People will look at this site, rationalize "my life is good, this doesn’t effect me, why should I care?" and move on, impervious to danger, like the Captain of the Titanic steaming full speed toward the iceberg ahead. Since the spring of 1992, when the National Debt was only $4.1 trillion, letters and articles have been going out with the hope that reason would prevail, hope is not a plan and reason appears to be missing.
Neither you nor I voted for a National Debt of almost $16.8 trillion nor the squandering so far of $10.5 trillion on interest payments, but we are going to get stuck cleaning up this mess.
It seems that our politicians’
are somewhat confused, the reason a large number of us did not vote for Mr.
Romney and the Republicans was because President Obama and the Democrats were
viewed as the lesser of two evils, (that is a sad way to run this country). Note to and question for Democrats: At the time of our last election the Democrats were
viewed as the group that would do the lesser amount of damage. We are not
interested in the Democrats trashing our Constitution, this country has enough
problems, please keep your hands off the Bill of Rights.(armed citizens protecting
Why does the Department of Homeland Security need over 1.4 billion
bullits, 7000 assault rifles with high capacity magazines and 2700
armored vehicles, more armor then Hitler had when he ordered the attack
on Poland, who does the Department of Homeland Security plan on
fighting; Mexico, Canada or the citizens of this country? To many Politicians have proved themselves to be untrustworthy.
As in science, medicine, engineering and even finance there are laws and there are theories, one law that crosses all spectrums is the Law of Unintended Consequences: President Clinton could never have foreseen that Monica Lewinsky would not send her blue dress to the cleaners, but instead leave the stain as a keepsake. The married Speaker of the House and prosecutor at President Clinton's impeachment trial, Newt Gingrich was having an affair while airing Ms. Lewinsky’s dirty laundry. After Gingrich, came the Speaker-designate, Representative Bob Livingston, who announced the end of his candidacy for Speaker and his resignation from Congress from the floor of the House after his own marital infidelity came to light.
Most people did not care, nor did they want to know about the sexual escapades of Clinton or Gingrich or Livingston. It was the Republican hypocrisy, which became known because of the Law of Unintended Consequences that really ticked people off.
Back to our debt problem
The greed, maneuvering and hypocrisy of to many elected officials is disgusting. Some of us do not suffer from amnesia, we have a $16.8 trillion debt because the Republicans took this country off the gold standard back in 1971, when Nixon was President, to pay for the War in Vietnam and this country has been living on borrowed money ever since. in 2001 instead of using the surplus money the government was taking in to pay down “our” National Debt, President Bush and the Republicans (G.O.P.) decided to run up a Strategic Deficit, never taking into consideration the law of unintended consequences, (Strategic deficit to cut programs) this plan was concocted while the Republican President Reagan was in office.
Interest paid out since the start of the Reagan Republican era exceeds $10.5 trillion! Interest (usury) paid out for fiscal year 2012 which ended Sept. 30 2012 was $434,796,008,919; imagine the infrastructure that could have been repaired, the space programs lost, the medical research that could have been accomplished instead of tossing the people's money away on interest.
From 1940 through 1963 the highest tax rate was over 80 percent going as high as 94 percent according to the IRS site on tax rates. That is how World War II & the Korean Wars the Interstate Freeway System our bridges and the infrastructure was paid for.

Many who have taken the Oath of Office for the U.S. Congress (Senate & House) abdicated their responsibility to the Constitution and took a second oath instead supporting Grover Norquist:
I, _____, pledge to the taxpayers of the (____ district of the) state of ______ and to the American people that I will: ONE, oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rate for individuals and business; and TWO, oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.
Oath of Office for the United States Congress:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Senator Grassley was first elected in 1974 the National Debt was not yet a Trillion dollars; on Senator Grassleys's watch the National Debt has increased over $16.4 trillion
Senator Levin was first elected in 1979 the National Debt was not yet a Trillion dollars; on Senator Levin's watch the National Debt has increased over $16 trillion.
Senator McCain started out in 1982 when the National Debt was $1.1 trillion and has been in office for $15.7 trillion of the debt. Senator McCain signed the Grover Norquist Pledge.
Senator Mitch McConnell was first elected to the Senate in 1984, at that time the National Debt was only $1.5 trillion; on Senator McConnell's watch the National Debt has increased over $15.3 trillion. Senator McConnell signed the Grover Norquist Pledge.
When Speaker of the House Boehner, who signed the Grover Norquist Pledge, was first elected in 1990 the National Debt was $3.3 trillion, Mr. Boehner has been in office for $13.6 trillion of the National Debt.
When Senators Feinstein and Murray were first elected in 1992 the National Debt was $4 Trillion; on Senator Feinstein's & Murray's watch the National Debt has increased over $12.8 trillion.
When Paul Ryan, who also signed the Grover Norquist Pledge was first elected in 1998 the National Debt was $5.5 trillion.
When Eric Cantor, also a signer of the Grover Norquist Pledge was first elected in 2000 the Nation Debt was $5.6 trillion.
Senator Graham signed the Norquest Pledge also; when Senator Graham was first elected the National Debt was $4.5 Trillion.
The worst problem in the sewer is not the smell, it is that the sewer is full of turds; don’t expect much from our wonderful elected officials, it would appear many are sitting at the table of an insiders’ game. Because we refuse to wake-up, or learn from history, it looks like we will have to suffer the results.
TYRANNY OF USURY
When you consider the debt load of Greece or Italy and the austerity measures that they are being forced to endure to borrow money, there is a serious problem approaching. Interest rates on the debt of some Euro-zone countries are now over 7%; doubling the interest rates on U.S. debt would raise our interest to 6.5%; our interest payment would go from $434 billion per year to $878 billion per year, thereby rendering the United States, financially, little more than a glorified third world country.
Fixing the finances of this country needs to become our first priority. Nothing else will matter if our financial house is not put in order. Hopefully while reading this, thoughtful consideration will be given to the fact that your kids and grandkids are going to inherit the unintended consequences of this mess. This is not just their problem, but yours and mine also. Social Security has been used by your elected members of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate as a slush fund; Over $4.8 Trillion has been “borrowed” from Social Security!

Despite being warned, President Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. A few years later he wrote:I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. -Woodrow Wilson
From 1945-1971, the period of the "gold exchange standard",
the US fixed the dollar to gold at $35 an ounce. Doubling the
price to $70 per oz equals a 100% increase; at $350 an oz that is a
1000% price increase.
The total amount of gold owned by the U.S. Treasury is 261,498,926 ounces.
For the United States to go back to the gold standard each ounce of gold that the Federal Government owns would have to be priced over $63,480; Leaving the gold standard in 1971 so that paper money without a standard could be printed to pay for the Vietnam War started the slide that let our elected officials in United States run up this disastrous National Debt.
“The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.” – Thomas Jefferson
Long ago Thomas Jefferson wrote
“I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debt, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.”

Reserve Bank (which is not run by the United States government and which came into existence
because of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913) is said to be currently engaged in a controversial policy known as
quantitative easing, buying $45 billion in Treasuries each month ($540 Billion per year) and $40 billion
mortgage-backed securities each month($480 Billion per year). The goal is to lower long-term interest
rates, and thereby stimulate more lending by banks and more spending by
businesses and consumers. My question is who pays this bill and who recieves the profits?
Federal Reserve Bank Vice Chairman Janet Yellen said
the Federal Open Market Committee won’t begin to shrink the Federal
Reserve Bank’s record
balance sheet until after it starts raising the benchmark interest rate.
“The committee has made very clear that it intends to hold on its balance sheet all the assets we acquire in this purchase program until after we begin raising the federal funds rate,” Yellen said today in Washington. “The committee’s intention is to leave that accommodation in place until well into the recovery.” Yellen, the Federal Reserve Bank’s No. 2 official, affirmed the sequence of steps in the central bank’s strategy to normalize its policy, which was adopted in June 2011.

To truly understand how bad the Elephants & Asses rolled over for the Pimps on Wall Street, (To any elected official who did not prostitute himself or herself to the Pimps of Wall Street I apologize.) my recommendation is read the book: And Then the Roof Caved In: How Wall Street’s Greed and Stupidity Brought Capitalism to Its Knees, by David Faber and then watch the documentary Inside Job, by Charles Ferguson; at which point I hope that everyone will understand why it is no longer Republicans & Democrats and Wall Street & our Elected Officials but rather Elephants & Asses and Pimps & their prostitutes.]
