If you answered “False” to almost all of the above you probably are a Democrat or an independent depending on the number of False’s.

If you answered “True” to about half, you probably are a Republican or a RINO. You could slide either way.

If you answered “True” to more than half of the above, you are a Trump Republican.

Nice to discover who you really are, isn’t it? Proud of it?

……………………………………………………………………..

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics. Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps: Ten Steps To Prosperity:

  1. Eliminate FICA
  2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone
  3. Social Security for all
  4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
  5. Salary for attending school
  6. Eliminate federal taxes on business
  7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 
  8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
  9. Federal ownership of all banks
  10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

MONETARY SOVEREIGNTY

–Who are these people who want to continue DADT?

The debt hawks are to economics as the creationists are to biology. Those, who do not understand monetary sovereignty, do not understand economics. Cutting the federal deficit is the most ignorant and damaging step the federal government could take. It ranks ahead of the Hawley-Smoot Tariff.
================================================================================================================================================================

Who are these people who want to arrest and deport all undocumented non-citizens, as well as repeal the law that gives citizenship to everyone born here?

Who are these people who want to prevent a Muslim mosque two blocks distant from ground zero?

Who are these people who wish to repeal health care insurance for millions of people who otherwise could not afford to pay?

Who are these people who want to prevent gays from having the same marriage benefits as straights? Who are these people who want to continue the humiliating ‘Don’t ask; don’t tell” military policy? Who are these people who ordered the Pentagon to send a questionnaire asking soldiers their opinions about serving with gays and lesbians.

Asking soldiers their opinions??? Is this the way the army now is run? By survey? What next, a questionnaire asking, “How do you feel about being sent to Afghanistan and getting blown up by a roadside bomb?” Or perhaps, “How do you feel about taking orders you don’t like?” Will military policy be dictated by the answers?

One of the questions in the survey is, “If Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is repealed and you are assigned to bathroom facilities with an open bay shower that someone you believe to be a gay or lesbian Service member also used, which are you most likely to do?” What if instead of “gay and lesbian,” we substitute the word “black,” would that be appropriate? Or how about, “Muslim”? Good idea?

Who are these people who wrap themselves in the American flag, but have forgotten the words on the Statue of Liberty? Who are these people who wave their piety in your face, but deny the basic tenets of their religion and indeed, all religions?

The bigotry in America has ramped up. When economic times are bad, the devils and the saints show their true colors. You can tell the merit of people by the way they act in a life boat. Now that we share life boat America, listen to what is being said and look at what is being done, and ask yourself: “Who are these people?

No nation can tax itself into prosperity. Those who say the stimulus “didn’t work” remind me of the guy whose house is on fire. A neighbor runs with a garden hose and starts spraying, but the fire continues. The neighbor wants to call the fire department, which would bring the big hoses, but the guy says, “Don’t call. As you can see, water doesn’t put out fires.”
