or, John McCain, as runner up in the election. So, you, at best, get a Republican President.Was Bush that much better than the bastard president? Or, are both parties in bed to bring thiscountry to its knees. Remember, the first stimulus package was under Bush
The Congress has not ventured into qualifying Presidential aspirants, and the Courtrefuses to look at the matter. There is a qualification in the Constitution, but no direction as towho is to act as the qualifier. Congress has not, as was intended by the Founding Fathers,sought to fill the gap of omission in the Constitution. Congress has let us down.
Audit the Federal Reserve
- Suppose there is an audit of the Federal Reserve. What auditstandard would apply to an entity as unique as the Federal Reserve? So, first, a standardwould have to be developed to assure that the audit provided the desired results. I wouldsuggest that this would first be given to the Treasury Department to propose the standard. Ican see Treasury taking a year or two to develop their proposal for a standard. Then, it wouldgo to the Congress who would assign it to committee, and it would be in Congressionalcommittees for at least two years. Once the standard was determined, the audit would beconducted. Most assuredly, at least some of the auditors would be people well versed in the practices and procedures of the Federal Reserve (inside men). Even if the audit, when (if ever) completed showed massive fraud, the result would be to enact laws to prohibit that sortof fraud in the future, and, at best, begin the process of looking for an alternative to theFederal Reserve Act.
Congress was outside of its authority when it enacted the Federal Reserve Act in1913. The effect of the subsequent years of entrenchment; loss of GOLD and silver as ameans of paying debt; and, the enormous debt that has been created and mostly owed to theFederal Reserve makes a solution under the present system almost impossible. The Congressfailed to adhere to the Constitution.
End the Federal Reserve
- Even if ended abruptly, the effect on the economy, especiallywith regard to the National debt, would be devastating. What alternative to both dealing withcirculating currency and payment of debt would be implemented to avoid such disaster?
The Congress abrogated their responsibility under the Constitution and allowed anAdministrative Agency (Treasury Department) and a private (foreign) group of investors tocontrol our economy.
- Objections to national health care are late, and will do nothing to reduce costs.As has resulted from mandatory (in some cases) healthcare insurance, the costs haveescalated because the marketplace was undermined. Once the captive audience (mandatoryinsurance) was implemented, costs could only go up. If healthcare were left in the freemarket, there would still be hospitals, doctors, and producers of prescription drugs. Theywould, however, have to provide their services at prices that were reasonable andmanageable. Otherwise, they would have no customers. Absent customers, they would lower their prices, or look for new work. Supply and Demand is the best manager of costs. Supplyand Demand allows us, the ''consumers”, to determine what appropriate and acceptable costsare. Once removed from our hands, the value of the service was also removed.
Congress usurped authority that was not granted by the Constitution, by adoptingsocialism as a means of buying votes. There is no Constitutional authority to require
