SPECIAL ENTRY: Does our government lie to us about our economy?

President Obama, in his 2016 state of the union said; “The United States of America, right now, has the strongest, most durable economy in the world.” (Applause.)

The President said these words when these tent cities in LA Times article were homes for many people.

The president said these words when our 2016 deficit was over $7 billion per day since October 1, 2016 (the nation’s new year); unemployment was at depression levels at almost 23% of our work force. And, there were  108 million of our people on federal welfare and JOBS were limited because of bad federal laws. And if a person gets a job, it is questionable about paying the cost of living because our government has become so expensive that many cannot afford to live.

Per the government: April jobs growth 160,000 with 5% unemployment per BLS;  but per independent economist April had a loss of 316,000 jobs and  unemployment remains about 23%.

The President said very eloquently in a video published in 2013 that the free market does not work, and that it never worked; the problem is that the President chose not to look to the time in our history from 1607 to 1900 when the free market brought us from a humble beginning to a world power in 1900.

Ignoring the 20th and 21st Century wars, the government managed economy was rosy until about the year 2000 when it became obvious that the government programs are not sustainable. We are now in our 59th year without a balanced budget with deficits (total federal debt increases) from the last three presidents of: Clinton $1.6 trillion, Bush $4.3 trillion and Obama projected $9.1 trillion.

To restore our nation we must balance our budget and restore the free market.  And I believe a spiritual revival; fully within the constitutional principle of the freedom of religion clause, would be a key element to restoration of our free market and restoration of our nation.

  • Bible Says: Jeremiah 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
  • Welfare is the price we pay for support of the lies about employment.

All of the trailing – link “content headings” has substantive information a click away.

The overview: we must fix our federal overspending so that more people can afford to live, and we must downward adjust our wages so that we can compete in the world and we must downward adjust our federal wages as the government pay is about double the private sector.

Our over 58 years of deficit spending exposes both excessive taxation and that our government is showing its inability to cut spending.

In the introduction that includes a video on the Fall of Rome; please take that video seriously, lack of ability to balance the budget seems very consistent with a nation that is failing.

The unfair, oppressive and overly-expensive income tax must be replaced with a federal sales tax.

Motto: Manifest Destiny

“Manifest Destiny,” partly expressed that our people, working with Christian values and ethics gained exceptionalism; the concept of exceptionalism is traced to    Alexis de Tocqueville, the first writer to describe the country as “exceptional” in 1831 and 1840.  Tocqueville was impressed by much of what he saw in American life, admiring the stability of its economy and wondering at the popularity of its churches. He also noted the irony of the freedom-loving nation’s mistreatment of Native Americans and its embrace of slavery. Alexis de Tocqueville’s: “Democracy in America,” Published 1835. (source 1 source 2)

There were negatives in the early years; we must not forget them.

Peters is:

Pro Constitution, as written and amended; End Government Crime of Violating the Constitution, as written.

Pro Life,

Pro 2nd Amendment

Pro Self Defense for the nation and

Pro Self Defense for the individual.

For Knowing the Law When on Jury Duty

Pro Vets, if qualified,

  • qualified vets go to any doctor and or hospital at government expense.   (Under Construction)
  • qualified vets have privilege to live on base; if they choose to live on base they would be subject to the base commander, including work assignments and discipline. or
  • provide a federal retirement for vets who saw action; 30 days toward retirement for each day or partial day in combat.

Inflation from the beginning

Capital Gain/Inflation the longer the term the bigger the rip off.

Introduction: our excessive cost of living –  link

We are in a desperate place as a nation and the controlled news media is not doing its job of exposing the problems. And why is the presidents approval rating around 50% when we the people are under the stresses of the growing cost of living and a third of us are on welfare?

Monetary Policy- Link

The “Supreme Court” did a flip flop on FIAT money. In Hepburn v. Griswold 75 U.S. 603 (1869)    it ruled that fiat money was NOT constitutional. They were right!     Knox v. Lee, 79 U.S. 457 (1871),   the supreme overturned Hepburn v. Griswold and FIAT MONEY became the law of the land.

With precious metal removed from our money it is now pure fiat and the government prints money as ordered by the Federal Reserve.

How Much US M2 Money in Existence?

The Unfair Income Tax – Link

About 45% of the people pay no income tax (and they are eligible to vote); that is representation without full taxation. This is “divide and conquer” This is bad for the 55% who go to work and pay income tax; they pay for their share plus more tax for others who choose not to work. Please see link for more information.

This is good news!

There is HOPE: In 2014; if “we the people” had limited our government to the “as written” constitutional spending limits; we would have had a surplus of over $1.9 trillion, or we could have reduced our taxes by over 39%.

Bad News: the Curse of Progressivism – Link

Our spending binge started in 1902 with the Curse of Progressivism; Theodore Roosevelt, very modestly, added 3 lines of spending: Welfare, Health Care and Education. People need all of these, but the constitution does not give these powers to the Congress. These are best left to the private sector with some input by the cities, counties or states. See more by following link.

Excessive Secrets – link

Too Many Secrets with warehouses of documents:  Secrets held too long:   The assassination of John F Kennedy took place in 1963 and files are scheduled to be unsealed in 2017. For more information, see link.

The government’s main role is defense and criminal justice.

The defense effort was to be a joint effort of the “people;” the states and the federal government in the operation and training of the militia and federal military effort. It is interesting that the constitution limits appropriations for the army to two years.

Prior to establishment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, law enforcement was under the jurisdiction of the states, cities and counties. Progressive Theodore Roosevelt worked with the Congress to establish the FBI. We should question the need for the FBI, as they did in the beginning. Having the president protecting individuals from law enforcement is corruption.

The government must keep its “hands off the economy.”

Our history confirms that the “hands off” policy works best. We must repeal “The Federal Reserve System” and allow the economy to operate under natural law; otherwise known as the free market.

I hope that you enjoy reading this web site and further hope to convince the people that we have work to do to fix our failing government.

We Must Keep Our Government and we must FIX IT

To steer closer to our Constitution’s Preamble, (with Liberty and Justice for All) let’s change the call sign of the Presidents Airplane to Air Liberty One. (The call sign is now Air Force One. It tends to portray the idea that we can force our way in the world.) (We should consider renaming this branch of our military to Air Liberty.)

Our Military is to defend our LIBERTY!

Government is our Servant

The government is meant to be the servant of the people and serving the people is a great honor. To steer closer to that idea of servant hood on the part of our government employees, let’s change the government pay scale to be more in line with the amount the average person earns;  as reported by the Census Bureau, currently $53,657.  As our economy improves the average wage is expected to decline (as the dollar increases in value); therefore, the President’s wage should start at 90% of the average ($48,291). To make this work, the government pay should start at 90% of the average ($48,291). The pay for the Supreme Court and the members of congress should be 90% of the president’s pay or $43,462. The intent is that the president’s pay be as high as the average pay and as low as 90% of the average pay of the average private sector employee. To reduce pay for judges we must amend the constitution. The proposed amendment:

Hopefully, this would make the future laws more in tune with the constitution, as written. Government compensation today is about double the private sector.

Jobs for Everyone, We must be World Wide Competitive

To compete in the world our combination of skills and wages must allow us to compete with world wide manufacturing. This will probably require a downward correction in our wages.

Downward correction of wages should also apply to our federal employees are now paid at a rate that is about double the private sector. To substantiate the idea that our federal government employees are the servants of  “we the people” the correction should be such that there would be approximately equal pay for equal work.

To reduce pay for judges we must amend the constitution. The proposed amendment: here.

Concurrent with these corrections, we must significantly reduce the cost of government; thereby we reduce our cost of living.

 

What We Must Do

Balance our federal budget: (under construction)

We have not balanced our budget for 59 years; since 1957.  I can accept that – if we are at war, defending ourselves that we might have a deficit. For the norm, it is reasonable and proper that we balance the budget EVERY YEAR.

Resist War. The congress must declare war; in the act of declaring war, the congress must have all information available to the president when being asked to vote for war. War should be for defense only. Our history is now rife with war; WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam and others, including the Gulf war. Most of these wars had no national defense purpose.

I appreciate that President Roosevelt built up our defenses and that he took on the challenge of the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb.

Repeal Welfare and the Minimum Wage so that all can find jobs. Also, we must reduce the cost of the federal government.  Churches and Charities, financed with voluntary donations; with Cities, Counties and States are trusted to help those in real need of welfare.

Reduce Oppression,  Repeal the Income Tax. Replace with a Federal Sales Tax that is applicable to all documented purchases; including homes and food. Every voter should be feel the result of increases or decreases in tax.

The End

Thanks for checking out these ideas on possibilities to improve our future.
