We are Taking a Trip to Suicide Cliff
Standing on Edge of Financial CliffWe are standing on the edge of The Financial Cliff in the heart land of America.
This is not a vacation trip but a serious trip into what could be the cemetery of this great nation. We arrived and noticed we are not the only ones looking to determine how far it is to the bottom and if there is any way to have a soft landing or must we parish?
We have elected men and women to solve the problems of this nation but they can't find the solution to this terrible situation; but our elected leaders just don't seem capable to make a decision about anything.
President Obama knows the cliff is there (he drove the vehicle that got us here)and if he doesn't get his way then we go off the cliff, or that is what he wants everyone to think, (if he doesn't get his way).
We don't even have enough parachutes (knowledge) for members of congress let alone Obama's administrations to save them and certainly it seems they don't care about the American people.
Can US Survive the Fall?
This cliff is and has been there for several years now and Obama wouldn't even let General Motors and Chrysler be sample sacrifices to see if they could survive the fall of a smaller cliff.
Now on the brink of a nation about to commit suicide our government just argues more and more about nothing. Well, egos are not just nothings to them, they are the only thing these idiots think important, and so, they argue to impress to the public they are the toughest.
Who is going to win?
Well I know who is going to lose. We the people are going to lose even those stupid ones who bought into Obama's line of BS, and they should be the first to go over the cliff.
Obama's Promise to The American People
Obama brought Mitt Romney into his office the other day and for what reason? Just to prove he is honest because he kept one promise to the American people.
I am not a president of anything but if we just had one person who wouldn't let his ego get in the way, maybe this is a scenario of what he might do.
Not only Mitt Romney would be in the office but every financial wizard, top business person even Donald Trump. The President of Ford Motors, Chrysler, GM, Wal-Mart, any of the fortune 500 companies and even a few small business members like 50 people who live with butts hanging out every day.
Financial Wizard Committee and Commission
Meet with them and select one man to head it up a financial wizard committee and commission him to select a circle of executives of his choice from those committee members to form a Planning Board to develop the system to fix our financial rear ends.
Make a deal with the Republican to postpone the cliff for one year while these men working with the President and congress develop a plan on how to build a bridge down the cliff for a safer exit onto the good road and into debt free society. Give these men freedom to develop this plan without interference from government.
Assign member of both parties to work with them but not to interfere.
They have a certain time to complete their plan, and then present it to the President and then present it to the nation.
The Spirit of America
This plan will be voted upon by congress and if they don't accept it, give it to the people to determine by vote- yes or no- an up or down vote. Get American people back into the spirit of America. That is what made us great and can again light the torch of freedom. Keep the people involved.
I believe among the great business men in this nation (small or large business) there will be some really good ideas and proven methods to get this problem solved.
I just don't believe we can do the necessary work to save this our economy, national debt and the other hurdles in our way, with Obama's people or those who are in congress.
US Committing Financial Suicide?
Egos are at stake and when we fight over ego's we look stupid and we appear too stupid for the American people to trust and these are the people you are proposing, they commit to financial suicide.
A government of the people by the people and for the people can only survive with and by the people.
