545 PEOPLE--By Charlie Reese

545 PEOPLE--By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them..

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits..... The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red ..

If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it's because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power..

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it......... Is up to you.
This might be funny if it weren't so darned true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:
Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table,
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.
Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid...

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax..
Accounts Receivable Tax
Building Permit Tax
CDL license Tax

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'

I'm not sure how to get this out where more can see it...if you do go ahead.

Venting at Steny Hoyer - submitted email message

This is what I just sent to Steny Hoyer via email:

"You are a dishonest corrupt politician who has now made it more clear than ever that you are our sworn enemy. We the people lost this battle, but we are on our way of taking back our country.

We are now more resolute than ever and rallying the masses to unite to defeat you!

You will not win this war!

I hope you enjoy your retirement and please don't do too much more damage to America during your last few months in office. You never would have remained in office for so long had we the people not been asleep at the wheel. Never again will we allow self seekers of power like yourself, Marxists, and naive busy body do gooders conspire against us as you have gotten away with for so long.

How do you sleep at night?

Seriously! What did you think we would think of your back room deals, secret meetings, arm twisting, complete disregard to our constitution and economic sensibility? You straight up ignored the voice and will of the people!

To push this evil health care bill through on the Sabbath was as if to hit us and God himself with a final slap in the face! You made me sick to my stomach. I am utterly disgusted!

Furthermore, that wasn't enough for you sick people! To add insult to injury, you pranced around outside like a troop of evil clowns with big conniving grins on your faces; you and Nancy Pelosi with that big oversized cartoon looking gavel! I am so furious with you and the entire congress!

What has become of my beloved America?

May God have mercy on your soul!"

Let's let them hear how we feel. Venting is therapeutic. I was outside talking with my neighbor the other day and he told me about his disgruntled message he sent to congressman Hoyer. It's contagious I tell you. For a practical way to really get rid of these yahoos, check out

The Reagan Obama Debate

ok all you Reagan haters and Obama haters, freedom loving capitalists and tyrannical Marxist communists; take a look at this and debate
Ronald Reagan blows away Barack Hussein Obama on socialism, healthcare, the Consititution and Liberty.
Mark Levin played this on his radio show on March 9, 2010

It's quite an eye opener to see them back to back isn't it.

my political activisim story - a response to Michael Berry guest hosting the Mark Levin show on March 5 2010

This is what I sent to former mayor of Houston and radio talk show host Michael Berry on facebook:

I was listening to the podcast from Mark's show the other night when you hosted and asked people to tell their stories about getting involved. Well, I'm 39 yrs old, like you, and I've always been conservative; now I think more libertarian. I'm married with 4 kids, church going, baseball coaching, boy scout leading, regular every day American. But, all I've ever done politically is to show up to vote every couple years.

Well that all changed during the last election. One day, I think it was when Romney dropped out and I wasn't too big on McCain, I looked at my wife and said "I think we'd better look into this Obama fellow"; I really knew nothing about the guy at that point. It took me all of about 45 minutes of internet research to see through the guy and know he was a silver tongued devil.

At that point I woke up from my comfortable complacency and remembered my oath I made when I enlisted in the Navy, and thought about the future for my children and decided to take action and not relent from that point on.

I started attending my local Republican committee meetings and putting up signs. I started doing research and started a blog:

I write to the editor of the local newspapers from time to time, and post to community web sites. I talk with neighbors, family, parishioners, and coworkers about what's happening with our country and our liberty.

I'm now treasurer for Ron Miller running for Maryland State Senate District 27 and am the GOOOH district leader for Maryland District 5. (Hoyer's district) (GOOOH stands for Get Out of Our House. see

So, as you can see, I'm very much involved now.

You're a great radio host. I always enjoy listening to you. Keep up the good work.

my message to Michael Berry made it into his notes for March 4, 2010 when he guest hosted for the Mark Levin show. See towards the bottom where it says "post from the Comfortable Complacency blog". (My name isn't included.) I was able to get a plug in for GOOOH and for Ron Miller. Whadya think ? kinda kewl, right? Seriously though, both Mark Levin and Michael Berry are awesome radio show hosts. If you haven't listened to them, give em a try. You'll either love them or hate them.

Dem Massa Blames Resignation On Vote Against Health Care - Article from RealClearPolitics

This is my new favorite Democrat: Representative Massa from New York.

He's a former sailor; Senior Chief. He talks about Wog Day; the initiation ceremony in the US Navy when you cross the equator aboard ship for the first time. Been there, done that, so I could relate.

What the Obama administration has done to him is despicable. So dirty and nasty; nothing to be proud of for sure.

But, hey, this is what the majority of U.S. citizens wanted. Hard core Marxism crossed with Chicago strong arm dirty politics. I guess, as long as the majority is happy; that's what matters. There should definitely be no surprises though; expect more of the same.

That dead fish ballerina Rahm Emanuel is a disgrace to not just Jews and Americans everywhere, but the entire human race. "Spawn of the Devil" Massa calls him. This is choice!

Abortion Coverage Dispute Divides House Dems

I am always disgusted how our country that is founded on the proposition that all humans have God given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, that murdering the most innocent among us is not only tolerated and allowed by law, but our money robbed from us by the government us used to finance this murder both within and without our country. What do you think our kind benevolent Father In Heaven thinks about this? I am thankful that there are some Democrats that are against this atrocity.

…how the county sheriff plays a powerful roll in the preservation of our rights and freedoms.
…what rights the constitution actually guarantees.
…why it’s important we not allow our means of self-defense to be taken from us.

The quote listed in the header of this blog is an abridgment of a quote of Ezra Taft Benson. Here it is in it's entirety:

In times as serious as these, we must not permit fear of criticism to keep us from doing our duty, even at the risk of our counsel being tabbed as political, as government becomes more and more entwined in our daily lives. In the crisis through which we are now passing, we have been fully warned. There are some of us who do not want to hear the message. It embarrasses us. The things which are threatening our lives, our welfare, our freedoms are the very things some of us have been condoning. Many do not want to be disturbed as they continue to enjoy their comfortable complacency. There can be no neutrality! We are, or we are not, on the side of the Lord! (Ezra Taft Benson, 1973)
