- This past Sunday night, Steve Croft of "60 Minutes"
exposed how U.S. Congressional critters cheat, lie and benefit from insider
trading on defense contracts. He cornered former Speaker of the House
Nancy Pelosi with her investments gained from her inside knowledge of multi-billion
- Pelosi boasts multi-millionaire status. She responded
that everything she had done as to investments was legal. In reality,
she cheated before a law could be passed to stop the cheating.
- For example, Tour de France bicyclists injected drugs
for years to win the coveted title while the ones that played by the rules
never had a chance at the victory podium. Once the cheating was deemed
illegal, the cheaters had to play by the rules and not inject performance
- In the same line, Croft interviewed a former U.S. senator
who had introduced a "Stock bill" law to stop Pelosi and dozens
if not hundreds of other congressional representatives from benefiting
from insider trading knowledge as to defense contracts. That senator could
only garner six other reps to sign on to the bill. It has languished in
committee ever since.
- In other words, the people elected to enforce our laws
become the people that break our laws or don't make laws to stop the cheating-in
order to benefit themselves.
- You wonder why we suffer 15 million unemployed while
that same Congress insources, outsources and offshores American jobs.
You may become distressed that 8 to 10 million illegal aliens work jobs
in America with impunity. You may wonder how come our middle class continues
vanishing right before our eyes.
- Thomas Jefferson hated Great Britain because the landed
gentry, the power elites-either by birth or class status, not talent, maintained
a stranglehold on the financial wealth of the empire. The royalty enjoyed
wealth by birthright, not by ability, education or personal effort. Even
today, Prince Charles has not worked a day in his life. His mother Queen
Elizabeth has not completed a single day of work to further her country's
well being. Prince William today walks around with his bride Kate on a
free taxpayer ride through life. He is the lucky recipient of the sperm
lottery and nothing more.
- The common man did not and does not stand a chance against
the power elite. Today, the power elite in Washington DC empower themselves
to enrich themselves at the expense of our republic.
- While Nancy Pelosi and her colleagues enrich themselves
with insider information on defense contract business deals, we suffer
15 million unemployed Americans, 45.2 million Americans subsisting on food
stamps, $12 billion in costs per month for endless wars, trade deficits
and a $14 trillion national debt. Has Barack Obama accomplished anything
to solve those problems? Answer: nothing in three years.
- How can the common man fight back? Jefferson and the
founding brothers gave us a method for dealing with gross incompetence
and gross greed.
- Vote the critters out of office in the next election! <http://www.Americanselect.org>www.Americanselect.org
