It’s the beginning of the election season for the President of the United States.  Where are we now compared to 7 years ago?

The economy has basically stabilized at low GDP growth 1-2.5% range.  The unemployment numbers are at 2009 levels, yet this seems clouded with out of the labor force numbers of nearly 94,000,000.  That’s a mighty big number, even if it were 1/4 that number 23,500,000 people, that’s huge!  Even 1/10th would be 9,400,000, very large indeed.  So employment is basically still terrible after 7 years.

After 7 years we’re pushed a media-propagandist driven agenda on a remarkable number of social ideologies which pitch one part of our citizens against another part of citizens furthering the division and divisiveness like we have never seen before.

Under the President he has either incorrectly judged or incorrectly decided foreign policy which has positioned America in a weaker position internationally.  Several of these situations include: Syria-Assad/Russia, Iraq-ISIS/L, Ukraine-Russia, Iran-Nuclear/Russia, Israel-Palestine, North Korea-South Korea, China-Currency Manipulation/Cyber Warfare.

Four years ago, we wrote an article which described 5 dominoes which may fall. While each area may have mutated from what was visible, these dominoes are real.  Take a look;  Another 4 Years, The Dominoes are Visible 

The Presidency is the toughest job in the world.  In fact, it’s become so complicated by special interests, by over-reaching authority that it’s stretched beyond it’s capability to operate with competency.  Look at the IRS scandal , as individuals extend their authority to harm citizens of opposing views and of course we hold no-one accountable !  We should be very afraid of this, consider the EPA, FCC, DOJ, DHS-TSA, BLM all of these alphabet soup agencies actually have very limited oversight, are fraught with such potential for agency abuse at the various leadership levels within each organization.  The abuse and potential yet to occur abuses have now outweighed the original usefulness of why the agencies was created in the first place!

This all suggests that less government, a constitutional based government is the only way to turn.   However, this is not and will not be reality unless the silent majority elects the right President, needed at precisely the right time, to pull back on government excesses, take control of fiscal responsibility, adheres to the rule of law and levels the playing field back in favor of the citizens and not special interest or the political elites!  November 2016 cannot come soon enough!

In an October 23, 2013 CBS article they explain;

“…Incredibly misleading for people that are trying to get a sense of what they’re paying.” said Industry Analyst, Jonathan Wu.  Wu points to how the website lumps people only into two broad categories: “49 or under” and “50 or older.”  Prices for everyone in the 49-or-under group are based on what a 27-year-old would pay. In the 50-or-older group, prices are based on what a 50-year-old would pay.

CBS ran the numbers for older Americans and found a huge difference of what was represented and what actually would be the price.  For example 62-year-old in Charlotte looking for the same basic plan would get a price estimate on the government website of $394. The actual price is $634.

Running the numbers for a 48-year-old in Charlotte, N.C., according to HealthCare.gov, she would pay $231 a month, but the actual plan on Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina’s website costs $360, more than 50 percent higher.  The difference: Blue Cross and Blue Shield requests your birthday before providing more accurate estimates.

What would happen to a company that represented it’s pricing this way?  They would inevitably be brought up on deceptive advertising at least and possibly fraud if an older or mentally challenged individual had difficulty in actually discerning the difference as they proceeded with purchase.

The reality of an average price would take the population 50 through 90’s and average theObama-and-Sebelius age of the population in that sample, most likely finding it skewing more toward 65 than 50.  Same with under 49, probably finding the average around 35.  In any case, why can’t they just say, born in this “year” or give the actual price, this is not beyond website technology, well for a private company anyway.

The Government should not be exempt from the wide array of Consumer Protection laws and the very administration created our very own Consumer Czar, Elizabeth Warren.  Where is she in all of this?

“Industry executives CBS News spoke with literally could not believe the government is providing these estimates, which they said were useless and could easily mislead consumers,”  NBC News, Jan Crawford said.

“They also say that the website repeatedly states the actual prices could be lower – but it makes no mention that they could be higher,” she added.  She has already called the website a “complete disaster,” and the Obamacare rollout a “complete failure.” On Friday, Crawford focused on the widely-acknowledged privacy risks surrounding the system, but adding that “the glitches have, in fact, made the website unusable for most.”

I’m watching the IRS hearings and find the lack of any responsibility by the leadership astounding.  These people receive a huge salary from the people of the United States, have taken an Oath of Office, yet IRS Abusethey don’t have a clue what’s going on, who’s in charge, who created the “inappropriate” questionnaires and ultimately stood by while many people in Cincinnati proceeded to violate the Constitution and people’s Civil Rights.

How can I get a job where I get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars, essentially I would be responsible for nothing, can fail in my job, can blame that it’s others but can’t remember any names?  AND keep my job!

We want these people to expand the government and be responsible for oversight of the Affordable HealthCare Act “ObamaCare”?

WAKE UP AMERICA, Apathy and incompetence reigns in our government.

Be afraid, very very afraid.

“What difference at this point does that make?

Those words will resonate for years to come.  As more testimony is coming forth from individuals who were on the ground at the time of the terrorist attack are being allowed to speak, we are finding, maybe it does make a lot of difference!

We were told from our President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Ambassador Susan Rice, that the attacks were caused by a video insulting the prophet Mohammad.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on September 12th, declares video is cause unplanned attack.

Ambassador Susan Rice on news Face the Nation on September 16th.

President Obama pushes this case at a United Nations Assembly on September 25th.

Libyan President Mohamed Magarief says it was a pre-planned act of Terrorism and why.

So as we are learning, this was a pre-planned attack as the cover up clears.  Here’s some more information coming out from hearings on May 8th involving Chief of Missions in Libya.

From other testimony of Chief of Missions Gregory Hicks we’ve learned the following from first hand testimony.

BREAKING NEWS:  ABC has learned that narrative that the Obama Administration were using to describe the attack in Benghazi were changed 12 times, here is the  12 Talking Points that were in fact changed to lie about the idea that it was a youtube video.

Was there a cover up?   What’s your thoughts?  What should happen next?

How many of us could go to work for over 3 years and fail to deliver on your basic job requirements and not get fired? Well that’s exactly what we have with Senator Harry Reid.  On October 29, 2012 it will have been 3.5 years or 1277 days without a budget.

So how does the government work then without a budget?  It’s simple, they are operating on the budget which was put in place from 2009. This is when Nancy Pelosi controlled the House. That budget was passed by the Senate, Harry Reid, and signed by the President Barack Obama. That budget which is the highest budget we have ever seen, this annual budget is what the country is running on for the past 3 years. Is it any wonder we are overspending?

HOWEVER, since 2009, the House of Representatives have passed several budgets and sent to the Senate which have been not voted on by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.  We need to demand a change.  Harry Reid has sworn to uphold and defend the constitution and all laws.  Yet he has been derelict of duty for over 3 years.   Where is the leadership in Washington?  Our own President has shown ZERO leadership.  Why?

Well both Harry Reid and Barack Obama are fundamentally ok with running the government with the 2009 budget, simply put, it’s large enough to do what they want.

Looking ahead to the end of the year is the Fiscal Cliff.  Why hasn’t the President or Harry Reid as leaders of the government stepped up and are trying to prevent this?  Well simply put, both will blame the Republicans.   They are ok with having all the increases in taxes, after all it gives them even more money to spend.  As long as they can blame the Republicans, they’ll keep spending.

It’s clearly time for a change.  In addition to having a change in the Presidency, we need a change in the leadership in the Senate.   Let’s hope we get some real change in 2013!
