Politcally Incorrect Musings

This was an email that was sent to me. Think about this when you vote. Think hard about who you are voting for and WHAT you are voting for.





  Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then 
campaign against them. 

  Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are 
against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the 
politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high 

  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 - 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 

  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 G.W. BUSH 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? She is the leader of the majority party. 
She and fellow Democrats, not the president, can approve any budget they 
want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto. 


  It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 
545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts - of incompetence and 

  I can't think of a single domestic problem, from an unfair tax code to 
defense overruns, that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. 

 When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise 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 Marines 
are in IRAQ, it's because they want them in IRAQ. 

  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 exist 
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.
