“A new report on the government’s regulatory actions was released just before Thanksgiving, and it contains more than 3,300 rules -- which the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) estimates will cost more than $1.8 trillion to implement on an annual basis."
""Back in the '90s, the federal budget itself was not even $1.8 trillion," said Wayne Crews, vice president of policy for CEI. "Now we have this entire $1.8 trillion hidden tax, you could say, of government compliance and intervention cost imposed in the economy.""
Government created fake employment numbers back in 2010, and since the ‘jobs created’ numbers are additive, they are all acts of fraud on the American people: "Census ‘Fake’ gate goes back even further” (22)
The only obstacles to an economic recovery are the major pieces of legislation created by Democrats in the 2006-2008 Congress and signed into law by President Obama when he took office in 2009, and a number of restrictive and costly rules and regulations he's added since. In the meantime, many corporations are sitting on large sums of money due to uncertainty in the marketplace, unsure of what government will do next. There are now so many rules and regulations that some companies are going out of business, while others are finding other ways to stay in business or make a profit. There will be no meaningful jobs or economic recovery until Liberals/Democrats/Progressives/Communists are removed from key positions in government.
What is the solution?
Congress needs to vote to stop regulations that are getting in the way of an economic recovery, because Obama doesn't want to. The goal would be to force Obama to act on behalf of America and not his twisted vision of it, or to impeach him. Those regulations would be ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, and Obama regulations that are preventing jobs, reducing job hours or putting people out of work. We can always go back to needed regulations later, after a recovery.
The collective actions of the so-called 'champions of the people,' the Left, have caused this to happen:*
* The unemployment rate is a bold-face lie. It's much higher because many are not counted.
* 41% of working age Americans are not working, because they have no other choice.
* 20% of US adults now earn poverty level wages. (One of every four private sector workers earn less than $10/hour.)
* 40% of Americans work in low paying service jobs (and some of those are being lost to other countries).
* Since the start of the recession, in 2009, the government has added 590,000 jobs; the private sector has lost almost 8 million jobs.
* Since the so-called recovery, in 2010, the government has added 400,000 jobs; the private sector has lost 2.65 million jobs.
* (Keep in mind that all money must be first earned in the private sector, then taxed to pay for public sector jobs.)
* The average federal worker now earns 60% more than the average private sector worker.
* The US share of Global GDP has fallen from 31.8% in 2001 to 21.6% in 2011 -- it dropped about one-third in only 10 years.
* Nearly 100 million Americas are now participating in welfare programs, not counting Social Security or Medicare.
Eventually, the economy will collapse, and taxes will not be able to pay for any programs; and there will be riots that Obama and the DHS have been preparing for since 2009, instead of reducing regulations to prevent them. See the Jihad page.
The simple truth is, the last election was a disgrace to those with common sense values and pride in self-worth. But easily predictable given all the lies.
The lie with the most impact? The economy is recovering. The truth is, it is not. The Bureau of Labor Statistics left out all data from California and made up data by adding an absurd number of newly employed to lower the unemployment rate below 8% just before the election. (The unemployment rate in California and several other states is currently around 12%.) See comment in Notes.
The biggest lie? 'It's Bush's fault.' Proof that it never was President Bush's fault:
"A new study from the widely respected National Bureau of Economic Research released this week has confirmed beyond question that the left's race-baiting attacks on the housing market (the Community Reinvestment Act--enacted under Carter, made shockingly more aggressive under Clinton) is directly responsible for imploding the housing market and destroying the economy."
"Again, let's review:
-President Bush went to Congress repeatedly for years warning them that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to destroy the economy (17 times in 2008 alone). Democrats continuously ignored him, shut down his proposals along party lines and continued raiding the institutions for campaign contributions on their way down." ...
Skipping to the end of the report, "But non-Fox media have spent years deliberately and relentlessly inoculating people against the facts, training them to mindlessly blame Bush for being in charge when Democrat policies destroyed the economy. So here we sit, to this day, still watching Obama excuse and shrug off endless economic failures, illegal government takeovers and utter national bankruptcy with zero accountability."
Another version of the biggest lie is, President Obama says something liike, 'the economy was worse than we thought and can't easily be fixed; that it will take a very long time to fix.' Together, these lies gave false hope to Liberals, especially the ones who were unemployed, so that self-interest could prevail when giving their votes to President Obama.
The fool's lie: 'The words out that Romney didn't pay his taxes.' Seriously, does anyone really believe that the IRS let's anyone get away with not paying their taxes? Especially someone running for President of the United States?
The Economy by the Numbers
President Obama may tout numbers to try to convince us that what he is doing to help the economy is working, so I'd like to give you some references to help you make your own judgement. (Because of many variables, the real numbers are hard to quantify, so they are best guesses, and therefore debatable.)
In addition to the rolling average of about 350,000 newly unemployed workers each month that get added to the eight million workers that have lost their jobs because of the ongoing poor economy since President Obama took office, about 50,000 workers leave the workforce voluntarily. However, in a bad economy those 50,000 jobs are usually just filled by others within those companies. From those who were forced out of work, some will choose to retire early or seek disability. The rest, along with the 4 million already in the unemployment flux before the economic meltdown, will just wait for the economy to improve before looking for work again, while some will find part-time work.
In addition, each month about 80,000-90,000 finish school and try to enter the workforce, and about 70,000-80,000 legal immigrants also try to enter the workforce. This means that (using the lower numbers: 80K+70K =) 150,000 job seekers need acceptable work (not part-time survival work) just to keep the employment rate the same. The actual number of new hires per month, over the Obama presidency, has been about 135,000. So he can boast that his administration has helped to create (135,000 x 48 months =) about 6.5 million jobs, but the truth is that his administration's policies cannot even help the economy keep up with the growth of the workforce.
When we sort this all out, the actual untampered-with 'U3' unemployment rate (because, after only 4 months, the government no longer counts those who stopped looking for work) is 11.5-12% (not 7.9%), while the total looking for full-time work, the (U3+U4+U5=) 'U6', is 18-20%. (All these numbers are for laid-off workers - they do not include those who are trying to enter the workforce.) And millions who wanted to stay in the workforce are now burdening our Social Security, retirement, disability and welfare systems because they couldn't find acceptable employment.
The Reason for Impeachment
But the real truth is, our economy could be fixed in one day. Yes. One day! Or more practically, in one week. What's the proof? The proof is that our economy is nothing more than people, as companies, making things and selling things, and all of us buying whatever we want, multiplied trillions of times per year. That's all there is to it. The rest is just size and government complications. There is nothing complicated or mysterious about our economy. The only thing that gets in the way is government regulation. The truth is, the Obama government has the highest level of regulation this country has every had. For example, ObamaCare alone, has over 15,000 pages of regulations. Dodd-Frank is 'strangling' businesses. And his tens of thousands of regulators are busy creating rules in every industry, every day! These purposeful acts are the reasons for impeachment because they put rules above human suffering and the economic needs of the country.
"An avalanche of new federal regulations piled on during President Obama’s first term is costing Americans an added $70 billion a year, a new study found."
The one day, or one week fix, is to rollback the regulation, at least to a level that it can be absorbed, and our economy would take off like a jet plane, if the companies can afford the cost of the remaining new regulations. (We should also terminate as many regulation writers as possible or they will continue without end.) But for the business community to believe such a change in policy, the president must make an official declaration that stipulates that no new rules or regulations will be created or implemented for a period of time that would satisfy most business owners, with an additional commitment of no new taxes or retroactive penalties or taxes, otherwise it would be perceived as just a scam. The commitment period would probably need to be about five years.
Here is an example of a president who fails the test of both leadership and compassion:
The president promised to reduce red tape for the homeowners caught in the path of Hurricane Sandy, and is now on vacation. But here's what's happening to them: Flooded homeowners face foreclosure deluge in maze of red tape.
While America is suffering for jobs and millions are on food stamps and other forms of welfare, because of bloated budgets, government departments build TV studios to make their own movies for entertainment, and spend lavishly on government paid 'conferences and meeting' at extravagance locations. In fact, Washington is a boomtown, and none of it is earned because it's all your tax money!
"Wealth in Washington, DC has surged to the highest median income in the United States, surpassing even tech mecca Silicon Valley, California.
With a median household income of $119,134, the Census Bureau reports that Loudoun County, Virginia now occupies the number one spot for the highest median U.S. income. The number two position belongs to Fairfax County, Virginia at $105,797. Arlington, Virginia comes in third at $100,735.
In fact, seven of the ten counties with the highest household incomes are in the Washington region."
"Vice President Joe Biden’s entourage racked up nearly $1 million in hotel bills in Europe last month, and a new report says a night in Paris added limo costs of $321,000. The Obamas went on three vacations this year, and the first daughters are in the Bahamas.
Meanwhile, the administration still cries poverty to block public tours of the White House. “Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013, until further notice,” its website reads. “We very much regret having to take this action.”
What I've said so far is the good news! Because President Obama's forced economic depression and predictable unemployment have also prevented millions of young men and women from finding jobs, which has turned some of them into gang members spreading crime and drugs. And those gang members are growing in size throughout the country, while police forces shrink because of budget cuts.
"Large Cities All Over America Are Degenerating Into Gang-Infested War Zones
Large U.S. cities that the rest of the world used to look at in envy are now being transformed into gang-infested hellholes with skyrocketing crime rates. Cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Camden, East St. Louis, New Orleans and Oakland were once bustling with economic activity, but as industry has fled those communities poverty has exploded and so has criminal activity. Meanwhile, financial problems have caused all of those cities to significantly reduce their police forces. Sadly, this same pattern is being repeated in hundreds of communities all over the nation. The mainstream media loves to focus on mass shooters such as Adam Lanza, but the reality is that gang violence is a far greater problem in the United States than mass shooters ever will be. There are approximately 1.4 million gang members living in America today according to the FBI. That number has shot up by a whopping 40 percent just since 2009."
"In 2006, the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center reported that Mexican drug cartels were actively operating in 50 different U.S. cities. By 2010, that number had risen to 1,286." infowars.com, "Economic Collapse," January 7, 2013.
If President Obama doesn't push us over the edge, these problems won't go away by themselves, so even when the economy recovers, a future 'cleanup' will be a real problem to deal with.
To prevent circumstances like these from happening in the future, the second solution to fixing our problems is to prevent 'Wards of the State' -- those who depend completely on government for their livelihood -- from voting, because they can only be expected to vote in self-interest, not for what is best for the country. The reasons should be obvious. I am not talking about those who have earned Social Security -- I'm talking about those in government support programs because they cannot or will not work.
Comment 1: The way the government collects information and calculates the employment rate is so bizarre (and worthless) that it's possible to have 'no unemployment,' with tens of millions out of work, if for example, all the unemployed stop looking for work after 4 months (because they couldn't find any jobs) and businesses didn't lay off anyone else during that same 4-month period because they had all reached the bottom of their layoffs.
Comment 2: There are two major schools of thought in Economics: The Right has Free-Market economists while the Left has Keynesian or theoretical economists. And the reason that the Left is usually wrong is because they don't consider human behavior, probably because they don't understand it or don't care what humans do because they like to force things or control things. So when someone says, 'Economists say...' consider the source carefully.
