Establishing martial law in the United States

How quick do you think the President would make this happen?

The John W. Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2006 (PL 109-364), “named for the longtime Armed Services Committee chairman from Virginia,” was signed October 17, 2006, by President George W. Bush. The Act “has a provocative provision called ‘Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies’,” the thrust of which “seems to be about giving the federal government a far stronger hand in coordinating responses to [Hurricane] Katrina-like disasters,” Jeff Stein, CQ National Security Editor wrote December 1, 2006.

“But on closer inspection, its language also alters the two-centuries-old Insurrection Act, which Congress passed in 1807 to limit the president’s power to deploy troops within the United States … ‘to suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy’,” Stein wrote.

“But the amended law takes the cuffs off” and “critics say it’s a formula for executive branch mischief,” Stein wrote, as “the new language adds ‘natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident’ to the list of conditions permitting the President to take over local authority — particularly ‘if domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order.'”

“One of the few to complain, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., warned that the measure virtually invites the White House to declare federal martial law. … It ‘subverts solid, longstanding posse comitatus statutes that limit the military’s involvement in law enforcement, thereby making it easier for the President to declare martial law,’ he said in remarks submitted to the Congressional Record on Sept. 29.” [1]

Executive Order 12919: “National Emergency”

Should President George W. Bush proclaim and put into effect Executive Order 12919, “the President would put the United States under total Martial Law and Military Dictatorship.” [2]

“The President need not wait for some emergency to occur, however. He can declare a National Emergency at any time, and freeze everything. Congress, and the States, are powerless to prevent such an Executive Dictatorship, as long as the President advises Congress in a timely matter.” [3]

 

Executive Authority

Executive Order 12656 “Assignment of Emergency Preparedness Responsibilities”, February 16, 2004 plus Executive Order 13074, Amendment to EO 12656, February 9, 1998.

“Executive Order Number 12656 appointed the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S. citizens and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and grant the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of U.S. air space and all ports of entry.” [4]

Executive Order 11921 “Adjusting Emergency Preparedness Assignments to Organizational and Functional Changes in Federal Departments and Agencies” allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) [stated as the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency] to “develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.” [5]

“FEMA’s powers were consolidated by President Jimmy Carter to incorporate: The National Security Act of 1947, which allows for the strategic relocation of industries, services, government and other essential economic activities, and to rationalize the requirements for manpower, resources and production facilities; The 1950 Defense Production Act, which gives the President sweeping powers over all aspects of the economy; The Act of August 29, 1916, which authorizes the Secretary of the Army, in time of war, to take possession of any transportation system for transporting troops, material, or any other purpose related to the emergency; and The International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which enables the President to seize the property of a foreign country or national. These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation in 1979.” [6]

For the first time in American history, the reigns of government would not be transferred from one elected element to another, but the Constitution, itself, can be suspended. [7]

Documents

FEMA the real reason for them?????????

Well I just received an email from my cousin about REX84 and he also told me to look at the site www.knowthelies.com. I did some of the leg work and posted some things here for you. Looks like our Government already has it planned out how to keep themselves in power.

There are over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft’s list.

The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.

Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.

The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.

Now let’s review the justification for any actions taken…

 

Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential pen:…

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 – allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 – allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 – allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 – allows the government to seize all means of transportation, including personal cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total control over all highways, seaports, and waterways.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10999 – allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 – allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 – allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 – designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 – allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 – allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 – allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 – specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 – grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 – assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 – allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA’s Civil Security Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA’s role as a “new frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis.”

FEMA’s powers were consolidated by President Carter to incorporate the…

National Security Act of 1947 – allows for the strategic relocation of industries, services, government and other essential economic activities, and to rationalize the requirements for manpower, resources and production facilities.

1950 Defense Production Act – gives the President sweeping powers over all aspects of the economy.

Act of August 29, 1916 – authorizes the Secretary of the Army, in time of war, to take possession of any transportation system for transporting troops, material, or any other purpose related to the emergency.

International Emergency Economic Powers Act – enables the President to seize the property of a foreign country or national. These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation in 1979.

 

 

Operation Garden Plot


The United States Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2

 

The following information was obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. The original printing was of June 1, 1984. The information herein is UNCLASSIFIED and does not come within the scope of directions governing the protection of information affecting the national security.

 

It took a little more than three years to obtain a full copy of Operation Garden Plot from the U.S. Government, and was done so under the freedom of information act for unclassified documents. The implications within the full context of this document should make the hair on the back of your head stand on end!!!!!

 

In this document signed by the Secretary of the Army, is hereby assigned as DOD Executive Agent for civil disturbance control operations. Under Plan 55-2 he is to use airlift and logistical support, in assisting appropriate military commanders in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and US possessions and territories, or any political subdivision thereof.

 

The official name of this project is called “Operation Garden Plot.”

 

Under this plan for the deployment of Operation Garden Plot, the use of CIDCON-1 will be mandatory. This direct support of civil disturbance control operations is to be used by the Army, USAF, Navy, and Marine Corp. with an airlift force to be comprised of MAC Organic Airlift Resources, airlift capable aircraft of all other USAF major commands, and all other aerial reconnaissance and Airborne Psychological Operations. This is to include control communications systems, aero medical evacuation, helicopter and Weather Support Systems.

 

If any civil disturbance by a resistance group, religious organization, or other persons considered to be non-conformist takes place, under Appendix 3 to Annex B of Plan 55-2 hereby gives all Federal forces total power over the situation if local and state authorities cannot put down said dissenters.

 

Annex A, section B of Operation Garden Plot defines tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and general anti-government dissenters as Disruptive Elements. This calls for the deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder.

 

Under section D, a Presidential Executive Order will authorize and direct the Secretary of Defense to use the Armed Forces of the United States to restore order.

 

2 TAB A APPENDIX 1 TO ANNEX S USAF CIVIL DISTURBANCE PLAN 55-2 EXHIBIT POR: SGH, JCS Pub 6, Vol 5, AFR 160-5 hereby provides for America’s military and the National Guard State Partnership Program to join with United Nations personal in said operations. This links selected U.S. National Guard units with the Defense Ministries of “Partnership For Peace.” This was done in an effort to provide military support to civil authorities in response to civil emergencies.

 

Under Presidential Decision Directive No. 25, this program serves to cement people to relationships between the citizens of the United States, and the global military of the UN establishments of the emerging democracies of Central and Eastern European countries. This puts all of our National Guardsmen under the direct jurisdiction of the United Nations.

 

Section 3:

This plan could be implemented under any of the following situation:

 

(1) Spontaneous civil disturbances which involve large numbers of persons and/or which continue for a considerable period of time, may exceed the capacity of local civil law enforcement agencies to suppress. Although this type of activity can arise without warning as a result of sudden, unanticipated popular unrest (past riots), it may also result from more prolonged dissidence.

 

This would most likely be an outgrowth of serious social, political or economic issues which divide segments of the American population. Such factionalism could manifest itself through repeated demonstrations, protest marches and other forms of legitimate opposition but which would have the potential for erupting into spontaneous violence with little or no warning.

 

(2) Planned acts of violence or civil disobedience which, through arising from the same causes as (1) above, are seized upon by a dedicated group of dissidents who plan and incite purposeful acts designed to disrupt social order.

 

This may occur either because leaders of protest organizations intentionally induce their followers to perpetrate violent acts, or because a group of militants infiltrates an otherwise peaceful protest and seeks to divert it from its peaceful course.

 

Subsection C: (2) Environmental satellite products will be continue to be available. (d) Responsibilities. Meteorological support to civil disturbance operations will be arranged or provided by AWS wings.

 

The 7th. Weather Wing (7WW) is responsible for providing / arranging support for Military Airlift Command (MAC) airlift operations. The 5th Weather Wing (5WW) is responsible for supporting the United States Army Forces Command.

 

(3) SITUATION. Civil disturbance may threaten or erupt at any time in the CONUS and grow to such proportions as to require the use the Federal military forces to bring the situation under control.

 

A flexible weather support system is required under control. A flexible weather support system is required to support the many and varied options of this Plan.

 

ANNEX H: XXOW, AWSR 55-2, AWSR 23-6, AFR 23-31, AR 115-10, AFR 105-3.

 

Subsection B:

 

Concept of Environmental Support. Environmental support will be provided by elements of Air Weather Service (AWS) in accordance with refs a-f. The senior staff meteorologist deployed int the Task Force Headquarters (TFH) will be the staff weather officer (SWO) to the TFH.

 

Centralized environmental support products are requested in accordance with AWSR 105-18. (4) Weather support is provided by weather units located at existing CONUS bases or by deployed SWOs and / or weather teams to the objective areas.

 

(5) Support MAC source will be provide in accordance with the procedures in MARC 103-15. MAC forces will be provided in accordance with the procedures in AFR 105-3.

 

(a) Air Force Global Weather Central: Provides centralized products as requested.

1. GENERAL Opposition forces or groups may attempt to gain knowledge of this plan and ‘use that knowledge to prevent or degrade the effectiveness of the actions outlined in this plan. In order to protect operations undertaken to accomplish the mission, it is necessary to control sources of information that can be exploited by those opposition forces or groups.

 

OPSEC is the effort to protect operations by identifying and controlling intelligence indicators susceptible to exploitation. The objective of OPSEC, in the execution of this plan, is to assure the security of operations, mission effectiveness, and increase the probability of mission success.

 

2. RESPONSIBILITY FOR OPERATIONS SECURITY (OPSEC):

 

The denial of information to an enemy is inherently a command responsibility. However, since the operations Officer at any level of command is responsible to his commander for the overall planning and execution of operations, he has the principal staff interest in assuring maximum protection of the operation and must assume primary responsibility instability for ensuring that the efforts of all other staff elements are coordinated toward this end. However, every other individual associated with, or aware of, the operation must assist in safeguarding the security of the operation.

 

3. OBJECTIVES:

 

a. The basic objective of OPSEC is to preserve the security of friendly forces and thereby to enhance the probability of successful mission accomplishment. “Security” in this context relates to the protection of friendly forces. It also includes the protection of operational information to prevent degradation of mission effectiveness through the disclosure of prior knowledge of friendly operations to the opposition.

 

b. OPSEC pervades the entire planning process and must be a matter of continuing concern from the conception of an operation, throughout the preparatory and execution phases, and during critiques, reports, press releases, and the like conducted during the post operation phase.

 

4. Specific operations orders and standard operating procedures “MUST be developed with the awareness that the opposition may be able to identify and exploit vulnerable activities.

Operation Cable Splicer

Operation Cable Splicer is a subprogram of the Rex 84 Program, which “was established on the reasoning that if a ‘mass exodus’ of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.”

Operation Cable Splicer is “the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.”

Government Gone Wild!!

Well there are the videos of girls gone wild, now there should be videos of Government gone wild. I can’t believe the direction it is heading in.

Why can’t they let the companies that screw up fail? If they can’t run the company then let them fail. Don’t ask me to help them. Are those companies willing to help me. NO!!!!!

 Now they want to give more money to AIG even after they gave money to people who have helped cripple the company. How much money will the Government give them?

 

Obama said he will not have and lobbyists in his administration. So how many are there now.  That is one of many lies from him.

Obama received 400 million from the union for his campaign. Now he has signed an executive order that the Government jobs are encouraged to go to the union. Did the President just take food and money out of the pockets of non-union workers? I guess you can buy a government official. Who says they don’t let big money change their votes or the laws they pass.

How many people will be allowed to be in charge of this countries laws that have broken them themselves? Shouldn’t they have to follow the same laws we normal people do?

Where is all the transparency in this administration?

I guess Obama doesn’t know what pork spending or special interests are. How many are getting pushed through the latest bills?

At some point we the people need to take back our nation and Government. We need to let them know that they work for us. That we the people are in charge. But to do that it will have to be all of us. Not just the small voice of just a few.

NAFTA (THIS IS A MUST READ!!!!!)

Has anyone really wondered how NAFTA works and how good it really is for us? I think the only people it benefits is everyone else. Check out the links below that shows China getting a super highway into the United States. I think soon China will own the United States. You know I don’t remember ANY of our elected officials asking if this was OK with us.

This first and second ones are a must read!!!!!!

The North American Union

There has been talk about America, Canada and Mexico becoming one Union like that of Europe. The American and Canadian dollar along with the Mexican peso would be phased out and be replaced with the Amero. There would be no need for any more immigration between the three countries because the borders would be open. That sounds like the end of America to me. Some people in the Government say that this is not going to happen. If there is talk about this will the American public have a VOTE on it?

Please check out the following links and decide for yourself what the faite of our nation is.

Superpowers: America vs. ancient Rome

I can not take credit for the below addition. I did copy this from  www.worldnetdaily.com. The article was written by Jerome Corsi. I have read else where that the comparison between America and Rome is close. Where are the Romans now? Perhaps our Government should take notice to this as well.

The ancient Romans were the only superpower of the world in their time, and today America is the preeminent world power. The ancient Romans also dominated commerce, as do we.

The comparison is a lofty thought. Should we use our power as we please? Invade countries at will? Confiscate their resources to suit our needs? Nationalize their oil to fuel our cars, without asking permission or begging forgiveness?

No. We must exercise our power responsibly, with appropriate restraint. Remember, civilization once before advanced to the point where ancient Rome had running water, yet we fell back – to the point where even ancient Rome in all its power and glory fell back into the depth and confusion of the Dark Ages. We, too, regardless how far we think we have advanced, could also fall back into darkness once again.

Imagine any major U.S. city without electricity for a prolonged period of time and you will quickly see a crisis beginning to emerge after as short a period of time as 48 hours. No American city is ready for the consequences of a suitcase nuclear bomb exploded within their metropolis.

How will we avoid the downfall that ancient Rome suffered?

The ancient Romans conquered in order to colonize. Make no mistake about it – in Christ’s time, Pontius Pilate was in Israel to govern a conquered land for the benefit of Romans back home. Those living in Israel were not citizens of Rome, nor did they share in the rights afforded to those who were Roman citizens. Ancient Rome’s interest was one-sided – to subdue internal unrest in conquered territories and to engage in commerce with the colonies designed to benefit primarily Rome itself.

The United States has always fought foreign wars with a different purpose in mind – to defend the national interests of the United States. Americans do not intend to establish colonies. This is why the goals of holding elections in Afghanistan and Iraq is so important. Our goal is and must be to establish independent regimes in these countries and leave.

American foreign policy can be reduced to two simple principles:

  1. The American people do not want to be blown up, and  
  2. Anything that prevents the American people from being blown up is OK.  

Fighting foreign wars for objectives other than these has always been problematic for Americans.

This was the rub on the Iraq debate – the American people believe fundamentally that Saddam Hussein was a threat to us at home. Forget that we didn’t find weapons of mass destruction. Saddam Hussein had given the world every reason to believe WMDs were there, and that was enough for the American people to feel threatened.

Ancient Romans may have thought differently. Does Iraq have oil we need? Then go conquer Iraq and confiscate the oil, the ancient Romans would have argued. When the radical left accused President Bush of having this as his secret agenda, the American public didn’t buy it. American presidents have never been able to sell to the American people wars of foreign conquest for the sole reason of the conquest itself. Why bother fighting the war, most American would reason, unless we are threatened at home? Even then, the decision to fight the war is always a hard sell.

Another difference is that Americans believe in limited government, the ancient Romans did not. Our founding fathers had a profound distrust of any national government that was too strong. Hence we have a balance of powers between the executive, legislative and executive. No branch of government should ever get so powerful as to proclaim itself divine or assume dictatorial powers, as ancient Roman emperors often did. American presidents, even presidents with expensive libraries commemorating their time in office, are comfortably considered far from being gods.

Moreover, though we separate church and state – as the ancient Romans did not – God still has an important place in the American republic. Separation of church and state has never meant that God needs to be wiped clean from our public consciousness. “In God We Trust,” is stamped on our coins, despite what the American Civil Liberties Union might insist. As long as God remains in the American public and as long as we do not adopt a state religion, Americans are free to believe as they choose. Americans embrace religious differences without requiring that God be eliminated from our public buildings, our national documents, our schools and our hearts.

Yes, we may well be the ancient Romans of the modern world, but with a difference. The United States of America remains, as Abraham Lincoln expressed, mankind’s last, best experiment with freedom in a nation where all men are considered equal, each endowed with God-bestowed inalienable rights. We have massive power, yet Americans understand restraint and respect for others. We appreciate freedom and we wish freedom to be enjoyed around the world, yet we do not demand that others subject themselves to us as conquering heroes.

These differences are important, especially if we are resolved to celebrate in 2076 yet another 100 years of our cherished liberties.

George Santayana wrote “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Bill HR 40

Bill HR 40 is a bill to look at Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. It is to “To acknowledge the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to examine the institution of slavery, subsequently de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.” This Bill is sponsored by Rep. John Conyers [D-MI].

Now let’s look at this a little. It states the United States 13 American colonies. Does this bill mean that only those 13 colonies are going to be held responsible? Why isn’t there anything in the Bill to look at the economic discrimination against the American Indians? Will the Bill have provisions put in that if it passes all minority scholarships be eliminated including the African-American Scholarship Fund? After all there is no fund set up for any other race. Will provisions be put in to eliminate the section on applications that ask what race a person is? Will there be provisions to stop forcing companies to hire or promote on the color of ones skin? Will there be provisions to look at the countless lives lost of the whites that fought to free the slaves?

The only true way to stop racism is for both sides to stop using it as a means to further ones career or for a better life. Racism is like a swinging door, it goes both ways.

Our New Government

Well our new President has taken office. Now let me say that I am that America has seen past the color barriers and elected it’s first African-American President.

One of the promises President Obama said was Lobbyists had no place in his cabinet. Our new President has already went against his promise and put a Lobbyist on his cabinet. What other promises will he break?

Our President has decided that the best person to be the next Treasury secretary is Timothy F. Geithner. How can the Government put a guy in charge that felt it was OK not to pay his taxes? Can the rest of the United States not pay it’s taxes and have the IRS wave it?

The first bank bailout was pushed through and left many questions unanswered. How did that work out for the average American? Now President Obama wants to do the same with another “stimulus package”. What questions will be unanswered with the next one? Shouldn’t the Government take a little more time decided on a “stimulus package” that is going to drive us further in debt? Can they look their kids and grandchildren in the eyes and say, yes this “stimulus package” will help this time?

America in Crisis

The below letter was written by me and sent to several Government officials. I am saddened to say that they are to busy to give a proper response.

In light of recent events and the actions that our Government has taken it seems that it is no longer the government for the people. It seems the Government is only looking after themselves and the rich.

 

What is the salary of an elected official after they are out of office? Where does that salary come from? Who decided on that salary? What concerns do they have about loosing the office that they hold?

 

What was the over all desire of the people on the recent bail out of Wall Street, GM and Chrysler? We did not want the bail out. It was their decision to let their companies fail. Why should we help them? Do they help the families that have lost their jobs when the factories closed and moved over seas? No they didn’t, they came in and kicked them out of their homes. Who helped the people who have lost money in the stock market? No one!  Is the Government going to give us all money to bail us out? I’ll answer that for you, no they won’t. Perhaps the people shouldn’t pay taxes anymore. What will be used to pay the rich then?

 

It seems that Government is getting to large and powerful with their hands in way to much. The Government is on its way to being closely related to Russia and old Germany. The Government is on its way to making the once most powerful nation in the World a 3rd world nation. Is that what it thinks the American people want? What will be left of America for our children?

 

The Government is telling us that the PLEDGE OF ALEGENCE is bad to say because it has the word GOD in it. Isn’t the PLEDGE OF ALEGENCE a part of America? Isn’t GOD a part of America? This is the land of opportunity and freedom. Yet we have to vote that English is the national language. We are too concerned about hurting someone beliefs. They can have their beliefs but don’t make us loose ours.

 

Why are we letting people stay here that are breaking the law? If they are not here legally there is only one solution, KICK THEM OUT. Let other nations know we will not stand for it any longer. If an American citizen breaks the law what happens to them? We go to jail. All need to OBEY the law. 

 

What will it take for the Government to actually listen to the American people? It is said that if people do not learn history they are doomed to repeat it. Do any of the World Wars ring a bell? How about something a little closer to home? Do you remember the Civil War or the Boston Tea Party?  

 

Signed,

A truly concerned AMERICAN citizen

Government Change????

We are being told that if we dislike our Government then all we need to do contact our representatives and express our concerns. Well I have sent emails to mine and others and all that is received is a prewritten email on the chosen topic. If our emails aren’t actually read and responded to then why even send any in?

How has our Government forgotten the goal of America? They are only focussed on one goal and that is there own. They only want to see how much money they can obtain to put in their own pockets by letting the American public to pay everything for them.

The only voice they hear are the voices of the Lobbyists. They have a deaf ear to the American public.
