12-25 : Avert or Resign
They voted the "ax job" of the sequestration if their invented ad hoc super-committee did not come up with a budget agreement. They put a catastrophic consequence – a hyper-deflationary cut in government supply of spending money, combined with fatal cuts in our spendable income via increased taxes – onto the people. Their committee – supposedly operating under that gun – could not come up with a budget good for the economy that also keeps the government solvent.
There are four days left in which Congress will be convened – a few days in which an agreement can be made. Let both houses, when they convene, immediately put to a vote the following resolution with this contingency of honor: That if Congress fails to reach a compromise that averts a fall from the cliff – if they fail to pass a budget that avoids the economy-killing depression of purchasing power in the household, production and public sectors, as determined by the Congressional Budget Office – THEN THE LEADERSHIP OF BOTH PARTIES WILL BE ASKED TO RESIGN AND ALL COMMITTEE CHAIRS AND ALL THE TOP STAFFERS OF EACH CONGRESSMAN WILL BE FIRED.
Let us see if they can come to an agreement with such a voter gun to their heads! They voted for the super-committee machinery and deliberately filled it with the most ineffective people, making a failure to compromise a sure thing from the very start – Patty Murray "the soccer mom Senator" (she plays left wing) to co-chair it – and they put on the sequestration of spending – cuts in what the government spends on people, and cuts in the money that working people take home to provide directly for their families – as a consequence of that failure. This was EXACTLY the dream policy desired by Goldman Sachs and HSBC – the Money Power that put Congress in office.
So they created a committee that cannot succeed – and they stipulated that if the committee fails, the Bankers get their dream "austerity" package, which is ruin and debt slavery and tax slavery for the middle class – the sapping of the last of the people's economic power to stand on our own. I am one of the last authentic voices of the people. Their deal: We the Bankers' politicians will create a committee which must come to an agreement on how to come up with a perfect solution for the people – but if the committee members fail, we will automatically sequester all of the people's wealth and give it to the Bankers (for whom we work, although we never admit it).
In other words, we in Congress represent the people who are Democrats and the people who are Republicans and the people who are independents – but we really serve the Banks. So we create a phony committee, we tell the committee to come up with a perfect budget that pleases everybody, and we fill it with our least capable and most partisan people – some secretly working for the committee not to succeed. And if the committee fails to come to agreement, we take everything and give it to Goldman Sachs and the other international "creditors" via something we call the "fiscal cliff" – but it really involves taking several trillion dollars in purchasing power from circulation over the next decade – which will reduce Americans to an average standard of living approximating that of China.
In this way, Congress betrayed the people, but made it look like they were really trying to reach a solution: they pretended that the two parties couldn't agree on who to help more, Democrats or Republicans. As I predicted from the first, the committee was chosen to fail – and the consequence of the "cliff" was their secret intention all along: so each sitting Congressman – Democrat or Republican – can PRETEND that they were against the cliff, but that the OTHER PARTY was not being cooperative.
So now let the people present their Ultimatum. Immediately, all Americans – Democrat rank and file, Republican rank and file, and the independent and third-party affiliated,
LET US WITH ONE VOICE DEMAND THAT CONGRESS IMMEDIATELY PASS A RESOLUTION THAT CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP, INCLUDING ALL CHAIRMANSHIPS AND SENIOR RANKING POSITIONS ON COMMITTEES AND CONGRESSIONAL STAFF LEADERSHIP, WILL BE HONOR BOUND TO RESIGN THEIR POSITIONS IF THE SEQUESTRATION IS NOT AVOIDED IN THE REMAINING DAYS OF THE PRESENT CONGRESS;
AND FURTHERMORE, THAT ALL CURRENT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AGREE THAT IF THE CLIFF IS NOT AVERTED, THEY WILL NOT FOLLOW, IN THE NEXT CONGRESS, THE LEADERSHIP OF ANY REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR WHO WAS IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE SEQUESTRATION.
Short and sweet: We the people must unite – in groups, on the telephone, on the Internet – in a total life-or-death effort to express the will of the people in unmistakable terms: If the sequestration is not replaced by a budget that does not create deflationary disaster – as the cliff will if it is not avoided – Congressional leaders must resign and their top staffers be kept from further work on financial and revenue committees.
You understand the above. You know what is at stake. You know that you haven't in the last decade really mobilized yourself to get real political results. You have been a spectator. I know how you have ignored good advice – that every good proposal is lost in the endless sea of political noise, the babble of people who can't isolate what is essential to their welfare, who can't focus on what must be done to save the people.
I ask you to take this idea: the day we all came together so that good would triumph over evil.
Let future historians of American politics remember the day the people came together – a day remembered by all as 12-25:
