Would You Do If You Were President?

How LewRockwell.com Caused a Phony Flu Vaccination Campaign To Implode
York Times Sunday Review asks twelve prominent Americans WHAT
THEY WOULD DO IF THEY WERE PRESIDENT.
We can understand
a truck driver with little education and struggling to provide for
his family is totally distracted and has no time to contemplate
a fix for what ails America. But here we see a dozen learned, erudite
Americans who suggest such nonsense as "forming a committee,"
mixing the upper classes with the masses, draw a line on policies
and let the public know "where I stand," require Congressional
leaders to participate in workshops to create meaningful dialogue,
take more risks to research and develop inventions, or educate dysfunctional
Hey, all this
is fine and dandy. You mean those guys in the White House and Congress
can just be blown over with a whiff of fresh political air and all
those entrenched forces (military, banking, medicine, education,
oil and energy companies) who are standing in the way of progress
and who promote the status quo can be overcome in a midnight second?
If you want
to talk about real change and progress in America, then why not
facilitate some of the following?
has a car that gets 260-miles to the gallon. You won't see
it any time soon in the USA. It would disrupt the oil cartel's
hold over America.
Cable, a small start-up company has a new type of power cable
that would eliminate the need for hundreds of fossil-fueled power
plants by saving electricity that is lost during transmission.
Stringing Mercury Cable’s new technology to replace existing outdated
power lines would save over $60 billion a year, just for the major
cross-State trunk lines that supply America with power. In other
words, installation of this new power cable technology would pay
for itself in just one year. Mercury Cable isn't finding a welcome
mat here in the USA and is largely taking initial orders for its
product from foreign nations. U.S. power companies don’t want
any new technology that would lower electricity rates.
- Dr. John
Cannell is single-handedly leading an under-funded revolution
in American medicine where a ten-cent vitamin, vitamin D, would
quell most diseases and lower mortality rates, essentially solving
the American healthcare funding crisis by reducing demand for
care. We’re talking about savings
in the trillions of dollars here. The Vitamin
D Council website will tell you more about this.
is no impetus in Congress or in the hallways of American medical
institutions to adopt vitamin D into daily health regimens
of Americans, let alone fortify foods with this nutrient.
Instead, drug companies are cooking up synthetic versions
of vitamin D, sold with the imprimatur of being FDA-approved,
to profiteer off the idea, at greater expense to Americans.
Just one of
the twelve "If I was President" commentators at
The New York Times, Dr. Andrew Weil, the famed Harvard botanist,
said: "I’d tell the nation that I was powerless to control the
war machine, Wall Street, big oil and the other interests that run
the country, and I would urge Americans to form a new political
party not beholden to them."
Americans missing the bigger more obvious picture?
I mean, don't educated Americans see all the fraud, that reckless
bankers need to be jailed rather than just fined (did you read the
report where big
banks stole small profits from retirement plans in currency
trading and it all added up to billions of dollars?). Where can
you steal money and just give it all back and go on with your life?
Do only small-time bank robbers go to jail?
see that the Federal Reserve Bank, the FDIC, the Securities Exchange
Commission, and the US Treasury Department are a racketeering syndicate
that dilutes and devalues and outright steals the wealth of Americans
by printing more money and then pays banks not to use it, pays dividends
to bank stockholders while paying next to nothing in interest on
savings accounts, lies about real inflation and unemployment rates,
has created quasi-government entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac so bankers can palm off their bad loans on the public, and creates
money as an IOU (dollar bill) but has no provision for the interest
on that created debt-money, so there is never enough money to pay
the interest and the system faces inevitable implosion at some point
in time? These government entities are created to shove all losses
onto the public and away from private ledgers.
Can’t we see
that money is no longer being invested to grow new business and
employment but rather to produce wealth for a few elites in speculative
profits generated in the stock markets? Making a fortune in day
trading is the order of the day, not investing money in a new venture
and waiting for stock dividends. The stock markets have become a
gambling parlor rather than conduit for investment.
realize that onerous taxes have forced American businesses to divert
profits offshore where tax rates are lower? Yes, corporations should
pay their fair share, but they also have to compete with foreign
corporations that are taxed at much lower rates. An
offer by industry to bring trillions of offshore dollars to America
was rejected by The White House because it would reduce taxes and
favor the wealthy. So the money and jobs remain offshore in this
If you want
to fix America, then ……
Hey, if you
want to fix America, listen first to Ron Paul, who IS running for
President, and needs no committees or wasted time to formulate his
ideas. He knows what to do, such as:
off over $1 trillion of debt the federal government owes to
entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that spawn irresponsible
of raising taxes at the same time government is downsized, lower
taxes and reduce government spending so that capital will be available
to create new jobs for displaced federal workers;
4) undo what
President Nixon did 40 years ago and back
the nation’s currency with gold, which would solve the world’s
financial crisis in a heartbeat. Confidence in the US Dollar would
be restored, other currencies would follow, and the nation would
stop creating false growth with counterfeit confetti money;
the interest rates on money banks loan (in this case, directly
from the US Treasury rather than the Federal Reserve) so as to raise
interest rates on banked money and encourage savings, rescuing Americans
whose banked money is eroding in purchasing power at the pace of
inflation and also to inhibit over-spending by politicians as living
off of borrowed money would cost more;
the Federal government which is paid off by special interests
to maintain the status quo. Eliminate the FDA, IRS, FDIC, the Federal
Reserve bank, all which serve as false props for special interests,
and shove these functions onto the individual States, where competition
among States would eliminate so many bad programs and ideas.
their country to a fault. These ideas may have once seemed preposterous,
but Ron Paul’s words have gained a growing acceptance.
Presidential candidate live up to their words?
So, do you
hear any of the other candidates trolling the nation for the Presidential
nomination consistently saying these things and meaning it? The
last few Presidents said one thing to get elected and then did another.
between States is good
You can see
this now as it took just six months for the State of Wisconsin to
get its budget under control and turn a surplus and become friendly
to business and actually add
new jobs for its work force. The same goes for Texas
which has overtaken New York as the 2nd-best economy
in the union. Wisconsin and Texas have created most of the new
jobs in America over the past few months. In a time of prolonged
economic downturn, Montana’s
economy has built a surplus in the State’s general fund, and
it has done so by buying goods and services wisely. North
Dakota’s economy is booming and its population is rising with
people searching for jobs. Californians
and New Yorkers are moving to Texas in droves. Let the State’s
competitively battle it out by attracting a skilled work force.
is one of the most business-unfriendly States that over-taxes
and over-regulates business and industry, particularly small business.
How long will Governor Jerry Brown (once called "Jerry-no-growth
Brown" in a former Governorship) wait before he realizes
his tax base of wealthy Californians has moved to Texas? Believe
me, competition will smack State politicians out of office who pander
to unions and special interests to gain votes with borrowed dollars
at the expense of growth in their economies.
