Something to Think About

I received the following in my email and thought it worth sharing:



WRITTEN BY A 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do the best.

This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it. It's her future she's worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she's being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX , Nov 18, 2011


Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."

Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

What Will be the Long Term Effects of the 2012 Elections?

We have arrived at a critical point in our countries existence according to both the Democrats and the Republicans who hold sway over the national media. I tend to agree with these people but my reasoning is most likely different then most of the elected politicians, I do believe that we are at a very critical point for country but the elections of 2012 are only going to determine if we pass thru this critical point onto a path that continues to lead this country into socialism or if we are going to continue he slow creep towards socialism.

Our current elected officials clearly do not care if they are perceived leading the country to socialism they are only concerned if they are perceived as doing it to quickly. The candidates for Republicans are using terms like replace instead of repeal when it comes to most all government programs that are hot topics on the election trail, these people clearly think they can run it better when they should not be involved with certain things in the first place. Democrats are evening using terms that clearly indicate that they plan on adding to the power grabs that have already taken place with the Federal Government, which will Fundamentally Change our country for ever.

How many people in our country look first to the Government when they have any type of problem? How many people ask the question where is the Government when a natural disaster occurs? How many people have the belief that they are entitled to have the Government take care of their every need?

Where are the people that stand tall and look themselves to solve their own problems and freely offer their help to their neighbors when they are trouble? Where are the people that believe and understand what it means to be independent? Where are the people that understand what price has been paid and what price will be paid for this country to remain free?

I honestly believe that if the current administration is reelected the Governments over reach will continue to pick up speed and we may never get it stopped. If the proposed new administration is put in place there is no indication that we will be reversing course any time soon, but the so called good news is that it may slow down the decent into socialism.

So in reality the 2012 election will not change very much when it is all said and done. The people who are dependent on the Government will still be dependent and those who are doing every thing they can to be Independent will continue to fight for it. Unfortunately for those who are trying to be Independent we are going to be out number by those who are willing dependent on the government, so our battle has just gotten hard.

honor demands

The Principles and values we hold dear are guarded only by truth.

These words are important because if it is truth it must be learned , taught, and defended, even when it hurts.
No honorable person can defend a lie.

The first truth of this nation is men and women died to be free. Thus freedom is owed because it was earned and it is time to honor that dream, that cause of freedom.

We can repair the mistakes of an honorable man for they will hold themselves accountable, but we can never fix the destruction caused by a lie.

Free and Unaffiliated.
The cause of freedom that refuses to die.
Put freedom first
And we will all win.

Stealing your way into heaven?

Freedom is a gift to us from our creator.
Limiting choice is limiting freedom.

The R&D show uses government(using gerrymandering and election laws/practices) to maintain their power and give themselves immortality, thus limiting choice and freedom.

Is this not stealing a gift from our creator?

Free  & Unaffiliated

Taxes paid by Consumers

Most people think the only taxes they pay to the Federal Government are the ones directly confiscated from their weekly pay checks and on April 15th of every year. A large part of the people who live in America do not understand that they are paying taxes to the Federal Government on everything they purchase from gas for the car to food at the grocery store, I am not referring to the various sales taxes.

Each and every business has taxes they have to pay for the business and for each person they employ. If a business is going to survive they have to factor all the taxes into the actual cost of manufacturing what ever their products is, this leads to the taxes that have been levied against the business to be passed along to each and every consumer that decides to by their products.

Keeping this in mind every time a politicians states that a certain type of business needs to have more regulations and should have to pay more taxes the end consumers are the ones that are going to feel the tax burden not the business. So any new taxes or regulation are a back door way to increase the tax burden on each and every one of the people who actually pay taxes.

Has the mid term Election of 20 10 really changed anything?

The mid term election of 2010 has made one change that every one in the country can see, we no longer have one party in control of the House of Representatives, Senate, and Presidency. The republicans have taken control of the House of Representatives and increased the number of seats in the Senate, but what can the American Citizens really expect to change in the next two years? I do not mean to make it sound like nothing was accomplished but we should also not get our hopes up that every thing is now going to change.

Lets face reality, the people who were in charge of the Republican party during the Great Republican Spending Spree are still in charge now four years after being removed from power in 2006 mid term election. Have any of these leaders shown us that they now understand the error of their ways and that they are going to represent the people best interest before their own interest? We have some people paying lip service to banning earmarks and others paying lip service to being willing to work the president if he moves towards the center, this sound to me like we are willing to compromise as long as we are getting what we want for personal political gain.

Why are they only talking about banning earmarks, why are they not talking about eliminating them permanently? The reason why is simple (POWER), as long as the politicians have the power to redistribute tax dollars to their pet project they will have the power to buy the peoples votes.The solution is to eliminate the earmarks.

If we want real change in how our government runs our country then we as a people need to change how we run our lives. The people that are to DC are direct representation of the people who elected them to office. When we start holding ourselves to higher standard we can justifiably hold our politicians to the same standards.

All the power to save our country is in our hands, the only real problem is do we stand up and use that power to save our country?

Eliminating Poverty

Why does our country declare war on poverty? Why has our country not fought this war with right tools to winning this war? Why has our politicians created a war on poverty expressly for their own political gain?

The simple answer is that they believe it is what a vast majority of the American people wanted to hear. With that in mind they proceed in the typical government way of trying to eliminate poverty through regulation, new governmental programs, and simply throwing money at the problem. This is the only way that the people in Washington know how to try to solve problems and this solution has been tried many times an yet it still fails to this day. Our education system is in disarray but they continue to throw money at it in the hope they can spend their way out of the problem. It is time to stop with the insanity and try to solve the problem in a different direction.

I propose that the way to solve the poverty problem is actually quite simple but very painful in the short term. If we want to mostly solve the poverty problem, we all know that not every one can be lifted out of poverty because to be lifted will require effort from the individual, we need to stop throwing money at the problem. The money that is being spent by our government to try and help people in poverty is being wasted by passing through all the different bureaucratic hands on its way to the people who could use the help. Lets keep the money that is being sent to Washington to be redistributed to the poor in the local communities where they can redistribute more of the money directly to the people that can use it.

The second step in eliminating poverty is to have jobs available for people to work at. To solve this part of the poverty problem we need to create an environment that is business friendly. If business are not able to hire due to the taxes that are levied against them from the government and regulation that restrict how they operate their business where are the jobs going to come from for those in poverty? When business are able to make profits they expand their businesses which most often requires more employees. So to create the new jobs that will be needed for all those that are now living in poverty we need businesses to be able to create the new jobs.

The third step in eliminating poverty is the taxes that are paid by all those who are earning a living. People need to be able to keep the lion share of what they are earning through the time and effort. This will also have to apply to the people who are willing to take the risk of creating news business ventures which leads to new job creation. When the people get to keep the lion share of their money they will spend it on what they need and not what the government thinks that they need.

The fourth and final step in eliminating poverty is going to be the most difficult of all to implement. This step will require the government to stop the practice of trying to make every ones life as painless as possible. People in poverty will need to have the freedom to be employed as they wish but also be responsible for their decisions regardless whether or not they are good decisions. I know it is hard for people to stand by and watch as some one else is making a mistake, but almost all people learn from their failures and when they try again they do not make the same mistakes.

If this was implemented it would have the following effects:

  1. Reduce Government Spending (Something all people want)
  2. New Job Creation (Something all people want)
  3. Lower Individual Taxes and Business Taxes (Something all people want)
  4. Fewer People On Government Subsidized Program like Welfare (Something all people want)
  5. An Economy the is Growing Due to Demand (Something all people want)
  6. An Employment Market that businesses are competing for Employees (Something all people want)
    1. By the way this would lead to higher wages for the employees due to businesses wanting the best available people and a willingness to pay for them, sound like free market principles being applied to employment.
This is a difficult solution to the problem that effects every one in our country, but the longer we wait the problems grows and the painful solution will grow accordingly.
