How can you tell if politicians are lying? See if their mouths are moving.
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them. ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits? ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes? ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does. You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does. One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank. I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes. Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party. It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist. ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people [the executive, congressional, and judicial branches of Government] exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist. If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red. If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ... If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way. ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
There are no insoluble government problems.~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
Do not let these 545 people [the executive, congressional, and judicial branches of Government] shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do. ~ Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
