It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed and the treachery of their leaders.

When a person becomes a known and repeated liar, eventually nothing he/she says is credible, even on the rare occasions when he may tell the truth.

Any statement of the past or present is viewed as a work of fiction. Any promise will not be trusted.

So the question for the minority of you who still support Donald Trump is: WHY?

The man almost never stops lying. What he tells you rarely is accurate. What he promises for you will not happen. And what he does invariably hurts your country.

“I am sitting in the Oval Office with a pen in hand, waiting for our senators to give it to me.”

Here is a man who declared he would sign any — ANY — anti-Obamacare bill that came out of Congress, no matter how many people it deprived of health care, no matter the cost, no matter the fallout.

He wasn’t asking what beneficial features or what harmful features the bill had. He was just sitting there, as he said, “pen in hand,” willing to sign anything.

This is the President of the United States, the most powerful man in the world, wanting to sign any bill just so he could say he accomplished something.

Is this the man you trust to act responsibly as President? When you cast your vote, is this what you expected?

And as for lying, do you know of any President, any politician, any human being, who lies as continually as Donald J. Trump? He lies during his rallies. He lies in his tweets. He lies during interviews. He even lies to the Boy Scouts, for heaven’s sake. There is no time, when he is talking or writing, that he is not lying.

Trump’s Lies

So again, the question for the minority of you who still support Donald Trump is: WHY?

What is it that Trump has done for you, is doing for you, or will do for you that makes you support him? And how do you really know what he has done, is doing or will do?

You might say it doesn’t matter whether or not you support him, because he is President and your support or non-support means nothing.  But that wouldn’t be true. Your support or non-support is vital.

The key now is Congress. If you contact your Senators and Congressperson, and if you write to your local media, indicating your dissatisfaction with a lying, ignorant, immoral, “do-nothing-but-play-golf-on-his-properties” President, the Republicans in Congress will turn away from him.

Then, the two parties can begin to work together, as they normally have done in the past, to benefit America, and not just to win.

Congress is not a zero-sum game, where if one party wins that means the other party loses. America has many problems that sincere politicians (yes, they exist) can solve if only the pressure to follow the party line were eased.

Trump is a menace to America. His hate-based ideology is alien to our America spirit. His lies are corrosive. He is a terrible role model and an awful symbol for our nation. No one trusts him — not any other nation, not the majority of Americans, not the people he hires and then fires if they don’t put him ahead of the country.

He claims to be a great negotiator, but who would negotiate with a man whose statements are known to be lies and whose promises are known to be false?  Why would anyone?

If you make it clear to Congress that you do not support his lies, his ignorance,  and his cruelty, Congress will take him out of the equation, and do its work to benefit you, not to benefit him.

It can be done. It has been done. It must be done.

It’s up to you.

Monetary Sovereignty

THOUGHTS

•All we have are partial solutions; the best we can do is try.

•Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.

•Any monetarily NON-sovereign government — be it city, county, state or nation — that runs an ongoing trade deficit, eventually will run out of money no matter how much it taxes its citizens.

•The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes..

•No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth.

•Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.

•A growing economy requires a growing supply of money (GDP = Federal Spending + Non-federal Spending + Net Exports)

•Deficit spending grows the supply of money

•The limit to federal deficit spending is an inflation that cannot be cured with interest rate control. The limit to non-federal deficit spending is the ability to borrow.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Progressives think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.

•The single most important problem in economics is the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Austerity is the government’s method for widening the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the Gap between the rich and the rest..
