WHAT AMERICA NEEDS – A CONGRESS THAT ACTS INSTEAD OF FIGHTS!

What Congress has become in my lifetime is a body that spends most of their time developing ways to stop progress and develop political actions to divides the people instead of focusing on progress. I researched their responsibilities and found the following.  

1. Congress is the legislative, or lawmaking, branch of our national government. It shares power with the president and the Supreme Court. The writers of the U.S. Constitution thought Congress was so important, they listed it first! Congress has two parts, the Senate and the House of Representatives.

One thing is certain, Congress has lost its importance of being first as they have defaulted their power and the Presidents use executive powers to act to either help or hurt the people. We just had a President that did more to divide the people than every enemy we have had in our history. Now we have a President that is trying to unite the people and he is being combated by the Federal Courts, the Supreme Court and both the Democrats and Republicans in Congress. The people elected Trump to unite the people and the other two branches of government have stopped him from doing exactly what he promised to do when he was elected. Congress is dysfunctional and so divided it only debates and gets nothing done.

2. Congress has authority over financial and budgetary matters, through the enumerated power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States.

The Senate has not approved a budget in so long it should have its powers removed. If you look at the IRS alone the collection of taxes alone has become a major cost of governing and the people can no longer do their own taxes. I have a Masters in Business and I have been unable to do my taxes for over 25 years. The IRS has grown a lot faster than the economy by issuing 70,000 pages of rules that are changed daily. Trump promised a new tax system that would simplify the tax system and it has been over nine months for nothing to happen in Congress to help the people.

3. Congress has five main functions: lawmaking, representing the people, performing oversight, helping constituents, and educating the public.

Lawmaking created little while lawbreaking has become commonplace in our cities and many States. Federal Judges now make law, Our last President, Governors and Mayors openly ignore laws and nothing happens. Trump called Washington DC a “Swamp”. When a Federal Judge in Hawaii can make laws by decree the Swamp is a morass likely nationwide?

How many of those who read this have been helped by your Congressperson?

As far as educating the public Congress can’t even educate its members. The recent debacle over a Trump phone call is proof positive Congress has no control over its own members.

4. Through legislative debate and compromise, the U.S. Congress makes laws that influence our daily lives. It holds hearings to inform the legislative process, conducts investigations to oversee the executive branch, and serves as the voice of the people and the states in the federal government.

Now we get to the red meat. Congress has demonstrated that debate and compromise are two things that have become totally inoperative today. Congress has made laws that have devastated the people and our daily lives. Congress holds hearings to give face time to individuals who consistently prove they can’t ever agree that white is white or right is right. There are so many Congresspersons  begging for face time on the networks and in hearings I feel sure all 535 members have a hairdresser and a makeup professional to make sure their lipstick, powder and hair look professional.

5. What are the three powers of the Congress? Enumerated powers, or the expressed powers, are powers the Constitution explicitly grants to Congress, including the power to declare war and levy taxes.

I for one doubt that if we were attacked today by North Korea that Congress would be debating the issue to declare war for six months and the vote would be 52 to 48 in the Senate. Even the RINO Republicans would all hopefully vote to declare war. Well I have always been an optimists. If Ms Collins, Mr McCain, Ms Murkowski or Mr Paul rebelled against war, North Korea might gain control of the entire west coast states and Alaska. Maybe we should throw in Arizona, Illinois and New York?

What America needs first and now are jobs, jobs and jobs. Putting our welfare army to work will solve the National debt issue. Only term limits will correct the Congressional issues.

LIFE, A STRANGE JOURNEY!

Watching all of the violence on the news in between, prior to and after two horrible hurricanes gave me time to deeply evaluate some of my own life. It is hard to believe I have watched this great country go from rags to riches then slowly chart a course to self destruction in my 87 years. Sadly I have family that is so focused on socializing America it would not surprise me if I saw some of my own grandchildren on TV involved in useless demonstrations and property destruction before I croak. I really hope not.

When I entered adulthood, at 16 in my case, few high school graduates had any opportunity to attend college. I was certain there was nothing anyone could teach me as I knew everything. I have written before that one of the smartest decisions I ever made was enlisting in the US Navy at 17. Looking back I was better prepared for my trip through life than most of my classmates who were later drafted and served in the Korean war. If every American boy and girl were required to serve after high school or reaching the age of 18 in a federal program things would be different. The program would last only ninety days and be designed to transition and prepare them for adult life. This would result in America not having the insurrection we see today.  

Unfortunately this will never happen as the leadership in America has slowly disappeared. Today we have leaders that survive with power instead of wisdom. Watching the leadership of the Republican party since the last election has been sickening. We now have a born successful leader willing to give up a life of luxury to try to save the country from itself. Sadly he has been abandoned by his own Republican party in accomplishing needed change by people who have elevated their status to elite untouchables.

I really hope I live to see Donald Trump introduce these bureaucratic has beens to unemployment with term limits that they believe the people will not support. If the people want America to return to prosperity they will throw these power sick millionaires out of Congress and soon.

Nothing President Trump has done so far has made Congress happy. The media bias and outright hate have caused most of the insurrection to date. Our Federal Courts have been stuffed with so many Socialists Judges we are having a stand off only the people can settle. Lifetime appointments for these “elites” has created chaos that must eventually be stopped. The Supreme Court is a perfect example of bias as simple things are decided by political reasons rather than the laws in force. Again the people have the power. The current President is challenged for trying to implement the changes he promised when we elected him. I pray that we the people stand behind the first leader we have elected since Ronald Reagan or Socialism will be alive again to doom our Republic.

I want to close this limited walk through life by giving you advice whether you are 16 or 60. Regardless of your desires, expectations, wishes or prayers your destiny was programmed to end your life cycle the day you are born. You only have one trip so please enjoy every year you have by being happy. Watching these young Americans and aliens destroy property, inflict injury on innocent others makes me want to throw up. Free speech is the cornerstone requirement for freedom regardless of any reason. These riots remind me of the youth in Germany that were the tool used by Hitler to brainwash an entire country to self destruction.

How do you feel about the future? I wish enough people would comment on this article to let me share your feelings with others in another article. I will continue to share my conservative position as long as I draw a breath before the fat lady sings. I may not have many people read my work but the ones who do have my promise to keep trying to help make a difference.

AMERICA IS THROWING GOD AWAY- WHY?

Have you ever read the Preamble to your State Constitution or noticed the effort to remove God from our Pledge of Allegiance? If you will take the time to read the following Preambles from each of the 50 States you might be just as surprised as I was. Why is the American Civil Liberties Union so determined to remove God from our lives? Why is our President, Congress, liberal Democrats and the Federal Courts so focused on attacking our Christian faith and to accomplish what? They never explain why.

I want to thank my friend Allan Moore for sharing these facts with me and I hope you will share this with every American you know. Take special note that there is not one word in any of the State Preambles that force anyone to believe in God or attend any religious services.    C Brewer
