You can call it Free Enterprise if you like, but the banking system controls the faucet for the life blood of all enterprise. It can put the economy on its back, and it can put people in soup lines. Interest rates should always be low and stable, and money should always be available to exchange the goods and services that the hands and minds of people produce. There is no need ever for a roller coaster economy of booms and busts. The medium of exchange is too important to all enterprise to be in the hands of private enterprise.
RECESSION is a product of the blatant ignorance of the President, Congress, Economists, and the News Media who do not understand Nature’s Basic Law of Economics, and
Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution.
Nature’s Basic Law of Economics states: All goods and services flow from the action of people resources on natural resources— Money is the medium of exchange which should be equal to the value of the goods and services—and not to a gold standard or some other insane idea.

THE GREATEST DANGER FACING AMERICA TODAY IS THE MINDSET THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS ABOUT MONEY. They have not read Article 1, section 8, of the Constitution which gives the Federal Government the power to create money equivalent to the value of the goods and services the American people produce. The lack of money is the cause of this recession.
The ignorance of people like Lou Dobbs (a Republican who is ashamed to be called one), and people like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reily, Hannity’s America (not a place I would like to live), and Glen Beck (who have no shame) is overwhelming the ideas that cause economic problems, and then they try to prevent problems from being solved by feeding their ignorant ideas to the Republicans.
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BORROW ONE PENNY TO PAY FOR THE STIMULUS PLAN.
The Constitution, Article 1, section 8, gives the Federal Government the right to create the money. The only question that needs to be asked: Are there people resources and natural resources available? And the answer is yes. Money is the medium of exchange. Goods and services have the real value.
REPUBLICANS COULD UPSTAGE DEMOCRATS
If Republicans would take two great steps forward by forcing Democrats to support a one pay Universal Health-Care System and a new Department of Consumers Affairs, they could win the hearts and minds of millions.
Universal Health Care would make it possible for all Ma and Pa businesses to compete with the Wal-Mart’s which killed millions of small businesses. It would help many small businesses with fewer than twenty five employees to compete with larger companies. With a Department of ConsumersAffairs, consumers could control the price gouging by big oil and big business which destroys the medium of exchange.
SENATOR GRAHAM tells people that the Federal Government’s debt is the same as theirs and that the states budgets are the same. Individuals and state governments do not have the Constitutional authority to create money– but the Federal Government does and should create enough money so everyone can balance their budgets.
NATIONAL DEBT… Those who think that America could go broke or be ruined because of the national debt are not thinking. As long as America has people resources and natural resources, America will be able to produce goods and services which have real value.
he present national debt has already moved the goods and services. It has no more value. It never needed to be in the first place. It only exists because of the belief that money should be tied to something other than the value of the goods and services it exchanges.
ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO DO is to divorce oneself from their father’s politics and religion. The do nothing Republicans are making it much easier for thinking people to divorce themselves for their father’s politics. We need to bury the Republican Party in 2010– and start a new party which would be at least two steps ahead of the Democratic Party.
TAXATION should be one of a three- legged stool consisting of: creating money, borrowing money and taxing in order to have a balanced money supply. Taxation should be on a fixed rate—but indexed. Creating new money should be accepted. Borrowing money should be given more thought.
A TRILLION DOLLARS IS A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY relative to the world economy, and the money needed to exchange goods and services.
Why doesn’t the news media know that the word INFLATION is just an EUPHEMISM for theft?
President Obama is the person who will make my dreams come true.
My Vision For the 21st Century and Beyond
For many people around the world, the coming of the year 2000 seems to have little significance…nothing more than a change of numbers on the calendar or a different set of digits on a computer screen or in a personal checkbook. But I view the approach of the new millennium quite differently. To me, it
seems a most auspicious occasion, truly a time for a new beginning for humankind…a time when human hearts, minds and souls will be receptive to a new philosophy, a time when people around the world will long for and finally achieve a common mindset…leading to a collective attitude that, for the first time in human history, will usher in a long-lasting era of peace and prosperity for all citizens of planet earth.
Indeed, by the year 2000, many factors favoring an instant mindset change will already be in place…communicative, scientific, and technological advancements; improved worldwide economic conditions; settlement of geographic disputes; and growing political and religious tolerance. These factors will give citizens of planet earth cause to reflect, to adopt a new mindset one making it possible for those who have plenty to have even more and those who have not, to have plenty.
At the center of this new mindset are three fundamental principles: One, the world is now, more than ever before, an interdependent society, one where citizens of one country need the products and services of many others. Two, supplies of both people resources and natural resources already exist which are sufficient for supplying goods and services to satisfy the needs and desires of the entire world. Three, the United Nations can be restructured in the following ways: It should be empowered with authority to function as the world s police, with the ability for enforcing a new world order; it should have the right to hold leaders of any nation responsible for conflicts they might cause; and it should have powers of indictment for the purpose of bringing them to justice. The United Nations should dedicate itself to helping nations to work together to bring about practical solutions to common problems.
But how can we bring about a spirit of cooperation between government, business and the people? How can we unite public and private sectors in a working relationship such that the doors to individual opportunity will be flung wide open for all? How can we reshape our community so that all people will be able to find their way into society and reap fully the rewards of their labors? The answer, mixturism, a philosophy that blends the best features of public and private enterprise where pragmatism, not labels, rules.
History has shown that pure capitalism and pure socialism are deeply flawed. When one or the other system is practiced exclusively, problems are created, not solved. On the other hand, mixturism applies whichever approach seems most likely to solve a problem, regardless of whether it involves the private sector, the public sector, or joint private and public sectors working together. The philosophy of mixturism recognizes that there are five basic human needs which must be met:
- First, we must have a health care system thatwill provide the very best in medical care for everyone, from conception to death. Individual personal income should not determine eligibility.
- Second, we must develop a public and private system of education that will provide the best possible academic and vocational training for all people.
- Third, we must establish a reserve-retraining work-force system, surrounded and supported by full-service child-care capabilities. With such a system in place, no one who wants a job will ever be without one.
- Fourth, we must make it possible for every person to have a decent place to live, be it a house, an apartment or a condominium. To achieve this, we must be courageous enough to limit the number of people through sensible population control.
- Fifth, we must have a monetary system that will provide a balanced money supply at all times, one that is equivalent to the goods and services people s hands and minds can produce.
Mixturism addresses all these basic human needs. But to maximize the effectiveness of this philosophy, individuals must assume responsibility for their own success in life, recognizing that the family is paramount and that concern for the well-being of others is crucial to maintaining a civilized order. Each nation must work toward becoming a democratic society and must guarantee its people an individual bill of rights. The United Nations must protect these rights. But we must also ensure that the U.S. military can reinforce the United Nations and be independently capable of halting any aggression on its own.
With the dawning of the new millennium, humankind has the opportunity to embrace a new mindset…one which sets aside ideology and selfishness in favor
of pragmatic problem solving and cooperation. So, let us look forward to the 21st century.
Let us view it as a new beginning as we strive to create a new era of lasting peace and prosperity.
Mr. President, don’t let the thieves of Wall Street and big business steal your stimulus package with a price marker. They stole the Bush rebates before they ever got to the people. THESE THIEVES HAVE NO SHAME.
The Constitution does not give thieves the right to get whatever the traffic will bear.
