We are on our way to a corporate-controlled (fascist) state. We must stop it now before it is too late.

The Constitution which millions of us pledged to protect and defend when we joined the armed forces states in Article 1 Section 8, "The Congress shall have power to coin money and regulate the value thereof". It does not give that power to the private bankers of the Federal Reserve. They have bankrupted our country twice now. Congress must assert its constitutional power and tell the Wall Street gamblers and their friends at the Fed that party is over.

The recent health care legislation sets up independent health care boards to cut costs. Germany had similar entities in the 1930's. The President and the Congress have a responsibility to know this history and to protect the people from similar consequences. Failing to do so should merit removal from office. President Clinton was impeached for a transgression with no such possibly devastation consequences.

Under this bill mandated reductions in the cost of medical care are slated to occur in Medicare and Medicaid (to start). Thus, the poor, the disabled and the elderly are the first to be targeted. You will be later. Anyone who voted for this bill should be ashamed of himself. The President and his people who crafted it should resign or be impeached before they go after your social security.

Obama Must Act Now

Our troops in Afghanistan now occupy the drug producing area formerly occupied by the British. Why didn't the British, and why don't we bomb the drug labs in this area and destroy the dry crops. The street value of these drugs is estimated at $65 billion dollars, part of which goes to the Taliban who are killing our troops! Commander in Chief Obama has the power and the responsibility to deal a fatal blow to the drug trade. He should act now or resign.
