Our party platform has three key philosophies compared to a traditional campaign agenda. First, we believe that the party system in Washington is broken. Second, we believe in a foundational return to the spiritual heritage of our country. Third, we believe it is time government act selfless and not selfish with the future of this country.
We have great passion to be part of a larger movement under God of real change in this country. Enjoy the site and let’s MOVE! Learn why all individuals who interviewed Todd of the York County GOP leadership committee endorsed Todd Watson for US Senate.
This site is designed to give you the information you need quickly while yet thorough enough to move the dialogue of the debate to “How” from “What”. “Todd’s Stances” has quick positional stances (read the bold if you have no time). Second, we have three Philosophies with quick excerpts to learn more about our beliefs. Finally, we thoroughly blog on any given topic to give those passionate about a subject details they can depend on. The details in these blogs gives you a roadmap to solving problems and details on specific views. You will rarely find disclosure of this level of detail as well as belief structures. Campaigns want to be general to appeal to the most voters. We fundamentally believe in giving specific guidance to move the debate forward and show we are serious about solving problems–not being popular.
Thanks for your support!

Rush Limbaugh Interview With Senator CruzCongrats Republicans!
This is a monumental day in GOP history when truth was spoken. The entire party was put on notice by one of their own on the floor of the United States Senate! I encourage you to watch the full speech by Senator Cruz and read the entire interview with Rush Limbaugh (even better). Send Senator Cruz a letter of encouragement on this issue. The establishment will rally against him for his comments.
Please watch and read. My personal commentary follows…..
Senator Cruz is spot on! He hit the nail on the head of why I left the Republican Party. Crony Capitalism and Corporate Control is consistently placed over Constitutional Liberty by the GOP party at the National level.
I do not believe in following bad leaders no matter what party they come from. Obama and McConnell are both poor leaders to follow. Both sides are consistently sold out to either a belief in corporate board room direction or government control. Most voters don’t realize Wall Street wins with either party under current leadership (Hint: You Lose). Corporate payoff and government debt both feed the treasuries on Wall Street.
We need neither institution to flourish AT THE COST of the individual or Constitution. We are overdue for a populist centered Constitutional movement!
Furthermore, welfare elimination should cut both ways. The opening paragraph of our Constitution calls for the government to Promote and not Provide the General Welfare. Republicans…this applies to corporations, not just those on endless social welfare. You can’t preach against handouts to people when handouts in the billions (See Senator Cruz’s comments) go to donors. Senator Cruz is the one GOP leader calling out that hypocritical approach. Refreshing!
This maybe the seed of a real Republican revival. True conservatism, True free markets, and a True Constitution may have a chance again with the GOP if he succeeds in influence. If you want the party to thrive GOP, ditch the lobbyists purchasing legislation at the cost of the taxpayer. Ditch the K-Street, so called, “Conservatives”.
Most importantly, we as Americans need to be about a reliable and defined Constitution. “Equality Before the Law” is the definition of “Justice”. Our Constitution calls the government to establish justice. Washington needs to create a level playing field in law (not income redistribution). Create equality (in opportunity) before the law. Ditch these favors that do not promote equality in the market and definitely do not promote the general welfare of the AMERICAN people the Constitution calls for.
Finally, I want to say I’m wrong. I was skeptical of Senator Cruz “Non-Establishment” base with his close family ties to Goldman Sachs (Wall Street Powerhouse for those not in the know). I think his bold statements answered much of my skepticism.
That speech on the Senate floor took real guts we have not seen in sometime. It is nice to see there may be more than just two establishment options to choose from in Washington. I think you are seeing a real populist flair evolve in Cruz, Trump and even Saunders if you are a Democrat.
I still question Senator Cruz’s endorsement of candidates who declared themselves to be “Team Players” with Senator McConnell, are tied to the Bush establishment, or meets with K-Street/Wall Street banking donors for substantial donations. Why Republicans add to the establishment base is beyond me when policies have so obviously eradicated the middle class and eroded the Constitution. Conservative works when it doesn’t play favoritism in law for donors.
In conclusion, I heard a bold Senator that understands there is a crisis of leadership on both sides of the aisle. Hats off to Senator Cruz. This could be a pivotal turning point for the party if they can rally behind his message to clean up their own shady dealings and purify their conduct that will give credence to self proclaimed declarations to advocate for liberty.

This girl is on point. Biblically she understands. She is courageous. She is smart. She is eloquent. Only 10% of Americans have any clue on how the banking system works. Of the 10% that understands what is going on…only 10% of that subset will speak out. 90% will accept the monetary system that is unconstitutional because the system benefits themselves or pays for their campaign. These individuals are in leadership in both parties, make up Nebraska’s national politicians, and our current President. Why most people fight over differences between parties, the absolute control of each NATIONAL political party is the same. They both are run by the Wall Street Banks.
The two party system is convenient on squabbles over differing issues as long as it does not affect the one overarching power structure (Banking System) that runs the world.
“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from its profits or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.”
– Rothschild’s Brothers of London 1963 (Owners of the First Banking System)
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws” — Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild (Owner of Banking System)
When you understand our politicians and our business leaders are so interested in profits (The Richest) and are dependent on the favors (the politicians who benefit from the banking campaign money), you understand why we have lost bold American leadership and substituted it with party politicians who receive their position with party line approval of pulling donor, not people interest.
When you understand the system oppresses the poor (warning – Isiah 10:1) and you study over Matthew 21 like Victoria did–you easily see the injustice that is happening to God’s creation. Worse yet, you see your participatory involvement in hurting the economy, hurting the lives of the working poor, and destroying the value of hard work by valuing capital disproportinately to labor.
The vast majority of “Free Market” people of the Republican Party and the few advocates in the Democratic party don’t have a clue what a true constitutional free market would actually look like. They don’t have the knowledge in the first place of a historical system that created the most glorious economic expansion the world has ever seen. Like today, the Constitutional system still rewarded ingenuity with great wealth. However, a Constitutional system will move up the average American as opposed to leaving them behind. The masses used to be the sources of debt and capital. Today, that debt is fiat money created by Wall Street.
We created true wealth then. Today, we are focused on Wall Street wealth created by financing games. The national debt created for so called “benefit” wipe out REAL economic gains. The taxes people complain about would be solved with Constitutional banking. The lack of business growth would be understood. The minimum wage problem would be fixed. Inflation would be controllable. Most importantly, Americans lives would improve with real standard of living increases without massaged inflation numbers that are making people poorer.
We continue to ignore our founder’s advice! Worse yet, we ignore Biblical accuracy in the name of a health and wealth cultural Christian narrative that is misguided while operating under a corrupt Wall Street banking system. Jesus would kick them out of the temple then. We should kick them out of government now.
We have people smiling and nodding, prideful in wanting to be viewed as successful. Some people are successful (at what cost for using debt to build their empire?), but we have massive amounts of people struggling. Hello Fascism.
However, It is the oppressed own’s fault. Many of their representatives fight for reallocation and not Constitutional restoration. Many don’t even speak, much less vote.
We have a body that perishes for a lack of knowledge over what a real constitutional marketplace would look like. We have a body that doesn’t vote because they walk around uninterested in civics (maybe because they subconsciously know they are not in control). We suffer from people who can only react to what they see as opposed to seek what is possible.
We have become a Biblical and Constitutional illiterate society.
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
– Thomas Jefferson
We have an electorate easily fooled by campaigns with large money from these organizations to buy their victory. The people will continue to suffer and it is their own fault. They are kept too busy (by design) to keep up with accurate civic information. Their passiveness in areas of Constitutional understanding, family leadership, religious responsibility, etc. continues to enslave their legacy.
However, this piece is about this amazing girl. This is a modern day Joan of Arc with the ability to free her people from the modern day institutions of power. She is in the 10% that knows the truth. She is in the 1% that has the courage to speak. She is in the .1% to have the truth, courage, and ability to speak. She is one incredible girl in the eyes of God because she has the truth, the courage, the ability, the eloquence, and she is only 12!
God Bless you Victoria! May you wake up Canadians! America needs your message too! It is great to see the next generation step up to solve the problems the previous generations allowed for the sake of selfish ambition. It is amazing you posess the truth that is not presented by any main stream party leaders.
May leaders rise where Constitutional truth is restored from both parties dependent on the campaign money the banks create at the cost of the well-being of the citizen. It is the disgrace of the last 100 years of American politics. Our lives are being controlled more by money then government. They are meant to be controlled by neither. Get educated. Be brave. Demand our Constitution back. Reject national parties paid for by those benefiting from altering our Constitution and controlling our politicians for the sake of themselves at the cost of our great people and country. Please Like, Share, and Re-post. People need to be educated, possess courage, and think for themselves before things change.

(Welcome to my blog for the week. If you can support my work with a donation for advertising the material–I would appreciate it. You can write me at email@example.com Please like my social media pages! Please send me your e-mail and we will get you on the next e-mail blog. I do not share e-mail addresses with anyone. They are solely used for my purposes in sharing thoughts on our great country)
Part I: The people continue to elect leaders who cannot govern
Part II: The fight between the fascist and socialist healthcare parties
An Educated Citizen Speaks Up for the People
One of the great citizens of Nebraska who voted for me relayed this sheet she obtained (see picture above that was sent to me–it’s small–I summarize the biggest points below) outlining the government contributions and signups to cooperatives (“Co-Ops”) across the country. She is a champion for private enterprise and has a heart for the well-being of the people. She wants people to wake up and know what is going on at the government level in healthcare insurance. In this case she highlights the Co-Ops around the country and the situation with CoOportunity that just failed in Iowa and Nebraska. I like her. She thinks. She doesn’t take her cues from either Fox News or CNN on how to think. She can process for herself. Good material like this is often beyond comprehension or investigative reach of Nebraska reporting news media outlets like the World Herald or Journal Star. She thought we could bring some investigative journalism and light into the fold to educate the citizen who seeks solid information outside the paid for main stream media. We are happy to pass on your great piece!
At a mile high view you can see the government could not allocate a dollar much less $2.5 billion to Co-Ops fairly if they wanted to. When you analyze the sheet you realize how inept the government allocates money (ignore how you feel about the healthcare policy for now). CoOportunity health was funded with $145 million ($2.5 billion was given to various Co-Ops) and had an enrollment of 114,000. All the Co-Op sign ups around the country garnered 549,000 members combined. What this means is that CoOportunity Health had 20.8% of the enrollment numbers of all co-ops but only received 5.8% of the funds allocated. This breaks down to $1,275 of support for each CoOportunity member. This is a small cushion of reserves to start a health care insurance fund.
Compare these numbers to the Co-Op in Connecticut (It’s nice when you are in the Wall Street District of Hedge Funds and large donors). HealthyCT (Connecticut) received $180 million for 6,094 members that signed up. This breaks down to $29,537 of capital backup per member. They had 1.1% of those enrolled in Co-Ops but received 7.2% of the Co-Op funding.
Chicago is another political Co-Op power play and takes care of Obama’s old stomping ground. Land of Lincoln Health was given over $160 million for 3,428 sign ups. They received $47,720 per member sign up. Did anyone even pay a premium with that subsidy? Ever think about a reallocation D.C.?
Reallocation would make too much sense but would also mean the demise of the Republican’s plan for a failure like CoOportunity to show the failure of the system. At the same time, this doesn’t excuse Co-Opportunity for poor pricing from the start. Regardless, few new insurance providers are prepared with few actuarial numbers on what preexisting conditions would do to a plan.
What do you think makes a better backstop for an insurance company that needs reserves? $48,000 per member in Illinois, $30,000 in Connecticut, or $1,200 in Iowa and Nebraska? Where are our federal reps in Iowa and Nebraska making sure a proper allocation was written into law for their citizens (too busy smoozing lobbyists–including established insurance companies– for contributions)? They set up 120,000 people, their businesses, and their reps for an insurance earthquake that distracted 120,000 away from work productivity. They led 120,000 into a frenzy of worry, anticipation, and additional work to transfer plans. Of course 95% of the 120k probably voted for these two parties. Congratulations 120,000 – Ce la vie. Not only did you get what you pay for. You got what you voted for too.
These are your leaders you continue to elect America. I don’t know about you but my 1st grader could allocate better then these bureaucrats in Washington. Poor reserves is one of the five main pillars of the CoOportunity financial failure. Poor pricing, unknown costs of preexisting conditions, low deductibles, and out of control inflation to take care of special interests supposed “Costs” are the other four.
If you cannot do the math you may want to go work in DC. They hire people who are unable to do a basic allocation formula and fail in basic 1 minus 2 calculations. If you can count backwards to minus $70 trillion you are on the fast track to Sr. Management at the Fed. Furthermore, they follow it up with lawyers who write laws that cannot do basic allocation of funds based on use. I feel bad for our people but I don’t. We get what we deserve by continuing to construct a government with two basic parties who have not been able to count the last 35 years. I still weep at some of the pain our people go through. Unfortunately, they sew their own seeds with their civic or lack thereof conduct.
Our people are still out of their mind to think these national parties represent us, much less will change and fix things. If you think people who create $70 trillion in the hole can do basic monetary allocations–you may want to rethink your logic. The people continue to reap what they sew with promoting these parties. There are bright stars in these parties. However, those sitting on top and in control of the party— well—they are not. They maybe bright but the heart motivations are for power and get the answers wrong most of the time. Unfortunately, they control their party members who don’t have the confidence to stand apart from the crowd and need the purse strings and party approval from the top for their ad campaign, power, and emotional approval.
Premium Pricing Problems
The second problem in the formula is the premiums. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you charge dramatically less than competitors with good actuarial numbers, cut the deductible in half, expand the coverage, and add in preexisting conditions that the insurance pool is not going to fare so well. Basic math says that will not work. Of course the Democrats have never understood basic math in healthcare. Obamacare was suppose to be “Affordable”– double premiums anyone?
Don’t worry Dems, the Republicans have not understood basic math and discipline in paying for a world wide police force. Don’t worry Dems or Republicans, the electorate is not without blame. They don’t look for people who count. They watch the TV to determine who they like better and take action based on who the TV tells them they should be afraid of more. Counting is not even a skill consideration when people vote. Whoever can make the one side fear the other side the most still works. Fear trumps old concepts like character evaluation, skill set, and listening to the constituent over the money. Don’t worry party members–many don’t vote. They believe in giving up on their civic duty or that they will not make a difference in government (sadly they are partly true–see previous posts). I digress…..
Overall, people were happy with the service CoOportunity provided. The coverage was good. However, premiums did not cover the out of control costs in today’s healthcare world. Friends, cost is the problem and neither the Fascist party (GOP) pulling legislation for the hospitals, AMA, pharmaceuticals, and Doctors OR the Socialist party (Dems) who believe in archaic concepts like price-controls and utopia of free healthcare for all will work in America. We already have Medicare which is a Socialist system and it is bankrupt. This is an everlasting burden on our kids. We don’t need more evidence that Obamacare should not be retained. Granted Socialism works in Sweeden, but let’s respect other cultures and realize this system runs against the culture of our country and more importantly violates the intent of “Promote” (Not Provide) the General Welfare in our Constitution that every Senator supposedly took an oath to defend.
We need the Constitution to guide us again at a time when neither of these current parties existed. Neither party is advocating true free markets. That is what we need. Make no mistake we have not had free markets and competition in healthcare. Republicans need to wake up to quit protectionism and price setting for their large donors in the healthcare industry. If they want to price set they can focus on Doctors, Hospitals, and Drug Companies setting their prices on their website. That would be nice “Price Setting”. Socialism is more of a backlash to this Fascism system that was created by the GOP in the first place. It is sad to hear Democrats say private healthcare doesn’t work. If only they knew they are not experiencing private care. They are experiencing Fascist dictated care.
All sides are culpable in the out of control healthcare situation. (Watch my debate with fellow 2014 Senate Candidate Dave Domina on this topic in Northeast Nebraska on my Youtube channel). The Constitution can lead us back.
The ACA is not socialism. The ACA is a Socialist/Fascist System
I’m going to blog more next week on the 60 minutes special on Healthcare that recently aired. It was one of the better journalistic attempts at what is really going on in healthcare. Most conservatives believe they are fighting for private healthcare if they beat Obamacare. This isn’t true. They are going to end up fighting for Fascist healthcare care where the hospitals, insurance companies, pharmaceuticals and Doctors (Doctors are the small one in that pie) keep their part of the pie at the continued cost to the taxpayer. Of course it is the citizen who still elects the candidates on commercials those entities buy. We need true Patriots to step up and put down both attempts at Socialism and Fascism that are failing the people. Both systems should be feared because both are failing the American people who often fail themselves at the booth and the treadmill.
Granted many of the local health care professionals will be private but most have tie-in’s to the hospitals, peddle big pharmaceuticals, and live off insurance companies which run public policy AND REVENUE at the top. Not all Doctors are winners in this game but those on top of the pyramid structure usually are. Those that support the system that feeds the top usually do well.
The only worse thing then Socialism in healthcare for America is an attempt at a combination of Socialism/Fascism (the real Obamacare). Socialism would be better than a combo of the two. Private Markets beat both hands down. For the record, we have not had free markets since the 60’s in healthcare.
The government bureaucrats win, the providers win, but the taxpayer takes a massive hit in either of these non-free market systems. The next 10-15% of the American population to fall from the being able to provide for themselves just happened. Another 15% has been happening for some time (even pre-Obama) because the healthcare industry and government has consumed more of the economy (through a non-competitive marketplace) from the people. Constant GDP allocations to each segment are good targets but graphs of healthcare and government consumption show the ever increasing dominant consumption of wages. This has to change. Growing the pie is part of that equation for workers. However, cost controls that competitive markets create should be our first step. Don’t listen to their speeches on free markets or choice–watch their votes and actions towards Socialism and/or Special Interest Control.
Finally, the average American needs to get off their duff and get in shape (I’m in that boat and working at it–so don’t take offense). Not “all” the problem is healthcare. Like voting, a lack of citizen engagement in health is bogging down the individual. After all, who has time for voting, exercise, or parenting when making a buck, watching TV, and having fun consumes one’s time?
I think Co-Opportunity is the first domino to fall in the “Co-Ops” and ultimately the ACA.
In the latest government bailout passed jointly by Obama AND 100% Senate Republicans, they put the citizen back on the hook for Wall Street risky decisions (FDIC insurance for their very dangerous bets), eliminated legislation to reengage derivatives that can take down the economy (you bailed this out in 2007 America), and recreated 3% down home mortgages (of which I warned you) which took bail out money to fix the last time, and more bank goodies that will continue to hurts the American worker whose purchasing power has been eroded by quantitative easing. Fighting stagnate wages with more healthcare premiums is already bad enough!
Die hard Republicans who think this is good policy to stimulate housing should study commercial reserve lending legislation passed at the same time. They raised commercial reserves to make it harder to buy commercial real estate. Why Lower Housing Reserves and Raise Commercial Reserves?
Commercial institutions own the Federal Reserve–literally. They also own commercial real estate but do not own houses (they just own the mortgages). They reduced competition and expansion in Commercial but created expansion in Housing and Mortgages. They are going to put you the taxpayer on the hook again if 3% equity fails the next house price swing. When private companies do not have to pay for the “Moral Hazard” they created–they will do it again. Obama and the GOP are reauthorizing it. See Florida/Arizona/Las Vegas 2005-2007. Get educated on the stockholders (Wall St) of the Federal Reserve and learn they work for themselves and do not represent the American people. Yes there are good staff members at the Fed. However, don’t ever forget the banks own the Fed and they have a small board (the staff reports to this board) that meets in private with no public visitation. Most of the staff and all of the American citizens have no clue what is discussed in that room.
We need a Constitutional Recovery to get our monetary system back. We need to get our people back to an honest economy where hard work advances with dependable purchasing power for the hard work.
How does this “Fed Talk” relate to healthcare Todd?
Guess what the legislators who helped out Wall Street didn’t do for CoOportunity and the 120,000 members in the same bill that passed in December?
They didn’t fund the money to get Co-Opportunity additional funds they were anticipating. Consequently, 120,000 lost their non Wall Street provider in health insurance. However, Wall Street got what they needed for the insurance providers and the banks who are really in control of this government. Welcome to America. Citizen needs take a back seat to Wall Street needs.
It just perturbs me what Conservative Republicans do to the label “Conservative”. It even bothers me more when they talk “Constitution” but don’t even understand the “Constitutional” framework of the monetary system that runs more of our lives then the government does. All the other good things will be attacked with “Conservative” when you continue to pull for a Wall Street THAT WILL FAIL US. Learn your ideology Republicans. The legal and actual owners of the Central Bank (The Federal Reserve) is Wall Street. It is not a Federal Institution America–Its owned by Wall Street Stockholders.
A Central Bank is Key Plank #5 to Communism (#5–Read Marx–Google it). If you are an Independent and you get yelled at for talking to Socialists (Democrats)–just tell them you would rather talk to proponents of Socialism then those who advocate for planks of Communism –the GOP–Wall Street–the owners of The American Central Bank–The Federal Reserve. Wall Street calls the shots of the GOP and a significant portion of the Democrats. This is the #1 reason they don’t represent the citizens over the corporations. Their power is really held by these corporations because they respond to the money (power) and not the people.
Most people will have a deer in a headlights look because they don’t know a Central Bank is a key component to Communism. Most DO know that the GOP is tied to Wall Street. Most Don’t know Wall Street literally owns the Federal Reserve. Most don’t know the Federal Reserve is not a government branch. Watch the light bulb turn on after explaining to them the facts. Some start to change and ask questions. Some pass and give a statement, “That is just the way it is”. Let them say that to God in their prayers a few times and ask them to get back to you. Have them visualizing God knocking over the money changing tables in a fury. Give them a WWJD bracelet and then love on them. It takes time for others. Central Banks are pillars to Communism and is enough of a reason of why this system should be rejected.
There are some Republicans who do understand the dangers of Wall Street. My contributions as well as others carrying the flag on education are starting to open eyes. Some Republicans disagree with Wall Street but still support the party. They still believe hope is in the “Change” of the party. It reminds me of the women abused for decades who think their man is going to change “the next time” regardless of a 35 year track record. I hope they are right and I’m wrong (Deep Down I think I’m right). I’m just happy my conscious is not compromised to either at the current time.
The seeds of 2007 were just replanted in the latest federal extension in December (Ironically just after I warned you before the election). The GOP and Obama will be responsible for the next Wall Street collapse caused by these planted seeds. Most will scream at the government or other people during the next collapse. I’m going to look squarely in the eye of those who voted these parties. Most just need to look in the mirror since they support a government control or corporate control backed party. Most of these same people are extremely controlled by their pocketbooks. God tends to mock the gods that fail people by highlighting their failure. I think its coming in our monetary system and its not going to be funny when the money god of America is mocked by the real God.
Citizens should be supporting a citizen backed politician sooner rather than later. They are going to have to look for them. Socialism and Fascism control the media in their ideologies. They have achieved that (especially the larger media outlets) and the citizen is only going to find a citizen candidate through research or in a true “Free Press” which doesn’t exist under Fascism or Socialism.
The reality is your lives were not meant to be run by government or money. When both parties are controlled by the same money and manipulate each side with fear of the “Other” side — they keep us in a battle that doesn’t attack the problem. If Citizens just played with the concept that the fight with the other side is by design to keep your eyes off the agenda of the large money–it may open your eyes. There are big differences on many of the “Value” fronts but the very top know money is power. As long as we fight against each other on issues not related to “money” then they will retain the power.
Both die hard liberals and conservatives should try to solve why Obama and the Republicans walked in lock step on the latest federal budget extension? Follow the campaign money and get back to me. You may learn the money and not the party will get their way. Furthermore, when Tea Party advocates who truly understand the Constitution and Die Hard Liberals join hands to stop Wall Street provisions in the latest government extension–you can see why we have more to be united on then divided. The majority just do not understand the monetary system. They do not understand why it is the problem to help income inequality and stimulate the economy. Predominantly many do not know how it violates the Constitution at the same time.
Your enemy is not your American neighbor. Most likely your neighbor needs education to believe in the Constitution again. Most have not even read the Constitution. Quit fighting and look at the power on top. You could easily spend a week on the document and just scratch the surface (I’m still learning) of the true intent of our founders. Try spending two hours. Read a discourse on just 1 item. It will change your perspective.
Cost Remains the Problem in Healthcare
A focus on costs and building competitive markets so healthcare becomes more affordable is where we need to go. A reformation of Medicare and Social Security that doesn’t leave people out to dry but ultimately can go away in 75 years should be our goal. Trusting in government or corporations to take care of us will fail. Social Security/Medicare is Socialism and it is a financial failure with costs dictated by Fascists on top that prosper with an out of control inflation curve. Americans did better pre-1960’s on a GDP basis. Our healthcare has advanced dramatically, but it has outpaced progress in other important areas of American life. We must learn from history and slowly reverse financial course. We need dramatic adjustments to start the process. If Senator Fischer or Senator Sasse will honor their pledge and make the first step to work towards solvency of Medicare–their terms would be a success for taking on the biggest financial problem of our day. Although this pledge has been recited for years by endless GOP candidates with no action–I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt for their term. I will hold them accountable if they don’t take it on as they pledged. I don’t even care if their bill passes. I will be shocked to see it presented due to “Team Player” attitude in the party and knowing the course of these leaders “Actions” for some time. Of course the electorate knows their actions too and have been hoping it will be different the last 30 years. I hope I’m wrong–I really do. I want to see the guts to propose and fight for the legislation for the sake of our kids and liberty of this country for generations to come. Ignoring the problem is not an answer.
With regards to CoOportunity we can see the harm in losing competition in the marketplace. In December, renewals were taking place and Blue Cross/Coventry/United treated CoOportunity like a competitor. Quoted premiums for a family Gold plan were around $1,400. After the Department of Insurance announced people should move to a new provider–companies had to rebid. Overnight the premiums for healthcare went up to $1,700 for the same plan. Nothing changed but a lack of competition overnight. The consumer lost.
Competition matters. Republicans will celebrate the failure of the plan. That is fine. Where is your solution? In a day where the largest mature industries are huge and can destroy small entrants easier–we need to solve capitalization and anti-trust hurdles. What is your plan to create more competitors in the marketplace Republicans? What is your plan to create a competitor with significant reserves needed to challenge these Big Boys who can raise prices 20% overnight with less competition? Why is an exchange a bad idea that offers individuals choice? Marketplaces with more competition and choice is what we need. Start-ups to sell chicken on the corner is one thing. Start-ups to offer health insurance with AAA rating reserves as a backdrop is another.
Don’t Trust Lobbies or Government With Healthcare
The government and the big lobbies in healthcare are not the taxpayers and citizens friends. However, we have an electorate that still buys the messages they buy on TV. They are going to have to become more savvy and think of a third option rooted in Constitutional history.
Thank You to Those in Healthcare Who Were Blessed With the Gift of Healing And Help People.
As a last point–I’m thankful for my Doctors and healthcare providers. I’m truly blessed to have great people who God truly gave the gift of healing. They work tirelessly to use their God Given abilities to improve lives. I love the service but frankly a $25,000 bill for a normal birth (a life process that has happened since the beginning of time) of my 4th child was the only part that didn’t give me a warm glow. It got me motivated to fight on. Life is a basic building block and philosophy of mine. We need more life. 25k hospital bills for a routine life process does not incent LIFE to happen. Our birth rate is at a dangerous level in this country (learn from the mistakes of Europe). $25k birthing bills is part of that problem.
I choose to think of the great Nurses and Doctors that gave us great care. My family has been touched by many of these providers. I would be remised to categorize all in this ‘greed’ boat (especially Nurses). Most are good providers. However, most of the “Good” do not have the courage to speak truth to the system hanging over them. Frankly many don’t even try to understand it. They are programmed to live under current conditions and never question the conditions they live under. Many of these providers deep down care for their patients. If they really care in a holistic approach–fight the powers obstructing healthcare (lobbies and government). Help create a system that truly serves the people in a solvent matter.
I want to continue to implore these individuals on the inside to raise a voice at these ivory towers (biz) and government (easily done for Nebraskans) for JUST change . Healthcare needs to find a balance in American life again with the patient economically prospering when they take accountability for their own health and are responsible in obtaining and paying for reasonable healthcare. Those who think this system is or was Capitalism needs to wake up. Socialist countries manage healthcare costs in the low teens of GDP. Our country is heading to over 20% of GDP. Socialism rarely beats capitalism in cost. In healthcare the Socialists are DESTROYING the American Capitalists in cost to the consumer. This is probably the best proof that our system is not Capitalistic but Socialistic (Medicare)/Fascist (The Rest of the System). This was easily the case before “Obamacare” as well. No one would be running to Socialism or proposing Obamacare if our medical GDP was less than Socialist countries–we could afford it at this rate. If I’m speaking to conservatives I tell them eliminating Obamacare doesn’t even come close to solving the problem. Standing up to your lobbying firms that feed your campaigns are. We would need both to go to achieve low costs again.
If you win the healthcare fight Republicans you better get to work real quick on competition to get our costs inline. The US needs to beat Socialist country GDP percentages of healthcare consumption to prove you are right. We are not here to pay for R&D for the rest of the world to meet the Globalist agenda. Frankly, the Socialists have a better argument then the so called “Capitalists” in providing cheaper healthcare. We were well in excess of 140% in costs of GDP of Socialist countries before Obamacare was on the radar. This is unacceptable.
I don’t run out the door when I talk to Socialists. They have some ideas. If you can achieve better healthcare stats at 66% of the American costs–I’m going to listen–regardless of what government system you participate in. I don’t believe in the ideology myself but frankly Fascism can be much worse. If the Republicans want to really beat Socialism they can clean up their own party first and stand for a true free market. Fascism doesn’t have a chance at beating Socialism in healthcare costs. True free markets is the only chance to beat a solid Socialist healthcare plan.
Citizens have a responsibility too. We should aim to improve our health on our own to those in Socialist countries. Quit worrying about the money the Fascists want you to make to flow up hill. Get outside and exercise. Your family needs your long term presence in old age more than a corporate fat cat needs the money you can make for the system tomorrow.
As a last disclaimer, I received more then a few comments for supporting pre-existing conditions. I still support this clause. I don’t think markets solve pre-existing conditions and they need a solution. I think they are best served in their own ‘High Risk Pool’ where they pay a rate on par with most Americans with a highly subsidized contribution from the government. We need a dedicated focus on those with pre-existing conditions to ensure they have the service they need but are not given a free pass to be unhealthy in other areas. “Born With” conditions have my greatest sympathy because no one picks their condition at birth. Insurance companies do not work for pre-existing conditions and we just discourage hard work in the private sector with these outrageous new premiums to workers to bare the cost of pre-existing coverage.
Second, many of these people criticizing my attempt at pre-existing conditions are Die Hard “World Free Market” Republicans who take exception to my policy. I’m not a global free market guy but a United States Free market guy.
I like to challenge the global free market guys (90% Republican). If your party is so free market–why doesn’t your party allow medicine to be bought from around the globe where it is often one-half to a third of the price in this market? These products are like commodities based on modern day packaging and tampering laws. There is no good reason the rest of the World can obtain these drugs at half to a third of the price as Americans pay. Let free trade reign in purchasing drugs for health around the world if that is your mantra. That can help people receive what they need for less.
Free markets don’t exist in this country for healthcare. (PS–Did you know an MRI can be $2,500 in Lincoln but $700 in Kearney?) Many will drive to Omaha for cheaper airfare–why not Kearney for an MRI? Healthcare can be cheaper when we make educated purchases. It is time for printed prices! Have no fear Doctors. Americans will pay more for good service!
Fascism dictates what markets are free and which are closed. May domestic competition thrive again for the sake of America. Have a good weekend! Todd. Please “Share” on your pages to expand the readership. We need your support!
Upcoming Public Speeches
I will be speaking this week on the 29th to CMBC in Lincoln. I will be giving a speech on business and my personal testimony. We are going to keep the focus on God and business. I will not overly focus on politics, but will talk about my experience in this election. You are cordially invited to listen and I’d be happy to dialogue with you after the event. Write for Details.
Upcoming Blog Topics and Previews:
Oil: Quit thinking Boom and Bust. This is Socialism/Fascism. Think Collection of Supply Then Running Up The Price. Prices are manipulated by governments; not markets. We are making ourselves dependent on Foreign Oil Again! We will also explore the obvious “Cartel” in oil and laugh at how we don’t see what the world sees; The American “Cartel” on interest rates.
The Latest Federal Budget Extension: Planting the seeds that destroyed the economy in 2007. The 7 year cycle warning I gave in 2014 is coming to fruition.
Our Souls Desire a Master: Some choose God. Some choose Government. Some choose Work. Some choose Money. All people have faith. It is what people put their faith into that determines their beliefs and actions. Fascism is often the result of those with belief in self or money and not God (Think Hitler and Big Money Germany in 40’s). Socialism or Communism is often the culture of those who believe in the state and not God. Our Constitution was designed with an emphasis on a belief in the Individual Under God. Varying beliefs often dictate the government they choose to believe in. We will explore these concepts and will tread lightly without making 100% overarching assumptions (like all conservatives are Republicans–enough already 😉 ).
October 11, 2014
We would welcome you with open arms to the Independent Conservative movement! Our following is dedicated to ‘right’ over ‘popular’ for power. Caleb and Joshua (Numbers 13) is the inspiration of many of our followers. We understand the danger of compromising ‘right’ to ‘win’. Most Republicans have not figured that out yet. It sounds like you are taking a stand with your principled approach. We took this stand several years ago. Many don’t understand Independent is not in the middle. What Independent does mean is that your voice is not controlled by a party (see definition). You listen to the arguments and make your own decision. Parties do not make the decision for you. It is a very freeing club to be in. You own your identity and can keep your views pure in front of God as opposed to compromised for power.
Mike, you are discovering what many of us knew long ago. Leadership is lost in the National Republican party. Many of us do not believe in compromising to a lesser evil to win, but standing for right (Ten Commandments being a strong basis to build from) regardless of popularity. They are about power and not principles anymore. Nebraska’s Republican candidate pledged to be a “Team Player” on election night. Mike, you know how dangerous this compromise to the power of the party is on a national level. The result of your election speaks to treasuring the candidate with the money over principled values more than any other at the GOP level. Contributing to their power is not much better than contributing to Democrats for power. There are very few Republicans who will not compromise principles to obtain power. You are one of the remaining few.
The others are still blind to the corruption. They need to review Caleb and Joshua and understand proper conduct for a believer who still proclaims this is “One Nation Under God”. A relative statement of better than Democrat is lame. Furthermore, we have forgotten the teaching of when good people compromise to poor leadership or principles. How dangerous this is to the group. People mistakenly pick people but ignore partnerships. Partnerships in the Bible teach us the upside and downside when we compromise principles in our teams. We have forgotten that lesson. We will still have to compromise on legislation but “pledges” of support and “oaths” bind and must be approached with caution. If only the people writing the checks and promoting the GOP candidates knew the complete platfrom (I’m sure this is read like the Constitution is read these days) they are supporting. Let me add some fuel to your fire and hopefully bring you over to our side.
George Bush (my leader when I was a Republican) said Christians and Muslims all pray to the same God. Sounds like great leadership to follow! I wonder if our Lion’s Den or Fiery Furnace warriors were given the, “He had to say that” excuse.
We can talk about Gay Marriage but how about Pro-Life? This is a dominant issue for most believers. Mitt Romney was pro-choice his entire life but suddenly “switched” to Pro-Life for the Presidency. You know the genuineness of that belief all too well. Hmmmm–another worthy leader for a faith based Christian to follow?
Moving on, the Republican Party has not reduced federal outlays once in 50 years. They grew the Department of Ed to its highest staffing levels under Bush and brought in “No Child Left Behind.” George Bush adopted UN Standards which became “Common Core”. Conservatives love it (I’m being sarcastic). More brilliant leadership to support.
Mike, you will love the fact that the majority of GOP Presidential nominees are in Vegas courting the casinos for their money and obtaining it to the tune of $100+ million dollars. You know what concessions are going to be made for that money. The GOP and gambling–Great progress for the American family (Look for internet gaming in your homes the next election cycle)!
Finally, it is OK to overlook entities of greed and protectionism if they are the largest donors of the Party? Exempting banks from the free market by letting them set interest rates. Promoting price fixing in Medicare for Pharmaceuticals. Giving oil companies subsidies and tax breaks because they are donors. Bail Outs on Wall Street because this is the single best donor source. These are not right Mike.
Republicans may drive even more Democrats to hate capitalism because they don’t allow free markets for donors that will do the most good for all people. How can you preach free markets when you don’t enact these clauses for your top donors? This form of capitalism we have is not really capitalism. We have the government involved in so many industries. We have Republicans passing favors for their donor industries. Both are wrong. Many are blind to the fact that this protectionism for the health care industry combined with government guarantees of providing the general welfare created this disaster in healthcare and pushed people to socialized medicine. High prices are partly to blame for protectionism of the medical professions, hospitals, drugs, etc. I’ve given the GOP candidate in this race 3 months to go on the record on many of these anti-competitive practices on these topics but he has refused to address the concerns.
We must fight for free markets that benefit the most people. Our donors are OK with free markets for their own businesses. They are not afraid of competition. This is why they are strong Independent conservatives and ready to lead. Competition & Debate– Independent Conservatives say, “Anywhere, Anytime.” Republican conservatives say, “Does this help me profit or win?”
Now in the midst of crying about Senator Harry Reid’s lack of debate of bills, they are OK with Representative and Speaker of the House Boehner not bringing passed bills to the floor to debate. Ah yes, compromising to the least common denominator as opposed to leading with principles. In our state, Republican candidates are not debating their opponents. I’m sure you understand the definition of Hypocrisy. The Republicans do not have one leg to stand on with Senator Harry Reid if they don’t have the guts to debate themselves. Furthermore, they fight and testify to continue to limit my voting rights as an Independent at the ballot box in our state legislature. What a way to fight for free speech and Democracy for 42% of the American public (a smaller subset in Nebraska).
More importantly, I’m the only Nebraska conservative in the major races carrying the conservative arguments in the public square (apologies to Lee Terry and Pete Ricketts) because Republicans are not strong enough to deliver a conservative platform speech in the Senate race. Many Republican leaders feel it will cost them votes delivering the message outside their “Holy Huddle”. If you think believers can’t talk God outside the church, come to the Republican Party in Nebraska where they can’t talk conservative values in a room of people that have different ideologies. It is inspiring new numbers to the movement (sarcasm). Again, full apologies to the 2nd district and the governor’s race where Republicans have “Manned Up” and debated their opponents. I’m frankly tired of both conservatives and believers that speak loud all day in their safe environment but coward in the corner when it is time to speak values in public. “Popular” over “Right” wins all day long. The fear of what the others may say or speak keeps most silent. Trust me, it is a blast speaking conservative principles when Domina supporters are bussed in for the statewide debate. Full credit to the Domina supporters though. They have been very supportive of letting me speak. I wish conservatives would show the same level of respect to those with different views. Instead, Republicans (as a whole) try to control speech on the floor of the House and the public square of democratic elections. I know this first hand.
The lack of confidence to stand for conservative values in the public square is a national crisis. I’m frankly tired of their preaching to their crowd, and folding when you need a conservative voice carried in the PUBLIC square. How in the world are you going to convert anyone when you only speak to like-minded people at like-minded gatherings who mostly rally behind statements of “Fear” of Obama? Preaching to the choir is easy. Rallying a crowd on “Fear” is not leadership. The only thing we need to Fear is God–not Obama. Some of us are comfortable in standing “For” something. Rallying people around fear have created some of the most toxic world events in history. People need leaders not fear mongers. People need answers to their tough questions before they vote.
Furthermore, we can push new agenda items that Democrats believe in but Republicans are clueless on because they have not taken the time to study the structure. The oppression of the poor continues to be the result by advocating for Wall Street Banks ownership of the Federal Reserve and our monetary system. The argument should have nothing to do with how much money they have. The argument has everything to do with how unconstitutional the system is. We are not talking about reallocation of money or handouts. What we are talking about is a system that fundamentally oppresses the poor and devalues work in favor of capital. Abraham Lincoln always believed “Labor was Superior to Capital”. Now we have Capital superior to Labor in the Republican Party of which he was a founding influence. We have a compromise to capital over the Constitution (will not agree to Article I, Section 8, Clause 5) because it is funding the propaganda on TV, signs, buses, and shirts. This statement has nothing to do with Unions. This has everything to do with valuing hard work over money created out of thin air via fiat in New York City.
Christ threw over the “Money Changing” tables for a reason. Why are we hugging them? Pro-Capitalism must be set up with a Constitutional framework that does not give favors to donors (those with capital). If we fixed our monetary system to a Constitutional format we can help those that work hard and diminish this unjust class divide created by a system in favor of those who have access to capital over those that work hard. This does not mean income equality. It means the system is just and promotes the values of hard work again.
Mike, the great thing is Democrats (at least in Nebraska) are jumping on board with this purer Constitutional view. They know I care for them the same. They know I’m looking to create a fair framework for all citizens. The rejection of PAC money has actually been liberating. They know I’m shooting them straight and not pulling donor lines.
On the whole, democrats fundamentally care for the poor and they think the Republicans do not do that. Frankly, they are often right. They know I care for the very least in our society. They know it’s genuine. We still disagree in how to care, but they are listening. At the end of the day, leaders in government should be leading the “Justice” for the poor–especially in the courts where Biblical guidance is clear. We should be demonstrating care for the poor at the personal level outside of government. Some do that, but some do not. Clearly, this is not leadership by example with many in the the GOP or Democratic Party (although I know more of it exists as many try to observe Biblical privacy doctrine–I can relate).
We don’t agree on “providing” the general welfare (Liberals vs. Conservatives), but I have found common ground with many in “workfare” for the able bodied. In fact, work isn’t really a hand out. We spend money on civil services on work every day. Is giving an individual a job to work on our infrastructure really a handout? I think it is hard work and a worthy pay check for a much needed service. As we crank our economy back to full tilt when we get our monetary system right, we can fill this employment gap with work for infrastructure and eliminate able bodied welfare handouts. Many, not all, Democrats are jumping on board with hard work for help. They are rejecting handouts as they know the oppression this system is really creating on the people. They are looking for a different avenue to help. We are offering an alternative instead of no solution. This makes sense to people on both sides of the aisle.
I have found many Democrats on board when we fight for “Establishing Justice” and “Equality Under the Law” and quit passing favors for large donors that create this inequality. The Constitution is still treasured by both sides of the isle (especially moderate Democrats and many Republicans who still don’t understand or will face up to the corruption of the power base of the National Party). Many Nebraska Democrats believe in pro-life, justice, and a fair opportunity for the poor. Many of these values should not be labeled with “Conservative”. These are beliefs that unite people. Conservative and liberal have connotations that many revolt from.
Mike, you are welcome here. We would love to add your voice to Biblically based Independents who realize both NATIONAL parties have no rudders, are corrupt, and lost. You don’t have to agree with everything an individual says that is an Independent. We still have different views on many civil issues but Biblical Independents agree on so called “Conservative” fundamentals. You are free to own your own opinion. I’m personally on board with a Biblical standard. We have not found this to be unanimously loved by either Republican or Democrat. There is a large group of Republicans who believe in civil liberties with no limitations of a moral code that is foundational to our Common Law system. Ironically enough it was Obama who said, “Law IS the codification of morality”. It is just a question of what standard of morality that is. Many believe in the Biblical standard.
We have too many Christian’s who are OK to compromise right to win. It is all about power. They believe ‘win’ creates results. The reality is God owns the results based on the declaration of our vote (if 25% of believers even show up and vote) and exercise of our conscious before we act. Many Democrats and Republicans have lost the belief that God is in control. They believe the parties in charge are. You can provide leadership on that topic.
There is a crisis in the Republican party of people more concerned with money/power then right. We know we can rebuild ‘conservative’ values when we don’t tolerate injustice and promote values of truth as opposed to compromising positions for money and power. I know you stand for right before God per your conscious. You understand the “Fear of God” and the account we will have to give to God. I believe this motivates you more than short term power positions.
Standing for right is what we are trying to do as God fearing Independents. I will tell you we try to avoid the word “Conservative” and “Liberal” at the door. We call it a Biblical view. Some views are incomplete but many have a solid intent. I’m sure you can add to this discussion. Yes, many of those views are conservative but there are topics like oppression, justice, etc. that have not been advocated for very well by ‘conservatives’.
A strong Biblical view is welcome. The party does a poor job of representing moral values. The label pushes many God fearing Democrats away. There are many Democrats labeled by birth then by belief. They are welcome here. All are welcome here. Furthermore, we avoid demonizing dissenters. We don’t feel this will win a person over. We try to lead sheep– Not beat sheep as the saying goes. We are united and push this agenda of Biblical values.
A word of caution though, you will be discriminated against as an Independent. Be prepared. Talking God outside of Republican is a foreign concept for many. Many believers (in the midwest) are entrenched Republicans. I’m not welcome on Christian radio because they are concerned on “winning” even though I’m the only one that has said the word “Jesus” in public debates. I haven’t had my ideology questioned by believers but many are publically interested in Republicans winning. To be more accurate, they are concerned with Democrats losing.
Many faith based organizations will not stand by you. I’ve given my time in marches, made my declarations but endorsements do not come based on your stated positions. They are nervous this would split the Republican vote. Many of these organizations will blanket support Republicans on key stances. They no longer endorse based on charachter of the person but they endorse based on the interests of winning. They believe winning is what determines outcomes. Independents require further evaluation and stated positions are often not trusted due to the “Fear of Obama” as I’m learning.
Standing for values is only welcome if it helps “their” party. Again, this is not a value shared by all Republicans but is believed by many card carrying members. We have had outstanding people of faith that are die hard Republicans support this campaign. We have had people of faith that are Democrats and support this campaign. There are a great deal of people who still evaluate you based on merit of what you stand for. This is our emphasis. We need people to start evaluatiing people on stances and charachter and not on labels. These people will stand and support you if they like what you say. They are the party people we treasure because they believe in “Encouragement” – another lost value in many circles. However, I want you to be prepared that several people of faith will desert you because you publically do not endorse the “R”. This is Biblical as well too. Labels over belief were important back then too.
Furthermore, you will need large amounts of private money to get your message out. A large chunk of the power brokers in money/media are tied to the party. They have several avenues of the media sewed up. Many members of the media will not cover you unless you buy ads, AND if you do not pose a danger to accomplishing winning of ‘their candidate. They have their opinions too they like to promote. That happens both ways (“R” vs. “D”). We are still working on the joint venture between Fox and CNN for the Independent Channel 😉
The belief in civic coverage is not there anymore for many outlets. They believe you need to pay for all media coverage before you are covered. This is not true of all outlets. I’ve been fortunate to have been covered by many outlets who believe in civic coverage and debate. I’m very thankful for their work. I want to make sure I don’t “lump” all of them into this unfair label. I’ve been truly blessed with fair and independent coverage in the media across my state. I will always be grateful for these people that are dedicated to covering content and debate to educate their consumers. If I win, I know who I will be conversing with first to communicate my message.
Mike, you are a large domino that needs to fall to weaken a corrupt party or bring a wake up call. It may be a ‘better’ option but I don’t think God cares too much for an institution that is “less bad”. It is time we have a new movement grounded in the Constitution, God’s guidance for his entire creation to flourish, and justice of which Romans 13 calls us to create in government. The challenge is to destroy the stigma that this it does not act in the best interest of all people. We need to trumpet Proverbs 29:2, “When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice, when the wicked rule, the people grumble.”
I, Todd Watson, Independent Candidate for US Senate would appreciate your support this election. There is already a large base of conservative Independents standing for God. We would welcome your voice to a fast growing group! You could provide many with a God fearing compass, and worthy national leadership to follow.
I assure you this Independent God fearing group is multiplying. More believers are right there and ready to follow. They have talked to me. They are just scared to “jump”. They are fighting their own conscious. ‘Winning’ versus ‘right’ is a tough American concept. They are scared to follow ‘Right’ for what ‘They Believe’ this may cost them. The powder keg is ready to be lit Mike. A national leader changing like you would be monumental. It may not bring you power but I think God is ready to bless a big change of loyalty from poor leadership to God fearing leaders. I know he is hungry for leaders to be loyal to him first. I believe he is ready for those who have not put their trust in money over him. I believe he is ready for leaders who put their trust in God before “Chariots” and “Horses”. I believe he is ready for those who put their faith in him before government and before self.
I know he has taken care of me in a miraculous way this year. We are winning, but not ‘winning’. People are sorry for me because of poll numbers. However, we have identified the strong ready to stand firm. I actually feel lucky to be called to this work. I feel even more blessed by the amazing followers who volunteer for free because they support the cause. I feel sorrier for those willing to compromise. I truly believe that a compromised vote is going to have consequences this time around. They have choices they have not had in the past. They don’t need to feel sorry for me. I know what Big Government, Big Money, and lost leadership will do for them.
I know God has my back. This doesn’t mean everything is always pleasant (quite the opposite), but it does bring contentment. Unfortunately, I see people who have faith in parties or candidates pledged to money and bad leadership. Many Republicans are good but we forget who we align with can determine their outcome. That is the blind spot. The partnerships of these candidates are there to be discoverd but that would take more work then the average voter is willing to give. Thank you for bringing to light the compromising of one of the partnerships–the National Party. We could use your help to set them free from poor leadership! I implore you to take the final step Mike. My phone line is open. Todd
September 8, 2014
(I’ve put a place marker of this video on my YouTube Channel – Todd Watson)
Don’t watch this unless you have the 90 minutes to set aside and think. This may rule out most of this electorate. The media who take their cues from the national agenda will not cover as they probably have not studied the topic. However, ignorance is not my problem. My job is to speak truth. The video does it more eloquently then I do. Many conservatives will be surprised to see many fellow Republicans (those in the minority) speaking out on the same topic. Not all Republicans believe in group think. Rand Paul, Ron Paul, Pat Buchannan, Glenn Beck, Abe Lincoln, are a few who share the view.
This is one of the best documentaries explaining the power of the Fed. Most people compare me to a Republican Conservative. Those that do, really have no clue how the banking system or monetary policy works. Yes, we do share a belief against Big Government. However, we are miles apart on monetary policy and their relationships with Banks. I do not concede to Wall Street for their money to obtain political power (if you only knew how big of a problem this really is). My Republican competitor will not address if he will uphold THIS PART of the Constitution. This is why I define myself as a Conservative Populist and not a Conservative Republican. Those that think I’m splitting the vote don’t understand how how far apart we are on banking and thus liberty.
I can easily show you how much control money and the system of credit has over your life. Once you understand we are miles apart on this issue–you will not see us as close options. You either believe New York should or should not have control over your life. We are miles apart on the role of Wall Street banks as defined by the original Constitution and in policy.
The problem is most conservatives have never investigated the functioning of the banking institutions (Wall Street) to understand why it is a problem. They are too busy making money to do their civic obligation and understand how the Constitution designed money to be created. Yet, many inherently know that Wall Street is full of greed and something is wrong. They need to put two and two together and unravel the code.
The next step in the evolution of thought is to really understand the banking system is not a free market. Does your business get access to printed money and set interest rates or other instruments of the economy? Of couse not. This is why they are not capitalistic. They control the supply of money and set (as oppose to the market) interest rates.
People need to understand how the economies of the world and the people are being controlled by the halls of credit. Big Banks control our lives as much, if not more than, Big Government. Like Thomas Jefferson, I stand against both Big Government AND Big Banking because both destroy liberty.
We were about destroyed in 2007 from Wall Street. The mere fact they contribute the most money to the party after a decade where they required billions in bailouts should have many scratching their heads and asking “Why and How?”
Taxpayers bailed Wall Street out at a growing cost to the general welfare. Inflation in the marketplace is how they paid for their problem (Quantitative Easing). The poor’s real problem is not minimum wage, but regaining buying power with the dollars they earn. The banks easily destroy wage gains with quantitative easing.
The destruction on Wall Street came after the 2001 destruction at the World Trade Center. The site where George Washington created the spiritual and foundational roots of this country (New York-Lower Manhattan). The 2007 destruction on Wall Street, the failings of Corporate Facism, was followed by an ever growing influence of the government over our lives post 9/11 (a move towards socialism). Spiritual blinding, Corporate Facism, and Socialistic trends are three facets on why I will continue to speak to the fact that we must rejuvenate our economic, political, and spiritual foundations. This is necessary if we really care about Ensuring the Blessing of Liberty for Ourselves and Our Posterity called for by our Constitution. We have had the spiritual warning signs, the Fascism warning signs, and now the Socialism warning signs. The failure of all three institutions are the problems. One institutional recovery of liberty by compromising to another institution of liberty destruction is not the answer. This is called ‘spinning our wheels’ and why the two party system has failed us the last 50 years (the last time we actually cut federal outlays).
Our Constitution calls us to, “Ensure the Blessings of Liberty for Ourselves and Our Posterity”. An individual must define blessings, liberty, and posterity to understand that calling (Hint-do that now). Blessings, Liberty, and Posterity is very easy to view in the Webster dictionary. Blessings and posterity is very easy to move forward on. However, liberty takes more research from our founders.
Thomas Jefferson points out that the greatest threats to liberty are banking institutions, not standing armies (Let that sink in). Furthermore, Big Government creates tyranny (anti-liberty). Once you realize this is true you will seek to rebuild spiritual, political, AND economic foundations (our system of banking & credit) back to their Constitutional roots and stand with neither party who cannot see or will not participate or encourage all three necessary rebuilds to regain liberty for our nation.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge…
The lack of knowledge on the banking system is a strong aspect destroying God’s people. Because no one was alive when the current system was created, (1913) people accept it as Capitalistic when in reality it is a controlled and Fascist operation.
Very simply, the purchasing power of a dollar was the same in 1792 as it was in 1910 (Wikipedia). In the first 7 years after the Federal Reserve was passed (1913) by Woodrow Wilson (an ex College President who agreed to J.D. Rockefeller – Oil and J.P. Morgan – Banking–sound ironic to the format of a Republican candidate today?) the dollar became fifty cents. Today the dollar is worth approximately 4 cents compared to 1910. The Fed equals dollar destruction.
We could solve COLA’s, fixed income buying power, solvency of social security, driving the economic engine, minimum wage, and on and on if we dealt with the Fed. However, the public is numbed (intentionally) to the Fed being a critical issue. They want to focus on the hot topic on Fox and CNN but pay little attention to the head of the snake that can fix half our problems related to fiscal challenges. One way to change a Conservatives mind is to tell them the Income Tax was not necessary before the Federal Reserve. That is a good way to get their attention if they can’t follow the line of thinking of the Federal Reserve. They still talk taxes but they do not talk reserves. Talking zero taxes gets their attention and focus on the issue.
Regulating the creation and volume of money belongs to Congress not the Fed (See Article 1, Section 8, Clause 5). When you are sponsored by Big Banks you stay silent on this part of the Constitution. Make no mistake — your economy and life is being controlled by either money or government. They were meant to be controlled by neither. We must return money and government to be a tool and structure used to advance and not control society.
Enjoy the show on YouTube. Join me in a cause for liberty. You don’t have to compromise to a lesser evil this election. If you do…you will have no reason to complain when government and/or Wall Street control the fate of your liberty. You are responsible for your vote and you will know better after the video.
