Can the World trust American Elections?

America has for many years been at the heart of spreading democracy, it has been the icing on the cake for many nations and it has worked for many more nations.

However there are problems in this system that has been more public than ever before, large numbers of voters, that may or may not be entitled to vote in this nation.

   As early as the last four years, there were arrests made when certain political officials even offered crack in exchange for votes.

They deserved what they got, but there is no question that there is a problem and so far our elected congressional officials are ignoring this problem.

It is a sad thing when those people who have been elected to conduct the business of the people instead conduct business on their own behalf rather than doing their duties.

The intent of the heart

When you think about the dream that has sustained a nation for more than 200 years, you have to consider that men have fought and died, for that freedom…

When you begin to imagine the future of America it is hard to think about what you see in the stock markets today as something that is good leadership. It is hard to imagine that this is hope and change…

When you look at the value of the dollar and the value of the economy and the number of jobs lost, it is obvious that the policies of the last three years just are not working.

Blaming bush is not working…

Blaming S & P is not working…

Blaming everyone for everything is not working…

Why is that?

Simple really it is not leadership…

You cannot lead the world, when you cannot provide leadership examples. In any organization the end result is the entire responsibility of the CEO of that organization, if everything goes right, then that CEO gets a great pay check and they get all the rewards that comes with doing a good job, you never see a CEO come out and say, well sorry our stock had not performed this year, it was the fault of that pretty girl I met last week I was just so distracted that I missed the curve and had a wreck. Yet, when you do that you undermine not only your own ability to lead but also the confidence that everyone else has in your ability to drive a car, let alone the idea that you also have no leadership skill, this nation needs some leadership, someone who will stand up and do the right thing for the American people.

What that means right now is yes to fulfill the oath, to defend the constitution.

When you lead you represent more than just your own thoughts and more than just your own needs or wants, you have to think for that organization, you have to consider more than just your own desires, otherwise how can you lead? There are some needs in this nation that need to be met, this does include health care, however, if it comes down to loosing an election how long will what you have accomplished remain? Not long at all, simply because the cost of such infamy, is too high. In order to truly lead we must have the ability to look beyond the small borders of what we “think” is right and learn what is really right, that means that to continue in failure is not really an option at all here, we cannot just keep on trying to get a different outcome by doing the same things over and over again, that is madness.

There are some good leadership ideas out there, starting with a Flat Tax, to get the revenue that will pull us out of this tail spin, a fair tax, as they call it is not only fair, but prudent, it would bring in Billions of dollars, but that is not enough because we have seen what happens when a lot of money is available they spend it, yes, just like many people would do, if they suddenly had a lot of money and were not used to having that much money they would spend it on dumb things, however, we cannot afford to do that, we are more than the sum of our fears, and the means of our minds, we are America, that means that not only are we what we represent ourselves to be but also we are our future generations of Americans.

What this means is that we simply cannot just give up and say oh well, we messed it up and now its just over, well that is just not the case at all, what needs to happen next is simple, we do need to pass Cut, Cap Balance, and Flat Tax, that is what the doctor ordered and that is what will get us out of this mess, if the president is not capable of leading then the congress is required to do it for him. It is time that we the people stand up for what is right, because we do not have the time to wait for the 2012 election we must act now, that means calling your congressman and state senators, and making it known to them that we need, a Cut Cap Balance and Flat Tax bill. It is not that hard to do, really you just put one foot in front of the other…

It is the intent of the heart that counts here and that intent must stand for liberty and freedom for all, not just the wants of the few but the needs of the many.

High Stakes poker

You know it is really amazing to watch the every increasing levels of vitriol, that you see on both sides of the political spectrum.

The future of the US is at issue here, yet, no one seems willing to step up to the plate and be a man.

Not the democrats and not the republicians.

They act like cowards, (sound like news story that we saw in the news not so long ago)

Remember all the crisis, crisis, crisis, that we saw in speech after speech, but has anything really changed, have you seen the hope that you voted for materalize or has it all just been empty theatre?

I really want to see good things happen and it is not really that hard to figure out how to make that happen.

  • When you have a corporation like GE, that basically made a ton of money, last year, and yet, did not pay its share of taxes, then you know there is a problem, yet no one wants to talk about that, why is that exactly?
     
  • When you have Millions of people that pay no taxes, that is a problem, (everyone can afford to pay something)
    (as long as its fair) Even if it just a few dollars a year, every dollar can add up to millions to help get us out of debt.
     
  • The last President that made a difference was Bill Clinton, he actuallty did something that worked, yet democrats are not interested in finding out what that was, the man that could make a difference is not at the table, interesting.

If we want real hope and change, for the American people we are going to have to set aside our differnces for the common good of the people and not just in words or fancy speeches written by men who do not care about the condition of this nation but by men who have a heart and a mind for the people by the people.

This is what will help change our nation, not the constant fighting, and cry baby news media statements.

We can no longer afford to ignore our position and just like anyone else out there, that is looking at having less than perfect credit if that is what it takes to get America back on track then let them say what they will, and just like millions of Americans all over the US, we may have to pay a bill a few days late.

If that is what it takes to get this nation back on track then we must do what it takes.

No more fear mongering, no more lies, no more fighting amoung your selves, American values have always delivered in times of real crisis not fake crisis like we have seen over the last three years.

It is time for real men to step up to the plate and get the job done, because this is the last opportunity to do that.

Yet we still have the media allegedly profiting from their ability to influence the markets.

This is a big problem, because they could actually be said to be in a position to profit from making a certain news story more "creative"

For example just this morning, Fox news Business, went with a story about how the stock market is down, since allegedly America might default, now that is just not true, yet, Fox news went with that story, and yes, watch the stock market to see what happens next.

Is it right, becasue a smart investor could pick and choose a certain stock that is impacted by this mini selloff, and then when the stock returns back to normal, (because a news story here and a news story there is more positive) then they can profit, that should not be allowed to happen.

Yet, it does…

Think about that. …

Is weiner a liar?

The question that many people have is simply this, if weiner was man enough to allegedly send a picture of his, well, weiner, to a young woman, then why is he not man enough to admit that he did this and get on with his career, I mean the guy is allegedly a huge joke, around Washington, no one really takes this guy seriously right?

You see this guy and you almost feel sorry for him, but not quite, because he has a problem with shooting off his mouth in public, in fact he likes to yell and scream at other people.

So, when this scandal broke, we did not feel sorry for mr, weiner.

We felt like he should be as manly about how that picture got to that innocent girl, (allegedly innocent) as he is about his rants in congress when he uses up valuable time ranting and screaming at people that have actually served their nation.

He on the other hand has not really done much (that we can find) unless you count being some what unfaithful at least in his heart, to his wife, so in that measure, you really feel a little sorry for the guy but then you remember how he tends to shout and scream at people and you no longer feel sorry for him at all.

So what do you think about this guy?

Should he admit what he has done, every one knows that if your a democrat, or is that demoncrat, you never can tell these days, anyway, they have this thing that is a double standard.

If your a republican, the media, calls for investigations and the senator or congressman must step down and resign right away, even if they are not guilty. All it takes is that someone thinks they might be guilty.

If the media were fair about this then they would be asking and demanding that weiner resign.

Everything about this case suggests that this man is guilty.

Yet because he is a democrat, or demoncrat, he plans on walking for what he has done, you just have to wonder, if this is really what the democrats are all about, is this why we are in such a bad shape in this nation now?
