Bankrupting America: Are Democrats and RINOs planning for a liquidation sale.

Scary title. Well, Yes it is, because it could be true. America has come to the brink of being bankrupt thanks to the tax and spend Democrats and RINOs (liberal Republicans) who have taxed Americans and American business to death and squandered the proceeds.  And what happens afterward if no one steps in to help us out is called a liquidation sale. Relating the business way of dealing with bankruptcy to an entire country is unpredictable because no one can actually buy a entire country but they can buy up huge chunks of it. The National Parks, the Interstate Highway system, the United States Forest Service, the  United States Bureau of Reclamation, Tennessee Valley Authority, all of the land owned by the Federal government. Take a look at this map showing the extent of land owned and controlled by the Federal government:

Imagine it being sold to the highest bidder. Imagine the bankruptcy being a planned, intentional act. And as long as Barack Hussein Obama is in the White House and the Democrats control half the Congress, as long as liberal RINOs vote with them, it doesn't look like help is coming. And who may profit from such a liquidation sale? Billionaires like George Soros who is a major supporter of liberal Democrats and RINOs.
The best place to begin looking at the problem is through these two videos entitled The Path to Prosperity produced by the current House Budget Committee presented by Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee. For more information on the plan to avert the US's nearing debt crisis and chart a path of growth and prosperity, /

How did America get this way? Step back 10 years and read the following column written by Charlie Reese of the Orlando Sentinel as he explains how the problem was created. I got this in an email today but this has been around the Internet for several years. That doesn't change one bit of the truth and makes it even more important to keep spreading the word because of the crucial, life or death elections coming up in 2012. It is obvious no one paid any attention to this wisdom until the TEA Party exploded on the national scene last year and the news media couldn't bury the story. Thanks to people like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann we took back control of the House but we fell short of control of the Senate. Next year we can do better and we can put that Marxist/Socialist POS community organizer currently in the White House out of business.
545 vs 300,000,000 People 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 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 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 millions of 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. The Speaker of the House (the leader of the majority party) and his/her 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 cannot 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 and Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ...

They receive social security and are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insolvable 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.

These 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!


Charlie Reese was a columnist for the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper from 1971-2001.

If being scared to death with stark reality is not your cup of tea (no pun intended at the TEA Party) here is another way to look at the problem in a humorous fashion. By the way, the TEA Party candidates still have the best solutions to the problem, its just that the liberal left wing controlled news media won't write about it. They are too intent on substituting ridicule and slander for fairness and truth. So here is a little something to help you smile while you're trying to balance your checkbook, pay you bills and feed and cloth your family.
Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the table, At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor, Tax his mule, Teach him taxes Are the rule.

Tax his work, Tax his pay, He works for peanuts anyway!

Tax his cow, Tax his goat, Tax his pants, Tax his coat.

Tax his ties, Tax his shirt, Tax his work, Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink, Tax him if he Tries to think.

Tax his cigars, Tax his beers, If he cries Tax his tears.

Tax his car, Tax his gas, Find other ways To tax his ass.

Tax all he has Then let him know That you won't be done Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers; Then tax him some more, Tax him till He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin, Tax his grave, Tax the sod in Which he's laid...

Put these words Upon his tomb, 'Taxes drove me to my doom...'

When he's gone, Do not relax, Its time to apply The inheritance tax.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most  prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What happened?

  1. There were liquor taxes a hundred years ago, they were a major moneymaker for government. Some of those others existed at that time as well. The US political parties 100 years ago were very different from how they are today - both parties contained conservatives, moderates, and liberals. What party you were was determined more by your region than your ideology.
