Letter to the Editor

Stop corporate America and the gool ole boy beast

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

I read an article by Bill Bennett and he has a lot of good things to say. I agree with him that we need a change in our government and I don't have all the answers. He says that, "There is an unholy dynamic between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it's in all of their interests to protect one another. It's one for all and all for one."

We can all agree that it's a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich, everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We're the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. We have a group running for President that has connections with other politicians that are part of the a good old boys club. They talk big, but they won't change a thing. They are all beholden to big-money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, and multinational corporations - like Big Pharmacy or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock, stock, and barrel by foreigners like George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary and their Clinton Foundation donations.

These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big money. We need to elect someone who isn't beholden to anyone. We need to elect a president who doesn't need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Auto Workers, or the teacher's union, or the Service Employees International Union, or the Bar Association to fund a campaign.

We need a candidate that doesn't care what the media says. One who doesn't care what the corporate elites think. This candidate will be very dangerous to the entrenched interests. He will be a huge threat to those people and this person can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slave masters.

Don't you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don't you wonder why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell talk a big game, but never actually tried to stop Obama? Don't you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet has never tried to defund Obamacare or Obama's clearly illegal executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It defies logic, right?

First, I'd guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having affairs, or secretly gay, or stealing taxpayer money, the National Security Agency knows everything.

Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money from his own bank account. The NSA, the SEC, the IRS, and all the other three-letter government agencies are watching... Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called racists, so they are scared to ever criticize Obama or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment. Fourth, why rock the boat? After defeat or retirement, if you're a good old boy, you've got a $5 million-per-year lobbying job waiting. The big-money interests have the system gamed. Win or lose, they win.

We need a President that doesn't play by any of these rules, a President that can ruin this nice, cozy relationship between big government, big media, and big business... We need a President who will question our relationship with Mexico; question why the border is wide open; question why no wall has been built across the border; question if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests; question why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes, yet are not deported; and question why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

We the American workers always get the short end of the stick. I would like to know what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare website. By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion. Someone needs to investigate and figure out if Obamacare's architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying. We need someone outside the circle of government to investigate Obama's widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama's college records. We need to find someone who has the courage to prosecute Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the election. How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election?

Someone needs to get in and look at the cooked books and Obama's records, then the game will be over. The jig will be up. The goose will be cooked. Holder could wind up in prison. Jarrett could wind up in prison. Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money. Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails or for accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State, or for misplacing $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying about Benghazi. The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison. Obamacare will be de-funded and dismantled. Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters. We all know that we don't elect the president, the Electoral College picks the President. The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The founding fathers established it in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens, I want to know if these qualified citizens are in someone's pocket?

When we watch on election night, it is deceiving when they talk about the votes of the people when it is the vote of the 538 who are on the Electoral College. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. Your state's entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for your Senators. Each candidate running for President in your state has his or her own group of electors. The electors are generally chosen by the candidate's political party, but state laws vary on how the electors are selected and what their responsibilities are.

Generally, the political parties nominate Electors at their State party conventions or by a vote of the party's central committee in each State. Each candidate will have their own unique slate of potential Electors as a result of this part of the selection process. Electors are often chosen to recognize service and dedication to their political party. They may be State-elected officials, party leaders, or persons who have a personal or political affiliation with the Presidential candidate. This practice lets the 538 people decide who your president is going to be, because it sure isn't YOU that elects the president.

Educate your friends and family and tell them to get involved. Investigate and find out who are your Electoral College Representatives and see if they are trustworthy or are they bought by corporate America and big businesses.
