January 2012 Update:
Congress: Voted August 2, 2011 to Increase the "Debt Ceiling"
NOW THE WHITE HOUSE HAS ASKED CONGRESS TO ALLOW IT AGAIN!
OUR ACTION ITEM FROM LAST YEAR HAS BEEN UPDATED.
WILL THERE BE ANOTHER FED DEBT DOWNGRADE
LAST YEAR'S NEWS: 5.16.11: Debt Limit Reached! Sky not falling....
4.6.11: Fox News Reports Poll -
So, what is a Health and Food Freedom NGO like Natural Solutions doing involved in the US Federal Government debt ceiling controversy? Why did we set up an Action item so you can educate decision makers, like our Congressional representatives? This important message from Natural Solutions Foundation President, Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (US Army, Ret.):
The Federal Govt's control over the States has been predicated on two factors: the Carrot (Federal spending) and the Stick (overwhelming military force, as it's had since the 1860s).
Where does the Fed Govt get the money it needs to exercise control over state and local govt employees, such as food safety officials? How does it have the power to force us to accept GMO "Phude" (it looks like food; maybe even smells and tastes a bit like food... but it is not!)?
Not so much from taxes anymore. It was John M. Keynes who opined that governments didn't need taxes to run, since central banks (like the Federal Reserve) could print up all the money they needed; taxes were needed in this view to "sop up" all that fiat currency in order to slow price inflation. No doubt, the Federal authorities will opt for more fiat money creation to maintain the control dollars create.
On one hand Federal grants to the states are tightening ("unfunded mandates") while on the other hand, the central authorities seek to exercise even more control over the localities.
Example: the new Food Control Law (misnamed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act) provides for "contracts" between the FDA and local food safety officials to fund and control the local officials.
So, if we are to give the States a chance to reassert state sovereignty, the Federal juggernaut needs to be held back.
How? By limiting its credit. More specifically, by no longer enabling its borrowing addiction.
Yes, the Government of the United States of America is behaving exactly like any other addict...
And with addicts, there is just one thing to do: JUST SAY NO!
It doesn't take the cooperation of any one else in the govt, including the Senate, President or Fed Reserve!
PLEASE use this Action Item daily to make it clear to our Representatives in the House that any who vote for any increase in the debt ceiling will not be returned to the House in 2012!
ZERO DEBT INCREASE TOLERANCE! NOT ONE PENNY MORE FEDERAL DEBT!
February 2011's huge deficit shows that the most important battle at this moment is the imminent vote in the House to raise the laughably misnamed and now 40 times raised "debt ceiling." See: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/mar/7/government-posts-biggest-monthly-deficit-ever/#
PLEASE use this "TinyURL" to forward this Action Item to all your contacts; we must make this Action Item go "viral!" In the past, millions of emails have been generated through our Educate Decision Makers system, and that PUSH BACK has had real impact; now it's time to speak out again!
