Beware the Bush bailout

Thursday, 25 September 2008, at 0327 hours
Central Time -- Nashville, Tennessee, USA

A couple of days ago, my good friend -- truck-driving blogger, and fellow talk-radio junkie, "Transporter" -- said it very well, "Welcome to the USSA."  And, last night, President Bush confirmed it.  Although the president certainly didn't use these words, the fact remains that -- if his plan is enacted -- the United States will essentially become a Socialist country.

Perhaps you're thinking, "That's impossible, this is America!"  Wake up and take a look around.  This is not the America that was designed by the Founders of the Constitution.  This has become, by the steady and determined collusion of the Big Two political parties, a land of government entitlements.  Or, as we used to say in the Air Force, "The Land of the Big BX".

Perhaps you're thinking, "That's impossible, I voted Republican!"  Wake up and take a look around.  The Republican Party, especially at its highest levels, does not even follow its own platform.  Consider, as one example, the fact that former GOP chairman Halley Barbour later became a paid spokesman for Planned Parenthood, even though he headed the "pro-life" Republican Party.  Consider, as another example, the waffling ill-logic of so-called "conservative" (but, in reality) globalist, CFR member Fred Thompson.  If you are a Constitutional conservative, but still a member of the Republican Party, then you really need to wake up and smell the "Kool-Aid" before it's too late!

Most taxpayers will never get an opportunity to learn anything but the highlights of the bailout plan.  Why?  Because they are too busy working -- and paying taxes -- to read the details.  Last night's televised speech by President Bush contained "one little detail" that is a Poison Pill for anyone thinking about trying to work themselves up and out of the economic lobster tank.

That detail was Federal Reserve oversight.  When I heard him speak the words, my jaw dropped.  My wife looked at me, and asked, "What's wrong?"  I was beyond words to explain it, and knew that I would need to sit down and type this column.  The Bush bailout plan, as bad as it is, contains a hidden element that is even worse.  You see, there is nothing to directly connect a bailout -- or, as President Bush called it, a "rescue" -- to any oversight by the Federal Reserve.  Consider the president's analogy of a "rescue".  After a firefighter rescues a person from a burning house, does he later go live with the family for awhile to make sure that they are living safely?  If the president gets this detail enacted into law, then expect the entire company of firemen to take up residence ... and, dictate to you what will be on the menu at each meal.

Here are President Bush's own words.  Keep in mind that, only a few weeks ago, he forcefully chided the American sheeple by stating, "We are not in a recession."  But, last night, with as much drama this time as swagger the last time, he opined, "We're in the midst of a serious financial crisis..."  The problem is that the crisis has been brewing for ten years!  (Caused by President Clinton's mandates to provide home loans to illegal aliens.  Some of us warned Americans when he was elected that Clinton's "legacy" would be a Socialist America.  Few listened then.)  How, then, did Bush go from "not a recession" to a "serious financial crisis" in about a month?  (In the seventh paragraph of his speech, President Bush plainly says that the crisis has been brewing for "more than a decade".  Didn't that decade include last month?!)  Back in the days of the Soviet Union, the Russian people had a saying when the newspaper arrived:  "New lies for old."

In the 25th paragraph of President Bush's speech (long after most dumbed-down sheeple have changed the TV channel to feed their sports addiction), we discover that, "For example, the Federal Reserve would be authorized to take a closer look at the operations of companies across the financial spectrum and ensure that their practices do not threaten overall financial stability."  Oh, really?!  What, exactly, does "take a closer look" really mean?  And, who decides what is a threat to overall financial stability?  Puh-lease don't tell me that the same people who put us into this crisis, and then said there was no crisis, will be the ones to decide whether someone else is a threat to financial stability!

If you own a small business, then perhaps your company's very existence could someday be considered to "threaten overall financial stability" -- even if you voted Republican the last time.  (And, if you don't believe me, then consider all of the "strawberries" that Stalin planted in his "fields".  If you don't know what that means, then read a history book!  Otherwise, you could end up as a "useful idiot" for tyranny in Amerika!)  If you are a labor organizer, then perhaps your activites could someday be considered to "threaten overall financial stability".  If you are a housewife, and don't use a government-approved recipe, then perhaps you could someday be considered to "threaten overall financial stability".  (Oh, so you don't believe me?  Well, who gets to write the definition?  Oh, yeah -- the people that put the hole in the boat to begin with!)

As readers can see, this column equally bashes Republicans and Democrats, because both are equally responsible for the mess into which they have dragged the rest of us.  What, then, is the solution?  I tried to tell people, months ago, that the solution could be found in the collective wisdom of my 'dream team' for the White House.  But, as long as the American sheeple are stuck in the rut of only voting for "the Ds and the Rs", then we will continue to get more of the mess that they have dumped upon us.

Only when the politicians fear two things -- their own unemployment, or an armed revolt -- will they become "bound by the chains of the Constitution", as the Founders had intended.  That is why the Founders wisely put only a two-year term on the House of Representatives.  And, in case the "revolution at the ballot box" somehow failed to clean the House completely, they also wisely put the right to keep and bear arms into the Bill of Rights as an insurance policy against lying politicians and fraudulent elections.  (So... how did we get into this mess?)

Of course, there is one other way that Americans can ensure that our elected officials will obey the Constitution.  It's so simple that many people refuse to see it.  We need to elect people that have already promised to obey the Constitution; and, who have demonstrated by their actions that they will keep that promise.  Where do we find such people?  How about in a political party where one must take such a pledge in order to even become a member?  If the process of filtering begins -- quite logically -- at the beginning, then we can have a reasonable expectation that the "final product" candidates of that political party are actually serious about the Constitution.  (As compared to, for example, our current president, who thinks that the Constitution is merely, "... a God-d---ed piece of paper!")  Americans need to invest a little time, effort, and -- yes -- money into a new political party that understands it is better to avoid shooting holes in the boat than it is to develop a bailout plan.

Fortunately for most of America, a few of us have already been digging the foundation.  And, recently, we began putting up the framework.  So, that new political party is already taking shape.  It is called America's Independent Party.  You should click the link and join it right now.

And, you should beware of Bush's bailout plan.
