In the last election 85% of the people in Congress got to keep their $14,108 a month jobs (which includes a $4,100 raise they just gave themselves!) despite the fact that it was the worst, do-nothing Congress in history and the bulk of them were responsible for authorizing the wars we’re in and everything else that has massively eroded our standard of living, security and of course our liberties and freedoms since 9-11. They ALL took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution and our Bill of Rights. They did not take an oath to defend and protect their political party and the interests of transnational corporations and cartels.
What would you do If you owned a company and none of your employees listened to you, they lied to you, didn’t do the jobs you gave them to do, and in fact, were actually working for your competition and selling your company down the river as fast as they could? I don’t think you’d keep them on and give them a raise!
Well, that’s exactly what we’ve been doing, only in this case, your company is our Federal Government, and your employees are the 435 members in the House of Representatives and the 100 members of the Senate, virtually all of them working for the transnational corporations (the competition) and they have already achieved a hostile takeover of our government on every level and are using the powers of our own government against us in order to take over our entire nation.
What the heck happened to that thing called “the wisdom of the American people?” You don’t reward employees that betray you. YOU FIRE THEM! It’s the most obvious and immediate remedy. And you don’t worry that their replacement may turn out to be as bad. In fact, it’s much less likely the replacements will be as bad when they know you will not tolerate such things, that you will not hesitate to fire anyone that lies and betrays your trust. Employees are far more likely to toe the line and actually do their jobs as best they can when they know they can’t get away with anything less.
Of course, no analogy is perfect. This one breaks down in the sense that a company couldn’t actually fire everyone all at once unless the entire company shut down. Lucky for us, our Congress isn’t engaged in actually producing goods or services (the bureaucracies Congress has set up handle all government services). All Congress does is enact laws and authorize spending. It’s just the legislative branch of government. We could easily go without any new laws authored by “corporate/special interest” for quite some time. So in this case, firing a large number of traitorous Congressional employees is imminently doable and quite frankly is the only thing we can do to slam the brakes on the corporate driven freight train that is railroading all of us into a nation ruled by corporate colonialism.
There are people we have elected to Congress who have been there 10, 20, 30, 40, even over 50 years! Our Congress has been betraying our trust and selling us out for generations. They not only suffer no consequences for what they’ve done; they’ve benefited greatly from their wheeling and dealing. They take an oath to protect our best interests and defend our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and yet they make a mockery of that oath.
Republicans and Democrats take the exact same oath of office and very few of them take it seriously.
“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.”
There is a very good reason we make them all take this oath. Strict adherence to the Constitution is the ONLY thing that makes it a LOT harder for those with the most wealth to seize the powers of government and use it for their own selfish purposes. Our Congress has totally abdicated their responsibilities and handed the powers of government over to corporate interests that have absolutely no allegiance to this nation, to the Constitution, and certainly not to playing fair. Both major political parties are complicit. They have shredded the Constitution and Bill of Rights and are about to blow the Constitutional Confetti into the air as they celebrate “closing the deal” with their “real employers,” the transnational corporate interests that have orchestrated the whole mess.
The dominant ideologies of the most destructive and powerful transnational corporations are predatory and tyrannical in nature. The notion that they are even remotely interested in such things as “free trade,” or democracy flies in the face of basic common sense. The corporations wreaking the most havoc on this planet, the central banks, the military, medical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and energy industrial complexes, have set up monopolies and cartels by using the powers of government to legislate and regulate the industries they wish to control. The people inclined to abuse their wealth and power do what they always have done throughout history. They TAKE the most, give the least, and don’t give a damn about the rest of humanity.
There is a mountain of evidence, a small fraction of it is posted on this web site, to prove that powerful transnational corporations, through their control of our election process, the legislative powers of government, the courts, the international treaty process, the world’s currencies and of course, virtually total control of our mainstream media, have just about totally taken over our country. If we don’t take control of Congress away from them, and fast, by a massive act of civil disobedience like this project is proposing (by not voting the way they want us to), we are simply not going to survive as a nation much longer the way things are going.
The bottom line question is, what sense does it make to allow the vast majority of people in Congress to remain there for one second longer than absolutely necessary? There is an endless stream of people pissing and moaning about how Congress is screwing us up one side and down the other and yet nobody will do a damn thing to MAKE SURE they all get voted out of office. If we don’t make a point of doing just that, most all of them will get reelected yet again and they will most certainly give themselves another raise for the fine job of screwing us they’ve been doing. Then they will wrap up the task of destroying this country for the International Bankers, the people they really work for. We pay their salaries and the Bankers reap all the rewards. It’s INSANE to allow any of the people to remain in Congress!
We can totally hijack the upcoming election and use the
power of our votes to effect sweeping change NOW!
