... [I]f we had more
elected offices, more representatives, would this not require more office space,
more secretaries, more "lawyers" sitting in offices next to each new legislator?
Would it not mean massive expense to the people to provide this office space,
and salaries? Because even though the legislator who was elected to
serve, the lawyers and secretaries have to have salaries. And then what
about the aids, who are supposed to do all the research for the elected? they
also have to be paid.
You see, every good idea comes back to "compensation", and who
picks up the tab?
We haven't even touched on the office furnishings, computers,
and other items that each legislator gets to take with them when they leave
office, and this flows over to the secretary and lawyers, just little perks of
the job! Oh, let us not forget, the petty cash funds, for the cocktail parties,
and the bands and dancing girls in the court areas.
Would not a smaller government, with all new members, who have
to think for themselves and who serve on a voluntary basis, and take
directions from the people, be more effective?
IF, there were no lifetime payments to legislators, judiciary,
and executive officers, and their spouses. would this not be more in line
of the best interest of the people? Have you done the research and math on
this issue? I have! Take away all this expense, and our nation would be solvent
in no time!
IF, we were not required to keep an attorney on payroll, a
dentist, a doctor, an insurance company, and a social worker in every home,
permits, licenses, would we not have back freedom of choice? The ability to
think, instead of fear of breaking the law?
The way the system now works, we are slaves, working, getting
nowhere, to feed and house the ones who do not work, to pay for space programs,
research, grants, and vacations and perks for those already in government, and
simply asking a police officer a question can result in serving a stretch in one
of the correction facilities, built
by foreign funding, and guaranteed to be kept full by our
I really did not want to get into this, because from my
experience, I could write a book, in fact volumes of books, but I am not
interested in "compensation."
I support freedom, the right to pursue happiness, mom and pop businesses,
and those who do not work shall not eat!
We need to dump the present system, and get back to the
basics, living on and off the land, not government handouts! We need land,
freedom, clean air, not stock markets, huge bank buildings, embassies,
multi-million dollar court houses, and law firms and insurance companies, we
need to stay out of space, and stop polluting the air we breath, the water we
drink, and stop the wars, to control and take over the world, we need to stop
messing with other countries and their governments, we need to let the people of
the world, live under the governments they create, and let them fight their own
Have you taken the square miles of this nation, and divided it
by the population? Very interesting thing to do, but then the government can
better control a population when they are confined within a "city", and not
permitted to raise their own meat, vegetables, and teach their own children.
Forced to live under rules and regulations, the government owns the
children, through the welfare and numbering system. The permission to marry,
gives the government a 3rd party interest in a family, and total control of
everyone, how they think, act, where they work, live, raise the children, and
charges them a fee for all these "privileges" called taxation!
When we get our county under control, and our freedom back,
then we can be a role model for other countries, not the machine that rolls in
and murders and kills the people of other nations and countries.
We can settle the national debt, and be self sustaining, when
we stop spending what we do not have, instead of looking for ways to spend even
more, and provide for more of the wealthy to join the ranks of the already
Have you ever watched the movie for children " The never
ending story" where the nothing is coming? Well, you should, because with the
course we are following, the "nothing" is bearing down on us.
Ever heard of Mary Webster, ever been to the AVALON PROJECT?
Ever read completely the "articles of Confederation"? I have!
Sorry, I do not mean to dampen your spirits, but before you
can engage in a venture, you need to research all avenues, know the answers
before the questions are asked, and be ready to answer without hesitation,
or "I will have to get back with you on that".
When you focus on one issue, one thought, and lose sight of
the big picture, you box yourself in, and we are not dealing with the past, we
are dealing with NOW, and tomorrow, and tomorrow is fast vanishing for all of
us, unless we do something NOW! Short of civil war, or the coming together of
the American common man, woman and every able bodied person over the age of 18,
we are doomed. Everyone has great ideas, but no common denominator to pull the
Web sites are a tool, an aid, but they are small in the
equation, because of getting the attention to get the traffic to the sites, it
takes people working together for a common goal, and educating the public
masses, and at this point in time, we do not have media support, except for
public broadcasting stations, and everyone is too busy watching the sports
channels, lifting the beer bottle or wine glass, or going to Wallyworld, to
listen to the ones who are trying to tell them we are in a crisis.
It never amazes
me the ignorance of People. They are constantly looking for an answer, but can
never recognize the answer when it is staring them in the face. I like to give
the illustration of the BridgeBuilders.
A man comes up
with a great idea, we need to build a bridge across the river for the public
good. He sells the idea and gathers support for the cause. A work crew
arrives and the work is begun.
comes along and thinks the objective is meritorious, and decides to begin the
work on his own bridge just a 100 feet from the first at a slightly
different angle. Then yet another gentleman comes along and decides to start a
third bridge project, claiming he can do the job cheaper and faster. And
lastly yet another thinks he can compete with the former three projects and
winds up recruiting workers from the other
In due time,
weather conditions and a job strike interrupts the work with the workers
leaving town. Eventually, everyone of the four projects went bankrupt
leaving four concrete abutments standing with bridges
a various stages of completion, and the results is that there
exists no bridge across the river serving the public good.
Years later a new
gentleman arrives in town and comes up with a bright idea that the town needs a
bridge over the river, but can find no interest from the
People are still
