Constitutional Freedom Of The People. The congress under FDR, order the issue of war bonds to help pay down the war debt during World War II. The rich and wealthy at that time brought war bonds because of their pride in America, even after the attack on Pearl Harbor. This is Constitutional Freedom for all the people. This congress under President Obama’s Administration want to cut spending on Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, the poor and on the middle class to pay down this war debt. Without an increase in revenue. To help pay down this war debt after the attack on 9/11. Where is that pride of the rich and the wealthy today? No war bonds, just money for supper-PAC. This is more about campaigns, and not deficit reduction.
Members of congress need to get serious. This ten-year war debt can’t be paid down in one administration. After Eisenhower, was elected president. It took five years after World War II was over to recover from that war debt. This war on terrorism is on going for ten years, and will continue for years to come. This war on terrorism there will be no peace treaty. The only way we can declare victory is to prevent future attacks on the United States. And that responsibility has been Presidency of Barack Obama, as the Commander-in Chief.
The sole responsibility of congress in the legislative branch of government. And that is where and when our tax money is spent. When and where to increase revenue in times of war, and most important create a budget every fiscal year. So that we will not default on our government loans, and our domestic financial responsibility. Without a budget our economy has stalled, because of congress inaction. Our businesses are waiting for congress to pass a budget. So they can start hiring again. With so many unemployed. People are crying for more jobs. And our credit rating is down graded from AAA to AA. Thinks to congress. Their approval rating is the lowest in modern times. Congress want to kick the can down the road to our children and their grandchildren children to pay down this budget deficit.
When Members of congress sign a pledge to support a special interest group. They are not able to support all the people as in the constitution. It’s not a special interest group that elected these members into the office of congress. There are members in congress who want to restrict women health issue base on their religious belief. And add family value & religious policy to the constitution. Our founding fathers never intended for members of congress to write morality policies into our constitution. Family value should be implied in one’s home. Religious belief should be implied in one’s place of worship. The constitution was never intended to restrict one’s freedom of choice.
As Ronald Reagan said, “you can’t legislate morality.” Those who have such a strong belief in their religion should seek office in their place of worship. Those seeking office in government must be reminded this isn’t a Republican or Democratic Government. It’s the United States Government. Congress must remember that, “ours is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.” With a true democracy. We will have Constitutional Freedom Of The People.
