Is it possible that all we have to do is vote out office every incumbent, regardless of party until they got the message. Read the following and decide.  The choice to act is in our hands.....

EVERY CITIZEN NEEDS TO READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS JOURNALIST HAS  SCRIPTED IN THIS MESSAGE.  READ IT  AND THEN REALLY THINK ABOUT  OUR CURRENT POLITICAL DEBACLE.
Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.
 

545  PEOPLE
By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world  who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever  wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if  all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have  inflation and high taxes?
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.
What  separates a politician from a normal human being is an  excessive amount of gall.  No normal  human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating  deficits.  The president can only propose a budget.  He cannot force the Congress to accept  it.
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?  Nancy Pelosi. She is  the leader of the majority party. She 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.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not 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.
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 , it's because they want them in IRAQ
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.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people 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.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
Don't let anymore smoke get blown up your butt.
