for nine years and ‘they’ win and we fail to win? Afghanistan doesn’t own a single military jet or a single helicopter, yet a bunch of ‘insurgents’ can stave off 100,000 finely tuned American soldiers into stalemate. Who allows this farce to continue? The U.S. Congress! They’re duping us and we’re duping ourselves. Yet, the costs run over $800 billion as we waste $12 billion a month on such a fruitless endeavor. All of it caused by President George W. Bush with his whimsical “Weapons of Mass Destruction” farce! And, now Obama continues the deadly charade.
We could cover a dozen more aspects of our current national predicament, but not enough space.
How do we stop this political and financial insanity? We must create term limits to eject ‘career politicians’ that prove themselves incompetent and stop ‘incompetent’ voters that continue voting them into office. Many of those 70, 80 and the late Senator Robert Byrd at 92—hang on to power beyond their years and abilities. We need fresh faces, fresh minds and new ideas for the 21st century. Otherwise, our dilemma shall continue.
