Still Report SR70 SOTU The REAL causes of America's problems

A great video about the evils of the Fed and how they control the politicians, the media and mainstream economists.

Why do so many Dems still support and offer up excuses for Obama's Fascist agenda?

http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/why-do-so-many-dems-cont...

A Dem supporter on Huffington Post commented completely incorrectly (and in wilful blind ignorance of ALL of the evidence and facts) stated that changing Obama's current policies would only command 25% electoral support.

My response :-

Being against stealing $2tn a year from the 99% and handing it out to the 0.1% does not command 25% support.

It commands EIGHTY PERCENT PLUS support.
It would command NINETY NINE PERCENT support if presented as such in the media.

Over 90% of the country would support moves to stop $2tn a year being stolen from the middle class and the poor.

Over 90% of the country would support moves to stop this stolen money being handed out to rich elites in the form of Corporate Welfare.

So why does Obama continue to advocate policies that are stealing $2tn a year from the 99% and giving it to large Corporations?

Why does he do the EXACT OPPOSITE and steal EVEN MORE by handing the middle class a huge $200bn a year tax hike and INSISTING that ALL of the Corporate Welfare was retained in the Fiscal Cliff deal?

Why does he INSIST on doing the EXACT OPPOSITE to that which is required to prevent a US deep recession and that which is required to create well paid American jobs?

How much would Obama's approval ratings TOTALLY SOAR if he started jailing senior bankers for 30 years for their multiple crimes?

How much would Obama's approval ratings TOTALLY SOAR if he cut Corporate Welfare and cut income taxes for the middle class & the working poor?

Blind faith and hope Dems need to wake up and smell the coffee.
Obama is not working for you - he is working for the financial elites and large Corporations.
EXACTLY the same as the GOP leaders.

Obama and GOP leaders have sham arguments over $20 or $30bn a year of taxes, spending and social welfare.
They BOTH AGREE that $2tn a year should continue to be stolen from the 99% and given to Oligarchs via Corporate Welfare and Federal Reserve handouts to large banks.

They also BOTH AGREE that ALL civil rights should be taken away from ordinary people and that rich elites should be above the Rule of Law whatever crimes they choose to commit.

ADDENDUM

What should be happening to get America out of it's current economic mess.

Immediate cuts of over $1tn a year in Corporate Welfare.
Immediately raise the personal income tax thresh hold from $8,700 to $45,000.
Stop the $1tn a year bailout to the big banks.
Break up the Corporate cartels that now operate in each major industry.
Reinstate the Rule of Law.
Jail senior bankers for 30+ years for their white collar crimes. Fine the big banks $200bn for the same.
Completely reform Corporation Tax. Current policy is strongly in favor of large multinationals and strongly against small businesses.

Are you trying to tell me that the measures outlined above would not garner 90%+ support from the electorate?

Are you trying to tell me that Obama's approval ratings would not ABSOLUTELY SOAR if he adopted these policies?

What needs to happen in more detail.

Immediate cuts of over $1tn a year in Corporate Welfare.
Corporate profits are at record levels.
It is VERY EASY to see how this can be done - here is a list of actions to take.
http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/it-is-very-easy-to-cut-1...

A COMPLETE REVERSAL of current policy to RAISE disposable incomes of ordinary people instead of seeing them continue to plummet.
I advocate raising the income tax thresh hold from $8,700 to $45,000 as a first measure.
That would cost $500bn a year.

Stop the Federal Reserve bailing out the big banks to the tune of $1tn a year.
Ordinary people will pay for ALL of these handouts eventually.
They have already starting paying in the shape of higher gas and food prices.
They will pay more in the future in the shape of higher levels of unemployment, higher levels of poverty and lower disposable incomes for over 99% of Americans.
http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/the-2tn-of-excess-bank-r...

Break up the Corporate cartels that now operate in each major industry.
Banks, oil, pharma, food, arms (hardware), arms (software), Media, Food, Monsanto etc. and soon to be Healthcare.
Immediately reinstate Glass Steagal for the banks.
Record Corporate profits are a symptom of a lack of competition in the market place.
INCREASE COMPETITION.

Reinstate the Rule of Law
The strength or otherwise of the Rule of Law is THE most important factor in determining future GDP growth rates.
The Rule of Law no longer applies to rich elites whatever white collar crimes they commit. Barack Obama has openly stated he will not prosecute the persons responsible.
Bernie Madoff got 102 years for stealing $8bn in his Ponzi scheme.
Several people have stolen far more than this from ordinary Americans.
I would prosecute and handout 30 years+ hard jail time to Lloyd Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, Hank Paulson, Tim Geithner and at least a couple of dozen of other senior bankers.
I would fine the big banks $200bn+ for their crimes.
It is easy to see how the 12 big banks that manipulated Libor could be fined an average of $10bn each.
Then there are the various mortgage frauds, massive and endemic money laundering and outright thefts (such as $1.5bn from MF Global segregated client accounts) etc.

Completely reform Corporation Tax.
Multinationals pay next to nothing while small and medium sized businesses pay 25% to 30%.
As a first step I advocate a flat tax of about 25% - no loopholes, no tax breaks whatsoever.
I would make the first $100,000 of profits TAX FREE as a huge tax break for small businesses.

The current practice of large Corporations diverting US generated profits to off shore tax havens to avoid Corporation Tax would be stopped - this alone would generate additional revenues of about $200bn a year.
(I would lower Corporation Tax later after a HUGE reduction of income taxes for middle earners and below.)
Small and medium businesses are the TRUE job and wealth creators - they are being discriminated against and suffering unfair competition because of current government policy.

Scrap Obamacare
It will be a huge burden on the middle class.
It is the equivalent of a 3.8% income tax hike - but the estimated costs are forever rising so it will no doubt turn out to be higher.
It will lower disposable incomes, lower the average standard and quality of Healthcare, raise price inflation of just about everything (businesses are already putting up prices to cover their increase in costs) and make seniors die off quicker.
Somebody has to pay to cover the currently uninsured, that someone will be the middle class.
Obamacare was specifically designed to make lots of profits for large Healthcare companies - that is why Romney is so much in favor of it.
http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/the-affordable-care-act-...

Stop the pointless wars that are only being pursued in order to increase the Corporate profits for the bankers, the arms companies and the big oil companies.
This would save about $800bn a year (some of which has been included in Corporate Welfare above).
Obama is now expanding the resource wars into Africa. Stop it.
Withdraw from the Middle East and leave them to it. If the Arabs and the Muslims want to fight amongst themselves - let them. Don't give them a unifying cause to fight against or attack or be enemies of America.

Restore civil rights for ordinary people.
ALL of the recent laws, EO's and measures listed in here should be immediately reversed.
http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/obamas-civil-rights-viol...

Stop the expansion of the Police state.
$10's of billions are now being spent each year in order to spy on every single American - including their bank account transactions.

Reverse the current policy of increasing petty regulations.
It is killing entrepreneurship and small businesses in this country.
Large businesses are better able to absorb and overcome the cost of government bureaucracy - they have economies of scale.
For small businesses, the obstacles placed in their way by the government often mean they never start up in the first place, let alone expand into the job creators of the future.

Restore the system that made America GREAT.
A system of friendly competition between relatively small political and economic units called States.
We now have a MONOPOLY system.
Governance is almost completely monopolized by the Federal government and the states retain very little power.
The Federal government now takes the vast majority of taxes - completely opposite to the system the Founders envisaged and the system that made America great in the first place.
There is now monopoly control of the money supply and market manipulation of interest rates by the privately owned Federal Reserve bank - for their owners profits and against the interests of all but a handful of Americans.
Competition is ALWAYS GOOD.
Monopolies are ALWAYS BAD - except for the monopolist.

http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/fiscal-cliff-deal-obamas...

I believe. I have a DREAM. I have a DREAM that America's problems will one day be widely recognized and thence be fixed.
I BELIEVE that one day the electorate will wake up from their torpor. I BELIEVE in America.
